  • I get the feeling that lots of 'serious' photographers (otherwise known as ones who have spent a lot of money on camera gear) want to have 'pro' gear to make themselves feel a more competent ...
  • When did DPR get in the market of knocking individual camera companies in favour of others? Seems like a strange article to me? Yes, I do have Fuji gear but I have no interest in the GFX, far too...

  • The 10-24 is an amazingly fun lens to own and great for lanscapes and architecture shots. I don't yet have the 56 f1.2 but am toying with the idea, I tend to use my 35 f1.4 for portraits. Just ...
  • Commented on article Fujifilm X-T20 sample gallery

    I was inferring about these galleries in general and not this one specifically. I think we have hit a point where no DSLR is a useless photographic tool and it is more and more about personal...

  • Commented on article Fujifilm X-T20 sample gallery

    I'm a Fuji XT-1 user and love the camera but I never see any use in these galleries. They normally use a variety of lenses that I might never affort to own and take pictures of dogs/cats/kids that...

  • Errrr, not all enthusiasts can afford to run two (or three) systems! For me it's one system at a time and if a lens hasn't been used in 6 months it's sold! I have just sold my X100S as it simply ...
  • A beautiful camera that was just too slllooooowww for my needs. I bought the X100S and even that was slooow. I hope the new X100F is useable. I had young kids when the X100 came out and it just...

  • That's the way Fujifilm like to roll! It does have WR which cheapo plastic 50mm's don't.

  • That's a tough one! I have the 18-135 and although it isn't the best Fuji lens it is very convenient and importantly for me water resistant. It has been out in pouring rain, snow, sleet, hail and ...
  • I have had a lot of m4/3 cameras and a few Fuji X and even though I am a happy X-T1 owner I don't think you will see a huge leap in quality. You seem to have a lot of gear, are you just having a ...
  • I had the original EM-1 and have had pretty much every Olympus 4/3 and m4/3 camera there has been made but I switched to Fuji not because of the quality because the EM-1 got me more 'keepers' due...

  • Mmmm, another 'new' Leica product that screams "Mug me, I'm rich".

  • Kodak Instamatic with 126 film in the mid '70's. My first 'proper' camera was my dads hand me down Zenith E, built like a tank and always had problems with the shutter curtain. I can smell it now!

  • It did warn me but only on the rear screen and I stupidly just raised my camera switched it on and carried on shooting away merrily! I had the rear screen switched off to conserve battery power ...
  • Created discussion thread X-T1 fatal flaw! But I am an idiot....
    I have just taken several hundred shots of my son's cross country event. My son even came first in his year group and I managed to capture his win.... Until I went to review the shots and of ...
  • I love their quick release system and have the sling and the hand strap so can alternate between them. I also have a DSLR and Fuji X100 so can use the straps on it as well. The sling strap is a...

  • Can I have all your Fuji gear... We all know there are faster focussing systems out there but I don't think the current cameras are slow or inaccurate to focus. There are loads of tutorials that ...
  • Why not get a X100T? Great fun camera with the OVF/EVF combo of the X-Pro and a bit cheaper than a used X-Pro1 + 23mm f1.4. It's almost pocketable as well which cannot be said of the X-Pro combo.
  • I've just moved back to Fuji from m4/3 so know both systems pretty well. I have the X-T1 at the moment but the X-E2 is pretty much the same output wise. The high ISO will be a bit better but most ...
