Had a play with a X-T30 today

My local camera shop, LCE Gosforth UK, had a Fuji day today. One of the Fuji team were there with various cameras and lenses.

I was interested in the X-T30 and how it compared to my X-T20.

Having read a lot and reviews various YouTube videos I was pretty well up on the differences but wanted to have a play with it.

I am sure you are well aware of what the X-T30 does better than the X-T20 however one thing I found out was that the front command dial can be set to do different function just like the X-T3.

This has always bugged me with the X-T20 as pressing it does nothing. However the X-T30 can be set, just like the X-T3:



Of course this may not be news to anyone here and if so sorry that I am behind the news :)

I have pre ordered one :)

Just a simple candid street style Fujigraph taken at London Chinatown UK of a couple of guys using the self service in a Chinese restaurant.

Not my usual style of candid street style photography, but I have liked some of the other snaps presented in this style so I kinda thought I'd give it a go for myself.:)

X-T2, 18-55mm Lens, 1/50th @ F5.6, ISO-1600, Handheld.

How are you finding xt3 for weddings? AF wise etc? Got first wedding with it in March
I have not used either of my X-T3s yet for weddings, but will be next year. AF on it is just great so have it on Face/Eye detect and you will be fine.

I've never been 'mainstream' in my artistic tastes but I am having a lot of fun with adapted lenses at the moment - and Fuji cameras really excel with this - particularly the X-T1/2/3 with their large viewfinders . A recent acquisition has been a couple of M42 Meyer-Optik lenses which must be at least 50 years old - a 50mm Oreston f1.8 and a 30mm Lydith f3.5. Meyer lenses are known for their bokeh - a bit like the Helios 44, but different.

This is an ongoing process as I have seen some wonderful images with these lenses - but at least I'm understanding the technique better now - maybe not to everyone's taste though :)

Only just arrived so not had a chance to play with it past some basic checks to make sure it is working.

One thing I have noticed,is it sounds like something is loose inside, there is a slight click light like something is sliding inside when I turn the lens over. However it seems to be working fine so I don't think it is damages, but could be a tolerance issue. Is it a known 'quirk' of this lens by any chance?

That's perfectly normal with the 55-200mm lens and several other lenses that Fuji produce.

You have given me an idea.... I have an M42 converter for my Swarovski scope which I could use with some old M42 lenses.... Will see if I can find something half decent for not a lot of money ;)

I might use eye detect for portraits but during 'live action' ceremony in particular not sure I trust it enough yet! might flip to zone tracking or single point af-c at those points.

Thanks Paul, one of the stags attacked someone quite badly before Christmas so I tread very carefully now
Jeeze mate, i don`t blame you. For me, even the 100-400 wouldn`t be long enough ;)

Lovely job Paul but please stop it, I don't have time to learn about stacking, stop tempting me
Thanks, Pete. Haha I`ll try not too tempt you too much, but I`m still learning/ practicing ;)

“Excellent” stacked close up Fujigraph, good colour with fine detail.

George.
Thank you kindly, George.

Thanks Andy, it was at Whipsnade.

They have been very elusive on my past visits, but yesterday they were both out of the tree and feeding on the bamboo. I've wanted to get this shot for years, but they have always up out of the way on all my previous visits. Quite chuffed with this one, especially as the sun broke through for a moment and caught his face. It'll be on the wall in the new place when we move :giggle:
