    LOL - took my bloomin' ages to get rid of them ;)

    Yes you're right, some of the cloning was a wee bit sloppy so have tidied it up a bit (also missed some reflections in the water)

    Final version as below :)

    Sorry for highlighting that Mike, I'm sure most people wouldn't notice. It's a location I visit a lot though so the first thing that drew my eye was what I knew was missing. You're first image was better than my usual attempts to clone out the wires so now I usually leave them or go when it's dark. If you haven't been for a night shoot it's well worth a visit when the lights are on.

    I've posted these too many times so here is a link to a couple of night shots.

    @mickledore well it's certainly different, sight better than all those bloody wind turbines that are ruining the land and seascape.

    So according to Fuji Rumors, there's an X-T2S on the way! And the X-E3 will have hardware features that no other Fuji body has :) Ooh and IBIS will be in future bodies. So many rumours, so little time!

    Really like this shot, it shows off how good the Fuji's capture a shot. I think anyone who thinks the small bodied cameras are any less capable are fooling themselves.

    For anyone using xtransformer software new beta available.
    The Iridient X-Transformer 1.0 beta 4 update is now available for download! Iridient X-Transformer beta 4 is supported on both macOS 10.7 or later and 64-bit editions of Windows 7 or later.

    The new version can be downloaded here:
    http://www.iridientdigital.com/products/xtransformer_download.html

    This release includes bug fixes, performance improvements and several new features. New feature highlights include:

    1) An all new Lightroom scripting plug-in which for most users will likely be the preferred way of transferring images from Lightroom to X-Transformer and back as quickly and efficiently as possible. The plug-in requires no additional Preferences setup and avoids some of the limitations and unnecessary intermediate image processing applied by Lightroom when using "Edit In" . This plug-in also provides a quick and easy option to launch X-Transformer and bring it to front for settings adjustments prior to processing images.

    To install the plug-in choose "Install Lightroom Plug-in" from the Help menu in Iridient X-Transformer.

    2) The in-camera Fujifilm film style presets can now automatically be translated into Lightroom adjustment metadata such that the film style chosen in camera is also the initial Camera Profile selected when the DNG is opened into Lightroom/ACR. This feature is specific currently to Lightroom/ACR only and will not translate the film styles over to other RAW processors. This option currently is not turned on by default and can be found on the "DNG Options" panel.

    3) The camera's star rating values are now translated into standard XMP metadata fields such that they will be loaded by Lightroom/ACR/Bridge and other programs that support standard star rating metadata.

    4) There is now an option to embed an Iridient specific camera profile into the DNG. This "Iridient Standard" camera profile should be a slightly better match to the default camera profile used by Iridient Developer. However, due to inherent differences in the default profile formats used (ICC versus Adobe DCP) the match will not be exact. Lightroom also insists on defaulting to its own "Adobe Standard" camera profile regardless of what's embedded in the DNG so use of this profile in Lightroom requires manually selecting it after opening into Lightroom. For now the "Adobe Standard" camera profile remains the default.

    If you encounter any issues with this beta please let me know at <support@iridientdigital.com> as soon as possible.

    The full Iridient X-Transformer version history including detailed release notes for version 1.0 beta 4 can be viewed at my web site here:

    Anyone using thinktank retrospective bags for their kit? I used to have a 30 and really liked it.
    Now want another for my xt1, 18-55, 30 f1.4 and samyang 12mm, plus my lee 10 filter holder, adapter rings, remote, spare batteries etc.

    I'm wondering if the 5 will be slightly too small, so thinking maybe the 7 or 10.
    If anyone has experience with them, would be good to hear.

    But not the old X-Fujinon lenses, they would need an adapter.

    Yup, got one here. I use it on a cheap €10 adapter I got from amazon, works just fine. I need to use it more though, but seems like a fun lens. You can get some 'swirly' bokeh/backdrop with a little experimentation

    [​IMG]Irish winter weather report 2017 by Enticing Imagery, on Flickr

    And it seems plenty sharp and contrasty enough to me also:

    [​IMG]Helios 44-2 contrast test by Enticing Imagery, on Flickr

    Both shots using the XT-1 + Helios 44-2 + cheap adapter

    I paid €50 [about £43] for mine, though it is a very nice copy, I'm sure you can get them a lot cheaper.

    Bought a used XT-1 and it turned up today.

    Has a broken dial lock on the shutter speed dial.

    I don't mind because I don't like the locks anyway.

    Is this common and can it be fixed somehow ?

    My bad, it does lock in the A position on the shutter dial so I assume that is how they are from new.

    I've been pondering over buying a Fuji and narrowed it down to the X-T20 with a 16-50 kit or possibly 18-55. I currently use Nikon, I have two D750's and various lenses and although i'm not thinking of moving across to Fuji, i just like the retro look and the size of these. I'd prefer the 16-50 kit for price reasons and the extra 2mm on wide end as opposed to the 18-55, but I was wondering what the quality is like? I may even get the body only and get a prime to couple up. Due to the amount of Nikon kit i currently have, i don't want to spend a fortune going down the Fuji path, it's a good quality walk about lens i'm after to go with the body. Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Until tomorrow (RIAT) easily the quickest things I've shot with my XT2. ISO4000, it's dark! Head-on too but not missed a beat. Love the heat haze + bringing the ISO grain/noise out a bit.

    Reckon I might be able to guess where that is, very atmospheric photo guessing first world war era.

    Got the drift regards the tickets, unfortunately we are going for the 1940's event, below is from the website

    Does not apply on re-entry to 1940’s / World War II events

    Thanks for the thought though, coincidentally I went here last Friday http://www.eatransportmuseum.co.uk/ and also got a 12month readmission ticket.

    Ah yes. The 1940 weekend is not covered. Shame - for both of us.
    East Anglia is way too far for me. But then where we live makes everywhere a bit of a trek.

    Don't normally shoot people but this just dropped right for me.
