What the average Englishman does at weekends ......

Recommended Posts

The Rochester Sweeps Festival, Mayday weekend 2017. More than 50 Sweeps, Dead Horse, Green man, Morris and folk dance and song groups perform along the Dickensian High st, Around Rochester Cathedral Green, the Castle green and in Rochester Castle grounds. Retro clothes and steam punk also have a strong following at the festival. At dawn on Mayday on nearby Blueberry hill there is a ceremony to welcome the May where they burn virgins and stuff.

If you live in the SE UK, make your calendar for next year Every year it bigger and better - and it's free! Lots of food and drink (not free) and a fair in the castle grounds.

Very nice.

People in costume in public are not photo-resistant and the 90 is perfect for isolating

individuals..

      Cures the possibility of the freezing-up of XT2 cameras in CH mode.

      Maybe for XP2 and XT20 too. https://www.dailycameranews.com/2017/09/next-fujifilm-x-t2-firmware-might-fix-ch-cl-lock-ups/

      This may apply to other bodies too. The following is a response on another forum where suggestions to fix a freezing XT2 were made to - try different batteries, reset the camera, remove battery grip and swap SD cards. On several forums I've read of problems with Lexar cards and this seems to increase the likelihood of them being the cause of problems and since Lexar are moving out of the memory card business maybe it's a good time to mention this. Not all Lexar will cause problems but enough to be worthwhile warning about. IMO and although several others makes are used successfully, Sandisk Extreme Pro 95MBs Class 10 or UHS II (for video) are the best cards for Fuji and known to have a fast enough write speed. Some high capacity cards are known to be slower than (say) 64gb cards. Apparently the camera does a high speed read of the card prior to writing so - more space there is to read, the longer it takes. Worth thinking about anyway.
      "ok so while i was picking up equipment this weekend I bought a pair of 64g extreme pro cards from sandisk. Turns out you were right, most of my problems with the x-t2 are gone, which completely baffles me. I don't understand how a memory card can affect a camera so much, in speed responsiveness and glitches.
      I hate to say it, but for a year it seems I haven't been using the x-t2 to it's full potential because of these ?%$?%$?%$ lexar cards. Even the iphone app is faster !
      I'll still test a bit more but so far... things are fixed."
