That’s what I love about Fuji - that is a cool update with some useful features. They are the only manufacturer that adds gamechanging new abilities to cameras long after they are out, even at risk of cannibalising their own sales. When I got internal F-Log and 120fps 1080 on my X-T2 over 2 years after it had come out I was gobsmacked!
Thank you, yours also! I know looking back at my full set from this display there is absolutely no consistency in processing style, so many ways to process the same shots with equally good results as shown by the different interpretation we both made.
Just a simple candid street style Fujigraph taken at Canterbury Kent UK of a couple of Bus Controllers on duty.
I'm also working on a personal project called Faceless and this will be one of the shots included.
I was lucky enough to get to spend the weekend in Chamonix. Weather wasn't ideal - this was about the only bit of blue sky I saw - but the scenery was great and snow plentiful at higher altitudes. I bought a secondhand XC 50-230 for the trip but never used it, as I ended up spending most of my time in valleys rather than on peaks. Oh well, another time... Will hopefully be ordering an X-T2 this evening, if I get a mo.
the only time I have seen anything approaching "waxy" skin is when working with high ISO settings. This has been with "All" makes of camera including Fuji.
It is usually caused by the over enthusiastic reduction of the inherent "Noise" at these settings. rather than the nature of the sensors.
Featureless skin can also be the result of over enlargement, when no more detail is to be found. this would be emphasised by particularly flat lighting.
Of course higher Pixel counts are able to show detail at higher magnification than lower pixel counts.
None of these things are "maker" specific.
Some makers use better Jpeg engines than others, but that is another story.
Just sold one of my Canon DSLR lenses and now I find myself hankering after a new Fuji lens before the £100 off voucher ends after the weekend. Trouble is I don’t know which one! Thinking either the 55-200 or the 10-24 for use mainly with landscapes. Currently have the 18-55 and 23 f/2. Too many choices! Lol.
