Hello,

I noticed today that the latch which is turned to open the battery chamber on my xh1 battery grip does not snap shut, but dangles freely.  Is this by design, or a flaw on my grip? Am I missing something to lock it down? It doesn't cause any issues for me, just slightly annoying.  Thanks for any responses!

      After moving to Fuji X system I extensively used large number of Trans-X bodies and XF lens. Most of them perform excellent optically and very good mechanically. I think Fuji is doing great job designing and supporting gear.
      The only thing is bothering me all the time - if the electronics is dead lens typically becomes fully unusable. There are numerous third party or adapted fully manual lens that solve that concern. But what if I want to keep using my favorite Fuji optics mechanically? I've performed numerous attempts and discovered potential of converting XF 35mm F1.4 and XF 27mm F2.8, and recently found highly satisfying result of adapting Fujinon XF 27mm F2.8 that requires relatively low effort.
      Here's resulting article explaining what can you do with electronically dead Fujinon XF 27mm F2.8 lens to bring it back to life in much more compact frame of Industar 50-2.
      Alternatively you can also use adapted Fuji XF 27mm F2.8 lens on other APS-C cameras like Sony or Canon.

      By mistake I changed my XH1 attached to battery grip with a third party AC cable. Strange noise and camera couldn’t turn on and i sent it to Fujifilm technical service centre. Technician said grip is ok but 3 barreries were burned as well as motherboard and had to replace it. Then see if the other parts are working probably or need to change more parts! I’m so worry! Any idea? Do you think my camera will be like before this accident? Please share your experience with me. Thank you

      Hey guys,
      So, I used the XH-1 to shoot a short film last year and it felt just right for a low budget film, that is shot in natural light, little time and only a tripod for stabilization. Really was drawn to the ETERNA, film simulation that was said to be ideal for shooting movies. I found the low contrast it provided - allowed more flexibility in post, i color corrected in Premiere which has its own library of film stocks to apply. But, I will enjoyed the look it provided - especially given it's a DSLR and not a camcorder. With that, you still face the highlights being blown out when you are shooting alongside a window. But, that can be sort of fixed in post. In summation, I'd say this could be a long term example of what can work on low budget projects. 
      p.s. really liked the lens as well - it allowed me to of course maintain focus on my actors even when I was in really tight/close settings.
      any thoughts or comments, please let me know - i am very open to feedback
