Fujifilm exposure shifts

What exposure shift? I just tried my 16-80 and my 70-300 on a large white card, so that the metered scene did not change with the zoom. I also used a fixed manual focus distance as exposure may vary slightly with focus distance due to the extra extension - that's normal for any lens. The 70-300 is a variable aperture lens so with apertures wider than f5.6 the exposure will vary. I tried it at f5.6. neither lens shows any exposure variation.

Constant aperture lenses are the best you will find when trying to use lenses built for stills photography in a video / movie setting.

If you want to use lenses built for video / movie setting, try these:

Or go with some of the third party cine lenses. One quick way to know you are looking in the right place, is when the specs list t-stops instead of f-stops.

The f-stop is not changing, which is the ratio stays the same. Constant aperture is really constant f-ratio., which means effective or virtual ratio. A truly manual constant aperture lens operates differently than by-the-wire lenses, which is why the older ones are so large, they have to maintain that ratio over their range. Newer lenses do it differently which is why they are referred to as having virtual constant ratios.

Btw, that Canon approach is pretty limited. Try that trick on a wterfall and you will see the waterfall change from falling water to shaving cream.

    • Hi Jerry, thanks so much; I already downloaded Rawtherapee v5.8. But as I am using Mac OS 12.6, probably there is some issue. There is an instruction in their website  '  Drag sh into the “Full Disk Access” pane under the “Privacy” tab in the “Security & Privacy” control panel in “Apple menu” > “System Preferences”. I tried to do but couldn't do it. So I didnt have the access to the photo folder. I already had other raw converter. Are all the data in TIFF kept as same as RAF? then I can edit it in darktable or Lightroom ( I have older version in my different laptop). 
    • My Fujifilm x100v resets the date to january 8 2000  it happens about twice a year. my personal settings rest unaffected.  I use firmware 2.13 is there a solution to this very annoying problem(bug)?    
    • Hey Guys, I am stumped. I am trying to use the Movie setting on my X-T200. I push the camera through an Elgato Cam Link so that my PC can use it. I am currently running into a problem that I turn off the Face/Eye Detection however it will still show the green box and white eye box. I still wish to use the auto focus but I do not need the Boxes present. Does anyone know a fix? Or is there a better setting I can use to allow auto-focus but remove said boxes. I am still new to cameras and do not want to go out and buy a brand new one.   Thanks.
    • Okay a quick follow up to my own post; I tried re installing the firmware on my camera, and the issue seems to have gone away (I had the latest on the camera already, but I re downloaded it and re installed it overwriting the old installation via the instructions on Fujis website). My guess is that maybe the firmware got corrupted during or sometime after my previous install. I will keep tabs on it if it starts doing it again.
    • You might give RawTherapee a try: https://rawtherapee.com Or, if you are using macOS or Windows, Fujifilm has a raw converter based on SilkyPix: https://fujifilm-x.com/en-us/products/software/raw-file-converter-ex-powered-by-silkypix/ It give you some options for basic editing and touch-up for your images that you can then export as a tiff and finish in GIMP or your favorite image editor, or as jpg if that is enough.
