Fine + RAW with WiFi

Today, 07:07 PM

Posted by fivesense in X-T1 Forum

I'm set up to shoot "Fine + RAW" which I believe means RAW + JPEG fine.  I did this on the advice of an article I read whereby it suggested this setting so I could use Focus Assist to 100%.  I set my film simulation to Velvia.

 

I intend to use the FujiFilm app for my iPad, for the occasional transfer of JPEG images directly from the XT to my iPad.  First question- which FujiFilm app do I choose from the iTunes store?  There are I believe three different apps- I chose the Camera Remote one as it allows me to both control my camera from my iPad and accept image transfer from my camera.  Is this the best one to use?

 

Second question- when I want to transfer images via WiFi, does the JPEG image transfer with the film simulation applied to the JPEG image?  And I assume the RAW file stays intact for later download on my computer.

 

I'm just trying to weave through all the fantastic tech of this camera, hence the very likely basic question above.

 

 

Thanks!

How to click from down without being down (physically)

Today, 05:15 PM

Posted by Vaibhav in General X Camera Forum

Hi All,

 

I might sound not the best at 33 years, but with a problem in my knee, I prefer not to kneel or lie down to click photographs.

 

Just had a thought a few seconds ago, what if I use a monopod or selfie pod and put the camera reverse down and use the mobile app to click the photographs. Reason I mention this, carrying/ setting up a tripod is difficult more than.

 

Please advice, if there are any other suggestions.

 

If the monopod is the solution or any, request you to please suggest a name/ link too.

 

 

Thank you,

Cheers !!!

 

X-E2 is what I have right now.

x100s LCD solarised and glitchy

Today, 05:10 PM

Posted by hello people in X100, X100S and X100T Forum

Hey, I have had my X100S for about a year or so. It looks to me like the back LCD is on the way out. All the menus, images and everything appears glitchy and solarised. I have updated to the latest firmware...but there has been no improvement. Is this a known issue?

 

I've never dropped the camera...haven't had it anywhere near water...basically it's been very well protected and taken care of.

 

Any suggestions or knowledge about this is much appreciated

 

thanks

Business trip photos - Maui last week

Today, 04:11 PM

Posted by liggy in Travel

I'm constantly traveling for business.  Mostly a pain but sometimes get to mix in some pleasure.  One of the reasons I went with the X100S was to always have a camera with me.  Prior to the X it's always been a cheapo point and shoot or iPhone.

 

Knowing my nature - if I bought an ILC there would be the inevitable flurry of lens purchases. 

 

Recently broke down and picked up an X-T1 and brought it along for a trip last week along with the 18-55, the 55-230 and the 8mm Sammy.

 

Just a few snapshots.  The electronic shutter was pretty nifty shooting into the sunset and for silent photos during a round of golf.  Had a chance to tee it up at the Plantation course in Kapalua.  Very nice.

 

All just jpegs - some cropped.  Have yet to delve into the world of lightroom or other photo editing programs.  Just trying to learn how to get what I want from the camera first.

 

As always - any and all suggestions/critiques are welcomed!

Fuji X-T1 shooter wins Terry O'Sein Award

Today, 03:30 PM

Posted by JonMo in Fujifilm X News & Rumors

Just a heads up to any that may be interested;

 

The Terry O'Sein Awards are given to up and coming photographers.

Giorgio Bianchi has won the top prize this year, he shot his series with the X-T1.

 

His series is called "Behind Kiev's Barricades". I found the images quite powerful.

 

As you could guess they are images based on what is currently happening in the Ukraine.

Pine Creek Revisited

Today, 02:28 PM

Posted by Dobson in General

I went back through my Pine Creek photos from last week. Nothing too fancy, just a fun day outdoors with the girlfriend. The color balance on the second pitch has given me a lot of trouble. The light was incredibly cool, so it took a lot of work to get something that wasn't overwhelmingly blue.

I thought the chasm formed by the waterfall was pretty cool. It's not a particularly difficult or dangerous pitch, but the climbable ice precarously perched above the raging falls gives a great "people shouldn't be doing this!" feeling.

What are you doing to improve your photography?

Today, 12:14 PM

Posted by robert in General Photography Talk
Photo forums are often dominated by gear talk, even on forums which are not brand-specific. What lens should I buy, which kit is optimum for this situation, what I'd like to see in the next model, etc., etc.

This is all quite normal and reasonable of course. But sometimes it's a good idea to step back and look at things from the viewpoint of "what exactly do I want to accomplish? What are my goals? Or even, I have no real direction, it's about time I set some photographic goals..."

With that in mind, I'll start with my first personal goal: to simplify and improve my 'seeing,' if you will.

There are so many great images that have been posted on this forum over the past (almost) four years, and many of them are simply showing the every-day -- the things we often see, yet take for granted as being mundane and uninteresting photographically. And yet the photographer has found an angle, or unique view or used light in such a way so as to create a truly great photograph. No need to travel to some exotic location....they are all around if one just 'sees' them. So that is my goal...to improve my vision.

What are your goals?

Olympus Zuiko on X-Pro?

Today, 12:12 PM

Posted by Gromit in Adapted Lens Forum

Hi all,

 

I've just bought a fairly cheap OM-XF adapter off the Bay for my newly-acquired OM lenses (50mm-f1.4 & 75-150 f4). Has anyone out there in X-Land had any success with using the Olympus glass on their Fuji cameras? I know the lenses themselves are very good (the zoom probably isn't great but it only cost buttons) so am hoping the OM-FX marriage could be a good one. Nice thing of course is that the OM lenses all have DoF preview (stop-down) buttons on the lens barrel which will make metering a lot easier.

 

Thanks. :)

A little sport with the XF50-140mm....

Today, 09:44 AM

Posted by GilBarib in 50-140mm

Hi

 

There was a speed skating (long track) event this weekend in my hometown, I though it would be a good test for the AF tracking of  my XT-1 + XF50-140mm....

This competition was part of the Canadian Junior Championships and  Canada Cup #3 so these are top athletes,  there fast!  Average speeds of the skaters are in the 40 to 50 km/hr (28mph) for the 1000m race.

The sky was quite cloudy, sometimes with a little snow gently falling, temperature was around -10°.

Most of the time if I could aim right then the XT-1 could get a nice sequence of in focus shots.

 

Here are the setting on my X-T1:

AF-C at 8fps,

Focus area, central point at the second biggest setting,

PreAF on,

High Performance Mode on,

Focus priority release,

OIS off

Shooting raw only with a 280mb/sec 16gb SD card I could get around 20 frames before it would slow down the X-T1 to 2 or 3 fps, then it took just a few sec to clear the buffer and be ready again for the next passage.

 

As expected I do find that the AFC tracking on the XF50-140mm is much better then on the XF55-200mm. 

I'm quite happy with the progress that the Fuji-X system has made since I got my X-E1+XF35mm in 2012, getting there...

Are the X100/S/T series Fuji cameras the only model that has the ND filter capability? I know my X-E1 does not but am wondering about the others (X-Pro/X-E2/X-T1). Just making some decisions on equipment as I want to cut back to what I need and will use. Thanks in advance for any info :D .

Using filters/lens hood on the X100T

Today, 09:14 AM

Posted by zicitron in X100, X100S and X100T Forum

Hi all,

 

From what I've read, it seems that to be able to connect a filter to the X100T's lens, one needs to screw a lens adapter first and then connect the 49mm filter or lens hood to that adapter. Basically, I need to buy a lens adapter and then look for a filter with a 49mm thread. However, I've also read about the need for a step-up ring....how does this thing come into the equation?
