Photos Recording Brighter Than Previewed With Manual Shutter


Recommended Posts

Hello.

I'm shooting on an XH1. When Setting the shutter dial to "A," the recorded photo is the same brightness as the exposure preview version, but when selecting a shutter speed on the dial manually, or using the "T" setting to select a speed, the recorded photo is brighter than the image preview.

This is most noticeable on the 56 1.2, followed by the 23 1.4. It's less noticeable on the 16 1.4, and not at all on the 50-140 2.8.

Has anyone else run into this, and were you able to correct it?

The closest workaround I've found is setting the shutter dial to "A," and then pressing the AE-L button when the exposure is close to what I want, and then composing the remainder of the photo with that locked in.

Thanks for any insight.

God bless!

    • Your last point does not make a lot of sense. It is similar to saying ‘take a raw file, run it through LightRoom or whichever raw convertor you are using to find a neat version but then overwrite the saved parameters in the original raw file instead of saving the new version as a separate image.’ Raw files store the image as shot. Using what you are suggesting, if someone needs to go back to the original ‘as shot’ image, it would be impossible.
    • I am primarily a JPG shooter, but store RAW's in parallel just for the case when I need them. In camera conversion is interesting and as I don't use RAW converters or studios, it is interesting for me to tweak individual images. I was used to do so on my X-E1 and X-T1. It was cumbersome but working. I was very confident that more features would be available on the X-T5 but NO. The in-camera RAW conversion would be perfect for me if Fuji would implement the following features (but they didn't do so in the last 10 years, so these upgrades will probably never come): The generated JPG should have the same filename as the original image + a numbered addition to the original filename. If my original file is DSCF3005.RAF/JPG and if in the evening, after a day of shooting I tweak that image in the camera, I want that one to be named DSCF3005-2.JPG, or DSCF3005-A.JPG. It is absolute nonsense to name that image DSCF3356.JPG, just because it was generated after the last shot DSCF3357.RAF/JPG. In my file archive, on the computer I can then keep or just delete the original JPG. As it is now, I have a complete chaos when generating JPG's on the camera. There is no possibility of a batch conversion ... . Why isn't it possible to define settings, and then to let the camera do the conversion on a selection of files? Or why can't I select predefined settings when I am in a conversion menu? If I want to change the parameters of 6 photos, I have to make all the settings 6-times inside the converter. And there is no possibility to save the changes in the original RAF-file. WHY? I can revert to the original parameters, when playing in the converter but I cannot save the changed parameters. Complete nonsense. And we are in 2024 ... . Again, some missing features.   
    • I have an unusual issue with my Xt2. It will focus in any mode with all my Fuji lenses except the 35 1.4. I can’t get any focus response at all with that lens fitted, manual, single or continuous. The 35 1.4 works flawlessly with my xpro2, xe3 and Xh1. its got me completely bamboozled. Can anyone offer a solution please?

    • The firmware update helped me, seems to be better.  AF is not great at picking up moving birds in the sky, especially bright blue sky and a single bird, hit or miss, but otherwise OK.  Low light is a different story.
