  1. Today
  2. I enjoyed reading about your progression with the X series Rob. Mine was similar. I started with an XPro1 (which I still have), moved on to an XT1and eventually to an XT2 which I find to be exactly right for my needs, performs brilliantly and handles so well even with a heavy lens attached. Like you somewhere along the way I fell for an X100 (a T). Which now goes just about everywhere with me. For a lengthy trip to Malta a couple of years ago I took the XT2 and the X100T. Dont remember which lenses. Attached image I see was with the 60mm. I probably had the 16-55 and the 50-140 too. The kit was light enough and compact enough to fit in hand luggage and did everything I wanted in Malta.
  3. Yesterday
  4. I don't think the camera will recognise earlier FW. Also, you'd need to find someone who still had a copy on their computer because only the latest are kept on the Fuji websites.

  7. I have always used my X100F with the OVF and 0.5 second image previews that pop up on the EVF after I take a picture. For some reason, this just... stopped happening. Works fine if I use the EVF or LCD. Figured it out just as I posted this... it seems like it was because continuous 5FPS shooting was on. Leaving this here for other people.

    My Apologies Sir! I could've sworn I put it in the title. I just added it. Thanks for the heads up. George
  9. Recently I purchased the X-T2. For about a year I wondered about purchasing the X100F. Eventually I felt it was a head verses heart decision: my head said buy the T2; my heart said buy the X100F. I have very fond memories of my first Fujifilm camera - the innovative, quirky and frustrating x100. The X100 was so simple - yet offered so much in the one camera. With a few software updates it was really practical. But . . . it didn't offer the ability to change the lens. I missed the telephoto and a super wide angle which I had enjoyed using a film camera. Due to the limitations of the x100, I then bought the X-E1 with the 18-55 lens. It was going cheap because the X-E2 was coming onto the market and it provided a small body with a similar rangefinder viewer. All good. I quickly bought the 14 mm and it didn't disappoint me. After about a year, I gave the x100 to my daughter who lived interstate. She was very happy to receive it. It looked 'cool'. Her friends were envious, especially the art student men she rubbed shoulders with at uni. And it was used extensively to record her art development for her assignments. Toward the end of her undergraduate university degree, she took it to Indonesia several times. The most recent trip was for whole of 2017 to the outback of West Timor. The environment was rough roads, village living and no reliable electricity. She took great photos of the locals, the giant Komodo dragons and the landscape. It is still working fine. There is even, perhaps to the surprise of many on this forum, no dust in the viewfinder. The picture of the X100 above was taken yesterday before it disappeared into her bag again and went off to a week at the beach house of her boyfriend's family. The decision had to be made. My heart said, "Go the X100F". But the X-T2 beckoned. Common sense said, "Look, you have five great lenses: you need a body to use them on." True. I needed a better viewfinder than what the X-E1 offered, especially on a bright day, with a quicker refresh rate. I am a left eye shooter, and I was getting tired of the squint from my left eye and the mess left on the screen from my nose. The T2 solved all these problems. Its viewfinder is fabulous. I needed a better sensor and I wanted the Across and Chrome etc simulations which the X-E1 lacked. The T2 had them. However, the new camera had to be bigger than the X-T20, especially when the 2.2 pound/1 kg, 50-140 f2.8 zoom was attached, or even the 23mm f1.4. The T2 solved this balance and handling issue too. But I still miss the simplicity, the freedom that limitation ensures when you work with a X100. Every camera is designed with a particular need in mind which it will service. The T2 is, as one reviewer put it, ". . . like a Swiss Army knife or a 'jack-of-all-trades' camera." It certainly is. I know I must read the manual or buy Rico Pfirstinger's book of tips on how to use it. But I still miss the X100 series, the romance of just having that camera available to snap away or stop and frame a serious picture, knowing it is equipped to perform and will get it, I am going on a trip overseas for about 5 - 6 weeks in three months time which will require me to keep everything light and simple. There will be plenty of walking around old European cities, galleries and so on. It might then be the time to buy a used X100F to take with me.
  10. Memory Card Size

    Why on earth do you need to take between 1000-3000 images at a wedding, how many duffs do you take?
  11. FS: VG condition X100 only $275

    Hi George, It appears you have forgotten to give us a price for it.
  12. Hi, Any Idea how to revert to previous firmware on an XT-2 eg. 3.0 to 2.12 ? Regards
  13. Hi everyone, It's been a while. I received the camera from Fuji this summer. I did test the camera again but was a bit tired of testing it that the camera stayed in a drawer for the summer until a new firmware version came out this autumn (v 2.11). And worst firmware 3.0 (more about that at the end of this post). So my test results. But first a few words about Fuji Canada. This is the message I got from them: "We've only received an SD card with your X-T2 repair xxxx which our technician finds the X-T2 to be functioning normally. After inspecting your XF55-200mm lens, our technician also finds that it too is functioning normally. At this time we will not be contacting Fujifilm Japan since both units are functioning correctly. Your unit will be return to you today." Respectfully, xxx So it was functionning within specifications. I tried without luck to ask them to contact Fuji Japan because maybe something was wrong either with firmware or their specifications. So my tests: I redid the test with two xt-2 bodies (firmware 2.1) with the exact same results as before with parameters described previously (first entry in this post) and the same target. It performed better in outdoor condition with a negligible tendency to move the focus point backward so results were acceptable in full sunlight. Tests recently made with firmware 3.0 are non conclusive since the autofocus selector was moved from S to C probably causing the focus to chase constantly with most of my pictures at wrong focus. So I'll restest this weekend. Regards,
  14. Hi all. My original plan was to own two X100 cameras to keep at separate addresses. After buying two, I started getting hooked on Fuji and bought an X-T1 kit. So one X100 is for sale. It is in 100% working order. It does have many very light signs of use but no dents or dings. I spoke at length with the original owner, it was never dropped or abused. A couple of light marks on the LCD, certainly nothing severe, and the marks disappear as soon as the camera is switched on. Comes with battery, international charger, CD, original case and box. $275 +$12 shipping to U.S. addresses. Would like to keep it a USA sale and payment through PayPal.
  15. Last week
  16. Hi all, I had the x70 and one of my favorite features was the digital teleconverter. I know the x100f has it but I was curious to know if the x100t has it? Thanks! .dan.
  17. x100 cleaning

    If you can't reach it to clean yourself and it is not too much of a problem then leave it. It will cost almost as much as buying another X100 to have it cleaned. It will not affect your pictures.
  18. Dear fellow photogs, I have been (hardly) using an original Fuji x100 and I recently noticed some (minimal) dust in viewfinder, after nearly 5 years of use. Is there some general cleaning that I can perform on it? Can I send it in to Fuji to get it cleaned? Any other pointers on cleaning this camera in general? I'm sure this has been discussed in other forum topics, but I can't seem to find one related to cameras (I saw sensor cleaning etc). Thanks !
  19. I'm using the Nissin i60a with my X-T2. I'm wondering how metering modes, and focus point affect the flash metering. If I understand correctly, the Nissin uses a preflash to determine the correct amount of flash (ETTL). But does it use the metering mode (Spot, Average, Center Weighted) that the X-T2 is set to and the focus point that the camera is set to (single or multi). Any explanation or pointers to resources on this greatly appreciated.

    Take the 16 and the 35, or just the 18-55, and have a great time!

  22. X-Pro2 viewfinder blob

    Hi John, I'm new here for this very thing. My brand new, boxfresh X-Pro2 has exactly the same issue. Did you ever get to an outcome/solution?
  23. What bags or camera bags are you using ?

    I have just bee through this excessive. I wanted something smart that would accomodate what I would need in a days shoot, not all my kit at once. I wanted a smart leather case and I wanted to keep it as small and light so that I woudl use it. I know habing owned a Contax 645 that if a camera is too heavy it stays at home. So first up The Breaus bag I really like this bag but I wonder if it is too big. It is a lot of money to spend and find it is not what you want. I think that the quality is amazing and there are a range of finishes. See here:- http://www.angelo-pelle.com/breus-bag.html Then the next bag I found was The Richmond This is a lovely bag but I am looking to carry a X-Pro 2 with one lens attached + 2 more and I am not sure if they will fit, they probably will but I have decided to pass, but there are a lot more poto's here. https://www.montgobags.com/product/richmond-leather-dslr-camera-bag/ Then I found this "Womens" bag, I have no idea why they call it that but it is a nice bag for one camera and a lens, I thought maybe I could get this for touristing and get the Breus for serious photography more photo's here https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/197460307/travel-set-the-weekender-brandy-leather?ref=related-1 Howeve I then found The Carva 10 With fuji Cameras see here:- http://findingrange.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Cravar-Rana-10-Camera-Bag-Review-Fuji-X-Series-795x530.jpg I love this bag, and so this is the bag I have ordered. The fully body shot gives a really good idea of the size and I thnk it is the right compromise between carring too much and enough. They have a large range of camera bags but all seem to be on a long lead time. Link:- https://www.cravar.com/collections/bags-rana I am not connected with any of these companies I just think that smart cameras need smart bags.
  24. Bermuda trip lens recommendations...

    Thanks much veejaycee - I think the 18-55 and 55-200 are a given, I just love the 35mm f2 (and could see me using that a lot instead of the 18-55 (for example)). Probably best would be your suggestions - although I guess I might swap out the 12mm f2 for the 35mm f2 - it's overlap w/ the 18-55, but I think it will have uses too. Appreciate the feedback! Regards, Alan
  25. Bermuda trip lens recommendations...

    Just the same, I think your 16mm f1.4 is the answer to your needs and if not, then the 12mm Samyang. Whatever the 16mm can't handle, the OIS and wide end of the 18-55mm will. The 35mm is really too long for interiors. My personal choice from your gear list for the whole holiday would be 12mm f2, 16mm f1.4, 18-55mm OIS, 55-200mm OIS. Not much you can;t handle with that kit and you won't spend much time swapping lenses - or sweating too much! Have a great time both of you.
