My mothers experience shooting with the Fuji XPro 1 in Sri Lanka

Format Image

Recently my mother returned from a amazing trip shooting in Sri Lanka. There she shot with her X Pro 1 and a Variety of lenses the 18-55 2.8 the 55-200 the 14mm. I as her son and fellow photographer processed and edited her pictures in lightroom. I applied VSCO filters. I mainly utilised the Kodak Portra settings which together with mum we found the most pleasing. http://vsco.co
She found the focusing very frustrating with the camera. My point of view is its very quirky and you have to learn a whole different thought process when focusing with the camera. But when it worked boy did it work well. The lenses are sharp.

When you see the pictures there is grain present. I have put that in myself as we both like the aesthetic . I realise its not to everyones taste but I think they came up really well.

From her pictures we have completed a book project produced by Albumworks HD book. http://www.albumworks.com.au
There books are lovely unlike most book manufactures they print at a very high DPI of 2400 which producers super sharp and detailed printing. The whole process only took 4 days .

Review The I shoot Grip for the Fuji X Pro 1

The other day I took delivery of the iShoot grip for the X Pro 1. I shoot camera grip

This is a copy of a grip made in europe which is more than double the price of this one made in China.
The camera grip comes in at $69 so what is the quality like? It is quite incredible that this grip is a Chinese knockoff. It is made of well made metal everything is tight and fits wonderfully well. I decided to get this grip after being very frustrated by the official X Pro 1 grip. That grip covered up the card and battery compartment , where this one allows complete accsess to change your battery or card without taking the grip of.

Where this grip really impresses is the hand grip . It has indentations for 3 fingers and just makes the camera feel more secure and comfortable in my hands.
The Grip really doesn’t feel any more heavier than it did with the official fuji grip.

All in all a really worthwhile purchase they can be found by doing a search on Ebay.
