  1. Not tried it, might have a look today. Unless there is some setting I'm unaware of, it doesn't do anything when you enable F-Log. Definitely dual level.
  2. The shutter is the best thing about the camera - honestly. You need only the slightest half press to focus and little bit more to trip the shutter. Despite this, it is easy to apply the right pressure for the right task. And it is sooooooooooooo quiet.
  3. No worries. A couple of other random points: 1. It is a complex and highly customisable camera. I was expecting just to dial in my Xpro2 settings and be away but there were several things I needed to look up in the manual and try out numerous times before I really understood how they worked. On the one hand that's great because you can probably set it up just how you like it - on the other hand you really need to spend some time with it before you head out. 2. Eterna is lovely, I'm looking forward to creating some presets with it as a base. It's Classic Chrome with the low-con l
  4. I'm not really a touch screen guy because I have fat fingers! The silent camera controls are ok, but as someone else mentioned, once you have selected an option it closes the whole menu rather than returning you one back which could be annoying. Touch focus is really nice. Its very versatile and you can set it up in multiple different ways - you can disable AF on the shutter button so it acts as a true START RECORD button for instance. I haven't tried it on moving objects or with continuous autofocus yet. The camera feels good in the hand but very unlike every other Fuji camera. Its
  5. Natural Live View is a bit confusing. It seems to make the image viewed (but not recorded) lower contrast for ease of viewing. According to the manual it removes the Film Simulation preview, but B+W simulations remain B+W. It has no effect at all when you enable F-Log. It's a dual level indicator. EDIT: just realised I didn't see your first question. Yes it can, but it works best on clearly defined objects not at close focus or infinity. The smoothness is also largely determined by your lens choice. There is a setting which I've not played with which allows you to change the camera's
  6. Not sure exactly what you mean by the jerky thing. It is really really good if you are trying to hold an image still, you can easily make a usable shot with the 56mm. If you are panning with it on you'll get the floaty floaty floaty move thing you get with all stabilisers - lens and body based. It's good. It is generally better at side to side rather than back to front tracking and it likes simple scenes and lots of light - but it works. S Priority is pretty smooth. Auto ISO is ok but not spectacular. A priority is noticeably jerky. No, once its acquired focus it tends to sta
  7. Torteloni with sausage. Had the pineapple while waiting. And now to a productive afternoon fiddling around with a camera!
  8. Something light - probably tagliatelle. There might be some pineapple for dessert. Jesus, I have to get on!
  9. Mine arrived this morning. I've got some work to do now but I'll be playing with this after lunch if you have any questions.
  10. The vertical stripes? No, I've never seen that. The Fuji cameras will produce a pink/purple flare if you jam a light right down the lens but you really have to force it. I can remember it annoying me once but otherwise its not a problem - sometimes I use it for creative effect.
  11. No, it seemed very similar to but a bit faster than my Xpro2 but I was in a camera store, not doing my thing in a theatre so it was not possible to draw a firm conclusion.
  12. Could have done if I wanted but I wasn’t bothered. I didn’t try any slowmo so can’t help you with that, sorry.
  13. I bought one, it will replace one Xpro2. I dunno exactly how long. I was in the store for like 20 mins - did you want to know something specific? Yep, seemed good. Like all Fuji’s you have to change the size of the AF box to get the best results for each scene.
  14. Love you too sugar! The AF was very quick, responsive and smooth. But I was shooting mainly static things in a camera store not ballerinas so this wasn’t an exhaustive test. Im in Manchester.
