    That was literally my only reason for buying one, though. It's softer, more expensive, non WR...which is what's swayed me to the XF.

    The GFX is "SUPERB" on all counts. The image quality is better than the H/blad that I had before and its so so much nicer to use. After getting one of these I'm sure you'll not want for anything else in MF.(y)

    I have a X100F, and if you want you can borrow it for a couple of days.It might sway you one way or other.:fuji:

    With these film settings on the XT2, do you shoot them in RAW and then the camera process to the chosen film mode? Or do you just get a straight film mode jpeg? I am still trying to work the menus out.

    Whats the general consensus of using the back-button focus rather than the normal shutter button when using the XT2 along with the 100-400? As of yet, but I will soon, I've not tried it for BIF's which is my usual targets when the 100-400 is attached.

    If you shoot RAW plus JPEG. You’ll get the best of both worlds. Choose your film sim. If you want you can edit the raw as many times as you like in camera.

    This shot was a straight Sooc, no editing at all.
    I do shoot both Raw and Jpeg and if like the above shot is good enough then I just leave the Raw till another day.

    I would have expected this, but if you wear your high vis inside out, you'll probably be ok, I know this as often I'm on site in automated factories, Health and Safety often dictates wearing a high vis for vistors, then when I point into a machine etc during a conversation or get too close to a light guard, etc, I often trip all sorts of sensors.....oooops (their advice, turn your high vis inside out!!)

    Just a simple Fujigraph taken at Dungeness Kent UK of an old Discarded Winch, possibly used for hauling fishing boats or catch up the beach from the sea. In the background you can see many other things scattered around the beach with some of them having just been Left Behind.
    I'm also working on a personal project called Things Left Behind and this will be one of the shots included.

    I've deliberately tried to think outside the box as they say with this snap by pushing the contrast and one or two other things to give it a more desolate gritty feel without adding noise/grain and other effects etc.

    X-T2, 10-24mm Lens, 1/350th @ F8, ISO-200, Monopod.

    Great subject George. Have you got one taken with your 55-200. I think a bit of compression with the boats on the horizon might work well.

    Okay, had a minor revalation today... I've previously discounted the 5fps electronic shutter on the X-T2. Read an article somewhere that showed horrendous jello effect and I've never touched it... So, I'm at RIAT today and not particularly enjoying the EVF blackout, especially after using an A9 for a while. So I thought I'd give this mode a go... Now, it's certainly not blackout free but the EVF feed is uninterrupted so for me it's far far better for tracking, and the best thing? Well I haven't seen any jello effect anywhere yet! So wish I had tried this mode a hell of a lot earlier!

    Edit: Spoke too soon, just had a weirdly shaped aircraft :D back to the mechanical shutter which also works at 5fps so all good.

    From my reading in other forums, proponents of BBF often think they are Better Than You for doing so. If you don't have difficulty in keeping the shutter button half-depressed, it probably isn't worth it.

    Right just in case anybody is interested... I bought a 1.4tc and did a few tests:

    1. 80mm on its own: Working Distance at 1:1 = 10cm
    2. 80mm + 1.4tc: Working Distance at 1:1 = 12.5 cm
    3. 80mm + 1.4tc: Working Distance at 1.33:1 = 10cm (maximum magnification)
    4. 80mm + 1.4tc + Raynox150 at 2:1 = 6cm

    So the 1.4tc definitely helps with greater working distance as I had hoped and also greater magnification as expected (Whereas the Raynox lets you gets closer but kills the working distance) :)

    Can anyone shed any light/advice please on a small problem that's just occurred with my XT1 body;

    Hard to explain, but here goes;
    Whenever you shoot any photos and then go view them afterwards on rear screen it either goes into thumbnails and not the next size up where you can move onto the next photo etc.........very annoying. Any ideas.......?

    This has only started to happen outta the blue for no reason, I've used a SD card which was formatted via a laptop and also via the XT1 body etc.

    My XT1 body and all XF lenses have the latest firmware updates.

    Any advice appreciated!

    If I remember rightly you can choose the view size by cycling the View/Display button bottom left. It’s a while since I had an XT1 so I’m a bit hazy about which button it is.

    When viewing the snaps try rotating the rear wheel to the right, this should bring them up to the next larger display size, moving the wheel to the left should reduce them to the next smaller display size.(y)

    Very weird. Can't get mine to do it... as others have said moving the control wheel zooms in and out to that view, but mine doesn't start in that view... pressing the display button cycles between info overlay, no info, favourites, and details view with a smaller thumbnail, but not the thumbnail list view...

    We were only there for a solicitors appointment and could only stop a few hours, I was impressed with the old town, and will be going back.

    City of culture last year, I think some money has been spent over the last few years.
    The old town was lovely and we enjoyed a very nice lunch by Princes Quay.
