    Lightroom Classic CC "enhance details" - what does it do??

    I tried it on an X-T3 RAF of my dog. First impressions were that it had LESS detail than the original, but I think that this was a glitch in the comparison view in LR. It took about 5 mins to process and is 120MB (the original RAF is 27MB). Zooming in I didn't see any extra detail, so this...

    Thanks @Bobby Tingle I've had to ditch the 56/1.2 from my pack to lose some weight - it hasn't had a look in on this trip anyway. Here are a couple featuring local residents...

    90/2 is a worthy companion to the 16/1.4. Used it a lot today:

    Fuji 90/2 is here

    Initial impressions: Not as big/heavy as I thought it would be Super sharp (even at f2) Quick Close focus is better than I expected (should have known this from reading the specs) I think that my core kitbag is going to be 16, 90, 56 in that order. I'm struggling to see what other lens I might...

    Fuji Interesting read about the 35mm 1.4

    Interesting. I am assessing lens carry options right now - this article isn't helping :S

    A couple of landscapes, looks like this lens is going to work out really well alongside the others.

    First night with the 90/2, used a little Godox TT350F for this one. I don't think the dog was impressed.

    Here's my favourite, in it's classic branding (the bottles have elephants and stuff on them now, and don't look anywhere as classy as this).

    GAS: Please Share your Latest Acquisitions Big and Small

    Just picked up a Thule Covert rolltop backpack. I wanted something for everyday (so laptop plus camera and a couple of lenses) that also has room for personal stuff. The Thule ticked all the boxes and is a good price. The camera part is a removable case (similar to the Tenba BYOB cases) and...

    Showcase 50-140@140 vs 90mm f2 cropped

    Just re-spotted this one. Thanks for posting this @Bobby Tingle . I want something longer than my 56 and my options are 55-200, 50-140 or 90. I'm ruling the 50-140 out due to size and weight. I already have the 50-230 so don't really want another zoom in that range (though I may swap the 50-230...

    That is a great picture @kyteflyer - it is very evocative (I think that is the correct term).

    Years ago it was Hifi equipment. To my shame we used to encourage someone to buy better kit knowing that we'd be able to buy his old stuff from him cheap.:blush:

    Fuji Using Nikon G lenses on Fuji x

    I have a few cheapo adapters for Nikon lenses. Some only work for lenses with an aperture ring but one supports G lenses, but does not do auto focus. I tried this with my Sigma 30/1.4 and 10-20 but in the end I sold them because I didn't like using them manually, plus the weight and size.

    Your best work vs your favorite work

    Interesting point @Bobby Tingle . I take part in an online photo club and each month we submit one picture for critique and for the others to mark. This month I won with a picture that I considered "okay" but certainly not brilliant, I've seen this on Flickr as well (I got 'explored' a few...

    Fuji So tell me your experience with the 56/1.2XF

    I have the 56/1.2 and I've found it to be a really useful lens. It works great for portraits but it is also pretty handy for landscapes and general photography. I've never been troubled by the focus speed on it (but I do have low expectations since I spent quite a while using old Nikon manual...

    Tides Out.

    This works a lot better for me than the colour version. This version really brings out the texture, patterns and composition.

    Showcase Fuji 56mm f/1.2 R

    My New Years Resolution is to give the 56/1.2 more on camera time (it always loses out to the 16/1.4). This is from Blidworth woods in Nottinghamshire.

    Lone Trees

    Well it is overcast and dull here today, but being the final day of 2018 I felt compelled to go out and try to bag a last picture or two for my 2018 project. This one looks okay, and will reply a more insipid version I got from the same spot a month or two ago.

    Got the determination for a 52 week photo challenge?

    I tried something similar for a monthly challenge a few years ago. I set myself 12 themes for the year, one for each month. Previous years I had been more general. I found it extremely frustrating having to change gears every month, and ultimately did not complete that year's challenge. The one...

    Fuji V2.0 firmware now out for X-T3

    The changes are mainly related to video but they have added a couple of extra display indicators: - Kelvin value for WB when WB set manually - Charging icon when camera is plugged into USB or charging from the grip I will probably look to get this update installed in the next couple of days.

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

    Had a play with the iphone app earlier and whilst connecting it came up with a message saying I could have new FW for the X-T3. Like a loon I clicked yes, and after 5 nail biting minutes it completed and had actually updated the firmware in the camera.
