I am struggling with underexposed videos using my X-T3 and 10-24mm with interior Real Estate videos even with a decent amount of natural and ambient light. The footage is just too dark unless I pump up the ISO to 4000 where it gets really noisy.
What are the best wide-angle lenses for the X-T3 with regards to interior Real Estate videography where it's usually low light? Also, is there a budget friendly option? I've gone through the Complete Overview of X Mount Lenses but I was hoping for some recommendations specific to the industry and video.
Thanks for any help guys!
4K 29.97P I would prefer 59.94P to slow down some shots YouTube encoding prefers 30P ss60 F4.0 ISO 800-4000 200Mbps H.264 / H.265 Long GOP / ALL-Intra Eterna Custom White Balance DR400 Film Simulation Recording / F-Log Recording
Thought you all may be interested in seeing some super low light photos. I was using the 23 F2 but wish I had the 1.4 in this situation. (I used the 16mm 1.4 on the wide shots of the stages). I still think the camera managed the noise well. ...noise reduction in PS.
Low Light Festival Portraits
Majority of the photos were shot at 6400 and above. 1/3 of them were at 12800 - all handheld with no flash
Obviously they wouldn’t be good for printing but I think good enough for the web.
note: if you want to pixel peep first select the photo so it goes into the light box slideshow. Photos were exported from LR at 2000px long edge (not full resolution).
Note note: some of you may know how to describe this better than me but an F2 on a crop sensor is equivalent to approx 3.2 on a full frame camera .. as well as lenses you also have to do the crop calculation on the F-stop is that correct?
I recently got an XT20 with the 18-55 kit lens. Today I was trying it out at home, when I found out that when I try to zoom quickly in or out in manual mode, I see a horizontal light appear for a fraction of a second on the EVF. I cannot see this happening on the LCD. This happens only in manual mode, and not auto. This does not happen when recording a video. I am using mechanical shutter. But I don't think this is a shutter issue as I see this white line for a second when zooming quickly. Also I don't see it when I see EVF auto brightness from Auto to manual. The firmware is updated. Also tried zooming outside, I don't see that issue.
The issue is as described here by another user:

I use an X-H1.
Right now there are 4 modes when you press the VIEW MODE button.
The one I use is EVF + EYE Sensor. It feels right coming from a DSLR and it helps save battery. You can preview photos on the display with the playback button and everything's okay.
But as soon as you want to go to the Main Settings you have to either switch the mode to any other mode (except EVF only) or change the settings using the EVF. Then to go back to EVF + EYE Sensor you have to press the view mode button 4 times. And If you want to go to “live view” that is LCD view, you again have to do the same process.
It’s annoying. Is there any way to only put 2 options on the View mode button? Just EVF + Eye Sensor and Eye Sensor only?
Or is there anyway to request a firmware update to
• Show playback and settings on LCD while in EVF + Eye sensor mode.
• A one press switch to EYE Sensor and EVF + Eye Sensor mode.
Hello. While using my X-T3 I encountered artifacts in video mode. With a white balance of 2500 and a transition to the blue spectrum, purple spots appear.
Additional settings: 4k or FullHD, eterna picture prof, S tone -2, iso 640, diaphragm 2.8-22, DR 400, shutter speed 1\40 - 1\200. Software 3.00
This is evident on dark objects or on a yellow-green color. In the video, this effect is not visible. With atomos ninja 5 this effect is present. I also filmed this on video. Who faced such a problem? What could it be?

Thank you in advance.
When I import my jpeg+raw images into Lightroom Classic 10.3 all my photos come in with the simulation. For example, if I use the B&W simulation then all photos come in B&W including the raw files. How can I import my files so the jpeg has the simulation and raw is in color?
I've been photographing polo on a bright sunny day, with my X-T3/100-400mm lens. The camera is set to 1/1000 @f5.6 auto ISO. Focus mode is AF-C zone at 9 point square. I also used single point focus with nine points. I was consistently getting soft blurry pictures which was very frustrating. I'm an experienced sports photographer and have never had a problem like this before. Then I remembered reading a recommendation to use a shutter mode of EF+M, where I had been using MS, a full manual shutter. So for the polo shots I was initially using EF+M. I switched back to MS and my hit rate increased dramatically. As anyone else experienced this issue or have any recommendations please?
Same issue. I will grind/cut one end of the plate to shorten it.
