Bag for X-system and 15" Laptop

Yesterday, 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?

Yesterday, 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

Yesterday, 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

Yesterday, 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?

Yesterday, 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

Yesterday, 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.

 

E.g.

Event: Motorcycle holiday across Australia

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

 

Now you go...

Best Value 3 Stop ND for XF 35mm

Yesterday, 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!

f11 magazine - the FREE digital magazine for photographers

Yesterday, 02:33 AM

Posted by Richard_R in General Photography Talk

I know that f11 gets a mention from time to time but the new issue has just been released and it's a stunner.

 

If you are not aware f11 is a New Zealand based e-magazine that is produced 11 times a year and is 100% free. It can be read on line or downloaded as a PDF for viewing off line or on tablets. The current issue is #36 and if you want all 35 previous issues are available for download.

 

One of the editors, Tony Bridge is also a Fuji ambassador in NZ so previous issues of f11 have carried good coverage of Fuji X series products at launch time.

 

If you are looking for a read about photography rather than gear analysis and some truly inspirational photos to look at have a look at f11

Canon or Nikon 35mm T&S on Fuji XT-1?

31 Aug 2014

Posted by Fujicron in Adapted Lens Discussion

What do you guys think? I know the Canon has the added tilt feature the Nikon lacks. Optically which is better for my Fuji? Also if I decide to go with the Canon, would it be better to adapt it to EOS mount first? Full disclosure, I shoot EOS along with Fuji.
