    TommyS reacted to ESCH in Hi from Sweden !   
    After a year of absence I own a Fujifilm camera again, and I am back on this forum. My journey went from film cameras (Praktica, Olympus) to DSLRs (Canon 5D MkII) to Fuji X100V to iPhone 12 Pro and finally back to the Fuji X100V. The DSLRs simply turned out too bulky and heavy, collecting dust on the shelf. I was initially very happy with the Fuji, with a few exceptions (no GPS, disastrous Cam Remote app), but got intrigued by the capabilities of the iPhone 12 Pro. The integration with the Apple eco-system is outstanding, and the some of the computational photography stuff is amazing, e.g. Night Mode. Using the iPhone for more serious photography though soon showed it’s limitations. Besides the physical limitations (fixed aperture, touch screen, small sensors, limited resolution) it is actually the computational photography that made me switch back to the X100V. The pictures look overprocessed and artificial to me, skin texture and tones are off, the artificial blurryness of Portrait Mode looks just - artificial, colours are too saturated etc. I find the pictures acceptable for online-sharing (Facebook, Instagram etc), but not for bigger screens or prints, and it is very hard - if not impossible - to revert these pictures to a more natural look, at least with my limited knowledge of Lightroom and Photoshop. Worst thing is that I get used to these overprocessed photos, loosing my feeling for natural colours and skin tones ….
    So here I am, a happy owner of a black X100V

    TommyS reacted to papedo in landscapes with fuji x   
    i do a lot of different photography and really enjoy all of them but my secret love is still landscape photography.
    as a former nikon user (still using it sometimes) i wasn´t completely sure about the landscape capabilities of the xtrans sensors. i read a lot about it and wasn´t aware, until a few days ago, that many users don´t like the rendering for landscapes.
    anyway i decided to buy a zeiss 12mm and adapt my 100mm filter system to it. and it works fine. let me know your experience for landscape. i´m actually using the x-e2 with xf23, zeiss touit 12mm, 55-200 & 18-55. i´m now considering a x-t1 because of tilt screen and weather sealing...
