    • I liked some of the photos and thought they looked very artistic, but I'm curious why such a large format is producing such grain?

    • I have a new X100F and I'm experiencing a behavior that I can't explain. I have my display set up "eye sensor" so that the electronic viewfinder triggers when I put my eye to the viewfinder. So far, so good. But as I look through the viewfinder, the information display shows for about a second, and then it disappears. The standard display continues to show on the LCD screen when I pull the camera away from my eye. 

      Is there some setting that I triggered to make the information display disappear? I did a reset and the standard display returned to the viewfinder and stayed there, but today, after a few days of "normal" behavior, and after playing with some settings, the display started disappearing again.

      My apologies if I'm describing normal behavior of the viewfinder, but something tells me this isn't right. I'd appreciate any insights!


    • Bella,she's a lovely sumatran elephant,she is 24 years old this year.

      Their status till now is critical endangered.The population is around 2400-2800 left in the world.

      By 2008, the elephant was locally extinct in West Sumatra and highly risk being lost from North Sumatra too.

      Welcome @razibus

      Sorry to hear about your trouble. Does this happen when using your camera on a tripod, or handheld as well?

      @huck222 Were you ever able to find a solution?

      Hello @Christopher ! 


      I use it handheld (traveling light). I never had such problems with my fuji X100 (first gen) last year on a 3 months bike trip... I have to wait until mi october to send it back to Fuji.... it is very fustrating


      Thanks for your answers !

    • oh my sounds awful. Sounds like they dont test the gear after assembling it.

      Note that the 18-55 has many bad samples. I returned 2, before i got a sharp one. Now i'm very happy, because it is way sharper than the heavy old canon 24-70. Also note that the 18-55 has quite some field curvature, look it up on photozone.de. If you want the Fuji system, or those features (....) then it might be worth while having the camera serviced - in my case they resolved the focus issues. Cost me months of anger, but hey, also had quite a few terrible experiences with Canon "repairs". I sure hope they improve big time..

    • Very few people understand how difficult it is to photograph a black dog. They often become a 'blob' with no ability to see the details. I have such a dog, so well done. 
    • my go to macro a manual focus, vintage 55mm micro nikkor  - it's got some nice smooth blur
    • Nice image overall. The flower buds in the background and the traversing leaf are a little distracting , but not by much because they are somewhat out of focus and, on the other hand, one can say that they add context to me main flower. I particularly like the rendition of the out of focus background. What lens did you use?
    • Thank you both for your nice welcome to this forum and for your comments re my shot of Lyvden, not too shabby for a kit lens what? So glad I jumped ship and went down the Fuji route. Looking forward to finding my way around the site and getting to know some of you better. All the best, Ian.
    • I know what you mean.  I actually didn't really like the velvia film simulation in camera, and it never seemed much like velvia film.  However, for some pictures, a vibrant saturated colour palette can suit them, and I think this is one - although I might be tempted to reduce the saturation or the vibrance a little just to bring back some "realism" whilst still keeping the nice blue sky and the yellow green of the grass.  It's odd that some people get very snobby about saturated colours, then tell you they like the velvia film simulation etc!  Some photos suit subtlety, others vibrancy... it's your creative decision.
    • Welcome to the community @Bettys Dad!
      It is quite vivid, but I think that is what makes it so stunning. The composition as well, the water provides a leading line right to the old home, which is interesting all on its own, but then it is framed perfectly parallel and centered. Quite nice indeed!
