  3. The raw files are usually around 58-59 MB per file and the larger jpegs are usually around 12-14 MB per file. You might consider several "medium" sized cards if you do not want 'all of your eggs in one basket' as the saying goes. Nowadays, the cards are pretty reliable, so tha old saying does not have as much weight as it used to. Welcome to the forum.
  4. Here is a short segment explaining some good and bad things about each of the shutter types Fujifilm uses. https://fujifilm-x.com/en-us/exposure-center/types-of-shutters/ Your X-T10 does not have all of the different types, but give each of those it does have a try and see if you like them. Enjoy your new camera!
  5. https://app.fujifilm-dsc.com/en/manual/x-t5/about_this_camera/display/#lcd Scroll down to the section called Choosing a Display Mode. You have some options as to what shows up where. Also, just for completeness, make sure you are not blocking the eue sensor, that will turn off the lcd. Welcome to the forum.

  7. Well it could be some oddity from the electronic shutter, or image stabilizers, I have read from several sports photographers that turn off IS, etc. regardless of which manufacturer makes the camera. Or it could be as simple as needing more DOF. You could try turning on subject tracking and head over to the airport and methodically test that as well as the several other things that were mentioned. But without any images to see the issues, we are pretty much flailing around, stumbling in the dark -so to speak- if something works it would be a one off bit of luck rather than a deliberate understood fix for the problem.
  8. Ah, okay, you are panning while hand-holding and not while using a panning tripod. You mention you are using the electronic shutter. That may cause you a bit of trouble: https://fujifilm-dsc.com/en-int/manual/x-h2s/menu_shooting/shooting_setting/ scroll down to the Shutter Type section for the notes on shooting moving subjects. I have heard that increasing the fps does make the focusing sensor work better, because it takes more samples, but I do not know for certain one way or the other. Just to cover all bases, have you considered using a smaller aperture (higher f-stop number)? Even with zone focusing, too small of a f-stop number will still blur things outside the immediate focus area, which can be tricky to center on a moving object. Using the idea of shutter speeds twice the focal length should still work, that is what folks did before IS, OIS and IBIS came along.😀
  9. To answer your question, if you are using a Fujifilm lens with OIS, turning off the OIS switch on the lens will also turn off IBIS. If you are using a lens without OIS, you will be able to turn IBIS on and off in the menu: Shooting Setting > IS Mode. What you are describing sounds odd though, are you trying to take a shot while panning or are you moving the camera and then waiting a bit for things to settle down and then taking the shot? Nowadays some folks claim that you do not need to turn off the image stabilizers when you are using tripods, even going so far as to say that if the tripod is low grade, then it will still transmit small vibrations which you can avoid by having IBIS / OIS turned on. Yet others say it is still best to turn the is stuff off while using tripods. p.s. welcome to the forum.
  10. Welcome to the forum. The 7Artisans’ lens is wide, but if you are looking for ultra-wide, think of 16mm as being “long”. Tamron makes great stuff, but there are many excellent ultra-wides available now, it just depends on what you want. I have one cine lens and have used several others, their iq is fantastic and are every bit as sharp as one could ask out of them. You do have to get used to the gears (on the focus and aperture rings for the pullers) and using t-stops instead of f-stops, but everything works smoothly and the results look fine. They do cost more, sometimes a lot more, than their non-cine equivalents.

  12. It also depends on the camera, Fujifilm has changed the number of sensels and their locations in the X-T line as new generations of sensors are released, for example: https://fujifilm-x.com/global/products/cameras/x-t3/feature-autofocus/ It would not be difficult to hide the masked photo-site bring darker, just boost the amplification that @BobJ is explaining, then make allowances for any noise being introduced and the resulting pixel will look the same as the surrounding ones. But bringing out how they are doing that may require reading their patent applications or white papers.
