    A few from the opera evening.

    I like these- very atmospheric! I love 'sun-kissed' photos... P7040284p_Snapseed by Stephen Lang, on Flickr

    Expired Want to Buy: Seeking Import tax info | Location: USA | Ships: USA

    I don't know the exact rules, but just wanted to say I've bought 2-3 used items from Australian sellers in the past, and never had to pay any sort of tax or fee. I am pretty certain if the seller just indicates that the goods are used, you won't have to pay anything. 1 of my purchases was...

    Micro 4/3 Panasonic GX80 (GX85) Is it the GF1 we always wanted?

    This looks really great to me- it combines the all the features of the G7 with the styling of the GX7, and adds 5-axis IBIS to boot! This will be fantastic for video, and the filterless sensor should be great as well.

    Fuji Livin' the Low-Fi Life

    This is how I bought mine. I actually emailed the seller and told them I only wanted the teleconverter, and they significantly reduced the shipping cost for me.

    Fuji Livin' the Low-Fi Life

    The X10 is a GREAT camera, the lens is sharp and 6MP has excellent dynamic range- plus it just feels great to hold and use. The only reason I still don't own one is I needed telephoto and better video, so now have another low-fi camera- Nikon V1. Either is capable of very nice 8 x 10's, which...

    Fuji AF issue or normal? -X-E1

    The GM1 is much better at picking up even a smallest bit of contrast to focus on. That being said, I don't think there's necessarily a right or wrong answer to what the camera should do when there's nothing to focus on. Had you been pointing your camera at a totally unmarked wall 5 feet away...

    Fuji Experiences with Fuji XA-1/XM-1 vs Nex

    The Samsung + pancake seems like a great choice- especially at that price! I think the X-M1 or X-A1 would have been fine with the Fuji pancake, given that you don't need/want an EVF. I think it would have given you a similar shooting experience to the Samsung. I guess the NX300 does have phase...

    Fuji Using an XM1 or XA1 for legacy glass

    Have you ever used one of those rear screen magnifiers/giant eyecups? They look kinda goofy, but give a really nice view IMO. Don't know if you might be able to use one of those, as opposed to a regular EVF. If you are rear screen only, I think the X-A1/X-M1 have higher resolution (and slightly...

    Fuji Metal Handgrip/ L-Plate for Fuji X100/X100S- $18.02 Free Shipping (EBay)

    Hard to see any downsides at this price (I am not the seller, I actually just bought one)- The brand is 'Neewer', I've seen 'iShoot' labels before on these but my guess is they're all the same. There are 3 left, so make haste! These are usually $40-50 and up.

    Fuji $12 Acme Made Union Kit Photo Messenger Camera Bag (black)

    The smaller one is still available, it is arguably a better fit for a small M43 outfit ($11 shipped), depending on many lenses you want to carry- iTech Deals: Daily Deals on Electronics and Phone Accessories

    Fuji New to the XF1 - now X100T..gone. It's over

    I think it's strength- EXR sensor (dynamic range)- is also its downfall- EXR sensor (resolution). For the current price, it's a great snapshot camera, easy to use with nice color and easy to preserve highlights. I also like the handling, styling, and manual zoom mechanism.
