  • […] Photographing Cyclocross with the Fujifilm XE-1 and X20 | Dan Bailey’s Adventure Photography B…. […]

  • Thanks Dan for the test and thanks for using a Cyclocross race as the subject! I am so ready to ditch the DSLR for Bike racing and Night Sky work and hoping to one or more options next year. Now that the Alaska ‘cross season is over you need to road trip down to Bend for the Cross Crusade race series. Race 1 had 1,500 people… A photographers dream…

    Tim, I’ve been thinking about heading south for some more racing. May have to think about stopping by Bend, sounds like a good scene!

    Dan, thanks. As an owner of the X20 I’m always interested in the photo experience of others with this camera. I haven’t taken to it quite as quickly as you! In fact I was pretty disappointed with IQ after about 2 weeks use. But, I really love is ergonomics, feel and options. Consequently, I’m beginning to focus less on its weaknesses and more on what I can do with this wee camera. And sometimes I get a gem. Subjectively comparing the IQ of the X20 to other P&S cameras I have owned (Nikon 5000 series, Panasonic LX5 & TZ10, Ricoh GX100), the reality is that the IQ is quite good. I invariably shoot RAW (of course, some modes do not allow that) which offers great flexibility and I am learning to be more ruthless when it comes to deleting sub par images! Andrew

  • […] Overall, I had lots of fun shooting this race. Especially whenever the guy in the viking costume rode by. Both X cameras held their own, they were really fun to use, and I’m super happy with the feel and mood of my photographs; I think they tell a great story of what happened over at Goose Lake last Saturday afternoon, and that fact shouldn’t be camera dependent.  […]

  • […] I shot a lot of photos in October, many of them during the Anchorage cyclocross races. With so many shots, it’s hard to pick a favorite, but this one definitely stands out. I made it with the Fujifilm XE-1 and the fixed XF 14mm f/2.8 lens, with the camera set in square black and white mode. Sometimes setting  limitations like this can actually jump start your photographic creativity. Lots more to see, so check out more photos from this series here. […]

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
