  1. My copy of the X100F is very sharp at f/8 and wider apertures. Perhaps the problem is too slow of a shutter speed for handheld shooting or other technique issues?
  2. You know what they say about shooting with just one focal length: Good points - but I'm still not sure who "they" are, even after all these years...
  3. From Peta Pixel comes the story of a guy's Sony a7R II sensor being destroyed by the laser form a self-driving car - https://petapixel.com/2019/01/12/ma...ar-laser/?mc_cid=14397f87b2&mc_eid=08903530b5 This made me start thinking. There are a lot more lasers in use these days other than those in self-driving cars; as laser based technology proliferates, things could easily go sideways for digital camera users. As best as I can tell from the article, the camera's sensor was struck directly by the laser while the power was on in the camera. I am wondering if digital camera sensors are at risk only when they are turned on? Are the sensors safe if the camera is turned off? Will a lens cap protect the sensor from a laser strike? Will we have to start carrying our cameras around in big, unwieldy Faraday cage cases with lead lining to protect the sensors from laser strikes??
  4. This is the same kind of twattery that we encountered back in the late 80s to early 90s during the days of film. People who had no clue about any aspect of photography would not hire someone to shoot a job with a 35mm camera - it had to be medium format. Why stop at medium format? Why not only hire photographers who shoot with 8x10 in cameras? Of course, 11x14 beats 8x10 for image quality; why not demand an 11x14 inch camera? ๐Ÿ™„
  5. I suspect that arbitrary requirements such as this are put in place by people who are not photographers and are ignorant about sensor size, ISO and image quality. They demand cameras with 24x36mm sensors, and for what? To print 1x1.5 inch photos in real estate promotional magazine or to put on a website? That's just laughable. Uninformed people who "know" they are right about something they are ignorant of are next to impossible to educate.
  6. Hello, everyone. I am a soon to be new Fuji X100F user - word on the street is that Santa has got a black X100F in his bag for me. ๐Ÿ˜Š This will be my first Fuji camera but I am familiar with Fuji lenses as my Hasselblad XPAN II has the 45mm f/4 lens made by Fuji. Actually, the XPAN cameras are technically Fujis as they were made by Fuji and sold under the Hasselblad label. So the X100F will be my second Fuji, I suppose. Still lurking in the back of my mind is the thought of one day acquiring a Fuji GX617 - I have always had a thing for that wondrous behemoth of a camera. Perhaps that will be my third Fuji...
