Now that the dust have settled after the global
launch of X-H1. As mention in my previous post
about Eterna; I wasn’t certain about this new film
simulation. I did some outdoor nature scene and
I felt that it did work beautifully on some shots.
This is just my personal take.
I did get a couple of request on how would it will
look when using Eterna for a portraits shot. My
model is Cheryl Tay. A triathlete and also the
founder of http://rockthenakedtruth.com
Here is a shot taken with X-H1 mated with XF23mm
F1.4. I must say this is the most challenging shoot I
ever did with the X-H1. There was so many splashes
of sea water flying everywhere. At the same time
I am loving the effect of the coming storm. This shot
is lite with a single Broncolor Siros 800L.
I was more concern of the non WR XF23mm F1.4.
In fact the there was once a wave actually kiss the
whole bottom of the X-H1 and XF23mm. Sadly I
am all soak and there was nothing to dry the X-H1
or XF23mm. To make matter worse there was a
moment of rain.
Here is a missed shot just before the wave hit the
gears! Thankfully only the waves only the kisses the
bottom of X-H1 and XF23mm
As you could see from the picture; there was even
evidents of water droplet on the front lens element.
Below is a picture of X-H1(pre-production set) and
GFX having a cleaning and “drying” session after the
shoot. Both camera are still working. Finger cross!
So far I am very please with the effect that Eterna
is offerring. I believe I will be shooting more with
this film simulation. What do you think?
