I joined this Forum in May, but have only started posting here this week.   I've been shooting with Leicas since the mid-1970s, starting with an M3 then M6, M7, M8, M9 and Monochrom, all of which I

The specifications of the X-Pro 2 sound exceptional - pretty much everything any of us have asked for. I'm a tiny bit disappointed in the price, even knowing it was going to be expensive, I had hoped

If one is a terminal klutz who routinely destroys cameras, knocking off external controls, driving buttons into the camera body, then I suppose a fully articulated LCD may be a bad idea. It actually has the advantage of being able to be turned against the camera body when not needed making it far less vulnerable than a fixed LCD. Over the past decade and a half, I have had a number of each type of LCD and the utility and flexibility far outweighs the potential vulnerability. A catastrophe that would break the LCD would be devastating to the rest of the camera.

 

Neither a deal maker nor breaker, but certainly an incentive to buy.

So ... no back-button AF? Possible deal-breaker for me.

Back to  CaNikon it is then!

 

I don't have a Fuji X for the buttons on the back.

 

I have it so I can select aperture via the lens barrel just like I did in the good old days of film. The days when you had three separate dials for aperture, shutter speed and ASA/ISO. But then, you didn't change ASA/ISO from shot to shot - only from roll of film to roll of film.

 

And focusing was done manually - ahh them's were the days :-)

 

Of course, now I'm spoiled with 47 AF points I can select at the touch of a button if I can't be bothered with manual focusing.

 

TBH - you own a Fuji X because you do not enjoy working with the CaNikon way of doing things...

 

So I wish you well with your new brand of kit - expect your pictures will be of the same quality they are now - just with a different name on the front of the camera!

Can’t please everyone all the time if any brand would set out to do that, they would miserably fail. Better profile yourself and please the largest possible market segment that you can handle without creating conflicts within your customer’s base.

 

Fuji owners have a clear preference for the way these cameras operate. Other cameras operate in a different way. They please other people.

 

Unicuique suum

    • Fan of X-Trans since P&S days Is RGB or RGGB better mosaics than Fujifilm's GBGGRGRB? How many bits of dynamic range and how few fractions of arc-seconds of resolution are needed for the more common pixel mosaics versus the more complicated X-Trans? Moire decreases with pixel size but photopic luminance for color channels and spacial frequency still matters. Debate, now, for your favorite mosaic!
    • Did you say iPhone? Their external mics usually have 4-conductor cables, which aren't directly compatible with anything else. Try an adapter with 3 conductors.
    • Welcome to  our forum! But I don't see an attached photo.
    • Greetings, Although my friends say I take good photos with my smart phone (Samsung S9+), I have forever wanted to learn the ropes of photography and finally pulled the trigger on a camera I think I can grow with, the X-T4. I'm mostly interested in still nature shots although I do enjoy documenting the dark crevices of a city from time to time. I'm looking forward to learning how to use my camera manually and will enjoy the insights in this forum. Attached is a beach photo I took with my phone. Dale
