  • I didn't say anything about your post specifically. No need to make it personal. I was commenting on the  quantity of replies on that lens with most saying (and now you) to get a prime. I have 3 ...
  • Thanks to all for commenting, I think! To those who said turn off IS yes I did I  wondethink andred soon after I posted whether this was an issue. I forget it's on often. I don't see too many ...
  • Created discussion thread 18-55 bokeh woes
    Ok so my first lens for my x-pro 2 was the 18-55 and I thought I'd got a bum one. I didn;t replace it until the other day as I wanted a standard zoom to take on holiday with my newish X-h1. I have ...
  • Thanks for your suggestions all. I will  have a look. J
  • Created discussion thread Backpack/ daybag
    I'm looking for a medium size backpack in UK for holidays. Primarily I want good space for carrying for carrying stuff for everyday such as food, water bottles and lightweight raincoats. secondary ...
  • Thanks for this, I hadn;t seen that. A bit basic but I guess it gives an overview. Hasn't been updated for a while though.... J
  • Created question thread Cost per print in UK
    Still trying to figure out what to do re buying a p800. Has anyone worked out a rough cost of printing onto Hahnemule or premium lustre surfaces. What do you reckon a 10x8" costs you for ink and ...
  • Replied in P800 questions
    Thanks for the suggestions. Like I say I've not yet sprung for the p800 so any comments on how the papers work on this printer with PK inks? UK based so Red river not available asaik J
  • Created question thread P800 questions
    I’m almost about to buy a p800  it before I do I’d like to know some things.. I love printing occasionally onto board. I’ve owned the 4800 and it worked very well. Has anyone got any experience on ...
  • Created discussion thread X-h1 tethering
    Has anyone got any tips with tethering to PC. I have tried x-aquire and plug-in pro for lightroom on my HP spectre but it's not reliable at all. Really I could quite easily make do with just auto ...
  • I've just noticed the latest app doesn't have geotagging. Am I missing something? Can anyone guide me through setting up X-H1 with geotagging? Cheers
  • Follow up... I did spring for the xh-1 and I can say it's a huge improvement for me. I don't get eye strain using the viewfinder. The ergonomics are mostly great. I guess it's more what I'm used ...
  • Created discussion thread Giving up printing at home
    I have owned 4800, 7880 in the recent past, both of which I have have huge problems with clogging, errors etc. I now do not have a usable printer. I have found however that my photography for a ...
  • Replied in 10-24 noise.?
    Oh, thanks. Weird though. Not heard that on any of my Nikon lenses.
  • Interested to know what makes you feel so unhappy with the H1 viewfinder on occasion.
  • Thanks I think I have current firmware but will check out and the link too.
  • I never liked EVFs prior to the x-pro 2 and figured I'd like using the OVF more than I do. I find the OVF better in daylight but of little use since my preferred lens is the 10-24 and image display ...
  • Thanks for the info. However I rarely use the "box" preferring single point AF and weirdly found it's focussed past this point sometimes. Maybe as you say that even if the point has notified as in ...
  • Thank you. This is making me think hard on the change, though the biggest improvements for me are much better EVF and ergonomics so still might pull for it. J
  • Created question thread XH-1 vs X-pro 2 focus.
    I have asked this in another thread but wanted to get a wider perspective. I have had occasional missed focus when the camera has preferred a point behind my chosen point of focus on my X-pro2. ...
