Hi, I'm a newbie Astrophotographer and I'm trying to work out how to get the most out of my XT-30. I'm using it in Bulb mode (non Auto), with a cheap intervalometer to give me 1 min plus exposures.
When setting up a image capture session on the intervalomter, I'm having to account for the processing time of each long exposure into my shoot. So for example, if I'm shooting a 59" exposure, I have to then wait whilst the camera "processes" the image, which is also exactly 59 seconds. If I'm shooting a sequence of frames then this makes a 50 frame sequence last (50 x 59") x 2 (2 hours for a total of 50ish minutes of open shutter.
I wondered if anyone was aware of any buffering or burst mode on the camera, which could avoid the processing time after each long exposure? Is there any way to give the capture priority whilst the processing is queued up after the sequence is shot? I'm finding that I'm losing quite a bit of time to processing in my sessions. Forgive me if I'm just being dumb - as I say I'm new to long exposure photography.
Thanks in advance!
Hello. I just acquired a EF X20 Flash. I put it on the hot shoe but my XT2 (firmware 4.40) recognizes it as in sync terminal. So I can only acces the Manual mode (the TTL Mode in Flash Settings is grayed out). The flash does fire on Manual, but the TTL is not working.
When I put the EF X8 Flash, it simply does not even fire.
I am on single shot and mechanic shutter.
Any ideas what might be happening?
Thanks a lot!
Hope you're all well.
My Fuji randomly stopped turning on a few weeks ago. The screen turns on but not completely (as seen on the attachments). Changing to the Viewfinder also doesn't work, shutter doesn't go off...nothing works. When I turn it off, the screen stays on; I have to remove the battery for my camera to shut down. I've interchanged between my 3 batteries multiple times, and the problem persists.
I've looked for solutions on forums, but never found anything that fits. Tried updating the firmware through an SD card but the camera won't even turn on for the update to begin in the first place.
Any tips? I'd love to hear from you guys!
I have a quick question regarding the XT-2. I jumped from a Canon 40D to the XT-2 some time ago. I love the camera and the feel and output are fantastic for me. With that said, I have noticed that I have a harder time (on the Fuji) transferring what I see in my viewfinder to my computer screen. In other words there seems to be a disconnect between what I see in the computer and what I remember being in the viewfinder. I don't think it is a color or exposure issue, maybe a framing? Not quite sure. Do I simply need more experience with the camera? I'm using a 18-55 for both cameras. Thank you.
