Portrait in Tuscany with Fuji X100t

Dalia, Portraits with Fuji X100t and TCL-X100 teleconverter

Posted on Apr 11, 2015

Another series of photos taken with the Fuji X100t and the focal converter TCL – X100. As in the previous article, in this case I wanted to try this additional lens to see if it can be a usable solution to any work’s assignment.

I can confirm that the additional lens performs very well indeed!

Contrast and colors are very pleasing as with the original 35mm lens of the X100T. Looking at the details however you can notice that the lens remains always a little bit soft (notice that in the pictures you see below I haven’t applied almost no unsharp mask) and the bokeh in some situations – especially in backlight – remains a bit “nervous” and not so clear.

In any case, this is once more a confirmation of the good results you can obtain combining the Fuji X100T and the TCL – X100 teleconverter!

   I suggest you to give a look at the other blog post where I’ve used the Fujifilm TCL-X100 teleconvert on the X100 series camera:

    Great photos, I was looking for some sample photos using the TCL, looks like quite a nice combination with enough bokeh.

      Thanks Julian! The teleconverter is a great addition to the small and comfortable package of the X100 series. I’m looking forward to see how it performs with focus on the new Fujifilm X100F! 😀

    How do you create this fashion mood ? By settings in the camera itself ? Or editing

      It’s a combination. But mainly the colors and mood is set by editing the photos. I’m working using Lightroom that I’ve found very versatile for my work.

    These are fantastic shots! I’ve been thinking about further reducing my working set from X-T1+56 f1.2 to X100T+TCL-X100. It think your samples here have definitely helped me getting a feel for the X100T setup. Thank you!

    Is the lack of contrast caused by the front element being in the sun, or by your post processing?

      Ciao Antony, yes I’ve set the black level down to create this fashion mood. I would say that colours and contrast are the same as shooting with the base 23mm lens of the x100t

    Beautiful pictures! But did you notice any decrease in focus speed when the TLC is attached?

      Thanks for your feedback! Honestly not, I haven’t find so much speed changes with the Teleconverter! 😀
