  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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...
  4. 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 the top portion has a smaller compartment where I keep my headlamp, hat, bug spray, drone remote and spare drone batteries. After three months of use I have to say it's my favorite so far.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Seriously? Switch to CFEXpress? Wow. SD cards WORK. Hell my D700 Nikon still uses CF cards and they have never failed me. I keep a out 30 SD cards. In using SD's for years I've had ONE go bad and that was a cheap PNY I think card. If you use quality Sandisk, you shouldn't have an issue.
  9. I agree with Johant. Video IMHO SUCKS. I still own the X-T1 and instead of buying an XPro 1, 2 or three I just slap my 27mm 2.8 on the X-T1 and go to town with it as my everyday carry camera. The X-T2, X-H1 and the MF gear stays pretty much at home. Since changing to Fuji in 2012 I can count on ONE hand, Ok, maybe two, the number of times I've used video. Heck, I don't shoot video with my iPhone, or my drones either. I can't stand it. I also do not think the size increase is due to just the video capabilities.
  10. Looks like a shutter sync problem but I'm not a repairman. I experience something similar back in 2005 with a Fuji camera, the Finepix S2 Pro and Fuji in Edison NJ replaced both the sensor and shutter assembly free of charge under their Professional services division - when it existed. It looks like these were not flash images, but in case they were, you may be shooting at too high a shutter speed; I'll just throw that up against the wall.

    Why? I have to ask? Are you not happy with Fuji? Or Nikon Or Canon, Or Olympus? We keep chasing the next latest and greatest. Have to say here that even though I have several bodies I still use my X-T1 from what - 2013-14?
  12. I use a combination of Capture One Pro and LR. Capture ONE def has the film simulations and I know LR did as well though I have not used them in quite some time. I do not think they are in LR by default. You may need to add them. I'd go to the Adobe LR website and poke around there.
  13. I own the PRO version which supports ALL cameras as I still secretly have my old D700 Nikon, plus I also shoot DNG on my Mavic Pro Drone. If you only use Fuji, and will never stray, then go with the Fuji version.
  14. Well I use the 12mm Zeiss Touit 2.8 and I find it very, very satisfying. As far as a lens for close-up shooting I use the 60mm F2.4. I find this lens to be amazingly sharp, and detailed. The detail and micro-contrast is incredible. A truly underrated lens in my opinion.
  15. If you want higher res, shoot a vertical pano. Just a suggestion as I've done this with my X-T1 for sh*ts and giggles and the results are amazing. J
