Basic Setup


Recommended Posts

I'm finally switching to the new century after years of film shooting with my collection of Nikons.  I am still learning my new X-E3 and have one question.  Is it possible to set the camera up so that I see the ASA, Aperature , and shutter speed in my viewfinder.  I can find the F stop reading but not the shutter speed.  I'm used to a meter reading in y viewfinder the I can adjust easily.  Am I just to far behind the times to expect this.. I plan on shooting manual mode 90% of the time.  Thanks for any help and I apologize if this is seen as a stupid question.

Scroll down the page to the part about Disp. Custom Setting. You can decide what you want displayed in the evf or the back lcd. The DISP BACK button gives you the option of having that information on or off as you choose.

I listed the X-E3 manual based on you using that in your message, but if you really meant X-T3 (since the message ended up in the X-T3 forum), it still works the same way.

Some additional things to note:

ISO takes the place of ASA -- you can find some spirited discussions regarding how close the ISO number matches the ASA number you are used to.

The histogram replaces the light meter. That one will take some getting used to, this may help or hurt:


You also set up the type of metering your camera uses, spot, average, etc.

Ask questions as you come to them, there are lots of folks that can help.

    • That seemed to do the trick.  Any idea why that was the fix? I think some of the issues on most of these may be tied to the matching Jpeg being an Acros film simulation.  That still seems to be confusing ON1 as the colors occasionally is messed up unless I set the Jpeg and Raw to be treated separately.  Perhaps its a coincidence . 
    • Hmmm. Thanks for getting back. Next thing to try.  Quit ON1 Create a temp folder Use Finder (on Mac) or Explorer (Windows) to copy the image files that have the problem, to the temp folder Start ON1 and browse the copied files IF they wok, then from inside ON1, drag them to their original location and when prompted, select Replace Report back!
    • Hello evryone. Just this i ask my self last 48 hours. For example: my question are? Tracking are think tò use for muve subject. Ok But when i shot my be at 360 shutter Speed i see face subject focus and other in muvment. I m sure if i shot in AFS or AFC the picture Will be more Better. Zona or point Notting change to much. So when i Need use tracking?  I have think the Only situation can use Is when you not can muve the camera. Or when you want take a picture of a background and subject muve.  Becouse if i shot in AFS or AFC the photo look Better ...  What you think about? Thank you
    • Ok great. I’ll try the built in flash to ensure I’m on the right path then look to invest in an external flash.  I’ve heard about Godox so I’ll do some further research.  
    • Some images that have both a blank preview and also blank on edit had an on1 file but deleting it made no difference on some, on others the preview was still blank but a blurry image did appear when in edit mode.  Other blank ones had no corresponding file. I did notice in ON1 the "bad" files had partially blank EXIF info.  Also I would swear which are blank changes at times.
