Hello to everyone! My name is Billy, I'm new here. I badly need some help with my camera and have no idea in which thread to ask, so I ask here. My SZ-31MR (not iHS) started to have problems retracting the lens some time ago. It got worse, and I decided to take it apart and clean the guide paths. As I'm an electronics engineer with considerable experience, this was no big deal. I did clean it, used dry nitrogen to try to chase away any grains of dirt. All went well, until I found the real...

Hi everybody, hopefully i will be buying a 7 year old X1 tomorrow, a bit cheaper because the flash does not pop up. I does not worry me, because i normally do not use flash, and i have an external flash, that has been compatible with several cameras, Leicas included. But I searched the net anyway, and also these here forum,  but did not find anything related to this issue, or its cause. Only after reading https://blog.mingthein.com/2012/03/30/review-the-leica-x1/, i saw a reference to "There...

"What lens is that?" he asks. "It's a 14-42mm", say I. "Wow, 14mm that's REALLy wide, hey," he responds. "Well, actually, in 35mm terms, because the sensor on my camera is half the size of a full frame, it's the equivalent field of view of 28mm; so it's not all that wide." "Oh." I've stopped going into long and involved explanations. To short-circuit it all I tell 'em it's 28-84mm lens and they're happy. Most of my friends have either Canon or Nikon with the x1.6 or x1.5 conversion, and there...

I can't find a way to make this combination work together. I'm a bit old-school, I like the Phottix sender and receiver, but my Canon version of those doesn't work with the Sony at all. I don't really need TTL, though it'd be nice, and remote control might be nice too, but not necessary. I just got the X1, might end up sending it back. Might be me - I find it and the Sony 45m flash too confusing.

I have bought Ricoh GR a few years ago. Now I have seen a New RICOH Teleconversion Lens TC-1 x1.88 for RICOH GR. Is there anybody with experience? Is there any review or test of this TC-1?

I have updated both my X1T-N and X1T-S with the G1 app using a nebulous sequence of button press and connection. I thought I had to press the test button while turning on the X1T to make it recognizable by the G1 app but not this time.  No joy. I did not have to turn off antivirus previously but did this time.  Still no joy. Would someone have a trick for this (very) frustrating process?  :-x

Does anyone know if the Godox X1 will control other brands in i-TTL?  I have 2 Neewer flashes that work well for me, and a set of transmitter/recievers, but they only work in manual when mounted on those.  The Godox are very attractive at $85, but if they won't work in TTL it's not worth going that direction. Since the signal output from the recievers has to match the output from the hot shoe, it seems like they should work with any brand that works on the camera, but I have been wrong...

I intend to use this flash on a flash bracket. does anyone know if i can just use a flash sync cord or would I need to get the x1 transmitter. Of course I don't want to lose the ttl and HSS capabilities.  Thanks Joe --the most beautiful thing on the earth is the earth

I'm in a position that I can treat myself.  At the moment I have the two kit lenses as per profile but I like shooting birds, occasional critters such as butterflies and general scenes and people.  The 100-400 MkII is just within budget but seems too much lens for a modest camera so a lot of money, and a bit more reach but a lot more weight than the very respectable 55-250 IS.  Additionally if I am in the process of upgrading then it seems that the 18-135 USM nano would give me the nice...
