AussieBarb: Sad that I don't see any female winners in here (unless Aleks and Alyn are women).

Why is that sad?

FOTONOTO: I love the rear LCD of S1H. It can both tilt up and down like a tilt screen and flip out to the side like a flippy screen.

Flippy screen actually has several major disadvantages, yet every youtuber seems to claim that it's the most advanced form of rear screen. In the real world, only a small portion of camera users shoot themselves everyday.
Flippy screen is hard to touch when shooting in waist level. If you are lifting your camera with your left hand, your right hand has to leave the grip to touch the LCD, very cumbersome.
You can't use a L-bracket with a flippy screen.
It's not on the same axis of the lens while the EVF is, which makes framming a little bit tricky.

But the LCD of S1H solves those problems. Now tilt screen supporters and flippy screen supporters can be friends. I hope this becomes the standard form of rear LCDs in the future.

How does this type of screen works if you want to shoot in portrait mode from waist level?

The bokeh is so bad that it's almost good. It definitely has some character

sirhawkeye64: Everyone knows this tip. Every LR 101 class teaches this technique so it's nothing new and pretty self explanatory. Now if only C1 could employ a similar function for detecting spots, that would be nice.

@Valps
Learning by using the program and whatever things I can't figure out myself I can find by Google or YouTube. Same thing with photography, I learned it by doing and not reading books about it.

@sirhawkeye64 Not everyone reads through beginner courses. I prefer learning by playing around with the software and then if there's things I don't know how to do I will search for them.

Judging by the Youtube comment section of the video it seems like I was not the only one that didn't know this trick either.

Not everyone, for example I never heard about it

pdelux: Lens Makes no sense. Olympus has an excellent 17mm with AF and a manual clutch if one were so inclined. It is also smaller too. Robin wong review says that the Olympus is sharper up to F4 where they Laowa finally catches up.

Only thing this Laowa has going for it is price, but Oly is not that much more....

Save your money.

It has a much closer focus distance of 15cm vs 25cm so price is not the only thing

AlanG: A lot of people knock the kit lens, but I bought the A6000 and 16-50 to use as a light weight compact travel camera. The quality is more than good enough for my purposes and the price was low. (So I don't have to worry about damaging the camera or lens.)

Often I am shooting on, the run, at low light or at a slow shutter speed to get some subject movement. (E.g. ethnic dancers.) So it is not as if I am on a tripod getting the most out of the lens.

Here are some samples:

Here is a link to a few representative samples.
https://www.dpreview.com/galleries/3401543788/albums/sony-a6000-samples#page=1

@ZeBebito so if people don’t think the 16-50mm is great then they are anti-Sony fanboys ? I’ve had it and I found it incredible soft in the corners.

Dxomark gives it a terrible score of 13

https://www.dxomark.com/lenses/mounted_on-Sony_A6000-942/launched-between-1987-and-2017/mount_type-Sony_E/launch_price-from-0-to-13000-usd#hideAdvancedOptions=false&viewMode=list&yDataType=rankDxo

Photozone gives the lense the worst rating I’ve seen and writes this “The Sony E 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS broke a couple of records but unfortunately not in the positive sense. Its uncorrected distortion and vignetting figures are nothing short of insane.”

Here’s some of my own images with it showing how Bad it is compared to other kitlenses

In reply to:

Mateus1: Big drawback is slow motion 1080/120p mode that is 1.29x croped.
Fuji why did you do that??? It's most popular video feature now, so why limiting it?Using 18/2 lens I get 23mm field of view, with 16mm close 21mm... so not true wide angle view... + poorer IQ in low light with 1.29x crop.

Is it possible Fuji can bring 1080/120p from full sensor in future via firmware update or is it already hardware limitation?

1.29 is a small crop compared to Sony's 1.9 crop in the a6400 using 120fps. It also have twice the bitrate so It's going to look much sharper than the a6400 120fps

Mateus1: So no Eterna film simulation? No F-Log? And the same crap x62 EVF with short eyepoint? I hoped it will compete with A6400 that got 2x S-Log, Zebra, Gamma, HDR, has x70 EVF with long eyepoint, best AF-C/Eye... but it's far behind it... :(
And the joystick is placed in very bad place - too low to operate it comfortable during shooting. Dissapointing.

@Meteus1 How often do you shoot 120fps ? And btw the a6400 got a 1.9 crop in 120fps as well as half the bitrate so it's incredible soft with only 20mbps vs the X-T30's 40mbps. The viewfinder in the a6400 is nothing to write home about. I've used both the xt20 and a6400 and to me there's not a big difference. The viewfinder in the X-t3 is vastly superior

Moula: Most of X-T3? Well, IMHO the best feature of single digit X-T's are the direct control dials. So no, not the most.

How do you manage to use your smartphone without all the direct control dials?

it does have f-log and unlike the a6400 it's capable of 10bit video and the EVF isn't awful it's on par with Sony's APSC camera

supersteelman: not a fan boy to any company. they are just tools. I use nikon btw. and not a fan boy to them either. no mfr cares about their customers. they only care for the money. so stop being fan boys

bottom line, fuji has no market share. they have 2-3% at max. maybe that.

sony is around 22% or so.
theres no competition whatsoever. sony dominates over fuji

face the facts

If you are not a fan boy then why did you feel the need to point these things out ? Are Canon cameras superior to Sony because Sony have a tiny marketshare compared to them ?

Link | Posted on Feb 11, 2019 at 11:15 UTC

Why is it always Sony users that feel insecure and feel the need to ridicule others choice?

The Fujifilm X-t3 had all the features that it promised at release. This is just and update to the features already already there, but a lot of the time Fujifilm adds completely new features, also things that no other cameras are capable of like 4k 60fps HDR like in the previous. Sony very rarely adds new features and it has only happened during the last year because Fujifilm has pushed them to do it.

In reply to:

(unknown member): When you see this huge Panasonic body and the the relative small number of photos it can shoot on a battery, it' even more impressive what Sony has don in their latest a7III, a9, and a7RIII cameras with the battery life

Cipa tests means nothing. No one uses their camera like they do in those tests. In some of my photo shoots with the Fujifilm XT-3 I did more than 2000 shots on one battery

4sofnature: A6400 is the best hybrid ILC under $1000, period.

@CanonSharpShooter
In what way are they compareable ? The Fujifilm X-T3 is better in every way except from Eye-AF

Rich Evans: So much for the haters saying that this was dead on the water right? With this price and this good AF this is insane.

And by Tony Northrup tests this is killing the XT3 and previous Sony cameras in successful hit rate. I would imagine cameras with even poorer AF systems like the GH5 or EM1 will be left even more behind.

When it is released for the A9 is going to be crazy.

@Rich Evans WRONG!!!! Tony Northrup claims in the video that the A6400 does 4fps
https://youtu.be/T1TpyRRQBWU?t=681

And you don't need a grip to get more FPS on the X-T3. Stop making things up.

And like I said the results was only for Eye-AF and not any other tracking mode and the Sony was using a 2600$ lense.

You forgot to mention it does 4 fps, vs the X-T3's 11 fps, and this was only with eye-autofocus and with the x-t3 using one of its slowest lenses
