Selecting a Mount Adaptor Setting (1-6 on Fuji X-S10)


Recommended Posts

I have just purchased a Samyang MF 100mm Macro F2.8 Lens for use on my X-S10.

As it is not an adapted lens I assume I am in the correct forum for this question.

On the X-S10 I can set the focal length and lens name in the Mount Adaptor Settings section of the menu so that the lens is shown in the Exif data.

What I cannot discover is how to select between the 6 lens options whenever I attach this lens.

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks, Dave.

What happens when you try the following? :

Attach your manual third party lens, turn the camera on and go into the shooting setting menu to the mount adapter setting. Scroll through the menu choices and leave one of the lens highlighted. Half press the shutter butter or fully press the shutter button. Go back into menus and see what is listed, maybe choose a different lens and repeat the process. If you fully press the shutter button each time, what value does the embedded EXIF information contain?

Thanks for your help Jerryy, the lens was delivered today and I have found that attaching the lens to the X-S10 automatically selects the first lens setting in the Adaptor Settings (I had set this setting to 100mm with a suitable lens name). The EXIF data is updated accordingly. I will experiment with your suggestions but it seems strange that there is not a section of the manual that explains switching between lenses. I may email Fuji for the answer.

I must admit I am pleased with the lens and the way it works on the X-S10. I just need to get used to getting the point of focus exactly where I want it, a few more days of use should do it.

Thanks again, Dave.

As requested here are some of the first images I took with the Samyang f2.8 100mm macro lens.

These are all jpegs straight out of camera (no processing) and hand held. I used iso800 to get a reasonable speed but the IBIS made a big difference.
I have to say my main problem is the limited depth of field and focussing hand held is difficult.

Using the MF assist I have experimented using Focus peak highlighting and Digital microprism. I have found the latter to be more useful when very close.

The toadstools are appx. 2cm diameter.
The lilly flower (DSCF9402) is appx. 5cm diam.
The Salvia flower (DSCF9439) is appx. 1cm diam.

Thanks for your interest jerryy.

    • As @Greybeard wrote, there is more going on than just saving a changed setting. Even if it were only that, it would still be tricky. Different settings take up different size spaces in the file. Trying to overwrite that can easily wreck the file. Early computer based EXIF editors would not do more than report settings for the raw files they would allow users to read. Your Velvia image file may take 2MB more storage than the Provia one, but changing from one to the other seamlessly would be difficult to pull off without a massive amount of processing. All while doing other camera stuff. RAF is vastly different in what it does than JPEG or TIFF or ...
    • I didn't know about that JPG. But for me it would be handy if the "RAW including that JPG" could be updated. I don't want to bother about editing photos on a computer. I just use the computer for archiving them and I "use" the photos on the tablet where I have my viewing archive. Just ideas. Digital photography could be so "easy" or "convenient" if all those things were possible. I want the pictures, good pictures. I don't want to bother with software. Sometimes it is a little detail which can make your experience so great, or which can spoil everything.
    • Yes I used that software years ago with an X100F, but  then it stopped working, because the new software no longer worked on my computer (32 vs 64 bit). At the moment I am a Linux user on a 10 year old machine. My most modern "computer" are my phone and tablet.
    • Its a little more than just the metadata - there is also a 13MP jpg stored in the RAF file - if the RAF file was to be updated I'd probably prefer another copy.
    • Have you tried using the Fujifilm X Raw Studio software on a computer? You can still use the camera for the actual conversion and it would solve most of your problems in naming and batch conversion.
