How do you turn off manual focus on the lens barrel?

Recommended Posts

When I'm shooting street photography (or even landscape or architecture), I usually preset all my settings, and setup hyperfocal distance focus. As such, I do not want to accidentally knock focus out if I touch the focus ring on the lens barrel. Sometimes this can happen while I'm walking around and the camera is hanging from my strap. So I never know if I've disturbed the focus and now the camera is no longer ready for an instant shot.

So is there a way to turn OFF the lens barrel focus ring? it's seriously annoying to have that thing being so sensitive to just the slightest touch.

Thanks in advance.

    • First of all the upgrades are for the positive most times.  It's a Fuji thing.  Compared to other camera companies they are always updating and making their cameras better. Not sure about the XT4 freezing issues but I'm sure they've been addressed in firmware.  However I use the XT1, XT2, XH1, and the GFX system and I've NEVER had an issue.  
    • jerryy, Thanks for the advices. I really appreciate it. I have figured out as You have given hints about that I need to use more and more manual settings. Just I do not know enough so far what to change and to what value (or range). But I will start with what You suggested. I suppose as times goes and I learn more bit by bit and with trail and errors it will be easier. I used shutter speed Auto before but then I saw an "expert" saying 1/200 or 1/250 would be better so I tried that (just cha
    • HI there, i am a bit confused and hesitant. I am considering buying an X-T4 but seeing lots of people writing about them freezing amongst other issues. Also, having to continually update firmware seems like a pain especially given you need readers etc... What if you don't update ? Are all mirrorless like this ? No such hassles with DSLR's.  Can someone explain all this for me. Cheers.
    • yeah in the end i did. When i got it i immediately updated the firmware to the latest one. But i think i'm in love. this camera is great
    • That’s just the way it is
