Newbie Needs Help

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I am returning to photography after a twenty year hiatus. 

I just bought the Fuji X-T2 with the 16-55 f2.8 lens.

I am going to shoot a play tonight and I don't have enough time

to learn the camera, there have been many changes over the last

twenty years. LOL.

What would be my best settings for consistent photos under adequate stage lighting?

Thank you, Joe

LOL.....Thank you, fseaver. 

I actually went with Auto ISO (6400 max), Auto Shutter, and kept the Aperture on manual, I mostly used f2.8.

I chose Pro Neg Std and got some very pleasing results.

My first camera was a Canon F1N. I have had so many manual film cameras in my life

that I was so pleased to see Fuji get back to basics with their control dials.

I am very pleased with this camera.

Cheers, Joe

Thank you, George_P!!

I bought it last month (August) for 1,090 USD dollars. It was on sale because the X-T3 was waiting in the wings.

Also, picked up the 16-55 f2.8 WR lens for same price.

I'm amazed at how many features and buttons this beast has! The learning of it is taking me forever!

How can you call such a wonderful thing a “beast” ? 😀 Enjoy.

btw did you upgrade the firmware ? Kids hardly ever keep still. (make sure you follow the instructions - with a charged battery etc.).
