X-T2 Card Slot Selection

Recommended Posts

It's all a bit cumbersome having to menu-dive. The process is meant to be: Set-up menu (wrench icon) > Save Data Set-up > Switch Slot (Sequential): no choices offered, but if you simply hit "Switch Slot (Sequential)" a message comes up saying "Processing", and the slot is switched. It should then stay that way unless you switch slot again - or unless you turn the camera on without a card in one of the slots, in which case it switches automatically to whichever slot does have a card.

I’m pretty sure that if you press the playback button for a few seconds a dialogue should pop up allowing you to change slots!

Correction

Press and hold the delete button simultaneously click the rear command dial and a dialogue box will open up offering you an option to change the card slots!

The delete/control dial shortcut is to format the card (but very useful to be reminded of it - thanks.) Would be good if - in some future update, perhaps - Change Slots could be assigned to a Function button - or at least added to My Menu. But then again, I don't change slots very often, and when I do it's usually by accident! I'd definitely like Format to be assignable to My Menu, though.

This only changes the card selection in View Image mode - card used for Sequential data storage is independent of the card used for viewing image

Thanks for clarifying this!  The best way is the one you shared earlier in this thread.  Remove the cards except from the slot you want to be first, turn off the camera, turn it back on and insert another card in the empty slot.

    • I'm surprised as well - I have that lens currently on the X-H2S and there is no obvious play.
    • Hi GO I am comparing it to all my FujiFilm bodies and the other marque in my (as my beloved would put it) 'too many cameras' fleet. Ken stated that the IQ was 'muddy' compared to the X-T4 and having tested it alongside my X-T4 and X-S10 (and for fairness sake my X-H1 and X-T3) I can find absolutely no difference in IQ between the newest bodies (X-T4/X-S10) which are marginally better than the older ones (X-T3/X-H1/X-Pro2) if you really start down the IQ pixel-peeping route. Its not a route I go down. I have been more than happy with the IQ of the X-T4 and X-S10 but the subject aquisition and focus success rate of the X-H2S takes it to a different level above both of those super cameras and that is/was the rationale for buying it. As well as the phenominal speed and buffering and stacked sensor. That's on the FujiFilm 'compared to what' side. If I then compare the X-H2S with my Sony A7 iv (my only full frame camera) I would say that the Sony is marginally better on focus speed, tracking and (pixel peeping) detail but, as I have more FujiFilm lenses and prefer the tactile feel of the Fuji's over the more clinical Sony, I am more than satisfied with the X-H2S. Each to their own! His point that the IQ was no better or worse than previous much less expensive models was an irrelevance to me as I wasn't after a quantum leap in IQ (I am more than satisfied), I just wanted a much better focus and aquisition rate which I now have with the cracking X-H2S. I like Ken and his thoughts on FujiFilm lenses just about mirror mine though I confess to not owning/using as many as him. But of those that I do own, they feature in his 'top-5'. I even prefer my 16-80mm over the bag of primes 16-55mm! Whilst I do find his reviews very refreshing and interesting/different, I find Maarten Heilbronn, Andy Mumford and the Hybrid Shooter offer a more balanced viewpoint coupled with actual photo examples which I,  as a simple retired soldier, can relate to and form an opinion/judgement on. Unless I have missed them, I cannot recall ever seeing any actual examples taken by Ken to prove beyond all reasonable doubt, the contentious and (sometimes) contemptious and dismissive views he holds. Again whilst I respect his views, I reserve the right to disagree with them and in the case of the FujiFilm X-H2S, I clearly do! I hope that answers your point on the 'compared to what'. Kind regards Pat    
    • Hi Patr, I'm sure its a cracking camera but as Ken would say "Compared to what?' That what he claimed, the image was no better or worse than previous much less expensive models.          Regards, GO  
    • I found this forum in a link from another Fuji forum so I'm glad to be here.  Regarding Ken, he's a strong, unique personality and part of his identity is to rattle the pots and pans. He's a quirky, intelligent person who has opinions, like we all do. His presentation can be extremely off putting, but he's worth listening to when deciding on a new Fuji.  I agree with others here who say it's best to rent a new camera if possible, and compare to one's own knowledge base and shooting preferences.
