  1. Hi all, yes, I posted a brief article with a link to a handy YouTube video of removing the inner rings... ive been using the strap in this way for a month and it works well mostly.photos chris
  2. I got bored waiting for RAW support and have switched to C1... I was going to opt for Fuji Express, then thought Fuji Pro before opting for full Pro (I have a canon and Nikon RAW back catalog of around 50,000 files and C1 is so much better than LR that I plan to re-visit these images,
  3. While I was waiting on LR to support the X-T3 RAW files I did a trial of Capture One Pro Fujifilm... some comparison renders and thoughts on my site.. http://www.mostly.photos/blog/2018/10/18/capture-one-pro-11-fujifilm-vs-adobe-photoshop-lightroom-classic-cc-ver-8 It was worth the time to learn the basics and render a few Fuji RAWs... Capture One Pro is a seriously good application for Fuji IMO
  4. While I was waiting I decided to trial Capture One Pro... I wrote a brief article with some example images (processed in Lightroom and Capture One Pro) Adobe might be supporting the X-T3 but I don't think that they will ever address the sharpening issues they have with X Trans sensors... http://www.mostly.photos/blog/2018/10/18/capture-one-pro-11-fujifilm-vs-adobe-photoshop-lightroom-classic-cc-ver-8
  5. I afraid to say that I'm a bit of a die hard LR fan.. but never been 100% happy with the sharpening on X-Trans Files... aka WORMS! I'm not keen on shifting to a new solution but while waiting for LR to support X-T3 RAW files I have been using a trial of Capture One FujiFilm.. I must say that I've been impressed. I can see why people like this application... the highlight and shadow sliders alone demonstrate the power and advantage of Fuji RAW... I'm certainly considering at least continuing with the Fuji Express version. I'll likely retain LR for a while and maybe shift wholesale over at some point in the future.. especially as the Phase One and Fuji relationship grows... Fuji Film Simulation Profiles will be another strong selling point when they arrive..
  6. I've written a brief article/review on the recently released Fuji X-T3... welcome to take a look http://www.mostly.photos/blog/2018/9/12/fuji-x-t3-hands-on-review
  7. I agree.. the manual updates are a little obtuse.. I experimented with the feature and good some acceptable results (Landscape Photograph) see my brief post for detail http://www.mostly.photos/blog/2018/5/13/fuji-x-t2-firmware-40-focus-stacking-example-landscape This said, Fuji recently pulled the release and have recommended installing the 4.1 (rollback) release for the time being. They are addressing bugs so I don't expect a revision to the focus stacking feature but it would be nice to see it improved
  8. Nice one Fuji... always appreciate. I had a play with the focus stacking functionality this afternoon. You could say that the Fuji Manual updates are a little obtuse but with some quick experimentation I was able to get some good results... Detail More Details can be found on my blog post http://www.mostly.photos/blog/2018/5/13/fuji-x-t2-firmware-40-focus-stacking-example-landscape
  9. I took my X-T2 out during my lunch break for some canids in Spitalfields Market, London. I shot in ACROS film simulation mode. http://www.mostly.photos/blog/2017/12/2/fuji-x-t2-acros-spitalfields-market
  10. I recently visited Northumberland in the North East of the UK. I took the Fuji X-T2 with 18-135mm and 10-24mm to the beach at dawn. http://www.mostly.photos/blog/2017/10/7/fuji-x-t2-dunstanburgh-castle http://www.mostly.photos/blog/2017/10/7/fuji-x-t2-dunstanburgh-castle-5af5a
  11. I recently visited Nothumberland in the North East of the United Kingdom. The Northumberland Coast is beautiful and I have started to pull together some brief blog posts with some of the images from the trip as well as brief guides to locations. http://www.mostly.photos/blog/2017/9/30/fuji-x-t2-northumberland-coast
  12. The Trio 28 is an interesting product.. it gives the option to use any of three classic Lensbaby effects in one lens. I have been using one recently and am planning on posting some real world shots http://www.mostly.photos/blog/2017/8/12/lensbaby-trio-28-sweet
  13. My friends at Lensbaby have sent me a Lensbaby Trio 28 to try out on the X-T2. I decided to try out the 'Sweet' mode first. I set the X-T2 to ACROS Film Simulation and took some test shots on my daily commute in to London http://www.mostly.photos/blog/2017/8/12/lensbaby-trio-28-sweet
  14. I recently tried out the X-T2 paired with the 18-135mm for Autofocus speed test... http://www.mostly.photos/blog/2017/7/1/fuji-x-t2-autofocus-examples The pair did a great job of capturing the subject. I was surprised.
  15. I'm not very experienced with timelapse but I recently heard a podcast where they discussed 'Arsenal' https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2092430307/arsenal-the-intelligent-camera-assistant-0 This tool has many features that support timelapse. During the podcast they mentioned not to set the camera to auto during timelapse due to the camera fluctuations in exposure (e.g. as sun goes behind a cloud)
  16. I'd also avoid deleting individual photos but I wonder if there is a key combination like there is with format. (press and hold delete for an second + press in rear scroll wheel)
  17. @mcdesign - Thank you for the kind comments. I have a Samyang Fisheye that I might experiment with in the future. I live in London, UK and will struggle to find some dark skies... but hopefully I will get a chance soon to try again with the Milky Way... it's a fascinating subject.
  18. That's a beautiful shot. We do struggle with the light pollution in the UK... I was also on location a little early.. I think the light was improving (getting darker!) all the time. I swapped out the 16mm for my wide 10-24 but as that is f4 max aperture it struggled more... but the Milky Way seems clearer...
  19. I recently had the opportunity to visit a remote South facing beach in Wales, UK - I thought I'd try and capture the Milky Way with my X-T2 and 16mm f1.4 I wrote a brief article with further images and information on how I took the shot
  20. Hi, I moved to Fuji from Nikon (D800) - The X-T2 is very capable and robust for all weather use. As noted in the thread the 55-200 is excellent but not weather sealed. I use the excellent (super-kit) 18-135mm which is fairly lightweight for the focal range and is a very versatile option. Step up a class to the 50-140 f2.8 if you want tough weather sealed pro glass. If your wife is keen on Landscape she might consider the 16-55 ... but for weight and portability I personally have shifted to Primes specifically the 14 or 16mm... the 16mm f1.4 is an excellent lens in every way.
  21. I'm used to using Zooms from my life with a Nikon D800 but now I am in the Fuji camp I have found that I am slowly shifting to using Primes. I have the 10-24 (after I sold the 14mm) but I don't use it that much... I will see how valuable it is on an upcoming trip and consider selling. The 14mm is great.
  22. I tried both when I was in the market to upgrade my X-T1... Neither the dealer nor myself could get the X-Pro2 focus to work correctly... which put me off.... also I am left handed and left eyed which seemed more un-comfortable on the X-Pro2 than the X-T2...
  23. Another vote for Cactus. Certainly worth looking at.
  24. There may be a way to see the data of Shutter Actuations (There was on my Nikon but not 100% sure about Fuji) If you are not happy I'd return it and get a replacement...
