Evolution of autofocus for X-T2 and X-Pro2 Ver.2.00 | X Stories | FUJIFILM X

Evolution of autofocus for X-T2 and X-Pro2 Ver.2.00 | X Stories | FUJIFILM X | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

We will talk a little more on the evolution of autofocus for X-T2 and X-Pro2 Ver.2.00 by comparing it to the AF performance of X-Pro2 Ver.1.00. First, there are more AF points. Take a look at the screenshot below. You will notice that there are two additional lines of AF points at both right and left end of the display. The number of AF points for the phase detection pixels remains the same. They are for the contrast AF, but with the 384fps readout capability of X-Trans CMOS III, the fast processing power of X-Processor Pro, and the newly designed lens range will make the contrast AF fast enough that we are certain you will see the difference. X-Pro2, Is the AF faster? This will especially be valuable if your style of photograph is to have the camera on a tripod and compose your picture carefully before deciding on the focus point.......

Using the Zone Focusing Method for Street Photography | Chris Gampat

Using the Zone Focusing Method for Street Photography | Chris Gampat | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

When it comes to street photography, one of the best ways to make sure that you have your subject in focus is to use the zone focusing system. This is also called hyperfocal length focusing; which involves using the depth of field and focusing scale on your camera or lens to get the scene and subject sharply in focus. It’s a tried and true method: Bresson and a number of other famous photojournalists used it to capture some of the most iconic photos. Ever heard the statement “F8 and be there?” Well, that’s pretty much it. To do this, we suggest starting out by stopping the lens down to anywhere between f5.6 and f11. Then as you focus further out from the camera, more of your scene will come into focus.......

Firmware V1.10 for X-T1 | Fujifilm Global

Firmware V1.10 for X-T1 | Fujifilm Global | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

The firmware update Ver. 1.10 from Ver. 1.00 incorporates the following issues:

Addition of compatibility with "XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR"
To ensure that autofocus performs as expected, upgrade the firmware for the camera.

Improvement of "Exposure compensation/exposure indicator" in EVF
Values are added to the scales of the indicator for better visibility.

Improvement of Movie-record button operability
To avoid an accidental movie shooting, the delayed time will become longer between the moment you press the button and a movie shooting starts or ends.

The phenomenon is fixed that images are not recorded with the set interval when "INTERVAL" in "INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING" is set to 5 sec or less. In this case, the setting of "IMAGE DISP." in "SCREEN SET-UP" will change to "OFF" automatically.

Precaution

If firmware updating fails, the camera may no longer operate correctly in some cases. Carefully read the notes provided here.Always use the fully-charged battery when updating the firmware as a basic manner. Never turn the camera off or attempt to use any of the camera controls while the firmware is being overwritten.Firmware updating requires approximately 90 seconds.Once the firmware has been updated, some data of the previous version cannot be restored.

Fuji

Not much of interest here: a mildly warmed-over X100T, another color of XT-1, an X30 and a couple of lenses. The X30 has now grown so large you might as well get a small mirrorless camera instead. If I display a palpable lack of enthusiasm for Fuji, it’s mainly because whilst they build a great camera body – the X-T1’s ergonomics are superb, barring flat buttons – the lenses are merely good, and they still haven’t really addressed the workflow problem. ACR still does a terrible job with the files, and Silkypix is still unusable for a professional workflow and large quantity of images. I think it’s very telling that a lot of the ‘pros’ who use Fuji do not shoot raw. Shooting JPEG leaves far too much image quality on the table......

Lainer's insight:

Not APS-C, but I still like this series of Fuji cameras.

Fuji x100s Follow Up Review :: Life Without DSLRs | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it
I have been DSLR free for about two months and all is well. During the past two months I’ve been to Cuba, New York (x2), and Arizona. I feel I have hit just about every type, and kind, of job I do and my little Fujis have performed flawlessly.

George J. Kingsnorth's curator insight, February 20, 2013 6:25 PM

I like the idea of using a nostalgic film-like camera as I have recently bought a couple of 70s rangefinders just for fun. I would like to get one of these cameras too.

EvilTeddie's comment, February 21, 2013 10:50 AM
Not true. I think the first "romantic" camera accolade must belong to Leica.
