X-S10 tethering and X Acquire


Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hi. I just bought a new X-S10 and one of the first things I tried was to tether it in some way to my computer (Mac). I downloaded the Fujifilm X Acquire software as it shows the X-S10 as a compatible model. But I can’t seem to discover the way to make it work.

The software doesn’t detect the camera.

I looked in the connection settings menu of the camera and I don’t see the usual options that seem to be needed to tether the camera.

Does anyone know if there’s a way to send pictures directly to a computer while shooting on the X-S10?

thanks in advance

Tethering is not supported by the x-s10. Some optimists think that this lack of functionality is a bug that will be fixed by Fuji. unfortunately,  not offering tethering in the x-s10 is a strategic marketing decision by Fuji like they did with the x-t30.

x-aquire only enables usb-based download of pictures or videos stored on the camera. you can do this with any file explorer.

The problem is that Fuji X-acquire on a Mac at least isn’t working at all with my camera. No tethering (I get that this is on purpose so people buy the X-T4), no syncing of the images vai usb, nothing.

And no, on a Mac a simple file explorer isn’t enough to access the files on the camera as it doesn’t mount as an external drive. I either have to get a card reader or use Image capture software.

Why put a camera on the compatibility list if the software doesn’t even recognize and connect to the camera?

ok. Its meaning that I can't connect my camera with Capture One for example? I want to make a pictures directly from Capture One. It is possible with x s10?

Well, I absolutely loved this camera until I tried to shoot tethered. 

This was an absolute disappointment to me, as I am a pro, and wanted the camera to be my walk about, and my back up in the studio, and on location. Well it looks like only the first part of that plan is going to happen. Not being able to shoot tethered is such an unnecessary crippling of an otherwise wonderful instrument.  If I had known about this limitation, I doubt I would have bought it, I probably would have gotten an XT4 and used my existing XT2 as the back up. So, Fuji kind of screwed themselves out of $800 in camera sales, and screwed me out of a new studio cam.

As owner of a Fuji X-S10 I have the same problem: in the "connections" menu there are no choices that allow you to select "tethering ..."

The X-S10 camera, however, appears in the list of models that support Fujifilm X acquire software. Fuji should give an explanation.

Hi, I'm So Frutrated by this no tethering mode avalable on X-S10.
 

PLEASE Fuji: make an update for this.

 

I believe there's a petition, or address at Fujifilm to write to, in a thread about Ronin gimbals.

I was literally about to buy this camera for use with a Laowa macro lens, but if it can't be used with a desktop stacking app, then forget it.

The support page for C1 21 shows a clear delineation between what Fuji considers "tether-worthy" cameras and those that aren't...including the X-S10. Foolish choice on their part; and I'm not bumping up to an X-T4 just to tether.

My other candidate is the Canon M6 II, which can tether w/ live-view. As can Nikon's Z50.

    • Hi, DaveC. Thank you so much for the really valuable information...very much appreciated! On the power off/on, I guess I was being a little too impatient when pressing the shutter. On the auto ISO, I'll definitely give it a try, as that's a pretty important one for me. I have found that the ISO button and joystick pretty easy to reach while looking at the EVF, so maybe there's no reason to reassign the top left dial. With only a little time spent with the X-S10 so far, I have found the AF and image quality outstanding, as you noted. Even with the challenges of learning a new system, it's been fun getting to know my new toy! Again, thank you for responding to my inquiry. Pentax Forums is a valuable source of information for Pentax users, and it's nice to know Fuji X Forum can provide similar advice and support. Cheers!  
    • OK thanks for the reply,  It's seems like a pretty straightforward thing to implement with all the super fast ssd available in the market.  Maybe in the next model..
    • I don't believe it is possible sadly.   But would be great if it was. 
    • Welcome rickc, I too was new to Fuji when I got my X-S10 and 16-80mm last December. It is a great camera and lens combo. Point 1. To wake up the camera just half press the shutter button but keep it pressed for a second or too and it will wake up. When half pressed you will feel the IBIS doing its thing , thats OK, just keep it pressed till it wakes up. Point 2. Set the X-S10 to M mode on the mode dial and you will have aperure on the front dial and shutter speed on the rear dial. Then set the iso to Auto, Press the iso button on the top plate and use the joy stick to scroll down to the auto iso settings. The user manual does explain the auto iso settings quite well (the pdf that is). Note you can also re-assign the top left dial to exposure compensation if you like that as well. I have been using these settings just lately to photograph butterflies at high shutter speeds. I came from using Canon and Nikon cameras and find the image quality is outstanding and hope you continue to enjoy the camera. Best wishes DaveC.
