From what I’ve seen, the new Fuji Classic Negative film simulation is generous on the blue and green level, while remaining somewhat warm and keeping a low contrast.
Nothing says “I love my camera” more than a handmade wooden grip, and this grip by Stefano Borghi says it perfectly. Stefano build this wooden grip to replace his Fuji Xpro-1 plastic grip. Of course, similar procedure can be implemented to create a wooden grip for the newer Xpro 2 as well, and probably the Xpro3 when it comes. (we are not starting a rumor now!).
It is kinda straight forward, so I am just gonna lay out the photos to show you how it’s done step by step.
The delivery date for the Fuji X-Pro2 is set to March 3rd. If this was not a leap year, that would have been in three days. Sadly, we will have to wait for another day before we see it shipped.
If you are considering getting one of those cameras, here is a RAW file right out of a production model that you can edit to experience the Fuji power. (We got a RAW file courtesy of X-shooter Dave Kai Piper and UK model Sam Erised, you can see some edits + the rest of the shoot here).
Here are 42 photographs taken from a recent bridal collection shoot. I’ve shared them to show how I process my monochrome images using the new Acros film simulation from Fujifilm. Please feel free to read or just browse the pictures for ideas and inspiration.
