X-Pro 3 Shutter dial lock

Recommended Posts

More of an observation but it foxed me! (Yes I admit did not read the manual).

On my X-T3, the shutter dial locks to my mind logically. If I lock the dial, whatever speed including A, is set and cannot be changed until I unlock the dial.

On the X-Pro 3 this is not the case. If I lock the dial in anything but A position, the lock does nothing. If I set shutter dial at position A and press the lock button,

then I need to press and hold the lock button to make a change from the A position.

When one is used to X-T3 and in fact GFX-50R way this is a bit confusing until one is used to it.

Otherwise the camera is a real treat to use.

Agreed. Never noticed till you pointed that out. 

Question for you.

Does your X Pro 3 in single frame mode blackout the screen and say "sroring". Mune does but that doesn't happen on eother X Pro 2 or XT3.

This is the same locking mechanism carried over from the X-Pro1 and X-Pro2 so existing X-Pro owners won’t be so confused by it (in fact the XT1 worked this way too).  The lock is *only* used to lock the dial in A position, engages automatically when the dial is set to A, and must then be pressed to release before setting any other speed.  
 

I agree the later XT style lock is probably more useful, but I wonder whether it was just too complicated to try and implement that as well as the combined ISO dial the X-Pro uses.

Also see this thread "X Pro 3 Blackout when in single frame mode??" and 'Threaded's' excellent short answer to your other issue and my reply. It seems turning Clarity on with a value involves more processing and then the Storing message.

 

These forums are so useful!

X-Pro 3 delivered an hour ago and after 15 minutes of getting acquainted with buttons an dials I figured the lock must be broken on this shutter dial. Glad I found this thread....another X-T3 user who was scratching his head. Guess I still am a bit since it seems an odd choice, although I do note comments that it's consistent with previous X-Pro models.

    • I must admit this post really surprised me, I have just moved from a Canon DSLR and apart from the articulated screen not feeling as robust, and the battery/connector doors a little brittle, I thought the build quality was good. To me everything feels really solid.
    • I think I already know the answer, but does anyone know if you can set a time that you need to hold down a custom button before it operates? I've just moved from a larger DSLR and I have large hands, and have found that I keep catching the custom buttons, so have had to unassign them all. If for example you needed to hold down a button for a second before it operated then it would remove the chance of inadvertently changing settings.
    • Hi, thanks for the response. Yes I was surprised, I had taken them at dusk across small bay with some lights on the shoreline, hoping just to blur the sea. However the lights were all over the place.
    • This is precisely the issue that Fujifilm should fear with their current release policy. Welcome to the world of many X-H1 early buyers who paid a premium price for the flagship model only to find out it was undermined by Fujifilm's release policy just a few months later. No significant firmware updates anymore, topped-up by a price cut of 45% and no clear model policy going forward. The issue is that Fuji (unlike Sony) uses the same core technology (sensor and processor) for different came
    • Have Fuji forgotten the XT30? The XT3 got an update that allowed it to be used as a web cam, its just had another update to upgrade its focus performance to XT4  levels. I'm beginning to wish I'd stayed with Nikon or gone for a Sony. Having said that, Fuji's own XS-10 looks great. Why would anyone buy an XT30 now? it seems suddenly very old and unattractive.
