    Greybeard got a reaction from Astigmatism in "PREVIEW DEPTH OF FIELD" function - what's the point? It's ALWAYS previewing.   
    In aperture priority - set the lens wide open - choose a scene with objects at different distances - now press the button you have assigned to "PREVIEW DEPTH OF FIELD" and the effect should be obvious. 
    (I checked it with X-S10 but X-T4 should be much the same - its not something I ever use as half press will do the same and also focus on the subject)

    Greybeard got a reaction from KOLED in Scathing Review of Fuji X-H2s   
    The problem I have with the review is that it doesn't address what I think is the main advantage of the camera for stills photographers i.e. speed and improved autofocus. He says that face/eye detection has not improved over the X-T4 but does not address subject tracking (beyond the comment that animals should not have been divided into birds and others which I agree with).
    If you don't test the camera for its abilities to shoot wildlife and sports its difficult to come up with any conclusions about its value.
    Much of the review was centered around what I think are relatively trivial criticisms - like the lack of focus mode switch, dial click switches and the lack of a battery charger.
    I also think the review could have been 20 minutes shorter - and still have made the main points.

    Yes - I didn't mention build quality - I don't have an X-H1 to compare but I certainly have no complaints about the X-H2S. Its rock solid and all buttons and dials work exactly as they should - no unnecessary play. It gives every impression it will continue working for years. I haven't yet had need to test the weather sealing but everything fits well together - and in fact the removal of the AF mode switch and dial press switches are only going to improve the overall weather resistance.
    As for murkiness - I just haven't seen it - perhaps someone will post some examples so I know what to look out for (and situations where the murkiness will appear)

    Understood. There are so many facets to a new camera that it is bound to create much different opinions, especially when it comes to what was added and deleted over prior models.
    Glad your enjoying your H2s, that is really what it is all about, enjoying our hobby no matter
    what our taste differences.,  Thanks again and regards, GO

    Greybeard got a reaction from jerryy in Comparing X-T4 to X-T30 ii?   
    There are a lot of little differences between X-T4 and X-T30 II that may or may not be important to you - better EVF - weather sealing - two card slots (and UHS-II for faster write speed) - larger buffer - better video specs - better battery - faster continuous bursts with mechanical shutter - available battery grip.
    What is important to you?
    The X-T5 is unlikely to bring much improvement in IQ but it will have the latest processor and sensor so probably all round faster.

    No - the closest you could do would be to set up two banks of custom settings and switch between them

    Greybeard got a reaction from jerryy in Auto focus only --Aperture and SS manual   
    Focus and exposure are separate.
    Set automatic focus using the switch on the front of the camera (C or S):

    Greybeard got a reaction from Astigmatism in How do IBIS and OIS interact? (Camera body stabilization + lens with optical stabilization)   
    Thats an interesting question. IBIS gives you stabilization in more axes than OIS. I can't find anything from FujiFilm that discusses the way they work together on the X-T4. You don't have a choice when you turn on IBIS in the body or OIS on the lens (if applicable) you get both.
    The only thing from FujiFilm I could find that discusses IBIS and OIS actually working together is from this firmware update for the X-H1:

    I doubt it - it probably needs the faster processor - more likely to wait and implement in the X-T5

    Greybeard got a reaction from Carbonado in Not able to choose between these two!   
    Can you find somewhere to try holding the cameras? They are quite different in size and layout and that might help you make up your mind. The X-E4 with the 27mm lens is very small and easier to carry around.

    Well - yes - there is a lock function that would do this - but it would have been difficult to do it by mistake:

    Greybeard got a reaction from Sany in Photo preview after photo is taken? only via the playback button?   
    OK there are two things here:
    - you are seeing the File Storing message because you have Clarity set to non-zero - if you don't like the message change the clarity setting
    - if you want to always see a preview of each image after its has been taken there is a menu setting:
    Set-Up -> Screen Set-Up ->  Image Disp.
    You can set it to display the image for 0.5 sec, 1.5 sec or continuous until you dismiss the display

    Greybeard got a reaction from Sany in Film Simulation Setting: Custom FS setting vs Overall Custom Setting   
    Customization on the X-S10 is completely different from other Fujifilm X Series cameras.
    It's best to ignore tutorials written for those other cameras.
    The X-S10 doesn't have specific film simulation custom settings in the same way as the other cameras.
    But the good news is that the four custom settings on the top dial of the camera are both easier to access and give much greater flexibility. They include the ability to store not only the image quality settings (normally considered as film simulation) but also many other settings.
    You lose three custom slots but gain much more customization and ease of access with the top dial.

    Greybeard got a reaction from jerryy in I can´t open RAF files   
    You are shooting compressed raw - Apple doesn't support compressed raw.
    You will either have to switch to uncompressed or put up with the grey squares.
    There are, however, plenty of programs (such as Lightroom) that will be able to open those compressed raw files on the Mac its just anything native Apple (such as finder and preview that won't recognize them).
    FastRawViewer on the Mac is a good choice if you want to quickly view your raw files (and it supports both compressed and uncompressed raw).

    Greybeard got a reaction from siock51 in another q menu problem   
    Have the camera ready in shooting mode (musn't be set to video as that is a separate Q menu).
    Long press the Q menu button until the menu comes up in edit mode.
    Use the joystick to position the cursor over each item you want to change and press the joystick (you will see the menu of Q menu items and be able to scroll and change to the one you want)
    When you have the Q menu looking the way you want use the Disp Back button to return to shooting mode.
    The Q menu should now be changed.

    The NP-W126S batteries replaced the original NP-W126 about 5 years - supposedly they manage heat better - especially useful for 4K video.
    I use an external charger but it's probably more habit than anything else. After taking photos I remove the card and the battery. Stick the battery in a charger and the card in a card reader.

    Greybeard got a reaction from JanJ in Changed shutter speed selection with 2.10 firmware in A mode and manual lens   
    Yes - you right - it happens with firmware v2.0 as well.
    I just compared X-T3 and X-S10 with a Fujifilm 50mm lens.
    The X-T3 prefers a minimum of 1/75 (as expected) whereas the X-S10 prefers 1/150.
