By the way, I changed my user button from FACEDETECT ON/OFF to FACE SWITCH. This shortcut activate the face/eye detection directly.

Hi all,

The recent firmware update 3.0 fixed one of my main concern with the X-T3, the ability to choose between different faces with the joystick is finally here!

I've tried with 3 people in the frame and it's been a pleasure to switch face detection focus.

On top of that the sensitivity and tracking has been hugely improved, the algorithm was able to track 3 quickly moving faces about 6-7 meters away (in daylight) in af-c mode.
I haven't tested to the limit yet, but it's been a nice update so far...congrats to Fuji!

I've been using the 80mm Macro pretty intensively since I bought it, it's a great lens for sharpness but also has a great bokeh.
With the Srping kickin in in Europe of course I've shot some flowers!

Hi all,

Went back from a trip in Cambodia, had to travel light but still managed to take the X-T3, 16-55m, 10-24mm and 55-200mm + a set of ND filters and Tripod.
This was not a trip focused on photography :lol:

The only situation where my Pentax K1was really missing was Astrophotography, I tried on one occasion with the 16-55mm and the result are not that good.

But for most situation I was very happy shooting the Fuji X System once more.

I agree, JPEG shooting has been a new path to taking pictures for me. I've learned some new things by shooting JPEG's with a ML camera.
Of course I keep shooting RAW alongside and the last image I posted is purely a RAW image shooting and PP.

Thanks, I just did a A3+ Print on Canon Platinum Matte paper and it is looking really good.
After 4 months shooting the Fuji System almost exclusively I can say Im very happy, not only by the results (IQ and Prints) but also by the whole Fuji shooting experience.
Another example of Fuji strong points : I've done a photo reportage for an association recently and ended using only the Jpegs SOOC ! Huge time saver and the client was really satisfied.

Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
X-T3 and XF16-55mm @F11 ISO160 - 60 seconds.
I got out of subway when I saw the colors in the sky, ran to that spot and in a minute the camera was on tripod, ND filter attached and ready for a 50 seconds exposure. Glad I was carrying my camera bag today when commuting.
BTW I used some GOBE filter set for the first time on this image. They are relatively low priced and I think the quality is great for the price. The 3 filters set has a nice box and a smart way to keep them attached when not on camera.

It's been great really. Super portable and after about a year of regular use I would recommend that flash unit.
Coupled with the XPro Fuji version it is very reliable since I updated both firmware.
Sometimes in TTL there is issues with wrong metering and then wrong flash compensation but it's pretty rare.

It's otherwise rather consistent, I use it in manual mode mself as there was no TTL support for Pentax up until recently.
I had a couple weddings where it really shined outdoors.
Very good recycle time, instant as long as you're at or below 1/4 of power, about 1 sec below 1/2 power and a couple seconds at full power.

I do think a more powerful version might be better for your outdoor shoots though, check AD400 or AD600.
I was thinkin about buying a second one, coupled with the double AD200 adapter, for my outdoor shootings.

You're getting up to speed with your Fuji Gear Christopher !
Wonderful pictures with the LeRolls touch :D
Congrats.

Always difficult to post pictures right after yours lol !
This one is from a Shoot held right before theses musicians went on stage at the Blue Whale in Los Angeles.
I just set a Godox AD200 on a softbox, took my 50-140mm @F4 and ISO160, had a very limited time, shot a couple images and voila!

Just came back from L.A, had a lot of fun there shooting concerts (photo and video) with the X-T3 and either the 50-140mm or 16-55mm. Great combo.
I took some time to shoot landscapes a little bit as well.
The long exposure was taken with the 10-24mm /F4, the Pier shot with 50-140mm/F2,8 and the Parking sunset handheld with the 16-55mm /F2,8.

Since the last pictures I posted above, I've shot 2 more concerts (Im on a 6 weeks tour so Im gonna shoot a lot of concerts and events) with the X-T3 and Im very confident this camera will deliver outstanding images.
Let me put this straight though, this is not equivalent to the K1 in terms of noise (old FF Vs APSC sensor size debate) and battery life BUT it is superior in every other areas. Ill probably do a review of this camera for shooting concert at some point in this trip.

Just received my X-T3, now waiting for the 10-24mm to arrive.

First thing I noticed when I took my first picture is....EVF quality! this is a nice upgrade from the X-T20, I confess I like this EVF, the fact that the EVF is a little farther from the camera body allows my nose to fit :lol:

I quickly tried the AF with the kit lens, seagulls, BIF etc...this is ridiculous :eek: I am blown away, what an incredible AF system.
My settings were Custom AF setting #5 (erratic moves), AF-C, Boost mode and 11fps mechanical shutter.

Then, went to the skating park, took 2 series of dudes flying over stairs straight at me, strong backlit. ISO1600 1/1600 and this time AF custom setting #2 (tracking mode), 11FPS...all in focus :eek:
For a second when I was looking at the images on my computer I thought it was too easy to be true.

Now, here is the major upgrade for me. Face detection.

This was THE feature I was really enjoying on my X-T20 but this new camera has gone to the roof with the Eye tracking / face detection system...this is really stunning.
I tried under various conditions, daylight, darkness...and this is super efficient. The only thing you have to take into account is the distance (remember my kit lens is 55mm at the longest) where it tracks the eye, the acquisition distance is not that far, I would say about 15-20 meters in daylight, about 8-12m in darkness (like really dark). But still an incredible feature and I would say a game changer to me.

I had a concert shot yesterday, brought the K1 + 24-70mm (small club) and the X-T20 with the 27mm /f2.8 and the Face detection was a big plus, that's simple I couldnt believe it when I reviewed the shots afterwards. I was not able to use Face detection all the time, due to light condition and very fast moving subjects from time to time but this is something Im looking for on the newer camera body.

I can't wait to shoot more this camera, looking forward doin some video stuff as well.

I've got the kit lens and it is an incredible lens, also good for videos.
I intend to get the 50-140 and the 10-24mm if I sell my Pentax 70-200mm.

I would much prefer getting the next Pentax APSC flagship, but I'm waiting for so long now and on top of that it's not gonna have great video features anyway as Pentax has left the hybrid market.

I'm really concerned about Pentax not having a mirrorless camera that is an hybrid camera, and Fuji has one.

It will be the price of the camera itself for 6 weeks renting. Well I'll carefully check news for the next 2 weeks, I'm leaving on November 10th, we will see.

The XT3 is also in my price range and I don't think the XH2 will...

I have been digging forums and could not find at least an estimated release date, and I'm about to go 6 weeks on tour and I'll need an hybrid camera to complement my K1.
Im waiting for Paris salon de la photo to get some special price hopefully.
