    Hi dan, I really enjoyed the work you do and learning alot from your tips. I am still learning and is awesome to follow your work. Such an inspiration and motivation for me as I have started my outdoor business venture in Fiji island Oceania. If you ever visit Fiji in the future feel free to contact me on my email address. Hope one day I could attend on one of your workshops and be a part of a workshop adventure. Thanks ray.

    It would be helpful to someone considering buying your ebook if there was some way to look at a couple of sample pages.

    Whether I can get any benefit from technical writing depends on the writing style and the quality of the illustrations, both of which can best be determined by flipping through a few pages. Thanks, -gw

    Hi Brendan, Here is the link to my blog post where I cover the film simulations. It includes the embedded YouTube video lesson I recently did about this topic:

    Hi Dan. Would you know if the 18-135 mm is suitable to use on Fuji XT30 camera. I have the 18-55 mm kit lens but wanted a longer zoom lens. Just a bit worried it may be too hefty for the smaller camera. I’m happy to use my left hand for extra support for the camera/lens combo anyway. Thanks in advance for your thoughts about it.

  • Dan says:

    Hi Ken, yes the 18-135 is definitely usable on the X-T30. Sure, it’s a little bit bigger and heavier, but as you said, you’d be using your left hand to support the lens, so I don’t see the extra size as an issue for the versatility you can get from that lens.

    Am enjoying your books! Do you know where I obtain your helpful info in smaller format (cheat sheets) for my xt2 and xe3 when I am hiking? Thanks

  • Dan says:

    Hi Darrel, thanks for your comment. I don’t currently have a smaller cheat sheet for the X Series, but perhaps this is something I could create. What sort of info would you like to see on a sheet like this?

    I was interested in your review of the BenQ SW271 a couple of years back. How have you found the screen surface over time? My experience of matt display screens is that it is very hard to clean off any smudges or specks that build up over time. I currently have an AIO with touchscreen that is reflective so I have to control lighting carefully. But it is easy to keep clean.

  • Dan says:

    Having use the SW-271 for a few years now, I’m still quite impressed with it’s quality, and I do find it relatively easy to keep clean. I’m pretty good about not touching the screen with my fingers, so I don’t have too many smudges on the panel, and a dry cloth is all I need to wipe away the dust. Looking closely, I’ve got a few specks on there, but it’s been awhile since I gave it a good wipe. And considering how much use the screen gets, they’re not very noticeable.

    I am interested in your “X series unlimited” ebook, what is the format, and can I buy or convert the format to “.pdf” to be use on my laptop or desktop ?

  • Dan says:

    Luc, thanks for your interest in my Fuji guide. My X Series Unlimited ebook is a PDF file, and it can be viewed on any computer and nearly any kind of mobile device.

    Hi Dan. I’m halfway through reading your excellent book, Fujifilm X Series Unlimited. I bought my fist Fuji a year ago, the X100F; your book, however, has recently altered my thinking to shooting more in the JPG/film sim mode! Question: Even though post work on JPGs should be limited, which software is best to tweak Fuji JPGs? And should the edits be confined one save? (to prevent data loss) And do you recommend Luminar for Fuji RAWs and JPGs? (I’m using ACR CS5).
    Thanks, Murray

  • Daniel Whitmore says:

    Hi Dan – I purchased a copy of your October 2018 revision of X Series Unlimited last year. Can I get an upgrade to the latest version of the book?

  • Dan says:

    Email sent.

    Hi Murray, thanks for your feedback, I’m glad you’re enjoying my X Series eBook. I do like using Luminar, I think it’s a great program that fosters some really fun creativity, no matter if you’re processing JPEG images or RAW, and the quality is very good, even with Fuji images. Adobe ACR has seen improvements, and the current versions of PS and LR do a better job with the Fuji RAW files than they used to. Overall, I’ve been pretty happy with Luminar. It’s worth a try to see if you like it.

    Regarding post and saving: Many programs do non-destructive editing, Luminar included, so there’s no need to worry about quality loss if you’re editing and saving multiple times. The only time this is an issue with JPEGs is if you saved JPEG, then resaved that JPEG, then resaved that one as well, and so forth. If you’re always working and saving from your original file, then there’s no quality loss to be concerned about. And you’d be surprised at how much processing you can do with some JPEGs and still end up with great looking files. Due to the way that sensors record data, you’ll see more quality loss and introduced noise with darker images than with brighter images.
