Hi, I'm wondering if I have an issue with my camera and maybe someone can offer some guidance. I have a Fujifilm X-T30 with an 18-55 XF Zoom lens and was trying out Aperture Priority (AP) for the first time. My setup was: Manual Focus, F11, ISO 80, AF mode single point, Photometry to Multi, DR 100. Also, Exposure Compensation Dial (ECD) set to 0. I took a picture and check for any blown-out highlights. It was generally a bright day with white clouds, so at F11 the camera was choosing about a shutter speed of 1/170 and I was getting blown out highlights. So I then use the ECD to reduce the exposure by a stop or more but sometimes (quite often in fact), and still in AP mode, the camera would 'suddenly' show 1/4000 in red on the display. (Note: turning the ECD back to 0 did not force the camera to go back to the original shutter speed). With the ECD set to -2, I switch the camera off and back on, the problem no longer there and a faster shutter speed selected. The manual states: "If the correct exposure cannot be achieved at the selected aperture, shutter speed will be displayed in red." It looks like the camera is having difficulty for whatever reason The body firmware is at 1.00 and the lens at 3.22. Am I doing something wrong or is there an issue with the camera in AP mode? Cheers, Rael
I wonder whether anyone else has had this problem (I know someone else has - from a post on the X-T3 FB group. I just cannot persuade the front command dial to adjust the aperture! Tried using the 18-55 and the 80mm. And yes: it's set to Aperture Priority (lens not set to A; shutter knob set to A; ISO set to...well, any setting other than A). EVF confirms I'm in Aperture Priority. And if I set EC to C and press in the front command, the dial does adjust EC. So it seems it's just the aperture adjustment I can't get to work. And yes: in Menu, I went to wrench/spanner, selected Button/Dial Setting/Command Dial Setting, and set "1" (F) to Aperture. Any suggestions? Of course I can change aperture on the lens, but the front command dial SHOULD work (shouldn't it?), and it would be handy if it did... Thanks for any comments! Heather
