    Fuji SSD and Lightroom

    Lightroom NEEDS an SSD drive. Think about it - you never have to save your work in Lightroom, Why? Because Lightroom save to the hard drive every move you make. So writing to the hard drive 90% of the time. The faster the hard drive the faster the software. I have a 12" Macbook Air 1.6 GHz...

    Fuji Showcase Fujinon XC 15-45mm 3.5-5.6 OIS PZ

    Interesting report. I just put one on back order that I believe will come in around the end of the month. I plan to put it on my back up XT-1 to carry with me when I don't want to carry the XT-2 with all my other lenses. It'll likely stay in the car for those last minute decisions to go...

    Fuji Bracketing

    I believe the latest firmware update on the XT-2 increased bracketing to 9. I have mine currently set to 5.

    Fuji New to me 60mm

    The 60 is a great lens. I use it all the time. At 1:2 instead of 1:1 like the 80, it is more a Close Up lens than Macro, but that has always been close enough for me. It is my go to lens for flowers and butterflies.

    Fuji XF80mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro has some interesting properties

    Very good comments. This confirms my first thoughts when I saw the price. With the time Fuji took to develop this lens and changing from an original 120 mm to an 80 this lens was in development for quite some time. Without the chance to handle it I suspect it is a fantastic lens. I would...

    Fuji Now where did I lay my checkbook?

    Yep, I'll definitely be keeping my 60 and my extension tubes. At $1399 what are they thinking? We are made of money!!!! Way over-priced for a Macro, all the competitors are priced less than $1000. That was my limit I made for my decision on that lens and they are $400 over. So I will just...

    Fuji When shooting vertically...

    I rarely shot vertical until I bought the vertical grip for my XT-2. Now I would say most mt shots are vertical. When I am without the grip it is, right hand over top. That grip made a great improvement on my photographic skills.

    I have found the hard drive makes a major difference. My system with the HHD drive can take hours to load, while the system with the SSD drive is almost instantaneous.

    Fuji New Firmware for Fuji X cameras

    I heard the rumors, now it looks like I'll be busy when I get home from work today. I own an XT-2 and use an XT-1 as backup.

    Fuji Any thinking of buying the GFX?

    It does strike me as a fantastic camera. I suspect it produces extremely sharp excellent photos but likely would not keep up with the AF of the XT-2 so likely outstanding for non-action shots and more suited for studio or Landscape style of shooting. With the larger sensor and up to date Fuji...

    Fuji XT2 RAF files on iPad - Import works but without showing pictures

    My Apple systems can't show the RAW files either. I believe Apple just hasn't updated the O/S yet to handle it. My preference is Lightroom and Lightroom handles them very well, but without Lightroom likely the simplest solution is to shoot RAW + jPEG and view the jPegs until Apple updates or...

    Fuji X-T2 ??? Where's the chatter?

    Well, I got my XT-2 out this morning chasing Butterflies. Mostly it reminded me of the best photography advice I ever received "Learn the equipment you have first". It is a little different than the XT-2 mostly in the menus. I kept putting it in boost mode when I wanted to change to zone...

    Fuji X-T2 ??? Where's the chatter?

    I have my XT-2 in - had it in since Monday, but have not yet had much of a chance to play with it. I plan to take it out this afternoon and tomorrow to see what it really can do. So far In-House it is VERY nice. I like the new ergonomics and the one inside shot I took, I loaded into Lightroom...

    Fuji Fuji X-T10 or X-e2s?

    Yep, I didn't want it on my XT-1, I felt it was just something I'd never use and just something to break. Then I started using the camera and getting older; It came in very handy. Now I love it and would never do without it! The additional direction is one of the reasons for my XT-2 pre-order.

    Farnborough Air Show 2016

    You guys just have to keep doing this to me!!! Incredible great photos!! I keep telling myself "No" to the 100-400 as I want the XT-2 and yes it is pre-ordered and paid for so now I am just going to have to penny-pinch until I can get the 100-400.
