Finally! Leica Lenses for the Fuji X-Pro1

Man! A day after I review the Kipon adapter, that I just got, for my Fuji X-Pro1 to accept Leica M Mount lenses, and Fuji announces that they have finally released their version of the adapter. That will teach me to be overly excited and impatient. The difference Fuji’s adapter has over the Kipon or Rainbow Imaging, and other third-party adapters is that is will have electronic signal contacts on the adapter along with a function button on the adapter that will tell the camera to automatically set the Menu option of “shoot without lens” to on and bring up […]

Fuji X-Pro1: Leica M mount to Fuji X mount Adapter Review

***Update*** June 12, 2012 With the release of the body firmware 1.10, Fujifilm has added custom frame lines to the optical viewfinder. So if you read the issues section below you will find that originally, there were no frame lines for your custom focal lengths. With the firmware upgrade, if you set the camera to 50mm or 18mm or 75mm you will get an approximate frame line that is fairly accurate. With lenses that are 15mm and 12mm the angle of view is wider than what the optical viewfinder shows so the camera lets you know this by putting a […]

Photography for Memory

I would like to apologize to my dedicated readers, that haven’t had a new post from me in a couple of days. If you have been following the site for a while you may have read that my Grandmother had a mild stroke and was in the hospital. Unfortunately, she has passed. As she did in life, she passed the way she wanted. Long story short, she recovered 100% only to pass in her home the same day she was released from the hospital. She just didn’t want to die in the hospital, very poetic. I apologize to those of […]
