Problem with overriding manual shutter speed (X-Pro2)


Recommended Posts

Hi! I was shooting a volleyball match this evening with X-Pro2 & 16-80mm/f4. I have set the shutter speed to 1/1000s and auto ISO, but while taking the photos, something overrode my manual shutter speed setting, and after few dozen of shots it switched first to 1/1250s and then to 1/1600s without me noticing it, pushing the ISO from 5000 to 10000. What is it about, is it some combination of buttons that does this, and how to prevent it?

Oh, I have figured it out, it is the front command dial I was even not aware of, I was accidentally moving it while turning the camera from landscape to portrait framing, and it overrode my manual shutter speed setting, which is kind of annoying that it is there and does that, totally unnecessary, I can only be more careful, too many dials and buttons.

It didn't exactly "override" your manual shutter speed. The front dial is designed to get you those in-between shutter speeds that do not exist on the shutter speed dial, so it actually "fine-tunes" your chosen shutter speed, giving you greater precision of control.   This is easily turned off in the menu so that it will never impact your shutter speed.

    • Update firmware instructions are here. I never use the app, but use a card as it is the most reliable way to update the firmware.
    • Hi All, The L-Bracket I brought from Aliexpress is pretty good. The side bracket is adjustable and removable. I love it.

    • Mabuhay! Most of my photo journey is from Pentax DSLRs from K-x, K-30, K-5iis and their Limited lens lineup 15/4, 21/3.2 my fave!, 40/2.8, 35M/2.8, 70/2.4, 100M/2.8 and even the 20-40 2.8-4 WR (~10 years, shooting general photography and sometimes paid gigs like, weddings and events) while they produce excellent image quality (especially colors and DR) I began to feel the limitations when it comes to the AF department. Fast forward, I too was smitten by the mirrorless bandwagon, I tried Canon EOS M for a very short while, while my M50/M6 provided me with small footprint and better AF speed and accuracy, I felt shortchanged when it comes to IQ, When my last DSLR conked out, slowly dispatched my lens collection and stated looking for an everyday camera, and when a wonderful lightly used/mint X100V in Silver/Brown edition popped out in our local marketplace, I quickly snagged it from the seller. From there I was immediately hooked with the camera as it was very fun and engaging to use. I love film sims, Classic Chrome rocks but later on, I intend to experiment shooting with RAW+ to up my skill. I also bought a WCL and even the expensive (for me) Hoage square metal hood. I am also planning to buy an ILC in order to complement my existing camera, but as of now, I am not sure which to get, either keeping align with the Fuji in the likes of X-T2 or X-T3 in the hopes to mimic my previous set up from my old system, or try to get a FF camera for the different FF look. (Sony A7iii/iv) Anyways, I am hoping to learn more from this forum, meet new friends and at the same way get inspired with the photos being shared here. Stay safe Thank you so much.
