X-T1 and 16mm

Hello All,

I am looking for some help on microphones for when I do video. I'm not a professional or doing professional video just augmenting the video I take of the family.
The Fuji has a smaller jack (smaller than 3.5mm) and my current microphone (a lavalier) has a 3.5mm jack. So I haven't been able to use it.

What are your suggestions? I can get an adapter (I can use some help finding one as the one I found on amazon came with the wrong size so I could use a recommendation)

I have been looking at Rhode microphones but it is unclear whether they will work with the X-Pro2 Jack.
OR is there a fuji option?

Hello all,
In one of the last x-stories posted, fujifilm compares those two lenses as well as the 23mm in the x100 series.

About the 23mm f1.4 they say: "XF23mmF1.4 renders dynamic image with added depth". What are they talking about? can anyone explain me, please?

About the new 23mm f2.0 they say: "XF23mmF2 renders images with lots of information, which is a plus for snapshooters". same question here, what do they mean by lots of information? is it about tonal rendition?

Please, help, I can't understand them.
Thanks you

This guy is a local Personal Trainer and just won his first bodybuilding competition at the weekend. He'd booked the shoot to fall just two days after the comp, so he'd be in great condition.
X-Pro2 with 50-140mm f2.8, 2 Godox AD360's with either a gridded strip soft box or 120cm octabox as key light and snoot or gridded standard diffuser as backlight. Shot using Acros emulation mode and given one of my own wee tweaked presets in Lightroom.

Searching eBay recently for a Fuji-mount macro lens, and came across this....60/2.8-22, manual focus, normal to 2x macro (twice life size, zowie), dimensions 95x70mm, weight 680 grams (ouch), US$238 but there are several offered, some more and some less.
Specs suggest a special internal mechanism to move the glass enough distance to focus from infinity continuously to 2:1 in what looks like a one-piece metal housing, and that may account for the weight.
My Konica Macro Hexanon 55/3.5 is a 2-piece lens, three counting the Fuji adapter, weighs 485 grams total and does infinity to life size, but not continuously, so this Chinese lens sounds interesting.
Comments, reviews?

I was wondering if anyone has any idea of what type of focal lens equiv. the TCL mounted on a X70 would give.
I understand that it would screw on since the lens diameter are the same as the X100 series.
my suspicion is that if the TCL on a 100 gives the FL of a 50mm then on a X70 it should give only something like a 35mm or so, anybody run a test or have feed back to share? thansk

After a year or more of use (should look up when I purchased the camera...can't remember,) an SD card got stuck n the slot. I managed to get it out. Now, SD card when inserted won't click in, but will read if I close the door over it.

Is this a common malady with the xt1? Any home cures known or do I have to send it to Fuji to be fixed?

Help and thanks.

My X20 died and costing the same as new X30 to fix it, ordered the X30 from T-dimension. Now they say no stock and it appears the same story across most retailers (amazon, adorama). Any suggestions for sourcing a new or as new /used X30?

Got another XT2 and the 56 1.2 today so I'm almost there in terms of replacing my Nikon kit with just a couple more lenses or three to get.
I have the 16, 56, 60mac and 90 at the moment, and will be getting the 50-140 and 10-24 and the 23f2 next.
So pretty much ready for work as a 3/4 Fuji Guy.

Only hold up really is the flash-on-camera situation at this point and while I don't use flash on camera all that often, when you need it, you need it and I certainly wouldn't go anywhere without one.
I bought the little Nissin i40 today thinking it would be a good pack/back-up flash for travelling light on the fishing stuff I do, but still want something properly beefy like the new 500 that's coming out soon. (maybe)
First testing with the i40 reveals it doesn't work beyond a tiny little bink of light in any settings.
After a bit of reading I see there's some issues with firmware and I might have jumped the gun ?

I did expect there might be glitches when buying a just released model so I'm not angry about this, but I do hope there's a fix in the works.

Thought I'd set myself a challenge, on my way to the dentist this morning I brought my X-T1 and chose the XF35mm and shot it wide open at f/1.4 for all these shots, here's what I came up with, nothing exciting really, just to see what I could photograph within thirty minutes.

All shot on 1:1 ratio with classic chrome selected and NO processing whatsoever, J-Peg only, kind of arty/abstract captures;

I have never had problems updating either camera body or lenses before, but have run into a problem this time. I downloaded the updates from the Fuji site - version 3.11 from version 3.10 for the 35mm F1.4 lens, and for the XPro 1 body update from version 3.50 to version 3.70 but the camera cannot find either of these on my card when transferring to the camera. I did this one at a time, formatting the card between downloads, but cannot get them to work. Any suggestions please?

OK ALL DONE: the file name had been altered by the download and had to be revised.

Now that I'm back in Asia from sunny Southern California I am confronted with how to store my lenses and bodies in a very humid environment. The first couple months I used a box with desiccant and kept an eye on the humidity level with a hygrometer. I was able to get it down to 45%, but was having to replace or add to the desiccant every week or so.

Yesterday I was finally able to find a dehumidifier box. Got it home and moved all my equipment over to it. This morning the humidity in the box is at 37%! I couldn't be happier. The cost of the box, $US 185, is money well spent. Beats the cost of losing a lens or body to fungus.

Any best practices out there? I'm keeping the box in an area that is cooler than many areas of the house without air-conditioning so I can take out a body and lens and not have to worry about condensation forming on them.

I can't get AF+MF to work on my XE2. I can't tell if this is a lens issue with the new 23 f2 or a camera issue.

With AF+MF turned on and set to AF-S, nothing happens when I turn to focus the lens. Wondering if I'm doing something wrong here or it's not designed as expected.

Fuji Australia are offering $300 off in a cash back. When I mentioned it today to my Fuji retailer in NZ he laughed and said his store is offering $400 off for cash deals. He said since the T2 has been launched Pro2 orders almost 'dried up overnight'.

I have the T2, but if I didn't- buying a Pro2 at $500-$600 less would be very attractive regardless of the viewfinder. That's almost half a 56! Almost.

I left work a bit early today so that I could go for a hike in Ohiopyle State Park. I haven't been out too much yet this Autumn and I missed the peak color, but it was still very nice to get out. A few more on my website. All pictures taken with an X-T1, Rokinon 12mm f/2 and a B+W Circular Polarizer on a tripod. Some shots had a variable ND filter as well.

hi everybody,
I am a cross road and I need your advise.
I had in the past an X100S which I loved but regretelly sold to finance my XT1.
I have always heard so many good comments about the originla X100 but never had a chance to fidn out on my own.
I finally decided to act. I found a useed X100 for sale for 550 canadian the SN starts with 21 so ther should not be a sticky blades issue with it hopefully.
I know it is a 12 MP instead of 16, but that may be part of the great looking files it produced compared to the more modern S/T models.
I would like you to tell me what am I not getting by buying the original camera that instead I would get by buying the S or T
in therms of features and or quality of the pictures.
that would really help me in my decision making.

thanks a lot

Almost every time I see an image, usually a street shot, of a person looking at his phone, I am annoyed for two reasons:

1. It's usually not an interesting shot.
2. It probably means the shooter is choosing subjects based on level of distractedness and therefore, ease of access.

That is all.

What's the best way to view our beloved pictures ?
I mean my monitor is Samsung TV is even less : 1920x1080
Surely, that means everything is down-sampled to around 2 Megapixels ?

So, are 4k televisions a serious upgrade / worthwhile for viewing pics ?
What about 4k projectors ? Still too expensive ? (and I'd need a 4k laptop, no ?)
Obviously a large print would justify a 24 MP camera. But can't have a lot of those around the house!

Seriously ; has anyone found a decent way to view their X-Files while making (more) use of 16-24 MP ?

Quick question: has anyone tested or read anywhere that there is a fundamental, noticeable rendering of bokeh on 55-200mm when the OIS is off/on?
I can certainly give it a test when I get a chance, but was just looking for quick info.

Thanks in advance-

I went to Castle Combe last Saturday, one of our local race circuits to attend a sprint event, a great selection of cars from differing eras from track to road.

The weather was dull and overcast and we first saw signs of sun later in the afternoon but regardless, the XT2 with 16-55 for the close ups and static shots as well as the 100-400 for the track shots.

These images were my first conversions using Iridient and I have to say I am really impressed and happy with these versions compared to the images converted in LR.
