    Fuji vs Canon Rear LCD Quality

    Interestingly the lcd has a pixel density of 290ppi. So it falls in line with what apple claimed to be the resolution you needed for small devices you hold close to your face. Personally I don't hold my lcd that close to my face, if I do, I use the evf instead. It has a higher pixel density than most notebooks that you use at arm length. So, while more is always better, I think part of it is a psychological problem. Small numbers just can't be good can they? Personally I think screens like the one from the D500 or the new Z series are great, but I see very little difference. I feel like brightness and contrast are more important since the camera is often used under bright sun.

    EOSHD Opinion - The Sony A6400 is an absolute turkey

    that's true, but you said only AF-S and no AF-C. Django corrected this, since the X-T3 has AF-C and face-detection with eye tracking.

    EOSHD Opinion - The Sony A6400 is an absolute turkey

    Take a look at the thumbnail/preview picture of the first video. He is using the 18-135mm lens but the display shows f/1.8 So it‘s clearly edited, either by him or Sony marketing. Doesn‘t change the rs though xD

    Sony A6400

    Here in Europe the A6400 will be introduced for 1050€. You can easily get a new A6500 for around 1000€. So while the A6400 is intended to replace the A6300, it‘s competing in price with more powerful cameras. Because the sensor speed is the limiting factor. As @androidlad said, it looks like it‘s the same A6300 sensor

    Sony A6400

    The real question is, why would you buy this camera, when you can get an a6500 for less money?

    Sony A6400

    I just saw one of the vlogging videos which it seems Sony aimed the camera at. When he moved the camera the rolling shutter was insane. So I guess no or little improvement there. But I don‘t think the camera is aimed at anyone who would come to this forum but the firmware updates do look interesting!

    ND filter, Issue or not

    yes, it's normals as in a) you can get a color shift, especially from cheaper filters b) variable nd filters use polarisation filters and thus can influence reflections and the sky c) when you go too far and use a filter without hard stops, an X will appear due to the way those filters work. Yes, fixed nd filters offer better image quality, but you loose the flexibility. If you go for different fixed nd filters you might take a look at the xume manfrotto stuff.

    I WILL be getting a Fuji X-T3!

    depends on what you want to do. What things are you considering, what will you be shooting and where are your limitation when it comes to size, weight and cost?

    I WILL be getting a Fuji X-T3!

    It a big lighter and thus feels a bit less sturdy than an X-H1, GH5 or higher end DSLR. But I haven't had any problems with Fuji hardware, not the X-T2, not X-H1 and not X-T3. I thought it was over when I dropped the X-T2 on concrete, but it only got some minor cosmetic damages and still works fine. So I don't really get it either.

    Fuji X-H1. IBIS, Phase Detect 4K beast?

    I agree, the update was great. I also noticed a big improvement when it comes to panning. The camera no longer tried so hard to keep the image steady and then snaps when you pan, but does it much better. I also agree, it feels very much like the Olympus dual stabilization, which is probably the best on the market.

    it's called natural liveview and you can bind it on custom keys to toggle it.

    EOSHD's best and worst cameras of 2018

    best? No. It's one of the sharpest though yes. Nice backscreen. Better than the A7III yes and mediocre autofocus for stills. For AF-C I'd even call it bad with just one card slot and that one is XQD. Won't buy no. It's autofocus is years behind the Sony and so is the continous stills shooting experience. It got one card slot which makes it useless to some. It has no option for a batterygrip yet and the list goes on. And no, I am no huge fan of the Sony, but for hybrid shooters I feel the Sony is the much better option. My coffee machine has better AF-C than the Nikon 😂 😂 😂

    EOSHD's best and worst cameras of 2018

    From a hybrid shooters perspective I agree, the X-T3, A7III and X-H1 were great. Combined they would be even better, but that's not in the cards. (X-H1 Body and IBIS, X-T3 Specs, Color and pricing and A7III sensor size and battery) Nikon made a nice attempt but for me it feels like catching up with 2 year old cameras and not matching what is available today. Canon? They pulled a classic canon. Underperform and overcharge. But they lenses do look nice. Canon has always been a great lens manufacturers, their cameras where what you had to use to use those lenses. I am really looking forward at what Olympus introduces in 2019, in 2018 they were missing. Seems like their market share is falling drastically 😕

    Canon Has Solved No IBIS On EOS R

    the only thing you remove is the need to calculate/guess the movement before correcting, the process is the same. But I'd love to see how it works, if anybody with an Eos R and a 50mm f/1.2 or adapted non stabilized lens could upload a few videos. That would be nice. Handheld, slow walking, so we get different types of movement.
