External Field Monitor FEELWORLD 7" FW760 and the X-Pro2


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 
I just got a FEELWORLD 7" IPS 4K HDMI Full HD 1920x1200 On-Camera Monitor FW760 to use with my Fuji X-Pro2
 
After trying to make it work and also try to find some info online for more than 2 hours, I’m now starting to become really frustrated by this thing so I do believe it is wiser and the right time to ask online.
 
The external monitor is connected to my camera by a HDMI cable (Normal from the screen to micro on the Fuji X-Pro2 port). When I use the play back function to see my images recorded on the SD card, they are showing on the big external monitor and all controls from the camera seems to work well (zoom in and out, moving to next image,…) but the trouble is when I want to use the external monitor on Live View… Then, blue screen with the HDMI mention on the top right and a permanent “No Signal” message centred on the screen.
 
I’m not interested in making videos but as I was trying to make this screen working, I tried a video and same thing… Showing up on the external screen when playing back but not while recording on live view.
 
As it works very well (awesome colours and very sharp view) on play back mode, I guess the cable connection is good and I must miss some setting(s) to be changed on the camera itself. I checked everything on the camera menus but can’t find what’s wrong.
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated
 
Thank you

Perhaps Fuji never intended the camera to work that way.

I have an XPRO2 as well and have been hoping to read how to set up an external monitor also.

 

 

And you are perfectly right... That's the problem indeed. I've found the answer somewhere else :(

Actually none of the X Series cameras are allowing the use of an external monitor on live view. Let's hope it could be added at some point with a firmware update (if possible, I don't know about that).

 

For now, the external monitor can only be used when playing back still images or videos. That's already great while shooting landscapes as possible to check images on location with a big screen and to be sure everything is looking good before leaving the place but still, I would have really enjoyed to also have the live view possibility.

 

Crossing the fingers it will become available soon ;-)

What about the Thethered Shooting plug in for Lightroom, have you tried that?

I have the wireless Fiji app on my smartphone and on a 7 ich tablet. Have yet to try it though so I can't personally comment on its utility. The posting I've seen about the app suggest that it's not 100% ready for prime tine.

Nope, not yet. Not using much Lightroom to be honest. Old fashion and doing most of my work with Photoshop. But anyway, I think it could be nice to work on the studio but not helping me when shooting outdoors or on location .

I have it too and to me it seems to work well. Only thing is, on the iPad, it works only in portrait mode so already better than the back LCD but still not showing a huge display. Would be nice to have it working on landscape mode.

 

Other trouble is when I'm shooting macro make-up... To do that, I'm using the Samyang 100mm which is an awesome lens but manual so this is probably where the external LCD would have been the most helpful as it has the focus peeking too. To be able to focus on the eye of the model while standing 30-35cm from her face. This is not the only reason why I got this LCD screen at first but probably the most practical one... At least, what I was thinking ;-)

X-pro2 does NOT support external screen for live view. The HDMI port is for playback only. If you want to use external screen for live view, you need X-T2. Tested and it works for both stills and video.

You are wrong. X-T2 DOES support using external screen for live view.

    • I don’t have it as I went for the literal bag of primes (16, 23, 35 & 50) but the XF 16-55 f2.8 is well regarded as a “bagful of primes”. 16mm is a 24mm equivalent on the wide end and 55mm is close to an 85mm equivalent. F2.8 gives a good level subject separation/bokeh. Not small or light but plenty of folks sing it’s praises. Dave
    • Not really, unless you want to limit yourself a lot on the image quality. For portraits I would recommend at least an 85mm F/1.4 lens. For landscape photography it depends on whether you want to make panoramas and then the question is which focal length or image effect you want to achieve. There is a lack of more precise information on your part.
    • Does the aperture ring have whole, half or a third gradations?
    • Hi When I was researching impressions of the new Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 R LM WR and how it pairs with different bodies I found very little info and/or images of the lens together with an X-E4 body. I therefore figured I should make a post about it so other people researching the same thing can find these picture and info. I have attached some pictures showcasing the lens on my X-E4 body. One very interesting/sad thing to note is that if the aperture ring is left at the 1.4 mark the auto lock knob/button will actually touch the flat surface on which the camera is placed which is not ideal. This is however not an issue when having the lens hood mounted, if a Peak Design style screw mount is attached or if moving the aperture ring to the 2.0 mark. All these pictures are taken with my phone so they are not really of stellar quality but are probably useful anyway  My overall impression of the lens thus far is really good, it produces very sharp images even fully open. It balances quite well with the X-E4; when actually shooting it feels really good but when carrying it around it is a bit front heavy. I found that there is a dramatic change in carrying comfort if the strap is mounted on the body in a diagonal fashion so to speak, i.e. with one anchor at either side of the body and one at the bottom screw mount. Using this configuration really offsets the balance point when carrying your camera diagonally, sling style.   Also, this is my first post at the forum so ... Hi all
