  1. Hi, I have difficulty in viewing scenes with my XT-3 through both the LCD and EVF when the sun is very bright sun - the scene appears dark. The relevant parameters that I am using are as follows: EVF brightness: -1, LCD brightness: +3, Natural live view: off (I want a natural view of how the scene looks). In searching for information regarding this matter, I see that some people recommended not using the auto feature, and used negative values for EVF brightness and positive values for LCD brightness; however, this does not seem to help much in very sunny situations. When the scene is not particularly sunny, I see through both the EVF and LCD fine. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
  2. I suggest that you go to IQ and change the setting of each item individually, for example, white balance, color, and sharpness. This will then save these items on your Q menu.
  3. I was finally able to arrange it properly. Thanks again for your help. Regards, Steve
  4. I changed the sharpness value in my q menu but after fiddling with it, as you can see, it now appears 3 times, and 2 previous items are missing. As previously suggested, I went to: Menu => Wrench, Set Up => Button/Dial Setting => Edit/Save Quick Menu. However, this did not help. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  5. Hi, Regarding my shutter sound setup, I have: AF beep vol.: off, self-time beep: off, operation vol.: off, shutter vol. off , shutter sound: #1. However, the shutter volume only turns off when I use the electronic shutter, not with any of the other shutter types. I tried to lower the shutter volume, but it seems to be the same. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
  6. Thanks very much! It worked. I really appreciate it. Regards, Steve
  7. Hi, I have a problem with my q menu. I have attached a picture. As I shift through the different possibilities, the highlighted item appears in words - in this case, noise reduction. However, I cannot revert to the normal situation where the menu displays C1. I have gone out the q menu many times and turned off and on the camera but nothing helps. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Steve
  8. David, Thanks for trying to help me. I am shooting in jpeg and was trying to achieve more accurate WB values (at least by 1000K rather than by 3000K). Regards, Steve
  9. Yes, I know, thanks. The problem is that the K values are in ranges of 3000K, for example, 5000, 5300, and 5600K. I wanted to set an intermediate value, for example, 5500K. I think that this could be corrected in a future firmware update and I will write Fuji about it. Thanks again for trying to help me. Regards, Steve
  10. Hi, I would like to know whether it is possible to set specific kelvin temperatures for white balance, for example, 5000K. I see that according to the menu, there are ranges with differences of 3000K, for example, 5300, 5600, and 5900. Thanks, Steve
  11. I found the solution: set ISO on A, ISO dial setting (A): command (not auto)
  12. Hi, I tried to adjust the command rear dial for ISO, but was not successful. I went through the correct procedure: Wrench, Button dial settings: command dial settings: back dial setting: ISO. I was able to change it for exposure compensation but not not for ISO. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Steve
  13. Hi, I am considering buying the Fuji 50mm f2, which generally has had excellent reviews: very sharp, good microcontrast, close focusing ability, fast autofocus, light weight, relatively inexpensive, etc. However, some users have reported that the autofocus was very slow close to the minimum focusing distance. Have others also experienced this problem? I have read about a similar problem (focus hunting) on the Fuji x-forum, which was attributed to Fuji's 3.0 firmware update, in which the problem was resolved when camera was returned and the 2.1 firmware was installed. Regarding the focus hunting problem, it was mentioned that Fuji knows about this problem, which will be resolved in a future firmware update. Should I wait until this problem is resolved or do most people think that this is a permanent problem. Thanks
  14. Hi, I purchased an XT-3 about 6 weeks ago and am generally very happy with it. However, in examining the screen settings menu, I found that the "preview pic. effect" option does not appear for some reason. Does anyone know why this occurs and how to rectify the problem? Thanks, Steve
