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.

    • The difference only applies if you have set the camera to display the image after shooting (Screen Setting => Image Disp in the menu) - otherwise they behave the same. With Eye Sensor the image display option is shown in both evf and lcd (in other words you see the image you just shot in either the evf or lcd) - but with Eye Sensor + LCD Display that image is only shown in the lcd not the evf. The advantage of the second option is that you can use the evf and keep shooting without the delay for showing the image you just shot - but take your eye away from the evf and see that image in the lcd.
    • Options two and three essentially turn the eye sensor off, these are always-on settings for either of those two, but only one at a time. You can set it up to switch between them. If you read a bit further to the part about the set-up menu section, screen setup -> view mode setting, you have some options regarding the evf and lcd display modes. The first and last options seem the same, but I think if you try them you will see a difference.
    • Thanks jerryy, but this doesn't tell me how to turn the sensor off. From what I see from the various choices the first and last are identical in how they function.

    • Is there a way of turning the eye sensor OFF so that both EVF and LCD screen are ON, ALWAYS? There have been too many times while shooting with a tripod that when approaching the LCD screen to take a closer look at the screen the eye sensor detects my fat head and switches the LCD screen OFF. Quite annoying!  Thanks, Tom
