Greetings!  gnuhapi is my alias and I'm an analog dinosaur, beginning to learn and get happy with digital.  My first camera was a Kodak Brownie and from there I progressed through Aires, Canon, Leica, Yashica, Nikon and a few experimental stints with Hasselblad, Speed Graphic and a custom 16x20 graphic arts camera which I built into my darkroom wall.  I did some photojournalism, advertising racetrack, wedding and evidence photography during several other careers which fed me.  Retirement and subsequent travel brought on the sale of my surviving Nikons and the purchase of a nondescript digital, a couple of Canons and a doomed-to-failure Nikon 1V2.

When the Nikon's lens failed, and my Canon G-11 would not fit the bill for a scheduled trip to Turin this April, I bought an X-Pro2.  Naturally, the normal 35mm lens wouldn't suffice, so along came the 18-135.  When the trip was cancelled due to the pandemic, and I was locked down at home in Spain, I amused myself shopping on Amazon.  Along came an EX-3 with a 27mm, a 23mm and ultimately the X100V and too many peripherals to admit to.

My photography is eclectic but heavy on a preference for Black & White and documentary shots.  I also do many reference photos as I paint as well.  I'm enthused to find this forum and looking forward to learning and communicating.

Hi there, Didiergm here, from France, a non-gifted amateur who insists on taking images in the hope that sometimes a couple of them will be pleasant enough to be printed, framed and put up on the wall

It would be nice to know a little bit more about other members so perhaps those who are willing could post here.   I'll start. I'm olli, orginally from Northern Ireland, now a serial expat, currentl

Hi, I’m a long time amateur photographer from the south of England. I’ve recently bought my first FujiFilm camera, a X-H1 and a couple of lenses. My previous digital cameras have been Canon and Pentax.  I’ve always liked the look of Fuji stuff but never got round to buying a camera from them until recently. The X-H1 ticked all the boxes for an upgrade and the price was very affordable. I’m really enjoying using my new Fuji stuff and am really liking the colours and quality of the pictures I’m getting from the X-H1.

Hi all. I'm a recent Fuji convert from Olympus, and have so far got myself a X-H1, XF18-55, XF55-200 and a Samyang 12mm. Next purchase will be a 100-400 then stop spending!!

I mostly do landscapes with a bit of wildlife thrown in, but don't really photograph people!

Hi all

 

I’m a micro four thirds convert. Just sold all my m43 gear and purchased the x-t4 with 16-80mm. My first Fuji setup. I can honestly say, it was the best decision I have made. Had been considering it for years and don’t know why I waited so long. 
 

I’m absolutely blown away by the results I’m getting straight out the camera

Not Exactly new, but Don't think I introduced my self.  Must have missed this thread.

I'm Aaron.  I love doing both 4K video, and Photography.  I did have a X-T4, but returned it.  There were some money issues.  And some other things.  But will replace it shortly.  I strongly believe that who we are as creators, shows the world who we are.  Here is who I am:

Wonderful camera. For a very good explanation of all the dials, buttons and possible settings, have a look at David Greengo at Creative Live.

Hi everybody. I am a long time amateur photographer based in the North of England. My interests are in landscape and portraiture. Most of my photography has been done here and in the west of Ireland. I have the X-Pro2 and a range of fixed and telephoto lenses together with the X-100F and X-100V and love the cameras. Having for many years done film photography using Olympus OM cameras, I feel very much at home with Fujifilm's film simulations - no manufacturer gets near their gorgeous renditions. Now four years in with Fujifilm after using Pentax as my first digital experience.

Hi everybody. I'm from Milan, Italy and pretty new to the photo world in general. I have the XT3 still with the kit lens 18-55 and the XH1 mostly used with 50-140 2.8. For the moment I'm focused on natural life and sport in particular road bike and triathlon.

I would love to get some tips on the use and probably the proper AF (c) setting especially related to road bike races. Is there a dedicated area of the forum for such technical discussions?

Thanks a lot !

Fabrizio

    • I picked this up and have been testing.  The assembly looks a bit frankensteinish but seems to serve the purpose.  I agree with CatAreGods comment on this maybe being unnecessary under some circumstances.  I am pretty happy with it from the standpoint that it lets me balance the entire camera/lens/teleconverter assembly much better over the tripod mount.  That will come in handy with windy or other challenging conditions.
    • I'm going to throw in my two cents here. I have the Fuji GFX 50r and the 50MM pancake lens. This is a great street and general shooting 1-lens kit. As to the difference between FF and MF, I also agree with Jim, I see a difference in the color and resolution on screen (I have yet to print from my Fuji yet). A friend refers to this characteristic as the "special sauce," the combination of Fuji's sensor and lenses. Yes, I have FF Canon R6, the files are good, but there is a visual difference that to me looks richer with the 50r.  The shot of Mano was taken with the 50MM lens on the 50r.
    • Nope, even when it was at minimum extension, no hood.
    • Thank you for your all your replies. I'll update this once available. It's not easy to go to the service center this time.
