Wait for 16mm f/1.4 or buy 18mm f/2 now?

Today, 11:39 AM

Posted by Nimrad in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion

Is this a no-brainer or what? I'm an amateur photographer coming from Pentax and I'm used to and love fast prime lenses. I just ordered myself a Fujifilm X-T1 with the 56mm f/1.2 and was originally planning on buying the 18mm f/2 in addition. My main reason for investing in this equipment now is that I'm going travelling next summer and therefore I don't absolutely need any lenses right now. Judging by the roadmap it seems that the 16mm will make it to market next late spring/early summer and that's just in time for my travel.


So it comes to my question. Should I wait for this lens?

Paint wearing on my X100S

Today, 11:39 AM

Posted by threeshoes in X100 and X100S Discussion

I've just noticed that the top coat of paint has worn from the top left corner of my X100S.  I suppose it's an early model – it was new in March 2013, but I bought it 2 months later from its purchaser.


I always keep it in its case, a small Crumpler bag called the Quick Escape 150.  There's no doubt that the camera moves around inside the bag, but the lining is soft and in the bottom I have a Fuji black lens bag.  The worn area is on the corner, and it's barely visible . . . but I know that it's there now.  There's no visible or tangible scratch, only wear – as far as I can make out.


Has anyone else had this (small) problem?  I really like having and using my X100S; the results are nearly always stellar and it's a real peach to have to hand.  But I'm a bit obsessive when it comes to looking after my gear and this is a little disappointing.

Bad start to my pro relationship with Fuji - f0 error - a growing concern

Today, 10:35 AM

Posted by PeterBendheim in X-T1 Discussion

I very recently changed from a pro Nikon shooter of 25 years to Fuji, just starting to love the camera.


On frame 1700 approx in this new camera, the f0 error starts to manifest itself. It's not the contacts or the lenses. The camera starts fine, works a while. The minute you review an image, the camera lens moves a bit and when you try and shoot again, it displays f0. It's not dirty contacts, and it's not the lenses. Same behaviour on all the lenses.


When that happens the camera becomes completely inoperable.


If you go do a firmware check, camera firmware registers correctly as 1,10 - ALL the lenses show Firmware as 0, even the 23 1,4 for which there is no update says "Firmware upgrade error - contact a service center"


I am resolute that I am not having a few week old camera opened and the waterproofing tampered with for what is clearly not a user error. Fuji will have to replace - but I see a fight looming..


I think this started as an isolated error with a few isolated cases... but I think there are probably quite a few latent issues out there. I would appeal to all Fuji X-T1 users who have experienced this issue to add to this thread which I will also post across at DP Review.


Love this camera but feeling very disappointed right now.

Any good digital photo frame you want to recommend?

Today, 10:02 AM

Posted by studio347 in Fuji X Accessories

Is there someone using a digital photo frame?

Could you recommend some? Either wall or desk~

Black or white for the frame color~ ?

While shooting a fuji camera, it feels somewhat right to use a digital photo frame which I have never used before. Casual all the way~

Thanks in advance.


PS_Is there color profile sensitive frame though?

Thinking now, it might be a good way to have one person photo exhibition~ like 10 digital photo frames which are changing images at the precise timing of a photographer intention( or random or viewer's interaction~). Has anyone seen anything like this in real world? I might try this in the future~ even at home.

Hi All 


This is a photo of my daughter Ellie using an X-T1 with 18-135mm. 180/th second shutter @ f4.7 iso500 @43.9mm


Don't really know why i was at iso500 or even f4.7 still getting used to the X-T1 :)


Flash compensation was at -2/3 of a stop.


Thanks for looking.

.......could they just make it possible to assign manual-focus-check-magnification to the Fn button.  That's all.  So my thumb needn't move off my grip and my shutter finger moves a whole centimetre to confirm focus. Make me happy Mr Fujisan.

Zeiss 135mm Apo Sonnar f2 (image heavy)

Today, 03:29 AM

Posted by petern in Fuji X Photos

Just wanted to share my impressions of the Zeiss 135mm Apo Sonnar f2 lens. I posted it here because I want to let the photos speak for themselves instead of writing a full review. Others are much better at that than I am. 


Let me start with the bad news: It’s a huge lens. The X-T1 looks tiny with this lens. It weighs 920gr (2.03 lbs). Aperture ranges from f2 to f22, 11 elements in 8 groups, 9 blades, and a minimum focusing distance of 0m8m (2.62ft) which leads to a 1:4 ratio. The filter size is 77mm and is 128mm long. I bought the ZF.2 version, which is the Nikon version. The Canon version is slightly bigger and heavier but does not have an aperture ring. Oh, and it’s manual focus. See http://www.zeiss.com/camera-lenses/en_de/camera_lenses/slr-lenses/aposonnart2135.html for more information.


Lens compared to 55-200mm Fuji lens with adapter (sorry for the sloppy image):





I was recommended to use the hood always to retain colors and fine details (not sure if that's true but I followed the advice)



Why did I buy this lens?

As soon as I saw photos taken with this lens, I was sold. The bokeh is second to none in my opinion. I compared it with the Leica 180mm APO Elmarit 2.8 lens and liked the Zeiss slightly better. It was also cheaper, which is important for a Dutchman. ;-)

I wanted to use it mainly for portraits and flower shots. I haven't done much in those fields yet. Unfortunately.


How is the build and does it work smoothly?

Stupid question, Peter. Of course. It's a Zeiss. Build is superb. It's all metal including the hood. Focusing is easy and smooth. The aperture ring can be turned easily but is not too loose. You know it when you change aperture (it "clicks"). The ring steps in ½ stops from f2 to f22. Obviously you won't see the aperture value in the EVF/LCD nor won't you see it it in the EXIF data. 


What to be aware of?

  • The lack of OIS requires stable shooting technique, higher shutter speeds, or a tripod. 
  • While the zoom function while focusing works automatically with fuji x mount lenses, you have to push the focus assist button on the X-T1 with this lens, but that's doable without taking the camera from your eye.
  • Use a Novoflex adapter. An expensive lens deserves nothing but the best. I had a fotodiox adapter but it had too much tolerance (is that the right word?). Not so with the Novoflex.
  • Just in case you haven't worked with adapted lenses yet: add 135mm to the mount adapter setting and set "shoot wihtout lens" to "on" in the menu (#3). 


Well, without further due, here are some shots:

















Is it sharp? I think so. These are 1:1 crops:







And to illustrate the tonal capabilities, a rose shot (always a test subject for me ;-) ):

Otter Trail South Africa

Today, 01:36 AM

Posted by StevieG in Fuji X Photos

Just did a 5 day hike along the coast in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. It's called the Otter Trail, and has to be the most beautiful hike I have ever done, period. Here are some of the shots I took along the way. Mostly with the XT 1 and the 14mm, but also some shots with the 23mm. What a superb camera and lens combo for this kind of thing. So light and portable, with image quality to rival my full frame.


Its just a pity the battery life is so terrible. I had to take 3 batteries to get me through 5 days, and I was still culling shots to make sure  I had enough juice for the journey. Next time I'm definately getting a zoom though, to make life a litte easier.

Strobist X100 Triggers etc - please help

Today, 01:02 AM

Posted by futureal33 in X100 and X100S Discussion

Good morning all,


First post on this forum, although a regular poster to TalkPhotography, I thought I would try here, as my question is pretty Fuji specific :) Hoping someone can help!


Basically I bought a Fuji X100 for strobist reasons, getting flash off camera, and firing it remotely. 


In terms of kit, I have quite a few different sets of triggers (years of shooting with Canon tends to leave me with a fairly large spares bucket!!) so Im looking for the best solution...


I have also done quite a bit of testing on this myself, and have my own (sort of) conclusions, but was hoping others on here have done the same, and could also chime in?


Basically I am looking for the best solution to getting a speedlite off camera, and firing it at 1/1000th f2 (or thereabouts) ISO with the ND filter. This setup should let me overpower daylight with a single speedlite. The problem is that from what I have read, each trigger has a different delay in getting the signal from camera to flash, which when shooting at 1/1000th sec is very important as to get as much flash output in your very fast shutter duration - a slow trigger can result in no flash being seen at all...


Trigger wise, I have

a set of Yongnuo YN622s,

Yongnuo RF603s,

Canon 600EX RT (radio) speedlites and a radio transmitter trigger,

2 x Yongnuo optical flashes.


Having tested all of the above, I have come to the following conclusions


YN622s - Work well. No difference in shooting the flash on 1/1 power or 1/2 power - which suggests either a trigger delay causing not all of the 1/1 flash pop to be "seen" by the camera exposure.... or the T1 time of that flash >1000th/sec = camera shutter has opened and shut before the flash pop has finished - meaning wasted light.


RF603s - Not yet tested


Canon 600 RT system - Tested with a Yongnuo YN-E3 trigger (same as Canon STe3 but supports non-Canon cameras). Works at 1/250th and below (slower) but not any faster than 1/250th - which suggests that the trigger delay is causing the flash to fire late... and that shutter has finished its cycle before the flash fires. This confuses me, because I read an article recently about this exact setup (X100 / YNe3 and Canon 600 flashes) and in the review this worked flawlessly and also allowed off-camera remote power control of the flash - which would be v useful.


Optical - Best so far. Worked flawlessly upto 1/4000th! I guess this kind of makes sense if you consider it is working at the speed of light vs a radio transmission! But comes with several downsides... requires line of sight.... very hit and miss on a bright sunny day and no remote power adjust of the flash - meaning lots of walking to the flash and back to get power right.


I have been following David Hobby who uses his X100 for Strobist stuff, and notice that he too uses Optical to fire his Nikon Speedlites... so maybe he's been down the same road I have... but thought I would ask here if anyone else has tried this?


I ideally want the Canon RT system to work... This system is amazing on Canon 5D cameras, offering wireless power control of the off-camera flash,. and range of upto 100m...amazing system - but I just cant get it to sync right on the Fuji.... At 1/250th it works great - the flash fires and the exposure picks up the flash no problem... but at 1/1000th it is just a completely black exposure - meaning the sensor isnt picking up any flash at all - even though it is firing..


Any help MUCH appreciated!

Thanks :)
