  1. Just looking through the manual IS Mode for still photography cannot be assigned to the Quick menu (don't know why) but it can be assigned to a function button or a touch function. You could also try assigning it to My Menu, it is not clear from the manual whether that will work. I do not have my camera to hand at the moment to try it.
  2. I use the WR kit and have a perfect lens cap. I use a lens cap from my old Olympus OM1 film camera lens, it clips inside of the filter thread. It is nice to reference my old film camera in this way. Just find a lens with the same thread size as the WR kit. Good luck, Dave.
  3. My X100v has a Fuji Weather-Resistant Adaptor ring and filter. I would like to fit a small lens hood that screws into the thread of the filter enabling me to retain the water resistance. Does any one know of such a lens hood. I did a search on lens hoods but could find nothing like this on the forum. Appreciate any suggestions.
  4. There are a lot of good cameras out there but try out the XS-10 with the Fuji XF16-80mm zoom. I switched to this set up from Nikon back in September 2020 and the one lens is ideal for holidays. I have large hands and have no problem with it.
  5. I have hesitated to reply to your query as it is a difficult subject. We have all gone through finding our first suitable post processing software and it is not easy. We are overwhelmed by the number of options but you eventually realise you do need them. I am sure that most forum members would recommend the software that they use and they all do a good job. The problem we have as new users of pp software is in knowing what we want to do to the photograph in question. The skill is in knowing what needs doing. Finding the tools to use in any software is the easier part. The software suppliers and other third parties such as Scott Kelby provide many on-line video tutorials which are well worth watching. I found that my local library was helpful in that I could borrow books on the subject of processing photos even though they were usually old and applied to some version of Photoshop that I did not use. In spite of this they allowed me to understand what a photo needed. Just dont try to understand all the tools, it is the 'What needs doing' that is important. I currently use On1 Photo Raw and ACDSee though I did use Lightroom in the past. Many on this forum use Capture One. I think we all benefit from a software product that has built in Photo Management which the above have. If you know a fellow photographer then they may be your best source of help as there is nothing better than a guiding hand. You can always post messages on this forum for help. To help you select a piece of software I recommend downloading a trial first, but be mindful of the full cost as some are much more expensive than others. I would not recommend PS elements, I started with it and wished I had not as it is far more complex than you think and has a poor user interface in my opinion. I do not know if this has been helpful, I hope it has, Dave.
  6. Set your camera to shoot RAW and JPEG (best quality). Now you will see the film sims or other filters in the jpeg file. RAW files are not affected by film sims or other filters.
  7. I have the X-S10 and the X100v and find the WB depends on the time of day and the weather (sunny or cloudy). At sunrise and sunset I find the AWB a touch cool for my liking so I set the WB to Daylight or Cloudy. During the day I set the WB to Daylight. At night (dark with street lights) I find the AWB perfect.
  8. I have not tried to repeat your problem with my XS-10 but have you considered whether the blurriness is due to movment or focussing. Are you using auto focus or manually focussing. Try it with manual focus. I am also happy to be corrected but I was under the impression that the XS-10 sensed when the camera was on a tripod (or unmoving surface) and disabled the IBIS.
  9. I will be most impressed if the Tamron is as good as the Fuji 70-300. I use the Fuji 70-300 on my X-S10 and think it is brilliant. I also have a Fuji X100v to take out with me so if I need a wide angle I have the best of both worlds. You clearly need to wait for some reviews of the Tamron lens to help you make your mind up.
  10. Thankyou all for the replies. I have installed the Fuji filter kit and have found that my old Olympus OM1 49mm lens caps fit on the filter perfectly. I now have the excellent X100v with a momento of my early film photography years. A very happy Fuji user.
  11. Thankyou for your reply. It has been a while since I posted this request and I have worked out back button focussing. I use single focussing in conjunction with the AEL/AFL button. I do appreciate your reply however, it was good of you. Dave.
  12. Cli, the only way to tell is to download a trial copy of the software and try it out. I personally use On1 photo raw editor with built in organiser. I downloaded its trial last year and compared its output to that of Capture One before making my decision. Good luck with your decision.
  13. I have just put my name down for a Fuji X100v as a carry all camera in support of my X-S10. Since purchasing the X-S10 I have fallen in love with Fuji cameras and think that the X100v will be a great pocketable/small bag camera. I have a few questions that I have been unable to answer by searching on-line. 1. How does one set up the camera for back button fucus? 2. If I fit the water proofing adapter and filter is the lens cap still useable? 3. How important is it that a lens hood is fitted? Does the lens need it? I have seen a number of videos of pro photographers using the X100v without a lens hood. 4. Any other advice would be appreciated. Many thanks, Dave.
  14. I know the discussions about software are on-going but why do Fuji users limit their software choices. There is other software out there. Download a trial and see if it works for you. I personally use On1 Photo RAW 2021 and it does a beautiful job with the raw and jpeg files from my X-S10. I also need no other software as it provides full management capability as well as layering, focus bracketing etc.
  15. I am sorry but I cannot support the current trend for full frame sensors. Thankfully one manufacturer is not chasing full frame. I was a Canon and Nikon user. The Canon and Nikon full frame mirrorless cameras are too heavy and expensive which is why I switched to Fuji. Do not force Fuji to waste its R&D on full frame. Bigger sensors result in more mega-pixels needing more powerful PCs to edit the images meaning more expense. The images from my X-S10 are as good as the images from my friends Canon R6.
