Yesterday, I went to the Portland Art Museum with three photo friends. I saw this frosted glass and had them each take a turn for a portrait. What do you think?
I used Silver Efex.

I had an issue and found the resolution so here it is if anyone else has this oddball behavior.
The information in the VF would disappear after my eye was at it for a 1/2 second or so, and reappear when I half pressed the shutter release.
After going a bit nutty, I found the simple answer of just pressing the "Display/Back" button one time. It reset whatever was causing this minor malfunction.

Folks,
I am new to the Fuji system and am having trouble with the front dial on my Xt-20 which I use for exposure compensation.
I know that there are two ways of using this, switching after depressing it: Exposure Comp and setting the aperture where it is appropriate.
However, I find it extremely frustrating to rotate the dial for Exp Comp, with it slipping between the two modes. Repressing often doesn't seem to help.
Am I just pressing too hard when I use the dial or is the response of my camera faulty?
Perplexed,
Richard…

During a 3 week trip to and stay in Hatteras Village on the Outer Banks of NC I posted some pictures that had spots. I was using a computer with small screen and just seeking to post a few shots from the trip expecting to do the heaving lifting of processing when I returned home. I was abashed and somewhat sheepish that I didn't notice. I used a Rocket Blower on the sensor and cleaned the rear element on any lens I put on. The most likely culprit in my estimation was dust on the rear elements because, for a variety of reasons, I was not being nearly as careful as I normally am when changing lenses. Since returning home I just shot a white page and inspected for spots on the sensor finding none.
I'm curious, how often do folks inspect the rear element of any lens they are attaching. Do you find problems? They would be worse on long lenses would they not?…

Dear people,
Is there a possibility to transfer a photo from the fujifilm x100f through the ios app on high quality. I have the feeling that the fine jpg is not transferred on full resolution. It’s a pity, because this way I can’t make use of the full possibility of lightroom cc.
In the manual I can’t find it or in the settings of the app.
Somebody a solution?…

Hi,
yesterday I was shooting a wedding and I had some issues with the 56mm 1,2.
I like to be able to switch between back button AF and normal shutter AF. The fastest way is to leave the AF on on the shutter button and switch to MF to use the back button focus techqinue ...
Problem is when I am in MF and focus with the AF-L button, then when I press the shutter the camera doesnt take the picture immediately but the focus moves back and forth for a second and then takes the shot, the same doesn t happen if I disable the AF on the shutter button and keep the camera in AF... to me it should be the same...the focus is locked and the camera should take the picture immediately... why the camera moves fastly the focus back and forth in MF before taking the shot...?…

A very recent thread by 321estrellas offered a good discussion of this question from the other side. This Fuji user told us he wanted to decide if he should keep BOTH his x70 and his X100(I think "T")
My question is: do I buy a used x70 to go with my other Fuji gear and go out the door in a smaller pocket?
I shoot street, scenes, portraits, and some events with my wonderful x100T. It's one of the cameras I take with me everywhere. I have and also love an XPro-2. I put up with an XPro-1 that is interesting but makes me crazy sometimes. OK, I obviously like this gear because I have an X-T2 and grip, too. Recently sold my X-E2. But these other rigs are not part of this question.
Your feedback will help.
I just missed an eBay x70 unit which appeared to selling for $400US but well-organized buyers - perhaps with sniping software - took it up to almost $500 in the space of the last few minutes. So these bodies have held their value! Current new price here in the US seems to be $700. I also know I'd want an optical viewfinder to place on top. Another viewfinder brand -- that might not be suitable in some hard-to-predict way - is approximately $80 with the Fuji unit $150 minimum.
Perhaps the best route is to swap my x100T's Leica-style vented hood for one of those low-profile shroud hoods (small circle opening behind which the lens sees the world) and make my 100 fit into more of my pockets. My desired optical viewfinder -- offering WAY more tricks -- is already embedded in that body.
I do already take either the x100T or the XPro-2 out the door every time I leave the house. (I love the 35mm f1.4 and that's the alternative lens.)
But the Ricoh GR-like simplicity of the smaller camera is an interesting alternative. The dedicated x70 thread pinned at the top of this forum is full of compelling images. I could get used to the 28mm equivalancy. I did have the 18mm f2 for a while and often shoot with 24mm equivalent on Fuji and my Canons (FF). With value holding I could sell the camera if I tried it. (By the way, there well might not be an x80 judging from the lack of rumors.)
Long-winded post... I am torn and I could buy a 23mm f1.4 for the XP2 for about the same $$. This - for flexibility and sharper results in low light - has been a separate thought…

I want to copy 35mm slides and 35mm negatives using either my 55mm f3.5 macro or a 60mm macro from Nikon with the ES-1 adapter.
Now the question is will mounting a Nikkor lens on my Fuji Xpro-1 affect the focus distance for copying slides due to the nikon to fuji adapter?…

Does anyone know how to verify the number of photos on the sd card of my x-t20?
I can see how many shots until the card is full but not the shots taken.

My card reader stopped working, so I hooked up mini-usb to usb cable direct from camera to iMac.
A file or icon doesn't show up on desktop indicating camera is connected.
I have Silkypix raw file converter, PS4, and Silver Efex.
None of these programs recognize the camera is connected so I can't find my recent photos from today.
What am I doing wrong? Would iPhoto (which I never use) be causing conflict? Because when camera is connected direct to iMac and I turn on camera iPhoto pops up but I close it since I don't use it. How can I disable iPhoto for future anyway.
I have a nice camera and older iMac but I'm a beginner in many ways. I need directions for you folks how to get my recent photos directly from camera connected to iMac w/ usb cable…

My friend is a musician, toy inventor, and creative artist. He's also a great fan of Buckminster Fuller.
One of my friend's recent creations is a large geodesic ball. One of his challenges on this project was the fixtures at each tube's vertices which he had cut out of aluminum plate using a water jet machine. When the wind kicks up, the ball will usually start spinning slowly on its ball-bearing axles which is quite intriguing.
I took this photo at dusk using two speedlights. X-T2 and 14mm f/2.8.

Hi guys. I recently went on a trip with my family and shot some videos with my X70. But I'm disappointed when I saw how bad the artifacts were when I watched them at home. Am I missing something with post-processing? Do I need to uncompress the videos? The screenshot below is shot with 1080p at 60fps. ISO is set to 400. I was hoping to slowmo some footage but I don't think the quality of most of my capture is usable for edit. Any help would be appreciated.

I recently bought a new Fuji 16mm 1.4 lens after reading glowing reviews about it. However, for the price I am disappointed.
First, is the build quality. It's a heavy and solid all metal lens. However, the tolerances seem to be much looser than any other fuji lens I have. I have the 18-55mm kit lens, the 35mm f2 and a samyang 12mm f2. Every one of those lenses has a solid aperature ring. The 16mm has a wobbly aperature ring. Every one of those lenses also has a good manual focus ring. The 16mm one feels much looser.
Second, looser tolerances aside I was expecting the pictures to be much sharper. I am pixel peeping, however, the 35mm lens is noticeably sharper than the 16mm. I was expecting at the very least that this would be the sharpest lens from what I read in reviews. Is the 35mm f2 a sharper lens than the 16mm?
Did I get a bad copy or were my expectations too high?…

I have always used Silver Efex Pro for my b/w conversions and processing. But because Google will not be updating its NIK plugins anymore, I'm sure that down the road at some point when operating systems get updated the NIK plugins will not function properly. So, I need to develop (sorry about that) a different workflow. With the advent of the new Lightroom Classic (please, please refrain from comments bashing Adobe for the new Lightrooms) and the new 'refine' functionality for selections, it's become much more attractive as a possibility. As for now, it's pretty slow and tedious but I'm hoping that with time and experience my skills will improve.
This first shot was made with the NIK plugin:
171008_050_sep2.jpg
And this was done this afternoon in Lightroom Classic:
171008_050.jpg
I tried to get the second shot as close to the first as possible. On my screen there is some difference but I'm not sure that it will be so evident with this post.
How well do they compare? Preferences? Opinions (except for comments on the 'religious' content)?…

Using a Godox TT685F on a X-T2. Everything seems to be working except when changing zoom on 18-55, there is not an indication of zoom length on the Gordox Unit. The length shown is 24mm (Zn/CFn is set to feet and tried zoom at each of the two settings) on the Godox unit and the distance scale at the bottom of the Godox screen shows
1.2 to 60 feet. Camera settings are as follows:
Flash Function - TTL
Red Eye Removal - Off
TTL lock mode - Metering flash
LED Light Setting - AF Assist
Two settings, Master Setting and CH Setting ,are grayed out. Cannot figure how to turn them on. Can anyone help me with this problem.
As noted previously in this forum I am 77yo and step by step instructions would be helpful.
Thank you in advance for any advice…

My father was seriously wounded by sniper machine gun fire 14 days before the end of WWII while driving a Jeep leading a US convoy of vehicles from France into Germany. He was then taken back into France where he spent time in the hospital where Princess Di died. This is a photo of my dad in front of the 8 or 40 French box car which has been restored and is on display here in Scottsdale, Arizona. This is one of Please login or register to view links as thanks for the US contributions to winning the war and of relief efforts after WWII. Dad can also be seen reading the story about these cars which delineates how each of them was loaded with gifts, many of them hand made, from the French people. I do not know if other countries showed such thanks but the people of France did and at a time when they were at their lowest. Whenever I read on social media that some person is unhappy with the French folks for not supporting a current US position on some issue I think of these cars and of course our Statue of Liberty which was a gift from France and I realize that like some marriages, relationships are not always harmonious but good ones do endure. And of course for may years Chevrolet Corvette, which is my automotive brand of choice, used the Fleur-de-lis on may of their car emblems.
