    XF35mmF2 Light Loss

    I was able to reproduce the issue now, does not seem to be stuck blades. If I use it between f2 and f5.6 it works as normal, it opens or closes..... If I go past f8 and then go back to f2, blades open only from f8-f16 (at f2 it opens at the same size as f8, and f16 as f16) It wont go back to fully open the blades until I unmount the lens and mount it again (turn the camera of does not work). Seems to me that unmounting the lens resets or reboots it and then it works again.

    thanks, but its out of warranty, bought it a couple of years ago

    Yeah, if it's already sticking now, that's not a good sign for its longevity. I imagine it's still under warranty? Best to send it in for service if it happens again, or preemptively if you're able to be without it for a week or two.

    XF35mmF2 Light Loss

    Seems that is the case, at f2 it was stuck somewhere in the middle, after several actuations it fully opened. Now its working ok, but I guess will fail again eventually right?

    XF35mmF2 Light Loss

    @JMA That definitely sounds like your lens could be defective, possibly a stuck aperture blade. You should be able to see your aperture blades move, open, and close if you look into the front of the lens and click through the different apertures with the aperture ring. You may need to half-press the shutter to move the aperture blades, depending on your camera and settings. You should notice right away if something is amiss with the blades.
  8. I'm consistently getting 3 stop darker exposures with my 35mm f2, regardless camera used or aperture setting, vs all my other fuji lenses, all being equal. Other way to see it is that I get ISO 3200 on the 35mm f2 vs ISO 400 to 640 on 7 different fuji lenses, same composition, same lighting, same speed, same aperture, same camera. I understand light transmission could be different from lens to lens, but 3 stops? Is this normal for this lens or its defective? Thanks

  10. Maybe you've solved your problem already? But in case not, this is quite common. The lens designer never imagined a scenario where someone would slide the lens around with a shift adapter! I use a Kipon T/S adapter on my Fuji X-T2 with Olympus OM lenses. Most mount and shift without trouble. But some have a fin or projection that was designed to control flare on an OM series camera. They tend to block shift more than tilt. Sometimes they only block in one direction (so you can shift left but not right). In rare cases they may get in the way of tilts too. If you need the full range of motion, you may have to modify the lens (in other words, file or chop off a bit of the projecting fin, or remove the baffle part from the mount if that's possible).

    X-H1

    Hi Ragamuffin, Sorry for my delay in replying; I haven't stopped by here for a week or so. I think the key way to think about the X-H1 is based on the needs of the user, and that is in fact, how Fujfilm approached its design and engineering. With respect to the terms "significant departure", it all depends on what one means by significant departure. I would posit that, on the whole, the X-H1 is not a significant departure from the X-T2 when it comes to sensor technology, image processing, out-and-out image quality, DR, noise performance, etc. It is a significant departure with respect to lens stabilizaton, video, and most importantly for me, robustness and ruggedness of construction. How important those things are, though, really depends on the needs of the end-user. As I mentioned previously, I think the main point of this camera has been missed by many reviewers, both review sites and video "YouTube"-types. In my personal view, this camera was designed to be able to mount and (stably) use long, fast, heavy prime telephones and professional level zoom or prime cine lenses for professional photojournalism and videography/cinematography applications or use-cases. The IBIS subsystem supports those applications and use-cases by adding stabilization when using these larger, faster, and heavier lenses. I'm still of the view that the X-H1 is a Canon 1D-series of body, and most folks do not need this level of engineering specification. But those that do, the kind of guys I predominantly shoot with, do.

    update XT-2 firmware to 3.0 problems

    @Franky2step - were you successful in trying the XRAW Studio?

    XT10 playback button faulty

    I've not heard of that problem before.

    If it's dark then other than infrared filter on lens and infrared lighting, I think you're out of luck.

    Your photo is sharp - I have added a little more sharpness with the high pass filter in Photoshop to sharpen the edges of the water droplets. The aperture chosen (f6.4) and the point of focus (about middle of the street) gives a too narrow depth of field so the nearest subject is not sharply focused. At f8/f11 and focused on the post to the right would give sharpness throughout. You could try a square crop like this:

    Sorry ton insist but I posted a picture as you asked me. I was thinking: maybe i do no export the jpeg with good settings in lightroom ? What are the best settings to export a photo for printing ? Thank you !
  20. I have had my XT10 since Jan2017 and recently the playback button has stopped working. The small arrow icon has rotated too. It is still under the retailers warranty so it will be going back. Wondered if this was a known problem or an isolated incident? Anthony

    Ok my wife loves bats (go figure) any way I’ve booked her in at Chester zoo to get up close and personal and feed the bats in there bat house. I’d like to video it using my xt2 but I’ve never used the video function yet, the bat house is nearly pitch black, has anyone got any advise on how I should set the xt2 up to be able to film her and the bats. Cheers

    update XT-2 firmware to 3.0 problems

    Also, do not expect Lightroom/Photoshop capabilities out of the X RAW Converter.

  24. Report post Posted 1 minute ago I drink Vodka! I can't send either over the border, Trump's northern wall is in the way...lol

    update XT-2 firmware to 3.0 problems

    I drink Vodka! With the XT2 still attached and after you have found your photo folder, you can choose you film simulation…etc and save it as your custom profile. You can apply the custom profile to the photos of your choosing.
