I spent an hour or so wandering around Balboa Park in San Diego early Saturday evening, and without actually trying I wound up with a little collection of people taking photos. All shot with the X-Pro2 and XF35 F2 (which has quickly become my favorite walking-around camera). Acros-Y JPGs. Some are cropped, and occasionally added some vignetting.
More in the next post…

At sunset last night, looking out at the Pacific Ocean from Coronado (San Diego), California. It was a beautiful evening to be out there.

Apparently we weren't the only ones watching the sunset.

I love acros with red filter setting. I load the raw file into LR and its color but when I use the LR fuji simulation the image is not the same as the in camera Acros setting. How have people been printing Acros images ?

I do.
Put my X-T2 in my camera bag. Fairly tight squeeze as I had two flashes and two additional lenses sitting in there pretty snug. Zipped up, went for a walk. Came back, pulled out the camera. It was hot. What in Hades??? Something wrong with the grip? Short circuit somewhere? Hmmm. Turned on the viewer/playback mode. Black screen. Oh, tarnation. The screen's out! Wait, no, there's EXIF data for the black snapshot. Black snapshot? What? Wait, how many are there...too many to count.
The tight squeeze was actually depressing the shutter button. 11,500 black shots.
There. Next time you're feeling a little daft about some little mistake you made, remember me.

I have experimenting with these and I have some questions. My understanding is that they are both film simulations. Acros seems to have a bit more contrast and monochrome seems more uniform in tonality throughout the image. I was wondering if someone could explain some more of the distinctions. I have been using Acros with the Red Filter and it is just gorgeous.

I managed to pick one of these up from ebay at a sensible price - intrigued to try these older takumar lenses
on the fuji, and also never used a preset style lens before. can't believe how tiny this thing's almost like a rangefinder lens in size...
first test shots show it has promise.

We made a night visit to the monastery on Montserrat so my partner could listen to the sung vespers. My son and I walked out in the dark to the cross of St Michael. It's about a 25 min walk quite steeply uphill between evergreen oak woods where there were loud snuffling and cracking sounds and the occasional owl call. I took this photo on the way back, the cross is high to the right. The rocks are lit by the monastery lights, the glow in the sky behind is the loom of the industrial town of Martorell.

My partner is selling his Pentax and replacing with a Fuji so we can share lenses (I may struggle with this part). He will immediately get the 18-55 zoom that came with my x-t20 and will probably want to add a longer zoom in time.
He had his Pentax for three years and only took 628 photos! So is less of an enthusiast, but might be inspired by Fuji greatness. We are not sure which of the previous generation to opt for, but he prefers the layout of the t1 and t10 so restricting choice to either of these.
Would appreciate views on what is best value, thanks…
Just wondering if you can use the Canon 580EX as a slave from the Nissin i60 ?
I can trigger the i60 with the 580 - but I just don't seem to be able to trigger the 580 with the i60.?
Any ideas
Thanks all…

Looking towards Tromsø from about 50 mins drive south. Xf 14mm 25 secs. I walked in with a torch to light the road which I thought might improve it a bit. I have seen the lights before whilst on a diving trip to the Shetlands, but didn’t have a camera and they were much more faint than this. There is a lot of light pollution but I cannot complain. Plenty of people sharing my flight home never saw them at all…

Fuji X-T1, ISO 200, 1/1000ss, Aperture Priority, 18-55mm lens f4.5 at 55mm focal length.
My lady is all bundled up and ready for a brisk walk in 7f temperatures in the snow near Chicago, Illinois. As shown in Please login or register to view links, just four days earlier we were enjoying low 70f temps on the motorcycle in Arizona. A few days before our trip David had postedPlease login or register to view linkswhich showed what we could expect.
How cold is it? The Chicago river has frozen. Due to it’s high levels of pollution, it was once said that alcohol would freeze before the Chicago River froze…

I'm entirely new to photography and got a Fuji X-T20 last year. I've uploaded some images form the last few months, I'm wondering if anyone can spot any blatant mistakes in my pictures. I'm still trying to get my head around aperature, ISO and shutter speed lol - I have been shooting manually to learn from it.

Thanks to anyone who takes a look!
I'm using the Nissin i60a with my X-T2. I'm wondering how metering modes, and focus point affect the flash metering.
If I understand correctly, the Nissin uses a preflash to determine the correct amount of flash (ETTL). But does it use the metering mode (Spot, Average, Center Weighted) that the X-T2 is set to and the focus point that the camera is set to (single or multi).
Any explanation or pointers to resources on this greatly appreciated…

I hope to post some photographs, offer advice if I can and give some gentle opinions before too long

I'm constantly getting this message displayed on my Android phone's system screen when the phone is in locked state.
This is new with the latest BT enabled Camera Remote app version, and I guess this refers to the app's capability to link with a Bluetooth transceiver on a Fuji camera. Since I don't own a BT enabled Fuji camera, I'm constantly having this error message displayed on my phone, and it won't go away.
Does anybody know how to get rid of this message?…

Fine morning at low tide yesterday where the Ogmore river meets the sea. The river was rushing past over the pebbles towards the ocean just a hundred metres away, with a narrow strip of smooth sand separating it from the most serene of calm pools with a few large pebbles just breaking the surface. Job for the X70 and small tripod to capture the contrast between calm and turbulence, I thought:

Why is it that colors appear so different between different raw converters?
White balance is one thing, but the colors themselves are sometimes nuts when comparing side-by-side.
Here are some examples taken during my sister's "confirmation" (Not really sure if that's the english name?):
LR default on the left, Silkypix default on the right
LR provia on the left, Silkypix provia on the right
RawTherapee with ICM/DCP profile on the left, RawTherapee with provia on the right
The first example, is that a blown blue channel? I can't remember if the strobes were powerful enough to create a solid white against the blue backdrop.
I'm not trying to start a war between raw converters, but I would like to learn more about how they deal with colors.. Seeing as they are so different…
