    For long distance shots like the ones I posted 35mm is fine so a 24 would be better, but if you are cramped for space I wouldn't think even 24mm is wide enough

    Yeah, I'll enjoy playing with that too. I assume it doesn't stack in camera too?

    Custom display thing might be interesting, will take a look at that later. And although I don't shoot that much video, 1080/120p could be fun.

    As in the processor that's in the T2, T20, H1 etc?

    I can view RAW files perfectly on my Mac, and on IOS. I have Affinity on the iPad Pro and that works too (although I never use it).

    Steve, with X-Trans3 you have the option to compress (lossless) RAW files to give more card space. Only certain applications can uncompress Fuji Compressed RAWs, I don't know the full list, but I'm sure someone will

    Just a simple tourist type Landscape/Seascape Fujigraph taken at Brighton Sussex UK of the Brighton/Palace Pier. Thought I'd mess about with the PP a bit with this one to give it a higher contrast gritty effect.

    X-T2, 18-55mm Lens, 1/250th @ F8, ISO-200, Handheld.

    “No sepia tint etc tried just a bit of noise added and a boost to the contrast. I don’t care for too much messing about being done to snaps in PP”

    Fair play, I wasn't sure if I'd made the right choice when I first started using the X-T20, but each time I use it I realise how impressive it is.

    I'm finding I can push the raw files much, much further than I ever could with my D7200, today, I've been to the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire steam railway to check out the recently opened extension to Broadway, horribly harsh midday sun and generally nasty conditions to shoot it but somehow the Fuji has produced the results.

    Here is Broadway station, lots of shadows and highlights, I would have binned this photo if it was taken on the Nikon...

    Anyone had a go with the focus stacking after the new X-T2 firmware update?

    Even with the focus step set to the maximum (10) the change in focus is minute. It would take 100s of photos to focus the entire depth of a landscape shot.

    Glad it's not just me. Is it maybe based on the focus distance set? So maybe a bigger spread if you are focusing at 1m rather than 0.1m? I only had a quick play at the breakfast table but will try again later.

    From the manual....

    X-T2 (Version 2.10) Owner’s Manual: P 150 FOCUS BKT
    Option Description - FOCUS BKT

    The following settings are available when BKT SELECT is chosen for Z FOCUS BKT.

    FRAMES - Choose the number of shots.
    STEP - Choose the amount focus changes with each shot.
    INTERVAL - Choose the interval between shots.


    The relation between focus and the options chosen for FRAMES and STEP:

    • Focus proceeds from the starting position toward infinity.

    • Small STEP values translate to small changes in focus, larger values to larger changes.

    • Regardless of the option chosen for FRAMES, shooting ends when focus reaches infinity.

    Just a simple candid street style Fujigraph taken at London UK of a gentleman sitting on a public bench taking a Relaxing Vape. Must admit I like the Contre-jour light on this snap.

    The sun was pretty bright so I didn't see the woman in the background until later. Makes a more interesting picture though.. :)

    St Dunstan in the East is a ruined church converted to a lovely public garden near Monument tube station. I wouldn't make a special journey there, but if you're in the area anyway, it's very pleasant on a sunny afternoon and probably even better in the autumn or with frost.

    Cheers. Seems we're all doing it right then but the focus distance change is absolutely tiny between frames.

    If what the manual says is correct, "Regardless of the option chosen for FRAMES, shooting ends when focus reaches infinity" I would assume that, if you shoot say, 25 frames, focus on the closest point, and set the step high, it will shoot as many frames as it needs to get to infinity.

    That wasn't the case when I used it, but I didn't adjust the STEP setting, just left it at default.

    Like I said previously, it needs further investigation, but I don't have any time this week, so it will have to wait until the weekend.
