I know i'm losing 2 stops of light here ..compared to the 56 f1.2 ..

Not 2, Just 1 1/3 stops compaired to the 56. So not too bad!

Took a quick gander and he even used a point in shoot 16mp APS-C fuji x70 !

He's definitely got a good eye! Very talented with good timing.....but that too can be a second shooters perspective in some shots.........

I'm curious if he uses B/W straight out of camera. Everyone has a certain style and I see a lot of crushed gritty blacks and very dark dramatic non filled shadows. I find some images to be very "heavy" looking as the emotion portrays happiness and light laughter. Some images would probably have matched better in colour vs predominately heavy crushed BW photos.

Compressed Jpgs that are having issues to fix in post (blown highlights usually ) can have colour grading issues. When I shot exclusively jpg in my early years I found BW conversion was my absolute saviour. Having real colours perfectly exposed is something I appreciate more but this is personal preference. Much easier to incorporate digital noise in a BW photo compared to a perfect coloured image.

Aladyforty, I'd just stick with what works for you. I think most professionals would now shoot both raw and jpg as a safe means of documenting their work. There's reason why a high percentage of Pros really try to shoot with dual memory card camera bodies for redundancy with larger sized SD or CF memory cards for large RAW files and commonly smaller sized jpg.

I am fine with shooting the X100 in RAW however I'm wondering about my old X10 if I should shoot RAW or not. being as it is an old camera now everything I google talks of issues with processing the raw, muddy photos etc. Of course its now years down the track and I have lightroom 5.7 and wondering if all the complaints would have been the same with the upgrades to the post processing programmes. I cant seem to get the jpegs quite how i want with this little camera and I'm unsure if I'm processing correctly with them in RAW. The X100 is just so much easier to get good photos out of from the RAW format. I took some jpegs with the X10 the other day and blew out some highlights so shot RAW but the images seemed flat even after processing which could be my issue not the camera. Does anyone have any experience with the X10 that could give me some clues as to what I could possibly be doing wrong. I know it an old camera but not in the position to upgrade it and want to use it in tandem with my X100 for travel

There are a lot of variables.

I have an X10 i got in a trade some time ago and shot RAW with it. I was happy with the results I got from it. They were not muddy.

RAW files will often look flat straight out of the gate, and this is a good thing because it gives you more flexibility. You DO want to build in contrast as you get to your final image. The flat file gives you greater control over how and when you build in the contrast.

If you are working out of LR and have no intent to process in PS:

First thing I would do is go to camera calibration (should be down at the bottom of the options in the develop module) and see if you have any Fujifilm film simulation options. If so, these will probably be a step up from the Adobe standard and will give you a more finished look.

Adjust white balance and exposure if needed.

Adjust the white and black points as needed to get a well distributed histogram.

Go to curves and select one of the presets with contrast in the name and see which you like.

Add some clarity to taste (basically mid-tone contrast). Adjust saturation to taste. After you get it looking good, dial it back a smidge (at first, there is a tendency to over do this).

Some shots of a fun dart game the coaches play at a local dive in Woodward. You have 3 darts and have to get all 3 to hit a dollar on the center of the board. First shot is taken with your foot on the wall, second with your foot at the line and last is taken with your foot on the wall across the room :lol:

Bought myself a new tripod yesterday, a Manfrotto Befree carbon fibre. Got sick of lugging my steel 055XB around. First impressions are why didn't I do it sooner. It's 1.1kg v 2.5kg and folds down to 40cm against the 055's 61cm.

I'm on holiday at present, I never realised how much equipment I brought. Carrying 2 systems is ok for a day outing, but for a week it's tricky. I have with me -
Canon 7D,
16-35/4 ( not used )
70-200/2.8 ( not used )
100-400
Manfrotto 055 tripod, ball head, gimbal head

GoPro Hero 4 Black ( not used )
Multiple clamps, adaptors, long pole, extra large fuel cell for better battery life,
Joby tripod
Turnspro ( not used )

Fuji X Pro1 c/w 18/2
XT-1 c/w 56/1.2
35/1.4 ( not used )

Bushnell Trail cam,

Minox binoculars.

All carried in 3 fully packed Lowepro bags. Going to have to give some serious thought about 1 system soon. As I left my Phantom drone and my birding scope at home, I initially thought I had travelled light vmad

Does anyone else have similar issues due to using 2 or more systems ?

If this is the case I'm curious what you'd dump ??

For me I'm really liking the Canon and fuji combo when I go out to shoot. The Canon can be heavier but it's different. The fuji is lighter and again it's different. I like the different flavours both systems offer me.

Today I was considering on buying the X-T20 as a second body. I can handle the 1/4000 max shutter speed as most of my photography is static/slow moving so E shutter wont mess up the photos that bad. In some ways I'd prefer an X-t1 with battery booster as a secondary fuji body.

I use expert shield on all my cameras (available on Amazon). They go on on day 1 and never come off again. They also have a lifetime guarantee

The Canon gear would have to go, the age of my 7D is against it, time has moved on and there's much better options for £££ out there. I have 3 children, 6m, 2 & 4 so we're fully loaded wherever we go before I even think about camera gear. With all I've brought away, my phone has probably taken the most shots. I'll have to do some research on the Fuji 100-400, and the 1.4tc, if that's favourable, that'll be the direction I'll go in. Right now I'm favouring the XT-1 with the 23/56 and then either the Fuji 14mm, the Fuji 10-24mm or the Samyang 12mm. If anyone can chip in with their findings on any of these that'll be helpful.

I've only two kids and there is no way I ever bring all that on holidays - read never be allowed..

The X-T1 is a great camera but the X-T20 has faster AF, is smaller & lighter with more resolution. The 1/8000 v 1/4000 is only one stop so you can always just shoot with a smaller aperture, won't make that much difference to the end result. On the wide lens side I have the Samyang 8 fish and the 12mm both are excellent lenses but there are times I wish I had a rectilinear 10mm [well really a rectilinear 8mm] for shooting in tight spaces or making the most of a view. Some days I don't feel like multi row panoing the shot.

I typically only take a few primes and one body on hols these days. Small bag.
