I would love to have a mirrorless fuji. I've been trying to save for it But a baby is coming so it's been so difficult. Amazing videos. There are many people who doesn't relay on fuji but I see amazing colors in that brand! Reply Marlon Caballero says: March 19, 2019 at 3:07 pm Great video man thanks 🙏🏻 been waiting for this video from you. Def keep these videos coming. Your one of the reasons I grabbed the xt3 and no regrets here 🔥. Reply mystic gem says: March 19, 2019 at 6:04 pm Just switched from Canon to the all-glorious Fuji XT3 and I’ve never been happier! I’m looking into shooting weddings with it so this video couldn’t have arrived at a better time! Someone with a Canon 5DMark iii actually told me I should “go buy a full frame body instead if I want to shoot weddings” LOL. Anyway, I’m grateful for this video, thank you! Reply yonatan soler says: March 19, 2019 at 7:50 pm Great video! Any way to remove the detele “all images” as an option when hitting the trash icon? Reply AlishaCamille says: March 19, 2019 at 7:54 pm omg! mine is coming today perfect timing so excited!!!!! Reply Noealz - Rain Photography says: March 20, 2019 at 12:18 am I heard there was a recent problem with the latest firmware that if the battery died it removed all your saved settings, does it affect your camera? Reply Brandon Burridge says: March 20, 2019 at 1:43 pm Compressed is such a life saver. I always get by with 64s now Reply Michael Lesher says: March 20, 2019 at 5:09 pm I’ve had my XT3 for a while and am comfortable with it after a lot of experimentation/manual reading, but I found your video really concise and practical. Nice work! Reply Adolf Boluda says: March 20, 2019 at 5:33 pm Do you really have your color space in sRGB instead of Adobe RGB? Reply QCCanales says: March 20, 2019 at 5:57 pm I wonder why you modified highlight, shadow and sharpness if youre shooting raw.. Its the same thing as film sims, does not affect the raw file Reply laevavictoria says: March 20, 2019 at 7:27 pm I don't even have this camera but I want one so bad that I just see it in videos and dream about it lol. Nice work John! New follower. Reply Raimonds Timbars says: March 20, 2019 at 8:08 pm John – I got my X-T3 1h ago!!! Went to WEX London before night shift and got one!!! Can't wait to start using it!!! Got it with 2 lenses!!! Reply Phineas Gage says: March 21, 2019 at 4:33 am Great video. How many bodies do you carry and which lenses do you prefer? Reply ROD9569 says: March 21, 2019 at 2:37 pm ordered mine an enjoyed this will you be doing anything on lenses you use. Reply revive says: March 21, 2019 at 8:43 pm I'm buying a camera in the next month but I'm still wondering if I should get the XT3 or the A7iii. I'm mainly shooting videos (music videoclips, music shows and also documentary work). I love to take photo too. If I wanted only to take photos I'd grab the XT3 in a heartbeat but I'm scared of its low light capabilities. Shooting music shows and clips I'm often in low light condition. Can someone help me? Reply tru nguyen says: March 22, 2019 at 1:20 am I would like to know how you edit Fuji files in LR Reply Didier Karibian says: March 22, 2019 at 3:26 am C'est beaucoup mieux d'inverser Fn 4 Et Fn5,sinon,merci,good voice and music Reply MarkowskyArt says: March 22, 2019 at 9:05 pm Thanks for making great videos like this! I've just switched from the Canon system that I've used for over 10 years, and it's both very exciting but also very overwhelming. This video is super helpful! Well done! Reply JMOS PHOTOGRAPHY says: March 23, 2019 at 1:44 pm We def have a similar setup. 🙌🏼 Reply Benjamin Kanarek says: March 25, 2019 at 2:02 pm I strongly suggest, that if you wish to extract the best out of your Fujifilm RAW images, use Capture One Pro. The differences between Lightroom and Capture One are flagrant. No wormy artifacts, much cleaner output, almost MF look and definitely on par with many FF systems. Of course, Nikon, Canon, etc, can use Lightroom with no problem. It is only Fujifilm that has problems in Lightroom. I know, I use two major systems, Nikon FF (4 bodies) and Fujifilm (5 bodies, 3 x X-T3's, X-H1 and X-T20). Reply mark baily says: March 25, 2019 at 8:20 pm Great video. As you use bbf do u leave the front dial on m or do u leave it on s. Trying to get back into back button focusing and read lots of people use it differently Reply Wallets246 says: March 25, 2019 at 11:05 pm Really helpful video, thanks! Reply aldeen1982 says: March 26, 2019 at 8:14 pm Love your work bro! Do you use only Lighroom for editing? People say Capture One is way better for Fuji RAW Files because it can handle the Fuji Sensor Pattern better than Lightroom can! Would appreciate if you could help me! Thank you! Keep up the great job man! And btw: I am thinking of switching from my X-H1 to the X-T2 or maybe the X-T3. You think the overall speed is worth the money spend on the X-T3? Reply Raimonds Timbars says: March 27, 2019 at 7:00 pm John – how do I transfer videos from the camera to my phone? Or you need to upload them onto computer? Does Fuji app allow to transfer videos to your phone at all? Please help 😖 Reply Hans Rosemond says: March 29, 2019 at 12:16 pm Hey man! I met you at the Forever Bridal show last year. You enjoying your XT3? Reply Tim Brown says: April 2, 2019 at 6:39 pm As with many here, I've just switched from Canon to the XT-3. Thank you very much for your help so that I can get out and start shooting instead of spending hours with the manual. Really, really helpful. Reply Keshia Enns says: April 2, 2019 at 7:53 pm Powered through all your videos (your content is gold!!), ordered the xt3, came in just this morning and this video was spot on perfect to get me rolling!! My only question is with this button/dial set up where can I zoom in to check focus or how would one go about setting that up most efficiently? Thanks so much John!! Reply Anthony M says: April 4, 2019 at 5:22 am I am hooked with my XT3….I love my 5D4 but I just cannot detach myself from my Fuji. Reply L A M P Photography says: April 10, 2019 at 5:26 am I just can not understand why anyone would thumbs down this video?! It's great!!!! Reply Rocco Daniele says: April 12, 2019 at 10:11 am Hi! Have your weddings been shot with Fuji XT3? Reply Alex Cerescu says: April 13, 2019 at 1:20 pm Hi John. Enjoyed rue video and looking for more info about lighting system that u use for wedding. Recommendations? I probably will switch to Fuji from Canon so… a bit concerned about light as in speedlites Reply Mahck Media says: May 6, 2019 at 5:08 am Nice man! big learning curve coming from my Sony NEX7. Reply K. Adam Christensen says: May 13, 2019 at 7:23 pm You mentioned using a Canon flash. Is that all manual? Does it do HSS or TTL at all? Thanks. Reply Tom Shenton says: May 17, 2019 at 9:19 pm Hey John! Awesome video. How do you like to set up your two memory cards, sequencial…backup? I've only ever had 1 slot until today so interested on your thoughts. Thanks very much 🙂 Reply Mamiya Phan says: May 20, 2019 at 8:48 am That's a beautiful camera! Reply Waway Ramdan says: June 3, 2019 at 7:49 pm please gimme the X-T30 setting for wedding photography dude ! Reply Kristie Jochim says: June 5, 2019 at 3:17 pm Out of curiosity do you always use your histogram to figure out your exposure or do you watch your exposure compensation scale? I feel like I usually underexpose on my Fuji. What you see is what you get isn’t exactly true. Sometimes it depends how bright your lcd or evf is. Thank you! Reply V PR says: June 12, 2019 at 10:33 am Why i am watching this. I dont have even fujifilm camera! 🙂 And still watching! GAS incoming. Reply Richard Edwards says: June 27, 2019 at 11:43 am Thanks John! JUst bought one so this is very helpful Reply Lewis Ashley says: June 27, 2019 at 3:47 pm Hey bro! Please help me out, just picked an xt3 up with the battery grip! Can I get 3rd party battery’s or should I stick to the original Fuji battery’s? Reply Ishijah1 says: July 14, 2019 at 10:10 am I switch over to Fujilove Reply Kevin Saputra says: July 22, 2019 at 8:52 am amazing!!! Reply Luis Salazar says: July 29, 2019 at 5:50 am Hey brother from a different mother. I am so glad you were able to help me with this camera xt3 I was very frustrated because I am coming from Film and believe me I was frustrated it and thanks to you I still have the camera.😎 Reply zeki rami says: August 10, 2019 at 11:09 pm Great vedio yeas I just switch to fuji bought my first fuji camera 📷 xt30 and I really like it .. is it x3 and xt30 similar? I know the x3 better Reply Mercilius Hawke says: August 21, 2019 at 3:26 pm So helpful. I can’t thank you enough! Reply Kristie Jochim says: August 23, 2019 at 4:36 pm Since you use back button focus do you tend to focus and recompose a lot or do you move your focus point around with the joystick? Reply joel yagi says: August 31, 2019 at 2:26 pm Great videos they've helped me a lot in my switch from canon. Can you make a video on how your shooting in low lit churches and the receptions? Tried my xt3 out in a low light environment and came out much grainy than expected so maybe you can help me out! Reply Alfio Lora says: September 4, 2019 at 3:51 am I cannot get the front command to change aperture. Tried just about everything. Can you help me Reply T L says: September 6, 2019 at 1:43 pm can't believe he skipped the color space… i took a digital printing background so i know a bit about the importance of color.. and you WOULD WANT to change it to Adobe RGB it gives you more range when it comes to editing ..unless you just want to post photos on a website and not make them into prints then you can just keep to sRGB but its the same as like i will want to shoot jpeg ONLY for everything where instead u could have picked RAW +JPEG and still ahve the option to edit if you need to Reply Jupiter Fry says: September 7, 2019 at 1:56 pm Hi John, I don't know if anybody else has said this so forgive me if they have, but you mentioned in your video how you don't change the colour space when shooting in Raw. In the video it was set to srgb. Maybe it was a mistake but you really should be shooting in Adobe colour space and converting afterwards to srgb once processed purely for web viewing. I'm sure you knew this and it is probably a mistake but I just couldn't help noticing it. Reply Simbarashe Cha says: September 15, 2019 at 1:05 pm Really lovely video, consider me subscribed. I would like to offer a suggestion, even though you're in "America", for photography purposes to consider switching your guides from feet to meters. The reason is twofold: first, a lot of portrait lens have a min focusing distance of 1m. So, if you can get used to knowing what 1m is, it becomes SUPER handy esp when shooting in fast, close-range events like receptions and parties. For example, if you're handling a camera that sucks with AF in super low light even though you're using a flash, you can set the manual focus distance to 1 or 1.5 meters and just shoot everything based on physical distance (this is an old school film photog's trick and it's much, must faster to work this way) couple this with a wide aperture like F5.6 or F8 will ensure that you will nail more shots than you'll miss with a nice wide depth of field. The other reason knowing 1m minimum is super handy outdoors; whenever you're manually focusing and doing street photography at a wider aperture like F8, it's much easier to extrapolate distances based on a factor of 10 (meters) than a factor of 12 (feet to a yard). For example, let's say you're photographing me across a one way street in NYC; is it easier for you to guess that is 22 feet or 7 meters? A yard is about the same as a meter but there are no yards on a lens… If you know the minimum distance of 1m (it's basically one big step forward or backward), you can pace out meters in steps without a ruler. Then you know a one lane street is 7 meters from sidewalk to sidewalk, a 2 lane street maybe 10 meters. Operating with smaller numbers and knowing 1, 3, 5-10 meters will give you so much more confidence about sniping in virtually any conditions. Think about it! Reply Tony Willis says: October 4, 2019 at 10:45 am Excellent video! Reply Shouvik Bandyopadhyay says: October 24, 2019 at 5:55 pm Is there multiple exposure control option like xpro3 in xt3? Reply Jennifer L R says: October 26, 2019 at 11:55 pm I just switched to fujifilm and I’m a bit overwhelmed! Thanks for this video. Reply thephotocollective says: November 4, 2019 at 7:09 pm Do you recommend any flash for the xt3? Reply Mihaly Lukacs says: November 29, 2019 at 11:14 pm Just bought an XT-3 and I'm very excited. I'm a huge RAW fan, having recently gotten used to editing them from my old Canon DSLR and realizing just how more versatile they are. Is there any advantage to using uncompressed RAW files, you said you don't lose info with compression? Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
