  • Rick, thanks and this confirms my own tests with the GF 23mm f/4 that this is one incredible WA lens which is super sharp from the center to the extreme edges.  At 1:1 magnification of the raw ...
  • wuzup, I have the Fuji GFX 63 f/2.8 zoom and 32-64 f/4 and have used both almost exclusively for landscapes and on a sturdy tripod. From f4 - f22 they are nearly identical with respect to center ...
  • Mujana, I have the Gitzo Traveler with the FLM CB-32F ball head and FLM SRB-40 40mm Clamp Style Arca Swiss type Quick Release Base. I also have bigger and heavier tripods with big RRS or Arca ...
  • This is the P0 I also got and agree its excellent. However be advised you are getting Arca's proprietary and smaller release system and I have found no easy way to convert to a standard Arca ...
  • Dale, I love the built in CPL and controllers to rotate the polarizer on the Nisi V5Pro square filter holder. One consideration is now you have a Nisi holder is how well a 10 or whatever stop ND ...
  • I don't buy it either but have no idea why "Jerredz" needed such a lame excuse to ask such an idiotic question allegedly for something he and his "long-time professional" realized when they where ...
  • You might consider a MindScape Gear, which is part of Think Tank, 18L Trailscape bag. I have a similar kit with 3 lenses and a Fugi GFX body with room for a water bottle on one side any my travel ...
  • Tekel, the Gitzo 1545T while by no means cheap is the least expensive of three I tripods I own including a much larger Gitzo Traveler. However, the 1545T is what I use 90% of the time due to the ...
  • The main interest intended was the very vertical waterfall but is lost in part due to the horizontal format of the image. As pointed out it is also over processed resulting in halos and I don't ...
  • Sounds like you may be doing landscape photography and if so then definitely get a circular polarizer (CP) and highly recommend a neutral density (ND) filter and if just one then 5 stops and two ...
  • You might want to check on one of the many reviews including this one that compares 4 lightweight tripods and heads: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omOJ623M-w0A I have a Gitzo GT1545T 1 series ...
  • I agree there is considerable potential here and what draws your interest seems to be the barn. However, there are so many distracting elements the barn is lost and converting to B&W makes it even ...
  • As others have suggested there are too many elements in the image to form a good composition where your eye has some idea where to go. However, you captured some very nice elements; the clouds, ...
  • Nerb, you seem to be getting more or less the same advice with different approaches to make the skier more the focus of the image; in general keep it simple.  As for how to set a white and black ...
  • I agree this is a very good image as is. However, the skier is a somewhat lost in such a busy photo in part because the he/she is against the shadow instead of the bright sun and somewhat lost. ...
  • One of the myths in landscape photography is that it is all about super wide angle images, that is, less than 24mm full frame on like the Nikon D750 or Pentax K-1 or 16mm APS-C like the Fuji XT-2. ...
  • Thanks for confirming that everything is fine so I decided to keep and register my GF 120mm with Fuji. Having used the 120mm macro for over a week I have all but forgotten the noises and ...
  • I and I am sure others appreciate your initial impressions of the Fuji and Hasselblad mirrorless MF. I evaluated the HB X1D and Fuji GFX testing each for several days comparing both to my current ...
  • Ron, I had exactly the same concern when I got my GF 120mm and left messages on the Fuji Facebook form for owners.  Don't panic.  First after just a few hours use it is much quieter and one of the ...
  • I have been in touch with a number of leading suppliers of L-brackets including Kirk and Really Right Stuff. RRS rep said it would be another 6-8 weeks to develop an L-bracket for the GFX and ...
