    Expired Want to Buy: Seeking Import tax info | Location: USA | Ships: USA

    I don't know the exact rules, but just wanted to say I've bought 2-3 used items from Australian sellers in the past, and never had to pay any sort of tax or fee. I am pretty certain if the seller just indicates that the goods are used, you won't have to pay anything. 1 of my purchases was...

    Micro 4/3 Panasonic GX80 (GX85) Is it the GF1 we always wanted?

    This looks really great to me- it combines the all the features of the G7 with the styling of the GX7, and adds 5-axis IBIS to boot! This will be fantastic for video, and the filterless sensor should be great as well.

    Fuji Livin' the Low-Fi Life

    This is how I bought mine. I actually emailed the seller and told them I only wanted the teleconverter, and they significantly reduced the shipping cost for me.

    Fuji Livin' the Low-Fi Life

    The X10 is a GREAT camera, the lens is sharp and 6MP has excellent dynamic range- plus it just feels great to hold and use. The only reason I still don't own one is I needed telephoto and better video, so now have another low-fi camera- Nikon V1. Either is capable of very nice 8 x 10's, which...

    Fuji AF issue or normal? -X-E1

    The GM1 is much better at picking up even a smallest bit of contrast to focus on. That being said, I don't think there's necessarily a right or wrong answer to what the camera should do when there's nothing to focus on. Had you been pointing your camera at a totally unmarked wall 5 feet away...

    Fuji Experiences with Fuji XA-1/XM-1 vs Nex

    The Samsung + pancake seems like a great choice- especially at that price! I think the X-M1 or X-A1 would have been fine with the Fuji pancake, given that you don't need/want an EVF. I think it would have given you a similar shooting experience to the Samsung. I guess the NX300 does have phase...

    Fuji Using an XM1 or XA1 for legacy glass

    Have you ever used one of those rear screen magnifiers/giant eyecups? They look kinda goofy, but give a really nice view IMO. Don't know if you might be able to use one of those, as opposed to a regular EVF. If you are rear screen only, I think the X-A1/X-M1 have higher resolution (and slightly...

    Fuji Metal Handgrip/ L-Plate for Fuji X100/X100S- $18.02 Free Shipping (EBay)

    Hard to see any downsides at this price (I am not the seller, I actually just bought one)- http://www.ebay.com/itm/191223747283 The brand is 'Neewer', I've seen 'iShoot' labels before on these but my guess is they're all the same. There are 3 left, so make haste! These are usually $40-50 and up.

    Fuji New to the XF1 - now X30..gone..now X100T..gone. I’m back

    I think it's strength- EXR sensor (dynamic range)- is also its downfall- EXR sensor (resolution). For the current price, it's a great snapshot camera, easy to use with nice color and easy to preserve highlights. I also like the handling, styling, and manual zoom mechanism.

    Fuji New to the XF1 - now X30..gone..now X100T..gone. I’m back

    It's not horrible, just not as fast and reliable as I would like. It was sometimes a problem for me with moving/action shots. I liked the camera enough that I was willing to work with it, but found the smaller size of the XF1 appealing. I would not have switched though had the XF1 used a...

    Fuji New to the XF1 - now X30..gone..now X100T..gone. I’m back

    I just got one too today, to replace an X10. The only negative of the X10 was autofocus, and the XF1 is better. I also preferred the form factor of the XF1, amazing to me considering it has the same EXR sensor with great dynamic range (I learned to leave the X10 in 6 MP/DR400 by default.) I...

    Fuji XM1 user notes, including as compared to the EOS-M

    Thanks for the suggestion- unfortunately those are out of my budget right now! ;) But the Fuji family as a whole does seem to be getting faster, and these improvements will gradually trickle down (just like Olympus and it's first couple of M43 generations...) Right now, M43 is fast enough...

    Fuji XM1 user notes, including as compared to the EOS-M

    Even though the sample photos are gone, this is by far the best, most comprehensive Fuji X-M1 vs. Canon EOS-M shootout on the internet! I love the Fuji cameras, but don't love the slow AF. If a Fuji + 35mm f/1.4 combo focused as fast as a recent MU43 body + PL 25mm, it would be game over for...

    Fuji On my Blog: My Review of the Fuji X-System

    That's exactly what I needed to know, thanks! I had read conflicting reports on this, some said the X-M1 and X-A1 were faster at AF, but perhaps they weren't testing with the same lens as on the older bodies.

    Fuji X-Pro1 and low-light shooting

    Yes, you can white balance for what's more important. You can also selective fix the other areas on your computer, it would be best to shoot RAW for that, so the wrong color doesn't get baked into the JPEG.

    Fuji X-Pro1 and low-light shooting

    There are 2 different lighting sources in the first image, with different white balance for each. So it's basically impossible for the camera to get both right.

    Sony Well.... my membership in the RX1R owners group didn't last long. :-/

    Evaluation of JPEG's is ultimately a very subjective thing. A lot depends on your tolerance for noise reduction, which I personally have little. I absolutely love Fuji JPEG's, they are perfect to my taste with minimal sharpening and NR artifacts. Sony JPEG's I find tolerable, I don't understand...

    Fuji Can anyone refute that Fuji inflates its ISO numbers?

    I think Amin's test is the best so far, as it is a side by side comparison with 3 popular camera models with a varied subject with different colors, etc. and compared both RAW and JPEG's. So it seems to me that the general conclusion to be drawn is that the Fuji somewhat overstates ISO but not...

    Fuji Sigma glass for Fuji X mount

    They may as well knock out the 19mm and 30mm for Fuji, it wouldn't take too much development effort. I imagine the issue is agreeing to licensing terms with Fuji. Now that there are budget Fuji bodies though, perhaps this will have a greater chance of happening. It really shouldn't be an...

    Fuji X-A1 Image Quality better than X-M1 (and X-E1 and X-PRO1)?

    Micro 4/3 Olympus PEN E-P3 Retro OVF (or a slow Sunday afternoon...)

    Bumping an old thread, I just discovered that the tele frameline is actually a very good match for the Oly 45mm f/1.8! (I think it's a closer match than the 20mm is to the wide framelines.)

    noisy or clean (which do you prefer?)

    What I don't like is bad/excessive noise reduction that further reduces image detail. If the original captured image data is somewhat noisy, I will take that any day of the week, over smeary in-camera noise reduction. Color noise is sort of a different issue, I don't know anyone who likes that...

    Fuji Old manual focus primes

    35mm and 50mm lenses, or is that the equivalent FOV you want? Fast 50's with good bokeh won't be hard to find for cheap on most all mounts, of course you are then looking at 75mm equivalent FOV. Fast 35mm's will be more expensive, but most mounts seem to have something in the range of 35mm f/2...

    Fuji X100 at f/2 – unusable indeed

    In my experience only macro is 'unsharp' to me at f/2. I understand that the lens is sharper at f/2.8, but f/2 looks great to me. It doesn't get hazy or dreamy at f/2 at non-macro distances, and overall IQ is great.

    You'll find fans of all of the various old SLR mounts.

I ended up with some Minolta lenses and an adapter for my...

    Really Random Shootout - Fuji 18-55mm f/2.8-4 and Fuji X-E1 vs Zeiss ZM 35mm f/2.0 Biogon and Leica

    MY eyes are bleeding from the M9 moire...just kidding. The Oly looks fine, a lot of color fringing though off-center. Amin, didn't you do a kit zoom test at some point in the past? It would have been nice to compare the Fuji zoom to those.
