With a machine like this a field of barley was whacked down in only a few hours. In my grandfathers day the work was done by hand with an army of people that once populated the land.
The barley goes to makes Scotch Whiskey, and the maltsters pay a premium price to farmers for the top quality product, if it doesn't make the grade, it is fed to the cattle.
Due to our northern position we are amongst the last in Europe to bring in the harvests.

X-E2 - XF10-24/4
iv noticed that the on/off button on my
New xt2 is different than the one in my xt1.
It is smoother , easier to push(not so good), and doesnt do a "click sound" when pressed.
Anyone noticed this also?

The Canon lens has been stuck for months on end. Not one picture (that I can remember) and I think only two people have had it since February and it has not moved in months.
The Jupiter has moved nicely for a while ( a few bumps) but is now stuck because the next two people in line have not responded to the guy who has it and is trying to move it along the list.
So .... should we send the lenses home and end the game?
Is there anyone on the list who is actually ready to receive the Jupiter (from @Michael Teresko ) and shoot with it?
Is there anyone on the list who is actually ready to receive the Canon (from @imagesfromobjects ) and shoot with it?
Or is the game over?
Recently the tripod collar lock screw from my 50-140 became unattached and is now lost. I sent an email to Fujifilm support. Wondering if anyone has had a similar experience and any luck replacing theirs?
I know, read the manual, but I cannot find it.
I know, search the forums, but I cannot find it.
I have to bug you. I'd like to change what is displayed on my X70's Q-Menu. I understand how to use the C1, C2 etc and change them. I would like to change what choices are available to me.
For example. on the first column, second row, I would like to have "HTone" displayed rather than "NR". How is that done?
Thanks so much for your help!
Does anyone have any experience using the Nikon 35mm f/1.8 or Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art on the X-T2, X-T1, or X-Pro2? I am trying to decide if I am going to purchase one of the Fuji 35mm lenses while they are on sale, or if I should hold off and adapt my Nikon mount 35mm lenses.
I am interested in your thoughts on IQ, DOF, bokeh comparisons etc. between the two Fuji lenses and the adapted Nikon mount lenses. Also, if you have used these lenses on your Fuji, what adapter you have used.
We took my little boy to the Zoo for his 2nd birthday. I managed to squeeze in a few snapshot in between chasing after my son. First attempt at this kind of thing, and first outing with XC50-230.
Mainly SOOC jpg, but some mild editing to some of the images in snapseed.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 14 cannot read my X-T2 RAF files. The error msg says "wrong kind of file". I downloaded Camera Raw Plug-in 9.7.1 (9/17/16 version) *.8bi file, copied into theh plug-in folder to replace the old file but it still doesn't work. I have done the same procedure when I had X-T1 and Elements13 and was successful. Is there any thing I can do?

Floating Dreams by Ik-Joong Kang is an installation in the middle of the River Thames near the Millennium Bridge. Made from 500 drawings and illuminated from inside, the lantern is a memorial to the millions displaced during the Korean War (1950-53), and a symbol of hope for the reunification of North and South Korea.

Using a adapter with my Yashica 50mm lens. Cannot get the shutter to fire. Tried a bunch of menu settings, in manual focus, S mode. The aperture is showing as f/0 which I would expect given the adapter has no electronics anyway.
What am I missing?
This orchestra illustrates a composition of different elements, a harmony between New vs Old, Digital vs Analog of my own collection in a sonata form. In another word, music to my ears.
Kid aside, shooting film (black & white) is still my favorite, top of the list. Although lately the Digital Arsenal team seems to be taken over the Analog team by force. Make no mistake, taken over but never for be forgotten the legendary of 35mm film.

P.S. the "black" X-pro2 is by nature a conductor of course.
I took my first shots with a new X-T2 today on the farm and set the camera for RAW + JPG on the assumption that none of my software had X-T2 RAW converters yet (and none of it does). I recorded the RAW files to one card and JPG to another, and some of the shots were with film simulations including black and white. (Thus it would be obvious on viewing when a film simulation was applied.) On import to the computer I stored the RAW files in one folder and the JPG files in another folder.
I expected to see nothing but "we can't do this" when I asked ON1 Photo 10 to open a RAW file, but what I got was the film simulation version, yet the file name still indicated RAW. (I also got the film simulation on the JPG files, of course.)
Logically then, since ON1 Photo 10 does not have a RAW converter for the X-T2 ( Digital camera RAW formats supported by OS X El Capitan ), it should follow that either one should not be able to see a RAW file, or somehow the film simulation is baked in with the RAW file. I discount the latter because the file size for RAW "simulated" images was identical to straight "non-simulated" images.
This leaves another possibility; that the Mac/ON 1 Photo 10 called on the RAW converter for the X-Pro2, as I had updated my Mac RAW converter software earlier in the week, and this was supposed to support RAW on the X-Pro2.
My inclination is to think that ON1 Photo 10 used the X-Pro2 RAW converter in the Mac to open the X-T2 RAW file. But why were the film simulations applied?
A curiosity, and there are many people on the forum who are far more knowledgeable than am I.
Has anyone used a wired cable release with the XT2? If so, what brand? I have a "Vello ShutterBoss" that I thought was compatible, but I can't use it on Manual and hold in the button for as long as I want. It will do a 30 second shot and bracket shots (if I use the Timer Start/Stop button) instead of the button that one usually uses to take the shot. I used the Vello on my Canon Cameras in the past. I am getting ready for a big trip and would love to get this figured out soon. I don't know if it is a setting, or just not compatible. Thanks for any input.
On my X-T1 I frequently change one of the function buttons according to my needs. I do that by keeping it pushed for a few seconds, which leads me into the function selection menu. Very handy!
But this doesn't seem to be working on the X-T2. Am I doing something wrong?

I currently have a Phottix Odin (Nikon) and Lumopro LP180R. I use it in manual mode successfully with my Nikon D810.
What I'm wondering is, can I use the Odin/Lumopro combination on my Fuji's (X-Pro1, X-T1, X100S)? I don't care about TTL or the ability to control the flash from the Odin. I would just like the Fuji/Odin combination to fire the Lumopro.
I'm new to this forum, having found it by chance when searching the internet for some help and advice concerning my X-T10.
I absolutely LOVE this camera! HOWEVER, I'm sad to say that I've just continued to experience one problem after another.
I bought my XT-10 just six months ago. After three months, I noticed these odd, dark lines streaking vertically across the image sensor (three of them in total, around two millimeters thick). I took it back to the retailer who sent it on to Fujifilm - it ended up costing my £130 to repair as it wasn't covered under the warranty (the damage wasn't caused by myself - I'm an experienced photographer!) Anyway, that's a story for another day -the point is, this was the start of many more issues to come.
The next issue I experienced was that the rubber started to peel off the viewfinder cup. This started happening about four months in. About five months in, and the chrome plating is noticeably wearing off the shutter button/power switch combo. Both of these issues are purely cosmetic, but really? I mean, this camera is practically brand new!
And now for the latest issue: the play button has broken! This certainly means another trip to the repair shop and possibly another £130 bill. I'm hoping it's covered under the warranty as it appears to be a common problem - see here: X-T10 Play button issue: Fujifilm X System / SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review
Has anyone else experienced these issues, or am I just downright unlucky? If so, any help or advice would be appreciated. Just for reference, the camera has been extremely well cared for - it hasn't been exposed to anything other than normal everyday (average) use and has always been stored correctly.
When i set my camera in Programa mode I can only do program shift with the speed dial and the rear dial doesn't work, no auto ISO or Auto DR is set , I set P mode in my XT10 as usual and both dials can change the program shift with the same lens, I have the latest firmware installed
I've just had Capture One Pro 8 broken by the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. C1 won't start after the update. However, our friends at Phase One are aware of this and there is a download to fix it - version 8.3.5
I just purchased from B&H the XF 23mm f/1.4 for $649.00 after $250.00 instant rebate. I can't help wondering if I made the right choice? The XF 23mm f/2.0 WR is $449.00 and shipping next week. last week I purchased a XT-2. I wondering what the opinion of the Forum is?

So i looooove my Fuji cameras, I just left Nikon for good and sold my last Nikon gear and got a couple of XE2. So Now I have two XE1 (My older cameras) and two XE2 (Not XE2s btw).
And I am going to use them for weddings, outdoor stuff, outdoor portraits and kids portraits and so on. The same with my two X100T, I will use them for the same things as well as outdoor strobist stuff with the sync capability.
But for studio purposes, both humans and cats i am thinking about getting something like a sony A7R or an A7Rii when it's on sale when the A7Riii is out, just for studiowork, especially for all the catstuff i shoot. Cats move around alot and sometimes i really have to crop to be able to get usefull images with focus on their eyes and so on. Plus for those rare moments when a client wants to print like billboard size stuff (Which has happend once before(who the hell wants their wedding photo in a 3x2 meter size? That is crazy to me.)).
So my point is, is it crazy of me to want to get something like the Sony A7R instead of an XT2, Im thinking that i just skip the middle level and go from small filesize and good low light performance and than up to high resolution for studio stuff.
Please, forgive this rather trivial question. When I buy a new camera, the first thing I always do is put a transparent protective film on the screen. I just got an X-70, and before I go through the hassle, can someone tell me if it will affect the «touch» functionality of its screen? Thank you.
Has anyone had time to test out the 35mm f/1.4 on the X-T2? Most of the research I have done prior to the X-T2 seems to indicate a preference for the new 35mm f/2, because it is a WR lens and is smaller, lighter and faster focusing than the f/1.4.
I am wondering if the f/1.4 performs better (faster AF) on the X-T2 than it did on prior model cameras. Right now with rebate and Adorama gift card both lenses end up being exactly the same price and the extra speed of the f/1.4 could come in handy occasionally.
is there any way to open RAW files from my xt2 with irident developer?
i have the latest version but it doesnt open even the jpegs.
I am new to the idea of a soft release button and I have a question for those who use them. Does the button have to be raised so high that it can catch on things or are there low profile versions that work just as well? Thanks for any input you can share.

I've just returned from covering the Photokina 2016 for Photofocus. On day one I had an appointment with Fuji managers where I got to try a working development unit of the new GFX and XF 50mm f2.
I was impressed how workable the GFX already was and how quick the AF and operation was. They have told me that they will most likely improve the overall speed even more in the next 6 month before it should ship. This is very impressive for a compact medium format camera! There are still a lot of specs about the camera that are not disclosed yet, as they may still change by the time the camera ships.
I was also able to play with a pre-production model of the XF 50mm f2. The lens fits in perfectly with the XF 23mm f2 and the XF 35mm f2 in looks, built quality and feel.
I have posted a size comparison of the "22 lens trilogy" on my article for Photofocus that you can find here:

my next photo assignment is a banquet. I'll be shooting guests at tables and an award ceremony.
I'm going to use my x-t2, 16-55, and 32.
No flash, indoor lighting, so my f stop will be fairly wide. The x-t2 does a good job at high ISO, allowing me to shot routinely at 1/125.
Occasionally I miss shots due to depth of field and what the camera decides to focus on.
In these conditions I might get the subject's shirt in focus, but his face out of DOF.
I want to be quick. I suppose I should go to spot focus, 1/2 shutter and recompose.
I've tried face detection and that works well, but slower. Subjects don't want hold pose, and I want to be more candid in my approach.
Thanks for suggestions.
