    the new look

    I don’t know if and when you are coming back to this, but the forum still looks as butt-ugly as it did when it re-appeard in its new unflattering version. I hope that you are going to follow up on the promise of improvements. Using this interface feels positively uncomfortable. It is not impossible to use, of course. I’ve posted quite a bit since the “ new look” came to pass, but it really bothers my sense of beauty to use a mostly white page in this day and age and more importantly for folks ( photographers) whom value aesthetics (don’t we?).

    have you taken this before changing the color temperature settings? It still looks pretty blue to me.

    the new look

    I am afraid that the baby was thrown out with the bathwater. The forum update was not only an aesthetic change but a complete migration to a different software which, very possibly, doesn’t offer that stylish look at all! Whatever it will be, the tweaks that can be brought about will leave lots to be desired in comparison to the much sleeker look the forum had before. Not only but now there is a positive discrepancy between forum and Fujirumors site/blog

    Setting depth of sharp focus

    even if the camera can do the calculation for you it cannot overcome the optical laws which govern this. The (apparent) depth of field is a function of distance , aperture and circle of confusion. There will be situations in which you tell the camera that you want to focus point A close- by and point B further away but you are too close to achieve that or the aperture is to open to achieve that. Unless you are aware of how these work together you won’t understand why the camera isn’t doing what you want the camera to do (and it can’t regardless whether this is an automatic function or not precisely because of the limits imposed by the laws of physics and optics ). Anyway in your display (if you have this function activated) there is a function that shows you where the focus is in ft or m, there is also a function that shows you the interval of the depth of field ( pointing to where it is set close to you and further away from you). In not autofocus lenses this function was for example on the lens barrel itself for the operator to be aware of this. The displays, even if very sharp, can’t display the DOF is sufficient detail (unless very close by) to offer a satisfying check by vision reading. Anyway, despite any automatism you really should try to understand the principles governing DOF in photography. https://www.fujifilm.com.au/blogs/digital-photography/circle-of-confusion-and-what-it-means-to-be-in-focus

    the new look

    indeed, alongside with the cheaper and more spartan look and the loss of the “ recent posts “ column (which was a great asset since it gave you a view of the latest running topics) we lost that too. In exchange we got all the emoticons (or emoji as they now call them) in the world that I seriously doubt that we ever felt the need to have. I am staring at a page which is mostly white and wonder where the stylish forum that I joined has gone. Makes me feel a void. Also I am not (yet?) aware of how to add a signature , as far as I can tell, at present, this feature is either hidden somewhere that I couldn’t find or has gone altogether.
