Preview exposure on Fuji XT3 (firmware 5.01)


Recommended Posts


How do I preview the exposure (i.e. an approximation of the final image) on XT3 when working in a non-manual mode?

This can be done in manual mode by setting

  1. "Preview Exp/Wb in Manual Mode" to EXP/WB and
  2. "Natural Live View" to OFF

but this does not affect modes that are not manual, for example, shutter priority mode or when I want to control ISO and shutter speed manually.

A common suggestion that I found online was to set "Preview Exp/Wb in Manual Mode" to ON. However, this option is not available on my camera. The only options under "Preview Exp/Wb in Manual Mode" to EXP/WB" are EXP/WB, WB and Off.

Without this, the images may turn out to be slightly under or over exposed. In shutter priority, it may become difficult to see the effect of a long exposure.

I have been stuck on this for the entire day. Any help and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    • I can recommend PhotoMechanic (Pro?) for culling and tagging and rating.

    • Hi all. After a long break from photography I've decided to get back into it and am about to purchase a Fuji X-E2 body (which I deem more than adequate for my needs at this point).    I had previously shot Canon but could never really afford decent glass for it. But I see times have changed and not only do Fuji seem to have some reasonably priced XF lenses, there are a number of recommended 3rd party manufacturers in the game.   I am still very much on a budget but don't need much for my particular interests. Thinking a 10-12mm, a 23-27mm and a 35mm should meet my needs (mainly street with some landscapes) and perhaps a 50mm or 60-100mm later. I'm only interested in prime lenses and reckon it comes down to a decision over whether I want AF or not.   Been looking at the Fujinon f1.4s which tick the boxes but will take me a long time to purchase given my financial situation. Happy to take it slow though if that's the general concensus (would be happier with one very good lens than three average).   The other option is the MF offerings from 7artisans, TTartisans and the like. I could pick up a few with very wide apertures (up to 0.95) very affordably. But I'm interested in the opinions of those who have used and compared them both (Fuji and non-Fuji). I don't have any natural objection to MF as I used it way back for film, but I haven't shot a mirrorless digital with a manual lens and never used zoom focusing, focus peaking etc. From what I've seen it's pretty quick and straightforward if slightly slower than AF. I must admit that the AF on my old canon DSLR used to annoy the hell out of me with the incessant hunting for focus and noise. But that was a long time ago and I'm guessing things have changed (these were also very much lower end Canon lenses).   I've had a search already, but if anyone would mind offering their opinions based on experience I'd be very grateful.   Many thanks...
    • I had this problem. I toggled between the two image disp options (full screen/small window) for OVF in the menu, and now it works again.
