The Fuji Camera Thread!

Recommended Posts

Petesie

I've started this thread as I've been a fan of Fuji for some years now as I'm sure a few of you have! My first Fuji was a wee X10, deviated to a Sony RX100 then moved onto the X100f; finally after a swift visit to Big Camera today I now have the X-T4! :wink:

Big Camera's prices are similar to Jessops with the same sort of deals, they are very helpful and will assist in the initial set up.

Another popular model in their line up is the recent uplift to the X100 series, the Fujifilm X100V. :)

I met a great chap in Big Camera and we had a good old natter about the X100f, he'd brought his in for a service. He showed me some outstanding photos he'd taken on his travels, a street photography guy which the X100 series is perfect for; you can now pick up an earlier model at a very good price.

I chose the 16 - 80mm F4 as my X-T4's bundle lens; it got great reviews and the one today already had the recent software upgrade...or so they said. It had 1.02, now up to 1.04 so I'll do that later as I'd already downloaded it just to be sure. :wink:

I've just joined the club Pete after 18 years with Nikon DSLR's (Last being a D810), I've just bought an X-T3 with the the 16-80 f4 lens as well. I went with the XT-3 rather than the 4 as I shoot virtually exclusive still photography and will only using lenses with Image stabilisation built in so there was just no need to get the latest for me. Oh and Fuji dropped the price by £450 so that helped as well :)

We will have to compare notes when I come to Pattaya, I popped out to Whitby in the UK on the first day I had the camera, I think it is going to suit me well.

Can I ask to which Big camera shop you have been ?

I went this morning to the one in T-21 and I did not leave as their happiest customer (i.e. will not come back).

Aye lad. :wink:

Great pics.

I had intended to go for the X-T3 until I found out that the 4 had been released.

My last Nikon was a Df, I finally reached the full frame and realised I wasn't that keen on the camera, wasn't ready to sink any more dosh into their lenses either. Kept it for 18 months then swapped it for an Omega Seamaster. I have an older D300s sat on a shelf in Ireland too, still have a couple of lenses so may convert that into infra red. I was however keen on the 10-24 lens, enjoyed using that on my D300s.

As the fella was doing my paperwork today I noticed the Fuji 10 - 24 on the shelf...:huh:

I always use the one in Central Festival, they've always been very helpful & I've previously bought a few things from them. :wink:

I usually do my homework prior to a visit, general price of what I want to buy in UK & US, price & offers on Big Camera website & check out the latest You Tube reviews, I also check DP Review website for the ratings and review.

Stokielad mentioned earlier that he got a great deal on the X-T3; I very nearly pulled the trigger on that too but the Covid restrictions meant there was no way I could get my digits actually on one as the shops were closed...so I hung on. Further research made me aware of a few important aspects of my next impending purchase.

  • Value - I'd already set aside the money to buy the X-T3, recent price drops meant for the same sum I could get the newer model, used X-T3 prices did not tumble so there was no point in going down that route.
  • Latest Model - You get all the benefits of the upgraded variant, you also retain a strong used value should you wish to move it on.

Great deals can now be had on the earlier X-T2 which is a fabulous camera with great specifications. :wink:

I was using Canon 5D2 with 24-70/2.8 for many years, a good combination, but very heavy and, for people photography, rather intimidating due to its size. I bought a X100s in 2013 as a back up and rapidly found I was using that a lot more then my Canon.

now got the X100f, great camera as well as an XE3, with a range of lenses, although I usually carry both with a 50/2.0 on the XE3, a great combination.

welcome to the club!

A few pics I've found I took around town on my first day my X100f. :wink:

I did get one of the original X-T10 models when they were first released, awesome retro stying and great pics...shelf life wasn't great though & reliability issues started to creep in.

The Fuji X-T30 however gets rave reviews & is very affordable...I have a few friends who own one and swear by it.

Great thread. If the X-A7 is anything like the X-A5 it's going to be a good value although the 15-45mm power zoom lens that comes in a kit leaves a lot to be desired. And apparently the X-A7 can be used as a webcam per some new software that Fujifilm has just released.

To me the X-T30 doesn't bring enough benefits to the proposition to put it ahead of the X-T20 which is an amazing little camera. Yes, the 30 has better focus tracking and a slightly larger sensor, but for still scenes the 20 is just as good. Also the 30 doesn't have the configurable D-pad of the 20 which makes so many settings quickly available instead of going through menus.
