I hear ya, but why? You can convert to B&W in post or shoot it as jpg.

Kinda' like making a photo only body (no video capabilities). It doesn't pencil out... unless your customers are dentists.

A true monochrome camera will, first and foremost, use every photo site without the need for interpolation (higher resolution, increased tonality) and will have no color filter array, so light reaching the sensor is not attenuated selectively by filtration (better SNR).

I could see a lot of buttons and menu items removed in the interest of paring down the interface.

The camera is, in theory, mostly built.

I bet Fujifilm could do it for less than $8000 too. LOL.

Better do that with GFX50 sensor or something similar.

My new hood was delivered today from Squarehood.se in Sweden. It's very solid, shows great craftsmanship and is a very good color match for my silver X100F. It is a bit pricey at $80 US with the mid level shipping that was offered (delivery time was 15 days to North Carolina). Care is required when loosening the 2 set screws to level the hood once its installed. I backed one to far out and it fell to the carpet and took me a little bit of time to find it.

It very Sexy!!!

Fuji X-T1 with the 7Artisans 35mm F1.2

Refreshingly small walk around today. I'm really enjoying this cheap little lens. It's sharp at F1.2 surprisingly, at least, enough for me. And I like the out of focus softness transitions, and I like the less clinical flare presentation when shooting into the sun without a hood. No processing on these other than resize and contrast. I like its native look.

I imagine there is a substantial investment in time and effort to the development or they would have done it already.

I’m pretty certain they could do well with it, given that the only real competition is incredibly more expensive than the base cameras on which they are built. And the camera units on which they are built are also substantially expensive.

And Leica keeps updating their monochrome camera, with its premium price, each time. Which implies that there is plenty of demand.

So it stands to reason that there are plenty who have lusted after the monochrome cameras and would jump at the chance to get a true monochrome camera.

Personally, I would love to see a GFX version of the X100 line. Because of the larger sensor, a wider angle of view lens would make more sense. This camera would stomp the Leica Q2.

A monochrome version of the GFX in such a configuration would be, at the level of files produced, only slightly less than the Phase and significantly better than the Leica. And by being in an X100 type of configuration, it would be a killer street photography camera which, I suspect, is the biggest market for a camera like this. Plus it would be an awesome wedding camera.

Here is a video from Palle Schultz about his directing the recent documentary about the story of the X-Pro3 called “Camera Punk.”

Just terrific.

Basic lesson:

Going with a small crew to stay mobile and intimate, I get it. But there is no reason he could not have hired an assistant who mostly stays at the hotel. And the assistant can back up the daily takes. And if that was the only task they did, that alone would have saved the director sleep (and could have eliminated the need for the extra days).

And once you have the extra person, there are a ton of tasks they can take on. And if they have a phone, you can just call and say “could you...”.

And he clearly needed that assistant during the editing process. A second set of hands, even for really mundane stuff, can make all the difference.

That’s why the job of AD is an important one. I’ve done AD and it’s very involving and very busy. If the budget allows, an AD should be high on the list IMO as they will take care of all kind of things about the production including digi of the media, locations and the on screen talent etc. Without one you need to have a solid shot sheet to work from and that makes things harder when a problem occurred (and they do) as there is no one working that out as it happens leading to delays. Taking it all on yourself takes true dedication and tireless focus

Learning how to trust that delegating tasks will work is an essential exercise in any collaboration. On the flip side, if you do it all yourself, you know exactly what each task entails and what you are willing to delegate to someone else, and what aspects are critical to the project so that you do them yourself. The trick is the balancing act between the two....

I'm glad Palle made the video and was able to articulate the struggle and effort. Maybe next time he will give himself a break and hire some assistants to offload the labor.

Simple question...vacation/tr​avel ahead (Japan), if I take my Fuji... which lenses ? Would like to narrow it down to 2 lenses. Have a budget of about 1.000 euro to buy one extra/new lens if needed. Advice?
I have : XT3 + 18-55 + 23/1.4 + 35/2 + 55-200

Might take my Sony A7III btw, unsure...other discussion. Don't care much for IQ, both are great. Main diff is size (Fuji+) or battery life (Sony+).

I don't take my primes when traveling, so I would say X-T3 and the two zooms... But if you want to go even lighter, leave those zooms and pick up the 16-80mm

I say take the 18-55 plus one of the primes. The IS in the 18-55 is nice but if you're in low light and there's a moving subject you're better off having a faster aperture.

I still say take the 18-55 and the 23 1.4.

Unless you know all ( or the majority by a big margin) of your photography will be in good light then take both zooms.

Since you are mentioning that you have a bit of coin to spend possibly.

For japan, .. I'd want a wide angle .. a 10-24 would is a nice range for almost all travel .. along with the 35f2.. I think that would cover most city type shooting .

To be honest I'd find it hard to not bring along the tele lens you have though.. its light enough.

The great thing about the fuji kit you have there is that it's all pretty light gear
