    You probably need to switch off Preview Exposure in the Setup/screen setup menu.

    Definitely try some pics in good light of a static subject on a tripod. If those don't come out tack-sharp, a visit to the shop is definitely in order, Good luck, I hope there's nothing wrong with your camera. I've had a different mirrorless system (Sony) for 6 years and there is still plenty of stuff I'm learning about this thing!

    if all this settings , tips etc.. fail . then definitely contact fujifilm service ! because then it might be a manufacturing defect ,which will be replaced by the seller . your camera and lens is capable of capturing way too faster moving subjects than dogs .so wish you good luck !

    CatsAreGods got a reaction from mokba in 70-300 lens arrived a week early!   
    I've been shooting the moon with both the 70-300 and a Tamron 500 mirror lens with 2x teleconverter and had no problems whatever. It's a compact zoom, not a long telephoto.

    It does not look like a standard tripod collar with quick release will fit this lens. You may be able to use something like this:

    But these are getting tricky to find. Once you know the size, you may be able to adapt what are called guide scope rings:

    Once you get things worked out, show us some photos!

    This has been a very interesting thread. I never heard of Dual ISO and almost thought it was an in-joke (like "blinker fluid" for cars). To return the favor, I found this awesome video that explains the details, but you will need at least 2 or 3 cups of coffee to keep up:

    CatsAreGods got a reaction from K PRETHVIRAJ in Fuji x-S10 best for vlogging?   
    Seems like your question is more about using the camera as a webcam than about vlogging. There's a big discussion about this very subject in this very forum; one person even discusses that switcher. I found that the simplest solution was to bypass the buggy Fujifilm webcam software and just buy around $20 worth of cables:

    There are dummy batteries for NP-W126, even a kit from Fuji.
    I'm using one, let me know if you want the reference.

    Are you using Focus Check?
    The point of the zoomed view is so that you can verify (or fine tune the focus).

    Thanks @CatsAreGods I had somehow ignored or missed this very explicit reference in the manual that answers the question. However, the answer to "why doesn't the USB power connection eliminate any battery drain?"  remains a mystery. I think this model and the switch to USB-C was not as well engineered as we'd expect from a company like Fujifilm.

    It's ok. I have the X-T30 mounted on a microscope and just wanted to tether. Instead I've gone back to using the hdmi output.

    I must have came in very late to this thread and obviously missed something.
    http://fujifilm-dsc.com/en-int/manual/x-s10/about_this_camera/parts/
    This clearly shows where to attach a remote release cable and explains how to adapt the standard Fujifilm remote release cable to work with the X-S10.

    CatsAreGods reacted to skipcooney in Fuji X: Tips & Tricks   
    Here is a feature that caused me some grief. If you select Auto for Dynamic Range, the LCD and EVF will no longer display shutter speed and aperture except when the shutter button is pressed halfway. It took me a while to figure out why shutter speed and aperture were missing from the display.

    Its a bit of a pain - I did it for the X-T30 - Bill's contact details are on his web site - if you email him he'll explain the process.

    The X-S10 sensor is very close to the one in the X-T4, so keep an eye out for any X-T4 results and your X-S10 should be very close. This site publishes listings for various camera bodies, hut has not yet been updated for either of those two:

    It would already have it most likely. That is not really a direct user setting, just something the internal software switches on or off depending on what the user set iso, shutter speed, ev comp, aperture, etc are doing. The X-T3 switches at ISO 800.
    Fujifilm sensors tend to be ISO invariant so that also plays into when the switch is made.

    CatsAreGods got a reaction from jerryy in alternative lenses for nature photography?   
    I have the iconic 70-210 f4 "beercan" telephoto (I saw a lens today by either Sigma or Tokina with the same specs and wondered if it's a copy) and a 500 Tamron f8 mirror lens, both used with a Maxxum and then a Sony S58 (I also have a Tokina 11-16 for the Sony, this works even better on the Fujifilm because I don't really have to focus it). I generally keep the aperture setting on the adapters somewhere in the middle unless I really need it wide open.

    Which ones are you using? I have a 200mm parfocal which gives good images though it is a bit heavy.
     
    edit: it is a Minolta MD 75 - 200mm f4.5 parfocal lens. I have it “glued” to a Fotasy MD-FX (manual of course) adapter.
