The electronic shutter on my x-t20 seems a lot less prone to warped images than on my old x-t1. On the x-t1 the slightest bit of movement seemed to ruin the image, but not so with the t20.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Hi all,
just unpacked my new X100F. After a short while I noticed, that the camera did not leave the AF-C mode (shown in the display and also noticeable by the continuously adapting focus), no matter which mode is selected by the switch on the body side. Even when I switch to "M", AF-C is shown in the display and the "Control Ring" switches "the digital teleconverter" instead of manual focus.

Is there any "option" to disable this switch or is it a defect?

Many thanks,
Martin

I have the ISO dial on A and Command selected in the ISO Dial Setting (A), but when I turn the front command dial it doesnt change the custom ISO settings. (Pg 6 manual)

It worked when I first starting playing with the camera, but now nothing happens.

There is nothing wrong with the dial as when in playback mode it scrolls through images.

I must have a wrong setting somewhere!

EDIT: The word ISO has a picture of the command dial behind it.

There seem to be two main schools of thought on the best sort of bag in which to carry camera gear around. Some of us like the messenger/satchel style while others prefer the rucksack.

I’m pretty catholic on the issue with, perhaps, a tendency towards satchel: I find it easier to rummage around and find the lens or filter I’m looking for without having to actually take the bag off.

On the other hand, there is the question of snappers’ neck! Several professional pals of mine have wound up under the surgeon’s blade after decades of struggling round with a satchel stuffed with a couple of Nikon F4s, a clutch of lenses, tripod and hip flask. All that weight on one side of the torso is not good.

Another consideration in favour of the backpack style is that it is sometimes easier to get around while wearing them – you don’t have to do a crab shuffle when trying to get through a narrow doorway.

Happily, by complete chance, I have come across a hybrid that seems to cross the boundary of the convenience of a satchel with the portability of a backpack.

I live in a bit of north London called Crouch End, in the middle of which is Hornsey Town Hall. There are 75 or so micro business operating from there and one of them is called Wollffepack – named after the CEO and founder David Wollfe.

They design and make an amazing bit of kit. It looks like a conventional ruck but has a sort of rip-cord pull at the front: give it a tug and the pack partly detaches from the rear harness and swings round to the wearer’s front, allowing him/her to access, load or unload kit as they please.

A video is worth a thousand words so take a look at
.


The build quality of the bag is incredible and the thought and creativity invested into the capture is top notch. I haven’t had a chance to test one of these out yet but would love to hear from anyone that has.

Hello everybody!

A friend of mine tried to photograph a solar eclipse with his x100s through a telescope. As a result, the lens got a bit of fogging and the aperture blades got bent and wrinkled. He got it serviced by an unofficial service guy that polished the lens and tried to straighten the blades. The result is in the image attached. The repairs costed 150 euros and my friend offered me the camera for 220 euros. The price is great but I fear the blades could give in at any moment. What's your take on this particular deal?
Regards,
Alin

Just had a 'hands on' with X100F, and the camera is a very solid item. However, one aspect of the design did not impress; the HDMI port cover door did not sit flush to the body and offers little resistance when it is opened. It looked to me like the port cover 'handle' could easily catch in a bag or whatever, open the door, and damage it. A rubberised door that offered more resistance to being opened would have been better. Not sure if it's the same as on the X100T, and can't remember from when I owned the X100S. The HDMI cover on my X70 is much better. Other than that, the X100F is a lovely camera.

Hi All

I hope I posted this in the right place :)

Where can I buy a lens case for my beloved 100-400mm . I've looked on the internet but not much has came to light.
At the moment I'm just keeping it in my camera back pack .
There is a one on Amazon but I think the foot and hood has to be removed when using it which isn't ideal.

Thanks in advance for any help . Cheers

Hi everyone!

Like the title says I'm opening this thread to ask for help.
I've been searching on the web the answer to this question for the past day without luck.
I came across to an error yesterday when I forgot one of the sd cards of my camera. With only one card inserted the camera gives you an error of "1 no sd card" and doesn't let you shoot.
I tried moving the card of slot or formatting it. Turning it off and on. Nothing works.

Does anybody know if it's an error user or a camera limitation?

Thanks

We're having an unusually early Spring (set 5 temp records for February), and all the plants seem to think it's mid March. Went over to the park today and mounted my macro lens on my X-T2 for the first time since I bought the camera.

I thought I knew enough to figure out what I didn't know in LR but I'm stumped on this one...

I have an import file renaming template that uses the camera model + original file number.

I had two x100s's and never could figure out how to use them in the same template, so I made a second template called x100b. The problem was if I ever forgot to switch import templates, I would screw up my naming and introduce duplicate file names.

Do you have any idea how I could handle this other than the kludge I created?

thanks,

tom

I just picked up the X100F that I had ordered. Impressive apparent build quality, of course. Good size and appropriate lens for what I want to use it for. The only problem is that electronically there are so many options and my last significant camera experience was in the film camera age!

I'm looking for a book that will provide guidance as to how to set up the camera and how "best" to use it. I realize that because the "F" is so new, books specifically for it have yet to be published. Any suggestions?

Hey everyone, I recently bought a used x100t which has been working flawlessly until just today. Not sure if I messed up a setting or if the half pressed shutter button just stopped working, but the camera will no longer focus if I half press the shutter button. If I press it all the way down it will focus quickly then snap the shot. It will not allow me to half press to focus, then recompose and snap the shot. Luckily the AEL/AFL button the back will focus and allow me to focus, then recompose so the camera is still very functional. I have tried resetting the shooting menu and set-up reset in the camera menu and still the half pressed shutter wont work. Am I missing something or just unlucky that my used camera failed on me 1 week after acquiring it?

Thanks in advance!

How does the digital teleconverter work exactly? From my understanding, you are taking an image with the 23mm lens and basically the camera crops it so the image you see has the FOV as if it were 35mm or 50mm?
What about the bokeh? I would think that the bokeh of an image digitally teleconverted to 35mm would be different (less bokeh probably?) from the bokeh if you used a TCL lens to 35mm?

I had a chance to check out the new line-up at Samy's in San Francisco yesterday. I'm coming from the perspective of having an X100T and X-T2, and formerly the T10.

X100F
It is a much faster, ergonomically rational, and denser feeling camera. It is what you would expect for anyone with experience in the x-trans iii/x processor pro platform, and if you've used lenses that don't have the super fast internal motors on both the current and previous processor generations, you can interpolate the difference in AF from F to T.

I will be upgrading because I can and I'm a geek, but for those of you X100T users, I don't think it is fundamentally quicker even if some things operate faster. I therefore would not recommend upgrading if you're on the fence unless you specifically like X-Trans III image aesthetics, or have ergo pet peeves that the F solves.

GFX
On one hand, it is as you'd expect, a big Fuji-X camera, although I found it interestingly awkward. The X-T2 like control deck is there, but I had to think for a moment which hand I should use to push the play button without dropping the camera in front of the Fuji rep. Just me, but it feels like a cousin, not part of the immediate family.

I went to check out out the X1D, too. I believe it is nominally lighter, but it feels considerably heavier than the GFX. I found it operated more...deliberately, shall we say...and I could not believe how "PASM" challenged I've become using the X series. The touchscreen was novel but I prefer my dials.

The Hassie reminds me of the old V series because of its density ("leave know doubt, you are in MF territory!"), whereas the GFX reminds me of the X-Pro1 feel after you've used an X-Pro2. It can feel hollow and "plasticky" because it's lighter than it looks.

X-T20
This was the camera I was actually most excited about--much to the opposite of popular opinion if we measure by chatter--and I was not disappointed. The speed of the X-Trans III platform is substantial, and without getting into a forum war, it was the one iteration for me where I felt it was objectively fast. My old X-T10 didn't feel quicker than my N90s.

To have all that new technology in a small package, with touchscreen, decent 4k, processor performance, and the same still output as the flagship is incredible. It feels like it should be neutered, and then it's not.

I will be downgrading from the T2; in truth, I should have just waited, but you all know how the weakness sets in.

And finally...
....after all that, it's still plainly clear to me that the X-Pro2 is Fujifilm's finest camera. Its fit, finish, and thought are just that much more refined. This is said having just walked to Samy's from the Leica store. I'd never handled an M series anything before, and it is apparent why they cost so much dough, both in craftsmanship and luxury. Your mileage will certainly vary...

So what did I walk out with? Of course, one box each of Portra 160 and Neopan Acros 100 in 4x5.

Can anyone tell me if the battery for the XT2 is different than the X100T? I think I should already know it, but before I order, I wanted to ask here for clarification. Also anyone using Wasabi batteries on XT2 with any issues? If the battery is different, can you tell me what the model is and what the Wasabi equivalent would be.
Thanks if you can help!

PS: Any advice about a protective screen for the back LCD?

Fujifilm reps were at Samy's Cameras in San Francisco today, so I had a chance to play and "shoot" with the new GFX.

The GFX is everything that you’d expect a medium format professional camera to be; it's clear its extremely well thought-through and is executed to a very high engineering specification. IMHO, it will really be a "game-changer" for the MF professional market, as well as expert enthusiast photographers with MF experience, who truly understand what working with a MF camera means.

Love the form factor. Very compact. Had some mundane stuff to take care of. Always thought the storage unit had a neat look to it.

So far, so good. I think I'm going to like this lens. X-P2 SOOC JPEG F6.4 ISO1600

Visited our local bay area to test my friends XT2 and my XE2s. Location is frequently visited by local photographers so its all the same scene. All boils down to the cloud formation that day and pure luck. We waited for the the light to change to get the different moods.

Can the focus on this lens be calibrated?

So, really weird issue here. I'm hoping it's not a corrupt memory card, but if it is, that stinks.. But better than a faulty camera, I guess. I'm going to answer my own question now.. I just tried another memory card, and the same issue is occurring. Right now, I've got one card in the X-T2. And, I'm assuming that you only need one card, and not two at any/all times.

I'm shooting RAW only. I've got the "save data set-up" on "sequential" and the SD card is in Slot 1.
When I take the shot, I am able to see the preview right after shooting, and if I press play, the image is there. I can even convert the image to jpg, and then, and ONLY then will any of my apps recognize the file to import. Otherwise, I get a blank looking RAF file, as shown in the screen shots.

It's not the cards. They're fine. I have no idea of what's happening, but this is a new camera and that would be disappointing, to say the least if it was a hardware issue.

I'm hoping it is just a setting that I messed up somewhere along the way?

Thanks!

Doug

I'd like to start a thread where members can post work done with the recently released XF 50mm f2.

I picked up mine today and tried a few shots with it. For me, it's a new FOV similar to using my manual Nikon 50mm lenses and an adapter. I'm excited to explore it and see where it takes me.

These were shot with an XPRO2 using ACROS at f2.

I've noticed that in TTL, my framerate seems to drop to maybe 1.5FPS when using on camera flash. This is with autofocus locked and just holding down the shutter in CL or CH. If I switch to Manual on the flash, I get the normal frame rates and the flash will just try and keep up.

Is there any way around this? Shooting dance floors often means firing off 3-5 shots with heavy movement. It's tough to actually time a shot, especially with the XT-2's slower focus and metering. It's not like a DSLR where there is no delay at all... which might be my own settings.

I am using an i60a BTW.

So it looks like Fuji released a new lens road map today with two new lens on the horizon for 2018. Plus the two x-mount Cine lenses for this year.

The 2018 releases show as an Ultra wide zoom and a Telephoto prime. Nether says exactly what focal length they will be so whats everyones guess?

I could see them doing something like a 10-16mm f2.8 for the ultra wide and maybe a 200mm or 300mm f2.8 prime. Any rumors on what they might actually be?
