AF has improved tremendously over the last few years with Fujifilm cameras. Even the Fujifilm X-T3 with last year's firmware saw significant improvements. However, there is one little camera that still struggles, the X100V. This guide shows you a few cool tricks on how to get better autofocus out of the X100V.
Shutter speed is often one of those settings on a camera that photographers overlook. Most photographers these days just put their camera in aperture priority mode and let the camera decide shutter speed for them. While doing this is fine for most people and most situations, you might be ignoring some artistic potential, some mood, or some vibe by not taking just a little control of that shutter speed. In this article, we will look at the roll shutter speed plays on an image's mood and how just a few basic adjustments can have a big impact.
Lightroom has just released a nice update that brings in a few new features and performance improvements. Typically when Lightroom does their updates they are usually small little baby steps to a better product, which is great as it allows us to adjust and get used to the new features gradually, compared to if they were to overhaul everything completely in one go. But occasionally, Adobe will implement a small change that completely changes the way the software can be used, and sometimes it's game-changing.
Diffraction is when a wave spreads out as it passing through a small slit or any intricate surface. With Photography, this would apply to how the light interacts with the aperture and how it is detected by the photosites on a sensor. When light is focused through the aperture, it interacts with the edge of the aperture blades causing it to spread out and bend slightly, this causes a reduction with the maximum optical resolution. The smaller the aperture the greater the effect.
One of the great features of the Fujifilm cameras is the ability to control and manipulate the film simulators to give you absolutely incredible classic looks that are ready to go straight out of the camera. This isn't something I've really gotten into too much over the years since I've always liked editing by hand and experimenting with different looks on the RAW files in post. But as I get busier and busier with work and kids and life, simplicity is the new trend in my life.
When I first started using Aurora back in 2017 it really felt like the beginning of something awesome. Like the baby alien that just burst out of Kanes chest in the first Alien movie, it took off running doing all these mysterious things behind the scenes. The little creature continued to grow while occasionally popping out for an update here and there. It was exciting and still powerful, but we only got to see hints of what this beast would become. Finally, with the launch of Aurora HDR 2019, it's true form has been revealed as the perfect landscape devouring monster.
