  1. I don't travel with extra crap. No laptop. My iPhone, and MAaaaaaaybe my iPad. I have enough memory cards to shoot 5500 Raw/Fine JPEGS. Once a card is full, it comes out of the camera and the two - camera and sd cards are NEVER, ever together again. My camera and lenses are insured, so I really don't care what happens, but the images, are priceless. So, if I leave my cameras in the hotel room say, and I go out to dinner, the SD card wallet GOES WITH ME wherever I go. I've been using this system since 2002 when I switched to digital and have never lost an image, card, or anything else.
  2. I use think tank 5-battery holder. Holds five Fuji batteries perfectly and it Velcro's shot. When I finish a battery and take out of camera I place it in the pouch terminals facing up. This way I know which I need to charge.
  3. I'm the opposite. I upload EVERY image into LR. My LR cat and ALL my images are stored on an external 8TB. Then I use Capture One Pro to sharpen and Denoise (if need be). Then I re-synch the new images back into LR. Sounds complicated, but it's very quick and simple actually. I believe C1Pro does a 1000% better job with the Fuji raw files. Once I've imported the images in, I use "Backblaze" which is on off-site cloud storage. It is unlimited. For $50.00 US a year my entire Mac, plus my 8 TB of images, totaling about 200,000 images are safe and sound. Plus, I can get to ANY image ANYWHERE with a web connection. Once I've finished editing the images I wish to keep, and submit to my editors and online stock agencies (multiple ones) I then use LR to catalog my images into folders. Hope that helps some.
  4. Thank you. An amazing and beautiful place

  7. I'll preface this by saying that I own TWO copies of the 18-55. Neither has this issue. Have you tried shooting images with the camera on a tripod, at various apertures? I really couldn't see the images on your Google drive all that well.

  10. X100 V? maybe... But why wait? I shot with the XT1 and 2. Waiting for the XT3. Finally bought it!!! Then the XH1 went on sale for 1299 with the grip and three batteries so I returned the camera I had been waiting for, the XT3, and bought the XH1. I absolutely love and made the best single decision. The XH1 is amazing. So, lesson I learned: Stop waiting. Get what's available and use the shit out of it.
  11. What are you shooting? Does max speed matter? I shoot the XT1, XT2 and the XH1 with my original lenses from 2012 including the 60mm 2.4, the 35mm 1.4, and the 18-55. I find them all "fast enough". I shoot four small grand kids - aged 12 months to 8 years old with ANY of these lenses and I don't have much of a problem. Yes, I do miss focus every now and then, but for the most part I nail the shots I need. I use zone focus, 9 points, and away I go.
  12. I was satisfied with my XT1 and XT2 -- that is, until I fell in love with the XH1!! I still have the other two, but use them strictly as back up. The XH1 has been on sale for 1299.00 with the body, the battery grip, and three batteries. I'd try and stretch for that. I've been a Fuji shooter since 2012 with an X-E1 and the 18-55 and the 35mm 1.4 lens. If these options are still too expensive how about buying one of the optional grips? I've seen them on sale, for various Fuji series cameras, for under 75.00 Hope that helps. J
  13. You should. Yes.
  14. I'd leave the 12. I packed my 12 2.8 Zeiss, and my 16 1.4 to Iceland. In two weeks there I used the 12 2.8 once, and the 16 1.4 exactly ZERO times. I used the 16-55 2.8 on the X-H1 and the 50-140 2.8 on my X-T2. Originally I was going to pack one of my two 18-55 lens and the 55-200. But, after checking the weather I decided to go with the sealed lenses as rain was forecasted for several days of my stay there.
  15. Cards are dirt cheap. Replace and move on. I own over 30+ cards. each one is dated and numbered. Once they hit 3-4 years old, they get trashed whether they still work or not.
