  1. I'm a general photographer meaning I generally shoot whatever I see that's interesting except weddings. Don't do those anymore. I own 14 Fuji and non fuji lenses and the one's I use most are the 10-24 (OIS), 16-55 F2.8, 70-300 (+1.4TC), and the 150-600. Those cover everything I do, the other lenses I've paired up with the various fuji cameras I've owned that the lenses they're paired with were developed together.
  2. Red-tailed Hawk preening. X-H2S, 150-600.
  3. Corvalis, OR. X-T10, 16mm F2.8.
  4. Corvalis, Oregon. X-T10, 16 mm F2.8.
  5. On The Beach In Fog. X-H2s, 70-300+1.4TC, Acros+R, slight grain added.
  6. I've been using my X-H2S for several weeks now and have had very little luck getting it to lock on and focus for BIF (Birds In Flight). It does a fair job of locking onto a sitting bird but absolutely will not recognize a small (think sparrow size and smaller) BIF. Yes I'm using the bird and subject recognition features but other than large slow moving birds I've got zero BIF images. I'm using the X-H2s with the Fuji 70-300 and sometimes the 1.4TC and am curious to know what settings those of you who have attained usable images of BIF are using so please share. I'm not going to list mine now as I'd like to know what others are using first then do a comparison. Please let me know your settings and lens used. Thanks!
  7. Great Egret With Nosh, X-H2S, 70-300+1.4TC.
  8. Great Blue Heron, X-H2s, 70-300+1.4TC. As a rule I don't like bird photos in B&W but this Oregon coast day was so gray and dreary very little color showed up so I went with B&W minimalism.
  9. B&W of driftwood on Yachats, Oregon beach. X-T1, 10-24.
  10. I've been on the fence about the X-H2s primarily due to price. I preordered the 150-600 and cancelled the order because I wasn't seeing any wildlife (primarily birds) photos that I thought were any better than what my X-H1 and 70-300+1.4TC are producing. Perhaps my success rate of BIF and the ability to zoom in closer would have made photographing birds a little easier but shelling out $4,500 for the out fit is a little too much for a retired hobbyist on a fixed income. I've decided to see what the 40mp model will do with the sharp Fuji lenses I've acquired and specifically an X-T5 which should be a little less expensive.
  11. Black-headed Grosbeak 1st winter. H-H1, 70-300+1.4TC.
  12. Douglas's Squirrel, X-H1, 100-400.
  13. I agree with the X-E1 there's magic in that camera and if you like that analog look go for the X-P1. If you want to go fixed lens the X-100s is a consideration.
  14. X-H1, 16-55 F2.8.
  15. This is Pnut in repose. She is a short hair mix that adopted us at the animal rescue in Newport, Oregon. She has quickly taken over the house and our hearts. Her head and shoulders appear green due to window tint. X-H1, 70-300+1.4TC.
  16. Sorry to hear of your issues with your new camera and hope Fuji and Adorama will fix them and get it back to you in time. Your issues are the reason I don't buy cars or cameras the first year they've been out sometimes it takes the manufacturers that long to straighten things out.
  17. I love the images the TTArtisans 50mm F1.2 renders. X-P2, TTArtisans 50mm F1.2@F1.2@ 1/4000 sec.
  18. My neighbor makes these bells from expired gas tanks. X-H1, 70-300+1.4TC @ F8, 1/750 sec. Acros+R. X-H1, 70-300+1.4TC, Acros+R.
  19. A photo of the bridge that crosses the Alsea Bay in Waldport, Oregon where I currently live. Taken in one of our many rain storms along the coast of Oregon with an X-H1 and the 18mm F1.4,
  20. Crabbing In The Fog Alsea Bay Waldport, OR.
  21. It really depends on condition and number of shutter actuations. I picked up a mint black with under 2K shutter count a year ago for under $300 and have seen the value go up in a year which is unusual for a digital camera but the x-100 series appears to have developed a cult following. I would be patient and find what you believe is a good condition one that has a return policy because most people rate their cameras higher than they deserve to be. BTW it is an excellent camera to use with beautiful results especially the B&W.
  22. Incoming storm at Pacific Grove, CA. X-P1, 14mm with Hoya IR72.
  23. Go to FB and look in the Fuji X Users Group and the Ultimate Fuji X Users Group and you'll find them there.
  24. Sorry then it is the only site where I have a larger file posted.
