  1. Works perfectly fine in SilkyPix, my day to day RAW converter. All the film simulations (that your camera model supports) are available, plus the SilkyPix standards (which I never use). They are called the "color profiles" in SilkyPix.
  2. Then buy something different. There are enough choices. You don't like Fujifilm, and you don't like Sandisk (from reading your posts). Then don't buy them. BTW, ten years is nothing.
  3. I used an X-E1 and X-Pro1 for several years. I have always used back button focus.
  4. @Pierre in my previous job, I traveled almost weekly, and I have never been asked to produce an invoice for my camera. Maybe it depends on whether you have the priority or economy (tourists?) lanes at the airport?
  5. The X-Pro2 came with a paper manual. Not sure about newer cameras. The Fujifilm manuals are not great, so you might want to consider a book on the camera.
  6. I am surprised by your statement that this doesn’t happen on your F. Because I believe that is exactly how my F behaves. I will try later today. As a workaround, you could always dedicate one custom setting to “everything on zero”.
  7. I have used the 35/1.4 for over five years now. No complaints from me regarding focus speed; it is fast enough for my purposes (on the X-T1). Personally I would only choose the XF 35/2 if I needed WR, but that only makes sense on a WR camera, of course.
  8. And it's safer. When a screw-in hood takes a hit, the chances are higher that the impact is transmitted to the moving parts of the lens.
  9. You're looking at the size of the embedded JPEG.
  10. Is that with both lenses? It should not matter, in theory, but did you do a full reset of the camera?
  11. “Silver beats black.” Is that a law, or something? I only buy used, so it’s a matter of what’s available in my budget. Both have the same features and functions. I have had silver and black cameras, and I actually don’t care.
  12. I personally hate watching videos. I much prefer a well-structured text document, with illustrations / photos when needed. (Don't like watching TV either ... give me a newspaper or a good book please). So I don't really trust the opinions of any "Youtubers", since I don't watch them.
  13. When using JPEGs, there is a considerable difference between the X-T100 and X-T20. They have very different JPEG engines. When using RAW, and your own "recipes", the difference is smaller, but (if you pixel peep) not unnoticable.
  14. For the first one; how are customs going to prove that you didn't pay VAT? Nobody (when I still travelled) ever asked me for an invoice of my camera. And especially when the camera looks used, I think it would be reasonable when you cannot produce a receipt anymore. The second one; no Fujifilm service from Fuji Europe is more relevant for me. So far, I got good service from Kleve, but I don't think they would want to repair (for free) a camera or lens that is not covered by EU warranty. For out of warranty repairs, they probably don't care. So it depends on the savings, and how much could go wrong. I bought my XF 27/2.8 as a grey market item, but I would not do that with e.g. a camera body.
  15. @epscott looking at the size difference between the (photo oriented) X-T1 and the (video) X-T4 shows exactly why Fujifilm is going wrong by giving in to the video generation. The X-T4 is not only a lot bulkier, but also a lot heavier. Plus, the development effort spent on creating video features cannot be spent on making the best photo camera available. Fujifilm should not cripple their photo cameras with video futures, but should create a different line for video cameras.
  16. That is simply not true. It makes the camera more complicated and more expensive, and the camera usually ends up being a compromise. So there's more to break, more stuff to cool (so the camera is going to be heavier than needed for photography), and more to pay. I wish Fujifilm would resist the market pressure of the Youtube generation, and focus on creating the most usable and best photo cameras possible.
  17. You are still trolling, and no, I don't like the way Fujifilm are going. I am going to keep using my current cameras until they break, and then I will consider my options.
  18. Umm no ... I don't long for a worn down camera, and if it ends up that way anyway, I'd like it to be through my own use. And I couldn't care less that my X-Pro1 shows white underneath the black paint instead of brass. If it annoys me, I can always cover it up with gaffer tape.
  19. In the Leidsche Rijn flowing through Harmelen
  20. That certainly doesn't look normal. If returning is not an option, I would put a strip of gaffer tape over it.
