I have an LG G4 phone. I tried linking it to my X-100T but the camera cannot find it even although the phone is set to discoverable.

Anyone got an idea how to fix it?

So I received my adaptor today. It's pretty well constructed, and isn't hidious or super noticeable when combined with lens and camera. As to using the Nikon lens with the Fuji X-e1, it was wonderful. The focusing was a little tricky, but I managed by taking my time rather than trying to snap away. On the body, the lens is noticeably the heavy point of the kit, you'll find your camera leaning downwards, but hey it's not bad at all! After all these old Nikkors are built like tanks! Anyways, image quality is great when you get to the sweet spot of the lens, and that's the thing about these lenses, when used properly they can give off a wonderful 'Nikon' feeling to your shots. After all I think these lenses are what made Nikon what it is. Here are some of the "eh" test shots from today, I'm still working on the few good ones!

Howdy, all!

So there's something which often comes up on this forum, and just as often garners vibrant discussion and passionate opinions, yet always seems to end with a variation on, "what do you think would work best for YOU??"

Lens suggestions. Whether it's "which lens should I buy", or "which lens should I bring along", or "which lens works best for [insert conditions, settings or subjects] there ALWAYS seems to be folks chiming in.

So, here's a variation of that. I'm not going to ask which lens I should use in a certain setting, or which TWO should I bring along, I am curious to hear which lenses people use for THEIR favorite settings.

Do you have a favorite lens for a favorite subject or setting? Or just a general fave? Why is it your favorite? If you were to leave the house, and could only bring ONE LENS, or ok how about TWO LENSES with you, what would you bring? What about THREE lenses? And, why those choices? Do you have a "wish list" for future lens acquisitions? What's on it? And, for the love of all creatures great and small... why?!?!

I have my own stuff to share here, but I figured it'd be nice to hear from you guys first...

Hello all,

I just picked up an X-T1 over the weekend. I upgraded from firmware 3.0 to 4.0 and noticed that CH and CL burst modes fire off 2 frames with a brief click. Is something wrong with the camera, has this happened to anyone else? This did not occur in firmware 3.0.

One more thing, in firmware 3.0 when i turned the LCD display information off it still showed the focus square which I preferred. In 4.0 the focus square no longer displays. Is there anyway to turn it back on?

I read several threads on various forums including this one regarding which card to use for the X Pro-1.
Most everyone regarded the SanDisc Extreme Pro as the best one with the limit being the ability of the XPro-1 buffer size. I shot a test run set on continuous shutter till the buffer filled up ( 12 cont. images ).

I timed the Delkin SD633X that was in the camera against a new SanDisk Extreme Pro group 10 (95mb/sec max). The time it took the buffer to empty; ie, to download all images into the card was identical for both cards @ 27 seconds. I assumed that the XPro-1 buffer was the limiter.

Then I installed a Lexar Professional 400X group 10 that I use in my Leica M9P and performed the same test. This time I got 22 images in the X Pro-1 and then the buffer slowed as the continuous shutter kept shooting. The download time for the Lexar was 10 seconds for 22 ++ images. That is 17 seconds faster than with the other two "high speed" cards.

In other words, with the Lexar, the buffer took 22++ images before slowing the download speed as opposed to only 12 images maximum with the other two cards. I had assumed that buffer size is fixed with the design of the camera and firmware, but apparently not.

If my test is any indication, there is something about the way a card stores the data that will affect not only download speed but buffer size as well.

Of the three cards, the Delkin was the priciest and the SanDisk was the least expensive. I am not a frequent continuous shooter. As a matter of fact, I am slow and deliberate. So, any SD card will work for me. But I thought this test was interesting and useful information.

Any comments would be appreciated concerning your own experience and testing, if any and knowledgeable information concerning the relationship between the cards and the buffer. o_O

While looking around at small bags for my X100T, I came across a few surplus shoulder bags for AK-47 magazines that seemed to have potential. Small, leather, broken in, and cheap. I also liked the fasteners used - almost "Billingham-ish." Of course, it's rugged as hell.

Turned out to be a pretty solid idea. When I cut out the dividers on the inside, I made enough room for the camera and my Moleskine notepad (inside of which are my press badge, backup SD card, pen, and a small LED flashlight.) Whenever I'm actually shooting, the camera comes out and stays out so the bag becomes a pretty sufficient drink carrier.

The side pockets worked out pretty well. The long one fits my Swiss Army knife perfectly. The other side holds 2-3 spare batteries without being deep enough that they get lost.

I thought about installing padding on the interior, but it would make things pretty tight. Instead, I just use useful things for padding. The most "extra space" is at the bottom, so I stuffed a folded up wool hat at the bottom along with a QuikClot bandage.

Here's a couple of quick pictures I snapped on the way out the door today.

I'm an amateur photographer, following behind husband's excellent photography, he's a digital media teacher, including film and video, and also does work on the side - mostly video though. He got the XT10 as a giveaway at a conference this week, and although it's not as great a fit for him (the body is not comfortable in his hands), it seems to have the potential to fill a lot of gaps for me, so I've taken it over from him :) It came with the 18-55 lens which is pretty great, and after spending a lot of yesterday poring over this and other forums for recommendations between the 50-230 and 55-200 lenses, I did end up settling on the 18-135:cool: Decided I need the stops more than the extra zoom. Definitely will be saving my pennies for some of those lovely primes next!

Other cameras we have (no particular order):
Nikon D60
Nikon D90
Nikon D800
Panasonic GH4
possibly Canon T5i if husband has brought any of the school cameras home to practice with
List of lenses for the above is far too long to list off the top of my head, especially for the Nikons.

Albums of some of our previous work (not particularly up to date):

Played around with some pet photography last night testing out moving objects in a low light situation, and very pleased with the performance so far. Still learning where all the buttons and controls are, in order to be able to get full capability from the camera. Fuji seems to have a very different logic behind how they lay everything out, but loving results so far.

Planning to take this and the GH4 out this weekend for some head to head competition!

Anyway, that's me, looking forward to learning more from this forum!

New 16-Lens Pocket-Sized Camera Aims To Kick Bulky DSLRs To The Curb

When shooting photos on the go, 16 lenses are far better than one.

That’s the premise behind the L16, a new fits-in-your-pocket multi-aperture camera that its maker—a well-funded Silicon Valley startup called Light—thinks is going to blow away DSLRs with expensive lenses...not to mention smartphones.

The new L16 camera, from Light.
Light unveiled the L16 today, offering it for pre-order at $1,299 but saying it plans on charging $1,699 when the camera ships in late summer of next year. The L16, Light promises, will offer great optical zoom, high-resolution, substantial low-light capabilities, and very fine after-the-fact depth-of-field controls, all without the need for add-on lenses or a multi-thousand-dollar body.

The Light L16
The idea for the L16 stems from what Light’s founders see as a huge gap in today’s photography market. On one hand, you have the committed photographer who doesn't mind lugging a heavy DSLR around, while on the other, you have the people who rely on their smartphone cameras, millions of which are terrific in some situations, but ultimately have very limited capabilities.

Rajiv Laroia and Dave Grannan
According to Light cofounder and CEO Dave Grannan, the L16 replicates the functionality of a full-frame DSLR with three prime lenses, and a telephoto that zooms from 35 mm to 150 mm.

Under the hood, the camera—which is about the same height and width as an iPhone 6S Plus with a little more thickness—features five 35 mm lenses, five 70 mm lenses with mirrors, and six 150 mm lenses. The mirrors, explained Grannan, fold the optics, and help keep the L16 as compact as possible. It also has an onboard 5-inch LCD high-definition display.

Although the camera features 16 lenses, it uses just 10 when shooting a photograph. The L16’s magic, as Grannan puts it, is in the algorithms it uses to select which 10 to fire.

The key is that the camera was designed to simultaneously capture many different high-res images and then automatically fuse them into a single photograph with a resolution of up to 52 megapixels. That makes the L16 ideal for shooting everything from kids' soccer games to concerts, the company believes. And thanks to post-processing technology available on users’ computers, it’s also possible to edit photos to change the depth of field after the fact.

In addition, the L16’s exposure time and ISO settings are equivalent to that found on high-end DSLRs, Grannan says, while offering a depth-of-field perspective equivalent to f/1.2 that matches that of very fast, high-quality lenses.

The camera is also capable of shooting 4K video with true optical zoom.

Gap Intelligence analyst Scott Peterson told Fast Company by email. "It is this appeal of 'quality without hassle' that the company is banking on to drive adoption of its technology, adding weight to the launch of the L16, as not only a first product from Light, but also as one of the consumer market's first glimpses at something beyond the traditional imaging industry's recent offerings."

Peterson lauded the L16's "staggering 52-megapixel image output" as establishing a new threshold for consumer cameras. But he worries that the L16's cost, especially its full retail $1,699 price, "may be its biggest challenge" to capturing significant market share.

"While the L16's 'DSLR-killer' features such as depth-of-field control and its robust 35-150mm equivalent zoom range will undoubtedly resonate well with many," Peterson says, "consumer understanding regarding the benefits of Light's technology will be the hurtle to overcome, making Light's efforts to recruit brand advocacy/awareness critical in its early hour."

[paste:font size="3"]Foxconn—which is making the camera—that allows the Chinese manufacturing giant to build a scaled-down version of Light’s technology into smartphones.

According to Grannan, Foxconn will have the right to incorporate multiple lenses with a focal length of up to 100 mm into its partners’ phones. Light doesn’t have any control over who those partners are, and won’t necessarily have advance notice about such partnerships, but one of Foxconn’s major smartphone partners is Apple.

The story behind the L16 and Light.
Grannan said he expects Foxconn to begin shipping Light’s technology in phones by the end of next year. Light will be able to certify that such integrations meet its standards, and will receive a royalty on each phone sold.

On the basis of its technology, as well as its Foxconn deal, Light has secured a total of $35 million in funding. Today, it has 47 employees, mainly based in Palo Alto, Calif. The company is also opening a smaller office in San Francisco’s startup-centric SoMa district.

[paste:font size="3"]SOCIAL MEDIA

Light knows that photographers are eager to share their photos, and that an on-the-go camera should make that easy. As such, the L16 features onboard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functionality that enables instant sharing on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and other social networks.

The company also plans on offering a premium cloud-storage service, and the ability to push photo to users’ computers or tablet devices. At the same time, iOS and Android apps will allow people to post photos from their smartphones.

Hi folks,

I've read good and bad things concerning the X-T1 autofocus performance. Some people claim it to be top notch and ready for sports/action photography, while other say it's 5 years or more behind in that regard (comapred to DSLRs). I know the experience and expectations vary greatly for people, some may be satisfied when a picture is mostly in focus, while some of the critics may just not know the traits of the camera system (because they are only used to DSLRs).

So that's why I'm looking for professionals that have used Fuji (especially the X-T1) for some time and can judge how good the AF performance of it really is. I'm interested in pictures shot wide open with shallow depth of field, in fast paced sport and erratic movements. Can the X-T1 keep up with DSLRs? If not, how many generations is it behind (e.g. similar AF performance to 7D, D200, etc.)? What are the differences compared to DSLRs that a photographer needs to take into consideration?

Thanks in advance for sharing your experience and assessment. Looking forward to your answers! :)

Hi members from LA,

I'll arrive next sunday afternoon around 3 pm in LA. On monday I'll start a business trip for one week through the USA. My Hotel is not so far from the airport (Hilton Garden Inn Redondo) and the neighborhood of the Hotel seems pretty boring. So my plan is to take a taxi to Manhattan Beach, stroll down to Hermosa Beach, go for a swim, have a drink at a beach bar and dinner in Hermosa by the sea side. Good plan?

I was contemplating about renting a bike and driving along the beaches but not so much time, sunset around 7, no bike rental nearby.

Thanks for your input.

I often buy from ebay, especially my vintage glass and accessories (adapters e.g.). The stuff from china arrives fast, free of tax and customs and the support is great (as in free replacement, no questions asked)

But, I very often found a lot of stuff to be "missing", like vendor stores with 0 (zero) articles to sell but 200+ thousand positive reviews and I got on the store page after looking at an active auction.

Also, a little while ago, a friend sent me a link to an OM 50/1.4 in great condition at a great price. The link was from ebay.de and when I copy/pasted the exact title to my ebay (both on tablet with app/browser or on my computers browser) and searched for it, I couldn't find it anymore.

Obviously, I do NOT get access to all of ebay, despite searching for worldwide articles.

Did you ever experience this or do you know a solution?
Because it's really annoying not being sure if you really saw all the offers before purchasing a lens.

I also find my own auctions to only get a very small number of clicks (60 in a week), although the x100s usually gets thousands of views when I look at other, similar offers.

Can you tell me whether you can find mine? (and indicate your country/ebay-version)

Fujifilm x100s mit Zubehör - with accessories - great condition

It's the one in front of a black background; the only one as far as I can tell.

A lovely stretch of beach. I set out with the intent to get to a promontory (visible in the far distance) that I've seen from the road for, oh, 30-something years. Of course I got sidetracked by pretty much everything and didn't make it there until the best of the light was gone. I'll forego the distractions next time, maybe.

This was about a third of the way along the beach and demanded some of my attention. This is an 8 minute+ exposure with the sun in the sky. X Pro 1, 14mm, Lee Seven 5 system.

If I remember correctly, the original launched at 1600-1700 USD. Assuming the second iteration will be at least that much, what will need to be upgraded and/or included for you to be ready and willing to pay $1700+? In other words, what would need to be included in order for you to preorder without hesitation because it is just THAT AWESOME?

For me, it will be retention of the hybrid VF with some innovative improvements, much faster AF (noticeably better than the current xt1 with fw 4.0), better ISO performance with a much higher cap than 6400 natively, tilt screen with higher resolution than other current models, max mechanical shutter speed of 1/8000th, dual card slot, larger buffer, new processer with faster UI and general response time, slight increase in size if it allows for a larger battery.

If there is any possibility of introduction of the organic sensor (which will more than likely not happen) and/or a global electronic shutter, perhaps IBIS, then those things alone combined with the operating performance simular to xt1 would be enough to convince me. But I know these three things probably won't happen so I didn't want to include it in my list.

Just some random thoughts. Sorry if this has already been hashed and rehashed previously. I was just prompted to think about it since I just passed on buying a few other things in hopes that the xpro2 would be announced within the next 6 months.

Hey all. Firstly, not sure if this thread should go under the 'accessories' category, but please feel free to move it if needed, mods :)

I've been taking four lenses on my shoots recently. Currently in constant carry for events are:

Gripped XT-1
12mm Zeiss
5 total batteries

Might seem like a lot to some, but I've found the need to have the 12mm on me for weddings in tight spaces. I've also found the need for extreme dof that the 23 offers...Dang it, lol. The 16-55 and 50-140 are just staples I can't do without due to the ever changing nature of weddings. Zooms just make my life a bit easier. I can justify it all day :p

I have this all stuffed into a Billingham Hadley Pro, but find that the larger lenses take up a LOT of room and am finding it difficult to navigate through the bag easily. I absolutely love the bag for a non-gripped camera with the 23 or 16-55 attached and a few accessories in the pockets, but when I plan on shooting with a gripped camera, the bag proves a bit too narrow..

What other bags should I look at to offer me a bit more room for my gear for events?
