    IMHO, the new X-Pro3 has a terrible design. I'm glad I have an X-Pro2!

    I could not be happier with my X-T2 and X-Pro2 cameras and assorted Fuji lenses. The X-T3 is of no interest to me.

    That is great, sgmcenroe! I have not had to do the reset on my camera, but I figure it must be like a re-boot on the computer. Happy shooting!

    I'm with Warwick, I think the X-T2 and the X-H1 are aimed at different users. While I like all I have seen/read about the X-H1, I like my X-T2 for the photography I'm doing. I just can't say enough good things about the X-T2.

    Manxmaid, we had the good fortune to spend several days on the Isle of Man back in the late 80's. What a beautiful place and what friendly people. Seeing your post brought back fond memories of having been there. Yes, we just got lucky and were there for the TT race. Wow! That was amazing.

    The rest of us kan keep doing what we’ve always done.I don’t understand the need of a monochrome camera because I am happy with my B&W processing of color originals. (please look here)

    Edmond, I agree with Konzy. While I love my X-T2, it would be a very steep learning curve for you, IMHO. Konzy has suggested several good alternatives.

    gaopa reacted to Woodworth in X-E3 - have Fuji lost their way?   
    I’ve been using Fuji since they introduced the X-E1. Over the years since I have had a number of Fuji bodies and lenses but have settled on an X-T2 and an X-E2s with various prime lenses. I have always found Fuji to be a great system to work with and have earned much of my income from their products.
     
    The lineage of each model seemed logical and each new version made progressive improvements such as improved AF or resolution for example. You can tell that the X-E2s is progression from the original X-E1 with nicely thought out additions or upgrades. The X-T2 is such a nice camera and certainly a step up from the X-T1. So far, so good.
     
    In my mind at least the line up worked something like X-A cameras for amateurs, casual shooters, etc. The X-T10/20 for the more trendy photographer, someone who liked innovation such as touch screens and blue tooth and the cute look of the camera. The X-E cameras for the expert photographer, the person who liked the rangefinder styling and the smaller size for travelling and discrete photography, a street photographers camera perhaps. the X-T range for the more demanding photographer, someone who wanted a more professional kind of camera in a DSLR style and the X-Pro for the same kind of photographer who preferred a rangefinder kind of camera. I’m probably wildly wrong here but at least it’s a stab at my understanding the lineage of the various Fuji offerings.
     
    Then came the X-E3 and messed it all up for me. Here was a camera that looked like an X-E camera but seemed more at home in a X-T20s? In the lineage, instead of a progression, someone seems to have left the logical path and gone off track with this camera. In my mind at least, the X-E3 should have been an upgrade from the X-E2s. Perhaps a X-E2s with the X-T2 sensor and AF but with the XT-20 flippy screen and IBIS. I can see how introducing bluetooth connectivity with a tablet and touch screens would appeal to an X-T20 user perhaps but where is the camera for the X-E1, X-E2 and X-E2s user?
     
     
    I’m trying desperately hard to find the good in the X-E3 and I will try one out but it simply does not appeal to me right now. I feel that Fuji have spoilt a good thing by letting someone introduce trendy features onto something that was historically more traditional. It would be a shame if Fuji lost their vision after all the success they have had to date.

    Yes, over the years the few cards that have been reported as corrupted, the common thread was that they were not formatted in the camera. Evidently, cards—like hard-drives—can become fragmented. Formatting them in the camera restores them to what the camera wants to see when it writes.

    I'm not aware of a way to delete them simultaneously.  And, IMHO you shouldn't be deleting images on the camera anyway as that "could" cause data corruption on the card.   Just my two cents.
