  10. I see two separate discussions here: (1) whether full-frame (FF) is actually 'better' than cropped sensors (APS-C) and (2) whether Fujifilm should enter the FF market. (1) in terms of image quality, bigger sensors have an advantage over smaller sensors. It's basic physics (and electronics). It depends however on comparing sensors of similar generations. A 10y old design is most likely less in terms of IQ than a recent design. You need to compare apples with apples... Whether or not the difference in IQ is visible, is a totally different matter. That depends on quality of the rest of the camera, quality of lenses, quality and size of the viewing screen or prints, ability of the photographer... et cetera. Whether the difference in IQ matters is an even more personal question. That is a matter of budget, weight and size you're willing to carry, personal preference for a camera brand or the purpose of use... A landscape stills camera has different requirements than a fast action sports hybrid camera... So, technically a bigger sensor generally has better IQ than a smaller sensor, but there are many more factors that determine the 'best camera for you'. (2) Fujifilm is a fairly large corporate, but the camera division in itself isn't particularly large. It's smaller than e.g. Nikon's and Panasonic's imaging divisions and more than 5x smaller than Sony's imaging division. Moreover, back in the late 2000's, the camera division of Fujifilm was on the brink of being closed. The X-system was the 'last attempt' to address the photographers market and they succeeded. In itself that was a great success, because the market for digital cameras (compact + interchangeable lens cameras) shrunk with more than 90% between 2010 and 2020. Their bet to stay close to affordable, but good quality ILCs paid off. They found a niche market and by focusing on that market (compact APS-C cameras, a decent lens line, retro styling and film simulations) they became the dominant player next to Sony. By 2015 Fujifilm made the decision to launch a digital cropped medium format. That wasn't strange, since in the days of film Fujifilm medium format cameras had a good reputation for being rugged and affordable whereas in the 35mm camera market Fujica was a 'B-brand' at best. Again, MF is a niche market in which they could become a dominant player. Also note that Fujifilm doesn't manufacture it's own sensors. They buy from Sony. That means that they will always be a little behind in terms of the latest generation of sensors. Usually 6-9 months. Now, when entering the FF market it's like you enter the shark pool. It takes a lot of money and other resources to succeed and even then be only #3 or #4 in the market. Imagine: you not only have to design and produce a range of cameras, but also the accompanying lenses. None of the X-mount lenses will cover a FF-sensor. All of the GF-mount lenses are too big and slow for FF (but great for MF). Next to that, when you want a professional FF-system, you have to set-up a world-wide Professional Support Service that operates 24/7 and is present at all large events (Olympics, World Cups, UN, EU, WEF, G7 and G20 events... you name it). That is very different from their current basic FPS for a handful of MF fashion photographers... ;-). So, I guess that Fujifilm gladly forfeits the FF-market and focuses on markets where they can be a dominant player. Given their size and the shrinking of the market, I think that is a smart strategy.

    Winter Landscapes

    ... but locally it is pretty much finished. Orion, The Seven Sisters(*) and the other winter constellations are packing up and moving out. The snow melted into river floods and birds are headed north again. (*) The Seven Sisters are also known as the Pleiades and go by many other names. The automaker Subaru uses the Pleiades as their icon on the cars they build.

  34. Thanks to @Joe Roxx, @0301chris, and @flamidey for the guidance on capture cards. And fingers crossed that the X-S10 gets full Xwebcam2 support, but given that we don't know when or if that will happen and what the resulting quality will be...I decided to experiment on the cheap ($26 total) with: Micro HDMI to HDMI Adapter Cable, Wenter 6.5ft/2M Micro HDMI to HDMI Cable (Male to Male) for Gopro Hero and Other Action Camera/Cam with 4K/3D Supported Video Capture Card, GUERMOK USB 3.0 HD Audio Capture Card, 4K 1080P60 Capture Devices for Gaming Live Streaming Video Recorder, Compatible with Windows Mac OS System YouTube for PS4, Switch, Xbox So far so good. It's the same level of control (everything set up on the camera), but with a much better image (full frame rate). Wishing I had pulled the trigger on this from day one.

    Fuji Birds

    Hello everyone! I am so happy to have found this forum which is sharing the beautiful passion for bird photography. As an introduction: I am an amateur photographer, I have purchased my first Fujifilm this year (an XT-200) after over 11 years shooting with a compact Canon (G11). Since I live in Panama, and I love wildlife, I got more and more into bird watching and bird photographs, since I can find dozen of beautiful and colorful species in my backyard (besides many other wild animals). I have just bought a 2nd hand XC 50-200 lens, which seems to do a great job for my needs (see the keel-billed toucan here below), I have been shooting only during daytime, and mostly to birds in a standstill (i.e. not flying) with different light condition, and pretty much always in manual mode (M) with the following settings: ISO set to AUTO2 (ISO base 200; ISO limit 1600) Photometry: Multi Shutter type: MS Focus mode: AF-S AF mode: zone SS: I play around between 500 and 1000 F: I try to keep it as low as possible, but I don't play too much with this I am a bit overwhelmed with the amount of setting and option and still in the learning process of the new camera and the brand Fuji. Now the question part: I have been trying to use S (shutter priority AE) mode and got completely confused. I have been trying to move across a big range of SS in good light, and F sets at 4.5 automatically but it is nearly always RED. I cannot get any decent photo in this mode. I am not very familiar in shooting in A mode either. But I would gladly hear from any of you who can provide suggestion on how to better take advantage of semi-automated mode(s). Have fun!
