I am unable to get the 'drive setting' assigned to a Fn button. I actually assigned it, but it does not function - it does nothing. Neither does Fn2, pre-assigned by Fuji.

I do not have a power booster grip. The camera is set to performance mode.

What am I doing wrong?

Multistitched panorama using the XF90 for wide angle landscape. The file is very large and contains a lot of detail - it's the XF90 so it'd never be any other way!

I'm pleased with how it turned out - the workflow was clunky (must practice more stitched pano's with the XF90...) but those clouds! I just had to capture them and the XF90 was on the camera so why not!

Stitched in Affinity Photo - a great alternative to Adobe. I swear by Capture One, so the two work well hand in hand.

Hope you enjoy the shot as much as I enjoyed those clouds last Saturday!

More shots in flickr (in my signature).

Eek - still uploading - hope there's not an upper limit on filesize on this forum... Yep - it's too big so I'll attach the flickr link and it's downloadable from there...

Prompted in part by some of the lovely images I see here from folks shooting RF lenses and my own experience shooting compact RF cameras in my film days. There probably isn't any way I could swing a Leica or Zeiss lens. I've shot with the Jupiter 8 and a few Industar lenses and they were fine but I wouldn't say I loved any of them although the Jupiter 8 was pretty good (the clickers aperture drove a bit crazy though). I like to get close to my subjects and I know that SLR lenses tend to do a better job with that.

I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for RF lenses I should take a look at? I'd be most interested in 28, 35 and 50mm.

The vertical power grip for the X-T2 is now on sale at Amazon and BHPhoto for $299. I've been putting off buying one, but I've been doing quite a few events in which I shoot portrait mode quite a bit, and also having the extra batteries will be convenient. (Note - I believe one could get it for even less if trying to submit offer on greentoe)

I just bought a Canon 7 rangefinder body (and beat 50mm lens) and am thinking about getting some other lenses spruced up for use on this new to me body. One of the lenses is a Canon Serenar 50f1.9 collapsing lens, but the front element is very scratched and flares wildly when light strikes it. Beautiful images otherwise. I know getting this polished and coated is going to be pricey, and fairly risky, so I went to ebay to see what the current price would be to replace it... There is almost NOTHING for Serenar 50mm lenses on there right now!

I am certainly glad I bought almost an entire set (save the really rare examples) back when I got my Xpro, because prices have gone up, and now supply seems to be down. I didn't check other focal lengths, there are only a couple others that I would want and some of those are very rare (can't afford them).

I sent an email the YYe camera repair to see if he can look at it and maybe polish and re-coat, hoping it won't cost too much. And then I might have a very expensive collectable lens that also functions well.

Just for completion, since a few of you might want to know what I have:

21f4 Voigtlander (black)
28f3.5 Serenar (chrome)
35f3.2 Serenar (chrome)
50f1.8 Serenar (chrome)
50f1.9 Serenar (chrome, collapsing)
85f2 Serenar (chrome)
135f3.5 Serenar (chrome)
135f4 Serenar (chrome)

I think I have a few others, but they are not is the best of shape and stuck away for some day to fix them.

The Canon 25f3.5 is about the only other Serenar that I would want, but very rare and therefor very expensive when it does come up. Maybe the 19f3.5 would be nice as well.

I find that the histogram disappears when I half-press the shutter button. This is unlike other cameras I own. Is there any way to have it continue to display the histogram thru the point of exposure?

Hi!

I finally got a XF100-400 to pair with my T2 a few weeks ago but did have a chance to try it out in a sport context until last weekend at the 16th edition of the annual "Vagues en Ville" Whitewater Festival here in Qu├ębec City.

It is a really nice 2 days event that marks the beginning of the season for the White Water community on a 4 km stretch of R3 rapids of the St-Charles River.

I have been shooting this event every year since 2013, first with a X-E1 paired to the XF60 or XF14mm (yep!) and now with a T2 and the XF100-400, nice evolution Fuji !!! :)

Can X-T2 swap RAW in SD SLOT1 and JPG in SD SLOT2 to JPG in SD SLOT1 and RAW in SD SLOT2 ?

I shoot raw+fine mode and card slot use raw / jpeg.

I have a problem when I use wifi transfer JPG.
The Fuji app cannot see JPG file in SD SLOT2.If SD SLOT1 has no JPG, I cannot transfer picture to mobile.

Thank you for advanced.

I had, and sold, an X100 with WCL for way not enough. I loved and loathed that camera. In the past I have gotten along with small, fixed-lens rangefinder cameras but for some reason the X100 and I had issues.

Owning other Fujifilm cameras and wanting to dip a toe back into the X100 waters (and simplify my wife's camera setup) I shopped for a used S.

Yes, great cosmetic shape, he said. Nice little cam with just minor cosmetic dings, he said. If I ever meet real time someone who thinks major scratches and the use of super glue on a camera they are selling online is great shape, I will -- well, I'll be irritated and make sure I give the stink eye in their general direction.

The camera arrives and it is not pretty. Fortunately I am able to cover up much of the ugly with pretty. The autofocus is, thankfully, not like the original X100. The image quality, live view, and simplicity of one lens are outstanding. Transferring files via a physical direct connection to an iphone with a card reader has worked well and the camera is very quiet once everything is turned off. No slap. No, I am a DSLR hear me roar. Just click, image, next.

Unintended plus: prior owner's bruises means not stressing about babying it, so there is that.

So the size, simplicity, easy macro option, and image quality continue to make this a go-to camera in our cooking class business despite kitchens being a tough place to live for a camera. So far it is a flour and flame survivor and our X100S continues to prove itself as a happy workhorse despite its scars.

firmware for fuji pro2 2.00 to2.10 nat on firmware pages to move to3.oo
Views: 91 / Likes: 0 / Replies: 2
Hi, Folks.

After having issues upgrading the firmware, now I back to another issue, this time the upgrade for the X500 flash.

The firmware ver 3.0 for xpro 2 was installed successfully. I didn't know that the upgrade for the ef-x500 used the same firmware update for the xpro2 so I deleted the files previously used and downloaded a new one for the x500. Went through the same motions of saving, copying to the sd & initiating the upgrade protocol...& boom! My xrpo2 gave me a message that there is no firmware in card slot number 1!

So far, I have tried the following:

1. reformatted the same card used, deleted the downloaded firmware & downloaded a new one, did the same copy and firmware installation procedure;
2. tried 3 different sd cards, reformatted, and initiated the installation procedure;
3. reset my camera, & did 1 & 2;
4. I even tried slot 2;
5. I tried it with my Windows PC to download the firmware.

All the above gave me same results, xpro2 message "no firmware found in card slot 1".

Am I still missing anything?

Thanks, in advance....

Nothing amazing to share - just peeked/listened to the files last night. They are huge, BTW.

Backstory:

My nephew is getting to be quite the alto sax soloist. Got a last minute call about a performance close to home. Good excuse for a bourbon with my brother and to catch the gig.

I thought they were only going to play for about 15 mins as there were a bunch of groups scheduled to play.

With that in mind I left the battery grip and tripod at home and just brought a monopod along with the 50-140 and some batteries.

Turns out they played 3 10 min tunes and some ancillary banter that added up to about 40 mins of recording time. Luckily the longest tune ran slightly under the 10:00 mark so I didn't have to cut anything off.

Worked great. Camera got warm. Used the 126S battery. Had 2 bars left on the meter. Recorded in 4K. Used an external stereo mic Audio Technica AT822 - nice little condenser mic with a good sound.

No hiccups. No drama. Didn't have the absolutely fastest cards - a pair of UHS II 1900x 128mb Delkin cards rated at read 285 write 100 MB/s At about $80 each a bargain compared to the 2000x cards.

I had no real intention of being a videographer when I got the X-T2 but having this capability is a nice bonus.

Hello
I'm a zoom guy from start. When I bought my X-T10 I start looking on some primes. Yesterday I ordered a 35/2 used in mint condition from a store with guarantee for 300 USD. Today was my first try at this focal length. I'm usually use the 16-50 lens. But I want a lens with nice bokeh and a good focal length. So now I need to decide.

I took several pictures today with the 35. It's a very nice lens.
+ Build quality, compact, light, fast and accurate af, sharp, lovely bokeh, weather resistant
- maybe wrong time in my life to buy this.....

I felt that 35 mm can be tricky but for street and allround photography it's good. It leads to more creativity for a photographer. Here are my favorites from today.

I know this is probably a strange request, but...

I have the X-T1 and now the X-T2...

Someone had written about putting the battery in a Tic-tac box.
Well... the size is near perfect, and when you take your battery
out you get a nice fragrance...

But, I ordered some new 126s batteries for the X-T2 and they came in some
little plastic bags, with a fold over tab.

Wondering if anyone might have some spare little bags they got with their
batteries which they are not going to use...

I have 4 of these un-covered batteries... who would like to be clothed ;)

thanks

Hi guys,

First of all i would like to say hi to everybody in this forum, great community ;D

I have a little dilemma to solve. I am switching from canon DSLR to a Fuji x t20. I haven't bought it yet, but i am about to.
The budget I have right now, allows me to get either the camera + kit lens 18-55 or the camera body + the 35mm f/2.
Do you think that the 35mm would be a good all around lens? Or i should buy the 18-55 now and see later for a prime.

I am an amateur photographer and don't have a lot of experience with prime lenses. Do you think that would be a good choice and boost my creativity or i will be missing the zoom and flexibility of the 18-55

Thank you very much

I have taken a few shots with the View Mode set to Eye Sensor + LCD Image Display.

If I take a shot with my eye to the EVF and then lower the camera to look at the LCD the image is displayed on the LCD and 'NEXT' is showing in the lower left corner. The image remains in continuous mode until I tap the shutter button.
This does not occur when I look at the LCD when taking the shot.

The Image Display option is se t to 'OFF".

Is this normal? If it is normal, what is the purpose?

Thanks

I love my X100F, but cannot find a way to display a histogram on either the LCD or in the electronic viewfinder before I capture the image. I can certainly get a histogram displayed in playback mode for any image I have already captured, but for the life of me, cannot get it to display before image capture.

Can anyone be kind enough to let me know if this can be done. It would certainly make shooting, especially in manual, considerably easier.

Thanks

I'm so torn. I was all excited and about to buy the 50-140mm f2.8 and then found out there is a 55-200mm f3.5-4.8.

I recently sold all my canon gear to change over to Fuji. I have an xpro2, 90mm f2 and 35 f1.4 and want something with a little more reach that I can photograph indoor martial arts.
I'm no longer shooting professionally and are now just a hobbiest. I have the funds from all my canon stuff so the price isn't too much of a big deal. The reason I sold my canon stuff was in part the weight and size, I love my Fuji and how small and light it is. This is why I'm stuck on which lens would be better for me. Primarily I'm photographing my kids indoors and outdoors. Or portraits. The 55-200 is lighter and smaller but the 50-140 has the better quality and the 2.8. I shoot wide open pretty much all the time and I really love bokeh and super creamy backgrounds. Which is why I'm leaning towards the 50-140, but I'm concerned about the weight. I'm not going to be able to try one in person as I don't live near any camera shops and will be ordering online.

What are the best brands for SD card? What is the speed needed to get the most out of an XT-1 (and maybe a future XT-2)? Is it UHS-II or Class U3 that makes the differences? It is fairly confusing...

The other day while driving home from the bank I decided to make a detour as the weather had improved and so did the evening light. After taking a bunch of decent photos of some local mule deer and landscapes I happen upon 3 moose far off in the distance! I was glad I had my 100-400mm w/1/4 tele cuz they were trotting along a ditch and fence line and I couldn't get any closer. At first I was unsure if the lead moose was actually a moose or some alien creature (still have my doubts) I've never thought that moose are the most attractive animals created but this poor thing made the other two look like swans! lol

X-T2 18mm f/2 EF-X8

While laying no claims to excellence at all I'm quite happy with this shot for two reasons other than a nice Sunday outing at the newly opened public space adjacent to Wrigley Field called (wait for it....) The Park at Wrigley. It was a spontaneous hip shot using the little EF-X8 to fill the backlit tulips with a degree of success I think and it was processed using Iridient X-Transformer with Lightroom which I think is permanently going into my workflow. This shot did not need the greater capability in processing fine foliage detail but I am liking the results in general. I'm probably going to stick with it.

Love this lens so much. It always seems to take the keepers!

Taken early morning on Saturday in the UK Lake District at a new venue for me - Tewet Tarn with Blencathra in the background. There were hoardes of photographers at Castlerigg stone circle waiting for the sun to rise. This place is far more understated....

Full res image in Flickr (along with others). Not sure what res it comes out at on here... I'll learn how to drive this thing at some point! Processed in capture one. Just levels adjusted really...
