  • Thanks, Maltmoose! This is really helpful. It sounds a lot like the ETTR approach I used to use with my old Nikon D80. With the GR IIIx, I've been focusing on preserving highlights and lifting the ...
  • Thanks for the bump! I do regularly see people posting GR III night and lowlight images with little or no noise in the shadows and blacks, so I'm curious to know how they're achieving that - ...
  • Created discussion thread Lightroom Settings for GRIIIx?
    Hi there! I'm new to the GRIIIx and the GR ecosystem. I've been a Fuji shooter for years, and my Lightroom settings are geared to get the most out of my XTrans files. Was wondering if there are any ...
  • Great set! I’m new to the GRIIIx and still getting a feel for the camera. I’m already impressed with what I’m seeing, even with my fumbling, and your set shows me that the camera is capable of ...
  • Yes - I hesitate to use the word micro-contrast because people have such a strong reaction to it. It’s the same with “3D-pop” - suddenly we’re talking about subject/background isolation and good ...
  • I love that "adorable" is part of your image criteria!. It's very true that how an image moves us is often more important than its technical aspects. And your images do showcase something I've ...
  • Fingers crossed for you!
  • Well, that helps me decide between repairing my mkI and replacing with an mkll.
  • Good to know! I suspect repairs are pricier here in Canada, but I’m definitely going to call for an estimate. It’s funny because I bought the lens back when Fuji had regular lens sales, and it was ...
  • Thanks! That’s great know!
  • Joshua, if I could bother you with one more question: how do you find the X100V in terms of grip? The XT-2 has a notable grip and is very comfortable in hand. I think the XPro also has a molded grip? ...
  • Replied in X100v vs X-T4
    I was reading this thread for enjoyment, and I DID NOT see this twist coming. 🤣
  • These are stunning. I love how the subtle colour palette draws my attention to the contrasting textures.
  • Thanks, Andrew! Would you pay for the repair over getting the newer 27mm ver 2? This is the first lens I’ve had malfunction, so I am a bit worried about how long it will last after repair.
  • Thank you so much for this detailed response, Joshua. This really helps me think things through. You hit some benefits of the X100V I hadn't considered - the extra stop of light, wider for tight ...
  • Replied in LCD Screen
    Yes, I freely admit my demonstration it not scientifically rigorous. It is "correct" in as far as it illustrates what I see with my eyes. (To be clear: I noticed the issue, then shot the video, ...
  • Created question thread X100V vs X-T2 & 27mm
    So, my 27mm (ver 1) is in need of repair. It's really my go-to lens on the XT-2, and I'm getting to the point where I don't bring other lenses with me unless I'm specifically shooting portraits or ...
  • Replied in LCD Screen
    Thanks for your reassuring replies, everyone! Yes, my Fuji XT-2 LCD appears to be very clear, even in extremely low light. The display quality doesn't seem impacted by the shooting conditions. With ...
  • New development today: now when the lens freezes the camera (XT-2) won’t turn off, and I have to pop the battery to do so. I’ll add that these problems started right after I did a firmware update ...
