X-H1 EVF blackout


Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hi all,


Just purchased an X-H1 (long time X-pro2 user) - seems a very nice camera. It seems the processor is a bit slower than my pro2. Software is 2.13.

Question, is there any way around EVF blackout (besides at CH @ 11fps?) Its really distracting. My Pro2 does not do this at all.

Thanks all,

Make sure you have the Performance set to BOOST in the Setup menu. That way, you'll get the highest screen refresh rate in the X-H1. The sensor and the processor are identical in the X-Pro2 and the X-H1. The EVF is not. The X-H1 has a higher res EVF that requires more processing, so technically it could lead to slightly longer blackouts. 

You might also want to check your focus and exposure settings in the X-H1. Both can also affect the black-out time of the EVF.

Focus and Exposure

Select focus mode C to vary focus with shot; to vary exposure with each shot, select OFF for icn_ff62-d2_20.svgBUTTON/DIAL SETTING > SHUTTER AE.

Selecting CH in focus mode C restricts the choice of focus frames.

Exposure and focus tracking performance may vary with such factors as aperture, sensitivity, and exposure compensation.
