    SETHSIDE reacted to Rastadori in Hello All!   
    Hi everyone
    Excited to join the Fuji X Forum. My name is Daniel, and I'm really looking forward to exploring and connecting with artists here who have a passion for the X system like I do.
    I've been photographing since 2011, I started with skateboarding, then landscapes from 2013-2018, and then portraits. After 2020, portraits were difficult to schedule and shoot because of the pandemic and to be honest, it wasn't really my calling. Fast forward to beginning of this year and I began fully back on Landscapes with some wildlife. I feel that this really has made me happy.
    I've picked up my first Fuji camera back in 2013 with an Xpro 1. I loved the camera but eventually got a XT10 in 2015. After that its all been a joy to play with many other cameras (xe2, xt3, and now using xt4)
    I wanted to upload some of my work but it seems that the files are a little too big. See my work below; You can also see my work on Instagram @dcfotographs
    Thank you all, looking forward to interacting with the group.

    SETHSIDE reacted to jlmphotos in Film Simulations are Worthless   
    Not sure of your age bracket but if you've ever shot film you are basically using a "film simulation". When I shot film I'd use Vericolor 120 for portraits, or Kodak Kodacrhome ISO 25 or Fuji Velvia ISO 25 pushed to ISO32 for serious colors especially greens.  As others here have said shoot jpeg + raw.  If you just want to pop JPEGS right out of the oven (don't know why anyone would do that but...) you can create your own profile and make of the image what you want.  You can make it as flat - think  F-log - or the full monty: Velvia.  You do have choices which honestly I did not when I was shooting Nikon  D300, d3, and D800/D800e years ago.

    SETHSIDE reacted to jerryy in X-T4 for kids and pets   
    Kids should be able to work with it in point and shoot mode, but the pets might have a few problems, most dog paws are too big to move the controls. Cat paws and bird claws might be capable, you will just have to try it with which ever pet you are wanting to hand the camera off to and have them grab a few frames.
    Most of the knocks on theX-T4’s autofocus come from trying to use lenses that are designed for stills to get videos, they just were not designed to react that way. These complaints vanished when the reviewer attached “video” lenses and tried again. If you are mainly wanting still photos, you should have no problems.

    SETHSIDE reacted to pentaxianbelgium in New recipes found - Oslo based photographer : Øyvind Nordhagen   
    Didn't find the right topic selection, so I wrote under X-T4, but works for X-T3 and lower probably also.
    Ok then, I found new recipes :  Øyvind Nordhagen – Medium
    An Oslo based photographer.
    Also an interesting article about "Medium format look on small sensors"
    I always publish them on my site + on my page "The Largest Collection of Recipes brought together"
    But will try to remember to mention them here as well - my site is all open source and free, i'am not selling anything - nor get paid.
    Hope it helps someone.

    SETHSIDE reacted to Herco in Is the XT4 really worth it ?   
    There are a few major differences between the T3 and the T4 and only you can decide how important these are for you.
    The T4 has in-body image stabilization (IBIS), a bigger battery, a slightly more pronounced grip and an articulating screen over the T3. In terms of image quality, EVF and AF there's no difference between the cameras (after firmware update 4.xx).
    As you state that you will create video content the IBIS and the battery life can be real benefit. Whether the articulating screen of the T4 is a must-have for you, depends on whether you record yourself or not. For normal photographic use I'd prefer the 2-axis tilting screen of the T3, but this is very personal.
    The IBIS of the T4 is a significant advantage when you shoot video or low-light photography. Not to be underestimated unless you're a tripod-user. The battery of the T4 lasts about twice as long as the smaller T3 battery. Think about 45-60 min in video record mode in the T3 and 90-110 min for the T4. Additional spare batteries for the T3 are cheaper to buy though and a battery grip with two spare batteries mitigates the difference.
    Personally, if I were to do significant video work, I'd always opt for the T4 and buy if needed a pre-owned 35/f2. You could even consider the cheaper XC35/f2 rather than the XF35/f2. There's no difference in image quality, just in construction and aperture ring. Note that for video work the 35/f2 has quite heavy focus breathing. When that is a concern, you might want to opt for the 23/f2. 
    For photography only, I'd prefer the T3 for it's 2-axis tilting screen. When the T3 deal includes the 35/f2, I'd consider it a very good deal. This lens is usually $350 new and $250 pre-owned (depending on the market).
