X30 Shutter Lag?
I am looking to replace my current casual travel camera and the X30 is on my short list of candidates as an upgrade-replacement. The First Impression Review on the new Fujifilm X30 states, "On a more negative note is that the X30 requires holding the shutter release for about a second before it wakes up, which was a problem on the X20 as well.". Does this mean that there is always a one second interval between pressing the shutter button and the having the scene be captured or does this imply that that it takes a second to focus and capture the scene? A one second delay would seem to be a problem when your trying to photograph kids, animals, etc. that may look at you when you do something to attract their attention, but then quickly look away. Can anyone clarify this for me?
If you let the camera go to sleep, (5 minutes on inactivity, or whatever setting you chose), waking it up from sleep will require that you hold the shutter for 1 second. If it's not sleeping, depressing the shutter should result in almost immediate capture. Continue Reading
Does the Fujifilm X30 have a port for a shutter release cable ?
You can get also an answer here... :) The X 30 has two ports for shutter release cable, you can use the USB port and you can use the 2.5mm microphone jack. I use the 2.5mm jack and my old Canon RS60-E3 cable release, this works well. Continue Reading
FYI for future reference most of the time the owners manual can be downloaded from the Fuji site. On occasion B&H Photo will link owners manuals to all their cameras on the Overview page of the given camera. Continue Reading
Considering an X30 purchase,but concerned about enlargements. Any opinions on size limits?
How large do you plan on printing? I've printed 10MP Leica M8 files @ 12" x 18" without any problems and great image quality. Just set the PPI to 240 and you get a 12" x 18" image. The X30 is a 12MP camera so it should print that size with ease. The bigger you print the longer the viewing distance. Continue Reading
I usually don't print larger than 13X19,but 20x30 once in a while. Continue Reading
