  • Yes - actually classic chrome for the whole lot (I was really just taking s few snaps and being lazy) with B&W conversions in SilverEfex afterwards. Jon -- http://thephotographersblock.wordpress.com ...
  • The front thread of the X10/20/30 lens is an irritating size (39.5mm) which makes finding filters to fit very difficult. But if you get the Fuji lens hood, filter and cap kit (currently offered ...
  • Thanks Tom for the kind comments.  Looking forward to a lot more X30 use over the next couple of weeks! Cheers, Jon
  • I know I'm late to the party here but I'd go for the highest quality and fastest glass you can afford (especially if there is a chance you may go on a night safari). Even better if you can get ...
  • I've had the X30 for only a very short time but I'm rather impressed - despite having the same image quality it's turned out to be a much bigger upgrade from its predecessors than I'd initially ...
  • Looks great at the lowest ISOs (in raw) where there is more detail than the E-M1 that I compared with - at pixel peeping level - but by the time you get to ISO800 the tables are turned and beyond...

  • A few early images from the X30 (not got to 100 shots yet).  I never quite got on with the X10/20 but early impressions are that, although there haven't been any gains in image quality, the X30 is ...
  • And finally we get there..... Slightly narrower...because it's not the same FOV as a 50mm lens.  It's equivalent to 60mm. Same height...because you're comparing a 4:3 sensor with 3:2 aspect ratio S ...
  • Not quite - it's the equivalent of 60mm field of view but I agree it's a great lens...I have one too, and also highly recommend its longer 60mm sibling. -- http://thephotographersblock.wordpress.com ...
  • I love my E-M1.  Can't comment on how it compares to Sony but unless you are a shallow depth of field addict, then there's precious little different in image quality between APSC and m43 nowadays, ...

    Close!  Samyang 85/1.4.  I was trying to see how well I could focus at max aperture without magnifying the view in the EVF.  I think the answer is that for critical applications I need to do the ...

    That third picture is very sweet!
  • Replied in First attempts
    Not an obvious use for this new lens.  Anyone like to hazard a guess as to what it might be?  All I'm going to say at this stage is that I think I'm going to thoroughly enjoy using it despite some ...
  • They are both good lenses, but the 18-180 really needs an image stabilised body unless you are happy to concentrate mainly on using it outdoors on sunny days. The 14-150 Leica lens is extremely ...
  • ...but I quite like this photo from Brighton last Saturday afternoon: And this one from London: A handful of other shots from last weekend in my latest blogpost if you really have nothing better to ...
  • As recommended by others I use the Apple SD Card Reader to transfer to my iPad (mini).  I tweak images in Snapseed.  And then use Smugmug to backup to the Internet.  Never tried to read from the ...
  • Replied in E1- Resizing
    Very interesting landscape! And there I was thinking 5MP is enough😀. E-1 coming out to play on a London walk tomorrow evening .... (Others welcome to join; meet at St Pauls tube stn at 6pm and ...
  • I use my 43 lenses all the time on an E-M1 - 11-22, 14-54ii, 18-180 and 50-200. Very happy (indeed the ability to use those lenses, all of which I already had, was the main reason for buying the ...
  • Hope you enjoy it as much as I do mine.  It's a very competent camera and a delight with smaller primes. I don't have a grip (but do have a Franiec grip on my D Lux, which I agree works ...
  • PS my card is a Lexar and has so far been fine -- http://thephotographersblock.wordpress.com http://jonschick.smugmug.com/
