Re: How to shoot fast with a slow camera

It does not seem terribly complicated to me. Qith the 14 or the 18 just select f/11, manual focus, focus on the hyperfocal and let the depth of field and auto ISO do the rest. With longer lenses prefocus with the help of those silver phantoms that help a lot. In doubt go back to autofocus single. All the X cameras I used worked better if the focussing target is kept very small. Want to do follow action continuous autofocus? Wrong system. It's written everywhere, in every test: Fuji X is not (yet) the right system for this kind of things. I don't shoot flying birds, so it's all right for me.
