  1. Saluti, The method described by Laurence (merci à elle) can be used on an XT 1, (and probably on other models), + f2 23mm lens and other lenses, but with a work around on 'clutch' lenses. This means the thread could be extended to other rubrics. As for DoF tables there are apps available for iPad that do the calculation for you on the lens/body, focal length/aperture combination (s) that you choose. There is also a website 'dofmaster' that will also calculate DoF and hyperfocals; it appears not to have been updated for some time, only x100 and Xpro1 are mentioned, but as you can chose focal length, aperture and focussing distance the result is fine. Have fun Jeremy

    file management

    Saluti David, I have come across the same problem I only have an XT1 but I am sure the XT10 must function in a similar, if not the same way. The short answer is you cannot create folders into which your photos can be stored as on D300 (which I had). The camera generates its own folders according to the number of images (?) However you can edit the file name in the set-up menu, check exactly where in the user manual; so I would suggest trying this out before you set off. Have a nice trip Jeremy
  3. Bonjour Tous, Lots of discourse here.... First of all a quick reply to Binotto - I only use C1 (v.8) so cannot help with Photoshop. As for lens correction, I believe it is done via the data in the Raw file, which records the lens used. (Although I stand to be corrected here) I agree with Ric.Gyan that there are several choices and none are perfect (if there was a perfect solution we wouldn't be posting on forums :-) So I suggest people try out as many software solutions as possible (whatever camera they use) and for this the trial periods offered are useful. If the image processing is bottom line there are other aspects like workflow, cataloging, key words, cost etc to take into account according to priorities. Some may prefer multiple tools. In the end the choice is personal, but you have to remember that the further you get into the software the more you can get out of it. It is an investment. Have a nice day
  4. Hi Quentin, Sorry about your frustration and I cannot alleviate it. However for your better understanding the release notes for C1 v9.2 clearly state the limitations on processing and exporting Fuji x trans raw files (these limitations have been mentioned in all the release notes since v8) You will find these on p11 and p23 in the table. They should get around to finding a solution for the Xpro 2 raw files as they have done for other Fuji cameras - perhaps in version 9.2x or 9.3? But probably with the same limitations. So the bottom line is either you stay with C1 and live with the limitations, which is my choice, or change your software, which will be less painful if you're on a trial version and have other drawbacks. I doubt if this helps but have a nice day anyway. Jeremy

    Which Fuji X cameras do you use?

    Bonsoir, The poll seems to be closed, but fwiw I use XT 1 (+ 18-55 and 14) + X100, the latter being my introduction to Fuji and, despite its idiosyncrasies, is great for walking out and about light. I also like the discipline of a fixed focal length. Jeremy
  6. Hi Everybody, Concerning the passage from Aperture 3.5 under Mavericks to Aperture 3.6 under Yosemite and El Capitan, I can confirm that this is possible but it requires that Aperture 3.5 be trashed (and Trash emptied) before installing Yosemite or El Capitan. You can then download the 3.6 version from the App Store, because the license is still valid, and install it. It would be advisable to back up libraries and the application in case you want to go back. However there is no indication if Aperture will last after El Capitan. This was explained to me by Apple help, but I haven't done it, mainly because Mavericks is very stable on my aging iMac (2009) and I don't see what I would gain by an upgrade as I have gone over to Capture One 8, which suits my needs and do not use Aperture very often Also, I feel that we spend too much time (and cash) on upgrades. In film days this was not an issue :-) Hope this is useful. Have a nice afternoon Jeremy
  7. Bonsoir Tout le Monde, I originally used filters on my Pentax lenses and they saved them a few times, notably in sand, sea, and being knocked against a mountain, all in general out and about and travel use, not extreme sports. I wanted to use filters on my Fuji lenses (uv by Hoya) but first I bought one and tested it out for potential loss of image quality. I couldn't see a difference, so I bought a second for the other lens. As others have pointed out it is basically insurance for no, visible to me, loss of IQ (not Intelligence Quotient) Have a nice Easter Jeremy
  8. Bonjour Tout le Monde, I put in for #2 viewfinder + rare menu access on XT1 and X100. I like shooting directly in b&w so I shoot RAW + jpeg with q menu (on XT 1) accessing custom setting b&w + yellow filtre or if I decide to do colour custom setting velvia. The b&w jpeg is kept as a reference for when I convert the raw file which, of course, comes out in colour. Otherwise I set the aperture with auto shutter speed or manual. ISO at 200 or I change it manually (the pleasure of turning knobs ), if necessary. Have a nice afternoon. Jeremy

    Incorrect color displayed

    Hi Daryl, Have you tried shooting in raw and then adjusting the color balance/hue in your converter? This should provide an answer, but perhaps you are not conversant with raw processing? hth Jeremy

    X-T1 Firmware 4.20 RELEASED

    Bonsoir Everyone, I have done the download today 19/12 at 19:15 from Fujifilm Europe and only one file came through. Installed with no problems. Have a nice festive season Jeremy
  11. Hi everyone, I have looked at the black and white (b&w) profiles, as I'm not too good on colour, and they appear to be most useful to those wanting to shoot directly in b&w and keep the benefit of a RAW file and all its data. This means setting the camera image quality to RAW + JPEG + b&w film simulation. However the use of a b&w icc profile in Capture One precludes the use of the colour tools (Colour Editor, Colour Balance and Channel mixer in the b&w tab) to adjust greyscale tones, even if there are still many other tools that can be used (exposure, clarity, curves, levels etc) So I will still prefer to work on getting a good colour picture and then convert to b&w, even if on taking the shot I think b&w. This enables me to use the colour tools that can give better fine tuning to the tonal range; also, the colour editor is available as a local adjustment which is very useful for working on skies. Working this way makes me analyse the image and think about what I want to get out of it. I hope this is useful to someone. Have a nice evening Jeremy PS I have been a Capture One user since August 2014
  12. PS Name changing protocol works for X100... Sorry for the omission.
  13. What a first post! Vielen Dank. I'll check these profiles out. The name changing protocol works well. Have a nice evening. Jeremy

    Hello from France !

    Mais moi je suis à Montpellier. Welcome Jeremy
  15. Hi All, FYI the x pro1 was given an excellent review in this year's April edition of UK magazine Black & White photography. The magazine is good too. Have a nice evening. Best Jeremy
