Hello,

I am considering buying a X-T1. Actually, I am convinced about its capabilities and I am already in love with its "look and feel" (I handled it in a store nearby), I only need the stars to be aligned and money to come in my account.

 

I want to ask you a (probably) stupid question: are there any rumours / signs about a new generation of high-end camera from Fujifilm? X-T10 is nice, but a deal braker for me is the lack of mettering dial. Is X-T2 somewhere on the horizont?

 

Thanks!

No, nothing in sight for the moment. I think that until the X-PRO2 will come out in late 2015 we won't heard any

rumors on a successor of the X-T1. The X-T2 in 2016? Maybe, maybe not. I don't think we will see an X-T2 anytime soon.

January will be exactly 2 years after the first releas of the T... but it would stil be 8 month from now, if you think you can wait until that

date, go for it. The problem with electronics is that there is always something better coming shortly after :rolleyes:

 

But as you said 2016 isn't so close

I still have Canon 5D Mark III's and a ton of glass with no intention of getting rid of it, but I purchased an X-T1 and now, several lenses.  The lenses are ultimately the reason you invest in the system.  The bodies will keep coming if the lenses are worth a darn.  I think they are.  I enjoy shooting my X-T1 and X100T, but I still have a Fujifilm wish list that includes a flash system, better AF and tracking, even better EVF to name a few.  The pros of the system are the size and weight, image quality (sensor & lenses), and it is simply fun to use.  I enjoy photography; for me, not for anyone else.  It really does not matter what "brand" I use if I like the results I get.

      Hello Guys

      My name is Amir, I'm a Photographer from Iran.
      I recently Joined this Community because I need your advice or opinion on a situation here.

      I'm a film shooter and recently I decided to buy a Fujifilm X Camera. I mainly do Landscapes, along with some portraits and street.

      I'm on a tight budget (roughly 1100$) and new Fuji products are very expensive here! (more than their normal price worldwide!) so I'm not in a good financial position to buy a Fuji X-T2...
      But recently I came across two options here. one is a brand new Fujifilm X-T1+18-55 kit lens around 800$ price tag (special offer) and the other one is a used X-T20+18-55 kit lens (roughly 2000 shots) around 950$.

      Depending on my needs, which one do you suggest? I'm planning to go with it for a minimum of 3 years so its a crucial choice for me here and also the weather sealing is a real deal breaker for me.

      what do you suggest? what should I do?

      Greetings from Roswell, GA.  I've been into photography since the 1960's, Long time Nikon user, just switched to Fuji.  I sold some images with the Nikon and have really enjoyed using it.  I'm giving it to my son who has a keen interest in photography and a good eye.  Thought about getting a full frame Nikon but just could not deal with the size and weight.  I've been fascinated with what Fuji is doing to advance digital photography ever since using an original X100 that belonged to a fellow photographer.  Decided to make the Fuji jump when I picked up a new, USA legal X-T1 and the 2.8 kit lens (not like any kit lens I've ever seen before, this baby impresses in all respects).   The deal seemed to be "too good to be true", got the camera and lens for $899 from B&H.   First round of sooc test shots blew me away - bokeh is incredible, as is image quality and the colors are amazing.  Camera feels perfect in my hands and this is the nicest piece of kit I've owned in a long time.  Could not be happier with my choice.  Looking forward to participating here and learning a lot.  Here is the first sooc test shot I took in classic chrome, everything else default camera jpeg.  I have already bonded with the Fuji!

      When and how are costume settings invoked on the X-T1?  I'll primarily shoot in Manuel mode, but also use apeture priority or shutter priority, setting ISO usually at 200.  Doing so, I have no idea what is being used for dynamic range, film simulation, white balance, color setting, sharpness, highlight tones, shadow tones, etc.  How do I know when a custom setting is being used and when my choice of dial settings are taking precedence over everything else?  Confused...  Dave
