ЭТО – КОММЕНТАРИЙ К СТАТЬЕ: My friend used to shoot on the full-frame Nikon D800 and now he starts to use the Fujifilm X-T2. What is the result?, оставленный читателем (нажмите на ссылку, чтобы почитать саму статью) Paul Chertalev.

Sergey, I shot a lot of my reports and will shoot in conditions of poor light conditions, and I need high accuracy and speed of focusing, and good ergonomics, a second card slot, just in case, and the ability to shoot with a flash at 1/250 seconds.

All this I could only get from the Fujifilm X-T2. If you think that for professional photography I could do with the Fujifilm X-T20, then it seems to me that you are mistaken. The ability to quickly change shooting parameters is priceless, it helps to not miss the moment.

But I agree that for most of the philistines the Fujifilm X-T10 will be enough. And maybe there will be quite an even cheaper option such as the Nikon D40 KIT 18-55mm for 2.5 thousand rubles. 🙂

Nik, I do not have the battery grip on my Fuji X-T2, so the duration of continuous video shooting in 4K is limited to 10 minutes. But I used my camera to take a dance concert. Dynamics video about this: a dance turn for 3-5 minutes, then – pause about 30-60 seconds and 3-5 minutes continuous recording again.

In this mode, when recording movies in 4K, the X-T2 works for about 4 concert turns (i.e. approximately 15 minutes of continuous recording), then overheating lamp will light and the camera can be turned off. Frankly, it’s annoying.

I do not know if the battery grip helps to reduce heating not. So, if you want to shoot long videos, you have to move to Full HD – in this mode, the camera does not overheat.

But, as Sergey said, the need to capture longer clips is rare. To create an interesting video you need to record many scenes from different angles, with different content, and then assemble them into a single movie.

Alexander, mom bought images from the pros, who shot pictures at the concert at the full frame Nikon D4. There, with the skin tone is much worse. 🙂 I have, incidentally, calibrated monitor Benq SW2700PT. These pictures (33rd onwards) was not color managed – in my opinion, I have chosen just one of Fuji color profiles.

You have to understand that at a concert colorful lights pour on a stage – if we would talking about shooting in natural light or in the studio, it would be possible to argue. By the way, Sergey did not set the task to convince someone of the advantages of the Fujifilm X-T2. This is just an overview of the technical characteristics with examples of photos.

Hello, Sergey.

1. The sound on the video is recorded on the built-in microphone Fujifilm X-T2. In conditions of concert performance, when the speakers rumble and the audience rustle, nothing is audible when shooting with any lens. In my video, the shooting of the performance where a camera microphone was used was executed on the Fujifilm 16-55mm f/2.8 lens. This lens has a perfect noiseless autofocus motor, so that even in complete silence nothing is audible.
2. Video footage of the performance shot from a tripod, the rest of the cutting was shot on the hands of different lenses. Than they were stabilized in a special video converter, and finalized in Pinnacle.
3. I did not notice the bands during the installation – then it was already late to change something. In short, I realized that with a certain exposure, somewhere around 1/50-1/60 seconds, in the light of luminescent lamps, flickering bands appear. When the shutter speed is increased above 1/60 (for example, to 1/80 and 1/100), this flicker disappears on the video. Moreover, the higher the shutter speed, the less noticeable the flicker. Perhaps this is the effect of the electronic shutter.
