Fujifilm X-T2 vs Nikon D750 and Nikon D500

There have been a lot of Nikon vs Fujifilm comparisons lately and I am not surprised. Nikon is even lagging behind Canon since the release of the Canon M5. They are the only major manufacture to not release a serious mirrorless camera. Hopefully things will turn around for Nikon this year, but if Nikon doesn’t release a mirrorless camera soon we might have a lot of new FujiAddicts.

Fujifilm Blog Car Tracking Settings

  • Shutter dial set to ’T’ (and locked). Shutter speed selected on rear command dial
  • Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) on.
  • Metering set to Centre Weighted.
  • Autofocus – AF-C with camera set to ‘boost’ to improve reaction time.
  • AF custom setting on Set 3 (Accelerating / decelerating subject)
  • AF Mode to Single Point or Zone (3×3 points) – I prefer Single Point for more accuracy with cars amongst the trees and other obstacles such as spectators.
  • Drive set to CH (8 or 11 fps)
  • Action freezing images – 1/500 to 1/1000s with aperture wide open. Adjust ISO accordingly.  Try to avoid freezing the wheels so the car looks like it is parked on the road.
  • Panning images – 1/125s or 1/60s choose a suitable aperture and drop the ISO down to 200/400.
  • People shots – Autofocus to AF-S and use wide aperture to isolate the subject from the background when using telephoto lenses.

    I only have seen the first video with nikon750. My question is can you ever do a test like this without using the same lens? In no way denigrating the gentleman’s work. I am curious that is all.
