Fuji X-T2 + Veydra Mini Prime, Tuba cage and rails, Tilta follow focus, Bright Tangerine Titan arm and Blackmagic Design Video Assist (not shown).
I guess in addition to the twenty-odd missed opportunities and glitches I already reported on in an earlier post, it would seem that Fuji’s X-T2 on steroids has seriously erratic autofocus issues as well as some very impressive moire artifacts. The next firmware update should be a doozy. I wouldn’t hold my breath though, since… Read More
I’ve always thought the Fuji X-T2 would be a great narrative filmmaking camera, but it’s taken a back seat to my Panasonics for the past year. As it happens, I’m planning to begin work on a documentary next month and it occurred to me that this would be a great opportunity to try out my… Read More

For one thing, unlike the more capable X-T2, in-camera sharpening and highlights/shadows cannot be adjusted while shooting UHD on the X-Pro2.… Read More
