  1. Nice, sharp and close. Like the smooth backgrounds too.
  2. Hello and welcome! Hope to see some of your photos.
  3. Yes, if the price is right. It's still an excellent camera, with a great balance of good handling with light weight, plus a good evf and excellent image quality. The second hand prices tend to low now the X-E3 has been out a while. I have an X-T2 now, but still use my X-E2 with the smaller primes when I want to save weight.
  4. Looks like very useful new addition to the range. Not too heavy, not too expensive. I could be very happy travelling with this plus one f1.4 prime.
  5. Yes, I'd guessed that my 35mm or my 18-135 would be the most used, but when I checked on Flickr it was my 27mm that gets most use. It's such a versatile focal length and so light.
  6. A lucky shot in a mall coffee shop. Bright back-light from the mall, so I whacked up the exposure compensation, and it gave it a studio look ..... 23mm f1.4
  7. Decent price, lighter than my 18-135 and should be a decent portrait lens at f4 and 50 to 80mm, as well as a good travel lens. I thought I didn't need one as I have the 18-135 already, but now I think I need one. 😁
  8. Often cold weather means dry air, so less risk than in warmer, tropical countries. Condensation can be a risk when bringing cold equipment back indoors. The key issue from cold is batteries, as they lose power as the temperature drops. This impacts all cameras, weathersealed or not. Try to keep spare batteries in your pocket, and have extra spares.
  9. Excellent, atmospheric monochrome images in your portfolio!
  10. Very nice image. For me, the 18-55 is my least used lens, but whenever I do use it, I wonder why I don't use it more! I guess I just have an illogical prejudice against zooms. I use the 27mm and 35mm primes most the time, but of course the same range is covered by the excellent 18-55, but I end up using two lenses. Go figure.
  11. Yes, sounds like manual shutter is the practical option. Would an alternative be to just set a higher max iso limit for auto-iso? If you don't want a shutter speed longer than you chosen minimum, then something else has to give? I guess this doesn't help if you're using a tripod though.
  12. Solar charging will be very slow, and in practice you'll be on the move during the day so solar charging may be impractical, and then at night solar is no use. But I've seen advertisements for solar charging rucksacks, and this may be an answer? Use the solar cells on the rucksack to charge the spare battery via a USB charger whilst walking around? Wouldn't work in UK, but could work in countries with sunlight.

    Sizzling, sensual, dramatic light and use of monochrome. Excellent.
  14. I have an aftermarket cap on my 'travel' X-m1/27mm, and it has the string to stop me losing it (again). But I don't use the string on the X-E2 as I'm always swapping lenses, but I forget - so remove the cap and just let it go, and only realize my error when I hear the cap bounce off the floor.
  15. I guess the scene as viewed by the naked eye looked most like image 1? Image 2 looks better due to the +1 color boost, but it depends on if you want to document the day as ot really was, or create a more pleasing image? As our photos influence our memories over time, I would go with the boosted to make the memories brighter.
