I'm having some weird issues with the Fringer EF-FX Pro II on my Fuji XT3 and I hope someone can help.
When using the adapter with my Canon and Sigma lenses the image on the camera LCD is not showing the correct depth of field for the selected aperture unless I half-press the shutter button.
The dof in the image remains wide open unless I half-press the shutter.
The exposure of the image is shown correctly and changes accordingly when changing the apertue on the lens, the aperture numbers on the screen also indicate the correct selected f-stop, but the dof in the image remains shallow, as if the lens is wide open, unless I half-press the shutter.
Half pressing the shutter also no longer affects the focus of the image.
I'm shooting in S mode with settings full manual- ss, iso, aperture.
I've formatted the camera, updated to the latest firmware in camera and adapter (1.7) and the issue still persists.
Is this there a menu fix I'm missing here? Has anyone else experienced this? Or is this possibly a Fringer issue?
Thanks for your help!
Hi, so I shoot mostly using the LCD, from the hip, and I encountered a program today with my XT1's. Somewhat similar to an old post: https://www.fuji-x-forum.com/topic/1948-x-t1-lcd-fails-when-articulated/
But my situation is a little different. When my LCD is completely flush, in the normal position against the body, it will be totally blacked out/looking like it's off. I've cycled the 'viewmode' and nothing has helped. I did a factory reset and updated the firmware. But I believe I have a body-to-LCD ribbon short.
If I pull the LCD away it will work, but only in a limited range. From angled slightly upwards to completely flat facing upwards to the sky. If it's totally parallel with the body to facing downs toward the ground, the LCD will black out/turn off. I can still take photos when it's like this though.
I'm pretty sure it's a short in the ribbon — if I push the ribbon around very gently, the screen will go on and off. But anyway, I would like to put this problem out there and see if anyone has encountered it before. The camera has seen a lot of use in the last 3 years, but no drops/damage. Luckily the EVF works normally and used XT1s are pretty cheap now.
I have recently bought X100F and use card reader only the first time. Now i tried the usb cable that was shipped with the camera. It charged the camera but it didn't connect.
Because i have had this issues before with other things, i can give my solution.
1. It is rarely a driver issue, don't go there first!
2. Use a good thick cable with a RF-filter on. It wasn't on the cable i got but it is a cable with a visible outgrowth, usually on one side only.
3. Don't use a USB3. Use USB2.0 (the one without the blue inside)
4. Don't connect to monitor or a hub. Connect directly to MAC/PC/Laptop
5. Connect to camera first, then to PC and last turn on the camera. And reverse this order when the camera is going to be de-attached.
For your information, this is not a firmware problem, but a hardware problem. Since this model has been on the market, this topic has been discussed enough and appropriate solutions have been worked out. Please read here and here! Incidentally, there are still people who compare a medium format camera with various APS-C cameras, just ridiculous!
I think this is a much better way to interact with people with a certain topic or subject. So you can answer any questions much more targeted and also show practical solutions. Some things can also be discussed more easily and openly.
