  1. What I meant was, that (with older models), as soon as you hit the movie record button, it jumped into recording and there is no way, to few the exact crop beforehand. That's one of the many small things that made me not use the X-T1 for video (well, besides the terrible 60p quality)
  2. @Andrew Reid thanks for your input! Are you really using an X-Pro2 for video? (I though I read somewhere that you considered buying one) It looks like Fuji has done their homework on image/video quality. What is missing, is the usability and interface. I guess it's still not possible, to first see your 16:9 frame, before starting video, is it? (I think with 4K and a few improvements to the usability, the upcoming Fujis could really make fun shooting video on! )
  3. That's not how it works. There are not 40 million AF points on the 80D but 40million half pixels. you need many of them to get a phase information. Same goes for OSPDAF (what all other sensors use). You need to mask hundreds if not thousands of pixels for one single AF point. So there hundreds of thousands AF pixels on those sensors too. But yes, the 80D seems to have finally caught with Sony designed Exmor sensors when it comes to read noise at low isos (dynamic range)
  4. Now that the dpreview is out, it's easier for many of us to do some more comparison. http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sony-a6300/5 Of course the A6300 blows away the X-Pro2 with it's 4K, log profile and other stuff, but looking at the 1080p samples is interesting: The X-Pro2 looks much more detailed (at some points over sharpened), but all in all it looks really nice, especially if you know how older Fuji cameras did. Any other thoughts/news?
  5. @Andrew Reid you wrote some time ago, that you really consider using the Fuji X-Pro2 for video. Are you really saying Canon is/got that bad? (for me, Fujis video quality was probably the worst with the older cameras)
  6. And I though overheating with 4K was the way to go since most manufacturers go that route (but yes, I heard too, that 4k produces too much heat on the X-Pro2)
  7. Very interesting. Stupid question, but how would you rate the X-Pro2 video (codec, details, color etc.) vs. the A6300 in 1080p? This is, because we know the X-T2 is having the same sensor and 4K (and video features), so it might give us an idea how it performs (personally I think, that most Fuji moire problems will go away with moving to 4K)
  8. The X-Pro2 for video? Interesting. Personally I am waiting for the X-T2 which is said to be more video centric (probably the 6k read out with 4k downsampling from the A6300) and have more video features. (personally I am hoping for a non fixed touchscreen, more video settings and feature like peaking and zebra)
  9. That's not how it works. We are not talking about 425 photodiodes. We are talking about 425 focus points. And it needs more than one pixel for an AF point. There are hundreds of thousands of half masked pixels on those sensors and yes, it does impact noise performance.
