  1. To Artuk. Yes I can certainly see that these were NOT taken on a Fuji Camera. You said that they were taken on a Sony A711 camera and that is where the difference lies!. What I merely said that these were superior and it shows. The A711 is a Full Frame, and the Fujis are a cropped sensor( Are'nt they?) Take compliments in the spirit they were given, not a post mortem. Thanks!
  2. A Morepork or German Owl?
  3. Hi artuk. Really like your selection of photos. You can see they were not taken on a Fujifilm camera. I like the rendering of these photos very much. It's got me thinking! They are really really good. Thanks.
  4. You would think after producing 4 models of this camera that it should be near perfect. Wouldn't you think so?
  5. Really like the lighting in this shot. Like robthebruce here in New Zealand we do not get that soft lighting as the atmosphere is very clear. First thing that I notice when watching any programmes on TV on the UK is that soft lighting.
  6. Found this bloke under some wood. Raced and set my camera up. Got back and was still there and grabbed a few shots of him/her. While I was taking the shots of him it's eyes were following me around the whole time. Probaly the biggest spider I have come across. May have come in from Aussie.
  7. Great photo! Fantastic lighting. Enjoy your photography Ross.
  8. Yes it is. I think it was a juvenile house fly.Quite small, but photographed pretty good. That insect world is another realm, especially when you get down to their level. Thanks! veejaycee
  9. Captured with my Fuji XE2 camera fitted with Nikon 105mm F2.8D Micro Lens.
  10. Great photo and lighting. Inside job?
  11. Great photos Richard. Like the Black and White, plus the fact you used an old Russian Lens. Have been looking at the Soviet lenses and in fact ordered a Helios 44-2 from the UK, so should be here this week. Anyone in the forum using old Russian or East German lenses, lets know, would be interested to hear your comments regarding makes etc. When are comming down under Richard?
  12. A really nice photo Rob. I like the colours. Birds can be difficult to get a good photo of, as they seem to move around a lot. There's a few on this side of the Tasman too, the result of caged birds getting out into the wild. They are causing a bit of a problem around Auckland so I have heard.
  13. G'day Heather. The adapter I used with this combination was a Fotodiox brand adapter. I purchased it from Amazon and was well priced US$15-$20. I know you can pay a lot more,but this works well. Thanks for your inquiry.
  14. How did you get on with this problem. My XE2 done much the same. I bought it new. It had Version 1.0. I upgraded it to the latest firmware, worked fine for about an hour, then could'nt turn off, had to take the battery out. Put the battery back in but would not turn on properly. No image on the LCD but the information was there, so was partly working. Tried everything but to no avail. Sent it to Fuji New Zealand then had a phone call from Fuji to say there was no problem. Told them to hold it for a few days so they they could check it now and again. The only explaination they could come up with it may have been a corrupted card. Got it back and I works as it should. Thank goodness!
  15. I don't think I would like it myself, but certainly do admire it. Good on the blokes that do it. Saw a set of photos a while ago, (You Tube I think.) Street photos in a city or town, low light and wet streets with just the odd figure in the distance and done in black and white. Gee they were nice!
