    Chrisrm7 reacted to mrPeter in X-T30 Custom settings White balance R and B adjustment   
    You can "copy" the adjustments to the white balance in the custom settings but.. it will apply to all instances of white balance preset of that type like f.e. cloudy +2R -5B. Every time you choose white balance "cloudy" from another recipe you also have +2R -5B adjustments.
    If you normally never use one of the three custom white balance settings and you can set a proper white balance with it then you have three settings to choose from for your custom recipes. I am going to give it a try coming weekend.

    Chrisrm7 got a reaction from CatsAreGods in Fujifilm cam remote app file transfer   
    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…

    Ironically (or not...) I had the opposite experience. Transfer to the app was so slow that I discovered the resize option and happily turned it on. Now I can quickly get images for social media or family/friends and even edit them on my phone while geotagging them and automatically backing them up via Google Photos, then save the high-res original stuff for proper processing on my desktop.

    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

    Chrisrm7 reacted to Herco in I Bought a New Fuji GFX 50r ... need a little help   
    Provia is indeed the most standard film simulation of all. When you use that as a starting point and create a custom profile dialing down all highlight, shadow and color settings to -1 or -2 you get a very flat profile in jpegs. You can also set the screen to 'Natural Live View' in the Setup>Screen Setting menu (switch it to ON). That way it will not display film simulations on screen (just monochrome and sepia when selected).
    Note that when you select a film simulation (any) that information is also stored in the RAW file. Some RAW-convertors use that for display purposes when importing the RAW file. You can easily bypass that by selecting the required ICC profile and curve. In Capture One by default the RAW image will be displayed using the selected film simulation (camera specific ICC profile and curve on AUTO). When you want to see the pure RAW image in Capture One you should select LINEAR as a curve, You can default this in the import dialogue.

    Sadly yes, it’s going to wipe out the lens fund! My MacBook is so slow and I get a notification saying I have no memory left when all I’ve done is open LR. It’s really slow to edit and I don’t have the patience 😂 I bought it before I was interested in photography so didn’t think about bigger memory.

    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!

    I think some other manufacturers do it too, certainly Olympus does but I think you need to be pretty committed to buying afterwards and don’t think you have the same pressure with Fuji. 

    I’ve used Lenses for Hire a few times and there isn’t a deposit to pay, their service is great. Handy if you’re going away and need a different lens but don’t want to buy it.

    Hi, I'm relatively new to the Fuji X System having shot with a Nikon D200 and then more recently a Nikon D610. However, I recently bought an XE2 with the 18-55mm and 10-24mm lenses for travelling and have been trying the Fuji out for some landscape work. This is one of the Forth Bridge at sunrise - shot in RAW and processed with Adobe Lightroom and finished in Perfect Effects:

    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 👍🏽

    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.

    Hi from Scotland!
    Came to Fujifilm (X-T30) from Canon (5D mkII) about a year ago and haven’t looked back. I’m really enjoying the X-T30 now i have it set right for me. 
    Been working on a budget so went down the adapted vintage lens route but, for me at least, it’s not the way forward. 
    I’m mostly a landscape guy and i find the old glass doesn’t quite have the resolving power for anything more than a few meters away so sticking to Fujifilm lenses for that! In the right hands though and used in the right style the vintage lenses could be used to great effect, i don’t doubt it. 
    I shoot in full manual mode to force me to slow down and take my time. Almost everything is tripod based (Gitzo carbon) and i use both Capture one and Lightroom. 
    Looking forward to being part of the Fujifilm community which seems to be growing steadily and sharing some images and info!
    Chris
