56mm f/1.2 - Not Just for Portraits

Today, 09:38 PM

Posted by Aby_Cat in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion

I have seen many posts on the forum with people saying that the 56mm is primarily for portraits.  Yes, it is great for that, but I am finding that it works wonderfully for other applications, too.  Nature photos are a good example.

Is your X-T1 sensor a dust magnet?

Today, 08:05 PM

Posted by summiter in X-T1 Discussion

I was with Canon before Fuji.  Few dust issues.  My 40D, in 4 years, never needed a sensor cleaning.  My 10D needed 2 in as many years, and the same with my 30D.

 

I love my X-T1, but it somehow catches more dust than a Swifter in an abandoned house.  I'm resigned to cleaning every week or so, if that's what it takes.  I change lenses more carefully and quickly than I've seen done by anyone else- the same way I did with all my other cameras- the new lens hovering over the one being removed, ready for immediate attachment.  

 

So, my question, for those of you who have had other cameras for a number of years, is: 

Are you finding more dust on your X-T1 sensor, that rises to the level of stark visibility in a normal sky shot, than you've encountered with your previous cameras?

 

Maybe I just have bad camera-karma this time around, but you never know...

 

Thanks!

how many of the members look at the photos?

Today, 07:47 PM

Posted by back alley in Fuji X Photos

i'm curious how many of us regularly head over to the photo section of this website and look at the images?

not just at the images made from the lenses we might be thinking about buying or comparing them to the lenses we have bought, but purposefully look at member's pics for the sheer enjoyment of it?

this might not be a fair question to ask on a forum dedicated to one brand of gear and therefore a gear focused forum…but i am sincerely curious.

for the record…i travel through several forums a day and often head over to flickr just to look at photos.

Anyone have an XPro1 AND an X100s? VF query.

Today, 04:48 PM

Posted by denton in X-Pro1 Discussion

Hi all:

 

I have an X100S and recently got an X-E2. I'm getting increasingly unhappy with the view options in the X-E2, especially with the lack of a 'view' button. I'm sure it is my fault as I wear large glasses, am left eyed, and mostly shoot verticals (I do street style in NYC). I miss an OVF.

OTOH, I love the VF options in the X100S, and almost always use the OVF.

 

I was thinking of trading the X-E2 for an Xpro1. But before making the same mistake again, I wanted to compare the X100S finder with that on the Xpro1. Any comments as to differences and/or similarities?

 

For my street style work, I almost always have the 35mm mounted to my X-E2, altho I also own and sometimes use the 14mm and the 60mm.

 

Secondarily, anyone who has happened to use an XPro and a X-E2, is there really a significant difference in focusing speed?

 

 

Thanks!

Fuji 35/1.4, SMC Takumar 50/1.4, Canon FD SSC 50/1.4 or..?

Today, 03:11 PM

Posted by Tracktionmonkey in Adapted Lens Discussion

To adapt or not to adapt, that is the conundrum? I'm relatively new to the joy of the Xpro1 and Fuji's cabinet of slightly pricey delights. At the moment my only lens is the dependable Fuji 10-24. I'm a wide angle addict (!)
I had a Fuji 35/1.4 for a short time. I loved its sharpness. And would have liked to have explored what I could have done with its sweet DOF, much more.
And here is my dilemma. Born of financial limitations as so often...As I'm currently having to choose, the auto focus Fuji. Or a new venture into the world of adapted glass and that awkward extension of the adapter! I do not have much experience of manually focusing any camera! But, after reading of the delights here and elsewhere, I am tempted by the bokeh of the Takumar. Or the contrast of the Canon FD.
Yet, concerned over the cost, the added length and the functionality of the adapters out there. How simply the adapter would allow me to mount either lens without having to do any filing!
Learning the art of swiftly focusing one of these beautiful older lenses is a main concern. As I do not tend to use a tripod. And then making sure that I don't get caught up in any time consuming or expensive delays in getting 'the adapter' to work correctly. Perhaps, ideally, I might go for the Fuji 56/1.2, or even the Fuji 23/1.4. But, not at the current prices. Ideally I'd have or will have a 35/50/85 and so on!
So, I am left wondering where to put my limited funds and get a functional, sharp and creative lens. I know the Fuji can cut it. I guess I'm unsure how well I'd get the manual lens habit, after years of being spoilt with AF! And if only those adapters were not required to stick out so far! As this lens would be my walk around alternative to the hefty 10-24/4.
Rather a long introduction to my question. But, if anyone has any advice I'll be most grateful. I currently wish there were a smaller, better looking, 'manual' lens/adapter combination I could afford. But Leica etc. are pricey. (I even had a look at a £75 tilt Kipon adapter today!) Does anyone have any tips I've not considered? Or should I fork out for the slightly more expensive but reliable option of S/H Fuji AF glass?

X-T1 Interval Shooting Timer

Today, 02:30 PM

Posted by thomaslchen in X-T1 Discussion

I just tested out the interval shooting timer on my X-T1 and noticed something.  

 

I set the camera to take a picture every second, but when I set the camera to start shooting, it takes a picture every ~3 seconds.  It seems like it's writing to the card til it takes any more photos.  I'm using a Kingston 32GB Class 10 SDXC card which should be adequate for this shooting speed.  It has a 30MB/s speed.

 

Has anyone else that used this function found the same thing?  Or are there some settings I need to change?

Posted by oneder in X100 and X100S Discussion

I have been following used X100S auctions lately to see how prices have been holding up and was shocked when this deal went down!

 

Wow, $600us for an X100S with wide conversion lens, case and thumbs up grip!!

That has to be the best deal anyone has gotten to date on a used FujiXtrans?
