I found what seems to be different versions of this lens, at least in size (both X-mount, but that's not the point). I´m confused
One picture (vertical) is from an used item and the other form the B&H site. The used one seems to be larger.
Am I wrong?

I want to shoot Raw & Jpeg+ACROS. When I setup like this my viewfinder is in B&W. Is there any way to have the viewfinder in color when shooting with this combo?
Many thanks!…

She was just curled up on a grass patch. I sat the camera on a low wall barely 2 metres away. Got 3 shots, this plus two others as she buried her nose back under her tail and went back to sleep.
X-T1 with XF 18 - 55 and Nissin flash. To say it was a snatched shot, it came out well.

Hi
I'm loving my new X-Pro2, but am left-eyed. This makes the finder kind of dim in bright sunlight.
There's a perfect (maybe) solution here:

BUT
It's for the XT series.
Can anyone tell me if the eyecups are interchangeable between the X-Pro and XT cameras?
Thanks!…

I took a chance on a brand new Rokinon 16mm f2 in Fuji X mount from Amazon. Price was $201.21. Thought why not. I have tried other Rokinons: the 135mm which is exquisite and the 12mm that just didn't work for me. I am aware of a lot of lens options for Fuji X, but had never seen anyone reference the Rokinon/Samyang 16mm.
Best value I ever spent on any lens of any cost. The results are very like the Fuji 16mm, without auto focus. Image below only to show wide open sharpness and bokeh possibilities in a very not well lit indoor room. Very close focus, maybe around 6", like the Fuji. I am so thoroughly happy with this lens. It is a fairly large. A bit larger than the Fuji. The price was crazy for new from Amazon. Worth a look if you enjoy manual focus and want what the Fuji 16mm offers.

I am considering subscribing to the Adobe CC with lightroom and photoshop, but I have a question.
I spend a lot of time traveling for work, and most of my family live out in the boonies, both situations where wifi might not be available.
Is it possible to use the adobe programs when one does not have wifi? I understand i may not have access to photos I've saved to the cloud, but for instance, if I import photos from my camera to my iPad, will lightroom's editing functions be usable?
Thanks for any advice,

Just a simple snap taken at Folkestone Kent UK of some small boats moored in the outer harbour in the evening light. In the distance you can see the French coastline. The model house you can see in the snap is all to do with the Folkestone Triennial.

I have a MOBI card that works great to wireless transfer images from my XT-20 to my Mac. I use the Keenai software to make the connection. Changes are coming to Keenai, and I don't know how much longer it will work. My studio and office are next to each other. I set up and shoot in the studio, then I head to my Mac in my office to review the images. The transfer is automatic. Nice!
I wish that Fuji had a way to do this. My camera has WiFi, but it is so poorly implemented. I do use the Fujifilm Cam Remote app on my iPad to remotely control the camera. It works, but if you've used it you know there are a lot of steps required to get it connected. Worse is if I want to review the camera images on the iPad after I have used the camera remote control I have to disconnect from the WiFi, reconnect to the WiFi, review the images, disconnect from the WiFi, reconnect to the WiFi, use the camera remote again. Yikes, it can't be made any harder!
I did try a Toshiba WiFi SD card, and it does work, but it too is difficult to connect. The MOBI card with the Keenai software is the best. I do nothing more than shoot the images and they just transfer. That's what I want. Has anyone else found a decent solution to this assuming the Keenai software does go away?…
Hi All,
Does anyone have a recommendation for an underwater housing for the XT2? I’ve been looking around and most of the options are expensive, so I wanted to get some opinions before I pulled the trigger.
Thanks!…
Is an extension tube available to put on the fuji 80 mm macro lens? If so, does it have electrical contacts? I know little about the subject so I am not even sure if an extension tube for the 80 mm macro lens makes any sense…

I'm considering an X-T3 partly for its video capability. I'd like to understand what options I have to refocus while videoing. I'd like to have the camera in AF-S or M mode and either touch the screen to refocus or use the AF-On button. The manual seems to suggest that this is possible, where it says on page 54:
. While the video is in progress you can:
- press the shutter button half-way,
- press a function button to which AF-On is assigned,
- use the touch screen controls
Which suggests that I would be able to do what I want. But the DPReview commentary on the video aspects says:
"The X-T3's video autofocus is essentially a simplified version of its stills system. The only option is continuous AF and you have the choice of the camera selecting the subject or you manually selecting from 91 AF areas spread across the frame. Face Detection works on top of this ..."
Which suggests otherwise. Perhaps the key term here is the auto in autofocus and this comment is clumsy in being incomplete. Would someone be able to confirm that the manual is indeed correct please?
TIA…
Hi all
Yesterday I received my Fuji X-T1 and took it out for a wee shoot just to see how I got on with it, I was using it with a K&F Concept M42 to FX adapter and an Asahi Pentax Super Multi Coated 55mm F/1.8.
The first thing it is tiny but solidly built, the layout is good but the ISO dial is a pain, each time I move the ISO it also moved the switch underneath, also had some minor problems with the shutter speed dial as well but they were few and far between. Of course, these things may have been sorted out on the X-T2/X-T3. Another thing is the rear screen only tilts and can't be turned and have the glass put away to protect it also when an Arca Swiss plate is mounted onto the camera the rear screen cant open but I believe when the MHG-XT grip is fitted then that problem will be solved. Battery life is not so good but some extra batteries are needed I think but will look at aftermarket ones from Duracell as originals are expensive.
So many menus and things to set up but I persevered and started to find my way around the camera, its all a big learning curve but it will be worth it once I have figured it all out.
Now using the manual lens on the X-T1 is causing me some grief regarding blurry images but that is me as I can't stay still and always move when taking a pic, okay I do get some good shots but think that was luck really. So instead of relying on the 55mm F/1.8, I have bought a Fuji 16-50mm from fleabay so it should be with me soon. Have heard it is a very good lens despite it being made of plastic but it will do for now until I get to grips fully with the X-T1
Have also ordered the Fuji MHG-XT Large grip to help with comfort as I have large hands and at the moment it feels uncomfortable to hold, also ordered an RR-90 remote cable release.
Overall I do like the X-T1, its small, solidly built, set out like an old 35mm film camera, nice LCD rear screen, big bright viewfinder which I love and the film simulations. As time goes on no doubt I will fall in love with other things with the X-T1.
Also, I decided to go back to college and pursue my love for photography so at the moment I am doing my HNC in Photography having completed my NC last year, if all goes well this term I am hoping to be on the HND course after that but still deciding whether to pursue a Degree after the HND as photography is a hobby for me, well for now it is but things do change.
Oh and I am the oldest in class, again lol

Can anyone think of a way to shoot a 60 day time lapse? I want to capture the disassembly and reassembly of an aircraft during an annual servicing. I won't be there for 2 weeks so I cannot start the camera off manually each day. I'd like to set up and forget. Aren't the Fuji's limited to 24 hours? and I'd prefer to shoot with the X-T20…
I’d like to upgrade from my fullly manual Yongnuo to a Godox V860 so I can shoot faster than 1/250 and take advantage of some TTL metering. The metering is the big one I’m after.
Has anyone tried this flash on their X-T3?
Thanks!!…
Walkstool – portable stool. I’ve had 4 surgeries on my right hip, which does cause me to use a cane on long walks/hiking. Most of my photography is event photography, and I get along fine without the cane. For longer hikes and outdoor events, such as photographing bicycle races, I’ll use the cane, but after a while I’m in a lot of pain from standing so long.
In a couple of days I’m headed to Acadia National Park for a week long photography trip. I’m going with 3 other photographers, one who has been there 5 times, and has an extensive detailed plan on where to shoot, depending on weather and the light. Of course, I do not want to hold them back, and I’ll be fine walking, but worry about being able to stand for long periods of time at the tripod. So I was looking for a lightweight stool to use, and I came across the ‘Walkstool’ on B&H Photo. I ordered one, and I think it’s going to be ideal for those times that I need to rest. It folds up small .. around 18 inches … and weighs less than 2 pounds. The one I have extends to 26 inches, which is perfect for me (my big butt fits fine). Even with this stool, my tripod, and backpack, I’ll be carrying less weight that the other 3 full frame canon shooters

This Monday I had swapped over from my X-H1 with battery grip to the X-T3 with battery grip.
I will miss the IBIS for sure, but a good gimbal and tripod will compensate, however nothing could compensate for the more advanced AF and 10 bit 60fps internal video. When the X-H2 comes out, I will seriously consider it, but for now the X-T3 had won me over.
Yesterday I went in my wife's garden to do my first ever impromptu video test with the X-T3. I don't have the gimbal so this was either hand held or on on sticks.
First clips were on Vivid film sim as it was overcast, but then I switched to Std. Video was shot at 4k 50fps and cut on FCPX and exported at 4k 25fps. FCPX and my iMac had no problems editing the H.265 10 bit 4k internally recorded files, which gave a great IQ and 4 minutes only used 3.3GB of storage.
Here is my 1st little video:

I bought this lens new from B&H in Sept 2018. Has been working fine but today I can't get the manual focus ring to do anything. The ring turns fine but I don't see the "barrell" moving in and out and the item I am focusing on does not move in and out of focus with turning the ring. I have the xpro2 body set to M and not S or C. The firmware version is 1.0 which appears to be the latest available for this lens. Any thoughts?…

Ocracoke Lighthouse
X-E2 18mm f/2 Still love its rendering.
First picture I took of this lighthouse was 42 years ago on our first visit here. My favorite so far. We've been returning to the Outer Banks ever since broken by an 18 year hiatus ending in 2010. 9th consecutive year returning. Hatteras Island is where we stay but a ferry ride to Ocracoke is obligatory. Got to love the beach to love lower Outer Banks because there isn't a whole lot else.

Forum folks. Have new X-T3. Tried several different lenses, do NOT have dynamic range set to auto. All other settings mirror my X-T2 which works, including the obvious: A on lens, A on ISO, A on shutter speed, 0 on comp exposure dial.
My display shows “A” not “P”. What am I missing or, do I have a defect? (I imagine this is unlikely, but need to be sure within time to return.) I have tried everything to determine why this is not displaying A.
Appreciate someone helping me troubleshoot.
***Think this unrelated, but I do Not fully understand the difference of the old XT2 and new XT3 cameras' menu setting for the Command Dial Setting. (The new XT3 menu suggests 3 successive pushes of the front button will shift between (mine set to 1 F, 2 exp comp, and 3 ISO; back command SS. ) My front command dial DOES seem to effect reciprocal changes in the programming by changing aperture.. BUT it says A. (I can’t see how to make it control the other 2 (exp comp or ISO as the menu setting in button/dial suggests it can and should.)
Thanks so much!

New member here, new Fuji user.
I just bought an X-T3 and love it, except... Half a dozen times in the week I've owned the camera, it has locked up. Sometimes this happens when the screen is on, sometimes when the camera is asleep (and won't wake up). Nothing except removing the battery will unlock it. Before buying, I saw the same behavior discussed in a couple reviews of the camera. When I first turned it on after buying it, the setup prompted me to update the firmware, which I did.
I'm going to return the camera, but I'm deciding whether or not to replace it with another X-T3. I'm wondering how common this behavior is.
This is unfortunate as, in most other respects, I really like the camera and prefer it over my current system…
