Yesterday I went to do some video test in harsh Australian sun testing Eterna and LOG. I had the battery grip on and started with 3 full S batteries. I had Boost mode on.
Interestingly depletion was with battery grip LEFT battery and the in body battery, while the right grip battery stayed full. Not a problem, however when I came home, I plugged in the grip's mains charger, however I didn't have a USB-C cable to plug in to the body - like I had to with the X-H1.
I went out to buy a USB-C cable leaving the camera charging. When I got back, all three batteries were full!!! Yippee!
So it would seem that the camera body can now charge the internal battery from the grips's charger.
Can anyone else confirm this?…

I have gone mercifully quiet concerning my acquisition of an X-Pro1 / X-M1 and more controversially the unneeded x-T1 .
Even worse , I have taken a couple of trips to the Waterloo area in London , to find that ONLY London seems to stimulate a craving to take out a camera , other than that , the daily grind of retirement stuck around home makes me lethargic .
So , the excited acquisition of cameras which seem to show echoes of my Minolta SRT days may , other than the X-Pro1 on a rare Malaysia holiday , be an expensive waste .
Don't get me wrong - the X-T1 with it's SLR style leaps into my hands as soon as the train slips into Waterloo for a hospital appointment [ Cochlear implant assessment ]
The modest X-M1 slips into my shoulder bag ready for any possibility .
The final admission is that I have reduced these excellent photographic tools to point and shoots , with the recognition that at 70 , I seem to have lost the ability to check out the means of activating Aperture / Shutter / Manual etc ... even worse , I am using that rear screen quite shamelessly at times !
I keep them on auto making full use of the exposure compensation DIALS which are so easy to access .
I may venture into other areas when circumstances absolutely demand it , but as a rule , I just worry about composition . This is aided enormously by the fact that the menus are shared by all three .
There you have it - a Fuji owner who Fudges it !

Fort Amherst is a neighbourhood in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. It is on the southern side of the entrance to St. John's harbour. Fort Amherst has the remains of gun emplacements and pillboxes built during World War II to defend against German U-boats.
Photos were taken with the 16-55 lens on an X-T2.

Well chaps I finally made a decision and the first tranche of Fuji gear is waiting for a trade in offer from WEX, an X-H1+battery grip combo, Fujinon 10-24mm, 50-200mm, EF 20 flash and two rectangular Fuji metal lens hoods! They will finance the Panasonic Leica 12mm f1.4 lens!
The next lot of stuff to go will be Fujinon 16mm, 23mm and 56mm lenses.
Finally making the decision is kind of liberating.
I’ve been watching the YouTube videos by a British chap called David Thorpe, his non histrionic reviews are easy to watch as he covers most M4/3 equipment that I ever heard of! really quite good I find!
So I’m thinking that the itch has been scratched!
Does that mean that I get drummed out of the Fujix-Forum Brownies?…
This is surely a (very anal) fixation, but along the way I've misplaced the protective rubber cover for the VG-XT1 battery grip connector pins. Not the one from the camera body, but rather the one from the grip itself.
Not too much an issue as the grip is usually connected to one of my X-T1 bodies for everyday shooting, but I'd still like to find another copy (did I mention "anal" above?). I've had no luck locating a genuine replacement online. Any suggestions?…

Hi folks,
Does anyone have comparative experience with these lenses? I am thinking about a good choice for a very wide angle (but not fish-eye) lens, and these seem like the favourites at the moment. For a variety of reasons, the 14mm, 16mm, 16-55 and the various Rokinon manual lenses are not options. I have the excellent 18-55 but it's not quite wide enough for my taste. General speaking I prefer primes to zooms, but on the other hand I like the style of Fuji lenses.
Any thoughts to help me through the fog of indecision?
Ian.

Starting in Chama, New Mexico with an elevation of 7,871 feet, New Mexico/Colorado Route 17 climbs to an elevation of 10,022 feet at Cumbres Pass on it’s way to Antonito, Colorado elevation 7,890 feet where it ends after a total distance of about 48 miles. Along the way this route winds through several pine and Aspen tree covered mountains, crosses or runs parallel to several rivers, and for about 20 miles provides vantage points from which to observe and photograph the Cumbres and Toltec scenic steam powered railroad as it plies it’s way through the scenery on it’s way from Chama to Antonito. We recently had a one day adventure aboard our motorcycle on this scenic route.

Yet another due oil change, that I decided to try the top of the top oil for (and boooooy can you feel a real difference in response with this stuff!), rotated the wheels, and lastly put in better and new brake pads so I'll know their life from day one vs whatever previous owner had never changed (and those were halfway down).

I found what seems to be different versions of this lens, at least in size (both X-mount, but that's not the point). I´m confused
One picture (vertical) is from an used item and the other form the B&H site. The used one seems to be larger.
Am I wrong?

I want to shoot Raw & Jpeg+ACROS. When I setup like this my viewfinder is in B&W. Is there any way to have the viewfinder in color when shooting with this combo?
Many thanks!…

She was just curled up on a grass patch. I sat the camera on a low wall barely 2 metres away. Got 3 shots, this plus two others as she buried her nose back under her tail and went back to sleep.
X-T1 with XF 18 - 55 and Nissin flash. To say it was a snatched shot, it came out well.

Hi
I'm loving my new X-Pro2, but am left-eyed. This makes the finder kind of dim in bright sunlight.
There's a perfect (maybe) solution here:

BUT
It's for the XT series.
Can anyone tell me if the eyecups are interchangeable between the X-Pro and XT cameras?
Thanks!…

I took a chance on a brand new Rokinon 16mm f2 in Fuji X mount from Amazon. Price was $201.21. Thought why not. I have tried other Rokinons: the 135mm which is exquisite and the 12mm that just didn't work for me. I am aware of a lot of lens options for Fuji X, but had never seen anyone reference the Rokinon/Samyang 16mm.
Best value I ever spent on any lens of any cost. The results are very like the Fuji 16mm, without auto focus. Image below only to show wide open sharpness and bokeh possibilities in a very not well lit indoor room. Very close focus, maybe around 6", like the Fuji. I am so thoroughly happy with this lens. It is a fairly large. A bit larger than the Fuji. The price was crazy for new from Amazon. Worth a look if you enjoy manual focus and want what the Fuji 16mm offers.

I am considering subscribing to the Adobe CC with lightroom and photoshop, but I have a question.
I spend a lot of time traveling for work, and most of my family live out in the boonies, both situations where wifi might not be available.
Is it possible to use the adobe programs when one does not have wifi? I understand i may not have access to photos I've saved to the cloud, but for instance, if I import photos from my camera to my iPad, will lightroom's editing functions be usable?
Thanks for any advice,

Just a simple snap taken at Folkestone Kent UK of some small boats moored in the outer harbour in the evening light. In the distance you can see the French coastline. The model house you can see in the snap is all to do with the Folkestone Triennial.

I have a MOBI card that works great to wireless transfer images from my XT-20 to my Mac. I use the Keenai software to make the connection. Changes are coming to Keenai, and I don't know how much longer it will work. My studio and office are next to each other. I set up and shoot in the studio, then I head to my Mac in my office to review the images. The transfer is automatic. Nice!
I wish that Fuji had a way to do this. My camera has WiFi, but it is so poorly implemented. I do use the Fujifilm Cam Remote app on my iPad to remotely control the camera. It works, but if you've used it you know there are a lot of steps required to get it connected. Worse is if I want to review the camera images on the iPad after I have used the camera remote control I have to disconnect from the WiFi, reconnect to the WiFi, review the images, disconnect from the WiFi, reconnect to the WiFi, use the camera remote again. Yikes, it can't be made any harder!
I did try a Toshiba WiFi SD card, and it does work, but it too is difficult to connect. The MOBI card with the Keenai software is the best. I do nothing more than shoot the images and they just transfer. That's what I want. Has anyone else found a decent solution to this assuming the Keenai software does go away?…
Hi All,
Does anyone have a recommendation for an underwater housing for the XT2? I’ve been looking around and most of the options are expensive, so I wanted to get some opinions before I pulled the trigger.
Thanks!…
