Just ordered a GFX100: and First Post

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Well, looks like my first post here is the first post on this forum!!

;)

I found a used GFX100 and thought it was a good deal...and I dropped the hammer on it.

Even used price eats up a LOT of funds....but I found that the 50mm GF 3.5 lens was half price about $499 or so at B&H, so I got that.

 

I also went ahead and got the Fotodiox new adapter and hoping I can use some of my Canon L glass with it adapted....and I purchased the new Metabones Speedbooster Cine adapter so that I can use my Hasselblad V System lenses...which I'm hoping will really be something fun to use and experiment with.

ON the Hassy lens, I have the 50mm, the 80mm and the 150mm....all in really near mint condition.  

I have a Hasselblad 501CM 6x6 film camera, and honestly, I was holding on to let them put out the new CFV 50 C II Digital back to use on my old 501 CM....but I started getting the GFX100 under my skin and watched WAY too many YouTube videos on it and when I found the used one, I couldn't resist.

Anyway, This will be my first Fuji digital camera.  I scored a good deal on an older MF Fuji GSW690 III MF 6x9 camera...it is fixed lens, but WOW..talk about great images!!

So, that's where I am...hoping it comes in by this weekend.  I'll start researching and maybe trying to rent a few of the nicer Fuji GF lenses, all of which seem awesome, but need to figure which one(s) to start saving my pennies for first.

Ok, my first post on the forum....Hello Everyone!!

Good to have you on the Forum and sounds like you will be having lots of fun with your GFX100 and all those lenses.

And congratulations on the Fuji 6X9 film camera.  I have the same model, love it and have taken a few hundred photos with it.  Now I'm enjoying using an infrared filter with JCH 400 Streetpan which has IR sensitivity.

Hello Neal3K!!

 

Thank you for the welcome!!  Yes, what an exciting time we live in....I'm so excited to dabble in the world of BIG digital MF....and exploring the retro-world of MF film!!

I've not given up on regular Digital FF, but it is on the back burner right now with all these new (to me) larger format tools!!

 

Your IR filtered stuff sounds interesting!!!  I looked up that film....what filter are you using?

 

Is there a place on the forum you could post a couple of example images?

 

Thank you in advance!!

I'm using a name-brand 720nm filter but it would take a few minutes to dig it up and the brand doesn't really matter.

I'm limited in the MB I can add directly and Flickr is down right now so I can't use links.  Maybe later.

      Hi,
      I'm having some weird issues with the Fringer EF-FX Pro II on my Fuji XT3 and I hope someone can help.
      When using the adapter with my Canon and Sigma lenses the image on the camera LCD is not showing the correct depth of field for the selected aperture unless I half-press the shutter button.
      The dof in the image remains wide open unless I half-press the shutter.
      The exposure of the image is shown correctly and changes accordingly when changing the apertue on the lens, the aperture numbers on the screen also indicate the correct selected f-stop, but the dof in the image remains shallow, as if the lens is wide open, unless I half-press the shutter.
      Half pressing the shutter also no longer affects the focus of the image.
      I'm shooting in S mode with settings full manual- ss, iso, aperture.
      I've formatted the camera, updated to the latest firmware in camera and adapter (1.7) and the issue still persists.
      Is this there a menu fix I'm missing here? Has anyone else experienced this? Or is this possibly a Fringer issue?
      Thanks for your help!

      Hi guys!
      Any of you has experience with Fotodiox's adapter for Mamiya RZ lenses?
      I have purchased it a few months ago and it works on my GFX50s, but the lenses are not firing on my Mamiya anymore (unless the shutter is set on emergency/mechanic mode).
       
      Thank you in advance.
      Best regards,
      William

      Hello everybody! There is a problem with the SMC Takumar 50/1.4 lens. I have a Fuji X-T10. I bought lens on ebay from Japan - SMC Takumar Also bought an adapter - Adapter When installing the adapter and lens there is no focused image, the image is blurred. The manual focus wheel on the lens does not adjust the focus. The settings on the camera are set correctly - the focus is transferred to the manual mode, the mode "Shoot without lens" is set. What could be the problem? Adapter? Lens? Camera settings? Examples of photos attached. I would be grateful for any help. Ilya.

      Hi all, does anyone have experience with a K&F adapter and the Canon TSE lens? I understand i cannot set the aperture with the Fuji camera. Now: Some say a canon lens will default to open aperture. While K&F says, it will stop down fully, (which i can't imagine).
      Some say, set the aperture on a Canon body, then take the lens off (probably while holding the shut-aperture-button??).
      Can anyone tell if and how it works? Thanks! I mean, that TSE 17 mm is a wonderful piece of glass and all 😃

    • Have used both Nissin Di700 and the Godox ad200, both with a wireless trigger mounted on the camera hot shoe. After seeing the much greater power. better value for the $ and adaptability of the Godox, I have sold the Nissin. Highly recommend getting the optional Godox round head and extension cable which just plug onto and replace the standard fresnel rectangular head. Godox also make some very good magnetic accessories for the round head (filters, snoot, grid pattern / directional acc
    • So things are getting better for some reason since the update. I will say, this update I had a freshly formatted sd card in, and a fresh battery. The first firmware update I didn’t have a card in yet, the phone prompted it and I just clicked. Maybe that has something to do with it. Maybe not.  Either way. I did the firmware update last week and over the weekend got about 1200 pictures and a few hours of 4k 60/24 in f-log, long gop. So here’s all the quirks I can think of since the last update
    • Well in the end I got the Vello and it worked fine. Even got me TTL!
    • I am new to the Fujifilm system, having shot Nikon for the last 10 years, and I recently watched a video on the X-T4 and messed around with something settings and now I can not get the SS or ISO dials to behave like I would expect them to. For example, the values that I have on the display for SS and ISO are not ligning up with the values on the dials. A = 400 iso, 160 = 500, 200 = 640, etc. Also, I can not set Auto mode on either dial. No matter what I do. Auto aperture mode works on the lens (
