  1. Correction: 96 kHz/24 bit .WAV audio recording. After importing it into Adobe Premiere Pro, and editing in Adobe Audition, down-sampled it to 24 bit/48 kHz in the export media process. Anyway, I love the sound of the two birds talking back and forth. Matched those two birds from Kauai to the Blue Jay couple in Oregon. Will have to make more stories with Nature as the focus. Yes, I know that the songs are not matched to the birds shown. Artistic license! Until someone notices. Then I will tell them.
  2. Made this video yesterday, from photos that I have taken over the past few days, and the recording that I made of the birds singing when I was in Kauai in February. Recorded with Sony Linear PCM Recorder PCM-M10. I did edit the audio in post to take a Noise Print of the ocean sound and remove it, as well as boost the gain. Otherwise, no change to the original sound. Recorded at the highest quality in stereo, 24 bit, 48 kHz. All photos SOOC, Straight Out of Camera, no post editing. L, 16:9, Fine/RAW. Shot RAW and JPG, Film simulation Velvia for 1st 2 shots, Astia for remainder.
  3. Another portrait shoot out comparison. Same model and photographer. Outdoors in direct sun. No flash. Three different camera bodies and lenses, all 35mm F1.4 Primes. The XT-3 also had the Fujinon XF 23mm F1.4 R Prime lens mounted sometimes. Two FF vs XT-3. Canon EOS R Mirrorless w/Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM Lens vs Sony a7 III Full-Frame Mirrorless w/Sony SEL35F14Z Distagon T FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA Standard-Prime Lens for Mirrorless Cameras (Zeiss) vs Fujifilm X-T3 w/Fujinon XF35mm F1.4 R. All in auto white balance with default profile. JPEGs out of camera. XT-3 used Classic Chrome film profile.
  4. Would love to see a comparison shoot out for portrait work on the X-T3 between the Prime Lenses: Viltrox 85 mm F1.8 AF X mount (price? availability? Cannot seem to find it - $300?) vs Fujifilm XF 90mm F2 R LM WR ($699 USD) vs Fujifilm XF 56 mm F1.2 R ($749 USD) vs Fujifilm XF 50mm F2 R WR ($449 USD) vs Fujifilm XF 35 mm F1.4 R ($599 USD) vs Fujifilm XF 35 mm F2 R WR ($399 USD) vs Fujifilm XF 23 mm F1.4 R ($899 USD) vs Fujifilm XF 23mm F2 R WR ($449 USD). Range of prices: Around $300 USD to $899 USD. Lens length range: 23 mm to 90 mm. F stop range: 1.2 to 2. Let's see the work. You could add i
  5. Fujinon Prime Lenses! Expensive. Which to get for portrait work? All of them? That will require quite a budget! Which do you prefer? For which uses? Indoors in low light? Outdoors, with abundant light? What about on a gimbal, for video work? I like the 90mm F2 R LM WR, and I like the 56mm F1.2 R. I really like the look of the 90mm R LM WR outdoors. I also like the look of the 50mm F2 R WR, and the 35mm F1.4 R, and the 23mm F1.4 R. I own the 35mm F2 R WR. I do like the very fast focusing, and it does a great job. However, the bokeh is not there compared with the 35mm F1.4. Subject separation i
  6. Thanks! Great work by Christophe Pellé. This lens looks very interesting. LOMO 3.7X 0.11 MICROSCOPE OBJECTIVE https://www.closeuphotography.com/lomo-3-7x-objective
  7. Has anyone tried this hack to make a Macro lens with X-mount Fujifilm lenses (or any lens) on your X-T3?

  9. Anyone have this lens for your X-T3? It looks like the price dropped $1,000 USD. A bargain now?

  10. Is there a speed booster for the XT-3?
  11. Which camera body are you using now? And for a telephoto lens?
  12. I think it is a very good lens (Fujinon XF10-24 mm F4 R OIS) on my XT-3 and especially for my purposes. Very sharp images, and it works great with video. I will post some footage and stills with it when I can. For doing my lectures for my online courses in my recording studio, it is a better focal length than the 18 - 55 mm kit lens, and for outdoor photography and video work, especially landscapes, it is great. And for other situations where you would need that range. It was a great move to get this lens. It has some weight to it, but that's not a problem. I also really like the Fujinon XF55
  13. The video above is a little dated. I would like to see the same review done with the XT-3 updated with the latest firmware, and also shot with other lenses to compare. And this one is interesting. And another entertaining video. On another subject, I am looking into an external recorder/monitor for my XT-3. I would like a recommendation from XT-3 owners who are using this in their photo and film work. I am looking at the Atomos products and others. Which one do you recommend, or do you think that it is not necessary? Yes, I know that it depends on what you
  14. That's what I have, and it works very well. However, I made proxies to make the editing in Adobe Premiere Pro faster. That worked quite well the last time I edited a 90+ minute video with DCI 4K, 400 Mb/s. Huge [repeat, HUGE file!] I posted my setup someplace here in the forums. Let me see if I can find it and just paste it in. The great thing about my setup is that it is very portable. I can take it on the plane easily carry-on. Here it is: I would love to see it lightning fast too! Maybe in 2019?
