What function did you folks assign to the front click wheel. Coming from X100S I can't decide what to use. Of course it depends on shooting style etc.. Just curious…

Since last weeks major spam attack I have had problems accessing the forum. The speed of page loading has slowed to a crawl and many time simply times outs out and returns a browser timeout error message.
The problem seems to be between the Portal and the actual forum pages. The Portal itself loads slower than previously but it does load. When I click on any links from the portal they basically don't link. The only way I got to post this was to bypass the portal and go straight to www.fujix-forum.com/forums/
I have been travelling and using hotel wifi, public wifi, 4G GSM and branch office access but now I am back on a known service speed the errors persist.

I'm leaving on Sunday for a week in Cancun Mexico (Playa Del Carmen) at an all inclusive and looking for advice on equipment and any experience on what photo opportunities I might find. We do plan at couple of side trips including a trip to Tulum. My current travel kit is the 10-24mm, 16-55mm (yes the brick, I love it), and the 55-200mm with the X-T2. I sometimes bring the 23mm 1.4 for low light. I also have an X-T20 on order as a backup camera. I do like shooting with two bodies to minimize the need to change lenses. I've contemplated taking a lighter kit of just the X-T20 and the 14mm, 18-55 and 55-200. Any experience with this area? Are there a good photo opportunities such as beach scenes etc? Also I know it will be very warm and humid. Will the 16-55mm and X-T2 have an advantage from a WR perspective? Also I have an X70 and just got a Samsung S8 (pretty impressed) for casual shots. I appreciate any advice you might have to offer…

For some reason, these young hawks (Cooper's?) have been very noisy lately, raising a real ruckus. If I'm outside, I can hear them all day long. This one seemed to pecking at something I could not see on top of the tree limb, while another one, which I never saw, was also crying and screaming nearby.
I'm very happy with the XC 50-230mm F4.5-6.7 for this kind of shot; this one cropped a bit…

Attended a Nissin flash demo this past weekend at Creve Coeur Camera and was finally able to see if my recently acquired 23/1.4 can do simple portraits with off camera flash and yes it can. The model was lovely and handled the heat (over 100 F) like the pro she was. I am very happy with the result.

I have a 1901 photographi (Shop 1901) camera strap. It's a nice strap but it has metal rivets that I am concerned will scratch the body of my camera. I've tried covering the metal bits with insulating tape but it doesn't stay on for long. So I've been wondering whether heat-shrink tubing might be a way to protect the camera. Has anyone tried this?

Hi all,
I recently purchased an X-t20 and have been loving it. I'm enjoying the Fuji system, the IQ is great and it's really fun to shoot in general. I've been considering getting an X-t2 at some point in the future largely for some of the physical properties it has, such as access to the battery and card compartments while on a tripod, the joy stick, and weather sealing, of course. My question is, how weather resistant is it? We were at Niagara Falls the other day and half the time I pulled out the camera to shoot the wind would shift and a steady stream of mist (more like a light rain!) would come at us, forcing me to dash out of range to protect the camera. With my Canons (7D and 5DII) I've shot in light rain and snow without an issue. How weather sealed is the X-t2? Do the WR lenses require filters to complete the seal as some Canon lenses do? How much moisture can they handle?
Any thoughts and experiences on using a non WR camera such as the X-t20 in inclement weather?
Many thanks,
Eric…

Recently , I have had problems with my feet /lower legs - age related ? which did not seem to affect my snap shooting ..
Then I realised that I was swaying when taking a photo with the X-M1 .
This has probably been going on for a while , but is most noticeable when holding a light camera away or as a waist level finder .
I am accustomed to a finder of some type , holding the camera to my face either eliminates the sway , or I am not noticing it .
I tried out the heavy M 8 , the opposite situation and found the same problem - especially with uneven surfaces .
It's less pronounced with the X-Pro 1 and my lighter DSLRs .
I know that I have balance issues , but the camera situation has probably been creaping up on me .
I guess I have to find stuff to lean on ! LOL

I bought a cheap leather case for the brand new X-M1 which is fine but it came with a thin , shiny , strap .
My other cameras are reasonably heavy ... the x-M1 is not ..
I should have known better ...
You've guessed it , it slipped off my shoulder onto concrete .
The damage is minimal scruffs to one side and corner of the screen , which I have touched up with model paint . [ it's what I do ].
It now has a substantial strap with a Panasonic ID crisis !

On my X100S I can set it up to work viewfinder only, but when I press Menu or Q they show up on the LCD. How I did this I no longer have any idea.
However, on the F I can set it up to work viewfinder only (and eye sensor - nice) But whenever I press menu or Q they show up in the finder, which I very much dislike.
Can anyone tell me how I can set it up to work like my S? The manual seems to be no help.
Really this new camera is frustrating me with its stupid limitations…

Since I don't do official "photoshoots", most of my portraits are created during my photography course at school.
Unfortunately, this means two things:
1. My models are almost always under 18, so I need a model release to use the pictures I take (which I often don't go through the trouble of getting, since this means involving the parents, etc.).
2. Because I'm teaching photography, I spend most of the time during the course explaining how to set up the camera, pose the model, etc.
With the end of the school year, another fun photography course came to an end. I have loads of fun doing this, because there are always a few students that really want to improve madly.
Natascha is one of them, registering every word out of my mouth and very creative on her own as well.
That's her, using my Mamiya Macro lens to take pictures of butterflies and flower blossoms this spring.
_C5T6960.jpg
I always have one of my cameras with me to document my students working, to create a "behind the scenes" collection for the students to look at. Most of the time, I use the Fuji X-T10 for this, because it's so light and unobtrusive to carry it along, but this year I often brought the Canon with some adapted lenses.
One day in early spring, when we started doing portraits, I managed to get quite a few very nice ones of Natascha. This was just one of those snapshots that I regularly take of my students, and it turned out great.

A friend of the family who knows I enjoy photography wants me to take a fleet shot of his 8 flat bed tow trucks of which he is quite proud. He would like a large wall print if possible from the shoot. We plan on using a large parking lot at a nearby ball park. I have never attempted this type of photo before and have available my x pro2 with a 16mm 1.4, 23mm 1.4 and 18-55 for glass. Thinking of a pie shape shot with the owner in the middle and his drivers/trucks fanned out behind him while I am on a 6' step ladder for some height advantage. Any tips, hints, websites, etc for help would be appreciated…

I've recently picked up an X-T2 and am running it side by side with my usual Pentax K3 for a while in order to decide which system to keep. I generally shoot portraits and travel and the DA 50-135 is by far my favourite lens in Pentax land. It's the focal length that works for me and I typically use it wide open. How I get on with its Fuji equivalent, the 50-140, when I likely take the plunge on it in the coming weeks is therefore crucial to how I get on with Fuji (I like the 56 1.2 but it's not quite long enough, nor does it give me the compression I often want).
So, my question to those of you who have come from Pentax is how you have found the two lenses side by side - not just image quality but also handling the extra bulk of the 50-140 over the relatively lightweight Pentax. I'm used to my 50-135 going with me everywhere and I suspect that won't be possible with the Fuji…

I have assigned face/eye AF to the front function button. However, when I press the function button an option comes up where I must then decide what type of face or eye detection I want, only then, after turning the wheel to choose, can I take the shot. By that time my subject has probably wandered off or died of boredom.
Come on Fuji, this is as bad as the clumsy flash operation where I also have to press two buttons and make choices. How about sorting this out and making this work faster. Why isn't there the choice of choosing one particular mode of face/eye AF in the menu, and then using the assigned function button to just activate it?
The more I get into the detail of certain functions the more I'm experiencing some pretty poor ergonomic decisions that really need some firmware updating. How can they be so clumsy?…

This might take a while.
I've been on a bit of a camera journey for the last few years. It's Fuji's fault completely. I was a Canon shooter. 10D followed by 7D at college. Flirted with Canon film cameras for a while. Scanner etc. the lot.
Then Fuji brought out the X100. Man, it was gorgeous. Too expensive at the time, but so pretty. Carried on with Canon, all the while cheating on it in my head with the X100.
Then I got one. Sold everything else.
Then I got an X-E1.
Then I got an X-T1. Lenses. 35...23...18-55. Wonderful.
The shortcomings started to creep in. The focus speed.
I started shooting weddings. X-T1 did a decent job but I never really got on with the DSLR styling. I kept it for a while then the X100T came out and that was my wedding combo. XT1/X100T. Did some lovely things.
Sensors started to get bigger. Focusing started to get faster. Suddenly I'm flirting with full frame Sony cameras...but no. I hate Sony.
Olympus. Man. That's fast. Smaller. Wonderful lens selection. Pen F. Gorgeous styling.
Sold all my Fuji stuff. Bought a Pen F and a few lenses. The focusing speed is incredible. Leica lenses gorgeous. Shot some weddings, holidays with it. Felt...happy..ish. Something wasn't quite right. It's the colours. The skin tones. They're just not Fuji. Plus limitations with regards to DOF unless using expensive 1.2 lenses and the noise wasn't nearly as pleasing at high iso, or as clean.
So now I'm selling it all and starting again. Question is, to what?
X Pro 2? X-T2? Future X-E3? XT-20?
I know I have a serious problem. No hiding it. No camera is perfect, just go out and shoot and not obsess over gear, but sometimes you need to. The tool needs to be right. Back to the drawing board. Feel free to chime in with recommendations…

Just returned to Fuji and bought the X-T2. Previously I last owned the X-T1 and X-E2 before going over to Sony for a couple of years but now I am returning.
I probably should have noticed before I bought that with the great addition of the thumb stick for moving the focus point around that the Focus Adjust button went away. This is the button which I thought was used for back button focus.
I know the camera can still be set up for back button focus but honestly IMHO the AE-L and AF-L are too small and in a bad place to really give me confidence I can find them easily when wanting to do back button focus.
I there any way to assign AF-ON to the Q button and the Q functionality to something else?
I know it may seem silly but I MUST HAVE back button focus with a real good button, and if I can't switch then this maybe a deal breaker for me. It works really good on all my other cameras.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Steve…

I have a Zeiss 12mm, 23mm WR, 35mm f1.4, 56mm and 90mm. (I also have a 100-400mm That would go with me on special occasions)
With my old DSLR kit, most of the time I would travel with a large ultrawide zoom an a few primes.
But I am thinking my 12+23+35+either 56 or 90 would be very sufficient for most cases.
Do any of you travel with an all prime kit?…
