    Fuji Fujifilm X-H1 FW 1.01 released

    It should take care of various freezing issues (not just the one case that is mentioned) and a few other things. Let's see what people say about it. Personally, I haven't had a single freeze in the 2 weeks that I have been testing 1.01.

    Fuji X-H1 annoying feature!

    So you really believe that Fujifilm implements this annoying mandatory energy saving feature fully knowing that it doesn't save any meaningful amount of energy (aka it's virtually useless)? Given that the live view (and hence its frame rate) is the major source of energy consumption in any...

    Fuji X-H1 annoying feature!

    Of course it means greater battery drain. The higher frame rate of the LCD and EVF drains the battery. Hence it's only available in Boost mode. This "bug" is standard in the X-T2 since firmware 1.00. So either switch on Boost mode for fast frame rates or "enjoy" the mandatory battery saving...

    Fuji X-H1 annoying feature!

    We already know how to turn it off. Enable Boost mode.

    Fuji X-H1 annoying feature!

    I am not aware of any configuration that wouldn't allow Boost mode on the T2 and H1. So please back up your claim with an example.

    Fuji X-H1 annoying feature!

    Boost Mode should always be available. There's even a hardware switch on the Booster Grip for it.

    Fuji X-H1 annoying feature!

    Same "feature" as in the X-T2 and X-Pro2. But in the X-Pro2 we can turn it off. Only Boost mode cancels the power save mode in the T2 and H1. Even more annoying in the H1: EVF-only is always in power-save mode when the signal is output via an HDMI cable. Fuji says it is a feature. Cant's turn it...

    Fuji New zoom lens 15-45

    The lens should work with all X-Mount cameras. It's designed as a kit lens for the new A series models, though, so few people will buy it separately. A3 and A10 are getting firmware updates to support the selfie zoom option via the command dial.

    Fuji Incredible India

    And in case the family of the maharaja of Jodphur unexpectedly invites you to attend a polo match, also bring an X-T2 with a handy 55-200mm zoom, because the GFX won't really catch the action from the bleachers. ;) XT2C0168 by Rico Pfirstinger, auf Flickr XT2C0262 by Rico Pfirstinger, auf...

    Fuji Incredible India

    In order to get a usable EVF, we keep the ISO 100 exposure (aperture & shutter speed), but change ISO to 400 and DR to 400%. This leaves the RAW exposure unchanged, but provides a live view image that is 2 stops brighter. Never forget that ISO 100 / DR100% and ISO 400 / DR400% are exactly the...

    Shooting panoramas is fun with the GFX. I use a Kirkland L-bracket to mount the camera upright on a tripod, then take a series of shots. In Lightroom, I merge the RAW files to a Panorama-DNG with a size of typically 300-400 MP. After processing this DNG, I export JPEGs with a height of 4000...
