I had a quick search for this and couldn’t see anything so apologies if it’s been posted before.
I have an X-T30 which I love, but the one thing that annoys me is the tripod plate needs to be removed to access the battery compartment. I’ve seen a few l brackets which allow access to the battery compartment.
I have a Peak Design tripod, so the plate needs to be unscrewed with a little key and it’s just a pain.
Can anyone recommend an l bracket which is compatible with the X-T30, allows access to the battery compartment, is decent quality and doesn’t add too much bulk?
I’d appreciate it if you could send your recommendations.
I switched over to Fuji from Nikon a few years ago and seem to have become quite a gear collector. When I used Nikon I had a Nikon D7200 and the 24mm f1.8, 35mm f1.8, 50mm 1.8, 85mm f1.8, and 60mm f2.8D lenses. Since moving to Fuji I have managed to obtain the following:
cameras: X-T3, X-T30, and recently the X100V
lenses: Laowa 9mm f2.8, Fuji 10-24mm, Fuji 16mm F2, Fuji 16mm f1.4, Fuji 16-80, Fuji 18-55, Fuji 23mm f2, Fuji 27mm, Fuji 35mm f2, Mitakon 35mm, Fuji 50mm F2, Fuji 56mm, Voigtlander 58mm f1.4, Fuji 55-200, and the Fuji 90mm (still also have the Nikon 60mm f2.8D).
So I love all of these lenses, but honestly have way too many to put them all to use as I should. I am wanting to move to a minimalist set up. I recently purchased the X100V and instantly fell in love with that camera. The one lens design has really helped me rediscover what I loved about photography upon first starting out. So the X100V is staying with me. So I am wanting to sell some of my excess and need some advice about what to keep. At the moment I am thinking about keeping the X-T3 with the Laowa 9mm, Fuji 16 f1.4, Fuji 56 f1.2, Fuji 90mm f2, Fuji 16-80mm, Mitakon 35mm, and Voigtlander 58mm f1.4 (just for the fun of manual focusing).
My question is, does this sound like a reasonable set-up? I really want to move away from zooms (except for the 16-80 for fun).
My X-t30 no longer lets me record video. Nothing happens when I push the shutter button in video mode.
- My main use for this camera is for recording video projects at my workplace.
- I noticed the issue after using the camera as a webcam with a elgato camlink 4k. I had optimised the in-camera settings for use as a webcam during the past months of Zooming everyday.
My attempted fixes so far:
- I reverted all my in-camera settings back to my usual, non-webcam settings.
- I updated the firmware to the latest version.
- Many google searches to see if anyone else has had and posted a fix to this issue.
I recently picked up the x-t30 after finding the Sony X100 Mark 7 point and shoot was a bit soft. I don’t know much about photography, but I love taking pics of flowers, family, pets, and travel. I realized that my x-t30 refused to take macros, so I got the mcex-16 to aid in that. I tried auto, manual, everything under the sun (I think), to try and take pics of my new African violet blooms. But my camera simply won’t budge when I press down on the shutter button. What am I doing wrong? Or is the Mcex-16 broken (it did come in a banged up box)? Also, I’m pairing it with a 18-55mm Fujinon lens, which several people were doing in the reviews for the extension.
Hi All, I recently entered the Fuji world and I'm trying to find my way to develop raw files. I used Dxo Photolabs and the Google Nik Collections to develop raw files, but since DXO does not support RAF files, I have to find an alternative. I am now trying the following software:
capture one express
With darktable I can manage local adjustments through masks, parametric masks etc etc, but Capture 1 Express can't do the same. Question for C1 Express users: What tools do you use to manage local adjustments? What is your workflow? Thanks and sorry for my English!

This is excellent advice. The 50/f2 is one of my beloved lenses for my X-Pro2 and street photography. As a pro also doing workshops, I see a lot of people struggle with these so-called portrait lenses like the 50/f1, the 56/f1.2 or in full-frame the fast 85mm lenses (f1.4 or 1.2). Esp. when you're in a hurry like the short time you have when shooting portraits in the street. Many like to open up the aperture as wide as possible ending up with all sorts of focusing issues due to the shallow DOF.
Dear members and visitors, I have the same problem with steveblue and after I read all of your posts I finally concluded. I just wrote a friendly table, so everyone can read and understand it, with real examples. I can't cover all combinations but those I have tried is enough to understand your needs for your case and to apply them for the best solution:
