GFX50SII refuses complete manual focus


Recommended Posts

Hi! This is my first post in this forum and glad to search an answer for a (maybe) a niche quirk/issue. My GFX50SII has AF-ON button on, this means it wont focus with the shutter button, while camera is in MF Mode (with the back switch on right side on visor) if I press the AF-ON button once again, it will search for the focus where the AF-Point is. This is annoying specially for night/landscape photography. I´ve been looking that my panorama shots at night, just the middle photos (of the panorama) are defocused, maybe for the way I manipulate the camera. 

I find this annoying and start to search in the menu for AF assist menus (such as Rapid AF, Pre AF, AF+MF set off, Focus Check OFF, and any function related to this) and camera, besides be in MF Mode, it will search for focus whenever AF-ON button is pressed. 

Hope someone has experience with this issue. 

Thanks in advance. 

Alfred.

    • As @Greybeard wrote, there is more going on than just saving a changed setting. Even if it were only that, it would still be tricky. Different settings take up different size spaces in the file. Trying to overwrite that can easily wreck the file. Early computer based EXIF editors would not do more than report settings for the raw files they would allow users to read. Your Velvia image file may take 2MB more storage than the Provia one, but changing from one to the other seamlessly would be difficult to pull off without a massive amount of processing. All while doing other camera stuff. RAF is vastly different in what it does than JPEG or TIFF or ...
    • I didn't know about that JPG. But for me it would be handy if the "RAW including that JPG" could be updated. I don't want to bother about editing photos on a computer. I just use the computer for archiving them and I "use" the photos on the tablet where I have my viewing archive. Just ideas. Digital photography could be so "easy" or "convenient" if all those things were possible. I want the pictures, good pictures. I don't want to bother with software. Sometimes it is a little detail which can make your experience so great, or which can spoil everything.
    • Yes I used that software years ago with an X100F, but  then it stopped working, because the new software no longer worked on my computer (32 vs 64 bit). At the moment I am a Linux user on a 10 year old machine. My most modern "computer" are my phone and tablet.
    • Its a little more than just the metadata - there is also a 13MP jpg stored in the RAF file - if the RAF file was to be updated I'd probably prefer another copy.
    • Have you tried using the Fujifilm X Raw Studio software on a computer? You can still use the camera for the actual conversion and it would solve most of your problems in naming and batch conversion.
