19 Jun 88th Pitti Uomo, Summer. Pitticolor! Fuji X-T1 with 35mm
Posted on Jun 19, 2015
Pitti Uomo in Florence is always a special occasion to photograph all the designers and creative people from the fashion world that comes to Florence; so it’s always a special occasion to bringing home some interesting shots.
During the fair days, I’ve used the Fuji X-T1 with the 35mm f/1.4 which is equivalent to a classic 50mm in the full frame format.
Again, from my point of view, the Fuji’s camera prove to be extremely interesting with the color rendering: despite the saturation boost in post processing, skin color remains very natural.
I had a very good feeling using the Fuji X-T1 camera and the manual settings; the grip of the hand was also helped by the additional battery grip witch add the vertical shutter release button. I can only confirm all the good opinions and reviews expressed about the quality of the electronic viewfinder!
I think we are facing the first real electronic viewfinder that allows a quality performance nearly equal to the optical one or even better: especially in low light situations, the electronic viewfinder is way better to help you seeing and composing the scene. From the Fuji X-T1 I also appreciated the possibility (since firmware 3.0) to set the EVF without visualizing the color profile; in this way, the scene is absolutely neutral and you have even more the feeling of looking through a real optical viewfinder.
Note about the postproduction: all the shots were developed from Raw file using Lightroom, working with color profiles, settings the highlights, shadows, and contrast of the photo.
