Otter Trail South Africa

Today, 01:36 AM

Posted by StevieG in Fuji X Photos

Just did a 5 day hike along the coast in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. It's called the Otter Trail, and has to be the most beautiful hike I have ever done, period. Here are some of the shots I took along the way. Mostly with the XT 1 and the 14mm, but also some shots with the 23mm. What a superb camera and lens combo for this kind of thing. So light and portable, with image quality to rival my full frame.

 

Its just a pity the battery life is so terrible. I had to take 3 batteries to get me through 5 days, and I was still culling shots to make sure  I had enough juice for the journey. Next time I'm definately getting a zoom though, to make life a litte easier.

Strobist X100 Triggers etc - please help

Today, 01:02 AM

Posted by futureal33 in X100 and X100S Discussion

Good morning all,

 

First post on this forum, although a regular poster to TalkPhotography, I thought I would try here, as my question is pretty Fuji specific :) Hoping someone can help!

 

Basically I bought a Fuji X100 for strobist reasons, getting flash off camera, and firing it remotely. 

 

In terms of kit, I have quite a few different sets of triggers (years of shooting with Canon tends to leave me with a fairly large spares bucket!!) so Im looking for the best solution...

 

I have also done quite a bit of testing on this myself, and have my own (sort of) conclusions, but was hoping others on here have done the same, and could also chime in?

 

Basically I am looking for the best solution to getting a speedlite off camera, and firing it at 1/1000th f2 (or thereabouts) ISO with the ND filter. This setup should let me overpower daylight with a single speedlite. The problem is that from what I have read, each trigger has a different delay in getting the signal from camera to flash, which when shooting at 1/1000th sec is very important as to get as much flash output in your very fast shutter duration - a slow trigger can result in no flash being seen at all...

 

Trigger wise, I have

a set of Yongnuo YN622s,

Yongnuo RF603s,

Canon 600EX RT (radio) speedlites and a radio transmitter trigger,

2 x Yongnuo optical flashes.

 

Having tested all of the above, I have come to the following conclusions

 

YN622s - Work well. No difference in shooting the flash on 1/1 power or 1/2 power - which suggests either a trigger delay causing not all of the 1/1 flash pop to be "seen" by the camera exposure.... or the T1 time of that flash >1000th/sec = camera shutter has opened and shut before the flash pop has finished - meaning wasted light.

 

RF603s - Not yet tested

 

Canon 600 RT system - Tested with a Yongnuo YN-E3 trigger (same as Canon STe3 but supports non-Canon cameras). Works at 1/250th and below (slower) but not any faster than 1/250th - which suggests that the trigger delay is causing the flash to fire late... and that shutter has finished its cycle before the flash fires. This confuses me, because I read an article recently about this exact setup (X100 / YNe3 and Canon 600 flashes) and in the review this worked flawlessly and also allowed off-camera remote power control of the flash - which would be v useful.

 

Optical - Best so far. Worked flawlessly upto 1/4000th! I guess this kind of makes sense if you consider it is working at the speed of light vs a radio transmission! But comes with several downsides... requires line of sight.... very hit and miss on a bright sunny day and no remote power adjust of the flash - meaning lots of walking to the flash and back to get power right.

 

I have been following David Hobby who uses his X100 for Strobist stuff, and notice that he too uses Optical to fire his Nikon Speedlites... so maybe he's been down the same road I have... but thought I would ask here if anyone else has tried this?

 

I ideally want the Canon RT system to work... This system is amazing on Canon 5D cameras, offering wireless power control of the off-camera flash,. and range of upto 100m...amazing system - but I just cant get it to sync right on the Fuji.... At 1/250th it works great - the flash fires and the exposure picks up the flash no problem... but at 1/1000th it is just a completely black exposure - meaning the sensor isnt picking up any flash at all - even though it is firing..

 

Any help MUCH appreciated!

Thanks :)

Bag for X-T1 w/ battery grip?

Yesterday, 08:02 PM

Posted by jimbofoxman in Fuji X Accessories
I have two ThinkTanks's, the Mirrorless Mover 30i and Turnstyle 20. I like that I can fit my iPad I there as well, they just don't work well with the grip attached. I think I'd prefer a shoulder style rather than a belt style.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

Fujifilm Flash Future and the X30

Yesterday, 05:06 PM

Posted by LJClark in X10, X20 and X30 Discussion

A thought occurred to me and and I went online to check it out...

 

The X-T1 has new "secondary" contacts (the ones arrayed around the large centered contact) in the hot shoe -- five against the three on previous X-cameras.  The X-30 only has the usual three secondary contacts.

 

So are the extra two on the X-T1 only to power the EF-X8 baby flash?

 

If Fujifilm is planning on upping their flash game, are the standard contacts sufficient to pass the information between flash unit/control head and the camera body?  My Nikon D300 bodies (the most recent Nikons I own) have three secondary contacts and those camera can run some pretty decent light setups.

 

On the other hand, the expectation for X30 users is that they don't require the same level of electronic flash sophistication as the APS-C X-cameras.

X-T1 unable to connect to Win 7 computer (cannot find destination PC)

Yesterday, 03:56 PM

Posted by Photogeo180 in X-T1 Discussion

I did my reading before posting, and it seems that most relevant threads have not been updated recently.

 

For instance:

Wireless transfer sucks

Has anyone find a setup guide for WiFi to PC?

Auto Save "Can Not Find Destination PC"

 

Also, I followed the instructions to my best ability and tried many times the Simple as well as the Manual setup but I always get the message "cannot find destination PC".

 

One of the reasons I upgraded to the X-T1 is the WiFi connectivity, so I'm not very happy with the suggestion to buy an Eye-Fi or other brand of Wi-Fi enabled memory card (at least until I know that there is no remedy to the problem).

 

So, my questions are:

 

Are there other X-T1 owners who are still unable to connect their camera to their Win computer?

 

Did anyone with the same problem call Fuji support to get help with he problem?

 

Is it possible that a future firmware upgrade would solve the problem, or even better offer tethered shooting options?

 

Thank you in advance for your time and input!

Help with X-T1 Video Settings

Yesterday, 03:39 PM

Posted by Makeminedecaf in Fuji X Photos

Newbie here – and I don’t know what I have gotten myself into. I have been working on learning my Fuji XT-1 for shooting still photos. A friend asked if I would video a garden club (of all things) doing the ALS challenge. Right now it looks like 10 to 12 people, all dumping water on themselves at one time, at approximately 5 pm in a shady garden area.  I have the kit lens and a tripod, so am thinking I’ll probably be using 18mm to get them all in. Here’s my question:

 

What settings do you think are important to make sure I get the best HD video rendition possible from this camera? I haven’t experimented with face detection on. Should I use this? What about auto focus? At this point, that’s mostly what I have been using. What else? Is it important to turn IS off for video on a tripod, as it is for stills? What about if I use a monopod and move a bit? Any advice is welcomed and appreciated!

Retrospective 20 with the X-t1 with 56mm lens hood

Yesterday, 11:46 AM

Posted by minihessel in X-T1 Discussion

Hello guys.

 

I know I am crazy, but I have this sickness where I always place the camera in the bag.. I know I probably miss a lot of shots by doing this(?), and I should probably see a doctor.. Anyway, is there anyone here using the retrospective 20? I would like to have the X-t1 with the 56mm 1,2 and lens hood attached. I have the 7, but it is just misses a few cm to be high enough.

Fuji x Pro 1 Lose Lens Mount

Yesterday, 11:07 AM

Posted by SunBoy in About the Fuji X Forum

I just purchased a 55-200mm lens and when I mounted it on the body i found that the lens turns about 1/8th of an inch. It does sit snug in the mount but has this twist. i tried with my 18-55mm lens and i can still twist it. this doesn't seem to affect image quality.

 

I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this with their Fuji x Pro 1 bodies?

Bag for X-system and 15" Laptop

Yesterday, 10:37 AM

Posted by mountainpix in Fuji X Accessories

I am trying to find a relatively compact, low-profile bag that will hold an X-Pro1, 18mm, 35mm, and 60mm XF lenses, a 15" Macbook Pro with charger cable, and a couple of portable hard drives. That's about it. The only bag I presently have that will do this is a Think Thank Urban Disguise 50, but it's total overkill, with too many flaps, pouches, zippers and extra weight and bulk.

 

Any suggestions?
