Retrospective 20 with the X-t1 with 56mm lens hood

Today, 11:46 AM

Posted by minihessel in X-T1 Discussion

Hello guys.


I know I am crazy, but I have this sickness where I always place the camera in the bag.. I know I probably miss a lot of shots by doing this(?), and I should probably see a doctor.. Anyway, is there anyone here using the retrospective 20? I would like to have the X-t1 with the 56mm 1,2 and lens hood attached. I have the 7, but it is just misses a few cm to be high enough.

Fuji x Pro 1 Lose Lens Mount

Today, 11:07 AM

Posted by SunBoy in About the Fuji X Forum

I just purchased a 55-200mm lens and when I mounted it on the body i found that the lens turns about 1/8th of an inch. It does sit snug in the mount but has this twist. i tried with my 18-55mm lens and i can still twist it. this doesn't seem to affect image quality.


I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this with their Fuji x Pro 1 bodies?

Bag for X-system and 15" Laptop

Today, 10:37 AM

Posted by mountainpix in Fuji X Accessories

I am trying to find a relatively compact, low-profile bag that will hold an X-Pro1, 18mm, 35mm, and 60mm XF lenses, a 15" Macbook Pro with charger cable, and a couple of portable hard drives. That's about it. The only bag I presently have that will do this is a Think Thank Urban Disguise 50, but it's total overkill, with too many flaps, pouches, zippers and extra weight and bulk.


Any suggestions?

Metering? Inconsistencies?

Today, 08:53 AM

Posted by mlcinema in X-T1 Discussion

Hello All,


What metering do you all use? I have tried them all and all have some inconsistencies. I am using an X-T1 and 35mm. Seems like it meters on the right subject sometimes and sometimes not so much. 


Thank you.

X-E2 silver £360 body only from Fuji Refurb

Today, 07:42 AM

Posted by GeorgeSalt in Where to Buy — Deals — Heads Up

A heads-up on a good looking deal on the Fuji refurb shop.  There are currently four silver X-E2 bodies sitting on the refurb shop at £399.98.  Add in the usual 10% discount code for bodies and that's just under £360 each.


If I could justify a second body I think I'd be taking one of these myself.  But I'm not a pro and don't quite see the benefit over my X-Pro1.

Using The Fujifilm Remote App with a Ballhead

Today, 06:52 AM

Posted by fac123 in General Photography Talk

Hi All


A couple of weeks ago i was doing a few landscapes using the X-T1 and the Fujifilm remote app which worked flawlessly.


The only part that let it down was the fact that it doesn't turn into portrait orientation. It was a complete pain trying to compose a shot holding a phone and trying to tighten a ballhead at the same time.  

When using the Remote app the camera is in totally unusable with regards to looking thru the viewfinder etc.


My Tripod is a Manfrotto 190CXPRO4 new version which has an easy link connection where you can connect various manfrotto attachments etc.

I purchased a Manfrotto flexible arm for about £16 and a cheap £4 ballhead off ebay also the phone holder was about £3.

The quality of the ballhead and flexible arm is spot on but the Phone holder is a bit basic.


Now it so easy to compose shots looking at the phone whilst moving the ballhead.


Thanks for looking :)

When is Enough is Enough?

Today, 06:12 AM

Posted by paul szilard in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion

This is my 2nd (and final) lens speculative thread starter.


If you had sufficient funds so that the cost was not limiting, but wanted to be somewhat realistic, when would you say that you had enough lenses for your Fuji body? Would you pine to buy every lens ever released, or would you say that once you have covered your needs, you would stop buying and start shooting?

3 Desert Island Lenses

Today, 06:08 AM

Posted by paul szilard in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion

In the UK there used to be a radio program called Desert Island Disks, where interviewees would choose a small number of records (disks) of music, that they would want if stranded on a "Desert Island" unable to ever get any new records.


So, in similar vain, I put the question to you: If you could only have 3 lenses with you (and one body) can you give us your choices? To make it a little easier, I am not going to fantasize that these are your ONLY lenses, just that you are planning an event, such as a Wedding, or Africa Safari, or trip to Alaska, or whatever, and can only take one body and 3 lenses. Which lenses would you choose? Any combination of zooms or primes permitted and you can list any number of scenarios.



Event: Motorcycle holiday across Australia

Lenses: 10-24mm, 18-55mm and 56mm


Now you go...

Although patterns are abstract I thought to add a separate thread on photos of patterns. I like patterns ever since I had to take math tests. ;-)

Here are some obvious ones. Feel free to add yours! Comments/suggestions always welcome>

Best Value 3 Stop ND for XF 35mm

Today, 03:02 AM

Posted by blackers_92 in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion

Hi All

I have been using the XF 35mm almost exclusively since I purchased it about 6 months ago. I would like the ability to shoot at wider apertures in midday sun (not directly into the sun) as I am attending a few music festivals throughout summer. After a bit of research a 3 stop ND is supposed to be the best solution. I am reluctant to drop big money on one though, as I purchased a B+W Kaesemann Circular MRC Polarizer for my 18-55 that got a tonne of use initially however since purchasing other lenses has sat dormant. Similarly I have the 14mm and decided that I would eventually purchase a Lee Filter System as I could use it across all focal lengths.


But in the meantime I would love people’s recommendations, BHPhoto has some going as cheap as $20 with positive reviews however I think I trust this community more! Ideally something less than AUS $100 that can still be used with the lens hood

Thanks in advance!
