Introduce Yourself


Recommended Posts

Hey,

 I am new to the forum, but not to Fuji. Based in the south east of England I shoot everything from still life to portraits, but not much landscape - I really must try harder on those.

Currently have an X-E2 that I bought, new, in 2014 that I normally use with a 35mm f2 and an X-H1 I picked up used with either the 16-55 f2.8 or 50-140 f2.8. I also have a Viltrox 56 f1.4, but it only gets sporadic use.

Looking forward to the forum.

And here’s an example of a still life (mostly as I test the adding images function).

Hello!

I'm Travis from Monterey, CA. I'm a new Fuji owner. Picked up a used XT1 with an 85mm Rokinon 1.4. Just getting the hang of things. Looking to add a 23mm AF. The Rokinon wiggles a millimeter or so when changing the fstop. Normal or did I buy a misfit? I'll check the other posts for the answer.

Cheers!

Hi Travis, I have the 85mm F/1.4 Samyang lens too. (Nikon version with adapter) The lens should not wobble under any circumstances. I recommend exchanging it for another one if the warranty is still available.

Thanks for the response. I'm been trying to figure out if its the correct lens for the camera. Not really wanting to go though the trouble of an ebay return :/.

Hello.

My name is Carsten and I currently live in Bielefeld, NRW, Germany.

For me, photography is a kind of documentation beyond time. It started with a Fujifilm MX2900 Zoom until I got stranded here with the Fujifilm X-A1. 😜

Hi everyone, a Kiwi here (New Zealander), new to the Fujifilm world, having come from a series of Canon cameras. My last camera was the EOS 450D, which I have not used for at least 5 years. Yesterday I just bought an X-S10 kit with 18-55mm lens. As I expected, it's a whole lot of learning about this particular camera's functionality, without the benefit of knowing Fujifilm's style of UX.

We have a family vacation overseas planned for October this year. I'm hoping to learn a good deal about this camera before the big vacation. Since the pandemic started this overseas trip (all going well) feels like a big moment for us. Worthy of investing in a camera and learning to use it reasonably well!

Hello everyone,

My name is Benjamin, I am 35 and I am a newbie in the Fufi-world. I just bought my first camera, a XT-4 with XF 16/80F4 R OIS WR.

It is a huge task to tame this beast (I was working with Canon for years before Fuji), and I am curious to read this forum more deeply!

Thanks for having me!

Ben

Hello everyone, 

my name Klaus and I'm from southern Bavaria. I'm doing nature photography, mostly landscapes (plus nightscapes in the future). I love the whole process from planing, shooting, post processing and printing. 

After 29 years as a Nikon shooter, I switched to Fuji GFX four weeks ago. Even I'm in the mid 50s, I was willing to try to carry the additional weight on my hiking trips. 😉 ATM I'm really curious about the GF 20-35/4 and hope this lens can complete my lenses in the wide-angle area. 

I hope I can learn many things here in the forum. Maybe at one point I can help other Fuji users too. 

If you are interested I have a few images displayed at. www.500px.com/klausschleicher

 

Happy shooting to all 

 

Klaus

Hi everyone, like you all, I've been on a photographic journey for a few years and like a lot of you, I've moved over from using Nikons to Fujifilm. I bought a Fujifilm XH1 about 2 years ago and I love it. I love the various film simulations. I paired my camera with various lenses like the wonderful Mitakon 35mm f/0.95. It usually comes along whenever I go out. Its low light and bokeh capabilities are really quite something. If that lens broke, I'd get another one without a second thought. 
I also got the Helios-44 58mm f/2.0 to capture more moody and/or bokehlicious images.
 
I just got the newest 23mm f/1.4 only to replace my 16mm f/1.4 because I felt that the FOV of the 16mm was just too big for me. I'm also not a fan of the clutch. 
 
Lastly, I also have the 80mm macro lens as well as the 100-400mm.
 
I probably won't be upgrading to the X-H2R or the X-T5 any time soon because I don't need many of the new features that those cameras provide. 
 
Here is a link to some of my photos if you care to check them out.

Here are some of my top favorites : 
 
I hope you like my work,
Cheers

    • Thanks @cpX – from those threads I draw the conclusion that there is some aspect of OIS that you can't turn off. It's a shame that the link provided in the page that your fourth link leads to, for Fuji discussing this in a support article, is broken.
    • That will probably be the drive of the Powerzoom. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4567793 https://www.fujix-forum.com/threads/fuji-xt4-body-16-80mm-lens-sound-problem.108054/ https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4558158 https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4501861  
    • On my X-T30, with the 16-80mm lens, I hear a constant whirring from the lens while the camera is turned on. I thought this must be the IS, so to conserve battery I went to the menu and set IS to "Shooting+motion", but there was no difference. Then I tried setting IS to "Off" – still no difference, there is still a constant whirring from the lens. I turned the camera off, took the lens off, put it back and turned the camera back on – no difference. What is going on?

    • https://digitalcamera-support-en.fujifilm.com/digitalcameraengpcdetail?aid=000005639 Scroll down to the X-T30 section. You should be okay as long as it is 5v 1.5a and uses the standard USB-C cable.
