    I particularly like image 2. This series confirms to me what a good lens that short zoom is...not to mention the photographers of course

    RayLee HomesMirador White Rock 1

    Mirador White Rock is a website that also contains the following map.



    This map shows the housing building site in White Rock, NM about a mile and a quarter from my house. My oldest son and yours truly visited the site yesterday and shot some images. My son used the Fuji 50S with GF23 f/4 and I used the Sony A7r.2 with CV 10/5.6.

    One can enter the site in the middle from St. Road 4. Public access is available to the entrance street, appropriately named La Vista Dr, and the 2 streets to the right. Those 3 streets have an asphalt cover. The area to the left of the entrance street has dirt roads for use by construction crews only.

    At the very end of the 2 streets to the right currently about 30 houses are under construction, 4 houses (visible in the image below) seem finished with the new owners already moved in.



    All images shot with Fuji GFX 50S + Fujifilm Fujinon GF23mm F4 R LM WR @ 23 mm (18 mm in 35mm).

    We chatted with one of the new owners. He told us houses were going for between $380k and $460k, 160 houses in total were going to be built eventually. There were no constraints other than qualifying for a bank loan, so it's a regular commercial project.

    This commercial housing development project - according to him - started about 8 years ago. First the county had to acquire the land from the Department of Energy (DoE) and sell it to a commercial developer. A lot of time and work went also into the preparation of the building site. I noticed construction of houses commenced earlier this year, several months ago.

    The street closest and parallel to St. Road 4 is a dead end street. From the dead end one has the following view.



    Apparently a park is planned for this area. It borders on a Visitor Center, Public Library, grocery store, restaurant and hotel. In the distance one can see the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Turning around at the dead end one has the following view.



    To the right in the above image are the houses under construction along the the other street parallel to St. Road 4. A more detailed look at the house in the left part of the above image follows.



    Now going back up the street, we followed to get here, there are these views.







    Further up the street is a lot where house construction hasn't started yet.

    Now the view from above where the entrance street connects with the second street to the right in the subdivision.



    More views proceeding down that street.





    And the final view of house construction along this street that doesn't have a dead end but curves back to St. Road 4 across from the Public Library.



    All images shot with Fuji GFX 50S + Fujifilm Fujinon GF23mm F4 R LM WR @ 23 mm (18 mm in 35mm).

    Re: FUJIFILM GFX 50S, 50R, 100, etc. ... Peculiarities

    Need help on this one, or drugs to calm me

    On the 50R the interval timer shooting setting is greyed out...I've changed just about every other setting on the camera to no avail. I've consulted the documentation with no benefit. I've searched the web and come up cold.

    Does anyone have any idea what the setting is to "un-grey" the interval timer shooting setting...or do you have a recommendation for a good calmative drug?

    from the manual:

    Interval timer photography cannot be used with multiple exposure photography. In burst mode, only one picture will be taken each time the shutter is released.

    mmm, the 50s manual also mentions bulb mode not suitable for interval timer.
    perhaps reset to factory settings ?

    Re: FUJIFILM GFX 50S, 50R, 100, etc. ... Peculiarities

    I generally have mine set on T but I had already also tried a fixed shutter speed and A...but to no avail.

    I really don't want to go to factory settings, I've got the camera set up just how I want it and it's a pain to start again.

    Grrrr this is a key failing of the Fuji interface which I otherwise really like. When menu items are greyed out there is no feedback as to why. It's really frustrating. To top it off Customer support is closed until Thursday next week.

    Mmm, I understand your reluctance. So hopefully some one has a clue and can help you out.
    Still, going back to factory settings might be your last resort.

    Note: I only managed to get the 'Interval Timer' option greyed-out, when I put my 50s in bulb-mode.

    Brgds.

    Re: FUJIFILM GFX 50S, 50R, 100, etc. ... Peculiarities

    Well frustratingly this is solved but not solved!!

    36 hours ago I gave up in disgust after making repeated changes to settings, checking whether the Interval Timer setting was available...and all to no avail. I checked for the last time and shut the camera off.

    Today, having mentally prepared myself to join the fray once more, I turned the camera on and the Interval Timer setting...was available. I don't know what the last thing I changed before I shut the camera off was, but I do know I changed batteries after I shut it off.

    It's available, it works, however with shutter at 1/8s and interval at 1s the camera can't keep up with the write speed - JPG and uncompressed RAW. It would cycle 3 shots, then pause, then 3 shots, pause...The card is a 300 MB/s UHS II. I changed it to 3s interval and it just keeps up.

    I have no clue of what’s going on.

    Could it be that certain changes only take effect after the camera is switched off or without power? Maybe you discovered a bug.

    Congratulations to get that feature to work within camera constraints!

    Yes
    Very nice with one limitation : no IBIS or in lens stabilization, so great care must be taken not to move

    Also since the AF is reasonably fast but not instant it is necessary to practice if the idea is to take pictures with fast moving subjects like cars or motorbikes

    Some very nice points :
    a/ light 1 kg / 2 lbs
    b/ rainproof (with a UV filter in front of the lens)
    c/ it is possible to carry the body and the lens (separately) in the pockets of a coat or of a jacket with large pockets

    Guy

    FUJIFILM 45-100mm f/4 Zoom Lens for GFX
    https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/63558852







    Looking at the cited reference above, it seems the GF32-64 is optically slightly better than either the GF45-100 or the GF100-200.

    Not sure if that matters.

    For me the Gaf32-64, GF45, GF110, GF120, and GF250 seem to cover the focal length range presumably sufficiently well.

    More views proceeding down that street.





    And the final view of house construction along this street that doesn't have a dead end but curves back to St. Road 4 across from the Public Library.



    All images shot with Fuji GFX 50S + Fujifilm Fujinon GF23mm F4 R LM WR @ 23 mm (18 mm in 35mm).
    Always interested in building processes. Just out of curiousity; Is this a sort of compressed plywood. It doesn't look very solid to me. Do they put insulation on top of it and plaster it afterwards?

    Thanks Michiel.

    Typical residential construction around here utilizes 2x4 studs on 16” center or 2x6 studs on 24” center. At the outside they use Oriented Strand Board (OSB), a slightly different engineered material to Plywood sheets. At the inside they use drywall/sheet rock, called Rigipsplatten in Germany. The void in between the studs and sheets (3.5 or 5.5” deep) is filled with insulation material, typically glass fiber wool or nowadays sprayed on foam. The outside OSB material of this wall is then covered with a fine wire mesh and plaster. The inside drywall gets a thin granulated white paint.

    That seems to do the job around here, about the same latitude as Casablanca in Morocco, with an altitude of 5000 t0 8000 feet for settlements, mountains up to 13000 feet. Typically here houses don’t have basements.

    I hope this explanation helps.

    Ah thanks for the insights on this! Interesting. Those OSB plates must have been made a sort of waterproof otherwise it would be woodpulp after one rainshower. Funny how these tine pieces of metal stick out from the concrete foundation probably to fix the studs. Probably they fix the studs a bit more with iron angles to the concrete against getting blown away in a storm, because the whole construction seems to be relativly light.

    Well the studs simply carry the downward load of the building. The studs get nailed to the baseboard that is ankered with bolts to the concrete foundation. The OSB sheets are nailed to the studs and the baseboard. Shear forces are absorbed in the OSB and drywall sheets. Head on wind pressure is absorbed by the base plates, and in part via the ceiling by outside and inside walls perpendicular to a particular outside wall, no?

    The residential buildings seem pretty sturdy, only destroyed by hurricanes or tornados. Luckily for us those weather phenomena don’t occur here in the Rocky Mountains.

    Hurricanes, in the northern hemisphere moving from east to west and from south to north, occur occasionally along the gulf of Mexico or the east coast. Tornadoes primarily in the vast north-south expanse of the Great Plains between the Appalachian and a Rocky Mountains.

    Moisture is indeed a concern for OSB boards in particular the board edges, although there are different grades. Here in the deserts and even the mountains of New Mexico we don’t have a lot of precipitation. Humidity, especially in the Winter, is very low. Snow and ice here primarily simply evaporates and does not tend to collect in puddles of water.

    Today, having mentally prepared myself to join the fray once more, I turned the camera on and the Interval Timer setting...was available. I don't know what the last thing I changed before I shut the camera off was, but I do know I changed batteries after I shut it off.

    It's available, it works, however with shutter at 1/8s and interval at 1s the camera can't keep up with the write speed - JPG and uncompressed RAW. It would cycle 3 shots, then pause, then 3 shots, pause...The card is a 300 MB/s UHS II. I changed it to 3s interval and it just keeps up.
    Try it with a full battery vs. one nearing empty. Some functions, like firmware update, won't work if the camera thinks the battery isn't charged enough. Just a wild guess...

    Thanks Matt, I'm not sure what the situation was, the battery was pretty full before I changed it. Anyway, it works now

    Mirador White Rock 3
    3 New Streets : La Vista DrConfianza StMirador Blvd



    La Vista Dr enters the Mirador Subdivision in the middle from NM 4, crossing first Confianza St, and then connecting Mirador Blvd at the backend.



    Fuji GFX 50S + Fujinon GF120mm F4 R LM OIS WR Macro @ 120 mm (95 mm in 35mm), f/11, 1/125 s, ISO 100.

    As a street name Confianza St seems an interesting inspired choice. It means:

    Confianza (English: trust) is a Latin American form of mutual reciprocity. In the context of interpersonal relationships, its presence indicates that both parties recognize a mutual duty to honor their relationship by extending specially favorable treatment.


    La Vista Dr also seems appropriately named. This is the view down Confianza St, the snow capped mountain to the right is Truchas Peak, a 13,000-der.

    Are there more reports like this that you know of ?

    TIA

    PS So far I only updated my GF23. Update: and a few minutes ago my GF32-64.
    About GFX 50R.
    Have anyone experienced lens/software distortion of that kind that everything is wrong and images completely destroyed? That happened to me recently. After my trip to northernmost and easternmost part of Norway (towns Vardø and Vadsø), I looked thorough all the pictures briefly in Bridge, just to find out the about every 4-5th image is completely distorted. Also some other pictures that seems OK are not good, as in some cases the vertical lines are sharp while the horizontals looks out of focus. In other cases parts og images are unsharp.
    I bought my camera late in 2018, it must have been one of the first, but havn't had any problems by now. Have never heard of updating lenses, but even without updating, the lens should perform, maybe without the newest features. Or one should have been warned that without an update one risks distortion.
    Not sure if I manage to upload the images...

    Hi there 'Kokos',

    uploading a few samples would greatly help to diagnose your issue.
    However, are you sure your memory card is not the culprit here ? Try another card and see if the issue persists.

    Best regards.

    Try 'Attachments' (paperclip symbol) instead to upload your image.

    Whatever I try, it doesn't work. Strange, the image is only of 4,4 Mb. It is the upper line in the menu? the same symbol as in mails? Because the symbol bellow, insert image, they want me to upload image from URL, which I don't know how to do.
    I find this system confusing...

    Now I think it appears 3x. trange that I can't see it at one it is uploaded. But you see, the distortion is severe. The other case, with unsharp horizontal lines, I think it wouldn't be possible to se in that resolution.
