INSTANT AF

The role of the instant AF button varies with focus mode.

  • In manual focus mode (MF/M), the camera will focus using instant AF when the button is clicked.
  • In single (AF-S/S) and continuous (AF-C/C) AF modes, you can click the button to refocus using autofocus.
  • For stable focus, select OFF for PRE-AF.

Select manual focus mode (MF/M) when using INSTANT AF with X-Pro2.

If the lens features a depth-of-field indicator, rotate the focus ring to AF.

AE LOCK

The role of AE lock varies with exposure mode (P, S, A, or M).

  • In modes P (program AE), S (shutter-priority AE), and A (aperture-priority AE), it can be used to prevent exposure changing unpredictably.
  • AE lock is not available in manual exposure mode (mode M). If you find that exposure changes unpredictably, try selecting PREVIEW EXP./WB for SCREEN SETTING > PREVIEW EXP./WB IN MANUAL MODE in the setup menu.

X-Pro2 supports AE Lock only in manual focus mode (MF/M) or when OFF is selected for AF/MF SETTING > FACE/EYE DETECTION SETTING.

FILM SIMULATION

The film simulation options available vary with the camera connected.

The camera saves the last option selected when you exit the app or turn the camera off.

The selected option may not produce the desired results with older versions of the camera firmware. Be sure to update to the latest version.

DIGITAL ZOOM

This menu lists the digital zoom settings available with the current camera.

In focus modes other than manual (MF/M), enabling digital zoom sets the focus mode to AF-S and selects OFF and SINGLE POINT for PRE-AF and AF MODE.

Terminating the connection resets digital zoom on the camera to 1.0×. The previously-selected zoom ratio will be restored the next time the camera is connected if “focus mode switching on zoom” is enabled.

The camera zooms in on the focus area selected for single-point AF.

WHITE BALANCE/COLOR TEMPERATURE

The camera saves the last white balance or color temperature selected when you exit the app or turn the camera off.
