Locking the focus area.


Recommended Posts

  • 1 year later...

This problem had really p**sed me off, BUT there is a new update which addresses it - thank goodness. After installation go to wrench (spanner), button/dial and go right to the end of the options were you will find a LOCK function. Click on that and you will be given a whole list of buttons/dials which you can lock, one of which is the focus lever. Hallelujah - it works! No more worrying about where the focus point has gone after the camera has been swinging around your clothing on the end of the strap.

I have my back focus button enabled and remember assigning AF-Lock as well to the same button. I am not sure it works/worked, because today while I set my focus using the 'back button focus' and roamed around clicking more pics. Noticed that most of the shots were not in focus and also noticed the focus point had moved away from the centre. I will explore the new settings that Bro. @Alchymist has mentioned. Thanks.

    • I have looked for this sort of topic before posting but could not find what I was looking for so asking from scratch.Hi, Im dipping my toes into the gimbal world and have zero experience. Im looking for something which could support an X-T2 with a VPB-XT2 booster pack and XF 8-16mm f2.8. Yes I know its a heavy combination, Im not wanting to spend loads of money, can you recommend anything?   Im really needing some help from members that have X-T2's with either feiyu-tech or zhiyun-tech experience with these cameras. Their sites only list X-T3's as being compatable, Im not sure whether they work with X-T2's.Thanks...
    • I'm pretty sure they're referring to back-Button Focus (Manual Focus mode, with instant AF-S or AF-C). I've noticed an apparent improvement since updating the firmware.
    • New X-T4 user here too. Had the exact same problem after unboxing and snapping some tests. Solution: The Drive dial under the ISO was almost turned to CL rather than S, but just barely, like it had hung in-between the two settings. Flicked it solidly over to S and everything was fine.
    • >The accuracy of AF function has been improved at manual focus mode using "One-Push AF".   can somebody expand on this?  “One-Push AF” isn’t a term they use in my manual.   https://fujifilm-x.com/en-ca/support/download/firmware/cameras/x-s10/
    • I love the images the TTArtisans 50mm F1.2 renders. X-P2, TTArtisans 50mm F1.2@F1.2@ 1/4000 sec.
