  • I have the X-E2 for my main body and an X-M1 for a second body. While I like the X-E2's EVF, I don't mind not having one in the X-M1. I like the smaller size and normally use it with the 27mm ...
  • Replied in Fuji X-M1 help
    I hope someone with both cameras can give you a good comparison, but I have only the X-M1. The Fuji 27mm f2.8 stays on it most of the time, so it is my small, lightweight, slightly wide-angle ...
  • They must be talking about motion blur because there is no "direction" for blur caused by lens softness or digital sensor anti-aliasing. Of course there are areas of a photo that are more out of ...
  • For sharpening IMO nothing can beat deconvolution, which actually improves the focus by correcting the blur itself. This is as opposed to, for example, unsharp mask which tricks the eye by adding ...
  • Hi Dave, I've been using the freebie Perfect Effects 8 for awhile now and really like it; their Dynamic Contrast is great even if you never used the other effects. My usual workflow is PhotoNinja ...
  • Use the manual method when any processing software's auto color functions don't suit you. They will never be perfect for every scene, situation, or artistic preference. For Photo Ninja it's very ...
  • I love my Fujifilm cams, but one thing I miss that I had in my previous m43 rig is a built-in 4:3 aspect ratio. I tend to end up cropping tighter than 3:2 in pretty much every keeper shot, ...
  • Yes it does; maybe he just made do with one he already had when his editor said "Quick, take this X-T1 and go get a pic of the two popes!" :-D
  • I see what you mean after I found the pic you were referring to. I really like the Lensmate thumb rest for my X-E2, and I've found it also fits my X-M1 nicely. In a camera store yesterday I ...
  • Replied in Drop Box
    Skies are supposed to be cyan, not blue. <big grin> Dick
  • Replied in Drop Box
    Thought I would try it with my favorite raw processor, PhotoNinja. Here it is using the "Scenic Vivid" preset and some highlight reduction, then a little of my standard sharpening with Focus Magic ...
  • Well, dream on, guys. For me, I'd just as soon have the book sooner. When I got the notice from Rocky Nook I replied to them, "When the book is finally available nobody will still be using the ...
  • I've used KEH twice with very good results. The first time I sold my Canon 5D and extensive lens set when I moved to the m43 Panasonic system. Then I sold the Panasonic stuff to move to the Fuji ...
  • I was using forced flash, so I thought it would do the adjustment needed. Next time I will use ISO 400 as you suggest and maybe crank in some exposure comp if needed. In this kind of situation I ...
  • Created discussions X-E2 flash question
    I took some photos of my 2-year-old granddaughter hunting Easter eggs inside last Sunday. I normally shoot under those conditions with my X-E2 on auto-ISO with max 1600 in P-mode and no flash. ...
  • I got the free Perfect Effects 8 and think it's very good, almost on a par with the Nik modules that I use mostly. No crashing or other problems using PE8 with CS6 for me. The main reason I like ...

    Hey, I was just moving one guy around; now that's some imagination. :-D Dick

    Sorry, dogs don't count. Nice job though. ;-) Dick

    I took this photo yesterday of some people enjoying a nice Spring afternoon (Fuji X-E2 with 55-200 zoom). When I got home I decided the composition needed some improvement; Photoshop to the ...
