Self-timer changing autofocus continuous to autofocus single


Colinm7

Recommended Posts

So I am new here and I am basically tryng to take self portraits. The best way I figured would be af-c and face recognition on.  So messed around with a photograph in front of me containing a face and all good, the focus box was following the eyes of the person in the photo.

However, I noticed that when you put the self-timer on once you press focus  it seems to lock in and doesn;t track meaning whenever I tried to take a self portrait absolutely none of me is in focus, I am just a big blur. I have an xt30 and any help would be greatly appreciated

    • @HC-110 Yes, disappointing, right. I've sort of given up - I'll never buy Fuji again. I tried interjecting on their social media ads, living comments imploring them to fix what they deliberately changed/broke. But not a word in response.  Something changed at Fuji and it does not benefit the user. -on to other worries.   John
    • Take the Fuji and save some budget. But keep in mind the Fuji has an APC-C sensor, so the effective focal length you get is about 42mm.
    • How do I lock X-E1 exposure in video mode? It's stuck on auto, and the only thing it can be adjusting is ISO, as the shutter is locked at 24fps, and I'm using a vintage Nikon lens - so manual f-stop. I know its not designed to shoot video, but I find it hard to believe a camera of this quality that offers video at full HD 24fps, would not allow an exposure lock function. Without exposure control, the video mode is useless. 
    • I want to share some thoughts with you in order to help me choose the right camera.  I sold almost my photographic equipment and I kept only 2 cameras.  Ricoh GRII and Fujifilm XT5 and some lenses ( 10-24/4 & 35/2 & 56/1,2 & 16-80/4)  My project for the next years is to visit cities and countries around the world and taking street photography and some landscape photography and publish some books with these photos.  Street photography is 80% of my photos now. The rest is landscape photography. Here some key points I want to take only one camera and one lens. No big cameras, no lenses, no bags anymore. I like to be more minimalist in my philosophy to take photos and in my life generally.  I shot 95% Jpeg not RAW. I know the benefits of RAW in editing, dynamic range etc but all cameras has anymore very good jpeg. And it’s ok for me. If a camera has RAW and JPEG I choose this option and keep RAW for the future when I print the books. Then I will edit my final photos for the printing. I I like 28mm not 35mm I sold my Canon and Fujis and I have 8.000$ in stock. For my new camera and for my first trips.  I read many reviews and I decided to buy one of these 2 cameras for my basic camera.  Leica Q3  Or  Fuji X100 VI with 28mm lens  Would you like please to send me your opinion about this dilemma? Which you would prefer Leica Q3 or Fuji X100VI and why?  Thank you  Greg Plat. 
    • I currently have my GFX100s camera in to the Fuji repair shop in Canada but I hear they redirect everything to a central North American one in the US.  (Which might explain part of why there is a delay in getting a diagnostic.). The answer so far is that they want to charge me $400 to do a "more advanced" pixel mapping than is available on the firmware mapping.  If that doesn't work then they recommend a sensor replacement but have not quoted that price yet. I have liked everything about the GFX100s (almost everything) until this started getting worse.  I usually only see it in portrait work when I'm working in more moody, low key setting - which unfortunately is a style I like to work on.  I can see the problem going back to six months after I bought the camera but it was not as strong and I treated it as typical bad pixel mapping.  Except that was only a temporary fix. I'm also reluctant to replace the sensor since the last one barely made it a year.
