    No cup of tea @Mike G but the TC did a good job on this one (slightly cropped)

    Film Showcase Lomography Orca 100 (110 format)

    I just researched the Pentax, not something I'd ever come across before. All of my experience with 110 was Kodak Ektras etc. (working in my father's photographic shop) so I'm amazed that there is SLRs in that format. Looks like a pretty neat piece of kit.

    Film Showcase Lomography Orca 100 (110 format)

    Those results look better than anything I remember people getting from 110 back in the day Martin. The misty trees and winding road look pretty good.

    Yeah @Bobby Tingle but I am disappointed - considering how much it cost, I was expecting this lens to take the pictures for me! 😀

    Fuji First Impressions of X-T3 (coming from X-T1)

    I think that moving between the X-E2 and X-T1 was harder than moving between the X-T3 and X-T1 so it wasn't all bad and I got pretty good at jumping between them.

    Fuji Showcase Fujinon 100-400mm WR samples

    This lens is proving pretty flexible. I need to remember to flick the focus limiting switch when going from BIF to close up, but I work it out pretty quick.

    It's not even a complete prototype - no lens mount or front filter ring. They are selling it for parts.

    Fuji First Impressions of X-T3 (coming from X-T1)

    Now that I have a 100-400, today is the first day when I felt that that I really needed to have two cameras with me. So, I mounted the 100-400 on the X-T3 and stuck the 16/1.4 onto the X-T1. I also had the 56/1.2 with me just in case. The two cameras are sufficiently different to make it quite...

    Fuji Showcase Fujinon 100-400mm WR samples

    Had a morning at Hunstanton Old Beach this morning with some decent light, so I had an opportunity to point my 100-400 at some seabirds. I struggled to get any decent results until I started to think about the flight patterns of the birds so I could hold the bird better in the EVF.

    Fuji (Sigh) Another lens purchase on the horizon

    So, 100-400 and TC1.4 are now here. I went out with it yesterday and our local buzzard put on a display for me. This is at 400mm (I am not ready to try the TC yet) and is uncropped. This is a 100% crop... I was shooting bursts using CH at 8.0fps but my keeper rate was at 0% - literally...

    Fuji (Sigh) Another lens purchase on the horizon

    I made the mistake of wandering into the electrical store in Heathrow last week, assuming that they wouldn't have anything interesting. Unfortunately, they had a 100-400... It was big and heavy but not as much as I thought it would be. The OIS works really well and I want to start getting...

    Why I would suck as a commercial photographer

    I am someone else here who doesn't do this for work, and I never will - I take pictures for me and I enjoy doing it. I strive to get the best possible pictures that I can, but ultimately it doesn't matter if I don't get a picture. @Tilman Paulin that is an amazing picture - well done.

    Fuji Showcase 90mm F2

    Today I went for a walk around the Peak District (Derbyshire, UK) with just the 90/2 and 16/1.4. I nearly took the 50-230 as well but I doubt that I would have used it. Lambs are always photogenic... We have a stylised painting of this ridge (Mam Tor) on our kitchen wall, I was keen to try to...

    I don't want to teach grandma to suck eggs but .....

    Watched all three of the videos, the part that gelled for me was the warm up phase - I can relate to that and will often take a number of pictures before I get my "eye in". His specific example was more about light than anything else, and I agree that "looking back" sometimes shows better...

    Fuji Showcase XC 50-230 Samples

    A few from earlier today, this lens is back to being a worthy member of the team (now that I have tamed the AF-C settings in the X-T3). This is uncropped and is one of the better 'action' pictures I've managed to get of our greyhound (not sure if my technique has improved, or if it is because...

    I like your results here. There is a lot to be said for having little or no choice when out and about - forces you to work harder but I think that the results are often better for it.

    Fuji Struggling with the 50-230

    So, I think I got to the bottom of this. 1. Release priority was set for AF-C :speechless: 2. Using single AF point greatly improves things at the scale I have been working These four show that static/slow moving things aren't a problem. This one is uncropped. This proves that the lens is...

    Fuji Struggling with the 50-230

    Just found this one from my archive, taken back in July 2017. This is 1/250, f7.1 @230mm - so OIS would have been working for me here. Also, this would have been taken in AF-S with single point focus I think (and on the X-T1, not X-T3). So, the lens certainly was capable of producing decent...

    Fuji Struggling with the 50-230

    Not just moving things, some of the non-moving are soft too, which makes me wonder if the 5x5 focus grid is the problem. Good point, I will take a look at some charts. Wide open for that lens at 230mm is f6.7 and iirc it is considered soft wide open - by my reckoning f9 is only about one stop...

    Fuji Struggling with the 50-230

    You can turn the OIS off in the menu - but I didn't for these pics. I have read that OIS could be a cause of blurriness so I wondered about turning it off. Of course, being able to easily switch OIS on and off is one of the benefits of the 55-200 over the 50-230 (along with the aperture control...

    Fuji Struggling with the 50-230

    I've been trying my hand at wildlife for the past few days. My only decently long lens (past 90) is the 50-230 and I tried it out yesterday on some local birds. I was using single drive mode and AFC with a 5x5 zone and found it a struggle to get anything sharp. These are the best three from the...

    More landscape action for the 90... It was a mix of rain and sun today, this often leads to great clouds like these. The castle here is Belvoir (pronounced 'beaver') Castle - it is the highest point for miles. I just loved what the clouds did here. This is using Velvia sim in Capture One...
