Hi all,
I am getting married in the Fall and am having a really hard time selecting a wedding photographer. As an amateur landscape/street photographer, I am not well versed in the way of professional gig-based photography.
What things should I look for when selecting a photographer?
I realize there are basics, such as price, or whether I get all photos or only a limited number of the photos.
Any help you can provide would be great. Thanks!…

16-80 would be such a versatile focal length, and a 33 f1 sounds bonkers! On another note that 8-16 sure is pricey, thou on par with other top of the line ultra wide zooms…

For me , the X-Pro1 / X-t1 seem to follow on from the CCD sensor in my Leica M8 in respect of colours and a sense of depth which I can't analyse .
I kept a Pentax K10d with manual lenses and a much maligned Sony A290 with a favourite Minolta 35-80 f4 / 35 f1.8 just for those rich CCD colours .
Post-Fuji they are probably more redundant , especially the clunky DSLrs , but I still take them out now and again over a more u to date Pentax K-S1 / 35f2.8 .

Canon 70d + Tamron 90mm macro. More in 2nd post
I got this lens from my dad. It's an electronic aperture lens but has manual focus. In order to mount it and be able to set the aperture you need an adapter and only Fotodiox makes one. It's more expensive than the typically Chinese adapters. Those run $15-20 and this one costs $40.
It's a sharp lens and produces some interesting bokeh. Nice colors as well.

This embarrassing event in Bonn was spread in the media throughout the world: A visiting jewish professor, victim of a racially motivated attack, was wrestled down and beaten by the police while the perpetrator was running off - case of mistaken identity- and later pressured by the police not to press charges against them. In response to this embarassment City Hall organized this day of the kippah...

Hi all,
I just received my new x-t2 yesterday and was testing it out with different lens. I have already updated to latest firmware (both body and lens). However, when I mount my 18-135mm lens, it display f0 as aperture and cannot focus. The strange thing is that when I mount the same lens onto my old x-e2, it works!
I have tested with the following lens and have no issue with my new x-t2:

  • 14mm

  • 60mm

  • 18-55mm

  • 35mm f2

  • 50-230

So it seems unlikely my new x-t2 fault, am I right? Or lens fault? I cannot figure this one out.
Please advise.

Hard to miss this buoy at Dale, Milford Haven. Decided not to tone down the colour simply because its outrageous impact commanded attention! Definitely getting to like ND filters now after avoiding them as probably too much trouble to use. Cokin 10-stop ND filter on 16mm end of 16-55mm f/2.8, 60 seconds @ f/16 ISO-200:

Do you also follow some photographers on flickr (or other image sharing sites) who you think should have more followers?
Why not start a thread for them here?
I'll start by pointing you to Monty Montgomery who catches "Life in Oshkosh" in stunning black and white pictures. They are regularly among my absolute favorites! He also happens to be a Fuji photographer (and I think used to be on this forum once in a while).

Hi, i,ve used Canon DPP for a while now, all i use it for is Highlight/ Shadow adjustment, and its very simple to use. I have been using Fuji X-T1 and X-T10 for over a year now just shooting JPGs because they come out so well. I decided to try shooting in RAW, but i cannot get the hang of the Silkypix Shadow/ Highlight control. Is there an easier RAW converter i could use. I have read the help files but they dont make much sense to me. I love the Fuji system so much i have hardly used my Canon gear. If someone out there could help me i would appreciate it very much.

Doesn't look like a lot but I love the fact these guys crank out improvements as fast as they do:

  • Fix of "WRITE ERROR" appeared in rare cases

  • Fix of going back to initial setting screen in rare cases

ALSO: Has anyone seen this viewfinder? I tried looking on the fuji website but couldn't find was on their IG feed with no mention. Are they just teasing us?

Just ordered one of these off of Amazon, UK £72. Meant to be a fairly good portrait lens, slightly soft at the edges, but sharp in the middle. First time ever buying a chinese non fuji lens, but do have some Meike auto macro tubes for Nikkor 1 which are excellent. I actually won £80 in a world cup sweep stake, so really not in theory spending any of my own cash :)
Obviously there is no lens profile for these in, so I suppose will just have to have a play with settings and create a preset.
Arrives tuesday at the latest, so will post up a few images when arrives. Anyone else possess one?…

Picked up an old photo magazine the other day with "5 Classic Shots everyone should try" on the front cover. One of them was the use of various ND filters with items projecting into into the sea, lakes etc, including the well-known wooden landing stage in the Lake District. The nearest I could get locally was this groyne in Fishguard harbour, North Pembrokeshire. I tried several with exposures varying from 30 seconds to 2 minutes 45 seconds; this one at 30" @ f/16 was probably the most successful, taken looking north just after sunset: - X-H1 @ 16mm f/16. With longer exposures and the incoming tide encroaching on the tripod legs I found a definite slight drift of focus with what must have been imperceptible movement of the fine shingle transferred to the tripod.

I decided to upgrade my laptop rather than replace it. I decided to put in an SSD drive. The problem I had was that my existing hard drive was 500GB whereas the SSD I bought (Kingston SUV500) is 240GB. My plan was to increase overall disk space by using a spare 500GB drive I had and install it in a caddy that will fit into the DVD drive space once I've taken that out. I'll simply use the SSD for the operating system and application software. I decided to clone the old drive onto the new one and used Macrium Reflect software to do so. It can cope with cloning a larger drive to a smaller one. I stuck the SSD into a USB caddy and did the cloning.
It all went well and the time to boot up and access applications has reduced drastically. The only issue I've had so far is Corel Aftershot Pro 3 failed to start but after a repair it's now working fine - though is taking longer to export to PSP 2018 than before. Everything else is working well, Excel opens from scratch in 2 seconds as does Word. Also from start up to stable desktop is 15 seconds. Not bad for a 5 year old laptop running Windows 10…

I just bought an x100f and I am looking for a well-made leather half-case for it. Do you all have any recommendations? Thanks!…

After going back and forth for awhile, I finally took the plunge and bought an X100F from a user from this forum. I’ve always been a bit of a customization nut, so I knew I had to try and do something different with my new camera.
The original leatherette has been stripped off was replaced with red alligator embossed pigskin. It’s a bit stiff around the viewfinder lever, but all in all I am super happy with the result. I have a red strap and a red aluminum thumbgrip coming in too to round out the build.

Just a simple snap taken at Dungeness Kent UK of one of the many old boats on the beach that have just been Left To Rot.
In the background you can see a few other things scattered around the beach that have just been Left Behind.
I'm also working on a personal project called Things Left Behind and this will be one of the shots included.
