    Pecos River in Winter

    We set out mid-morning for our first ever winter visit to the canyon. The narrow, twisting road had a fair number of scary icy and snow-covered patches, but Diana's bad weather Michigan driving skills were up to the challenge. There were very few places to stop due to the snow banks, but we found a spot near the Terrero General Store and walked back to an old bridge with a path that went down to the river. The tall trees (Douglas fir, Colorado Blue Spruce, Ponderosa Pines), shrubs, rocks, and snow-covered hills were a wonderful backdrop for the rushing waters. We walked a bit, sat by the river, and drank in the marvels of Nature.

    Fall pictures

    The cottonwood leaves start out as a light minty green in early spring, and then darker green until the gold of late autumn. Here a few of the aspens from a few years ago.

    Should I trade in my XT1 for an XT3

    I traded in my X-T1 and X-T2 for an X-T3. Really happy. focus is much faster. Still love the small APS-C sized camera after shooting Nikons professionally for 30 years. The weight difference is minor.

    Thank you ! I did not find any XT3 specific ones on eBay, but good to know that the Nikon ones work fine too. I will check it out.

    X-T3 Extreme Cold Weather Test! -35

    Hi all! I took my xt3 out into the freezing cold temps of northern Canada to see if it could still operate (-35 Celsius wind chill) , and I was very happy with the results! Along with the vertical battery grip I was able to shoot 179 raw photos, 8 minutes of 1080p @120fps footage, and 12 minutes of 4K footage. Also I kept the camera turned on the entire time and it stayed alive for 2 hours and 10 minutes! It almost lasted longer than I could in the cold temps! Here is a video of the “experiment” Enjoy! https://youtu.be/KbPLtC8MmZM

    So, I am late to this topic, but it finally happened to me. I tried every troubleshooting method I could and finally found what has appeared to be a consistent fix for MY issue. The issue is the same as mentioned, so this may help you, at least until a proper repair can be made. My batteries were not being recognized, so the boost mode would not work, and occasionally I would see the grip batteries indicators pop up for a second or two on my screen and then disappear. While checking all of the contacts I slowly unscrewed the grip tension wheel while the camera was still on. I found that the batteries would suddenly show up after about two full rotations. The contacts have apparently, over time, had some sort of short created by the constant pressure and now will lose contact if the grip is fully tightened down. I temporarily fixed this by putting some 1mm thick mounting tape down on the grip in a few spots, to fill the tiny gap created by not having the tension down fully (don't take off the plastic film, or your grip will be permanently fixed to the camera). Now, I can securely tighten the grip down to full tension, but still have that small gap, so there is not full pressure on the contacts. This is a bit of a ghetto fix and probably not a permanent solution, but now my batteries are consistently showing on screen and the boost mode function is working fine. I can barely see a bit of light between the grip and camera, so any weather sealing that was there is no longer, but at least I've identified the problem for my camera and maybe it will help you in a pinch until you can get it repaired.

    There are only three Fuji lenses that touched my heart with their rendering and "magical" character - 18/2, 35/1.4 and 60/2.4. I agree about 23/1.4 it has clinical rendering, that's why I did not buy it. Unfortunately I am not touched by other Fuji lenses. Next two I found interesting regarding the image rendering is 55-200mm f/4.8 and 27/2.8.
