I am new to photography mostly smart phone pistures up until now. I recently bought my daughter a Nikon 1S1 and have probably used it more than her. I have enjoyed it so far but was interested in getting a camera of my own. My interest was piqued by the Fujifilm XE series with the manual controls and the image quality. However, I am on a budget and my first camera purchase will be my last for some time. The XE1 is within my budget at the current price but the AF issues mentioned are...
I have the 27mm already but given that with the current promotion I can pick up a new 35mm for £200 I'm wondering if it's worth supplementing it with the 35mm? I've seen a number of mentions of "magic" in this lens but any comparisons of the 27mm and 35mm are welcome. My other concern is focussing speed. I imagine using this as a walk-about lens at events/weddings etc.
I accidentally dropped my camera bag from a chair and landed upside down. I had just carelessly thrown my X-E1 in there without a care, boom! Dead EVF! It looks like when you break an old phone and the screen is white with a dim ghost of a display. No actual damage that I can see, so it must be internal. The LCD works fine and the pictures still turn out great. But I do rely on the viewfinder more than I thought, like in a bright sunny day when I want to manually focus a third party lens. Is...
I find that the v'finder on the X-E1 is not up to manual focusing. When I select the magnified view (by pressing the control wheel in) of my selected area, the v/finder seems to break up as focus moves in and out. As well as this, I find that polariser and grad filters are not easily used, as the v/finder does not not adjust to changes. Does anyone else experience unsatisfactory evf performance? Is the X E2 better? Does one really need an optical v/finder for these uses? Hope someone can help.
Dear all, I have been reading this forum for a while now, a lot of great photo and experienced photographer here. I own a Fuji Xe1 + 18-55mm for a while now and I want to extend my kit. I was planning to add the 35mm 1.4, I always liked 50mm field of view. I ordered the lens 2 weeks ago. The first copy I received had some haze and some dust inside the lens. I returned it, after close inspection the vendor agreed the lens had somehting wrong and he shipped another copy to me. The second copy...
I hope it's ok to start a new thread here. I posted a similar question before about picking up a camera, but this time I've narrowed it down to some choices and I'm leaning toward Ricoh GR. I tried GR for a day or two and I was really enjoying it. Of course I haven't mastered the full use of the camera just by using it for a few days, so I can't give a detailed opinion on it, but here are the things that I like and that are still holding me back from buying it. The good (for me): - Snap AF...
Sorry guy's but I cannot find the post that I found a year or two ago. I wish to brighten the scene in dark nighttime shots bright enough to not only manually focus but to better compose as well. Once upon a time I had found this switch in the MENU after reading someone's post. Now I suspect that the successive FW updates have re-set this switch setting and last night I couldn't see anything in the dark just as I had trouble with years ago. Does anyone know what setting allows the sensor to...
