  1. I use both. LR as my catalog management, and C1Pro 20 (PRO) as my develop module. I round trip my Fuji X, and GFX raw files from LR to C1, then back. Takes mere moments and I'm on an old machine (2012) iMac. I was just on another thread and some are saying C1Pro v21 is buggy (?). Not sure what's going on there but I think I'll wait to upgrade from v20.
  2. Wow! I had no idea C1Pro v21 was that bad! I'll have to look at that before upgrading..
  3. Since upgrading to IOS 14.2 I've had issues using the stupid app. Sometimes it connects, and sometimes it doesn't. I'll keep plugging at it as sooner or later they'll fix it. And, I am wondering if Nikon, Sony, Canon, etc have a similar app. If they do, and they work, then shame on Fuji. If they do not, then in my eyes, Fuji has a leg up on other manufacturers -- doesn't justify the problems we are experiencing but keep in mind this app is a "backburner - when we get time to get to it" kind of app. To me, it's more of a gimmick than an actual tool.
  4. Regardless of the system used exposing to the right (ETTR) is (usually) always a good idea. I see you mention JPEG's. I'm wondering you may be thinking that it would wise to push the exposure to the right? If you are shooting JPEG then in my opinion you "could" but I personally would not push it to the right as far as I may pus a raw file. If you are going to use jpegs out of the camera you need to nail it when you shoot so you may not have as much leeway as when shooting raw, or as I do, Jpeg fine + Raw together. I have found the Silkypix, the Fuji Raw processor, CaptureOne all do a p
  5. That is not possible. As a matter of fact, Raw Studio, if I'm not mistaken, will only work with the raw files generated by the camera that was used to create the image.
  6. Fuji is definitely coming with a Monochrome. Guaranteed.
  7. One of my VERY best friends is a Leica Guy. I know people say these Leica guys are stuck up, and hung up on gear but not my good friend. He's a photographer. Has taken, dropped, had repaired, shot, got wet, etc EVERY one of his six Leica bodies - including the Monochrome. The Leica store in NYC LOVE him. He walked in last year for a Leica branded polarizer, and walked with their only cop of of a think a 90mm lens that had just come out. It was five figures deep that one~. He also has several 80 megapixel + higher Hassy medium formats with some serious glass. Last Christmas he bought f
  8. Hey everyone, Hope everyone is safe and well. I'd like to know if anyone here has any experience with the Laowa 17mm F4 for the GFX system. I'd like to know how it would handle on my 50R. I've been looking at the Laowa in order to save about a grand over the 23mm Fuji lens. Any input is appreciated.
  9. This happened to me in very cold Maine weather last November and December with the 32-64. Since then, I haven't had an issue.
  10. You might want to set up back button autofocus. There are tutorials online to get this setup. Once you press the focus that's it. You should not have to focus again unless you change the focal length/zoom in or out or accidentally move the camera. Back Button Autofocus for Fuji. I've been using that for my previous Nikons, and now all my Fuji cameras for ages.
  11. I use 10stop ND's for landscape work and I can focus just fine with my XT2, XH1. If I stack my polarizer on top of the ND the cameras may "hunt" a bit. Not sure why others here are having issues...
  12. Own twelve bags now. And that's down from the 14 I've sold. My two favorite backpacks are the CHEAP Amazon basics camera backpack for under 20.00 US which I've used for seven years now. And my newest addition, much to the consternation of my much better half, is a Manfrotto BeFree camera backpack. The BEST part of the Be Free is the camera compartment opens FROM THE REAR so when you put it down in the muds, or snow, or water, and then put it back on, your back stays clean. So far, this bag is my all-time favorite. It has compartments for my camera gear, drone, laptop up to 15", iPad, and
  13. That's a tough choice for me! I would NEVER give up my 35mm 1.4. Without a doubt that one is a keeper. The second lens... 16-55, or the 16 1.4, or the 18-55. Not sure here
  14. First of all the upgrades are for the positive most times. It's a Fuji thing. Compared to other camera companies they are always updating and making their cameras better. Not sure about the XT4 freezing issues but I'm sure they've been addressed in firmware. However I use the XT1, XT2, XH1, and the GFX system and I've NEVER had an issue.
  15. Did not work for me. However, I was able to use my SB700's and 800's on my XE1. No go on the XT series, or the XH1. I just gave up and went to Good flash and triggers.
