16 Feb Fujifilm in the Wild
Modern cameras and lenses are packed with features designed to meet the diverse needs of a range of photographers. Many photographers who specialise in a specific genre may find they only use a small proportion of their camera’s features for most of their photography. As a photographer specialising in wildlife, I certainly class myself as one of these.
This Fujiholics blog post looks at the key features I use for wildlife photography. It’s not a review of every customisation or setting I use for my cameras, just those that I feel are key to succeeding with wildlife photography. So, I’m not going to talk about how long you set your image review for, raw or jpg, colour spaces, custom button functions etc. There are six main areas, exposure modes, autofocus, continuous shooting, shutters, focus limiters and boost mode.
Currently, my main camera body is the fantastic Fujifilm X-H1 with the 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 lens. For this blog post, I will be sharing and explaining how and why I set up my X-H1 for wildlife photography. I also use a X-T2, mainly with a 50-140mm f/2.8 and although the feel of the camera bodies differ greatly, I can still set them up in an almost identical way.
Before I continue, I don’t intend this to sound like it is the only approach. I believe it is an efficient and intuitive approach which I use most of the time as it provides me with the most consistency. There will always be exceptions in any situations and other set ups or methods do exist! […]
