    Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I had to do a double take here because my first impression was that this was a sculpture of the 'Alien' from the sci-fi/horror film franchise...

    Ebay

    I have done but I doubt I will use eBay very much. Here in the UK, I've found that several prominent camera shops give you a trade in price which is not far off the ex-fees value you will get off eBay. I've done this a couple of times because it saves the pain of packing and despatching and I...

    Wildlife Photography

    I'd prefer a dedicated section but here we go. I am genuinely interested in suggestions/tips for future opportunities. I took this yesterday morning. Obviously, it was a 'grab shot' in the sense I could just about anticipate what was going to happen but getting my lens onto it was all I could...

    Add a dedicated Wildlife section

    One area of photography which I think it would be interesting to make 'cross camera' is a dedicated section on wildlife. I'm not aware such a section exists on GetDPI (in case I have missed something please direct me to it). It is a popular genre and I would be interested to be able to see...

    XF 200mm f2 plus TC1.4x at all time low in the UK

    I must have been one of the first people to notice the incredible drop in price - also $1900 in the US. Mind you, I wouldn't want to lead anyone else astray with my inability to control myself with the offer on this lens. :-) LouisB

    XF 200mm f2 plus TC1.4x at all time low in the UK

    Well, the X-H1 is no more. Much as I like the X-H1 I like it more that it has paid for approximately 40% of the X-T4. And my X-T3 will now become my second camera on shoots where I need one (probably only a few more over the next year, or so). As far as all the other stuff I have sold to finance...

    XF 200mm f2 plus TC1.4x at all time low in the UK

    All in all, I think it was worth selling my left kidney for the XF 200/2. All taken with the X-T4. The thing about the kidney is a joke, btw.

    Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Thanks, much appreciated. I was really pleased at how the camera/lens performed in what was really a grab shot as the action unfolded. LouisB

    XF 200mm f2 plus TC1.4x at all time low in the UK

    Got the XF 200 last Wednesday and having sold a couple more items via eBay since then I decided to invest the money in an X-T4. Got it yesterday and it is more than just an upgrade to the X-T3. I'm quite impressed as it feels more stable and solid in use than my X-T3. I was planning on selling...

    Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    First results with the XF 200/2. Heavy beast. These are raw files with no processing but some cropping. I've noticed this with a couple of Fuji lenses, notably the 80/2.8, that they draw colour beautifully in a naturally understated way which belies further processing if you like the look. I...

    FS Fujfilm GF 45-100 f4 - Like new boxed complete - UK sale only

    Selling my 5 month old Fujfilm GF 45-100 f4 for the GFX system. This is a 'like new' lens, looking in Lightroom I have only ever taken 185 photographs with it since I purchased it in December 2020. The glass is perfect, the front element was protected with a 82mm filter (not included) since...

    XF 200mm f2 plus TC1.4x at all time low in the UK

    Not sure I totally agree... for certain types of wildlife the lens has sufficient reach. Like you, I wonder what the 'X-H2' might have as features to make us buy it. I still use my X-H1 in preference to my X-T3 for a lot of work, (hell, I use it in preference to my GFX50R!) except for wildlife...
