There is a great little art exhibit currently running at the Japanese Friendship Garden in San Diego's Balboa Park. 50 different artists, working in all sorts of different media, were invited to each produce an artwork of a fish, which would be displayed on a 2' x 2' piece of black matte tile. The tiles are arranged in a grid pattern on the floor of the exhibition pavilion. It's very different, and some of the interpretations are quite creative. Some were so creative that a photograph just could not convey what it was. I only took a few shots of a few of pieces, but the whole thing was great. If you are in San Diego between now and July 15 this is worth stopping in to see.

I was shooting with my favorite "walking around" set up, the X-Pro2 with the XF23 f2. Velvia Jpg…
Having a hard time deciding what to do. Currently I have an X-T2 and X-H1 but have wanted a view finder style camera. Looking at XPro 2 and XE3. Question is should I get the XE3 and wait until an XPro3 comes out in a couple years or bite the bullet and get the XPro2 now. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks…
Shot hand held and saved as JPG. Only edit was very slight vertical alignment and resize for uploading. Processed in LR 6 Legacy. See border for EXIF data.
Don't know if the firmware update made an improvement, or if it was already brilliant, but I am very please with the results. Also ISO 5000 is amazing…

Ordinary photos and "Dark Animal Portraits"
In the second post of this topic more photos!

I am looking at getting a wide angle lens and both the Fujifilm XF 14mm F2.8 R and the ZEISS Touit 2.8/12 fit the bill at about the same price. My main use is architectural photography with some landscape. I am hoping that someone out there has had experience of both these lenses and can give a comparison review. I will be using it with a X-T2. Thanks for any advice…

When you buy a camera that is just under two grand, it should switch on when you try. But today yet AGAIN my X-T2 did or would not turn on at all, I had to take out the battery each time and once it was put back it turned on fine. I have seen on the Net that the X-T2 has a bad habit of doing this and for such a camera at the price they charge, IT SHOULD NOT HAPPEN, so off to Jessops tomorrow. Shooting in full manual, battery fully charged yet it wants to dork around…
I have been using XT10 for around 3 years, just with 18-55 lens. I wanted to add a new lens 10-24mm for landscapes and architect photo shooting for long time, now I got the chance because I will have a long trip for travel so it seems I have a pretty good reason Haha
At the same time, I am thinking should I also upgrade the body to X-T20?
Anybody here same with me used XT10 before and now using X-T20 can tell the differences?
Recommend or not? Thanks a lot!…
Photo of my father and his pastor taken during his 95th birthday celebration. Dad is a WWII purple heart recipient who was seriously wounded by a machine gun ambush in Germany 11 days before the end of the war with Germany. This left him with a lifetime disability and shrapnel throughout his body with some metal particles still being surgically removed as late as six years ago. He gets up every day at 5:00am or sometime earlier and three times per week heads to the church owned gardens where he sponsors and mentors students who participate in a vegetable growing program for their community food banks. Through this program he tutors the young students and works with them in the garden to teach them how to grow their own food. This is a skill that seems to be almost lost to city kids in this day of fast food enterprises. His never ending jokes are as old as he is and we have heard them many times however that’s better then the grumpy attitudes we see from some of his generation who have had less life experiences then he has but seem to complain more. His mind is spooky sharp and despite my best efforts to forget them, he remembers every stupid thing I ever did. One of his jokes which is based on truth is that he and the Christ child have something in common. They were both born in barns. He says that the difference is that Christ got out of the barn after a few days while he (and his 11 siblings) lived in it until he went off to the army during the war. It’s true, a thin wood wall divided the family from the animals who occupied the same structure and the house/barn did not have running water…
Fascinated by these traditional lime-stone huts with their domed roofs in Apulia's Itria Valley. They still serve as residential dwellings or storehouses in the fields, are built without mortar. Traditionally, they could be dismantled immediately when a tax assessment was due, so property taxes could be avoided in the old centuries.
Taken with XT-1 and 60mm /f 2,8, 90mm/f2 and 23/ f 9
Lately I've been shooting with my new 23mm 1.4 on a X-T20 and I'm loving it. But I noticed a strange noise pattern in night shots that i've never seen before with my 35mm 1.4 or 18-55mm. It looks like hot pixels and it appears as soon as you push up the shadows and exposure just a little bit.
The files were converted to DNG in Iridient X-Transformer and processed in Lightroom. Here are some screenshots I took for demonstration:
Is that normal?? I know that there should be some noise, but I've never noticed anything similar to that.
I have just returned from a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Scandinavia from Cape Town, South Africa.
As you can imagine, my photographs act as my memories for time to come and these picture are very important to me.
I took along two camera bodies : X-T2 and X-T20. BOTH failed, and reported "Card Read Error" messages.
Looking carefully at the corrupted files, I see they are numbered #4001, #5001 and #1001 respectively.
(the prefix FUJX refers to my X-T2 and the prefix FUJZ is for images from the X-T20 - so it happened on both bodies).
It seems clear to me that when the Fuji filing system opens a new folder on the SD card for a new 1000 pictures, something goes awry.
I shot both RAW+jpg and the corresponding jpg's came through fine.
However, I did remove the cards as soon as I got the error and THANK GOODNESS had sufficient additional
memory cards with me to carry on shooting.
This is very bad and a dangerous glitch - it is unrelated to the brand or size of card used.
I used Lexar and SanDisk memory cards, sized 64 gb (two of them) and 32 gig for the 3rd one.
I keep vacillating between buying an X-H1 and Nikon D500, prices for all practical purposes equal.
I have Fuji primes, 14, 23, 35x2, and 50; Nikon 35/1.8, 10-24 Tamron, 24-70mm Tamron zoom, and 80-200/2.8 Nikkor zoom (the best IQ of the Nikon litter) plus a Voigtländer Nokton 58mm/1.4 SII and Nikon G to X Mount adapter; X-Pro1 & 2, D7200 body. Both Tamrons have VC.
Nikon kit used for family events, fast moving kids, and photographing rugby matches plus anything requiring a zoom; Fuji for everything else and preferred for family events not in a dark setting because of its blending quietly into the background.
D500 adds more robust body, vastly increased frame rate, and lightening fast (and more accurate) AF.
X-H1, well, it is Fuji. I had an X-T1, fondled an X-T2 - size and ergonomics just didn't work for me compared to X-Pro form factor. I am not interested in video.
D500 battery is a big plus (I can go for a week or more without charging the D7200 battery), X-Pro batteries are an annoyance, X-H1 not encouraged by what I read - I have probably a half dozen NP 126.
I've read and studied image reviews re ISO performance and IQ.
So if you've read this far, thank you - I'm wondering about the potential performance of my zoom kit adapted to an X-H1. Perhaps the notion is completely infeasible, I do not know. Would "C" mode eat batteries (a deal killer for me) - I never shoot in "C" with Fuji - mostly a MF guy.
Looking forward to mastering (I hope) my new camera, and also being a part of this forum!
How do I select a single image to upload via wireless. I am following all the instructions but cannot seem to be able to select a single image, when I connect it is uploading all images from the camera.
Any help much appreciated. Thanks…
I am not an experienced b&W street photograph, but I am trying to get some experience, these shots were taken yesterday with my new X-T20 + 23mm f2
Taken as Raf so I can edit just in case
What do you say?
I've owned a X-T20 for about 3 weeks and it locksup whenever I go to 'wireless communication'. I have to power off to continue use.
I have tried multiple different SD cards all formatted in camera and have the latest firmware V2.00. I have reset wireless setting to default and tried different lenses.
This doesn't seem to be a common problem so I assume it's local issue with my camera.
Any other suggestions out there ?…
The Depth of Field scale that runs horizontally along the bottom of my X-T20 screen seems to have disappeared. I'm not finding a selection to turn it on/off, nor am I finding anything in the manual about that. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thank you…
I was rather bored taking out my 90mm f2 on T10 (Pro2 broke down recently haha)
i bought a new fuji 14 this weekend and it comes with a petal hood. i hate petal hoods.
is anyone using an alternate hood on the 14 and how is that working for you?…
