  • Thanks for your reply. With that feature the XE2 or s is even more appealing. As one who prefers eye level composition, not having the feature in the lcd monitor is not an issue.
  • Created discussion thread XE2s rotating viewfinder data?
    Hello all, new to the forum and have decided there is a Fuji X in my near future. I have had hands on with the XT-1 and 10 and prefer the 1 for its added controls, solid build and generous ...
  • Replied in Eye-level
    Jim, I purchased my LX-7 with the LVF2 and I keep it on all the time. I prefer eye-level over arms-length composition so I seldom use the LCD screen. To me, it has been an essential accessory, not ...
  • Cyril, with the exception of a Nikkormat, none of my Nikons had Photomic heads. I used a handheld Weston meter but depended upon my eyes, experience and a mentally imbedded zone system for ...
  • Cyril, I can accept a bit of weight if the camera fits in my compact bag. When I was much younger tramping through jungles carrying four Nikon F bodies, one with a motor drive, and lenses ranging ...
  • Cyril, although the 1" sensor has its appeal, the TZ100 doesn't float my boat. I'm not particularly enamored with miniaturization and find it easier to steady a body no smaller than the LX7 or for ...
  • My LX7 has the external finder, while adding a bit of bulk, is superior in size to the TZ100's and has the added advantage of tilting upwards for low angle shots. I find the zoom range to be ...
  • Replied in Form vs Function
    I have a number of very nice multitiools in a drawer that are products of some very clever engineering. They can be very useful when my tool kit is not available. But they are at best a functional ...
  • My FZ200 recently took a fatal dunking that gives me a clear path to replacement. Absent any substantial improvement in image quality, I would otherwise have held off on an upgrade but now the ...
  • Replied in Oh, deer . . .
    I agree with your comments. I recognize the FZ200's limits when it comes to dynamic range and try to expose right and adjust in post. Depth of field can be an advantage and a curse. I shoot RAW for ...
  • Thanks for the hot shoe tips chasman1. I may wind up using a multipurpose adapter and thread a rail to accept a screw or just buy one you mentioned. Birds are a challenge to capture in flight. It ...
  • Replied in To FZ or not FZ
    Thanks for the kind words, Rodger.  Much as I am tempted by the improvement in image quality the FZ1000 provides, the cost, like that of the LX100, weighs heavily on my cost preference curve. ...
  • Thanks for the comment, RandTx. I haven't probed to limits of the FZ200's low light gathering capability yet, but am planning a test comparing all the photo gear I have on hand including cell ...
  • Created discussion thread FZ200 at 600mm and lower
    I haven't used my FZ200 at 600mm very often but I found the lens to be sharp at that and other focal lengths. Focus is accurate and helped by small sensor depth of field. There are plenty of good ...
