Fujifilm GFX 50R mount adapter setting not working

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Not too many topics about the 50R ... Nevermind ... Well, I need some help about the problem as exposed in the tittle :  In the GFX 50R menus, there is an option for customizing lenses from other brands one can use with an adapter ring. Same as with the X-T series.

No problem for declaring the focal lenght, works fine; the hitch is on the next lines which remain greyed out, and thus not usable (adjusting vignetting, distortion, color ...) Nice things but out of reach !

Disregarding this problem, the adapter (Fotodiox Pro) works fine with some of my old Nikkor's.

Does some one out there have an idea ?

Thanks in advance,

Regards

I am starting to wonder if the GFX50R has some general problems with adapters. I was hoping to use my Canon TS-E lenses via adapter, unfortunately so far I haven't found one that works properly. Two copies of the Techart showed "lens error" (manufacturer couldn't identify the cause), a Viltrox only worked on occasion and otherwise also caused "lens error" (waiting on a replacement for this one at the moment). So any experiences (especially positive ones) would be greatly appreciated.

    • Another vote for wide lenses. Most cities in Europe are pretty tight, so unless you're expecting to shoot wildlife or have a lot of time for scouting/shooting landscapes, I can't see a long lens being overly useful. Depending on the type of shooting you're planning on doing, I'd almost be worried about 18mm not being wide enough, if anything. For casual photos it would be fine, but if you're looking to do any architecture or cityscape type stuff, you may run out of room. I'd say just b
    • You have a good tool that you can grow into, so to speak. As you gain the experience, those extra buttons and dials open up options that you may want to use. Keep posting your images! In the end, technique is second to composition, the why you take the photo. After a month or so, when you have had time to practice and reflect on things, I will tell you a fourth option to the question you asked about how to capture those high dynamic range images — your landscape photos. But no doubt, y
    • At the end of the day, only 3 settings truly matter for photography.   Aperture Shutter Speed ISO Everything else are just automations designed to make your life easier. The X-T4 can most readily mimick the sort of camera everyone started with in photography education for decades, a manual mechanical camera. Put the camera in Manual focus mode, set the aperture, shutter speed and ISO manually and learn what happens when you mess up. I'd recommend getting and reading the Ansel
    • Hi Olaf W,  thank you for your reply. It’s on mechanical only. It sounds like a pin problem not picking up anything on camera ? But yet it does fire the flash manual only but only up to 200/1 at shutter sync x 250/1 I get black band .  Thanks 
    • Do you use the electronic shutter? The flash will work only with the mechanical shutter. And, welcome to our forum!
