XT1 and GR Facebook pages

Yesterday, 08:38 PM

I love my fuji gear, but I am thinking to order the new GR as well, for just a more of a pocket size walk around camera.

(Maybe a little off topic)

I searched on Facebook for Richo GR pages, and I didn t find any..

I know a lot of FB pages are about X trans cameras, do you know of any specific RIcho ones?

or even outside of FB, some forum like this one would be great to see photos actually taken with the camera I am thinking to buy.

thanks for sharing

X-T10 film simulation

Yesterday, 08:10 PM

Posted by stingrae28 in X-T1 and X-T10

When set in full auto mode, the only film simulations available are provia, monochrome, monochrome with filter options, and sepia.

Is there any way to get velvia or classic chrome without manual mode?

This beach is very shallow and it seems you can walk for days without hitting deep ocean.  We go here a lot and there alwarys seems to be dramatic Sunsets.  One of the by-products of low tide and a shallow beach, great patterns in the sand.  I hope you all enjoy the image as much as I enjoyed capturing it!

Billingham Hadley Digital review

Yesterday, 07:02 PM

So, moving from my dSLR (Canon 7D) to Fuji, I find my existing camera bags are too large (and honestly I was not in love with any of them except for my Adorama Slinger, which has served me extremely well over the years), and I took the plunge and picked up a Billingham Hadley Digital as my small camera bag (and a Hadley Pro for a larger bag but that's a tale for another day).

 

I've owned various LowePro, Timbuk2, and the Slinger over the years, and the Billingham is most definitely a cut above, with a decidedly luxurious look & feel.  Although I got the Hadley Pro in black/black so it wouldn't stand out as much when traveling (but honestly it still does kind of stand out as an obviously-expensive bag), I went with Sage/Tan for the smaller Hadley Digital.

 

Here is the bag loaded:

 

IMG_5047.jpg

 

And here it is with the contents outside:

 

IMG_5048.jpg

 

Contents are:

  • X-T10 body
  • XF60mm "almost-macro" (attached)
  • XF18-55
  • S'well 9oz water bottle
  • Reusable bag (this one is larger/sturdier than the similar ubiquitous Chico bags)
  • Think Tank dSLR Battery Holder 2 with 2 spare batteries and one spare SD card (there's easily room for one more SD card, possibly 3 more if in small cases - I only own 2 SD cards, though).

The S'well is the *only* water bottle I would ever think about putting so close to expensive optics/electronics.  It's double-lined, doesn't condense even a tiny bit, and the lid is extremely secure.  Of course that same space could easily hold a larger/longer lens, which it undoubtedly will at some point when GAS inevitably leads me to a 55-200.

 

 

I used only one of the two velcro dividers that came with the Hadley Digital, but took an unused "lens flap" one from my Hadley Pro and use that to separate the camera+lens from the lens beneath it.  The 35mm fits fine under that flap, as does the 18-55, but only horizontally.

 

Finally, here's the whole thing all "sewn up" - the fastener is on the middle hole, so there's a fair bit of vertical space that could be used if necessary and likewise with a smaller loadout, it could be tightened up a bit.

 

IMG_5053.jpg

 

So far I am loving this bag, as it's the perfect size for me for carrying all of the camera essentials, plus a couple of not-camera items I prefer to always have.  The price, $210 at Amazon, is quite high though, especially given the RRP of ~GPB110 hoever the GPB55 shipping charge on Billingham's website is absolutely preposterous.  It's a bit odd that this was only a little less expensive than the considerably-larger Hadley Pro, but being as I don't intend to buy a bag ever again, I'm OK with that.  No really, never again.  Why are you laughing?  I'm serious!

Fujinon 60mm f/2.4 aperture ring problem and repair

Yesterday, 04:32 PM

Hello all,

 

today my new to me, recently bought second hand, 60mm lens began to misbehave. At wide apertures 2.4 or 2.8 it would switch to "P" i.e. the lens behaved like it was on "A".

 

I found here in forum some references to this type of failure and that I should send it to Fuji for repair. It is an electronic or mechanical issue, not software issue, so I told myself: what the hell, I am quite experienced with mechanical camera body repairs and MF lenses CLA, so I jumped right on it.

 

The bayonet ring goes off easily, but there is this flex ribbon circuit. Best is to disconnect it - there is a latch on the oposite side than where the ribbon goes out.

P1160609_1k.jpg

P1160610_1k.jpg

 

Under the bayonet, there is a large metal C ring, probably just a spacer. 

P1160614_1k.jpg

 

Be careful because in my sample there were also 2 small spacers. I really don't know why would anyone mount the bayonet spaced more one one side than on the other side... but I left them in there. (pictured below with one of the bayonet screws for scale, they are also in the picture above)

P1160613_.jpg

 

The second ring with the red-dot and serial number is held in place by 2 tiny screws.

 

Then comes the difficult part - the aperture ring itself.

 

There is a detent ball on a spring, be careful that you don't lose it. Work over a developing tray or something similar.

 

The aperture ring can be taken off in position at f22 or "A" - there is a cut out for the brushes. They can be gently bent back if distorted while removing the aperture ring (don't ask how I know it)

P1160608_1k.jpg

 

After this step I immediately understood why the aperture setting 2.4 and 2.8 wouldn't work. Take a look at the following picture:

P1160607_1k.jpg

 

The conductive "paths" of the aperture setting encoder are just a sticker, and it started to peel off and got out of the trace of the brushes. Simply on the 2 mentioned settings the sticker with the "paths" was no longer in the correct position where the brushes would contact it. This is what we are paying for. Very cheaply made internals IMHO.

 

I sticked it back in the correct place, pushed it really hard in hope that it will stay in place for a while. If I need to do it again, I will use some epoxy.

 

Getting the aperture ring back on is a whole new puzzle. The problem is the ball on a spring. I solved it by using a piece of aluminium can. Keep the can piece in place, don't move it or the ball wil fall off of the spring and the aperture ring will damage the spring (don't ask how I know this). As the aperture ring slides on, it pushes the spring and ball into the hole. There is just enough clearance for the aluminum can piece. Anything thicker wouldn't fit.

P1160611_1k.jpg

P1160612_1k.jpg

 

The rest is just "follow the steps in reverse order"

 

I hope this helps someone. I am sure I am not the only one with this problem.

Best thrift store finds? Share your big fish stories.

Yesterday, 02:55 PM

I've been having a bit of a run of luck this past week with thrift-store finds, and figured it might be fun to collect everyone's big-fish stories: those random finds or runs of luck finding precious old gear for next to nothing.

 

So far in the past two days I've managed to find, in a single town, for less than $80 all-in...:

 

• Olympus OM-2n, black, in fairly minty condition with a Zuiko 50mm 1.8 (I've always coveted one of these babies)

• Tamron Adaptall 28mm f2.5, olympus mount

• Super Takumar 135mm f3.5

• Pentax k1000 with PK/M 50mm f1.7 SMC and a Pentax fixed-aperture zoom (can't remember which one)

• Pentax ME Super w. PK/M 50mm f1.7 SMC

• Soligor 28mm f2.8 in M42

• Some Tamron fixed-aperture zoom/macro with a PK/M mount (again, can't remember which focal range)

• Cokin p-series glass linear polarizer & hard grad filter

 

...and I still have 5+ thrift stores to check out in this town :)

 

Anyway, can't wait to hear about your greatest scores!

Old Bible and Rosary

Yesterday, 02:30 PM

Posted by dpc in General

The rosary is 128 years old. One of my paternal ancestors must have obtained it while visiting Lourdes in France. "Lourdes" is inscribed on the back of the cross and the arms are decorated with lilies. The beads must be made of sandalwood. The rosary gave off a strong smell until quite recently. There is still a faint whiff of sandalwood when you take it from its leather case. The bible is well over a hundred years old, but I'm unsure precisely how old. The page with the printing date is missing. Ironically, the Bible is Protestant (KJV) while the rosary is obviously Catholic. There is a strong history of Catholicism on my father's side of the family and an equally strong history of Protestantism on my mother's (Orangemen - in previous times and times not so long ago, a lethal mix). I juxtapose them in the interests of ecumenism.
