whats the cheapest fun fuji setup if I will still use a Nikon DSLR system as my main camera. OG x100? Xpro1? X-E3 with a prime or XT-20 with a prime?

What lens is the smallest and cheapest in a standard equivalent focal length like 35mm or 50mm?

You might want at least X100s. As an X100 owner, i can say X100 is great fun and some unique experience, but it's horribly, terrifyingly slow. Slower than anything you've used before, think of "you can't even use manual focus ring for 5s after taking a photo because the only two things you can do during save-to-memcard operation is taking another photo and using autofocus" slow. And also, your choices are in very different price brackets. OG X100 costs less than just cheapest fujinon XC 35MM (not even weather sealed cool one) for your x-pro1 (that also costs more than OG X100). For a price of x-pro1+prime, you can have X100T, or even look for cheap X100F.

x-e3 with 7artisans 35mm f1.2 is my go-to fun setup
it's small and unobtrusive, though evf is kinda small but you can focus no problem with highlight peaking
image quality isn't great if you pixel peep, but good enough for up to a3 print
would recommend desu

are you telling me they don't ship a charger with it so you have to charge it in-cam, meaning you can't shoot while you charge?

you can probably shoot while you charge but the cable is pretty short so I don't really know how useful that feature would be. I just waited until it was charged.

Do you guys use the “clarity” setting on your film sims? I hate that having it enabled shows a black screen saying “storing” after each photo; makes the camera seem sluggish. Contemplating on disabling it.

They only ship you 1 battery with it so I don't see how you can charge and shoot at the same time regardless of whether its internal or external charging.
How do you DSLRcels manage to shoot your cameras while charging the battery externally?
>>
>>3907100
Well, you can charge it with a USB charger using the USB-C port, or you know, pay the $20 for the external charger if you want.

sick shot dude
>>
>>3906875
oh shit, it came in fucked? Feels bad man.
>>
>>3907136
yeah. there are two issues. the first is with the body. the front command dial likes to jump back to the previous setting when you're rotating it clockwise, so it's faulty. and then it does this thing with the lens where it tries to focus and then gets stuck, usually at the closest position, and then displays that "Turn off the camera and turn on again" message. when I turn the camera back on it does this thing where it cycles from infinity to max close focus with a black screen, flashes the screen on for a fraction of a second, and then repeats that a bunch of times. sometimes eventually it will come alive after doing that a bit, but then as soon as I try to focus it fucks itself again. I managed to take like ten shots before it started doing this 100% of the time. I've got another lens coming in the mail so if I'm lucky maybe it's just an issue with this lens and I can put up with the fucked up command dial and use the other lens until I can get a replacement in. we'll see. but it's a brick right now bascially. pretty disappointed.
>>
>>3907142
sounds like someone sent you a dud. sorry to hear you got fucked.
>>
>>3907102
super ace shot
>>
>>3907145
yeah b&h were pretty good about it. when I first called it had only done the lens thing once and then it was working fine except for the command dial, so they said I can keep it and not send it back until they have more in stock. unfortunately then it started doing this thing with the lens which made the camera useless for now. it's weird because I was looking at the reviews on b&h because I was wondering why it had an average rating less than 5 stars on there and there were a couple of people who reported having issues with their brand new cameras, too. different issues, but still issues requiring sending it back. I guess they're having quality control issues with the x-e4 or something.

I’m pretty sure the F can shoot while plugged in, but it stops charging when on.

Posted in the old thread like an idiot.
>>3906058
I find that it's a much better experience with the app these days on my X-T3 on Android. Have you updated the app and your camera firmware to the latest versions?

Once the initial pairing is completed, the connection process is simple:
*Open app (make sure Bluetooth is on)
*Turn on camera
*Wait for the shaded buttons to not be shaded (under 10sec usually)
*Pick option from the main menus
*Wait for the wifi connection to take place (this can take a bit longer, be patient. It's usually much less than 30sec)

Works 100% of the time. Although I do wish that transfer speeds were a lot faster.
>>
>>3907147
can you just use manual focus for the time being?
>>
>>3907243
No, using manual focus makes it break, too. It's like as soon as it tries to control the lens, it fucks itself.

A lot. 30. I didn't really need that many, but there were road signs right before that curch. So to make them dissapear I came up much closer. This is a single frame.

I kinda fucked up, by not lining up myself to make one cross appear behind other. However shooting that was so much fun I would not mind shooting the same church in a same way one more time.

When you try to open an image in lightroom and it's completely fucked, so they try to sell you on capture one or use their in camera editor.
I'm not buying a fucking subscription to image editing software, you've got to be the biggest fucking mug to fall for that scam.

And it's obvious cap one knows they have Fuji users by the balls and that fools are easily parted with their money, as the Fuji perpetual license (which doesn't even cover major upgrades) costs 10% more than the Sony or Nikon one...

How anyone uses this system and doesn't feel like the product rather than the consumer is beyond me, and whenever I questioned any of these arbitrary issues, the cult of Fuji gets super angry and defensive. The users are just as toxic as the brand. If I mention that the a7 focusing is a bit shit, sonytards don't leap to its defense, they usually just agree and we have a laugh over it.
>>
>>3907501
To be honest it's a frustrating situation with all the image editors. Lightroom is a subscription service too so I'm not sure why you act as if you aren't cucked into getting a subscription with that, either. With any of these image editors, if they are available as a one-time purchase, you don't get new camera updates, so if you ever buy a camera after your software, you're going to have to either pay for a new version or not be able to use your new camera's raw files with your editor that you paid for. And if you paid for the subscription, you will get new camera updates and new feature updates, but you are stuck paying forever, and if you stop paying, then you lose the ability to access your raw edits that you made in that editor. It's a totally fucked situation. Which then leaves stuff like darktable and other free editors, but using them either requires accepting that they are shittier than major editors (rawtherapee, etc.) or getting a PhD in alternative editing with weird workflows (darktable). It's a fucked situation overall and I don't think you can blame any camera brand for it.
>>
>>3907517
>you need to pay for updates

Not true, you can download adobe camera raw for free completely separate from a lightroom/PS subscription, so you can still get compatability with all the latest cameras, even if you stick with good ol' reliable CS6
>>
>>3907518
I didn't know that. But is ACR as fully featured as Lightroom and Capture One? I will admit that I've never used it; I haven't used Photoshop in 10+ years. But I was under the impression that it was less fully featured than dedicated raw editors.

ACR is the API and libraries that lightroom and photoshop both use for raw editing. It's not designed to be used on it's own, but within ps/lr.

>>3907520
>how is it fucked
Fuji don't allow anyone but cap one to use their demosaic profile, so you get issues with color and noise.

>cap one is free
wrong, it's $19 a month, or $14 a month just for fuji, or $199 an upgrade cycle for sony/nikon, but $219 for fuji.

>The in camera editor is free
because I LOVE editing my images on a low res, uncalibrated, 2" screen, with severely limited functionality.

>darktable

>I don't base my identity on a product

I mean it's a window that pops up, I've seen screenshots. I understand that you use it from within Photoshop. But you didn't answer my question.

You absolute moron Lightroom defaults to the Default Adobe profile

>the cult of Fuji gets super angry and defensive

No shit you sucking Sony's cock and lying
>>
>>3907529
>it's a window that pops up
That's the basic frontend for it, API's aren't defined by what buttons one program that uses it decides to implement.

ACR is the backend, lightroom is a frontend, photoshop is a frontend, the outdated little window that looks like it came from windows 3.1 is a frontend. All the frontend does is allow you to interact with the backend in intuitive ways.

I had answered your question, you just didn't understand it.

and even if you change it, you're still stuck with standard bayer demosaic.

So why would you assume I'm talking about the backend API when I'm talking about the frontend that literally says "Camera Raw" in the title bar? Because you wanted to act like an intellectually superior cunt and be ACKSCHUALLY guy? I'm a programmer, I know what an API is. Condescending prick. No wonder you're coming in a fuji thread to shit on fuji. Miserable little SOB.

You know what, now the ol' phrase "you don't need to upgrade until you outgrow your old gear" finally makes sense to me, there's people that feel that completely gimped versions of hardware and software are still too advanced for them.

Lmao.

>>3907553

Because the backend is ACR, you melon. You could have done 10 seconds of research after I mentioned it was an API, and you wouldn't have continued to embarrass yourself???

>>3907550
Reviewers compare that to full frame setups that cost half as much, rather than other, real medium format digital cameras, or even $4k full frame cameras.

It might be useful as a niche product, depending on what and where you shoot. It certainly doesn't represent good value for money, and definitely not with a bargain tier, slow zoom lens.

Why do some Fuji cameras come with a hybrid viewfinder? Why would people still want an analong view finder?
>>
>>3907918
For the novelty of it, it's not very useful, but it's wow'ing to switch and look at something not digital for a bit.
>>
>>3907918
>why provide a choice when you can pander to majority 100% the time
Why not? People like retro, people want to experience it, people buy it. It's nice that some things are different from others, and no one loses anything in progress.
>>
>>3907918
And from practical standpoint, analog viewfinder is nice because it shows you more than just frame, it's instant, it feels natural to look through it, and it eats up less battery. To be entirely honest, it doesn't make much sense in modern age because modern EVFs are crazy good, it's mostly just novelty and experience now, but in older X100 cameras you could often feel like OVF simply feels better to use than EVF.

X100v vs xpro3?

I own xpro 2 and like it, but I also found my old x100s and I really miss the small size of it. Is there any major differences in image quality? They pretty much have the same internals?
I got quite tempted now with the 18 1.4 to grab a xpro3 as well. But the size of it....
>>
>>3907925
2 to 3 is a pretty big upgrade in the EVF department but it’s also like 700 bucks more so not worth it in my opinion.
Get the X100 if you can live with the 35mm focal length. I couldn’t stand my X100F because it’s so quiet and gives no tactile feedback. Weird reason but I just felt like I was using my phone or something.

XT-200 15-45mm

Posting this because all my other jpegs are above 5mb but that’s besides the point. I’ve had the camera for a couple weeks now and I still find myself going out daily to shoot. I have one friend who’s into photography but he keeps trying to shill me $1k lenses and shit, it’s quite annoying.

The XF 27mm F2.8 R WR is releasing soon and I’ve been considering that as my first lens upgrade. The price and pancake form factor are the biggest draws for me but I also find myself wishing I had something a tad wider than my 15-45mm at times. I’m genuinely only interested in street photography so this lens seems like a sound choice but I’d like some other opinions. I mainly shoot portrait as well.

so, that stupid little 27mm pancake is one of my favourite in the fuji ecosystem. it's tiny, razor sharp, pretty cheap when you buy it with promos, but it has older focusing motors which belong more in 2010 instead of 2020.
for street it feels a touch tight. you can pretend to have it and just restrict yourself to 27mm for the day and see how it effects your shoot experience vis-a-vis composition etc
>>
>>3908189
Sadly I’m Canadian and have to wait
>>3908193
Yea I’ve seen some reviews complaining about the same things but I feel as though I’m too much of a novice to really be bothered by that (for now). I’ll spend the day shooting at 27mm to get a feel for that, though.

When I look at EVF I see what the final photo will look like, but when I use the OVF I have to imagine it. And I think it helps exercise my brain, as well as helping to practice photography a bit more because I’m thinking more deliberately.

>>3908518
I am looking for a camera with TTL focussing for maximum film LARP. I saw a youtube vid the other day with a fairly good point that you spend so much of your day looking at a screen, when you go out to shoot, the last thingI want to do is put a tiny LCD screen to my eye.
Gonna either get a Pentax DSLR or a Nikon DF.
>>
>>3908522
>>3908526
I set a rough jpeg settings but shoot raw. I’m referring more to general exposure and whatnot.
Genuinely I really don’t like fuji jpegs a lot of the time, the color science/film sim stuff is hugely overrated. My original x100 in astia got better jpegs than any fuji I’ve had since, x-trans is a difficult sensor. Fuji for lens choice and ergos/shooting experience
>>
>>3908518
okay I've never used an optical viewfinder so please tell me: Does it help you focus? like is it blurry and gets clear when you focus the lens? Or are you just guessing about the focus when you take a picture?
>>
>>3906838
How about XT1 with either a pancake (27 or 18) or ideally a 35mm (f2 or f1. 4)
>>
>>3909107
See this page:
https://fujifilm-x.com/en-us/stories/intermediate-month-5-focusing-20-manual-focusing-aids/
specifically the section about cameras with an OVF.
>>
>>3909107
You get focus distance in meters in OVF, you need to get a general feel of it to know if it's any good or not. I'm using OVF (it's just a weird preference, in certain situations i feel like i compose better with OVF despite paralax error, and instant optical preview feels far, far better than digital on non-latest models), and the way i go along with it is using manual focus + autofocus bound to button separately from camera trigger. I get to "shoot" AF (i'm used to paralax, hitting the right spot every time), then i check if the result in meters roughly fits what i see/where i was aiming, then i take the photo. Otherwise, no, the best thing for your case scenario would be hybrid use where you can see OVF with a tiny EVF rectangle of image to confirm/adjust focus, but imo full ovf + range info is good enough.
>>
So here is my situation. I already got a Canon 60D and a Nikon FE2. My FE2 is currently my go to camera for daily use. Mostly family, street and travel shots. I am mainly trying to replicate the analog feeling. Should I rather go with the X100F or X100V?
>>
>>3909199
>replicate the analog feeling
don't.
>>
>>3906788
I currently have the 23mmF2, 35mmF1.4, and 50mmf2. I'm thinking of adding the 10-24mmF4 and 70-300mm to round out my kit. Maybe replace the 50mm with a 56mm Mk2 sometime in the future.
Am I getting to the point of too much glass?
>>
>>3909311
probably, since its all sitting at home anyway.
>>
on my fuji x-t3 I'm mainly using a 56mm 1.2 and I love it, but I'm also feeling the need of having something more versatile or at least something wider.
I shoot people and portraits, I'm looking for a lens for shooting closer photos, when background is something solid and really close, being able to fit the whole body without standing way too far away. But also as bright as possible.
Which options do I have?
>>
>>3909463
35mm f1.4
>>
>>3909466
is there anything a little wider?
or is that a bad idea?
>>
>>3909463
get the 23 1.4

its far nicer than the 35
>>
>>3909472
yes, now we're talking!
23 looks wide enough and 1.4 is bright enough
>>
>>3909472
>>3909466
>23mm is 800€
>35mm is 500€
WHAT THE FUCK
>>
>>3909476
Yeah it's weird. Makes the 35mm a far better purchase.
>>3909471
Of course there's plenty of wider lenses. However if all you're using is the 56mm I feel like 35mm might already feel quite wide to you hence my suggestion. If you really want to go wide wait for the 18mm to drop, it costs just as much as the 16 and 23 anyway but is better in every way
>>
>>3909490
I'm really feeling the 35mm more and more, it seems a good compromise between not-distortion and angle wideness
>>
>>3909476
€810 for a 35mn 1.8 equivalent, weighs 300g
€530 for a 50mm 1.8 equivalent, weighs 187g

€530 for a Sony 35mm f1.8 full frame lens, weighs 270g
€184 for a Sony 50mm f1.8 full frame lens, weighs 186g
(All prices taken from Amazon Germany)

I thought crop was supposed to be cheaper and lighter, but for these 2 lenses they work out at €626 more expensive (almost double!) and 31g heavier, and you're going to get worse resolution and they won't work on sensors larger than crop... Whilst Sony not only has these options, they have more professional f1.4 versions, more compact f2.5 versions, crop versions, and a whole host of 3rd party versions at all budgets.

Crop owners delude themselves thinking they get a good deal, or lighter gear.

>>3909496
I had no idea my camera was crop for the longer time lmao
I still like it a lot, I was never disappointed with the quality
>>
>>3909199
The V is a decent upgrade in my opinion. Better lens, better resolution so that the crop zoom thing is much better. I prefer a 50mm equivalent so I used the digital teleconverter a lot.
In the end I sold it because I hated the lack of shutter sound/tactility.

Imagine what you could do with all that extra space, you could fit in ~1.7 peanut m&m's! That's definitely worth paying twice as much and getting half the resolution for.

A7 is a bit frustrating, the evf is ok at best, the autofocus kinda sucks balls. But it comes in the sleek slim satin metal body. A great option if you shoot fully manual or are on a slim budget, it doesn't have ibis.

The a7iii has all the bells and whistles and is a very capable semi-pro camera, af is amazing, evf is very good, much more slick user experience. Ibis is very impressive. Body is a bit chonky, and looks more like any other tacti-cool grip mirrorless camera.

The a7ii has good enough af, good enough ibis, good enough evf for enthusiast\hobbyist use, if you want a camera to take on walks, go on holiday with, do general "guy with camera" shit, it's a great choice.

50 equivalents are always cheaper than 35 equivalents at a given aperture. you'll find that in literally every lens system from every camera brand.
>>3909496
>Crop owners delude themselves thinking they get a good deal, or lighter gear.
it's true. but the fact remains that Fuji is the only APS-C system out there that has a respectable array of prime lenses to choose from. Canikon only have like two APS-C primes each, and then some aftermarket stuff that's usually very wide, and otherwise you have to buy full frame lenses for crop cameras. Sony has a few more but not many more, better aftermarket options but still nowhere near as mature of a lens lineup as Fuji. so yes you're paying for it, but it's really your only choice for a mature prime system without jumping to FF. and if you like the camera bodies, then you have to use the systems' lenses.
>>3909523

Fire!

I prefer the 35mm focal length more than the 23mm and I like the shallower DoF that the 35mm can produce. I haven't had much opportunities to use the 50mm yet since I got it recently.
You can tell the 35mm is an older design because it's slower to focus (not that it's slow by any means) and you can definitely hear the focus motor when it's acquiring focus.
I find 23mm not wide enough to make a huge difference compared to 35mm and this is my main driving factor for considering the 10-24mm.
>>
>>3909840
>I'm really tempted to buy 90 f2.

Curious non-Fuji user here: How often do you shoot manually with the dials if you have them on your camera?
>>
>>3907102
So long exposure with a small aperture does this? I imagine you had the camera on a flat surface?
>>
>>3910021
Manual focus? Rarely
Manual ISO/shutter speed/aperture? Often
>>
>>3910021
Almost always use auto-ISO, but 90% of my shots I manually adjust SS and aperture. I focus manually about 50% of the time so I back button focus to ballpark my subject, then adjust it to fine tune, rather than AF locking and recomposing for composition. I find moving AF points around tedious. I really like having the dials and knobs.
>>
>>3910021
I started going manual everything on an A6000, and just kept doing it on an X-Pro1.
>>
>>3910021
If you mean focus, rarely. If you mean ordinary settings, i'm always using fixed/manual aperture and shutter speed with automatic ISO. Can't even operate any other way anymore, it's so comfortable: you initially set rough values for what you need and what are conditions around, then autoiso does minor adjustments for you so you don't have to fix exposure in post all the time.

If conditions are way too contrasting (it's usually bright-day-outside kind of conditions), i use automatic shutter speed because it's crazy fast anyway, so nothing to lose here. Sometimes I'm enabling x100 ND filter to turn situation into something a bit more normal.

No idea, i only have X100, but in old x100s reviews from release reviewers tend to say that "s" is for "speed", as it was the biggest difference between OG and new version. You can also see on videos that x100s and x100t is far snappier, and autofocus reacts much better.

the X-E4 is a rangefinder _style_ camera, which means the viewfinder is on the left side instead of in the center. that is all it has in common with a rangefinder. it is not a rangefinder.

Fuji bros. Talk me into a prime rather than the 10-24mm for wide video/vlog work. I'm currently using the 23mm f/1.4 and I need to get wider shots for work stuff. I just don't think the 10-24mm at f/4 is going to give me enough light to work with.

what do you mean? the 10-24 f/4 sounds ideal for your use-case. if its video work you're usually dropping ss to 1/24 or 1/30 anyway so no big deal.
you can test it for yourself by just setting your current lens to f/4 and seeing.

Does anyone make a rangefinder these days?

At least tell me the Leicafags get an extra peeper for all that money they spend for some reason.

Unfortunately, only Leica makes rangefinders currently. I really hope that someday Fuji does. They are the most poised to.

>I really hope that someday Fuji does. They are the most poised to.
????????? what are the xpro models then?
>>
>>3910881
The X-Pro models are rangefinder styled cameras. This means that they have an OVF/EVF combo that is placed on the left side of the camera body instead of the center, like an SLR styled camera body. The presence of an OVF that you can look through makes it a little closer to the experience of shooting a rangefinder, but focusing while in OVF mode is done either using AF or manually via a flip-up LCD that enters the OVF that displays an enlarged portion of the center of the frame in the corner of the OVF. You can also use the EVF to focus with AF or manual focus. None of these focusing methods are rangefinder focusing, which is completely different: https://petapixel.com/2011/04/26/how-to-focus-a-rangefinder-camera/.
>>
>>3910881
You can't focus through that.
>>
>>3910885
This is so cool, damn. There is no digital camera other than leica in entire history of digital cameras that would do that?
>>
>>3910893
The Epson R-D1 was a digital rangefinder, but it is old at this point and no longer in production. I don't know of any other digital rangefinders that were made besides Leicas.

Well, that makes sense. At least it's not film or digital cameras.
>>
>>3910021
basically all the time (except for focus, my eyes can't be trusted), the live preview makes it trivially easy and incredibly accurate compared to DSLR cameras.
I prefer it a lot to automatic or any kind of priority

fuck I haven't touched my X-T3 in one year, I decided to update the firmware and what the fuck there's actually an update and it actually changed things around, I'm not used to camera manufacturers actually supporting their shit.
And they actually updated the autofocus performance on the same level as the X-T4?

tokina announced 2 new primes: ultrawide and standard wide:

https://www.fujirumors.com/new-tokina-lens-roadmap-for-fujifilm-x-ultra-wide-prime-standard-prime-and-56mmf1-4x-coming-this-summer/

And since all of tokina af lenses for fuji are viltrox reskins, viltrox probably has new lenses. Fun fact: viltrox 33 f1.4 is getting a good reputation as astro lens. Pic related was made with it and iOptron SkyTracker Pro (photo not mine).

>Oh shit really?
>That's a gamechanger for fuji.
Depends. If they just relase their aps-c trio it would make best crop system even better, but nothing massive. Fujinon lenses are still the best.

Yeah, but let's look at 50ish mm lenses for fuji x:50 f2, 56 f1.2, viltorx 56 f1.4, samyang 50 f1.2 and countless chinese 50 like ttartisan or kamlan. For 35ish is same thing: 2 fuji lenses, 1 viltorx, 1 samyang and many chinese.

Those two focal lengths are already as competitive as it gets. You could say even this is saturated market. 16 f1.4 is a bit more interesting, but overall I hope that sigma would make new designs for fuji.

My personal biggest shock when becoming more familiar with the Fuji system is how many of their lenses don't have internal focusing. Coming from Sony where all the lenses internally focus, it feels like they're fucking dinosaur technology in comparison. It's actually really shitty.

Currently I have the xf35mmf2 and the xf35mmf1.4 as my only two lenses. I'm definitely keeping the f1.4, is the WR enough of a reason to keep both? I would go with a one lens setup with the f1.4 otherwise, but since I already have both currently I'm wondering if I might as well keep the f2

- the official saying is, both companies use the same third-party lens-designer as base
- the glas/coating used could still be different
- Tokina has an official X-mount license.. e.g. allowing them firmware update via the mount (no need for USB-port) - but maybe also making use of the lens modulation optimizer
- Quality-control, service/support could differ

so I have an update to my camera saga (>>3906875)

I got in an XF 18mm f/2 that I bought online. it seems that the issue with the camera not being able to focus was definitely caused by the 28mm f/2.8 kit lens, because the camera can focus the 18mm without issue. so the camera still has the issue with the front command dial, but that doesn't matter much since I can at least use the fucking camera now until B&H gets more in stock and ships me a replacement.
here are some test snapshits. pleasing colors on these jpegs. kind of annoying that I can't use the raws with capture one pro because I have 20 and they don't have support for this camera included, so I'd have to spend hundos on their latest version to get support. stupid software companies.

You ask me "How do I know that you never had viltrox lens in hands?"

For being no name ling ling without much of a history, viltrox lenses are really good. For example lenstip.com described 85 f1.8 as pretty much equal to sony 85 f1.8

I actually did have the 33mm f1.4 when it came out?
The lettering looks bad, the metal feels like chink metal (odd shiny look), it had purple color cast, the aperture ring is terrible, feedback is bad and doesn't compare to Fuji's primes aperture, the lens cap also feels cheap.

I want to save up some money to buy a GFX 50R (and most likely add some lens), and before I decide I'd love some owner's opinions.
I own a Nikon D700 which is very much loved but in my current life situation, I can't bring it with me with ease, and bringing a camera with me often is how I achieve the most productivity and my best pictures.

I also have a Pentax 645 but at the moment I have no possibility to build my own darkroom, and I don't live in a city where I can exactly "rent" a darkroom for a few hours per week. I have had bad experience sending rolls to companies and I'd like to avoid that in the future.

I'm a hobbyist, leaning more on landscape, portraits and "catching the right moment" than studio. I'm not into modern geartalk and only recently learned what e.g. IBIS is, but I understand basic camera and image quality (thanks dad). I feel and probably am quite oldschool, but now I desperately want to know if the Fujifilm GFX 50r could be it for me. The reasons I want it are: medium format, a relatively small weight for what it does, and price.

My dad collects a massive amount of old russian cameras and lenses, I have a mix of 100% manual russian lenses, some Pentax and a trusty AF Nikkor 50 mm 1.8. How can I know if some of these can be adapted to the GFX 50R? I understand that I'm supposed to get lenses that match the camera in quality (I will!), but for ten years I barely could afford to eat lunch and so have relied on dad, broken-then-fixed lenses and hand-me-downs. For nostalgic and attachment reasons, I'd be so happy if some of these lenses could work, especially my beloved manual Soviet Jupiter 37A 135 mm 3.5.

In general I feel it is like this:
If you are a hobbyist, get a great full frame camera and top of the line lenses. (or if you have a lot of money)

If you will get paid for your photos, get a Fuji GFX camera
>>
>>3915032
thats right
>>
>>3914978
There are a lot of other cameras that do as good enough job as a 50r, or that aren't this slow, but it seems to go well with the type of shooting you do.

I own and i don't think i'll be getting rid of it anytime soon, pretty great camera altogether and the native lenses are superb. About adapting lenses and knowing which will cover the sensor:

Any medium format film lens will cover the sensor, because they are made for a bigger film size than what this sensor would be, regarding 35mm (full frame lenses), it depends, but it's pretty safe to say if they don't have much vignetting if any, they'll cover the sensor all right, you can also search on Google for somebody that has tried that lens combo before, i use a couple of Minolta lenses, and they cover it well enough, until you get the money for native lenses, it'll be good enough in some cases. At worst, you set the camera to "crop mode" and it will simulate a Full frame sensor with 35mp, which is more than plenty.

Any other questions just ask.

There aren't really compelling reasons to go digital "medium format" when there are high resolution full frame cameras available that come very close in resolution. The Nikon Z 7II and Canon EOS R5 come close to 50MP, and the Sony a7r iv exceeds it. These systems have the benefit of faster lenses available than medium format systems and they will adapt your old full frame lenses seamlessly. They will also have significantly better AF and overall processing speed than the slow GFX 50R. Admittedly they don't look as cool as the GFX 50R, but that's really the only benefit you are getting from that system.

Why would you spend premium money on high resolution camera, when you can spend same premium money on larger sensor high resolution camera? Face it full frame is crop now. 25mp still makes sense. High resolution is only viable with sensor shift modes for studio work.

A7rIV isn't sharper than a GFX with a similar lens. Pixel size also matters.

Is it pointlessly more sharp? Perhaps

Never change.

I didn't make a claim -- I just asked a question
>>
The lower the res the better, no need to worry about pesky details.
>>
>>3915408
The point of a high res camera is to:
-crop
-print massively big
-have a very crispy looking image with well defined details for personal amusement.
>>
Why have hipsters and AIDS patients made X Pro 1s go up in price suddenly?
>>
>>3915365
While not bad, Sepia just has a cheap filter tone that it's kinda ugh, works better if you do your own sepia on Lightroom.
>>
>>3915414
>-have a very crispy looking image with well defined details for personal amusement.
Really just the parts about cropping and printing massively matter -- and while I agree -- I think for most people it's overkill.

I would like to own this type of camera but for me it might be in five years. *shrug*
>>
>>3915455
It will still look great in 5 years (;
>>
>>3915492
True, but the prices will go down significantly either for that same five year old piece of gear or be significantly lower for the new model.

The GFX 100 2nd gen. camera is $6000 down from $10000
>>
Thoughts on getting an X-pro 1? I have an X100V at the moment but want to get into the Fuji system more. Is it worth it?
>>
>>3915497
your x100v is going to be like a racecar compared to the x-pro1 which will feel like a slow car in comparison. you're better off getting an x-pro3.
>>
>>3915495
Medium format cameras tend to have a less steep depreciating curve but i think a Gfx 50r will cost about 1800-2000 by 2026
>>
>>3915498
Slow cars are usually more comfortable than fast cars, poor example from your part.

so im just into photography and not video

should i get XE4 or the other models like XT4 or X Pro 3

ive rented the XT4 and X Pro 3 before and both take amazing photos but both are 2k with a lense. I don't need the the rangefinder style or the video the XT4 can take. So would the XE4 be a good optional and does it take the same photos? what are the pros and cons of buying it over the other models?
>>
>>3915521
>so im just into photography
Older bodies do just fine, in fact if you are going to spend money above the 1k mark i would recommend older full frame cameras unless you plan to move into video sooner or later.
If not then go for Nikon from 2011 to 2017 or Canon's 5D series, maybe even a Sony Alpha 7 (IIR or III/R), you are going to save serious money there and with results virtually the same if you use RAW or a good JPG workflow. If you REALLY are going to shoot only photography you might as well use Pentax, the K1 and K3 are great stuff for the money involved but their true power comes in the RAW files which are among the best in the business.
If you are going to step into video occasionally then Zikon or Sony Alpha 7 III (SII if you have ND filters), i would say Canon but so far they are still expensive (Z6 vs. R6 prices are a thousand dollar difference for roughly the same performance) then things get a bit more complicated if you are going to do video a lot later on, there it depends on doing normal video or RAW stuff.

>/fag/ thread
Fuck i realized that until later, apologies, in that case XS10 is pretty damn good and you can even get away with a XPro 1 but the 2 is much nicer to use. Photo technology hasn't changed that much in the last 5 years other than locked functions in newer cameras.
If you are looking at a XE then you are probably looking at portability, in that range i do not know the differences but the XE4 easily battles against the Ricoh GR in the JPG range, in RAW the GR has the advantage of having the same sensors as the Pentax line.

i love the fuji film simulations though like really really love. i'm most comfortable (digitally) with fuji cameras. But thank you for the lengthy reply im going to check out some of those other cameras and see what i can do.
>>
>>3915521
don't get the XE4. it gives you literally zero improvements over the XE3 and fucks up your ergonomics. not worth the price.
the XPro3 is just overpriced, so stay away from that too. and if it comes down to the XE3 and XT4, it's really just a matter of size and whether or not you need the XT4's IBIS.

I think you could get great results sooc. I've found that adjusting the exposure comp affects the contrast.
From top left clockwise its lightrooms auto setting with the natural preset, sooc jpg, b/w landscape preset, and b/w sepia. Sure, with some editing I could get there but why would I.

Used X-Pro2 prices are picking up slightly vs. last year (~1.4X).
It's becoming a seller's market, kind of.
>>3915497
I wouldn't get it for more than $400 USD, which was the used price four years ago.
Even then, "worth" needs more parameters to define. - preferred form-factor, body size, video 'features', focal lengths, etc.
The X100V is not appealing to me due to the small size and fixed lens, but these are perfect for other people. Is there anything the X100V isn't doing for you? If you suspect something is going on, like "oh, I wish I could shoot video with a telephoto, ~200-600mm, but this X100V can't do that, even with the focal length modifiers" or things like that, maybe consider renting equipment to try out for a little while.

I have been paid for photos before, when I was at my most productive. That was some years ago. Then I was a bit ashamed that I couldn't deliver better quality/detail because I was too poor to get a medium format. I'd like to be a bit proactive now and hence my interest in the GFX 50R.

>>3915223
Some great tips! Would you mind telling me how you feel about the weight and portability of the GFX 50R?

nice to see but i'll wait and see what happens with lenses.
sony is essentially done finishing their e-mount lens portfolio, and canon is just rounding out niche rf-mount lenses like tilt shift.
nikon has lots of work yet to finish, so i can't see them giving much attention to cheapie aps-c lenses.

Oh nice... I'll probably pick one of those up

>Some great tips! Would you mind telling me how you feel about the weight and portability of the GFX 50R?

With the 50mm it's not too much of a burden, fits on a small 5l bag a bit tightly but it fits, a bit wieldy, with a heavier and bigger lens you definitely need a bag, the 32-64 makes me have to use a dedicated camera bag, and 5pounds of camera strains the wrist a bit.

I see, thanks. I usually plop on the 50 mm by default and put a spare lens in a backpack. Feels like it should work just fine.

It's a really great lens, specially for it's price, works for almost everything and it's tack sharp!

Viltrox 23/1.4, XF23/2, or XF23/1.4?
I originally really wanted the Fuji 1.4 because I was sick of not having enough fast lenses for dark scenes and the rendering looked great. The Viltrox is sharper and cheap as fuck, but subjectively the images look a little flat. I’ve also heard autofocus has issues. The f/2 would be nice for the WR and for bag of primes-ing it with my 35/2 and 16/2.8. Which do I get?
