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

    • I was laying in bed and heard a hooting outside my window and was able to get a shot of this guy.  The conditions were terrible, 1am, overcast and starting to rain so it was extremally dark.  400mm, ISO 12800, f5.6 SS 1.5s and heavily processed.  All I could make out was a dark shadow in the branches once my eyes adjusted.  The wind was also picking up so I couldn't lower the shutter speed anymore to drop the ISO.   I had to use manual focus and kept firing off shots slowing adjusting the focus each time time until it seemed in focus.  The photo is is obviously horrible but it's fun finally having some reach and very cool this owl showed up just after getting the lens.  I think I'm going to have to build some owl boxes and put them up around the property. I also need to learn to navigate through the settings in the dark.

    • Have you done all of these: - Set the Drive dial on top of the camera to Bracketing (BKT) - In the Shooting Menu => Drive Setting => Bkt Setting => Choose the three film simulations you want to use and (most important) - In the Shooting Menu => Drive Setting => Bkt Setting => Bkt Select : Choose Film Simulation  
    • You have Clarity in the Image Quality menu set to something other than zero
    • I use back button focusing on X-T5 but only lock AF using Switch option. I have set both AF ON and AEL buttons to AF ON because I kept pressing the wrong button accidentally and I let the camera take care of AE Lock when shutter half-pressed. BTW I think Fujifilm could do also do a better job of locating the other Fn buttons particularly the one next to the shutter button as it is really difficult to get to. I;d prefer them all in a vertical line on the front so can easily feel which one I'm pressing!
    • Can anyone provide me with the answer. I am new to fujifilm camera.  I am using the XT4 and in single shot mode, everytime, I take a shot, the Lcd screen will display "storing" and I have to wait for the message to disappear before I can take the next shot! Is there a way to turn this off.
