Does anyone have examples of long exposures (minutes) with the xt2 or xpro2?

I'm heading out the Sat to shoot some long exposures, I just got a new ND kit, - if the weather allows. I'll post if any turn out.


One with the 18/2 a little while ago, yes it's another great day out at the beach with the kids :)

Besides weather sealing what is the big downside with the Xt-20 compared to the Xpro 2 and XT2? I know the xpro 2 has the viewfinder etc. The Xt2 is more of a pro body but the little XT-20 also manages to have a pop up flash in the smallest body.

The DR settings can boost the levels in the camera so with DR AUTO on you can end up with an under exposed raf, it works well if your output is jpeg, but if you are shooting for raw you should set it to DR 100

Thanks, that is what I thought.

BTW - These were done in response to folks saying that Fuji fudges the ISO.

Yeah bonby I have read that, but again I like a hair underexposed photos to my eye and in shooting, I always move the exposure dial to what I want anyway, so I am not sure if even if that is concrete true, how much it matters in real life. I certainly would have been unaware of it if not for the Internet.

It seems like in the web, there are a lot of strans haters, which I find kind of baffling as I have seen this system as only amazing and something like a best kept photography secret that everyone sorta knows about but only the ones who try it get to realize it.

I don't think there's a big downside. The the x-t20 has a limit of 1/4000 mechanical shutter. Otherwise it simply lacks less accessible knobs. 4k is not identical to the xt2 but apparently not noticeable in IQ.

For the price it's apparently a mini X-t2.

Got an email to say my x100F would be posted to me tomorrow and I will get it Thursday. Can't wait!

In many ways the X-T1/2 is great because of the EVF, it's huge! To me that is really the selling point.

It really comes down to the viewfinder (hybrid in X-Pro2 and huge in X-T2) and the joystick/controls. Image quality, AF and feature set is almost identical beyond that.

Aside from the larger EVF and 4K video, I don't think there's much different between the XT-2 and XPro 2. I started out with an XT-1, and when these newer models came out, I opted for the XPro 2. I like the XPro 2 more than I like the XT-1, but it's personal preference. I like the OVF, but if I want the EVF, it's there too, which is something the XT-2 can't do.

I want to wait and see some review of the Xt20 and X100F before I finally make a decision. The Xt2 seems like an obvious choice for the best Fuji has to offer I am more drawn to the X-pro2 but I can make a case for any of the above.

What Are you looking for?

If like me you want an easy and fun more everyday system and are keeping your dslr, I will propose my biased thoughts.

I think the xe2 is perfect in terms of size and style. I truly wish they would add a joystick, weather sealing, and the 4k on next release, but I know the first two won't happen, but if so it would be perfect with new sensor. The xt2 to me and maybe xf20, I will probably have something like one day, but for me, the whole RF style and experience is a major part of the enjoying, it is different in a great way. Also it is very low key, which I wanted.

I would recommend you get a Changable lens x camera, only because as awesome as the x100s are, you may be like me and really find that the fuji system with family of glass is what you want to use for 90% of everything. So maybe hold out for the xe3? As it is basically like an x100 but with options of glass?

The xt20 makes sense for me except I don't "need" anything fuji now and don't succumb to gas often. I think the xe3 of it looks amazeballs, or xe4 will be my next move.

That said, the x100 is something I am very intrigued by with leaf shutter and built in ND and just overall awesomeness, it is just pure toy and not a need. I may score one used on the cheap at some time for kicks.

Thanks. Yes more for fun, travel everyday camera

I am leaning heavily towards the xpro 2 mainly because of the ability to change lenses and the viewfinder. The f looks cool but I don't think having a fixed lens is worth the cost.

I'll probably keep my dslr at least until I spend some serious time with Fuji but most likely I'll keep it.

The X100 line has a shutter speed of 1/1000 @ F2 for clean exposure, if you want a faster shutter speed you'll need to use a smaller aperture. 1/4000 needs F8. This is due to the leaf shutter. Of course you also get electronic shutter of up to 1/32000 if you need f2 at fast SS or use 3 stop ND filter. Very nice for flash outdoors.

My previous X-T10 with fotga bolt on grip felt incredible in my hands. That setup makes the X-T2 feel like poop in my hands. The X-E2 with same brand aluminum bolt on grip did NOT have a nice deep grip.

When I buy the X-T20 (will buy grip or potentially my old X-T10 fotga grip will work) I know I'll grab that equally as much...if not more than the X-T2.

I actually dislike the X-E2 body without a bolt on hand grip. The "bump" does not give me confidence in holding the camera. Please note I do NOT use a neck strap or hand strap since I use the Spider holster system.

Tommy buy the 16mm f/1.4 and crap your pants with happiness!!!! I know you like the 24mm focal length and the 16mm is a small INCREDIBLE lens!!
