My wife and I visited Italy for a couple of weeks. It was not a photographic trip but I did take the X-T2 along for its light weight and I pretty much carried it everywhere. Without question this is the easiest digital camera to use that I have had, mainly due to the old school use of dials on the body to accommodate almost every change I would make (as opposed to digging through menus). Here's a sampler of images from the trip - jack of all trades, master of none - I shoot in many different ways and enjoy many different subjects.
#1 - 55-200 at 55mm, f11, 1/8, ISO 200
#2 - 18-55 @55mm, f7, 1/60, ISO 800
#3 - 55-200 @ 70mm, f8, 1/900, ISO 800
#4 - 18-55 @ 55mm, f8, .6, ISO 800

I would like to add a flash system to my Fuji XF 80mm. Unfortunately, as it's often the case with Fuji products, finding quality accessories is a pain. Apart from speedlights, and $20 macro rings that will probably die after a month, there's not much, and the rare third-party pieces of equipment available usually only cover Nikon/Canon/Sony...
Anyway, after an extensive search, I believe my options are the following:
- Speedlight -> enough choice, but not the best for macro
- Macro rings -> I only found some cheap stuff, though not I sure I want to waste my money on those
- Twin flash -> like the Nikon R1C1, or the cheaper Please login or register to view links from Meike (which, sadly, isn't available for us, Fujists...)
If I put aside the first option, I can't seem to find a Fuji-compatible solution for options 2 and 3. However, I came across Please login or register to view links and particularly this comment:
Are you looking at ringlights? Unfortunately there are no TTL ringlights for Fuji. But Canon compatible ringlights will trigger off the Fuji hotshoe using manual exposure setting.I'm a total noob regarding flash photography. What I understand is that a flash can be configured manually, to provide a given amount of light. I don't mind that.
But what I don't understand is, will any flash fire when mounted on my Fuji camera? Or do I need a specific brand (like only Canon) or an adapter?
Can a product like the Meike Please login or register to view links for Canon/Nikon/Whateveron, or something Please login or register to view links, work on my Fuji camera, in manual mode? Will my camera be able to tell the transmitter on the hot shoe to tell the flash to fire?
Thank you for enlightening me, because I'm totally lost!

- Preview EXP/WB - off
- Preview PIC. Effect - off

Two contrasting scenes I've been fortunate enough to take pictures of - inevitably with different cameras over a gap of 35 years. The first was taken from West Berlin with a Canonet QL17 in 1983, showing the Brandenburg Gate entirely behind the Berlin Wall, with no access whatsoever and the grim warning "You are now leaving West Berlin" clear enough for all to see. The second was taken during October 2016 from the former East Berlin side during the "Berlin Leuchtet" week which we came across quite by chance, with people nonchalantly passing through the Gate as they wish in a mood of celebration. I must say I did wonder how many of these had any idea how different the place was up until 27 years previously - when any floodlighting would have been there for a completely different purpose. At the same time I felt privileged to have witnessed both scenes - the downside is that it's got me scrabbling about for any other "Then and Now" images I can scrape up from photos going back 60 years. It would be great to see any images forum members may have spanning years of their own experience of the history we all have to live through.

In the good old days, when ISO was ASA,there was a constant argument.
Is 35mm good enough for landscape photography? On one hand we had the yes vote, on the other users of larger formats choking on their indignation as they extolled the virtue of other formats, going up from medium format to 16x20 and beyond.
Now I read in another thread someone asking if the X-T20 is good enough for this type of photography, and nobody has rushed to say the X-T20 isn't, no, they have all started on about lenses.
Now I think the question should be. " Are sensors of 23.6 mm x 15.6 mm (APS-C) large enough for landscape photography?
Or should we all rush out and buy Hasselblads ?
I have no opinion............I never have rated the genre…

Hi, I am trying to find out if anyone else is experiencing the issue I am having with my X-T20. In back-lit situations the exposure can vary wildly. I can see the problem as soon as I half-press the shutter, so I release and repress and most of the time the image is better exposed.
I am using multi-pattern metering. I believe that it should be able to cope with this situation. Obviously exposure compensation is useless as the exposure varies between frames.
I don't want to send the camera in if this is a general problem. I had this issue with the previous firmware and the current 2.00. I'm using an XF18-55 or XF16-55 lens.
Here is an example:

I have just gotten into Fuji mirroless with the purchase of an xt10 and a couple of light lenses (18mm + 27mm) and a leica m adapter. One of the few things that bothers me is that since there is only an EVF, when I pick up the camera to frame and turn it on, there is always a slight lag before the EVF comes into view. So my question is: for cameras with the hybrid OVF\EVF, if I would just leave it in EVF mode would I always have a viewfinder and frame when raising the camera to my eye, even while off or powering up? I assume so but wanted to confirm. Thanks!…

Is there anyway to up the contrast on the X100F, or any other Fuji camera for that matter?
I’m looking for a high contrast monochrome jpg out of camera. No editing.

We are headed to North Dakota for a week to visit our daughter/husband and our grandchildren (all 8 of them!) Most of the time will be spent around their small town, although we will have a trip to Roosevelt National Park which is only about 30 minutes from their home. Also 2 days down to Mount Rushmore. I really want to pack light for this trip, so decided on just the 2 camera bodies (T1, T2) and 3 lenses ... 18-55, 55-200, and the 35/1.4 ... along with Nisin i40 flash ... and of course all the extra 'stuff'. Although I do have several backpacks, and two Think Tank rollers, I decided to go even smaller. I have a small insert for the gear, which then goes into the small Samsonite under-seat roller. It does fit under the seat of airlines, even the small regional planes .. as well as overhead. (cell phone images)

My grandfather loved photography. He’d always roll up with this bag carrying his beloved Agfa. When I’d visit he’d bring out the bag and produce the camera like it was the Crown Jewels! He’d get me as a kid to write down speed and aperture settings when he was shooting. We spent a day trying to take a photo of a dart touching a balloon before it popped. We would rush to the darkroom and get 24 exposures of a dart hanging midair .
Now he’s gone I have this bag. It was his prized possession, which no one in the family seemed to know! His camera gear was the only thing I asked for. Everyone looked at me like I was crazy ( which I probably am). I want to put my Fuji gear on it, but don’t want to damage the bag and the memories. What do you think? Would you use it?
Took this with the legendary 23 1.4, a lens pop would’ve loved as he only had the 35mm

I have this lens (XF mount version) for about 4 month, and like how it performs on Fuji X-E2s.
The only thing I was missing - is click-stop aperture. Today I've finally made that mod : )
It's quite simple if you have proper tools and repair skills, so including related article to use:

Is it possible to send lenses to Fuji in order to tighten up the aperture rings? Has anybody had any luck with this?
I own the 14mm, 23mm 1.4 and 56mm 1.2, and when pulling them out of the bag, the aperture changes every time, its really quite annoying…

(sorry about the title, should've been "silver")
I'm about to pull the plug on a bundle X-E3 + 23mm/f2. I already own an X-T2 and would like to try the X-E3 when I don't want to/can't carry the X-T2 with heavy lenses. Everything I own from Fuji is black.
I thought maybe for once buy a silver camera, like in the olds film days : ). The best deals on bundles include a black 23mm lens. My question for you, silver owners, is how does this (silver camera + black lens) look, good, bad? Should I pay more to get the silver lens? what do you think? The camera has that black front so I am not sure it makes a huge difference.
On the other hand, all the other X-lenses I have are black, so maybe I should just stick to that color and forget it....

As this thread title suggests, is there a way to stop the X100F from autofocusing when you depress the shutter button? And I mean TOTALLY deactivating it. I’ve programmed the button on the optical/EVF toggle switch to serve as AF Lock…
You won't believe how I broke X-T2 (apologies for the "graphic" image, this may sting a little bit).

Story - I was sitting on a bench with those holes in it and had my camera sitting next to me with a quick strap on, so it was slinged on my body. I was waiting for the reception to start for a wedding. When I decided to stand up and head to the reception I heard this loud CRACK. At first, I thought my lens cap dropped, but when I looked at my camera that was the result. My theory - I had the peak design snap caps attached in place of the camera strap, and it fell in one of the small bench holes and yanked my camera apart. I didn't even know this could happen to cameras, it's almost comical. You'd think the strength of the camera would keep me in place. REST IN PEACE

I have a x-2 with a 27mm lens and hood that I am carrying around as my "always with me" camera, which I would like to protect more than just keeping it within my jacket! Am thinking of a soft ever ready type case or a neoprene type sleeve, something small and discrete. Any suggestions please?…

Found a 2.0 TC at such a killer price that I figured “why not?”
Nice clear night. At 400mm with the TC being at F11 probably doesn’t matter much since the moon is so bright. Will try stopped down on a tripod tonight just for fun.

I think IBIS really makes a handheld shot like this possible and love having it as an option.
