FN button won't set aperture settings on X-Pro 1

Today, 07:36 AM

Posted by Bob M in X-Pro1 Discussion

I'm really enjoying my new "slightly used"  X Pro 1 with 18 - 55  and thought I would set the FN button or the 4 way back button to Aperture Setting and nothing happened - I set the menu , press the buttons and nothing  shows up.    

 

All the other menu settings worked ... I can change ISO - White Balance etc ... but when I change either FN or 4 way to aperture setting I can't change the aperture and I can't see the aperture settings in the viewfinder or rear screen. 

 

I tried the same on my venerable XE 1 with the 18 - 55 and the same thing ... nothing shows up ... so I assume I'm doing something wrong if both cameras are telling me the same thing.    Any ideas ?

 

Oh and I checked and yes, I have all the latest firmware updates for lens and body

 

Thanks, Bob

Wondering about the selectable shutter modes X100T

Today, 07:04 AM

Posted by rpavich in X100, X100S and X100T Discussion

I was watching the video for the electronic shutter on the X100T at Photokina and noticed that there are 3 selectable modes:

 

1.) Mechanical shutter only

2.) Electronic Shutter only

3.) Both 

I was wondering what (if any) negative impacts there might be to keeping the "both" set? It would seem that if it doesn't negatively impact anything that that would be the logical choice since "ES" wouldn't "kick in" until after you go above 1/4000 and have the camera set on "aperture priority"

 

I know we are all speculating but I was just wondering what thoughts others might have.

Nikkor 135mm f/2D DC VS. XF56mmF1.2 R APD

Today, 05:26 AM

Posted by lysander in Adapted Lens Discussion

Defocus Control VS APD

 

Has anyone experience with this lens? According to 2011 review by camera "expert" Ken Rockwell: "The 135mm DC is also Nikon's sharpest 135mm lens, and an extraordinarily great lens for nature and landscape photography. It is worlds sharper and freer from spherical aberration than any of the the old manual focus 135mm f/2 lenses...This is not a soft-focus lens; it is a lens that has been specifically designed and patented both for superior bokeh (the softness of out-of-focus areas), and the ability to control this bokeh for optimum results under all conditions"

 

* I know these are really different focal lengths, but I am trying to understand the difference between Defocus Control and APD.

 

So this would work as a 200mm on the X-T1, an FL loved by many.

 

The Nikkor 135mm f/2D DC stats from http://www.dslrbodie...lephoto-primes/

  • FX coverage
  • Autofocus (no in-lens focus motor), rear focus
  • 7 elements in 6 groups
  • 9-blade rounded aperture diaphragm
  • smallest aperture is f/16
  • 72mm filter ring
  • 48" (1.1m) minimum focus; 1:2.1 maximum reproduction ratio
  • 4.7 x 3.1" (120 x 79mm) long, diameter
  • 28.7 ounces (815g) weight
  • included slide out hood, optional CL-38 case, caps
  • US$1395
  • Model Number 1935
  • Announced pre digital era

Even new this Nikkor is less money than an ADP.

How good is JPEG

Today, 01:55 AM

Posted by s3pro in X-T1 Discussion

Hi all,

With my X-T1 I shoot RAW+Fine JPEG and have often wondered if I could skip RAF.

These 3 images have been processed as identical as possible.

The camera is set to Standard picture controls with sharpening at "0"

For RAF files, I process with the supplied SilkyPix and just tried Adobe DNG converter.

No enhancements have been made in PP.

One observation, was the annoying fine grid like dots with Adobe. The compressed versions you are looking at may not show but at print size and a zoom of 100% only, the dots render the images as useless.

Another observation with the SilkyPix conversion. All default camera setting were adhered to but instead of dots, the sky (both blue and on the clouds) had  noise-like artefacts.

The third observation was with the Fine JPEG image. Much cleaner than the other two and I could got straight to print without any PP work.

I've read before that Fuji just gets JPEG "right" with the X-T1 and when a friend witnessed this comparison a few hours ago, I tend to agree.

Being a long standing user of Nikon NX2 with a D700 and all "good glass", I use NX2 for JPEG PP work.

Anyway, just in case somebody might be interested.

Cheers,

Rob

Wide Angle Adapter -- bigger = less vignette?

Yesterday, 10:56 PM

Posted by felixdd in X10, X20 and X30 Discussion

Just a question,

 

I have a wide-angle adapter that screws on to a 52mm adapter, which I screw into my X20 via a 40-52mm step-up ring. Shooting at 28mm, there's vignetting at the corners. As others have mentioned, if I zoom in a little, it removes the vignette -- but you lose the width so what's the point?

 

This got me thinking -- if I get a wide-angle adapter that screws onto 67mm, with an appropriate step-up (ether from 40-67 or more likely 52-67mm directly), would it still vignette? I won't be so crazy as to use more than 2 step-up rings as that'll probably cause vignetting from the rings rather than the the filter

 

I figure that if the camera-end of the glass is a larger surface area, there may be less vignetting, especially if that glass is at the closest possible distance to the lens? Anyone try this?

X-T1- flash not working?!

Yesterday, 04:58 PM

Posted by f8lee in X-T1 Discussion

I was working through the owners manual and set peak focusing to red (if that matters at all) but now the flash does not work with my X-T1. I have tried both the included mini-flash unit as well as the EF-42 I bought last year for use with my X100 and - nothing. When I go to the menu the "Flash Mode" selection under menu 4 is grayed out (same with the quick menu).

 

I can't figure out if I inadvertently set something elsewhere that would disallow the flash from working (as it used to without issue) - any ideas what I missed? The manual is of no help thus far.

 

TIA
