  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

    rickc, on the 16-80mm lens you need to set the aperture ring to the 'A' setting (auto). Now, with the exposure mode set to manual you will find the front dial adjusts the aperture. If you take the lens aperture ring off of 'A' then only the lens ring adjusts aperture. Best wishes, DaveC.

    Welcome rickc, I too was new to Fuji when I got my X-S10 and 16-80mm last December. It is a great camera and lens combo. Point 1. To wake up the camera just half press the shutter button but keep it pressed for a second or too and it will wake up. When half pressed you will feel the IBIS doing its thing , thats OK, just keep it pressed till it wakes up. Point 2. Set the X-S10 to M mode on the mode dial and you will have aperure on the front dial and shutter speed on the rear dial. Then set the iso to Auto, Press the iso button on the top plate and use the joy stick to scroll down to the auto iso settings. The user manual does explain the auto iso settings quite well (the pdf that is). Note you can also re-assign the top left dial to exposure compensation if you like that as well. I have been using these settings just lately to photograph butterflies at high shutter speeds. I came from using Canon and Nikon cameras and find the image quality is outstanding and hope you continue to enjoy the camera. Best wishes DaveC.
  13. Victor, you should consider the X-S10 with a 16-80mm zoom. Probably the best travel combo in the Fuji range. I have owned one since last December and love it. You may not like the idea if you are a dedicated Fuji user with all the manual dials but something with the XT4 image quality, IBIS and lightness, you cannot go wrong. I know it is not perfect for Vlogging but as a photographer I am not interested in the video aspect of cameras. Check out the test reviews on-line. Good luck, Dave.
  14. That is an interesting idea but I do use various film sims quite a lot so would miss the ability to adjust film sims using the top left dial. The problem with this camera is that it has so many useful facilities and not enough dials or buttons for everything. But then what camera does. The X-S10 does have a lot of dials and buttons and I love it.
  15. Mine arrived yesterday, it was worth waiting for.
  16. Thanks for your replies, looks like when I am shooting birds or wildlife I should just use a high iso setting (1600, 3200 etc. ) and adjust as needed. This seems a strange decision by Fuji but perhaps they have their reasons. Thanks again.
  17. Minimum shutter speed seems to be limited to 1/500 sec when setting auto iso. For bird photography I would like to use 1/1000 sec. Is 1/500 sec the limit for the X-S10? Appreciate it if any one knows.
  18. I have the X-S10. Your list needs updating but I am sure you already know that.
  19. I ordered one in March and am still waiting.
  20. I use On1 and am very happy with it. The file management is very effective. I shoot jpeg and RAW in my XS-10 and like the fact that I can create a virtual copy of jpegs or RAW files for editing. Download a trial of the On1 Photo Raw software and watch some of their tutorial videos.
  21. I also have found no way of formatting the memory card other than through the main menu. It should be possible to add it to My Menu at least but it cannot be done at the moment. Frustrating.
  22. Engeltje, the cameras histogram works perfectly, I use the histogram all the time. Dave.
  23. You lucky people. In the UK we are still waiting for the lens, predicted for early May. Believe it when I see it. I cannot wait to get my one.
  24. I use X-S10 compressed RAF files (lossless) with On1 2021 and have no problem.
  25. I have just looked at Würzburg, Germany on line and it looks like an amazing place for photography. Old buildings, fantastic bridges over the river. The possible projects are endless. What about the bridges of Wurzburg, day night, different weather and seasons. You talk about the agriculture, how about a farming project. find a local farmer willing to let you on site. Farmers use amazing machinery which is always photogenic, especially in B&W. It is too easy to dismiss your home town because it is so familiar. Believe me, I live by the sea and have thousands of images of the same stretch of beach, you have to work at it to make it interesting. Good luck and enjoy your photography.
