Hi everyone,
I've just sold my last piece of Nikon equipment after 10 years. I'm a real estate photographer and have gradually switched over to Fuji this past year.

Shooting with an XPro2 and XT1 and an assortment of Fuji lens.

Hi to every one, I will like to take the advantage of the current rebate. I am checking out the XF 10-24mm, 35mm f/2 or the XF 100-400mm with tele. I already own the X-T1 ~ 18mm f/2 ~ 16mm f1.4 ~ 23mm f/1.4 ~ 27mm f/2.8 ~ 35mm f/1.4 ~ 56mm f/1.2 ~~~~ 18-55mm and the 55-200mm. I use them depending where I am going. For travel the 10-24 will be a good buy. Does it make sense to buy the 35mm f/2 having already the f1.4? Would the 100-400mm be use that much? Have someone purchase this lens and now have second thoughts ?

I fell out of photography for a while but the x-pro 1 has helped me get back into it. After not shooting much for the past year or so I took it with me on vacation and fell in love again.

I wanted to get some feedback on this photo. I never really got involved in communities so I figured message boards, getting feedback and photo assignments on sites like 500px would help keep me going better than before.

This was shot with the X-Pr0 1 and 35mm f 1.4 lens at 1.8 seconds and f/16. Despite the long shutter I did this handheld because I left my tripod at home because it was a hike and I wanted to keep hear down. Also, I shot this in color and edited with Nik silver efex pro

Let me know what you think. Thanks a lot.

A few shots from tonight on the west of Scotland, still experimenting with my new xpro2 + 55-200, what a great combination.

As I understand it, the hotshoe is disabled when the electronic shutter is in use. Can anyone explain to me why that is? It seems like it would be a great way to be able to 'overpower' the sun... since David Hobby is listed as a Fuji x photographer on their site I assume Fuji is aware of the potential of electronic shutters... so why would they choose to not give us the option? Is there some technical limitation that I don't know of?

Wanted to see how well silhouettes came out against the sky with the 50-140mm, so tried a location well known for its sunsets but where there were also plenty of telegraph poles and street lights to bring out fine detail in silhouette:

Hi, so today i picked up a Fuji 23 1.4 to give me something a little wider than my 35 f2. No complaints as far as build quality or sharpness, its a little bigger than the 35 f2 but not too big and seems to balance well on my xpro2. Now the only thing i notice is the AF is definitely a little noiser than my 35 f2 or 55-200, at times it sort of jitters back and forward, is this normal ? I also tried the 18-55 at the camera shop and its AF definitely seemed quieter than the 23 F1.4. My initial feeling is the AF on both 35 f2 and 55-200 is faster and quieter on my xpro2.

Hi, I have difficulties to get my RAW(RAF files on my Imac El Capitan and Iphoto. Unable to read files comes up every time and only Jpeg is possible to get. Same story with my X pro-1 and now the pro-2. What is the problem?

I wanted to see what my little Raynox M-150 clip on macro lens could do, so I put it on my Fuji 18-135mm lens and headed outside.
These were cropped slightly, but overall, I'm happy with the little adapter. Cheaper than a full on macro lens for now. Tech details are 1/180, f/13, ISO 400, off camera flash into a small Rogue FlashBender softbox via TTL cable and the camera mounted on a Cullman Magnesit tabletop tripod. I didn't get into focus stacking or anything, these are just single shots touched up a bit in Lightroom.

Well, just came home from a trip up North in Pangasinan, Philippines. We went to different towns and shot several locations as well. I will be sharing and updating the thread from the first day we started to the last.

Enjoy and Cheers to all!

First day we drove about 12pm going to Labrador, Philippines a town we were just passing through and staying overnight. We didnt expect any good sunrise here and we arrive there greeted by rainy and heavy winds.

We woke up at 5am just to catch this fiery sunrise just behind our room. Yes it was pure luck, and really, after a rainy episode it usually fires up like this.




Thanks for viewing. Will be back for more in a couple of days... Cheers mates!

For a couple of weeks at least I am being told by the ad at the top of the page that, no kidding, I am the 1 millionth visitor and could win something.

Trying to hold in the excitement.

When I got out my X-T1 yesterday I found the shutter speed dial had gone incredibly stiff. The camera could detect what position it was in but it was very hard to turn- so much so that I had to use two hands to rotate it - I was worried it would snap off!

Upon investigation I found the speed dial had seized against the lower exposure weighting dial - which it was rotating at the same time.

I was going to take it to the camera shop to send it off to Fuji but I am going away in a weeks time and I wanted the X-T1 for that. I decided to dribble a tiny drip of WD40 between the shutter speed and exposure weighting dial. I gave this a go and after a few turns it was working perfectly!

I know the X-T1 is full of rubber weatherproofing seals, I am guessing one of these had slipped out of place and had jammed the two dials together. I am guessing the WD-40 probably just encouraged the seal to ping back into place.

Has anyone else had this issue? I hadn't knocked or bashed the camera before this happened and it's never had anything spilt on it or been in contact with sand or grit.

If this is something that happens a lot and is likely to get worse I will consider sending it off to Fuji after I come back from my holiday, else I'll leave it.

I have almost had the X-T1 a year so if it's worth getting fixed under warranty I'd like to get it fixed before the warranty runs out. It's the first time this has happened since I bought the camera.

Has anyone else had issues or was this just a one off that I can ignore?

As my first X-T1 was DOA out of the box, I can't believe I have had the bad luck to have anothe faulty X-T1 :(

I captured this photo of my wife's father last year. During WWII he was a member of the elite 4th Marine Raider Battalion, so I thought the timing might be right to share this image with the forum. He's still hanging in there today and is a peaceful, gentle man.

Taken with my X-T1 and 35 mm F1.4. B&W post processing with Silver Efex Pro 2.

Has anyone purchased the Fuji X Passion Magazine?

Curious what it's like as the magazine + postage is almost $30aud....although they claim it's more like a book.

This is an iconic, very ancient market in the center of Porto, Portugal, nowadays there's more tourists than customers inside, but most sellers keep the same traditions as for the last decades. It's a mandatory place to visit when you go to this historical city.

Dominic is 78 years old and is a true motorcyclist. Amongst his collection is a 1976 BMW R90 with an English sidecar, a late 1950s Aerial square four and this 1954 Sunbeam with a German Steil Sidecar.
Being a true motorcyclist all of Dominics bikes are regularly ridden even on days when its about 10C and pouring with rain.
BTW. Dominic is camera shy.

For the past four or five years I have been shooting adapted lenses on mirrorless and something that I have noticed lately is that my preference as to which lenses I prefer changes depending on the body. For instance, when I use my NEX 5n I really like to shoot Minolta. They just seem work well together. I don't know if Sony buying Minolta's camera business has anything to do wth it but the Minoltas and the Sony seem made for each other. Part of it is that the NEX 5n has no EVF so I shoot from the waist and the larger lenses like Minolta (and Canon FD) give me a place to grab to stabilize the very small Sony body. I also think there is an argument to be made that the way certain lenses render may be a better match with the way some lenses.

On the X-P1 I am finding that I am choosing to use my Olympus OM lenses more (I don't even like OM lenses all that much). It's the combination of their amazingly compact size making for a light combo with the X-P1 and something about the way they render that seem to be a good match with the X-P1. I also find that my Konica 40 pairs up well with Fuji.

Of course YMMV.

I'm perplexed with my X100t.
I notice that the 'Face Detection Focusing' icon only shows up in the EVF but not the OVF. The OVF only displays the 'Focus Area' icon, weather I choose Face Detection or not. If so how am I to know if I've chosen Face Detection or Focusing Area while viewing thru the OVF? And more importantly is Face Detection focusing operational in the OVF mode?

It has a longish focus throw which is not one of my favorite things but I do love the images it makes. Generally speaking I find 100mm lenses kind of awkward to use. I can't seem to get the woking distance into my head. I'm always having to adjust.

X-T1 Ver 4.3
Usually my SD card is named Untitled, the files are usually in directory DCIM /100_FUJI
When I went to import them, the SD card had a different subdirectory - DCIM/101_FUJI
This happened after the last SD card format. I tried formatting again-- still 101_FUJI
It's been 100_Fuji ever since i got the camera.
I always format in the camera.
Any idea why the name change.

I was recently contacted by a writer I had met last summer at an opening for a show I was having. He is the environmental writer for the "big paper" here in Milwaukee. He has recently completed a book on the life and death of the great lakes due to invasive species. His book is off to the editor and they are working on a cover. He asked if I would be willing to allow one of my images to be used as the cover as well as wrap around the spine to the back. I agreed. I have also been contacted by the publishing house W.W. Norton The first run will be for 50000 copies worldwide distribution and english only. I have no idea what to quote and google is of no help. Any advice from you fine folks would be appreciated. FYI the image was shot with my trusty old X-Pro and 56mm

Took advantage of the current Fuji instant savings and got the 50-230 OIS at a great price. The one I received DOES NOT say "OIS II" on the box or the lens. I called Fuji to find out if the new vII's are labeled and was told the lens would say OIS II near the front element. Mine just says OIS

The tech I spoke with was not able to tell me what the part number or SKEW number is for the later version however.

I have searched in vain online and cannot find any retailer that specifically identifies what they are selling as OIS or OIS II

DOES ANYONE OUT THERE HAVE THE OIS II version of the 50-230mm??

If so, can you tell me the part/model number from the box?
Not sure if I should make such as fuss, but since the "old" and "new" versions are supposedly the same price, I dont know why it is so difficult to find the new one.

Was watching this video, where Fuji Guy Billy hints that the EVF + processor is capable of being updated to a refresh rate of 120fps to approximately match the human eye (around the 15:10 mark). That's quite amazing.

I've never seriously considered the 300mm lens from Rokinon before since it's very slow but I've thought of a user for it -- on my tracking mount for nighttime shots. But I can't seem to find any real info on coma performance. Does anyone know how the center and edges perform for coma?

Gloat time.

I looked at this lens for a while and placed an order (B&H) when the current promotion began. The lens, initially back ordered, arrived yesterday (Thurs 26 May 16) and I managed some thirty plus pix so far today. I severely like this item. Unfortunately for others, the lens is again currently back ordered at B&H. This is a gem lens that completes my Fuji gear collection (smile).

Why then did my wife catch me online this AM looking at more Fujifilm stuff?

The new ISO dial on the XP2 doesn't bother me -- I just leave it in Auto most of the time -- but I know that it frustrates some users that they can't change ISO using a Function button and the rear dial.

So, I have come up with a small workaround that will please no one. :)

1. Set each of the three Auto-ISO Presets so they have the same Base ISO and Upper Limit*: e.g., I have the first Preset as ISO 400 for the Base, and ISO 400 for the upper limit. Preset 2 is ISO 800 for each of these, and Preset 3 is ISO 1600.

2. Now set the Function Button on the top of the camera next to the shutter speed dial to ISO Auto Setting. Set the ISO Dial itself to A for Auto.

3. When shooting, press the Fn button and use either the rear dial or the up-down arrows on the 4-way controller to choose one of the Presets, which effectively sets a fixed ISO, in this example I can choose 400, 800, or 1600. Because the limit is the same as the base, the ISO will not change.

*Note that you can't make ISO200 work with this, as the lowest Upper Limit is 400.

I am now putting on my flame-retardant clothing. Fire away. :)

...that to turn sound and flash OFF you choose the "Sound and Flash Off" menu and turn it "ON" but to turn sound and flash ON, you choose the "Sound and Flash Off" menu, and turn it "OFF."

This keeps biting me because every so often, it toggles without my help, and digging into the menus almost never causes me to realize this inside-out, double-negative menu choice is still there.

That is all! </rant>
