  1. Hello Stefan, Have you tried Adobe Bridge? I believe it's a free download. May want to try a free trial of Luminar, or Capture One as well. You have nothing to lose but a few bucks if you decide to buy it.
  2. Welcome to the "club". you've made a wise choice. LOL
  3. Thank you for the update!
  4. I would LOVE a Medium Format GFX Monochrome camera. I'd be FIRST in line. And, I'll add that if it has the body of the 50r so much the better!
  5. Hello, I just pulled out my 50r and using the 50mm lens I tested the peaking. First, I flipped manual focus on and tried it in the color modes - Astia, Velvia, Provia. I have my manual focus peak to High and Red. I then switched to MONOCHROME w Red Filter and and Acros w Red filter and my peaking was still on RED High. I then switched over to plain Acros, then plain Monochrome and my Peaking was still Red High. If I come across a fix I'll post it. J
  6. I love the way C1Pro renders my X and GFX files. I've been a LR user since Beta 1A in 2006-07 and I still use it for culling, minor editing, and cataloging/storing but my main image processor is Capture One. I will say I've used Silkypix as well with my X files and it comes darn close to C1Pro but nothing, IMHO beats Capture One.
  7. The 16mm 1.4 is AMAZING! I've owned it since 2015 when I used it on my XT1, and still use it on my XH1. IMHO it is one of Fuji's BEST lenses period - together with the 80mm. I have images taken with this lens hanging in Boston at the Children's Hospital there. VERY large prints.
  8. When I print, I have a 13"x19" Canon Pixma 100. The printer cost me a whopping $50.00 and it included 50 sheets of Lustre 13 x 19 paper. So basically it was free. I love that printer! I got rid of my Epson as it was nothing but issues with it - ink clogging, striping, splotchy ink placement. This Pixma 100 is over three years old, and it still works beautifully. Not too bad for free. Just a side note I never shut the printer off; it's always on as this way the ink doesn't dry, and more importantly there isn't the huge ink usage when the printer starts up and primes itself. You can check the canonusa.com website and they'll have specials every now and then. My ultimate goal is to move up to a 17" x 24" printer but that's sometime down the road.
  9. Great Eye. Love the colors!!
  10. Try reaching out to Fuji - though they'll probably want to have it sent in but it doesn't hurt to call
  11. Have you or anyone else cleaned the sensor? There is a s specific procedure for cleaning IBIS equipped cameras. My cameras have IBIS but they certainly don't vibrate a table....
  12. many folks complain about the camera remote app. I have no issues with it. I use it with my X and GFX series. Yes, sometimes it fail but that's far and few in between uses. I love the GPS feature, and the remote timer. I don't use any of the other features such as the transfer. Overall, though a bit finicky I like it very much.
  13. The first gen 10-24 had a habit of failing. It seems that moisture was deadly, and I don't mean downpour either. There is a guy on YouTube who went through three of them before he got fed up and quit the 10-24f4. The new WR version is supposedly better.
  14. HA@ What are you doing wrong?! You are shooting video on a GFX 100! HAHAHHAHA. Sorry. No insult, just sad humor. I don't do video... Can't help but I couldn't resist.
  15. I spent 53 days traveling in the Yukon and Alaska this past summer (2022). Using my vans power outlet and some splitters, and some accessories I purchased off AmazonI always had my XH1 (3 batteries), G50r (2 batteries), and G100s (2 batteries) , plus three drone batteries, my iPad, a power bank, apple watches, and two iPhones charging as I drove. Never had a low or dead battery issue on any device EXCEPT for the ONE time my spouse UNPLUGGED the main cable because she wanted to power up a har straightener (LOL NOW, NOT THEN). Check out the many options available on various online retailers, as well as Staples, Best Buy etc.
  16. On a new camera? That's odd. On my 11 year old xt1 (February 2012) it took about six years or so for the rubber to start peeling. I just put a few drops of gorilla glue and here we are in 2023 and it's still on there.
  17. Just chiming in but I buy various size lens hoods by the dozen on eBay. They are cheap, and they work. I use the Fuji hoods, and other no-name brands.
  18. I've been using Fujifilm since February 2012. I started with an XT1 - which just so happens to be sitting here next to me with the original 27mm 2.8 lens. I sold ALL my Nikon gear including multiple D800e bodies, 70-200 24-70 and 16-24. The only Nikon I still own is my original D700 with a 50mm 1.8 and the 18-35 zoom lens. I really fell in love with the Fuji system. As you will note in my "signature" below I own quite a few Fuji items. I have NEVER had a camera issue that required repair --- The exception being my Fujifilm S2Pro DSLR body that required a new sensor and Fuji replaced it free of charge and it was already a five year old camera. So I'd go for it if you really want a Fuji. On this forum you have an amazing support group that will answer your requests for assistance. Good Luck with whatever decision you make.
  19. Well as I mentioned above I was about to order a 100s. I did. It's FANTASTIC, but it does experience some hot pixels. Not too many, but that was only after 5-6 months of (everyday) use. I was away in the Yukon and Alaska for 53 days and with over 9,000 raw files I did notice some dead/hot pixels. Not sure what I'm going to do other than re-map.
  20. How about using the self-timer set for 10 seconds, or the Fuji App? Have you tried those two options? But first, set the camera to back-button auto focus. This separates the function of autofocus, from shutter release.
  21. Sir, I LOVE all your images posted here! The colors, and the details are amazing! I am planning on visiting Italy in the near future and I hope I can come back with images as beautiful as yours. Happy Holidays my friend. j
  22. Oh good point. As does any "chrome" effect...
  23. I was wondering if anyone is using the new 20-35 F4 lens, and if so what your opinion of it is. I'm waiting on B&H to send me a stock notice but I would like to have some user feedback. And yes, I've read and watched YouTube and other reviews.... Thanks
