Just bought a secondhand X30 which arrived today.

I'm trying to set up gridlines to help me with rule of thirds. I've entered "Set up/Screen setup/Framing gridlines/Grid 9/OK"

Doesn't seem to do anything. Am I doing it wrong or could there be a fault?

Yes, that and then you need to toggle between the 3 screen options 



the popular expression wishful thinking is an oxymoron!


To all TAPATALK users

As a form of courtesy towards your fellow users of this forum, PLEASE remove the obnoxious tapatalk signature, it adds nothing to anyone’s contribution and it is only a sneaky way used by tapatalk to push their product by polluting each forum participant with promoting their products with unpaid advertising for their software and the brand of your phone. Removing it is easy and it is an act of courtesy that shows respect for all those whom are annoyed by this pointless feature. This is not a personal attack to you, the annoyance is caused by tapatalk and the phone or tablet brands, they are getting all the exposure and you gain nothing by this.

Thanks milandro

Discovered that after selecting one of the 3 screen options - i.e. 9. you then have to scroll further down the screen setup menue, select "Display Custom Settings" and tick "Framing Guidlines". What a faff, not covered in the user guide but now sorted. The gridlines show in the viewfinder as well as the screen which is good.
