Small point (newbie who might be going mad...)


Recommended Posts


Just recently got my X-T5 (which is lovely albeit blimmin' complicated!). I have got some basic settings on it and I'm now reading through the manual to make sure I at least know about everything.

One thing which is totally throwing me. In the manual it references the selector dial underneath the shutter speed control as being the "Metering Dial". This suggests that this dial would allow selection between things like spot metering, centre-weighted meeting, matrix, etc... right? This is confirmed in multiple places in the manual, see the attached screenshots. However on mine, this control -- unless I truly am going mad -- is only to switch between stills mode and video mode.

What is going on here?!

I believe you are looking at the X-T3 manual instead of the X-T5 manual.

X-T5: https://fujifilm-dsc.com/en/manual/x-t5/about_this_camera/parts/

See parts 4 and 19, which are the shutter speed dial (4) and the Still/Movie mode dial (19).

X-T3: https://fujifilm-dsc.com/en-int/manual/x-t3/about_this_camera/parts/index.html

Same numbers, but (19) is the Metering dial.

p.s. Welcome to the forum.

Thanks all. Jeepers - talk about a rookie error! Yep... I had Googled the X-T5 manual, Google returned me the X-T3 manual and they're so similar I didn't notice until I had driven myself crazy wondering why the difference between my camera and the book. I am so new to it I genuinely thought I must be missing something!

Sorry folks... bad start! I'll improve.
