    Ha yes it is!  Are you using an X-T30 or just similar?

    jerryy reacted to Renzo Ordonselli in Fujifilm X-T1...what this message means?   
    jerry, I think I understand after reading the post above by FX Admin ... the message warns me that, when CL / CH and ES or ES + MS are enabled, the camera will not focus on each shot
    thanks anyway

    I do think that this approach (webcam over usb) should be taken with a view of what the physical limits impose. The X-T30 uses the usb 3 standard which has a theoretical 5.0gb limit — if you plug it into a similar type port on your computer, etc. You can easily run into problems if your computer is sharing that port with other usb devices while trying to push full screen, deep bit-depth, high frame rate video while trying to use those other devices, — your computer may bog down or at least have problems including dropping frames or stuttering. Setting smaller sizes, slower rates, lower bit depth, etc. may be a better choice.
    Even better, use the HDMI connector. You start off with over 10gb data transfer, (this is the starting point, notice the usb connector speed is “up to” which means you normally get that only under ideal circumstances). This may be troublesome if the webcam software expects the camera on the usb port, a lot of those usb webcams are not high quality video capture devices.

    The image captures are strictly video only. As i mentioned, single image capture is not (yet) implemented, though these functions should be feasible in other programs based upon having the features available in the Remote Camera App. for example, gphoto2 --list-config lists a toggle switch that turns bulb capture mode on or off, but it is currently set to read-only mode.
    GPhoto2 is a front end for libgphoto2. The library itself is usually used by the various applications such as the KStars program I wrote about. Those programs tend to not give you direct access to the commands they use, but you can use gphoto2 to get at those:
    http://gphoto.org/doc/remote/
    The documentation is a little open-ended as many open source projects tend to be. You will need to scroll all the way to the end of the page i linked to in my reply to YOUTA to find out the maintainer has added the X-T30's live view capabilities to their listing, but the general documentation has not been updated to reflect that.
    The camera uses the PTP language, so your system may need a generic PTP camera driver to go outside of the Zoom world. I used it in KStars EKOS module to record live view video, the program automatically turned it into the .ser format, and saved it. All i had to do was click on the start / stop buttons. This was with the camera's Connection Setting set to X Webcam, I have not tried the other USB video options (I have read those are there for controlling the camera using gimbals, etc.).

    This sounds like a Windows problem, it works in Linux and as far as I have tested, macOS. 
    I have used KStars with my X-T30 to record videos as .ser files which then can be stacked in programs such as FireCapture. I got the linux setup working first on my desktop system (Mint) and then on my Raspberry Pi (Astroberry) and then a brief test on my mac system.
    If you can get gphoto2 to run on your Windows box, this command:
    gphoto2 --capture-movie --stdout | ffplay - will put up a movie in the viewer for you. I am still waiting for single frame capture — that would help me cut out the current clunky way of using remote camera app as a go between.

    my friend !, the webcam support is only in name.. it doesn't work. that's why i was taking about it !. it shows everything in the camera menu.. but it doesn't work on computer.. at least on windows... since i have tried every way, myself on windows 10 and windows 11... no apps detect camera(in webcam mode).. even the fujifilm webcam app doesn't detect camera...  the fujifilm remote app, works perfect,.,. for live view and image transfer etc... i have taken a star trails recently using that as remote shutter. but the webcam mode.. no luck so far.. and no solution in internet tooo.. i tried many seen in internet.. but never worked... maybe in the next firmware.. fujifilm will give a "working" webcam mode for windows computers.. anyway thanks for saying... wish you a nice day !

    Starting with the v1.40 firmware update, the X-T30 was given some webcam support. This continued in the  v1.41 firmware update. If you use the camera remote app, you can also get single image support (there are still some limitations, but it does work).

    August's full moon goes by a lot of names, including the Sturgeon Moon, the Green Corn Moon, the Raksha Bandhan Moon, Nikini Soya, and the end of the Esala Perahera festival.
    It is called the Sturgeon moon because during this time of the year, there is supposed to be lots of sturgeons out swimming around. Here is a link to some more information:

    jerryy reacted to CatsAreGods in X100V: Great reviews yet used market appears crowded...?   
    I agree, and I think it's due to too many people who buy stuff they see on YouTube videos (or wherever) without doing enough -- or any -- research on what they're buying.
    It seems to be a great camera; just make sure a street retro camera is what you want. Or think of it as an inexpensive Leica, but you can't afford any other lenses for it anyway 😺

    jerryy got a reaction from SETHSIDE 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.

    Perhaps the codec for Fujifilm .RAF (X-S10) was not updated. Try this:
    https://fujifilm-x.com/global/support/download/software/raw-file-converter-ex-powered-by-silkypix/
    Install this one from Fujifilm, it should have all of the up to date codecs.It is free, plus, you get a decent raw converter program.
