I went out to the Lake Merritt Garden Center here in Oakland to shoot some more plants and flowers, and found this guy walking around the grounds. His owner showed up next, they were out for a walk I guess. Pretty awesome lens...

Apparently fujifilm prices in canada are going up once again, in May some time. This comes from a local fujifilm dealer. Some of the less expensive primes will be going up about $50, while larger, more expensive units such as the 50-140 and 100-400 as much as $200. No idea on X bodies. I am not sure if prices are going up anywhere else, or if it is just canada that gets to have this pleasure.

I have an X-T1 and enjoy using legacy lenses. It wasn't until I was watching a movie about a french videographer who filmed in colour but viewed the scene in B&W on his camera that I realised if I could do this in my manual focus setup I would be able to nail focus a tad better. Low and behold you can. I now view my image in B&W which allows the red marching ants of focus to stand out, whilst still actually taking the image in RAW.
I know a lot of others will have already worked this out, but I am obviously slow to this setup :(
I posted this as I am sure there are others like me that will find this tip helpful.
Cheers!

[​IMG]House Reflection by Andy Mulhearn, on Flickr

Out of interest, I've seen threads at DPReview where the Fuji OOC Jpegs have been criticised. This was shot RAW+Fine and the only reason I didn't use the camera jpeg was that, would you believe, it got the white balance spot on. Which meant the shot lost all of the golden hour glow...

Hi all,

Any members from Belfast or in the Northern Ireland area? I am most likely coming out for a business trip to Belfast and I was hoping to take a few extra days and get some photography done as well. I have never been to Ireland and my wife may accompany me. The majority of the time I will have to work during the day. Any suggestions on place to go and visit? I would love to go to some nice coastal areas but I am not going to have any transportation while I am working. Not sure about hiring a car. Any suggestions would greatly appreciated. My wife and I both shoot with Fuji cameras.

Thanks,
Alan

I have an XT1. When looking at tutorials to set up the quick menu I have noticed that the first button should say BASE but mine says DR100 and the third button also says this. Where has my BASE button gone. What have I done wrong to get two buttons to say the same.

This tuesday I was returning home late when I noticed the circumstances could be right for a nice sunset. After quickly changing shoes, checking my camera bag and grabbing my tripod, I went to the location I scouted a few weeks ago. On the way I came across this puddle, which was even better! Hope you like it too!

Hi there, I'm a week into my ownership of an x100f and am loving it, however as I'm new to Fujifilm I'm probably going to ask a few silly questions! In the OVF there was a small screen in the bottom right hand corner which displayed the film simulation/ electronic view; I've somehow managed to make it disappear?!
Any ideas how to get it back?
Thanks in advance

Given that the graphite options are very much to do with the 'look' of the camera, why only one graphite lens, the 23f2? I take it that a limited production run in proportion to the run of graphite cameras would not make economic sense?

Just stumbled across this free online photography course by Marc Levoy (former Stanford professor).

It's based on a course he started giving in 2009, but has been updated ever since. This is a version he supposedly gave last year to Google employees ( to further stir their enormous creativity, I guess :cool:).

Digital Photography

The schedule is from last year, starting March 21. So if you start taking the course now, the schedule kind of matches.

Course schedule - Digital Photography

I'll try to take the course as it's supposed to be done on a weekly basis.

If anyone's interested, we could start a group, take the assignments and share our pictures here? Might be fun!

i should have paid more attention to the sales clerk when she answered my battery question.
what i did hear was that the new 126s battery was backwards compatible...what i missed was if the old 126 battery could be used in the new t20 body?
if you answer me i promise to pay better attention this time round...

since the xt2 can shoot raw in iso 100 mode is there any benefit to using this in terms of image quality (similar to the iso 64 mode on a d810 for example) or is it only of benefit to achieve longer exposures or wider apertures in bright light?

edit: didn't realize question asked and answered here: What is the benefit of the ISO L option for the X-T2?

Hi Guys,

Newbie here so be nice ! I have had my X-T2 for two weeks now and I love it. However I am finding it tends to shoot under exposed. Is that just me or is it a setting or something I am doing. Any advice gratefully received.

Hi all,

I'm very satisfied with my 18-55 lens, but I'm looking to complement it with either a 14mm OR a 55-200 telezoom (I don't have the funds for both).

I'm in doubt which kind of lens would serve me best though. I'm leaning towards the 55-200, because besides giving good reach for daily situations, I can still take great nature pictures with it. On the other hand, the 14mm will probably be very welcome with landscapes, architecture and city photography. I'm still open for the 10-24 as well.

My exif data doesn't tell me much sadly. I usually shoot either at 18mm or at 55m, not much in between (which sort of eliminates the 35mm f2).

Thanks for any input or experiences that you might have!

Hi,

Sorry about the title, I meant to type 35...

I just got my new XF35mm F2 ...

I was aware of the "distortion" people were talking about... But is this normal?
I thought for JPEG's the camera (I use XT20) is supposed to correct it.

Appreciate your help.

I'm very much enjoying the new approach to my 'everyday things' style of personal photography. It's nothing serious, just a documentary of what I can capture during normal day to day run of things.
I love the simplicity of the square format to frame within.

[​IMG]

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) will release free firmware updates for the FUJIFILM X-Pro2("X-Pro2") and FUJIFILM X-T2 ("X-T2") double flagship models of the X Series of mirrorless digital cameras. The first one is due in late March and the second will be due late May 2017, reflecting users' requests for improving operability and adding new functions. Applying the firmware updates will add new functions such as "Voice Memo" and "Copyright Information", and dramatically improve operability in autofocus, video recording and viewfinder handling.

X-T2 version 2.00 & X-Pro2 version 3.00 - due late March 2017
  • 1. Shooting RAW in Bracketing and Advanced Filters
    The update enables you to use the RAW format when shooting not only in AE Bracketing but also in other Bracketing modes (ISO, Dynamic Range, White Balance, Film Simulaitons) and also in Advanced Filter modes.
  • 2. Extended ISO 125 and 160 selectable
    The update adds ISO125 and ISO160 to extended ISO levels available.
  • 3. Programmable long exposure of up to 15 minutes
    Long exposure in the T mode currently goes only up to 30 seconds. The update will allow users to extend it up to 15 minutes.
  • 4. ON/OFF for 1/3-step shutter speed adjustment (X-T2 only - already in X-Pro2)
    The update allows you to turn off the Command Dial's function to adjust shutter speed by 1/3 steps in order to prevent unintended adjustments.
  • 5. Full-range ISO adjustments with the Command Dial (X-T2 only)
    With the update, set the ISO "A" position to "Command" to adjust ISO sensitivity across the full range, including extended ISOs, with the Front Command Dial.
  • 6. "AUTO" setting added for the minimum shutter speed in the ISO Auto setting
    The update adds an AUTO option for the minimum shutter speed in the ISO Auto setting, that allows the camera to automatically define the minimum shutter speed according to the focal length of the lens attached.
  • 7. Faster "Face Detection AF"
    The update enables the use of Phase Detection AF for faster performance in Face Detection AF.
  • 8. Improved in-focus indication in the AF-C mode
    The update reduces focus hunting in the AF-C mode, making it easier to track a subject.
  • 9. Addition of a smaller Focus Point size in Single Point AF
    The update adds a smaller Focus Point size in Single Point AF, bringing the total number of available sizes to six. The new smallest size facilitates pin-point focusing.
  • 10. Addition of "AF Point Display" (X-Pro2 only - already on X-T2)
    With the update, you can choose to have AF Points constantly displayed in Zone AF and Wide / Tracking AF, making it easier to track a subject.
  • 11. Addition of "AF-C Custom Setting" (X-Pro2 only - already on X-T2)
    The update adds "AF-C Custom Setting" for specifying focus-tracking characteristics. Choose from five presets according to your subject's type of movements.
  • 12. Addition of "Portrait / Landscape AF Mode Switching" (X-T2 only)
    The update allows you to specify separate AF mode and AF point settings for portrait orientation and landscape orientation.
  • 13. Change of focus frame position while enlarging it
    The update allows you to move the position of focus frame while enlarging it in Single Point in the AF-S mode or in the Manual Focus
  • 14. Activation of the Eye Sensor in video recording (X-T2 only)
    The update allows you to use the Eye Sensor during video recording to automatically switch between EVF and LCD.
  • 15. Change of ISO sensitivity during video recording (X-T2 only)
    The update allows you to change ISO setting during video recording.
  • 16. Re-autofocusing in video recording
    With the update, half-press the Shutter Release button or press the button assigned to "AF-ON" function during video recording to re-do autofocusing.
  • 17. Display live histogram during video recording (X-T2 only)
    The update allows you to display a live histogram during video recording.
  • 18. Optimization of external microphone's input level (X-T2 only)
    The update optimizes external microphone's input level (lower limit revised from -12dB to 20dB) to reduce white noise when an external microphone with preamp is connected.
  • 19. Addition of "Eye Sensor + LCD Image Display" in the View Mode
    The update gives the "Eye Sensor + LCD Image Display" option in the View Mode that allows you to shoot through the viewfinder and check images on the LCD, just as you would with an SLR.
  • 20. Shorter EVF display time-lag (X-Pro2 only - already in X-T2)
    The update shortens EVF's display time-lag in the AF-C mode so that you will not miss a photo opportunity.
  • 21. Constant "Dual" mode display (X-T2 only)
    With the update, the small window in the Dual mode stays on even when you half-press the shutter release button.
  • 22. Automatic vertical GUI for LCD (X-T2 only)
    With the update, when you hold the camera in the portrait orientation, the camera will automatically display the GUI on the LCD in the same orientation.
  • 23. Name Custom Settings
    The update allows you to assign a specific name to Custom Settings 1 - 7.
  • 24. Copyright information in EXIF data
    The update allows you to register the photographer's name and the copyright holder's name in advance so that the camera automatically adds the information to EXIF data for each image.
  • 25. Voice Memo function
    The update enable you to record 30-second "Voice Memo" clips in the Playback mode.
  • 26. Extended AE Bracketing
    The update extends AE Bracketing from the current 3 frames +/-2EV to up to 9 frames +/-3EV.
  • 27. Addition of "Shoot Without Card" mode
    With the update, you can have the "Shoot Without Card" mode turned OFF so that the camera can not shoot when there is no SD card inserted.
X-T2 version 2.10 & X-Pro2 version 3.10 - late May 2017
  • 28. Support for computer tethering via Wi-Fi (X-T2 only)
    The update adds support for computer tethering via Wi-Fi.
  • 29. Addition of "All" AF mode (X-T2 only)
    With the update, select "All" in the AF mode so that you can select the AF mode and Focus Area size by only using the Command Dial.
  • 30. Function extension for "Shutter AF" and "Shutter AE" (X-T2 only)
    With the update, you can specify different settings for AF-S and AF-C in "Shutter AF" and for AF-S / MF and AF-C in "Shutter AE."
  • 31. Addition of "-6" and "-7" to EVF's brightness setting
    Additional options of "-6" and "-7" to the "EVF Brightness" setting so that, even in an extremely low-light condition, the brightness of the EVF does not distract you from shooting.
  • 32. Switchover of the main and sub displays in the Dual Display mode (X-T2 only)
    The update allows you to switch between the main and sub displays in the Dual Display mode.
  • 33. Function assignment to the Rear Command Dial
    With the update, you can assign a specific function to be activated when the Rear Command Dial is pressed.
