SOLVED: I feel like a silly goose but I'll leave this here for anybody who finds this helpful. Originally posted this query because what I saw through the optical viewfinder was LARGER than the picture that is actually taken. This is just how the OVF in this camera works: it's bigger than what's actually seen by its lens. Never personally encountered this before in a camera. No, you cannot disable this behavior.
Hi all, I'm new to this forum and just purchased a used X100F (an upgrade for me... I've spent time behind a Nikon film camera and an older model of Fujifilm X. I spend most of my time taking pictures of flowers).
I've been struggling with one particular feature, not knowing how to disable it, not knowing what it's called in the menu system: When I look through the OVF and press shutter lightly to autofocus, sometimes the frame lines contract pretty small. It's like there's a "smart auto-crop" deciding how to frame my photo. But I want to be able to decide that for myself. This only happens when my eye is to the OVF; it doesn't happen on the LCD screen.
Can I turn this feature off? Or is this permanent, in OVF? Or is my camera malfunctioning? (bought it used...dual viewfinder is out-of-order, for one) More context: I am not using a teleconverter. I'm not using zoom. I've been perusing reviews, forums, the user manual... nothing sounds like what I'm describing.
Does anyone know what this is called and whether I can disable this feature? Thank you in advance!
Any hint how to turn on framing guideline and horizon level in OVF?
I selected them in setting Screen Setup/DISP. Custom Setting/OVF
In framing guideline I selected grid 9.
Checking OVF and neither framing guideline nor horizon level is displayed.
Am I missing anything?

I’m currently taking photographs of my paintings. When I look in the viewfinder there is a white color or white filter that I don’t know how to get rid of. It’s there in all 3 shooting modes. But it’s not on the rear LCD screen. I’ve uploaded a video to illustrate. I tried reset of shooting menu- no change. ND filter off. Macro off. Any thoughts?
Is there a startup time difference between OVF and EVF on the XPRO3? I have the XT3 and wonder if there's a noticable difference between startup times between XT3 EVF and XPRO3 OVF.
Fujifilm website says XPRO3 startup is 0.4s vs XT3 0.3s but wondering about real-world experience and if there's a timing benefit to OVF.
When I import my jpeg+raw images into Lightroom Classic 10.3 all my photos come in with the simulation. For example, if I use the B&W simulation then all photos come in B&W including the raw files. How can I import my files so the jpeg has the simulation and raw is in color?
I've been photographing polo on a bright sunny day, with my X-T3/100-400mm lens. The camera is set to 1/1000 @f5.6 auto ISO. Focus mode is AF-C zone at 9 point square. I also used single point focus with nine points. I was consistently getting soft blurry pictures which was very frustrating. I'm an experienced sports photographer and have never had a problem like this before. Then I remembered reading a recommendation to use a shutter mode of EF+M, where I had been using MS, a full manual shutter. So for the polo shots I was initially using EF+M. I switched back to MS and my hit rate increased dramatically. As anyone else experienced this issue or have any recommendations please?
Same issue. I will grind/cut one end of the plate to shorten it.
