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.

    • No, it doesn't work if you have pulled the ring to manual. The 14mm is a sharp lens by the way. You won't be disappointed.
    • Don't worry about the shutter count. If it's working OK just use it. It's very unlikely that the shutter is worn out. I believe that 150000 actuations has been quoted for the X-T3, but that from memory. It's going to be at least 100000 though.
    • I forgot to mention. To see the images correctly on the camera you can check some settings. Make sure that evf and lcd color are set to 0. Likewise lcd color adjustment (you can tweak these later if necessary). More importantly make sure 'natural live view' is off. These are located in the 'spanner' section under 'screen setting'.
    • Can you describe the difference for us? What software are you using to view them on your computer? Do they look, the same on another computer and monitor or on a tablet or phone? Is your monitor calibrated? Most monitors that are not specifically made for photography are too blue and too bright out of the box. If you don't have a colorimeter, and your Images look OK on other devices, you can try adjusting the monitor using its controls.
    • Last summer I sold my whole Canon setup (5D mkiii, 35mm, and 85mm). I actually adored the setup I had, but the weight really bothered my body. I was very excited about the mirrorless cameras and their light weight. I went to my local camera shop and they talked me into buying the Fuji X-T3. I was a little nervous about it not being full-frame, but the shop assured me it could perform on a professional level. My first lens for the camera was the fujinon 23mm 1.4. I've been using it for portrait sessions (families, seniors, etc), and it's just not performing anywhere close to how my Canon setup performed. When I zoom in on the images, they are just not clear and crisp! Part of what I love to offer my clients is the ability to print their images bigger for wall art, etc. I don't feel like I can recommend they do that anymore. Do y'all think I need to go back to a full-frame camera? Or am I just doing something wrong with the X-T3? Thanks!
