I set my X100F to On/Off Switch (S) to get the latter behavior, since I don’t like holding down the button in order to lock autofocus. Brilliant. I found this article very helpful for thinking through my shooting parameters – and I don’t even have a Fuji ! I almost always leave it on, because otherwise it can be difficult to tell which areas of the photo are as sharp as possible, even with something like focus peaking enabled. Fujifilm X100F Film Simulation Settings Posted on May 7, 2018 by Ritchie Roesch There’s been a lot of interest in my film simulation recipes, so I thought that … Every review I have read makes much of moving all the buttons to the right hand side to facilitate one handed shooting, but for me, the reason is much more important than that. Aperture dial on the lens: Self explanatory – changes your. Finally, there is the Control Ring, which I have assigned to control the Digital Tele-Converter when I am in auto-focus mode. I think we’ll be best of friends!! : Automatically crops your photos, either for a 41mm or 58mm equivalent view. Thanks for sharing the information, just want to ask what kind of metering did you use? This process takes a little while to complete, usually in the 1/10th to 1/15th range, which means any movement in your frame during the capture can cause distortions to appear in your image and any lights that cycle can cause banding to appear. Flash Function Setting: Main flash control. I read this excellent review. So, six years on from the X100, does the Fujifilm X100F still have that special something to get photographers excited? Note that the focusing ring also can be programmed to change things like white balance or film simulation, but I leave those options off because none of them are very useful for taking RAW photos. The camera will hold f/8 and ISO 200, and will simply increase the SS to whatever it needs for the brighter exposure (maybe it is 1/500th, or 1/1000th, or 1/2000th, etc). If it’s disconcerting to hear no noise at all while taking pictures with the electronic shutter, such as when looking through the optical viewfinder, turn the volume to low. There are a lot of options here, and it’s all personal preference, but I recommend turning off anything that is unnecessary for your work simply to eliminate distractions. There are so many ways to customize a camera like the Fuji X100F. Forgot to ask, do you use AWB? Connection Setting: Set your preferences for connecting the X100F to other devices, including a phone. ND Filter: Enables the built-in ND filter on the X100F. I think this is a good time to give a little back, so here is a tip from me . AF-C Priority Selection: Release, same reason. If that wasn’t there I am sure there would have been damage. Thanks for the tip! Travel is about portability and the X100F form factor ticks all the boxes, with its size and weight making it a perfect companion in every setting. Minimum Shutter Speed of 1/125th, Maximum ISO of 3200. This is a quick and easy way of contextualizing Auto ISO to the scene I am in. To track subjects across a smaller portion of the frame, but not just a single point, use Zone and change its size to suit your needs by pressing in the joystick and then turning the rear dial to change the size of your focusing zone. Auto Power Off: 2 Min (personal preference), Performance: Standard in most cases, Economy when I’m worried about battery life, Frame Number: Continuous. “Default Sensitivity” is the ISO that the X100F will attempt to use. At this point the camera will start dropping my SS below 1/250th to try to maintain a proper exposure.

One simple questions: 1. So, feel free to take these as a starting point, but don’t be afraid to pick different settings for yourself as needed. I look forward to trying these settings, initially when I receive my X100F (F- “Finally” for me!) I only use the electronic shutter in select circumstances. Interlock Spot AE & Focus Area: On, since it means that your metering system (when using spot metering) bases its reading upon the focus point, not a small point in the center of your frame. The easiest way is to place your camera in Manual Focus mode using the switch on the side of the body, and then use the AF-L button (or, whatever button you have AF-L assigned to) to lock focus for you. If you shoot RAW you can also apply the film simulations in Lightroom after the fact… so no need for any other templates. Conversion Lens: This setting is only for cases when you are using the TCL-X100 teleconverter or WCL-X100 wide-angle converter with the X100F. Why do you need 3 Auto ISO settings that have the same 200-3200 ISO range? Very good information and very easy to follow. Very useful information and matches about 90% of my settings. For me the complexity of the menu system is the only major drawback of an otherwise wonderful camera. The X100F incorporates the heritage of the X100 series and the best of the latest Fujifilm cameras. There is a slightly faster way to choose between film simulations. You have the entire exposure triangle, plus Exposure Compensation, completely at your fingertips with tactile knobs. I will not use this feature if I can shoot without it (as I do notice a very small amount of image degradation), but it is a nice option to have in a pinch. Thanks for writing. I will check all my settings and have a play and get back to you. I normally shoot in full manual mode and in the shop found the shutter dial quite stiff to turn if using this. I used the front command dial (on the front of the camera below the shutter button) on older cameras like the X-T2, X-E3, and X100F. Use ‘custom settings’. This is my least used function when shooting on the street, but it keeps it easily accessible at the same time. Of course. Would this not see a safer route (with the exception of course that you can “see” the final image already….I’m not quite there yet!). Large Indicators Mode (EVF/OVF): Increase the size of information displayed in the viewfinder (both OVF and EVF). For 100% silent operation, turn this off and enable electronic shutter only (from “Shutter Type” under the Shooting Setting menu). Depending on the amount of light the camera will select a higher ISO setting, but I will get an in focus image. It sure is!! Its selling points are its traditional exposure controls, including a lens aperture ring with f-stop settings and a shutter speed dial on the top of the camera.

It’s great. I’m waiting for the 55-200 to complete the kit. In continuous servo autofocus mode, it doesn’t do anything. Edit File Name: You can give your photos custom file names to start the image, such as X1F_0001 or FUJ_0001. AF+MF: On, allows you to manually focus even when in autofocus mode by turning the focusing ring on the lens (only after autofocusing already).

It reaffirms for me that the camera will fit right in to my way of shooting, especially we seem to follow pretty similar methodology. Let’s say I have my camera set to f/8 in Aperture Priority Mode and Auto ISO set to a minimum of 1/250th SS with the ISO allowed to range from 200 – 3200. S: Single servo autofocus, where the X100F focuses once and locks down after it has acquired focus. Custom Setting: Choose the information displayed in the optical viewfinder and the EVF/rear LCD. The full review is going to give you specificities, but I feel so strongly about this camera that I had to preface with this summary in plain text for those who might just scroll through. You say your approach is to shoot in aperture priority and use the 3 auto iso settings at 1/60, 1/125 and 1/250-500 and switch to whichever one is appropriate. Any advice or have I just accidentally changed some setting. I prefer “Eye Sensor,” which leaves the rear LCD enabled and only turns on the viewfinder when it senses your eye. Hopefully you have found all the recommended settings above to be useful for setting up your own Fuji X100F! Thank you so much! Also when the camera is on but not in the process of taking a pic you can hear and feel movement inside the camera. That’s great.

Corrected AF Frame: If you are in one of the modes with the electronic viewfinder, you can flip the red tab on the front of the X100F to switch between EVF (electronic viewfinder) and OVF (optical viewfinder) with a display overlay. I also love to visualize my images before and while I am taking them, so I switch back and forth a lot between Acros and Classic Chrome while I am shooting. (Note that due to an odd design flaw on the X100F and other Fuji cameras, you need to be shooting RAW + JPEG rather than just RAW if you want to magnify your photos in playback mode to any significant degree.). Now, onto the settings: A mistake? Can’t make a face to face workship? I also work with the X-Pro2, which has a similar menu to the X100F. Regarding the highlight tone,shadow and sharpness and noise reduction settings are these something to experiment with when using Acros R. I think each of us should experiment with things like highlight, shadow, etc. Features.

Hi Ian I have my camera set to turn off after 2 minutes of non-use. The X100F features the latest APSC CMOS X-Trans III 24mp sensor the same as in the XT2/XP2 and delivers excellent image quality. I am left eyed and the X100f is probably the most comfortable camera I have ever used as the viewfinder is on the extreme left of the camera which gives much more room for me to access the buttons. Thank for providing a starting point for the many and varied settings. When it is bright out I will stay with the highest setting, giving me my best shutter speed.
