Exposure Compensation Dial position alert.

 

When they designed the X-T2, Fuji wisely added 'lock' buttons to both the ISO and Shutter Speed dials, so that these couldn't be moved inadvertently.

 

So why the hell didn't they do the same with the Exposure Compensation Dial? It needs this more than the others, being positioned at the extreme right end of the top of the camera, where it's easiest to be moved by mistake; I've done it just taking the camera out of my backpack - and more than once, I might add.

 

Plus which, the X-10 I owned previously had the exact same issue. I sometimes wonder if the nerds who design these things ever actually use them in the real world, quite honestly.

 

Obviously, they can't retroactively add a physical feature such as a lock button at this point (though it should be done to the next generation). But they could surely include a firmware update that would make that exposure compensation information on the left side of the viewfinder blink repeatedly, or turn orange, or something, if the dial has been moved away from the 0 position.

I would like to have the AF point auto rotate as you rotate the camera between landscape and portrait.
Also able to add "Switch Slot Sequential" in my menu or in Q menu.
Make Q button as a customizable Fn button so that can be as AF-On.

You can crop, but you have to develop the RAW to a JPEG and then crop the JPEG (menu button, not Q button). Still, I agree.

Oh, I don't think it has been mentioned yet. Please Fuji, please fix the sd card related EVF switching delay and the read/write errors with various brands of cards. I have spent ~$150 on SD cards for the X-T2 trying to find something that works!

I just don't understand! If one is actually truly interested in video, buy a dedicated video camera! Let manufacturers build the best still camera they can. It's like buying a car and expecting it to seat 12, buy the bus.

Camera rotation specific focus points that remember your last point in that orientation

 

Raw highlight warning blinkies in live view (would settle for playback)

 

Customizable Q button (I don't use the quick menu, and it's a perfect spot for AF-On)

 

Something that speeds up lightroom performance with RAF files (I realize this is an Adobe issue, not a firmware issue, but hey, it's a wish list)

 

Faster AF (Even on the X-T2, the AF never really feels "snappy" like it used to on my Canon. The Canon missed more often, but it was always so confident about it. The X-T2 is more accurate, but much more plodding that makes me feel less confident in it)

 

Fix random under-exposure issues when there are white things in the scene. I've found that if I have something white in my shot (like a white shirt on a model) I'll sometimes get as much as 2 stops under-exposed when using a priority mode. I think it's trying to preserve highlights?

*RAW histogram

*Rear Command Wheel-Customize-Push to Initiate AF (Back button AF too small a button)

*ISO-Shutter Speed Lens Dependent

*Blinkies Full Frame in Review (Or live view if possible)

*Highlight overexposure prevention option.

*All buttons more customizable

*More items in "Q" menu

  • I would like to see all the GFX aspect ratios on the X-T2: 4:3, 5:4, 7:6, 1:1, 3:2, 16:9, 65:24
  • Also would like to have more control of the JPG compression
  • Turn off noise reduction completely 
  • If possible make AF tracking even faster
  • Customize EVF view mode button so I don't have to go trough all the options
  • New Film simulations

If I lock the shutter speed dial or the ISO dial, I shouldn't be able to change it using the wheels.

I would also love a 5x4 crop with the next firmware update. At present I use the 6 x 4 grid overlay in the viewfinder. This makes it easy to compose in a 5 x 4 ratio. In the menu go to set up, screen set up, framing guidelines. Not as good as the 5 x 4 crop I had in my Nikon but manageable.

1)

 

When converting an image from RAF to JPEG in camera:

 

Place the converted jpeg in the sequence/order shot, not last in line.

 

That makes it possible to directly compare the unconverted (pre-conversion) jpeg to the in camera converted jpeg.

 

2)

 

When shooting in "EVF Only" the playback of image should be on the LCD, not playback on the EVF (who reviews images in the EVF, regardless of shooting mode?!)

I agree why not just get video camera?

Opps...Re: When shooting in "EVF Only" the playback of image should be on the LCD, not playback on the EVF (who reviews images in the EVF, regardless of shooting mode?!)...that should have referenced the pressing of "Menu"....which should bring up "Menu" on the LCD....image playback from EVF only does in fact play on the LCD.
