New fuji italian user...

Today, 01:57 PM

Posted by acquleoEX in Members - Introductions

hi,

I'm an italian software developer with passion of photography since 2010.

I owned a Nikon D5100 before and after a D600 with a lot of lenses, until the last week.

In the last year due to a lot of work, and all the other life stuff, rarely i found time to bring the big and heavy bag with me.

 

I made also a fantastic street workshop with an amazing italian photographer and found the d600 not very useful for this kind of photography.

At the end, i decided to sell everything and buy a x-e2 with the standard zoom lens and the 27mm pancake.

I'm very excited to be part of this amazing new community.

thanks to all.

27mm pancake manual focus crackling and popping?

Today, 01:42 PM

Posted by acquleoEX in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion

hi,
I bought a new x-e2 with a 18-55 lens and a 27mm pancake lens.

I'm very happy about the camera, but i have a doubt about the autofocus noise of the 27mm lens.

I know it's not a silent motor like the 18-55 but i need to know if this behaviour is normal.

 

I've attached some wave samples.

(afs.wav) autofocus single - it sound fine to me
(afc.wav) autofocus continuous - it sound fine until reach the focus point and it start to crackling and popping. I didn't use af-c so this could be not a problem.
(manual focus.wav) manual focus - rotating the focus ring it the motor reproduce the same crackling and popping.

 

Probably this issue is only in my head, but i need an answer becouse i never heard a manual focus noise like this, even with other lenses i had (Nikon-Tamron)

 

thanks to all
Leonardo

Angel of the North

Today, 11:48 AM

Posted by jamie allan in Fuji X Photos

I spent the weekend driving nearly 1000km to my daughters apartment in Sheffield and back as she and her husband are moving to Japan for 5 years. To cheer myself up I thought I'd drive home to Scotland up the east coast of England taking in the Holy Isle as I came back up. Unfortunately I arrived just as the tide came in so couldn't cross the causeway. I'd never been to see the Angel of the North so I hopped over and managed to take a couple of images just before a bus full of sightseers arrived. There's something quite alien about this structure.

any experiences with leica 14312 strap and fuji ex1?

Today, 09:37 AM

Posted by studio347 in X-E1 and X-E2 Discussion

Hi,

I'm new and recently got X-E1 and 27mm. I like the small profile. I'm thinking to add the leica strap. Any experiences?

I know people are obsessed with small things~ha.

I like the small presence of leica. I like the Fuji one too, just want to have a nice clothing for the new friend~

I looked other treads and checked those out. But for some reasons, this leica one seems to be better fit to my taste...

I want to hear from forum members before getting it.

Thanks in advance.

100% clean EVF on EX1?

Today, 09:36 AM

Posted by studio347 in X-E1 and X-E2 Discussion

Hi,

I have a X-E1. Is there any way to remove the exposure chart and/ or silence warning sign off the EVF?

The standard EVF has always exposure chart. And for the custom EVF, there is always silence warning sign before pushing the shutter button half way. I like to keep the camera silence on all the time.

Thanks in advance!

Fuji Convert From New Mexico

Today, 09:21 AM

Posted by Jay-Bird in Members - Introductions

Hello all,

 

I wanted to introduce myself! My name is Jason, but everyone calls me Jay-Bird; for the last 5 years I have been shooting Canon.

 

I started with a Rebel XT, then a 20D, after that a 60d and then finally on to the big 5D Mark II. I loved me some Full Frame, but, I came to the realization that while its IQ is amazing, it really did not fit what I wanted to do with the camera. I came to the epiphany this summer, While hiking to the top of Half Dome in Yosemite NP, I needed something durable, great IQ, yet small enough to where it will not be a burden. The Half Dome hike is a 14 mile round trip with several thousand feet of vertical gain. You have to pack a lot of water with you, so weight is at a premium. I ended up leaving my Mark II in the car, and took up my EOS-M. Nice and small, has an APS-C, but is a bit clumsy and the AF is somewhere between unusable and annoying. Sadists designed the AF I believe. It also has to be weather sealed, I do a lot of hiking. 

 

This brought me into the Fujifilm fold. I have been lusting over a X100S since they came out. I got to try an X20 this summer and dug the build quality and the photography first design philosophy. I knew if I liked the X20, the bigger Fujis would be killer. So I have dumped my Canon kit, and purchased a X-T1 with kit lens to get me started on. I usually dont bother with kit lenses, I buy a body and a prime, but considering the kit is 2.8-4, I figured it would be a decent "do-it-all" lens.

 

I have some reward points coming back to me from the purchase, so I will probably get the 27mm pancake as well. Hard to argue with that 300 dollar price right now. 

 

I am actually going to be picking up my X-T1 today, so I cant wait to get started on shooting! I have a 7 month old Corgi who will be my model today; if I can get him to stand still! 

 

I am excited about learning from you guys and gals!

Hello from Minneapolis, MN (recent Nikon convert)

Today, 09:14 AM

Posted by NatePT in Members - Introductions

Hello all,

 

Glad I found this forum - tons of great info! I'm in the process of selling off my Nikon gear and anxiously awaiting my new XT-1 with grip that is due to arrive today! I have a D5200 and was about to move up to a D7100 before stumbling on an XT-1 review. It really looks like the perfect camera for me (once they improve the video a bit and allow manual control - hoping it's in the upcoming firmware update). I loved to use manual Nikkor's (prefer to adjust the aperture on the lens and manually focus depending on the situation), but the D5200 was not made for it - the viewfinder was so dim it was difficult to focus accurately and there were way too many menus to deal with (over buttons/dials). It was also too plasticky for my uses, i ended up leaving it home depending on weather/trail conditions when hiking (which is typically the best time to take nature/landscape pics). I was also sick of their lack of love dedication to their ASPC line - clearly they are only targeting average consumers. When I saw the lineup of primes alone I was sold on Fuji - throw in all the features of the XT-1 and it was a no brainer. Just wish I had explored these earlier - would have saved me a lot of money.

 

I'm still trying to figure out what lenses to get - I want one of the WR zooms (either the 18-135 or 16-55), but am likely going to wait on the final specs of the 16-55 to make that decision (OIS is a must for me in a zoom, and if the 16-55 is too big/heavy I'll likely have to pass). I'd rather have the 16-55 as I probably wouldn't miss 56-135, but would use it if I had it I'm sure (mainly going for a zoom with weather sealing and OIS since I shoot some video). In the meantime I'll work on a set of their excellent primes (likely start with the 23 or 27 and add the 14 at some point). 

 

Once I get out with the XT-1 I'll post some pics for critique.

 

Thanks!

Hello

Today, 09:04 AM

Posted by J. Peg in Members - Introductions

I am a recent member of this forum.  I have been involved in photography since I was 21 and started working for the Woodstock Daily Sentinel, in 1971.  Since then I have worked freelance, but for the past couple of decades I have been a teacher.  I have taught for 14 years at McDowell Tech.  We have a two-year photography degree program at the school.  You can see some student work here:  www.mcdowelltechphotography.com

I have had approximately 25 solo shows in galleries throughout the southeastern US.

 

I started shooting with a Canon FT, but a kind, camera store owner in my area made sure I could afford a Leica.  So, Leica was my main camera for many years, until it was stolen.  Then I went back to Canon for about ten years.  The last 15 years I have again been shooting a Leica M7.  I bought the Fuji "sexy one" in August of 2014.  I am totally impressed and seduced with the Fuji.  It is a remarkable camera and I am as exited as I was when I started my photographic career 45 years ago!

X-T1 Freezing-Up While Shooting

Today, 08:13 AM

Posted by BertiepATX in X-T1 Discussion

I'm a long time photographer, but a new-ish Fuji user (and lover), and am encountering a very frustrating limitation of this great camera. Last night I had a shoot and found that the camera's EVF would freeze-up and the shutter not fire for maybe 5-10 seconds after shooting 20 or so exposures in fairly rapid succession on single exposure mode (ie not in either burst mode).

 

During this period, the green LED would turn to orange, which I took to mean that it was too busy processing to shoot (I may be way off here). Is this a general limitation of the camera, a limitation of SD cards (in this case a Scandisk Ultra class 10; my other camera uses CF and I've never encountered this problem), or a problem with my specific camera?

 

If anyone more knowledgeable than me has ideas as to why this might be occurring, I would be mighty grateful for your advice!

 

I don't know if any of this is pertinent, but I was shooting RAW+jpeg fine on manual exposure, manual focus, the camera was set to high performance mode.

 

Thanks!!

Would you buy the X100T with EVF only

Today, 07:14 AM

Posted by Razeus in Fujifilm X News & Rumors

I got a feeling the new X100T will be EVF only, doing away with the OVF. I'm not sure how I feel about that since the X100S is my main camera for street photography in which I use the OVF to see what's coming in the frame. With EVF, what you see is what you get. I love the X100S as it's the best camera I've used (coming from a Nikon D800), though I'm hoping the AF and wake-up would be much, much faster on version T, which I'm sure it will be.

 

Would you buy an X100T with EVF only?

Summer hollydays with my X-E1

Today, 03:51 AM

Posted by gnondpomme in Fuji X Photos

For the first time I want on hollydays with my X-E1 and the 18-55. Loved this setting even if I missed some wide apertures fixed lenses like the 23 or the 35. One of those will probably be my next purchase.

 

So I was in the south of France near the city of Carcassonne and there was a lot to see and photograh ! Hope you will like these shots !

X-T1 in the cold

Today, 03:26 AM

Posted by mashgau in X-T1 Discussion

We are planning a family trip just before Christmas to Finland (Laponie --> Lapland in english ?). So there should be a lot of snow and also minus 0 températures.

 

I'm just wondering how the X-T1 (without a WR lens I have to say) would work by those very low temperature. It is given to be able to work by -10°C (14°F if I'm correct), but I should get some even lower T° I think.

 

Maybe some of you fellow Fuji users (maybe Canadian ones ?) did already use your camera under some extreme weather conditions ? Appart from keeping the battery warm, do you have any advices ?

 

The cold should be very "dry" also, so I'm figuring it's not the worse ...
