I love my X-T20. It’s the best camera I’ve ever bought - except for one thing: since I bought it 15 months ago I’ve had to have the sensor cleaned three times. Previously, I’ve had a LUMIX G3 and G6 and never had to get them cleaned at all. I know getting the sensor cleaned is an occupational hazard for mirrorless camera owners but I don’t use this camera any more than those, so have I just been unlucky or is there something about the design of the X-T20 that makes it particularly vulnerable to dust and dirt?
I'd like to be able to film night scenes with bright objects in them - exposure compensation is absolutely required. Yet it seems to be disabled in movie mode on the X-T20. Can't find an explanation in the user manual. Can anyone tell me if it's possible? Thanks!
I'm a new X-T20 user . I found a most bookmarked thread in a forum suggesting picture profile settings inorder to gain rough RAW preview to facilitate ETTR.
There was a reply saying this can be simply achieved by turning off the "picture preview effect" under display settings . But there was also a counter message saying it wouldn't work and it said to use your desired simulation (with settings if you want). do a test (by increasing) and find out the safe +EV range you can recover.
I usually use exposure preview off with highlight clipping alert in order achieve ETTR. But some time I find although clipping warning doesn't come in evf, in post things are blown out and they can't be recoverable. Now I use 1/3 under than clipping highlight warning with "pic effect preview" turned off. Still I'm not confident.
Which method do you use to achieve ETTR?
Can you tell me if you are using provia simulation in x-t20 how many stops are recoverable in post?
If you tried picture preview effect off method along with high light clipping option like me to get EETR how it is working for you?
Thanks in advance
I am hoping the Fuji veterans here can offer suggestions to a problem I have with the Mount Adaptpr setting on the X-T20. For lenses 5 and 6, I can set the Focal Length. However, the Distortion, Color Shading, and Peripheral Illumination Correction options are (unshaded) disabled.
Firmware v2.0 is installed and the Shoot Without Lens is On. What have I missed?
Yup, that was what I thought. If you mainly use the viewfinder, then leave that setting turned off. It is intended (when turned on) for those that use the touch screen for viewing and choosing the focus point.
What happened to me was the touch screen was on and if my nose touched the screen whilst using the viewfinder, I would move the focus point. It was so annoying I have the touch screen turned off completely
