X-T20 | Firmware 1.10 | Touch panel operation when using the EVF


Recommended Posts

TLDR; user can't figure out how "Touch panel operation when using the EVF" works

 

Ok, so got my new X-T20 last night, got it all set up (having had to go on YouTube to figure out how the back button focus works on this camera as compared to my X-T10, aaarggh. Why doesn't the wee square turn green when it's capture the focus like my X-T10 did .. ), updated to the new firmware 1.11, and am mad excited about the ability to use the touch panel operation when using the EVF.

 

However, having tried all the various settings and possibilities, it just will not work.

 

I have

 

  • activated the touch screen on/off => ON 
  • EVF Touch Screen Area Settings => ALL
  • tried using the various view modes, without expected result.

 

I expect that when this is set up correctly, that looking through the viewfinder and touching the lcd screen, the focus points move in the viewfinder also. Is this assumption correct?

Nevermind, figured it out.

Touchscreen, aye, but perhaps they mean "hold your finger down and drag it across the LCD while looking through the viewfinder and poking yourself in the cheek. Oh, and keep your nose away as well because that will also move the focus point". Not quite as snappy for the marketing, I'm sure we can all agree.

 

I was expecting it to work in exactly the same way as the LCD - you touch, it focusses. 

And also, a suggestion for the next update: a way to automatically re-center the focus point.

      I recently bought my xpro3 but I have an issue with the evf when I half press the shutter button, sometimes the screen is glitching with purple or pink  abstract patches on some areas of the evf screen. It happens quickly and disappear after it focus on the subject. It does this when the camera and lens are having trouble with what it focus. And also this happens randomly. I used xf 35mm f1.4 as it is my only lens for now. Anyone had this issue? I havent update my camera yet, since I can't download as they halt the current firmware for now. Please help.

      Is there such a thing?  Wondering if it's possible to have the camera choose shutter & aperture, but not focus automatically?
      May be a really dumb question, sorry if that's the case
      Thanks!

      I recently got an XT20 with the 18-55 kit lens. Today I was trying it out at home, when I found out that when I try to zoom quickly in or out in manual mode, I see a horizontal light appear for a fraction of a second on the EVF. I cannot see this happening on the LCD. This happens only in manual mode, and not auto. This does not happen when recording a video. I am using mechanical shutter. But I don't think this is a shutter issue as I see this white line for a second when zooming quickly. Also I don't see it when I see EVF auto brightness from Auto to manual. The firmware is updated. Also tried zooming outside, I don't see that issue.
      The issue is as described here by another user:

      I use an X-H1. 
      Right now there are 4 modes when you press the VIEW MODE button. 
      The one I use is EVF + EYE Sensor. It feels right coming from a DSLR and it helps save battery. You can preview photos on the display with the playback button and everything's okay.
      But as soon as you want to go to the Main Settings you have to either switch the mode to any other mode (except EVF only) or change the settings using the EVF. Then to go back to EVF + EYE Sensor you have to press the view mode button 4 times. And If you want to go to “live view” that is LCD view, you again have to do the same process. 
      It’s annoying. Is there any way to only put 2 options on the View mode button? Just EVF + Eye Sensor and Eye Sensor only?
      Or is there anyway to request a firmware update to
      • Show playback and settings on LCD while in EVF + Eye sensor mode.
      • A one press switch to EYE Sensor and EVF + Eye Sensor mode.

      I love my X-T20. It’s the best camera I’ve ever bought - except for one thing: since I bought it 15 months ago I’ve had to have the sensor cleaned three times. Previously, I’ve had a LUMIX G3 and G6 and never had to get them cleaned at all. I know getting the sensor cleaned is an occupational hazard for mirrorless camera owners but I don’t  use this camera any more than those, so have I just been unlucky or is there something about the design of the X-T20 that makes it particularly vulnerable to dust and dirt?

    • Hi, DaveC. Thank you so much for the really valuable information...very much appreciated! On the power off/on, I guess I was being a little too impatient when pressing the shutter. On the auto ISO, I'll definitely give it a try, as that's a pretty important one for me. I have found that the ISO button and joystick pretty easy to reach while looking at the EVF, so maybe there's no reason to reassign the top left dial. With only a little time spent with the X-S10 so far, I have found the AF and image quality outstanding, as you noted. Even with the challenges of learning a new system, it's been fun getting to know my new toy! Again, thank you for responding to my inquiry. Pentax Forums is a valuable source of information for Pentax users, and it's nice to know Fuji X Forum can provide similar advice and support. Cheers!  
    • OK thanks for the reply,  It's seems like a pretty straightforward thing to implement with all the super fast ssd available in the market.  Maybe in the next model..
    • I don't believe it is possible sadly.   But would be great if it was. 
    • Welcome rickc, I too was new to Fuji when I got my X-S10 and 16-80mm last December. It is a great camera and lens combo. Point 1. To wake up the camera just half press the shutter button but keep it pressed for a second or too and it will wake up. When half pressed you will feel the IBIS doing its thing , thats OK, just keep it pressed till it wakes up. Point 2. Set the X-S10 to M mode on the mode dial and you will have aperure on the front dial and shutter speed on the rear dial. Then set the iso to Auto, Press the iso button on the top plate and use the joy stick to scroll down to the auto iso settings. The user manual does explain the auto iso settings quite well (the pdf that is). Note you can also re-assign the top left dial to exposure compensation if you like that as well. I have been using these settings just lately to photograph butterflies at high shutter speeds. I came from using Canon and Nikon cameras and find the image quality is outstanding and hope you continue to enjoy the camera. Best wishes DaveC.
