Problem with multi exposure on XT5


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,
I've been wondering for several weeks, looking and looking and I can't find...
On my XT5 (with up-to-date software), when I go to "shooting setting" then "multi exposure", it is impossible for me to activate multi exposure. 
If I am in "adv.", the box is grayed out and it says "filter", if I am in "bkt" the box is grayed out and it says "bkt" etc. etc.
Can anyone tell me how to activate multi exposure? The solution should be obvious but I can't find it, either on my own or on the internet... Thank you, thank you, thank you!

@Greybeard You can shoot the images in RAW only. The original images are saved as RAW, and the resulting multiple exposure is a .JPG, even if you have the camera set for RAW only.

@joan11 . Not sure why you can't get multiple exposures. Might be a combination of various settings, or even a bug. I suggest you back up your settings, (using XApp on your mobile device, or XAquire on your computer) and then reset the camera. If that works, you can try restoring the settings you backed up. If that doesn't work, you'll need to tweak each setting one at a time and test after each tweak.

Good Luck!

Good to know - I was basing my suggestion on the X100VI where raw only isn't an option with multi-exposure

What GordW said. You have to put the drive mode dial to "S" - Single Frame. If you have it on CL, CH, BKT or Panorama (or HDR), the Multiple Exposure option will be greyed out in the shootng menu. On my X-T5 it works in RAW + JPG and also in JPG only. When Multiple Exposure is switched on, the image quality cannot be set to RAW only. If it was set to RAW only before switching Multiple Exposure On, image quality defaults to RAW+Fine. The result is JPG.

After each shot press MENU/OK and after the last one press DISP/BACK.

    • 92•F is 33•C and that is pretty damn hot where I come from. If the camera was on the whole time, maybe it could have reached the warning limit without actually having a fault. I don’t know. You did not say which country you are in, I presume USA. The number would be 1-800-800-3854.  https://fujifilm-x.com/en-us/repair-and-product-support/
    • I received my X-T50 two days ago.  I did not have time to take it out until this afternoon.  It is hot today, but not excessively so.  My car thermometer indicated 93 deg F, and the weather app on my phone said 92. I took 30 photos in a span of about 45 minutes.  The camera started feeling very warm and a warning appeared saying I was approaching the high temperature limit.  This would make sense if I were taking videos, but these were just still photos.  Does it seem strange to anyone else that the camera would reach such a high temp at 92-93 degrees ambient temperature?  I have another question. I was looking for a support phone number or email on the Fujifilm website but could not find one.  Does anyone know how to contact Fujifilm support to inquire about this high temperature condition?
    • 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.
