Split Screen in Manual Mode

Hi,

In manual mode I set the MF Assist to “Focus Peak”

When I turn off the camera and turn it on again the MF Assist has returned to “Split Screen”

Is there a way to stop this happening??

It is very annoying.

Thank you

Bernard

Bernard,

I’ve never had this happen on my X-T10, X-T2, X-T5 and I can’t think of any settings that could cause this. What camera (I presume X-T5), what lens, which firmware versions ?

Something to do with custom settings perhaps - but I can't figure out the exact configuration that would cause this - do you use custom settings and do you have different focus assist options with different custom settings?

Yes, but when I switch the camera off and then back on again, the last setting is preserved (Dual Display or not, also MF Focus Assist mode e.g. Focus Peak Highlight). I think what Bernard means is that after he switches his camera off and back on again, having set MF Focus Assist to Focus Peak Highlight, his camera reverts MF Focus Assist to Digital Split Image. If that is what Bernard meant, I can’t figure out how that could happen. Even if he meant Dual Display, that also stays in the last state after switching my camera on again.

Are any other settings reverted back to a default state as well on restarts?

Also, are any other MF Assist options reset back to the split image state when the camera is restarted?

If these happen, it could be a hardware problem, as in if the first answer is ‘yes’, the chip storing the settings or the “back-up” battery is bad. If the second answer is ‘yes’, the cell in the chip holding that setting’s storage area may be bad.

Based on what you and @Greybeard are saying, it does not sound like a general firmware / software issue, it could still be a firmware issue just for this camera — the firmware update just did not install all the way.

I don't know why this was happening but for information purposes I have solved the problem.

By opening each of the 7 + custom settings and using the Q button I was able to save the MF Assist setting to "Peak" for each one. The setting now remains permanent.

Thanks to everybody who tried to assist.

Bernard
