Use [BKT SELECT] to choose a bracketing type and the [AE BKT], [ISO BKT], [FILM SIMULATION BKT], [WHITE BALANCE BKT], and [FOCUS BKT] options to choose the bracketing amount for each type.
|[BKT SELECT]||Choose from [AE BKT], [ISO BKT], [FILM SIMULATION BKT], [WHITE BALANCE BKT], [DYNAMIC RANGE BKT], and [FOCUS BKT].|
Adjust exposure bracketing settings.
[FRAMES/STEP SETTING]: Choose the number of shots in the bracketing sequence ([FRAMES]) and the amount exposure is varied with each shot ([STEP]).
[1 FRAME/CONTINUOUS]: Choose whether the shots in the bracketing sequence are taken one at a time ([1 FRAME]) or in a single burst ([CONTINUOUS]).
[SEQUENCE SETTING]: Choose the order in which the shots are taken.
|[ISO BKT]||Choose from [±⅓], [±⅔], and [±1].|
|[FILM SIMULATION BKT]||Choose the three film simulation types used for film simulation bracketing ([FILM SIMULATION]).|
|[WHITE BALANCE BKT]||Choose from [±1], [±2], and [±3].|
The following settings are available when [FOCUS BKT] is chosen for [BKT SELECT].
Do not adjust zoom during shooting.
The supplied flash does not fire.
Focus and [FRAMES]/[STEP]
The relation between focus and the options chosen for [FRAMES] and [STEP] is shown in the illustration.
Focus proceeds from the starting position toward infinity.
Small [STEP] values translate to small changes in focus, larger values to larger changes.
Regardless of the option chosen for [FRAMES], shooting ends when focus reaches infinity.
Choose a shutter release delay.
|[2 SEC]||The shutter is released two seconds after the shutter button is pressed. Use to reduce blur caused by the camera moving when the shutter button is pressed. The self-timer lamp blinks as the timer counts down.|
|[10 SEC]||The shutter is released ten seconds after the shutter button is pressed. Use for photographs in which you wish to appear yourself. The self-timer lamp blinks immediately before the picture is taken.|
If an option other than [OFF] is selected, the timer will start when the shutter button is pressed all the way down. The display shows the number of seconds remaining until the shutter is released. To stop the timer before the picture is taken, press [DISP]/[BACK].
Stand behind the camera when using the shutter button. Standing in front of the lens can interfere with focus and exposure.
The self-timer turns off automatically when the camera is turned off.
[INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING]
Configure the camera to take photos automatically at a preset interval.
Highlight [INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING] in the ([SHOOTING SETTING]) tab and press [MENU]/[OK].
Use the selector to choose the interval and number of shots. Press [MENU]/[OK] to proceed.
Use the selector to choose the starting time and then press [MENU]/[OK]. Shooting will start automatically.
Interval timer photography cannot be used at a shutter speed of [B] (bulb) or with multiple exposure photography. In burst mode, only one picture will be taken each time the shutter is released.
Use of a tripod is recommended.
Check the battery level before starting. We recommend using the AC-9VS AC power adapter supplied with the VPB-XH1 vertical power-booster grip.
The display turns off between shots and lights a few seconds before the next shot is taken. The display can be activated at any time by pressing the shutter button.
To continue shooting until the memory card is full, set the number of shots to ∞.
Choose the shutter type. Choose the electronic shutter to mute the shutter sound.
|[MECHANICAL SHUTTER]||Take pictures with the mechanical shutter.|
|[ELECTRONIC SHUTTER]||Take pictures with the electronic shutter.|
|[E-FRONT CURTAIN SHUTTER]||Reduces the lag between the shutter button being pressed and the start of the exposure.|
|[MECHANICAL + ELECTRONIC]||The camera chooses the mechanical or electronic shutter according to shooting conditions.|
|[E-FRONT + MECHANICAL]||The camera chooses the mechanical or electronic front curtain shutter according to shooting conditions.|
|[E-FRONT + MECHANICAL + ELECTRONIC]||The camera chooses the mechanical, electronic, or electronic front curtain shutter according to shooting conditions.|
If [ELECTRONIC SHUTTER], [MECHANICAL + ELECTRONIC], or [E-FRONT + MECHANICAL + ELECTRONIC] is selected, shutter speeds faster than 1/8000 s can be chosen by rotating the shutter speed dial to  and then rotating the rear command dial.
When using the electronic shutter, note the following:
- Distortion may be visible in shots of moving subjects.
- Distortion may also be visible in hand-held shots taken at high shutter speeds; use of a tripod is recommended.
- Banding and fog may occur in shots taken under fluorescent lights or other flickering or erratic illumination.
- When taking pictures with the shutter muted, respect your subjects’ image rights and right to privacy.
When using the electronic front-curtain shutter, note the following:
- Faster shutter speeds are more likely to result in uneven exposure and loss of resolution in out-of-focus areas of the frame.
When the electronic shutter is used, the flash is disabled, sensitivity is restricted to values of ISO 12800–200, and long exposure noise reduction has no effect.
Select [ON] to reduce flicker in pictures and the display when shooting under fluorescent lighting and other similar light sources.
Enabling flicker reduction disables the electronic shutter and increases the time needed to record pictures.
[ISO AUTO SETTING]
Choose the base sensitivity, maximum sensitivity, and minimum shutter speed for the [A] position on the sensitivity dial. Settings for [AUTO1], [AUTO2], and [AUTO3] can be stored separately; the defaults are shown below.
|[MIN. SHUTTER SPEED]||1⁄500–1/4 SEC, [AUTO]||[AUTO]|
The camera automatically chooses a sensitivity between the default and maximum values; sensitivity is only raised above the default value if the shutter speed required for optimal exposure would be slower than the value selected for [MIN. SHUTTER SPEED].
If the value selected for [DEFAULT SENSITIVITY] is higher than that selected for [MAX. SENSITIVITY], [DEFAULT SENSITIVITY] will be set to the value selected for [MAX. SENSITIVITY].
The camera may select shutter speeds slower than [MIN. SHUTTER SPEED] if pictures would still be underexposed at the value selected for [MAX. SENSITIVITY]. If [AUTO] is selected for [MIN. SHUTTER SPEED], the camera will automatically choose a minimum shutter speed approximately equal to the inverse of the lens’ focal length, in seconds (for example, if the lens has a focal length of 50 mm, the camera will choose a minimum shutter speed in the neighborhood of 1⁄50 s). The minimum shutter speed is not affected by the option selected for image stabilization.
|[CONTINUOUS]||Image stabilization on.|
|[SHOOTING ONLY]||Image stabilization enabled only when the shutter button is pressed halfway (focus mode [C]) or the shutter is released.|
|[OFF]||Image stabilization off; appears in the display. Choose when the camera is mounted on a tripod or otherwise fixed in place.|
The setting selected with the lens image stabilization switch, if any, takes priority over the setting chosen with [IS MODE]. Note that vibration or camera sounds may be noticeable as image stabilization takes effect.
[MOUNT ADAPTER SETTING]
Adjust settings for M-mount lenses connected using an optional [FUJIFILM M MOUNT ADAPTER].
Choosing a Focal Length
If the lens has a focal length of 21, 24, 28, or 35 mm, choose a matching option in the [MOUNT ADAPTOR SETTING] menu.
For other lenses, select option 5 or 6 and use the selector to enter the focal length.
Choose from [STRONG], [MEDIUM], or [WEAK] options to correct [BARREL] or [PINCUSHION] distortion.
Color Shading Correction
Color (shading) variations between the center and edges of the frame can be adjusted separately for each corner.
To use color shading correction, follow the steps below.
Rotate the rear command dial to choose a corner. The selected corner is indicated by a triangle.
Use the selector to adjust shading until there is no visible difference in color between the selected corner and the center of the image. Press the selector left or right to adjust colors on the cyan–red axis. Press the selector up or down to adjust colors on the blue–yellow axis.
To determine the amount required, adjust color shading correction while taking photos of blue sky or a sheet of gray paper.
Peripheral Illumination Correction
Choose from values between –5 and +5. Choosing positive values increases peripheral illumination, while choosing negative values reduces peripheral illumination. Positive values are recommended for vintage lenses, negative values to create the effect of images taken with an antique lens or a pinhole camera.
To determine the amount required, adjust peripheral illumination correction while taking photos of blue sky or a sheet of gray paper.
Create a photograph that combines two exposures.
After rotating the drive dial to [S], select [ON] for [MULTI EXPOSURE] in the ([SHOOTING SETTING]) tab and press [MENU]/[OK].
Take the first shot.
Press [MENU]/[OK]. The first shot will be shown superimposed on the view through the lens and you will be prompted to take the second shot.
To return to Step 2 and retake the first shot, press the selector left. To save the first shot and exit without creating a multiple exposure, press [DISP]/[BACK].
Take the second shot, using the first frame as a guide.
Press [MENU]/[OK] to create the multiple exposure, or press the selector left to return to Step 4 and retake the second shot.
To end multiple exposure photography, select [OFF] for [MULTI EXPOSURE].
Multiple exposures cannot be recorded via tethered shooting ([PC CONNECTION MODE]).
