    A dumb question.......

    That's what I was thinking, but I wanted to be sure. Thanks!
  7. No. Just use the images in Adobe products as usual. You do need to process the Xtrans RAW files a bit differently to get the best out of them, particularly with regards to sharpening. Google Xtrans raw processing. The jpegs will be fine.
  8. ......at least it seems dumb, but I gotta figure it is worth asking before I do something even dumber. I recently picked up a used X-100s - It did not come with the Fuji CD. Now, according to the manual (which I do have) I should not connect the camera directly to my computer to download photos before I load in the CD. I have PS and LR. I have loaded photos from the SD card with no problem. Do I really need the CD?
  9. I visited the corresponding webpage from the link above and I really like the work you have done, both pictures and texts. All the images are carefully composed, nicely exposed, and tastefully post-processed. You were able to convincingly conveying a feeling of classic/vintage photography in capturing the beautiful capital of Uttar Pradesh. Thank you for sharing.
  10. This XT2 FW updates from both the 4.0 and 4.1 - and previous of course. XT2 http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/firmware/x/xt2/index.html X-H1 http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/firmware/x/xh1/index.html

    First images from X-T20

    Thanks! Yeah, I've been using the peak focus assist almost since I took the camera out of the box. I mostly use manual focus so big help to me. My learning curve continues, though. I just figured out how to shoot RAW and apply the film sims after the fact (and other attributes, of course).

    You're always using a film sim even it's STD as mine is but raw discards it. Front switch to M and use back button focus (AFL). Set the colour and type of highlight in AF-MF setting, page 2 MF assist - peak. Once you've set up that you can use the rear control wheel (press - also press and turn) to cycle through - standard vf, magnified VF, split image and peaking.

    Thanks for the tip. How is this done? I looked all through the manual and couldn't find it. Oh, n/m, it is works when you're using a film sim.

  18. It appears the T and F are the same but the S uses the same protector as the original X100. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Expert-Shield-Lifetime-Guarantee-Protector/dp/B00CWF63S4?th=1
  19. I went looking for a GSS Glass screen Protector for my x-100s; found lots for the 100F and 100T, but none specifically for the S. Anybody know it the screen sizes are the same on the S? Thanks!
  20. Currently have 7 camera bags of various types and sizes starting at a small 1ltr up to a twin DSLR system backpack and the same number of climbing, walking, camping rucksacs built up over the last 30 years - all are from the same maker - Lowepro. Not glamorous, in fact quite ordinary looking but the most practical system ever imo. Many accessories fit all the bags including the dividers.

    While walking through Portevedra in Spain on our way to Santiago de Compostela I had a second to capture this before they moved off as we approached.

  22. Proud to say I'm so old school it's not funny. When I closed the business and liquidated all my gear, I couldn't bear to part with a then - 20 year old Domke F2. Now it's an almost 35 - year old Domke F2 and it's working fine for carrying my XT-1 with battery grip, an XE-1, a 14, an 18-55, a 50-230, flash, battery charger, and miscellaneous cards, filters, Kodak lens cleaning wipes from back in the day, and God knows what else in a couple of those pockets. The F2 gets the stuff where I'm going and a Domke vest carries the cameras, lenses and flash whilst hiking or walking about. Even with the Fuji stuff being sooo much lighter and smaller than F3s with motordrives and a half dozen prime lenses from 20 to 300, I'm still not a huge fan of carrying everything on one side of my body.

    Glad you're liking it. If you shoot raw and jpg, choose a BW sim and red focus peaking for MF. It shows up better.

    First images from X-T20

    I took delivery of my X-T20 yesterday and by evening had it figured out enough to get a couple of images. These are just a couple I got out stepping out on the front porch in the quickly-fading evening light. I can see how film shooters like me enjoy this camera. Shooting with a Canon FD 50mm f/1.8, I navigated through the menus enough to be able to accomplish attaching a non-Fuji lens in my short time with it. The thing I'm most excited about right now? The focus peaking option, which the online reviewers haven't emphasized very much. Not from what I've seen, anyway. I can well imagine using that feature when I'm shooting portraits with a manual focus lens. Anyway, I'll be shooting a lot more interesting subjects, of course, but I'm excited about what I'll be able to do. This camera just seems like it's adaptable to a lot of different shooting styles.

    18-55 2.8/4 Lens Creep

    I haven't noticed this with my 18-55. if did I don't really think I would be very concerned about it.

    18-55 2.8/4 Lens Creep

    I don't use protective filters but even so it should not cause the problem unless unusually heavy - remove the filter and see what happens. Maybe the lens is well used and has been carried with the lens pointing down often or perhaps in the habit of pushing the front of the lens to shorten it to carrying size - I've seen that done. It is a light lens and on the XE2 it should balance almost level hanging from a strap connected to the side lugs (not Peak design from the base). Having said that, how often are you going to be using for long exposures pointing at the sky - stars? Or pointing down? I don't know if there is a permanent cure for it that won't cost money.
  28. Check your shutter speed. I use aperture priority but occasionally I bump the shutter dial from automatic to 8000 second. It looks good in the view finder until I play it back. Yes I push the button down to lock it in automatic but when I'm pulling the camera from my bag I will reach in and in the process touch the button releasing it. Then a day later, I'll bump it from automatic shutter to 8000 of a second.
