    Fantastic Bernie. Love the cloud formation and the way it leads the eye into and through the image. Great clarity.

    The people on the bottom of scene really give this a great sense of scale Bernie. Nice one.

    The people, the cloud, the ship and the showers make this shot work.

    I imagine the green line is a camera feature. :)

    Bernie,

    Which page of the book is that on, please? I have been searching for the technique. It would be essential for studio flash shooting with a broad and a bike.

    Cheers,

    P 43 - just a press of the command dial to magnify and rotate command dial to zoom in or out. Can also scroll to other areas of the frame by using the AF button in combination with the selector.

    Well, it gets better and better!

    A very useful feature I found (which is at the core of what I was in quest of) is to be in Manual focus mode and then to press the AE-L/AF-L button. It will automatically focus and then that focus point stays until you change it. Not much use for those using non-Fuji lenses with an adaptor, but perfect for me. It will be my standard modus operandi.

    In similar fashion I have used a dedicated button on the Canon to focus for years so that the shutter release just does as its name suggests.

    Cheers,
    Walter Glover

    Agree it just keeps getting better.........

    ........ Set front of camera to "M", press command dial for enlarged focus point, rotate command dial for 2 different enlarged manual focus points, 1/2 press shutter compose pix, fire away.......

    Now that is very handy and something I missed in the manual. Happy days!

    Perhaps we should have a dedicated X E1 hints and tips thread :roll:
