DP1: (Part 2)No matter which lens I mated the cameras with (about four to five of them), after you think you’ve locked focus by the confirmation green light and the beep sound, you move your focus area away from the subject to re-frame for better composition like everybody normally would before taking a shot. The subject would be slightly out of focus (when it is not at the focus point at the time when the shutter release was pressed)!
After I found out about this issue and asked the Fujifilm rep, he actually QUIETLY confirmed my finding. We were very curious why no one brought this up in the their review. Now you understand why I withheld the exact location of this showroom earlier.
Did the reps and I do something wrong? Is there anybody else that has the same experience? If you do, how do you go about it?
I am on the verge of buying the X system as I like everything else so much. This focus problem is absolutely a deal breaker. Anybody in the know, please shed some light. Thank you.
My wife is about to buy one - this would be a deal breaker for her too
paul simon king: well i that case that kinda rules out self timer pics too then, or pics actualted by passing animals triggering a infra red etc?
Of course it's his flaming pic, it wouldnt have been taken if he hadnt set it all up and posted it
So, someone buys 1000 cameras and takes them to a monkey sanctuary to get them to take pictures themselves, then collects the cameras afterwards and publishes the images then they are all up for grabs by the first human cheeky monkey that comes along?
How someone else can claim an image they had absolutley no part whatsoever in is a mark of an inconsiderate society. No one except that camera owner had anything to do with the images , except to steal them from him. Immoral and unethical
The day the monkey pays for all the camera gear will be the day the monkey can have the copyright.It is an unfair society where anything that isn't stamped with ownership is up for grabs by any opportunist, irrespective of who's efforts lead to its creation.
It's the same sort of excuse used for nicking other peoples things because they 'left them lying around' or because they didn't have their name sewn into it ,(copyright stamp).Do you let your kids do that?
It is stealing. Just legal stealing

The profile support for the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM lens must be chosen manually - It does not auto recognise.
Implementing without choosing the correct lens profile manually results in unpredictable effects
Esign: In a perfect portrait, everything but one eye should be very slightly out of focus, with the smoothest bokeh possible.

ACR 8.4 for CS6 (Win)
as if we don't have better things to do with our day.....seriously
- anyway today the updates declared themselves available (through LR and PS6) and have updated accordingly I have yet to check if successful
looking to me like this isn't for any non CC versions.....?
Thinking of getting one, I checked one out at the local store and it does seem to focus reasonably quickly - especially compared to the various `"X-1" versions.
Also the EVF , while taking some getting used to when coming from DSLR territory, seems to be fast enough at switching orientation when cahnging from landscape to portrait and back.
what I forgot to check was the focus-recompose ability. I have never used anything but the centre Focus point on my cameras (5Dxx) and use focus -recompose for all sorts of situations, force of habit, something Ive done for decades.
Please can anyone tell me - does focus -recompose and also exposure lock exist/work?
I ask because this is what Im used to and really want a small 'street' camera where I can use the technique I am familiar with to get the fastest way to catch what I see.
Video? not interestedComplaints about ISO 3200 and above? Not interested.
Hmm MY LR5.3 says there's nothing to upadte as it's up to date
looking at these RAW examples the fuji x Pro looks softer nad less saturated than the Fuji X100s
OK so I got a letter, "quick -" I thought " go to adobe site, find out which cards I have used there and cancel them" -except I can't find which they were on Adobe site...someone must know....?
as an aside they REALLY should have known this would be tried so how they failed to protect against it is flaming negligence IMO
Dylan Borgman: Can anyone clarify if the LAB color readout is simply a color inspector or it allows us to manipulate curves in LAB space?
not ccntesting your LR observations in the slightest but is LAB in Ps not used a lot more for a/b changes since Dan Marguilis Book? A lot of people I know seem to use itt for that
Kwik-E-Mart: Come on... I know you guys can do it!Still waiting for Facial Recognition!
easy solution - just upload them all to Facebook!:p
The internet killed them on price - they lost their way immediately the internet hit - Im just surprised they managed to cling on for so long.
Customer service was never better than average
Serves them right- they put most of the local independents out of business by undercutting them way back when and they're just getting a taste of their own medicine.
Rang Adobe to double check that I would UNEQUIVOCALLY be able to upgrade to Photoshop CS6 boxed or downloadable version, when it came out, at an upgrade price.-the lady I spoke to only could refer me to the info on their own website which she agreed was ambiguous ; in that it did not specify whether users of INDIVIDUAL CS products would be able to take advantage of the upgrade offer, nor whether the upgrade to CS6 (from CS4) would be for a boxed/downloadable version or whether it would be only for the cloud version.In other words it is still not clear whether users of Photoshop (as opposed to the full CS suites) CS3/CS4 will have an upgrade path to CS6 Photoshop which can be installed on their computer- it is not clear whether the upgrade path (CS4-CS6) will be for boxed/downloadable versions or for cloud only versions ( I asked very specifically about this).Nor is it clear whether the upgrade price will be within the usual upgrade price parameters.
