Why ! You don’t like selfie screen?

It's not that I don't like them.  It's more that I HATE THEM!!!  I use my LCD on my XT-3 and XT-2 at different angles every time I go out.  It's how I get into close spots and get the shots I like to get.  Using a selfie screen makes the camera twice as wide and impossible to reach the angles I normally shoot.

If you don´t need and use them fully articulating screens are just ridiculous! I totally agree: if there is another absurd display as in the x-pro 3 or x-t4 the new one won`t be mine.

Not arguing with anyone about their preferences, but I love the fully articulating screen and will not buy a Fujifilm camera that doesn't have one. I passed on the recent X-T3 sale because it did not have one.

Viewfinders are the most important item for me and the X-Pro3 is a camera I am looking to buy on sale, after the X-H2 is announced; unless of course it offers one better with the X-H2.  LCD's are awful for anything in my view but reviewing pictures taken.

Smeared scratched LCD screens with those absurd screen protectors, inability to see in strong sunlight, are a joke compared to a real first class viewfinder as on the X-Pro3 and I wish Fujifilm would advance them and place them on more cameras.

No problem however, understanding how others think the opposite.

I originally came from canon cameras, that had the same articulating screens, and i hated them.

They are useless in windy land/seascape situations, where they effectively double the profile of the body, causing camera shake.

While it would be nice if Fuji could produce bodies with either an articulating or hinged rear screen, its probably very impractical, and expensive.

Unfortunately video vloggers make the most noise, so the rest of use have to put up with it, or find another manufacturer that doesn't use these type of screens.

I've been using Fujiflm ever since i purchased a X-T1 in 2014, if i have to upgrade my T2, it properly wont be Fuji.

I bought an X-T2 to try my hands on X-T camera and like it a lot. Its tilting LCD screen is very sturdy. The tilting screen is great for street photography too, which  I don't have on my X100F. Although I don't need it personally, I do understand the need for fully articulating screen for folks who use it to create videos on youtube (and other applications ...).

1. Integrate the "selfie" feature into the display's arm and limit its flexibility for people behind the camera or,

2. Create self-standing selfie monitors between 50 mm and 300 mm diagonal that plug into the video port, run off their own batteries and show all of the camera info and live image as if it were a viewfinder. People can use a remote or phone application to control the camera when facing it.

What uses are there from three megapixels between Sony's 43 Mpix and X-H2's 40 Mpix?

1. Cropping for lens quality?

2. Intellectual property gap?

3. Mosaic (X-trans) efficiency vs Bayer?

4. Adding 1.5 more Mpix of phase-detect elements or (O_O) time-of-flight array elements; pure fantasy, I know.

    • Ah, that's probably what it is then - I'm using a slow exposure and no flash. I just have the 1st and 3rd options on my menu. I bought a mirrorless camera because I thought it would be better than my dslrs but it's pretty useless for what I wanted it for. No live view/tethering  And can't even use the electronic shutter  Yet I can take a 4k video. It doesn't make sense that I can do that but can't take a still.  Louise  
    • That is odd, there are very few other settings that limit using es. Having a flash unit attached is one, but I would have thought that would also keep you from using ms+es. Mines does this: Have you upgraded to the most recent firmware? This may sound drastic, have you copied you settings down somewhere and tried a full reset?
    • Thanks for the reply. I don't have that choice in my x-t30 menu  It's just MS or ES/MS with ES for fast exposures i.e. 1/4000s Louise
    • I agree with all that's been said above, hence my decision to buy XS10 rather than XT4. The reputation of Pentax was that if it got covered in mud you could wash it under a running tap. I never tried that but was happy to use it in briefly in heavy rain and desert sandstorms and never had a problem. I wouldn't be that confident in such circumstances without weather sealing and would use poly bag and chamois even in less extreme conditions. It's often the small doors covering SD slots, batteries etc that aren't sealed, and some times cable and microphone or remote shutter sockets have no cover at all. Sealing a pop-up flash isn't easy either. Worth protecting those points if you're out in weather you want to protect yourself from.  
    • https://fujifilm-dsc.com/en-int/manual/x-t30/menu_shooting/shooting_setting/index.html Scroll down to Shutter Type. It is in the shooting menus setup, you can choose between manual shutter, electronic shutter or both together.
