Set aperture manually

Recommended Posts

This is an interesting question - I thought it must be in the camera manual - but it isn't (presumably all the available lenses had aperture rings when the manual was written).

The lens manuals have a link that supposedly goes to the answer - but the link doesn't go to the answer.

The FAQs for the X-Pro1 tell you how to do it for the X-T30.

This is the closest I've found - but its badly written and the applicable footnote (*3) doesn't exist.

Just a hunch here, as maybe an extension to Greybeard's thoughts.

Fujifilm does a good job integrating their product line. They tend to keep compatibility current between older-to-newer products through firmware updates, but they don't always do so very explicitly.

Which leads me to wonder... what firmware version do you have in your camera and lens? Are they both up to date?

I read through the X-Pro1 firmware update history, but saw no mention of adding the aperture adjustment to accommodate ringless lenses, but I can't imagine this as an oversight. Surely someone tried to use an XCxx lens on an X-Pro1 before now.

    • Great way to start!
    • Very rare, but lens is WR and Red Badge so it should not happen with brand new lens. Maybe i'll try send it to Fuji service center. I had similar problem with new x-h2s which had a smudge visible on photos even on very wide apertures and send it to fuji becasue blowing and cleaning by swabs not helped. They change filter on the sensor under warranty and now everything is ok.
    • I have read so much thru the months (years?) re: sharpening fuji files (XTrans sensor) and everyone seems to have an answer.   Here are some questions/comments for clarification: 1. If one is printing, does the issue of Fuji file sharpening in LR go away?  I know there is some basic sharpening etc. I heard that the sharpening issue is more for the website or posting.  2. If I use enhance and it creates a DNG file, the issue of 'worms' is a moot point, correct?  the file is no longer an Xtrans file. 3. Is it better to sharpen in PS versus LR? 4. Here Is MY LATEST APPROACH to SHARPENIING for a website.  Use enhance and it creates a DNG file.  Go to DETAIL in LR.   Bring detail to 0 or way down from default 25 ( some say this is where the oversharpening occurs) Change Radius from .5-1.0 Mask:  Some say approx 30%.  others say 80%  Amount of sharpening:  Anywhere from 30% on up??  This is also confusing.  It would be great to get clarification from Fuji - it creates a lot of confusion. I want to stick with Lightroom.       
    • Hi, this is my first post here I've created an online catalog and hope you enjoy it. All pictures taken with my X-T3 and a XF 80 lens: https://mount-sushi.com/netsuke/gallery/index.html Suggestions for improvement etc. are welcome. I'm not a professional photographer, and these sculptures are really small ... Thank you.
    • Hi Friends - I have been using Fuji XT2 since 2017. Only recently, the Fujifilm Camera Remote app for android is causing a problem. Every time I connect the Camera Remote app to my XT2, the picture format shifts to square format. Now, we know, there is no setting to change the picture format in the Camera Remote app. I am unable to use the Camera Remote app, as square is not a format I need to shoot in. Any suggestions will be of great help! Some information: I am using One Plus phone, and the version of my Camera Remote app is 4.6.1 (build
