  1. Really easy to make an X-T2, X-Pro-2 or X-H1 lock up. 1) Use a non Fuji recommended SD card and try to shoot bursts or swap between video/stills right after taking a photo or video. 2) Copy data from the card and not safety ejecting it from the computer. I’ve done this 4 or 5 times on accident and twice on purpose to test it. Works fine until you take a photo or video. After it’s saved the EVF goes wonky and you’ll be in lockup land after a few photos or shooting video. Fuji does need to fix their file system. Fat32? I’d gladly pay $5 more for a Fuji camera to have exfat.
  2. It almost looks like it’s on instagram mode or something. It’s almost not consistent throughout the clip. Different editors? Lenses? Days of shooting? Something seems off
  3. Quick follow up. I shot some 120p video on the X-H1 using a Fuji 35mm 2.0 with all of the different peaking settings (Off, Low and High) and all different colors (Yellow, Red, Blue, White) and i saw no difference in the aliasing / ghosting. Then I thought maybe a non-fuji lens would make a difference so tried the same test with a Rokkor 45mm. No difference. The odd thing is, it almost seems like the processor is sending the peaking data to the recording some how even if it's not turned on. Could be my eyes, or it could be confirmation bias... Maybe the software coding is sloppy, maybe it's the IBIS, maybe I suck as a cinematographer... TL:DR Turning the peaking on or off made no difference
  4. I think you might be onto something... We don't see this on the X-T2 120p only on the X-H1. I wonder if the "high" peaking setting only available on that cam is the reason. Off to do some testing, I'll report back.
  5. Thanks for the info. I was looking at the jpeg info instead of RAW. Too much time in the heat today...
  6. I believe it is 60 frames Here is an example from Keith Wee https://keithwee.com/portfolio/review-of-the-fujifilm-x-t3-refinements-towards-perfection-and-that-zero-black-out-30-fps/ it's about a third of the way down the review. Really impressive.
  7. Sold! We have an X-Pro 2 that is looking for a new home if anyone is interested.
  8. Looks like the 2k is up to 200. If this camera is as popular with the rest of the film/video community (We have too many Fuji camera's as it is...) maybe we'll see Sigma or Tamaron make some X series lenses. The popularity might also force Fuji into re-releasing some of their primes with OIS and *crosses fingers* adding OIS to optically spectacular 16-55mm brick. We're going to pre-order one, so when it comes in, let us know what tests you would like to see and we'll post them up.
  9. With a 26 or 28 megapixel sensor I would think Fuji could make the 4K work without a crop a la Samsung. As long as they figured out the heat issue. At a wedding this past weekend I was talking with a group of people who make music videos for hip hop artists. They all said with all of he camera announcements coming that the X-T3 was the most interesting because it has the potential to mix the best of Panasonic (minus ibis) with the best of Sony. That 10 bit Fuji color would be in one persons words “the tits”
  10. For those of you in the US who have PlayStation Vue as your TV provider I thought this might be interesting https://blog.us.playstation.com/2018/08/29/playstation-emerging-filmmakers-program-names-winners/
  11. Selling my Fuji GFX body and Kipon adapters for M42 and Rokkor lenses Body is in excellent condition and has under 10,000 shutter count after almost 2 years of use It may only shoot 1080p but the medium format is beautiful $4750 shipped in the US you paypal fees and international shipping is fine to as long as you pay the cost. Pictures below
  12. Finally did the update for the new X-H1 firmware yesterday. Here are my first impressions: Autofocus in AF-C is leaps and bounds better. My test shots on some birds and physically walking up to and away a moving subject were very good. Using the 16-55mm zoom lens it was able to accurately track my wife walking around the yard watering plants while I slowly walked from one end of the yard to another. Auto ISO transitions are super smooth and almost imperceptible. While I rarely use the Auto setting for video, it's nice to know I could use it in a conference or presentation situation and be okay. IBIS is slightly improved. Using the fuji 16-55mm, a 45mm minolta and 55mm super tak I didn't find as many huge jumps and shifts while panning. I'm sure this will be the focus of their next update. The overall system stability seems to be worse. I had 3 write errors happen while just messing around with the camera. All three happened while shooting in manual with peaking turned on. I'll be testing this more. Here is a link to the firmware if you're looking to upgrade http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/firmware/x/xh1/index.html Overall a really good firmware update, looking forward to the '2.0' update that is rumored for September

  14. I've had nothing but trouble with vimeo over the past 18 months. Uploads take longer than to any other site and their playback almost always buffers and stops even if I'm at the university which has 10gbps internet. While trying some others I came across Wistia (not sure if it's available in the UK) and it seems to be the best though they are fairly expensive. You can get a free account and upload up to 5gb videos with a limit of 50gb total in your storage (at least when I signed up) but your video player will always show the wistia logo in the corner.
  15. It's really impressive. I've found Eterna works better on the X-H1 and X-T2 for indoor and lowlight shots and the Fuji WDR works better for brightly lit and outdoor scenes. If only these camera's had better battery life, that's about all I can find to complain about any more, they actually make shooting fun!
  16. Sony VG-10 I absolutely love this camera and hate it at the same time. The image is great, the rolling shutter is astonishing, but this is a camera that got me into the interchangeable lens world. I still have my VG-10 and when I do that it out, it's fun to use. I would never use it on professional job, but for recording a conference or presentation longer than 30 minutes it would work out great (provided you have access to a power outlet).
  17. @liork Nice job! Can't wait to go back to Chamonix. I assume some of those jitters are just from YouTube not being able to stream effectively, otherwise, excellent.
