  1. I have just found a post from way back in January 2018 from Lonerangefinder the title of which is 'WiFi Security with Fuji Remote'. 20 months after that post was made the story on 12th August 2019 is that cameras apparently can be infected with ransomware by remotely tricking the camera into installing a malicious firmware update. A test was conducted on a Canon EOS 80D. Access via WiFi or Bluetooth. Give us the money and we'll let the pictures go. You get to view the threat via the EVF or Screen. Sources are Threatpost, Mashable, Engadget, PCMag also ShortList all reporting on research from Check Point. What I would like to know is is it possible to turn off the WiFi or Bluetooth on an X-T2?

  3. If Fuji reads these topics please can I have an update for a very minor focusing change on my X-T2 (which I hope will be delivered soon). I photograph a lot of stuff which is basically flat, a bit like copying but with bumps and sticky-up bits. Because I sometimes have a problem squaring-up myself with the subject the shot goes slightly out of focus to one side, usually to the right edge. I would like a focus option which would allow me to select 4 separate points, at once, within the finder, probably toward each corner. They would each be White when focused and go Red when not focused, thus enabling me to square-up to the subject with 4 white points. Way back I used an SLR which had interchangeable screens, one of which was a full screen Microprism. If, when copying flat sheets, you could see the subject clearly, it was in focus, all over, edge to edge. If it was even slightly out of focus it was a total scrambled blur.
  4. Perfect, exactly what I needed. Thanks for the reference.
  5. Versatile, inexpensive but good 18-55mm f2.8-4 and 55-200mm f3.5-4.8. However can anyone recommend a good adapter for a Sony Zeiss 16-80 to Fuji X?
  6. I remember noting that some article I read mentioned an Fuji X lens that was not good for close-ups and therefore not recommended for use with the extension tubes. Back in the day I used all kinds of lenses with tubes or bellows with no IQ probs at all. So are there Fuji X lenses that are particularly good, or bad, with extension tubes? Any recommendations other than wait for the new 80mm macro instead.
  7. I have just finished reading the X-T2 brochure PDF and also the specifications on the Fuji site. I was v pleased with specs and will be having an X-T2 at earliest opportunity as I am assuming that the IQ is really better than that shown in the PDF brochure. One small thing that I will miss is the Artificial Horizon (Electronic Level) which is not listed in the specs. This is a feature that I was surprised to find really useful on the X-T1. It would be good if this was an error of omission in type and not engineering. I am looking forward to the reviews as I live in a land with NO Camera stores which means I cannot check out stuff before parting with cash. (I can't benefit from Fuji's great discounts, either.)
  8. Note to self, Post 'Post' Rule Nr. 1:- Remember to check for replies/responses. To quincy, Some weeks ago I came across a ref. to your List on Fuji Rumours, via Flipboard, on my phone. I took the link to my PC and found Fuji X Forum, so thanks for that. Camera One gets one recommendation. I've just dug out my 8 year old Zeiss 16-80mm zoom that has a Sony a100 on the thin end, note that I chose the lens first and body to fit, the a100 does not focus well and at 10 mega px it can't make A3 at 300dpi. The Zeiss, however is very nice. It will do for now.
  9. I recently joined Fuji X Forum for the following excellent and worthwhile reasons To checkout that Complete Overview of Lenses that was posted by quincy. To find out your views concerning the processing of Fuji X images, what do people use - Iridient or Adobe Camera Raw or something else, from reports I have seen I would go for Iridient, but I no longer have Macs, so what is good? To find out if it is worthwhile waiting for the X-T2. I had an X-T1 it had a fault, my dealer returned my money as opposed to sending it back to Fuji. I still have a 55-200mm lens, the large hand grip, battery, remote control, case, stuff etc.. It took me three months to settle on X-T1 and it still tops my list, so waiting is OK but for how long...
  10. I voted viewfinder. I chose the X-T1 for its big viewfinder so that is what I tend to use. I was brought up on Gandolfi 5x4 view cameras so I am in the habit of keeping a black cloth in the kit Just in case I want to use the display when the tripod is being used. I find that keeping out all stray light improves the view, working inside or out, but I have not used the display much so far. Menus. I voted for little use. I may reset the specs for bracketing at the beginning of a shoot to see what might work, exposure (if only there was a 7 bracket) and film type are two that come to mind. If there is nothing worthwhile I will shoot with top of camera settings/variations as normal. The top of the X-T1 says it all.
