Mission Impossible: Making Professional Work with Fujifilm Cameras :)
Fujifilm’s Mission Impossible
If you are one of those, who thinks Fujifilm is not for Pros (APS-C is crap, MF is too slow), then please stop reading now, since I would like you to keep your sweet illusions ;).
Still sticking around? Well, then here is todays’ story.
After we discovered that the official images of Hollywood’s blockbuster “Dunkirk” were taken with the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and Fujinon XF18-135, fellow FR-reader Sam Zhai (instagram @hermeneuticlens) now spotted Fujifilm cameras on set of Mission Impossible – Fallout.
The Fujifilm X-T3 grabs almost all the attention in the Fuji X world. And surely it deserves it, but it also overshadows other cameras, which might not be as new and impressive in terms of specs, but they are still reliable workhorses or travel companions.
So here is a roundup of articles and videos about the Fujifilm X-T2, X-H1, X-E3 and more.
Profoto just announced their new Profoto Connect Wireless Transmitter, which will be available for several systems, including the following Fujifilm cameras: GFX 50S, X-T2, X-T20,, X-Pro2, X100F, X-H1, X-E3, X-T3 and GFX 50R.
The results showed him that he can save himself the $6,000+ he’d need to switch to the Sony A7III (+ lenses he needs), since it ranks even below the camera he already uses, the Fujifilm X-T2.
He concludes that he better spends that money for nice trip with his X-T2.
Of course everybody will get different results, depending on which top 5 features you select and which importance you assign to them.
So which one is the right call for you?
Use Jason’s methodology, download and edit his “Cure Your GAS Excel Spreadsheet” on dropbox here, and let’s see if Fujifilm is still the right call also for you.
Altough I find this a cool methodology, I personally won’t make this test, since I already know that what need to reach ultimate photographic happiness is an X-E4 with tilt screen and this XF 27mmF2.8 with aperture ring.
As you might know DaVinci Resolve can’t read the metadata of many DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras. A solution to this problem is now offered by Exif Video Resolved DR.
Exif Video Resolved DR is a plugin for ExifTool, that allows you to import camera EXIF metadata such as ISO, Aperture, Shutter, Lens Type, Gamma, Color Space, Focal Point, etc. to Davinci Resolve, giving you the ability to see a lot more metadata info in your Media Pool with just a few click.
Exif Video Resolved DR is not free, but very affordable. You can get the Fujifilm version for €5 and the version with all cameras supported for €14 (or €20 if you buy Windows and Mac version together). Future updates should be free.
