Hello,

My name is Renaud from France.

I have been a Nikon User since 1989. My first serious shots were when I moved to  England to get my degree in 1992-1993.

My first fuji camera is a used x pro-1 that I use at the moment  with my nikkor prime lenses.

I also use a Bronica sq equipement ans a Toyo 5x4 camera.

I still print my own negatives in a darkroom.

 

X pro -1 seems to me a way to shoot with an affordable " leica like " camera .

Hi, my name is Massimo and I live in Rome since 54 years  :( !!

Last July I decided to go with a different way to take photo after many years of Nikon (FM2, D90, D7100, together with several lens).

I was very happy to start with a X-Pro2 plus 35 f/2 and 23 f/2 and for the moment I won't sell my Nikon set.

I love to take photo during my summer trip and to organize, use Lightroom and print them during the winter time.

 

I'm very proud to introduce myself in this forum. ;) 

See you!

Im Photobob,

Retired pro photographer 1990's and retired from my other business in 2016.

My wife and I just became "FullTimers" in our 30' Class "A" motorhome.

I just adopted the Fujifilm X-T2 and am building a basic system to replace my Pentax K-3 and those heavy DA* lenses.

I was a Pentax shooter since film days but could no longer carry the load.

I chose Fujifilm over the Sony 6500 because of build quality and the overall performance of the lenses.

I have reclaimed my amateur status and photograph almost everything. I shoot what catches my eye.

Since my wife likes to travel, most of my images, of late, have been of distant places.

I have done fairly well in international photo competitions, but I don't consider myself an artist. Just one who seizes visual opportunities. 

Looking forward to learning & sharing with other Fujifilm users.

 

Bob

Well- I’ve bitten the bullet this week. The Nikon D7100 has gone, as have several lenses, flash etc. In its place is a Fuji X-T20 with XF 18-55 and XF 35mm f2 lenses.

I was very tempted by the X-T2 and also with both XF 16-55 and XF18-135 lenses- in some ways the X-T 2 is better handling. However with these options you start getting back to a sizeable piece of kit- which rather defeats the object of the exercise.

I’ve kept my Nikon 50mm f1.8 and 85mm f1.8 lenses - they work with my Nikon FE and I can get an adapter to allow them to work with the Fuji. That should keep me going until I can afford the (rather tasty) XF 90mm.

 

Really looking forward to being part of the Fuji community...

Hi

 

I am a lens engineer for a cine rental house and just bought a XT20 yesterday. I am looking forward to being able to use this camera properly ( getting my head around the dials/buttons ) with all its array of possible settings. I Hope to learn a lot from this forum too.

Hi, my name is Thea. Although I have been taking photographs for many years, starting out on film, I have only just acquired a Fujifilm X100F, a camera I’ve wanted ever since it first came out. It is very different from anything else I’ve ever used and I feel like a complete novice all over again. I want to use the manual mode but am finding it difficult to get the focus spot on so any hints on the subject would be extremely welcome. Thanks, and looking forward to scrolling through some of your photos.

Hi,

 

I am Javed Miandad. I am currently living in Alaska but originally from Bangladesh. I bought a FUJI XM1 two years back and still using it. I was a canon user and now planning to switch all my gear to fuji. Trying to save some money to buy fuji xt2. I have rokinon 12mm, 27mm, and old Nikkor 50mm with my fuji. I just love the awesome colors that fuji produces. Some of my photographs can be found at https://www.flickr.com/photos/javed09/flickr and in jmiandad.com.

Hi, my name is Gary. 

I live in Stevenage, England (just outside of London)

 

Recently i brought a Fuji X-T1 to try out. I've read and seen lots of positive things about the Fuji mirrorless range so i thought i'd give it a go. Just need to buy some lenses now.

I also have a Nikon D7100 and lenses, so have brought a cheap converter just so i can start shooting with my X-T1.

 

I'm really happy to shoot anything, but mainly architecture, wildlife and trying to get into portraiture/people a little more.

 

My work can be found at https://www.flickr.c.../22396044@N08/ 

 

Thanks for having me.

Hi,

 

My name is John Warren and I live in Mississauga, Ontario Canada. I have been shooting with Nikon for forty years and will be dumping all my Nikon gear real soon and picking up the X-T2 and a few lenses. I figured that this would be a great place to learn more about the Fuji system before I buy into it. I shoot mostly sports and right now I shoot a lot of hockey and after seeing some hockey photos posted, I have to say that I am quite impressed how the X-T2 handles the higher ISO settings.

Hi,

 

I am new to the forum and fairly new to Fuji, having bought my X-T2 and some lenses in October last year. Previously I was a long-time Nikon user but the image quality and smaller and lighter body and lenses were a big attraction and I have not regretted the purchases.

I live in the beautiful Isle of Man, which is the island in the middle of the Irish Sea and probably best known for tail-less Manx cats and the TT road races for motorcycles. It is a wind-blown place for much of the year, but with a mountain, glens, beaches, villages and lots of open countryside it is a peaceful and photogenic place to live.

Looking forward to getting involved here  :)

Hello!

 

My name is Jacob. I live (born and raised) in Austin Texas and I've been photographing weddings for nearly a decade now. 

 

I used Canon up until this past October when I got my Fuji Xpro 2. I am impressed to say the least and am looking forward to all of the learning I will surely do.

 

It's great to find such an extensive amount of information in one place and I am happy to be here.

Hey all, my name is Tynan. I am a high school sophomore from the state of Massachusetts. 

 

I have been taking pictures since I was 4 or so, thanks to a really cool grandparent. Ever since then I have been in love with clean, in camera photography, and the tactile feel of it all. 

 

About a year ago I started to devote myself to stills more so than video, which I was very into, and bought myself an XT-10 body. With a couple of vintage lenses (party due to their beautiful quirks and qualities, and partly because I can't be asked to buy even a kit lens for the XT-10) I have been honing my craft in a variety of photography subjects. 

 

Just sold my Nikon D3300 tonight, thinking of replacing it soon though, just because the video quality of the XT-10 isn't quite enough to do it all for me. 

 

Either way, glad to be here, you can see a sample of my work on Instagram (@tynanconnors) if you would like, as my website is still in the process of being built. 

 

Thank you all!
