Hello there! I am new to this forum and a proud owner of an X-T2.
Last night I wished to try interval timer shooting to stack some star tracks, so I programmed my gear for 545 1-second exposures each separated by 10 seconds, at ISO 1000. OIS was off, AF was set to manual with focus set at infinity and aperture also set to manual, at the widest setting for the lens. The body firmware version is 4.30 and the battery was fully charged.
When the shooting was over, I was disappointed to see that only 292 exposures had been taken instead of the 545 I had keyed in.
In the Astrophotography world most people end up using software like BackyardEOS or BackyardNikon
and others to automate the process. For a deep space session you need may to take 300 x300sec exposures with dark frames and flats. The software manages this from a computer, and then prepares for, or in more extensive packages, begins to, process the shots, stacking them removing noise etc.
Despite for years have a crap low noise response sensor Canon has dominated the field due its ease of use with such software.
Fuji sensors seem to have a great H1 hydrogen emission response and look great in the few manually exposed sequences that I have done.
Does anyone know of any software that allows me to automate the process with Fuji? or if you are using Fuji in your Astrophotography whats your process/software stack?
I really don't want to have to convert every raw to a tiff.....
I found that only some software and some web browsers work with the XWebCam, and those that do typically need to have an update.
I think the Zoom App most recent works fine, and MS Teams *inside Chrome only* works, but MS Teams native app doesn't work, nor does MS-Teams in other browsers like safari. That said, the post above about forcing permissions on MS Teams may point at a general issue with what needs to be changed with apps -- i.e. the need to access the removable storage which I guess
Just got the new X-S10. I don't think you have a forum for the X-s10 yet. Hopefully this is the right place to post.
I'm confused about how autofocus works. I'm sure it is similar on all X models. Before I bought, I watched tons of videos on youtube about the X-S10 and when they tested the autofocus, they would walk away or towards the camera so you could see the focus adjust.
Now that I got the camera, I'm baffled.
