      43:06 - I can't set this up.

    3. Tyler Alexis

      Incredible video. I've been excitedly waiting the arrival of my xt3 and now I'm even more excited. Thanks for all the help!

    4. trahwerdna

      Thank you so much for taking the time to create this tutorial! Outstanding job! I feel like I should be paying you for this..

    5. Jacqueline Wong

      when you said you wana take a good picture back in the old time and u knew it in your brain but couldnt transform onto the camera. it's so true and this is what im going thru right now....T_T

    6. Doris Chuang

      Do you think it worth of buying xt4 if i don't really need videos? Thank you!

    7. Anantam Bisht

      I dont have this lens where there is A and all?

    8. Killa K Glamorous

      Wow this is so informative and I feel so uneducated now! I thought I knew so much and have so much to learn not only because I never had a Fuji and I'm new to it but even before I sold my Canon 5D MK IV I didn't get the most out of my camera as I should've. I wish I had educated myself sooner! Do you have a breakdown like this for the 5D mk iv?

      1. Michael The Maven

        Yes- Canon 5D4 Crash Course

    9. Alejo Segovia

      Waooo excellent tutorial, thank you, thank you very much for sharing, I recently purchased a fuji xt3, with the 18-55 kit lens ... and I am learning again, it has cost me a bit to interact with the new camera, I am especially concerned about the sharpness I still can't do it with the kit lens ... I'm emigrating from Nikon D750 and it really hasn't been easy at all to change equipment, I love the new tools, the versatility, the weight, the compactness, the easy to carry and in. It is special to go unnoticed with the new equipment, among the many things that I love about this equipment is how easy it is to work with the different menu options, and its interrelation with the rear screen, here I have taken many tips, to configure, for Of course you have to put them into practice ... Thank God there is PAprom and excellent tutorial videos like yours, again grateful, I also thank the translation services since otherwise I would still be lost with graduation and cont role of the xt3 .... Receive a fraternal hug from Venezuela ....

    10. Gene Campanelli

      This was soooooo helpful!! Thanks you!!

    11. Paul Wesson

      As a new Xt3 owner this video is hugely helpful - Thanks Michael!

    12. Aripjeet Sidhu

      Oh my god I god such a nice piece of information. Can't thank you enough for that. This was hella helpful thanks a lot.



    14. TomBoyNI

      Thank you so much for making this video, every new user should watch it, I'm now about to go back and watch again just to let things sink in a little further. I'll be taking your crash course soon too. Great work!

    17. Chili Dog McChilison

      Thank you so much for this video! I just bought an X-T3 with the 18-55 2.8-4 lens and your tutorial is helping me so much!

    18. Dave Prospect Bicycles

      Michael, thanks for this, absolutely brilliant training video and helped me tremendously to start figuring out this incredible camera.

    19. Paul Koehrsen

      Oops! I am one my husband's email account.

    20. Paul Koehrsen

      Hi Michael, I took a dive and bought myself an X-T3. I hope I won't regret it. I have always been a Nikon girl. But after hearing about the Fujifilm camera, I've got to see for myself. Your tutorial is absolute life saver! It is so easy to follow. Thank you so, so much! One question regarding the letter A on the lens. My 18-55mm lens does not have it. Is it on anywhere else or does the camera automatic set itself automatically if I set it in Auto Mode?

    21. spinachpies

      Thank you for this. I have an XA5 but a lot of your tips were relevant and the interface isn't too dissimilar!

    22. vertigo531

      I wanted to thank you for this video it's been very helpful

    23. Grit Sripaurya

      Now I know how to use my x-t3

    24. Alan Sadler

      Great help and many thanks.

    25. Abdul Azeez Pulikkool

      An excellent resource, thank you so much

    26. P.K. Subban

      Thank you kind sir. I just bought a brand new X-T3! This video helped a lot. Got my thumbs up!

    27. Marin Stefan

      life saver tutorial man! highly appreciatedddddd

    28. Alex J

      Excellent video man. Thank you.

    29. Marta Curto

      Hi Michael, so I just bought this camera, and thanks, a lot of help from you! Just one question, you said that when you work at weddings you use the aperture priority, as you are working with different lighting, but then you also have a lot of movement, specially when they are leaving the church, with all the flowers, or dancing later. In what mode do you photograph?

      1. Michael The Maven

        Aperture Priority Mode - AFC Focusing

    30. Erick White

      You lost me a bit on the WB, will have to revisit that explanation but it reminds me of explaining current flow in electrical circuits. Technically the electrons are moving from the negative to the positive but electricity travels positive to negative.

    31. alex daniel fechete

      You are a very good teacher. I really appreciate the fact that you know how to teach in an absolutely innovative way. keep it like this . You are the coolest youtuber.

      1. Michael The Maven

        Thank you Alex

    32. mazdaram226

      Cheers mate , ordered this camera after this brilliant tutorial and thanks for inspiring my journey in this complex world of photography.

    33. Nancy Garner

      I just got the Fujifilm FX4. Will you be doing a video on it? I subscribe so I guess I'll know

      1. Michael The Maven

        It’s already published!

    34. Joseph He


    35. Dimitris Mastroyiannis

      Hi, does anyone know a fix for the XT3 to stop/turn off keeping the aperture wide open unless you half-press the shutter? I would love to be able to preview my selected exposure without half-pressing the shutter. Thanks!

    36. Noble

      Just received my XT-3 today! This is my first camera. I've been watching videos before I purchased it but this video is awesome. It would have taken me forever to learn this thing. Definitely subscribing. Thank you. 👍🏾👏🏿

    37. Michael Gimenez

      The app is extremely bad though but nothing to do with your great tutorial but really worthless app (I have a Samsung 8+). I can download my old material but not the one I took with my X-t3 : it makes not much sense!

    38. Michael Gimenez

      Absolutely amazing tutorial! Exactly what I was looking for! Very pedagogical! Thank you so much! I am new to Fuji and now I don't feel so anymore!

    39. The Unschooled

      FYI, I saw many 1 star review on the iOS App Store due to the app not being updated for the newer iOS versions. And, I can't even connect via bluetooth to my iPhone! SMH

      1. Michael The Maven

        It’s quite buggy

    40. The Unschooled

      Thank you for this Mr. Michael.

    41. bt465

      4k 60?

    42. Toro

      Hi, I have an XT-3, but I am having trouble moving my files from the camera using usb cable. I already set it as USB, but when I connect the cable to my PC nothing happens. So I just use a card reader instead. But I really need the the option for usb transferring, please help. Thanks before

    43. Danielle Pomeroy

      Fantastic, so happy I found your channel, have subscribed. Just picked up my Xt4 today and having switched from Canon, its quite confusing. Not exactly the same as the Xt3 but close enough. Thank you.

    44. Ricardo Gonçalves

      Hello, I Just bought a xt3 and I'm starting in this world, but somethings are quit confusing.... So my doubt is: for me this camera don't do what was suppose to do, at 22:25 moment the f value became red because doesn't keep up the shutter speed, its ok, but in my opinion the instagram+metring scale should indicate the amount of light that I have with that setings!! Should´t I? I would like to see the amount of exposure that I have and I don't have idea...... Is something that I miss..... If I´m decreasing the time I should have a exposure reading preview of that particular setup..... Ths for this video... helps a lot :)

    45. Vinh Nguyen

      Great video to watch and learn. Thanks so much for posting this. But there is a question I would like to ask, I could not figure out how to set my XT3 to display the whole Face/Eye detection menu to appear on the LCD to scroll up and down to select the choice like you did (in the minute 44:05) by assigned the function to Fn1 button, please show me how. Thanks.


      I can’t believe this is free video camera channel 👍

    47. Divine Fools Club

      My face detect function button only turns it off or on, it doesn't allow me to access the settings like eye mode etc. And it's not in the Fn buttons menu so I can't add it.

      1. Divine Fools Club

        I found it, it's in the Q menu but for some reason only accessible there.

    48. Divine Fools Club

      How do you wifi transfer to PC? I can set it up with all the right software and settings but don't know how to get it to actually transfer. The wireless comm button doesn't work.

      1. Divine Fools Club

        Nevermind, I figured it out but wooowwwww it's slow.

    49. deklerk danny

      Thank you Sir.

    50. Radoslav Nikolic

      Thank you for a great and really detailed video! It helped me a lot! After less than 2h I went from knowing absolutely nothing to being able to use this camera.

    51. Nathan Zeng

      very helpful!!

    52. Katana

      Best Fuji camera instructions, thank you bro.

    53. Reb C

      I watched this over a year ago! And I still believe it is the BEST tutorial on the XT3 out there, bar none.! Some others are pretty good but Michael's the best. I'm dropping the mic...!!

    54. sin

      please make one for the x-t4!!

    55. Robert Kamer

      Hi Michael, thank you for this extensive video. I hope you and your loved ones are well in these tumultuous times. I have had the X-T3 for well over a year now, saw this tutorial around that time, bought your complete course immediately as well. But, as life got in the way, I have not really had the time to dive into your tutorials, untl now that is (the past year I've just been winging it guerilla style). But now that I'm diving in, I come across one thing. At 43' (face detection), when you press fn1, you get a selection menu with 5 options, whereas I get a toggle ('off' or 'face on / eye auto'). Any way to fix that? I can't find it.

      1. Michael The Maven

        Firmware update changed this. It’s no longer available this way for some reason

    56. Oliver Preen

      Very handy video even for someone with a FujiX100V

    57. N. Roy Singh

      TY for putting something like this together. I know its a lot of work, and i appreciate it! Thumbs up!

    58. Cloud9Photography

      Does anyone know how to set the Fuji XT3 so that when your shooting a sunset in video mode and your in aperture priority and the light starts getting low and the camera is reducing the shutter speed, to make it do so smoothly without making it flicker because it goes down in far to much steps of light? my sony A7R2 does it flawlessly and smoothly without any flickering so i know this camera should be able to as well..i just dont know how to set it to reduce the shutter speed smoothly instead of big jerky steps like it does now

    73. Edward Greenberg

      Michael I really appreciate all your information on the Xt-3 . I have your crash course as well, but I am having a hard time getting the magnifying function working when I press the real dial in. Is there another setting that needs to be set in the menu? Also howdo I get the peeking to work when I am in manual plus auto focus mode to work? I have it set up in the menu. Thanks.

    74. Modular Home Additions Ltd

      Amazing video and amazing that is FREE! The world needs more people like you.

    75. Lakis Lambrianides

      with image quality it gives me only two options, fine or normal. No raw at all. Please advice

    76. Oscar Liang

      Just bought your crash course to support you! And I want to say thank you for making this video, watched it when I first bought the XT3, now watching it again a year later I am still learning new things! Keep up with the great work!

      1. Michael The Maven

        Oscar Liang thank you so much Oscar! I really appreciate your support!

    81. BC farm realtor 温哥华农地买卖

      Hi Andrew, could you explain how to customize different AF mode under different C, from C1 to C 4 for instance? I am not able to save AF mode under different C, as if it is changed, AF mode all changed to the same mode under different C , not very smart, maybe I am wrong:) Alec

      1. Michael The Maven

        BC farm realtor 温哥华农地买卖 No I’m talking about the auto focus mode switch on the front of the camera

      2. BC farm realtor 温哥华农地买卖

        Metering mode is controlled by rotating dial, however AF mode are controlled by menu buttons, they looks very similar with four similar mode, dear Andrew, how these two functions differentiate from each other?

      3. BC farm realtor 温哥华农地买卖

        Michael The Maven you are talking about metering mode, I guess, :)

      4. Michael The Maven

        Your auto focus modes are controlled by the rotating dial in the front of the camera that says “MCS”- And therefore there is no reason to customize them elsewhere

    82. soviet belle YYC

      I came from Nikon system and I was excited to use this. Drove me crazy trying to figure it out. Blessed to have found this, otherwise, I would have reverted back to Nikon 😂

    83. FlatulEssence

      Thanks. This is the most comprehensive tutorial I have watched for Fuji XT3. Great information. Must watch, before even delving into the complicated camera manual.

    84. Simon Bickersteth

      I have just purchased the xt3 having previously owned a Canon. This video is extremely helpful. Thank you so much.

    85. Tom Sumner

      Thanks Mike great job most helpful - I will get into the crash courses

    86. Kapil Kesavan

      Thank you so much for the detailed tutorial.

    87. Bruce Crocker

      Best resource for learning the features of this camera that I've found. Michael not only knows the camera, but he knows how to explain things clearly.

    88. Valkia-INNOS

      The most complete camera tutorial with an amazing practical explain way and although i still use film most of times (on my free time)... this video made me wanting to try Fuji xt3.

      This is an incredibly useful video for which I can go back to each time. Coming from being a Sony shooter (because I thought they had the best ease of use for a newcomer) but the character I have found with the X-T3 is incredible and so much fun but definitely needed this video for the small things. Cheers !

      Omg thank you so much. I just upgraded from a Canon rebel t6i and was very lost with this amazing product. Thank you for taking the time and effort to make a great video. And thank you for the opening "don't be frustrated" I'm so stressed with trying to learn a new camera and editing software, I felt like giving up, I really needed to hear that.
