That feature, blinkies, seems to function only through the EVF not the LCD.

 

I thought that at first, but after I'd turned the camera off and on again and cycled through the display screens a couple of times, I found that the blinkies were working on the LCD as well as the EVF. Maybe it just takes the camera a little while to register the change. Anyhow, it's a great addition!

:D Yup it works great in all view modes. Fantastic addition....!

When viewing on LCD cycling thru display modes (disp back).

 

One option, screen displays blinkies, and one doesn't.

 

Caused me some wonderment at first too.

 

If blinkies don't appear on the LCD use "disp back" to cycle to screen that does.

 

Having blinkies OFF is nice for chimping purposes.

Wraithwrider, I was able to download the pdf file that pete1959 attached to his original post. I also followed the link that he provided, and Fuji offers two PDF downloads there. The first pdf is the user manual that reads version 2.10 on the cover. The second is the new features guide. Here is the link directly to the new features guide. (MikeG, does this link work for you?) 

 

P.S. I have not updated the firmware yet for my XT-2 - just been too busy to grapple with it - but I am really looking forward to trying out the new features (provided in this update and the previous one).

Thank you. So version 3.0 is at the moment web based and not pdf. I understand, I think :)

Yes it does but there is a full version 3 of the manual, but it seems to be only web based at the moment. I have tried to download a pdf that I can utilise in iBooks, but no go, all I get is the index to the new version of the manual, really annoying.

 

Note the front cover of the web based manual!

Mike, this the PDF, it might have escaped your attention

 

http://fujifilm-dsc.com/en/manual/x-t2_v30/x-t2_v30_nfg_omw_en_s_f.pdf

 

If you think you cannot download it open the page above

 

you go the the menu “ File....” it should be the third one from the left ( I have my mac on another language but It doesn’t matter)” scroll until you find Export as PDF.

 

This very useful function allows you to download almost any internet page as a PDF file

MikeG, now I can see why you are frustrated! Nice to be able to access it but will only let you open one menu item at a time - online. Hope they create a pdf of the full manual for version 3 soon. It is nice to be able to access this kind of thing offline and one doesn't always have cell service or wifi available.

If you have a Mac, it's easy enough to drop the new pages into the earlier manual in the appropriate places. Both PDFs are locked but that can be bypassed by Print->Save to PDF and the output of that will not be locked. Not sure how easy this is on a PC.

Follow my advise and you no longer will be frustrated it is really simple (at least on a Mac) and Mike G has a Mac, I know that.

 

That's great and I think we know this. It's the new features guide not the new, .pdf V 3.0 manual 

 

Hopefully the manual will follow shortly.

Milandro your link is to the new features guide only and not the full manual, when trying to save the web based full manual as a PDF only results in the 12 index pages only and not the full manual! which is what I'm after, web access is not always available so a stand alone PDF is important!

 

Maybe I'm being too impatient and it will come in time, a shame as Fuji is normally very good at supporting it's products.

    • No, it doesn't work if you have pulled the ring to manual. The 14mm is a sharp lens by the way. You won't be disappointed.
    • Don't worry about the shutter count. If it's working OK just use it. It's very unlikely that the shutter is worn out. I believe that 150000 actuations has been quoted for the X-T3, but that from memory. It's going to be at least 100000 though.
    • I forgot to mention. To see the images correctly on the camera you can check some settings. Make sure that evf and lcd color are set to 0. Likewise lcd color adjustment (you can tweak these later if necessary). More importantly make sure 'natural live view' is off. These are located in the 'spanner' section under 'screen setting'.
    • Can you describe the difference for us? What software are you using to view them on your computer? Do they look, the same on another computer and monitor or on a tablet or phone? Is your monitor calibrated? Most monitors that are not specifically made for photography are too blue and too bright out of the box. If you don't have a colorimeter, and your Images look OK on other devices, you can try adjusting the monitor using its controls.
    • Last summer I sold my whole Canon setup (5D mkiii, 35mm, and 85mm). I actually adored the setup I had, but the weight really bothered my body. I was very excited about the mirrorless cameras and their light weight. I went to my local camera shop and they talked me into buying the Fuji X-T3. I was a little nervous about it not being full-frame, but the shop assured me it could perform on a professional level. My first lens for the camera was the fujinon 23mm 1.4. I've been using it for portrait sessions (families, seniors, etc), and it's just not performing anywhere close to how my Canon setup performed. When I zoom in on the images, they are just not clear and crisp! Part of what I love to offer my clients is the ability to print their images bigger for wall art, etc. I don't feel like I can recommend they do that anymore. Do y'all think I need to go back to a full-frame camera? Or am I just doing something wrong with the X-T3? Thanks!
