This is for information, for those interested in photo books.
Every year I make a family year photobook, previously I used a company which was pretty good, but for this year I opted for Fuji and got an extra 12 pages for the same cost as the previous company, also, the site is very easy to use, very flexible for creating different layouts & backgrounds. The photos are quick to upload on Apple and your project can be saved for 2 months, also copied and renewed.
This is my Christmas shopping, make the photo book, order 12 copies and wait for the mail.
Simples!

X-E2 and 18-55 kit lens, taken at a white collar boxing match. B&W and most edits done in LR, a bit of PS work to remove nits here and there.

Last week, I met a young lady for some portraits. I went to my favorite spot the Portland Art Museum. There we spend the afternoon. I had a great time and Anna got nice portraits to share with her family.

I won 2 Leica M Lenses, the 24 mm Elmarit 2,8 and the 40 mm Summary 2,4. I use both on my Fujis (x-Pro 2 and XT 2). Would love to "compare notes" with other Fuji photographers who use these and other Leica Lenses. If I compare them with my Fuji Glass, I find it difficult to see a difference in quality... What is definitely different is the handling of these lenses (manual focus) and the build quality which is good with Fuji but extraordinarily good with the Leica. What is the best set-up to fully exploit the quality of the Leica lenses?…

Hi, I have an XT 1 and an X70 and I am thinking of buying an X Pro 1 to add to the collection, however I am a bit concerned about the lack of an Eye Diopter Adjuster on the Xpro 1, I wear glasses and also contact lenses and I and have my XT 1 adjusted so I can clearly see through the viewfinder, however I am worried that I might struggle with the lack of adjustment on the xpro 1. I know you can buy corrected diopters but Im not sure if I will need this or not (as I normally wear my contact lenses when I am shooting)
I would be interested to hear from anybody who has used this camera and wear glasses/contact lenses if they found it to be a problem or not?
Will I just have to get it as close as possible and then just live with it or is not really a problem?
Thanks for your help…

I thought it might be a good time to get a general adapted lens thread going, just to see the range of what people are doing with adapted lenses on Fuji cameras these days. Here's one made with a Vivitar 20mm/3.5 M-42 mount lens on my Fuji X-E2. Hand-held at 1/140 second, 1600 ISO, stopped down pretty far (f11 or f16) and processed vigorously in Lightroom.

We've had a few flurries up to now, but nothing to write home about. This morning we got our first snow (granted, not much) that actually "stuck" for awhile. X-E2, XC50-230.

I'm just learning the capabilities of the X100F.
Can you please point me in the right direction to learn about the lens converters? I've read that there are approximately 3 different focal lengths with converters. My apologies if I'm not articulating this well…

Hello altogether,
I am currently thinking about booking a trek up the Kilimanjaro in Africa. It is not finally decided yet, but I wondered how I can use my X-Pro2 there.
If I book this travel my trip will be like this:
The route will take me up the Kilimanjaro via the longer Lemosho route. It will be cold at the top (like really cold, -15°C) and I will be without electricity for eight days or seven nights. Then I will be in a hotel for two days, one night. And leave for a Safari for another five days or four nights.
We all know that Fuji cameras have mediocre power management and batteries. And yes, spare batteries are cheap. But there is a reason that fellow photographers call it "my camera did a Fuji" when their batteries die surprisingly... .
I will be able to limit myself to one battery a day. I am hiking, panting and crawling up this mountain up to 5895m above sea level, it will not be mad full time photography. But still, it will be a once in a lifetime experience.
Would you carry something like ten fully charged batteries for such a trip? Would you carry even more batteries? They are small and reasonably light. Or has anyone tried a large power bank and one of these patona chargers that will also accept USB-in as a power source?
Hmm, this definitely was an advantage of my old Canon EOS 5DII. The batteries lasted days, even when hiking on glaciers. And my old Canon batteries were kept warm inside my sleeping bag at night. No problem as I needed only three of them for a whole week of mountaineering. But a bag full of batteries ... .
Has anyone done this trek with a Fuji X-camera?
Best regards,
Thomas…

Fall is waning here in the PNW, the nice weather is becoming rare and it will not be long until it rains more often than not. That said, fall is beautiful and its sad to see it fade.

Found this old truck in the mountains of northern New Mexico and happened to be there for the first snow of the season. XT-2, 18-55 at 28mm, f9, 1/1600. A little vignetting applied in LR Classic CC.
I'm reluctant to call this a landscape, but not sure what else to call it.

I received a 2nd hand X-T1, a new 55-200 and a used 10-24 yesterday. The used lens is in lovely condition. I want the X-T1 as a backup to my X-T2. It was described as in excellent condition and I paid a healthy price for it (£450). I got a very good price for my traded in Nikon camera.
The camera is clean but looks like it's been given a good clean recently. It is pretty scuff free and seems to function well but my concern is that the soft rubber on the right hand side in the front is coming away from the body and its quite worn front and rear too. I'm concerned that this may indicate a very large amount of use.

Hi,
I’ve been using both Nikon and Fuji X series for a while now but recently took the plunge to sell-up my Nikon gear and fully commit to Fuji! It’s sad to see my favourite Nikkor lenses go but being on the fence wasn’t good either.
Looking forward to learning and getting advice from this forum!
Thanks,
Kaz…

Normally, I'm not too quick to jump on any new bandwagon, but when my favorite browser auto-updated to its latest version - Please login or register to view links - I couldn't help to be impressed. It's about four times as fast as previous versions and any competing browsers I have in use (Edge, Chrome, Internet Explorer etc).
Try it, you'll feel as if you had a new computer!
Please tell me if you like it, or if you have found any new tricks…

This evening after coming back from a day out I noticed when I was cleaning lenses etc that I had a hot pixel on my lcd. After checking taking pics with lens cap on and in a dark room the pixel was not on the image. I noticed it wasn’t on the lcd either. I reset all settings and it disappeared. After changing all settings back to my custom prefs I noticed it came back when using high performance mode.
I’m on the latest firmware 1.02 so cant go higher. Anyone else experienced this?
I did send an X-T1 in for pixel mapping but they were clearly visible when looking at the shots on a screen after processing the card…
I was a member here a few years ago, but moved away from Fuji X cameras into Sigma Quattros. I loved those cameras, but the software drove me crazy. So, I've returned to Fuji, and have an X-T20, currently with the 16-50 XC lens, while I save up for a couple of higher-quality lenses.
So, why can't I use a film simulation when in Auto mode?
Also, when out of auto, and using the front wheel to change aperture, the screen shows blue figures of f3.5 through to f22, but then changes to a red f3.5. That red 3.5 works, but why have it there at all?
And when setting the shutter speed dial to 1, then using the back wheel for subdivisions, it goes from 1.6, 1.3, then 1", 1.3", and finally 1.5". Why not 0.5?…

Guthrie was the territorial capital at one time. Then Oklahoma City, in the dead of night, I'm thinking around 1910, sneaked in and stole the state seal.
Oklahoma City became the new capital..
Guthrie is about 45 minutes north of Oklahoma City, or around 30 miles. I spent time there going around and around trying to find the old capitol building and never got the job done. I believe the "now" Masonic temple used to be the capitol.
Anyway, as I toured a few blocks in my hunt, once I gave up and started to leave, I spotted this old, gorgeous house. Around the block and parked. One view is the side, the other the front. The light was challenging because it was the 12 noon to 1 p.m. time, I wasted a lot of time asking questions of people on the street who said, "I don't know, I'm not from here!"
I did the best I could.
