    Fuji Fuji XF 56mm F1.2 R Pre-Production Samples

    Thanks for some nice examples of how this lens performs, Rico. I've used a 50mm f/1.2 manual focus before and I'm really looking forward to finally having an AF version for low light photography. I preordered on the day it was announced and you've done nothing to change my mind about that :)

    Fuji First image of the X-T1. Thoughts?

    I can't believe it's taken 4 pages of this thread for someone to mention the flip screen! This is THE NUMBER ONE reason I want this camera. I enjoy shooting from the waist, which is hard to do when the screen faces your belly instead of your eyes ;) Furthermore, I hope it is a touchscreen! Have...

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

    Good overview of the X system, John, though I was a bit surprised you didn't mention that most of the XF lenses are metal on the outside (excepting only the pancakes, I believe). Some people really love their metal lenses... Your images were great, as always; I loved the subdued use of coloured...

    Fuji Fuji Announces XF 10-24mm f/4 Zoom Lens

    Never realised what a wideangle junkie you were, John :p For my part, I'm currently happy with the 14mm, but the reason I got it was because the 10-24mm wasn't out and I didn't know when it would be out. So far the 14mm is a great lens (what little I've had time to use it) and I'll be reading...

    Fuji XE-2 recommendations please for remote or manual shutter release cables? (NT)

    2.5mm port user here too. These cabled releases are ubiquitous and cheap; I got one off of eBay years ago and have used it with 3 brands of camera I have owned so far. It's a simple one that just features half-press to AF and lock press for bulb; enough for my simple needs. I think it was $15...

    Fuji Fuji XE-2 auto iso settings

    OK Rico, now you have to explain to us why ISO is treated differently than its siblings, shutter speed or aperture, and hence why their limits are also treated differently. I am reminded of Animal Farm, where all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. Is the X-E2 part of...

    Fuji Fuji XE-2 auto iso settings

    Rico, I am greatly enjoying our useless discussions on this topic :cool: So here are two major bugs I found for you to report to Fuji: Bug Number 1 While indoors in a darkish room, set your camera to a shutter speed of 1/1000 and the lens aperture to A. Now set Auto ISO with a Max...

    Fuji 14mm DOA

    Yeah, why is that? It's not like all of a sudden you would stop wanting DoF info in the EVF.

    Fuji Fuji XE-2 auto iso settings

    I would like the option to exist for me to choose whether the limit is a real limit, or just a suggestion. I would choose for the limit to be hard, but the camera would still fire, of course, it would simply take an underexposed image.

    Fuji Fuji XE-2 auto iso settings

    I can't increase the ISO because I'm at 6400, and I'd happily push the file in post, but the camera blows past my shutter speed limit in order to expose correctly (but with a much slower shutter speed than I want) when I'm shooting in Av + Auto ISO. The only way for me to work around this is to...

    Fuji 14mm DOA

    I'm pretty sure one of the first pages of these lenses' manual alerts you to how the clutch mechanism works (not to mention every single review out there). Do people really return products without RTFM'ing? I'm having a love-hate relationship with the clutch-focus. On the one hand, I love the...

    Fuji Fuji XE-2 auto iso settings

    But you're asking me to accept wrongly exposed results instead. You see, the camera is capable of reaching ISO 25,600 (it does so in JPEG mode), yet if I shoot RAW you are asking me to accept a motion-blurred shot at 1/20s + ISO 6400 instead of the correctly exposed, non-motion-blurred shot I...

    Fuji Why Are the X-E2 Dials So Rigid???? (And Other Complaints)

    That's one option, yes. But I'd rather not have to push a Fn button and not have any type of menu list at all. The ISO number shows up at the bottom of the EVF/LCD display, just have it vary when you turn the rear wheel, like shutter speed and aperture do. I just don't understand why so many...

    Fuji Why Are the X-E2 Dials So Rigid???? (And Other Complaints)

    We're not understanding each other, Rico. I don't want an extra ISO wheel, I want to be able to change ISO with the rear control wheel without the need to press a Fn button first, and without a huge list of available ISOs popping up in the viewfinder. In Av you don't get a list of available...

    Fuji Lenses you have run across with great "character"

    I'd have to say the Pentax 77mm f/1.8 Ltd. It not only renders wonderful images, but it's lovely to hold and handle. Given its compact size and metal construction, it will be quite at home with the native Fuji lenses it now lives with. Yes, it has a pull-out hood. And why yes, it's available...

    Fuji Fuji XE-2 auto iso settings

    John, I both do and don't agree with you, which is why I think there should be a menu option allowing us to choose if we want the override or not, and let me tell you why: ISO 6400! On a few occasions already I've run into shooting the 35mm wide open, hitting ISO 6400, and the camera...

    It's amusing to see the recommendations, as I assume everyone is rooting for their previous (or maybe current) DSLR brand. Allow me to do the same! :D I know you've already purchased one, but this might be useful to others: Look for Pentax-M lenses such as the 50mm f/2 (tiny!): ...or...

    Fuji Why Are the X-E2 Dials So Rigid???? (And Other Complaints)

    Yes. And no! :D What I was complaining about was a) How the menu is accessed (I don't think it should be a menu, just like aperture and shutter speed aren't menus); and b) How large the menu is on the screen such that it blocks my view of the scene I'm shooting. We're not saying completely...

    Fuji Why Are the X-E2 Dials So Rigid???? (And Other Complaints)

    The issue was that you click on the Fn button to bring up the ISO menu, and then you change the ISO, and then you click it again (or half press the shutter release) to close the ISO menu. What I would like to see is being able to press the top Fn button, then change the ISO by spinning the wheel...

    Pentax allows it too (you can assign ISO to one of the two control wheels or the back wheel while pressing an ISO button); and I'm pretty sure I remember the Ricoh GRX allows changing ISO with the rear toggle wheely thing. Anyway, let's hope these requests make their way magically to Fuji HQ...

    Fuji Why Are the X-E2 Dials So Rigid???? (And Other Complaints)

    No need to give any buttons up, this is how it works, for example, on Pentax DSLRs: You can choose in a menu the default behaviour of the 4-way control buttons; one option has the buttons giving you access to Flash, WB, etc, and when you hit the OK button you go into AF Area mode and the arrow...

    Would You Buy This Camera?

    I'd also prefer 40mm, but would probably still buy 50mm. An external OVF with an info overlay would be a nice touch. Just don't charge $250 for it.

    Ricoh Do not know if this good or bad news for the GXR

    I just came across the post I wrote back in November 2009 when the Ricoh GXR was announced. My prediction was that this system would be a flop. Some 17 months later it's still trudging along; though I wouldn't qualify it as a success story, it certainly hasn't flopped. It's nice to be wrong...

    Introduction The Ricoh GXR body and lensors came loaded with firmware v.1.18.
