    Fuji Electronic shutter v mechanical shutter

    Will do, thanks. I wonder which one uses the most battery.

    Fuji Electronic shutter v mechanical shutter

    Thanks for both of those replies. So, BobbyT, should I be using the electric shutter for general photography of more or less static subjects? Such as landscape type scenes?

    Fuji Updates

    Is V3.0 the most up to date re-program does anyone know please? Is there a way to increase the frame rate in video mode? I want to do some slow motion type video clips, so want the highest video frame rate I can set the XT2 please. Any help, because the manual is a bit skimpy on this kind of...

    Fuji Electronic shutter v mechanical shutter

    Can someone tell me what the advantage of the electric shutter is please - I have TRIED reading the manual, but to be honest, I don't understand. What is this 'rolling shutter' phenomenon? When and why would you use the electric shutter - someone said wide open in bright sun, but why the...

    Thought these fitted the brief of 'dramatic black & white' taken yesterday on a fishing trip. Then coming in after dark, we lost an engine and had to limp home 28 miles, which meant we were a bit late back!

    Fuji Showcase 16-55mm 2.8

    I had an hour in the morning. And I tried stitching a panoramic, not in phtoshop, I don't have anything that fancy. This was from Panorama Maker 6. I didn't have a spirit level so just had to guess it. If you look at the far water level, it isn't that far off, perspective from the wide angle...

    Fuji Bouncing about on the sea

    Using the XT2 in anger, as in for a paid job. The French boat builder ferried me out to the Isle d'Oloron and wined and dinned me for 4 days while I shot the factory processes, interiors and action shots on a couple of boats for them. These were taken from a small boat that had waves coming over...

    Fuji Showcase 50-140

    50-140 at f22 I think it was...I wanted as much depth as I could get anyway, so whatever it was stopped down to. Being over my head with the tripod on a table it wass all I could do to press the tit !

    Canal fishing

    Had a friend to stay for a couple of days. We took our dog and went to the canal to cast some lures....and I took the camera. We caught a few small pike and Tigs had a great time, but I got a few nice pictures which made me very happy.

    I meant one of those cable operated things...I didn't know there was one already in the camera - it was the cable I didn't want ! Your hot shoe device was on the money for what I had in mind - but it still meant pressing the tit for each shot....the self release jiggery will just keep shooting...

    Fuji Remote release options?

    Something has just occured to me.... The XT2 has a built in intervalometer. If I set the shot up, with the camera to shoot a picture every second.....I don't need a remote release, I just need to ditch about 15 shots from the start of the sequence because they will be empty. From then on, I...

    Wow, how do you know Amazon Uk has it? You're in America! Amazing. I don't even know how to get hold of Amazon over here. I can't find a telephone number for them. As I say, it will be when I have some money, but that doesn't seem too expensive.

    I did look and saw it was for Nikon...I have gone back and looked again and see it is for Fuji too! I will explore the 'shipping to UK' opportunity next week, when I have some money, hopefully. Being 'retired' but with no pension and no crash payout yet, money is a bit tight. That is coming...

    I don't have a phone that will do it. Not buying one either! I quite like that delivery men can't find our house (it has only been here since 1674 ! ) I also like that people can't get hold of me if I turn my phone off. It is very liberating. It is also quite satisfying to know you are making...

    Thanks for the help. I understand the limitation of infra red, but it has worked fine up to now for what I need. The only drawback is it is a one shot option - or one string of shots (you can set it for 5 consecutive, motordrive, shots), then have to go back and reset it to do another one...

    I need to be able to set the camera up and fire it from my position some distance away - no wires and no physical connection to it. Think, like up a mast of a yacht with me on the deck....that kind of thing. Or set up one side of a river, and me in the water fishing....timer will be used, but...

    Fuji Showcase 50-140

    Some bokeh playing with the 50-140 handheld. Nice smooth circles of confusion, mostly cider induced. This is what the above lights were on. It is our bird table with some fairy lights strung over it for the Christmas festivities. All shot from the same position. Just altered the aperture...

    Fuji More confusion, not circular ones!

    I phone Fuji UK this afternoon and spoke to the training manager..... he couldn't fathom it either. I have to take it in for someone to have a play with that knows their way around the Fujis.... I'll report back. My fear is, I am going to have it set up for manual focussing and it'll muck up...

    Fuji More confusion, not circular ones!

    I am struggling with the XT-2. I know you have all helped greatly already and without it I tink I would have taken the camera back. It is so complicated, yet by the dials on top I thought it was going to be much simpler. Anyway, I don't know what I have done, but I cannot get either lens to...

    I bought a little button that fires the remote setting on my Nikon P7800 compact. It works from a good 20 feet away, provided the sunlight is not straight at it. I think it is infra red. Cost £2.99 and works brilliantly, I can set the release for 10 seconds, push the tit and it starts the...

    Being something of a hi tech reject, there is no way I am using my phone to work the camera, how clumsy is that? Is there a remote release available that anyone knows of please? I can't find anything. When I say remote release NO WIRES, so not one of those intervalometer things. Thanks.

    Any pictures available with the 1.4? I have the 2.8 zoom myself, because I just have the two lens system. 16-55 and 50-140 and only the one body. Light and compact.

    Fuji Focus Tracking

    What you are describing is basically the old pre-focus technique. Years ago, we used this with manual lenses (I am talking 1980s now). That technique was further refined to increase the panning blurr by follow focussing DURING the exposure. Stood or kneeling for the World Superbikes on the...

    Blimey, that is complicated. I can't find half the things he was going through to do the same as him! I don't know my camera well enough yet. I am still looking at the handbook to tell me where things live. The settings he had I will try to replicate, it might take me some time - he did say it...

    I wish I could work out how to set up the XT2 (with latest upgrade of internal system gubbins) and 50-140..... my action shots with this setup are PANTS, or lucky. I have spent months trying to understand how to set it up - took me 2 days with D4s to be getting 90% hit rate at slow shutter...

    Fuji Showcase 50-140

    Thanks for the video by Fuji Boys, but that just showed the same thing as I have used, perhaps it is the boats motion that the Fuji can't cope with as well as the Nikon - nikon VR has both axis movement, or single plane movement, you choose according to the situation. For running fast alongside...

    Having used Nikon for so many years I am still trying to get to terms with the XT2and lenses. These the D4s would have nailed with the 70-200 (same lens equivalent) at this shutter speed. I am not sure what I did wrong, the shutter was well in range for the focal length and I have only been...

    Not found the film modes yet though - the Acros one would be good. Do you have to shoot in RAW and then turn it into Acros, or can you shoot straight to Acros? I don't understand quite what the manual says.
