On article FilmLab is a film negative scanning app for smartphones (105 comments in total)

I'm using my DSLR on an light table and blacking out any existing light between the film and camera. Imagine an iphone would have even more reflections and whatnot.

On article Fujifilm X-T20 Review (375 comments in total)

Wondering if you can now bracket when using the Remote app. I can't seem to do that with my X-T10

Also hope it's a bit more rugged. My faux thumb rubber grip fell off and so did the Exposure comp dial but that could be me just mishandling it.

Wish it did have a dual card slot and weatherproofing but not a huge deal I guess. I put a little bracket/hand grip thing on my X-T10 which allows for easy battery and card access when there's a tripod plate on it.

Also would be nice to shoot tethered!

I'd rock either one for sure. Is the T-2 still just as WR?

I've got a Fuji instax camera and just got the SP-2 printer which I love but would really like to try this out! Like the idea of zero ink technology and think it will still have the fun of old polaroid.

It'll be interesting to see what their next Wifi drives will look like. Hope they keep the SD card slot! For now I'm still rocking the Lacie Rugged Thunderbolt and a few other random Toshibas and Samsungs I always buy at BestBuy when in a jam- which all tend to work fine and are nice & slim.

Strange to not see it compared to the Fuji X-T2 or even X-T10. Maybe it's not supposed to be a prosumer or professional camera? The price is nice-ish!

Kinda want one just so I can put black tape over the logo. Ha. My Fuji 90 rocks in the meantime but it's not super sharp. This could be cool. Anyone try the Holga version?

so not compatible with the Mark III?

That is one thing about the X-T10 I do like- having the physical drive dial so I can set a shooting mode- although, like a lot of the other small buttons and dials on the T-10, they can easily get pressed by accident and whacked into different modes.

check FujiRumors.com plus I'm sure it'll show up here for the updated X-A2 which should be around the 25th of August. -that's if you like what you have now. If you like the ergonomics then go with that or an X-E2S. If you like a flip screen and dslr center type view finder then go with an X-T10.

Depends what other cameras you have. If you're using something like a 5D or X-T2 for jobs or whatever then I'd go for the X-E2S. I was never much of a rangefinder type user which is why I got an X-T10, which I love, but the X-E1 is really nice and simple to use- then again the X-T10 has the tilting screen which can come in handy at times. They are both pretty close to the same size. The X-E2s is a little less clunky maybe.

At first I wasn't a fan of this line. Thought the design of the body was rather bland. On a recent trip my X-T10 broke so I found a cheap demo version of an X-E1 in Oslo and used it for a trip through the Fjords. Ended up loving how minimalistic this camera is.
I'd go for an X-E2s if it were 24MP and maybe had a slight redesign but still seems like it'd be a really solid camera. At this price I'd be more likely to try a Sony RX100III or something for now.

For now I'm rocking the X-E1 and liking it. We'll see what happens once my X-T10 comes back from repair. I've been migrating from Canon to Fuji over the last few months but still need my Canon for tethering- need to try the X-T2 for that next!

On article Rebel in your pocket: Canon EOS M3 Review (464 comments in total)

Yeah strange to compare to a discontinued Fuji but maybe that's the closest model. I've got a 5D III and it would be great to be able to use the same lenses on a smaller, lighter mirrorless Canon with some sort of EVF/HVF, Wifi and tethering option. Two SD card slots would be rad too.

For now it's the 5D and the Fuji X-T10. Waiting to see what comes up soon before fully switching to Fuji but leaning that way.

seems nice. is there a more rugged camera body in this price range? debating this, a Canon GX9 or is there a better Fuji for a little more?

On article VSCO Keys offers shortcut to Lightroom efficiencies (65 comments in total)

Anyone have experience with this vs using Exposure by Alien Skin?

The main criticism I hear is that Exposure has better grain effects and within each film preset one can still manipulate the effect before applying it where as Vsco is 'oneclickboom' but of course can be tweaked after.
I do like how one can work with raw files though in Vsco. Does it work with both LR and Camera Raw or does one have to purchase it for each?

I appreciate them coming out with shortcuts but most apps give them out for free.
