  1. Hi there, This is topic is mostly triggered by the curiosity to hear what other customers who have a better understanding of Fujifilm's firmware update throughout the years may think about this. I know it's purely a conjecture, just for the sake of discussion as this will have zero impact on Fujifilm's actions I'm becoming a fan of the SOOC approach, and like many others, I'm now going through the nice Film Recipes on FujiXWeekly. In particular, I've seen some nice solutions for the X-Trans IV https://fujixweekly.com/fujifilm-x-trans-iv-recipes/ I understand the X-Pro2 relies on the previous generation, the X-Trans III. Still, I'd like to hear your thoughts whether having some of those options, like Color Chrome effect, and Clarity, could add something to the X-Pro2 as well even with the X-Trans III, and if so, I'm wondering if you think Fujifilm is now done updating the X-Pro2 firmware or if there might still be a chance to get those extra, nice features. Thoughts?
  2. So, I'm not the only one! I think Fuji has a serious problem with their battery tech and at this point to me it's unacceptable. I have this issue on three different Fuji cameras. The problem is, they are all past the warranty time and if I want them serviced I have to pay. For an old X-E1 and X-E2 it may not even be worth it. I'll end up keeping the cameras as is, which sucks. Really bad, bad experience.
  3. So, it seemed to work until I took it outside, then the issue happened again. This is very frustrating. When it happened with the first camera I thought was simply bad luck, but 3 out of 4... I love Fuji, but now I'm not sure I will buy their cameras anymore.
  4. Glad the firmware worked out. BTW, I don't have a battery grip. I did the cleaning yesterday with some very, very little vinegar using a cotton swab, then a second pass with the alcohol. First tests were promising. I'll know better in the next few days.
  5. When I turn off my camera, the moment I'm going to turn it back on it doesn't work, it seems the battery are completely drained. If I remove the battery and I insert it back, then the camera turns on. This happens with the battery fully charged and I'm using an X-E2. I have the feeling the battery compartment needs some maintenance: any tips?
  6. Well, I haven't tried the X-E3, one of the things I don't think I would like is the touchscreen, never been a fan. Regardless, what I'm looking for is right at the end of my initial post: "zero latency and no blackout in the EVF". But like I said, I don't know if that's even doable in an X-E(x) body with that price range.
  7. If I'm not mistaken, the number of Fujis with DSLRs style are more than the Rangefinder style ones. The last pro model was the X-Pro2, which is still a terrific camera. And, at a cheaper cost, we have the X-3. That said, I don't see rumors about any next camera with a rangefinder style. Are, by chance, this type of camera less profitable or what? I tried the X-T10, the X-T2, great cameras, but I always go back to the X-E1, I just prefer the EVF on the left over the centered solution much better. There's so much talk about new features, IBIS, and whatnot for the new cameras, but no mention of any rangefinder. Any idea why? Personally, what I would like to see in the next X-E(x) is zero latency and no blackout in the EVF, no idea if that is achievable though. That would definitely be the biggest selling point for me.
  8. I wouldn't say the Nikon 50 1.4 is low quality. It's actually a great 50mm. Granted, it can be soft wide open, but then again which lens is not soft wide open? One stop down and it's already tack sharp. Bokeh are also beautiful from this lens, not distracting but not too soft or generic either. I think among my Nikons the only one that beats the 50 1.4 is the micro 55 2.8. As for the OP's question, I'll check when I get home as I don't remember which adapter I'm using. I definitely have some K&F which so far have worked great, but can't recall if I'm using a K&F for the Nikon as well.
  9. Hi, I just bought a used x-e1. First thing I noticed, the command dial doesn't seem to do much. I shoot manual and I'm used to the X-T10, so I was expecting the command dial to be there for a reason. I can use it to check the focus when I press it, but dialing right and left doesn't do anything. Also, is it possible to customize it? I'd like to assign either the shutter or ISO control. I have looked for a possible answer and I guess the command dial on the X-E1 is only to operate some of the menu voices and to change lens aperture? And now the bad news: after some tests, it turns out the camera renders hot pixels at high ISO
