Hi all, 

I am looking at buying a used x-t2 because I have heard great things about them. I am nit long in the photography game . I know there is no automatic mode on this camera and I have learnt to use aperature priority on my nikon , not fully but nearly there. So my question is can this camera be set to an automatic mode of I feel I want to let the camera do the work . Regarding setting the priority mode i take it i just put the SS to A  and ISO set to auto and use the aperture on the lense ring ? 

 

Thanks

Sure. The x-t2 works in automatic mode too. You have to select the shutter speed  in auto and chose also the aperture of the diaphragm in automatic mode on the lens

You didn't mention which lenses you use, so bergat is correct about setting the aperture on the lens, if you use XF lenses. For XC lenses (no aperture ring), you set the aperture with the front command dial, so to set an XC lens to auto, turn the command dial beyond the smallest aperture, and you will see the readout change color and display your wide-open aperture value. Your readout will also then display "A" in the lower left of your information display. Voila! Automatic Mode.

    • It all depends on what you want and need, a cheap option with TTL is the Nissin i-40 as mentioned above if you use manual flash (which I would recommend) Youngnuo is a very affordable option also offering remote triggers for off camera use.  I have the nissin i-40 whish is easy to use and offers TTL and a couple of Youngnuo Flashes with remote triggers.

    • (From an older inquiry I responded to here) I bought the pair listed below. Both are made by Godox but are rebranded house brands from Adorama. B&H also has Godox rebranded house brands though I don’t know their name for it. The reason I went with Godox is they are inexpensive and rated very high on multiple websites.  I first bought the pair as Godox branded but the warranty was a joke. The flash and off camera support both had a card insert explainin
