The photo editor Darktable have added support for X-T30, however that support currently lacks a noise profile. It would be great if someone would be able to assist them by creating one for them. There are instructions on how to create such a noise profile here https://pixls.us/articles/how-to-create-camera-noise-profiles-for-darktable/
I do not have all the pre-requisites for the photo-part of the process, but I can assist with the non-photo parts of the process if needed.
I recently picked up the x-t30 after finding the Sony X100 Mark 7 point and shoot was a bit soft. I don’t know much about photography, but I love taking pics of flowers, family, pets, and travel. I realized that my x-t30 refused to take macros, so I got the mcex-16 to aid in that. I tried auto, manual, everything under the sun (I think), to try and take pics of my new African violet blooms. But my camera simply won’t budge when I press down on the shutter button. What am I doing wrong? Or is the Mcex-16 broken (it did come in a banged up box)? Also, I’m pairing it with a 18-55mm Fujinon lens, which several people were doing in the reviews for the extension.
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?
Your logic makes sense here. It appears to me that Fujifilm is gobsmacked by video right now, and seem to be forgetting that some of their customers enjoy taking photographs with small cameras, and really not interested in 4k selfies. I love the X-E because when I take photos, it just holds my beer (photos), and gets out of my way.
Probably you have already figured out the solution, but I noticed that al the film simulations loose a stop or so of light so you will have to have a lot more light. Also - what if you set DR at 100? I think you may be causing issues using DR - maybe do a test at 100 with lots of ight and also compare to flog at iso800 and see if the issue is the simulation for the exposure and DR you have selected. BTW can you look at my post and maybe help with Ninja V sample?
I can't get goood 4K results out of the XT-3 recording internally (4K DCI flog any frame rate) and Fuji will not provide any fixes or support.
Basically the frame rate quality is very poor for any lateral motion in frame - making it unusable. I mean you could never submit a short to a festival shot on this
My only other option is to purchase Atomos Ninja V and record externally - but I don't trust any of the vendors anymore - if you look at Atomos suer groups - they claim several feat
I have longstanding issue with my Fuji XT-3 and I am unable to get any support.
I have tried JApan support - but get response to talk to US support.
When I reach out to US support I get response to call 800 number even though I have stated several times that I am in Asis and unable to call US 800 numbers.
None if the Fuji Asia support centers support English or have been instructed to always refer back to country of purchase.
Does nyone have a direct number for US Fuji suppor
Can I use the Fujifilm FinePix S1600 as a webcam?
Or can I use FinePix S2950 as a webcam?
Does anyone try this, I need a definitive answer. Because I'm going to buy one according to the answer.
Thank you to everyone who helped.
