Recommended Posts

Good morning all , hope you are doing well.

Im wondering if anyone may be able to assist, im trying to set up bot my xh1 and xt30 to have the screen split when in manual focus.

I just cant seem to find the setting. I can get a square in the center but not when the display separates into 2 screens.

Ive had a look at the manual but no help , so im wondering if anyone might suggest what i might try.

Thank you.

Garth

      So I don't usually shoot video with my beloved X-T1. But, in the past few days, I figured I'll try to shoot a few videos of the kids. I know I couldn't use auto focus, so while using the manual focus, I found it very difficult to insure focus using either the EVF or the LCD screen. The focus peaking feature doesn't seem to work while shooting a video.
      Any advice/tricks?
      Thanks,
      Omar

      Hello - I just bought my X-H1 a few weeks ago and have been using it quite a bit to get up to speed. Last night I photographed singers in a small café using the 35mm f2 lens using manual focus with peaking since it was fairly dark. Everything was going well until about 2.5 hours into the session when the focus would change substantially even though I hadn't moved the focusing ring. This happened when I'd put the camera down for a few minutes. When I picked it back up and turned it on, the focus was very different. I hadn't touched it in the meantime. I'm not absolutely sure about this, but I also recall a couple of instances where the same thing happened when I was shooting, not just when I had set the camera down.
      Has anyone else experienced this behavior?
      I've also noticed that the Film Simulation and Dynamic Range settings seem to reset occasionally. And I've gotten a card error a couple of times in slot 1. I take the card out and put it back in until it works, but these glitches are a little concerning on a brand new camera. Again, have other users had these things occur?
      I really like how this camera has improved my workflow and the quality of the images I'm getting. But I really want to be confident that I can count on it.

      After moving to Fuji X system I extensively used large number of Trans-X bodies and XF lens. Most of them perform excellent optically and very good mechanically. I think Fuji is doing great job designing and supporting gear.
      The only thing is bothering me all the time - if the electronics is dead lens typically becomes fully unusable. There are numerous third party or adapted fully manual lens that solve that concern. But what if I want to keep using my favorite Fuji optics mechanically? I've performed numerous attempts and discovered potential of converting XF 35mm F1.4 and XF 27mm F2.8, and recently found highly satisfying result of adapting Fujinon XF 27mm F2.8 that requires relatively low effort.
      Here's resulting article explaining what can you do with electronically dead Fujinon XF 27mm F2.8 lens to bring it back to life in much more compact frame of Industar 50-2.
      Alternatively you can also use adapted Fuji XF 27mm F2.8 lens on other APS-C cameras like Sony or Canon.

      Modern Fujinon lens have electronical parts that may fail due to water damage or other reasons. In most cases it worths pay for repair, but sometimes repair costs are too high and its cheaper to just buy another sample. This Fujinon XF 27mm F2.8 sample was electronically broken, so I've found relatively simple way to convert it into fully manual focus lens.

      I took my brand new X-T20 out of the box today, so this is a post from an ignorant Newby and apologies for that.
       
      After switching the manual focus switch on the front of the camera, it still won't go into manual focus unless I also switch the Auto Mode Selector Lever on the top of the camera off "A".
       
      I think I must be doing something wrong. Surely I must be able to leave the camera in auto mode but still manually focus it? Or have I been playing around with something in the menu and switched something off by mistake?
