    What put you off specifically?

    I'd say :

    - Poor battery life (40min is not acceptable)
    - Drop frame in raw 4k60 (!)
    - No way to use a powerbank and a SSD,
    - No Ibis, and Im ok with that since I have a Gimbal, but with no afc (even a bad one like GH5) it will be painful to use
    - The design with the hole on top for ventilation scares me a little for durability.
    - No remote control compatibility with any gimbal (but that could change)
    - The 120p crop
    - No tilt screen ( I don't care about fully articully)

    At this time, I see no reason to buy this camera instead of the GH5 with VLOG.
    Or even the X-T3 if you take stills a lot.

    You are not usable or useful. The X-T3 looks surprisingly good in incandescent lighting and the auto white balance is a lot better than other cameras I’ve tested. IBIS is extremly overrated, mostly hyped by vloggers and amateurs.

    For video ?
    Yeah right, no need to go further.

    I got My X-T3 with the 35f2 this morning, and playing with it next to the A7iii.
    1080p120 and 4k50 are really great, but not really usable without a gimbal or tripod.

    I feel that way with my Sony a7 iii. After thinking about "why?" for some time I've come to the conclusion that it's because it's a near flawless camera, which means it's better than me and I therefore feel inadequate or maybe even antiquitated by it. So my lack of love for it is a projection of my jealousy of it. This sounds really silly I know but im totally serious ?

    I feel the same way, and am seriously considering selling my A7iii and all my lens, for a Fuji X-t3.

    It's a big step since FF gives me all I want, but not this Fuji feeling.
    I'm also not really convinced buy the fuji lenses I could want, like the 56/1.2 and their old AF motor (painfull for video).

    But the fun I feel when I use my Friend X-T3, it's above all those technics considerations.
    And even if I do whatever I want with raw stills, there is something about Fuji colors I can't describe.

  4. After playing with it today, and really enjoyed he Fuji feeling, here’s why I prefer to wait an upcoming X-h2 :

    - The battery is weak ; 43mn in 4k recording.
    - No Ibis. Even If Idon’t find the A7iii one relevant, it’s quite usefull to avoid micro jitters.
    - No flip screen. I know... it’s a youtuber or vloger thing. Well, not really. It’s really useful when you are a one man crew, and don’t want to deal with an external monitor.
    - Cause I don’t like h265 codec at high bitrate, a 4k50 10bit 422 in h264 would be nice.
    - Crop Factor ; 1.53 + 1.25 in 4k50 is too much for my taste.

    I really think the X-t3 is a fantastic Cameras, but I also believes that a lot of these above will be fixed in their next camera.

    So we are comparing it to the EOS R are we :)

    It is 4k60. EOS R doesn't even do 4K60!

    No-additional crop in 1.5x Super 35mm 4K/24/25/30p. GH5 isn't 1.5x crop. It's 2x crop. Quite different.

    Speed Booster = full frame. On GH5, close but no cigar.

    Codec - FAR superior to EOS R. Rolling shutter - FAR superior. Build quality - superior. Low light - superior (yes, really). Handling - superior. EVF - superior. Price - $700 less!

    Actually, I have no interest in the EosR, but was asking myself since I already have an A7iii and the Gh5, and after using a XT3 this afternoon, felt in love with it’s ergonomics.

    But 1.78 crop for 4k60 is difficult to accept, when you already have the two cameras above.

    It's due to both the body and the lens, newer lenses with quad linear motors are better for smooth AF, for example the f/2.0 primes and f/2.8 zooms.

    X-H1 also added customisable AF speed setting.

    You could try manual focus.

    Thanks. Unfortunately, manual focus is not an option for my kind of work.

    I’m afraid the only Fuji with reliable, controllable, and smooth AF in video is the X-H1. It’s not quite as good as Canon’s implementation but it’s pretty darn good.  

    I’d love to see what a xh1 could do with a 35f2 about smooth transition.



  7. Hi There,

    I own a XT-20, and something that really bothers me when I shoot videos, is the no-smooth transition with the autofocus between 2 points, when I use the 35f2 lens.
    No problem with the  16-50 f3.5-5.6

    If you can't see what I'm talking About, here AF test Fuji

    So I have a few questions :
    1) Since it's seems to be a lens related issue, is there a list with FUJI lens that offer smooth AF transition ?
    2) Do you think it could be fixed with body settings ?


    Thanks for you help ?



  8. The GH5 is pretty capable for still, but I wouldn't recommend it.

    I had to use it for shooting en Event, and it was not a pleasant experience ;

    This camera is thought to make video, as its ergonomics.

  9. After many test, I decided to keep the GH4 along with the A7iii.
    I need something really reliable, maybe with less creativity possibilities, but which will never let me down in difficult situation.

    As much I like the A7iii, I can't be sure that if I have some shoots to do outside at 35°, it will be usable. Also, the 4k50p is very helping when you need slowmotion or agressive stab.

    Keeping both is expensive, but now I feel good about any work to come.

    Good to hear! 

    How much continuous video in 1080 and 4K the Sony can record? Battery life seems great too, nothing like mkII bodies used to be.

    - 29mn59s continuous in both mode.

    - 2h45mn of video with one battery

    - 2h45mn at 4k25p 100m with a 128go sdcard


  11. Ok, so here we go :

    My only battery had 66% left, so I could only record 1 hour and 50mn.

    The temp in my room was 21/22 °C

    Results : NO OVERHEATING AT ALL :grin: Neither warning sign.


    Of course, results under the sun might be different, but I'm quite satisfied.

    I'll do a longer test with a powerbank later.
