Title pretty much says it. How do I set the aperture on an X-T20 (for aperture priority autoexposure) with a lens that has no aperture ring, such as the 50-230mm?…

I don't have any Fuji lenses and planned on using my Canon FD film lenses for my [used] XE2. Like my Sony NEX, I planned on just keeping it in "S" or "M" mode so I dictate the ISO and shutter speed via camera and the aperture via the film lenses. This has been maddening because I set the XE2's command dial to change the "S.S"...which works on "T" dial up top. So I can go the full spectrum of 30"-1/4000th. I also have my ISO set to anything I want (not Auto or bracketed). Since there is no method to change the aperture, I can't change that.
My problem is that somewhere, the camera is taking over and overriding MY settings. Shutter I think because I have done the same exact image on a tripod, had ISO 200 with SS@1/200 (let's say) and take a shot. Then I'll take the same shot but with ISO 1600 and SS@1/1000 and I get the SAME image. There is NO possible way this can happen in what is supposed to be full manual. But if I pull up the JPEG and RAW files up, they both tell me the settings I had set.
Now, I did a test with movement and even though I have the "T" setting on the shutter dial and move the shutter to 1/1000th on the command dial at let's say ISO 200, I still get blur like it was at 1/20th SS. So even though the camera EXIF is stating 1/1000th, it's actually shooting at a far slower shutter speed. So either the camera is choosing the shutter for me regardless of the shutter I ASK it to do, or it's changing the ISO from what I ASK it to be at. The camera was at FW 4.0 and updated it to 4.1. I've done two resets and the problem still exists. I do have some control if I put the shutter dial to 1/200 with ISO 200, its a dark photo like I expect it to. But when change it to something that would be way over or under exposed, the camera still decides to kick in some auto function and produce a properly exposed photo. In the end, I cannot make a black photo or white photo via the settings by experimentation.
Thank you in advance…

Should be approximately equivalent to a 16 mm. Taking advantage of the late afternoon light.

I took this photo at Jasper national park in Canada. Originally I processed it in color to recover the cold icy blue of the water. But later I find my self enjoying it in black and white too. Especially since the colors are just not that interesting in the sky and mountains. What do you guys think?

Hi guys, forum newbie here. As stated in my intro I´m the happy shooter of an X-T2 with the 18-55 kit lens and it looks like a 55-200 will soon join the fold. I want to get a decent ND filter to shoot some daylight long exposures on running water, rolling clouds and such and recently learned about variable nd filters which seemed like a great alternative to having multiple filters (my current 0.9 nd filter barely does the job), however I have read that variable nd filters might produce unwanted effects like dull colors and low contrast.
So wondering if going with a 9 or 10 stop nd filter might be a safer bet instead.
Your thoughts are greatly appreciated!
BTW just learned about step up adapters which made my day regarding not having to buy separate filters for lenses…

It's been a long time since I've posted here, probably about two years. I sold all my Fuji gear and went back to Nikon. Well, I'm back to Fuji again! hahaha
I used to have an X-Pro 1 and a X-T1 with the 18 and 35 Fujinon lenses as well as a Rokinon 12mm. This time around I'm using a X-T2 with the Fujinon 16-55 f/2.8 R LM WR. My personal lens roadmap will be the 50-140 next, possibly the 23 and 56 primes and the Rokinon 12mm for ultra-wide/nightscape since I do a lot of night sky photography in the spring and summer months.
This scene is from my walk back from dropping off my child at school. We had our 2nd snow system of the season drop about 10cm+ on us for much of the day yesterday and into the night. I couldn't leave the trusty X-T2 at home!!!

Took this shot at a show at Jazz Alley in Seattle. Nice venue and they are good with photography as long as you don't use flash. X-T2 90mm if anyone was wondering.
I shared it with the artist. He asked for permission to use the images. We didn't discuss conditons of use per se. He stated if used I would receive attribution for the capture.
My assumption was that it would be for his use - not for any companies that he might be endorsed by.
Honestly I’m more flattered than upset since this is purely a hobby for me. As a part time musician I do plenty of gigs for fun, food or cocktails so it really isn’t about the money.
I wouldn’t mind a big discount on the gear to be honest :D since I don't play flute often and I have a wireless saxophone mic setup already. SD makes a sax mic and the sound is superior to my setup but it is less convenient to use.
I’m not inclined to make a big fuss about but seeking your collective feedback.
Here's the poster. My capture is of Jeff Kashiwa playing the flute.

When shooting at 1/250, my XPro-2 does not always sync properly. I get a small amount of "black bar" at the bottom. This occurs maybe 20% of the time.
Slowing the shutter to 1/125 takes care of the issue, and I really don't need 1/250, but I'd like the camera to be able to shoot at that speed anyway.
This happens both with on camera and off camera flash, and when using more than one type (brand) of strobe or speedlite and triggers. S0, it's the camera.
Any solutions?

The Ilen was built in 1926 in Baltimore SW Ireland. It spent its life as a trading vessel in the Falkland islands until it was returned to Baltimore for a rebuild. It has been ten years in the 'upper shed', completely rebuilt with just a few of the original timbers remaining. It will exit the shed shortly and spend a few months outside while the engine and other systems are fitted. Here are some photos of the work today.
I found this challenging to photograph, firstly there is a good bit of work pressure so the idiot with the camera isn't much appreciated! The light is brutal and mostly the guys are in constant movement very close to the lens. I was trying to shoot at f4 for some depth of field but the initial photos were mostly blurred. Eventually I used ISO 3000 which has come out grainy, especially with skin tone.
Any advice? (I don't want to use a flash.)
Edit. X100

...regret getting myself the X Pro 2 for Christmas. I’ve been playing around with the X100F for a few weeks and am really digging it. I got the XP2 to use the lens and get better AF from my XP1. I also thought I’d be too constrained by the single field of view. I’m surprised it hasn’t been an issue yet at all.
im sure I’ll love the XP2 but if I were making the decision today I’d have skipped it and maybe just gotten the 90 and 14 for my XP1…

I noticed a dark spot on the upper right corner of the images from my 23mm (only showed when using very small aperture). At first I thought it was something on the sensor, but the sensor looked clean and it didn't show on the images with another lens. (I had a similar experience with the 63mm, but luckily at that time it was a black paint outside the lens so I clean it with a blower.)
Does anybody know any Fuji authorized repair center in Northern California? I couldn't find it on their web site. Is shipping back to their New Jersey repair center the only option?
Thanks,

Hi guys! I have decided to sell my 23mm f1.4 as I have not been able to bond with it the way I thought I would. It takes lovely photos, but it is too big for my taste. Now I am debating whether to get an x100T or buy a 23mm f2 for my xpro-1. My heart wants an X100T but if a 23mm f2 for my Xpro-1 would give me an advantage when it comes to grabbing focus in dim lighting, I might go with that option instead, since my most loved subjects are my two sons. What do you guys think, which option gives better af speed and accuracy in low light?…

Hi, all,
I need to do some 360-degree panoramic photos on our campus -- similar to what one would get with the Ricoh Theta, but higher resolution. I've tested my Canon with the 15mm "full frame" fisheye, and it works well, but I'd like to use my Fuji kit for this.
The Please login or register to view links -- it has excellent reviews and would do the job. Now that I look through Amazon, however, I see several additional choices:

Hello, X-T2 shooter, and currently own the 10-24. My primary interests for shooting are landscapes/nature ( would like to do night/astro more) although I don't do a ton of wild-life (at least not yet); behind that are street/travel, and a distant third is family photography. I will almost always be shooting my landscapes with a tripod.
I am looking for a new lens to complement the 10-24 that I currently own. I feel that I have the wide end covered, and am looking at something more in the telephoto range to get nice image compression, especially in the mountains. Weather sealing is an almost must for me, as I will be backpacking with these lenses and shooting in rather unprotected areas. Here are a short list of what I've thought of so far:
50 f2 - Super sharp from the sound of it, very light and compact, fast enough for night/astro work. Pretty good bokeh and DOF for the street and family work. Downside: It's not that long, and is a prime so is just less versatile.
90 f2 - Same as above. Downside, again it's a long prime and I worry about situations where I can't use my legs to step back and get a wider shot. Also worry it's too long for family pictures, especially indoors.
50-140 - Great image quality, although probably less than the above primes. It's a zoom for more versatile. Downside: Expensive, very heavy to backpack around with.
55-200 - Had been considering this for a while because of lightweight and it's cheap; however, it's not weather sealed, the image quality I've seen is objectively worse than the above, and it's too slow for night/astro work.
Would love your opinions on these or other lenses to consider! Thanks…

Recently I heard about a couple of “celebrity” dogs opening a fair. Their fame was because they were apparently an “internet sensation”, nice enough dogs and no doubt delightful to look at if you like that kind of thing.
What people look at when on the internet is a curious thing. There are a multitude of interesting and amazing things to look at; works of art, spectacular events, deeds of heroism and maybe just one or two cute dog or cat videos.
Now to my picture, before you start looking for a dog in it, in a “Where’s Wally” kind of way, I have to confess that this is very much “Fake News”, there is no dog. But did I get your attention?

This picture was made near the Ouse Bridge at Bassenthwaite (Cumbria, UK) just as dawn was filling the morning sky with golden light. I used my Fuji X-Pro2 with the 90mm lens. No filters, this is straight but shot on the Velvia settings.
The early morning mist was still lingering in the air, slightly softening the trees and fells in the distance. It was freezing cold, the frozen leaves crunched underfoot and the air stung my cheeks but the light was amazing for a few minutes until the sun broke free and filled the landscape with bright morning light.
Sorry dog lovers, no dogs on display!…

Hello everyone,
After 7 years of shooting Nikon I sold all my gear and bought Fuji. The reason for this is the size and weight, I am a hobbyist and when I travel with my family it started to look somewhat silly when my wife and two kids wait so I can shoot, and change lenses. It is not only about our vacations, but I often bring my backpack to the beach, and then I need to be careful with the sand, then again to watch for my gear not to be stolen and so on.
After few months of researching and watching all kinds of videos, and reading reviews I decided to buy X-T20 with 18-55 f2.8-4 lens and use it beside my Nikon gear and then decide whether it will suit my needs, because I had some doubts with EVF size and usability, then I thought X-T20 will be too small for my hands.
And then I entered the loop, I spent 4 days testing both cameras, looking in to photos, pixel peeping, but I was unable to make a decision because everything I have thought it will be the problem was actually great, EVF is superb, the size is great, but that kit lens was no match for Sigma 17-50 f2.8 I have on my D7100. No matter what I do, that Sigma is much sharper wide open than Fujinon zoom at f8. Then there is that sensor noise even at base ISO, and that horrible Lightroom sharpening workflow.
Then at fifth day when I saw it blocked my brain totally, I sold Nikon and 4 lenses and bought X-T20, 18-55 zoom, 30mm f2, and 56mm f1.2, and stoped comparing systems and started enjoying my new toy.
Today, ten days later I am still happy, but somehow I believe my Nikon photos were sharper, I believe they had less noise, also noise was smoother, and Nikon files can be sharpened easier.
As I said, I do not have Nikon anymore so I can not enter another loop and make detailed comparison, which is good, but somehow I do not see why everyone is thrilled about Fuji sensor, and Fujinon lenses, to my eyes the sensor is noisy even at base ISO, and lenses are not very sharp.
So my question is what do you think about it, did I enter another pixel peeping loop?
Also, what do you think about Iridient X-Transformer and Lightroom workflow?…
