  • I did study some German language at school and I'm surprised how my English is translated - quite well -  I can still read/understand the language . My school years were some 50+ years ago  ;-) My ...
  • ;-) My gear collection is really much smaller and I'm slowly trying to get rid of some gear that I almost never use. I have used Fujifilm X-E3 and a couple of lenses when I want to travel light... ...
  • It is an interesting APS-C sensor camera, fast AF and everything... It could be a perfect pair with some FF camera like R6 or R5. Different sensor size gives more flexibility with your lenses. ...
  • I did look at your images first and before reading i recognized the dome.  Anunusual feeling to see something like that on this forum… Atomic bomb dome and Hiroshima are in many ways serious ...
  • I think OP had young women in mind.... Bird  (real wild birds in real nature) photography is not that easy. Modern cameras are perfect for that , but long lenses are extremely  expensive and ...
  • I would never sell my RF 24-105L. 24-70 is perhaps a nice lens , but not so much better in anything. R6 has IBIS and that will help you in your local climate  and with all lenses - and indoors. I ...
  • I have used F-Stop with suitable insert - very nice to carry and durable.
  • IMO. so called fast lenses are made / built for shallow DOF and nice blurry background.  Not especially for low light. In real life it is quite difficult to see the benefits of f 1,2 or f 1,4 for ...
  • Size matters… I bought my first Fuji ILC because it was close to the original Leica dream. X-H2 line is very much something else and it will be a beast for heavyweight professionals - not a ...
  • My first Fujifilm ilc was X-E1 . It had something to do with my Leila-dreams. Much cheaper , but usable like Leica. T1 is also quite small like E3. Then came H1 that i bought because it was very ...
  • Nothing against a smaller sensors or R7 ! I  just checked some facts I just hope Canon makes cameras that are not too big and heavy. Smaller sensor size makes it possible ( in theory) and hopefully ...
  • No objection or disapproval....  just remembering some old meaningless memories. With feeling I have read some opinions and ads - some say R7 is somethings special. Nothing against enthusiasm.  And ...
  • Yes. There is only some marketing hype. Possible the camera is quite usable for those who have suitable lenses. I could use it with my 100-400LMkII, but i do not need new APS C gear Some ...
  • I'm sure many will be happy with the new R7 - but is it somehow exceptionally great new invention ? Some 11 years ago i enjoyed my 7D. Probably R7 is better. For birdphotographers  APS C sensor ...
  • There is no need ( or almost no) to use or carry cash in any kind of wallet in Europe . I just visited Switzerland and i did not  see much cash ... some locals used cash in a restaurant. Visa or ...
  • Really an unpleasant experience - and the place/ situation was perfect and typical or thieves/pickpockets. Sometimes it is cheaper to use a taxi... Anyways - i try to use a shoulder bag that looks ...
  • R6 has IBIS  - it makes the future lens meditations easier - and R6 will work really well with  a lens like RF24-105L  and especially with many primes without IS
  • I will not upgrade my H1 - 2990€  to get the  new version… and if i want to Enjoy the fast AF i must invest in new expensive lenses.
  • Photographers on this forum ? How many of us hobbyist seriously shoot videos? It is not mentioned very often on this forum and sending a link to some own video is very rare. Is it an important ...
  • If you buy X-H2.  you will also buy some  rather expensive lenses (longer?)   to shoot those animal eyes  - like eagles or wolves .  You are buying a system! If it is cat portraits at home you can ...
