    Re: Sitting Crow

    Darr, I rarely pop the screen on mine. I have the camera set up so that the shot previews in the EVF for 1.5 seconds after I take it. That provides enough feedback and I can press the shutter again and that dismisses the preview.

    I have had the X-Pro3 since mid January and used it primarily for digitizing film. I finally got out yesterday looking for a few birds for a project I began shooting earlier this year. The one difference between the XP2 and the XP3 I noticed right away is the XP3 will save the "2 second self-timer" setting after I shut off the camera, where the XP2 made me have to set it again and again. Other changes I like is the ability to customize the amount of buttons in the Quick menu. I am a minimalist when it comes to settings, so I like having only what I need. The body does feel lighter in my hand, and this is the Dura Black finish. The XP3 screen works great when used on a copy stand. I did set up the Fn2 button (next to the viewfinder selector) for playback when out shooting, but I am finding I prefer to look at playback when I am done shooting altogether. Looking forward to have some extra time soon so I can swap out some gear and add a couple of better zooms.

    Hope everyone is doing well,

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Just the perfect rainy morning for an old lens and film. Unfortunately, I had to make do with the X-H1 and 55-200. I tried for the low contrast old-timey look. 3 stops of DR should be enough!

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I was having so much fun with the Laowa 17mm on the GFX 100 that I had to try the 9mm on the X-H1. It is a cute and capable lens. I was testing it at distance when Soup came to investigate. While not the best focused of the bunch, this has a "you lookin' at me?" character that I find particularly charming.



    Architecture when I get to it. We're close to lockdown here, so don't know when that will be.

    Hoping everyone is safe, healthy, and supplied with necessities,

    Matt

    No, people are out of their ever-fricking minds. Stores are open, food and basic supplies are available, but by hoarding and making a mad dash, it leaves others with nothing. That would be me. I went to the market, Vons (a big store) and they had no yams, sweet potatoes, regular potatoes, peanut butter, yogurt. Hardly anything and people were lined up to the back of the store. I just left.

    So, is it stupidity, selfishness, or fear? Perhaps a combination.

    I vote for a combination of all three, and in spades.

    Our son lives by himself in an appartment. He was down to 4 rolls of toilet paper so went to the store to get a package of new rolls.
    He tried 4 supermarkets and 3 regular stores, they were all out. So he picked up a few rolls from us. I'm sure in a few days the stores will be restocked and then because a lot of people's garages are full of spare WC rolls it will become a slow moving item

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    It is much the same here. I think there is a fair bit of fear in this. We have had some nasty incidents in local supermarkets - staff abused and assaulted. People are now travelling to towns outside of Melbourne and cleaning out the only supermarket in town - like a plague of locusts.

    This is unknown territory, let's not let our fear and anxiety overcome our humanity.

    Stay safe friends.

    One I baked earlier this afternoon using the trusty X-T3 and 100-400. Cooked in the new version 2.0.1 release of Topaz AI Sharpener using the 'stabilise' function and it crisped up nicely.

    Green Anole




    X-Pro3 + XC50-230/4.5-6.7




    --

    I am just hanging around the house listening to the birds and the lizards.
    Green anoles are the friendliest lizards, certainly friendlier than the ones I grew-up with in Topanga.
    Life in North Florida has been quiet. Bought supplies weeks before it all hit the news.
    No need to go anywhere except for walks on the property, but cabin fever is slowly setting in.
    Hope everyone and your loved ones are doing well.

    Kind regards,

    Magnificent!

    I've become a huge fan of the latest Topaz Sharpener and GigaPixel. The key with the former is to apply the sharpening locally. An actually OOF part of the image - hair or branches - looks very weird if when artificially sharpened.

    As for speed, the latest version is much faster than the previous. I don't know how much settings of CPU vs GPU matter, or even if that is a choice. But even with GFX 100 raw files on my laptop, it isn't miserable.

    Completely agree and today I also tried out the layer mode to sharpen only the part of the image that required it. Like all sharpeners you cannot retrieve an unfocused image but you can adjust the some softness in this case caused by the speed of the bird and the fact that I was hand holding rather than using my gimbal.

    Once again, I am incredibly impressed with the noise reduction abilities of Topaz Denois AI. I have no association with the company but it is the first piece of software for digital processing I've been impressed with for a long time.

    --

    My kitties enjoy looking out windows, especially at me. Here is Joey keeping an eye on me.

    Cabin fever is setting in. I make sure to get my 20 minutes of sun each day, and even tho I am part time retired,
    I still need to fulfill orders and ship for my part time business. Wishing everyone good health, mental and physical.
    We will get through this together!

    Salt-Marsh Caterpillar




    X-Pro3 + XC 50-230/4.5-6.7


    --

    When I was a young girl, I use to drive my three sisters nuts with all my critters.
    Somehow, they were never as fascinated as I was with nature.
    That's where using a camera became a cool tool to me.

    I have been using the XPro3 for a few months now, not a lot of heavy shooting, but I do enjoy it.
    The only zoom I have for it, I bought bc it was lightweight. Rented almost all the zooms and found them to be heavy.
    The XC 50-230/4.5-6.7 is lightweight, easy to handle, and for walkarounds it does me well.

    I recently picked up a used 18-55 and not crazy about how the camera controls the lens.
    Fuji gave us back the aperture ring and now this lens does not have one.
    Both zoom lenses and the X-Pro3 in my Slingshot 150 AW will make a great little walkaround kit once I can get out and explore again.
    Until then, all the lovely critters on my property help keep me sane.

    Stay safe, find peace amidst the chaos, and keep your spirit up,

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Lockdown back garden bird/wildlife photography - all X-T3, first two 100-400, last one XF80/2.8.

    The biggest revelation of the lockdown is that our local fox, who I always assumed was male, turned up heavy with milk showing that I was wrong. She did disappear which indicates she has had her litter and she is also a lot more aggressive towards our cats at present. We are making sure she is well fed.

    Hmm... My 18-55mm does have an aperture ring? It's not marked. It's right 'in front' (between mount and zoom scale) of the zoom scale. There's a little switch beside the OIS switch with a circular aperture icon and an 'A'. When switch is set to the circle icon, the unmarked ring adjusts aperture.

    Wonderful caterpillar shot! I like the treatment you've done with this and the lizards :-)

    PINK SUPERMOON OVER CAMDEN TOWN ROOFTOPS
    Taken just after moon rise, last night. I was actually after birds flying in front of the full moon but got none. I thought there was a problem with my white balance when I looked at the photos on the computer then this morning the BBC news website showed photographs of the so-called 'Pink Supermoon' seen in the UK.
    X-T3, 100-400.

    Wonderful caterpillar shot! I like the treatment you've done with this and the lizards :-)

    Thanks Jeff, I will check it out.

    Have only used the 18-55mm lens twice, and have not spent any time devoted to learning it.
    When I bought it (unseen and used), I thought it would be like all my other Fuji lenses, but it is a bit different.
    Always been an aperture-priority shooter and the Fuji workflow fits me well.

    Kind regards,

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    From my lockdown walk today (we are two days into our second 3-week period).

    One is only supposed to be outside for the purposes of exercise and photography is not exactly consistent with that. However, I don't know how others in the forum are coping but I really miss using my favourite cameras and especially lenses. So today I mounted up the XF16/1.4 on my X-T3 and decided to capture whatever I came across.

    My goodness this is a sharp and colourful lens stopped down. Especially combined with the X-T3 sensor and (in some cases) the Velvia preset, applied in post to the RAW file. It is the first lens with the X-T3 which is actually better than my GRIII with its 28mm equivalent lens (and if you follow my musings in the 'other' section you will know how much I think of the GRIII).

    Great lens for flower shots!

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I come to this little strip mall for two reasons. First is to buy wine at the liquor store, which I did today. The man with baseball hat also wanted to do the same but he was not allowed to enter the store because he didn't have a mask. Second reason is to get my hair cut, but that will no longer be possible. I may have to borrow one of my wife's hair bands for a pony tail.

    I never thought the XF50 would be useful in tight spaces.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Like you Louis, I think this is a fabulous lens...every time I put it on a camera I curse its size...then I see the captures...

    We are also only supposed to go out for 4 reasons - essential food shopping, medical or compassionate reasons, work or study, exercise. I normally tote a camera on my exercise so I'm treating this period no different...

    An elderly couple found a relatively secluded spot to rest and enjoy nature at the arboretum.
