Here are some initial thoughts on the X70 that arrived today. I think this is my new favorite.

I've had a Fuji X-T10 and JPEGs would be around 7MB in size. Some up to 10.5MB. Today playing with an X-T1 with the latest firmware, I haven't had a single JPEG file larger than 5.8MB (most around 3.5-4.5MB), even the detailed outdoor variety. I thought I've read someone say that the X-T1 post firmware 4.0 has increased its JPEG size, but it looks like a no? Or am I doing something wrong?

Basically it seems like my X-T10 JPEGs looked a bit better, sharper at the same settings, and I'm trying to get to the bottom of this difference.

Here's a discussion on the X-T10 JPEG size from a while ago:

edit, well, apparently this site blocks fuji x forum, if you substitute the stars with that, you'll get to the discussion thread.

Fujifilm X-T1 - XF 14mm F2.8
30 seconds, f/5.6, +2, ISO 2000

I wake up at around 1 or 2 AM to travel south with friends for about 1 to 2 hours, in the hopes of catching a sunrise. We sometimes wander to coastal areas in nearby provinces. When we arrive earlier than expected, I like just sitting somewhere to soak in the place (probably munching on something like a cookie). This photo was taken at 5:33 AM. You can imagine how quiet it is that time, with only water and bird sounds reaching your ears. I was just sitting there waiting for the sun to rise when I noticed a man on a boat near the fish pen. He moved quietly and swiftly.

Hi. On my XT10 when you assign the movie record buttom to Face Detection it works perfectly - you press and hold the button to turn off or on. However on my XT1 when I press the movie record button it brings up an annoying menu (and another annoying and pointless step) from which you have to either select on or off. Is there any way of turning off this extra step on the Xt1?

Thanks!

I decided to get out and enjoy our first really warm 80+ degree day of the year so I took a walk/hike in Papago Park today and make this the first outing with my newly acquired X-T1. Papago is located in Phoenix, Arizona and represents a near desert environment though I don't believe broken bottles are native to the desert. Both shots with X-T1 at ISO 200 and 18-55 lens with polarizer filter used to cut down on harsh sunlight. First shot f10, 1/125 second, focal length of 29mm.

Or B&W if you are so inclined.

Second shot f6.4, 1/180 second focal length of 37mm

I use my Focus Assist button on my X-T1 a lot and want to raise it so it’s easier to feel. Has anyone experimented with any kind of stick on solutions, maybe micro peel and stick rubber feet or other suggestions?

I've started getting several disfiguring smudge-marks on my pictures. Always in the same place, but generally only visible when I'm using a relatively small aperture. One obvious example is shown in this picture:

I can't see any obvious damage to my lens. I've brushed it with my lens cleaner to get rid of any dust, to no avail, tried the wiper on my lens cleaner and even cleaned it with an alcohol-based cleaning fluid and lens cloth.

Although I've never removed the lens since I bought the camera, I've even tried cleaning the inner lens; still no difference.

Any suggestions what I might have done? And more important, what I might be able to do to solve the problem?
Thanks.

Me again!

Yes it was a big sporting week-end :)
Here is a few pics from l'Épreuve du Nord, a SAE mini-Baja endurance race. The Engineering Department at Laval University has been hosting the northernmost race in the circuit for the last 11 years, it's also the only one to take place in the snow !
It's the second time that I get a chance to shoot this really amazing and gruesome 2 hours event, out of the 27 Bajas on the starting line only 14 will make it to the end!

Here 's a link to the Wikipedia article on Baja SAE: Baja SAE - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I will be going on a dream vacation to Galapagos in Ecuador, next May, and I am trying to decide which best combo lens to take with me....Currently own the 18-55 and 55-200, 35mm f/1.4, I am curious as if the 18-135 with its WR would be a good choice or perhaps should I take care of my WA needs and either get the 14mm or the 10-24 for the wide angle shots?? what do you recommend??
thanks

I caved (actually I knew that I would) and just placed my pre-order. Looks like I will have at least a couple of months to ponder my next move (whether to sell the X-T1 or X100T). I'm in no hurry, as long as it is here by November when I head to Japan ... ;)

Hi All !

This is a classic here during the Winter Carnaval, this sport is very specific to the St-Lawrence River and it's history, I don't think there is any other place where you can see something like it. This really active and dynamic sport is very demanding for the athletes, in this race the pro class will do a total of 15 km, crossing the river three time. During the winter there is a total of 7 races along the St-Lawrence River, and lucky me, two of them are in my home town, Quebec City.

Not much ice on the river this year made it easy and fast for the "canoteurs", but it was less spectacular for us the spectators and photographers. Never the less it was a great opportunity for some good action shot.

Here's a link to the Wikipedia article about the sport: Ice canoeing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I used mostly my X-T1 with the Xf50-140mm + XF1.4 TC and a second body, my good old X-E1, paired with the XF16-55 for close shoot. I was standing right by one of the three buoys delimiting the race course, so it was easy to get some shots of the canoes coming toward me.

I have often commented on too much emphasis being placed on Weather sealing equipment. As I have noted in those threads, during the “old school” film days we did not worry about weather sealed cameras but relied on keeping our equipment in plastic bags normally used by bakeries to wrap loafs of bread. These were water tight and very flexible and did not impact operation of the camera in a negative manner. Today I was watching a rebroadcast of the women’s golf tournament (LPGA) that took place in the rain sometime over the weekend and I noted that every single photographer, judging by the gear they were using, I am assuming that they were “professionals” had their camera wrapped in a plastic bag. So I guess old school is never out of date.

Thank you
I think you can tether with the XT1 but would love to be able to do it with my XE2 though. Don't know if Fuji think of it as a pro feature and only putting it on their top of the range cameras but the it's a very useful feature on any camera and a easy firmware upgrade I'm sure.

I have looked at some online pre-reviews of the new model, but could not find a clear answer: Will the OVF "zoom" like the one on the XP--1 does when a short zoom, like the 18-55 is mounted?

I seem to have lost the focus box in the view finder. I can hear the focus beep confirmation but no box. If I select the box to resize it or move it it is there. On the LSD it is normal and working. I did do a firmware update but don't remember if it occurred then as I was testing out a new lens.

hi
i recently try a nikon 20mm f3,5 on my XE2 but with f3,5 , i could hardly set focus because through the viewfinder it's very dark......so the "bright" idea is to go to menu and set viewfinder brigthness at +2 or 3
so now manual focusing would be easier
that was "trick of the day !"

see you

I'm a 5 day owner of an XT-10, love the camera. I've been spending lots of time with the menus and related settings to customize it for my own use. I am baffled with the Q menu system, yes I understand what it does just can't get settings to stay in place. For excample I try to set Film Simulation to Sepia in C1 so far so good, but when I return to Base Sepia is in place and not Std. With that said are there are sources where I can find an explanation. I do have a copy of Rico Pfirstinger's Rocky Nook book on the X-10 that does shed light on the Q menu, but I'm missing something.

By the way Macmodus great job on that excel spreadsheet.

Probably like a lot of other enthusiasts I found I was'nt going out shooting because I could'nt be bothered with carting around a DSLR and lenses..so after visiting a lot of you tube reviews I've purchased an x-30, low price on Amazon, (would love an x pro-2) which arrived today, just waiting for battery to charge then I'm off out shooting!
Hope to chat with you all from time to time

...isn't recommended. The 56mm is great for those individual shots but I'm not sure it's the lens of choice in the outdoors with two running Labradors in a estuary. Probably won't do that again!!

i was asked by my friend who has anew Fuji XT1 as to how to get the flash to operate. I know this issue has come up a number of times and I have gone through both this forum and DP review looking for an answer. I even read the manual and the new editions manual. I still can't get the flash to fire on my XT1 and neither can she. I have the camera set up as described in the manuals and the forums:

1. Mechanical shutter
2. Sound and flash off is off so I have full sound on the camera (old silent mode)
3. Camera is on single shot on the drive dial
4. Flash is correctly situated.
5. fLash head is in the upright position
6. I can access the flash menu in both Q menu and menu 4

I have turned the camera on and off, I have turned off and removed the flash, turned on and reattached the flash. I have tried each of the different flash menus and tried shooting in P mode. I have tried each of the three metering modes. My friend has tried all of these strategies too. The one thing that is interesting is that I don't get a flash symbol. Each time I take a shot the flash fails to fire.

Clearly we are both missing something as it can't happen with two different bodies and two different flash units. I can't find an answer in old forum posts. Can someone please point me in the right direction as my friend is getting very frustrated and I don't want something to beat me.

Thanks in advance, jane

Is there a way in X-E2/FW4 of using AF-C (either mode) to track the subject but allow the AE adjust itself as it tracks it? I seems to me that half-pressing the shutter (in order to track the subject) locks the exposure, and I can't figure out how not to lock the AE but still be able to track the subject using AF-C.

Cheers!
