Since I switched camera systems from Sony to Fujifilm, I noticed a change in how I take photos.
I use the tripod less often and take more photos handheld.
There are two main reasons for such a change:
First, the Fujifilm XT2 produces better quality high ISO images. When shooting with the Sony a6000, I always tried to keep the ISO at bay around 100 to 200. But, the Fuji XT2 produces clean photos at an ISO 800. I am no longer afraid of shooting landscapes with an ISO 1000.
Second, the Fuji XT2 has an advanced Auto ISO functionality. It calculates the minimum acceptable Shutter Speed value based on the focal length in use.
For example, I have the Fujinon 18-135mm attached to the camera, so the Auto ISO sets a different minimum Shutter Speed when I shoot at 18mm, 70mm, or 135mm. [Read more…]
