Project 365-2: August 2019

August was the final month of my 365 project. For this period, I chose the XF 56 (again). These are my favorites: Aperture: ƒ/1.2 Camera: X-T3 Taken: 1 August, 2019 Focal length: 56mm ISO: 3200 Shutter speed: 1/125s

Project 365-2: July 2019

Regarding the lenses, July 2019 was a bit more mixed-up: I used the XF 23 f/2 for the remainder of my vacation (until July 5th). For the rest of the month, I used the XF 35 f/1.4, with two exception were I used the XF 90. These are my favorites for July:       […]

Project 365-2: June 2019

June 2019 was another month with the XF 23 f/2. All but two pictures were taken using that lens. June encompasses the first part of my vacation to Lisbon. The lens also proved universally useful for that occasion. My favorites for June are:     Aperture: ƒ/5.6 Camera: X-T3 Taken: 17 June, 2019 Focal length: […]

Project 365-2: May 2019

In May 2019 I went back to the XF 23 f/2. I have definitely come to like its fast and quiet internal focusing mechanism. My favorites for this month are: Aperture: ƒ/11 Camera: X-T3 Taken: 1 May, 2019 Focal length: 23mm ISO: 200 Shutter speed: 1/300s

  • Aperture: ƒ/11

  • ISO: 200
  • Shutter speed: 1/300s

Project 365-2: April 2019

For the first few days of April 2019 I used again the XF 23 f/2. Then I got my new toy — the XF 90 f/2. I missed a longer focal length and I find the XC 50-230 much too slow (in terms of focusing speed as well as in terms of aperture) for an everyday use. Torn between […]

  • Aperture: ƒ/11
  • Camera: X-T3
  • Taken: 1 April, 2019
  • Focal length: 23mm
  • ISO: 160
  • Shutter speed: 1/350s

Project 365-2: March 2019

March was again a month of the standard focal length of 35 mm, i.E. the XF 35 f/1.4. My favorite shots are these: Aperture: ƒ/16 Camera: X-T3 Taken: 23 March, 2019 Focal length: 35mm ISO: 160 Shutter speed: 1/52s

  • Aperture: ƒ/16
  • Camera: X-T3

  • Focal length: 35mm
  • ISO: 160
  • Shutter speed: 1/52s

Project 365-2: February 2019

February was probably the most mixed-up month of the project. Starting with one of my most underused lenses, the XF 27, I soon decided to sell it. The external focus mechanism with its hefty movement during focusing and the lack of an aperture ring were the main reasons for that. After making the decision, I […]

  • Aperture: ƒ/2.8
  • Camera: X-T1
  • Taken: 7 February, 2019
  • Focal length: 27mm
  • ISO: 2500

Project 365-2: January 2019

January was the month of the XF 14. This was quite a change compared to the XF 56 I used in December. The XF 14 is nice and small, but I in general I found the wide angle harder to work with. Obviously, it is also harder to create a bokeh effect — but not […]

  • Aperture: ƒ/2.8
  • Camera: X-T1
  • Taken: 19 January, 2019
  • Focal length: 14mm
  • ISO: 800
  • Shutter speed: 1/250s

Project 365-2: December 2018

After two months with the XF 23 f/2, December 2018 was a month with a considerably narrower field of view: That of the XF 56 f/1.2. Much larger in diameter and heavier than either the XF 35 or the XF 23 f/2, this lens is still fairly good to handle. Its optical characteristics are stunning. […]

  • Aperture: ƒ/1.2
  • Camera: X-T1
  • Taken: 29 December, 2018
