Spencer Bentley – CITY LIFELINE

“I had the great X-E1 and the beautiful 35mm F1.4 R lens first but after a few months I wanted something with even more portability and the ability to expand my interest in high-speed photography. So I bought the X100S. My gamble has been paying dividends ever since.

“One of my favourite places to photograph is the Washington DC underground metro rail. It’s the lifeline of the city. This photo was when I was experimenting with the camera’s low-light capabilities. I increased the ISO sensitivity to 3200, to get an evenly exposed photo while maintaining a shutter speed fast enough to stop the motion of the train and reduce camera shake.”

Nick Palliser – The Munchies

“I am a professional photographer and teacher, and I use the Fuji X system for more than 90% of my work.

“This image is from my latest series, The Munchies, taken with the X-Pro1 and 35mm F1.4 R. I doubt I would have captured them so well with any other system.

“The series explores the diversity of late night independent takeaway establishments and their patrons. I chose a very structured way to compose them, taking cues from Edward Hopper and Arne Svenson. I am planning to expand on the series and possibly produce a book.”

Stephen Ip – NEWPORT BEACH Pier

“I am a landscape and travel photographer based in Southern California, USA. I have been shooting exclusively with the X-series cameras since March 2012. I currently use the X-Pro1 with the 14mm and 35mm lenses along with the X100S.

“This long exposure image is from a personal project I am working on to photograph the piers along the California coast.”

Kjetil Iversen – My home town: Bodo

“I love my Fujifilm X100. This shot is from my home town, Bodo, in northern Norway. I made it with my fantastic X100 and the wide-conversion lens. I mainly use the X100 for family shots, but it really is a versatile tool.

“This photo was shot in Raw and developed on my computer. The X100 Raw files are fantastic!”

Chris Saddler – Night-time Vegas

“I’m so glad I took the plunge and bought an X-series camera. The images are stellar and the high ISO capability amazes me. This aerial shot was taken at ISO 2000. I took it in Raw and made minor adjustments in Adobe Camera Raw.”

Jorge Miño – The look of love

“I was walking in Madrid looking for black & white urban images when I saw this impressive pub. I realised that this girl was looking at her boyfriend with big open eyes so I composed the image and took three shots. The pub is really impressive, but I value much more her way of looking at her boyfriend – to my eyes it says she’s completely in love.”

Peter Fauland – EPFL Rolex Learning Center, Lausanne

“I run a studio and photography school in Berlin, Germany. Recently I documented the construction of the EPFL Rolex Learning Center in Lausanne, Switzerland. Returning to Lausanne, I was thrilled to visit the Center again, this time with my X-series cameras.

“For around a year I’ve been using these mirrorless cameras and the FUJINON lenses because of their outstanding image quality, especially in low-light situations, the simplicity of operation and the much smaller size and weight compared with my old camera kit.”

Matt Hart – Whitby Pier

Technical details Camera: X-Pro1 Lens: XF 18mm F2 R Exposure: 1/40sec at F11, ISO 200
Camera: X-Pro1- Lens: XF 18mm F2 R
Exposure: 1/40sec at F11, ISO 200

“Whitby in north east England is a timeless place. So far, it has been left untouched by developers so it is largely unspoilt and has real charm. I think it’s a place you can walk around all day and all night with a camera in a very relaxing environment.”

“The image was taken one evening using my X-Pro1 hand held – I just love its ease of use and the stunning sensor. I have just sold all my Nikon equipment because of this camera – people think I am mad going from a D3s to the X-Pro1, but I fell in love with the X100 and once I had used the X-Pro1 for a few days I was completely hooked.”

Rex Adams – Birling Gap

Camera: X-Pro1 – Lens: XF18mm F2 R and 10 stop ND filter
Exposure: 8.5secs at F16, ISO 200

“I love black & white photography as I feel the results are less cluttered than in colour. A black & white photograph draws your attention to the subject without the distraction of colours which may or may not be an intentional part of the image.”

“I took this image with the X-Pro1, which I chose as I wanted a camera to carry around without having to lug a heavy DSLR. The X-Pro1 is the most versatile camera I have used, and the images produced are as good if not better than my Canon DSLR.”

“Personally, I am excited with the direction Fujifilm is going at the moment and am particularly interested in the Fujifilm X-E2 which may end up in my bag before too long! I like the way Fujifilm listens to users’ suggestions, and many of these have been incorporated into firmware updates. This demonstrates that it’s a forward-thinking company that puts its customers first.”

Camera: X-Pro1 – Lens: XF18-55mm
Exposure: 4 seconds at F22, ISO 100

“I was after a sunrise, but it wasn’t going to happen so I decided to shoot an alternative image using a long exposure. I don’t usually shoot landscapes in black & white, but in this situation it wouldn’t have worked in colour.”

“I used my X-Pro1, but I also shoot with an X10 and X20 as they are ideal pocket cameras for any occasion. I recently changed all my gear from the Nikon DSLRs with a selection of lenses to the Fujifilm X-series and various lenses, and for me it was the right move. I just love the full manual control the X-Pro1 gives me.”

Paulo Bizarro – Carcavelos

Technical details Camera: X-E1 Lens: XF14mm Exposure: 27secs at F11, ISO 200
Camera: X-E1 – Lens: XF14mm
Exposure: 27secs at F11, ISO 200

“This was shot near my house on the beach at Carcavelos just outside Lisbon. It’s an area I know well, and I have recently started shooting a personal project there. I’m making a series of long exposures around sunset (some up to six minutes) of this pier and the sea. The idea is to get the locals to view the area differently. For this photo, I also applied a Velvia preset in Lightroom; I have used Velvia slide film for almost 20 years!

“I am a recent convert to the Fujifilm X-series after using Canon EOS for more than 20 years. I like to photograph travel, landscapes and people. For these subjects the Fuji works very well and the prime lenses are really good. I now have an X-E1 and X-Pro1 with three lenses: 14mm, 35mm and a Zeiss 50mm F2.”

Camera: X-E1 – Lens: XF18-55mm
Exposure: 26secs at F11, ISO 200

“Here’s my contribution to the excellent Fujifilm X Magazine. It was taken at sunset a couple of weeks ago in Malaga and I love the colours in the sky and on the lookout post.”

“I used my Fujifilm X-E1 and standard zoom lens. They’re a great combination and I’m really impressed with the quality of the lens and sensor – they deliver images with strong colours and great detail. The camera was tripod mounted to avoid camera shake.”
