    Fuji Showcase When you're on a cruise and miss photographing birds...

    Our ship was turned away from Cuba by the U.S. Government, so we spent a couple of days in The Bahamas. The zoo and gardens was over booked, so we walked the streets. This is how I knew I missed photographing birds. Even the pigeons started to look good.

    Fuji Meike MK-F-AF3 Auto Focus Extension Tube Set - First Images

    So, I saw these for $25 USD on Amazon and thought, why not. A 10mm and a 16mm tube and they are stack-able. AF works with both stacked and OIS still functions on lenses that have it. I'll be doing a full review later, but I'm thinking I will be getting my $25 worth out of these. Got these 3...

    Stuff on sensor that simply will not come off

    Greetings, folks . . . I have an issue cleaning an X-E2 sensor (well, the filter over the sensor, of course). There are some dust spots that nothing I've tried will remove. I've been through a 12-pack of sensor swabs and wet cleaning -- no joy. I hate to ship the camera to have it cleaned, in...

    Fuji Don't need 100MP?

    For those of you who don't need that 100MP sensor in the Fuji GFX 100, here's the GFX 50S with the battery grip. I really like how the shutter release can't even make it over to the end of the camera. Yet, knowing Fuji, it probably feels great in the hands.

    Fuji (Sigh) Another lens purchase on the horizon

    I made the mistake of wandering into the electrical store in Heathrow last week, assuming that they wouldn't have anything interesting. Unfortunately, they had a 100-400... It was big and heavy but not as much as I thought it would be. The OIS works really well and I want to start getting...

    Fuji Problem with my XH1

    I again had a problem with the XH1 going into video mode and being unable to get back to stills. As far as I can tell, this should be completely controlled by the dial under the iso dial on the left side of the camera. Changing that dial does not change the mode. I assume this means the...

    Infrared Gear The Meike 25mm f1.8 and infrared

    The Meike 25mm f1.8 arrived about an hour ago, and the first thing was to test it to see how well it did infrared photography. The answer is not perfectly but well enough to be entirely usable. The short version: it's just fine in infrared color up to f5.6, and in black-and-white up to f8 and...

    Infrared Gear 18-135 Fujinon and infrared

    The 18-135mm Fuji zoom is reputed to be an excellent lens for shooting infrared. Indeed, that's the reason I purchased one. Many Fuji lenses suffer from fairly bad to truly awful "hotspots" that render them unusable in infrared photography, which is too bad, because Fuji bodies are readily...

    Greetings, everybody . . . I shoot a lot of infrared with my Kolari-converted X-E2 (720nm native, but I use an 850nm filter much of the time). And most of my Fuji lenses have from annoying to unbearable hotspots. Even the 18-135, which I got specifically for IR because it was said to be...

    Fuji Fuji 14 2.8 vs 10-24 4.0

    So, I have the X70 which is my current WA lens. I’m considering the two lenses mentioned in the title. The 14 is small and would go well on the XE3. The 10-24 is more versatile but larger and heavier. The OIS would be nice but I would probably use it on the XH1. Image quality seems good on...

It was much quicker than reconfiguring the camera when I wanted to change into, say flash, mode. Is there any way to...

    Fuji Maybe another XT1?

    Thinking about this. I have the Xt3 and will see what the upgrade brings in April but I keep going back to the very clean XT1 files and thinking, wow these look better. The Xt3 does bring better autofocus, but it gets a little noisey if you lean on it.
