Problem with X-PRO2 and lens adapters...

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hello all,

I am new to this forum and to digital photography. I just bought a new X-PRO2 and I am just starting to learn how to use the camera but one of the reasons I chose this one is so I could use my old Nikkor and Leica lenses on it. Last night I tried one of my Nikkor with the adapter I bought from B&H and every thing worked fine except the shutter I was not able to snap a picture. Is there a special setting I need to use? Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks in advance.

I got my XPro2 to work with my Nikon F manual lenses. Did have to hunt down that "Shoot without Lens" setting! Generally I find Fuji's menu structure to be less than comfortable for me. But then I've been Nikon since school, 1960-ish.

    • @maplineThanks for the answer,  I think i'm gonna opt for a wifi card instead, as it suits more my needs, (reducing transfer times and  timelapse real-time rendering). The hdmi thing would be ok if i wanted to capture video material, but i mainly do long exp/timelapses   Cheers
    • 1000 is a curious number - if you are using F-Log the minimum ISO is 640 - but haven't heard of any setting that restricts to 1000
    • I recently purchased a used Fujifilm X70 and there is something going on that I don't understand. Some times when I take photos the image comes up heavily distorted. It only seems to happen when I take a photo of a moving object, even at 1/1000 shutter speed and I'm not moving. I can understand some blur if my shutter speed is not fast enough, but this distortion? It only happens with moving objects, using manual and auto focus. I attached some images. The images are taken at 1/1000  F8. What co
    • I do remember reading from the website, and from Ken Wheeler that you need to use an SD card for updating.  Ken Wheeler highly recommends using SanDisk 300Mb/s cards.  Just relaying information.
    • Yeah, that sounds bad.  Check my post.  There is one dude, on the forum, and Ken Wheeler, who is trying to be helpful, to which I am very thankful.  Usually I try to wait at least 6 months to 1 year before buying.  Risky being a consumer tester for a new product.  In my case, I too had issues.  The "What Have You Done?" post.  Took it back the next day, but am willing to be as helpful as I can be.  If I don't have the answer, I'll ask around.  I'll definitely remain active in the forums, as I re
