  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. Oh good point. As does any "chrome" effect...
  5. 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
  6. We need more info before we can post a helpful answer. Let us know the type and speed of the cards you are using.
  7. Strange. My 16 1.4, and mt 23 1.4 BOTH focus on my XT1, 2, and XH1 whether the clutch is engaged or not. Did the rep explain why that is? I'm curious
  8. The glass is rather durable. Unless you gouge it with keys or something else in your bag most likely you'll upgrade your camera before the glass is scratched too much. As far as cleaning, I clean all my glass with an old, 30 year old cloth diaper that I used on my girls. I have several of them. If you don't have any of that, a good quality microfiber cloth, and a drop of eye glass cleaning fluid on a Q-Tip will take care of the viewfinder --- also very good on the rear panel, and lenses bTw Hope that helps.
  9. Interesting. Thanks. I'd love to see the 102.x megapixels though. My OCD kicks in here and there.
  10. Hey everyone, I feel kind of silly posting this but I question on something I noticed. All my raw files in LR show up as 101.8 megapixels, not the 102. I'm wondering if somehow the images are being cropped down in LR? I have to run a few tests to confirm this - by opening them directly in Photoshop, or Adobe Camera Raw but I was wondering if any of you guys are experiencing this. My settings are uncompressed, raw, 4:3 ratio, usually Astia color profile. My 50r records the raws at 51.1 megapixels instead of 51.4 as well. It's not a huge deal, but I was wondering if anyone has also experienced this. Let me know what you all think.
  11. I own the 50r and 100s. I would GIVE UP my all time favorite camera - the 50r for a 100r in a heartbeat!! I like my 50r more than my 100s.
  12. LOL. It's not like a dust pan. You won't see the dust collecting anywhere. I've been shooting Fuji since 2012 and I've yet to have my sensor cleaned in any camera. The auto sensor cleaner is a nice gimmick but in reality it's avoidance of dust, sand and other particles that will help keep the sensor clean. I don't change lenses in sandy areas. In dusty areas I keep my camera opening pointed downward at all times and before I attach the lens to the camera I make sure the rear ring where the contacts are located on the lens itself are clean by rubbing my finger around it. Then I make sure the rear element is not dusty. That's about all the precautions I take.
  13. I don't think the 50r was the "best" choice for fast moving concert images -- I'm assuming rock concerts is what you are shooting. I own both the 50r and the 100s and I shoot little league baseball and soccer with the 100s when I feel like goofing around, and use my XH1 when I really want to nail it with 11fps burst modes. As far as the "look" not sure what you mean. Is it the depth of field? At the distance you may be shooting concerts at, say from the pit, or the sides I do not feel it'll matter. You may want to go back to an X series for that type of photography and leave the 50r for more static or slower moving subjects.
  14. We are ALL Taking photos! I came back from a 50 day trip to the Yukon, and the Arctic with 9500 photos using my 30, 45, and 100-200. There you go.
  15. Might not be too late to return it unless you "map" the sensor. IT's one of the menu items

  17. That is not yet available on the 50r. Maybe, in a future firmware upgrade?
  18. I don't understand. Seriously. I shoot several X series, plus GFX. The ONLY sensor I have ever had to clean was my XT1 back in 2018 and that was only because I was at a camera store and they offered to do it for free. I shoot everywhere from the rainforests and jungles of Costa Rica, Florida, Iceland, Yukon, Alaska, etc and switch lenses often. I also shoot at F11-F16 80% of the time. I'm careful about where and how I swap lenses, but I haven't had the dust issues you guys have experienced. Maybe I've been lucky. Just me standing on my soapbox. I'm finished. LOL
  19. I had not. I don't have time. you should have listed it in your issues.
  20. I spent time in the rainforest and jungles, and beaches of Costa Rica with my XT2 and XH1 and though it was dripping humid many of the days I experienced ZERO problems. Even to this day (two years later) I have no issues whatsoever.
  21. I'm already on the list at B&H. I've been waiting for this lens for over a year! I just returned from a 50 day travel and stock trip to Alaska, Yukon and the Arctic Circle (all the way up to Deadhorse/Prudhoe Bay) and I would have LOVED to have had this lens for some wider shots. I used the 30mm for wide and at sometimes I stitched to get the grand view in which is ok with me but it would have been nice. My most used lens was the 100-200mm though. I may sell my 30mm if this 20-35 turns out to be a great one.
  22. Maybe I scanned this too fast but you don't specify what brand 35mm lens you used.
  23. On my cameras I use gaffer tape to cover the holes. I don't shoot video at all so I don't need a microphone. I'm more concerned about moisture/water getting in there than dust. I also use gaffer tape on the side doors (other than memory card slot door) for the same reason.
