Fuji X100T ship date?

Today, 09:15 AM

Posted by davidwrightphoto in Fujifilm X News & Rumors

Hey folks,

 

I'm debating about what retailer to order the Fuji X100T from (B&H, Amazon, local store out of state). Any recommendations? B&H says mid-November ship date, Amazon says end of November, local store out of state says they're receiving copies of the camera after it ships November 5th. Curious to hear your thoughts!

 

Thanks,

 

Dave

Trying to pick gear for a 3,000km motorbike trip

Today, 07:45 AM

Posted by paul szilard in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion

I am going on the Australian Snowy (Mountains) Ride next weekend. This is a charity event with typically 3000+ motorbikes riding around spectacular countryside.

 

I want to shoot both photos and video. I have max amount of volume for gear that will fit into my bike's top box. Which basically a Tenba back pack.

 

I am agonizing between absolute minimum versus everything I can possibly cram in! :)

 

If you could pick any items from the X range, including the X100S what would you take? I can also take a Sony HXR-NX30 camcorder.

3rd party manual macro lens

Today, 06:19 AM

Posted by icnoble in Adapted Lens Discussion
i need some advice. I recently jumped from Nikon to Fuji. I have the Fuji X f2.4 which I use in the studio and for macro/close up. I am considering selling this lens and getting the 56mm f 1.2 and buying a manual macro lens such as the Tamron or The Kirin 105mm f2.8 macro and using an adaptor. I use an XT-1. Any thoughts on this course of action would be gratefully received.

Request for xf60mm 3/4 - full length portrait samples

Today, 05:54 AM

Posted by Hawkmoon in Fuji X-Mount Lens Discussion

So I'm thinking about this lens as a poor man's 56mm as I can afford the 60 but not the 56. I have seen a few sample headshots in the samples forum here but no real examples of 3/4 length or full length portraits shot wide open with this lens, which is most likely what I would use it for.So if you have any releavnt examples and don't mind posting them I would be really grateful - I'm particularly intrigued by what the subject - background separation would be like shot wide open, the sharpness and the bokeh.

 

Thanks !

Fuji X-E1 with big and heavy lens

Today, 05:22 AM

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

I'm thinking to use my Nikkor 14-24 f2.8 wide angle lens on my Fuji X-E1 body for some landscape shots by using an adapter. Carrying this lens plus a pro body size camera plus tripod is killing my back and arm. Just a bit worried if the body and adapter can support the weight of the lens + filters and holder when screwed on the camera tripod socket. I cannot find a lens tripod foot for the said lens.

 

Any ideas or suggestions on this one? I'm not looking to buy the Fuji UWA at the moment :)

 

Thanks!

Custom setup question on x-e2

Today, 02:38 AM

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

This morning I thought I would start setting up the custom settings (C1-C7). It appears that custom settings will not allow the file format to be sticky. For example I was trying to set C2 to be b&w jpg and raw. If I am shooting raw then decide to go to the custom menu C2 it will still be just raw and not b&w jpg and raw.

 

Perhaps I am missing something here. 

 

It seems to me that custom setting should hold the file type(s) you want to set the custom setting for. If not I really think the custom settings functions is very limited in its usability.

 

Hopefully I'm doing something wrong here..

Did you buy X-E2, return it and stick with your X-E1?

Today, 01:19 AM

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

Over on DPR forums I read some owners who upgraded from X-E1 to an X-E1 returned their E2s, saying that they just didn't like the differtent colour reproduction of the E2 compared to the E1. I can see for myself that the tone curve and JPEGS look different, and I can see the plastic skin smoothing that seems to hap[pen in E2 high ISO JPEG portraits.

 

But I was surprised that even some raw shooters said they didn't like E2 raws compared to E1 raws.

 

I'm a 100% raw shooter.

 

What is the feeling over here on these forums? Has anyone here gone this route of returning an E2 and sticking to an E1 out of IQ/colour issues?

 

I'm asking as I am thinking of swapping out my E1 for an E2 for the better AF, but I LOVE the colors from my E1 in Capture One and Lightroom and am concerned about not getting the same great Fuji colours with an E2 without extra PP work?

Solar eclipse

Shot about 1600 images of today's solar eclipse to make a video. Still working on that but here's a still from close to the maximum eclipse. Fujifilm X-T1 with a Stellarvue SVR-90 "Raptor" telescope (630mm focal length f7). The detail in the sunspot group is amazing. Largest spot group I've seen in years.

The restoration was in part funded by public donation with dedication plaques. My father-in-law was a park warden in Kelvingrove so it seemed fitting to contribute so his and his wife's names were here .

What to do on a rainy day

Yesterday, 02:46 PM

Posted by jamie allan in Fuji X Photos

I had a day off today but the weather was poor. So I visited Kelvingrove gallery and museum. Hope I'm not infringing copyright.

 

John Reid by Van Gogh. A wee ginger Glaswegian who was an art dealer and friend of Van Gogh.

Salvador Dali - Christ of St. John of the cross. This is hard to get because it's in a poorly lit small room.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh - The Wassail. I wish this was at a better viewing height though PS skew helps greatly.

Father and Daughter - this is a plaster statue but is lit really harshly so I've tried a black and white image

HDMI liveview output ?

Yesterday, 02:15 PM

Posted by Sam66 in X-M1 and X-A1 Discussion

Does anyone know if you can get a live view out from the HDMI port on the X-M1 or X-A1?

 

If you connected to an external monitor could you see the view from the camera or is HDMI only used in playback mode?

2 lens choice for holiday

Yesterday, 02:10 PM

Posted by macvisual in X-Pro1 Discussion
Hi all, off on holiday from the start of November for a week away to Fuerteventura.

I don't want to bring all four of my Fuji X lenses as it would be too bulky etc, so here's my current lens line up for my X-Pro1 body;
XF 10-24mm -- XF 35mm -- XF 60mm -- XF 55-200mm.

I was think about bringing both the XF 10-24mm and the XF 60mm.


Any advice appreciated.

Thanks;
Peter
Scotland
