😂 moral of the story don’t get a good phone 😆. But really the phone is usually more convenient. Easily taken out to shoot than your camera.

I'm thinking of getting a PD Capture clip for my upcoming trip in November, I think it would be so much more convenient to use..

Any x-t100 users here? If so, what do you think about it in general?

I am interested in getting it with the kit lens (1545) for my first Fuji camera. Mainly using it for travelling.

Thanks in advance!

The Fuji X-T100 and X-A5 are both in my radar because of the "selfie" screen.

I think it should be well capable if you don't shoot fast paced action or if you are okay with 1080p video recording.

My only concern is the lack of support for film simulations by Capture One. If you use Lightroom, it's not a problem if I remember correctly.

And by the way, the Fuji X-A7 should be announced later today. It would have the same articulating screen as the X-T100 and 4k/30 fps video recording. A concern for the XA series is the lack of EVF because the LCD can be easily obscured during a sunny day however the XA7 is coming with a very bright screen (max 1000 candela)

Fujifilm introduces the stylish “FUJIFILM X-A7” with newly-developed image sensor

- Equipped with AF capable of tracking a fast-moving subject and detecting face / eye at high speed and accuracy to capture every precious moment
- Producing high quality 4K video and sporting a large bright rear LCD monitor for excellent operability

Tokyo, September 12, 2019 — FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) announced that it will launch the “FUJIFILM X-A7” (“X-A7”) in Autumn 2019, a new addition to the X Series of compact and lightweight mirrorless digital camera that deliver outstanding image quality with the company's unique color reproduction technology.

Weighing just 320g*, stylish X-A7 carries a newly-developed 24.24MP APS-C sensor to deliver premium image quality with the company's proprietary color reproduction technology. The sensor uses copper wiring to enable high-speed data readout, and features phase detection pixels across the entire sensor surface to enhance AF speed and accuracy. This enables AF tracking of a moving subject as well as Face / Eye detection AF with ease. The camera also records smooth 4K/30fps video and high-speed video, catering to the ever-growing need for high-quality video for use in Vlog** and other media.

The camera has a large 3.5-inch LCD monitor with the maximum luminous intensity of approx. 1,000 candelas to guarantee intuitive operability on the rear panel. Furthermore, this is the first X Series model that features a “vari-angle” monitor that users can adjust to any angles. It can be used in conjunction with the Portrait Enhancer Mode for self-portraits of advanced quality. The X-A7 is a perfect choice for those who want to upgrade their photography from smartphone pictures, offering a broad range of applications from casual snapshots of everyday scenes to travel photography and full-fledged photographic creations.

I don't think the X-A7 should be taken lightly just because it is seen as entry level. It can produce images just as good as the X-T series in some circumstances (static subjects like landscapes, street and even portraits).

For my own purpose, perfect for me but maybe an EVF add on would be great especially in sunny days. In mitigation, the camera does have a 1000 candela screen which I guess is very bright?

It's sharp, it's super light, it's got OIS, it's cheap and most of all wide enough for one handed selfies with the kids.

I'll be getting that lens too (comes with the X-A7) and decided to forgo the 18-55 due to the weight and narrower focal length. Primarily to selfie also so the weight must be as light as possible to pair with a selfie stick.

Its plasticky (silver is worse than black) but in terms of image quality won't lose to the 18-55 (which I also have).

But why X-A7?
*
Flippy screen and time constraint as I need a camera with zoom lens for my trip to Japan next month. (Only have a Fuji X70 with me now, Sony jump to Fuji)

The X-A7 lacks an EVF but it does have a super bright screen and viewing the histogram does help.

Initially wanted to get the Fuji X-T30 and after much thoughts, a selfie screen remains a priority. The X-T100 has a flip out screen and EVF but the heavier body makes it harder to balance on an extended selfie stick.

As for using the Fuji X70, I don't want to "gamble" on using it for such a nice trip because of its fixed focal length and un-stabilised lens.

When I was single I wouldn't have cared about having a selfie screen.. laugh.gif

Why not TT350 for travels? It's almost half the weight of the V1..

Same here. I really don't want to regret later when I'm there. Most likely I will bring along but thinking not to bring all lenses. Still can't decide yet. hmm.gif I may end up bringing everything. laugh.gif

Really depends on whether it's a photography trip or not or something in between. And also whether your traveling partner is into photography or not, if he/she is, then you do get "more time" taking pictures. But I'd say bring everything if you can't decide, leave whatever you don't need at the hotel.

For me, I'd be bringing just the camera + kit lens + accessories but will be lugging a 1kg tripod the whole day..

I will step down on my flash and edit before posting but I just need it to be sharper.. I noticed my shots are not so sharp. hmm.gif
Anyway, let's see how it goes later.

Wide portraits or half body/full body shots?

The more the subject covers the frame, the better the exposure/metering would be on the subject's faces. Also to use spot focus/metering smile.gif

What's the must buy basics camera lens and accessories for fujifilm?
Basic and have a love for street photography,  food, and scenery.
*
- good lens filters (to protect your lens)
- battery grip especially for those lower end bodies like the X-T30 and below (for better ergonomics)
- extra batteries, high capacity memory cards to spam those jpeg+raw rclxm9.gif
- low profile backpack (rear access to camera gear and to safely store your camera gears and not attract unwanted attention) or sling bag
- tripod is a no brainer for taking long exposure shots (eg: sceneries at night). Heavy/light depends on you.
- table top tripod
- peak design capture system imho a must for travels or perhaps a good and comfortable camera strap
- external flash
- wireless remote trigger (to take timed shots of yourself and your family/spouse on a tripod) or you could use the app if it's practical for you
- last but not least, selfie stick wub.gif

XH1 has IBIS but only 4k 30fps
XT3 doesn't have IBIS but has 4k 60fps

Also would you recommend 16mm or 18 mm lens?

Lens selection depends on personal preference. If you're a newbie, it might be better to get a zoom lens and try out the various focal lengths.

Thanks for all the replies on attaching the PD anchor on the camera.
I think i gave up trying to attach it directly to the body.
This is what im ending up with, using the provided metal ring and tight the rope around it, less rattling noise this way so far 😉

Sorry for the off topic question but I seem to see a lot of those red shutter release buttons. What is their primary purpose? hmm.gif

Not sure if anyone knows this already but Capture One Pro 12 is able to display "more pixels" than what the camera is "designed to capture".

My X-A7 "can" capture 6000x4000 pixels at 3:2 ratio but Capture One Pro 12 shows like 6587x4198 or 6316x4119. I then came across an article mentioning the same thing and if you export the image, you do really get those "extra pixels". His theory is that the camera sensor actually captures more than what is advertised for perspective/distortion correction purposes and somehow Capture One Pro is able to access those extra pixels...

This only happens when shooting at the wide end like 15-17mm which is logical because that's where you need the most correction for distortion..

Or look below with a default crop by Capture One at 6000x4000 but notice the extra pixels in the darkened area which you can use:

I just started using Capture One Express .. free for Fujifilm cameras and more than enough for casual shooters like me. Loving the results so far.

Does the Express version give you access to the extra pixels? Need to click on the crop tool.

The express version is indeed enough for most, you can even apply film simulations on it.

Except for keystone correction. That one I still have to export balik to Lightroom.

Btw.. Does your export to DNG work?

No extra pixels

Ohh. Export to DNG is kinda broken. Gives a tiny 170x140 ish resolution.

For the extra pixels, need to shoot wide angle. You can try 15mm using your 15-45 biggrin.gif

You mean raw field of view is wider. Can confirm by looking at the number of pixels: 6293x4195 vs 6000x4000 tongue.gif

Yup, you got the same thing as me. Shooting RAW with a wide focal length gives u "extra pixels" to play with in Capture One biggrin.gif
