  1. Hello Can anyone tell me how to activate the "My Menu" tab in the main menu screen? The manual states that the tab is available only is options have been assigned to the tab, but how do you assign options if it isn't available in the first place? This is on an XT-2 I just bought. thanks Jack EDIT: Just figured it out, thanks anyway!
  2. Can anyone recommend a good polarizer filter for the X20? Would like something that mounts directly to the lens thread w/o some other contraption or adaptor, if any exist.Not sure what size thread it has even. thanks!
  3. veejaycee I have looked at the White Balance. Should have mentioned that as well. It's usually the first thing I check. thx
  4. Artuk, It may be common to many camera brands, but I've owned Canon and Olympus cameras and don't recall having this issue with how they rendered a true red. As for adjusting the saturation setting, I could try that and tone it down in camera. I will also try the Pro Neg Sim mode. Will post again if I notice any improvements. I was really just wondering if this is common among the Fuji sensors. I read many profesionnal reviews prior to making my investment into Fuji cameras and don't recall this ever coming up. Not a plus in my opinion.
  5. My apologies if my question is addressed somewhere else in this forum. I'm curious to know how others perceive the color rendition of their Fuji cameras. I own the X20 and XE-2 with various zooms. In both cameras, true reds tend to appear slightly "orangish" (for lack of a better word). I've tried tweaking some settings, but I get the same look. This seems to be the only color that doesn't look right to me in camera, most others appear true to life. It also seems to the case regardless of which film simulation mode I select. IWhen I download and view in Lightroom, it's about the same. Any thoughts? Thanks in adance.
  6. How did you get an ND filter on the X10?
  7. Great photo. Can you share details? Camera/lens and settings? any post processing?
  8. Appreciate the comments, I learned a lot! Agree artuk, next time, I'll keep that in mind.
  9. OK, I can understand that the perspective will be different at extreme wide angle, but I really thought that the auto "correction" everyone talks about would fix that elongation problem too. then what correction is applied? what distortion is being fixed? I can't use a photo like that. Using PhotNinja, I can use the Barrel/PinCushion tool to fix this to some degree.
  10. Thank you all for the replies. I also learned that I should notice a difference between RAW and JPEG files as the camera makes some adjustment when converting to JPG from RAW. Not sure if Fuji does this in the XE2 but I am going to experiment with shooting RAW + JPEG with the lens at 10mm to see if there is any built in correction and how effective it is. Thanks again everyone.
  11. Cardiobikeracer Thank you for the reply post and your article link (and great pictures BTW). It really helped me better understand the characteristics of this or any wide angle. By wide open, I meant shooting at the widest angle of 10mm, not at f4. But I do plan on shooting at various apertures to see if that makes any difference. Probably not. Since my original post, I have managed to get PhotNinja to straighten out some of the distortion. While I see how keeping the sensor level to the image might alleviate some of the issue, I don't see how I can do that all the time. I was using the lens to take Thanksgiving dinner pictures of a gathering of over 25 people and that's when I really noticed how the faces people at the edges were really elongated and just not normal.(If I knew how to include or attach a photo here that shows the problem I would. ) I wasn't aware of the internal corrections applied by the camera but have come to appreciate that with the comments I've received on this. Clearly, I still have some learning to do. Thanks again.
  12. Peter thanks for your comment. I don't have Lightroom. I have a demo version of PhotoNinja and an older version of Photoshop Elements (10). I don't know what exactly you mean by the EXIF info taking care of it automatically. None of the programs I do have seem to be able to help with the distortion. BTW, I like your website and your photography. very nice.
