No OIS on/off switch on the new 16-80/4 !?

Recommended Posts

Hi.

Recently got the combo XT4 and 16-80/4 lens and was really surprised to see no OIS on/off switch like my 10-24/4 lens.

I see in the menu an option for IS on/off ... I'm assuming that is for just the sensor?  Is there no way to turn the lens IOS off but have just the sensor on or is this setup that when the menu says "on" both lens and sensor are on ... and when the menu says "off" both the lens and sensor are off?

Thanks!

The OIS of the 16-80 lens is managed from the camera shooting menu setting according to the lens manual.

That is correct, I have that lens. Screenshot for Photo (Still) mode below. I have not seen any settings that can enable camera OIS or lens OIS, it will be on (or off) in both if both camera and lens (as in this case) support OIS. If the lens do not support IOS the X-T4 camera OIS can be enabled by the Camera Shooting IS Mode setting. 
But watch this video so You know the limitations:

Thank you for the replies.

I know the difference between continuous and shooting only modes.  I feel the little description on the LCD for continuous mode doesn't help and is confusing.  But having read manuals, it's pretty straight forward.

So ... it appears that if the lens has a OIS on/off switch, we can go with just IBIS if we want (and in the menu turn off IBIS when on a tripod).  But if the lens doesn't have a switch then the lens OIS is on if the body IBIS is on and off if the body IBIS is off.

Adam,
As I understand it and have observed on my own X-T4 and lens XF 16-80mm F4 R OIS WR it is as You wrote above.

    • Thanks so much! My Q button was usable the day I bought my new Xt4 then whilst I was playing with the settings I disabled it somehow and didn't know what I'd done. You just made my day since I hadn't been able to work out how to get it back. I had noticed the lock on also but hadn't looked thru the manual yet to see what it was. 
    • Alguien me puede explicar como activar la sincronizacion en 2a cortina en mi X-T2? A pesar de dejar activado el rear de 2a cortina, cuando disparo con 1/1000 me sale como si estuviera haciendo la foto en sincro con la 1a cortina . Tengo un Godox 860II tengo que activar algo ahi?

    • Thank you for your insights. I think even without my menu it just starts "from scratch" in the menus, which is especially annoying if you change the buried custom display settings. Another minor problem is the display of the highest ISO if ISO is in auto mode in the display. I find it distracting and not of much value, instead I would like to see a real time update of the chosen iso of the current lighting situation. If I half press the shutter it seems to work this way but it doesnt seem v
    • My R2  (Fuji)transmitter no longer displays ttl as a Mode choice  on my Fuji Xt2, x100f and x100v. I only see M or -- as options when pushing the mode button. My older R2 Pro model does work in all three modes, M, ttl and --.    Problem solved.  The newer R2Mark II transmitter has a Shutter option with a choice of either Curtain or Leaf.  When Leaf is selected (appropriate for x100) then the only mode choices are M/--. If you select Curtain then the choice become M/TTL/-- .  If you select C
