  1. Thanks! I used live view as I don't have a card with me at the moment, so that must be the case. Back then when I used an external recorder with the X-T2, I HAD to press record on the X-T2 too, otherwise the HDMI signal quality was worse, so I'm kinda used to doing that
  2. Can somebody pls check if AF speed under movie settings makes a difference? I'm using the 16mm 1.4 at the moment, and focus changes pretty fast, no matter what AF speed setting I use. It doesn't seem to make any difference if it's -5 or 5, am I missing something?
  3. My X-T3 just arrived, and the first thing I checked was that Auto ISO problem. Well, Auto ISO works perfectly fine, transitions seem smooth to me. Auto shutter is also fine. Auto aperture however looks exactly like on the examples people reported as being an Auto ISO problem. I believe they left the camera on auto aperture. Will do more testing later.
  4. I don't see that either. 10sec at 50fps is 500 frames. 10 sec at 60fps is 600 frames. If the project is 25 fps, the first one will be 500/25=20 sec long, the second will be 600/25=24 sec long, and they will be equally smooth. There is no skipping if you use up all the frames.
  5. An informative comparison, it's interesting to see how much better H.265 holds up when the shadows are pushed:
  6. Does anyone have a recommendation for SD cards that work with 400Mbps in the X-T3? The cards recommended by Fuji are an overkill as far as required bitrate goes, and they are very expensive as well. Fuji says that V60 cards should work fine for 400Mbps, but I remember that this is not as easy as it sounds, some V60 cards had problems in the GH5, while some worked perfectly fine.
  7. I'll look into this as well when my X-T3 arrives. Ordered it today.
  8. @CyclingBen I didn't mean to investigate, but googling X-H1 update 1.10 has your thread in the top 5 results I thought the auto ISO problem was fixed so that the transitions are really smooth now. If it's not, then the problem is not back, but it's still here... I just thought it is not as visible as in the first video I posted.
  9. Nope it was an auto ISO problem, Zed even mentions it in this video from 6:40: Edit: funny thing is that you as the creator of this thread specifically mention smooth auto iso as a feature of v1.10:
  10. My point is that having these bad ISO transitions looks to be a step back, since this problem was fixed via firmware 1.10 on the X-H1. It would be great if someone from here tested this though.
  11. It seems that the ugly ISO changes are back with the X-T3, check from 0:16. Can someone confirm this?
  12. Does anyone know a smart way to mount this to the X-T3? Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD According to Fuji, it should give you 400 mins of 4K60 recording time, compared to 40 mins with the battery.
  13. Out of curiosity I created two videos from a UHD sized TIF with lots of fine detail, once with SAO and SIS enabled, then disabled. I used the x265 library included in ffmpeg using CRF 3 for a raised bitrate and no other parameters besides SAO/SIS. I see absolutely no difference between the two versions even at 400% magnification. Then I thought maybe it's because there's no movement as it's a still image. So I downloaded some DNG's from Blackmagic's website, exported a short clip in Resolve using lossless AVI, and used the same ffmpeg scripts. Again, zero difference between the smoothed and non-smoothed versions. I checked the files with mediainfo to see the if the encoding parameters were passed to the x265 library and they are there. To make it short: if the hardware encoder works in a similar way (and I didn't fuck up my test somehow), I wouldn't worry about detail loss.
  14. Could you in theory compare it to 200Mbps 8bit H.264 to see if it really makes a difference? I mean, does the H.264 recorded by the X-T3 have similar smoothing filters?
  15. Well, all we need is someone with an X-T3 and an external recorder to see if there's any visible difference.
  16. But do they really reduce fine detail at these high bitrates? Would love to see a comparison, maybe this is for pixel peepers only.
  17. While that might be true, both are designed to reduce artifacts like banding, blocking, ringing, and both are enabled in x265 by default, so I guess it's nothing to worry about.
  18. Would you guys consider the XF16-55 over the XF18-55 for video? Does the IQ difference translate into video as well? Is the XF16-55 smoother in video AF? I know the big guy doesn't have OIS, but I'm on tripod/gimbal most of the time.
  19. Thanks, I thought the difference would be smaller.
  20. Eterna is in DR100 mode right? In DR400 mode the dynamic range should be about the same, according to Fuji.
  21. It's on vimeo as well, the description says 18-55: https://vimeo.com/195452189
  22. It would be nice if Fujifilm gave us a hint about X-H2 release date. Can you please ask them about it?
