Hello. I just acquired a EF X20 Flash. I put it on the hot shoe but my XT2 (firmware 4.40) recognizes it as in sync terminal. So I can only acces the Manual mode (the TTL Mode in Flash Settings is grayed out). The flash does fire on Manual, but the TTL is not working.
When I put the EF X8 Flash, it simply does not even fire.
I am on single shot and mechanic shutter.
Any ideas what might be happening?
Thanks a lot!
I wanna buy X-T3, but only can afford used one. What should I check first, and what any other possible weak points of camera in term of use etc, which I should be aware of?
I'm interesting also in evf behavior in low light (my previous experience with 2.36 evf in other camera in low light was a bit painful, a lot of digital noise so I barely was able to (manually) focus), and since I like to shoot in low light, what's the possible slowest shutter speed I can get without blur handheld with 50mm f/2 wr lens, for example? And generally, how good non ois wr lens and is lack of ois/ibis in low light is actually that important? I also heard couple doubtful messages about 50mm f/2 being "not that sharp".
Also, how much if any weather sealing gonna be affected after repair, after shutter replacement for example (and in any other cameras, not only Fuji)?
And the last question is, is there any simple and fast method to crop to 4:3 ratio in photo (I just prefer 4:3)? Like in camera menus or something, or at least to put on some framing grid etc (it's really simple in any post, but I wanna see my 4:3 during the actual photo shooting if it's possible)?
Afaik some other cameras have 4:3 mode, and I didn't find that Fuji have one and I hope it'll be someday implemented with firmware update.
Thanks for answers.
Hope you're all well.
My Fuji randomly stopped turning on a few weeks ago. The screen turns on but not completely (as seen on the attachments). Changing to the Viewfinder also doesn't work, shutter doesn't go off...nothing works. When I turn it off, the screen stays on; I have to remove the battery for my camera to shut down. I've interchanged between my 3 batteries multiple times, and the problem persists.
I've looked for solutions on forums, but never found anything that fits. Tried updating the firmware through an SD card but the camera won't even turn on for the update to begin in the first place.
Any tips? I'd love to hear from you guys!
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.
Hey Joe! Sorry I got back a year later literally haha. Glad you liked the overall piece and yeah, you're totally right about the shutter speed on the beach shots, those were on a Canon 5d Mark III when Magic Lantern was a thing. Still love the texture of those DNG files but... XT3 is another beast for sure !!!!! Deeply in love with it for a year now. Thanks for taking the time and comment, so sorry again for responding this late. I do have a YT channel and Vimeo, here are my links and hope we can connect over there too. www.vimeo.com/htafilm https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcsLPnMk2SoU4YsNClxHpCg www.instagram.com/hectortapia.film
