    You can add highlight alert in the Set Up menu under Screen Setting => Customize the standard display.
    It works for stills.

    What's wrong with the histogram? It lets you preserve highlights without being distracted by flashing view. Might be just a matter of habit.

    PROBLEM SOLVED RE Q button
    I noticed a small yellow padlock displayed on LCD which is active when "controls have been locked"
    To use this lock feature press and hold the Menu/OK button to activate and/or deactivate.
    I switched it off and the Q button now works !!!!!!!
    How it was switched on is a mystery to me but at least Q is now working.

    You have to change it for every lens you mount on the camera.  That is why I wish Fuji would allow that setting to be added to the Q Menu !!!!!
     
    The value you enter does nothing to correct the image due to any possible lens distortion.  It is only adding that focal length to the EXIF data.
     
    Have fun shooting with vintage adapted lenses.

    Adam Woodhouse got a reaction from tedorland in Making prints from Fuji X-Trans files   
    I have printed a nice sharp image that was approx 8 - 10 megapixel as a 2ft x 3ft stretched canvas.  I have a few of them from yester-year.  They all look excellent.  Canvas is a more forgiving medium to print on.  Remember, viewing distance (optimal) is at least 2x the vertical size of the print.  Its ok for an image to not be perfectly sharp or noise free ... it is the subject matter that people will notice and the large 'wow factor' from it being nice and big.  Only you will be the one to notice and give a care about the technical details.  People can print larger than they think from just listening to others on the web.  I have found from experience that I can print twice as large as what a print shop recommends and still be quite happy with the results. 
     
    What people don't realize is the image needs to be pre-sharpened before printing and the pre-sharpening needs to be stronger than they would think it should be.  It may look oversharpened on your screen, but it will print great.  Your screen and print material (paper, canvas, metal, etc) show the image different, so if it looks oversharpened on the screen, it will probably be just right for print.  But trial and error and experimenting is without a doubt the best approach.  Have fun!

    Agreed.  I have the flash and it has performed well.  
     
    There isn't many people that have that flash (at least it seems that way on the forums) because they are all wanting a cheaper alternative.  But anyone that has it, I haven't yet seen anyone complain other than wishing it was not line-of-sight when using as master/slave setup.

    When using adapted lenses, I usually shoot with either Velvia or Acros + R film simulation.
     
    Most of these shared are with my old Canon 24/2.8 or Minolta 58/1.4

    Since it has an effective focal length of 30mm, it would be a great casual walk around (street for example) lens.
     
    I really enjoy my 1973 Canon 24mm F2.8 SCC since it gives that common 35mm field of view.

    Cool lens I picked up. It's pretty big and heavy, but balances well on my X-T1.
    It focuses to less than 6" allowing it to be both wide angle and macro.

    Good luck if you do that.
     
    After my 3rd Nikon full frame DSLR failed on me at weddings, I ditched all of that product line and went to Fuji.  Not because I was naive and thought Fuji would be problem free, just frustrated and time for a change.
     
    My D3s (their flag ship for a short while) had 2 repairs at Nikon for a random locking up with ERR code on the top LCD.  After 2 repairs and almost $900 (Canadian) it still wasn't fixed and Nikon didn't know what the problem was.  The other 2 failed bodies (D700 and D610) both had different mechanical failures that each required approx $400 repair bills.
     
    The grass isn't always greener on the other side.
     
    Oh ... and a side note.  When I got the D610 I had an incident where video I recorded did not get written to the memory card.  I followed up with Nikon and they didn't know why that would happen.  I later discovered that if the batter got low, there was a chance video would look like it was recording to the memory card but it wasn't!  wtf    From that point on I always made sure when shooting video for wedding clients that the D610 had a battery with more than 50% power.  I was always worried that my video recording was in fact not recording after that.  But I never had that video issue again.
