  1. Here is my step by step video on the firmware fix. hope it helps:
  2. Hello Everyone. I used to be a pro photographer and have been using the Fujifilm system for 4 years now. I own the Fujifilm X-T3 and the X-T30 with a whole bunch of lenses. I love the whole system. for the lenses, my favorites are the 16 and 23 f/1.4, the 35mm f/2 and the 50-140 f/2.8. What I love about Fuji is their native glass. Really top notch! I specialize in portrait photography, product photography, artistic nudes and I really want to get into macro. I also have a blog about photography with a lot of camera reviews (much of the gear reviews are Fuji): https://jacquesgaines.com/blog/ I am working on a whole new site on artistic nudes called https://newartistc.com/ It will feature a blog dedicated to the artistic process. By the way if you guys have anything you want to review or look at, feel free to ask There is also a YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/jacquesgaines . Yup I am one of those guys too. Glad to be a part of this community.
  3. My God this was eye opening. I just so happened to be one of those YouTubers. I try my best to be as objective as possible in my reviews but must admit that to survive on YouTube and actually make it on the platform, Youtubers eventually get too tempted by affiliate links and the like. As a person doing this from the other side I would strongly advise all of you to not expect a whole bunch of objectivity from a YouTuber with a great deal of success. Why? Well basically all YouTubers start with good intention and realize at one point that giving away info does not pay the bills. If the Youtuber is paying the bills really well? . . . You do the math. I am not offering an excuse for us, I am just making the observation. Also, just putting this out there, look for videos about the process and less about the gear. When I look at my stats and see that my video on gear has gotten 20,000 views and my video about a natural light photo shoot with the X-T3 has only gotten 400 views. . . You can guess what the next video is going to be about. You guys should not be looking at YouTube for your next gear choice and more as a way to be inspired and motivated to go out and shoot. I will not change YouTube nor do I claim to have the best channel out there but the answer to this question all depends on what you want to get out of the channel. Cheers....Now go out and shoot!
