Loving my X100V
snap from last night:
Porsche Panamera Turbo (with bugs on bumper), 5:24 PM, 02 March 2020. Fuji X100V, 50mm digital televconverter mode, flash ON, f/3.2 at 1/125 at Auto ISO 320 (LV 8.0), 200% Auto Dynamic Range, Perfectly Clear. bigger or camera-original © 5.8 MB LARGE NORMAL JPG file.
the digital teleconverter works great; just turn the lens ring and voilà!, you can get 50mm and 70mm equivalent lenses. in this case i used the 50mm equivalent digitally converted lens.
i love the fill flash! this is shooting into the sun for atmospheric lighting effect, and without the fill flash the car would just be a shadow.
YES! My Fujifilm X100V has fantastic fill-flash performance with its built-in flash. In this case the light looks perfect (without flash Sofie's face would have been in compete shadow with no catchlight in her eye), and the ultrafast sync speed of the X100V亲友益阳棋牌歪's leaf shutter let the camera shoot at 1/550 with ease — something no interchangeable lens digital camera can do.

This is a $300 more expensive version of the LEICA SUMMMILUX-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH. This new limited-to-500 version uses illegible gray paint where the normal lens uses proper orange markings; another trinket for the LEICAMAN.

Fuji X100V: MADE IN JAPAN. bigger.
MADE IN JAPAN: Fujifilm X100V.
亲友益阳棋牌歪hallelujah! it's made with pride domestically.
SMART: Nikon D780.
More good news: My D780 fully saves and recalls all camera settings to and from a memory card, and these files can be saved and shared on your computer and I share mine online. Better than mirrorless rubbish like the defective Nikon Z6, Z7 and Sony A7R Mk IV, the D780 recalls all the contents your U1 and U2 modes.
YES!!! Not everything is circling the big brown drain like the mirrorless Z6, Z7 and Sony A7R Mk IV, all of which erase亲友益阳棋牌歪 the contents of their memory modes when you recall from a card, making this feature nearly useless in those half-finished mirrorless fiascoes!
UPDATED: Do You Need 2 Cards?
i just updated it.
Just in from my X100V:
Sun and Clouds, 8:52 AM, 28 February 2020. Fuji X100V at f/14 at 1/5,800 at Auto ISO 640 with -1⅓ stops exposure compensation (LV 17.5), 400% Dynamic Range, Perfectly Clear. bigger or camera-original © 6.7 MB JPG file.

20 February 2020, Thursday (2/20/2020)
Z Firmware Flaw
Oh well. I put the in my Nikon Z7亲友益阳棋牌歪, and its autofocus system in Auto-Area AF still has the same flaw where it ignores a closer subject in the middle of the frame if it's already focused on something in the background.
this flaw drives me up the wall; when i have a closer subject which my z7 is ignoring i have to turn the manual focus ring or otherwise get the focus about right on my subject, and only then will the af system bring it in to perfect focus. otherwise it's so dumb that it simply auto-deselects the af areas that represent the correct subject in the middle of the frame and stays hell-bent on the wrong ones focussed on the background!
I haven't tried it on a group to see if Nikon's fixed the fatal flaw where the face ID system isn't smart enough to focus on the most important face as my iPhone and X100F亲友益阳棋牌歪 and every other camera does perfectly.
Good news is my Fringer Canon to Nikon AF, IS & VR adapter continues to work great. No, it doesn't fix the problems basic to the Z AF system, but it does make all my classic & current Canon lenses work better than my classic Nikon lenses do on the FTZ!

NEW: Nikon D6 Review.
I'm not going to say how amused I am that for about the past ten years or more that Nikon's newest top pro camera always duplicates the frame rate of Canon's previous pro camera. With the D6, Nikon finally catches up to Canon's outgoing 1DX Mk II. If you want the 16 FPS of the new 1DX III亲友益阳棋牌歪 you'll have to wait for Nikon's D7 expected in 2024.
Frame rate is everything亲友益阳棋牌歪 for pro news and sports cameras.
Other than my initial mirth at Nikon exactly meeting my expectations of finally having something competitive to Canon's old 1DX Mk II亲友益阳棋牌歪, if you're a Nikon pro I'm sure you already have . I know I'm as soon as I'm done writing it up here.

NEW: More Nikon D780 Sample Images from the past couple of days.
Did you know the FTZ doesn't work properly with three out of these four lenses? It only autofocuses with one of the lenses, and only records or knows set aperture with two of these lenses. Even if I set my Z7's Non-CPU Lens Data, my Z7 still doesn't record the focal length or shooting aperture in its EXIF data, as my D780亲友益阳棋牌歪 does flawlessly.
I'm loving my D780 and its always flawless color; these are exactly the colors that come right out of my D780 as deliverable JPGs, no editing, no RAW files or other dilly-dallying to get between delivering my images and getting on to the next job:

you need to have it on order now if you want to get it when it first comes out.
It was the original X100 which was such a hot product back in 2010 that no one could get it — yet I had mine — so when someone in public asked me "hey, how'd you get your X100 so fast" inspired me to write How to Get It.

I updated the graphics to higher resolution and page size, and updated the historical price information. I hadn't realized that the used resale price has doubled since I got mine in 2013. As I foretold, the best 35mm cameras only go up in value.

UPDATED: Nikon 70-200/2.8 FL Price History.
While updating my Nikon 70-200/2.8 Price History I noticed that the price has dropped $650 from two weeks ago when I last checked the price. Nikon jacked-up the 70-200/2.8 FL price when the 70-200/2.8 Z came out to make the Z lens look like less of a rip-off. The Z lens is still , , and . Sneaky, but not sneaky enough now that I publish permanent records of pricing.

Try one, of anything, for 30 days, worry free!
What makes me laugh is that everything you get from , or comes with a great worry-free, no-backtalk trial period. If you don't love it, send it back for a full cash refund with no dirty looks within 30 days.
This is why I've used and since the 1970s: because although it was only 7 days back then, there's no way you can tell how much you like or dislike something until you try it in your own environment with your own other gear. This is one of the many reasons I haven't bought at retail for over 40 years.
If 30 days isn't enough, everything you get at has a sixty-day full money-back return period!
unless you're silly enough to buy at retail, get yours at , , or and you never have to worry about reading reviews or wondering how well it will work — for you. order, try it yourself, and be happy!

did you know that my reviews track new and used prices ever since a camera was first introduced?
In this case, the Z7's current and past prices亲友益阳棋牌歪, as well as its accessories, change price about once a month?
I record these in perfect detail for every camera I've reviewed. For instance, here's the D850's price for the past 2½ years.
Just look under "Price" under "Specifications" and I log it all for you to see in each review.
I update these when I go back into each review over time, but especially for a hot camera like the Z7 I'm in there adding more and updating all the time — like the new section on the Z7's video performance亲友益阳棋牌歪 I just added today.
camera makers don't want you to have this power, but it lets us know when a deal is a deal.
one of the many reasons prices fluctuate, in addition to the always welcome price erosion as the months and years move on, is the yen/dollar exchange rate. this always goes up and down, and camera prices follow suit as our money flows back to japan.
