parigby - What in gods name are you doing to your (expensive) X-T1 + 56mm setup !? :o


I can't believe this, please give your camera to me and i'll trade you a Canon Powershot.





Hi Maurice,


If l give you a little background to the image, it might assist you. The image is very much a grab shot, as at the time l was on public transport (moving ), and therefore l was constricted with what l could achieve. Having seen the developing image l felt it warranted being captured, but there was a problem, and a big one at that. It's shot through smudged and filthy glass. Believe me, what you see now is a distinct improvement on what came out of the camera. However as l liked the image, and the potential story about to unfold, l thought it worth persevering with - after all not ever image has to be perfect to have some merit (well at least to my eyes anyway).


I will politely refuse your offer of a swap for your Canon

I was trying this technique for street photography I saw on youtube where you pretend to fix the camera or something to drive away the subject's attention while grabbing the shot.  So, sometimes they actually look at you but do not realize you were taking a photo.  I guess this one turned out alright.  The thing is that you shoot with the camera hanging around your neck and can't really point it properly, so, it takes practice.  This was the first day of trying it.  I shot this with my X-E2 and the xf 35mm.

Rosheim, France. The oversaturated look is intended as it was a "postcards from Elsass" project when I just started using my fuji. It also enhances the fact that the old woman has a blue dress and a yellow bag of exactly the same tones than the post logo. It was an amusing project, but I don't do oversaturated colours anymore these days.

X-T1 / 50-140 f 2,8


I don't know if the thread is opened for (constructive) critics, if not pardon me and remove this post, but the effect of using a tele is that the viewer is not absorbed into the scene, it looks a bit like a voyeur paparazzi shot. We can immediatly feel it was taken from far away. For street, try something between 18 and 35mm it really gives the feeling that one is in the middle of the scene ;)

    • Just adding for some more clarification... If, for instance, I choose a menu like the "Drive" and I choose "Continuous" and am presented with the horizontal list of values: 11, 8.0, 5.7, 5.0, 4.0, 3.0. If I use the Rear Command dial to scroll through them and say that my selection was on "11", then continuously turning the wheel to the right will just select 11, 8.0, 11, 8.0, 11, 8.0,... Also noticing that it will skip a click before it cycles back to the first value. Not that that's helpful in diagnosing anything.
    • Try a Fujifilm-recommended memory card: https://fujifilm-x.com/de-de/support/compatibility/cameras/x-t4/ If that doesn't help: go to the dealer and get the money back or buy another more reliable digital camera.
    • Hello everyone, Unfortunately this is my first post as a second day X-Pro3 user. I got it brand new yesterday. I'm using a manual M mount lens with a 3rd party mechanical-only adaptor, if that's relevant. I don't have any native X lenses. The issue I'm having is that the rear command dial will only change back and forth between 2 values and nothing else, regardless of context. This happens anywhere and any time the rear command dial functions. i.e. if it's set to shutter speed, it will only change between two values, for instance 80 and 100, regardless of whether the Shutter dial is set to a number or to "T". If set to ISO, it will only navigate between two values, for instance, 800 and 640, regardless of whether ISO is set to a number, A, or C. Etc for anything it is assigned to. If you press the wheel button in the EVF and get the focus magnifier aid to pop up, it will only scroll between 2 magnification values (are there only 2?). If you use it during playback it will also only switch between the "normal" image and the first notch of magnification: you can see a little "screen" graphic with a scroll bar appear above that and it will only scroll between the original image and the first value of the scroll bar. If I assign the front command dial to any of the assignable values: SS, ISO, etc it works fine. So this is not user error in these cases. I've  looked at every page/post on the internet that I could find that remotely resembles this issue and none are the same as what I'm seeing. I've reset the camera multiple times and updated to the latest firmware (from 1.23 to 1.31). Nothing has worked. I'm guessing it's broken unless this is something really simple I'm over looking. I'll be calling the shop tomorrow but  this was their last one and these are now impossible to get in NZ. So it's not looking good if this has to (ridiculously) go through a warrantly repair. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I hope this turns out to be nothing! Thanks.
    • Hello, I have the XT4 since Thursday, May 19, 2022 and the camera started to freeze on Tuesday, May 24 and again the next day. I have to remove the battery to turn it off, because no key reacts, not even the ON/OFF key, the screen always remains frozen.  I have the latest update, the bluetooth is not associated with my smartphone, I have no Flash whatsoever connected with. just the Fuji 18-55mm lens. Where does this problem come from? If you have ever heard of it, any solutions? thank you very much   
    • Hercules Cluster M13 (84 minute equivalent exposure). From a dark place, you can see this one in the northern sky just by looking up. Of course, having more than 100,000 stars in the cluster helps brighten it up a bit. https://www.messier-objects.com/messier-13-hercules-globular-cluster/ https://earthsky.org/clusters-nebulae-galaxies/m13-finest-globular-cluster-in-northern-skies/ https://science.nasa.gov/m13-great-globular-cluster-hercules
