    Fuji Charlene Winfred and her journey with the 35mm 1.4

    The 35 1.4 is my favorite Fuji lens. I had the f2 version for a while, but I always preferred the look of the 1.4. I have a bunch of lenses, prime and zoom, all are good, but the 35 gets the most use. If I could only keep one, the 35 1.4 would be it.

    What's your oldest "living" digital camera?

    Nikon D200 from 2007. Still works great, but I don't get it out very often.

    Canon Ah, the joys of a pocket camera!

    Beautiful, I still carry a G11 with me when I don't want to lug my Fuji gear. I've also spent some money with AofA, been an airgunner since the 70's. Small world, isn't it?

    Fuji X-H1 further musings

    I picked up a new X-H1 with battery grip during the recent sale. I still have a couple of X-T1s, I'll probably sell the black body and keep the silver one as a back up body. I like to use primes, including a large collection of legacy lenses. The IBIS works really well with these lenses...

    minor theft

    I have a doorbell security camera. I've never lost a package, but I did see footage of a girl walking up on our porch, looking straight at the doorbell, covering her face, and leaving. My wife had several packages delivered that day, without an obvious security device visible, I doubt that she...

    Kamlan 50mm f1.1 APS-C lens (on Massdrop)

    The exif data is wrong, but the 35mm 1.4 was on the camera right before the Kamlan. Taken before Christmas last year. I don't use it much, but I don't plan to sell it. It's sharp enough in the middle of the frame wide open, but it does improve when stopped down. It works well for portraits.

    Fuji Nikkor on Fujifilm X-T1

    Fuji Nikkor on Fujifilm X-T1

    I picked up a Nikon FM with a Nikkor 50mm 1.4 and a gorgeous Soligor 70-210 3.5 for $45 on the local FB Marketplace page. It really looks good on the Fuji. I took a few handheld shots in the garden to see how this combo performs. I'm looking forward to having some quality time...

    Fuji Pentax Super Takumar 50mm f1.4 on X-T1

    I've been looking for this lens on ebay for a while now, it's hard to find a nice copy under $100. I saw one the other day, attached to a nice Pentax Spotmatic with a $30 buy it now price. The seller knew nothing about cameras, but the pictures looked good, so I took a chance. It showed up...

    Fuji Pentax Super Takumar 50mm f1.4 on X-T1

    I picked this lens up yesterday for $30, I haven't had a lot of time to play with it, but I think I'm going to like it. Quick shots, taken with a monopod in low light to demonstrate DOF. I'll have to get used to focusing this lens, these old eyes don't work as well as they did 40 years...

    First roll of Fujifilm ACROS 100

    I shot a roll through my Mamiya 645 with 80mm f1.9 lens. I bought five rolls, the other four are in the freezer. Pictures taken at the Belle Isle Conservatory in Detroit. The 80mm f1.9 has a razor thin depth of field at this distance, nice lens, but my 80mm f2.8 is sharper.

    Fuji Let's Talk 18mm f2.0

    I picked my 18 f2 up used for $200, in great shape. I love it, it stays on one of my X-T1 bodies all the time. I like the close focus distance of 7 inches, makes the lens a lot more versatile. It may not be Fuji's sharpest lens, but it's sharper than my Canon 28mm f2.8, especially in the...

    Greeting Camerads!

    I have been carrying a camera since high school, but got serious about photography in college where I worked at a modeling agency for a couple of years(1976-77). I have used Fuji, Canon, Minolta, and Olympus film systems over the years. I still have a Canon 7D, but I use Fujifilm almost...

    Fuji Long time Fuji user

    I've been using Fuji cameras for a long time. I bought the ST705 new in 1977, and the AX-5 in 1982 when my son was born. Fuji built excellent lenses back then, too. Both cameras still work well, I usually run a roll or two of film through each one once a year.

    Fuji New to me 50mm f2.0 - Very Nice!

    I've been into airguns since I was a teenager, a long time ago. There was always a Beeman, Air Rifle Headquarters, or Great Lakes Airgun catalog close at hand. I sold some guns a while ago, but I still have 30+. My current favorites are an FWB300s, and an HW55MM, oldies fro sure, but very...

    Fuji 2018 Detroit Auoto Show

    There were two Mustangs used, one for the chase scenes, and another for the beauty shots. The car in the pictures is the Beauty shot car. The other car was really beat up during filming and was supposed to be scrapped.

    Fuji 2018 Detroit Auoto Show

    Fuji Tamron making lenses in Fuji X mount and Sony E mount?

    I bought my first Tamron lens in 1977, a 135 f2.8 adaptall in Fuji ST mount. I still have it and use it, works like a champ. I've used many Tamron zooms over the years, mostly from the SP line, my favorites are the 70-210 f3.5 and 35-80 f2.8-3.8. I used a 35-105 f2.8 Tamron SP on my Maxxum 9000...

    Fuji 35mm - 1.4 or 2?

    I have both, not much difference optically, especially in the middle apertures, and the f2 does focus faster and is weather resistant. The f2 is the logical choice, but my f1.4 is always in the camera bag, the f2 gets used if the weather is iffy. The f1.4 is probably the sharpest lens I have...

    Fuji When shooting vertically...

    I shoot overhand, too. It makes more sense to rotate the camera clockwise, puts the flash on top, but it feels awkward.

    Fuji I've been researching Fuji cameras for awhile and I want one, need advice

    I took this picture of the moon with a Vivitar Series 1 600mm Solid Cat on an X-Pro1 body. The screen was not only easy to see, it approximates exposure as well. The only problem I had that night was wind, and a not so steady tripod.

    Mike, I kind of surprised her. The booth owner loved my camera, thought it was an old film rangefinder. I just fired this shot to prove it was digital. It has become one of my favorite pictures.
