Wouldn't you know it, I just bought a brand new X-H2 camera with a XF 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 lens a day before I heard the news of the X-S20. I had been seriously looking at the X-S10 before deciding that the X-H2 would better future protect my choice in cameras.  

After reading the specifications, I don't think I would have made any change in the purchase of the X-H2. I had, however, no choice in the selection of the lens as it came as a non-kit camera. The lens and I will have to get to know each other before any changes are to be made. The next lens will soon be the XF 30mm f2.8 macro. I plan to use it is both as a "normal" prime lens and to "film scan" the vast quantity of film stock I've accumulated.

This is my first Fujifilm camera. I am coming from, digitally, Canon G12 then various Apple iPhones. Before that I've used many film cameras starting with Pentax through view cameras to Bronica ETR and Nikon cameras.

The type of photography I enjoy I call "wondering around in a meditative mood with a camera." When using my iPhone's camera apps I like also putting my mind in an algorithmic state of mind allowing my eye to be in tune with the iPhone's image computational modes.

If you are interested in my work my Flickr account is

The Fujifilm system will take my artistry to new, sharper, more detailed and colorful worlds.

I have been alive in Toronto, Ontario, Canada since the early 1970's after moving from the U.S.

I hope to learn and contribute much to this forum.

Cheers, Tom

    • It is/was not what I was used to (5D3, R6) in terms of color and WB. Using Kelvin manually is just like another top dial. Something to do to get it right in camera. 
    • I don't think there are Fuji "FX" lenses or mounts, it's "XF". If I had your camera I would buy any XF or XC lens and expect it to work. I do have an X-T30 ii, pretty similar. I have lots of XF lenses. XC lenses are made by Fuji and are cheaper, if it's cheap you want.  I wanted a lens with very few elements or element groups, and bought a Pergear lens for about $59 new. It only has 4 elements in 3 groups, IIRC. I also plan to use it if I ever think I might ruin the lens, like shooting something dangerous.
    • Buonasera a tutti, qualcuno usa Saal Photo Portal per vendere le proprie foto? Funziona? Grazie,
    • Please help me before I send it back. Do I have a bad copy of Fujinon 33mm f1.4? I find it really soft off center (not even corner). See print screens. I focused on the same spot, just moved focus point. I get same result over and over again. (EDIT: After more testing I find that I can get sharper results off center but it's very inconsistent and not at all reliable. Focusing issues? It's not the camera, Ive have tried it on 3 different cameras)

    • Hi everyone. I'm new here. I recently bought an X-S20. It's really a decent camera but i encounteted something odd. I linked my X-S20 with my phone via wifi using XApp. I enabled Auto Image Transfer Order so that images in X-S20 will be sent automatically to my phone whenever Xapp is activated. When the camera is switched off while there are images queuing to be sent, the indicator lamp on the camera blinks green and orange. I know it is normal since it is only completely turned off until all images are sent to the phone. But sometimes the image transfer is discontinued due to connection problem or else. The problem is, after being disconnected, the camera seems not to identify the disconnection and keeps on blinking green and orange. If i switch the camera power button to ON, the camera will not show any response (but continues blinking). The only way to fix this problem is to take the battery out and put it bavk again. Did anyone also encounter this problem? I would like to know how to fix it.
