I'm using snapseed.
Seems the camera set up with appropriate JPEG settings does most of the post for me. I just add a few touches in snapseed.
great for posting to the web with a "no fuss" approach.
But. I'd like to start printing 16 x 20 or a little larger prints.
Is this app powerful enough or is there a better alternative for sharp detailed results for large prints? Or am I better off sending my JPEG to my PC and processing there before printing?…

Hello guys,
It's been long I have come here for some help. The forum has always been helpful to me n I am really grateful to u guys. So whenever I'm in trouble, I simply come here. Now I have a few queries as I have recently started shooting photographs professionally. So here are the qs: (oh I'm using x-t1 & x-t10)
1. In BBF, is there any way to activate Eye Detection? Sometimes I find that even though I'm focusing on the face, due to low aperture the eyes of the subjects aren't as sharp.
2. In Bulb mode, is it normal that the flash won't lighten up? I tried a few times but not a single time it worked. What is it that I'm doing wrong here?
3. Anyone using here Godox X1T trigger? Is there anyway to switch off a specific flash while using multiple flash in a channel? Suppose I have setup 2 flashes. Now first I want to test the 2nd flash for rim light n don't want to fire the main flash, so that I can see its output n then I want to activate the main flash. I mean, I don't want to physically go there n switch it on n off. As I have no assistants n in some situation, it's just cumbersome during weddings.
Thanks a lot guys in advance. Any suggestion will be highly appreciated.

I never use the function, but when I set the Screen Setup/Image Disp. on for testing, I get not one but three frames of the same image. Already quite weird. But weirder still is that when I put it to Off, I still get the same three frames review, but for only a fraction of a second. I'm sure I missed something somewhere and that there is a logical explanation, but what is it? Thank you…

After shooting real estate last night and having a slow morning today, I completely overlooked the fact that I only brought my 20mm/1.8G attached to my D600 for a quick food shoot today and while I could've easily winged it, I'm glad I grabbed XP1 w/ 18/2 just in case since 27mm fares much, much better in these situations!

Followed up a helpful suggestion from another member to use a 35mm lens to get roughly the same proportions for comparing a recent image with one I took well over half a century ago. The facade of the building has obviously been cleared of ivy and had a painting job. Unsurprisingly, the Fuji lens offers a sharper image even against one from a much larger negative - although it's probably an unfair comparison unless the b/w negative itself (lost) has been scanned.

My son just borrowed the X-T2 and he changed some of my camera settings. Now I have to go to the menus and make my own changes. Is there a way to save these settings so I can revert to it quickly…

Unless I'm confused (often the case) it appears my X-T1 files once converted to dng using X-Transformer can then be converted in CS6 including the use of the Fuji profiles like Velvia etc.
However, my X-T2 files do not appear to have this option and open with a proprietary IXv100b4 Iridient Standard (Fujifilm X-T2) camera profile. Any comments - please!…

I’m new to the Forum and having a great time exploring the capabilities of my X-T2 after leaving a Nikon D7000 some ten months ago.
My only slight concern is the use of the rear command wheel. It may well be my thumb (!), but when turning the wheel to make adjustments, I often find I have actually pressed the wheel so zoom in on focus. Do others have this slightly annoying problem? Or do you have any tips to help me avoid it happening? I don’t seem to experience any difficulty when using the front command dial . . .
I have tried wrapping a small, wide rubber band around my thumb which improves matters significantly - but is not an ideal solution long term. I have also ordered some rubber cashier’s thumb grips/needleworker’s thimbles from eBay to see if that resolves things. So if you see a Fujifilm user with a bright orange thumb, do come up and say hello!
Anyway, it would be interesting to hear from others about their use of the rear command wheel…

Hello, a friend has asked me to quote a series of 8 images like this one:

I have limited experience with small Yongnuo 560 iii flashes in my X-Pro1. I'm thinking small flash guns may not be enough to fill scenes like this one.
Should I rent 400 or 600 watts studio strobes?
Thanks in advance!

I feel that the whole photo community has become obsessed with sharpness and gear. I just feel like using only one camera and one lens for the rest of the year. It would habe been awesome to only shoot b&w, but I can't since my cat clients need colour for their purposes…

This winter I spent five days on Safari at Serengeti National Park in Tansania. It was very rainy weather but still absolutely worth it.
My favorite were a herd of Elephants we met a few times. It is not allowed to leave the gravel roads and when animals move one can´t follow. Except looking where they may go to and see if there is another road in their path a few kilometers away and go there. This is what we did and so we had them passing us a few times.

I am finding it very difficult to track BIF, especially using the mechanical shutter. It's slightly better using the electronic one but as soon as one hits the shutter the viewfinder image stops and starts making it very hard to track a moving subject in burst mode.
Where is the mechanical shutter? It's not in the camera body, in front of the sensor, or you'd see it when you take the lens off so it must be in the lens? Doesn't sound plausible to me?…

A (female) spotted woodpecker turned up today to get some gumballs from a liquidamber tree in my garden. Never seen such a visitor before and probably never again, since the magpies apparently resented the intrusion of their territory and chased her away- fortunately not before I had grabbed my XT1, switched lenses and took som pics.

I recently add the 35/1.4 to my collection and have been testing it with my XE3. It feels like a balance made in photog heaven. Only I couldn’t warm up to the square hood, and if I wanted to use a CPL it would’ve been awkward. I just happened to have this round metal 62mm screw-on hood lying around, so I got a 52-62mm stepup ring and mounted it to the lens. Love it! No vignetting, and I can use my (already had) 62mm CPL, and adjust it by simply turning the hood. Dumb post I know, but I was bored and it’s too cold and windy to go out and shoot things right now. Here’s a couple of pics.

I'm looking for acid free archival mats with a 9x12 opening. They are tough to find. Bought some from dickblick to find out they weren't truly acid free.
Where do you guys buy framing supplies?
Trying to avoid cutting my own mats as I need a lot.

Anyone have experience with general repair costs on an X-T1? My EVF has a loose connection - if I squeeze both sides of the 'hump' I can often get it to work, but it's unreliable to say the least. Just uncertain if the repair costs are worth considering vs. putting the money towards an X-T2/3/X-H1 etc…

Recently I stopped to work with this lens after I tried to update the firmware from 1.0 to 1.02. It happened an accident when I started the update. The problem occurs by my fault, I unfortunately interrupted the process because the battery fall down when I moved accidentaly. So, unhappy updated. Since then, that lens never works. It doesn't focus anything, and appears an error on screen Of Please login or register to view links, saying: " ! Please Turn Off the Please login or register to view links and swtich On again" and also blinking a red light near the button DISP BACK. I turned Off many times and started again at the beginning, but it doesn't work. I'd love to resolve this problem or get the old version of firmware Of this lens - FUJINON XF90 mm F2 R WR - The 1.0 - the old version - original - and trying again the update, but very very careffuly with a file ****.DAT in a Empty SD card and full battery, without any interruptions. I'm very sad about this, because I love this lens and it never
dropped down ... never. Only an accident happened when I was updating the firmware ... just it. If anyone knows how can I solve this problem, please: HELP-ME !!
Thanks for your attention. Regards…
