Somatische Intelligenz: “Die beste Ernährung ist die, auf die man Lust hat” | Thomas Frankenbach

See on Scoop.it - Intuition

Unser Körper weiß am besten, was gut für ihn ist, sagt Thomas Frankenbach. Statt stur Diättipps zu befolgen, rät der Gesundheitsexperte dazu, die eigene Körperwahrnehmung zu stärken.


"Wir leben in einer Welt, in der Logik mehr wert ist als unsere Intuition. Wir bedienen jeden Tag Maschinen, sitzen vor dem Computer, telefonieren mit Smartphones - da ist logisches Verständnis wichtiger als unser Bauchgefühl. Leider führt die Reizüberflutung der westlichen Industriegesellschaft teilweise so weit, dass wir die Signale unseres Körpers gar nicht mehr wahrnehmen."……..

Two weeks on the road with the FUJIFILM X100T | Björn Moerman


Four years ago, Fujifilm announced the X100 at Photokina, Germany. Little did they know, that this announcement would change the way photographers looked at Fujifilm for the foreseeable future. The X100 with its high quality fixed 23mm (35mm equivalent) prime lens, was quickly becoming the “must have” for a lot of pro and serious amateur photographers. But it wasn’t all wine and roses from the start! The Rangefinder-like camera delivered great image quality, but its unpredictable autofocus quickly became well documented in the photography world. A bit more than a year later, Fujifilm launched the X100S; a major upgrade to the existing X100 in which they gave it a complete new sensor (16.3 X-Trans CMOS II) and a vastly improved autofocus functionality. The X100S quickly became the dream camera for a lot of Street photographers. But could the X100S even be improved?……

How to Reduce Noise with Photo Ninja | Digital Photography School


Reducing noise in a digital photo is a hot topic, particularly for photographers who frequently shoot at high ISOs. Even if you’re not a typical low light shooter, the temptation may arise with some of the newer digital cameras that offer incredibly high ISO speeds which still produce pretty pleasing images, even with noise. There are many factors that can produce noise in your images, and there are many ways to reduce or sometimes even avoid noise all together. This article in particular will highlight one post-processing trick to reduce noise using a third party plugin called Photo Ninja. Made by the folks over at PictureCode, Photo Ninja is a RAW converter for both Windows and Mac OS X computers. It uses a built-in browser to open most RAW file formats, as well as JPEG and TIFF images. It also integrates well with many photo browsing and editing applications including Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. The plugin has been around since 2003 when it was launched under the name Noise Ninja. Today, the current product has expanded and is now known as Photo Ninja,  and it offers a host of editing adjustments with its signature Noise Ninja 3.0 included……..

Street Photo of the week by Robert Doisneau | Streethunters


Robert Doisneau is one of the most talented and amazing photographers that has ever lived. Period. He was an active Street Photographer for more than 60 years, more than most others and his work depicts the evolution of the modern world from the early 1930s all the way up until the end of the 20th century, in the mid 1990s. His photographs of France are iconic, they are epic. You have certainly seen one or more of them in your lifetime even if you don’t know that he was the photographer that made the shot. He was creative, innovative, funny, brave and daring. He would take the photo of a funny situation just as passionately as he would photograph the fighters of the French resistance in the barricades during WWII. He would capture the magic, playful moments of children, just as well as the sensational look of a beautiful woman. He would be there to snap the moment, to forever record scenes that are now part of European Modern History……

Fujifilm XT-1 | Bruce Percy


One of the perks of being a workshop leader, is that through meeting new participants each year, I get to see an array of assorted camera equipment, from the budget to the seriously expensive. And once in a while, somebody turns up with a camera that I think has a very beautiful look to its images. During my Scottish workshops, I do a daily critique of participants images, so I get to see first hand the differences in colours and tones between different models. For a while, the digital camera that I thought had the most beautiful tones and colours was the Nikon D3X. I won’t pretend to know much about the tech side of any digital camera. I rarely go to websites to look at equipment specs for digital systems as I’m pretty much focussed on my art with the medium I’ve been using for the past twenty odd years (I’m a film-shooter). But it is interesting to see how digital cameras are improving and advancing each year while running my workshops……..

REVIEW: The New XF50-140mm f2.8 - First Impressions | Jeff Carter


Last weekend at the Fuji International Speedway, where I was working on the Japanese round of the FIA World Endurance Championship, I had the opportunity to see the new Fujinon  XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR lens ahead of its release in the UK this November.  My thanks to the guys from Fujifilm Japan, who brought one along to the race. Because it was race day I was unable to go out and shoot with the lens, hopefully I will be able to remedy this later this year, but here are my first impressions of this new fast telephoto lens. During my 18 years shooting with Nikon, my favourite lens was the Nikkor 80-200mm f2.8 AF-D that I bought new in 1996. I kept this lens for the entire time I used Nikon both as an enthusiast and professional photographer and I sold it, reluctantly, in May of this year. It is probably the one lens that I miss the most,  so when Fujifilm announced a constant f2.8 mid range zoom (76mm-213mm equivalent) I was eager to get my hands on a copy to see what it is like.…..

Setting Up an Optical Testing Station | LensRentals


There are a lot of right ways to do optical testing. The gold standard is to put the lens on a $150,000 optical bench or run it through a well-equipped Imatest lab. But unless you have an optical bench or Imatest lab handy, that’s not practical. We have to optically test around 400 lenses a day, which is more than our Imatest lab can possibly handle. So over the years we’ve learned a lot about practical ways to test lenses. We’ve constantly double-checked our methods using Imatest and an optical bench, refining our optical testing. We’ve developed a simple set up that is about 98% accurate in identifying lenses that are decentered or optically misaligned. A lot of people could do this at home themselves. Certainly any camera club could make an identical setup. Judging from the emails I get, a lot of people want to be able to test their lenses optically and few know how to do it, so this should be useful for them….

Fuji XF 14mm lens review | Mark Richards


There is something that new users need to know about the Fujinon XF 14mm f/2.8 lens – as the X series are not full-frame cameras then the lens is really equivalent to a 21mm lens when it comes to the field of view and should be considered with this in mind.  This is not like the Voigtländer 15mm lens in terms of its field of view so it is important you manage your expectations.  It remains however an ultra-wide angle lens by any standards and gives a pretty extreme angle of view at 89º.  The lens I am using as a benchmark for this review is the Zeiss Biogon T* 2.8/21 for the Contax G2 as that was my stock 21mm lens for years and is outstanding quality. One of the first photographs I took with the Fuji 14mm lens is the one of Tower Bridge (above) which was taken with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 camera.  Click on the images to enlarge (but please remember the sample images are copyright and shouldn’t be used without my permission) ……

Fuji XF 55-200mm, field review | Steeve Marcoux


Telephoto zoom lenses are very popular because of their versatility and space saving compared to having several prime lenses to cover the same range. I’ve owned some of them in different mounts, so when i switched to Fuji i wanted to cover the maximum range with the minimum lenses. So i bought the 18-55mm and not long after i bought the XF 55-200mm because of it’s attributes (aperture ring, built quality and OIS) and IQ. Sure the XC 50-230mm is smaller and lighter but i wanted the better IQ and built of the XF 55-200mm. I will be talking on how this lens performs in the field as a Nature photography telephoto lens, covering landscape, close-ups and some wildlife. Telephoto zoom lenses in that range are very useful in my photography, a big part of what i photograph is covered by the XF 55-200mm…….
