  1. Sebastian in front of a Christmas tree, likely deciding who he is about to savage!
  2. Another from Glen Lyon last year
  3. The Roman Bridge in Glen Lyon, Scotland last autumn
  4. I have an X-T30 and wondered the same thing as well as almost every good film simulation recipe requires the shift adjusted. Not sure about the X-T3 but fairly certain you can store white balance shift in your custom settings on the X-T4. It must just be one of the corners cut to make the X-T30 cheaper. I use the renaming of the film simulation to remind me what it should be, for example: Kodachrome64 +2R -5B You still have to physically change it yourself but it speeds the process up a little. Even the ability to add a white balance shift shortcut to the Q menu would be great for me.
  5. Only really started acquiring vintage lenses recently so currently have the following: Konica Hexanon AR 28mm f/3.5, 50mm f/1.7 & 135mm f/2.8 Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 Distagon Asahi Takumar 55mm f/2 I also have the Samyang 12mm f/2 The feel of the Takumar is unbeaten, it’s so smooth! The Zeiss is close but not quite the same, proper heavy German engineering though. The Hexanons are solid but the aperture rings feel clumsy to me, nice feeling focus though and great image quality. My 50mm actually has a short but deep scratch close to the centre of the front element. Only cost £5 so i thought why not, use it as a trial and buy a good one later. Truth is, i honestly can’t see any effect from the scratch at all in final images! The wishlist would probably include a really special 50mm prime and something around 80-90mm, recommendations?! I had a Nikon ai-s 80-200 f/4 zoom back in the Canon days, it was amazing for a zoom. I believe the Zeiss Contax Vario-Sonnar 80-200 is a great vintage zoom as well for a similar price to the Nikon. The Nikon ai-s 20mm performed brilliantly well on my 5D mkii as well.
  6. Hi Keith, i use K&F Concept adapters and, for the price, can’t fault them to be honest. There is the tiniest bit of play between adapter and camera in the exakta mount one i have but the others are great. Shipping from China to UK was around 10 days for me (even with covid going on). All dumb adapters so using them is as manual an experience as possible. I don’t know if you get an adapter which would allow Canon EF lenses to be used, you’d need the electronics to adjust aperture i assume. They exist for the Sony A7Rii i believe so potentially Fujifilm also. Google is probably your friend for that!
  7. It’s briefly mentioned in the camera manual but it didn’t even occur to me that it might be a setting somewhere! Honestly didn’t see much of a difference in transfer speed, that being said, it was just a single file, a batch may be a different story entirely…
  8. I’ve only just stumbled on this information on another forum and thought i’d share it here. I wouldn’t normally use the camera remote app to transfer images to my phone but at the moment i’m between imacs and left with no alternative! So, this may not come as news to any of you but the camera is set by default to reduce jpeg file size to a maximum of 3mb for sending via the app. Took me a good long while to figure out why my images looked crap, even questioned the resolution of my phone screen! :D Anyway, if you want to get the full size files then it’s tucked away in setup menu > connection setting > general settings > resize image for smartphone > OFF I reprocessed a RAW file on the camera and sent it again, 14.6mb as opposed to 1.1mb! Life changing :D
  9. A new macbook will eat into the lens fund! 😅 i’m going for a mac mini and using the tv as a monitor temporarily, cue weird display issues… 😂
  10. I will have to wait to use Capture One when i get my new mac, i don’t think it is compatible with the new Apple M1 chip 😐 so it’ll be exclusively Lightroom again for a while!
  11. Fujifilm give free loans of all their cameras and lenses for 2 days (just a thumping great deposit to pay in some cases). you can hire them for longer for a reasonable sum. i haven’t seen that from other companies, they seem to have the right way of thinking!
  12. There will hopefully be a 25% discount in springtime, the express version however is free forever! Just limited tools 😐
  13. I enjoy capture one more and seem to get better results with it to be honest. if you go on youtube there’s a Fujifilm ambassador called Andy Mumford who has done a good video on using Capture One 👍🏽
  14. I think if i was to start over knowing what i know now i’d have the 16mm f1.4, the 35mm f1.4 and the 50-140mm and i’d be covered. Might start putting all the vintage lenses on Ebay and i’d almost have enough for the 16mm!! Lots of potential for seascapes and things in the north east, i’m a wee bit jealous of that! I get to the Auchmithie harbour occasionally and Boarhills just past St Andrews is a good spot.
