I switched over to Fuji from Nikon a few years ago and seem to have become quite a gear collector. When I used Nikon I had a Nikon D7200 and the 24mm f1.8, 35mm f1.8, 50mm 1.8, 85mm f1.8, and 60mm f2.8D lenses. Since moving to Fuji I have managed to obtain the following:
cameras: X-T3, X-T30, and recently the X100V
lenses: Laowa 9mm f2.8, Fuji 10-24mm, Fuji 16mm F2, Fuji 16mm f1.4, Fuji 16-80, Fuji 18-55, Fuji 23mm f2, Fuji 27mm, Fuji 35mm f2, Mitakon 35mm, Fuji 50mm F2, Fuji 56mm, Voigtlander 58mm f1.4, Fuji 55-200, and the Fuji 90mm (still also have the Nikon 60mm f2.8D).
So I love all of these lenses, but honestly have way too many to put them all to use as I should. I am wanting to move to a minimalist set up. I recently purchased the X100V and instantly fell in love with that camera. The one lens design has really helped me rediscover what I loved about photography upon first starting out. So the X100V is staying with me. So I am wanting to sell some of my excess and need some advice about what to keep. At the moment I am thinking about keeping the X-T3 with the Laowa 9mm, Fuji 16 f1.4, Fuji 56 f1.2, Fuji 90mm f2, Fuji 16-80mm, Mitakon 35mm, and Voigtlander 58mm f1.4 (just for the fun of manual focusing).
My question is, does this sound like a reasonable set-up? I really want to move away from zooms (except for the 16-80 for fun).
Hi, I am sorry if I am posting this question in the wrong place. I'm new here. And, thank you for reading this.
Like many, I have film simulation recipes under the Custom Settings. I would like to know what Custom Settings Name (i.e. film simulation recipe name) I selected for a photo I already took. Is there a way to save a tag under EXIF metadata or any other similar method that one can check later with each photo? If relevant, I am using a XE-3.
Question from a newbie with a used X-T2 and aging eyesight. The YouTube gurus seem inconsistent with regard to whether or not the 3,690,000 dot EVF on the X-T3 is a noticable improvement over the 2,360,000 dot one in the X-T2. It's not the only reason to upgrade of course, but I'm looking for any justification I can find! Does anyone with experience of both care to opine on the relative merits of the two EVFs?
Can anyone help please with a X-T3 front dial question... I lost the ability today to use the front dial for changing my ISO and F Stop... the command dial is set to D1 EV, D2 ISO, D3 F... rear dial SS...
This seems to be the correct way... any thoughts please
Does anyone have experienced using these three items together successfully?
I know the camera and lens weigh just over 2 lbs and the gimbal will take 4.4 lbs so I don’t anticipate weight being an issue.
But the camera plus lens is pretty long and some long camera/lens combos apparently won’t work.
If any of you with experience using all three care to weigh in, I would be in your debt.
I am looking to get the 56 1.4 Viltrox, it looks great! I have the 1.2 APD but for filming its just too slow, same for wedding photos i need something much faster and i think this is it for me.
However I am also looking at the 33mm, but there have been mark II versions of the 23 and 85 released recently and i feel this one will get a mark II as well. Anyone know when?
My apologies to everyone. I posted this question in Spanish to the Fujistas forum and then copied it here without thinking to write it in English...
I have just bought a Godex V860 and I can't work out how to synchronise it with the second curtain on my X-T2.
Despite leaving the 2nd curtain activated on the camera, when I shoot at 1/1000 it comes out as if I were taking the photo in synch with the 1st curtain. Do I have to activate something on the Godex?
