  1. I'm considering migrating from a crop-frame DSLR (Nikon D90) to the well-loved mirrorless world of Fuji X. The impetus is my upcoming honeymoon, where we'll be taking our dream vacation to New Zealand and French Polynesia. I can hardly wait to get my eyes on those beautiful landscapes! I was looking at full-frame cameras from Nikon and Canon, but after spending an hour with a work colleague who's maniacal in his love for the X100 series, I've changed course. The challenges I face with my current DSLR (bulky for travel/hiking, multiple lenses but never change them, too much effort to let photos happen organically or take the camera out regularly), seem to be addressed with these smaller, but just as powerful, cameras. As I read more, my excitement increased - people are obsessed with the Fuji color, sensor, and engineering. I do have a few questions before I make the switch. For landscape photography, am I sacrificing up anything major by not going full-frame? Have you been satisfied with your shots in this area? X-T2 vs. X100F - is there one that you would recommend based on my anticipated usage? About me: mid-30's outdoor lover, photo enthusiast, loves photography for travel and capturing lifelong memories of friends/family/moments. As I mentioned, I'm pretty much sold on the smaller profile since I know I'll use the camera more often (vs. pulling out my phone), just wondering about image quality for this once-in-a-lifetime trip! Thanks in advance.

    Two cameras, worth its price!
  5. We all know the effects of the Electronic shutter on moving subjects or when used from a moving platform but from the results of a discussion on another forum I recently reversed my previous habit of using mainly M shutter and swapping to E as necessary to one of using E shutter as standard and switching to M when subject movement was a factor. However, I was doing some tests yesterday to check the bokeh on my Canon FD 300mm lens which, when fitted with its matched X1.4 TC shows just a little nervousness and CA with the very twiggy background to my bird feeders. Without the TC the lens is fine but I noticed this severe distortion from using the E shutter on some of the files. I don’t stand nor hold a camera quite as steadily as I used to so I was using a monopod and light levels were low (see Exif). I was shooting CL to allow for misfocus knowing that I was not holding quite steady. This method has improved my hit rate allowing for some subject movement when shooting with a long MF lens - some even shoot BIFs this way with MF lenses. The distortion you see in two images is the result of very slight camera movement and E shutter. The day was still – in fact foggy and there was no swaying of the bird feeders. Shooting CL allowed me to get some sharp images as you can see and with no distortion usually the second or third of a 5 shot burst - while the distortion is in the first of each sequence as I press the shutter. I’m really surprised at the amount of distortion when camera movement was minor. I'm aware that the E shutter of the XT1 takes as much as 1/15th sec to pass fully across the frame while exposing/activating each row of pixels at the set shutter speed or auto shutter speed but I didn't expect this sort of distortion even taking into account the relatively slow shutter speed 1/300 for the focal length and and minor camera movement. I shall rethink my use of the E shutter with long lenses. XT1, Auto E shutter, Canon FD 300mm f4L @ f4, ISO 5000 and shutter speed as shown. First of each pair is distorted.

    Not much of fog these days so when we got some I managed to get out before it weakened.

    Last week I was asked to photograph my 16yr old granddaughter's prom but I wasn't warned that 2 dozen friends and relatives would be in my daughters back garden. I left most of my gear in the car and had to rely on capturing moments when the hordes of P&S, phone and tablet waving mob allowed me a chance of a clear shot. I hate flash and prefer off guard moments anyway - but it was hard work! I managed one backlit shot with reflector outside the the prom hall and even that was rushed as her friends were arriving (XT1S9634). Her BF is actually younger - Proms are recent (& unwelcomed by parents) introduction to the UK - things have changed since I were a lad. Under those conditions I realise these are far from perfect but let me know honestly what you think anyway.

    My 16 year old granddaughter Mia (I can't believe it!), had her Prom last week. I was asked to photograph the occasion and arrived with flash and reflectors to be used as necessary (I hate flash tho). Unfortunately there were 25 people in my daughter's garden all friends or relatives right up to Mia's 96 yr old Gt GM who was the only person not scrabbling around with a P&S or mostly phone or tablet. I had little chance of posed shots in the relatively small space. In any case I've always preferred off guard moments. I managed just one quickly posed shot shot outside the prom hall with my S-in-L holding the reflector as she was anxious get away to meet up with friends as they arrived (you can see the reflection of the reflector in her eyes - 2nd last or 2nd image depending how these load). Most every shot was grabbed but I'm quite happy with them. Her boyfriend for almost 2 yrs is actually a little younger. Things have changed a lot since I were a lad.

    The lake in my back garden is about 9ft to the far end and 7ft wide with a shallow area for wild life where my largish Koi & Golden Orfe can't reach. Tiny tripod, small aperture 3 shot focus stack. If you're interested, the foreground plant is Creeping Jenny, great for naturalising the pond edge. Shallow rooting from runners, easily removed and replanted just pull off a few bits and press into even very shallow soil or cracks and it will crawl across concrete, rocks etc.
