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.
I have used cameras for a long time, none of them weather sealed, without any damage from water or dust.In fact I don't recall it even being an issue.But now I am deciding between an xt2 and xt20 ,mainly on this basis and the $700 price difference.I will never be out in the rain with this gear, but it will be exposed to ordinary dust, and perhaps high tropical humidity.I am leaning towards the xt20.This has perhaps been covered before, but I can't find a search function.
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!
Thank you for your advice. I was able to slide a credit card into the slight gap between the lens mount and the cap, I kept forcing it around the edge of the mount as I put pressure on the cap to turn. It finally popped off. A tab on the inside of the cap had broken off at some point and I'm guessing that was preventing it from releasing properly. I appreciate your help!
What are your main needs from a flash ? I have a nissin i40 - which is perfectly sized for X cameras as well as fuji styled dials - however , it can't be controlled by a radio trigger - only optical slave mode
