  1. FPC went away for about a year and all was well. Only he knows why the hell he came back. He hasn't even got any x series anymore he sold them all because people kept taking the piss (I wonder why with that attitude). Now he has medium format Fuji's which are nice but not really at all relevant here. He's a dick, best we all ignore him tbh. I actually tried to be understanding once but he bit me on the ass so never again. There isn't a bigger pathological liar on this server at all than you. You are THE most dishonest person I have EVER had the misfortune to encounter. ANYONE who trusts you at all, is an absolute fool. You are pure dishonesty incarnate.
  2. Thats what i really love about fuji, the same amazing sensors in the line of x aps cameras they have. I know they switched about from the early models, but still, its nice to see people like fuji stick with an amazing sensor, like zack was saying somewhere in his article, "if it aint broke, dont fix it". Also, sooooo stoked for a new firmware update!!! Fuji, just like Canon....recycling the same sensor, year after year after year. Right on man. shove it up your ass. Spoken like a true Fujifilm knob slobber. Outstanding. Keep slobbin' the knob.
  3. "Switching sensors just to create a reason to upgrade" This is abject nonsense. Switching sensors is done to improve the quality of the output. Of course, Fujifilm doesn't make sensors anymore, they just buy Sony sensors and change the CFA. A higher quality sensor costs Fujifilm more money to buy, which is most likely the reason why they stick with the nearly 3 year old stagnated sensor.
  4. LOL.....Sure. Fuji's wax is well known since the X-E2. The drooling fan boys have to result to such idiocy as "asians prefer to be turned into wax". That's why Fujifilm uses such sledgehammer amounts of noise reduction. Absolute lunacy. I expect nothing less from the knob slobbing religious fanatics.

  6. SUUUUURE. Let's publish a road map and then MISLEAD people with it. What a joke. This is what passes for logic in the rabid knob slobbing fan boy world. You think Fujifilm couldn't have updated the road map months ago as this new lens was being developed? God damn how do you tie your shoes each day? Must be velcro. I feel like fora for other camera brands must have smarter/better trolls. This is making me feel gear inadequacy. @FinePixCamera, could you put a bit more thought into your next troll or flame? You're representing the Fuji X shooter community here. Wrong again Bozo. I represent no one but myself. But continue to believe otherwise if it brings you peace in this troubled world.
  7. Every hear of the road map? Where is it written in stone that Fuji MUST adhere to their lens road map? I think I missed that section of the document. Fuji and any other company have every right to release or not release products whenever they want with whatever notice that do or do not want to give. As FPC says whenever there is a new product released there are winners and losers. I bet that this week there are a heck of a lot of people in the world wishing they had not purchased a X-T1 in the last month or so as well. The upgraded X-T1 model was not on any road map a month ago. SUUUUURE. Let's publish a road map and then MISLEAD people with it. What a joke. This is what passes for logic in the rabid knob slobbing fan boy world. You think Fujifilm couldn't have updated the road map months ago as this new lens was being developed?

  8. While I have sympathy for @bashar I see no reason for @FinePixCamera to stick his oar in since he doesn't own one. Oh boy does it royally suck to be you. There are always winners and losers when new gear is announced. Would you seriously expect Fuji to put the original 56mm f1.2 on the market along with the caveat "look out folks, we are bringing out an even better one in 6 months time". Every hear of the road map? In your world, what is a road map for?
  9. so i took the plunge and invested in the best Bokeh lens fuji has to offer...6 month later we have the 56 APD...I can't afford to sell the old lens to upgrade, have i known from the beginning i would have waited...I do not want to whine and cry here, but Fuji never mentioned this surprise lens in there roadmap...Oh well, i am lucky to have the classic 56 and she deserves more love. You are not alone. Everyone I know who has the 56mm bought it because they want the best bokeh lens that they can get from Fuji. As you said, this new lens was NOT on the road map. Fuji reamed those who bought the early version of the 56mm lens. Really, they need TWO at this focal length AND aperture?
  10. With the O-ring in place, is it still as easy to fine-tune the exposure via the histogram without removing ones eye from the viewfinder? I do this for just about every shot, and get the most consistent exposures ever in my lifetime. It's great you finally got a crutch to lean on to help overcome your lack of skill. I'm pretty new here and I see you have almost 2.000 posts. Is this the type of shit comment I should expect on this site? People as fragile as you are not suitable for the internet. Have your mother re-engage the filter so your precious soul can be protected. Best not to butt in to that which you do not understand. The person I responded to is one of THE most arrogant twerps you'll find anywhere. He's been run out of THREE photography forums now with his asinine pig ignorance and contemptuous bilge.

Light-metering for proper exposure is a crutch? Finally a new discovery after nearly two centuries. Absolute idiocy. Moronic to the extreme. Do you REALLY think there have been no discoveries for 200 years? Even from you, where I expect nothing but pure abject nonsense, this is almost too much. But hey, it's great that today's technology can help you overcome your almost total lack of skill.

  13. Hard to beat Kodak HC-110. Using Dilution E it costs just pennies to develop a roll of film.
  14. Well, I'm not really sure about most of the previous posts, since I haven't been around long enough to know the personalities. But, as for shooting film: I've been keeping a running diary of sorts. (http://bit.ly/1CkJIF0) The summary of it all is that I think film is worth the effort for me. Not because it's better than digital (it isn't) but primarily because it forces me back into a storytelling mode. There's much to be said for images being physically linked together. Looking at a strip of film, I have a desire for there to be a progression along with the frame numbers.** I had forgotten how important that was to helping me think my way through a shoot. The freedom of digital (nearly unlimited images which I can sort in any order I like) has the negative cost of changing the way I approach visual thinking. For now I'm sticking with Arista 400 because it is very cheap. It looks pretty much like Tri-X (and could be custom Tri-X for all I know). I'm also sticking with HC110 because I don't mind the grain. My goal isn't to make a film image look like a digital image, so I embrace the grain. I may eventually try printing some negatives through the old Beseler, but for now I'm content exploring film as a way to improve my photography in general. However, for anyone who is printing from negatives, I'd enjoy hearing your thoughts on the (rapidly dwindling) choices of paper. I tend not to print anything smaller than 11x14, if that matters. ** Side note: Although I stick mainly to the Leica (manual focusing is not as easy as I remember!) I wanted to shoot some wider shots in Philadelphia's Eraserhood and so I dug up a Canon film camera to mate to my 17-35L. The available Canon was a Rebel G, which seemed fine since all I needed was something with a mount which could hold film. I paid no attention when loading the camera, but that model does something new to me: it pulls the entire roll onto the take up spool, and then feeds it backwards into the film case. I have no idea why Canon did that. Maybe counting frames down was a gimmick back in the day? (I suppose, too, that most people who don't develop their own never look at negative frame numbers anyway--they just select out the prints they like.) Whatever their reason, the effect was disorienting when I looked through the developed negatives and the order was completely backwards. No more Rebel G for me. The way Canon unwinds all the film and then slowly winds it back into the cassette as you shoot is safer. Your exposed film is inside the cassette (most of it) and if you accidentally open up the camera, only a few shots are lost, as opposed to most of them if the film is all outside the cassette. Not a bad idea.
