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.
Hi all, I’m new to the forum. I’ve been using my x-t20 for a year now and I am really happy about its capabilities! There is just one little thing that totally annoys me every single time I use this camera. While using the EVF, my nose moves around the focus point, so damn annoying! I can’t find a way to change this, because I rather use the back buttons to move it around. Please please help me out on this one? Looking forward to your replies!
I am having some trouble with my ERF function on my XPRO 2. It really started after I implemented the 4.00 update so I'm wondering if that has caused it. Since then I have done the 4.01 update and the problem still persists.
After doing a lot of google searches (and forum searches) I found that most people this happened to solved it by setting the AF to "Single Point," so I did the same and the ERF still does NOT function.
Just to be clear the front switch DOES toggle between OVF and EVF with no problem, when I push the switch to the left (toward the lens) the ERF no longer does anything.
I tried to reset everything via the Menu and that did no help either.
Are there any other settings I should know about to get the ERF to pop up in the corner, or that would keep it from functioning? Or is there a way to factory reset (resetting firmware as well) utilizing more than the options in the menu?
Hope someone else out there can help!
I have an X100F which is my go-to camera. At an event this week-end I accidentally locked the camera by unknowingly pressing the Menu button. This caught me out as I was unaware of this button’s feature. I then proceeded to press every button until I finally unlocked the camera. I now have a problem with the EVF when in “Eye Sensor View Mode” in that my customized icons on the EVF screen, such as the histogram, appear for approximately 1 secs and then disappear. This does not allow time to make an adjustment to Exposure Compensation – a real nuisance. All the icons show up on the rear LCD screen OK when the eye is removed. Also, all icons show up on the OVF and stay on. I can switch on the EVF icons by pressing the AEF/AFL button, but they only stay on for a second. I’ve checked “Screen Settings – Display Custom Settings – EVF”, and they are in order.
How do I reset the X100F to keep the EVF icons on continuously when the EVF is in use? Have I created a bug in my efforts to unlock the camera? Has anyone else had this problem? Any help would be appreciate.
Auto iso in video keeps changing iso, ruining the footage. Camera was on a tripod in a church when people hardly moved and with constant light, but the video was getting lighter and darker. I noticed it during outside too when did some video outdoor too. Any option rather than put it to say iso 160 as outdoor when sunny and cloudy you would need auto iso to compensate when the sun goes behind the clouds.
I am importing from X100V on a High Sierra iMac with no problems. Are you using Image Capture to import? If so have you checked the destination selection at the bottom left f the window? Make sure you explicitly specify a non-ambiguous folder name (e.g. not documents) so you can be sure of where you're looking afterwards. Also you could use Search to search for a specific filename that you believe you have downloaded.
