    There's going to be nobody left in "fun with Fuji X" soon!
    Perhaps now all the excitement of the series 2 X bodies has calmed down it is time to consolidate into 1 thread again as we did a couple of years ago? Anyone got an opinion?

    Funny that you brought that up. I offer a discount on bulk orders.

    Personally, I don't mind one way or another.

    I think it is unfortunate that we sort out posts by camera model in the first place. Each manufacturer does seem to set some color profile strategies (which you can change), but sensors come from a very limited number of places. You have to ask what is the purpose of establishing categories for posts. If the value in posting a picture is to provide some stimulus through seeing varied and unexpected images, categories don't help much. If it is to provide comfortable "bubbles" in which people can assume that there are no trolls and everyone more or less agrees on the important things, then three categories:

    "I've got pixels"
    "16 or 24 MPx is plenty"
    and "old stuff is the good stuff"

    should suffice.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-Pro 2 and X-T 2

    So, back in the infrared sandbox!

    I bought some infrared filters with different cut off wavelength and went out in the sun...
    (Everybody's Free To Wear Sunscreen)

    X-Pro 2, 10-24mm, 850 nanometer. F6.4, 4.3 seconds exposure, ISO 1600


    The result is a picture that only a mother can love.
    (But I do actually like it with the "nice" artefact from sun reflections)...

    But regarding the next photo, even its mother will have a hard time loving it..
    X-Pro 2, 18-55mm, 950 nanometer. F11, 30 seconds exposure, ISO 6400, Jpeg straight out of camera



    The filters are 77mm witch means that I have to use adapter rings, so the filter is situated about 15-20 mm in front of the lens
    And the result is a massiv hot spot with heavy reflections.
    So all this means that there is a hard IR-filter on this camera.

    Note to self: Always listen carefully to Will . It saves both time and money

    So no more fiddling with IR-filters on this camera. Next step will be a new IR-converted camera. That works so much better!
    Maybe a X-Pro 2 since I already have a bunch of lenses. But I must investigate how the different lenses behaves in infrared.

    Ray, maybe it is just the lens. My X Pro2 is not converted. I mostly use the 23mm f/2 and sometimes the 14mm f/2.8. Under certain situations, the 23mm shows a hot spot, but nothing like your--impressive!

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-Pro 2 and X-T 2

    Lesson learned:
    I just don't want the hassle with different filters if I am to buy one optimised for the different filter treads for my lenses.
    And if I have a converted camera I will be able to compose without problem and work with a good withe balance directly in camera.

    My previous experience of an converted was that it was smooth and simple to work with!

    And I already paid about 25% of the cost for an IR conversion of a camera for different filters.
    And if I am to buy separat filters for the lenses, then I will have passed the conversion cost with a good margin.

    Now I just have to find a smooth way to forget the cost of a new camera and just focus on how much I will save on filters that I don't have to buy!

    I will find a way

    A few with the XT2 and 16mm 1.4. I really think the 16mm 1.4 is a very good portrait lens. Jpg's are quite remarkable too.

    Greek flags were everywhere in Kos, and usually a bit frayed at the edges from steady 20 knot winds:

    DSCF4005 by scott kirkpatrick, on Flickr

    Incidentally, the X-Pro2 proved a bit unreliable on this trip (I had another camera with 28 and 80 mm lenses) seemingly because it ran through batteries very fast, and one battery didn't hold much of a charge. Symptoms were slow boot times or failure to boot up. Removing and replacing the battery brought it back one time. Detective work will have to wait for a bit.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-Pro 2 and X-T 2

    I recently was hard pressed to stay with my Fuji XT2, mainly as the new Nikon D850 came out. But while this is for sure a beautiful and very capable camera - maybe the pinnacle of DSLR evolution till today - that would have meant to buy in again into the Nikon FX ecosystem and that would have become not only very expensive, but I doubt that apart form higher resolution I would have gained that much over Fuji X-Trans files from the XT2. Sure also some more DR but then again I do not need more DR. Maybe some more improved noise performance over the XT2 but again what I can get from Fuji is already above my expectations. And then I would have ended up again with a much bulkier camera system that would for sure stay more often at home .... Yes and of course I would have missed that wonderful EVF I meanwhile got so accustomed to that I even could not get friends with the marvellous and largely improved OVF of the D850!

    Making long story short I stay happily with my Fuji after some sleepless nights (and/or days) and wait what comes next for this beautiful Fuji X Ecosystem WRT camera bodies (IBIS - hint, hint) and great glass.

    Some of my recent shots all taken with XT2 and the 18-55 kit lens, that performs just wonderful ....

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-Pro 2 and X-T 2

    Peter, I too, have stayed with the XT2. I've used many cameras and this is the one I prefer. The lenses are incredible, especially the 23mm 1.4, 56mm 1.2 and 16mm 1.4. No menu diving because the essentials are right there...just like a film camera. Fuji lenses are on sale now too! If I need MF, I'll shoot film. I also look forward to Fuji's new camera tech for the X series. Enjoy!

    The portrait is taken with the 16mm 1.4.
