If you aren't familiar with Two-Cow Garage, you should be! One of the best rock and roll outfits in the US.
All shots taken with the Fuji 18-55. I had taken along my Konica 57 1.4 for low-light artist isolated shots, but discovered during the course of the night that it had de-centered (I believe) and failed to focus at all on the right side of images (or the bottom in portrait mode) :(

However, all was not lost as the 18-55 as usual came through with flying colors.

This weekend I ventured out to a local waterfall with my new tripod and trusty old X100S. I experimented with the built in ND filter so I could use longer shutter speeds. But that got me curious - how does the built in ND filter work? What does the camera actually do internally to give you that 3 stop effect?

When in aperture priority mode (shutter dial set to "A") the camera will default to a maximum shutter speed of 1/30 and will go no longer than that regardless of the aperture and ISO. I fix the problem by going into the menu >SET UP >RESTORE ...however, at some random time, it will default back to the 1/30 maximum shutter speed. I can understand not allowing a longer speed than 1/30 in the auto mode because it automatically adjusts the ISO but not in aperture priority and with a fixed ISO.

I actually use slower shutter speeds and the lowest ISO quite often with the camera mounted on a tripod and using a remote release this is a bit of a problem. Does anyone know about this or have a solution?

Thanks, Mike.

I am on the market for a used X100 the original, I remember reading about this sticky blades problem and someone suggested that the camera between a certain SN range were the ones to be affected by this problem.
Can anyone remember? also is there anything else I shoud look for when I meet the guy to buy his used Fuji X?

I have an X-E2 with the latest firmware. I'm old school enough that I like to shoot manually but not so old school that I don't want my histogram in the EVF. I have it on the LCD display but when I put my eye to the viewfinder and partially depress the shutter release everything but the histogram is displayed. Is it me or is that the way it is.

I keep getting bombarded with invitations to buy this software at 50% off and like all new software it is "award winning" and it will apparently turn my ordinary photos into spectacular landscapes with but a few mouse clicks.

Has anybody actually tried this product? If you have what is the verdict?

Just when I thought I was as far down the rabbit hole I could get. Then I find an old Leica Colorplan projector lens, a roll of duct tape and an M42 mount adapter.

I would like to purchase a used Fuji camera body as a dedicated infrared camera. I was considering buying an EX1 camera body. Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions. I am using my first Fuji camera, the XT2 and love. I have a 14mm and 35 prime, plus 16-55 2.8 and 10-24 lens. Would these work?

Thanks for your suggestions and feedback.

It was a bright sunny Sunday afternoon and my lady and I stopped at a biker bar in Cave Creek Arizona to check out the outdoor party they were hosting. There are scores of great looking women walking around, a band is playing, lots of activities, vendor displays of custom bike components, people are laughing and having a good time and this guy is sitting on one of the bars, his feet on the stool and his head buried in his cell phone. No, this was not a momentary shot. He was in this position for quite a while which is what prompted me to get up off my stool, turn the camera on, walk across the floor so I could get close and take the shot. I call this an addiction.

Searched, didnt see a thread, but I am on the road so apologies if this is a duplicate thread.

Aside from gaffers tape, has anyone found a solution to keeping the diopter from being adjusted when putting the camera into/out of a camera bag?

In my big trade towards XT-2 I had to give up my X100S.
I´m a hybrid shooter so I needed the better video and XT-2 is really the reason that made it possible to return home to Fuji :)

But, I've lived daily with X100S and that field of view; 35mm is really that frame that I see naturally. I´ve learned to instantly know without even looking through the camera what a good 35mm frame is; thanks to X100S.

With X-T2 I got XF18-55 f2.8-4 and XF35 f2. I need those lenses. When I traded they didn't have the XF23 f2 in stock, so I ordered it later on. Today I got it in the mail :)

I will not buy X100F as I will now put my money towards the lenses so I can later upgrade the digital body whenever they make drastic progress.

I now have my daily camera back! But in the combination of XT-2 and XF23 f2. A little bulkier but I got now daily good video and a better photographic tool. I can live with the slight size compromise :)

The one lens I can´t live without, as I learned, is the 23.

I'm not really a wedding photographer as I like my weekends too much, but I got asked by a friend to cover here wedding recently. I shot the whole thing with my Fuji system which performed really well throughout. I love candid photography so I shot it in a documentary style, inspired by the wonderful work done by Kevin Mullins. The light was generally terrible in the hall, very dim and flat. That said I was overall pleased with how it turned out and with the performance of my gear. More importantly so was the Bride and Groom :)

Bill Thornhill's Blog

My X-Pro1 struggled with the low light but I had very little issues with the X-T1. I purchased the 23mm f1.4 to use during the day, and found I shot over 70% of the day with it by the end.

CC very welcome :)

I currently have a 21.5-inch iMac (desktop) that I edit from, plus a 15-inch MacBook Pro for my mobility needs. I take my iMac back and forth from home to AZ when we go south for the winter (laptop as well). I am soon, going to need to replace computers. (thanks to my older graphics cards which I am not able to change out in either computer)

I have several options to choose from and am curious as to what others do. I would love to go to a 13 inch MacBook Pro for convenience and easier travel, but have also pondered the idea of just having a laptop and hook it up to monitors and work with the laptop from there. Does anyone do this, and if so pros and cons on this scenario? If I did this, should I stick with a 15-inch or would the 13-inch do as well? Dual Processors (13 in) vs. quad Processors (15 in)? ….I hate the thought of upgrading to 2 new computers. Thanks for any input.

Took a little time to go around the neighborhood and stuck my lens up inside the canopy of leaves in a few trees. Simple images... nothing earth shattering... Just nice to get out and enjoy the warmth of the changing leaves.

I managed to sneak away and get some light hiking in. Strolled to the top of an overlook called Split Rock and then back to the bottom at Jacob's Creek falls. All 3 shots taken with an X-T1, Rokinon 12mm with a Circular Polarizer on the front.

This past weekend, a place where my family was staying had it's kiln firing and many pieces of ceramic artwork inside. The volunteers consisted of artists to keep the flames going for days. When I took these, the temperature was about 1,600 degree's Fahrenheit. These are a few of the pictures. I love the texture and color of the wood in the first one (Fuji 56mm). The 2nd picture is one of the holes in the side that they closed with bricks, but the flames found a way out (Fuji 56mm). The last is the back end of the kiln and the chimney (Fuji 23mm).

Just wondering if anyone else with this combination has experienced this problem... When I have my Nissin i40 in Manual (M) mode and shutter speed on camera set to about 1/800 sec. or higher the flash would randomly lose sync. Exposures would be great for a number of frames and then I would suddenly get a dark or black frame. The only way to recover is to turn the flash off/on again.

This seems to be happening only when flash is in M mode. TTL and wireless slave modes work fine and reliably at the same shutter speeds.

Also, I noticed that the i40 when fired only on center pin using a non-Canon cable will only sync at 1/200sec. compared to my EF-42 which will sync at any speed.

Is this normal behavior for the i40 or is my flash defective?
Travelled for work to Vilnius this weekend. Had to travel extremely light, so I just took the good old X100 with me. Still going strong! 02-DSCF6639_Vilnius.jpg 01-DSCF6633_Vilnius.jpg 03-DSCF6704_Vilnius.jpg
