Hi, I'm an X10 owner from London. I love this camera, but wanted something with a little more oomph, so I have bought myself a second hand XM1 and ordered the 27mm lens online.
I'm still waiting for the lens to be delivered so haven't had a chance to use the camera yet.
I must admit I'm a little dubious about it not having a viewfinder, even though I rarely use the viewfinder on the X10.
The shop I bought the camera from also had an EX1 for exactly the same money, so I was torn between the two. I chose the XM1 mostly because it has the same advanced filters as my X10 and the EX1 didn't. I like the 'pop' filter, it takes some stunning night time pics if the light is right.
I'm interested in seeing what the larger sensor does with the advanced filters. Everything else I shoot in black & white.
Love the forum, have spent several hours reading threads, and learnt one or two things too.
Thanks for having me.
I just received a 2-battery/charger Wasabi battery "kit" for my X-Pro2. I've used that brand of aftermarket battery before in other cameras with good result.
However, in my X-Pro2, these batteries fit extremely close. IMO they are a touch too thick and the resistance that you encounter inserting them should be a clue to stop half way. I was able to extract them without tools but I did have to bounce the bottom of my camera against my hand and "accelerate" them out of the camera. Of course the battery door is perilously open during this operation and there's a free hanging strap to tangle. I think this is a disaster waiting to happen.
My next note will be to the seller for a RMA label to return them.
My original equipment batteries slip in and out easily.
The new Wasabi's appear to be slightly bulged, and out of thickness tolerance by a very small amount.
I thought I'd share my thoughts on the pocket-ability of the X70...as you can see from the photo below its considerably slimmer than the X-M1 with 18mm lens....I'm finding it will go into my jeans pocket....and its best when contained within a small fabric pouch (which came with WD portable drive) and without the lens cap fitted. This is my best solution yet for when I don't want to carry a camera bag.
Also regarding sharpness...I'm finding I need to sharpen in post processing....but a test shot comparing the combination below could not discern a difference.
(BTW - this photo was taken with the humble X10)

May I kindly ask if there are L plate out there besides RRS?
I was in Venice for a few days recently. Before I went I agonised over which camera/lens combination to take but in the end settled on my X100T with WCL plus my X70, also with its dedicated WCL. Here are a few from the T:

Any thoughts on the Peak Design Slide Light Strap? I am worried about the anchor links and some of the negative reviews on the internet.
When attempting to upgrade firmware from 3.01 to version 4, I get a message stating that Acrobat reader does not recognize the file type, hence it won't download. I'm at wits end. Any info is appreciated.
I visit London usually once a month and thought I'd take my camera with me this time. Went for lunch at Oblix high up in The Shard although it was quite hazy so no shots from up there! Then a walk through Borough Market, St Pauls Cathedral and back along South Bank to enjoy the sun and some nice ale. Such a great day in the sun that I forgot to take photos, here are a few anyway...
I found Sandisk 16Gb Ultra SD card 80 mb/s and I currently have one same but in extreme series.
So can anyone tell me what is the difference? I googled it and it just says extreme is twice as fast, but with ultra and 80mb/s its the same speed as extreme... so got me confused! Can anyone rectify?
Just joined this forum. Been a Fujiners since 2014. Nice to meet you all
For those who don't know, "cosplay" is the practice of dressing up as characters, from TV, movies, video games, comics, etc. It's most often done at fan conventions, and I've been attending and shooting at them for years.
This last weekend was my first time attending one after trading my FF Nikon gear in on Fuji, and I'm absolutely loving the results so far. I mostly do full photoshoots and not quick walkaround snaps, and need to edit and retouch most of my photos before I can post them, but here are a couple of previews.

I'm particularly excited about the set the one above is from. The cosplayers were portraying characters from The Witcher video game series, and everything is real leather and chainmail and built to the standards of real fight-worthy historical armor.

This was much more of an off-the-cuff snapshot, but I think it's pretty cool too, especially since this guy is from Transmetropolitan, one of my favorite comics ever.
In this video, a Fuji representative talked about what they have done, and will do, in 2016. A good amount of time spent discussing technical details of the new sensor and processor in X-Pro2 (and all subsequent ILC cameras).
Processing power, sensor readout time, noise characteristics. Worth a watch, if you are into these sort of things.
I just noticed that my XP2 with a 32 gb SD card shows I have 621 exposures when shooting RAW. I could swear that I had seen the display show over 1200 with a newly formatted card.
I have either accidentally changed a setting or am losing my memory and mind, which is entirely possible.
If it should be approximately 1200 exposures, what setting might I have changed?
If 600 plus sounds right for 32 gb for uncompressed RAW, please let me know that I am losing my mind.
Hey guys early next year after a four month stint in China I'll be catching the Trans Mongolian Railway through Northern China, Mongolia, Russia and Siberia. It'll we be smack bang in the middle of Winter when I start the trip so I can expect snow, ice and freezing temperatures.
At this point in time my current setup is a Fuji XT-1 with a 14mm, 35mm 1.4 and 18-55mm. None of which are weather sealed, only the XT-1 body. I took this kit with me for 6 months through Southeast Asia and it worked a treat although the weather was not as extreme as it will be for my next trip.
I am already considering selling my 35mm 1.4 and putting the money towards the new 35mm f2 WR.
My next concern is whether the 14mm will be able to handle the cold temperatures and very likely frost and snow or if it will get ruined or damaged somewhere along the trip. The alternative is to sell the 14mm and put that money towards buying the 16mm WR.
Does anyone have experience or knowledge of how the 14mm holds up in iffy weather? I'd like to avoid having to fork out more money for the 16mm because I quite like how the 14mm performs but I don't want to miss out on some awesome landscape shots if the weather hinders the non-WR 14mm.
Thanks in advance.
It makes a revealing exercise to revisit a 2013 X100S photo that someone developed in Iridient, documenting his process on a web page at
Processing X100S RAW with IRIDIENT DEVELOPER - Part 1 - The Visual Experience
I downloaded the RAF file from the web page. You can see the scene as developed again, this time in Raw Therapee, at
Only a downsized JPG is linked. However, the RT sidecar file is attached to this post; you can apply it in Raw Therapee, see the full-size result and how it was done, and play with it yourself. (Change the file extension from .txt to .pp3)
The original web post dates from March 2013. Someone might want to grab the RAF file and run it through the current version of Iridient - if you are not convinced that Raw Therapee delivers about as much as can possibly be found in the raw capture.

I have an EF-X20 that never has functioned well and I'm not sure its functioning at all now. I want to get a new flash and I've also thought about trying off-camera. So what is the recommended course now?
Here's the options I've thought about: Metz AF26 (seems a nice little flash and cheap as chips but weak power), Lumopro 180 (not TTL but well made and great price and good start for manual off camera), and the Nissin i40 (about as far as my budget can stretch but heard great things and is TTL.)
BTW body is an X Pro 1.
I have a fuji x pro 1 and am just loving this camera. I have a 35mm wide angle lens which I use most of the time and a pancake lens which I'm still getting to grips with.
I use a little pocket camera for macro's and now I want to buy a zoom lens, but am horrified at the prices
So my question is - do I have to buy a fuji zoom for this camera, or can I buy other lenses and of so what make ?
I don't mind buying second hand but would need someone to point me in the right direction
I hope someone can help...I've just downloaded CC and RAF files are not recognised.....I'm pulling my hair out as I've just signed up to Creative Cloud because my old version LR5 would not read the X70 RAF files.
Any ideas please?
My name is Bartek, i live in Lodz, one of the cities in Poland.
I'd like to say "hello" to all users of this forum and of course to users of FUJIFILM cameras! I'm really pleased to meet all of you
A year ago I got interested in photography. First, i learned taking photos with my sisters' Nikon d3100. In December last year i bought my first digital camera. I've chosen Fuji x30 because of few reasons:
-superb retro look
I thought that this camera is just adjustable for an completly amateur...
i think that this is great choice for beginners like me
So... I still learn photography with this small piece of electronic device and I'm still in love with this camera (In fact, i'd like to hold it in my hands all days)
After few months I know pros and cons, fuji x30 let me find out my favourite focal lenghts, etc. with this camera i could practice portraits, sport, landscape etc.
I'm interested in street photography and I learn to taking "hip shots" on the street.
I know that with this camera i can't be a pixel peeper, but instead of this i just... taking photos and have fun!
Here, below some of my photos.

I'd really appreciate any comments!!
p.s. sorry for my poor English
A few from the second outing with the 35mm f/2. I really like this a lot. While I like its speed, quietness and positiveness I also really like its rendering. It's a keeper.

I edited this in Iridient Developer and was amazed in just how much detail that program is able to pull out of the X-Trans files as compared to Lightroom! It's like the program reveals the true potential of X-trans files. I've been pretty satisfied with 20X30 prints from the X-Trans II sensor (16MP) developed with Iridient and wish that i had a larger printer to see how far i could push this file!

I have an XE2, XP1, Xp2 and now X70 and never had a good reason to thank my screen protector ...until today. After a sail, when I placed the X70 in what I thought was a safe spot, I picked it up to capture dolphins passing and to my horror saw several large scratches on the screen. Trying to be stoic I shot away. Getting home I discovered that my Gilrajavy BBar protector had done its job.
