Who shoots video on this forum?

Who shoots video on this forum? - I do, a lot. So I would like to know how much interest is there here. Please introduce yourself, saying

  • what type of video you do and/or would like to do,
  • what is your experience level
  • what gear do you use (both Fuji and accessories, like cage, external recorder, audio gear, etc.)
  • what do you edit on

Just to kick off with me:

  • I use X-T4 and X-T3 and choice of about 20 Fuji lenses, but not theMKX zooms (unfortunately)
  • been shooting video for about 5 years and have been the president of the local video club, and have a sort of a YouTube channel
  • I have done drama and docos and events
  • also use a DJI drone, DJI Osmo Pocket, Sony AX100 4k camcorder and iPhone 11 Pro
  • edit on FCPX on an iMac Pro

Ok, let's see if I am the only one here? :)

I use my X-T3 almost exclusively for video in my real estate business.  Use it in conjunction with the 18 - 55 f2.8-4.0 and 10-24 f/4.  All videography is done on Ronin SC.  Very light weight combination and am able to use for extended periods.  Can not recommend this combination enough.


Updated to camera is an X-H2S and gimbal is an RS2.

Hybrid shooter and non-professional. Mainly recreational travel photography/videography. I've just recently jumped into the Fuji world. Just recently stepped-up to interchangeable lens cameras - was using point-and-shoot cameras/mobile phones previously. 

Coincidentally, a trip to New Zealand and Australia (late 2019/early 2020 pre-pandemic) was my first "real world" use of a mirrorless camera.

Recently, I've been trying out macro photography and YouTube. Also, I'm trying to "salvage" older video footage taken with point-and-shoot or video cameras: Canon Vixia HF100, various Canon PowerShot cameras, various Sony Cyber-shot cameras, and an Olympus TG-3.


  • Sony a6400 | SELP18105g f4 OSS | SELP1655 f3.5-56 OSS | Sigma 30 f2.8 Art DN
  • Fujifilm X-T200 | XC15-45 f3.5-5.6 OIS
  • Fujifilm X-S10 | XF18-55 f2.8-4 OIS
  • Sony Cyber-shot HX99 30x Zoom - if you want to travel light and not carry monstrous lenses and have that 720mm reach
  • Samsung S10+
  • iFootage monopod, Neewer tripod
  • Rode mic


With Fujifilm colour science and Film Simulations, I'm trying to use footage straight-out-of-camera. I do use a variety of tools where the need arises:

  • VSDC
  • Luminar
  • Windows Photos and Video Editor
  • Da Vinci Resolve
  • HItFilm Express

I am Nikolai, a self taught hybrid shooter from Norway with a background in arts and graphic design, and I work for the City of Oslo (the photo on the front page is by me, as of March 22, 2023). I deliver a wide arrange of photography and video. I document the city, city life and its inhabitants, but also anything shoot from portraiture and corporate head shots to interior photography and even food photography (I made a cook book for internal communication purposes). Attached is an example of a bus ad, 2.5 meters tall. It was so sharp, you could read the logo on the shirt!

The videos I do are mainly for social media and are basically presentations or information for the public or staff, interviews and documentary style stuff for showcasing our projects. This is an example of street interviews I did during the pandemic: https://www.facebook.com/Oslo/videos/149919900421495

I use the X-S10 with the Fujinon xF 16-55 f/2.8 and Fujinon XF 50-140 f/2.8. I record videos internally (8-bit, so no Log), using the Eterna profile with DR set to 400 for maximum dynamic range when needed, and find it more than good enough for my needs. I edit in Adobe Premiere Pro. I sometimes help friends out with music videos and photography too. Below is an example of a video shot hand held with the X-S10 and the unstabilized 16-55 f/2.8 and 50 f/2.0 lenses.

What do you think?

Greetings, fellow X shooters around the world, from Columbus OH.

Happy owner of both XT3 and XT4 and regular video shooter.

Migrated a few years back from several Pentax formats including med.format film. There is none to compare with these Fuji's IMHO. Looking fwd to interacting with you all in coming years.

    • HI Rufo, I have changed procedures.  I now use the colors space transform (CST) as my first node.  The CST is set up as follows: - Apply the CST effect to the first node. - Color Space is Rec 2020 - Input gamma is FLog - Output color space is Rec 709 - Output gamma is Gamma 2.4 All other nodes to grade the clip proceed the node that contains the color space transform. Hope this helps. Don

    • Interesting, and a bit subtle. I also think it'd be better to activate on a half press. But there seems to be good reasoning behind a number of other choices, so I wonder if there's a good reason behind this one and we're just not seeing it. To some degree IS goes on and off like AF does, but this is an exception, isn't it?
    • I couldn't find my manual so downloaded a PDF copy and did some searching.  From p146 of the manual, regarding Shooting Only stabilisation: "Image stabilization enabled only when the shutter button is pressed halfway (focus mode C) or the shutter is released." So it appears that the camera is 'working as intended' and that in AF-S the stabilisation mechanism kicks in only as you release the shutter. I think I would prefer it to activate on a half press, like it does in AF-C.
    • Sometime a short break can help to phrase things so that they do not sound annoying, Well that is the hope anyway, so here goes. Having that meter would be nice as well as having the histogram. But having them or not is a minor consideration in terms of what you are wanting to do because the app does not work with intervalometers. The only way you can get a time lapse sequence using the app is to manually click the shutter button, wait then click it again and so on. Even if the meter were there, you would need extremely fast reflexes to see and react to a lighting change by changing the settings and then going back to clicking the shutter button. Doing that for hours would be a feat indeed. The equipment you mention does this by analyzing several past images and predicting what settings to apply to the next incoming image. Right now the app has the live view which will tell you if an area is over or under exposed, but as far as what you are wanting to do without being able to connect the app to an intervalometer, well …
