  1. Thanks. I had already seen that video, and I am already doing that. Zoom is open and I am in video preferences. You can see that in the screenshot below. I have also: Tried connecting my X-T4 to my Macbook Pro Tried connecting both my X-T4 and X-S10 to my iMac Pro Tried using 2 other USB cables (one USB-C to USB-C Apple cable, and another USB-C to USB-A cable) to both my Macbook Pro and iMac Pro I'm getting the same result in each case.
  2. Well, I just tried and it didn't work. Here's what I did: On my X-S10 > Connection Settings > Connection Mode > USB Tether Shooting Auto Connected the X-S10 to my Macbook Pro M1 Pro via USB cable (note: I had to use a USB-A to USB-C adapter to do this, because my Macbook Pro doesn't have USB-A ports) Opened Fujifilm X Webcam 2 Opened Zoom and selected Fujifilm X Webcam 2 as the camera However, I didn't see any picture. Instead, I get this error message in the video window where the picture from the X-S10 should be: According to the manual, the cause of this is "The camera was connected in the wrong mode. Select USB TETHER SHOOTING AUTO for CONNECTION MODE in the camera menus." But as I explained above, I have already selected that in the camera menus. Any ideas? If I don't need to use the features of Fujifilm X Webcam software (which isn't working for me anyhow), can I just connect the X-S10 directly to my Macbook Pro using HDMI? (The Macbook Pro has an HDMI port.) Or do I need a capture card like this?
  3. Is there any update here? I just bought an X-S10 specifically to use as a webcam. Will it work with the Fuji webcam software, and output full resolution?
  4. I just got my X-Pro2 yesterday. It's an incredible camera. Here's what I like about it, compared to my X-T1: Joystick. Not only for easier AF point selection, but because it frees up the 4 buttons on the D-pad I assigned to select AF points on the X-T1. This allows me to quickly select drive mode, film simulation, AF area, and Auto ISO setting (by default, the "right" D-pad button is mapped to white balance, but I changed it). Speed. This camera finally feels on par with DSLR performance. Everything is super snappy. With the 35/2 mounted I have absolutely no complaints about AF speed, and it is more accurate than my 5DIII was. The EVF is smaller, but refresh is incredible. 3 Auto ISO settings. This is a game changer for me, and it was something I really missed from my 5DIII when I first switched to the X-T1. I have three settings for various subject types that I can easily access now. Slightly larger size. It just feels more solid than the X-T1, which I like. Dual SD card slot. This allows me to shoot Acros JPG on one card, and RAW on the other. So much better for my workflow. Acros. It's everything everyone else has said it is. Now I just need to figure out whether it makes sense for me to keep it, or wait for the X-T2. I do like the tilt screen on my X-T1, and I've come to love EVFs (which I never thought would happen), so I'm not sure that having an OVF really matters to me. It's an impossible decision to make now, since we don't know how the X-Pro2 and X-T2 will differ. Given that the X-T1 is still a great camera, it would probably be wise to return the X-Pro2 and wait to see how the X-T2 will differ before making a decision. But that will be hard to do! Here's a quick snap with Acros from yesterday:
  5. Thanks! I will try Acros G. Yesterday I snapped some shots with Acros Std with +2 highlights and +2 shadows. Here's one:
  6. Just curious to know what highlight, shadow, sharpness, etc. settings people are using for Acros?
  7. There are really only a couple of improvements that I want, and I'd be a completely happy camper: Faster AF (single shot is pretty darn good now, but continuous is still lacking IMO) AF points all across the frame and better face/eye tracking Higher resolution That's really it. I'm in love with the fast, lightweight, incredible primes, the manual controls, and the experience of shooting with the X-T1 and X100T.
  8. I definitely feel the same way. And like you, I've hung on to the 5DIII + f/2.8 zooms. I'm 100% satisfied with the X-T1 plus fast primes compared to 5DIII + fast primes. But I see a pretty big difference in terms of DOF control with the 5DIII f/2.8 zooms. And while the size difference between the Fujifilm + f/2.8 zooms and the 5DIII + f/2.8 zooms is notable, it's not as big as the difference with primes on both systems.
  9. I bought an X100T as a complement to my 5DIII a few months ago. At first, I struggled with the slower AF and lack of functions compared to my 5D. But now it has been weeks since I've even touched the Canon. Every time I want to shoot I find myself reaching for the X100T. Why? In part because it's just so much more fun to use. And because of that, I find myself making better pictures with it. Here are just a few situations recently when I chose the X100T instead of the 5D: Outside in bright, mid-day sunlight. I find the built-in ND filter, leaf shutter, and built-in flash (for fill) to be indispensable in these conditions. Anytime I was going to be walking or out and about for a long period. For example, we rented some kayaks and paddled a couple of miles to a beach. I didn't want to lug my 5D in the kayak, but the X100T with OEM leather case attached to Luma shoulder strap was perfect. Another example was on a relatively long hike. Inside in poor light. Again, having a built-in flash was really helpful. At my daughter's friend's birthday party. This was both indoor and outdoor, a combination of several challenging lighting conditions, and a group of people I didn't know super well. I knew the X100T sensor would handle the light better, and I didn't want to bring a big, bulky camera to a gathering like that. I wanted to use the X100T's silent shutter as well. But of course it isn't just the user experience that makes the X100T so great. The image files it produces have a distinct look that strongly appeals to me. The natural colors (especially skin tones, which is crucial for my subject matter), the subtle tonal transitions, the "film-like" quality (yes, I know that phrase is overused but I struggle to describe it any other way). What's interesting is that other people that don't know much about photography also notice these qualities. They may have a hard time putting them into words, but they notice. There are other features I love, and have a hard time living without now, such as the ability to spot meter on any selected AF point. This is a game changer for me, as I often shoot moving subjects in manual and this makes it practical to properly expose the subject without recomposing and losing the shot. And the added bonus is that with the EVF, I can see the exposure changing in real time. I still have the 5DIII plus 24-70 II and 70-200 IS, as well as a Sigma 50A. I love the fast AF (especially continuous) and shallow DOF this system affords me. But I just don't find myself using it much anymore. So I've taken the plunge and have ordered an X-T1 + 35/1.4. I'm going to use it for a while along with the X100T. If I like it, next step will be getting an f/2.8 24-70 equivalent. If I shoot with all of that for a few months and never find myself going for the 5DIII, I may switch over completely. Of course, a lot of the things I love about the X100T are unique to it, not general to Fuji, so it will be interesting to see how I like the X-T1.
  10. How far off are they? I'm in a similar position. I have the X100T and 5DIII. Just ordered an X-T1 + 35/1.4 as a way of trying it out. I'm so in love with my X100T that I'm thinking I might really enjoy the X-T1, but my concern is the AF speed for moving subjects. (I mostly photograph my daughter, who is 4 years old and never stops moving.)
