    New member here. Long term photog (40+ years) and dedicated Fujista.

    Started shooting with Tri-X on an Olympus OM-1n, while in college, drifted through Olympus and multiple Nikon digitals, and finally came home to Fuji with a X100s about 7 years ago.

    Since then, a X-Pro1 and a XT-1 have been added to the collection, with the only difficulty being deciding what body to pick up for the particular circumstance.

    Other interests include Formula 1 and the Maker world.

    Looking forward to contributing here. I've got lots of imagery collected in the UK and surrounding areas over the years which I can share.

    I've done a bit of spelunking around the site and cannot figure out how to set an avatar and/or signature. Can someone please provide guidance?

    Hello, I was just searching on the same topic! It looks like there's a 30 post criterion that has to be met before you can add an avatar. I understand that it's to counter spam bots. There's a link to another thread here that explains it.

    Hi and welcome. Indeed Fuji go from strength to strength. I think it is only a matter of time before they build their telephoto range. If the XT-4 lives up to expectation they’ll need something more than the 200 F2 with teleconverters.

    As said above you need something like 30 posts over time and place to prove you are not a robot/spammer.

    Thanks Pete - I'd missed the completion of the place name.

    Thanks for that link Papageno. Makes perfect sense although I've never heard of spam in an avatar.

    Hi Chris,

    Just found out that the avatar link has been enabled for me - hopefully it may now be working for you, too? I definitely haven't written 30 posts yet though, so the limit may have been reduced?

    System (at just before 06:00) shows 4 posts since March 18th - so time element as well, but I am surprised!

    Yep. It let me set an avatar and signature. Awesome

    or maybe a mod just thought that you were too human to be a bot. Welcome aboard.
