A review of the Southwest Fuji Cameras Users Workshop

A quick review of the Southwest Fuji Cameras Users Workshop held on Wednesday 12th July at National Trust property at Dyrham Park just north of Bristol and Bath. 

Just a note to thank you for a most enjoyable workshop yesterday.

 

I very much appreciated the relaxed atmosphere and group-centred approach, and I certainly achieved my main aim of re-familiarising myself with my Fuji after some time away from photography.

The bonus was the venue, Dyrham Park, which I shall certainly visit again.”

A group of six Fuji Camera users meet for the workshop. the basis for the day was a sharing of skills and knowledge from within the group. Much time was spent drinking coffee in the large Tea room and sharing our Fuji experiences. Many had great pictures and a few frustrations.

The complexity of the Fuji XT-2 Auto Focus systems proved to be a challenge. I also learnt that the Continuous focusing was not working on my XT-2 and was only brought back to life with a Factory Reset.

 

I learnt a useful quote on the workshop

“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance”.

Aristotle

I had prepared some starter questions to get the chat and flow of experiences going. After we had been sharing for around two and a half hours, I realised the questions weren’t needed any more.

We had lunch in the Tea Room and then went out to take pictures in the house and park at Dyrham.
