I have set my X-T1 to Release/Focus Priority on day 1. I did notice a while back that camera could, actually, shoot an out of focus images. So today I went on a walk and squeezed a few completely blurry images. Came home and repeated again (see attached). Does anyone know and can explain what makes the camera think that it found focus? Is it me and my strong ESP affecting it? Thank you in advance!!
P.S. Sorry if it was already discussed!
Guys trying to get my head round a setting, on my xt2 I have auto ISO enabled, base 200, max 12800, shutter min 125, when I look through viewfinder or screen it displays ISO 12800 all the time even when the shutter is half pressed it never moves from 12800 (my xpro2 diplays the required ISO when half pressed) when I review the picture on my xt2 it shows the correct ISO I.e 200 or whatever, what does yours do please? Appreciate the help
Hello, thanks for letting me join this site and will be posting here a lot from now. I grew up in Buffalo,NY and decided after seeing some videos online about photography and seeing my Dad friend studio that I wanted to become one. I had plans on buying Nikon when I first got into photography a couple of months ago but bought a Fuji x-e1 and Tamron 45mm f1.8vc. Love the setup.
First you make it, then you try to blow into it. More here.
I have two suggestions for new lenses for the (excellent!) Fuji lineup.
First I'd love to see a 16mm f/2.8 (or f/2), WR lens. I'm sure the 1.4 is a great lens, but I want to keep my Fuji system as small and light as possible.
Second, I'd be the first in line to buy a 16mm shift lens. NOT a shift/tilt, as these are more expensive and in shooting architecture I almost never have occasion to use the tilt function on the 24mm tilt/shift lens I own. If I could get 10mm of shift with a Fuji-quality lens, I'd sell my Sony and the two shift lenses I already have.
Thanks for listening,
A few days ago I picked up a Leica M9 that I sent in for the corroded sensor replacement. Along with the camera I got five lenses; three of which are gone. I still have the pair of Zeiss Biogons and I couldn't resist shooting a couple of pictures with the XT1. Even though they're Japanese Zeiss lenses they have the feel of a vintage all-metal lens barrel. The color is also superb. It's a pity I can't get the true field of view but they were fun to play with.
The horizontal shot is the 21 and the vertical is the 25.
Is it me being stupid or have they now completely done away with the silent mode option?
I know it can still be turned off in each individual menu but it was really convenient being able to choose it through the Q menu.
Am i going mad?
I was out shooting this weekend with my X100t, and noticed some odd behavior. With Auto ISO set, shooting aperture priority, I expect the camera to lower the shutter speed below the minimum when conditions demand it. But it did some weird stuff:
1. In very dark conditions, wide open at f/2, the camera would not go slower than 1/50 sec shutter speed no matter what I did. It was at ISO 3200, and the minimum shutter was 1/125 -- again, I expect the camera to choose a slower speed to maintain proper exposure, which it did, but it stopped doing so at 1/50. Changing the exposure compensation dial had no effect - the shutter stayed at 1/50 (and the photo was three stops underexposed). Switching to manual fixed it.
2. Same thing happened this morning, but with the max ISO at 800 and the aperture at f/16 to get a sun star, the camera chose 1/50 sec shutter, and underexposed by three or four stops. I didn't notice until I downloaded the raw files.
In every case, the LCD and the EVF showed the proper exposure -- but the camera would not shoot the proper exposure.
Any ideas? Is there a setting that I can't find that tries to maintain a hand-holdable shutter speed? I can easily recreate the issue sitting here at my desk.
Here's the photo from this morning -- again, it looked fine in the EVF:
There are so many things that are marvelous about Manhattan, and any discussion would have to include it's skyscrapers. From my recent trip up, I offer three I'm pretty happy with. I hope you will like them.
The high skyline and Chrysler Building were done with the Fuji 23mm 1.4 R. The Empire State Building from Bryant Park was done with the Zeiss 32mm 1.8.
Having timed things really badly with selling my X-T1 and ordering the X-T2, I've been having a lot of fun with my X70. I miss having a viewfinder, but I'm finding the tilting screen is letting me get shots from angles I'd never attempt with a bigger camera. There's a lot to be said for a relatively tiny camera that can be easily slipped into a pocket...
I've also started having a bit of a play with Aurora HDR Pro (pretty quick for me, it's only taken since last November)...
Despite appearances, this narrow-gauge engine runs on the Brecon Mountain Railway in South Wales.
 Dithered about it for too long....
Sad day. But when will the new model be announced? And more importantly, when will retailers start to heavily discount the x100T?

I took photos using X-T2 in a football game last night. I notice when I took with high ISO (1600 & 3200), the JPG and RAF files have 5 dark across the longer dimension (vertical lines in portrait & horizontal lines in landscape). You can see from the example file here - pay attention to the grass surface. Is there something wrong with the sensor?
I was at a ploughing and country show yesterday, good weather and interesting event with horses pulling ploughs as well as some old steam units.
There were also some really interesting characters at the event so a fun time trying to capture elements of the event and some of the people.
I know there has been comments earlier about an x100T update (or lack thereof), but I am happy with what the X100T offers as is. That said, why can't Fuji just give us that in love feeling again with a tiny update with Acros! I will continue to buy their new products as the technology improves, but in the meantime, can I play with Acros on my X100T?
I've recently upped my game equipment-wise, and not coincidentally, sold my house. What are folks doing for insurance?
Safe to say given the responses to a couple of my threads, I'm going with the 16-55 2.8.
Maybe the 18mm f2 too?
I love the auto focus - it's terrific- but, I feel TOO fast for cinematic like focus pulls when one operator is shooting moving picture work. It's a dead giveaway it's on auto with one operator.
I would like to make a feature request in a firmware update for two additional slower modes for continuous auto focusing:
Just "slower" and "slowest"
or maybe "cine", and thin slowest called something like "slow".
The current snappy pull is a dead giveaway and does not look like a typical focus pull for a filmmaker.
Adding these options would be a huge benefit to single-person run and gun operators who shoot short film, documentary etc,
and automagically also enable the director/operator to adjust framing on the fly a bit to better ensure the pull locks onto the intended target . . . .
Adding this feature plus FLOG to the SD card (PLEASE try to keep it 4:2:2!) would make the X-T2 a KILLER machine.
LOVING the XT2 so far.
I've bought an extremely well used Xt1 for an extended extremely low price, just for the fun of having one (again).
The previous owner is a professional portrait photographer and this xt1 is his main workhorse. Having scare all over but there's no technical damage so everything is in good working order.... except....the rubber body cover.
It's in really bad shape! It lost its profile texture, stretches/shrinking in corners and adhesive starting to let go or deteriorates.
So I started to peel everything off and clean up the body and hope I could fix it myself.
But unfortunately it doesn't fit anymore so there's no way I could do this myself. Contacted Fuji service center Germany and they offer to stick new rubber for free, very generous of course but I then my Xt1 will leave the house for minimum 6 weeks, not acceptable LoL
Hi everyone, hope you're all good this fine day.
I've heard a lot about how the most recent update for the xe2 has pretty much changed it into an xt10 in rangefinder form.
In practical terms what does that actually mean? Do all the buttons function as they did before? What has really changed to make people say it's now to all intents and purposes an xt10?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
