  1. The Fuji App is a constant source of frustration. I've given up using it even though is was improved a while ago. The book that @Olaf W. recommended is the best chance of getting it to work.
  2. No, there is in fact an XF10 from Fuji. It's a compact camera: https://fujifilm-x.com/global/products/cameras/xf10/
  3. It's probably the built-in battery that needs replacement. Not the main one that you remove and charge, but the one built-in that powers the memory in the camera. Long periods of inactive storage with drained main batteries may affect the quality of this back-up battery. The retailer where you bought the camera should be able to replace it, or otherwise a camera repair shop.
  4. No worries, C1 will definitely support the M1 chip set. It'd be 'suicide' for them not to. Due to Rosetta 2 the current version of C1 already works great on M1 macbooks (so I've seen on someone else's brand new one). I personally wait for the 16 inch M1(X). Forums are usually the place where people complain, so I wouldn't read too much into that. I've had to use customer support from C1 two or three times and I have no complaints. Very quick and professional. Even on the bug I reported, I got a follow-up request from their product dept. I've never had that with Adobe LR in all these years
  5. DAM stands for Digital Asset Management and is indeed the Library/Catalogue function in LR and C1. LR has indeed some advantages here for users who seek very detailed filter and keyword features. However, C1 comes pretty close for most users. You can migrate your LR catalogues to C1 and it retains all keyword and album functions. For the very large catalogues and advanced filter options Photo Mechanic is a very good addition. When you work in projects (like most professionals do) C1 has another option which is called Sessions. I suggest to view the online C1 tutorial Catalogues vs. S
  6. As for laptop performance I only have experience with macOS. On my macbook C1 seems to be a bit faster than LR and it is certainly coded with more efficiency in mind. Most Adobe products are very memory intense and make less use of multicore processor capabilities on the macOS platform. I also have ON1 Photo Raw 2020 installed and however that doesn't work with a catalogue, it seems much slower and processor intensive than C1. I'd recommend you download C1 and start a trial subscription first. As for tutorials, C1 has an excellent support section with lots of good videos. Very practical a
  7. It's a very good deal actually. The X-Pro2 is my personal favourite Fuji camera. I've used the X-Pro3 for a couple of days but decided not to switch for a few reasons. First, there's no visible improvement in image quality. The new sensor/processor are mainly an improvement in continuous AF whereas I mostly use single AF for my personal work with the X-Pro2. Secondly, the OVF is a bit brighter and larger on the X-Pro3, but it lacks the dual magnification of the X-Pro2. Therefore, you can't actually use the OVF with lenses shorter than 23mm or longer than 50mm. The EVF of the X-Pro3 is bet
  8. Only if you frequently shoot in inclining weather or plan a trip into the Sahara desert, WR makes some sense. Usually with a little bit of care you can perfectly use a non-WR lens in rainy weather too. My most used lens is the 23/f1.4 (also non-WR) and it's been in downpours in India and didn't give up.
  9. Capture One indeed doesn't support the X100-range for tethered shooting. In Fuji X Acquire you need to switch to PC Shoot or USB mode in the connection menu of the camera, as you apparently do. Note that Fuji X Acquire doesn't support MacOS Big Sur yet. You can also try the wifi connection mode instead of the USB mode.
  10. Unless the WB is ‘overwritten’ by a WB set in the preset in LR, LR can use the stored WB in the RAW-conversion. It will be applied to the displayed image when importing, unless replaced by a WB set in a LR preset. To my knowledge LR behaves similar to Capture One in that aspect. To use the WB set by the camera, select WB As Shot in the import profile.
  11. The D7500 is quite a recent model and certainly one of the best APS-C DSLRs on the market. In terms of image quality for stills it can match any Fuji X-camera (given good Nikkor lenses). Next to the reduced battery life and the EVF (which is an ‘older’ 2.36 million dots model in the X-S10) you will probably notice a slower AF-C performance, as the D7500 is blazing fast esp. in very low light. Only when you plan to shoot video, the X-S10 would make a lot of sense. The IBIS is of course nice to have, but the VR in most Nikkor lenses is also quite good.
  12. There are indeed rumors about a new version of the GFX50. Both R as well as S. The R hasn’t been as successful as Fujifilm had hoped for, hence the early price reductions. Bear in mind that the GFX was intended to capture part of the full-frame market. After initial praise and good sales, the numbers dropped quickly. Depending on the market, the price of the R has been reduced in steps by $1500-$2000 since introduction. Professional photographers mostly prefer the S model with the ability to mount a tilting viewfinder. and a grip. Hence the prices of the S remained high for a longer period.
  13. Capturing these colors is difficult because our eyes are more susceptible to the longer waves of red light whereas a camera sensor is equally sensitive to all wave lengths within the visible array. Next to that a camera sensor cannot cope with the same dynamic range (dark-bright contrast) that our eyes can handle. Sunset colors are therefore often a bit washed-out or faded on regular shot images. First of all make sure you don’t overexpose the image. It’s easier to brighten the shadows than correct blown-out highlights. When you shoot jpeg and don’t want to adjust the image in post proces
  14. Correct. WB only affects the jpeg, but the setting is also stored in the metadata of the raw file. Software like Lightroom and Capture One use this setting as a starting point for their raw conversion (WB as shot). The WB is also used for the small thumbnail that is inside of every raw file for display purposes.
  15. I would be surprised if Fuji would launch a monochrome version of their GFX-line. Unlike Leica, Fuji doesn’t have their own facility to manufacture image sensors and to my knowledge there are no cropped medium format monochrome out on the market. Of course they could have something custom-made at one of the manufacturers, but that would be very expensive given the small market. APS-C sized monochrome sensors however are available (esp. for astrophotography), so a monochrome X-camera might be more likely. Of course you can always go to maxmax.com and have your GFX converted. That however only i
