Fuji X-S10 New Buyer Questions

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hello All, I'm about to purchase the X-S10 and I'm very attracted to the new user experience as it relates to Fuji. My questions are with the new Custom Settings C1-4, can you bracket them when shooting?  Or is that reserved for only the standard available film simulations.  With White Balance behavior, can I have a WB Shift as a default that is different than on the C1-4 dials? Also if you ever apply the White Balance Shift, does that also affect the RAW files if you shoot both JPEG & RAW? Thanks in advance to all these questions, because this looks to be an amazing camera!

Mig, I have a X-S10 and am very pleased with it.

You can have a different WB setting in each of the custom settings as well as in aperture priority or shutter priority or any other mode. If you set custom mode 1 to a WB setting of Daylight and then work in aperture priority with a auto WB but then switch back to custom mode 1 you will be back in daylight WB setting. When you switch back to aperture priority mode you will be back in auto WB.

You cannot bracket a custom setting, that makes no sense. A custom setting can incorporate a bracketed setting of some type.

You set up your camera with a variety of different settings eg black and white, auto WB, AF-C and then save them all as a custom setting so you can recall those settings whenever you need them.

For example I have C-1 set for action photography, C-2 for black and white and C-3 for sun rise and sun set (using different film sims and WB).

RAW files are not affected by WB in the camera. You assign a WB to them when you edit them .

Hope this helps, Dave.

    • 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.
