Hi Everyone

 

I'm Marcel, from Melbourne, Australia. My current Fuji is the x100 and I recently made a decision to replace my 5D3 with Fuji. So for now, I am preparing to sell my existing Canon gear while I research and test the Xpro2 and wait for the XT2.

 

The x100 is a great camera but I am going to sell because my style of shooting requires faster focus and operation (I mostly shoot street/urban). It's always the case that when new tech comes along we become more aware of the gaps in the older tech.

 

I recently tested the Xpro2 in a local store and I must say that I was really impressed with the SOOC JPGs.  The depth, colour and look of the pictures is the best I have seen SOOC bar none. Once I sell my 5D3 (& accessories/lenses) I am considering the option to buy an Xpro2 and an XT2 as a second body, given I will benefit from lenses that both can use. Anyone already on Xpro2 and XT1? is this overkill or you find the two bodies give you different characteristics that you can apply to your creative process? I currently edit RAW in LR but if JPGs are this good I will be happy to use them where possible.

 

Alternatively I was looking at x70 to replace my x100, then decide on either Xpro2 or XT2. Obviously, I am intending to wait for the release of XT2 before making a purchase. Dilemma is that I tested two x70's already (in store) and haven't had the greatest experiences with the results. First set of pics were suffering from blur - I couldn't understand why auto selected speeds sub 1/18 sec. I think the menu must have been played with but "auto" switch should consider that the user is going to be less savvy - therefore keep speed up to reduce/eliminate shake. I can't see any logical reason to have speeds of 1/13th sec, while keeping iso at 800 and f8. Second attempt (different store) I avoided auto and pulled a dozen test shots, majority in focus. Without any film simulation, I am not seeing the IQ that I would expect from this sensor. Response is better but IQ not better than my x100 (and that's an old camera now).

 

I came across this forum in my hunt to see x70 reviews and shots. From what I see, the camera is capable of nice images but IQ is a little flat. Maybe because I have now seen the Xpro2 capability everything is flat.  I look forward to reading your experiences, so thank you for making this forum/community so interesting.  It's a valuable process in getting the most out of the great Fuji cameras.

 

regards

 

Marcel

      I have just returned home after spending three days in a monastery with two monks. Here is a first draft. What do you think? The plan is returning there over time and trying to find something deeper to tell.

      I have been searching all over and am nearly exhausted ... you too?
      I currently use my xp2 with the fuji app via wifi direct to my iPad air.
      Works great, can do all the normal things, browse camera and remotely operate.
      I like to remote my camera and still be able to review the gallery of images I take but ....
      I long to tether to my laptop and use LR. I don't care if I use the wireless connection/eyefi or a cable. Doesn't matter.
      BUT I still haven't found an article or a video on how to accomplish this simple task.
      You all njwo how easy it was with a Nikon/Cannon so ... 
       
      Anybody here have a simple solution that doesn't involve any third party work arounds?
       
      Thanks in advance,

      Hello,
       
      I am having some trouble with my ERF function on my XPRO 2. It really started after I implemented the 4.00 update so I'm wondering if that has caused it. Since then I have done the 4.01 update and the problem still persists.
       
      After doing a lot of google searches (and forum searches) I found that most people this happened to solved it by setting the AF to "Single Point," so I did the same and the ERF still does NOT function.
       
      Just to be clear the front switch DOES toggle between OVF and EVF with no problem, when I push the switch to the left (toward the lens) the ERF no longer does anything.
       
      I tried to reset everything via the Menu and that did no help either. 
       
      Are there any other settings I should know about to get the ERF to pop up in the corner, or that would keep it from functioning? Or is there a way to factory reset (resetting firmware as well) utilizing more than the options in the menu?
       
       
      Hope someone else out there can help!
       
      Thanks,

      Hi, 
      Fuji has just announced its new Firmware update for X-Pro2 (ver.4.00).
      Few months ago I had a conversation with a Fuji Guy during a Tradeshow and he told me that the coming firmware update on Xpro 2 might affect compatibility with the Godox AD 200 HSS and TTL functions.
      Does someone who own an AD200 had the opportunity to test it with today XPro2 firmware update?
      I plan to buy an AD200 in the coming days and would like to be sure it will correctly work with the new Xpro2 firmware
      Thanks
      Cyril
