Two questions I asked earlier but received no answer to:

Why do my posted photos NOT show all the EXIF data? I notice I'm not the only one.

Also...
Observation... photos of buildings I've taken with my Fuji seem to be keystoning way more than anything I took on my 6D. I was thinking about this and is it the actual size of the glass?
I mean the EF glass is physically larger in diameter than the X series glass. Does this make sense or am I getting it completely wrong?

After you add all the exif data you need to click "add to gallery" for it all to appear (I think). As a minimum you need to fill in the blanks manually if they don't appear automatically

On your second point keystoning has nothing to do with the physical size of the lens. It's to do with focal length, distance to subject and angle of tilt. If you stand in the one spot with a 35mm lens on a 6D and take a photo of a tall building then take a second photo from the same spot with a 35mm equivalent lens on any format (crop, m4/3 etc) it will have the same keystoning

Thanks for the answers. The EXIF data for my Canon stuff come through fine and I don't have to add to a gallery... so I'm confused.

A bit shocked at the price of the new 80mm macro lens just announced..$2000!

Xe3 looks like an interesting camera..
The swipe feature could be a good thing.. taking some influence from cell phones i guess?
Either way i think its a good begining for cameras and better use of the touch screen

$2000, yikes! I thought it was going to be about the $1200 mark at most. :(
I'd better start saving for my XF8-16mm F/2.8 R LM WR so

From a shoot for an architect client, part of the thermal exchange system. Not all champagine and models this photo thing, apparently.

Look up the 80mm macro at Adorama. It's listed for USD $1200. When the JPY prices were leaked yesterday for the X-E3 and 80mm people were converting to local currency and losing their minds over the prices.

XF8-16mmF2.8 R LM WR and the firmware update is welcome news. Still no tethering in LR though.

Now about that Radio in their flashes... when?!?!

Finally upgraded to an arca Swiss compatible ball head. (Oben BE-117) Since I added the hand grip on my X-T2 it doesn't play nice with an old slik quick release plate and my peak design sling.

I was constantly talking the quick release plate off to use my peak design and changing it back to use the tripod. What a hassle, now my life is easy I don't remove anything. Random, but yeah lol.

I'm with you. Arca Swiss is a better way to go. L-brackets on cameras are very handy and having all systems work together is great.

Alas, "compatible" isn't always compatible and some combinations of AS compatible are not compatible with each other.


C&C always welcomed...
On my images, of course, and on my words as well--as long as it's constructive :).

The X-PRO2 is, finally, getting tethering for the hols. Happy me although I’m also very excited about the new software that uses the camera to edit raw files on the computer and batch editing included. That will be nice.

Yes happy with how Godox have moved things on.

Fuji is seriously the best at its continued improvement with its cameras. No other manufacturer continues to give you updates like this.

New firmware updates for FUJIFILM X-Pro2, X-T2 X100F, X-T20 coming soon.

Free upgrades will provide support for “FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO”, improve studio flash controller usability compatibility, introduce new AF tracking algorithm and include other functional and operational updates for the ever evolving X Series mirrorless camera range.

September 7, 2017

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) will release free firmware updates for the FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (“X-Pro2”), FUJIFILM X-T2 (“X-T2”), FUJIFILM X100F (“X100F”) and FUJIFILM X-T20 (“X-T20”) X Series mirrorless digital cameras. These updates will be released in November and December 2017 and are a result of requests for improving usability and adding new functions.
Installing these firmware updates will add new support for the “FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO” software which allows the user to connect the camera to a computer via USB cable for developing raw files in camera (X-Pro2, X-T2, X100F).

The new firmware will improve third party studio flash controller usability (X-Pro2, X-T2, X100F) and will dramatically improve the AF-C tracking algorithm in zone and tracking AF mode (X-Pro2, X-T2), add 4K video support, computer tethering function (X-Pro2) and enhance the touch panel operation when using the EVF (X-T20).

* Check the detail update for each camera.

Once connecting a camera to a computer via USB cable, the “FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO” enables users to convert RAW files with X Processor Pro. The first batch processing will also be available. The “FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO” can be downloaded from the FUJIFILM website for free.
