Hi there, i would like some opinions about fuji reliability/durability and real user experience. I'm a brazilian portrait/fashion/editorial photographer and i'm thinking about mirrorless because the weight and portability. I don't need the WR of the XT1. The options are: • Used Fuji XT1 (the seller is the 2nd owner and don't know how much clicks [professional use with weddings] ) + grip + 3 batteries (1124 US) • New Fuji XT10 with 1 year warranty (1124 US) • Used Xpro1 7k clicks (725 US) The Fuji Jpgs are beautiful and the lenses are somewhat affordable and have high quality. The cameras are beautiful too (the xpro is gorgeous). My questions are: • It's dangerous buy used fuji cameras? What about the shutter and price of hardware repair? • Better a xt10 new or a xt1 used? The body quality of the xt1 are really more sturdier?Or it's better the used xpro1 and buy more lenses? • The 16mp APSC would work fine in the fashion industry and with large prints? (I did a lot of research about pro photographers using fuji, but most of them are endorsed) Thank you very much!
Hello, I am seriously thinking it's about time to upgrade my X-Pro1 to an X-T2, I don't need latest gimmicks nor super high res or movie features, for extra MP I use a FF Nikon camera which has plenty of pixels, Fuji is for lighter shooting like hiking, travel etc and as such, given how many people upgrading to the X-T3 the T2 reached a price tag which fits my budget. I see many T2 on American photography boards for sale but I live in the EU and the only reliable source I know is an online store in the UK (dunno if allowed here to past a link or a name so I just won't this time), is anybody aware of other trusted sources within the EU borders for used gear? Grazie Giovanni
I wanna buy X-T3, but only can afford used one. What should I check first, and what any other possible weak points of camera in term of use etc, which I should be aware of? I'm interesting also in evf behavior in low light (my previous experience with 2.36 evf in other camera in low light was a bit painful, a lot of digital noise so I barely was able to (manually) focus), and since I like to shoot in low light, what's the possible slowest shutter speed I can get without blur handheld with 50mm f/2 wr lens, for example? And generally, how good non ois wr lens and is lack of ois/ibis in low light is actually that important? I also heard couple doubtful messages about 50mm f/2 being "not that sharp". Also, how much if any weather sealing gonna be affected after repair, after shutter replacement for example (and in any other cameras, not only Fuji)? And the last question is, is there any simple and fast method to crop to 4:3 ratio in photo (I just prefer 4:3)? Like in camera menus or something, or at least to put on some framing grid etc (it's really simple in any post, but I wanna see my 4:3 during the actual photo shooting if it's possible)? Afaik some other cameras have 4:3 mode, and I didn't find that Fuji have one and I hope it'll be someday implemented with firmware update. Thanks for answers.
