Is it me being stupid or have they now completely done away with the silent mode option?
I know it can still be turned off in each individual menu but it was really convenient being able to choose it through the Q menu.
Am i going mad?
I was out shooting this weekend with my X100t, and noticed some odd behavior. With Auto ISO set, shooting aperture priority, I expect the camera to lower the shutter speed below the minimum when conditions demand it. But it did some weird stuff:
1. In very dark conditions, wide open at f/2, the camera would not go slower than 1/50 sec shutter speed no matter what I did. It was at ISO 3200, and the minimum shutter was 1/125 -- again, I expect the camera to choose a slower speed to maintain proper exposure, which it did, but it stopped doing so at 1/50. Changing the exposure compensation dial had no effect - the shutter stayed at 1/50 (and the photo was three stops underexposed). Switching to manual fixed it.
2. Same thing happened this morning, but with the max ISO at 800 and the aperture at f/16 to get a sun star, the camera chose 1/50 sec shutter, and underexposed by three or four stops. I didn't notice until I downloaded the raw files.
In every case, the LCD and the EVF showed the proper exposure -- but the camera would not shoot the proper exposure.
Any ideas? Is there a setting that I can't find that tries to maintain a hand-holdable shutter speed? I can easily recreate the issue sitting here at my desk.
Here's the photo from this morning -- again, it looked fine in the EVF:
There are so many things that are marvelous about Manhattan, and any discussion would have to include it's skyscrapers. From my recent trip up, I offer three I'm pretty happy with. I hope you will like them.
The high skyline and Chrysler Building were done with the Fuji 23mm 1.4 R. The Empire State Building from Bryant Park was done with the Zeiss 32mm 1.8.
Having timed things really badly with selling my X-T1 and ordering the X-T2, I've been having a lot of fun with my X70. I miss having a viewfinder, but I'm finding the tilting screen is letting me get shots from angles I'd never attempt with a bigger camera. There's a lot to be said for a relatively tiny camera that can be easily slipped into a pocket...
I've also started having a bit of a play with Aurora HDR Pro (pretty quick for me, it's only taken since last November)...
Despite appearances, this narrow-gauge engine runs on the Brecon Mountain Railway in South Wales.
 Dithered about it for too long....
Sad day. But when will the new model be announced? And more importantly, when will retailers start to heavily discount the x100T?

I took photos using X-T2 in a football game last night. I notice when I took with high ISO (1600 & 3200), the JPG and RAF files have 5 dark across the longer dimension (vertical lines in portrait & horizontal lines in landscape). You can see from the example file here - pay attention to the grass surface. Is there something wrong with the sensor?
I was at a ploughing and country show yesterday, good weather and interesting event with horses pulling ploughs as well as some old steam units.
There were also some really interesting characters at the event so a fun time trying to capture elements of the event and some of the people.
I know there has been comments earlier about an x100T update (or lack thereof), but I am happy with what the X100T offers as is. That said, why can't Fuji just give us that in love feeling again with a tiny update with Acros! I will continue to buy their new products as the technology improves, but in the meantime, can I play with Acros on my X100T?
I've recently upped my game equipment-wise, and not coincidentally, sold my house. What are folks doing for insurance?
Safe to say given the responses to a couple of my threads, I'm going with the 16-55 2.8.
Maybe the 18mm f2 too?
I love the auto focus - it's terrific- but, I feel TOO fast for cinematic like focus pulls when one operator is shooting moving picture work. It's a dead giveaway it's on auto with one operator.
I would like to make a feature request in a firmware update for two additional slower modes for continuous auto focusing:
Just "slower" and "slowest"
or maybe "cine", and thin slowest called something like "slow".
The current snappy pull is a dead giveaway and does not look like a typical focus pull for a filmmaker.
Adding these options would be a huge benefit to single-person run and gun operators who shoot short film, documentary etc,
and automagically also enable the director/operator to adjust framing on the fly a bit to better ensure the pull locks onto the intended target . . . .
Adding this feature plus FLOG to the SD card (PLEASE try to keep it 4:2:2!) would make the X-T2 a KILLER machine.
LOVING the XT2 so far.
I've bought an extremely well used Xt1 for an extended extremely low price, just for the fun of having one (again).
The previous owner is a professional portrait photographer and this xt1 is his main workhorse. Having scare all over but there's no technical damage so everything is in good working order.... except....the rubber body cover.
It's in really bad shape! It lost its profile texture, stretches/shrinking in corners and adhesive starting to let go or deteriorates.
So I started to peel everything off and clean up the body and hope I could fix it myself.
But unfortunately it doesn't fit anymore so there's no way I could do this myself. Contacted Fuji service center Germany and they offer to stick new rubber for free, very generous of course but I then my Xt1 will leave the house for minimum 6 weeks, not acceptable LoL
Hi everyone, hope you're all good this fine day.
I've heard a lot about how the most recent update for the xe2 has pretty much changed it into an xt10 in rangefinder form.
In practical terms what does that actually mean? Do all the buttons function as they did before? What has really changed to make people say it's now to all intents and purposes an xt10?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Yesterday I've spent the whole morning looking for picturesque everyday scenes on the streets of Madrid. Fortunately I found interesting scenes to shoot: pedestrians, homeless, jugglers or mime street artists have defined the following photographic serie.
I used the XT-1 + XF35mm f/1.4 R. I am always happy with this combo, enough for street photography. Perhaps the 23mm would be useful too, but I don't have it and it's always uncomfortable to change lenses while walking.
Please, come check out my site on the following link, thanks!: www.josecarpin.com
A few weeks ago my wife and I went to Borrego Springs and Joshua Tree National Park to do some nightscapes, here are the results with a quick shot before sunset.
Around Borrego Springs are a large number of metal sculptures, a widespread public art exhibit. Some bighorn sheep at sunset.

Thought you guys would like to see some pit lane shots from the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma from last weekend.

Somehow I overwrote the box where the q menu label for C1 - C7 appear and I can't get it back. Is there a reset or something to restore the labels? Thanks.
I found the solution. Edit the box and select SELECT CUSTOM SETTING. Duh.
can anyone recommend a videos/tutorials of an iPad (Pro) and LR mobile- centric workflow? I like to travel light and end up doing most of my PP on the iPad, and now with the raw support, I need/want to change up my habits and would like to squeeze the most out gorgeous X-T2 files and iPad
I took this shot at the end of a session of senior portraits. I just threw the hood on and shot it very quickly for the fun of it. It came out as one of my favorite shots from the whole shoot. Her's too!
Has anyone used the cactus RF60 Flashes triggered with the v6ii on fujifilm. Will I get HSS? Are they reliable? I'm thinking of getting a couple for some outdoor portraits. I'm sick of waiting for nissin and fujifilm ef-x500 are expensive and only offer optical triggered plus you need a flash on the camera and I don't want that.
I tried to take some stealth pics leaving the camera on a table while having a coffee.
Terrible lag made it near impossible.
Have any you tried this with better results?
Tried it twice. Once with 18-135 and once with the 18mm.
Thanks in advance.
While I was setting up for this shot at sunset, last week, I spotted a couple of guests smoking those vape things, so I recruited them to help me get something a wee bit different for the bride. The poor souls were wheezing like old men by the end as I kept asking them to keep 'the fog' coming, but they were keen to help out and everyone was happy with the results.
X-T1 with XF16-55mm f2.8 and 16mm wide-open. OCF was two YN560 III's, one as a back light used bare but zoomed to 50mm, the key light was used with a Flashdisc.
Shot more cats today with my XE2 and 56 1.2
Btw this isn't some specially trained cat, just a regular cat
Taken with the 100-400 lens. This camera is way faster than the X-T1, not only in the autofocus but in bracketing. This is important to me as I often bracket exposures. With the X-T1 the lag between the 3 shots was so long that the bird often moved or even flew away before the third shot. With the X-T2 this no longer happens.
