    xpro3 travel lens

    Sorry but xpro3 deserves only primes ! It’s all about the balance btw lens & body. Let’s use a 50mm f2 and put a 16mm f2.8 in your pocket with a 2nd battery.

  8. I mentioned that the 4K video is tricky, a lot of folks doing planetary imaging use video feed captures and use software such as AutoStakkert, etc, to convert and stack the video into the incredible single images or short videos they show us. For them, a 4K feed like what your X-T4 has is a dream come true. They can focus with the settings they are working in, using telescope or camera lens. But they are not trying to combine it with a landscape background as you are in those aurora shots. They are also usually using a tracking mount. The masks I mentioned can help for longer lenses if you are quick enough to get the shot, crank up the ISO and use sort shutter speeds, and quickly take the shot as fast as you can after moving the focus ring. You can relax after that while hitting the play back button to zoom into the shot to see how close you are. Speed is needed because once you get past 50mm or so, the star’s motion over the X-T4’s small pixel sites will make it seem like what should be a round star is instead sort of egg shaped which is a problem if you hesitated getting the shot. For wider lenses, the old technique of finding the lens’ true long distance infinity focus point during the daytime, focus on something miles and miles (kilometers and kilometers) away off in the distance and mark the lens so that you can come back to that setting later at night can work well. In optics, three feet can be considered infinity when it comes to focusing, so trying for very long distances away instead of just a few hundred feet or meters works out better.

  9. @jerryy, I am well aware of the trailing effect, no worries I use different lenses for different scenarios. I do have a bahtinov mask as well, and while I have only tried it with a mirror-type 500mm lens, the results were not too good. My guess is that the mask I have is too coarse. But thanks for reminding that I have one, will give it a try next time the sky is clear.

    Sensor cleaning

    Hi, sorry for the late reply. Yes, as far as I know it's better to have the camera switched on to lock the sensor in place. I've been using this method since I bought an X-T4 a few years ago with no problems. It seems to be the recommended practice. If you do a search on YouTube you'll find some more in-depth videos on the subject.

  14. Hi, my advice would be to start with one and take it from there whether you need something wider or more tele. The two most likely lenses for the XP2 are the 23/f2 or the 35/f2. Both are almost designed for the XP-line as they don't block the OVF. They're also weather resistant if that is important to you. The only issue is that the 23/f2 is a bit soft wide open at the shortest focus distance. For general photography its not an issue. The older 23/f1.4 is a great lens, but a bit bulky (compared to the 23/f2) and slow and noisy to autofocus. An often overlooked combo for travel photography can be the 18-55/f2.8-4 and the 14/f2.8. Both are quite good, relative compact and have the same filter size/hood. They're also relative cheap to buy pre-owned.

  16. @Herco Thank you and very much and highly appreciate your advice. Definitely going for that (used) XP2, mainly because it is a great camera (plus all the facts mentioned by you), but also as I like the rangefinder style of camera and that will inspire me to shoot more! Funny that you mention this XT3, I was searching for an XT3 before I discovered the XP series :), but I guess going for the coolness factor, I admit (almost happy the Leicas are out of my budget, at least I keep telling myself so). Greetings form the Baden area

  22. For anyone who started photography in the film era before digital, the Xpro 3 would feel right at home. I started my photo journey in the film era with a Minolta X700 and Canon F1. The xpro 3 pretty much takes me back to exactly how it felt before. No ridiculous 1000+ features, of which most I’ll never use, etc. It’s well laid out and designed from a purist standpoint. It just gets out of the way and lets me shoot the photos. I didn’t check the back of my film door to look at the picture I just took with my X700, so I don’t have that expectation on my Xpro 3 either. Now for people who grew up digital and never shot film cameras, it might be the backwards situation for them. They might feel like why do I have less when my other digital has so much more. It’s important to remember that the Xpro is all about the “less is more” experience. It might not be a home run sales hit like a Sony A7, but for who the Xpro line is made for, I’d say it was/is a massive success. Many times they’re completely sold out and you can’t even get one unless you jump on the ball soon as they come up for sale.

  23. The XT5 images are supported by Lightroom on the iPad - the only place you will see the blank square is when you are importing from the Photos app which doesn't support the XT5. Once the files are imported into Lightroom from Photos you will see them. Apple takes a long time to support new Fujifilm cameras - X-H2 isn't supported yet either (and of course compressed raws aren't supported from any Fujifilm X series camera).

  24. Wow. Well, asked, and answered! Thank you for an excellent and thoughtful reply! Once upon a time, I used cameras on telescopes. I spent a summer shooting star fields through a triplet refractor whose 8" objective was actually made by Cooke, with a 5" refractor guide scope whose objective was made by Alvan Clark. But that was 43 years ago. I think things have changed!

    X-Pro3 LCD blanking

    It takes a bit of practice, but hold the camera a bit further away from your body. What’s happening is the viewfinder sensor located just to the right of the viewfinder is picking up your body thinking it’s your face and switching back to the viewfinder from the LCD.

    Introduce Yourself

    Hello. Comparatively new to Fuji and mirrorless digital. Until early 2022 I was shooting LF film (Horseman 45FA) scanned on a Flextight II, and MF digital (Hasselblad V-series with 50MP digital back). Decided I was too old to cart the LF gear around, so traded it in on a used GFX-50R and 32-64mm. Really liked using the 50R on an extended overseas trip, so bought the 100-200mm OIS to go with it. On my return to Australia, I realised that I was mostly using the 50R in preference to the Hasselblad. So after 20 years of shooting Hasselblad I sold it all, and spent the money on an X-Pro3 with 35mm, 16mm and 100-400mm. I do have a question about the X-Pro3 which I have posted in the appropriate subforum. Edited to say: my favourite ever 35mm camera was the Contax G1 and I've spent a while looking for a digital equivalent. I think that I may have found it in the X-Pro 3.

  33. The glass is rather durable. Unless you gouge it with keys or something else in your bag most likely you'll upgrade your camera before the glass is scratched too much. As far as cleaning, I clean all my glass with an old, 30 year old cloth diaper that I used on my girls. I have several of them. If you don't have any of that, a good quality microfiber cloth, and a drop of eye glass cleaning fluid on a Q-Tip will take care of the viewfinder --- also very good on the rear panel, and lenses bTw Hope that helps.

  45. I held back buying the xp3 because of the screen, but a while back I caved and purchased the 3 in Dura Silver (black was OOS). I couldn't be happier with it. I thought the screen would become a PITA, but now realize I don't chimp as much as I thought I did. No ragrets (not even a vowel). love their updated custom menu screen, stiffer exp comp dial, better AF. The dura silver contrast looks great with the black lenses too. I'm an xpro shooter for life, or until they jump the shark.
