X-S10 viewfinder stabilization in “Shooting only” mode

Recommended Posts

I have an X-S10 camera and several lens, some with OIS such as the XF 150-600mm.
Regardless of the lens, when I choose IS Mode “Shooting only”, I never get a stabilized image in viewfinder, even if keep the shutter button half-pressed (but resulting photos do seem correctly stabilized). If I choose IS Mode “Continuous”, I do get a stabilized image in the viewfinder.
This behavior does not match what is explained in the fujifilm manuals or online guides such as https://fujifilm-x.com/en-gb/learning-centre/image-stabilization-explained
On the CONTINUOUS option, the OIS system is always active when the camera is on, whereas SHOOTING ONLY switches the system on when the shutter release is pressed halfway to focus. To maximise battery life, choose SHOOTING ONLY. This function also works for IBIS.
Can anyone confirm me if this is an issue?

Just found the explanation: when using “shooting only” modem, stabilization  is only activated when shutter button is half pressed when in AF-C mode. In AF-S mode, stabilization is activated only when button is full pressed.

This is actually described in the manual:

“ (…) image stabilization is performed only when the shutter button is pressed halfway (focus mode C only) or the shutter is released.”

Other fujifilm online guides do not mention this nuance.

    • Something does not seem right. Uncompressed raw files for the X-T5 are supposed to be around 80MB, call it 85MB just to be safe in that assumption. 183 x 85MB = 15555MB, which is about 15.6GB. Even if you are using full sized, fine jpg along with the uncompressed raw files, you would not come close to filling a newly formatted 64GB card with 183 shots. Maybe try a new card?
    • Sometimes, issues like these can be complex and difficult to diagnose, especially if they're intermittent.
    • Agree with Jerryy..........I use the 70-300 A LOT and love it.  I have the 1.4 TC and I rarely use it, I find the lack of light to be limiting.  I recently bought the 150-600 Fuji lens and it is wonderful, super reach and super sharp.  A bit heavy to carry around so I still carry the 70-300 most of the time.  When I do take the 150-600 with me, I've been amazed with the results.
    • If your image frame numbers with the X-T5 are "99xx", my first thought is that your X-T5 is set for "Continuous" frame numbers and your card has run out of available numbers up to 9999. But, that your X-T20 is set to "Renew" Go to Settings > Save Data Setting > Frame No. and choose "Renew". Reformat the card.  Hope that helps.
    • Hi All My XT5 tells me that my newly formatted 64gb card has a capacity of 183 photos, which is much less than it had previously.  It also tells me that by 32gb card has the same capacity which sounds about right.  When I put the cards in my XT20 however the capacity of the 64 gb card is double that of the smaller one which is what I'd expect.   Daft laddie question - why?  Is it me? Thanks Ian
