  1. @mikecroshaw, would you please try to use it for more than 20min after turning Boost mode on? I would really like to know if this is a defect or this is normal. Thanks
  2. I have noticed the same thing, I'm not sure if this is an issue, but it certainly is noticeable.
  3. For those who are in Austin TX, Precision Camera and Video contacted me, and they are filling some of their early pre-orders tomorrow. So I know that if I pre-order early with them, I’ll get the camera on the release day
  4. Hello folks, So I like to shoot in both RAW+JPEG for the usual reasons. After importing my files to Lightroom (Lr), I sometimes like the JPEG and would like to export them, I don't want to export the edited RAW file, how can I do that? What I currently do, which inefficient, is manually hunt for the JPEG in the original directory. I don't prefer to re-configure my Lr to treat RAW and JPEG as two separate files because its is annoying to me using the capture-time stacking approach. Any tips? Thanks
  5. Look into the Godox V350F, V860II, or V1F. I just bought the V1F for off camera shooting, and I'm so happy with the results. I don't shoot professionally, and I use it with a remote trigger on my X-T1 Good luck
  6. I have an X-T1 as well, and already placed my pre-order for the X100V. I contemplated the X-Pro3, but its too large for the purpose that I would want it for. I think the X100 series is hard to replace if you want something small but mighty. If you want the X100V for the size, the X-Pro3 is noticeably larger even when using it with the 27mm (I had the change to check out a pre-production unit). Don't forget, the X-T4 is also about to come out, I think I'm going to sell a kidney, and get me one of those too lol
  7. Hello guys, I'm very excited to receive my pre-ordered X100V (placed with my local store), but does anyone has experience which vendor usually delivers pre-orders first? Amazon, BH, or others? I'm a little impatient lol. I speculate the difference in delivery time will not be more than a week unless Fujifilm USA prioritizes some vendors over the others.
  8. I've only had the X100F for a two months (Nov 2019-Jan 2020), I thoroughly enjoyed it, but sold it when I found out how soon the X100V will be released. This passed week, I went to my local camera store (Precision Camera and Video, Austin TX), and they had a pre-production X100V for showing (see attached photo). It was great for the two minutes that I tried it. So I'm very much looking forward to my X100V.
  9. Perfect, I'll try that again. I would recommend you add this to your blog post (article) and state that this is an adhesive that you are trying to overcome. For someone like me with no experience, such information is very valuable.
  10. Hello @yukosteel, I wanted to start the project right at this moment, and looking at your guide, you don't specify how to pry open the name plate? Is it adhered to the lens body using adhesive? how to pry it off? I tried to pry it off using a Jimmy, and noticed that I had incurred some minor damage so I stopped. Omar
  11. This is wonderful news, I am very excited about this. My X-T1 needs a younger sibling lol Thanks Patrick and J.
  12. Interesting, I’ll look that up. I am just learning about this. Thanks
  13. Hello Zach, What do you mean by compressed raw? Sorry but RAW by definition is uncompressed format, correct me if I'm mistaken
  14. Good evening Akritas, I completely understand the appeal of the X100 series. I sold the X100F not because I don't like it, but because I wanted the newer X100V, which is about to be announced in the next few weeks. But I also want to upgrade my X-T1 to the upcoming X-T4, which is also about to be announced soon. So what I might end up doing is get the X-T4 and use it with the 27mm pancake if I want a small form factor. And if I couldn't turn the X100 fever off, I'll also sell one of my lenses and buy both the X-T4 and the X100V 😎 💸 But again, the XF27mm pancake appealed to me for the form factor. It didn't stand out to me too much in terms of joy of usage or quality of the produced images. I have to disclose that although I owned for a few years now, I only used it for a very short while before it failed 😕 , but I'm working on fixing it soon. Since I like the 35mm focal length, if I were you, I would get a used X-Pro1 + the XF 35mm f/2.0 (I don't have this one, but its price is good, and it is weather sealed). Oh, and if you want to reduce the cost a little more, the XC 35 f/2.0 was just announced, and its price is half the XF 35mm f/2.0 but its optical performance is apparently identical to its XF sister (see link). Cheers
  15. Welcome to the forum @Akritas, I'm new here too, and I share with you, and with many other members this forum, the main attraction of the Fujifilm X-Series size and very attractive looks! TL;DR: any X-Series camera (including the older, significantly more affordable ones) + XF35mm is a great place to start. I am a hobbyist as well, and used to shoot Nikon (D90 then D7000). I "converted" to Fujifilm in 2015 when I bought the X-T1 with the 18-55mm kit lens. My love to the X system has since grown. And the bulky Nikon system is gone. I carry my X-T1 camera everywhere, I sometimes annoy myself carrying it around without the finding the ability to use it. But it is one of those things: you use it once, you love it, and you carry it around everywhere because you don't want to miss an opportunity to use it. I recently bought the X100F, because why not. Actually, for two reasons. The first one is that I wanted to experience the liberty of limiting my choice (rolling eyes). The second reason was the even smaller form factor. Let me explain. I love my X-T1, and my favorite lens is, hands down, the 35mm f/1.4. But since I have 4 other primes, its takes me sometime to decide which prime to take with me. So eliminating that choice by the fixed lens X100F is kinda liberating. So, is buying the X100F worth it? Well, after using the X100F for a few days, I realized that I have an almost equivalent focal length XF lens, the 27mm pancake lens that I can use with my X-T1. So the question became, will an X-T1 + 27mm pancake lens be comparable in size with the X100F? The answer is YES. So I sold the X100F, and started using the X-T1 + 27mm pancake lens until the XF27mm failed, now I'm back to the game of wasting time deciding which of my primes to take with me lol. However, I find myself falling back on using the X-T1 + 35mm f/1.4 more than the rest of my lens due to its size, focal length, weight, and quality of images. My XF primes are: 35mm f/1.4 56mm f/1.2 27mm f/2.8 90mm f/2.0 23mm f/1.4
