    Is anyone using the X-Pro 2 for video? Its not something I've really dabbled with before but I've been asked to record a school show and was looking for some advice on settings?

    Lacking Zebras and similar functions, it's mostly a WYSIWYG approach. IQ is pretty decent, though.

    There is no S-Log mode. The least contrasty film simulation would be Pro Neg. Std (sadly, contrast settings are ignored in video mode).

    You can use AF (AF-C) or MF. Depending on the light, MF may be the better option. Auto-ISO works between 200 and 3200, 6400 can be set manually. There are a few more tips in my upcoming X-Pro2 book, but since the video feature set is rather limited, there's not that much to learn about.

    Video looks really good out of the Pro2. Even when shooting less than ideal light. One thing to watch for is moire. It doesn't happen a lot, but the Pro2 is more prone to moire than most cameras in video.
