  • This covers the 110mm lens with the 18mm tube, 45mm tube and both of them together.  Images are taken at minimum and maximum distance https://storyinpictures.com/Blog/1
  • Fotodiox tubes are available on Amazon, at least in the US.
  • Probably not the same (20mm and 48mm), but another 3rd party option: https://fotodioxpro.com/collections/macro-devices-accessories/gfx I have only used the Fuji ones.
  • I think it is simply what Fuji stated: they got far more orders than they expected. Camera stores are, presumably, fulfilling preorders as cameras come in.  So B&H will show stock when they have ...
  • I played with it when Fuji brought it around. AF is astonishingly better. Quite fast compared to the 50. IBIS worked well. I was surprised and impressed by how well the balance and ergonomics ...
  • It seems that some have strong ideas about how this should be done better. I hope those who have it will demonstrate their knowledge with images. I downloaded the images and on my computer screen ...
  • No test will be perfect and there will always be critiques. This strikes me as a pretty good test. I'm looking on the phone. I expected the Q and Q2 would have been about the same on the forum, but ...
  • I can only speak from my own experience with GFX 50 files compared to latest generation Canon, Nikon and Fuji X files. I have worked with a few Sony files, but not enough to talk about. The first ...
  • Replied in From Instagram
    How about a MF X100/Leica Q?   Small, sleek, leaf shutter. Or a camera with moon dust.
  • How much experience do you have with cameras? Seeing or manipulating light? Post processing? People skills if your subjects include people? MF cameras offer significant advantages, but the ...
  • I've seen several people drop cameras due to Manfrotto QR issues. Not once have I seen such a failure from someone using Arca-Swiss. Obviously this is just one person's observation :).
  • I like the Sirui monopod which have removable feet The feet are much stronger than most others  you can put a foot on them for added stability. They can be used by themselves as a tabletop/floor tripod
  • I have used it on the Fuji X system and on Nikon. I have tried it on the GFX and it works, but I haven't done anything with it on GFX. I recommend getting the Nikon mount and using an adapter ...
  • Replied in What MF?
    The top Phase is higher resolution, has a more recent sensor with more up to date technology and has a physically larger sensor. There are a number of other less important  technical differences. A ...
  • I'm surprised at these posts about cropping. I fear I may have misunderstood your intent. The first reason is that I remember you (JimKasson) posting elsewhere about using the 35mm crop and ...
  • Replied in Digital XPan
    You can have a digital XPan today!  Buy a GFX, put it in 24:65 crop ratio and put on an appropriate lens.  Done!
  • As it turns out, I know a lot of people who are very interested in good pictures of paintings because they use them to research clothing from the past Are your images of paintings mixed in with ...
  • I use a strap which looks like a rope (Lance Strap, Sailor Strap, etc).  It is comfortable to use as a neck or shoulder strap and slides across my body as I lift the camera (effectively like a ...
  • I agree that the surroundings and drink provide a sense of place. The light is good The leg in front does not add a benefit and is a distraction.  It being so light in color and out of focus in the ...
  • Hasselblad, Nikon, Canon...I would certainly hesitate. Fuji has a solid track record for solving real problems efficiently with firmware and, in a couple cases, with physical repairs.  So it is ...
