Is the Samyang manual focus?

Yes manual focus.. I like the lens .. but will take some time gettin used to


Anyone have any suggestions for a tripod.

I only have a video tripod all

Needs to be travel friendly , but sturdy enough for long exposures..
Getting colder , portrait season coming to an end .. time for cityscapes .

If like to keep it at no higher than 500 and that would be kind of pushing it .
Unless that is being unr3asonable ?

when I had Canon I had a big beefy manfrotto.

When I switched to Fuji, I found a Dolica pro carbon fiber tripod at Costco, was like $199. it's pretty compact. I can't remember the model number off the top of my head, and it's at home.

Nice thing was, you could unscrew one of the legs, and combine it with the center column and have a monopod.

I only have induro (2 tripods and a monopod) and I love it. Mainly for their locking mechanism. I do not like the clips. I like twists.

iPhone pic of my small, growing Fuji family. :D

Still have my 90mm... I may take the ad down.... maybe lol. Only thing I think I would do with the funds is put it towards an XT-2.

Cool sky out he back of my house tonight. Also the Moon is really bright, big and full tonight and tomorrow night, apparently it's known as a beaver moon. It's cloudy here right now but if it clears and I haven't got to the bottom of a very fine Sainte-Foy I might plonk on a 300mm and try my luck.

I bought a MeFoto globetrotter on Amazon a few years ago at a great price, it's OK but I much rather have bought a carbon fibre one so looking at that at the moment.

Call it an artistic choice if you like, but I won't tell your significant other that you completely blew the focus. ;-)a

Processing looks good, but it's a shame the highlights are blown in the top right.

Really? To be honest, I never look at histograms when processing - if it looks how I think it should then that works. The histogram is useful when taking the actual photo.

Taghadoe Round Tower & Church, Kildare, Ireland, another little bit of history just up the road from my house.

The round tower was built in the 8th century with the church added on about 900 years later. One of Irelands many national monuments.
