SOLVED: I feel like a silly goose but I'll leave this here for anybody who finds this helpful. Originally posted this query because what I saw through the optical viewfinder was LARGER than the picture that is actually taken. This is just how the OVF in this camera works: it's bigger than what's actually seen by its lens. Never personally encountered this before in a camera. No, you cannot disable this behavior.
Hi all, I'm new to this forum and just purchased a used X100F (an upgrade for me... I've spent time behind a Nikon film camera and an older model of Fujifilm X. I spend most of my time taking pictures of flowers).
I've been struggling with one particular feature, not knowing how to disable it, not knowing what it's called in the menu system: When I look through the OVF and press shutter lightly to autofocus, sometimes the frame lines contract pretty small. It's like there's a "smart auto-crop" deciding how to frame my photo. But I want to be able to decide that for myself. This only happens when my eye is to the OVF; it doesn't happen on the LCD screen.
Can I turn this feature off? Or is this permanent, in OVF? Or is my camera malfunctioning? (bought it used...dual viewfinder is out-of-order, for one) More context: I am not using a teleconverter. I'm not using zoom. I've been perusing reviews, forums, the user manual... nothing sounds like what I'm describing.
Does anyone know what this is called and whether I can disable this feature? Thank you in advance!
Any luck with this software using an X100F?
If so please share the procedures.
I'm using windows 10/ direct cable to the computer (no hubs in beetween).
The green led in the back of the camera just blinks after I switched it on with the cable pluged in to the PC.
Thanks in advance,
I understand that face detection disables photometry. But I notice some undocumented inconsistencies when face-detection is selected, depending on OVF/EVF selection:
With EVF, the metering icon in the viewfinder displays the appropriate face-detection/eye-detection icon. Photometry choice is disabled. So far so good.
With OVF on / dual EVF off, the metering icon in the viewfinder keeps displaying the underlying selected photometry icon (although photometry selection is disabled). This is wrong and confusing.
With OVF on / dual EVF on, the metering icon also keeps displaying the photometry choice, but it is yellow-colored (undocumented). In addition, a function key assigned to photometry appears to be active, you can choose a photometry mode and the choice is regularly reflected in the viewfinder. Again utterly misleading.
Can somebody explain?

I've been trying to save 2 different colour presets onto my X100f. I've been inputting the presets for a HP5 acros look, and a kodachrome look based off classic chrome.
I go into the Q menu, create the look on a custom setting, so for example the Hp5 look on C1. I then make the Kodachrome look on C2. The C1 Hp5 look is then deleted. What am I doing wrong? How do I save multiple colour profiles at the same time?
Agree, this is interesting for non pro version (T-30) too. For example for home portrait experiment.
He's the main apsc Fuji landscape photographer I watch although not so much now as his is mainly mountain photography (he has specific reviews of the 10-24 and an XT2 v XH1 review although you've already had some good feedback on these above). The only other fujifilm landscape photographers I regularly watch use the GFX series which whilst it seems superb is too expensive/heavy for me. However, Adam Gibbs does occasionally still use his XT when hiking and Thomas Heaton dabbled who with an Xt now mainly uses an XT4 for video and a GFX 50R for stills.
