Issues switching between OVF and EVF


Recommended Posts

HI,

 

Just recently the EVF on my xpro2 intermittently fails to replace the OVF when switching between the two (or when on "EVF + eye sensor"). What happens is that the OVF does not disappear and the EVF gets "overlaid" on top and I see two superimposed images, the optical and the electronic.

 

Has anyone had that problem before? I've tried all sorts of settings, switching on and off, but to no avail.

 

Many thanks for any advice / help!

Hi,

My XPro2 had to be sent back for repair under warranty and the problem did not re-appear afterwards. Am disappointed, though, that they did not fix the problem once and for all with the XPro3 :(

Hope this helps...

Thanks for the reply. I'll take mine in.

      Hello guys,
      Any hint how to turn on framing guideline and horizon level in OVF?
      I selected them in setting Screen Setup/DISP. Custom Setting/OVF
      In framing guideline I selected grid 9.
      Checking OVF and neither framing guideline nor horizon level is displayed.
      Am I missing anything?
       
      Regards,

      Is there a startup time difference between OVF and EVF on the XPRO3? I have the XT3 and wonder if there's a noticable difference between startup times between XT3 EVF and XPRO3 OVF. 
      Fujifilm website says XPRO3 startup is 0.4s vs XT3 0.3s but wondering about real-world experience and if there's a timing benefit to OVF.

      Got my xpro3 a little wet yesterday. Was wondering if this was common...

      Hi All,
      Does the digital teleconverter on the X100F work with the OVF engaged (or only with the EVF active?) AND does it change the view to show 50mm and 70mm?
      Thanks,
      Darren

      Hi all,
      First post here.
      Hope some Fuji users can help - any questions answered will be helpful - thanks in advance.
      I currently shoot with a Nikon D90 and 50mm prime for street photography. I really want to switch to Fuji. I went to check out the Fuji range and was initially considering the X-T20, X-T2, X-Pro 2. (All with 35mm F2)
      After putting the EVF to my eyes for a minute I felt kind of sea sick, Ive never looked through an EVF before. So I am left with OVF as the only option. This leaves the X100F and X-Pro 2 as my only options.
      1) I wear glasses - and found the viewfinder very small on the X-Pro 2, the OVF is also quite unusual to use. Does anyone else find it difficult to use (glasses wearers?) Is parallax an issue here?
      2) I see the X100F OVF seems much bigger and clearer, do users find this?
      3) Im concerned to buy an X100F as the fixed lens may be restrictive - I know it has crop modes, does the OVF adjust to the crop mode selected - or only the frame lines?
      4) Should I wait for X-Pro 3 before buying X-Pro 2? (either because X-Pro 2 prices may drop, or because they may improve the OVF on X-Pro 3?)
      5) I know they are different cameras - but would you get an X-Pro 2 over an X100F? I like the X-Pro 2 more aesthetically (doesn't mean its better in practice)
      Thanks,
      Darren

    • I can confirm this. My X100V had the same as do some of my other XF WR lenses. The fact that some lenses do and others don't (same lens) leads me to believe that Fuji has quite wide production tolerances. Over the past 7 years I've had (partly still have) 13 different XF lenses. 4 of them needed replacement due to production failures (loose aperture or focus rings, crooked mount...). Though I really like Fuji cameras, to me that is a bit too often...
    • It's quite a difference. As a basis the Leica Q2 already has a very good 47Mp full-frame sensor paired with one of the best lenses ever made (a 28mm Summilux). By leaving out the color array filter on the sensor and optimizing the sensor lenses for monochrome images, you get an incredibly sharp and contrast rich monochrome image. Without the color array filter you also boost the low light performance and expand the dynamic range of the sensor by approx. 2 stops. In the meanwhile, I couldn't resist and purchased a Q2 Monochrome. I'm not disappointed. Though my X-Pro produces very nice Acros files, the Q2 Monochrome is a different league (also in price to be fair). I usually shoot monochrome for my personal work, but to be able to shoot at ISO25000 and have files as clean as an X-Pro at ISO1600 is amazing. At normal ISO levels, the level of detail and the tonality of the Q2 files is stunning. Both for the jpegs out-of-camera and the DNG raw files via Capture One.
