X20 OVF issue: blurry, brownish hue

Today, 08:55 AM

Posted by ShadmanAJ in X10, X20 and X30 Discussion

Hi, I'm new to the forums and I'm hoping I'm not breaking any rules.

My X20's viewfinder is acting up (shutter 8200+ and owned for more than a year and half).

Symptoms: There is a brownish hue with blurriness all over. And instead of small segments lighting up with green, the whole thing is displaying green light.

Yes I have tested the diopter, and I'm positive it's not an issue with that.

The camera is functioning fine with the screen though.

Any tips for fixing it are welcome.

macro lens

Today, 08:13 AM

Posted by bs0604 in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion

this is probably already covered somewhere in the forum.

I would like to get a macro lens for my X-Pro1 (soon to be xpro2???).

Forgetting about extensions, it seems that the choices are the Fuji 60 mm or the Zeiss 50 mm.


forgetting about price, can somewhere compare/contrast these 2 macro lenses to help me make a choice.

Samyang lens, someone have tried them?

Today, 08:08 AM

Posted by maroo in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion


                Have someone tried the Samyang lens?!

                What do you think in general about those lenses!?

                In particular, I saw the 85 mm 1.4 a really good price, and I’m interested to know if you think is a good lens for portrait or other use.

                Thanks in advance.

Flash issue

Today, 07:05 AM

Posted by Jan68 in X-Pro1 Discussion

Hi, i'm using my X-Pro1 for a while now, no issues so far......... last night I had an indoor shoot, mounted the EF-42 flash and the flash did not fire. Checked the Q-menu and saw that the flash-symbol shows "no flash", but I can't change it...... what am I doing wrong? I switched to my X-E1 and all worked fine, so it's not the flash (it's almost new and it worked on the X-Pro1 before).


What am I missing?

DicaPac WP-S3 Underwater housing

Today, 04:06 AM

Posted by bekltierney in Fuji X Accessories

Well, after tentatively purchasing the DicaPac for my X-E1 I headed over to the Solomon Islands for a brief holiday. First test was a brief swim in the sea, and the performance of the housing was as wanted. No leakage and I got some shots that would have resulted in a wet camera otherwise, and I had a test run for snorkelling. Next up, in the water with some local kids jumping in and splashing around. Snorkelling was the real reason I invested in the housing, so in we went. I made sure I thoroughly sealed the housing and then headed in. I found I couldn't get my 18-55mm lens to stay at 55mm, so the pictures weren't close up. Never mind, the quality was good. Controls are a bit tricky to change, particularly anything in the quick menu as the command dial is used and this is difficult to wind with the housing on. Next time I went in I ensured everything was set as wanted prior to putting the housing on. The lens problem was solved through using a small cloth and putting it at the front of the camera so the lens didn't get knocked and thus stayed extended at 55mm. Overall, a great little investment that allowed me to bring home some underwater photos of both fish and people. I found the DicaPac to be good value for money and functional to use. As tips, always make sure you seal the bag properly as the snap-lock seal is not waterproof otherwise. The bag was much easier to put on by taking the lens of and attaching once the body was in.

Hoping someone has a great photo shoot with this accessory.

First contact with XT1. Problem with liking the viewfinder.

Today, 03:53 AM

Posted by kneops in X-T1 Discussion

I hope some people can clarify this for me.

Yesterday I went to a local shop to see and feel the XT-1 for the first time, after reading about it for weeks.

The guy in the shop gave me the camera, I looked through the viewfinder and I was so dissapppointed... But perhaps he didn't get some settings right.

For instance, the view was so 'tv-like', a bit too much to my taste, and I couldn't see where I was focussing at.

I'm used to working with Nikon camera's, so I saw this square in the middle, pointed it somewhere, pressed the release buttons half way, and had absolutely no idea if it was focussing. No visible affirmation, no sound. I was set on autofocus though, because when I held my hand in front of the camera I could see the autofocus working, but when pointing it somewhere else, a bit further away, I was totally unsure what was happening.


Doesn't that square get green or something when the focussing is right? The only thing I could see getting green was the horizontal line in the middle. But when using my Nikon I can clearly see the object getting sharp when I point at it, but looking through the XT-1 viewfinder I could only guess what would become sharp :(

Hi everyone. So I'm new at this forum, although I'm looking at X- camera's for quite some time. But not decided yet on which one, therefor joined this forum. At the moment I'm working with Nikon camera's and lenses and working as a professional photographer. Mainly news and events, sometimes portraits, and for my own interest animals, nature and still life. And soon I hope to share a few pictures with you made by Fuji :)

Shutter speed range for using OIS

Today, 12:37 AM

Posted by XtJerry in About the Fuji X Forum

At what handheld speeds should IOS be used?   I always (or try to remember to) turn off IOS when on tripod.  I usually leave in on with a monopod or when hand holding for a shot.


As I remember with Nikon camera, the general recommendation is to turn off VR (NIkon speak for OIS) from about 1/500th or faster.


Is this the same with the Fuji OIS?


That is, is there a certain speed at the high end where OIS may cause blurring or other problems if left on?


Thanks, in advance
