  • Low light—how low? If everything is pretty much in shadow, I'd like to see samples from any camera at 2000 ISO that don't have noise. We're becoming very lazy as photographers. Getting decent ...
  • My sense has been that when you initially open an image, it's at a reduced "fit to screen" size, and the Bridge is doing this at a low resolution. When you c,ick to go to 100%, the im age is ...
  • I stopped doing this after my 60 had the front pulled slightly loose due to angular pressure from the hood. The day this happened, the lens was never subjected to any rough handling, it sat in the ...
  • Created discussion thread Luminar (OSX) crop tool problem
    i have luminar installed on two macs, and like it quite a bit. On my work mac, luminar works without a hitch. At home, I have had a problem with the crop tool. I can't get it to stop resizing the ...
  • I find they make a big difference, but require a change in technique. Rather that using your fingertip to arch above the button, and poke down into it, rest your fingertip on something to the ...
  • How far / long will you be carrying your gear? I liked everything about the peak bags when I was looking except the suspension—the straps weren't well padded, and the waist strap is pretty much ...
  • Long exposures need complete stability. Since weight isn't an issue for you, I would look for a good used aluminum tripod and head. You can probabaly find something stabile enough for $100 or so, ...
  • And, well known secret, the hood from the 35/1.4 works really well on it. I don't carry the 60 hood anymore. This and the 90 are probably my 2 sharpest Fuji lenses; maybe my 2 sharpest lenses ever. ...
  • If the Sony is FF, then you'd want the 16 /1.4, which will give you at least the same field of view, and close bokeh. I don't have direct experience with either lens, but I do still use a number ...
  • The 26 will hold what you have, easily. It just barely fits under airplane seats—if this is a concern, I'm not sure if any of the larger bags you're considering will. The laptop and tablet ...
  • The specific model flash is just available, so very few Fuji users will have experience with it. The smaller godox came out a few weeks ago, and I've really been impressed with it; I'll be getting ...
  • CF ends up being more than just lighter than aluminum. It's stiffer, and also damps vibrations better. I haven't looked that specific tripod up to see tube sizes, etc., but when I've looked at ...
  • TT685, available now. Just got the 350f last week, and couldn't be more pleased with it. Selling off my Metz flashes soon (none were Fuji ttl). Sorry for off topic—but lack of flash system is not ...
  • May depend on the three primes.  I do recommend Think Tank. I can squeeze my xp2 with three original primes into a hubba hubba hiney, but the t2 with grip wouldn't fit in that. I'd look at the ...
