Last year I noticed with the X-T1 and the 23mm lens, that many of the pictures that I shot at 1/125th of a second or slower just weren't sharp. At first I thought it was the lens, but then ran a few tests - using the monopod and tripod, and determined that it must be me, that I wan't holding the camera steady enough, although I thought that 1/125th should be way fast enough not to have any camera shake affect the results. Fast forward to today - shooting the X-T2 over the weekend at an event - choral group in a hallway - using the 16 - most shots at 1.4 to 2.0 with shutter speed 1/125th. Again, zoomed in to 100 percent there is a definite lack of sharpness ... those shots at 1/160th or faster are crisp. Again, I ran some tests with monopod, and could get fairly clear shots even at 1/15th .... so, another lesson learned this late in life :) Note - many of the shots that were obviously not sharp were held arm out using the LCD ... many of those that I had better results with were eye to the EVF and arm braced. I was a bit surprised given that the 16 is much smaller/lighter than the 23.

I can connect without problem between my Android mobile phone or tablet and the camera, but if I change the default shooting settings I just can shoot only one pics and a message "processing" appears in the window of my app, the problem goes if I reset the camera, but when I change again from JPG to RAW the problem returns. Another thing I discovered is if I change in camera remote to shoot a movie and return to shoot a pic I can but only ones and the message return, any advice will be much appreciate, thanks

I wandered around the National Rhododendron Gardens on the weekend. These are located in Richard_R's backyard. We're very fortunate here in Melbourne, Australia to have so many beautiful gardens available for us to enjoy all year round.

Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have the pleasure to travel to Japan at the end of next week. A bit more than 3 weeks total, 10 days in Tokyo, 4 days to travel from Tokyo to Osaka and 9 days touring with a group (Osaka, Hiroshima, Kyoto, Hakone).

I am looking for tips, what to visit during 4 days of travel from Tokyo to Osaka and what to look for in Tokyo. I love to visit galleries, exhibitions and interesting places which are a little bit off the beaten path. Preferably walking a lot from gallery to gallery, this is my method to discover a city.

I have been in Asia a lot, but this is the first time in Japan.

So, I am kindly asking for your suggestions and I wonder where you will guide me to ... :)

Best regards,

Thomas.

X-Pro2 fliying into the Alps. Flight to the highest (2962m) mountain in Germany, directly at the Austrian border. There are many higher mountains in the Alps, but I did forget my Austrian and Swiss charts at home, grrrrrr, so only a short trip into the Alps as far as my german charts allowed.

I have only had this lens for a couple of weeks, but what a sharp, sharp, lens. Taken around mid day with the 90mm f2 at f5.6, 1/900 ISO200, XT2 processed in LR with velvia profile no other saturation.

Hello,

For those of you who have both the X-T1 and X-T2 and have had their Nissin i40 FW recently updated I would like to know if the 'hidden' HSS is still functioning on the X-T1.

My i40 has not been updated and I would prefer not to lose the HSS ability on the X-T1.
For me this is more important than gaining TTL on the X-T2. I can still use it as a slave on the X-T2 and thats fine with me.

If anyone has received their updated i40 and has checked out HSS on the X-T1 would you please share your findings. Truly much appreciated!

Sept. 25th, I was shooting my third or fourth wedding with the XT-2. About 15 images during a first look have write errors on both cards (I shot RAF only with one card as backup). I used a SanDisk Extreme 64 GB 90 mb/s in slot one with a SanDisk Extreme Pro 128 GB 95 MB/s in slot two. Rescue Pro showed these results from the card one. Shot single point AF-S, 23mm 1.4, ES+MS, Auto shutter speed using exposure compensation, and of course firmware version 1.00. I'm calling Fujifilm right now as I believe it's a camera issue and not a card issue. Changed out cards as soon as I saw the errors in camera review, but saw no errors come up as I was actively shooting.

Has anyone else encountered errors like this with their XT-2 yet?

Hi

I have just acquired an XP2 and am just getting to grips with the complexities of this camera. Might take some time I might add !

Anyway, I do not have any Fuji lenses at the moment but have a few bits of old MF glass and a M42-FX adapter so thought I would try out a Helios lens on this body on my favourite test target, Tilly the dog; see below.

This is clearly not the best image in the World, she is a Brittany Spaniel and never keeps still making MF tricky, but I am delighted with the focusing aids and general IQ from this body.

I still have quite a lot of Nikon kit and will keep D7200, D5100 and D3100 bodies and plenty of glass for action/wildlife and various other reasons but I am definitely loving the little Fuji XP2 and look forward to using this system for street/travel photography etc..

If anyone is looking for an excellent Arca-Swiss plate for their XT-2 I can recommenced this one. It's a bit pricey but it came with my Kirks ball-head and I never used it so it was just sitting in the bottom of my bag. Anyway, it is built like a tank, fits perfectly, does not block the batter door nor the flip up screen and well, it a Kirks so it is probably made of battleship steel.

Brought my 1 week old Fuji X-T2 to our camping/hiking trip in Mount Assiniboine and it performed as expected.
Quick AF, great colors, fantastic ergonomics although I noticed that the start-up time can be finicky at times as the EVF wouldn't start after a couple of seconds.
I was up there for only 48 hours as I had to cut my trip short due to busy work schedule but I tried to make the most of it and got one of the shots that I've always wanted to do.
Lenses I brought with me was the XC 16-50 and the Samyang 12mm.
I chose this setup instead of the 18-55 as I wanted to save weight and space as the 16-50 was able to provide me 24-75mm 35mm equivalent focal length.

Hi guys, just wondering if there's something wrong with my X-T1 and/or the kit lens.

Two issues I have with it:

1. Aperture blade noise - seems very pronounced. You can hear it throughout the video I've included below and also at the end when I bring the camera closer to the mic.

2. LCD image stutter when autofocusing sometimes. You can see it on the 3rd autofocus attempt and also lots of times afterwards in the video. It seems to me the LCD refresh rate cannot keep up with the quick AF hunting? Seems as if the LCD is "stuttering".

Video sample is here:

Dropbox - x-t1_autofocus.mp4

Do you think these two things are normal or should I return the camera?

Have you also experienced this with your X-T1?

Thanks,

Alex

Does the XE1 autocorrect the lens in RAW files on the XE1 and/or XE2?

I have set my X-T1 to Release/Focus Priority on day 1. I did notice a while back that camera could, actually, shoot an out of focus images. So today I went on a walk and squeezed a few completely blurry images. Came home and repeated again (see attached). Does anyone know and can explain what makes the camera think that it found focus? Is it me and my strong ESP affecting it? :) Thank you in advance!!

P.S. Sorry if it was already discussed!

Guys trying to get my head round a setting, on my xt2 I have auto ISO enabled, base 200, max 12800, shutter min 125, when I look through viewfinder or screen it displays ISO 12800 all the time even when the shutter is half pressed it never moves from 12800 (my xpro2 diplays the required ISO when half pressed) when I review the picture on my xt2 it shows the correct ISO I.e 200 or whatever, what does yours do please? Appreciate the help

Hello, thanks for letting me join this site and will be posting here a lot from now. I grew up in Buffalo,NY and decided after seeing some videos online about photography and seeing my Dad friend studio that I wanted to become one. I had plans on buying Nikon when I first got into photography a couple of months ago but bought a Fuji x-e1 and Tamron 45mm f1.8vc. Love the setup.

I have two suggestions for new lenses for the (excellent!) Fuji lineup.

First I'd love to see a 16mm f/2.8 (or f/2), WR lens. I'm sure the 1.4 is a great lens, but I want to keep my Fuji system as small and light as possible.

Second, I'd be the first in line to buy a 16mm shift lens. NOT a shift/tilt, as these are more expensive and in shooting architecture I almost never have occasion to use the tilt function on the 24mm tilt/shift lens I own. If I could get 10mm of shift with a Fuji-quality lens, I'd sell my Sony and the two shift lenses I already have.

Thanks for listening,
BAB
