Hi All! I'm Joe from Dublin. I took up photography during the first Covid lockdown here in Ireland. With everything closed and a 2KM travel limit in place, finding motivation to leave the house became a daily challenge. Trying to capture photos of various things in my locality became my daily activity.

I started off with an XT4 as I knew nothing about cameras, but I was drawn to its classic camera appearance. Fortunately it turned out to be a great camera. I have since upgraded to an XT5 and primarily use the XF150-600mm lens.

Hi. I'm from Spain. I jumped from film to digital with a Fuji S3 Pro many years ago (I still have it), then I've been using several Nikon bodies and way more lenses than I need 🤷‍♂️. I wanted a smaller, lighter and sexy body for traveling and casual use so I ended up with a XT30 II, a 35mm f2, a 16mm f2.8, a Godox TT350F and a X2T trigger.

Now I'm extremely happy with my very small, very light and very powerful bag.

An itchy trigger finger has cast me here after I sneezed, squeezed and murdered the buy button for the XT5. (What little there is left of them as they are dwindling quickly) and that said ...Hi there friends!! 

(wipes brow)

I may go back into the mad fray and snag lil bro (xt50). Something about that charcoal color and all the insane hoopla makes me wanna Cha Cha!

Are Fuji, new toy announcement, market, events always this nuts? I don't remember things being this crazy back in 2018 when I bought my best friend and his family the XT20

Hello,

i'm from Vilnius Lithuania. I do photography as an amateur from about 2005 (with long pauses). Now having FujiFilm X-S20 with kit lens XF 18-55mm. This is my second Fuji, first Fuji was smth like 3MPX S5000 ultra-zoom. And and the fourth camera in my life. 

Why am I here? Probably to share experiences. New cameras are an endless story where you can customize every parameter.

PS I love "raw" (not post processed) JPGs.

PSS here is Vilnius only resized.

Wow, just re-read this post...so cool about Ireland and the lockdown being the jolt / spark that pushed you further into photography ! And man, that zoom lens sounds sick !!! I've had a few chances to shoot some concerts, but I didn't have a proper zoom and always wondered what a good one would be.. 16-150 !!! Wow !

Spain !!! NICE !!! Been to Barcelona + Madrid, once...need to go back !!! X-T30II !!! Nice, I've been thinking about picking up one again. I had the first version w/ the 35F2 and loved that setup...I moved on so I could get an X-T4. But I loved how small it was and how powerful it was. Hard to find the MARK2 version right now, even used...I think I'm going to try and add that.

Feel you !!! Fujis are flying off the shelves right now, atleast in the States. Even on the used market, some bodies that I thought would be available, or at a certain price...are not, available lol. X-T50 looks nice !!! Thinking about it, or the X-T30ii, we'll see.

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

    • Interesting to hear about the heat issue and sorry for your experiencing it. On the Oregon coast we don't have to worry about heat as it rarely gets above 76 deg. F. I had an opportunity to field test mine on a 7.1 mile hike in the woods of the Oregon coast. We climbed 1,300 feet with different temperature zones on each side of the mountain.  The first thing I noticed is how the closeness of the controls on the small body make it easy to push buttons or hit the shutter button when taking it out and putting it in a bag. It can make for some interesting things appearing in the viewfinder that have to be reset before taking a picture. The size of it is really requiring a different way of handling it. I've owned an X-T10 and I don't remember it being this fiddly. The shutter button release is stiff compared to my X-H2s with its smooth release and the stiffness sometimes made me push a little to hard to get it to focus and I ended up with out of focus images from pushing too hard and tripping the shutter. I really like the sim choice dial as it has a cool semi circle display that shows the film sim selected and a picture of the film canister. I also really like Reala Ace and it has become my fav sim. It will be nice when it is available for my X-H2s. I also did some bird photography with it and my 150-600 and really like the built in digital tele convertors. I noticed very little image degradation even with the 2X multiplier. The issue is the size of the camera to the size of the lens making it difficult to balance so I'll be staying with the X-H2s combo in the future and use the X-T50 for hikes, travel and landscapes. So overall, as with any camera, there are things to like and dislike based on personal preference. What I'm most disappointed in is DXO PR4 not recognizing the files. I'd publish some images but I don't like the way they appear on this site and it wouldn't be a good representation. I will also add to my review from time to time as I use the camera more.
    • 92•F is 33•C and that is pretty damn hot where I come from. If the camera was on the whole time, maybe it could have reached the warning limit without actually having a fault. I don’t know. You did not say which country you are in, I presume USA. The number would be 1-800-800-3854.  https://fujifilm-x.com/en-us/repair-and-product-support/
    • I received my X-T50 two days ago.  I did not have time to take it out until this afternoon.  It is hot today, but not excessively so.  My car thermometer indicated 93 deg F, and the weather app on my phone said 92. I took 30 photos in a span of about 45 minutes.  The camera started feeling very warm and a warning appeared saying I was approaching the high temperature limit.  This would make sense if I were taking videos, but these were just still photos.  Does it seem strange to anyone else that the camera would reach such a high temp at 92-93 degrees ambient temperature?  I have another question. I was looking for a support phone number or email on the Fujifilm website but could not find one.  Does anyone know how to contact Fujifilm support to inquire about this high temperature condition?
    • Something does not seem right. Uncompressed raw files for the X-T5 are supposed to be around 80MB, call it 85MB just to be safe in that assumption. 183 x 85MB = 15555MB, which is about 15.6GB. Even if you are using full sized, fine jpg along with the uncompressed raw files, you would not come close to filling a newly formatted 64GB card with 183 shots. Maybe try a new card?
    • Sometimes, issues like these can be complex and difficult to diagnose, especially if they're intermittent.
