The Originators’ Northern Soul & the Fujifilm X-System

The Originators are a Dutch Northern Soul band from the Amsterdam-Utrecht area. Actually they are one of a very limited number of live-bands working that musical field today.

Back in June I had the opportunity to see them live on stage for my very first time and thought it might be a good opportunity to check out the super-low-light-gig-shooting abilities of the X-Pro 1 and and X-T1. To cut a long story short, it was worth every penny. I mean both, the admittance for the concert as well as the big bucks I’ve spent for the photo gear during the last months. Well, as to the second point I knew that before already.

The Originators are an eleven-strong bunch of highly gifted and professional musicians and they are performing a real strong show on stage. Personally I would always classify the gig amongst my favourite top ten of the last years. So, if you have the chance go and see them, I’m sure you won’t regret. If you like, find some more information here.

Finally, for the gear-heads: hardware for the evening was Fujifilm X-Pro1 and X-T1, Fujinon XF 18mm F2, XF 35mm F1.4, XF 56mm F1.2, XC 50-230mm F4.5-6.7 as well as Zeiss Touit 2.8/12mm.

Fujifilm X-T1, Fujinon XF 56mm and the streets of Berlin (Part 2)

So, here comes part 2 of my adventures in Berlin with the X-T1 and the XF56mmf1.2 R which turned to be my favourite lens during the last weeks. This time I tried to make monochrome magic work for me. For those who care about processing details: all shots were made in colour (mostly with VELVIA film simulation) and were converted to black and white in Photoshop and sometimes contrast enhanced. But that’s all about editing. No cropping or sharpening. Click to enlarge to full size.

Sorry for the little words. I’m quite busy these days. More to come as soon as possible.

So, hier kommt Teil 2 der Nachbesprechung meiner Erlebnisse in Berlin unter Zuhilfenahme der X-T1 und meines aktuellen Lieblingsobjektivs, dem XF56mmf1.2 R. Dieses Mal wenden wir uns ganz dem Graustufen-Voodoo zu. Für diejenigen, welche sich dafür interessieren: alle Fotos wurden in Farbe geschossen (meistens mit VELVIA-Filmsimulation) und anschließend im Photoshop in Schwarzweiss konvertiert, manchmal mit Kontraststeigerung. Das war aber auch schon alles aus dem Bereich Nachbearbeitung. Keine Ausschnittvergrößerungen und auch kein Nachschärfen. Zur Ansicht in voller Größe einfach Draufklicken.

Genug der Worte. Ich hab’ zu tun. Mehr in Kürze.

Fujifilm X-T1, Fujinon XF 56mm and the streets of Berlin (Part 1)

Recently I went to Berlin for some days and of course my new achievements the FUJIFILM X-T1 and the FUJINON LENS XF56mmF1.2 R had to go with me. I have to admit that it took some time to get used to the X-T1 as the controls are pretty much different to my old friend X-Pro1. But the more I worked with it and discovered its features the more I started loving it.

The other great delight was the FUJINON XF 56mm. Boy, what a lens. It stayed on the camera almost all of the time during my stay and became my favourite lens instantly.

Enough wourds. Let pictures speak. Click to enlarge to full size.

Vor einigen Tagen verbrachte ich einige Tage in Berlin und natürlich mussten meine beiden Neuanschaffungen, die Fujifilm X-T1 und das Fujinon XF 56mmF1.2 R mit dabei sein. Ich muss zugeben, dass es einige Tage dauerte, bis ich mich an die X-T1 gewöhnt hatte. Die Bedienelemente sind eben doch deutlich anders als die meiner alten Freundin X-Pro1. Aber je mehr ich damit arbeitete und die zahlreichen Features entdeckte, desto mehr fing ich an sie zu lieben.

Das andere Vergnügen war das Fujinon XF 56mm. Was für ein Objektiv. Das Teil blieb fast die ganze Zeit auf der Kamera und wurde praktisch sofort zu meiner neuen Lieblingsoptik.

Genug der Worte. Lasst Bilder sprechen. Alle Fotos sind für bestmögliche Beurteilung in voller Größe angelegt. Viel Spaß.
