Hello from Iowa


Recommended Posts

I own the Fuji X-T1 and X-H1. I own several Fuji lenses but I tend to use 3rd party vintage manual glass which I find quite enjoyable to use. I'm testing a photo here taken from my Flickr account that showcases the Tokina 100-300mm Zoom lens with 1.4 extender.

Great photo! Blue Jays are tricky to get good photos like you have, they tend to fly away as soon as the lens cap comes off 😀.

So do I just copy the BB code from flickr and paste it anywhere on the page like other forums or is there some other trick I need to perform to get it to post?

I do not use Flickr, so I do not know what their BB code is. All I did was copy the second link you provided, (starting at https: and ending at  _k.jpg — leave off the [img] and [/img] tags) and pasted it into the message.

After a moment, a message popped up asking if I wanted to paste it as the image or as a plain link. I did this twice, the first time I had it paste in as the image and the second time as a link. Nothing fancy or tricky.

    • Hello, it worked!! thanks for your help
    • I don't know whether I've missed something along the way, but here's my view: Firstly, I'm new to the digital world, having used film all the way (still using film as well as plates on occasion). I've always used prime lenses, with zooms being something  of a reluctant inclusion to my armoury. I'm still using the old glass a bit on my X-T5. However, I've found to my surprise that the kit lens, for a start, (the 16-80mm f4) is actually very good. I've also got the 55 - 200mm and the 35mm prime (this being my "nifty fifty". I'm happy with the coverage and happy with the IQ from them all at the middle aperture ranges which I use so much. Time was when I wouldn't have given a zoom much consideration at all, but these lenses aren't letting me down in any way. In fact, I was seriously impressed for once to find a kit lens which was a "keeper" (weather-resistance included!). If someone was starting out, they could get by very easily with that on its own for quite some time, without feeling the need to replace it soon after purchase. I only actually got the kit lens because I had nothing which would speak to the camera, and I wanted the camera to have every chance to show what it could do Given that my most used lenses on my SLRs were the 50mm and 135mm, I had those in effect from the off in one lens. OK, they're not as quick as primes, but that isn't an issue for me. When I bought the X-T5 my intention was to buy a full set of primes over time, but I'm not feeling the need to at the moment. Am I missing something here? Genuine question. Don't be afraid to point fingers and laugh if I am missing something. I'm a big boy and I can take it! But, yes, that is my question and my quandary before I commit any further money in the Fujifil/Fujinon arena. 
    • Tomaz, do you see the flickering indoors with artificial lighting, or also outdoors in natural light ?  When I am at low f numbers e.g. 1.4, 1.8 with a shutter speed e.g. 1/125 and with a scene lit by a fluorescent lamp @50Hz (a simple lamp without an intelligent driver, for example Helvar, that operates at higher frequencies), I see this “flickering” in the EVF like you do. That is caused by the interaction between the frequency of the light source with the EVF refresh rate. You can use Flickerless Shutter Speed Setting to eliminate this effect. 
    • Good morning, people. I'm a recent convert to mirrorless and an even newer convert to Fuji, so please, if my questions appear foolish, make allowances, please!
