** Firmware request: Shutter speed in video **

*** Firmware request ***
Is the X-H1 really "Video oriented"? Not enough.
I would like to see in the MOVIE SETTING, an option where I can select the default shutter speed for the 30 and 60 on the shutter speed dial, only when I am in MOVIE MODE, obviously.
On the 60 position I could select by default: none(stay in 60) - 50 - 48, and on 30 position I could select the default shutter speed: none(stay in 30), 25 or 24.
Which are the most used shutter speed on cinema. Then, when I put the shutter speed on 30 or 60, I get faster the speed that I really need.

"I would like to see in the MOVIE SETTINGS, an option where I can select the default shutter speed for the 30 and 60 on the shutter speed dial, only when I am in MOVIE MODE, obviously."

 

Forgive me for not understanding, I'm not exactly sure what you're asking here. You can specify 48, 24, 30, 60 in the movie settings in-camera and when switching over to video mode, it will display that framerate. Are you saying you want to see it on the top selector dial instead or the opposite?

Yes, indeed, is not clear enough. I try to explain it better: 👍

Currently, when I am in Movie mode if I set the video quality on FHD at 24P and I want film at the speed ss24, I must turn the Shutter speed dial to 30, then with the rear command dial adjust the speed until ss24. It's a lot of gestures for a so simple thing.
What I would like is that in video mode (only), when I set the Shutter speed dial to 30, it go automatic on 24 and not 30. Then in video mode, the 30 is setted on 24 or whatever I want, e.g: 25, or 30. Idem for the 60 position, I would like to have the possibility to set it on 50, or 48 by default.
For this, is necessary to add in the menu on the Movie setting a new string where I can set what is my favourite speed for the 30 or the 60 position on the Shutter speed dial.

Another solution: It could be much simpler if the movie settings and a shutter degree angle setting are synchronized automatically. So that depending on which frame rate I’m shooting and it will automatically set the shutter speed to the 180° setting or anything else that I said it to. I believe the Panasonic GH series does it this way.

Is it better now? 😀

I understand now, thanks. 

However, on MY XH1, I don't need to do this as the shutter speed automatically switches no matter what position the command dial is in previously. When you switch to movie mode and you have a shutter speed set at say, 1/180th of a second, does the top LCD not say 24p (or whatever you chose under 'movie settings')? Your chosen setting under 'movie settings' should override any command dial setting and display the correct framerate on the top lcd, is what I'm trying to say.

Of course, this isn't completely intuitive because you're sitting there looking at a dial that says 1/180th, but that's what you get with mechanical dials in a digital body. The only way they could synchronize it would be to add some kind of motor to the dial itself, allowing it to automatically turn to your chosen speed when you flip into video mode, I suppose.

Are you sure?
What you read on the top of LCD is only the video frame rate, not the shutter speed. It's completely different. The shutter speed is shown below, if you put 180 on the dial, the shutter speed is at 1/180th even the frame rate is at 24 or 25 or 50.

You're right, the phrasing of the question is still confusing me, lol.

So, you're right. When shooting video I usually (and probably obviously) just select my framerate in settings and then double my selected shutter speed using the T(time) selector on my wheel, then fine tune to whatever I want it to be using the command dials. It's really not that big a deal for me to take the extra few seconds to select the shutter speed, but everyone has different degrees of need in this regard, I suppose.

The issue I see with making it automatic in settings is that the amount of users with this particular need is probably very low. I'm personally all over the map in video depending on the scene in question and not always using a specific framerate AND shutter speed every single time I shoot video.

You could also use the T mode on the shutter speed dial and adjust on the fly using your command dial.

Yes sachafilms, indeed, it's faster. I never thought to use the T mode in this way. I just test it and the good thing is that it remember the last speed used.
I think it solve in great part my problem.
Thank you

Glad to hear that! 
All that being said and even if I think Fuij's ergonomics are great, I would love to be able to save multiple video presets and restore them with a function button... that would be amazing!

    • That's a really funny question, since it would have been easy to calculate it yourself based on the file sizes! 😜
    • Have you tried pulling out the main battery and leaving it sit on a shelf for several days to let the settings backup battery / capacitor completely discharge? This should cause the settings memory chip to lose all of its current settings and go back to the factory defaults — as of the last update. 
    • Hi lolo,   have to say I can't believe that this has not had more attention as you have done an absolutely incredible job here! I was in the exact same situation of moving from LR to C1 and really loving it except for missing my film styles pack and finding the native options available for C1 not quite there in terms of accuracy and quality. I looked all over the place before finding this post and links. What a relief!  Many thanks for your efforts here mate, very much appreciated!  cheers, LB
    • Hi there. I've just bought a second-hand X70 and I can’t seem to reset it to factory settings. When I choose reset in the menu I can't toggle to the required options, they're in red, all the commands I put in only toggles between 'ok' and 'cancel', the manual doesn't offer any help either. I would be very grateful for some help! Many thanks in advance.
    • Dimsol, I will mention something that may be very obvious to some but this happen to me. The shutter speed was set on "A" while I was testing my X-T4 in dimm light. I was under the impression that my X-T4 was taking 2 picture, but is was just the shutter opening and closing at 1/4 sec timing. Is this the case or do you actually have 2 pictures saved on memory card per press ?
