Not sure if it is a feature on the XT2 but the XT3 has a setting in the bracket mode that allows you to shoot three different film simulations in one shot. Takes a bit longer while buffering but gives an instant option of for example colour or mono.
Yes,its in all x series cameras from the very first XPro1....a nice situation on the XT30 is on the mode dial there are 2 custom settings,so mine has one set for my favourite 3 colour sims and the second is set for Acros with the different colour tweaks.So,I can take a colour bracket then turn the dial and get the 3 B/W shots.Great street shooter aid.

certainly is in my view a jpeg shooters camera.
Fuji surveys their users regularly,one such reported 50% only shot Jpeg,25% Raw/Jpeg and 25% Raw only.[COLOR="Silver"]

An interesting link. A very versatile range of cameras and the more I look into it the more I find.

A few recent efforts with the XF 16/2.8 on the X-T3 ... and I bought a XF 35/2 yesterday. Need to take it out for a good spin.

I found the recent discussions of shooting raw vs jpg to be interesting. Lately I have been saving both, and I'd guess that 90% of the jpgs have turned out just as good - if not better - than what I could process from raw. No doubt there are many photographers out there with the skill and knowledge to get superior results from raws, but I wouldn't disagree with the premise that the camera-processed jpgs are more than adequate for the average photographer. This picture, taken with an X-T20 and the decent but not exceptional kit XC16-50, is one that I couldn't improve on in post-processing, so here is the SOOC jpg, just slightly cropped in GIMP.

exactly this....

I found the jpg engine in the K-3 quite sufficient for my images; the jpg's from the X-T2 even more so.....

Luminar is an image processing app, just like Lightroom, etc....

The photos coming from the Fuji cameras really catches my eye. I was torn before I bought my Pentax between the KS 1 and a Fuji X100. Well, now I'm getting into photography more I've added a discreet little X10 to the mix as a carry all time option. First couple of attempts of a typical Covid day attached.

I'd welcome any comments or observations.

Thanks Glinda, I'm thinking that with the right zone focus and getting used to the position of the camera at my side will enable me to get confident street snapping.

somehow i have to make the focus assist button on the x-t1 more prominent ... i hate how they changed it to this button from the x-pro 1 , i am always fumbling around to find it , the position is awful ...
why they did that i can't fathom .
is there another way to zoom for focusing when its critical ? other than this button i wonder ?
don't use it often , but when i want to , i want to .... !

you listening , Fuji ?
