Auto Focus Thoughts Anyone?

Today, 02:55 PM

Posted by doclamb in X-E1 and X-E2 Discussion

When I'm shooting for my Fly Fishing Dreams Calendar I often shoot scenes like this one with the subject off to one side of the frame. When I'm shooting wide (usually) I like to move the Focus Square to the subject rather than focus and reframe while holding the shutter down. The AF-L also works great for this as well so the Focus Plane doesn't move away from the subject and I don't have to reframe. So has anyone used the Auto Focus Option? I'm having a hard time determining it's real value over the Spot Focusing with the Square. For quick action shots it might be quite useful as it is on my Nikon D7100.Attached File  _DSC1642.jpg   172.08KB   1 downloads

X-Pro1 and 14mm f/2.8

Posted by Gomosan in X-Pro1 Discussion
I searched this great forum but only found different statements. I have a Pro1 with 18-55 and 35mm. I would like to get the 14/2.8 but I do not know how the OVF is going to work with that lens: will I get a crop image (yellow arrows in the four corners) or will I see the full image?
Thanks a lot for your help.

EF-20 Flashgun: How "Clever" Is It?

Today, 01:33 PM

Posted by Hypo in Fuji X Flash Photography

Hi,

 

I keep hearing/reading that cameras like the X100 series make very clever use of the built in flash to do a good job of fill-in flash when needed.

 

I'm thinking of buying an EF-20 flashgun for my X-Pro (and perhaps other X-bodies). It's not the highest spec or capable of the Fuji range but it is small, powerful enough and probably will meet my simple needs (especially since it can do bounce and has a built in diffuser).

 

Question is: does anyone out there know whether the external flashguns perform as well as the built-in units? (i.e. has Fuji put the degree of sophistication into their operation?)

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Keith.

Finding the perfect backpack woes. Am I alone?

Today, 12:57 PM

Posted by duvinclunk in Fuji X Accessories

So for the last few years I have been on the hunt for the perfect backpack. Since converting fully to mirrorless I haven't been able to track down this elusive perfect backpack and am starting to think it doesn't exist. Maybe I'm just too picky on my bag selection. For most travel purposes or hiking I want a backpack, not a shoulder bag. I have a few beefs with the current bag options. One of the main ones is that I don't want a camera bag that looks like a camera bag. Lowepro, Tamrac, Case Logic, Manfrotto, etc. can all be spotted a mile away as a camera backpack. I'd rather not paint a target on my back when I'm out and about. It also seems because of the history of the DSLR, most backpacks are way too huge. Mirrorless is small and doesn't need the space that a DSLR bag needs. It seems like bag companies are still designing bags for DSLRs or for people with mirrorless that feel it necessary to carry every single piece of photo equipment they own. We need just a small space reserved for a small body, two lenses, and maybe a flash. There are a few companies that offer a few smaller bags but generally its easy to spot them as camera bags or the access to the gear requires taking the bag off and laying it on the ground. The other thing that irks me is that I find an awesome bag and then once I start finding pictures of it I find out it is a sling (while great for swinging and getting the camera they're uncomfortable to wear with equipment and for long periods of time.) I have even considered and talked to a few tailors about buying two sling bags, cutting off the shoulder straps, and making a backpack out of one of them. I would just love a backpack that is smaller, maybe looks like an outdoor-sy backpack, isn't obvious there is a camera inside, and has easy and neat access to the camera without removing the bag completely. Am I along here?

 

End rant.

Hello from Ireland

Today, 12:55 PM

Posted by Eskerman in Members - Introductions

Hello to all on the Fuji Forum from a die hard Canon user.. slowly changing over to Fuji

 

I have spent a long time researching all sorts of cameras - too long. I have been mostly Canon user - DSLR 7D and 40D on prime Canon lenses - love therm all. I have always purchased new in the digital camera world and invest in good glass. I also enjoy Film Shooting - and love my Mamiya RB-67 Pro SD "tank" kit, my Olympus OM2 and my old Canon 5 which is a stunning camera with a great auto focusing system - still working 100% after many years

 

They all have one thing in common - large and heavy and i decided to shift to a more range finder type camera - had a Canon G15 and I didn't like it. Was very close to buying a Ricoh GR and a mate lent me his X100S and I just got hooked. I didn't need "Ken Rockballs" opinion. That X100S is an amazing piece of kit however my local camera shop has a deal on the X-Pro1 with 18mm and 27mm lenses I couldn't walk away from it.

 

I also prefer metal body cameras - that plastic stuff just doesn't cut it for me, and I like real viewfinders...  I was looking at the Fuji X-M1 and whilst it is packed with goodies I just couldn't handle the plastic - not knocking that camera by the way - but I'm sure there are plenty in this forum that understand my point 

 

I did research the X-Pro1 and for me it ticks all my boxes for my budget and shooing needs.

 

The DSLRs may gather a little dust now..!

 

Regards

 

Paul 

 

I am expecting my X-Pro1 this week..

First post!

Posted by BPARKER in Fuji X Photos

Been reading this forum since I got my X-E2 in December last year.  I've learned alot since then, seeing as how I've never even owned so much as a point and shoot camera before this.  I ended up selling my 18-55mm and bought a 35mm and 60mm during that big sale back in February. I some how knew I would enjoy the hobby of photography and here's just a few shots that I thought you might enjoy.

 

 

Everything was processed in Lightroom using some of my own settings.

My X-T1 is in my hands far more often than my D600. I break out my D600 just to blow the dust off. I'm keeping my D600 just in case I want to make a large prints. (like I'll ever do that )

I was wondering; how large can we go with a 16Mpx image?
And how is it done?

I own OnOne's PPS with it's Perfect Resize, but haven't had the need to
use it.

Has anyone tried this Opteka 85mm f/1.8 lens?

Today, 10:18 AM

Posted by jon595 in Adapted Lens Discussion

I'm looking for a compact manual short telephoto lens to use on my X-T1.  I've run across this on Amazon, Opteka 85mm f/1.8 and was  curious if anyone had any first hand experience with it.  It looks like it could be a nice little addition to the bag with an adapter, but reviews are few.

 

Any thoughts?  Thanks.

Piccure+ anyone?

Today, 05:42 AM

Posted by ishootyouDOTcom in Fuji X Post Processing

I came across this new plugin Piccure+ claiming to be able to turn water into wine, that is, unsharp into tac sharp images. I wouldn't give it a second thought if there hadn't been some very positive comments on the net so far, but I would like to hear the honest opinion of fellow Fujistas.

 

I did some testing today (they offer a free 14 day trial) and to me it is neither fish nor flesh. The applied sharpening does look better than what other tools offer, however to me an image that isn't tac sharp will never be any good, whatever I throw at it in post. 

 

Also please don't comment until you tried it yourself - I had a very harsh opinion until I gave it a try and it proved to be wrong. It is really better than one might expect, but is it good?

 

Can't wait to read what you guys think of it :)

X100T - loose focus ring

Today, 04:32 AM

Posted by arkona in X100, X100S and X100T Discussion

I just got a X100T and noticed that the focus ring on the lens has some side clearance to the left and right (a bit less than 1 mm). Focusing works perfectly and everything else feels very sturdy but this play on the focus ring is quite irritating and makes me wonder if I should return it. Does anybody else have this with a X100 series camera?

(UK) X100T free tele conversion lens offer

Today, 03:54 AM

Don't know if this is on anywhere else but just spotted this this morning. Free tele conversion lens when you buy an X100T with a wide conversion lens. 

 

http://www.fujifilm....ns/model/x100t/

 

I can't find any details as to how the offer works, whether it comes with the camera or you have to send for it as the more information link takes you to the camera information page at the moment. If you're buying now it's worth knowing about and if you discover how it works please post!

Fujifilm Phils. - awesome service

Today, 03:18 AM

Posted by bongtris in General Photography Talk
Bought an black x100t a few days ago. Realized that the that the 4way controller specifically the right button is a bit stiff.

Contacted the store where i bought the camera. They told me i have to go to directly to fuji to have it repaired.

Went there this afternoon and also brought my x100 to repair a hotshoe problem.

Compalined about the stiff button. They told me it will take 3-5 days to repair or replace.(i think they will have to consult higher management for approval)

Lo and behold the guy who is assisting me handed me a brand new silver x100t for me to use while waiting for feedback on my unit. Never had this superb customer service with any gadget i bought.

Also i only paid 200 pesos(about $4.50) diagnostic fee for my x100. Which is deductible to costs for repairs on my x100.
