    On the fast track

    I like it too but I would lose the vignette, it detracts rather than adds to the overall image. Geoff

    Fuji X-T1 Delivery dates

    Nothing in Oz. We very rarely see discounts on Fuji. We certainly don't have the fantastic lens deals the US are seeing now or previously with the lens/body deals. I guess it's because of a much smaller market. Geoff

    Fuji Just got my 23mm F 1.4 lens

    Picked mine up yesterday. The build quality is the usual high standard expected from the Fuji stable but then I would not expect anything less. I have not had much chance to play but here a few from my initial foray. I know I am going to enjoy this lens A LOT!

    Fuji New book

    I'm located in Oz, bought the PDF version via the O'Reilly website yesterday. Read about 1/3 so fa,r all good and yes I have picked up a few useful tips, well worth the small investment.

    Fuji Macro Button

    OK, I just done a very quick and unscientific test with the 14, 35 and 60 primes first focusing in normal mode then without moving camera position, switching to macro mode and refocusing and then moving camera forwards a few mm and then refocusing - it won't! The macro button indeed seems to...

    Fuji Macro Button

    According to the specs found on the Fuji website a closer focusing distance is achieved with the 'macro' setting on the body enabled. i.e. 14mm - Normal Focus = 0.6m (60cm), Macro = 28cm 18mm - Normal Focus = 0.8m (80cm), Macro = 18cm 23mm - Normal Focus = 0.6m (60cm), Macro = 28cm 35mm...

    Fuji Fujinon 14mm f/2.8 Close Focus at f/16

    When you say " as close as I can get to it" is that physically or as close as it will focus? With any of the Fuji primes you can use the macro setting on the body getting you a little closer. I have shot a macro of a small beetle with the XF14.

    Fuji Fujinon XF 23mm F1.4 R

    I called the above retailer today to check on price.....they confirmed that Fuji had not released pricing as yet for AU, however the pre order price has since been reduced to AU$1049.......looking better with a step in the right direction but I feel it is still too high especially when compared...

    Fuji Fujinon XF 23mm F1.4 R

    I intend to get one of these, but here in Oz my retailer of choice has it listed for pre-order at AU$1499!!!!! Fujifilm Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens - Fuji Aust Warranty I was expecting a similar price to the XF14 and I paid AU$845 for that. I will be getting a X100S for AU$1289 instead if...

    Fuji 55-200 - help me decide

    I don't use long zooms that often either, but I wanted something that would give me the reach when needed. The 55-200 is a slow lens but a great lens, no regrets from me. Many people say it is a huge lens but compared to my now sold Nikon 70-200/2.8 it is tiny and therefore handling is not an...

    North Essex villages are so picturesque, Finchingfield is probably my favourite with Thaxted being a close second place.

    Fuji Hi From Essex UK

    The land where the Tile Kiln Estate is built was a playground of mine in my childhood. I can remember scrumping apples from the orchard which was once there and collecting newts (now rare) from a pond. I have friends that now live on Tile kiln (Dove Lane).

    Fuji Hi From Essex UK

    My parents still live in Chelmsford after moving there 50 years ago (Moulsham Lodge Est); I went to Moulsham School. I am heading 'home' in December for a holiday and to catch up with the folks.

    Fuji Hi From Essex UK

    Hi and welcome from another Essex man. Will be great to see some photos of Essex, I was born in Epping, but lived in Chelmsford and Writtle well into adult life but for the past 10 years I have been in Oz. I too dumped the Nikon FF for the Fuji and have no regrets.

    Fuji Alternative grip for X-E1

    The Fuji grip, although a pain because of the inability to access the battery/card chamber without removing it, is more ergonomic and looks like it is a part of the camera. This variant looks like it is an addition to it. I would be wary of the tripod screw mount being of aluminium. A stainless...

    Animals Show Birds

    I would have been approx 10m (30ft) from this one as it was in a high branch. Can get pretty close (1-2m (3-6ft)) on occasions as they are quite tame. Even our dogs don't scare them away, in fact the Kookies can taunt the dogs!

    Animals The Animal Kingdom: wild or domestic!

    The saying 'never work with children or animals' came to mind when doing this shoot. A workmates 13 week old kitten would not sit still for longer than 1/2 a second! Despite this I did manage a few keepers, this being one of them. X-E1 and 35/1.4

    Hi Pete I hope you are not expecting sunshine on the Gold Coast......its fairly damp up here too. Lots of rain and high tides have eroded the beaches, many have been closed! I can recommend a visit to the observation deck of the Q1 tower if the weather clears, for 360 deg views from the ocean...

    Fuji A return of sorts....G'day from Oz

    Also from Oz. I have not been very active as yet.......busy sadly. I hope to rectify that though, I just bought myself a birthday (50th) present on Monday - both the 35/1.4 and 14/2.8

    Hi Peter, love your work and processing. The subjects you post are also of great interest to me. I was born in Epping and lived in Chelmsford and Writtle for around 35 years so can relate to the areas you travel to. It's great to see images of 'home' as I now live in Oz (will be returning to UK...

    Fuji 18-55 with close up filters?

    Anyone tried using the kit zoom with a close up filter or combination of filters and care to share their experiences? I am aware of single element filters, double element filters etc; and in various strengths, +1,+2, +4 etc; but never used them. With my Nikon gear I have a dedicated macro lens...

    A photographic triptych is a group of three photographs usually arranged with a plain border between them. The work may consist of separate images that are variants on a theme or that tell a story, or may be one larger image split into three. Here is a recent one of mine titled "3 'S' Ritual"...

    Fuji Your favorite X travel gear

    I have the XE1. Both it and the XP1 will walk all over the D200 - I have a D300 and D700 and the XE1 at minimum equals the D300 but generally surpasses it. The XE1 even gives the D700 a run for it's money in many respects.
