X10 vs. X20

Today, 05:28 PM

Posted by JorgenX in X10, X20 and X30 Discussion

I'm considering buying my 13 year old son a simple camera for his birthday.  He seems to like to use my X-E1 with the 18-55mm, and I tend to put it on program mode for him.  I've been thinking about getting a nice point-and-shoot camera, such as a X10 or X20 for him.  He's just starting to learn about photography, so he would be shooting jpg rather than RAW files.

 

I understand from one source that the X20 has slightly better IQ than the X10.  However, another source indicated that the image quality of jpgs from the X10 is better than the X20 (while the X20 has the better RAW files).  I haven't used either camera much, so I am asking for some advice from those who are familiar with these cameras.

 

Which has the better image quality in jpg, X10 or X20?

 

Are there distinct advantages to the metering in program mode (or EXR mode in the case of X10) on either camera?

 

Thanks in advance.

XT1 Does Pot Roast

Today, 03:22 PM

Posted by Greg F in Fuji X Photos

Made a pot roast for dinner and decided to see how well the X-T1 handles what I would normally shoot with my Canon rig. It's definitely much lighter on my boom, and the remote app works perfectly well, providing a live view of the scene. Still, I would love to be able to tether the camera to my laptop via Lightroom.

 

Anyway, this is all natural diffused light with a couple of reflectors to direct it to where I wanted it.

 

Thanks for having a peek!

XT-1 - back button focus

Today, 02:25 PM

Posted by sharkman53 in X-T1 Discussion

I am trying to determine if you can set a custom function for back button focusing, as well as ISO bracketing.  I am close to purchasing the XT-1 and those functions are important to my shooting style.  Also, with EV bracketing can you go beyond +1/-1 in stops?

Thanks for the help.

As part of our Open Doors weekend I took a tour of Govanhill Baths. It's 100 years old and was facing demolition by the local authority but has now become a trust. It was built in the days when Glasgow houses had no indoor toilets, baths or clothes washing facilities and so was the centre of the community. The trust are awaiting funding to bring the building back to life.

Trip to Cologne and Photokina

Today, 12:56 PM

Posted by jetstacker in Fuji X Photos

Thought I'd post some pictures I toke in Cologne last week while visiting Photokina 2014. My main goal was to play with some of the fujifilm cameras (and og course a lot of the other brands too :) ), and then buy a new camera after the trip. I had a Fujifilm X-M1 which I thought was great and gave great pictures, but i missed the viewfinder. I was also thinking that weather sealing would be good. A few days before the trip I found a X-E2 used at a good price, and I just couldn't resist ( even though I was dreaming of the X-T1). Got the camera and used with my 27 mm lens in Germany and loved it. I thought is was great to shoot with and my trip kind of got a different focus. I didn't really try out to many of the cameras at Photokina. There were so many people, and I was wasn't as eager since I had a great camera. Even the X-T1 didn't win me over, as I think X-E2 is much better for my kind of shooting. I'm very amateur, but learning. Attached File  DSCF0285 (Copy).jpg   304.87KB   2 downloads I did of course play with a few of the cameras at the show :) So I had a great trip where I got to test out and learn the X-E2, and even got really comfortable with shooting all manual ( usually a aperture mode guy with auto iso). So maybe finally my GAS will not be as prominent as it has been.

 

Sorry for the long post, just wanted to share my enthusiasm for the Fujifilm X-E2, and hopefully I have shifted my interest more to learning to take better pictures and not just drool over gear :)

( I did buy a 18-55 lens when I came back, because of a good deal on the used market again. But that is much to do with noticing a few limitations with just one prime lens. Hopefully the 18-55 will teach me more.)

Hello from Toronto, Canada

Today, 08:38 AM

Posted by filmamigo in Members - Introductions

Greetings folks,

 

After having followed Fuji closely for a number a years, I finally took the plunge with an X-E1.

 

The X-E1 seems to be exactly the camera I imagined was possible at the beginning of the digital photography revolution. I love the highly evolved form which looks retro - only because other manufacturers abandoned shutter speed dials and aperture rings to save a few pennies.

 

I look forward to shooting my X-E1 with an existing stable of lenses - mostly Pentax screwmount and K-mount.

New X-T1: Something loose in EVF (?)

Today, 08:03 AM

Posted by feyzi in X-T1 Discussion

Hello,

 

I've just received my new X-T1 and when I shake it backwards and forwards, there appears to be something loose inside the EVF. 

 

Does this sound normal?

Sensor staying on after camera turned off?

Today, 07:31 AM

Posted by submarinedog in X-T1 Discussion

Hi guys,

 

One thing I've noticed is that after turning off my X-T1, the sensor light near the eye piece appears to stay on (red). However, if I pull out the battery from the camera the light turns off. It may be hard to see during daylight, so lowlight would be best.

 

Is this behaviour normal/happening for others?

 

Currently on firmware 1.1.

 

Cheers,

Nigel

 

EDIT: It seems to happen when 'High performance mode' is turned on in the settings, when I set it to off the light will turn off when the camera is switched off.

 

Do you think this will affect battery life in some way as it is giving power to the sensor? I would have thought if you turn the device off, then all components in the device should turn off as well as you wouldn't be able to use the camera anyway while it's turned off..?

 

Apologies if this is a stupid question! Still getting to grips with the Fuji.
