Firmware update for new X-A1

Yesterday, 10:42 PM

Posted by Donato777 in X-M1 and X-A1 Discussion

I just received a new X-A1 from Japan. Is the latest firmware the same for U.S. and international models of the X-A1?  Do I need to download and install the latest firmware from the Fuji site, or will the firmware be up to date?  And how can I tell?  (I haven't even unboxed it yet.)  Thanks.

How strong is the lens mount on the X-E1?

Yesterday, 09:54 PM

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

I have some Tamron legacy lenses that I want to use, but the 70-210 zoom is all metal and pretty heavy, so I'm concerned that I might damage the camera's lens mount if I use this lens unsupported with the camera on a tripod.

 

I'd really appreciate some input on this

Histogram in OVF

Yesterday, 08:57 PM

Posted by MikeGuilbault in X100, X100S and X100T Discussion

I get the little grey rectangle where the histogram should be in the OVF of my X100T, but nothing shows up - no histogram? Do I have something turned on or off somewhere that would cancel this?  Can't seem to find it in the menus.

 

And... when I'm in Manual mode, the light-meter isn't working either unless I'm 1/2 pressing the shutter. Makes it hard to make an adjustment when you can't see the indicator.

I like the new AF+MF mode on my XE1

Yesterday, 08:52 PM

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

The reason I like the new AF+MF mode is because that mode allows me to manually adjust the focus just like the M-mode does but now the shutter lag is just 70 ms instead of some number between 120 and 500 ms in M-mode.  It would have been better still if I could also zoom the display as it can be done with the X-E2 and the X-T1, but I don't know yet if the lag is the same when the display is magnified.  I hope some X-E2 user will find a few minutes to check that.

New Lock function - overview & how do you use it?

Yesterday, 08:30 PM

Posted by Arjay in X-T1 Discussion

Please share how you're using the Lock function, why you set it up the way you do, and what benefits this setup offers for you.

 

Overview:

 

One of the new functions introduced with the V. 3.0 firmware is the Lock function (Setup Menu p. 3 / Lock). The function opens a menu with two layers.

 

1st layer:

  • Lock Setting - enable/disable locking / global or selective lock
  • Function Selection - choose function to lock

2nd layer of Lock Setting

  • Unlock

  • All Functions - globally lock all functions

  • Selected function - individually select functions to be locked

2nd layer of Function Selection (items w/ on/off checkmark)

  • Focus mode Selector

  • Aperture

  • Shutter speed

  • ISO dial

  • Exp. compensation dial

  • Drive dial

  • Metering dial

  • OIS switch

  • Program shift

  • Q button

  • View mode button

  • Disp

  • AE-L button

  • AF-L button

  • Focus assist button (option name has a typo)

  • Movie record button

  • Fn1 ... Fn6 buttons

  • AF mode

  • Face detection

  • White balance

  • Film simulation

  • Other shooting menu

  • Format

  • Erase

  • Date/time difference

  • Reset

  • Silent mode

  • Sound set-up

  • screen set-up

  • Color space

  • Other setup menu

It's interesting that the choice of functions to be locked doesn't only cover physical dials, levers and buttons, but also functions inside of the shooting, setup and Q menus. This lets you lock specific functions which a) you may want to fix and protect against unauthorized access, or b ) protect against inadvertent actuation or change.

 

So, the lock function can be used for many different functions.

 

Please share how you're using this function, why you set it up the way you do, and what benefits this setup offers for you.

 

Here's my first entry:

 

I'm locking the Aperture function; this deactivates the aperture ring on my lenses after I initially set up the desired f-stop. My benefit is that this helps me to avoid inadvertently changing the aperture if I use aperture priority AE (this often happens the way I use the camera, and I find that rather annoying).

X-T1: Heavy Weather

Weatherproofing -- even without an "official" WR lens -- is proving to be my favorite X-T1 feature. The Pacific Ocean's been dumping itself onto the city here and the shooting's great evey day. Of course that was true before, but -- yeah

Off camera flash = mechanical shutter (Firmware v3)

Yesterday, 05:12 PM

Posted by montymo in Fuji X Flash Photography

Hi, I just upgraded.  Of course one of the first things I tried was the electronic shutter (cool).  Tonight I have to shoot the company Holliday Party.  I thought I would double check my flash.  I have a Yongnuo YN560-III and a Yongnuo RF-603CII wireless trigger.

Crap, nothing worked.  I checked batteries, dip switches,  macro mode off, silent shutter off.... I had just about given up when I thought I would try switching the shutter back to mechanical. Bingo. All systems go :)

 

I'm happy once again!

Yesterday, 03:26 PM

Posted by Richard_M in Fuji X Photos

After upgrading the firmware I felt the need to get a few shots to ensure things were still working :)

 

So I went for a wander around the Sculpture Park with the X-T1 and 10-24mm lens

a buggy X-T1 firmware upgrade 3.0 ?

Yesterday, 02:56 PM

Posted by MichelBR in X-T1 Discussion

Hi there !

 

I updated my X-T1 without any problems yesterday but there is something it is not working after the update.

 

Before the update I set the front dial to change the exposure time, as many of you.

But after the update the front dial is not working any more.

If I change it to the back dial the back dial change the exposure time as usual. (Setup menu #2; Button/Dial setting;  Command dial setting/ ^ F v S.S.) [the ^and v represents the semi-circle icon] 

On the "^ S.S. v F" position, the front dial does not work, but it used to work before the update, it was my preferred way.

When the front dial is set to change the exposure time the top semi-circle icon show up as expected, but there is no change in rotating the dial.

 

There is a typo in the English language, in the lock functions to choose, there is one named "AOCUS something", but I  guess every one has it, it is not a signal of a corrupted firmware, isn't ? After all, everything else is working just fine.

 

I already tried to do a Factory reset and Shoot menu reset (or whatever is the name) using the menus, but theses are not a real reset, because the wireless name of camera still there after both resets.

 

Anyone knows how to perform a real hard reset in this camera. Usually it is a combination of pressing one or more keys during the power on, similar to the procedure to install the firmware.

 

Man, it is so annoying to have to use a uncomfortable setting like this...

 

I appreciate any comments,

 

best regards.
