    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 is is both IBIS and OIS in ise but for Still (photo) it is IS Mode Continous I use - is it both IBIS and OIS then? Thanks for clarification. Bo
  2. 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
  3. So far my new Haoge LH-X18 square metal lens hood has not deattached while out in the terrain. Knock on wood... /Bo
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. No, I have not. I just use this forum for Fujifilm info, it is enough for me, for info about my X-T4 camera and the lens I use. I will check out the link You provided, mdm. This new lens is said to be good to use working in low light conditions. Maybe something for me since I'm often out in afternoon and evenings with my X-T4 when light conditions are not so good. I will read more about this lens to find out if it could be for me or not. My present (only) lens XF 16-80mm F4 R OIS WR is OK but in lower light conditions it is not so good I have noticed. With flash it is great but one can not always use that. The XF 50mm F1.0 R WR has a weight of 845 gram, my XF 16-80mm F4 R OIS WR weight 440 gram. No OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) in the lens on XF 50mm F1.0 R WR, but the X-T4 camera I have has OIS. So maybe that is enough and not so big disadvantage then to use a non OIS lens? /Bo
  7. I had a single Sony Tough SF-G64T SD card initially alone in slot 1 and formatted it in camera in slot 1. Later I bought two Sony SF-G128T that I had in backup so one was in slot 1 and one in slot 2. Both cards was formatted in the camera. It seems not to matter if I use one or two cards in the slots. It is not a big problem but it should not be like this with high quality SD card like the Sony Tough cards. Once the card is recogniced, always on second insert of the SD card in a X-T4 slot, it works then perfectly. I think I can live with it. The cards has not been used that much, I have filled up the 64 GB card but the 128GB cards has still pleny of free space left. I have a HP Zbook laptop with Win 10 so no MacBook in use here. I have the latest firmware for both X-T4 camera (ver. 1.03) and lens XF16-80mm F4 R OIS WR (ver. 1.05). Thanks for the answer, Herco.
  8. Hi, New lens XF 50mm F1.0 R WR, "launch" late September 2020. When it is possible to buy I have not a clue. It has a rather hefty recommended price tag (that I have read info about from a Photo Magazine in my country). - Large diameter mid telephoto prime lens. - World's first Autofocus capable F1.0 interchangeable lens for mirrorless digital cameras. Etc. Source and more info: https://www.fujifilm.com/news/n200903_01.html /Bo
  9. Hi all, I have noticed as soon as I take any of my SD cards out (for file transfer to my laptop in the laptop SD card slot) and then later insert the SD card in the X-T4 SD card slot it is almost always this message in X-T4 when I turn it on: CARD ERROR I take the SD card out of the slot in my X-T4 and insert it again and the error is gone next time I turn the camera on. Little annoying, not a big problem since I know the workaround now. Just curious, any others out there that has same problem? The SD cards I use is on the Fujifilm recommended list of SD cards. No other problems with my three SD cards I have. It is Sony Tough SF-G64T and SF-G128T (both V90) that I use. /Bo
  10. That is correct, I have that lens. Screenshot for Photo (Still) mode below. I have not seen any settings that can enable camera OIS or lens OIS, it will be on (or off) in both if both camera and lens (as in this case) support OIS. If the lens do not support IOS the X-T4 camera OIS can be enabled by the Camera Shooting IS Mode setting. But watch this video so You know the limitations: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8f9KSfm71JI /Bo
  11. Hi, I have got the Haoge LH-X18 square metal lens hood now. It seems OK but the plastic cover is little "sharp" in the edges so I will need to smooth it little with fine wet sandpaper. Since it is square it will probably be easier to get stuck in various tree branches and such out in the woods compared to a round lens hood. I think a round metal lens hood had been better. It is hard to imagine the Haoge LH-X18 square metal lens hood will come loose by itself, but usage will tell. I have not been out in the woods yet (I got the Haoge LH-X18 yesterday). I will report back later when I have used it more outdoors. /Bo
  12. Thanks for the hint. I will keep this in mind if I need to use it. /Bo
  13. I have ordered a Haoge LH-X18 square metal lens hood now from amazon in UK. It was a review on this lens hood saying it had fallen off for one user so maybe it is similar problem with this one. I take a chance. Maybe it will be OK and stay on the lens tip on my XF 16-80mm F4 R OIS WR lens. /Bo
