From what i've now gathered from reading and talking to my peers this is a problem since the beginning and Japan is aware but...


Fuji camera's cant do rear curtain sync with non Fuji flashes?! This is almost a deal breaker for me now. I have had my xt1 since January but just yesterday I took it outside with my yongnuo flashes and using my YN560TX on camera i discovered that even with the rear sync flash enabled it will not fire rear sync! How is this not fixed by software yet?! I'm in absolute disbelief and frustration over this issue. From what i understand the only way to rear sync my flash would be to trigger it slave mode with the fuji pop up flash thing.

Absolutely blown away.

Any X-T1 shooters here know what sort of situation could cause the ISO dial to stop working? My camera is only 5 weeks old. No matter what I try, the LCD and EVF both say ISO 200 regardless of what I spin the ISO setting to. Aperture, shutter speed, and command dials are all behaving as expected. Its just the ISO that doesn't want to respond. 99% of the time I just keep my ISO on Auto and let the camera adjust it as needed. I noticed it was stuck at ISO 200 even when it obviously needed to go higher to brighten the exposure, so I tried manually changing the ISO, but no matter where I position the ISO dial, the camera stays on ISO 200. I've confirmed my ISO Auto Settings in the menu have the Max Sensitivity set to 6400.

Do I have a defective X-T1 after only 5 weeks? Or am I missing something obvious here in the settings that can cause this? By the way, I tend to baby my camera's so there is no way this thing was physically damaged.

Thanks for your time and consideration in helping me solve this ....

Working back through the archive to clear out the excess, I’ve reached the X-S1 photos from a few years ago. I seldom use the X-S1 now, but a lot of the images remind me how good it can be. In the thousands of photos I took with that camera, I never once experienced the infamous blooming “orb” phenomenon. After a couple years’ use, the lens did start to creep slowly if the camera was pointed upward or downward (especially in hot weather), but if you support it by the zoom ring anyway, it’s not much of an issue. I remember this shot... I spotted the frog in an airport drainage ditch as I was walking to a parking lot. Reduced and cropped to better show the frog and surrounding "soup."

I'm the lucky owner of a XT1, XP2 and a couple of lenses.:cool:
So far so good!

Here's my dilemma:
Weather permitting I love to ride my motorbike and would like to take a camera with me, in stead of (what I've been doing so far) shooting with my iPhone.
Obviously, on the bike I don't want to carry 'bulky' stuff and therefore I consider both the XT1 and XP2 as "non options". What I would like to get is a compact camera delivering comparable quality.
I've read through various reviews of different brands, but would love to get some user experience from the good people on this forum before making my decision

I just picked up a used x3o for a family vacation (love it so far) it came with a circular polarizer that I can use in a pinch as an ND (about 1.5 stops) but I'd like to get a 3 stop ND filter but I'm having a hard time finding anything in 40mm? Does anyone know of a filter that would fit. I don't want to go the direction of a large step up ring (ie 40-58) because I think they look ridiculous...a few mm would be acceptable.

I am not sure whether there is something I did wrong but I have a problem with the auto is with my x-pro2.

I selected auto iso min 200, max 3200 and min 1/60ss.

Using a 18-55 lens. When I select manual aperture on the lens the auto iso works perfect when changing teh aperture. But when I select auto aperture on the lens and change the aperture with the front wheel the shutterspeed goes below the 1/60s and the iso stays the same at 200.

Does anybody knows what goes wrong?

Looking on line in the X-PRO2 manual, I find the only way to change ISO is via the ISO dial.
Cannot locate it in menu. Am I missing something?

So i headed to the coast last night hoping for a mindblowing sunset, possible what with the stormy skies in recent days, and i knew the tide was very much out, so i took along my samyang 8mm again, hoping for some lovely textures and light and shadow on the mudflats, but sadly it wasn't quite there, the clouds were amazing but the sun fizzled out by the time it reached the magic hour, the golden hour...


But the trip was not a complete waste of time, before i reached the above location, i stumbled upon these little beauties...

Obviously the light was fading fast when i took these, and completely hidden behind cloud within a minute of arriving there, but i did manage to get three images, and hoping to return very soon, maybe even later this evening but a bit less later =)

The normal FujiFilm Warranty Booklet did not come with my X-E2 camera, will this be an issue if it comes to need repair by Fuji North America? I checked my other X series camera box and that also didn't ship with a Warranty Booklet, in fact, i've only ever seen them inside lens boxes.

My only complaint about the X-T1 + 27mm combo is that the 27mm hunts for focus when I half press the shutter button.
I generally have it set at f8 or f9, use a single center focus point and this happens even in broad daylight.
I've missed quite a handful of photos because I am used to releasing the shutter button between shots...
Very annoying.
Is this behaviour exclusive to the 27mm or is it typical for the Fuji X system?

I have been meaning to do this for a while, I kept the Sigma 180 and Tamron 90mm macro lenses when I sold all my Nikon gear, I had already bought the Metabones to use with the Nikon lenses. The flower is only 1 cm in size and this is full frame (jpg) with a slight crop top and bottom, the 2nd (RAW) is the same settings but taken landscape orientation, I am also shoot RAW + JPEG at the moment just to see the difference.

EXIF: Metabones set at stop 1, ISO 3200 ( I forgot to change it from a night shoot!) 1/350s.

I'm asking the opinion of those who know or have both 56 and 90mm lenses. Having the range of lenses seen in my signature, which one would you buy to complement, the 56 or 90. I can buy them for about the same price, I've owned the 56 before and I don't do portraits except for my kids, but I like a little longer focal then 85mm. Is the 90mm great also for general city and landscape photography?

I have been using my Fujifilm 60mm to shoot macros but it's only 1:2. I want it to magnify more. I just found out that I can add an adapter called raynok to increase the magnification (wasn't sure if the AF still work?). Someone also recommended getting the Tamron 90mm SP which is a 1:1 lens but it's only manual focus (not sure that's true). Has anyone used both setup and advice the difference and which one is better? What's the pros and cons for each? Thanks in advance.

I don't use my 8mm samjyang nearly enough, so i thought i would take it out with me in the fields today, and im quite happy with the images it gave, i even managed to stop the lens down enough to get some motion blur from the wind blowing the yellow flowers. For the price these lenses are pretty good i think.

In early July I am shooting my nieces wedding (my second wedding BTW). Currently I have an X-E1 and find that it cannot focus well on people in low light that are moving and sometimes even when objects are not moving too. The camera is at the latest FW BTW. It would be nice to wait for the X-T2 but I need the camera before the end of June so that I can get used to shooting with it.

So I need to upgrade to a newer Fuji body that focuses well in low light.

Would really like an X-Pro2 but since I wear glasses full time I have read that that many have issues with the built-in viewfinder. I have no dealers in my area that sell Fuji stuff so I really can't see how well the viewfinder works with glasses so I need the opinions of the group here. If you wear glasses full time how big of a deal is the viewfinder?

I could also get a used X-T1 from a reputable dealer that is in 9 condition for $780. Also found a used X-T10 that is in 9 condition for $640. I could buy one of those now and perhaps sell it when the X-t2 comes out if I want to upgrade.

Have not seen many reviews of the X-E2s and if it focuses well in low light but I would be open to getting one of those.

My normal shooting style is a lot of landscape stuff and random street. To get an idea of what I typically shoot take a look at my flicker stream

So if you were in my situation what would you buy? Your opinons are most appreciated!

I just recently sold my 10-24. I have an X100s, so I hardly used it at the long end. I also don't shoot very wide all that much, so it was essentially a really large 10mm prime.

I would like to keep a wide angle option, however.

I'm not interested in the 14mm. It's an excellent lens (sold it when I acquired my 10-24), but I'd like something faster. Nor am I interested in the Zeiss 12mm, for the same reason.

That kind of leaves me with the Samyang 12 and the Fuji 16.

Obviously, the Samyang is going to be much wider. I can work with either focal length, I think, as either should compliment my 35 and 56 well.

One of the things that intrigues me about the 16 is the crazy close focus, though I've seen some impressive things from the Samyang in this regard as well.

Any thoughts on the relative merits of both/either would be appreciated.
