The Fujifilm X-Pro2 may be anything but a video cameras but that didn’t stop X-Photographer Kevin Mullins from making his very first mini-documentary with it.
The 2-minute video describes the artistic process of painter Geoff Ketcher, who also happens to be Kevin’s good friend.
To create the video, Kevin shot at 60fps in 1080 with the XF 23mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.2, interpreted it down to 25fps in Premiere Pro and graded it using Film Convert Pro. The film simulation mode was Standard (Provia) with the shadows, highlights, sharpness and colour set to zero.
As could only be expected, Kevin comments that it would have been easier to have a tilting screen like the one on the X-T1 and a live HDMI Out socket. However, he was pleased with the footage and feels it is enough for personal use.
For a first try, I have to say I’m very impressed by what Kevin was able to achieve!
