  • Replied in X 30 Storage ?
    Dan, The NP95 battery was a very popular model and is still used in the X100 series I believe.  They should be available for a goodly long time.  They lose charge in storage (but slowly), but it ...
  • Also if you have the camera in SR auto mode it will switch to continuous autofocus regardless of where the main focus switch is set.  You will hear the lens focusing in this mode as you move the ...
  • Timo, Original list price was higher than that, but even if it is truly new (no shutter activations), I would probably not offer more than $450.  I got mine as a demo unit with the leather case for ...
  • You are thinking of the X10. It had an optical viewfinder. The X30 was bigger, EVF so no parallax problems, bigger battery (450 shots), and standard X-trans sensor. Tack sharp F2.0 lens. It was...

  • SactoJim, Agree,  my X-S1 is a 33A and does have a "loose" lens with some creep and a little droop.  I did shim it, but only for better holding.  However, I have no complaints on optical quality ...
  • It is sad, but Fuji never made any money on the X-S1.  Initial retail was $799, unheard of for a superzoom at that time.  I got mine on closeout for $349.  Maybe in today's world of $1500 Sony ...
  • Replied in X-T100 Anyone?
    Labe, It has a Bayer sensor (same as X-A5, but with the X30's EVF attached.  Should be very interesting depending on the price point Fuji goes with.  Will need to be cheap to compete against M43  ...
  • Replied in more info here
    Labes suggestions are spot on as usual.  A couple of other things to try are the X30 does exposure bracketing and this appears to be a static (sculpture?) subject.  HDR is one way to extend the ...
  • CMCM, Macro capability is often overlooked.  Both the X30 and XS1 have great macro capability.  Check out Electric Bill's latest posts for some examples.  As for the 24 mm, my X-S1 has it, but like ...
  • I have to agree about the marketing.  A 1 inch sensor is only 2x the area of a 2/3rds inch sensor.  Maybe 1 stop difference.   With less zoom range.   Last time I checked the price of these new ...
  • I use ACDsee standard for DAM management and keywording.  From the use external editor menu,  I can launch various editing programs including Perfectly Clear 3.5 and Affinity.  Works well for me.  ...
  • The optical stabilization on my X-S1 seems to work quite well.  I can hand hold at 624 equivalent length at 1/250  speeds.  Considering the normal standard of 1/focal length would be 1/600 or ...
  • The OP is not unhappy with his computer performance.  He does minimal post processing and does not use Lightroom or other memory hog programs.  I don't understand why so many have recommended he ...
  • Sheldon, If your computer is set up with Windows 10 as C:  and data as D:, then you just have to replace D with a bigger drive.  I have my computer set up this way.   All data on D and the OS on ...
  • Sheldon, Since you don't "work" with your photos, all you really need is to increase your storage.  It is easy to replace internal drives and even easier to change your external to a higher ...
  • Ditto, I highly recommend this program.  Multiple versions depending on your needs and very generous license terms.  But the free version does do a lot.  I abandoned SyncToy after getting errors ...
  • Replied in X-10 and X-30
    Dan, There was a thread on here when the X-20 first came out in which a poster summarized the changes from the X-10.  One of the changes mentioned was better sealing around the lens.  One of the ...
  • Replied in X-10 and X-30
    Just to be fair XTRANS enthusiasts would say that you get more details with the X30 as it is always in L mode (12 megapixels) as there are no split sensor M modes (6 MP) as on the X10.  Having ...
  • Stefaan, Agree, the price is excellent, but I got better results with Pefectly Clear SE which is less than $20 more and has multiple sliders and presets for fine tuning.  Both are intriguing products.
  • Welcome to reality folks. Serious photography is a niche market like it or not. Serious photographers are not where the market (money) is. Adobe does not "care" about us. They have no "desire to...
