  1. what was the shutter speed? it was probably faster than the trigger could sync
  2. for surfing and shallow diving take a look at the dicapac cases
  3. It seems you need a fujica x to fuji x adapter They’re not expensive, only about 25$
  4. mode: auto? you should be in aperture priority mode to change the aperture manually and have the other settings adjust automatically
  5. Because the camera is still made to take a correct exposure. With low light it will first decrease the shutter speed to the minimum you’ve set, then increase the iso and if it’s still underexposed it will decrease the shutter speed again below your set limit, but it will never increase the iso above the limit
  6. Same happens on my x-e3, canon M and m5. It’s an inconvenience but far far away from what you call a design disaster it’s a limitation of small bodies. Some mechanical calculations were made and that ended up being the best support point
  7. don't know about the second hand market in the Netherlands, but in Austria a used XF35 is 50% more than a new XC35 and other than the outside shell and aperture ring, there is no difference in optics, so there won't be any difference in IQ to answer to the OP: it depends what you shoot. a fast prime is always nice to have but if you don't use it because you prefer the zoom, then it's irrelevant how good it is
  8. original post, now edited, stated 18-55 for the 16-55 i have no clue why it might shift exposure
  9. i don't think any shop owner would be happy with you sticking a huge plunger on their window...so the polarizer solution is, at least, more elegant
  10. a circular polarizer should eliminate the reflections, if that's what you want otherwise try using them to your advantage by moving around a bit to find shadows cast on the glass through which you can see inside
  11. i wouldn't recommend using a flash in a cave. it can easily disturb any wildlife in there, even if you don't see any animals in tourist caves (where you have to pay for a ticket or there is a guided tour) it's forbidden to use a flash (with some exceptions) because increased levels of light can stimulate the growth of moss
  12. No, the product is bad FOR YOU. Others who have tried it loved it and others have not. There is no perfect product for everyone. You give so few details about the problems that it's hard to take the post seriously. Also, i had to read through all of it to figure out what you're complaining about. And why would CEOs read a random internet post about a (maybe but unlikely) faulty unit?
  13. well...one reason would be that i want to try a lens with an aperture control ring and secondly, i really don't like how the XC version looks...not an objective reason but a reason nonetheless
  14. i might have the opportunity to get for my X-E1 (and in the future X-E3 or 4) a fuji 35 1.4 second hand for about 300€ here where i live...i don't know the actual condition of the lens, the person selling it states it's working perfectly.. my question would be: is that offer too good to be true? might there be some hidden flaws or defects? should i rather go for the f2 version? should i consider the viltrox 33?
  15. pixel shift would be nice to be able to get higher resolution files but from what i've read the x-trans pixel pattern makes it harder to achieve this compared to the bayer arrangement... the GFX100 i think does have pixel shift but i'm not sure whether it's bayer or x-trans
  16. i think you might be confusing processing with compositing (manipulating) even the jpeg your camera gives out has processing. the film simulations ARE processing. the simple raw file is ugly an unappealing without any kind of processing
  17. the jump from 16 to 26 is definitely NOT modest...i noticed a significant difference going from 20mp to 24mp at the moment, the highest resolution in a crop system is the canon M6 mk 2/canon 90d, at 32mp, or you could go the olympus MFT route with their high res mode, which takesmultiple exposures and combines them for something like 60mp as far as i remember if resolution is of the utmost importance, go the GFX route, otherwise you will be plenty happy with 26mp
  18. yes and no IMO, sony started this craze for video specs in photo cameras - yes, canon 5d2 was the first to have decent video specs but sony kept pushing more and more outrageous specs. if a camera doesn't film 4k now it a POS, although the processing power needed to edit 4k is out of the reach of many people, not to mention that most people (including me) watch content in 1080 remaining competitive and relevant on the market now requires manufacturers to make, basically, hybrid video/photo cameras. reviews matter, if only a little bit, in a company's stock value. i really believe the widespread appreciation of fuji's x100v, for example, resulted in a stock price increase, and that's what matters ultimately
  19. i think there are still many more pure photographers out there (only interested in photos, that is) than hybrid shooters however, the latter are quite vocal and the platform they're on - youtube - is encouraging video rather than photo shooting whereas photographers have many platforms on which to show their work but none are even at half the level youtube is at, meaning monetisation, encouraging originality, dealing with fraud and so on that is why, in my opinion, all camera companies have to and will embrace video features to be able to sell their products (forget leica, they are too niche)...we who don't care about video just have to suck it up
  20. to some extent ;)) anyway, this is the camera i'm also waiting for from fuji
  21. no, you're not alone. i also don't care one bit about video simply because i lack the time to spend for editing...BUT...at this point when everyone is a youtuber and online reviews matter, any new camera must have at least some of the modern features: touchscreen, some kind of articulation of said screen, some video features i'll give you 2 examples of more targeted cameras: first: canon RP: so much bashing and hate for that camera for not having whatever 4k and 24fps (i think it has 25 and 30 or whatever). all that hate towards a STILLS camera pressured canon into releasing a firmware update for 24fps. second: sigma FP: a clearly video oriented camera bashed left and right for not having a grip or a mechanical shutter for stills the perfect camera does not exist and any camera, old or new, will never be for anyone and everyone...companies must try and target a specific market with specific features in order to sell their product and make a profit and as the latest numbers show, there is a market for cheap(er than x-pro3) rangefinder style mirrorless cameras
  22. naah...not including a touchscreen and decent video specs would be a shot in the foot for fuji and the x-e line... ibis and x-t4 video specs would increase price too much and most probably size as well..
  23. i kind of also think it's bull...considering they moved the x-t4 more towards video and the x-pro3 is very very niche with that weird screen...although fuji know their numbers best... i don't get why the viewfinder has to be on top and in the middle? especially on mirrorless...is it just for the looks?
  24. i'm 90% sure there will be an X-E4 the X-Pro3 and X-T4 have both been more focused towards professional use. i believe fuji should have a competitor for the sony a6000 line in the form of their X-E line. it will probably not get IBIS like the X-T4 but will get the same features as the new X100v just my opinion...and my hope...
  25. have you tried turning off the OIS? at those shutter speeds you shouldn't need it and it might be misbehaving...
