  • Sorry for the delay. I went ahead and bought the A7ii.  Haven't really had a chance to use it, yet.  Busy with other production (we produce three television series). When I get more of a chance to ...
  • It seems that most of the discussion here is about shooting stills.  As much as I love shooting photos, I'm looking at the A7ii and A7s for video work.  I rented an A7s for a night-in-the-desert ...
  • Thanks.  I really don't want to sell all this Fuji gear (especially the lenses) if they will be bringing out bodies which do great (minimal acceptable performance these days) video.  But, if it ...
  • The big failing for the Fuji X cameras, for me, is the video.  I have an X100s, X-E1, X-E2, and a case full of Fuji lenses.  But, I need to be able to shoot professional video, from time to time, ...
  • I would suggest more focus. Not lens focus. Mental focus. What -- exactly-- do want the viewer to look at first in each photo? Then, where do you want the viewer's eyes to go. Have a plan before ...
  • So, what's the current thinking on the best charger for NP-95 (X100s) batteries?  With the Fuji charger, I can't tell when the battery is charged.  Plus, I need more chargers for all the batteries ...
  • I put in an order for the X100T when it was available for pre-order at B&H. Yesterday I cancelled the order.  After thinking about it a bit, I decided that the X100s I have is just fine, and that ...
  • Yeah, just goofing off with HDR.  Several images put together.  Just a ham-handed effort at post processing (something I almost never do). And yet . . . in the 16x20 print, it's just fine.  At ...
  • Does any of this matter? No. Two photos. One with a Fuji. One with a D800.  Is either "better?" D800  300mm Nikon
  • Bigpig, I had no idea this would develop the way it has, but it has been somewhat amusing to watch. It was mostly meant as a "Chill, Dude" message.  Shoot what you like, and resist the "mine is ...
  • Hate to do this to you, but since I AM the OP, I have a pretty good idea what I was referring to. Any format size that is not as large as 8x10 is "inferior" to that.  No particular size is "full ...
  • "Seriously, don't be so daft. Obviously '35mm' is considered 'full frame' because many of us come from a film background and relate to our existing lenses in 'full frame' FOV terms. Of course you ...
  • The "nonsense" is in calling 35mm "Full Frame." APS-C could be called "full frame," and 35mm could be "super frame," and 6x4.5 could be mega frame, etc. The idea that APS-C is somehow less than a ...
  • Created discussions Full Frame Nonsense
    Or, maybe it's better to say, there's no such thing as "full frame." Watch Zach's video on full frame. I've shot 4x5, 6x7, 6x6, 6x4.5, 35, and digital down to a small part of a postage stamp. You ...
  • Make no mistake.  I love my Fuji cameras.  In the effort to reduce the load, it would just be nice to be able to leave some of the other stuff at home. A couple of shots with the Fuji.
  • To those wondering about the even lighting . . . remember, as a top photographer told me when I was getting started . . . There are no shadows in the shade. ;)
  • Created discussions Why I can't go all Fuji
    I'd love to start selling off my Nikon system and go all Fuji.  I have the X100s, the X-E1 and the X-E2.  Have the 14mm, 23mm f/1.4, 35mm f/1.4, 18-55mm, 60mm Macro, and the 55-200mm Fuji lenses. ...
  • It's a very good lens, but you have to need it for it to be worthwhile.  I've had on for several years.  The focus was a bit sticky, so I sent it to Nikon, and it came back with a really good feel. ...
  • Replied in 180 2.8
    There were exchanges about insurance and leaving the lens or even camera bag in the car. Yes, I know that we shouldn't leave the cameras in the car, but sometimes that's going to happen. I like to ...
  • Just a general suggestion. Decide WHAT is the important element in the photo. Decide WHERE you want the viewer's eye to start, and where you want the eye to go within the frame. Compose with those ...
