X-T5 for hobby


Recommended Posts

The flip screen on the XT5 will be good for street photography. It is nice to be able to take photos from a lower perspective, not just at eye level. I have used an XE2 for street photography for several years and the advantage of the “rangefinder” style is that some people will ask if it is a Leica! 
The additional resolution of the XT5 will give you more flexibility if you choose to crop an image.

I have  an XPRO-2 and an XT-5 (recently upgraded  from  and XT-3).  I didn't make the upgrade to XPRO-3 or XT-4 because I didn't see  fundamental improvement in the X-Pro, and the XT-4 was tilting too far to the video side of the  house with it's flippy screen and such. I have zero interest in making  video.

The XT-5 is a seriously capable camera, but if you are looking for casual shooting - handheld  camera that  doesn't shout  PHOTOGRAPHER!! I'd look at for a clean, gently used XPRO-2 with the exceptionally sharp,  compact and weather sealed "Fujicron" primes like  the 23mm f/2  and 50mm f/2.  If we have the  patience we might someday see an XPRO-4 that has the megapixels and processor of the XT-5, and in the mean time enjoy the very capable XPRO-2

    • Interesting question - I don't have an X-T200 to test but I'd suggest you try setting the camera so that its writing a jpg only - so that you could be sure it would write to the card in under 2 seconds - if you get the same problem it would imply its something other than the buffer.
    • Welcome to our forum. I‘ve removed your personal e-mail address from your comment to prevent spam etc. Concerning your question, it‘s unlikely that the buffer of the X-T200 can hold 50+ photos. There must be another reason for the behavior and I supect something like reorganizing data on the card and/or creating new folders. 
    • Thanks. As it turns out I list some stuff for sale once at a very similarly named forum.... 
    • Hello Everyone. I am a total newbee so I apologize up front if i violate and etiquette. Here is my question. Symptom: I have a controller that operates the shutter on my Fuji X-T200 camera so that it takes a picture every 2 seconds in sync with other events. After about 50 +- pictures are taken, a red dot comes on the camera display and it wont take another picture, until it finishes counting down from 5-7 seconds and it is now out of sync with what I have been doing by 1-2 events. The memory card I use is a SanDisk Extreme Pro 170 MB/s 128GB.   Questions: Q1. My first guess is that it is a buffer filling up and then flushing to my SD memory card. Is this correct?   Q2. Is there a way to configure the settings in my camera so it won’t buffer? But will store the picture to the SD immediately after its taken.   Q3. Will a faster memory SD card speed up the process? ( I think probably not as it is probably the buffer memory speed of the camera that is the limiting factor.)   Q4. The best solution is if I can find a signal or some sort, electrical, relay contact, blue-tooth or wireless, that tells me the camera is ready to take a (the next) picture.   Thank you so much, Sincerely, Jim Towne
