    A few shots with the XT3 and 18-55 kit lens from a walk at Myers Point on the east shore of Cayuga Lake near the mouth of Salmon Creek.

    A few hand held snaps with the XT3 and 18-55 at Ithaca Falls. The OIS in the little kit lens made it possible to drop the shutter speed down to about 1/4 to 1/3 sec to get some blur in the fast moving water.







    This area of the Fall Creek gorge is directly below the now defunct Ithaca Gun company factory and there is serious lead pollution in the soils.



    Three young men flyfishing for spawning salmon and brown trout in a deep pool at the base of a cliff downstream from the falls. No room for backcasts here so strictly roll casting.

    I guess that is what makes the fish sink. Still, a nice change from mercury...

    the X-E3 is just such a handy camera and for the time being I think its more simple and visual to handle than the GR, while with the XF 18/2 on with a traditional aperture-ring you can see it all by looking down upon the camera, aperture, shutter, +/-EV, and then it got a viewfinder too, and even the 18/2 is not a pancake lens, it fits in my coatpocket

    Just received a Fringer EF-FX Pro II adapter (arrived with firmware 1.3 so I flashed it to current v 1.4 before using it). Works perfectly (including autofocus and IS) with full exif transfer as well. Quick sample image below using the Canon EF 16-35 f/4L. Started snowing last night at around 8 PM and still snowing now.



    and one more of the "Great White"



    I am pleased with the performance of the Fringer adapter on the XT3 and the Canon 16-35 f/4L is also working well. Next will be a trial with a 3rd party EF mount lens.

    Continuing with a Tamron SP 90/2.8 DI Macro VC (EF mount) in the Fringer adapter on an XT3. AF, IS, and EXIF also all working well with this lens. See also post in GFX 50R Mount Fuji Active thread for samples with the Kipon AF adapter on the GFX 50R.

    How is autofocus speed with this adapter? Could it be used with a Canon 300/4 or 300/2.8 for wildlife, especially birds in flight? I still think the XF 200 is too short for wildlife and I wish Fuji could give us a 300 or 400mm prime with a f4 aperture.

    Hi Louis,

    Autofocus is very fast with the Fringer adapter when using PD AF modes. The latest firmware enables use of all PD points across the sensor and wide field tracking is possible. Both the Canon 300 f/4 and f/2.8 are on the list of lenses tested and optimized for the Fringer adapter. I do not own any of the big Canon primes (just have the old 100-400) so I cannot test, but you might want to download the user manual on the Fringer website and review the sections on AF and IS. Small single point AF is not recommended as it reverts to contrast detect mode with slower performance.

    Best regards,
    Carl

    A quick trial shot with the Canon 100-400 @275mm on the Fringer/XT3. Focusing was very quick and accurate, but IS was a bit flaky. I think the IS problem lies with the old lens and not the adapter.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Melbourne summer 1. A feature of Melbourne summers is very hot days followed by a blustery front - "the cool change".

    Today it was 43 degrees Celsius and the wind blew from the north at up to 50 knots. Early this evening the cool change came through, skiffs of rain started and the wind abruptly changes to the south west and the temperature plunges as much as 20 or more degrees in 10 minutes. Later the wind will go to the south, but before then we are expecting a line of thunder storms associated with the change.

    The change is starting...

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    That sick feeling in your stomach when you wake suddenly to the smell of smoke. Heart beating faster you search the house...only to realise that it's from outside.

    Melbourne is at least 100km from the nearest fire, indeed the smoke this morning came from Tasmania. Today it has been like a mid-winter's day...the light has been soft and yellowish, a very light rain has fallen and everywhere the pervading smell of smoke. It got worse as the day progressed. Smoke from the east and north blew in, swimming pools closed because of the air quality and it felt like perpetual dusk.

    This however is nothing compared to the communities that are really affected. Their days have been turning to night - black night. So far this fire season around 6 million hectares have burned in Australia - that's roughly 6 times the area burned in the Amazon fires last year, over 6 times the area burned in California. Whilst there is a small respite, the fire will flare again later in the week and more will burn.

    Visibility in this shot is around 150 metres before it is seriously degraded - by smoke, not rain.

    Not taking...

    In this part of the city the air quality is officially classed as Hazardous. Easterly breezes have brought more bushfire smoke into the city and it won't improve for a couple of days. Meanwhile NASA tells us that the smoke plume from the fires has almost circled the globe and should reappear in Australia in the next couple of days.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    There is something immensely calming about water in public spaces. It seems to invite quiet contemplation and on a hot day it makes you feel cool.

    In Australia now there are towns with no water at all. Stanthorpe in Queensland, a town of about 5,500, ran out of water completely earlier this month. Water is being carted by truck from Warwick around 70 kilometres away. But that supply too will run out later this year without substantial rain. Stanthorpe is not alone....

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    The next cycle of hell. The Australian bushfires are just the latest example of Australia's challenges. For several years much of Australia has been suffering from a severe drought. This drought has denuded the landscape and exposed the topsoil.

    Today the wind blew hard and hot from the north. During the day a dust storm was reported covering 275,000 square kilometres in South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales. The strong winds had lifted the topsoil exposed by the drought and driven it before the wind. This is but one of many dust storms in recent weeks.

    In Melbourne a south westerly change is near. Before it arrives however a small portion of the dust storm has arrived turning the clouds reddish orange and the light a sickly glow.

    As we get older either the Akubra shrinks or our head gets fatter...
