  1. Hi all, I have had an X-E1 since shortly after they came out and am now looking to upgrade. I love the X-E1 but would like the advantage of the improved AF of the X-E2. Here is my dilemma. I can get a used X-E2 from a reputable dealer for about $550 (Canadian). At the same time, the X-E2s is on sale here in Canada for $750. So, given that the X-E2 with firmware appears to be nearly as good as the X-E2s, what would I be missing out on for that extra $200? If it helps any, I shoot a fairly wide variety of subject matter (street, flowers, abstract, etc.) but am really looking forward to the improved AF for more "action" shots (i.e. I have two active kids). I've read that even with the improved AF there is still an issue with action shots, but i figure it's gotta be better than the X-E1. Thanks in advance for any input.

  4. Dear fellow X-E lovers, with our hopes high that Fuji is actually working on an X-E3 now, I've been thinking a lot about what I would want the X-E3 to be like and for which features I am actually willing (and able) to pay. Since I've read all sorts of things about what people want ranging from "as cheap as possible" to "make it an X-T2 in rangefinder format" I decided to make a poll to collect all those opinions in a meaningful way. I am hoping that many people here (and from FR) participate so that I can generate some interesting statistics from the data. Patrick has done some polls but without a bit of background information I believe the value of those polls is quite low (sorry, Patrick ;-) So, here's the link if you want to participate (it shouldn't take long): https://goo.gl/forms/LixLzXFAzOH6SwYx1 » Poll is now closed! I am planning to leave it open for about a week and then do an analysis which I will of course publish here in the forum or maybe as a guest post on FR. If you have any comments feel free to drop them here. Thank you!
  5. My ef-42 flash just stopped working suddenly in the middle of a family event. The flash will turn on, the test/charge button lights up and I can hear it starting up, but it will not fire. I have used it for about a year. Is it possible that the bulb just burnt out? If so, should I send it in for repair? or just buy a new speedlite? I am looking at the nissan i40, based on recommendations online, but I have no idea really. I have the x-e2.
  6. Dear Fuji, I love my X-E2! Especially since FW 4.0 it has become a spectacular camera (save the waxy skin) and I'm so thankful for that FW update. I couldn't be happier when compared with the DSLR I was shooting before. Now give us that 23 f2 and then a 56 f2 and I'll be jumping for joy. But as much as I love the X-E2 I really hope you'll one day give us an X-E3. And I'm pretty sure I (and many others) wouldn't be able to resist upgrading from our X-E2. Here's what I think it should look like: Now let's get the basic specs out of the way and then I'll write some details about each one: - WR - No integrated space-wasting midget-flash - 24 MP X-Trans III sensor - Tilting touch screen - Large EVF from the X-T1 but with higher resolution and that nice refresh rate from the X-Pro2 - Front and rear dial as well as a combined SS / ISO dial - Focus-recompose and touch screen to select focus points (omitting the need for joystick or 4-way controller) WR I'd really like that but I can live without it. My lenses aren't WR anyway. No Integrated Flash Leave that thing out. It's so useless. Literally the only thing I do with it is popping it up and pressing it back in when I'm bored. I'm serious. Integrated flashes are weak, very limited, add potential weaknesses, cast ugly shadows and make WR more difficult. For triggering remote flashes (the only real use this thing has) rather find a way to brightly flash the focus assist lamp if that is possible. The money you save with this can go into adding a tilt and touch screen (see below). 24 MP X-Trans III Sensor Pretty obvious, right? It would be even better if you added PDAF points on the whole sensor but I guess that won't happen. Screen Tilt screens are so useful. I want one. I know some self-proclaimed purists don't want one but that's nonsense. They can simply not use it. And no, it doesn't break easily. Especially not if you don't use it. To accommodate the larger EVF (see below) you will need to make it more compact. I think you could keep it at 3" but all those huge borders around the actual screen area (like on the X-T1 / X-T10) need to go. Not a problem, others manage that as well. Touch screens are so useful. I want one. I know some self-proclaimed purists don't want one but that's nonsense. They can simply turn it off. And no, it doesn't cost much and it also doesn't drain the battery when it's turned off. It's embarrassing that so many cameras still lack one when we're in the age of the smartphone. The potential is huge but (like with the tilt screen) many fail to see that until they use a well implemented one. The main functions will be focus point selection (when shooting on a tripod) and menu navigation. EVF Yes, I want that huge X-T1 EVF. It's lovely and I want you to somehow squeeze it into the X-E3. To do that we'll need to move the screen and give up that 4-way controller which isn't needed (if you implement my suggestions for focus point selection). Add a higher resolution panel and give us that 85 fps refresh rate and we'll be extremely pleased. Please give us a diopter correction that doesn't constantly move by accident. And mark the freaking neutral position! This is UI-101! Dials Give us a combined SS & ISO dial. Not quite like in the X-Pro2 but similar. Lift-and-turn is too difficult to perform since it needs a significant change in the right hand position. Instead make it so that the button on top toggles between ISO and SS. Almost always I'll keep either SS or ISO fixed and adjust exposure with the other. So toggling the two would be perfect. The outer design (SS outside, ISO in the little window) is great. It would be even better if a deep press of the top button locked both settings so they can't accidentally be changed. I'd love front and rear control dials. Make them like the rear dial on the X-E2. Not that mushy thing you put in the X-T10. And then give us the option to change ISO and SS with them by adding a "D" (for dial) setting on the SS/ISO dial. Simple concept: - You like those labeled dials and only need full stops for ISO and SS: use the top dial. - You prefer DSLR-style dials or need 1/2 or 1/3 stops: use the front and rear dial. That way you can make all of us happy: everyone gets to use the dial they want and that ridiculous two-dials-are-needed-for-one-setting-thing has an end. When I use the front and rear dials for ISO and SS I want a press of the dial to switch between manual and auto mode. When the auto mode is selected, turning the SS dial changes the minimum shutter speed and turning the ISO dial changes the maximum ISO. Simple as that. Not a dial, but an important button: I want an AF button that works like the AF-ON buttons we are used to from DSLRs: press once for AF-S, hold for AF-C, half-pressing the shutter doesn't activate AF. Focus-point Selection We have two ways to select the focus point. Both are faster than joysticks or 4-way controllers and therefore (and since we have no space for it) we don't need either of those. Handheld shooting: focus on your subject, half-press the shutter button (extra step when using AF-button to focus) and recompose. The camera automatically selects the new AF point closest to the subject that was initially focussed on. Tripod shooting: use the touch screen to simply tap the desired focus point. In handheld shooting using the LCD you can use either method. ----- So, Fuji, these are my suggestions. I'm sure there might be some problems with this concept I haven't thought about but the general idea seems like a lovely camera to me. Here are a few additional (random) points: - Yes, it would be a step up and probably cause this camera to be priced the same or closer to the X-T2. I wouldn't care. - If the camera needs to become a few mm taller or wider to fit the large EVF that would be okay. - The exact button placement would of course need to be tested on actual prototypes, this is just guesswork. - Centered tripod mount please! - Dual card slot would be awesome. And please let us insert the cards from the side. - Adding Bluetooth for a stable remote connection with low power consumption would be great. - I'd like to have the ability to use the EC dial as a WB compensation dial when shooting in manual mode with AWB. - I forgot a Drive button in my mockup. ----- What do you think of this camera? Would you buy it? Would you rather buy this or the X-T2 with the same specs? What would you do differently? Feel free to drop a comment. If someone with more PS knowledge than me (not difficult) wants to do a proper rendering feel free to do that. Just want to tell Fuji that they should release an X-E3? Here's your chance!
  7. Hey guys, after importing the first images to Lightroom (on a Mac running 10.11.2) after the update I noticed a weird behaviour: All RAW images are cropped to 16:9 after import. Changing the crop ratio to "Original" instead of "As Shot" fixes things. It's a small annoyance as it can quickly be fixed for all images but still it is kind of stupid. Has anyone else had that problem? The only thing I could find about it was this post on DPR: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3966021
  8. cross-posted: just upgraded to fw4 yesterday morning. though a couple of things seemed odd(see below, #2 & #3) it worked fine for ~100 shots, then last night, out of the blue, it started acting up. tried to upgrade firmware again, used different cards & batteries but no luck. symptoms: 1. it doesn't record to memory card, i.e. i take the picture, the orange light stays lit (or before the second firmware upgrade try, it would light up green&orange intermittently - now it is a steady orange), if locks up the rear screen so that it stays on&shows whatever's in front of lens (i.e. as though i am composing to take a pic, but it won't come out of this mode - play button is useless, any other button is useless). camera doesn't turn off until i remove battery. when i restart, no image is recorded onto the card. 2. since the first upgrade, all icons in q menu only show iso, i can't modify them(it was this way immediately after upgrade, but i was still able to take pictures for about 100 frames; it is still this way)? 3. on the right bottom of rear screen, right above iso gauge, there is a darker, semi-translucent rectangle that is blank - it looks as though an indicator should be there but isn't (this also has been this way since first upgrade attempt, but it was working until last night). i put a shot of the back screen with this in the link below, as well as in the attachment to this post: anyone else have this issue? any pointers as to what could be wrong would be much appreciated. thanks! https://www.dropbox....G_0552.jpg?dl=0
  9. A few months ago I asked the sales rep at my local camera store if I could use other lenses on my Fuji and he practically laughed at me, saying "Fuji is known for their glass, why would you put any other lens on your camera." Since then, I have shyed away from this topic, but now I'd like to hear what others have to say. Is it a 'sin' to put a non-fuji lens on our cameras?
  10. I really want a good portrait lens but the $1000 price tag for the 56 is making it hard to ask for as a birthday gift. Is there anything out there that would be more affordable but also offer the same quality? (I know it's a tall order)
  11. I love my x-e2, but it's not as powerful as I would like. Is it worth it to trade in to my local camera store and upgrade to a better model? Will all my fuji lenses be compatible? Also, which model would you recommend assuming I don't want to spend too much.
  12. Here's a comparison test between two CFA with new Adobe method. Sorry, written in hungarian, but click to pictures bravely And a previous test: old Adobe X-Trans method vs new one.
  13. Hi people! In your experience it is better autofocus of the xt-1 over x-e2? and what about the xt-1 against canon 5DMarkIII? I'm impressed with the optical quality but I Had no good experience with my x-e2 with a 52 1.2 lens autofocus performance. I'm thinking using my x-e2 in weddings like a back up camera. Im using canon's DLSR, but the fuji autofocus system worry me. I'm impressed with the weddings examples that I found here, and I would like to try with fuji systems

    Cuba

    For me has been almost two years into the X system, and in hindsight it's more obvious to me that it was one of the best decisions I've made. One of the places where that was quite obvious was last year in Cuba, when I was searching for my perspective on the island, and specially at that time I was there. A lightweight system that made the long walks in the streets under hot days, small that's discreete and it doesn't become intimidating and most of all very fun. Most of the photos from that one were shot with Fuji, despite also having a Nikon D800 (that nowadays serves mostly for landscape/nature).
