Hi, deciding between two used cameras

Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm Edoardo, 25, Italian.

I used to shoot with my Canon 200D but now I'm into buying a new camera and I think Fujifilm will be the next one. I'm a hobbyist so I do not make profit with the camera.

I'm deciding between x-t30 ii vs x-t3. Where I live their price in the second hand market is comparable, there isn't too much difference. x-t3 it's a superior camera obviously but I'm afraid of loosing the classic neg. film recipe and the portability of the x-t30 ii. I'm not particularly interested in the video features. Can someone help me choosing between these two cameras?

Hmm - I used to have the original X-T30 and X-T3 - and as you say you get extra features with the X-T3 versus portability.

If things like weather sealing, two card slots, better viewfinder and tilting screen are priorities go with the X-T3 - but if you want something that is almost pocketable (at least with lenses like the 27mm) go with the X-T30 II - they are both good cameras. 

The X-T30 II also has the complete auto function that is handy if you are lending the camera to someone else who hasn't had time to learn the controls.

Have you had each in hand? Size of camera body, couples with your hands might make or break which one you go with. Personally I cannot use an X-TXX model far too small. Then there is balance considerations depending on what lenses you'll be using, certain models are a better match than others on smaller or larger bodies.

    • I was laying in bed and heard a hooting outside my window and was able to get a shot of this guy.  The conditions were terrible, 1am, overcast and starting to rain so it was extremally dark.  400mm, ISO 12800, f5.6 SS 1.5s and heavily processed.  All I could make out was a dark shadow in the branches once my eyes adjusted.  The wind was also picking up so I couldn't lower the shutter speed anymore to drop the ISO.   I had to use manual focus and kept firing off shots slowing adjusting the focus each time time until it seemed in focus.  The photo is is obviously horrible but it's fun finally having some reach and very cool this owl showed up just after getting the lens.  I think I'm going to have to build some owl boxes and put them up around the property. I also need to learn to navigate through the settings in the dark.

    • Have you done all of these: - Set the Drive dial on top of the camera to Bracketing (BKT) - In the Shooting Menu => Drive Setting => Bkt Setting => Choose the three film simulations you want to use and (most important) - In the Shooting Menu => Drive Setting => Bkt Setting => Bkt Select : Choose Film Simulation  
    • You have Clarity in the Image Quality menu set to something other than zero
    • I use back button focusing on X-T5 but only lock AF using Switch option. I have set both AF ON and AEL buttons to AF ON because I kept pressing the wrong button accidentally and I let the camera take care of AE Lock when shutter half-pressed. BTW I think Fujifilm could do also do a better job of locating the other Fn buttons particularly the one next to the shutter button as it is really difficult to get to. I;d prefer them all in a vertical line on the front so can easily feel which one I'm pressing!
    • Can anyone provide me with the answer. I am new to fujifilm camera.  I am using the XT4 and in single shot mode, everytime, I take a shot, the Lcd screen will display "storing" and I have to wait for the message to disappear before I can take the next shot! Is there a way to turn this off.
