The Great Mirrorless Camera Autofocus Shootout! (GH4, X-T1, A6000, E-M1) | TheCameraStoreTV

It seems like every 13 minutes, another mirrorless camera is announced that promises the 'World's Fastest Autofocus'. We decided to cut through all the hype and pit the fastest mirrorless cameras against each other, and we threw in a Nikon D4S, just to make it interesting. To really put these cameras through a stress test we went to Wildrose Motocross Park with a Fuji X-T1, Sony A6000, Olympus OMD E-M1 and Panasonic GH4!

Fuji X-T1 review #5: face detect autofocus | Laurence Kim

Fuji X-T1 review #5: face detect autofocus | Laurence Kim | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

I was really interested in the face detection capabilities of the X-T1 because, if properly executed, this could be a game changer.  As I reported here, the single shot autofocus works great, but with the caveat that changing the autofocus points is a pain.  If face-detection worked well, that would enable me to shoot portraits without having to recompose or change focus points at all. Sweet! So here is my first test. I took a doll and positioned it directly facing the camera.  I shot using the Fuji X 35mm f1.4 lens @ f1.4.  I needed a shallow depth of field to test the accuracy of the focus. I took 9 shots, positioning the doll’s face on each of the 9 sections of the viewfinder grid......

Fuji X-E2 AF Settings | Stanley Leary

Fuji X-E2 AF Settings | Stanley Leary | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

There is a learning curve with every new camera I get. Changing to another brand increases the learning curve a great deal. Auto Focus with the Fuji X-E2 has been a challenge for me due to the learning how the camera works the best. This was true with me learning all the settings for my Nikon D4. When shooting sports I used a totally different AF settings than for normal photojournalistic shooting that I normally am doing with storytelling style I use. This is what I am finding to work best for me for now for photojournalism style of shooting. First go to the shooting menu and go to the [camera 4] part of the menu. The top 4 menu items in that submenu all deal with AF......

You think Fuji X-Pro1 has slow or bad Autofocus, No it hasn’t, you just have to learn how to shoot with it properly! | Jan Oscarsson

You think Fuji X-Pro1 has slow or bad Autofocus, No it hasn’t, you just have to learn how to shoot with it properly! | Jan Oscarsson | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Bold statement? I don’t think so. Ok, first off, I know that the Fuji X-Pro1 and the rest of the X-serie cameras don’t behave like a Nikon D4 with top of the line Nikkor lenses! How do I know? Because I shoot Nikon D4 with top of the line Nikkor lenses daily. I love my Nikon cameras, truly love them. They are, without a doubt, the best cameras on the market today for what I shoot. There are of course photographers that may require higher resolution from their cameras but I don’t have the need for more megapixels. On my Epson printer I print large images, 44 inches (111 cm) on the short side from my Nikon D3 and D4 files. No problem at all.

The only thing that bothers me with my Nikon gear is the weight and bulk of the system, don’t get me wrong, I still love shooting with the Nikon gear but after a 12 hour day I’m not so much in love with carrying it around. So this summer I started to look for something with a smaller footprint and Fuji Sweden kindly lent me the Fuji X-Pro1 and a set of lenses. For a month I shot with the Fuji gear and starting out I had to learn how to shoot with it as the shooting experience of the X-pro1 is nothing like the D4. Not bad just different. Actually I had the X-pro on loan twice, first a week or two in the beginning of the summer. This was before the most recent firmware update was released, and during that time I didn’t really have time to shoot much with it. I mostly fiddled around with it at home shooting the family, so I sent it back to Fuji and was promised to get it back in the start of August. The second time I received the camera and lenses I had already planned lot’s of cool stuff to shoot with it. So for about 4-5 weeks I shot pretty much everything I usually shoot whit my Nikon gear. This time the most recent firmware was installed in both the X-Pro1 and lenses.....

Fuji X-E1 auto-focus and shot-to-shot performance demo | APW100


This shows what you can expect from the X-E1 in terms of optimal auto-focus speed and shot to shot performance. I uploaded it in 1080p so that you can see the stills in higher resolution and better judge the focusing abilities of the camera.

The magic moment when your subject and situation come together lasts but a split second. The X-E1’s EXR Processor Pro processes data collected by the sensor at high speed for quick response, comparable to DSLR cameras. You’ll never miss a shot.

Another AF oddity / tip for X-Pro1 | Devwild on DPreview.com

Another AF oddity / tip for X-Pro1 | Devwild on DPreview.com | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

Try laying the AF point across an area where the only contrast is a horizontal dividing line between two objects - in my case the top of a TV or picture frame vs the wall. The AF will struggle to focus, and depending on the circumstances, fail to lock more often than not. However, tilt the camera by 30-45 degress, or even 90 degrees, and it will lock - every time. Note that 90 degrees - horizontal lines don't seem to cause a problem in portrait mode, only lines parallel to the long edge of the frame.

 

Useful tip?
