New Firmware Update

Today, 09:20 AM

I appreciate the improved AF performance that came to my new X-E2 with the latest firmware updates. Further improvements in that area would be welcome, but it's not clear how much further AF performance can be achieved through firmware updates. For now, I'm satisfied on that score.

 

Here are two ideas for future firmware updates that I would welcome:

 

===

 

I'd like to be able to use the white balance chromatic grid to adjust the chromatic value of the color used by the focus peaking highlight. Setting a neon green or safety cone orange would be handy at times.

 

===

 

Better still, I'd like to be able to customize the Q menu.

 

If I were Mr. Fuji, I'd direct my software engineers to leave the existing Q menu as is, and create a second, Q-2 Menu. This could be easily done by making a copy of the existing Q menu subroutine, then modifying the code in the copy.

 

The existing Q Menu is a simple subroutine that presents the User with a group of shortcuts. Each of these shortcuts is a "pointer" aimed at a fixed memory address that contains the existing value stored for the associated Shooting Menu option.

 

The basic modification of this algorithm would entail allowing the User to select any Shooting Menu option and place it on the Q-2 Menu Grid, thus creating a new shortcut. Where the original Q Menu is mapped directly to a fixed memory address, the Q-2 Menu cell would have to assign itself a memory address based on the Menu Option that has been selected for it. This isn't hard to do.

 

When the Q Menu is opened, the rear dial becomes an active control that changes the value stored in the memory cell associated with the highlighted Q Menu grid cell.

 

>Use the Selector to move the cursor to the desired cell;

 

>Turn the Rear Dial to change the memory value controlling that Shooting Menu Option, without opening the Shooting Menu and scrolling through the various settings and options.

 

>Exit the Q Menu to save any changes that have been made and return to normal camera operation.

 

===

 

Functionally, the Q-2 Menu would operate the same way. The difference would be allowing the User's to select and assign the desired Shooting Menu option to any of the Grid cells.

 

> Create the new Q-2 function.

 

Use a double-press of the Q button, or a double-press or the F2 button, or a press of the F2 button followed immediately by pressing the Q button, to activate the new function and open the Q-2 screen. If no options have been selected, the Grid will be completely blank.

 

As with the original Q Menu, move the cursor to the desired Grid cell using the Selector.

 

When a Shooting Menu option has been assigned, the corresponding icon will be present. Turn the dial to change the value stored in memory for that Option to change how the Option functions.

 

If the Grid cell is empty, or if you want to change an Option that has been previously assigned to that cell, press the Menu button. This will open the regular Menu screen.

 

Any attempt to change an Option setting in this mode will not work. Instead, such attempts will open an error message that reminds the User to press the proper control button to select the desired Option to be used in the Q-2 Menu.

 

While the Shooting Menu is visible, scroll through the options until you get to the one you want. Press the Q or F2 or Menu button (whichever one has been assigned to select and assign the Option to the Q-2 Menu cell). By doing so, the Option is assigned, and the screen reverts to the Q-2 Menu screen.

 

At this point the User can change the value of the newly selected Option, select a different Option to assign to that Grid cell, delete the current assignment, move to a different Grid cell, or exit the Q-2 Menu.

 

===

 

This firmware change would greatly enhance the functionality of the camera by allowing the User to customize the interface to suit their individual shooting style(s).

Manual focusing - unusual lens motor behaviour

Today, 09:05 AM

Posted by SparkyF986 in X-T1 Discussion

I have had some trouble when manually focusing.  In this mode when I turn the focusing ring to activate the lens stepper-motor, the focus position would sometimes jump quite large amounts, and sometimes it would move very small amounts - which is what you would expect.  This inconsistent behaviour would occur seemingly at random and with all my XF prime lenses, including the 60mm f/1.4, 35mm F/1.4 and the 23mm F1.4 so it seems to be a feature of the camera body, rather than a particular lens.

 

I have now discovered the reason:  when the focusing ring is reversed in turn direction, the first 'click' of the ring produces a large jump in position, subsequent 'clicks' result in only small movements.  I would like to know: has anyone else discovered this behaviour or is it peculiar to my copy of the X-T1, in which case I need to have it serviced?

 

My current 'work around' is to turn the ring only in one direction and not to use the usual method for mechanically-coupled lenses (XF lenses being drive-by-wire, not mechanically coupled) of 'forward a bit, backward a bit' until best focus is found.

 

I would be glad of any feedback or information about other people's findings with manual focusing.

After the passage Canon-Fuji, here is the field test of the X-T1 (with XF 55-200) test autofocus and burst.

29 shots in less than 4 seconds ... 20 to fire, 7 a little soft, 2 out of focus. (file JPG Fine)

For me, test passed!

X-A1 and XF 35mm

Today, 12:18 AM

Posted by Brendon in X-M1 and X-A1 Discussion

I decided to get a quality 50mm equivalent lens and I was in doubt between the TCL for my X100S and the XF 35mm.

 

I don't regret the choice at all, and I guess that the X-A1 gives a very nice result, its files look similar to the one from the old X100 to me (and compared to my two XC zooms it really brings this camera to a different level).

 

I'm going to post a couple of test images I did to a teddy bear at various f-stops, here you can find a zip containing the same files and the RAW if someone wanna give a try to the non X-Trans RAFs.

 

All these shots are SOOC Astia with COL +1, HL/SH -1, NR -2, SH 0 (open them in Flickr for pixel peeping, they've been uploaded full res)

 

14553082487_8d193ffaec_c.jpg
 

 

 

This is one "real world" snap, SOOC jpeg slightly processed in LR to give it a bit more pop. I tried to process the RAF on LR starting from the Astia camera profile but I couldn't achieve something like the SOOC, with the 35mm I'm starting to really like jpegs ;)

Questions for XT-1 wedding photographers

Yesterday, 09:20 PM

Posted by Jay Farrell Photography in X-T1 Discussion

I've had mine for 2 months and used it on many shoots, and finally at a wedding, with overall successful results. Blog link here w photos http://www.jayfarrel...hville-wedding/

 

I'm not used to shooting wedding or event work with primes, but did about 50 / 50 with them and the kit lens. Naturally the Zeiss Touits and even the 56 focused faster indoors, but still found it bizarre how it hunted more than other times without rhyme or reason...well, I am using a LED flashlight next time to aid. For those reasons and overall fondness of the prime lenses, I am thinking if I go all in with the Fuji, I need a second Fuji body and keep the 56 on one, and the Zeiss 32 or 12 on the other.

 

-Any tips for getting used to event work with primes? How to make it less awkward...

-How do you carry multiple bodies and lenses? Holster belt? How awkward is it? I'm not used to doing that either.

 

I know it;s a lot to get used to, I know it's less convenient in some ways than the Canon SLR system I'm used to....but I feel there's a reason for it and the rewards conpensate for the quirks, that most I've figured out how to work with.

Weird Shortcut Button

Yesterday, 08:36 PM

Posted by ngu1k in X-E1 and X-E2 Discussion

Hi, I'm new with fuji x-e2, just spent 2 weeks with it.

I notice there is some "weird" shortcut button that I notice. I wonder if you guys could help me.

We only can manually change 4 button only (Fn, Fn2, AE & AF) to select the ISO, White Balance, etc.

But I notice there is 3 same function button on the camera that we cannot change it.  :phew:

The left-right selector, when on shoot mode, this button can change shutter speed. While there is shutter speed dial on top of the camera.

And the selector dial (Q button's right) has the same function. Of course when we connect the xc lens this button will act as aperture setting.

I wonder if fuji can let us change more custom on the button. So that I can set more and quick setting on the camera...

This is just my opinion.. 

Please correct me if I'm wrong about the button...

Thanks :D
