I always use English spelling even on these sites that try to American-ise us
The use of color was a deliberate perversion, as was the selective colourisation of the Laburnum shot. It sort of works (the selectively coloured shot) but needs more of the flowers in shot but typically, the sun that was shining on the whole tree is now hiding behind my house, leaving just this portion nicely lit. Never mind, I can try it again if the sun ever comes out again while it's still in full bloom.
Nod bad Nod.
In the Firmware v 2.0 handbook it is on p100/101.
You do have the v 2.0 handbook don't you?
You do have the v 2.0 firmware don't you?
Last night's effort with the X-T1 and 10-24. Can't make up my mind on whether to upgrade to an X-T2 or not... any honest (!) opinions on whether the IQ is noticeably different?

I'll try to find the time to do a few test shots using the 100-400 and both bodies (using that lens to ensure the same subject position between the shots from the different bodies.) TBH, in terms of IQ, the only real difference is the ability to crop into the X-T2 images a bit more while keeping plenty of megapixies, it's in the handling department that the X-T2 is a decent upgrade IMO. I love 'em both! (AND the X-Pro1!)
Lovely image XT-1 shooter here also [and xpro1] - always wondering the same. From what i gather on here, and other sites that would have done comparisons, the 2 will handle low light shooting a bit better, some suggest it's a stop better but I've not exactly seen direct evidence of this. Other than that as Nod says, a bit more crop-ability, and it'll have much better AF in general. I'll get one when they come down in price by a large chunk, as I'd want the grip to boot. I use the battery grip on the T1 almost always nowadays. I just like the feel of it, and having the back up battery.
Thanks for the replies all - appreciate the feedback + the comments on X-T1 v X-T2
I'm a T2 and Pro2 shooter. The Pro2 is more of an improvement over the 1 than the T2 is over the 1, but that doesn't stop both 1s still being capable of producing top results.
Mike, one word;
"Excellent" shot Sir, nothing really more to be said.
Why would you want to change that? IMO There is no significant benefit in the X-T2 IQ wise. A bit bigger prints, a bit more (well maybe not more quantity but it certainly gets in the way more) base ISO noise and a bit better at High iso. Colour palette is subtly different too, I prefer X-T1 colours.
We took the train this morning and met up with friends in Glasgow, such a lovely/varied/busy City, we love it there.
As we were having a relaxed coffee outdoors I only had seconds to react to this Mr & Mrs couple walking towards us, a rushed 'grab shot', quickly switch on and press the shutter.....fast.

XT2 -- XF10-24
Glasgow is on my list of cities to visit for sure. Nicely grabbed shot every inch of that looks in focus
Well done Peter. Such a happy and joyous picture. You've caught it perfectly.
Are you're pp skills good enough to clone out the passer by ?
I know I couldn't do it...
Thanks Trevor, no way, my skills don't stretch that far.
I'm loving the 'classic chrome' film simulation.

T2 -- XF100-400
Great image that, I'd be well pleased....
Regarding the T1 -> T2 upgrade, a couple of things did it for me.
1) I like to shoot wildlife, and the faster focusing & FPS are a major benefit
2) The joystick, it's brilliant that I can move the focus point around while looking through the viewfinder
3) The addition of Acros simulation
4) As mentioned above, the ability to crop images but still retain good resolution
I still have my T1 as well, it's often taken to work in my rucksack with either the 35 or 16 f1.4 lenses, it sometimes has the 60mm macro on when I'm wandering with the T2/100-400 combo for birds. My wife love using it too.
I liked the light and shape of this one.
It would probably work better in Mono, but I'm going through a colour phase and like the brown tone here.
Toronto Univeristy - X-T1 12mm
Rumour site suggests Fuji EU offers starting next week.
Incidentally, last year Fuji had their cash-back promotion starting in June.
If true this could be the start of Fuji GAS attack! lol
Yes the promotion starts in June. https://fuji-promotions.com/gb/en/pages/promotion
I had better visit my bank manager.

Hi Alan - thanks for your thoughts. I may well get tempted at some point but agree there's nothing much I would change about the shot above
Thanks - appreciate the reply. I don't shoot wildlife with my Fuji and am not clever enough to move focus points around so really it's only a bit more resolution that I'd be gaining. Won't be rushing to the shops I think!
My 90mm just came. I'm very pleased with my kit. 23 1.4, 50 f2 and 90 f2. Just need the 14 or 16 at some point down the line, a second body and one day perhaps the 100-400....... Guess I'm not quite as satisfied as I thought!
Keeping my powder dry for the alleged X-E3 in the autumn
At last I have managed to take a pic of a Kingfisher LOL. Taken with XT2 18-55m
Quick shot of my parrot with the 90

A couple of pix from the outside the Watermill Hotel in Paisley, I can never get the thread mill building to look natural.
I used to live there
Lovely building inside, too.
Guys Im looking into a portrait lens.
Im really confused if I should get the new 50 mm f2 or the 56 1.2 R
Anybody want to share opinions?
Your subject isn't moving much anyway so the focus speed is fine on it, shallower DOF, more artistic breathing space, and more traditional focal length.
Google é seu amigo
Very nice shot, where is this ?
It is in Paisley,Scotland
No doubt the 56mm f1.2 is fantastic lens, i got one myself. Is weight and size is an issie for you? If so the 50mm is a good option. Personally i think all fuji lens is light as hell compare to my previous nikon ff setup.
You are right about that, but there's something about the size and fast AF on the new 50mm F2......
the 56mm f1.2 is an amazing lens but im not sure how well it performs....
What do you mean?
