  • Minor grumble only about the hot shoe cover. From a design point of view, a two piece cover that slips so easily on and off the hot shoe is bound to be lost at some time or another. Please Olympus, ...
  • Saw on line that DigiDirect had the EM1 body only on special for A$1089 (after the Oly AU $300 rebate). But they did not have the MMF3. Ended up at Michaels in Melbourne, instead. Michaels matched ...
  • Still getting to grips with this camera.  It's certainly more challenging than my Olympus E-3, but I think I'm getting there. OK, IQ is not going to be in the same ball park as an SLR, but it's a ...
  • Wow, is all I can say. The colours and sharpness of the lens! But, there's a heap to learn yet! Apologies - full size images and hopefully EXIF is intact! A local weathervane I never noticed ...
  • Created discussions Kudos Fujifilm Australia
    You may recollect that I posted about a month ago about the faults with my HS50EXR. I sent it off to Fujifilm for repair on 14 February, telling them to take their time as I would be away for much ...
  • Replied in Yikes!!
    I'm hoping they replace the unit completely! I'm hoping replacement is more cost effective than repairs! :-)
  • Methinks not dental floss as it's not strong enough? Length end to end of the finished product is anywhere between 6" and 8". It really depends on the size of the lens itself. Thanks for asking!
  • I hate the thought of losing lens caps and tend to buy after market jobs with a loop to attach a lens cap keeper of looped string/thread so one does not lose the said lens cap. The Panny Lumix LX-3 ...
  • My HS50EXR was sent to Fujifilm in Sydney for a sensor clean yesterday, yes, Valentine's Day 14 Feb, 2014. In addition to the sensor clean, I've asked them to check the sensor alignment as there is ...
  • Created discussions E-5 Mk II?
    The mutterings around seem to suggest that an E-7 may be a long time coming, like in never, maybe or when Hell freezes over. BUT, what about an update to the E-5? Canon does it - the EOS 5D is up ...
  • Hi Dicky I was in Hong Kong for a close friend's wedding, so I bought it there! I do like the Fuji colours from the HS50EXR. It's the closest to the Olympus E-300 and E-3 with which I am muchly ...
  • Created discussions HS50EXR Dust Bunnies
    Fujifilm has very kindly included dust bunnies in my sample of the HS50EXR.  I thought it had migrated, but no, they are still there. So I'll have to pack it up to send to Sydney for a quick clean ...
  • Created discussions Getting to know the HS50EXR
    Having bought this unit in November 2013, I've since been having fun learning how to get the best out of it. To date I've not started to use the DR and EXR settings. As far as settings are ...
  • Created discussions New to Fujifilm with HS50EXR
    I bought the HS50EXR in Hong Kong mid-October and I'm still getting to grips with it. I'm used to DSLRs (Olympus E-3 and E-300) and compacts (Ricoh GX, Canon G7, Panasonic LX-3 and Nikon S9100) but ...
