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.

Sorry, but I don't get it: Consideringg the pixel density/size the 16MP of a DX camera (X-E1 or a D7000) are nearly identical to the D800s 36MP. So, why are the D8x0s so prone to camera shake? Thanks, Martin

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...

Dear Fuji experts Does anyone know of a grip (with L plate) that fits the Fuji X-M1? I have found enough (Ebay, Amazon, ...) for X-E1, X-E2 and X-T1 but having a hard time finding any for the X-M1/X-A1. Any help? Thanks! A

1  In manual mode the viewfinder is often very dim indoors, especially if you set the shutter speed to the flash sync speed. However just as you press the shutter release the finder brightens momentarily. Is there any way to keep this active all the time?  2  Do the Fuji shoe mounted flash automatically set the shutter to the flash sync speed (ie EF-20), as I can't find a reference in the camera manual. I am thinking of getting the EF-20. I have just bought two of these cameras and results so...
