I'm looking for base plates with battery access and with a tripod socket sufficiently removed to fit a Peak Design standard tripod plate and allow easy battery removal. Does any one have any recommendations?

Pretty cool story. With the amount of film shooters in the PNW it's unlikely this camera dates from the 50s when it was likely originally made, but it sure would be cool to see what is on the exposed roll. Doubtful anything would survive the exposure to water etc. as the roll and camera back were damaged/punctured.

I recently got an X-e2 for backpacking, kayaking, and bike touring (though I'm quickly falling in love with the system so it will get more use then just that I have no doubt). During those actititys I use a peak design capture clip, which requires you to use the capture clips quick release plate.

With the tripod socket being off center it puts the plate over the battery door. So I was looking at possibly getting a RRS base plate (no grip and no portrait orientation plate) or the Fuji hand grip.

My question is to anyone who uses those with the capture clip.

Do the plates (RRS or Fuji) move the tripod socket far enough for the capture clips qr plate not to interfere with the battery door? (as in you do not have to take the qr plate off to change the battery/card)

It seems it's official. It was announced here in Japan too that delivery of the X-Pro2 will be delayed until sometime in the beginning of March.

I'm hoping the X70 comes out on time. That would help keep me entertained until the X-Pro2 finally comes out.

Been out to try the zone af today. Weather was poor so was the lighting. but the XE2 can now capture moving objects. I could never get a shot like this with the old system...sorry for the grainy shot but the light was so poor everything was pushed to the max. DSCF0861.jpg

I was playing around with Acros simulations, got tired of the low contrast and mushy look so went 180 degrees and got this.

My very first investment in m42 lenses arrived ten minutes ago after a long and uneventful trip from Manitoba, Canada. Inside were two boxes, wrapped in brown paper and remarkably small for the telephotos they were advertised to be. A 135mm and a 200mm. I admit it--feeling kinda stoked. And my K&F M42 arrived yesterday.

Did I mention these things are small? Oh, and they have blades, I flashed a light inside and thought "no way, I'm not even going try". It's a beautiful tactile response rotating the preset switch and seeing those blades effortlessly open and close.

Going out to shoot. :)

PS: I guess m39 or L39 lenses would be even smaller due to the adapter.

Very interesting information about development of the Acros simulation for the S-Pro2 -- and why it won't be coming to other bodies as a firmware update...

The Acros is one of the things most exciting to me about the Pro2. That's film I used to shoot with. Loved it.

Hi,

Got my X100T yesterday and was out shooting today - with electronic shutter. Can anyone help me with why the background, especially at the top, is so strangely blurred? Is it the electronic shutter? Both the JPEG and RAW-File has the same thing. And its in many of the pictures i took. (This image is OOC with Classic Chrome) Thanks!

Thank you for everyone who contributed to January's FX Monthly it was our best month yet! With 130 posts on the topic of water. Again it was fantastic to see the different interpretations of the theme and to showcase the talent with have on this forum.

As February is the month of Valentine's Day I have chose the rather cliched theme of love. This can be the word love or something which represents this. The only limit is your imagination.

It would be a help if you give your picture a title so to help us understand your point of view but it's not compulsory. Name the camera and lens used - if you can remember - because it's interesting to know but, again, it's not compulsory just helpful.

The rules are deliberately loose so go out and shoot with this month's theme in mind or start searching back through those pictures you took oh-so long ago that you'd forgotten about and start posting! It doesn't have to be your best ever shot and it's not a competition so you might surprise the rest of us and yourself - it's just about sharing some pictures, seeing others' take on the topic, and enjoying it!

Any equipment as long as it and the photo complies with the forum's rules of either camera or lens or both made by Fuji.

This is not a competition. Please post freely - especially newcomers and please remember there's no judging or criticism (good or bad) in this thread. So, if you'd like to show your acknowledgement or appreciation that someone has posted their picture then instead of posting a comment please use the "like" button that you can find at the bottom right of every post.

Please post away and I look forward to seeing your interesting interpretations of this month's theme.

I met up with former students from my photography class to do some lightpainting and go out for Pizza :D

I brought the X-T10 with me because of the flippy screen and the wifi remote app so that I could do some stuff myself and take pictures doing so.

Here's one a student painted with a green LED band for joggers. :)

I was persuaded to buy this goddam Apple computer. I managed to download the firmware upgrade for my X-E2, but now I can't figure out how to transfer the downloaded data file to the data card. Can someone tell me what to do?

My PC was so intuitive. Everything on the Mac OS is opaquely coded in "cute" and uninformative labels. Why did I let myself spend my money on this extravagant piece of unmanageable junk?

Thanks for your help!

I like the shape and weight of XF 27mm, but often it renders details in the way they look a bit "plastic" comparing to XF 35mm or XF 23mm.

I've found interesting XF 27mm review on Photozone.de that explains that problem.
Looks like JPEG conversion applies significant distortion correction. That's why IQ got reduced, and probably why I often see that "plastic" look.

Then I realized X-T1 uses LMO (Lens Modulation Optimizer), that can be also turned OFF.

I don't have XF 27mm anymore, so wonder if anyone noticed difference on this lens with LMO turned ON/OFF.

I'm off to Iceland next week and am looking to buy some Ziploc type bags to put my X-T1 into when returning indoors from the cold. I can't find them locally so will have to mail order.

The largest lens I will have fitted is the 18-55.

Here is my question: which size bag do I need to take the camera and 18-55?
Views: 283 / Likes: 0 / Replies: 7
Like most of you, I have several/many bags and depending on where I’m going and what I’m shooting determines which bag I use. My wife and I don’t travel a lot, but probably 2 or 3 flights per year to visit family. I usually use a backpack as my carry-on for camera gear, but the past couple of flights have been a bit challenging as I have to use a cane when I walk longer distances – such as in airports. For most of the trips I don’t have to take along all my photo gear. I was looking for a small roller bag that would fit under the seats. During my search I came across a solution that works great for me – I found a Samsonite Underseater Roller – small – measures 13in by 13 by 9. I found it at a local Samsonite outlet for $50 – at the time Amazon had it for $57 (is now listed at $160!). I then looked for different inserts to use – and found an insert from South Korea on Amazon that fit the open space on the roller exactly! It was around $35. Size of that is 11.4 by 5 by 13. Not the best for protection, but as an insert it works out really well. I have a Tenba BYOB insert that I can use when I don’t want to use the bigger insert .. the insert is Horusbennu Backpack Partition Camera Insert. Shipping from south Korea via amazon purchase was only 2 weeks. So I now have a nice roller bag that can also double as a standard overnight bag, and it fits under airline seats or in overhead bin. bag1.JPG bag2.JPG insert1.jpg insert2.jpg insert3.jpg

Yesterday evening I had to drive my family to Monza, a very nice town in the outskirts of Milan (North side).
So I thought: Why not to pick up my carry-everywhere camera, the X 30?
Thus, while my family were doing what hey had to do, I took a walk in the center, around the Arengario (the name comes from the word "arringare": to address with speech), because it was the place where in the Medieval Commune epoch authorities spoke to the people. A sort of Town Hall.
The Arengario of Monza is in a very nice square, it just stopped raining, thus there were good shooting options, at least I think so,
but you will be the judge(s)

Hi there,

When I use flash with my X-Pro1 I like to manual set the exposure to 1/200sec. Turning the dial to 1/250 and then with the thumbwheel I set it on 1/200. No problem what so ever.

But then, after a shot or after, let's say, 15/25 sec it's back on 1/250 and this irritates me very much. Is there a way to lock the exposure to 1/200?

Thanks a lot!

Hello there!
Recently I bought 16-55 and nissin i40 for my x-t10. I think to shoot in dark couditions like clubs. Problem that appears is that focus assist lamp on x-t10 can't hit targets and focus misses often. And the build in nissing i40 focus assist lamp won't work with fuji ? I understand that after I bought the flash. Any ides? Or any chance this to be fixed somehow..... I work with tools and it serious problem for me so much money wasted......

Given the cornucopia of Fuji goodness that has been showered upon us this year I feel a bit greedy for wishing for a FW update for the forgotten camera, the lowely X-M1, but will do so anyway. I'd love the B&W mode to have filters available at least.

Does anybody have a clue if there is an upgrade (FW) in the works?
