    Well I'm being silly of course but if you are shooting landscapes (I assume) with a wide angle lens and a tripod you might as well go for the aperture with the optimum sharpness (and on aperture priority mode) which is probably around tf11.

    Good luck! :)

    Set focus on infinity, then back off just a touch, then everything will be in focus front to back, unless you are really low down, in which case you might have to back off a bit more
    Put focus peaking on
    Don't forget to Set 'Shoot without a lens' - On

    Cheers both :D

    I hardy ever do landscapes and haven't use the 12 in a while, but do recall it being, just set it to something or another and leave it alone and everything will be in focus as its so wide.

    Welcome aboard.
    I've purchased a X-T10 recently and am loving it. This is a very popular thread and the folk here are very knowledgeable and helpful, and Fuji as a brand is amazing.

    Good advice. I find the magnification focusing aid to be more reliable for me than focus peaking, but you should definitely use one or the other. Try both and see which you get on with better.

    Nice close up. Haven't got one decent butterfly shot this year yet. Pretty hairy dude! almost more moth-like?

    Same, I find peaking too distracting and not always very precise for MF. With the magnification or focus check I can see sharp details much clearer. I trust my eyes more than the tech :) Anyone who's done some macro photography should have a good eye for detail, as MF is the only way to go in that dept.

    First of all no one's a pain for asking questions Sir, that's just what the forum's all about, to improve our photography and know how.(y)

    With regards to your off camera flash set up, if you still have your Nikon flash units you can fire them off camera using any basic radio trigger and receiver units available from fleebay. They obviously would only work in manual mode though ie no TTL flash.

    I still use my old Nikon SB800 units with my Fuji set up, but I have ripped the inards out of an old Nikon SU800 control unit and incorporated the circuitry from it into a box I made up with some Fuji circuitry that I obtained :whistle: it enables me to control the SB800 units all from the camera. Took a bit of working out to do but it works a treat.:D

    I'm using the same Yongnuo flash and cheap trigger/receiver set for the Fuji as I used for my Nikon. I did have a pair of SB900 that I actually bought through here at one point, but sold them on before I had the XT-1. ALl I know is, the yongnuo designed to work with Nikon is working fine for me with the Fuji. Manual only, but the YN-560 was only ever full manual for the Nikon too.

    Yes & Yes Ma'am, as a company we are PR photographers for two F1 teams. Myself & staff photographers shoot all our F1 and other motor sport work using Battery Packed X-T2 units exclusively. They are considerably more responsive than the excellent X-T1 units and are as good as the FF DSLRs that we were using.(y)

    What I like about the new Fujis is the responsiveness - there's no lag when shooting which can make a difference. Focus speed is improved with the older lenses like 35/1.4 as it hunts less to acquire focus.

    I just shot a wedding in terrible light with an X-T20 (same tech as the X-T2) and X-T10 (same tech as the X-T1) and found that they both struggled in low light (think ISO 5000 @ f/2.8 @ 1/200th second). But...I still got the results I needed.

    I find a huge difference even between the XT-1 and the Xpro1 even, they are miles apart in terms of AF speed, EVF clarity and overall responsiveness. The Xpro1 can take an age to buffer after a couple of shots in succession where the T1 just breezes it. So I can imagine that improvement again, on top, between the T1 & 2.

    Unfortunately I am starting from scratch - all my Nikon gear was lost in a crash on the M40. I was on my motorbike and a fellow on his mobile phone hit a Porsche Cayenne, which collected me, on my bike, and put me in front of an E-class coming up the outside lane. I bounced fairly well, but my panniers with the camera kit in was ripped off in the subsequent crash and wasn't recovered with the bike. So I am having to get going again from a standing start - hence the opportunity to try the Fuji system. Every cloud and all that.

    Again, I wanted to try and get away from the standard, fast shutter speed, action stopped picture of the action when landing a fish - so I used a slow shutter speed and let the blur tell the story. There is enough 'sharp' within the image to define it.

    Just to prove the timing wasn't a fluke! This was with the 50-140 at the wider end. It was what I had on the front!

    Great pics Simon, used to do a bit of fishing myself. Been a long time, wish we had the tech then when i was young that we have today. Would love shots like this from my old fishing outings with my Dad, Granddad and uncles. Some of whom are long gone now.

    Beautiful! I want to learn to process like that. Then again, I would love to live somewhere somewhere with this kind of beauty (or at least have time to visit).


    I love the foreground interest here.


    I would love to know what you did here. Did you lift shadows in LR/PS?



    These are really nice. It looks like you're getting the hang of the X-T20 .

    Hi! I'm new to this thread. I got my X-T1 a year ago, and an X-T10 a few months later (I bought a lens and X-T10 on eBay for less than either cost alone). I keep the 27mm lens on the X-T10 and rotate my other lenses on the X-T1.

    I love when nature photos have motion blur like this. As for multiple photos in one post, just keep clicking on the image icon and adding a new URL for each photo. (at least, that's what I've done)

    Not pin sharp, blowing wind made getting the shot very tricky, had to accept what blew into the plane of focus!
