    I just enjoy taking pictures and trying to make them interesting. Hopefully you will enjoy looking at these images, all taken with my X-E3 (which I just love) or my newer GFX 50R (which I just love)
  2. I picked up the 50r and love it ... the only things I don't like are minor. The biggest irritation: The USB port is on the bottom opposite the on/off switch. I find it cumbersome to set down, usb-c plug in and turn on. I can't set the camera on its base (because the cable is on the bottom) like I can with my x-e3. So now I let the edge of the base dangle over my computer case. That works but it took me a while to get there. The usb cover feels a bit cheap and the way it opens means I have to struggle a bit to get it out of the way to get the usb-c plugged in. Also it would be nice if I could switch the card access from usb transfer to raw convert mode without having to unplug the cable, but that issue is not specific to the gfx 50. One of the reasons I like it (besides all the obvious stuff) that I don't have to learn a whole new system after being really comfortable with my x-e3.
  3. Thanks, Herco - I suspected something like that. I have both FastStone and Nomacs image viewers and they show the image as I would expect. It's only Affinity Photo that has the issue, I'll contact them. Regarding Dynamic Range, it's one of the least used settings for me, I usually just use auto. However I generally shoot manual mode and like to control all the settings, with an understanding of what I am choosing and why. I see on the GFX 50R that when I lower iso to 320, dynamic range is reduced from 400 to 200 and I receive a warning, or yellow dynamic range icon. Can you (or anyone) either point me to an article or explain the choices involved in picking a dynamic range? Historically I tend to shoot landscapes with the lowest ISO possible, using a tripod. Are there merits to shooting landscapes with a higher iso, say 400 with a 400 dynamic range? If dynamic range is simply changing the exposure why do I even need it? I can already control the exposure. I think I generally understand the concept of dynamic range, but I am definitely lost when I hear that it just changes the exposure. What am I missing?
  4. I find when I look at my images on the camera (evf and lcd) and in Fast stone they look good. When I load them into Affinity Photo they are underexposed. This might be an Affinity Photo issue. Are you finding similar? I also have Dynamic Range set to 400, would that cause this? Maybe I need to check with Affinity Photo on their software and compatibility with Fuji RAF.
  5. How do you position your camera for file transfer? usb-c connector is on the bottom which feels awkward compared to my x-e3 where I can set the camera flat on its base during transfer. I'm not used to or completely comfortable setting the camera down upside down or sideways. First world problem for sure. My windows 10 machine is unable to preview RAF files. Do you know how I might be able to fix that? Battery and connector access doors on bottom of camera feel cheap and flimsy compared to the data card door. Everything else is just fantastic. All I need to do is get comfortable with the usb-c on the bottom and fix the windows preview.
  6. I use a number of manual focus 3rd party and vintage lenses I use on my x-e3. I never set the Mount Adaptor Focal Length. What does this setting do and would it affect my results? I've not been unhappy with the results ... so why is this even a thing? When would/should I use it?
