Fuji XT-2 and the 100-400mm for low level Lake District Jets

Fuji XT-2 and the 100-400mm for low level Lake District Jets

I have recently been testing the Fuji XT-2 twinned with the Fuji 100-400mm for low level flying photographs in the Lake District. This is not a review of the XT-2 just a few examples of what I have captured during the short time I have had so far. It’s certainly a different beast compared to my Canon 5D MK 3 cameras. 11 frames per second, a lightweight camera body and an additional battery grip all sounds a little too good to be true! But is it? I have included a slideshow video from my youtube channel. Photographs can be viewed at a higher resolution this way. Most of the photographs were captured at 160th second and F5.6. The last few photographs are captured at 1000th second at 11 frames per second in boost mode. The battery grip is a handy feature for both comfort and performance.

Strong early morning light and the RAF Tornado was a challenge for the EVF. My learning process was to flag any stray light with my right handed glove….

I love photographing the props of these low level beasts at a slow shutter speed.

The 35mm equivalent focal range of the Fuji 100-400mm is appox 150-600mm. Perfect for the little Tucanos and 160th of a second.
