Fujifilm XT1 + 58mm Voigtlander + Magmod flash modifier – nice lighting option to soften flash

Remember the Fujifilm XT1 is only 16 megapixels but with the right lens and lighting you’d never know the difference between this and many other bodies with more megapixels and newer technology. Paired with the Voigtlander 58mm f1.4 manual focus lens attached via a K&F Concept adaptor, and with the aid of focus peaking, I decided to try out my new Magmod flash modifier mounted on an old Nikon SB800. Needless to say this is not a terribly practical setup as the SB800 is really too big and heavy for the XT1, however I wanted to see what the flash modifier could do paired with a great lens. Results were very impressive. Click pictures for larger view. Enjoy.

I’ll let these pictures speak for themselves. All have had minor tweaks in Lightroom.
