Hi all


Recommended Posts

I'm Steve, back again for some research before taking the plunge!

I say back again as I was on here before. My first interchangeable lens camera was the X-T1, nearly 10 years ago, which I had and loved for years.  Then I switched to Canon, at the time I was craving Canon colours.

And now I find myself craving Fuji colours again! particularly with (as I only recently learned) the ability to use recipes and tweak colours and other look-n-feel aspects in-camera.

It'll be a substantial move for me, as built up a fair bit of Canon gear over the last few years, but I want a much more pared down set-up (weight, size, amount of gear), and I know I love Fuji cams.

My only potential reservation is missing all that f/1.2 on full frame can bring!  Though I know the Fuji pro wide glass enjoys a great reputation!

Anyways, I'll be lurking and researching, just to verify that I'll be making the right move for me.

Cheers all.

Steve

I too am back to Fuji X-H2S and GFX100S. Left for Hassie but many months after ordering the 3 new lenses I only had the 38V, so I gave up on them. The thinking behind it was if they are so like this with new orders what the heck will they be like for service or repair. Fuji I could walk in the shop and buy everything with 1 or 2 days notice. What's more I am very happy with both cameras and the lenses I chose. I hope I have killed GAS stone-dead.

Ha! Yes I feel the same in that way. I bought way too much Canon kit, not using 80-90% of it!
This time I will be getting the X-T5 and an XF23 f1.4 to start with! I'll likely 'need' at least a couple more primes over time, but I'll start with just the one!

    • I also bought that charger ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08BYB4H1C?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details ) (but from a different brand: Patona). I was already annoyed, when I opened the box of my new X-T5 and then no charger inside. Fuji sells that original charger for extra $$$, but then the power adapter is missing. Why? I am buying a camera, not a phone or a tablet or whatsoever. So please give me the charger. Then I opted for the above one, together with 2 batteries. Same price than the Fuji charger alone without 2 "free batteries". No problems at all. And what's cool, that charger is "slow", 4 to 5 hours for a complete charge. So it does not fry the batteries.
    • @HC-110 Yes, disappointing, right. I've sort of given up - I'll never buy Fuji again. I tried interjecting on their social media ads, living comments imploring them to fix what they deliberately changed/broke. But not a word in response.  Something changed at Fuji and it does not benefit the user. -on to other worries.   John
    • Take the Fuji and save some budget. But keep in mind the Fuji has an APC-C sensor, so the effective focal length you get is about 42mm.
    • How do I lock X-E1 exposure in video mode? It's stuck on auto, and the only thing it can be adjusting is ISO, as the shutter is locked at 24fps, and I'm using a vintage Nikon lens - so manual f-stop. I know its not designed to shoot video, but I find it hard to believe a camera of this quality that offers video at full HD 24fps, would not allow an exposure lock function. Without exposure control, the video mode is useless. 
    • I want to share some thoughts with you in order to help me choose the right camera.  I sold almost my photographic equipment and I kept only 2 cameras.  Ricoh GRII and Fujifilm XT5 and some lenses ( 10-24/4 & 35/2 & 56/1,2 & 16-80/4)  My project for the next years is to visit cities and countries around the world and taking street photography and some landscape photography and publish some books with these photos.  Street photography is 80% of my photos now. The rest is landscape photography. Here some key points I want to take only one camera and one lens. No big cameras, no lenses, no bags anymore. I like to be more minimalist in my philosophy to take photos and in my life generally.  I shot 95% Jpeg not RAW. I know the benefits of RAW in editing, dynamic range etc but all cameras has anymore very good jpeg. And it’s ok for me. If a camera has RAW and JPEG I choose this option and keep RAW for the future when I print the books. Then I will edit my final photos for the printing. I I like 28mm not 35mm I sold my Canon and Fujis and I have 8.000$ in stock. For my new camera and for my first trips.  I read many reviews and I decided to buy one of these 2 cameras for my basic camera.  Leica Q3  Or  Fuji X100 VI with 28mm lens  Would you like please to send me your opinion about this dilemma? Which you would prefer Leica Q3 or Fuji X100VI and why?  Thank you  Greg Plat.
