    XT4 Firmware

    Look trough Pal2tech videos on Youtube, on X-T4 and some other videos he has also. He mention some buggs in X-T4 that should be corrected. I think they should offer an OLED display instead of the outdated LCD (stone age...), regarding hardware side. As enhancements via firmware other then fixing the kown bugs I can not think of anything right now but maybe some feature could be moved over from Fujifilm high end cameras to X-T4 also (it is on the edge to a high end camera, for me at least, I have X-T4). I guess IBIS can be improved even more, can not hurt. But IBIS is probably very good alrea
  3. Update 2: So far (I'm writing this Nov. 2, 2020) my new Haoge LH-X18 square metal lens hood has not deattached while out in the terrain. I doubt it will ever deattach by itself from the lens. /Bo
  4. Hi, In my X-T4 I had to do this before X Acuire "found" my camera: In camera Settings select:Set UpConnection SettingsConnection ModeChange from USB Card Reader to USB RAW CONV./Backup Restore.Then it worked fine to make a Backup of my X-T4 camera settings with X Acuire (from its icon in the taskbar in lower right corner of Windows 10 that I use). Maybe similar problem with Your X-T2 and X Acuire? /Bo
  5. Great it was solved. It seems X-T4 is little "tricky" about SD cards, I have a common problem - I almost always need to insert the SD card(s) twice before Card Read error is is gone (yes I use Fujifilm recommened SD Cards, Sony UHS-II V90). Anyway this is what is said in X-T4 user manual, Troubleshooting section about the error You had (same suggestion for all 3 errors): FOCUS ERROR, LENS CONTROL ERROR or TURN OFF THE CAMERA AND TURN ON AGAIN Explanation: Camera malfunction. Turn the camera off and then on again. If the message persists, contact a Fujifilm dealer. I would h
  6. Found the cause now. I have a new X-T4 I got as a replacement for a "lemon" earlier this summer. With the new X-T4 I got I had forgot to change in Settings what is needed for X Acuire to "see" the X-T4: In camera Settings select: Set Up Connection Settings Connection Mode Change from USB Card Reader to USB RAW CONV./Backup Restore. Then it worked fine to make a Backup of my X-T4 camera settings. Live and learn (and try to remember...). /Bo
  7. Hi, Problem: Fujifilm "X Acuire" application (for backup/restore of camera settings) do not find my X-T4 camera anymore. I made one backup in the past when my X-T4 camera was new. My X-T4 is recognised by Windows 10, I can see it listed in Explorer in Windows 10, and I can browse files on the SD card in the camera that way. But "X Acuire" application say "No" camera found. I have uninstalled X Acuire and installed it again, and restarted computer but it did not help. Any advice? Is it any other application then X Acuire I can use to backup and restore camera settings? rega
  8. Hi Emerald, I'm sure You will love the X-T4, with suitable lens(es) for the kind of photos you need/want to take. I have X-T4 also (with lens XF 16-80mm F4 R OIS WR). It really helped me to learn the camera settings properly and set things for as optimal usage for the kind of photo I take. As with all cameras also X-T4 has some cons but the pros are so many. Have fun! /Bo
  9. I can adjust Shutter speed with rear right dial. I have set it in menu settings I want to adjust shutter speed on that "wheel" (to right decrease value, to left increase value). On front wheel on right side on X-T4 I can adjust ISO (also Apperture and value on that wheel, just cklick on the wheel and then rotate to select between them and confirm with click on wheel, select desired value. I mostly use manual settings for SS (Shutter Speed), ISO and Apereture ("F"). I have the right horizintal dial for shutter speed on top of X-T4 set to "T" (the little white dot is towards T) and then has that
  10. Damn, I have two Sony Tough SF-G64T and two SF-G128T cards that all start with TV... on last row and no * sign either on the cards. I will have to contact Sony. I do not like really to send these tiny cards via mail, the cards are so damn expensive, and if they are lost in shipment it will not be cheap for me. /Bo

    IBIS vs Lens OIS

    If You have a lens with OIS that has not on/off switch on the lens - what then? Like the lens XF 16-80mm F4 R OIS WR (that I have), it has no OIS on/off switch on the side, it is set in the camera Settings menu only to turn OIS on/off for video mode, Movie Setting:, IS Mode: IBIS/OIS (I have that selected) or IBIS/OIS +DIS or Off There is also IS Mode Boost that can be set to On (or Off) (I have it set to Boost.) For Still (photo) mode it is in camera menu Shooting Setting, IS Mode: Continous (I have that selected) Shooting only Off So for Video it seems it
  12. Update: So far the new Haoge LH-X18 square metal lens hood has not deattached while out in the terrain. So it is probably safe to draw the conclusion that it will not deattach by itself like the original round lens hood for X-T4 did several times out in the terrain for me. Here are two photos with my Haoge LH-X18 square metal lens hood attached, I was too lazy to deattach the battry grip, I do not use the grip that often and never out in the terrain. /Bo
  13. So far my new Haoge LH-X18 square metal lens hood has not deattached while out in the terrain. Knock on wood... /Bo
  14. Same factory September 1 2020 in daylight. The breadfactory front facade is huge, as You can se in below photo. I have been up on the roof once when I had summer job during high school period, I think it was in 1977 I was up on the factory roof. It was magnificent view to watch my hometown here in Sweden from about 50 meter (160-170 ft) above the ground. It is a viewpoint on the roof up to the left where it is a flagpole. In the photo I took with my X-T4 camera they had just cleaned (almost finished) the facade with help of the crane You can see in the photo below. /Bo
  15. OK, I see, I'm rather new to Fujifilm so I do not know so much about this brand and their products really. But so far I like my X-T4 but I had a "lemon" to start with but got a new from the reseller. /Bo
