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.

      Hello! 
       
      I’m a bit worried I did a bad deal. I bought a used Fujifilm XT-3 quite cheap yesterday. I am the 3rd owner.
      The first owner was a professional photographer that bought the camera in 2019.
      Neither me or the seller can find the shutter count by checking the EXIF. He got a shutter count of 391, I got a count of 3. 
      Seller told me he had the camera on service once to fix the shutter button, could the service guys have reset the counter?
      I also noticed when I got home I had to put in the date and time again even though I tested the camera like two hours before at the sellers place.
      I read this might be due to a small capacitor that stores some memory. Can this be the reason behind the reset shutter count?
      Appreciate any advice on how I can find the total shutter count, if I should return the camera or just live with the unknown and enjoy the camera.

      Greetings, Fuji friends! I'm having a conundrum. I have a slew of footage from an X-T3 I'm assembling in Premiere Pro. Footage specs:
       
      - 30 and 60 fps 4K
      -10 bit (internal) 8:2:0
      -H265
      -HEVC
      -All shot in F-log
       
      All of the unedited shots look great (for F-log, that is) in iMovie and QuickTime. When I ingest them into Premiere Pro, however, there's a bizarre pixelated swath of green and pink in the lowlights. No amount of color correction can solve it, and Davinci Resolve is no better. I have tried changing sequence settings, converting to Pro Res, and attempted many different encoding formats in Media Encoder with limited to no success. 
      Has anyone ever faced this issue? Adobe support is stumped. Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

      Hi everyone,
      I am new to the vintage lenses topic and just purchased first M42 adapter from well known K&F Concept - Pro version.
      The issue is it seems to be a bit loose while mounted to the X-T10.
      Is that normal or it should perfectly fit?
      Three very tiny screws are on the adapter - what are they designed for?
      I will appreciate any you opinions on that.
      Kind Regards,
      Arek

      Hi,
      I’m thinking about purchasing the GFX100s for architecture photography.
      Can anyone share their experience?
      What Tilt/shift lens can I can use? I don’t believe that Fuji offers a T/S, correct?Currently, I’m using a Canon 5DMK IV with the EF 24 T/S. Is there a way to use that lens on the GFX100s? 
      Thank you,
      Mark

    • I must have activated the wrong setting because now when I switch to the OVF the white windows stays for a second and then completely disappears. Any idea how to get it back? Thank you all so much. 🙂
    • No thunder stolen. If you read to the end of my article you'll see (in the section "Resources") I have a link for Simon Weir's site. I also have two other links on there with various IR tests. My article is only Fuji-centric because that is my system of choice though I've done a ton of IR work with Sony FF as well. I consider the sites for which I provide links to be complementary and I wish there were more sites out there evaluating for infrared. Although I test for infrared quite thoroughly I can only afford so many lenses. The eight Fuji mount lenses shown in my article I bought myself. In fact, same with the Sony and Micro 4/3 with the exception of the two Sony APS-C zooms that were rented. Also when I get new lenses, I'll update the article on my blog. I can't update the PetaPixel one as they just republished what was on my blog at the time. I have recently shot with the Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f1.2 Fuji-X and 7Artisans 35mm f0.95 Fuji-X. After trying 2 samples of the Voigtlander I returned them both but mainly for their strange and unacceptable (for my work) performance with resolution. Regarding IR, the Voiglander is free of hotspots from 1.2 through about f3.5. I'm impressed with the 7Artisans overall but it only works for IR at wider apertures (f0.95 through about f2.8.) Then again that's why you buy an f/0.95 lens. Thanks for the feedback. Happy shooting! Joel
    • Yes I don’t blame you. I’ll always have some Fujifilm gear. But if they don’t upgrade their gear in the next 3 months I’m going to go back to Canon for a lot of my work. I really love Fujifilm for all the right reasons but it’s faults are getting in the way of my work at this point.
    • You're welcome. I still use my X-Pro2 for personal work every now and then, but I replaced the X-H1 (and the rest of the Fuji-kit) with a Z7II-based kit and I'm very satisfied with that move.
    • That’s a lot of great info. I’m gonna explore those options. I don’t really wanna get an XT4 at this point. (Come on X-H2!) Thanks!
