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.

I was at a Fuji Day at a local camera store and I got a chance to speak with the Fuji rep for our side of the country. While he did not spill any details about the X-H2, he said that Fujirumors, despite not being directly affiliated with Fujifilm, has only been wrong once in their Fuji camera predictions in the last ten years and it's not this camera.

I put myself on the waiting list at the store right then and there.

FujiRumors has reported that one of the two X-H2 models being introduced will be called the X-H2s. The comment thread is rife with speculation as to what the "S" means. My bet is "Stills" because using the "S" designation for the video version is a Sony thing.

It could also stand for "Super" Carlos with the larger sensor and higher frame rate.

    • I don’t have it as I went for the literal bag of primes (16, 23, 35 & 50) but the XF 16-55 f2.8 is well regarded as a “bagful of primes”. 16mm is a 24mm equivalent on the wide end and 55mm is close to an 85mm equivalent. F2.8 gives a good level subject separation/bokeh. Not small or light but plenty of folks sing it’s praises. Dave
    • Not really, unless you want to limit yourself a lot on the image quality. For portraits I would recommend at least an 85mm F/1.4 lens. For landscape photography it depends on whether you want to make panoramas and then the question is which focal length or image effect you want to achieve. There is a lack of more precise information on your part.
    • Does the aperture ring have whole, half or a third gradations?
    • Hi When I was researching impressions of the new Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 R LM WR and how it pairs with different bodies I found very little info and/or images of the lens together with an X-E4 body. I therefore figured I should make a post about it so other people researching the same thing can find these picture and info. I have attached some pictures showcasing the lens on my X-E4 body. One very interesting/sad thing to note is that if the aperture ring is left at the 1.4 mark the auto lock knob/button will actually touch the flat surface on which the camera is placed which is not ideal. This is however not an issue when having the lens hood mounted, if a Peak Design style screw mount is attached or if moving the aperture ring to the 2.0 mark. All these pictures are taken with my phone so they are not really of stellar quality but are probably useful anyway  My overall impression of the lens thus far is really good, it produces very sharp images even fully open. It balances quite well with the X-E4; when actually shooting it feels really good but when carrying it around it is a bit front heavy. I found that there is a dramatic change in carrying comfort if the strap is mounted on the body in a diagonal fashion so to speak, i.e. with one anchor at either side of the body and one at the bottom screw mount. Using this configuration really offsets the balance point when carrying your camera diagonally, sling style.   Also, this is my first post at the forum so ... Hi all
