Hacked Site

The forum is not hacked. It's just that a few Spammers registered and spread fake threads. Here is the explanation of Forum Admin Andreas in another thread:

 

The registration to the forum MUST be open - we want new members and we welcome everyone.
Spammers use this open door and start pestering us after they got in.

Of course we take measures to keep such people out but this is eternal game of Hare and Tortoise (in German it's Hase und Igel).
We manage to keep 99% out but when 1% get through they use this gap until we close it.

 

Your personal data is a completely different thing: These are not meant to be open (like the registration process) thus they are much more save.

 

You can compare it to a bank.

Yes, the door is open. But only the front door to leave in our customers.
Nasty guys like spammers mix with the customers and are not always easy to identify.
They get into the customer area (=forum) and start spreading their spam.

The vault of a bank (= our databases) is a completely different issue: By definition not meant to open to the public and so much easier to protect.

    • No, it doesn't work if you have pulled the ring to manual. The 14mm is a sharp lens by the way. You won't be disappointed.
    • Don't worry about the shutter count. If it's working OK just use it. It's very unlikely that the shutter is worn out. I believe that 150000 actuations has been quoted for the X-T3, but that from memory. It's going to be at least 100000 though.
    • I forgot to mention. To see the images correctly on the camera you can check some settings. Make sure that evf and lcd color are set to 0. Likewise lcd color adjustment (you can tweak these later if necessary). More importantly make sure 'natural live view' is off. These are located in the 'spanner' section under 'screen setting'.
    • Can you describe the difference for us? What software are you using to view them on your computer? Do they look, the same on another computer and monitor or on a tablet or phone? Is your monitor calibrated? Most monitors that are not specifically made for photography are too blue and too bright out of the box. If you don't have a colorimeter, and your Images look OK on other devices, you can try adjusting the monitor using its controls.
    • Last summer I sold my whole Canon setup (5D mkiii, 35mm, and 85mm). I actually adored the setup I had, but the weight really bothered my body. I was very excited about the mirrorless cameras and their light weight. I went to my local camera shop and they talked me into buying the Fuji X-T3. I was a little nervous about it not being full-frame, but the shop assured me it could perform on a professional level. My first lens for the camera was the fujinon 23mm 1.4. I've been using it for portrait sessions (families, seniors, etc), and it's just not performing anywhere close to how my Canon setup performed. When I zoom in on the images, they are just not clear and crisp! Part of what I love to offer my clients is the ability to print their images bigger for wall art, etc. I don't feel like I can recommend they do that anymore. Do y'all think I need to go back to a full-frame camera? Or am I just doing something wrong with the X-T3? Thanks!
