  1. This is essentially an old topic since it dates back to the X-Pro1, but since the X-Pro2 is out, I think it's still a relevant question and potential problem. As X-Pro1 owners already know the cap/cover for the most under-utilized feature on the camera would be that pc sync terminal is unique in that it is push in type and the the typical screw in one.. so, it's damn easy to lose.. just lost mine the other day. Sadly, there never seem to have been any replacement part offered by Fuji... after all this time.. and from what I can see, the X-Pro2 has the same stupid sync terminal that takes a unique push in type cap/cover. Now, I have the X-Pro2 on order and I anticipate this cap/cover to still be an issue.. I wouldn't' be so concerned, but the X-Pro2 is now weather sealed and if you lose the sync terminal cap/cover, and there is no replacement part offered by Fujifilm, then the X-Pro2's weather sealing is permanently compromised?.. Does this make sense to any of you guys/gals? I've sent my concern to Fujifilm via an email.. good luck waiting for a proper response, huh? Still, don't you think this is a major oversight and needs to be addressed?.. Really sucks if an opening and potential breach in weather sealing on such a expensive and high end camera has no quick and easy fix such as offering a replacement cap.. that's all it takes, but some reason Fujifilm doesn't seem to think it's important enough to address and offer.. what do you have to do?.. send in the camera just to get a replacement cap?.. buy another X-Pro just for spare parts just for this one little cap? I believe I've done my homework to see if I could find a replacement cap, but no luck. Anybody know of a suitable replacement cap?
  2. As most of us already know, the Fuji image files look awesome. To be fair, image files from any camera these days will look really good, but there's something really special about the way the Fujifilm X Series cameras portray color and tone. While the Fuji image processors play a part in this, much of the Fuji mojo is due to the X-Trans sensor. With its proprietary non-Bayer pattern design, the X-Trans sensor reproduces color in a unique way that's different from the way it's done in just about every other digital camera. In my search to figure out what's really going on here, it occurred to me, (and was verified by a few of the Fuji reps and engineers), that the X-Trans sensor is actually very "film-like." It's much more so than most other sensors, and this is no accident. In designing the X-Trans sensor, the Fuji engineers looked back as much as they looked forward. Trying to preserve the heritage and legacy of traditional photography, they designed the "random" array on the X-Tran sensor so that it resembles the randomness of film. As we know, film was essentially silver halide glitter that was poured into a bowl of jelly and smeared onto a plastic base. There was nothing "regular" about the way grain looked in film, and although the X-Trans sensor isn't totally random, it does closely match the look of actual film grain, especially when it comes to the distribution of the green sensitive pixels. Compare that with an actually cross section of Autochrome Lumiere film from the early 1900s. It's amazing how close the pattern looks to the X-Trans sensor pattern. Also, compare the two image below, one is a scan from a Velvia slide, and the other is JPEG file from the X-T2. You can see an expanded version of this topic on my blog, along with more image examples. I've even got a side by side comparison of the grain in ACROS next to the old T-MAX 3200 film. I'm fascinated by this idea, let me know your thoughts! Below: An enlargement of the grain on an original Fujifilm Velvia slide film image. Below: An enlargement of an X-T2 JPEG file.

  4. Also a few form XT2 and X70 but mainly two XP2s. All 4000 + frames from a Documentary style wedding shoot in a video lasting a just few minutes. By Kevin Mullins http://f16.click/wedding-photography/every-frame-wedding-x-pro2.html
  5. Forget the advantages of the XT2 new AF modes and see what the X-Pro2 can offer using the OVF as a red dot sight. This was published before the launch if the XT2. http://www.mirrorlessons.com/2016/03/30/fuji-x-pro2-ovf-birds-in-flight/

    I love when sun and mist combine together, makes for some nice atmospheric photos!
  7. Hi all. I've just noticed a blob in my EVF view, it's most distracting. (X-Pro2) I cleaned both the eyepiece, and the rectangular viewer, and changed lenses. It seems I have a large piece of black dust in my EVF, I say this, because I can't see it in the OVF. Also, if I use the diopter adjustment, I can bring this blob into focus, it is black, and bean shaped, with sharply defined edges. Any suggestions how I can get this distracting object out of there? Cheers all, John Williams :-)

  9. https://capitalfaces.com/2016/11/05/super-wide-street-shooting-w-samyang-rokinon-12mm-f2/ If you're interested in going super wide for street, this lens is actually pretty good. (Art UK, there's not much for you to slag off in this write up (other than finding street photography offensive, and we know that already), but as ever, I'm all ears)
  10. A little long-winded between photo bits but there is useful info there too. The various articles give a working photographer's view of his tools along with some excellent pictures. http://philippowell.uk/
  11. Hi folks, It's late here, but I've just been messing around in settings, taking some bracketed shots just to try some software. All of of a sudden my X-Pro 2 is not telling me my aperture, even though it's set to aperture prioritity. I've just tried it with the XF 14, XF 23, XF 35 and the 56mm. No one of them a re responding to the camera body, I can't even do manual focus, this looks bad. Or I have I done something stupid? Hopefully I have. I have to sleep now, but I'm supposed to be doing a shoot tomorrow! If you can think of any thing, please let me know. This is really bad time for this to happen, hopefully I've overlooked something. I don't have time for a return right now.
  12. Hey Everyone, This summer I spent 15 days in Japan. I took a X-Pro2 , X-T1 with the Xf23mm, Xf 18-55 & XC 50-230. I had purchased the X-Pro 2 for this trip, I used it for the first few days and didn't end up liking it. So I used my X-T1 for the remainder of the trip and Loved it!! Here is my photographic journey through this beautiful country. Enjoy! Japan 2016 - Gallery

    This is a hand held, low light jpg, which I've processed in Lightzone, a new discovery. Open Source Lightroom clone, originally Mac only, now Windows, and Linux. This looks a bit overcooked, but the review I read suggested that it was a very useful programme, and that it's RAW conversion was as good as Iridient Developer, and it's free. The real test will be on a RAW file, I'll shoot some and try it. :-)
  14. I know very well that this can (re-)trigger some heated discussions - I know @pominpocket will agree, but I just want to share a couple of images I recently spotted. "Brassing" or "faked aging" (link to article on this transformation art) is not everyone's cup of tea, but here we go. The recent Lenny Kravitz Edition of the Leica M-P 240 (link) has stirred up quite some debates on this hipster phenomena - quite understandable as there is nothing real about it and it seems odd that this fake worn-out look adds anything. For sure my wrinkles (and they are real by now) and the corrosion on my car does not increase market value in any way. My worn-out Levi's might be a different story... Anyway, this dude (on a competing forum) accidentally scratched his new X70 and then decided to go full monty with a bit of sanding paper: There are some brilliant remarks in the discussion pointing out that using the Fujifilm film simulation (or indeed any post-processing) is also "fake" and even the styling itself of Fujifilm X series cameras is borderline faking. In the thread, some images of a bruised X-Pro 2 also appear: Not sure who did the above, but Fujifilm did their own version and in a recent article on the design work (with many interesting mock-ups displayed) and production facilities (link), one images show an X-Pro 2 having undergone some simulated aging process for testing. And this is serious business; Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) techniques are important in uncovering many of the weak links of a new product and test the durability of a product . Normally products that have undergone such testing are been scrapped, but I would say in this case, this X-Pro 2 looks quite good and has at least the same amount of character added as any "Lenny Kravitz Edition" - could be just as relevant a releasing a silver version... Could be interesting to see what the simulated aging has done to the LCD - hope it had some Gorilla glass fitted...
  15. Hello Everyone, I am selling my Fujifilm X-Pro 2. I purchased this camera for my summer vacation trip that I just returned from. I thought that I would like the rangefinder style of this camera but after shooting with it the first few days I ended up leaving it in my camera bag for the remainder of the trip and stuck to the X-T1 as my main shooter. This camera has approximately 300 shutter counts or less and is in like new condition. I would say "Mint" but I somehow managed to get a small nick on the top edge of the camera when one of my lenses came loose in my bag, this is nothing major that doesn't affect performance and everything else is new as expected. The screen has had a JJC LCD Guard Film on it since day 1. I purchased this from a grey market vendor for $1599 I'm asking $1500 for it. It comes with original box with all accessories. I will also include free shipping to the US only. I decided to list it on here before I list it on ebay figuring it could go to one of the many talented photographers on this site. I have a 100% seller rating on ebay.com you can look me up under rivers5757. I would appreciate payment through the send friends/family option on paypal, this will help me save on fees. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask ill be happy to help. -Ismael Rios www.Ishriosphoto.com
  16. Hi all, I'm just wondering if there are any Sydney-siders using an X-Pro2? I'm teetering about getting one but having had very little exposure to the X-Pro line it would be nice to be able to meet up with someone who has used it a bit and to actually get a bit of a look and feel for the system. I used to have a Contax G system and I'm imagining the X-Pro2 will be similar but without actually getting my hands on one it's hard to know. Going to a camera store is next to useless - they're reluctant to even put a battery in a new body... I looked into hiring one but DigiDirect in Sydney has a minimum hire time of 6 months at $145/month and I don't really want to spend close to $900 just to try it out. If anyone knows where I could hire one for a week I'd be all over it. Anyway, if there's any X-Pro2 users in Sydney who'd be willing to meet up somewhere and let me paw their camera for 10 minutes it would be greatly appreciated - I'd be happy to spring for a coffee or snack.
  17. I have an unplanned trip to UK in September so I need to replace my X-T1 and x100s (that are already sold), but X-T2 or x200 may not be available for my trip, so my only option may be the X-Pro2 as I don't want to buy another X-Trans II camera. I prefer X-T Line EVF, handling, and flexibility (tilt screen, rumored 4k video, battery grip, more physical controls, etc) but love the rangefinder style of the X-Pro/X100 lines, and while I like the HVF, I may miss the huge EVF of the T. Also I have big hands and find uncomfortable to hold the X-Pro with heavy lenses like the 23 and 56, so I'm not that sure about getting it, but I need a camera for my trip! Have someone of you used both cameras that can tell me if I'll definitely miss the XT1 benefits...specially EVF/handling? PS: I mainly shoot street, portraits, landscapes, weddings and social events

  19. I am not sure whether there is something I did wrong but I have a problem with the auto is with my x-pro2. I selected auto iso min 200, max 3200 and max ss60. Using a 18-55 lens. When I select manual aperture on the lens the auto iso works perfect when changing teh aperture. But when I select auto aperture on the lens and change the aperture with the front wheel the shutterspeed goes below the 1/60s and the iso stays the same at 200. Does anybody knows what goes wrong?
  20. Shot some birds in Dubai with the new 100-400 lens and X-Pro2 the other day! A blogpost about the experience can be found here: http://bjornmoerman....h-fujifilm.html Happy to answer questions here or on the blog! Follow me on Instagram for more!
  21. C1 version 9.1.1 just released with support for uncompressed X-Pro2 RAW files. Compressed RAW still a work in progress I hope.
  22. I am using a new Fujifilm X-Pro2. All my lens work perfectly with it. However, the focus on my XC 50-230 telephoto is terrible. This is true throughout the full range but is worst at full extension. Even using a tripod and high shutter speed, images are fuzzy. Any suggestions? This would appear to be a lens issue and not a camera issue
  23. Fixes the camera settings reset at switch off problem. http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/firmware/x/xpro2/index.html
  24. Hey, noticed something a little annoying about the X-Pro2 regarding deleting RAW + JPEG Files. I have my dual card slot setup to be RAW/JPEG, meaning RAW gets recorded to Slot 1, JPEG gets recorded to Slot 2. So, when I shoot RAW+JPEG, as I usually do, both RAW & JPEG get recorded corrected and into their respective slots, 1 & 2. Now, when I go to playback the images I have taken and I see something I want to delete, I cannot delete both RAW & JPEG files at the same time?!.. unlike previous cameras where it will delete both files for you. I'm usually set to review slot 1 with RAW file and I delete it.. but, the jpeg remains.. I have to actually switch to slot 2 and locate the same image and delete the jpeg like that. one or two pics, provided they're not buried deep or scattered widely apart amongst a large number of photos you may have take, would still be a pain in the ass to delete both unwanted RAW & JPEG files. Is there a work around this so the camera is intelligent enough to delete both RAW+JPEG files at the same time so I don't have to do double duty to clean up my sd cards? If not, looks like this needs to be addressed for future firmware update ASAP! Thanks in advance.
  25. Hi all! New to the Fuji system so having some teething problems! Like the bracketing feature in the drive menu but for some reason they are no longer an option apart from the AE bkt. It was an option but somethings changed. Not sure what I've done wrong?!? Any help greatly appreciated!
