Exposure Bracketing issues


Recommended Posts

My first and 2nd attempts at AEB3 with an XT4 to be a complete failure, not seeing what the problem is.

I did some evening twilight real estate shots on tripod, in about 40% of the bracketed shots the +2 shot was blurry, even though the 0 & -2 shots were in focus. Also even though the iso was set to 200 the noise level in all the shots is way more than I would expect. Any thoughts? Typical settings for the 0 shot was 1/3rd, f8, iso 200, on tripod w a 2 second self timer.

Do you have the exposure bracketing set to use burst mode, see:


rather than one at a time mode?

Even on a tripod with shock absorbers built into the legs, at ⅓ second exposure times, any slight vibration can work its way up the tripod and affect the image. A tiny footstep can ruin an image. And uh, yes, raising the center column can make it worse. At least, that is the myth.

Using burst mode reduces the opportunity time for footsteps, passing vehicles, etc. to affect things.

Your X-T4 has very low read noise at ISO 200, you can look at the https://photonstophotos.net/Charts/RN_ADU.htm

and see where the results. Can you post samples showing the noise? One with the mechanical shutter and one with only the electronic shutter using the same settings as what you posted in your message? This one way to check you do not have any stuck or hot pixels.

    • Hi All My XT5 tells me that my newly formatted 64gb card has a capacity of 183 photos, which is much less than it had previously.  It also tells me that by 32gb card has the same capacity which sounds about right.  When I put the cards in my XT20 however the capacity of the 64 gb card is double that of the smaller one which is what I'd expect.   Daft laddie question - why?  Is it me? Thanks Ian 
    • Congratulations on your new camera ! I wish you that you may enjoy it for a long time. 
    • It sounds ilke you have the drive dial set to Multiple Exposures, the one next to Adv2. Turn the dial back to S or CL or CH and the camera should go back to the way you are used to it behaving. p.s. Welcome to the forum.
    • My Charcoal X-T50 arrived today and here are my first impressions:  It's small. If you take away the flash dome it's the same size as my Leica D-Lux7. Its small size requires me to learn to grip it differently than my other Fujis especially my X-H2s. It's heavier than I thought it would be and feels heavier than my X-T1. I love, love, love the film sim dial and have programmed the C-1-3 with other Fuji sims that aren't designated on the dial. IMHO it's a beautiful camera that is laid out similarly to my other Fujis although the tiny joy stick will take some getting used to. I also love, love, love the digital 1.4 and 2 TC and have programed the back dial to initiate them. On one side of the viewfinder is the diopter control and on the other side is a programmable button that I didn't notice until programming the buttons showed it but it is a cool feature although difficult to get to if you are holding the camera to your eye. Things I don't like: It came with an uncharged battery. I've never gotten a new Fuji with a dead battery until this one. Fortunately I've got several of the 126s batteries that are charged. No hot shoe cover. I know this is supposed to be a budget X-T5 but come on Fuji a matching hot shoe cover doesn't cost that much. No manual. I know manuals are a cost cutback for camera companies and I've downloaded one from the Fuji site but for $1399 it should be included. These are first out of the box impressions and I have not shot with it yet or processed any images and will post some when I do.   
    • Well I just got back from a trip to drumheller and noticed that the lens seems to vignette quite severely. Is this normal for the lens, or is it an issue? I can correct it manually in capture one but I'd rather not have to for every photo
