Thanks for the feedback. Criticism about color and volume is taken purely to my own account, since this has nothing to do with the camera. After all, as I said, in blind testing it is impossible to distinguish pictures made by Fujifilm X or Nikon.

I assure you that the volume in the photo is created by special techniques that can be used with any camera. Maybe the feeling that the volume in the image was less developed because my photos have fewer pictures with a blurry background, but this trend has been traced in my pictures for quite some time. Sergey just did not publish my photos for a long time. 🙂
I began to appreciate the story more in the picture than the cool voluminous but plotless portraits (as Ilya Rashap says – the statement of the “woman”), and the empty temples in the frame do not attract me anymore. By color – most likely, I got carried away with Fujifilm profiles, and color, as we know, is a purely subjective thing. I like the cool color of Fuji better, you – apparently, less.

I emphasize once again: the Fujifilm X-T2 shoots no worse than Nikon or Canon, as well as Sony or Olympus. All cameras are just a padding between the person and the subject. The person shoots. And if the shots became worse, then this photographer became worse off, and not the camera. And I have enough good fast optics from Fuji to absolutely reproduce exactly all of my old frames shot on Nikon – the only problem is that now, most of them I do not really like.

I, by the way, have already received quite a lot of criticism concerning color. But, guys, I have a camera for a month – I think I have not yet found my recipe for the perfect color in RAF from the Fuji T-X2. And I think that I will look for it for a rather long time. In the end, I was looking for my color in Nikon for 3 years. And, when I already found it, I switched to Fuji, as the weight of the photo bag began to exceed my physical ability to carry it all day.

By the way, it seems to me, Sergey did not set the task to convince everyone to move from a full frame to APS-C camera. He just wanted to show what came out of this specifically from me. So far I am pleased with the result, and Sergey also liked my pictures, and to Misha Shmakov. This, at least, convinces me that at least I have not lost anything at the transition to the mirrorless, but I have become compact and light, which, in turn, will help me make more good pictures. I can now carry the Fujifilm X-T2 + Fujinon 35mm 1.4 kit every day, which I do. With the Nikon D800 I could not afford such a luxury.

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?
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.
