Hello all!

I use a Canon T4i for my stop motion but am getting ready to upgrade to a better camera. Like the 5D Mark ii or maybe even the Mark iv. But I've noticed the growing popularity and success of mirrorless cameras. I have a FujiFilm X100 that I just love for street photography and am wondering if I should jump off the Canon train and join the FujiFilm club with the X-T2. But I want to get what is best for making stop motion.

Any thoughts or suggestions? Has anyone had experience shooting stop motion with an X-T2?

Thank you!

Collin,

I'm wondering the same thing!


What I'm really keen on is even though the sensors are not as big as the 5D's, I have a feeling it might be just fine for stop-mo.

I wonder how the overheating works with this, since it would be awful to have to touch the camera mid-shoot to turn it on again, or does it work like Canons, that can be turned on via Dragonframe? :o 

I'm quite interested in having a manual aperture lens, to reduce flickering, and the compatibility it may have with a lot of old lenses because it is a mirrorless camera intrigues me, I'd love to hear anything more people might have to see on this subject <3

Any disadvantages? Any advantages?
