setting specific kelvin temperatures for white balance

Recommended Posts

Yes, I know, thanks. The problem is that the K values are in ranges of 3000K, for example, 5000, 5300, and 5600K. I wanted to set an intermediate value, for example, 5500K. I think that this could be corrected in a future firmware update and I will write Fuji about it.

Thanks again for trying to help me.

Are you shooting in RAW and processing your files or trying to achieve a jpeg white balance?  I am curious since it is so easy to adjust WB in post with RAW files.

FWIW, .  In the case of a jpeg, it is burnt in.  WB has no effect on a RAW file, it is an applied setting in the exif data after the image is taken and read by exif aware photo editors after the fact.

Yes my last DSLR had the ability to go in and change the colour in 1°K amounts if I wanted - its the only thing I miss as 95% time I adjust the colour temp on the fly according to the environment - ie on a Walk in broad sunshine it may be as low as 5000K,  but duck into some shaded woods and It could easily go up to 6000K or more.  On my X-T30 it has steps of 300k as mentioned above. Auto should solve it - but auto often turns up a balance I am not happy with & thats on all cameras to date. I wonder if an update would bring the ability to change by 100k amounts that would be sufficient I feel

      I just started using the Fuji XT3 and I'm having an issue with the colours of my final images. I custom set the white balance and in the LCD and EVF preview the photos are perfectly white balanced and exposed, however when I opened them on my laptop, the white background appeared more grey, and the overall image is more subdued. Is this normal or is there a setting I need to change?

      PLEASE DISREGARD. FIXED WITH A REBOOT. Sorry I can't see how to cancel this post.
      I have to use Lightroom Classic for a course. I am importing RAF files into LR from my XT3. The problem is a current assignment requires me to adjust the WB in LR using the various settings. But the only options I can see are As shot, Auto, and Custom. The other 6 or so options like Cloudy are not displayed as an option. I read that if you are processing jpgs or TIFFS then only  As shot, Auto, and Custom are available in LR. I am wondering if the Fuji RAF file format is seen by LR in a similar manner to a TIFF or jpeg (even though it is a raw file). I am wondering if any other Fuji users have experienced this problem with LR classic (current release).

      I have set up some custom white balance settings on my X100V, they save and are there until i use any custom profiles, then they reset back to default, had a friend with the same camera check, his resets as well, still the same after the firmware update, anyone else experienced this?

      Hi, I’m currently newer to the Fuji system and I love it! When shooting in log and hlg, is it best to set the white balance using a white card when shooting in those modes modes? I've heard that some shooters prefer to set the white balance while in a standard mode (e.g. eterna) and then switch over to log or hlg. Additionally, I’ve heard that since log (and somewhat similarly hlg) are “raw” modes, you can shoot and then set the white balance in post. To me, it makes sense to set the white balance while shooting in log or hlg and then tweak as necessary in post. Any thoughts?

      I have an xt3 and a technical question about focus while shooting video.
      Each time the autofocus stops recognizing the face of my subject, the camera changes focus to its defined focus square.
      This creates a light shift. How do I avoid this change? (I'll emphasize that my White Balance was custum so the light shifts has nothing to do with white balance)
      Here is an example:

    • Managed to answer my own question, finally. Just my newb stupidity. Looking forward to shooting with this camera!
    • I can get HSS with my following equipment, Fujifilm X-T1, Godox X1T-F remote , Manual HSS flash Godox TT600(no TLL). That is what I have and experience on. I don't advertise for any brands. You can try with the equipment you already owned.  The setting is the following: Manual setting is  1/800 sec.,  f/5.6 on the camera. With the X1T-F power on and set to Group A,m, 1/32, I am able to set in 'FP' sync (shows up only with the X1T-F turn on and on the camera) in 'Flash Function Setting'. Then set the TT600 flash to Radio slave and HSS mode(check on youtube channel for TT600 for setting if you use this equipment). The HSS may not work if the TT600 put on the camera hot shoe(need test or read manual booklet).  General speaking. you set the flash and the camera in HSS mode to get the HSS feather.  How to set is equipment dependent. From Tim's experience.  
    • I have a second issue. Ever since I loaded firmware to version 1.40 to my Fujifilm X-T30 camera body, back on May 25th, 2021, the HDMI output always mirrors the display settings, and anything there is present in the HDMI output.   Changing the 'HDMI OUTPUT INFO DISPLAY' setting to 'OFF' has no effect. https://fujifilm-dsc.com/en/manual/x-t30/menu_shooting/movie_setting/index.html#hdmi_output_info. Is this a 'bug'?  If so, can we get it fixed?  In the meantime, is there another way to get 'clean' HDMI output? Tony Becker
    • I have the same issue. Any updates on this topic?
    • Ever since I loaded firmware to version 1.40 on my Fujifilm X-T30 camera body,  back on May 25th, 2021, whenever the 'X Webcam' connection is made, Windows 10 opens Windows Explorer, and displays two new folders: 'This PC\X-T30\Live' 'This PC\X-T30\Still' On my X-T30, I can't find these 'folders' in the X-T30 'Select Folder' menu, but Windows seems to think they are available in my X-T30.   Because Windows finds and displays these two new folders the 'X Webcam' connection is made, they would be several layers easier to access than the default '100_FUJI' folder. How can I make these new folders 'selected folder' in my X-T30? Tony Becker
