Just wondering, would anyone happen to have some sample event photos using the Godox flash and triggers triggers? I was thinking of replacing my YONGNUO manual flashes.

Lug the kids to the Bloedel Conservatory @ Queen Elizabeth park so the kids can admire the birds and Floral/tropical plants.

The X-T2 / 50-140mm combo did well.

With all of this X-T3 excitement I feel my X-t2 is showing it's age. The XT3 quad core finally has bump up to the AF speed I always wanted in a Fuji.

This Conservatory had some seriously fast flying birds. If I had the X-t3 there would have been less frustration for sure........

Regardless, the IQ was great with the Xt2 and very pleased with the performance of the 50-140mm..... which I almost sold :0 At this moment I think I'll keep this lens as it really is a stunning IQ maker and provide me the FL gap for this type of situation.

Dont be too sure that the X-t3 will be the cure for your frustration on nailing fast flying birds until you have tried it. I still cant get the super fast ones like little finches, swallows etc and Ive been trying for years same as many other birders have :)

FYI Im trying to get a demo x-T3 with a XF 100-400 from my camera supplier I buy off to try out at the wetlands I frequent becaUSE I need to know if the X-t3 combo is faster than my 5DSR 100-400 combo in the important areas like single and continuous shot tracking , shutter lag, RAW buffer speed etc . Then if it is better Im totally out of Canon and all in 100% on fuji because thats the only thing holding me back to date. IMO Field testing is the only way of telling if it meets your requirements because published specs on these things dont mean anything when it comes to real life use. Thats how I ended up with my gear I have now for BIF although I sacrificed FPS by going 5dsr vs 7dMk2 howver that was all I sacrificed yet I gained 50Mp ve 23mp which helped with cropping ... And this is exactly how I will approach the X-t3. Although in this field test I wont have much else to compare apart from tracking speed etc as everything else that fuji has is known to me like xtrans vs bayer array, quality of fuji glass etc although the drop to a 26Mp from 50Mp will also be a consideration. But if the X-t3 is substantially faster in all areas of operation( tracking etc) then I will weigh up the drop in pixels to what it means in more keepers by havingh the faster and more accurate tracking system

Cheers

Good to see you’re methodical in gear decisions.

The nice advantage of the 50MP files is your cropping capabilities. The Fuji setup you have that crop factor built in from the aps-c 1.5x factor.

I will say my total casual nature of a family visit to the conservatory was enjoyable. Yes some of those birds were flying almost as fast as you blink your eye! :eek:

The sharpness and accuracy of the mirrorless setup is shockingly excellent. You almost get the feel of effortless confidence with no concern of back/front focus. This is what I get as long as my lighting or available light is very good.

This is just one type of photography so this is where it’s nice to see how it stands against other gear in the bag.

There were opportunities in BIF but due to space and speed of those buggers would be difficult to take perfect sharp images.

I think anyone test driving an XT3 wouldn’t ever complain about the huge improvements in af speed. In the conservatory I felt like It would have been the perfect time to own an XT3...sadly I haven’t bought one ... yet...still debating

Don’t get the X-T3 Alan you still won’t be happy. :-P

Matti is happy with his experience, well more surprised. He says the colour is better than his Sony A73 and also the AF tracking is better then his Sony A73 & the 4K60 & the bitrate etc...

Colour is subjective. I like Fuji colours a lot but Sony post processed colour science isn’t so bad either as they are different.

What will happen when the A7R4 or A74 comes out ? We will always see some improvements.

XT3 is so needed and Fuji finally delivered a fresh beast!

Colour might be subjective, even if you like the green cast :p but looks like he is saying all the other stuff bests the Sony too. Interesting points. Basically the A73 is good but the X-T3 is better. I really want to go pick mine up soon now.

Sony colour science is a bit different.

Fuji colours is very good. Can't dispute that fuji has worked real hard to make the colours appealing "globally". That is something Sony has to work on to make it more pleasant looking with less intensity.

Right now it's no so difficult to run to your local camera shop to pickup an X-t3. The price point is really making it more appealing too. BUT for some the AF is not that critical so the IQ of the 24MP X-t2 is not an upgrade to some respects.
