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.

    • So there is no compability at all?
    • I can't speak for the X-T4 but I currently have an X-T3 and X100V and have previously owned an X-T30, X-T2, X100F and X100T (that's three generations of Fuji sensors). I shoot with my cameras set to RAW but then use X Raw Studio to 'develop' the images I want to keep so although I am technically using camera JPEGs I have the flexibility to adjust exposure, WB, film sim etc. before I process the JPEG. For me, I enjoy the constraints of a limited set of adjustments and there's a magic about t
    • I own a Ronin SC. Compatibility with my XT-30 similar to if it was a brick. Anyway I see no issues, Ronin SC works well as a gimbal without a specific DJI features. I start and stop filming pushing a button on a camera. Focus wheel works well with all my lenses.
    • Just to provide a balance of views, I haven't missed the D-pad at all and yet I've also disabled all touchscreen functions, which to me feel gimmicky and unsuited to a camera like this. Fujifilm has to walk a very thin line in balancing the wants and needs of so many photographers and I think they do a good job overall. If you're regularly changing white balance, and film sims etc. on the fly then I can understand why the D-pad is important and a touchscreen replacement wouldn't cut it for me ei
    • Matt, I have this lens and have taken many thousands of shots with it, mainly sports pictures. I'd say that somewhere in the high 90% of the shots are tack sharp. I use AFC, IOS on and off, and hold the lens and my X-T2 on a monopod. Some of the games are at night with stadium lighting and many are in bright sun and have no issues with sharpness. Seems like your lens needs to go in for service.
