Fuji X-T

Andrew Stone
 

Hi Jake,
 
Hooked up an X-T3 to an Odyssey 7Q+ via the HDMI port. The X-T3 was set to UHD which they call 4K and the Odyssey was set to the Sony 4K/UHD to ProRes 422 setting at the time (last camera I connected was a Sony a7s). The camera and the recorder hooked up and recorded successfully to a Samsung 850 EVO Pro SSD 256GB. As well, I set the Odyssey to Other > 4K/UHD > ProRes 422 (instead of Sony), did a test recording and it worked as well. The X-T3 does DCI as well but only with internal recording. Convergent Design has a list of approved media on their website. The X-T3 also allows you, as you probably have discovered, to record different resoltuions internally to what you are doing externally. The Odyssey allows for a very clean down conversion to HD from UHD.

 But you did watch the Trailer?

Nothing like your usual “B” horror movie. I think?! I never go to those movies.

Anyway, it’s about the photography and camera choice.

I’d really love to test some fuji cameras but my big fear is always one: how to be sure the HDMI cable won’t break in 2 mins? Or disconnect itself? 
Any advice?

A few things.

1. The X-T3 does in fact output all resolutions including DCI 4K via the HDMI in 4:2:2 10 bit, up to 59.94. If the Odyssey isn't seeing it, then there's a configuration issue somehow or maybe a bad cable. Works perfectly with Atomos models. Camera shoots Log as well. 

2. The X-T3 is not the only camera on the market with the micro HDMI socket. In the future hopefully that will change. Just secure the cable to the body (like with a tether that goes to the strap mounting lugs), or use any of the multiple cages out there that provide a cable holding clamp of some kind. The door on the X-T3 is removable to facilitate this. Wooden Camera redesigned their HDMI clamp specifically for the X-T3, and they also created a nice P-Tap cable that goes inside the battery compartment for use with typical block batteries. Tilta and Small Rig cages work well also.

3. Perhaps "A Different Beyond" is not to everyone's taste, but it was a very bold step for Fujifilm and Matty to make something cutting edge that wasn't just a "beauty reel" and the usual thing. Matty said he treated the $1,500 X-T3 just as if it was a "regular" cine camera in order to fully demo it's capabilities. Again, considering the price point, the image quality is outstanding.

Hey Michael,

Are there any cable options for powering the xT3 via the usb c port? Ideally a usb c to d tap.

Cheers,
Ed

Yes, just use an Anker battery. Fujifilm lists a couple of them as recommended.

Any usb power pack that can deliver 9 volts (not the usual 5) will work via the USB-c port. Alternately wooden camera has made nice P tap cable that goes into the battery compartment. I prefer that method because it’s more secure

Hi Ed,

I tried this just this week and it seems that it will only charge through the USB port when the camera is off, and won't be powered through it while in use.

There are dummy batteries wired to D-tap available however. There's even a small "latch" in the lid of the battery compartment of the X-T3 to accommodate the wire coming out of it.

Don't know if that works for you.

Power via USB-C needs to 9 volt, not the standard 5volt that little USB packs provide. But a better option is get the P-Tap adapter from Wooden Camera that goes into the battery compartment. It's a much more elegant and more secure solution, and Ptap batteries are everywhere.

Guess i didn't try hard enough, 9V it is, thanks for the tips!

How else would we be able to do long time lapses. :-)

We use Anker batteries to power GoPro’s all day.
