    Fuji Fuji XF 56mm F1.2 R Pre-Production Samples

    Thanks for some nice examples of how this lens performs, Rico. I've used a 50mm f/1.2 manual focus before and I'm really looking forward to finally having an AF version for low light photography. I preordered on the day it was announced and you've done nothing to change my mind about that :)

    Fuji First image of the X-T1. Thoughts?

    I might have to duct-tape my phone to the back of my camera ;)

    Fuji First image of the X-T1. Thoughts?

    I can't believe it's taken 4 pages of this thread for someone to mention the flip screen! This is THE NUMBER ONE reason I want this camera. I enjoy shooting from the waist, which is hard to do when the screen faces your belly instead of your eyes ;) Furthermore, I hope it is a touchscreen! Have...

    Fuji On my Blog: My Review of the Fuji X-System

    Good overview of the X system, John, though I was a bit surprised you didn't mention that most of the XF lenses are metal on the outside (excepting only the pancakes, I believe). Some people really love their metal lenses... Your images were great, as always; I loved the subdued use of coloured...

    Fuji Fuji Announces XF 10-24mm f/4 Zoom Lens

    Never realised what a wideangle junkie you were, John :p For my part, I'm currently happy with the 14mm, but the reason I got it was because the 10-24mm wasn't out and I didn't know when it would be out. So far the 14mm is a great lens (what little I've had time to use it) and I'll be reading...

    Fuji XE-2 recommendations please for remote or manual shutter release cables? (NT)

    2.5mm port user here too. These cabled releases are ubiquitous and cheap; I got one off of eBay years ago and have used it with 3 brands of camera I have owned so far. It's a simple one that just features half-press to AF and lock press for bulb; enough for my simple needs. I think it was $15...

    Fuji Fuji XE-2 auto iso settings

    OK Rico, now you have to explain to us why ISO is treated differently than its siblings, shutter speed or aperture, and hence why their limits are also treated differently. I am reminded of Animal Farm, where all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. Is the X-E2 part of...

    Fuji Fuji XE-2 auto iso settings

    Rico, I am greatly enjoying our useless discussions on this topic :cool: So here are two major bugs I found for you to report to Fuji: Bug Number 1 While indoors in a darkish room, set your camera to a shutter speed of 1/1000 and the lens aperture to A. Now set Auto ISO with a Max...

    Fuji 14mm DOA

    Yeah, why is that? It's not like all of a sudden you would stop wanting DoF info in the EVF.

    Fuji Fuji XE-2 auto iso settings

    I would like the option to exist for me to choose whether the limit is a real limit, or just a suggestion. I would choose for the limit to be hard, but the camera would still fire, of course, it would simply take an underexposed image.

    Fuji Fuji XE-2 auto iso settings

    I can't increase the ISO because I'm at 6400, and I'd happily push the file in post, but the camera blows past my shutter speed limit in order to expose correctly (but with a much slower shutter speed than I want) when I'm shooting in Av + Auto ISO. The only way for me to work around this is to...

    Fuji 14mm DOA

    I'm pretty sure one of the first pages of these lenses' manual alerts you to how the clutch mechanism works (not to mention every single review out there). Do people really return products without RTFM'ing? I'm having a love-hate relationship with the clutch-focus. On the one hand, I love the...

    Fuji Why Are the X-E2 Dials So Rigid???? (And Other Complaints)

    Of course it's heated—we're talking cameras, dammit! :D

    Fuji Fuji XE-2 auto iso settings

    But you're asking me to accept wrongly exposed results instead. You see, the camera is capable of reaching ISO 25,600 (it does so in JPEG mode), yet if I shoot RAW you are asking me to accept a motion-blurred shot at 1/20s + ISO 6400 instead of the correctly exposed, non-motion-blurred shot I...

    Fuji Why Are the X-E2 Dials So Rigid???? (And Other Complaints)

    That's one option, yes. But I'd rather not have to push a Fn button and not have any type of menu list at all. The ISO number shows up at the bottom of the EVF/LCD display, just have it vary when you turn the rear wheel, like shutter speed and aperture do. I just don't understand why so many...
