  1. It almost feels like spring with the warm light on the attractive facade. I often wish I had a similar setup for myself but my XE1 is converted for infrared so the XT1 is my smallest body. I got the little XE1 after my XP1 and XT1 and it was only then that I discovered how pleasant it is to carry and to use and although I have a 18-55 zoom, I think I'd buy the 16-50mm XC to pair it with too.
  2. XT1 also but you need LR CC to install and run it. https://creative.adobe.com/addons/products/12039#.WITqx1z2OfE
  3. XT2 yes. Check the Fuji website.
  4. Sounds like you have an ILC X camera rather than X100 which is how this thread was headed. Whenever you ask a question make sure you say what camera lens etc and if it is image related then include an image with full exif too. The advice to check and clean the contacts would probably have been the very first given.
  5. Amazon has little kits of synch cover, hot shoe cover etc for previous X bodies that should fit.
  6. New Beta 2 now available. http://www.iridientdigital.com/products/xtransformer_download.html
  7. The XT20 has the preset AF modes but not custom AF mode. I'm still trying to check the buffer rate myself. The lack of joystick in exchange for touch screen is not a plus for me and there's no two-way tilt. I don't think the small viewfinder will suit me either so it looks like I'll have to continue waiting for a used XT2.
  8. A good series of images John and this is my favourite. You did a very nice job of bringing out detail whilst retaining the light and shadow and capturing a relaxed moment.
  9. Thanks very much for commenting Marco. Yes, I agree the oof dog is unfortunate. I could have closed the aperture one stop which may have been enough to sharpen it although I like to keep the SS up with this lens. I used the wide aperture to accentuate the density of the fog with a shallow DoF. The local paper chose to use the two pictures which impressed you least. The editor preferring those shots because the density of the fog felt greater with figures disappearing into it rather than appearing from it. However, my reasons for taking them that way was more from a desire to avoid recognition of the camera and subsequent loss of the candid nature of the shots as happened in the first picture of the girls walking towards me.
  10. LR 5.7 won't process XT1 files but Adobe offer a discounted upgrade to LR6.7 - just check at the final payment - page next to the total is the only place you'll see the option to upgrade rather than buy. However, I'm pretty sure Affinity is standalone and focus stacking is pretty much automated in modern editors. In any case you can try before you buy the Mac version https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/signup/trial/designer/ If you do get it. please let us know what you think after a fair trial. Vic

    Not much of fog these days so when we got some I managed to get out before it weakened.
