  • Every house in Hong Kong I  have lived in has included 4 in its number. I went out in 1977 to No.44, moved to No 14 and now live in 40! I  don't think I have had particularly bad luck but perhaps ...
  • Thanks for everyone's replies to my question.  I cannot thank everyone personally as there are too many, I am afraid, even though I think that normal politeness and acknowledging peoples' replies ...
  • Same on mine.  It does not come on when shutter speed is set very low (outside any possible way for the IS to compensate)  So it cannot really be said to be a shake warning.  It really just seems ...
  • I am glad to hear you are recovered, but sorry to see you go.  I appreciated your fresh view of the N1 system, as an experienced newcomer with feet in another camp. Good luck, anyway tom
  • The Iphone has an 8Mp sensor, and an F2.2 lens.  I think that if you chose the subject carefully with little DR, and with good light (so you could use base iso) there would be very little to ...
  • Elyharbour hi, i was indeed trying to address your original post as I was not quite sure where you were coming from. I had several goes at replying but they all got very long so thought I would ...
  • I dont think you can really have a conversation about a 'best' camera without defining what you are doing with your photos. If you only view images on a mobile phone, and are not interested in ...
  • CaCreeks Thanks for the comment about not being able to turn off help messages.  I guess I will just have to live with them (even though I think I could turn them off in X100 Thanks again Tom
  • I have actually answered his post to the best of my ability.  I just picked up an X30 and tried my X20 case on it, I expect most people upgrading would do the same. Without having the JB case I ...
  • I am not sure what the JB case looks like, but I can now confirm that the x30 is very little wider  than the X20 and that the tripod mount is in the same position.  My X20 case is wide enough for ...
  • When i was last a frequent browser, and sometimes contributor to this forum (a few years ago, when I had a new X10) it was a pretty helpful place, and people tried to help others.  It was a useful ...
  • Jeff Thanks for being kind enough to reply to both of my posts on this subject.  It's strange that Fuji, who seem to understand the needs of photographers, would leave something so annoying when it ...
  • Created discussions No more advice on X20?
    So nobody objects to the 'guidance messages' on x20 and I think on X30?  (The message explaining what the mode you have selected on the PASM dial does). Or maybe you have all turned them off, in ...
  • I am not going to Bulgaria the summer, but am to Barcelona, which is reputed to be the theft capital of Europe. I have just bought a used X20, which I will take instead of my more expensive gear. J ...
  • Jeff Thanks, that is where I found it on my X10 as well, but there does not appear to be an entry in the X20 set up pages.  Maybe I am just missing something Thanks for your reply, though tom
  • Created discussions Stop annoying X20 messages
    I am sure this is a dumb question and I am missing something in the manual.  I recently picked up an X20.....didn't like the extra size of the X30 and IQ is almost the same.....but can't find out ...
  • Replied in Lens accident
    Very bad luck, the only good thing is that it was the cheap lens that fell! I am sure that you know that there are a lot of 10-30 for sale on ebay very cheaply if you wait and bid cannily, just ...
  • I am only viewing on an ipad, but it looks to me as though the electronic shutter version is exposed a little bit less than the mechanical one, even though they are supposed both to be at 1/80 th. ...
  • Have you any ideas why this happened?  I find that one of my V2s frequently overexposes for the first couple of shots of the day, resulting in shots something like this.   I don't remember that it ...
  • I agree that a roadmap would be a great start. it could not be too specific when it comes to bodies, as I suspect specs are subject to change almost to the last minute to meet competition, but ...
