  • Created discussions X100T: crazy sharp
    As I'm experimenting with my new X100T, one thing I notice in all my test shots... it is crazy sharp, edge to edge.  I'm not much of a pixel peeper, but I've got it up to 300% and the image still ...
  • If memory serves, my (older) Fujis go into silent mode if you press and hold the Display button.  Doesn't seem to work that way on the X100T, and looking at the manual the only way to go Silent is ...
  • Replied in Solved!
    Noticed I was running C1 V8.0.1 on my Mac, and V8.1 on Windows.  Updated the C1 on my Mac and the import works perfectly now.  Yeah!
  • My XS1 zooms and focuses smoothly without any hitches or hangups.
  • Got my new X100T today, charged the batteries, formatted a card, and took some images, all raw .RAF files. But when I tried to import them into my Capture One software, nothing imported. And X100T ...
  • Created discussions Cruise around South America
    On March 1, we leave on a cruise from Buenos Aries, around the tip of South America, and back to Fort Lauderdale through the Panama Canal.  Should be a great trip, with some superb photo ops. Never ...
  • Replied in No help here...
    Yesterday, it was 80F (27C) in Dallas, TX. :)  It was why I moved from Canada to here.  So no help from me...
  • Created discussions (XS1) The one that got away
    I was re-visiting my Galapagos on line albums when I saw the image below. I was just about to crop the flying bird (top left) when I realized it actually added to the picture, not detracted. Do you ...
  • After much further deliberation, and chewing a fingernail or two, I have made a change.  I want a bigger sensor for more flexibility for all around shooting, so I bought a (used) X100T.  So now my ...
  • As an old car enthusiast, I prefer manual transmissions, even though honestly todays electronic automatics shift and perform better than I ever could. Similarly, our increasingly sophisticated ...
  • Created discussions XS1 and XF1 on a major journey
    Last year, I took only my XS1 (and LX7) on a Galapagos cruise. Main reason bing that there was a lot of small boat activity and I was concerned about salt water dunking. The pictures turned out ...
  • Created discussions GH4 firmware update
    Panasonic has release an update for the GH4.  As far as I can tell, only video parameters are updated.  But I have no real still photo firmware requests so I'm not sure I will even download and ...
  • It would hold two m43 bodies.  But the bag sold quite a while ago.
  • Created discussions (XF1) Advanced Pro Soft focus
    Just playing with the various aspects of the FX1 (also applies to my XS1).  Here is an image showing the use of the Advanced Pro Soft focus. Works pretty well for a pocket camera.  However, one of ...
  • Thanks.  I checked out the link and while it looks very complete it seems to be almost all video.  I'm more interested in still photography, although video is not out of the question.
  • As far as I know there is no update past the one you have.
  • Thanks Ryan and that certainly is an option.  The GH4 is so loaded with options it is hard to find an option and then read about it.  I was hoping to find a user book that would describe a ...
  • Created discussions GH4/GX7 Media App notes
    All functions of the Media App worked well on my older Android phone, and also on my wife's iPhone.   But if you try to save geotagging on a new Android (running Android 4.4.4, - KitKat), you will ...
  • Created discussions GH4 user reference book?
    Since I had a GH2, and a GH3, the GH4 is not unfamiliar to me. But the amount of options that are available is huge, and the manual is a bit sketchy. So I'm wondering if there may be a (hopefully) ...
  • Replied in John
    My software EXIF just say things like 1/40 but once uploaded to DPR it shows up as 10/400.  Not sure why.  Same speed, just a different notation. John
