GFX 100s unable to turn off 24 hour time format


Recommended Posts

In setting the time, after upgrading my GFX 100S to firmware 2.01, I cannot display time in 12 hour format (with "am" and "pm"), only in 24hr format. Am I missing something; is it possible to change it?

Thanks,

Eli

On my 100S V2.01 firmware this is no problem it shows 24/am-pm above and I can choose which I prefer. For me it is always military time, I make far less mistakes that way.

By the way, the AM/PM does not show until I have cursored through the date and time to be on the 24H, then you can just simply choose AM/PM and accept. Screen shot shows that on mine that works after the firmware update.

I am totally baffled... I don't get the AM/PM option, only the 24H, and the cursor doesn't reach the 24H field. Not that it's a big deal... when I import, the time preferences in the editor shows up correctly... I am just stumped.

Thanks

I am stumped as well! Do you have daylight GMT + 1:00 set or different, perhaps change that and see what gives.

An update: I decided to give this another try. I toggled between the “airplane” and “home” icons in the +/- GMT and “daylight savings” offset, then I stepped through the different month/day/year format settings, and suddenly the “24 hr” versus the “am/pm” time formats became available and I was able to choose. It must be a bug in the firmware. 

Now all is good and I can sleep better.

    • Just got a new XT-5 which I upgraded to from the x100v. Have also used XT-3 and xPro-3, so am fairly familiar with the X series. The XT-5 is very nice… and a little perplexing. I turn off the face detection setting as well as interlock spot AE & focusing area because I don’t want to use those features. I turn the camera off, turn it back on, and, lo and behold, both those features are back on. Gremlins? Latest firmware up grade? I am at a loss. My BW film recipe has the two features turned off when I scroll through them on my Q saved menu items.  Any insight is appreciated and thanks.
    • I believe the only way to do this with the X100S is to switch the autofocus button to MF and use the AFL/AEL button. The X100S doesn't have the option for back button focus in AF mode like more recent X series camera models.
    • I don't think its possible - you could do the opposite (keep it on) with some tape - but not sure there is a way to keep it off (although like Jerryy says - it would certainly chew through the battery even if you could)
    • Hello...Could anyone explain, simply, how to set up back button focus on my X100S please..... Just when I think I've got it...it falls down! many thanks Terry
    • Okay, I will ask, how are you able to look at both of them at the same time? Keeping both on at the same time is a battery killer, these two electronic displays are movie camera televisions (monitors) to put it in a different view 😀, keeping them running constantly (continually updating) takes a lot of juice that then cannot be used to get more images. When you use options two or three, the eye sensor is “off”. A simple button push to swap between the two options when you need to use one over the other is fairly easy to do.
