A fancy strap was given to me for my birthday.

Today, 06:45 PM

Posted by Savas in Fuji X Accessories

It was nice to get a fancy strap for my birthday. Something that I wouldn’t have sprung for myself. It’s depicted here in an image that I posted in, “How my X100S looks Like.”

 

p418090261-4.jpg

 

 

But wouldn’t you know? The next day, my wife and I go visit a north shore arboretum on Long Island and I come across this sign.

 

 

IMG_2118a.jpg

 

 

 

It wasn’t so much the sign, but for the cord that the sign was hung with.

 

 

IMG_2119a.jpg

 

 

On close inspection, it’s starting to look mighty similar to my fancy camera strap! A little too similar!!

 

 

IMG_2117a.jpg

 

 

This could be the rope that is used in the Lance strap, for all I know….

 

What a disconcerting laugh among my wife and I.   ;)

There is Wildlife, and Landscape, and Macro... but none for Nature, that are not landscapes...and not really close enough for Macro

 

So, I Started this on going topic for all to share their non landscape nature images.

 

Here is a local tree (I am terrible at remembering different kind of tress) that just bloomed about a week ago.

Your favorite travel lens.

Today, 02:31 PM

Posted by kianxvlvm in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion

Going to NYC next week and wanted to pick up a new lens for the trip. 

 

I currently use a X-Pro1 with a 35mm 1.4. I used this setup on my last trip but I want to try something different this time around. 

 

I'm currently looking at the following:

14mm F2.8

18mm F2

23mm F1.4

56mm F1.2

 

I know they are all completely different so please no bashing on the fact that theres a 42mm gap. 

 

The main reason I put the 18mm on the list is because of how small it is compared to the others. I really like the 56mm F1.2 but I think I want something closer than my 35mm for this trip. Obviously as you can tell I can't decide. 

 

Any feedback or suggestions are much appreciated :)

X20 Build Quality

Today, 01:56 PM

Posted by Dolphin in X10 and X20 Discussion
Further to my initial great impressions of the build quality of my new X20 I was rather dismayed to find that it would not turn off.

I then found that the entire front lens barrel was loose and coming away from the camera body.

Further investigation showed that the lens barrel is cheap plastic and not machined metal.

With the barrel removed it can be seen that the whole front end of the camera is plastic.

Having looked online it would seem that there is a history of this problem going back to the X10.

My dealer has acknowledged that this is a known problem and has offered me a full refund or credit against another camera.

At the moment I feel reluctant to go for another X20 given that my first one had only been used very lightly - how would it stand up to serious use.

My son is an engineer with Airbus - when I showed him the lens problem his comment was 'Bad design Dad, the materials are not up to the loading put upon them'.

Any thoughts?

Strange behaviour with 60mm and C focus mode

Today, 12:49 PM

Posted by BTBPhoto in X-Pro1 Discussion

Had a very strange issue while out at a country fair. I put the camera in aperture priority and focus set to continuous focus mode - C.

 

The 60mm seemed to be constantly trying to focus, which I accepted to be OK as it was in C. But,

 

After about 3 secs through the view finder it told me to switch off the camera and turn back on again. This happened about 5-6 times.

I found by switching the camera back to normal focusing and then switching back to C worked occasionally, but wasn't a good solution as I was shooting moving horses. I also tried covering the end of the lens to stop it hunting.. It kept prompting me to switch off and on again and again..

 

In the end I decided to switch back to normal focusing, and to my surprise found the 60mm focussed pretty quick on the rapid horses.

 

Curious to see if anyone else had this type of issue.. ??

 

In the end I did manage to get a few decent shots, but was very strange behaviour

Snagged an xt1

Posted by hoobashoot in X-T1 Discussion
Out of stock everywhere. I called bh and they said none in stock I then checked the website 1 hour later and it showed they had 1 so I bought it. Paid for 2 day shipping because I cannot wait to get it. Man did I get lucky! How fast is the focus on 18-55 compared to the X-E1?

Cable Release "necessary"?

Today, 10:44 AM

Posted by JDanvers in X-T1 Discussion

Question: I've got an X-T1 and am considering purchasing the cable release for it so as to do some long'ish exposures with some dark'ish filters (water, rivers, waterfalls, etc ...)

Is the cable really necessary though when one can simply talk to the camera via iPhone? Ie; I meter a scene "on exposure", then fire up my little app on my iphone that tells me what exposure I should use for a given dark filter. I haven't played yet with the iPhone and bulb mode on the Fuji but I'm assuming that there is no reason why I shouldn't be able to just "bulb" it via the cell ... ?

Anyone done this or is there in fact a "need" for the physical cable release?

Fotasy Canon FD Lens to Fujifilm XF Mount Camera Adapter

Today, 08:54 AM

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

I just picked up this adapter and wanted to know who else is using FD glass with this particular adapter and if you have run across any issues.

 

Here are the lenses I have to chose from

 

---->Canon 35/2, 50/1.8, 35-105/3.5 macro 2 touch, 135/3.5, 200/2.8

---->Sigma 35-70/2.8-4

 

I also have a few extension tubes FD25 and 50 to play with.

My also have a Canon F-1 that hasn't had film in for a while

 

What are your experiences and what do I need to know without reading the 4000 blog posts out there?

 

Thanks, Todd

Lens thoughts for Fuji newbie

Today, 08:27 AM

Posted by hypostatic in X-T1 Discussion

Hi everyone, I've started buying in to the Fuji system, and I'd like to hear your thoughts on my lens plan. I haven't received my X-T1 yet, so this is all based on what I've heard/read. 

 

First two lenses: 

 

XF23 f/1.4 --> will use this for low light and shots that I'd like to have the best quality; also some astrophotography

XF27 f/2.8 --> this will be my 9-5, everyday lens; taking it off will be an intentional decision (bought this already)

 

When they release: 

 

XF fast wide prime --> this will be my go-to for astrophotography and landscapes; possibly low light (see below)

Zeiss Touit 2.8/50 --> as awesome as the XF56 looks, I really do need a 1:1 macro, and this does that and portraits

XF16-55 f/2.8WR --> my 9-5 during travels/hikes (still switching to fast prime at night); water-resistance helps

 

***

 

I'm waiting on the fast wide prime as every review suggests that the XF18 f/2 doesn't exactly cut it. I think this covers the focal ranges I'm interested in (super wide, 35-41mm, and macro) pretty well. The only hesitation I have is with the XF23. I need at least one lens good for low light, and I can't help but wonder whether $900 is too much for that given the fact that I'm definitely buying the fast wide prime. I like the 41mm equivalent look a lot, and wouldn't necessarily feel like I'm missing much with the 35mm. Having said that, the XF23 is arguably the second best lens in the line-up, and I would likely choose it over the XF27 for photography-oriented day-trips. Thoughts?

Well, that is kind of a lie.  Home is to the right and down about 1600 feet.  :)

In this image is outskirts of the closest city to the town of 300 that i live in on Newfoundland's west coast.  We're very fortunate to live in such a scenic place where the mountains rise out of the sea to elevations of over 2500 feet.

Shot on the X-T1 with the 35mm f1.4.
