    Fuji Recent Thoughts on the XE3

    if I had to guess, I'd say 240 seconds. Here's what some purport to be the first photograph containing a human. It's estimated to be a ten minute exposure. https://petapixel.com/2010/10/27/first-ever-photograph-of-a-human-being/

    A self-portrait, if you will.

    The Typ240 is a superzoom ;)

    Dogs (part II)

    Charlie is 4 weeks past a knee surgery. Trying to keep a dog from running AND jumping is a lot of work. He gets sedatives pretty regularly, but he still gets fired up when Ruby barks or someone comes to the door. So we have a play pen set up for him in the living room. It gives him some room to...

    Kingsbridge 800 (Grebeman does the streets, in colour, never!)

    I know you spend a lot of time on your mono conversions. Do you pay equal attention to your color processing? Or are you more easily satisfied with the color results?

    Fuji FujiFilm X-A7 Mirrorless Camera with Lens Kit

    I miss awesome old refrigerator colors. I remember the one from my youth was Harvest Gold.....then in the early 80s, that original 1958 just wasn't worth fixing any more and we got a new dark brown one. Not too long after than, the only options became white or black....and then the stainless...

    I think the way they are used in the Leica and Fuji examples is excellent. I think if there were similar showcase threads for the camera makers, people would start filling them up with images. And I think I just voted for the wrong option. What I describe sounds like I should have selected...

    I don't mean to muddle the waters, but I'm just thinking about all the great Fuji glass you could buy with that Sony money. I'll just sit back and read the pro pixel peepers informed reasoning of one over the other. :popcorm2:

    Fuji Recent Thoughts on the XE3

    Hey Bobby, if you get a chance, can you take a photo of the camera in hand. For some reason, the space between the grip and the lenses looks kinda tight. I think the only way I could get with a camera that small is adding the grip. I do not like small cameras.

    Fuji Oh no, I didn't!

    that is a sea change. A completely different shooting experience. The gear is great....without doubt. Now take some time and grow accustomed to your new way of seeing and shooting. I look forward to hearing about the transition. There will surely be some hiccups along the way. But in the end...

    well, you're a better man than I. Things last on my to-do list for about 3 months. If they haven't been done by then, I move it over to the "Forget It" list...cause it ain't gettin' done. It helps to keep the To Do list to a manageable size, as well.

    Fuji X-E1 sensor vs the rest

    what have I told you about hanging out with those pixel peepers? Honestly, I can't tell a difference between any sensors on any camera from the last 5 years....maybe once you're shooting at ISO6400....I may notice a difference. But I'm probably as crazy a NON-pixel peeper as you will ever find.

    Bill, is your climate so mild all year that no insulation is used? It looks like they are going to put in the ceiling and there is no insulation beneath the roof. I would think that lets a lot of heat in.

    You should go for it.....before I do. With the volume of used gear they handle, I think they just rate stuff on visual condition, which usually tells 95% of the camera's story. And if something doesn't work right, they'll pay you to ship it back. The probably rightly surmise that to pay...

    It's a shame that most people only know Thomas Dolby from his irritating novelty song "She Blinded Me (with Science)". I loved his album "The Flat Earth" in high school. The production values sound quite dated now, but give it a spin.

    I suppose you're right, but I also think going to that goofy cloudbased subscription model lost them PLENTY of customers. I was one of them. Seems like when you have close to 100% marketshare, you should actively make sure it stays that way.
