Fuji X-Pro2 — More Strange Problems: AF Points On JPEG, Freezing, Fluorescent Lighting …

So today was the day that Fuji made available the 1st Firmware Update to the X-Pro2 — released just 3 weeks ago.

And I keep on seeing these Forum posts about obscure issues. Yes, I fully understand and appreciate that if you have enough monkeys typing you will eventually get all of Wikipedia written BUT I also believe that there has to be even a small fire if there are so many reports of credible smoke. A few people have claimed that the X-Pro2 freezes (and we are NOT talking about using it in cold weather). That scares me.

To be fair I CANNOT, for the world of me, see the AF Grid Points in the purported image. Others say they can and even have explanations. That scares me.

The whole Fuji X-Pro2 roll out has made me nervous since I WANT to buy the X-T2 as soon as it becomes available. Yes, some of the X-Pro2 fixes will already, I hope, be in the X-T2 Firmware BUT Fuji’s credibility is a bit shot.

Lake Winnipesaukee, NH 2016: No Ice-In Does Not Mean Ice-Out Will Be Early.

by Anura Guruge

So this will be the 4th time since they started keeping records some 170 years ago that Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire — our BIG Lake — has not fully frozen over. The prior three winters having been: 1998 – 1999, 2000 – 2001 & 2014 – 2015. So those are the so called “no ice-in” years.

But as my ice-out Excel spreadsheet shows no ice-in doesn’t mean that we by rote will get an early ice-out. Yes, we did have an relatively early ice-out the first time we experienced a no ice-in, i.e., 1998 – 1999. But it had been even earlier the year before. But the other two were ABOVE average — the average being 109 days into the year, April 20 IF it is not a leap-year and April 19 IF it is (as is this year).

So just a heads up.

Lake Winnipesaukee, NH 2016: V. Unlikely To Freeze Over Now; Will Be 4th Time In 170 Years.

Screen grab of Weirs Bay, from the “Weirs Cam” at “winnipesaukee.com”, this afternoon. Temperature reading 48F! Click to ENLARGE and admire here. From: winnipesaukee.com.


I went running, with the dogs, up “Prospect Mountain Road” (as is my wont) this morning. It was 47°F. Wow. It was like Spring and yes, the road was muddy as it could be. The dogs came back soaked and muddy.

Lot of warm rain yesterday too. Yes going forward only next Wednesday will see highs above freezing BUT the damage has been done. Biggest factor now is that the Sun is higher in the sky and we have more daylight. That makes a big difference.

Though I could (of course) be wrong, and I appreciate that a lot of people would hope I am wrong, I think this will be the 4th year, since they started maintaining records around 170 years ago, that we at Lake Winnipesaukee will not get a complete ice-in.

So the 4 non-ice in years have been: 1998-1999, 2000-2001, 2013-2014 & 2015-2016. So all 4 have occurred within the last 18 years — and I have been up here, in and around the Lake to see all 4. NO I do not see this as proof of Global Warming. Last winter was COLD enough to dispel that.

I will, of course, keep you posted. I need to get out and get some pictures of the Lake.

How anybody who lives in New Hampshire, and is not a total couch potato who never ventures out, can still believe in Global ‘bloody’ Warming defeats me.

It has been BLOODY cold in New Hampshire for the last 2 days — and those that know me, and know that I will still go running in 5°F weather, will know that IF I complain of it being cold, it is pretty serious.

This, my friend, is NOT right and there is no damn, frigging Global Warming in sight — at least not in frigid New Hampshire. I would LOVE some Global bloody Warming. I need to renew and top up my tan. Relying just on tanning creams becomes and expensive and messy hobby.

Yes, of course, we have seen Climate Change BUT that is because the DISTANCE of the Earth’s orbit, from the Sun, has changed! You did NOT know that did you? Most people don’t. Why, the Earth is getting lighter despite the increase in obese folks, worldwide. Yes, I need to write about this in detail — but I don’t have the time. It is the Earth’s weight, of MASS if you want to be pedantic and scientific, that is changing. Greenhouse Effect is NOTHING. It is the distance from the Sun that counts. Remember I do know my astronomy

Check these out. It is June 2nd and I am forced to wear sweats — though sweating is the last thing that is happening around here.

Can you tell the difference?

Global Warming my frozen bloody foot!

Try Global Freezing — that is closer to the mark.

Ijuts, and ijuts all.


Yes, it is Teischan’s birthday.

Low key affair this year. Some ‘behavioral’ issues!
But it was still fun & good.
