Gear Talk Detox with These Fujifilm Images Roundup

Gear Talk Detox

Talking gear is nice and good, but using our gear is even more amazing ;).

I did try to remind this to myself, and hence, in the last few weeks, I have grabbed my X-E3 as often as I could and moved my a$$ up to the highest peaks, no matter how the weather was, to try to capture the beauty of my home.

And in fact, the shot I am most proud of lately, happened on such a cloudy day, that I was afraid my 4+ hours hike would be photographically speaking useless.

But despite the thick fog, I snapped my probably favorite image of this fall so far.

So I hope the images below inspire you to get out and shoot, too. The one shot you’ll be so happy with could just be out there, waiting for you.

And it doesn’t really matter, if all images shared down below come from our extremely prolific GFX user group. I just took them from the GFX group, because the last two image roundups all came from our explosive X-T group.

TESTED: Does Fujifilm’s IBIS or OIS Impact Negatively Image Sharpness When Used on Tripod?

Does IBIS or OIS impact negatively on image quality, when working on a tripod?

Let’s see what Fujifilm says:

OIS

IBIS

  • Fujifilm officially says in their X-H1 and GFX100 owner’s manual, you should turn off IBIS when using a tripod

So the conclusions would be:

  • you don’t have to turn OIS off, on the contrary, in some cases it is beneficial to keep it on [NOTE: Here on FujiRumors we still recommend to turn off OIS when you work on a tripod]
  • turn always off IBIS

Well, fellow FR-reader David partially investigated this over at his blog, and here are his findings:

Canon Shooter Tries Fujifilm X-T3 for the First Time: “Intuitive and Inspirational! No Other Digital Camera is so Fun to Use, But…”

Despite the second youth the Fujifilm X-H1 is experiencing due to the massive deals, the Fujifilm X-T3 is and remains the king in the Fujifilm line-up.

As such, we keep up dedicating it roundups here on FujiRumors. So check out the latest one down below.

It Was Inevitable: I am Leaving Lightroom for Capture One Pro

My wife enjoys sunrise high up in the mountains – SAVE 10% on C1 using code OCT-AF-P89 – valid in October only

Leaving Lightroom

It was inevitable, because:

  • I use Lightroom standalone
  • Adobe now offers only subscription model
  • Newer cameras are not supported on LR standalone
  • I don’t want to join a subscription model

So I had to look for alternatives, and although my lovely Fujifilm X-E3 is still supported in Lightroom standalone, I figured out that, since I am going to leave Lightroom anyway at some point, I better do it now.

Luckily we live in times, where there are a lot of valuable alternatives, such as:

And after a summer spent at home hiking my mountains (you can see my wife and me caching sunrise at 8,200 feet here) and editing pictures with a mix of different software, I decided to make Capture One Pro my main software of choice.

I will leave Lightroom, use Capture One Pro 12, but always keep an eye also on Luminar 4, Picktorial and ON1 Photo RAW…. but especially on Luminar 4.

And yes… X-Trans files and Capture One do get along very well :).

The learning curve?

Well, that actually went faster than I’d have expected, as Capture One is just a very good software overall, but there are also lots of quick tip C1 youtube videos you can check out for help.

We have shared Capture One tutorials and quick tips already in past roundups:
