6500 shots so far this year on the X-PRO2, I got it in Jan 2016, so in to get a clean of the sensor and a check up also asked them to make sure the hot shoe is tight as it feels a little loose to me.

Ah, fair enough. I use the VSGO lens cleaning solution, it's pretty straight forward. I've only felt the need to wash my sensors about once per camera so far though.

I'll admit zone and AF-C does work quite well. Especially that the contrast it massive from a white snow background to a dark coloured cat.

I tested out the 16-55 and I was very impressed with the IQ and incredibly fast AF. If my current Fuji lenses performed that way I would be much more happier with the Fuji system. Man the blazing fast AF is what it should be!!!

I really dig the 16-55 due to the versatile range. I'd probably be shooting it at 16mm and foot zooming most of the time but the long end of the zoom is just great for documentation.

I'm just waiting for my new 50-140mm to get in stock at my local shop. I'll pick it up and if I really get disappointed with the bokeh I'll dump it..... I just want it for versatility. I still need to pickup a 16-55 f/2.8 for the sake of the fast AF.

Out of curiosity, why do you need so much lens overlap with your secondary system?

Well this year will see me dropping Lightroom in favour of Capture One for Fuji files. Just the crispness and colour control is really nice. Lightroom has caught up loads but it is still really far too slow with Fuji files, despite their promises and after working with Adobe (who did good support in offering me a big discount to keep on board - worth the call BTW) the year I said I stay is now passed and the promised speed is just not there. So as of next month the transition starts, going to spend some time re building my presets for C1 using last years Lr catalogue, that you can now import to C1 :)

OK rant over...

Both these are a quick pass through C1 (one is a batch edit). Look at the softness of the background and the crispness & the 'pop' from the focused point.

C1 11 has it going on it seems.

I recently made the switch myself and haven't looked back. The speed upgrade alone sealed the deal for me. Much, much faster with my Surface Pro especially (except for exporting, which uses up a lot of RAM apparently which brings my 4GB Surface to its knees).

The homework blues... X-Pro2 + 7artisans 25mm

The colour wheels are great, same kind you have with a lot of video editors and way more accurate (and easier to use) then the HSL in LR. Also there are layers in C1, handy.

I'd check out the tethering options for Fuji first though as there is no plugin but X-Acquire should work. (10% discount on C1: AMBFR -Fujirumors)

I still like to edit in Lr, I guess I'm just so use to it the workflow is fast. It just takes to long between images and still exporting is a joke, I might have 1500 shots or so from a wedding to export so I hate having my computer choked up and the feeling of having to spend 5K+ on a new machine just to get some speed leaves me dry.

C1 have a file management system called Media Pro you can use it to search any catalogue or drive or even SD card. Not like lightroom and it's loaded catalogue only approach.

C1 really is so much faster, once you spend the little time needed in learning it. Lr can feel a little like using a bread knife to Brunoise your veg after using it for a few days.

How did you find the transition?

Also in other news, X-H1 mini hands-on looking at the usual including AF speed in Low light with the 56/1.2. Just for you Alan :) (@ 3 mins in)

so Capture One would be a lightroom replacement... how about photoshop? I use photoshop for composites, especially with images of my kids. I'm currently on the creative cloud suscription model for $9.99/month. I wouldn't mind ditching LR, but then I'd be giving up photoshop too.

I love using the Fuji 16mm and 56mm combo. I love the 10-24mm alot but I'm totally waiting for the 8-16mm f/2.8 to see how it performs.

70-200mm is one of those ball park ranges that I "must" have.

Hopefully I'll get my 50-140mm early next week. The 16-55 is on my shortlist too. After testing the 16-55 recently I'm really pleased in the AF and IQ that lens produces.

As a Canon and fuji shooter I feel I want both systems to be versatile in every way.

low shutter speed while retaining sharpness is why I'd like to have IBIS.

I think I'm gonna go X-T3 then later X-H2 (in a year or so). I certainly hope the X-t3 will have equivalent AF speed as the X-H1.

Man....G.A.S. is like a hungry kid being thrown in a Candy shop :)

Congrats on your new camera body. I think sometimes fresh toys/tools gives that little extra juice of enthusiasm in photography.

first thoughts on the xh1...
1. The Grip..
i don't need the grip, with the xt2 i feel like i need the grip...not with the xh1. well not in terms of how it feels in the hand , i know there are other benefits which will be useful..

2.The shutter sound .. :love::love::love::love::love:
so soft and delicate sounding

3. The IBIS.. just doing some test shots at home .. but I'm getting reasonably sharp images at 1/10 @5mm !! So Far its great


some minor complaints the the command dial placements being a a little off .. but other wise very impressed

I found the transition surprisingly easy. Once I re-arranged the layout of the editor (which was shockingly easy to do) and watched a few videos online I hit the ground running with it, which is why the decision to switch was easy. I pretty much knew I'd be switching a week into my trial.

I will say though, the one thing I miss from LR is the exporting options. I found it really convenient to export directly to my flickr/facebook/etc. On CO I have to export to the drive and then upload to each place separately... not a huge deal, but more steps I'd rather not have.

Also, as I hinted at before; the exporting takes forever on my Surface Pro... found out why recently when I was exporting on my desktop... with no other applications running and only exporting JPEGs to the HDD it was using between 6-9GB of RAM. Up until now I've sort of regretted buying those extra 8GB of RAM for my desktop since most things I do never use much more than 6GB tops, but now I'm glad I bought it before the price hike :lol:

It's actually got me pondering selling my Surface Pro 4 for a new one with 8GB... idk though, it does everything else I ask of it perfectly, just slow as hell to export with.

Instead of using my Canon gear with Macro
100L IS stabilized prime I'm quite impressed with the MFD minimum focus distance of the Fuji 16mm f/1.4 prime. I used the cheap Godox flash and took some snaps!!

I like the cheap Godox flash over my 4x more expensive Fuji EF-X500!!!

Instead of buying a new Fuji 16-55 f/2.8 zoom I resorted to another product :)

Campfire's Flagship "Andromeda" IEM's (In Ear Monitors). If you've ever auditioned a decent 25,000+++ dollar Hifi 2 channel stereo system you should dip into some cheap $1500 dollar alternatives ;) These hand made earphones sound incredible for a portable setup.

Can you believe 1 earplug has 5 drivers (Low × 2, Mid × 1, High × 2) !!!

ya......I kinda wished I also had 9 rounded aperture blades 16-55 zoom for my fuji too :P

I mean, you do you. I've been down that road of chasing the best possible body for X/Y/Z reason, for me the conclusion I finally came to is that's only a distraction to getting better photos.

I find that if I'm not wanting shallow dof I can probably rock a fuji 16-55 (I love 24mm equiv). When I use a zoom lens I actually use my feet (foot zoom) equally as much. The beauty is you can pretty much get infinite perspective. So actually I get substantially better possibilities in composition compared to being stuck with a fast prime.

I was considering on selling my Canon 80D and get the X-H1. Been struggling with the thought for a long time. I want the IBIS but deal breaker is the 24MP sensor for a fresh innovative body/system. However I just can't push myself to sell my X-t2 to replace with X-H1.

The zinger is there's day I want two fuji bodies during a fun family event. Some days I rock a 5d4 or 5d3 and my x-t2 with 56mm.

The more glass I buy between the two it actually makes the 2 systems even more versatile.

I've come to the conclusion that I will not buy the fuji/Canon lens adapter. Just doesn't give with my demands on AF speed.

New gear can be a motivator ,.. gets you all excited and going out to shoot when you otherwise might not be.

BUT.. yeah it definetly can be a distraction at times..

I will admit that reading up on new gear , trying some out , experimenting etc to me is part of the hobby... for me.

i wish i were gifted , that i had more of an eye for compostition , for new ideas for photographs, concepts etc.
That i was one of those people with such a mind that i didn't have time for new gear . or care for any of the technical specs ..

perhaps my GAS is my way of compensating for my lack of artistic skill :p


i have sold my 80d and all of my more costly canon lenses .. still have the 85 1.8 for sale .. and will probably put the 50 1.4 up soon

i have the xt2 and grip up for sale..
i was hesitant to do this but i wanted to try the xh1 , and i have a sony a7r3.. so how many cameras do i need?? (the answer is two .. not 1 :lol: )
now that I've had the xh1 in hand I'm sure i'm doing the right thing in selling to xt2 to help pay the xh1.
The ibis alone has impressed me so much.
i bleleive it to be better than that of the a7r3.. but then again the a7r3 is a high mp camera and FF , and from what i understand about ibis , it works better with smaller sensors

juggling two systems can be difficult .. but for me they will serve two different purposes..ffirst because i cant afford to duplicate every lens for both Fuji and sony..
and second its just working out that way .. each camera has a different feel (atleast to me ) and i know where i want to go with each one..

I'll have to say you're very sensible and down to Earth!! You just make up your mind in your gear and buy it and sell some of it. I really love the 80D but my mindset is that it's like throwing a 1.6 crop factor on all of my full frame glass. At the same time i really want another Fuji body.

IBIS is like a god send. The amazing thing about IBIS is that you can have fast glass on the body and utilize stabilization. When I owned the 16-35 f/4is I absolutely loved the image quality but it's not really for a events shooter. It would be awesome if both worlds had fast f/2.8 zooms with IBIS (I loved the Tamron 15-30f/2.8 VC) The 16-35 f/4IS made me yearn for fast glass.

In due time when the 8-16mm f/2.8 hits the streets I will yearn for the IBIS feature.

Enjoy your new camera!!!

I find that if I'm not wanting shallow dof I can probably rock a fuji 16-55 (I love 24mm equiv). When I use a zoom lens I actually use my feet (foot zoom) equally as much. The beauty is you can pretty much get infinite perspective. So actually I get substantially better possibilities in composition compared to being stuck with a fast prime.

I was considering on selling my Canon 80D and get the X-H1. Been struggling with the thought for a long time. I want the IBIS but deal breaker is the 24MP sensor for a fresh innovative body/system. However I just can't push myself to sell my X-t2 to replace with X-H1.

The zinger is there's day I want two fuji bodies during a fun family event. Some days I rock a 5d4 or 5d3 and my x-t2 with 56mm.

The more glass I buy between the two it actually makes the 2 systems even more versatile.

I've come to the conclusion that I will not buy the fuji/Canon lens adapter. Just doesn't give with my demands on AF speed.

I think you're missing my point. But again, whatever works for you ;)
