Just ditched the Sony A7r II for an X-T3. I hope it was a smart move.


Recommended Posts

I realized I didn't need all that resolution and that there was something about the colors that I didn't like. They were saturated and all but not to my liking. I am also a jpg guy. The sony was a very low noise high iso camera but the images wouldn't pop. 

So I thought that Fuji would be what I am looking for beautiful colors and good jpg's.

I also contemplated pentax but I prefer the mirrorless camera.

For many this could be considered a downgrade, and not being able to use my vintage lenses properly is also a drawback but the sony just didn't cut it for me.

let me also tell you that I am a film guy too.

From what you told , you will enjoy using Fujifilm . Xt-3 has the classic vintage feel in using , also Fujifilm jpg are nice compared to other systems . Wish you a happy photography year ahead with Fujifilm .you can get adapers for vintage lens ,most are compatible with Fujifilm x Mount . you can add autofocus to vintage lens too using DJI LiDAR autofocus .so , enjoy the Fujifilm experience ! , Welcome to the Fujifilm family .

Be careful, here. The human brain is 50% image processor. Low noise can be the reason your images do not pop but film simulation can add graininess by introducing spacial and chromatic noise. Our brains pick up on this pointillism. Add temporal noise to the array for even more realism.

Some things can be done to abnormally-perfect sensor scans to make them more real-life. That is what Fujifilm does with film simulation.

    • Nice. Which one was taken with X100F?
    • Father and Sons in Yellow Shirts - Dhaka, Bangladesh Fujifilm X-T3 - XF18-55mm f2.8-4 R LM OIS - Fujifilm Classic Negative Color Film Sim  
    • I can confirm this. My X100V had the same as do some of my other XF WR lenses. The fact that some lenses do and others don't (same lens) leads me to believe that Fuji has quite wide production tolerances. Over the past 7 years I've had (partly still have) 13 different XF lenses. 4 of them needed replacement due to production failures (loose aperture or focus rings, crooked mount...). Though I really like Fuji cameras, to me that is a bit too often...
    • It's quite a difference. As a basis the Leica Q2 already has a very good 47Mp full-frame sensor paired with one of the best lenses ever made (a 28mm Summilux). By leaving out the color array filter on the sensor and optimizing the sensor lenses for monochrome images, you get an incredibly sharp and contrast rich monochrome image. Without the color array filter you also boost the low light performance and expand the dynamic range of the sensor by approx. 2 stops. In the meanwhile, I couldn't resist and purchased a Q2 Monochrome. I'm not disappointed. Though my X-Pro produces very nice Acros files, the Q2 Monochrome is a different league (also in price to be fair). I usually shoot monochrome for my personal work, but to be able to shoot at ISO25000 and have files as clean as an X-Pro at ISO1600 is amazing. At normal ISO levels, the level of detail and the tonality of the Q2 files is stunning. Both for the jpegs out-of-camera and the DNG raw files via Capture One.
    • I use Blender, it's an open source program, free to use and many good tutorials on YouTube. The program is also used by professional moviemakers. It does the same or more as the apps recommended above. link to Blender Edit: Davinci Resolve is another free video editor worth trying.
