AF after firmware update


Recommended Posts

Hi all - I recently tried to like an X-T5 and in fact did very much, but ended up returning it because I could NOT get the continuous/eye/face AF to work at all. I had a nearly 0% hit rate, with images usually focusing several inches in-front of or behind the subject, despite confirmation from the little green box in the viewfinder. Manual focus was also a mess for anything that moves, without quite enough EVF resolution for me and some motor jumping in the lenses with non-linear motors. 

Anyone tried the AF with the new firmware, and if so do you see real improvements?

I tried and it works for me. I suppose you enabled eye traking already.

what is the AF preset you are using?



Yes, tried eye AF with all the various settings I could think of. Consistently got green box confirmation in the viewfinder, but the photos were not actually focused on the eye, ever. 

I no longer have the camera, because of that.

I think that you must have had a faulty camera.The eye detection on my x-t5 is very impressive.

Thanks for the input. Maybe I'll have to rent one to try again.

    • I was laying in bed and heard a hooting outside my window and was able to get a shot of this guy.  The conditions were terrible, 1am, overcast and starting to rain so it was extremally dark.  400mm, ISO 12800, f5.6 SS 1.5s and heavily processed.  All I could make out was a dark shadow in the branches once my eyes adjusted.  The wind was also picking up so I couldn't lower the shutter speed anymore to drop the ISO.   I had to use manual focus and kept firing off shots slowing adjusting the focus each time time until it seemed in focus.  The photo is is obviously horrible but it's fun finally having some reach and very cool this owl showed up just after getting the lens.  I think I'm going to have to build some owl boxes and put them up around the property. I also need to learn to navigate through the settings in the dark.

    • Have you done all of these: - Set the Drive dial on top of the camera to Bracketing (BKT) - In the Shooting Menu => Drive Setting => Bkt Setting => Choose the three film simulations you want to use and (most important) - In the Shooting Menu => Drive Setting => Bkt Setting => Bkt Select : Choose Film Simulation  
    • You have Clarity in the Image Quality menu set to something other than zero
    • I use back button focusing on X-T5 but only lock AF using Switch option. I have set both AF ON and AEL buttons to AF ON because I kept pressing the wrong button accidentally and I let the camera take care of AE Lock when shutter half-pressed. BTW I think Fujifilm could do also do a better job of locating the other Fn buttons particularly the one next to the shutter button as it is really difficult to get to. I;d prefer them all in a vertical line on the front so can easily feel which one I'm pressing!
    • Can anyone provide me with the answer. I am new to fujifilm camera.  I am using the XT4 and in single shot mode, everytime, I take a shot, the Lcd screen will display "storing" and I have to wait for the message to disappear before I can take the next shot! Is there a way to turn this off.
