    Fuji When to switch on the IOS in the XF18-55

    It's interesting that when I first got the 18-55 a few years back I found the IOS made images less sharp so I never turned it on, however the latest firmware has improved the IOS to the point that I leave it on all the time (I don't use a tripod very often).

    Fuji Viewing with Adapted Lenses

    It's worth noting that with lens of longer focal length which would produce a small view frame in the OVF you can enlarge the frame by holding the front VF lever for a second rather than the quick flick to change to EVF.

    Fuji Viewing with Adapted Lenses

    You can use the OVF for framing (set lens focal length in the menu) but to focus you need the EVF to see the peaking highlights. It works like this; frame scene using OVF, press thumb wheel to bring up a magnified EVF, adjust focus until you see the blinkies, press thumb wheel to get back to...

    Leica Budapest

    Nice picture. The colours look great with this scene. The frame looks similar to one found in Snapseed (a Google product). Snapseed is free and is available on iOS and Android. There was an earlier version that ran on Mac but is no longer supported. Snapseed was developed by Nik software and...

    Leica Jupiter 8 with 18 aperture blades?!

    I have a 1956 Jupiter-8 which has 9 blades and the focussing tab. I had a quick look in Pricelle's - The Authentic Guide to Russian and Soviets cameras but couldn't find an obvious mention of an 18 blade version of the J-8. The only mention I could find on the net referred to a 16 blade...

    Nice set, beautiful part of the world. Your narrow road looks wider than many of our country roads in the UK. They can get a bit scary when you encounter the locals racing towards you. :eek:

    Pete, Have you considered going to the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Blastocystis is not uncommon in the UK and the jury is out on its pathogenicity. In my experience multiple parasite infestation is common so it would be worth investigations for other organisms. I hope you...

    This flew over my house a few minutes ago!

    I was watching a documentary just yesterday about a Tiger Moth being renovated. It was said that the TM was designed to be put in a garage after the wings were folded and then towed to the airfield behind a car. There aren't many still flying so you were lucky to see this lovely example.

    A new camera is always a challenge especially if the manufacturer is new to you, those of us with other Fujis have a head start. One thing I would advise is to initially leave the camera on the defaults and to go out and take pictures as this will get you familiar with the handling. You can...

    What makes a street photo special?

    Time. Street photographs get better with age especially when they reflect the period during which they were taken. The popularity of "discovered" photographs is partly due to this.
