  1. I had to look twice at the first picture to realise that these are real birds and not sculptures; magnificent birds indeed.
  2. Nice B&W
  3. 33 changes in two seperate updates... If properly implemented, no. 19 "Addition of “Eye Sensor + LCD Image Display” in the View Mode" may be very useful and will save power; e.g. picture reviewing and menu operation always on the monitor and the finder only for composing. No 5. "Full-range ISO adjustments with the Command Dial (X-T2 only)" looks useful in combination with heavy, large lenses that need to be supported by the left hand, ISO adjustment with the right hand may then be more convenient.

  5. I find it very easy to create lots of moiré with my D800e, which still has some kind of anti-aliasing filter and has the same resolution and pixel count as the D810. Just make a picture of a LCD television or monitor screen As long as the lens out-resolves the sensor in the visible spectrum and as long as there is no proper low-pass filter, there will be moiré; it is impossible to beat Nyquist-Shannon. A higher pixel density will only shift the problem to smaller structures. Seasoned digital MF photographers should already know this; close down the aperture in order to increase diffraction, effectively creating a low-pass filter.
  6. Just a quick look at some GFX50s raw files shot in an urban environment (Tokyo!) with a lot of regular things immediately revealed two things: the 63mm is fully able to out-resolve the sensor and aliasing artefacts ('moiré') are abundantly visible. Yes, they have copped out.
  7. Very nice shots indeed! #7 is the standout for me.
  8. Nice series on Nuenen Fons!
  9. The wait is now for Apple to fix the root cause of the issue; after one of the "digital camera updates" of last year (just before the latest MacOS came out) MacOS refuses to display thumbnails of lossless compressed X-T2 and X-Pro2 files. Extremely annoying for those who want to use lossless compressed on these cameras.
  10. This update also fixes the "import window does not show thumnails" of lossless compressed Fujifilm 24MP (X-Pro2, X-T2, ...) files.
  11. Thank you all for commenting!
  12. Let's hope there will be a full Iridient Developer for Windows in the future too. It is packed with interesting features like monochrome raw conversion. It is relatively slow, but the results are worth the 'wait'. For my Fuji files (X-Pro2 and X-T2) I fully switched to Iridient for raw processing, and do further processing in Photoshop. Today it was a no-brainer to get a license for X-Transformer for MacOS. The license fee is modest indeed. My iMac has a 5K screen, very very nice for viewing pictures.
  13. Cold, cloudy, rainy, perfect conditions for a brisk walk over the dike. Somewhere along the Dutch coast. X-Pro2 with XF50mmF2 WR.
  14. Today Iridient released X-Transformer 1.0 beta 3, now both for Windows and MacOS. Also, the latest version of Iridient Developer (3.1.4, MacOS only) now supports GFX50s raw files.
  15. Another very nice app for identifying objects in the sky is Planets by Dana Peters, it is available for free for both iOS and Android. Just point your phone or tablet to the part of the sky you wat to explore, easy and simple.
