I use the zone system for exposure, like Ansel Adams and the many many photographers since him that have adopted his system of exposure. This requires taking a spot meter reading of values in the scene. Most often the objects in the scene that one takes meter readings from are quite small. I've been able to use the spot meter on my Canon 5d for this purpose, which is small enough, though sometimes I wish it was even smaller. Only sometimes do I consider carrying a dedicated 1 degree spot...

Hi all,i want to add a wide angle lens to my gear but i'm a little bit confused.Comparing some MTF charts from lenstip i've fond this: 16-50 center 16-50 corners 15-45 center .... wow 15-45 corners 14 The 16-50 (that i own and for this reason i put it into the bunch) was tested with an XE1 as the 14, whereas for the 15-45 they used an XT2. I like very much the 14 but the 15-45 at 15mm seems to be hard to beat in terms of resolution, size, cost.....Given the different price point, i think...

Fujifilm XE1 is my first camera and I love the fuji colors. I have tried other mirrorless such Olympus em1, Sony A7ii and Leica Q but none of them produce the nice skin tones like the Fujifilm and I have sold them. I am very weak in editing and don't wish to spend too much time editing the photos either. Currently I own the Xe3 and a couple of fuji lens which I love. Having no experience with canon and nikon DSLR, i recent chanced upon a video showing how Canon produce beautiful portraits...

I have a x-e1 and am thinking about buying a x-e3.  Could anyone who has used both comment on the differences in their evfs?  Also, how the does the evf of the x-e3 compare to the x-t20? Thanks in advance. --alan brown

I need to know the resulting focal length on the wide end and the zoom end if I would use this Tamron on an X-E1 using a Fringer Pro without a focal reducer. What will the 18-400 turn into? Thank you.

I have been using a Fujifilm X-E1 and have on occasion inadvertently activated multiple exposure without selecting the option through the menu. Possibly by quickly and accidentally pressing a sequence of buttons after the camera is turned on. How this occurs has escaped me. Has any other user of the X=E1 had this occur or know how this might happen? Thanks to anyone who can shed light on this peculiar issue.

So here is the scenario. The APS-C Tamron 18-400mm doesn't work well on full frame cameras as far as I read. Hence, it can work on a 600D but not a 5DMIV properly. However, the dilemma comes here. If I want to use it on a Fujifilm X-E1. Will there be any cropping? Isn't the Fuji X-E1 an APS-C sensor camera as well?  The real question: If I use Tamron 18-400mm EF mount on Fujifilm X-E1 using Viltrox EF-FX2 SPEEDBOOSTER, do I get the 18-400mm equivalent? Or will I get plenty of vignetting as if...

Hi all, I was hoping  someone could help me. I'm trying to see how faithfully Capture One and Lightshop recreate the in-camera Fuji profiles.  I previously had a X-E1 but found Lightroom's camera matching profiles oversaturated RAW compared to the Fuji JPEG. In particular adding a magenta tone into shadows.   Trying to decide whether to jump back in with Fuji from Sony and this is a huge deciding factor. Please could someone upload a JPEG and raw file of the same shot for me to capture in...

I've been using my second-hand Fuji X-E1 for a little under two years now, its been absolutely amazing. I'm planning on going on a long travel trip end of this year and want to make sure I have reliable gear. So having something that drains the life out of batteries crazy fast (and I mean really fast. 1 Full charge left in camera is drained before I even get to using it). Obviously this isn't ideal, but I really don't want to replace it unless really necessary. Any of you lovely people have...
