Have just become the proud owner of the 100T and have to say what a great manual you get with this camera - hence this post.

 

With my X-Pro 1 - I had the option to include the 'grid overlay' in the viewer - but can;t seem to find an option in themanual or menu settings.

Am I to assume that this feature has been removed on this camera?

 

I used this feature for horizon levelling as well as 'framing scenes' - knowing when a shot needed to be captured according to the rule of thirds and when it was best to throw the rule out of the window.

 

Just - why do Fuji make such great cameras and such pitiful manuals to explain the various menus and features?

I'm pretty sure its still there somewhere.  I don't use it on mine, but I think I remember seeing it as an option.  There is also the auto-level line that turns green when you get the camera leveled out, either horizontal or vertical that you can display also.  I use that all the time.

 

I'm away from my camera right now, but there is a "custom display settings" section.  I always get it confused with the custom settings for the C1, C2, etc profiles of all your jpg and iso etc settings, so the name is similar.

 

In the display section, you can set up the OVF and then the EVF/LCD separately.  I will check when I get home tonight and update if needed.

Ok, so found it in a version of the manual at least.  That's half the battle!  :P

It's called Framing Guidlines, and you have a couple options as to how many lines you get.

 

I'm pretty sure the main menu heading isn't called "Screen Settings" but I can't for the life of me remember what it actually is.

    • I'm surprised as well - I have that lens currently on the X-H2S and there is no obvious play.
    • Hi GO I am comparing it to all my FujiFilm bodies and the other marque in my (as my beloved would put it) 'too many cameras' fleet. Ken stated that the IQ was 'muddy' compared to the X-T4 and having tested it alongside my X-T4 and X-S10 (and for fairness sake my X-H1 and X-T3) I can find absolutely no difference in IQ between the newest bodies (X-T4/X-S10) which are marginally better than the older ones (X-T3/X-H1/X-Pro2) if you really start down the IQ pixel-peeping route. Its not a route I go down. I have been more than happy with the IQ of the X-T4 and X-S10 but the subject aquisition and focus success rate of the X-H2S takes it to a different level above both of those super cameras and that is/was the rationale for buying it. As well as the phenominal speed and buffering and stacked sensor. That's on the FujiFilm 'compared to what' side. If I then compare the X-H2S with my Sony A7 iv (my only full frame camera) I would say that the Sony is marginally better on focus speed, tracking and (pixel peeping) detail but, as I have more FujiFilm lenses and prefer the tactile feel of the Fuji's over the more clinical Sony, I am more than satisfied with the X-H2S. Each to their own! His point that the IQ was no better or worse than previous much less expensive models was an irrelevance to me as I wasn't after a quantum leap in IQ (I am more than satisfied), I just wanted a much better focus and aquisition rate which I now have with the cracking X-H2S. I like Ken and his thoughts on FujiFilm lenses just about mirror mine though I confess to not owning/using as many as him. But of those that I do own, they feature in his 'top-5'. I even prefer my 16-80mm over the bag of primes 16-55mm! Whilst I do find his reviews very refreshing and interesting/different, I find Maarten Heilbronn, Andy Mumford and the Hybrid Shooter offer a more balanced viewpoint coupled with actual photo examples which I,  as a simple retired soldier, can relate to and form an opinion/judgement on. Unless I have missed them, I cannot recall ever seeing any actual examples taken by Ken to prove beyond all reasonable doubt, the contentious and (sometimes) contemptious and dismissive views he holds. Again whilst I respect his views, I reserve the right to disagree with them and in the case of the FujiFilm X-H2S, I clearly do! I hope that answers your point on the 'compared to what'. Kind regards Pat    
    • Hi Patr, I'm sure its a cracking camera but as Ken would say "Compared to what?' That what he claimed, the image was no better or worse than previous much less expensive models.          Regards, GO  
    • I found this forum in a link from another Fuji forum so I'm glad to be here.  Regarding Ken, he's a strong, unique personality and part of his identity is to rattle the pots and pans. He's a quirky, intelligent person who has opinions, like we all do. His presentation can be extremely off putting, but he's worth listening to when deciding on a new Fuji.  I agree with others here who say it's best to rent a new camera if possible, and compare to one's own knowledge base and shooting preferences.
