  1. I would really love to get your ideas on the tameron lens that's supposed to come out next month I am really interested in the lens and I've been also I at 70 to 300 and I'm just a little curious as to how well the camera one will perform compared to that one, and if it would just make more sense to get a Tamron one a few prime lenses that way we can have both of both worlds. One to travel and one too take more decent pictures but what are you guys think what are you what do you think would be the future of the lenses

  2. Hello y'all,

    I've been really interested in getting to know y'all's settings for the C1 through C4. I've been really having a hard time deciding on how to set those up.

    No I did see some recipes something of a cookbook for film simulation and color clarity and things like that, which got me really really interested in them, but don't know what the best way to implement them are.

    I've just been a little bit overwhelmed with how much customization there is on the camera and just wanted to get a little bit of community insight on how you all have been setting up these features on your cameras.

    I getting really excited to bounce ideas from everybody. I love getting ideas on how to better my photography and would love feedback on y'all's unique photo style and how you get your best shots using those custom settings.

  3. Hello everybody my name is Omar I recently got a Fujifilm X-S10 with a 16-80mm kit lens and a Viltrox 23mm lens. I'm really getting to know my camera more intimately little it's taking a little bit of time but I've only had it for 2 weeks. Initially started taking some pictures to kind of understand focal lengths, and how they differ from full frame to APC-S sensors, I did a lot of research into the camera lineup set, and search the as many of their lenses as I could and ultimately decided that I needed a fast prime lens to compliments my zoom lens, so I decided that the 23 mm is the best choice in the type of photography I want to get, which is groups of friends having fun together and enjoying their lives. It is not ultra wide but it is wide enough to get some my photography and a videography into my routine.

    My journey into finding the perfect camera was a long and treacherous one I thought about a lot of cameras and really the difference between full frame and APS-C sensors. For a long time I've been eyeing the Sony a7s2 as it's night capabilities seems to be out of this world, but for something that is essentially a hobby it seems like a lot of money to throw into something that I might not fully commit to so I wanted something that was more reasonably priced but I had all the new features that a camera of this day and age should have. I didn't want something that was not very user friendly and was a few years old because I assumed that it might not be the best option, giving the fact that I'm just a amateur photographer and didn't have any real experience with composition, videography, editing or producing.

    I wanted something that could get my feet wet and work for both videography and photography, something that I could blog with and that has the capabilities found in professional cameras, without completely breaking the bank. I understand that the most important part is the lens and that the camera is only an extension of that, but I still couldn't shake the feeling that I wanted something amazing something to grow with. Of the many cameras that I've researched I've narrowed it down to Sony Canon and Fujifilm.

    THE one thing that really attracted me to the Fujifilm camera was the fact that I was looking for a camera that was unique, and somehow the look really got me curious into the system. No I'm not a nostalgic guy I've never owned a film lens or a old lens but I found it to be the retro look that seem like something that is novelty, something of a characteristic of the brand as they love to keep to their roots. It's it's this and the high praise of YouTubers that gave me a really high work to the camera and the brand. The history behind the film simulations was something which greatly picked my curiosity into the brand. I thought about a Sony and a Canon as a initial buy and a full frame cameras as well, however I wanted something that was a user friendly and compact with good auto settings. I got really familiar with the manual mode that is found in my phone. It was quite robust and it had a few modes of recording that was unique to the LG brand. I wanted something that gave me more control something of a real camera for a very long time, yeah I didn't want something that would tie me down just to manual mode I wanted something that had a good auto mode and that it was playful.

    My goal is to make beautiful impactful images something that captures the moment in rich detail with good composition. I really love night photography of those with long exposures as well as street photography. Ultimately I do see the benefits of a full frame for night photography but more than just a sensor, I wanted something that I can grow with and really experience the joy of just shooting. It was quite difficult to choose the X-S10 over the XT4 or XT3. This camara didn't have the retro look that it first attracted me to the brand, it is not weather sealed, the battery life it's not something to write home about, but somehow the charm was still there. It met every criteria I was looking for and even some that I was not like the ergonomics, the fun shooting modes and the feature specs like flip out screen that really drove home the idea that I can get what is essentially their flagship model on a smaller size with practically most of the features of the XT4.

     No I am still learning and would really love your input and getting to know my cameras hidden tips and tricks, but that would be on a separate thread thank you for listening

    I use an Oppilas Pixel N3 with adapter to 3.5 I have had since I was a Canon guy. It works perfectly in my X-S10 and will wakeup a sleeply camera. About $30 on Amazon - hope this helps.

    Noted, gonna see about it when I'm in need of a shutter release, on another note do you happen to know if the timer setting can be customized to something other than 2 or 10 seconds?

    Hi, DaveC.

    Thank you so much for the really valuable information...very much appreciated!

    On the power off/on, I guess I was being a little too impatient when pressing the shutter. On the auto ISO, I'll definitely give it a try, as that's a pretty important one for me. I have found that the ISO button and joystick pretty easy to reach while looking at the EVF, so maybe there's no reason to reassign the top left dial.

    With only a little time spent with the X-S10 so far, I have found the AF and image quality outstanding, as you noted. Even with the challenges of learning a new system, it's been fun getting to know my new toy!

    Again, thank you for responding to my inquiry. Pentax Forums is a valuable source of information for Pentax users, and it's nice to know Fuji X Forum can provide similar advice and support.

    Cheers!

     

    So a other thing, I saw that your also able to adjust the iso with the scroll wheel in the left after you press the iso button, I found the scrolling with the joystick to slow, was playing with it and was excited when I found it 

  6. Just a quick update. I made quite a rookie mistake. So I want to check the connections settings in the camera and managed to get a couple of things working so the screen isn't black anymore I had it on USB card reader and moved it to tether connection, this managed to solve the initial issue of having the black screen, however some of the settings still have issues so I'm probably going to research a little bit more in post here to kind of answer my own question but a managed to at least get the screen working and the camera 😅

  7. That's kinda funny because I made the same mistake. So to answer it you just scroll to the second page there you will find the difference settings. The one things I saw was a issue with the scenes dial, last time I checked, it does not move the scenes in that mode.

  8. So I went and plugged in my Fuji X-S10 into the gimbal and I found out that I in the app settings it didn't have any support for Fujifilm however it did have a Fuji setting in the gimbal. When I click the different brand in the app it it made the LCD screen black with a white lettering that says USB I have not been able to find in the settings or in the camera away to get out of that and integrate the gimbals settings into the camera is anybody else experiences and is there a solution for this or would I not be able to plug in the gimbal to the Fuji.
