I notice that my Fuji x100f has a micro HDMI port. I know that it can be used to view live video on eg an external monitor as I shoot, but does anyone know if it will also output a live view of whatever the viewfinder is seeing while I'm shooting stills? What sort of device would I use to record that output?

I have an Elgato HD60 S+ that I use to capture the output from my X100F.  You must be in Movie mode in order to get the full resolution.

An interesting note is that the digital tele-converter does not work in HDMI output mode.

OTHERWISE, the following will happen. If you are in the wrong mode, you will get a lower res output.  Similarly, the viewfinder overlay will show up if you put something in near the eye sensor, this can be avoided by turning off all of the overlay items in the menu via WRENCH -> SCREEN SET-UP -> DISP. CUSTOM SETTING -> EVF/LCD; unfortunately, when the micro-HDMI is plugged-in, you can't disable the eye-sensor so it will always show unless you turn off the overlay items or just don't go near the eye sensor. 

Note: when the micro-HDMI cord is plugged in, the read/write LED will turn solid green when it recognizes an HDMI device.  Interestingly, when the micro-HDMI cord is plugged-in, you cannot toggle off the LCD's info overlay using the DISP/BACK button like you could when the micro-HDMI cord is not plugged-in. 

Another oddity is that you can use the hybrid OVF (when you select VIEWFINDER ONLY view mode) with the micro-HDMI plugged-in, and the signal you'll get will show the usual overlay and you can even toggle the Electronic rangefinder (ERF) window.  But, I don't really see an application for this.

    • 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

    • X100f stuck in A and P mode!  I just got my x100f back from servicing and even when I move the aperture ring and shutter dial away from A - it is still in A mode- if I move the aperture ring and shutter dial to A- I am in P mode.   I want M mode- I am pulling my hair out. Am I missing some step in settings or is my camera damaged from servicing? 
    • By chance do you have the settings for touch screen focus turned on? If so, then every time you look through the view finder, the focus point will bounce around like you are describing. Make certain it is turned off in the menus. That setting is more intended to be used with the big lcd screen.
    • I have an XT2 and have no issues transferring images from that camera. With the X100V, I'm getting really, REALLY frustrated and tired of not being able to use the app to transfer images.  - I had no problem pairing the devices. - I have opened the Fuji Remote app and have Fujifilm-x100V-18B8 visible with a flashing bluetooth icon and a solid wifi icon. - The camera says: iPhone-7459. Start Up Fujifilm app for digital camera and select the function Fujifilm-x100v-18B8.  - When I selec
