Introduce Yourself


Recommended Posts

Hi everybody out there...my name is Martin and I am a doc, live in S/W Germany near the Swiss and French border close to Freiburg and the Black Forest.  I take photographs mostly with the tiny Fuji X-E2s/27mm, but own some other digital and analog Cams. Educated in photography at "Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie/Berlin" I learnt that most of my photos are boring, but a good curator can make a nice exhibition with nearly any portfolio. And: Badly spoken/written English is the most widely spoken/written language in the world, I am part of that community;-)

Stay healthy!

Hello,

I'm Otis from Greece. I know a little about photography, and a lot about the technical side of imaging and video. I just got some Fuji X-series equipment and I'm interested in using in for video projects. I thought this forum would be the place to start.

I've been an analog (i.e., film) photographer for over 55 years. Getting into digital has not been easy. The cameras have so many capabilities and the software is at times confusing. Anyway, I've at last settled on Fuji as meeting my needs, with the best user interface I have seen. Have an X100V and a X-S10. Let the new journey begin!

Hi,

My name is Brandon.  Have been using Fujifilm cameras for a few years now.  Started with an X-T1, moved up to the X-T2 and most recently purchased an X-Pro3.  Love the form of these cameras having switched over from Nikon and haven't regretted it once.

To be honest, I'd never stumbled upon this forum until today.  Looking forward to reading through and being a part of the community.

Greeting from Australia

I am a long time photographer, new to Fuji with recent purchase of an X-T3.

I actually started in underwater photography with a Nikonos V, a Nikon F80 film cameras in the 90's, before transitioning to the Nikon D100 and D200 based systems. I then transitioned to MFT mirrorless in 2013, using Panasonic Lumix GX7, GX9 and G9 bodies. These days my photography is broader adventure, landscape and travel based.

My philosophy is to change cameras only when I have hit the limits of a system, and I have found a limit in terms of low light (particularly astro) photography. I know many would say I should have gone all the way to full frame, but in my reading, tests and discussions, the Fuji system seem to balance great image quality and carry ability. And they seem fun to use, which is important.

So here I am. Look forward to future conversations. 

Cheers

Good afternoon everyone. I’m new to the Fuji system but so far am loving it. Was a Canon shooter for years up to a 5DMkIV. But I love the aesthetics of the Fuji and it has always drawn me to want one. So I bit the bullet and purchased an X-T4 when they were released in 2020 for my first mirrorless and travel camera. Wow, am I loving the camera and Fuji ecosystem. 
 

Shot this picture today showing CA’s COVID existence. It was 70 degrees today, not one cloud in the sky, on a holiday weekend, and still the streets seemed empty. I shot it with my X-T4, XF 23mm f/1.4 at 1/500, f/5.6, ISO160.

Hi from Scotland!

Came to Fujifilm (X-T30) from Canon (5D mkII) about a year ago and haven’t looked back. I’m really enjoying the X-T30 now i have it set right for me. 
Been working on a budget so went down the adapted vintage lens route but, for me at least, it’s not the way forward. 
I’m mostly a landscape guy and i find the old glass doesn’t quite have the resolving power for anything more than a few meters away so sticking to Fujifilm lenses for that! In the right hands though and used in the right style the vintage lenses could be used to great effect, i don’t doubt it. 
I shoot in full manual mode to force me to slow down and take my time. Almost everything is tripod based (Gitzo carbon) and i use both Capture one and Lightroom. 
Looking forward to being part of the Fujifilm community which seems to be growing steadily and sharing some images and info!

Hello, I'm from Scotland too! I had an entry level Canon which I rarely used. I got my Fuji and absolutely love it, I have an X-T30 with 18-55mm lens. Now I'm out with my camera often and have a lot more interest in photography.

I’m in Perth and hoping to have more time to get out soon, locally though, going on flexi-furlough!

Can’t wait for travel to be allowed again, aiming to get to Iceland, Prague and the Outer Hebrides this year!

Just picked up a 15-45mm lens on Ebay for next to nothing, so far it seems really surprisingly sharp (when used between 23-35mm and around f/8!)

    • Summer Color... In winter, Orion puts on wonderful color displays. Its nebulae make it well worth freezing your batteries off to get the beautiful images. But, …, it is not the only show in town and other winter season nebulae demand their share of your viewing time. What about summer? Not to worry, there is plenty of sky color as well. Scorpius leads the way starting in late Spring:

    • Hi there,   I am currently in the process of upgrading all my camera gear since my current gear is very outdated. For the body I've already settled on the X-T5, but I can't figure out the lenses yet so I was hoping to find some advice here. I will mostly take the camera with me on hikes (this is also where the WR of the X-T5 comes in handy) so about 70/80% will be on my travels which will include landscape & street photography, the rest will be wildlife or zoo animals, some astro photography and maybe a tiny bit of portrait.   Starting of I was leaning towards the XF18-135mm, very versatile and also has that WR so one less thing to worry about. But since the main goal is landscape & street photography, a prime lens plus a zoom (in my mind) makes a lot more sense. So right now I'm thinking of getting the XF23mmF2, tho I'd love some advice on this as well. My reasoning behind the XF23mmF2 was: wide aperture, sharper than a zoom and 35mm in 35mm format equivalent (that's why I think I should pick it over the XF35mmF2).      Now for the big part the zoom lens, this is where I need the most advice. The way I see it I can either go for the XF55-200mm or the XF70-300mm both of which have pros and cons for me.   Starting with the XF55-200mm,   Pro: its focal length is closer to the prime lens I want so I don't have such a large gap.   Con: It's not WR, maybe I'm putting to much value on this but is does seem very nice to have.   Then with the XF70-300mm,   Pros: obviously it has more range for those long distance shots, its compatible with the teleconverters, the reviews point out it's a lot sharper in the 200mm range and it has WR.   Cons: this leaves a big gap in my focal length and has a smaller aperture.   If I missed anything please let me know and if you need more information to give me better advice please ask.   Thank you all in advance! 
    • Hi  @GreybeardWhen I look through the screen or viewfinder, the focus area appears clear and sharp. I took ~20 photos on vacation and when I finally looked back at them later I realized they were all blurry. Such a bummer. Sometimes, I notice that when I hit the shutter I can see the focus area blur and the screen goes black before going back to live view. I will see if I can get that on recording.  @jerryyI followed the tutorial and the live view appears to be doing exactly what back focusing is intended for. Half pressing the shutter doesn't do anything. When I push the AF-ON button, the area in the green box becomes clear. I snap the photo -- it's blurry! AHHH! @George_P I will turn it off in some test shots tonight. Hope this gives us some more clarity. I bought my camera last April -- so we are just past the warranty. Does anyone have recommendations on what to do next? I've been emailing with Fuji but get a response every ~3-5 days. I'm so bummed because I have another trip in July and I feel like this issue might not be resolved by then.  
    • Option b. but the shutter speeds will start at 1/125. What you are describing is a setup for using mostly automatic rendering by the camera, just one step away from being in “P” mode. For any given scene, the camera will try to expose the image as best it can within the min and max allowed auto parameters you put in. Depending on how bright things are at the time you try to get the image, the other settings may not change at all, or if you go from a bright to a dark setting, the ss and iso may change wildly, all trying to get the best exposure for that given aperture f-stop. If you wish to ‘force’ the ss and iso to change you need to manually set them as well.
    • Hello everyone, My name is Jarek and I come from Poland. I apologize in advance for my English. I have just become the happy owner of a GFX 50S II (a complete accident - a bargain). I haven't dealt with cameras for a long time. The last SLR I had was a Konika-Minolta 7D. In my old age, I decided to return to my passion. My second passion is Sphynx cats. Unfortunately, I can't find an active forum about Fuji in Poland, that's why I came here. Greetings to everyone - Jarek
