Just ordered a GFX100: and First Post

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.

    • Is it possible to switch from manual focus to AFC while recording movies (without stopping recording). I could do this on the XT-4 but can't find a way on the H2S.    Thank you
    • If it may be a little cheaper I would recommend the KIPON Tilt & Shift Adapter for Fujifilm X-Mount. It is available for about 300 euros to buy. Then you only need one lens for FX sensors. You can then waste the remaining 14300 euros on something else...
    • The only ways I can get the camera to show the "storing" message while it writes is to set either Clarity or HDR - neither of which can be selected in full auto mode. Even a very slow card does not show that message. I'm out of ideas. Perhaps you could post a link to a file when this occurs (straight out of camera) so that we can see all of your settings.
    • Welcome to our forum. I've copied your corrected post into the opening comment.
    • Maybe it will be more useful for Fujifilm to provide us (GFX users) with a  suitable tilt and shit wide angle lens  which is badly needed for architectural and landscape photography. I had spent over 15,000 Eur  in the system back in 2019 and that includes only the GFX 50s  as a camera body.. The rest of the money was spent on lenses, handgrip and tilting viewfinder which  has just stopped working..  It is only fair that Fuji take care of its clients especially after making a decision to switch camera systems from one brand to another. I have been taking my aging 50 s  even to cover yacht racing, although the focus system and frame progression is a huge disssappointment to say the least. as it takes a huge amount of time. I am a semi-professional and not a full time photographer, mostly engaged in art exhibitions and investment (especially at this day and age)  requires sacrifice... I expect that the system is given proper attention, now that it has lured users and clients to it! I am at the point of buying a second body, a decision which I m still considering or changing back again to full frame... as since then both canon and nikon have come up with workable solutions...
