First question/topic:
So I was perusing the thread with the serial number survey and realized the X-Pro 1 that I recently bought was manufactured in 2016. The camera was listed as "new in box" from the seller, so out of curiosity, I went to Fuji's US website to see if I could register the camera for a warranty. All the requested information was submitted and the registration accepted.
In spelunking around a bit more on Fuji's website, there is a list of "authorized dealers". My E-Bay seller is definitely not on the list. Is purchasing from an authorized dealer a requirement for warranty coverage?
In looking at the strap lugs on my camera, I definitely do not have the hardened inserts to protect against wear. I've seen folks commenting that their X-Pro 1's had the inserts. I would have thought the the latest models would have had them. Is their any rhyme or reason for the inclusion/non-inclusion?

It was cold and sunny today, so mum and I caught the bus up to Devils Dyke where we had a lovely walk along the South Downs, then had lunch in the Devils Dyke Inn. All taken with the X-T2 + XF 35mmf2 on manual mode. More in the reply.

Not sure either what makes a good photo (except when others do it) or that it's my cuppa.
Yes I know that No2 is poorly focussed but the right idea?

if my ISP starts throttling content or raising prices, I may change the way I use the internet, if not stop all together.
I could always pay bills and read emails with my phone, but paying more for a slow, desktop PC internet experience, may stop my internet use all together.
... so long to online software like LR and PS CC?
Think the issue of Net Neutrality will affect you?

My new X-T1 and XF18-55 kit lens arrived this afternoon. Beautiful equipment! I played and played with it until I ran into what seemed like an issue: the aperture could not be changed with the rear command dial in either A mode or M mode.
What I did:
- "M" mode: switch on lens taken off the "A" position, shutter dial set at a position other than "A". Tried turning the rear command dial. No change. Aperture showed F2.8 when lens was set at 18mm zoom position, and F4.0 when lens was set at 55mm zoom level. In other words, max aperture at given zoom setting.
- "A" mode: switch on lens taken off the "A" position, shutter dial set at "A". Tried turning the rear command dial. Same incorrect behavior as above.
In Menus - Shooting Mode, "Aperture Setting" was set at "A+Manual" and the selection is greyed out so I could not try any other choices.
The manual (page 82) said "Aperture can not be adjusted while the view through the camera lens is zoomed in". I made sure this was not the case.
I have also tried cleaning the contact points on the lens and the camera body.
What did I miss? How do I adjust the aperture in A and M modes? Did I have a defective lens/body?
Thanks for any help you can provide…

I just have ordered the X-E3 it is as it looks like the camera for me to replace my X-M1.
But the more i read about it the more i see it as it will also rival my X-Pro2.
The X-Pro2 is a nice camera and i did per-order it and i was very happy with it till i discovered the grid artifacts getting on my pictures very quick if i push for it. Though i never had grid artifacts ever on my X-Pro2 in normal to more critical use.
Still it bugs my brain every time i pickup this camera knowing that my X-Pro1 is there, who is immune to it (what ever i did, i never was able to reproduce grid artifacts on my X-Pro1).
So there is some kind of mistrust towards my X-Pro2 which is actually not fair but i just cant help it.
I did make my mind up not to buy any Fuji camera with this sensor. Now i just did. This time i will not make any grid artifact tests. So my mind will not play evil to me while i pickup the camera.
It will replace the X-M1 for following reason: EVF, touchscreen, Bluetooth, usb charge
I miss the EVF on the X-M1.
I will miss the tilt screen for sure but i'm still flexible...
Bluetooth for Geo-tagging once Fuji will do an useful implementation (Hope they get some modern thinking software designer)
The X-M1 sensor is special and not to compare with the new one, so i dont expect anything more from the X-E3 as from the X-Pro2 which is fine but the X-M1 sensor with it's imperfections has something, while the X-Pro1 has even more soul.
The Touch screen, even if not required, it's the evolution in usability which needs to be followed with new products. Fuji will fine tune this features and usability over time so give them the credits they need to be motivated to do so.
USB charging, the question comes to my mind if you can power the camera over USB to keep it running...
The plan is, to eliminate my complex cabling and module setup.
I will just need my power-bank and an USB cable and i'm good for several days.
I'm very excited getting all my setup tests. First will be mounting the MHG.

I'm so new it's embarrassing. :confused:
I just purchased my xt-2 and two lenses. I have no idea where to begin. I did figure out how to take pictures in Auto mode on camera and lens but that's about it. I want to learn how to use the lenses.. how to focus... basic stuff. Where can I get basic info?…

My flash works by random.
I cant seem to find a “force flash” option on my camera so the flash activates randomly.
When i check the menu, i have only “off/TTL/M/Commander” those 4. No “force flash”.. so at parties, my flash just goes random depending on the auto exposure. I also notice if its pitch black, it doesnt activate the flash. But if your photo has some overexposed stuff similar to being “behind the light”, it activates it.
Any help? I just want the flash to work during parties in every shot…

I enjoy trying new things, especially when it works out.
I'm new to any sort of off camera flash. My Godox TT685F arrived today. I was waiting for this to use on my new lightstand, Godox soft box and X1TF trigger.
First job was to crank up the ancient PC and update the X1TF firmware. The trigger was then working with the TT885F.
I then assembled the lightstand and soft box (a bit of a jack in the box moment here) and while I was at it I looked for a suitable model. Using manual, my X-T2 and 55-200 I just played around with light intensity without even looking at my camera settings (Aperture priority, ISO200).
From LR 1/40 F3.7 and 74mm.
1/4 power in manual seemed close. I'll spend more time at this when my wife is home to model and there's better window light. Oh my 56 1.2 should be here then too. Lots of learning still to happen.

Living in a rural community, there is no shortage of possible areas to photograph. I was out hunting as our most recent snow storm was coming to an end...or so I thought. It was just a break, because it kicked back into full force again shortly after I took this shot.

Hi guys,
I waited for this feature that I could change the focusing point with eye at the EVF and it's so dissapointing. Completely zero control. I wish they added an absolute position touch. So that the area on the touchscreen is your sensor area and whenever you touch, the focus point moves there. Now I keep swiping for forever before the focus point actually moves... usually to where I don't want it…

Since I was unable to get any decent shots of the super moon I set out the next (foggy) morning for a walk with the X-T2/55-200 and got some interesting shots of the sun. Here’s one, slightly adjusted with Snapseed on my iPad., not sure how it will upload. Curious what you think, thanks…

Not yet listed on Amazon via Adorama, because it's not yet released.
Flash Havoc noted that only groups A-C can be set to TTL; groups D&E are manual-only. (This is actually the same on the Canon XPro for pre-2012 bodies).
My last word of advice before you rush to put in a pre-order :), make sure you get/have a USB C cable that can connect to your computer if you want to do firmware updates. My XPro-C didn't come with one. Happily, My Godox A1 did (it, too, only has a USB C port, but requires the cable for charging), so I was able to do the recent firmware upgrade for the XPro-C. Unlike previous Godox gear, this one is not using a micro-USB port, and the ports look similar in size…

I have an XT-2 purchased used, presumed to be out of warranty. It is fully functional except that if the battery is removed all user-programmed settings are found to be reset to factory default upon re-installation and power-up. I’m guessing that the internal permanent battery is defective (seems too new for it to have lost effectiveness through age). Does anyone have any insight or experience with this problem, and advice before I send it in for possibly expensive repair?…

Hi, moving over to Fuji from Olympus & have a few questions for you experienced IR users. I'm selling my beloved full spectrum E-M5 which has been used for lots of 720nm IR.
W/ the Oly, I use a custom WB off grass in sunlight + a custom IR camera profile in LR for raw development. For sun lit subjects, I usually do Red-Blue swap. For subjects in shade, I typically do BW conversion in NIK - examples attached. Also have RawTherapee but don't use it much.
I'm thinking I'll convert an X-T10 to 720 IR w/ Kolarie w/ their IR anti-reflective filter. Own an X-T2 & have pixel peeped to see differences between 16 & 24 Mp sensor.
So here's my questions:

  • What raw development workflow do you use for IR?

  • If you use LR, are you happy with the results you're getting? Seeing artifacts? How about Clarity adjustments?

  • Any of you using an IR camera profile in LR? Results?

  • Those of you who have converted a 24 Mp sensor camera are you finding any significant differences in you results?
