  • Replied in Ditch the bag
    I don't have the V but I have the F series, your camera's predecessor. Basically the same size. I haven't read any of the posts here so I will give you how I think about this series of camera. This ...
  • Created discussion thread X T1 & 50-250 XC & image stabilization
    I am just checking to ensure I am using the camera correctly. When I want to use image stabilization with an XC lens, I go into the fist option of menu 5, select IS, then turn IS off.  I'm pretty ...
  • Replied in Firmware update
    With Fuji cameras and lenses, make sure you keep the firmware up to date. Fuji will add options not available originally and fix bugs that irritated folks. The latest is X-Pro1 Firmware Update Ver.3.70
  • The OP was quite clear a number of times he was discussing a Canon L lens. I've been guilty of resurrecting an old thread, quite innocently. You knows those folks who say search first then ask on ...
  • This discussion is almost not worth responding to, its an old debate that was resolved in the 50's and 60's. Photoshop has been around for a long time, by photoshop I mean the manipulation of an ...
  • The title "Take the photos others aren't taking" really is a rehash of the OP's observation of lenses to get that were specialized and phone cameras couldn't take them. So shot ultra wide, really ...
  • Not much to say, the title says it all.
  • I purchase a lot used, but only from amateurs.  Amateurs really don't use their gear that much and I have to examine a piece of photographic equipment and reject it because of its condition. I ...
  • I'm not familiar with your camera model so I can't comment about its strengths and short comings but the title of your thread is Fuji in general. First I am an old fart, first into SLR's (film) - ...
  • I owned this camera - original digital Rebel, to be lazy I'll be doing a copy and paste. But this camera was the first out of the gate with the 1.6 crop factor, also called the 300D. The 350 was ...
  • First there are folks who are pro filters on the lens for protection and others who say why put another piece of glass which often isn't to the caliber of the glass on the camera. I don't use ...
  • Replied in Noise
    I had a Tamron 200 - 400 f5.6 which was reasonable at f5.6 but quite good at f8.  Very few know about this lens and for starving photographers you can probably pick this lens up for between $100 - ...
  • I have the original 35mm f2 and it is quite good, not excellent but for me good enough. It would be nice to have IS but really a 35mm with today's high ISO use will produce great photos as you ...
  • Why don't you separate out your vacation camera from the rest of your stuff. Purchase something used, I would suggest something in the Fuji line purchased used. Look for a Fuji camera that is one ...
  • Replied in Box of nuts :)
    Just tested mine out, yup on the noisy side.
  • It may be a good night time street lens when there's bright lights but it hunts harder than a starving peasant when it hasn't got enough light.its just not my copy because I own 3 and all are ...
  • First I have a full frame Canon with 4 "L" lenses, keeps the snobs happy, also some non L lens and some quite good Sigma lenses. This is my way to say I know what good images coming out of an ...
  • 1:.7 is actually better than 1:1.  I am assuming a type o and it really is 1:2.  You can try some extension tubes and you will end up with some decent results.
  • As an experiment, try shooting from your car.  Birds are hardwired to not trust humans - smart birds.  But they don't fear cars. If you can do this and are happy with the results, you can try ...
  • My evolution of 50 years of photography in one sentence. Started out film with an SLR, then into DSLR both crop and full frame, then into the wonderful Fuji world, and then more of a believer with ...
