I bought a Fuji XT3 !

Well it kind of suprised me that I'd buy something that wasn't Canon, Panasonic or Sony. However I wanted a small, affordable, well specced B cam for gimbal use, and 2nd angle on interviews next to my main camera. 10bit 400mbit iFrame or LGOP 4K60/30/24p was the deal sealer for me. No excuses for quality or 8 bit. So I'm doing a series on the camera and here are the first 3 videos I've done over the last month. Staying busy as always. Looking to getting back to posting on this site too.

Sigma 50-100 Autofocus Lens Test and YouTube is killing off video embedding

Doing some tests on the amazing Sigma 50-100 Art lens and autofocus on the C300 Mk2

In other news, YouTube has revamped its UI and seems to of removed the ability to generate an embed link. Very bad. Maybe simple ommission but pretty likely not. Maybe they want everyone to go back to putting video ciips on their websites back onto their own servers like the very bad old days, or maybe a paid service more likely is in the works. May be interesting, may be quite ugly.... we'll see soon I'm sure.
