    SBK got a reaction from doubleudet in Who's opinion do you most trust on Youtube about Fuji?   
    Adding to the already listed names above, I do find videos by Roman Fox and Booray Perry helpful to me as I recently move from Canon FF DSLR to Fujifilm X series.

    Way to show the world Fujifilm!!!
    Good for #Fujifilm. Proud supporter and very happy to see that they did not crumble to #Ransomware hacker demands. More companies should do this. The best way to eliminate these type of attacks.

    SBK got a reaction from 5Six in Ken Rockwell X-T2 Review... X-T2 not really for Pro's   
    I watched Ken Rockwell's review of the X-T4 on youtube. See link below. He was finding almost everything wrong with the X-T4 (which is kinda good to know if they are really wrong). However, at the 13 minutes 27 seconds mark, he started to complain that the red color of the letter "A" on the speed dial was too dark. At that point, he has TOTALLY lost credibility as far as I am concerned. It seems like he was paid by some corporation to trash the XT4.
    I won't buy the XT4 because I will miss many good shots due to the letter "A" on the speed dial being too dark ! LOL !!

    If your current camera does everything you want it to do for you, it's not obsolete even if Fujifilm comes out with the X-Pro7 or X-T7. Newer cameras always have more and more features that most of us don't need and don't use, especially when we only shoot still photographs.

    Still haven't taken a pic of my X100F yet, but will do. Meanwhile, here's one of my recently acquired X-T2.
    Fujifilm cameras are definitely great !

    No, there shouldn't be any difference, but to be honest, nearly all the camera's I've owned since 2010 have been made in China. The only Japanese camera I've owned is my X-T2. The card compartment failed, so I that got replaced, then 18 months later the main PCB board failed. I've no issues with Chinese gear at all. I think I'd actually prefer a Chinese made camera, given the choice. 20 years ago was probably a different story, but times change. 
    If there's one thing I know,  Japanese consumers really don't like their home brand of camera's made in China, history will tell you why. From Fujifilm's point of view, business is business, if they can save money having camera's made outside of Japan they will. It would be interesting to know if Fuji dealers in Japan sell Japanese made XT-4's?

    I've been told by a Fuji rep. in London that the X-T4's build in Japan were part of the first series (start of production) that was predominantly shipped to the US to overcome trade taxes or kept in Japan (made here sentiment). Goal is to have all the X-T's and 'lower' manufactured in China and the 'flagship' cameras (GFX, X-Pro's and the next X-H) in Japan. There shouldn't be a difference in build quality.

    Welcome !
    Newbie myself to the Fujifilm's world.
    The GFX 100S is a lot of weight to carry around, unless the kind of pictures you want to take requires very high resolution.
    I am transiting from the full-frame world to APS-C to downsize the weight 🙂

    SBK got a reaction from Ketsada UNs in Why do you like Fujifilm?   
    In the film days, i used to buy Velvia and Sensia by batch of 40 rolls and liked them a lot. They were mostly used on Nikon FM2. I then switched to Canon FF DSLR. But carrying a DSLR everyday was a chore. So I was looking for a smaller and well built camera for everyday use. After considering many brands and models, I liked the X100F the most and decided to give Fujifilm camera a first chance. I am very happy I did. So far the Canon R6 has been my first choice for weddings as I need dual-slot SD cards and quieter shutter than my DSLR. I checked the X-T4 at my local shop last week and was very pleased with the metal build of it, so X-T4 is also a serious candidate.
    I'll post a few pics of my X100F later.

    SBK got a reaction from K PRETHVIRAJ in Leaving DSLR and moving to phone photography   
    I too went the other way around.
    I took family pictures on iphone for a few years. Pics quality was quite disappointing. And the choice of lens ? None.
    It all depends on the kind of pics one wants to photograph. For street photography, the phone could be an advantage as the photographer could go unnoticed. But for portraits, studio work, wedding, landscape ... i'd stick with something like the X-T3, X-T4, Xpro3. For portraits, I am looking forward to seeing what the XF 50-140mm f/2.8 can give. I read and heard a lot of good things about it.
    No matter what, keep shooting.
