That doesn't explain two shots with similar settings at different times... so again, how is this a failure on the part of the gear used? If you made a mistake, own it... don't come in here claiming that Fuji could never get the shots you got with your other gear and even start a thread just to boast about it when your argument is so easily dismantled.

You are not dismantling anything due to the demands I wanted at the time. 1/1000 was no mistake. Image fell apart so I made an informed decision to change gear. The initial intent to stop action was my point of selecting a faster shutter speed.

I own different gear so I made the decision to change to different tools. It's a logical decision to change gear if you own different gear with more potential for cleaner RAW files in the given situation. I have Canon and Sony so I use it to my advantage. If I only owned Fuji I would do things different ....... pulled closer to the cars and have limited movement and shoot directly beside the cars to maximize pixel density on the subject in the frame. This is where I can use a speedlight to stop action too. I do not want that side shot as it's so common.


Next year "if" I have no intent of stopping action use my A7iii and fully utilize IBIS and shoot slow SS. If I owned an X-H1 this would also be beneficial shooting fast primes and shooting closer to the subject with the luxury of adding ibis for added stability (not imperative). No wheelies so no point documenting movement.......

Another alternative is to shoot in ideal light situations. Fuji or any camera system can pull of such ideal light situations without taxing the cmos sensor.

FYI...
IBIS or OIS or IS or whatever your camera has will throw a wobbly [HA!] if you leave it on while dragging your shutter in a pan unless you have a setting to allow for the horizontal movement, so make sure about that before you shoot.

I noticed you have 3 different systems listed in your signature. Have you taken the time to learn all 3 systems as best to your abilities? I think that would drive me crazy having so many choices. I would hate to see the camera bag you lug around :eek:. I pick one system and learn the ins and outs, and can fully exploit a system's potential. Back when I had my Canon 5D Mark II, I even spent a few years with just a single lens (50L) to see what I could accomplish with such limited resources.

I like this one.

FF will be better than APS-C which in turn is better than micro 4/3, in high ISO and DR perspective. How much is all relative and to me is like max 1 stop. Same logic, MF is better than FF and full frame MF is way better. For now there is no digital LF. And then you have sensor tech. Latest tech is going to be better. Let us see what happens with Phase One 150MP with BSI sensor comes next yr. Same with Fuji GFX100MP.

Interesting... seems like a pretty dismantled argument to me.

Literally takes a fraction of a second to change the shutter speed. The problem here wasn't the camera.

Yes P1's sensor will be 54x40mm @ 150 or 200Mp. The P1 101MP files are already~160Mb each :-|

I think there is more to the DR thing than just the sensor size, Fuji's 24mp cameras produce DR that is a good bit better than the new Canon 6D Mark2 until the ISO goes up then they are on par, and way better than the M50 et al.

Look at how close all the cameras [except the Phase obviously] are once you go up the ISO ladder

Awesome, thank you for sharing! It's tips like these that I need at this stage in my Fuji experience. Aside from the Spot AF, this is how I've had my x100 set, and it works really well.

Glad you found some use, changing the metering is key to it working well.

But to keep on track here are some more images
2 flower photos and 2 shots from my reef tank

Capilano River Salmon Hatchery.

The introduction of wild salmon to the river. From the beginning development from fry to young adults the salmon meet the wild. You can even see very large salmon swimming in the river.

Is that a cigarette butt? I don't mind folks smoking but hate when they throw butts everywhere. Some of our fires here in CA care caused by those. BTW - We visited BC, Canada 3-4 months ago. It was beautiful. Wish had more time to explore the islands.
