  1. I've only had one issue with ONE camera (Fujifilm S2 Pro) and that includes owning between 1973 and today:

    Minolta SR-T101 (my sister still owns it)

    Minolta X-E7 ( I still own it and it still works)

    Digital: Fuji 4900z 4.3 megapixel - outstanding camera

    Nikon 8700 8mp - never had an issue through sale

    Nikon 300 6mp - never had an issue through sale

    Nikon D700 12mp - Still use it and still works perfectly with over 200,000 images

    RB67 Pro Medium Format

    2 ea Mamiya 645 AFD Medium Format

    2 ea Yashicamat Twin Lens reflex

    Fujifilm S1 Pro - ONE of the BEST early digital cameras with gorgeous colors and a Base ISO of 320, 3.2mp

    Fujifilm S2 Pro.  The S2 Pro developed a bad sensor and Fuji in Edison replaced the sensor, and shutter free of charge with a. two day turnaround after I dropped it off.

    X-E1 - never had an issue

    X-T1 still own it.  Rubber grip started to come loose and I used gorilla glue to fix it

    X-T2 Camera took a salt water bath and self-destructed.  Not worth repairing per Fuji's repair estimate, sold for parts

    X-H1 - Still shoot with it never had an issue

    G50R and 100S. -- Haven't had an issue.  Fingers crossed I don't


  2. There is a setting in LR where upon import you can select "Camera" settings.  This way the raw file keeps the sim mode.  This is what I use.  However, I'm on the road traveling and can't get to my LR catalog right now.  When I import my 100s and 50r files the raw files do retain the actual sim used and does not "convert" it to the Adobe profile.  If I can figure it out remotely I'll post again.


  3. Not sure what the fix is other than sending it to Fuji if it bothers you that much.  I am going to m make an assumption that this has zero effect on picture taking, so if it were me I'd leave it alone.

    Now, with that having been said how often do you clean it?  My XT1 is nine years old and I can count on one hand the number of times I've cleaned the EVF.  And, to clean it I use a soft brush, to brush any dust away, and if it's smudged, I use a Q-Tip with 1/2 drop of glass cleaning fluid.  So in other words, I don't clean it too often.


  4. I updated my 100s this morning.  I too had to update the date/time/gmt information.  Thank goodness that was all -- my other settings stayed intact.  Kinda flaky from Fuji...

    One update I'd LOVE to see is the ability to either hide, or re-order the film simulations. I've been using Fuji's since my old X-E1 in 2012 and there are some film sims I have never used. It would be great to be able to hide them or at least re-order them in some order that makes sense to the user.

    The delay is a result of having a “Clarity” setting engaged.  Turn Clarity off and there will be no delay.

    Man,  Thanks for the advice!!!!   I had at Clarity at +1, in my C1 setting.  I took clarity to zero and what a difference it made!

    Thanks again

  6. THANKS Jerry and Greybeard.  This is very helpful!  I do use geotracking.  I'll have to test that.  I was actually surprised this app still ran on my iPhone 7s which is six years and six months old!  I'm keeping the old app just in case I didn't have too many issues with it and was reasonably happy.  I'm actually looking forward to the new app primarily for the Activity feature.  I wonder if it captures the total of shutter actuations on the camera?

    Thanks again guys!


  7. Hello everyone,

    I was wondering if Fuji finally fixed the new xApp as they promised on May 31st.  Also, has anyone started using it?  I'm also hoping Fuji ports this over so we can use it with the 50r and the XH1.  

    I've had no issues with he old app and will still use it with my other cameras, but I was considering switching my 100s over to the new one.  Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

  8. 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.


  9. 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.
