This may apply to other bodies too. The following is a response on another forum where suggestions to fix a freezing XT2 were made to - try different batteries, reset the camera, remove battery grip and swap SD cards. On several forums I've read of problems with Lexar cards and this seems to increase the likelihood of them being the cause of problems and since Lexar are moving out of the memory card business maybe it's a good time to mention this. Not all Lexar will cause problems but enough to be worthwhile warning about. IMO and although several others makes are used successfully, Sandisk Extreme Pro 95MBs Class 10 or UHS II (for video) are the best cards for Fuji and known to have a fast enough write speed. Some high capacity cards are known to be slower than (say) 64gb cards. Apparently the camera does a high speed read of the card prior to writing so - more space there is to read, the longer it takes. Worth thinking about anyway.
"ok so while i was picking up equipment this weekend I bought a pair of 64g extreme pro cards from sandisk. Turns out you were right, most of my problems with the x-t2 are gone, which completely baffles me. I don't understand how a memory card can affect a camera so much, in speed responsiveness and glitches.
I hate to say it, but for a year it seems I haven't been using the x-t2 to it's full potential because of these ?%$?%$?%$ lexar cards. Even the iphone app is faster !
I'll still test a bit more but so far... things are fixed."
Hello, this is my first post on this forum. I recently got the X-T2 after shooting (Raw only) with the XT-1 for a while, a camera for which i was very happy with the result i was getting. As i am now in a testing phase of the X-T2 i shot strictly JPEGs over the weekend, using the Kodachrome, Velvia and Acros settings.
now, by looking at the results, a lot of them are really not that sharp, and quite a few look like they are "patchy" or noisy - and this is with enough speed, low iso and almost exclusively F2..does anyone have the same experience? or does the JPEG filter process take "over" the image that much that it makes it look almost "animated" in the details
images were all shot handheld
looking forward to your thoughts and comments
