X-S10 custom setting: aperture


Recommended Posts

I just bought an X-S10 and after setting all the various options and began setting up the C1-C4 by saving those options by using "Save current settings". One result was that all four have a default aperture of what my lens was set at when I saved those current settings. I can change that easily enough, but still have a problem.

I shoot aperture priority and when I'm using a lens with an aperture ring, when I switch to C1-4, it ignores the custom aperture setting and uses the aperture rings setting. However, if the lens lacks aperture ring, the S10 ignores what the lens was set at and resets it to the custom setting aperture. So. if I'm shotting at C1 and adjust the lens aperture, then switch to C2, the aperture defaults to to the custom setting. Or if the camera times-out, when I turn it back on, the aperture has changed again.

I would like there to be no default aperture setting, so it uses whatever the lens was last set at. Is that possible?

I've determined it is not possible. Just a little annoyance.

It is definitely possible, maybe a little uncomfortable.

Choose Edit/Save Custom Setting on the third page of the Image Quality menu

Choose Edit/Check Setting

Click on the Custom Setting you want to change

The very first option you are given is to choose the Shooting Mode (that is where you can select Aperture Priority or Manual)

Don't forget to save your custom settings

    • 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.
    • Hello. If I shot in "Velvia", but decide later that "Provia" would have been better, why can't the camera switch the "Velvia" setting to "Provia" in the RAW file? It is just a setting within the RAW file. Overwriting the original parameters is easier for me because I don't have to bother with additional files on a computer. Just let me save those parameters. The image won't be altered, just the parameters used later by the converter to generate the image. For me that would make sense. I don't want to lose my time because I have to boot a computer where some software is running. It could be done within seconds in the camera.
    • I have owned several X100 models most recently the x100v and also the Leica Q2 and Q3.  In my opinion as a 20+ year enthusiast the comparison is apples and oranges.  Both systems have their strengths.  If you love the Fujifilm system or are mainly a jpeg shooter, the x100vi is the one to buy.  When I initially purchased the Q2, I quickly realized that this was intended for post processing.  The jpegs were acceptable but not as robust as Fuji.  The Q3 is solidly built with simple controls, tilt screen, an intuitive menu system, Summilux 28mm lens, 61 megapixels, weatherproof, IBIS, improved low light performance and dynamic range.  If the Q3 is within you budget, my suggestion would be to try (or purchase)  both and decide what fits your needs and style.  
    • 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.
