Own XT3-Won an a73. Keep or sell?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. This is my first post so i’d Like to introduce myself to the forum.

so here is my situation. I own an XT3 and really like it. I’ve got the 14mm, 35mm f2, 18-55mm, 55-200mm and the MCEX11. I feel like it’s a pretty decent kit right now.

I recently won a Sony a73 w/ 28-70mm as a prize ($0 spent totally free) so I was really excited. I have not used the Sony at all. Brand new no shutter actuations so it’s pretty much worth open box price to the right buyer.

my dilemma is should I keep it as an awesome second camera, being full frame and great auto focus for stills. Or sell it and put the $ towards more Fuji lenses? I’ve really been thinking about the 100-400mm with the 1.4 teleconverter to expand my wildlife opportunities.

Always having a backup camera is nice and full frame as an option doesn’t hurt. But it’s a totally different ecosystem.

thoughts?

    • I have only been able to get the XWebcam and XWebcam2 to work on my Macbook Pro )mid 2012, Catalina) with QuickTime Player Capture video without controls of the XWebcam software and with XWebcam/XWebcam2.  I have been able to get it to work with Zoom only. Not FaceTime, not Skype, not Google Meeting. My old Logitech Webcam work with everything also.
    • 4k 60fps 400Mbps means you're using the H265 codec. It's very cpu/gpu intensive. My 2016 MBP struggles to play H265 smoothly but my main editing machine plays them back fine, so this could be the issue you're seeing. Try H264, which will limit you to 200Mbps or maybe create proxies.
    • With the new 4.0 firmware, I found that I have to press the shutter button halfway down, before the eye-AF works. Before the upgrade, I could just snap away, and eye AF always worked. As I mostly work with children, I do not have the time to pre-focus every shot, so for me it is worse than before. Is there a setting I can change to rectify this? Thx
    • I have the same problem. After Google, forums, etc. I found that I have to pre-focus first, before taking the picture. Before the upgrade, I could just snap away, and eye AF always worked. As I mostly work with children, I do not have the time to pre-focus every shot, so for me it is also worse than before.
