    Fuji The great Camera purge at MPB

    They are an excellent company. Good prices, fast service, no-questions-asked return policy. Very trustworthy. I've bought and sold stuff with them for over 5 years.

    Film Shooting 70mm film: Murder on the Orient Express

    I saw this film over Christmas and was blown away by it - at every level. The cinematography was superb; a feast for the eyes. Acting was absolutely top notch too. One of my favourite films of all time I think. Interesting that it was filmed on 70mm film - I had assumed high-end digital.

    Fuji Raw converter that finally does the X sensor justice?

    I don't understand that. Surely the image undergoes de-mosaicing (and tone curves etc) before the film simulations are added?

    Fuji Raw converter that finally does the X sensor justice?

    Not looking to start any forum war here, but I often wonder if the X-trans idea has had its day. It was conceived to allow Moire-free images without the need for a AA filter. But it seems that most Bayer cameras now don't have AA filters either and Moire never seems to get mentioned...

    Fuji Used x-pro2 with mark on sensor - should I keep it?

    It could just be a streak left from cleaning. I'd call them and say you're not happy but would be prepared to keep the camera if they can sort out the streak. They need to cover postage of course.

    Fuji Ken Rockwell on X-T2...

    I suspect he's not even touched the camera.

    Fuji Freedom aka small is beautiful and goodbye EVF lenses (X-Pro2)

    Maybe I need to try it. Last OVF I used was on the Canon 5dii I sold back in 2012.

    Fuji Freedom aka small is beautiful and goodbye EVF lenses (X-Pro2)

    What specific advantage does the OVF give over the EVF? For me the whole point of mirrorless cameras is the EVF and the features that brings (constant view of exposure, overlaid camera settings, level, focus peak/magnify, over/under exposure warnings, ...).

    Fuji Ken Rockwell on X-T2...

    Ken Rockwell? - ha, ha, ha.... As regards IQ though - almost any ILC camera is capable of stunning quality in the right hands. Which system is right for you depends on a lot more than IQ.
