Stolen FujiFilm XT-2 + Lenses (Rotterdam, Netherlands) PLEASE HELP!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi fellow Fuji shooters…

Yesterday morning (September 15) my camera bag with my entire kit was stolen from the Grote Markt outside of the Markthal in Rotterdam. My brand new Fujifilm X-T2 and five Fujinon XF lenses, Lee filters, etc were inside of a LowPro Event Messenger bag. All of my gear gone in a flash, not to mention all of the photos on my SD cards from four long days of work! I am devastated and heartbroken!


 

I am really crushed and do not know what I can do. I know it is really a long shot, but I have to write anyway. I am simply trying to get the word out to as many people as possible. If you could possibly keep an eye out in case you see or hear about anything, and pass along word to anyone else you can think of, especially anyone in the Netherlands/Rotterdam, other Fuji X shooters, camera clubs, keep an eye on classified listings for anything suspicious… I would be very grateful for any small help you might be able to offer.


 

In case you might see anyone trying to sell an unboxed Fuji X-T2 or Fuji lenses near Rotterdam in the next days or weeks. I want to ask you to please try and get any information that is possible and either contact me or else the Rotterdam Police directly. I have the serial numbers available for all items, and can describe exactly what was inside of the bag. Very generous reward and no questions asked if returned to me…


 

Met vriendelijke groet,


Jason Langley

First and foremost my sympathy and best wishes to find your camera and equipment back.

 

Of course the first thing to do, you’ve already done. Hopefully you were insured? Travel insurances normally cover these risks. I take, from your name, that you are not a Dutch National, if you were on a trip you may have been insured.

 

Also, if you bought the camera and lenses witha credit card you may have insurance (even against theft) for up to 3 years.

 

The website marktplaats.nl is the most import place where secondhand items are offered in the Netherlands but thieves are not likely to be advertising this camera there.

 

Unfortunately, many thieves these days everywhere in Europe, are no longer local thieves but more often than not they belong to groups which move between the countries and are just as likely to be in the Netherlands today and tomorrow who knows where. So, even if your camera was stolen in Rotterdam it will be highly unlikely that it would resurface there. Especially if it was stolen in a place where many tourists come, I am inclined to think that the thieve would not be a local man or woman.

 

 

 

This post will serve your purpose much better if you were to publish, here, all the serial numbers of all the stolen equipment.

 

Then not only Dutch members MIGHT keep an eye open but the rest of the members too, because it is way more likely that this will be sold in some other part of Europe (or even the world if they are internet savvy) .

My only other suggestion would be to contact the guys at lenstag - even though you won't be able to register the lenses normally as they require photographic evidence, they may be able to add it to their database to help you and the police anyway.

      Hello,
      I have been shooting various sport events since 2003 until 2014 on Canon. Then quit action photography and switched to Fuji for more calm photography. Switching was one of the best decisions I've made! That quality of color and sharpness - it still surprises and makes me happy every day! 
      I've been asked to shoot some motorcycle races this season, so googling daily what are the best techniques for Fuji X-T2 because they dramatically differ from Canon. I would like to get some suggestions from You. So here are a couple of questions:
      1. Motorcycle straight on at high speed -  which AF Mode  - Single point, Zone or Wide/Tracking is more reliable?  What size of Single point or Zone? Best custom setting for it?
      2. Panning - same or different AF Mode is best? Best custom setting?
      If it's important what gear I plan to use - it is X-T2 + Battery Grip, 55-200mm, 90mm f/2, 35mm f/2, Samyang 12mm f/2 and 8mm Fisheye.
      Thank You all in advance!

      I have a Godox XProF transmitter but no Godox lights yet. When I connect my XProF to my X-T2 (both on latest software releases) the X-T2 recognises a "flashgun" has been connected but the flash menu refuses to switch into Manual. I can select M using the rear dial but it immediately switches itself back into TTL.
      Is this correct? Will it only work in TTL mode as I would like to have full manual control of my lights?
      Do you think I am doing something wrong?
      BTW this happens when there is no receiver active and also when I have a Godox X1RC receiver switched on, which disappointingly will only change the zoom function on my Pixel 800C (Canon compatible) flashgun, not the power levels or mode. Also the Pixel is not actually working in TTL despite the camera saying so, I have to set the power levels manually in the Pixel.
      Any help will be greatly appreciated, thank you

      Trinidad, Cuba

      Buckets of rain brought everyone - even statues - onto the covered porch of the church on Plaza Mayor.
      This day justified my having the 18-135 WR Fujifilm lens on the camera. Wet out there!

      Off on my hols in two weeks time. Going to Ireland for 10 days with the wife. I plan to travel very light so I'm going to use my trusty Domke F-5 XB bag. It is not a big bag: 10.5 x 4.5 x 6.5" / 26.7 x 11.5 x 16.5 cm. I can stuff in my X-T2 and all my lenses: Samyang 12mm f2, XF 23/35/50 f2 and Samyang 85mm f2. Everything fits snug excluding the hoods for the Samyangs, which I don't care about. The Problem is it's really snug. Not only do I have to stack two of the smaller lenses, but it takes too much time and care getting the gear in and out of the bag. As I'm not prepared to purchase a zoom lens (no offense, just not my thing) I am going to have to go without one of the lenses. 
      So, bearing in mind that I would be prepared to stack one of the XFs on top of the 12mm, losing one lens will make the whole thing a lot roomier. Which lens would you ditch?

      Setting my X-T2 for overhead shots, I thought I could use the App to control the camera. But with the manual focus switched in, it was still hunting.
       
      Has anyone else had experience with this, is there a work around, or should I buy the Adobe tethering Pro plugin and try to control the camera via that??
       
      Frustrating
