  • “Fun with MF images” (and similar) has been one of the most popular threads but its length is almost impossible to navigate as it spans years. In order to organize such threads and make them manageable, we decided to split them by years. So every year we will start a brand new thread, for example “Fun with MF images 2021.” The older threads are still available for viewing but posting there will be locked.

Fuji X-T30

For using my old Canon lenses I bought some weeks ago Fuji X-T30 + 15-45mm,
a nice camera, adequate my GX9 - small and light weighted. The only thing I miss
is the tlltable EVF of my GX9/GX7.

Also I bought a Viltrox Booster EF-FX2 and an adapter EF-FX, additional battery/charger,
ArcaSwiss grip, eyecup, 10/16m macro rings.

With these two adapters I can use automatic Canon lenses, but also my
manual Samyangs 8/14/35/85/500 - and also my manual 60mm/macro 2:1
and 15mm/macro 1:1







First try with 15-45mm ... inserting battery, sdcard ... ready
All photos out of camera, no postprocessing, only cut & resized.







.. and some macros ...









... and timelapse:

Now for my X-T30 I have a battery dummy, so with 230V->9V adapter
or my ANKER power bank (25.000mAh, 3x 5V, 1x 9V/12V) each camera
with endless power can provided.
I now wanted a smaller pack, which can be attached to the tripod with a strap.

Actually, these things are intended for bicycle light, but they deliver 8.4Volt (= 2x 4.2V),
So it's great for cameras. Amazingly a fully charged battery (350-450 images) can make -
every 3 seconds one picture - 2500 shots!

With this PowerPack the number of pictures multiplies enormously.
18650 LiION batteries - I have 4 pieces with 12.000mAh each
ordered for 8 € from China.

Today arrived 6x 18560 batteries for Fuji powerpack and macro rings for FUJI.
So I made first tries with these 10/16mm rings, I have also 10/16mm rings for Sony, Lumix, Samsung ...
Low prices and good results! They fit 100%!

Thanx!

Yeeees, I love my Fuji - I miss only tiltable EVF from GX7/GX9 :), but a 3x display viewer
makes great 9" 'EVF'. Today should arrive XC 50-230mm, amazon 390€, buuuut from
(chinese) UK-dealer only 130€. Youtube videos show: "cheap" lenses must not be bad.

With Viltrox Booster EF-FX2 I can use my 11 ;-) Canon lenses, manual lenses also with
my EF-FX adapter for € 6 :)))
