How to turn off front command dial?


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

I cannot find a setting to disable the dial completely.

You could set the three slots for the front command dial like this (Menu > Wrench (Set Up) > Button/Dial Setting > Command Dial Setting):
Slot 1 Aperture
Slot 2 None
Slot 3 None

Then switch to Slot 2 or Slot 3 using the setFn button (setFn default is the button in the viewfinder mode lever on the front) press and hold it, then select Slot 2 or 3.

(FWIW I am using an X-Pro3 to work this out).

I hope this helps.

Thank you both! I went to "Menu > Set Up > Button/Dial Setting", and just turned "S.S. Operation" off. I forgot to mention that I got X-Pro2, sorry for that.

(Under "Command Dial Setting", I've got only two options, "S.S. F" and "F S.S.", no slots or whatsoever.)

It was happening that when I set up manual shutter speed and turn the camera from landscape to portrait orientation and vice versa, that I accidentally move that front command dial with my finger without noticing it and that shutter speed changes without me being aware of it. It was really disturbing. Now I feel a relief. Too many buttons and dials on this camera, just too many, it is a pain to hold it.

    • Hello friend! Recently, xt4 has encountered a problem. When the handle is turned up and turned on, you will hear a clicking sound. I thought it was a problem, but it seems that other people's xt4 is the same. I want to ask is this normal?
    • I'm surprised as well - I have that lens currently on the X-H2S and there is no obvious play.
    • Hi GO I am comparing it to all my FujiFilm bodies and the other marque in my (as my beloved would put it) 'too many cameras' fleet. Ken stated that the IQ was 'muddy' compared to the X-T4 and having tested it alongside my X-T4 and X-S10 (and for fairness sake my X-H1 and X-T3) I can find absolutely no difference in IQ between the newest bodies (X-T4/X-S10) which are marginally better than the older ones (X-T3/X-H1/X-Pro2) if you really start down the IQ pixel-peeping route. Its not a route I go down. I have been more than happy with the IQ of the X-T4 and X-S10 but the subject aquisition and focus success rate of the X-H2S takes it to a different level above both of those super cameras and that is/was the rationale for buying it. As well as the phenominal speed and buffering and stacked sensor. That's on the FujiFilm 'compared to what' side. If I then compare the X-H2S with my Sony A7 iv (my only full frame camera) I would say that the Sony is marginally better on focus speed, tracking and (pixel peeping) detail but, as I have more FujiFilm lenses and prefer the tactile feel of the Fuji's over the more clinical Sony, I am more than satisfied with the X-H2S. Each to their own! His point that the IQ was no better or worse than previous much less expensive models was an irrelevance to me as I wasn't after a quantum leap in IQ (I am more than satisfied), I just wanted a much better focus and aquisition rate which I now have with the cracking X-H2S. I like Ken and his thoughts on FujiFilm lenses just about mirror mine though I confess to not owning/using as many as him. But of those that I do own, they feature in his 'top-5'. I even prefer my 16-80mm over the bag of primes 16-55mm! Whilst I do find his reviews very refreshing and interesting/different, I find Maarten Heilbronn, Andy Mumford and the Hybrid Shooter offer a more balanced viewpoint coupled with actual photo examples which I,  as a simple retired soldier, can relate to and form an opinion/judgement on. Unless I have missed them, I cannot recall ever seeing any actual examples taken by Ken to prove beyond all reasonable doubt, the contentious and (sometimes) contemptious and dismissive views he holds. Again whilst I respect his views, I reserve the right to disagree with them and in the case of the FujiFilm X-H2S, I clearly do! I hope that answers your point on the 'compared to what'. Kind regards Pat
