Missing the X100T

Yesterday, 05:45 PM

I bought the X100S as a second camera to the X-T1 system thinking I could use something smaller to take around. Liked the camera despite the learning curve but couldn't appreciate the AF system and finally sold it. Then got an X100T and started really liking it. Finally sold it again as I felt that I was getting too lazy to use the X-T1 and the lenses. Now I think I'm missing it again and seriously thinking about getting it again. Am I the only one who's gone through this dilemma? Don't think it's GAS as I could be trying something new instead.

16-55/2.8 - thoughts?

Yesterday, 05:40 PM

The 16-55 was the first lens I purchased with the X-T1. Not sure if it was because I was new to the system, but somehow, I did not like the results I was getting. The handling was also not the best with the weight. Now I'm 8 months into the X-T1 and getting great results. I sold the 16-55 early on and went for the 18-135, 10-24 and a few primes. However, I'm still having second thoughts about trying the 16-55 again. I found the initial keep rate quite poor, especially in comparison to the 18-135 with it's fantastic OIS. Any input from users that are using the 16-55 would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Pentax DSLR as great Fuji Sidekick

Yesterday, 04:10 PM

Posted by beakhammer in Photos

As I sink deeper into the swamp GAS of adapted lens mania I find myself greatly appreciating the many great old Pentax manual focus lenses.  They are small and sharp, often inexpensive, and make very nice images.  As I accumulated a small range of Pentax K-mount lenses it occurred to me to look at used Pentax digital cameras, since they are backward compatible with all the old manual lenses.  I found a Pentax K5iis for a reasonable price and liked that it uses a 16mp sensor with no anti-aliasing filter.  Nearly the exact Bayer counterpart to the Fuji X-Trans sensor.  I like to have variety in my image-making tools, and have been wanting to see how a DSLR felt to work with after two years of mirrorless immersion.

 

 Working with the Pentax has been very interesting.  The user interface is pretty good, but not as good as the Fuji mirrorless cameras in several respects. However, I find the optical viewfinder a pleasure to use (though harder to focus).  My keeper rate is lower with the Pentax, though my two years with the mirrorless cameras has made me a much better photographer, better able to home in on the best exposure parameters, and as I get used to the DSLR it is starting to work for me.  Also, for some images I really like the solid, earthy look of the Bayer sensor files.  One more perk is that the camera is very weather-proof, and I don't have an X-T1.  A weatherproof camera and cheap lenses means I don't hesitate to go out and shoot in stormy weather.

 

In any case, an alternative camera which shares lenses with my Fuji cameras is a lot of fun and has very practical applications.  It also allows me to compare how the same lens works with two or three different sensors, which I find interesting.  It is a source of sadness that I cannot use my fabulous Fuji lenses on other cameras.

 

A lot of folks combine 35mm Rangefinders with Fuji cameras, sharing lenses in a similar way.

Iridient Developer Export Options

Yesterday, 01:15 PM

Hi,

 

I just picked up an X Pro 1, a xf16, xf35 & xf90

 

I have moved over from Canon.

 

I was really horrified with the raw conversion, and the sharpening and NR results in LR CC.

 

I googled, Iridient seems best, tried it, found vastly better sharpening and NR, but...

 

Under 'process image and export' under 'convert to format' is see only Tiff,  Jpeg, Jpeg 2000, PNG, Photoshop and clearly no DNG option.

 

Am I missing something? Is it because I am just testing in the demo mode?

 

I would gladly pay the cost of the software for the quality of the sharpening and NR, but I want to bring the image back into LR CC and finish my edit. If I cannot re-export as a DNG (or a RAF) then I have hit a problem.

 

I would really appreciate any advice that anyone may have.

 

Thanks

Dan

Hot Summer Fun

Yesterday, 12:19 PM

Take temperatures in the high 90's, a swimming pool, some kids, an X-T1, a 50-140, a Canon Speedlite 580EXII, Elinchrom Skyports and a softbox on a stand and you have a recipe for some fun photos!

X100T Noisy EVF Issue

Yesterday, 12:18 PM

Hi

I've had the X100T for about a week now and seem to have an issue with the EVF. If I look through the EVF in doors with the Aperture say at F8 the image is fairly clear and bright

However if I press the shutter halfway to focus the image becomes very noisy especially in shadow areas. If I release the shutter it returns to a clear image again.

 

Now if I set the aperture to F2 and press the shutter halfway there is hardly any noise to I'm thinking its trying to compensate for exposure or something.

I use to have the X100 and I can't remember that happening the EVF was always a clear image whatever the lighting conditions 

 

I'm just trying rule out if there is a problem with my X100T so I can get it replaced.

So my question is ... Do all X100T's have this problem?

$158 XC 50-230mm II? Sure, Throw It In the Bag!

Yesterday, 10:01 AM

In the last couple weeks, I've had two lenses tap me on the shoulder to say "buy me!" Basically, it was the xf 35 and now the zoom which were both lenses I was not considering in any way adding to the kit. But at the prices I came across, I simply could not pass them up.

Oddly enough, they have both proven to be worth every penny I paid.

Back to the 50-230 OIS mk2. I found an overseas seller offering them at $158 with expedited shipping included. These are selling for basically $399 at all the major retailers. I had played around with the thought of having a super light, relatively compact super tele option for my little Fuji. This thing would offer an effective range of 75-345ish which is fantastic.

Considering the price, and some of the stuff I had read about its construction, optics, etc when compared to the 55-200, I was not expecting much. I was simply happy to have a compact, autofocusing, stabilized means of getting decent shots at 350mm for the price of basically nothing.

What I didn't expect was that I would actually like it. Sure, part of my astonishment was based on my very low expectations for it. But aside from that, it is actually a very solidly performing lens considering it is the junk telephoto zoom in the lineup. Take into consideration that most of the other companies also have a apsc plastic construction zoom in this range that are all generally pretty crappy and this one starts to really be a gem in many respects.[attachment=51141:image.jpg]image.jpg

XF 55-200 auto focus issue

Yesterday, 08:45 AM

Hi everyone

A newbie here but I could do with some advice please.

After the most recent Firmware update, my autofocus on the 55-200 (I have the X-E1 body) has totally gone up the spout. I now get confirmed focus on about 1 in 10 half depressions of the shutter button. I find it most frustrating as the lens has given perfect service for more than 18 months.

I have tried to uninstall the Firmware update but can't find out how.

Does anyone have a suggestion on what I can do please.

I have been a lurker on this forum for years but as everything (up to now) has worked perfectly I have just enjoyed reading all the articles.

I am really frustrated at my favourite lens now becoming unreliable as my favourite style is the good old snap shot.

Any help or comment would be greatly appreciated iated.

Thank you to all
