Hi,

I'm having some weird issues with the Fringer EF-FX Pro II on my Fuji XT3 and I hope someone can help.

When using the adapter with my Canon and Sigma lenses the image on the camera LCD is not showing the correct depth of field for the selected aperture unless I half-press the shutter button.

The dof in the image remains wide open unless I half-press the shutter.

The exposure of the image is shown correctly and changes accordingly when changing the apertue on the lens, the aperture numbers on the screen also indicate the correct selected f-stop, but the dof in the image remains shallow, as if the lens is wide open, unless I half-press the shutter.

Half pressing the shutter also no longer affects the focus of the image.

I'm shooting in S mode with settings full manual- ss, iso, aperture.

I've formatted the camera, updated to the latest firmware in camera and adapter (1.7) and the issue still persists.

Is this there a menu fix I'm missing here? Has anyone else experienced this? Or is this possibly a Fringer issue?

Thanks for your help!

It sounds like correct behavior of Fuji X camera. I'd recommend to check your AF-mode switch at the front of camera.

If it's set to "S" or "C" then in manual F/SS/ISO you will see DOF changes.

But if AF-mode is set to "M" then in manual F/SS/ISO mode you will only see exposure changes, but aperture remains wide open showing same DOF.

    • The difference only applies if you have set the camera to display the image after shooting (Screen Setting => Image Disp in the menu) - otherwise they behave the same. With Eye Sensor the image display option is shown in both evf and lcd (in other words you see the image you just shot in either the evf or lcd) - but with Eye Sensor + LCD Display that image is only shown in the lcd not the evf. The advantage of the second option is that you can use the evf and keep shooting without the delay for showing the image you just shot - but take your eye away from the evf and see that image in the lcd.
    • Options two and three essentially turn the eye sensor off, these are always-on settings for either of those two, but only one at a time. You can set it up to switch between them. If you read a bit further to the part about the set-up menu section, screen setup -> view mode setting, you have some options regarding the evf and lcd display modes. The first and last options seem the same, but I think if you try them you will see a difference.
    • Thanks jerryy, but this doesn't tell me how to turn the sensor off. From what I see from the various choices the first and last are identical in how they function.
    • https://fujifilm-dsc.com/en-int/manual/x-h2/about_this_camera/display/index.html#choosing_display_mode Scroll down to the actual Choosing a Display Mode section
    • Is there a way of turning the eye sensor OFF so that both EVF and LCD screen are ON, ALWAYS? There have been too many times while shooting with a tripod that when approaching the LCD screen to take a closer look at the screen the eye sensor detects my fat head and switches the LCD screen OFF. Quite annoying!  Thanks, Tom
