  1. I have experienced a problem with Lightroom and the XT-2. In the last week I shot 4 to 500 images of the Scotish Six Days International Motorcycle Trial with a combination of my XT-1 and XT-2 . Processing these in lightroom threw up some issues with exposure of images from my XT-2. Some images appeared underexposed with before and after images in the shooting sequence perfect. After a lot of plodding I found that XT-2 images shot with AUTO DR, and DR 200 selected by the XT-2, were needing around +1 stop of exposure during lightroom develop processing. Delving into google revealed this as an issue. https://www.fujixspot.com/threads/lightroom-and-auto-dr-on-x-t2.6463/ It appears Lightroom does not process the Fuji XT-2 Raw files correctly Fortunately I had purchased a copy of Iridient so I reprocessed the Fuji raw images through it to DNG and then DNG into lightroom. Iridient processes the Fuji Raw files perfectly into DNG. Anyone else experienced this.? Apologies I initially posted this in the wrong thread XT-20 and Lightroom not XT2 and Lightroom
  2. Apologies There was an error in the placement of my earlier my post, it should have gone into the XT-2 and Lightroom thread not this one relating to the XT-20. I have moved it into the correct thread

  4. Thanks K1W1. I still have my XT1 and Split image does work reasonably well. With my XT2 I can get a result if I frame a clearly defined vertical. On an indoor shot I used the Door frame. It appears marginally better with power boost activated, which tweaks the viewfinder refresh rate, but would definitely be in the group who wouldnt use it. Hopefully Fuji will address this
  5. Just checked split image focus on my XT2 Ver2 and I cannot get it to work.
  6. Upgraded mine last night. Quite straightforward, no problems have surfaced so far, it does what Fuji says it does.
  7. I too haven't upgraded for exactly the same reason. Any bugs surfaced before I take the plunge ?
  8. Sold XE2 bought XT2 Still deciding what to do with my XT1 Bought Iridient X transformer so now on another learning curve with software and camera
  9. Many thanks Vic, Ill progress selling my XE2 and XT1 and buying an XT-2. Ill download Iridient have a good look at it. I also use Faststone.
  10. Im considering selling my XE-2 and XT-1 and purchasing an XT-2. Im wary, from past problems with lightroom, in getting it to work with new Fuji Cameras. Im using Lightroom version 6.8 . I purchased this copy and do not use Adobe's monthly subscription. Checking the info on version 6.8 it says it accepts the XT-2. Searching the forum I cant find a definitive answer on this. May I ask if anyone on the forum is using Lightroom version 6.8 with an XT-2
  11. Some months ago I wanted to Buy a camera Body from FujiFilm Refurbished and someone very kindly gave me the code that released a small discount on a Body only purchase. I am considering buying a complete camera (X100 series) and wondering if a similar code exists for that form of product. ? Ian
  12. I appreciate your comments about other batteries. It would be nice to get hold of one of these 1800ma units and put it to the test with a resistive load to simulate the camera load and see how it performed re providing the stated power and over how many charge discharge cycles.
  13. There appears to be a higher powered NPW 126 battery pack available from Amazon in the USA. A DOT-01 L-ion pack . Claimed capacity is 1800 mAh, about 50% more than the current battery. So far I cant find one in the UK. and amazon wont ship these to the UK Anyone in the USA tried one of these? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00YNUYPNG/
  14. https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Fujifilm+X100T+Disassembly/55681 Came across this. It may be of interest to those wanting to see the inards of a Fuji Camera.
  15. Have been thinking about a 60mm lens for quite few weeks now. Now my XE2 focus operation is tweaked with the new firmware i opted to buy a good as new s/h lens from a local ( Scottish) dealer with 6 months warranty. Could have bought slightly cheaper on ebay but Ive been stuffed recently so giving it a wide berth. Took your advice franco.! Thanks to Fuji for the upgrade, they really look after their customers, they now have me locked in to Fuji product.
