I found some fuji images I took before I put my X-t2 w/ 56mm away for the night. This is where I analyzed my situation and changed to different format. I guess this would be deemed "backing up" my relevant discussion.
Is there any suggestions in how to improve this image? I was using f/1.2 to maximize light gathering capabilities. The best solution is to have not taken these photos as no one else seemed to be daring enough In the end having an image is better than no image. The IQ is not met in my standards with a RAW file that is stressed and displays severe artifact. This is where i did appreciate a different format. Constructive criticism would be appreciated as I cannot see how improving IQ as I've maxed out the light gathering at f/1.2 for appropriate exposure.
I think this is a good example of how difficult the lighting was to shoot in. I just discovered these files that I used that night. Anyone never shooting in such conditions would easily criticize but I am biting my tongue as I tried my best to see how far I can push my Fuji.
My images stands correct to show the threshold of what IQ I produced with my X-t2 in those lighting conditions. If i used my TT685f and took detail upclose and personal shots the IQ would have been much better. One prime would not have been good enough for my documentation purpose.
This is where the power of 70-200 f/2.8 zoom on my 5dmk4 or using 2 different fuji camera bodies with primes is the method of maximizing IQ. Running and gunning in a dynamic situation is substantially different than fixed / static subjects.
This is proof that I've maximized the limits of the sensor as I used the 56 f/1.2 and sufficient shutter speed to stop action. I made a decision to put the X-t2 camera away after analyzing/chimping the images I saw in my EVF. There is no motion blur but the file just fell apart in that pitch dark situation. IQ is extremely poor and the image presents a canvas look.
