Camera Slow in Single Frame shooting mode


OrangeCandle

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

i got my x-t4 about a month ago and have been really enjoying it so far. I dove into some fuji film jpg recipes over the weekend and noticed that shooting in single frame mode really slowed the camera down when using recipes.

What seems to be happening is that after taking the picture the camera screen goes black, says "storing" and shows a little loading icon, after about a second its ready to take the next shot. So it seems as if the camera cant process the data in the background. So there is a "blackout" after taking photo where i cant take another photo.


When using CH or CL or the BKT mode, shooting speed is not noticably slowed down and the jpg processing seems to be done in the background, even between two BKT- Shots there is no delay / processing screen and the camera is snappy as i think its supposed to be.


A friend owns an x-t2 and has no speed issues when using jpg processing + single frame shooting, so i think this might be down to firmware.

Has anyone heard of this, can confirm this, knows whether its a bug or a feature, knows if fuji is working on it, or has even found a solution?

Thank you.

Thanks for the replies!

yes, i was using the clarity setting (at +1) and setting it to 0 did fix the storing screen.

What still bugs me tho, is that when using other shooting modes even with clarity there is no delay. But that means its definetly a Firmware issue that is hopefully resolved soon.

 

im using a 128 GB Lexar 1667x sd card. its plenty fast and i have not encountered storage issues anywhere else so far.

I'm glad that you got it settled.  The XT4 is spendy...  And glad that there are no issues with the SD card.

Don’t have the XT4 anymore sadly, but I remember that it only occurred in single shot mode,  shooting in burst mode was never an issue. What you could do is set your burst speed to 5 fps and that way it should be fairly easy to just take one picture, and not have the processing screen delay even when clarity is something other than 0.

But again, no idea I’d they fixed my initial problem via firmware in the meantime.

    • Hello out there, had anyone have the issue where the shutter speed switches back and forth. It charges rapidly up or down, it does not matter which speed I set it on. Unless the settings are on Auto, B or T, it does not cause this issue. I've updated the firmware, reseting, removed the lens. This is the video of the issue. https://youtu.be/_lYjXbEPCj4
    • Is it the short or long press that is bothering you? I don't think you can do anything about the long press but if you set the second and third actions to "none" then a short press should do nothing. (Admittedly I haven't tested this on the X-T5 but according to the manual it works the same as my X100VI)
    • One thing that is bugging me about my X-T5 is that I keep accidentally pressing the front command dial in. This brings up an options screen that totally blanks out the viewfinder. It has happened when I’m trying  to capture ‘people moments’ - that passing smile or expression and it. Is REALLY annoying! I can see how to disable the command dial wheel actions but not the press in button action. Is there a way? If not please Fuji, give us the option to disable the button action! Should be a simple software fix? Anyone else have this issue?
    • Leofoto makes one specifically for that camera and the gfx 50sii which I am using right now. It fits perfectly and it works. Cheaper than the 3 legged thing also.
    • Hello. When I bracket my exposure in a high contrast scene, I found a puzzling behavior and I am hoping you can help me understand why it is happening. Typically, when I bracket a scene I start by taking a picture that protects the highlights from clipping and I do that by watching the Histogram and the highlight clipping indicator. Then I bracket a series of shots adding more exposure. Usually at most the biggest range was 8 times the exposure needed for the highlights. That is what I used to do with my XT3 before I started using the GF50siiI. Since I started using the GF that calculation no longer works. For instance, in the 2 pictures I added below as an example I held the ISO at 100 and the Aperture say at F8, and changed the speed to take 1 picture to optimize the brightest highlight, and 1 picture to optimize the shadows. As you can see the difference in exposure between those 2 shots is huge. One shot was take at 1.3" and the other shot at 60".  Is that normal for the GF camera? If it is normal, then I figured that what I need to do to bracket shots is to take a shot to optimize the highlights, another shot to optimize the darkest shadows, and then take maybe a couple of more shots in between. What do you think?
