Recently I was asked to do an interior design shoot for a show home that is going to be featured in a European home style magazine. I brought along a full frame DSLR mounted on a tripod with the intention of shooting tethered composites using multi-flash. However as the shoot developed, and due to both time and constraints on positioning of the camera I reached into my bag and pulled out my trusty Fuji-film X-T1 and mounted the the very handy 10mm-24mm F4 lens. This lens gives a ultra wide angle view and benefits in being a rectilinear design, so the straight lines stay as straight lines.
The only real problems with using this camera and lens combination, is that clients can look at it and think you brought a toy…it is so much smaller than a DSLR. The other issue I found is that tethered shooting isn’t a strength of the Fuji cameras. They are working with Adobe for better support in Lightroom however a Fuji-film engineer from Japan told me that it is unlikely Capture One will support any Fuji camera in the foreseeable future. This is a shame as Lightroom is a slug when shooting tethered.
The photos below were all shot at F8 which gave good depth of field, great sharpness and lack of chromatic aberrations that can start coming in at F11 or higher.
