    Maximum shutter speed

    Does the Fuji H2 really have 1/180.000 second shutter speed? How did Fuji manage that? Or is it a spelling issue? Best, Herman

    Sony New Sony A9iii has a Global Shutter

    Not that I’m dropping $6K on a new camera, but it looks like we have a practical global shutter. 120 fps, 1/80,000 max SS, and flash sync at any speed. I need none of these 😛but it’s interesting to see a new tech becoming real. I wonder how fast and how widely this will percolate through the...

    Micro 4/3 Is my shutter about to give up?

    Over the years I've had a stuck shutter on an EM1 Mki which needed a replacement and at the weekend I'm wondering whether my EM1 Mkii is sending me a warning. The following images were taken within minutes of each other - one that it is a bit of a surprise and the other what I was expecting...

    Advice Wanted Second Curtain shutter and the OMD E-M1X

    Howdy folks. I am running into an issue with the EM1X and the flash releasing at the end of the 'shutter', or more accurately, I don't think that it is. On my (very abused) G85s and GX9, there is the menu field that allows for 1st curtain and 2nd curtain shutter release. According to the manual...

    Micro 4/3 Eventual shutter failure on EM5

    I understand the first generation EM5 has an issue where the mechanical shutter gets stuck after a certain number of actuations. I contacted Olympus to ask about the cost for repair, and they no longer support this model and is therefore unrepairable. Various sources say the shutter can get...

    Fuji X-T3 shutter issue

    I get an awful gradient cast on some of my photos. I've had it now a dozen times or so when I shoot in CL or burst low. AF-C. Shutter is set to E-Front + Mechanical + Electronic. I've noticed it it happens when the shutter is around 1/6000th to 1/8000th of a second. It's very annoying and I...

    Fuji XPRO2 cold weather shutter sticking

    So wanted to get some input from others here about the XPRO2 and cold weather. I was outside today. temps were between 30-35F. About every third shot or so, the camera would act as of the shutter would stick and could take anywhere from 5-15 seconds to free up and take a shot. I was not...

    Advice Wanted Shutter Release Buttons for X-T4

    For my New X-T4, now I have my extra grip on the way my next most important accessory I need [want] is those nice looking shutter buttons I see screwed into the shutter release threads. From doing some reading I gather I need the ones with the O Ring or they will come out too easily, is this...

    sonic cleaning old shutter

    I am cleaning a TLR mamiya 80 mm lens and was wondering if it is safe to sonic clean it, using a ultra sonic cleaner that you normally use for jewellery and watches. Not just the slow gear escapement (which i cleaned wiht lighter fluid but it is simply is not clean enough). So i was thinknig in...

    Micro 4/3 EM5 mark iii shutter shock

    So, I’m playing about with the above mentioned camera and try as I might, I can’t seem to get a sharp image. I “think” I have anti shock shutter options on , set at 0 seconds. Unlike the older models, there is no “diamond” option to select. It appears from the manual that the turning on of...

    Micro 4/3 Rant about Shutter Counts

    Rant on. I was thinking about selling my Olympus EM1 II since I am mainly using the Fuji cameras right now. Today I was going to check the shutter count and take some pictures. Olympus has a cryptic but clear spelled out series of button pushes needed to get to the hidden menus and the shutter...

    Fuji shutter cable release for XT-1 (2)

    Hi, Is there an alternative to using the Iphone and the RR90 to remotely fire the camera? If you use the side port for the shutter release cable does the side door weaken over time? Also, in climate weather does this change the weather resistance? Thanks.
