  • The XC lenses must be popular as the XC 35 F2 appears to be sold out everywhere and is going for $100 over list price on that auction site.  Why Fuji has not made more of these while at the same ...
  • Jason, Nice to see some photos from the X-T100 posted.   This camera is better than you would suppose from all the negative comments made about it at launch and is seldom discussed here. The X-T200 ...
  • I posted in another thread about the skin on my X-T100.  I am using it not so much for protection as to enhance grip.  The X-T100 is finished in a somewhat slippery plastic and the silicon ...
  • My work uses Duo for its two factor authentication for VPN and it allows the option of using the app or accepting an SMS text or the third option is a non-text phone call with the code supplied by ...
  • The 15-45 can be set up to use the zoom and focus rings as a two speed setup, with the zoom ring for coarse but fast adjustments and the focus ring for fine but slow  zoom adjustments instead of ...
  • Does it take multiple images or just multiple noises?  Make sure you don't have bracketing or burst mode set to on. There are even some modes that take multiple images and then combine them into ...
  • Ben, The link is just above the picture.  Should have made it a darker color I guess.  Links to Amazon listing. Bill
  • I had a nice L-bracket grip for my X-T100, but was looking for something less bulky when I came across this silicon slip on case similar to the ones used on phones.  I was surprised how much I ...
  • OzShutterBug, Not ignoring you, but had to snap a quick shot for you as I had deleted my old ones.  Image taken hand-held, with Meike 16mm tube and 15-45 set to max telephoto end.  Working distance ...

  • This thread is so confusing to read because people are continuously confusing wifi which comes in 2G (2 GHz frequency band) and 5G (5 GHz frequency band) with cell service 4G and 5G which are data ...
  • The cheapest true macro lens that gets decent reviews is the 7-Artisans 60mm, but it is a manual focus lens.  Otherwise I would look at a used Fuji 60mm macro which are often available although ...
  • Replied in Second on a NAS
    A NAS (network attached storage) allows you to access your images from any computer on your network and some even allow external access (although many are very slow).  Don't confuse backup with ...
  • In addition to what skyglider mentioned, many external drives now use built in drive encryption.  The key is in a chip on the interface board in the enclosure.  Take the drive out and you may find ...
  • Did you read my post in your other thread?  I have an MSI B450 board.  They support the 3000 series CPU's if they have the latest BIOS.  You need to check the CPU support guide on the MSI site and ...
  • TooManyCanyons, Did you check your motherboard before starting to see if it needed a bios update to support the 3700X.     The x470 boards can run  that series, but many required a bios upgrade before
  • Is a 2X zoom worth the compromises that come with zoom lenses? Used to be that 3X was the minimum to justify the lower optical quality over primes. For me I would like a longer zoom range or just...

  • Same here.  Two machines down and two to go.  Installed on Ryzen 2600 desktop and intel atom netbook both with no problems.  Both through windows update. Seems to have been sorted out.  Although ...
  • Replied in Word of advice
    Just a word of advice from someone who works on their machine all the time.  Take a photo of the cables attached to the back of the machine.  There is no way you can replace a fan without ...
  • Unfortunately my X10 did die.  Got a hair in the lens barrel which migrated down to the sensor.  So we can't always keep these cameras as long as we would like.  Lucky for me my X-S1 and X30 are ...
