Custom setup question on x-e2

Today, 02:38 AM

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

This morning I thought I would start setting up the custom settings (C1-C7). It appears that custom settings will not allow the file format to be sticky. For example I was trying to set C2 to be b&w jpg and raw. If I am shooting raw then decide to go to the custom menu C2 it will still be just raw and not b&w jpg and raw.


Perhaps I am missing something here. 


It seems to me that custom setting should hold the file type(s) you want to set the custom setting for. If not I really think the custom settings functions is very limited in its usability.


Hopefully I'm doing something wrong here..

Did you buy X-E2, return it and stick with your X-E1?

Today, 01:19 AM

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

Over on DPR forums I read some owners who upgraded from X-E1 to an X-E1 returned their E2s, saying that they just didn't like the differtent colour reproduction of the E2 compared to the E1. I can see for myself that the tone curve and JPEGS look different, and I can see the plastic skin smoothing that seems to hap[pen in E2 high ISO JPEG portraits.


But I was surprised that even some raw shooters said they didn't like E2 raws compared to E1 raws.


I'm a 100% raw shooter.


What is the feeling over here on these forums? Has anyone here gone this route of returning an E2 and sticking to an E1 out of IQ/colour issues?


I'm asking as I am thinking of swapping out my E1 for an E2 for the better AF, but I LOVE the colors from my E1 in Capture One and Lightroom and am concerned about not getting the same great Fuji colours with an E2 without extra PP work?

Solar eclipse

Today, 12:56 AM

Posted by wbp in Fuji X Photos

Shot about 1600 images of today's solar eclipse to make a video. Still working on that but here's a still from close to the maximum eclipse. Fujifilm X-T1 with a Stellarvue SVR-90 "Raptor" telescope (630mm focal length f7). The detail in the sunspot group is amazing. Largest spot group I've seen in years.

The restoration was in part funded by public donation with dedication plaques. My father-in-law was a park warden in Kelvingrove so it seemed fitting to contribute so his and his wife's names were here .

I had a day off today but the weather was poor. So I visited Kelvingrove gallery and museum. Hope I'm not infringing copyright.


John Reid by Van Gogh. A wee ginger Glaswegian who was an art dealer and friend of Van Gogh.




Salvador Dali - Christ of St. John of the cross. This is hard to get because it's in a poorly lit small room.




Charles Rennie Mackintosh - The Wassail. I wish this was at a better viewing height though PS skew helps greatly.




Margaret MacDonald - The May Queen




Father and Daughter - this is a plaster statue but is lit really harshly so I've tried a black and white image

HDMI liveview output ?

Yesterday, 02:15 PM

Posted by Sam66 in X-M1 and X-A1 Discussion

Does anyone know if you can get a live view out from the HDMI port on the X-M1 or X-A1?


If you connected to an external monitor could you see the view from the camera or is HDMI only used in playback mode?

2 lens choice for holiday

Yesterday, 02:10 PM

Posted by macvisual in X-Pro1 Discussion
Hi all, off on holiday from the start of November for a week away to Fuerteventura.

I don't want to bring all four of my Fuji X lenses as it would be too bulky etc, so here's my current lens line up for my X-Pro1 body;
XF 10-24mm -- XF 35mm -- XF 60mm -- XF 55-200mm.

I was think about bringing both the XF 10-24mm and the XF 60mm.

Any advice appreciated.

Monitors and Color

Yesterday, 01:49 PM

Posted by beakhammer in General Photography Talk

I notice that when I look at other people's photos on my iMac or iPad some look great and some have awful colors and many fall in between.  My own photos color gamut always looks good to me on my own monitor.  When I view my own images on another monitor the colors are not always as good.  My monitor hasn't been calibrated, it is set to Mac defaults.


I wonder how many of the images that I see with colors that look off to me were simply processed on a monitor that doesn't match the colors on my monitor, as opposed to being processed by a person with poor taste, color-blindness, or poor skills?


I wonder how many people think I have no color-sense because my monitor differs from theirs?


I wonder how many photographers whose color sense I admire are simply using a newish Mac monitor (matching mine).


I wonder if images made on properly calibrated monitors look great, or slightly off, on my monitor?


It might be instructive to post images with all the monitor, color-space, how (or if) calibrated, and post-processing data listed so that we all might see how they look to us.


Please post images with colors that look good to you, not necessarily crazy colors, but colors that look "right" on your monitor.  I don't want to make critical judgements, just to see how "right" those colors may look on my monitor, to me.  All very subjective of course, but a place to start.


 This image was processed from an XPro1 RAW file in LR 5.6, working in RGB, and I was working on a recent model iMac, not calibrated.  Shot at ISO 200, f8 and 1/180 with the XF35mm lens.  This is all blue and silver.  I'll post something warmer later.

Shutter Button & On/Off Switch Sticking/Stuck

Yesterday, 01:26 PM

Posted by Islander in X-T1 Discussion

I love my X-T1.  I've been shooting with it for about eight months and couldn't be happier.  However, I live on an island and do a lot of shooting in a saltwater environment: kayaking, boating, surf photography, etc.  I do my best to keep salt spray off the camera but do not always succeed.  Over time, my on/off switch has become very difficult to operate (now nearly impossible without a applying a lever of some kind).  And while my shutter button takes photos reliably, the auto-focus function is very difficult to control and I can only get it to activate about 50% of the time.  I've tried cleaning the mechanism without success and I now think I'll likely need to take it apart to clean it or replace it entirely.  Ug.  Does anyone else have experience with a similar problem or have any experience/advice for a remedy?

X-E1 not up for a short fall to the ground

Yesterday, 01:12 PM

Posted by Collin Smith in X-E1 and X-E2 Discussion

I was using my X-E1 as a second camera a few weeks ago and it found its way free falling to a sidewalk.  I was changing lenses and had it in my bag, I turned and somehow it fell out.  I just heard it hit the ground.  When I picked it up and put it to my eye to see if it was still working, I could smell that something got burned up inside.  Everything was black and nothing responded.  I changed to another battery and still nothing.  I have since sent it off to be repaired (waiting to hear what can be done).  Has anyone else had this happen and able to get it repaired?  Thankfully, I had a 3rd camera in my car to become my 2nd camera the rest of the day.

Portland skyline blue hour panorama

Yesterday, 12:48 PM

Posted by ultragravy in Fuji X Photos

My first attempt at a panorama on a tripod so I thought I'd try something simple,  a blue hour shot of the Portland skyline.  



Used the always superb 14mm @ f8 15sec  ISO 200.  I shot this about 30 mins after sunset, 3 shots, processed in LR5, stitched in PTgui.



I thought I was happy with the result, but after looking at it, I'm thinking I could have used a 23mm lens for more magnification and perhaps shot it in portrait orientation?



Any an all criticism/ suggestions would be welcome



Thanks for looking

Hello everyone!

I have a JJC LH-X100 on my Fuji X100. I'd like guidance as to whether it's possible to fit a polarising filter onto the front of the lens hood.


Many thanks
