    Are you aware that you need to press and HOLD the Menu/OK button (for about 3 seconds) in order to lock the command dial? Hope this helps.

    Nice B&W shot BTW... straight OOC, or processed?

    Let my web page die a couple years ago, what are you guys using to host your images nowadays? Would love to have images post larger on the page.
    Great shots. I use Gallery3. It has never failed on me, only my debian linux gives me problem from time to time. You can have a choice of image size when viewing, unlike wordpress.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Jono, the 18-55mm is my main travel lens on the Fuji X-Pro 1, I love it. Hope you do too.

    Just took advantage of the £300 cash back for ordering 2 lenses, the 23mm which I have been wanting for a long time, and the 55-200mm as I need a longer zoom at times esp now the Panasonic 35-100mm is going.

    Hi David
    The Olympus 12-40 sets high standards, but my initial impression on the 18-55 is definitely positive.

    I've just got the one lens for now - but if I like the camera I'll probably get the macro and the 55-200 - primes are for the Leica!

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Hi Jono, I do have a few MF primes Leica and Zeiss but use them on my poor man's Leica the Ricoh GXR these days, however I do like the Fuji AF primes on the Fuji X, they are good value for money and the physically smaller ones like the 18 and the 27(which I don't have) go with the XP1 nicely, especially if the hoods are removed. I ditched the 18-55 hood, just put on a screw in RF style hood to give protection from knocks on the front element, and use the Fuji lens cap in the bag.

    Thoughts on the grip please? I confess to liking the OMD-EM5 better when I put on the battery grip, despite making it so much larger. I use a Garix case on the XP1 to give more depth to get hold of. Have ordered the new Fuji grip for the XP1 to see how that works out.
    Once a camera gets above a certain size, I can't put it in my pocket, so if matters little if it is bigger and benefits me for more comfortable holding. My main constraint is weight, given my back problems. Fortunately I do this as a hobby...

    Anyway, now my Olympus m4/3 equipment has gone, I will be looking at the XT1, not immediately, but once I can see me being physically able to make good use of it and do a bit of travelling. Got to have some aims and things to look forward to.

    In the meantime I will continue to enjoy the stuff written and the photos shown on this site.

    Thanks all.

    By coincidence we were talking about David Bailey tonight, and the Olympus Trip ads he did. Always fun to look at other people's bookshelves.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Jono,

    great results already! I think you MUST love the XT1 seeing these

    IHMO the Fuji (in my case XE2) has better IQ than the EM1 and also the glass is by no means inferior to Olympus glass.

    What is my main hesitation point is that Fuji so far misses some super tele lens(es) like the 100-300 or 75-300 equivalents from m43, although optically I am not convinced by both of them, especially at 300. But if Fuji comes with the rumored 120-400 and it has similar IQ at long end as the 55-200, then I will be completely sold, even to the point that then I might not only sell my m43 gear but also my Nikon gear (which gives me the long tele zoom today).

    Add to this that Fuji is rumored to bring some really revolutionary new sensor soon (based on organic sensor) then you could also have much higher resolution plus same or even better DR as available today. Future looks bright

    Hi David
    There are some crazy deals around. I notice that if you buy an XP1 with the 18mm you also get a free lens (so that the body effectively costs about £100). Fortunately they're all around til the end of March, which gives me time to think!

    As far as the grip goes- not going to bother, I never use them or like them much. One of the things I really like about the XT1 is the small size.

    If I do hang on in, I suppose I might like the 14mm and the 55-200. Well see

    Hi Jono,

    Mind sharing where that deal is.
    Looks like a great travel camera with just two zoom lenses.

    It is for UK citizens only. Hopefully this promotions will come to the barbarians as well later on.
    Could not find that XT1 promotions. If it is any good one could almost be all set with that combination while travelling.

    Yes, when I think back to what I paid for the XP1 in 2012!

    I received the 55-200mm today, it seems to be fine and the OIS works well on the XP1. OVF does not work above 60mm though, but I suppose that makes sense. The EVF is better for the longer FL probably. Close focus might have been a bit shorter too, but I do have the Macro lens. Only lens I don't have is the 27mm. 18mm I use mainly for IR where it seems to work better than at visible oddly. It needs RAW though because JPG lens distortion correction gives stretched soft corners. The 18-55 is better at 18 than the 18mm prime is I would say.

    14mm is a cracker though, certainly one you may like to get if you find yourself drawn to keeping the system. Incidentally I see Fujifilm are in Dis! Just noticed when I registered the new lens.

    My 23mm lens and grip for the XP1 have been sent to the wrong depot today so have to wait until tomorrow now. Oh well.

    Fine on your thoughts on grips, I just sold my OMD grip and 35-100mm Panasonic to a very good friend of mine today, so not been such an expensive month for me after all.

    Cheers

    Sorry to hear that Michiel. Canada and the UK seem to have the best promotions for some reason, hopefully your turn will come.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I posted an example of the new Velvia profile above and here is a comparison (100% crops screen grab) of a raw file from the X100S processed in CS6, ACR 8.4 using the Provia camera standard profile and X100S lens profile vs the same file processed using the same exposure, sharpening, etc. in LR5, but with Adobe standard camera profile and no lens profile. I wonder when we will get the new profiles for LR.

    With all the talk of the new XT-1 it's easy to forget how good the original X-100 is.. I took a day off and went to town with the family to pick up a new sofa for the studio... and couldnt be bothered to drag my camera bag with me and just pulled the x-100 off the shelf and thats it...

    Congratulations Jono…..I love it when you advance scout. I am pretty firmly in the Fuji camp. Really stellar optics.

    Thanks for posting Carl the ACR 8.4 profile. I so rarely use Photoshop these days, but the difference piques my curiosity. LR updates usually follow closely, but I'll download ACR tonight and play.

    Hi David. So far I'm loving the camera. I've only had it for a couple of weeks, and haven't been able to really run it through any testing, but the ergonomics are good, and coming from the X-Pro1 it's pretty intuitive. The differences are improvements, so I'm happy. Truth is, I wasn't even aware that it wasn't supported my Lightroom yet, but I found the Beta ACR 8.4, so I was at least able to see the hundred-odd shots I've taken with it so far. I've used one manual lens on it today, and must say that the focus peaking is superb.

    I hope to get a chance to shoot more soon, and will post as I can.

    First hour with the Fuji X-T1

    Brown truck arrived and delivered the X-T1. All components were in the box. Likes and dislikes are from the first hour of getting to know the X-T1 while sitting in my office neglecting work.

    What I like....

    EVF is gorgeous.. the best I have ever used... an what they say is true.. you might at first think you are looking through an OVF.. not quite that good but damn! It's really good.

    Tilt LCD will come in extremely handy.

    Love the controls on the top of the camera: ISO, shutter speed, metering, etc. I hate digging through menus or playing with touch screens. These controls were made for photographers... or at least those of us who predate digital and smart phones.

    Size.. just right for me.. I like using small cameras and this one is just right.

    Build.. solid.. memory card door is not an issue.

    AF.. seems snappier than that of the X-E2 and much better than X-Pro 1.

    Focus Peaking colors.. could not be better.. I use red.. especially good when in B&W mode. I tried my Rokkor 58 f/1.2 and it's perfect. Also tried the Rokkor 135mm f/2.8.. even better.

    What I don't like.. and it is a short list.

    Buttons on 4 way controller.. same gripe as everyone else.. recessed too far into the body.

    Photo review (chimp magnifier) is recessed way too far into the body.


    Samples? Maybe later today or tonight if time permits. I have to pack for a trip to New Orleans.

    Only regret: I wish I had known the X-T1 was on the horizon prior to buying the X-E2. I would have waited for it.

    If I find any "undocumented features" (as Microsoft likes to call bugs) I will let you know.

    All in all I can exhale now.. looks to be just what I hoped it would be. More later.

    Tilt LCD will come in extremely handy.

    Love the controls on the top of the camera: ISO, shutter speed, metering, etc. I hate digging through menus or playing with touch screens. These controls were made for photographers... or at least those of us who predate digital and smart phones.

    Size.. just right for me.. I like using small cameras and this one is just right.

    Build.. solid.. memory card door is not an issue.

    AF.. seems snappier than that of the X-E2 and much better than X-Pro 1.

    Focus Peaking colors.. could not be better.. I use red.. especially good when in B&W mode. I tried my Rokkor 58 f/1.2 and it's perfect. Also tried the Rokkor 135mm f/2.8.. even better.

    What I don't like.. and it is a short list.

    Buttons on 4 way controller.. same gripe as everyone else.. recessed too far into the body.

    Photo review (chimp magnifier) is recessed way too far into the body.


    Samples? Maybe later today or tonight if time permits. I have to pack for a trip to New Orleans.

    Only regret: I wish I had known the X-T1 was on the horizon prior to buying the X-E2. I would have waited for it.

    If I find any "undocumented features" (as Microsoft likes to call bugs) I will let you know.

    All in all I can exhale now.. looks to be just what I hoped it would be. More later.
    Jim,

    will wait for your judgement once you have tested the XT1. I have a similar issue as I bought the XE2 back in December and had I known what the XT1 is going to be I had waited for sure.

    I want to switch as well, will so what you find .....

    Peter

    Funny that Jim
    It's one of the things I like (especially the 4 way buttons). I'm always pressing them by mistake on other cameras.

    Well, now I'm happier with the files (using Iridient if the jpgs aren't good enough in Aperture). Time to post some more shots.

    Looking better Jono. It was always the Fuji color that kept drawing me back to try again.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    In about six hours I will be on my way to New Orleans for five days and nights of Mardi Gras revelry....er... photography. I am taking the X-T1 and the K5 IIs for backup (should it be needed). This should be fun and one of the best ways to test the camera I know of.. using it for real rather than just test shots. Not sure if I will be able to upload fro NOLA or not but will try to post a few. I plan on doing quite a bit of night work at high ISO so we shall see what we shall see. I may visit some rather dangerous places and I will heed what a local Cajun fellow told me last year when he said.... "Ah hope you don git chor troat cut."

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Finally back to flat stitching with my new Fuji x-e2 technical camera!



    Ok, so its not quite my old Cambo WRS with a 40mp back and 35XL.
    BUT; it does give me 20mm of movement on the long side and 25 on the short.
    about 6800x6800 x-trans pixels, 1:1 ratio and 35mm worth of magnification!
    *apologies to Really Right Stuff for sticking my god awful ugly lens holder on their wonderful rails and brackets.

    This looks familiar. XT1 should show up tomorrow - figure I'll do the experiment. I'm just following the Jono-photo-train™

    From last night, unfortunately I missed the best of this event, but did manage to scramble and get a few before it clouded over and the aurora subsided.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Lower Largo is one of the coastal villages in the East Neuk of Fife, famous for being the birthplace of Alexander Selkirk, the real life inspiration for Daniel Defoe's "Robinson Crusoe".

    We enjoyed a coffee in the Crusoe Hotel, which is right on the waterfront and must be very wild when the waves are high.

    Anyway, it was a fine if somewhat bracing afternoon which blew the cobwebs away and allowed an outing with the Fuji and new lenses, the 23mm and the 55-200mm Zoom.

    Jono, the apples in the basket seem to belong to the variety “Annurca”, am I right?
    Beautiful shot BTW.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Hi Jono, Thanks! - I only became aware at about 10pm when checking the BBC news Web site. Swithered if I should bother to go out in my slippers as it wasn't very great by then to the eye, though it takes a few minutes for my old eyes to become dark adapted. Ironically I had my Olympus EM5 packed up for sale, so couldn't use its excellent live bulb feature. Anyway the Bulb setting on the XP1 is handy enough especially as it shows the time you have been holding the shutter closed. No electronic release, just a mechanical cable release on the XP1 of course. MF with the 23mm was great as it has a real infinity end stop, saves faffing about trying to focus on street lights or bright stars.

    The BBC Web site has some cracking shots from last night - much much better than my attempts, though most have everything turned up to 11 :-)

    A very nice astro shot David, always good to see these. I am using my X-Pro for this occasionally. A "programmable intervalometer" would be a god-send, might have to fabricate one.

    Really nice Jono, but.... I want to shoot raw, and I want to use Lightroom

    Following your other thread with interest, but not convinced at the moment. Disappointed actually....
