Saw this ride at a Carnival and was quite curious to what a slow shutter could bring out. Used a tripod for these images. :) EXIF in each photo.

MOMENTUM (Iso200 f5.6 1/2sec) 2 frames stitched together as I caught this rider on the left out of pure luck. Same shutter speed was used for both frames.

Does anyone know if the new WCL and TCL mk2's will work with the older x100 models?

I am asking because I know I will sell off my T for the F at some point but want the TCL now for some leaf shutter flash portraits.

Cheers.

Every time I adjust my aperture setting in Aperture priority mode, the camera does not save the last aperture setting but always goes back to the lowest aperture f stop. Is there a way to force the camera to save the last used f stop rather than resetting itself back to the lowest f stop?

I'm planning a bucket list trip to New York for a week in mid-March, just me and a camera.

I'm staying near the Chelsea Hotel and so far my list includes Aperture and The Oculus at the World Trade Centre.
Any suggestions of good places to photograph or visit? I'd like to try my hand at one of those iconic. Brooklyn Bridge shots. I'm not planning any gear shopping but if there's a camera store worth visiting for used Fuji lenses I'd be interested.

Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

This is my first night shot with this lens. I had to take a couple exposures to get the focus right (it's not the best in low light), but enjoying the results when it nailed it on the 3rd try.

Hi guys, I am new around here and I have been shooting with an X-T1 for not very long. Still in the learning curve actually. I was also looking at decent alternatives to LR and C1 for different reasons. I have been using ON1 Photo Raw since the pre-release and the software is getting better but still has a lot ng way to go.

By accident, I recently found Alien Skin Exposure X2 but I haven't tried it yet. They will be sending out a big update soon apparently with broad layering support so I wanted to wait for this update to download the trial version. By that time, I was wondering if anybody around here is using it and what results are you getting with X-trans RAF conversation. How is the details rendering?

Thanks for your help.

W-T2, 23 1.4 at 2.0 and window light. The rolling curtain was halfway down, so the light was coming from below. An unusual lighting, but I think it works. What do you think?

I love this camera. Long story short - after 15 years of film and dSLR Nikons, culminating in the D800, I sold all my (modern) Nikon kit to switch over to the XP2 in August last year. Don't regret it one bit.

Well, maybe one little bit. The damn' eyepiece in my XP2 has gone AWOL now 3 time since purchase and has been back to Fuji UK to be fixed twice.

It's really disappointing that such a great camera is marred by such a silly fault, and that Fuji frankly aren't acknowledging it. I'm not a pro, my kit is well treated although not babied. Fuji UK dissembled and waffled when I called them about it despite numerous reports online.

This time I decided that to hell with it, I didn't want to be without my camera that I carry every day for another 10 days only for a fix to last 2 weeks. So I decided to build my own replacement out of Sugru. Here it is...

[​IMG]

Only half the eyepiece left

A hub from my 5 year olds' lego car was the perfect diameter to form the rest of the pupil.

Pretty nearly done. Took about 15 minutes work. Use light finger pressure to smooth the Sugru off after making the new eyepiece. I'll see how long it lasts but I'm thinking I may end up making a mould to produce a whole eyepiece as Fuji UK won't send them out, insisting on you sending the body in (unlike Fuji USA, who reportedly just send you out an eyepiece, much more sensible).

I may need to clean the pupil after it set properly but I had a squint through it after about 3 hours and it looked ok. YMMV but this is looking good so far!

XT2 and XF55-200mm today at a local State Park.
I've tried versions of this pic before and the sunlight leaking in usually renders the pic useless.
The XT2 has enough DR headroom to let me take pics that I stopped trying with older generation sensors.

Thanks for looking,

Is their a way in fuji xt2 to check sharpness of an image, like zoom or something ? my xt20 has a touch screen which I will use zoom for to check, but I don't know how to do this on the xt2.



thanks

I pre-ordered the F and have it in my hands. When my T was stolen a year ago I didn't replace it, glad to have a little camera back in my hands (instead of the beastly x-t2 :) )


The Screen Setup offers continuous review of the image one has just captured, 2 secs, .5 secs, or no review. But setting it on no review "off" doesn't work -- the image displays on the screen or in EVF until I press "OK."


What am I missing? Anyone?

thank you

I saw the VW microbus parked here yesterday and came back for a photo, and was pleased to see an aging VW bug in the lead. I took several shots, expecting an angry homeowner to come out of the woodwork at any moment to shoo me away.

I went out with my new X-T20 today to test it out and one of the pictures came out with some strange squiggle lines on it. Sorry I don't have anything to mark the spots but if you look left of the mushroom you can see it in 2 places. One is to the left and up a bit and the other is directly left between the mushroom and the edge. I was thinking I may have had electronic shutter on but I didn't. It was on mechanical. Anyone seen this before? I took about 25 - 30 shots and that's the only one that came out with those lines. I had also taken 3 other shots of the mushrooms and they didn't have the lines.

I've been taking the X-Pro2 on my nightly neighborhood walks with the dog. Love the mix of lighting at night.
Haven't been arrested yet for wandering around with a camera at night, so that's a plus.
These were with the 23 2, 35 1.4, and 60 2.4.

These were taken with the new compact 23mm f/2...the AF was plenty fast enough. Love this lens.

Photographed at the Ripley Aquarium in Toronto. X-T2, 23 mm f 1.4 lens, shot at 1/60 sec, f 4, ISO 1600. Shot as JPEG, with colour balance modified and contrast boosted in ACR. To avoid reflections from the glass I used a rubber lens hood, pressed against the glass.

The first two are Australian Spotted Jellyfish, the second two are Pacific Nettle Jellyfish.

I was looking at videos of this bag on YouTube, and it seems like it's exactly what I'd want in a bag for my two cameras and 4 lenses. But it appears that it's not in production anymore. Can anybody confirm this? And if this is the case, are there any bags similar to it?

Hello. I am waiting for my first ever Fuji X camera to arrive, the X-T20 and was wondering what would be the recommended Post Processing software to compliment my camera. I have obviously been looking at adobe, but I'm not sure about cloud subscriptions. ON1 looks interesting. Any suggestions would be very helpful.
I should say that I have done very little admustment of images in the past but I do want to try and get the best I can out of my new camera.
Thanks in advance.

The Pentacon 200mm f/4 (former Meyer Optik 4/200) M42 lens for ca. 40$. This is the older version with 15 aperture blades, do not get the newer (inferior) 6 blade version.

There is some softness & ca at F4 but it becomes quite nice at F8.

Hi All

Sorry if this has been asked before' Im in the process of buying x2 XT2's and I'm wondering about the two card slots as i have quite a few memory cards already .
What happens if i use two cards which have different write speeds at high speed etc ?

Also what about using different makes together etc does it matter ?

I use a range of 16GB and 32GB lexars at 633 write speed' with regards to file sizes would i be better off getting a pair of 64GB ones.

Thanks for any help :)

Hi all,

On Friday I picked up my brandnew and lovely X100F in silver. However, yesterday I realized that a milkymay of dust is trapped behind the front lense.

When I hold a flashlight against the lense in a specific angle, even more smaller dust particles become visible. Hope this is an isolated issue!

I know there is a significant price difference, BUT for the ultimate fixed lens mirrorless, the Sony RX1R II packs some serious stuff!

Sony RX1R II benefits in the blue corner
  1. Full frame
  2. 42MPx
  3. 35mm f2 Zeiss lens (f2 on FF is like f1.4 on APS-C)
  4. Tilting LCD
  5. 14bit uncompressed raw
  6. 29mins HD video recording with electronic stabilization
  7. Variable low pass filter
against in the green corner:

Fujifilm X100F benefits
  1. Electronic shutter to 1/32,000 sec
  2. Hybrid VF
  3. Lens shutter with high flash sync
  4. Builtin flash
  5. Muti film sims, inc. Acros and CC
  6. Nicer controls (IMHO)
  7. Slightly smaller
  8. Wide/Tele converters
  9. Silver or black
So if your fairy God Mother said, "I'll buy you either one", which would you choose?

I picked up a few native lenses recently after being pretty much exclusively adapted lenses for years and I have to admit that I have enjoyed them (an 18/2 and 27/2.8) immensely. But, I'm not sure I buy the notion that native lenses lenses are ALWAYS going to be superior when it comes to image quality. Native lenses have so much going for them and I can't complain about the IQ of the ones I have. The XF 27 is extraordinarily sharp and the rendering of the XF 18 is lovely. That said, I think I have a few adapted lenses that I would put at least within spittin' distance of the native lenses I have used.

I think my Nikkor-O 35/2 is what keeps me from buying the 35/2 (although I may pick up another 35/1.4 at some point).
