XPro3 image preview not working with OVF


Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hello,

All of a sudden, the image preview function (to preview the image just shot) stopped working when using the optical viewfinder. (Works fine with the EVF).

Has anybody had this problem before? Anything I can do short of sending it back?

Many thanks!

I think you mean the Image Display function that allows you to review the image after you've taken it? First of all, the image is usually only displayed on the back LCD panel, not in the viewfinder regardless of OVF or EVF. If and if so for how long it will be displayed is a setting in the SET UP/SCREEN SET UP menu. From OFF, via 0.5s and 1.5s to Continuous, meaning until you half press the shutter release button according the manual.

There's a catch though. When you have the view mode of the viewfinder set to 'eye sensor' and take your eye away from the viewfinder to view the LCD and you move back to the viewfinder, the image display also disappears as if you half pressed the shutter release button. The second catch is that only when you've disabled the LCD in the view mode, the Image Display will be in the view finder, regardless whether in OVF or EVF mode. In that situation the eye sensor doesn't act as a half press of the shutter release button.

I suggest that you take some tests with the Image Display set to Continuous and varying between EVF and OVF as well as the view mode of the VF/LCD. You may have changed a setting that leads to the unexpected behavior.

Thanks for your message! I always have the back LCD panel on my XPro3 closed, so I didn’t think it would do any previews. But I’ll check the settings of the view mode VF/LCD and do some tests. Thanks again.

      I had about 20 minutes or so in the pretty Yorkshire village of Haworth, best known as the home of the Bronte sisters (Withering Heights / Pride & Prejudice etc).  Here are a few pics. All taken with X-Pro3 and 90mm lens.

      I recently bought my xpro3 but I have an issue with the evf when I half press the shutter button, sometimes the screen is glitching with purple or pink  abstract patches on some areas of the evf screen. It happens quickly and disappear after it focus on the subject. It does this when the camera and lens are having trouble with what it focus. And also this happens randomly. I used xf 35mm f1.4 as it is my only lens for now. Anyone had this issue? I havent update my camera yet, since I can't download as they halt the current firmware for now. Please help.

      SOLVED: I feel like a silly goose but I'll leave this here for anybody who finds this helpful. Originally posted this query because what I saw through the optical viewfinder was LARGER than the picture that is actually taken. This is just how the OVF in this camera works: it's bigger than what's actually seen by its lens. Never personally encountered this before in a camera. No, you cannot disable this behavior.
      Original post:
      Hi all, I'm new to this forum and just purchased a used X100F (an upgrade for me... I've spent time behind a Nikon film camera and an older model of Fujifilm X. I spend most of my time taking pictures of flowers).
      I've been struggling with one particular feature, not knowing how to disable it, not knowing what it's called in the menu system: When I look through the OVF and press shutter lightly to autofocus, sometimes the frame lines contract pretty small. It's like there's a "smart auto-crop" deciding how to frame my photo. But I want to be able to decide that for myself. This only happens when my eye is to the OVF; it doesn't happen on the LCD screen.
      Can I turn this feature off? Or is this permanent, in OVF? Or is my camera malfunctioning? (bought it used...dual viewfinder is out-of-order, for one) More context: I am not using a teleconverter. I'm not using zoom. I've been perusing reviews, forums, the user manual... nothing sounds like what I'm describing.
      Does anyone know what this is called and whether I can disable this feature? Thank you in advance!
