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.
Is anyone else having this problem?
My XT2 works beautifully with my Godox flashes (two AD200s and one AD600) when my shutter speed is 500 or higher. But if I drop the shutter speed below 500, the flashes stop firing.
I'm using the Godox XPro-F transmitter.
So what I'm really wanting is "Low Speed Sync" so I can use my Godox flashes at speeds like 1/60, 1/125, 1/250, etc.
Why I do not suspect the transmitter or flashes
I can press the test button on the transmitter and the flashes fire
I can put the same transmitter on my X100s and shoot at any shutter speed and the flashes fire successfully
This makes the XT2 my prime suspect.
Under the flash function setting menu, I do have Sync Mode set to AUTO FP(HSS) but I've tried the other settings with no success either (and didn't expect those to help anyway).
I am in single shot mode and not using bracketing or multi-exposure features.
And it doesn't matter if I manually turn off HSS via the menus on the flash units.
Do you have any suggestions I can try next?
Can you see if you are able to shoot and sync at 1/60 using your XT2 and Godox transmitter and flashes?
Any help or suggestions will be thoroughly appreciated!
I just picked up an XT2 and this is my first Fuji camera, really excited about using it. I've been watching a lot of youtube videos and reading forum post to familiarize myself with the camera and its settings. I am very impressed by the film simulations but really confused on how to use them in conjunction with RAW files. I was under the impression that if I shoot RAW+JPEG(Fine/Norma) with a film simulation selected (e.g. Chrome). Simulation is applied to JPEG only and RAW file is pure raw without any processing that I can edit however I want in post processing. But I took the camera out for the first time and realized the film simulation is applied to both JPEG and RAW. Is there a way to shoot with film simulation applied to JPEG but get unprocessed RAW files from XT2?
Thanks for everyone's help in advance!
I have some challenges concerning he size of the photos I take: no matter what I do, most photos will be under 1MB, some around 1.2-1.4MB. But that seems quite small compared to what I think it should be. Any iPhone shoots bigger!
No matter the camera settings the size does not get much greater. Never had a problem like this before.
Should the jpeg size not be substantial bigger than 1MB on a Fuji X-T2?
Camera: X T2 with basic settings as follows: CC film, size 3:2, quality fine, etc.
I've tried many different setting, does not change much. Tried different cards in both slots, problem still same.
Does any one have an idea what the problem might be and if yes, how to solve it?
Many thanks in adavance,
I am seriously thinking it's about time to upgrade my X-Pro1 to an X-T2, I don't need latest gimmicks nor super high res or movie features, for extra MP I use a FF Nikon camera which has plenty of pixels, Fuji is for lighter shooting like hiking, travel etc and as such, given how many people upgrading to the X-T3 the T2 reached a price tag which fits my budget.
I see many T2 on American photography boards for sale but I live in the EU and the only reliable source I know is an online store in the UK (dunno if allowed here to past a link or a name so I just won't this time), is anybody aware of other trusted sources within the EU borders for used gear?
It all depends on what you want and need, a cheap option with TTL is the Nissin i-40 as mentioned above if you use manual flash (which I would recommend) Youngnuo is a very affordable option also offering remote triggers for off camera use. I have the nissin i-40 whish is easy to use and offers TTL and a couple of Youngnuo Flashes with remote triggers.
I live in Yuen Long, Hong Kong. Just bought X-E3, X-T30, 16mm 1.4/f, 18mm 2/f, and 35mm 1.4/f. Here is the set of photos I used them to record Yuen Long, Hong Kong. I only use the Film Simulation of Acros Red. I will keep updating this album. Cheers!
(From an older inquiry I responded to here)
I bought the pair listed below.
Both are made by Godox but are rebranded house brands from Adorama.
B&H also has Godox rebranded house brands though I don’t know their name for it.
The reason I went with Godox is they are inexpensive and rated very high on multiple websites.
I first bought the pair as Godox branded but the warranty was a joke. The flash and off camera support both had a card insert explainin
