    mrPeter reacted to DaveC in New to Fuji   
    Welcome rickc, I too was new to Fuji when I got my X-S10 and 16-80mm last December. It is a great camera and lens combo.
    Point 1. To wake up the camera just half press the shutter button but keep it pressed for a second or too and it will wake up. When half pressed you will feel the IBIS doing its thing , thats OK, just keep it pressed till it wakes up.
    Point 2. Set the X-S10 to M mode on the mode dial and you will have aperure on the front dial and shutter speed on the rear dial. Then set the iso to Auto, Press the iso button on the top plate and use the joy stick to scroll down to the auto iso settings. The user manual does explain the auto iso settings quite well (the pdf that is). Note you can also re-assign the top left dial to exposure compensation if you like that as well. I have been using these settings just lately to photograph butterflies at high shutter speeds.
    I came from using Canon and Nikon cameras and find the image quality is outstanding and hope you continue to enjoy the camera.
    Best wishes DaveC.

    I had a similar experience with my X-T4, switching off D-range priority fixed it for me.
    Hope this helps for you too.

    No. (Not yet) I hope Fuji will come with a firmware upgrade to bring the X-T4 more in line with the newer X-E4 of which you can store image size and quality, several autofocus settings and more.

    Same happens on my x-e3, canon M and m5. It’s an inconvenience but far far away from what you call a design disaster
    it’s a limitation of small bodies. Some mechanical calculations were made and that ended up being the best support point

    mrPeter reacted to murigius in IBIS on Fuji XT-4 - How do you turn it off?   
    I agree, I'm pretty new at the X-T4 as well and I found Kasumi3344's reply a bit insulting. (Later) I read through the book Kasumi3344 offered and found the author's attitude insulting. Come on guys, why not drop the sharp, impatient, know-it-all attitude and just offer helpful information?

    I would stop testing and just send it in. You obviously found something is wrong with your lens, let Fuji check it. Provide them with your test images and description of how you tested.

    mrPeter reacted to Robr in Who's opinion do you most trust on Youtube about Fuji?   
    I think it’s a tough ask. I take each with a grain or sometimes a block of salt.
    I’ve produced videos and know it’s a ton of work and when it comes to someone doing it for their income... it changes everything.
     Plus in todays internet, I think business knows how to protect their products with hidden sponsorships, articles and with comments, down votes and customer reviews from employees acting/pretending to be normal users. 
    My thoughts in no order:
    Gordon Laing - for a long time I’ve felt he was honest in evaluations and I like his consistency in testing. Dislike his newer dummied down rating system.
    Theoria Apothasis - has vast experience and equipment, not sponsored publicly or hidden.  But I’ve stopped watching because I’ve also grown extremely tiered of his consistently praising himself, then repeating it again and again and again in every video. The tidbits of “on topic” info. happen between long episodes of self praise. It’s exhausting and just not worth sitting through because it happens in every video. 
    Kai W - entertainment. For me, he’s funny and original.
    Maarten Heilbron and a few “others” I’ve gotten useful info from. Maarten’s a bit old school but I find him more educated then the others.
    Pal2tech - Comes to mind but I think there are a great deal of regurgitated reviewers like him that offer repacked info they pull from others work and give bad and clueless advice to people who need real help.  I realized what he was doing after viewing others content and then his, plus his thoughtless bad advice on multiple topics told me he was actually a danger to people. Those poor folks didn’t know that what he was advising them to do was actually bad advice and showed his  inexperience. I have no interest for players.

    mrPeter reacted to CatsAreGods in Dual Iso   
    This has been a very interesting thread. I never heard of Dual ISO and almost thought it was an in-joke (like "blinker fluid" for cars). To return the favor, I found this awesome video that explains the details, but you will need at least 2 or 3 cups of coffee to keep up:

    I use Blender, it's an open source program, free to use and many good tutorials on YouTube.
    The program is also used by professional moviemakers. It does the same or more as the apps recommended above.

    Edit: Davinci Resolve is another free video editor worth trying.

    mrPeter reacted to Jacques Gaines in Who's opinion do you most trust on Youtube about Fuji?   
    My God this was eye opening. I just so happened to be one of those YouTubers. I try my best to be as objective as possible in my reviews but must admit that to survive on YouTube and actually make it on the platform, Youtubers eventually get too tempted by affiliate links and the like. As a person doing this from the other side I would strongly advise all of you to not expect a whole bunch of objectivity from a YouTuber with a great deal of success. Why? Well basically all YouTubers start with good intention and realize at one point that giving away info does not pay the bills. If the Youtuber is paying the bills really well? . . . You do the math.  I am not offering an excuse for us, I am just making the observation. Also, just putting this out there, look for videos about the process and less about the gear. When I look at my stats and see that my video on gear has gotten 20,000 views and my video about a natural light photo shoot with the X-T3 has only gotten 400 views. . .  You can guess what the next video is going to be about. You guys should not be looking at YouTube for your next gear choice and more as a way to be inspired and motivated to go out and shoot. I will not change YouTube nor do I claim to have the best channel out there but the answer to this question all depends on what you want to get out of the channel. Cheers....Now go out and shoot!

    I don't trust any of them, either they are just commercial interests or they are the usual self-portrayals who smugly want to entertain themselves and the rest of the world with their personal opinions and maybe make money doing it.

    You're welcome Bedouin. Fuji paid for transport of the defective lens and for the new lens. I must add that the defective lens had been at the service centre two times without result except "lens tested and is within spec." 
    For your test I would use the smallest focus point. Do you have other lenses that you can do the same test with? That would rule-out a camera-based problem.
    Maybe something is wrong with the alignment of the lens elements.

    Hi Bedouin, bad luck when a lens behaves like yours. I do not have this lens but had a 35F/2 that behave like your 56mm and was replaced under warranty. If yours is under warranty why not ask your Fuji service center to pay for transport?
    Did you use the smallest focus area for your test above?

    I borrowed a TX-3 from my brother and I couldn't get the LCD screen to work.  He kinda just said "oh that...yeah I don't know whats wrong with that.  I took a good hard look at the thing and realized the little sensor at the bottom of the view finder that the cam uses to tell when your face is there against the camera was packed with dust!  When I dug it out with a Q-tip the display fired right up.  My brother owes me a beer now.

    mrPeter reacted to Nicky in X-T30 Video Overheating Solutions   
    The reason I posted is because I see the 10 minutes limit posted many times and in many reviews as a reason not to buy an XT30, but in reality a 10 minute shot in video terms is an eternity and is absolutely not a reason to avoid the XT30. In the vast majority of cases there is utterly no reason to shoot continuously and most people will get a better result from "running and gunning". However, no more posts on this subject. If you really want to discuss long recordings, please go ahead.

    mrPeter reacted to K PRETHVIRAJ in X-T30 Video Overheating Solutions   
    Dear friend , this post was about how to shoot continuously for a long time or to shoot repeatedly without much time between each shot to cooldown . i understand that you're able to shoot less than 10 minute and cover the whole event , but not everyone is skilled as you ,most need to shoot excess and later cut out the unwanted scenes , so they want ways to record as long as possible continuously, if possible without record time limits , so if you have any suggestions , please share , even the ways to plan the shot's , . have a nice day !

    I've shot loads of wedding on my XT30 and never come close to the 10 minute limit. Decide on the video shots you NEED, nail them. Get the sound on a separate audio recorder, you probably need a gimbal.

    mrPeter got a reaction from Golden Oxen in IBIS versus OIS on X-T4   
    I asked Fuji service Europe about IBIS/OIS:
    Has OIS priority with longer lenses because it is more effective for longer focal lengths while IBIS has priority with shorter focal lengths?.
    They answered: >> in practise you don't have the option to choose between OIS and IBIS. That means that both options work always together. The fact is when you use lenses with longer focal length the OIS has priority as of the reason you mentioned. This means the stabilisation measured in EV steps will not be so effective as the use of lenses with wider focal length.<< BR Henk
