I have looked at some online pre-reviews of the new model, but could not find a clear answer: Will the OVF "zoom" like the one on the XP--1 does when a short zoom, like the 18-55 is mounted?
I seem to have lost the focus box in the view finder. I can hear the focus beep confirmation but no box. If I select the box to resize it or move it it is there. On the LSD it is normal and working. I did do a firmware update but don't remember if it occurred then as I was testing out a new lens.
Hi Guys..going through the set up of my new x-30..how do I display the histogram on the LCD and viefinder when in shooting mode?
What are your users experience with the X T1 FW4.30
Recently I started having problems with changing the view mode from LCD to eye sensor. When I look through the viewfinder I am seeing the lens. I turn it off and on , push the view mode button , and no change. Anyone else have this problem?
i recently try a nikon 20mm f3,5 on my XE2 but with f3,5 , i could hardly set focus because through the viewfinder it's very dark......so the "bright" idea is to go to menu and set viewfinder brigthness at +2 or 3
so now manual focusing would be easier
that was "trick of the day !"
I'm a 5 day owner of an XT-10, love the camera. I've been spending lots of time with the menus and related settings to customize it for my own use. I am baffled with the Q menu system, yes I understand what it does just can't get settings to stay in place. For excample I try to set Film Simulation to Sepia in C1 so far so good, but when I return to Base Sepia is in place and not Std. With that said are there are sources where I can find an explanation. I do have a copy of Rico Pfirstinger's Rocky Nook book on the X-10 that does shed light on the Q menu, but I'm missing something.
By the way Macmodus great job on that excel spreadsheet.
Probably like a lot of other enthusiasts I found I was'nt going out shooting because I could'nt be bothered with carting around a DSLR and lenses..so after visiting a lot of you tube reviews I've purchased an x-30, low price on Amazon, (would love an x pro-2) which arrived today, just waiting for battery to charge then I'm off out shooting!
Hope to chat with you all from time to time

i was asked by my friend who has anew Fuji XT1 as to how to get the flash to operate. I know this issue has come up a number of times and I have gone through both this forum and DP review looking for an answer. I even read the manual and the new editions manual. I still can't get the flash to fire on my XT1 and neither can she. I have the camera set up as described in the manuals and the forums:
1. Mechanical shutter
2. Sound and flash off is off so I have full sound on the camera (old silent mode)
3. Camera is on single shot on the drive dial
4. Flash is correctly situated.
5. fLash head is in the upright position
6. I can access the flash menu in both Q menu and menu 4
I have turned the camera on and off, I have turned off and removed the flash, turned on and reattached the flash. I have tried each of the different flash menus and tried shooting in P mode. I have tried each of the three metering modes. My friend has tried all of these strategies too. The one thing that is interesting is that I don't get a flash symbol. Each time I take a shot the flash fails to fire.
Clearly we are both missing something as it can't happen with two different bodies and two different flash units. I can't find an answer in old forum posts. Can someone please point me in the right direction as my friend is getting very frustrated and I don't want something to beat me.
Thanks in advance, jane
If anyone is interested...
I'm writing about my lust/hate/love affair with the X-Pro1 on my blog!
My Love Affair with the Fujifilm X-Pro1
As well as this story, there's many shots taken with the X-Pro1 and some with the XT1.
Please note that my blog features NO donate links, or buy prints links or buy from advertising partners links! It's simply a labour of love - a bit like using the X-Pro1 can be!!
Is there a way in X-E2/FW4 of using AF-C (either mode) to track the subject but allow the AE adjust itself as it tracks it? I seems to me that half-pressing the shutter (in order to track the subject) locks the exposure, and I can't figure out how not to lock the AE but still be able to track the subject using AF-C.
I like to visit this place when I can. It's in the Minneapolis area (Minnetonka, I believe), and is a beautiful old house on a nice bit of land. The sun was shining for a bit this weekend, which has been a rare site this winter. Taken with an X-T1 and XF 16-55/2.8 lens.
X-T1, 14mm, 1/80sec, f/2.8, ISO3200
I really do like reflections.
Doh, I just bought an X-E2 from the bay. Put a bid in just north of lowball and surprisingly, won it. Somewhat conflicted, since I have a perfectly usable X-E1. But I was compelled by the recent upgrade goodness that's been discussed so much.
I think that I'll dedicate the X-E1 to legacy lenses, as I'd intended when I bought it, and use the impulsively collected X mount glass for the 2 (Zeiss 32, Fuji 60, and Fuji 18-55).
GAS attack or reasonable? You decide.
Good to see y'all. John
Thinking about printing. Mostly thinking that I haven't been doing it and I'd like something to hang on my wall as well as a handy non-screen way to check out whether I really like a shot. Casual looks here and there can sometimes tell you more about whether you like A vs. B than an intense moment of on-screen scrutiny will? Don't know... but seems to have some merit. Bear in mind I'm not thinking I'd be printing "art prints", but for everyday and workflow... seems there might be a point to those who suggest including printmaking in the creative process.
Maybe that's rationalization? Sure. Fact that there's not a section of these forums focused on printmaking might be suggesting I should think again. Fact is, there are a fair number of folks dead set against home printing. I've started out that way... generally 'cause of all those bad experiences with ink jets. "Been there, done that... not going there." Whose experience with these critters back before office lasers dropped in price... didn't run from foul to worse sufficient to swear off the beasts? Frankly... don't know the person. But it's been what... 20 years or more? Okay.
So I'm reading that's changed... but wondering, "Really? Didn't they say that back in the 1990's, too?" Interesting that Canon has a rep for "it just works" while Epson... not so much. But it brings other issues to mind:
1) How hard is it to calibrate the screen?
2) Do we calibrate the printer, too? or is that the same thing?
3) And is this the sort of exercise we should be doing anyway before shipping images off to print by third parties?
So maybe the squeeze is worth it no matter what. Curious what others think... or whether they're done thinking and quit the whole idea of printing and just use labs. If that's the case... then doesn't the calibration bit still matter? Hmmmm. Your thoughts appreciated.
Which one is the best option right now? After the firmware release for xe2, these all 3 looks pretty similar on paper. So, which should I buy considering ergonomics, ease of use etc.?
I realized that the bank at the back of my mum's house could be a reasonably consistent if not entirely scientific place to compare what different lenses do on the bokeh front. The photos were taken on 4 different days within a yard or so of each other, at their widest aperture and MFD. All focally reduced but due to M42Fuji adapter incompatibilities the Yashinon is on m43, so is at 70 rather than 50. In order of width:
Yashica ML 28/2.8
Yashinon DX 50/1.7
I guess I've drawn some conclusions from doing this, but I won't bore you all with them. Yet.
I have an XE1 which I enjoy using. However, it appears to me that the color balance on the lcd if off because it appears more yellow than the actual pictures do when processed and displayed on my imac screen. I first thought the pictures themselves were to yellow when compared to the lcd of my other cameras, Pentax, Nikon and Olympus, but when loaded on the imac, they are just fine.
Is there some to check or adjust the white balance or color of the lcd of the camera?
I am new to this forum, and unfortunately I would like to start directly with a problem.
I borrowed a X100s from a friend of mine and was going to test it before the delivery of my brand new X-E2. Now I have this problem (and I have seen a few posts about this subject) that when I turn the camera on it freezes directly and the on/off button doesn't work anymore. Removing the battery switches off the camera, but when I insert the battery I have the same problem. When I turn on the camera (after removal of the battery) and I press the Play button, I can enter the Play menu and everything works OK, but when I try to go to the photo-mode, same problem again. This also is the case when I turn on the camera (after removal of the battery) and press the 'DISP/Back' button, then I can enter the firmware update menu.
As said, I've seen a few posts on this matter, but there was no follow up how the story ended. I feel quite bad about this, so I would really appreciate some information/help.
Thank you from a desperate new forum member
Has anybody tested to connect with USB cable to pc after upgrade to latest firmware on X-E2 ?
My camera can't be found in WIN7, or WIN10.
I have also tried to connect to another computer.
Camera acts as it not connected to pc. But if I remove the USB cable it hangs.
Brand new X Shooter here.. Green as they come. In my quest to find the Camera that's right for me I was able to use an X-T1 with XF18-55 and Rokinon 12mm for a few weeks. It was a great experience, and I really started to fall in love with the Fuji System. I will be purchasing Fuji gear soon for sure..
Fairly hurried and hand-held, set at 800 ISO and f/1.4 or f/2 aperture priority. Difficult to set up tripod and make careful exposure adjustments when you're in strolling crowds with your nearest and dearest who haven't brought their cameras along. Tried to take advantage of f/1.4 for both lenses but depth of field considerations made it more complex than I'd thought. Love these wide apertures on the primes but still waiting to try out the 16-55mm...

Just a thought - do they allow tripods on bridges and along the South Bank? I'm asking because back in 1997 I got told to take one down while doing tourist-type shots of Darling Harbour in Sydney "because the pics could be sold as postcards"...
And so I have searched and read some older posts about dealing with Henry's, the gray market etc.
Bottomline is that i preordered the XP2 from Henry's for $1358 US...my understanding is that this will come with a two year Fuji warranty, the first year I can get serviced in the US and the second year, serviced in Canada..The camera is selling in the US for $1699. I would be getting it for $350 less...am I missing anything, is there a cost benefit analysis that I am not considering. Do I cancel the order with Henry's and get from a local camera shop for piece of mind or do I save $350 and be smart???? Everything I have read indicates that I will be ok but just one last word of encouragement from someone that KNOWS would be appreciated...
I'm curious about your idea of '3d pop'? Please let your images speak.
Here's one from the weekend (XF35firstname.lastname@example.org):
Next please ...
It looks as though the folks at DPReview are impressed by the improved video performance:
Ready for its close-up: X-Pro2 defines a new era of video for Fujifilm
hi i have been thinking about this matter since the xpro2 dropped a few weeks back and i was thinking, as many on this forum seem to be thinking.. that i wish fuji would hurry up and deliver the new stock so i can "upgrade" quickly.. mostly... because the X-Trans™* CMOS III sensor & X Processor Pro (and "improved" AF and faster, cleaner ISO) .. does look to be the business.
however.. and call me controversial.. i'm not so cool about the xpro2 not having an articulated viewing screen.. not going to lie i was a little disappointed to learn this at the launch and it has been playing on my mind.
since using xm1... a lot... i'm finding the screen to be a god send especially for framing those low and high shots blah blah blah... its just ultra convenient not to have to stick your nose on the back of the camera all the time... and a moving screen has grown into a must have feature afaik... i can no longer live without one.
over the weekend ... out and about with my beloved x-m1... i was mulling over buying the xpro2 again blah blah blah and in a bolt of clear consciousness decided to make a firm decision and forget about upgrading anytime soon.
i love that my x-m1 is so small, cheap and light weight.... stick an xf 23mm lens on an xm1 and that is the perfect x camera afaik.
having said that i still fancy that cmos 3 sensor and the nu processor... so.. in my dreams i would be looking forward to fuji launching an x-m1(2)... but truth is i will take a box brownie with a cmos 3 + processor pro and an articulated LED screen in it.
question: has anyone heard any rumours about a forthcoming x series camera with a cmos 3 and an articulated screen?
