Fuji Guys – FUJIFILM X-A7 – 4K Videos

January 8, 2020 1 By Kailee Schamberger


Welcome back everybody to the Fuji Guys.
My name is Jerry and in this video series of the top features of the X-A7,
I’m gonna go through the 4K video options and the different
movie options that you have in the menu. If you’re interested in knowing more about video keep watching. This camera is equipped with 4k. It
can record up to 15 minutes at a time in 4k or you can record up to 30 minutes in
1080. You have different frame rate options as well, like 4k 24p, but you also
have 1080 60p down to 24p as well as a 100P slow motion as well built into
the camera. So, let’s go through some of those video functions. First let’s
talk about actually accessing how to shoot video so you have two ways of
doing it. You can go to the drive options and then select the video or the movie
modes and then hit the shutter release to start recording video. Pretty simple,
but it adds an extra step. If I’m already shooting pictures and I have someone in
my family that’s doing something that I want to that I want to capture in video
very quickly then I can just hit this function button here and it’s programmed
to automatically start recording video based on my video recording settings so
I just hit that button and it immediately goes into video record mode
and begins the recording of the video. Pretty straightforward, you press it
again to stop. If we go into the menus and we’ll go into the video options and
this is where you have your movie mode so your different resolutions; 4k 30 as
I mentioned, 4k 24 with drop frames if you wish as well as Full-HD 60 as well.
So, if you need to just slow down your action you can actually
1080 60 and then do slow motion from that. But, there is high-speed video
recording as well; up to four times at 25P playback so but it records at 100P,
and then we have the video countdown recording so you can either do 15
seconds 30 seconds or 1 minute. Some of the social media platforms are limited
to how much video you can actually post so this will actually give you a
countdown timer so you can actually time yourself while you’re recording. You have
different focus modes, digital image stabilizer as well to get an even
smoother image and I recommend you keep that on especially if you’re vlogging.
You can set your ISO here as well to either a set ISO or to auto. Now, the
camera can record 4k but it can record either 4k to the card or to HDMI and you
can actually have the HDMI recorder actually control the recording of it as
well. And, you have some mic adjustments as
well so on the side of the camera I’m just gonna close the screen here on the
side of the camera we do have the microphone input it’s a 2.5mm
mic input, but included is a 3.5 mm adapter, so that you can
adapt to any of your third-party microphones that you might be using.
If you’re using the Fujifilm ST-1 mic, it is native a 2.5 millimeter so it will just
plug in automatically and you can choose whether or not that port is a
microphone or a remote as well. I like using that as a remote cable when I’m
doing long exposures and I have the RR-100 Fujifilm cable remote. As
I mentioned in the video modes or in the film simulation part of the top features,
film simulations are also available to you in video recording mode so I’m just
gonna go to say manual mode here for a video I’m gonna go to our
little arrow here and you can see our film simulation. This also
applies whether you’re shooting in stills or if you’re shooting in video
mode. There’s our black and white I’m gonna keep the black and white and then
oh I was not in video mode so now I’m gonna record video. It went right into
video mode as soon as I hit that little quick release. Really, really convenient!
I don’t have to go and change into a video mode anymore. This concludes this
feature of the 4k recording for the X-A7 If you have any questions, feel free to
post them up down below to watch more of the other feature videos we’ll have the
links posted in the description. We’ll also have the playlist here up in the
top corner as well. Until next time, I’m Jerry of the Fuji Guys.
