x-pro2 auto ISO - why nothing higher than 1/500th?


Recommended Posts

I like to set my min. shutter speed to 1/1000th of a second on my sony when shooting street in auto ISO. But it appears there is no option to go higher than 1/500th on my Fuji. This is quite perplexing to me. Obviously the camera is capable of higher shutter speeds. Why this limitation? Is there a way around this??

I set mine to 12800.  It's definitely possible in the menus.  I don't have my camera with me at the moment, but let me know if you need a walkthrough.

I mean the shutter speed not the ISO... I set my max ISO to 3200 or 6400 but I can't set the min. shutter speed higher than 1/500. Just seems odd, I can set it as high as I want on my Sony

Its the same for all Fuji X series cameras - its annoying.

On the X-T series if you are in Program Exposure mode you can set one of the command dials to S.S. (Program Shift) and rotate the dial to up the shutter speed - then it should stay as a minimum - not sure if this works for your camera.

Not ideal but maybe better than nothing.

    • I don’t have it as I went for the literal bag of primes (16, 23, 35 & 50) but the XF 16-55 f2.8 is well regarded as a “bagful of primes”. 16mm is a 24mm equivalent on the wide end and 55mm is close to an 85mm equivalent. F2.8 gives a good level subject separation/bokeh. Not small or light but plenty of folks sing it’s praises. Dave
    • Not really, unless you want to limit yourself a lot on the image quality. For portraits I would recommend at least an 85mm F/1.4 lens. For landscape photography it depends on whether you want to make panoramas and then the question is which focal length or image effect you want to achieve. There is a lack of more precise information on your part.
    • Does the aperture ring have whole, half or a third gradations?
    • Hi When I was researching impressions of the new Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 R LM WR and how it pairs with different bodies I found very little info and/or images of the lens together with an X-E4 body. I therefore figured I should make a post about it so other people researching the same thing can find these picture and info. I have attached some pictures showcasing the lens on my X-E4 body. One very interesting/sad thing to note is that if the aperture ring is left at the 1.4 mark the auto lock knob/button will actually touch the flat surface on which the camera is placed which is not ideal. This is however not an issue when having the lens hood mounted, if a Peak Design style screw mount is attached or if moving the aperture ring to the 2.0 mark. All these pictures are taken with my phone so they are not really of stellar quality but are probably useful anyway  My overall impression of the lens thus far is really good, it produces very sharp images even fully open. It balances quite well with the X-E4; when actually shooting it feels really good but when carrying it around it is a bit front heavy. I found that there is a dramatic change in carrying comfort if the strap is mounted on the body in a diagonal fashion so to speak, i.e. with one anchor at either side of the body and one at the bottom screw mount. Using this configuration really offsets the balance point when carrying your camera diagonally, sling style.   Also, this is my first post at the forum so ... Hi all
