Scene selection is not available when V is selected for movie mode.
Adjust settings for the various drive modes.
|Choose the settings used when the drive dial is rotated to [BKT1] or [BKT2] (a[BKT1 SETTING]/[BKT2 SETTING]).|
|[CH HIGH SPEED BURST]||
Select the frame rate used when the drive dial is rotated to [CH] (high-speed burst). The display frame rate when the electronic shutter is used is 40 fps, or 60 fps in 1.25× crop mode.
* Available with electronic shutter only.
|[CL LOW SPEED BURST]||
Select the frame rate used when the drive dial is rotated to [CL] (low-speed burst).
|[Adv. FILTER 1 SELECT]
[Adv. FILTER 2 SELECT]
|Choose the filter used when the drive dial is rotated to [Adv.1] or [Adv.2] (aAdvanced Filter Options).|
[BKT1 SETTING]/[BKT2 SETTING]
Choose bracketing settings for the [BKT1] and [BKT2] positions on the drive dial.
The following options are available when the drive dial is rotated to [BKT1] or [BKT2].
The following options are available when O[AE BKT] is chosen for [BKT SELECT].
The following options are available when W[ISO BKT] is chosen for [BKT SELECT].
|[FILM SIMULATION BKT]||Choose the three film simulation types used for film simulation bracketing (a[FILM SIMULATION]).|
|[WHITE BALANCE BKT]||
The following options are available when V[WHITE BALANCE BKT] is chosen for [BKT SELECT].
The following settings are available when Z[FOCUS BKT] is chosen for [BKT SELECT].
Do not adjust zoom during shooting.
The built-in flash will 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.
[SPORTS FINDER MODE]
Take pictures using the crop in the center of the display. Choose this option for pictures of athletes, birds, and other moving subjects.
|[ON]||Pictures are taken using a 1.25× crop, reducing the picture angle by an amount equivalent to increasing lens focal length by 1.25×; the crop is shown by a frame in the display.|
|[OFF]||The 1.25× crop is disabled.|
The H[IMAGE QUALITY SETTING] > [IMAGE SIZE] item in the shooting menu is fixed at P.
The sports finder is not available in modes that offer an electronic shutter.
To reduce the lag between your pressing the shutter button all the way down and the resulting picture being recorded to the memory card, the camera starts shooting with the electronic shutter when the shutter button is pressed halfway and saves a series shots starting just before the shutter button is pressed the rest of the way down.
Pre-shot photography is available only when s[ELECTRONIC SHUTTER] is selected in [CH] (high speed burst) drive mode.
Choose a shutter release delay.
|R[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.|
|S[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 A ([SHOOTING SETTING]) tab and press [MENU]/[OK].
Use the focus stick (focus lever) to choose the interval and number of shots. Press [MENU]/[OK] to proceed.
Use the focus stick 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.
We recommend using an AC-5VG AC power adapter.
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 how the camera meters exposure.
The selected option will only take effect when G [AF/MF SETTING] > [FACE/EYE DETECTION SETTING] is [OFF].
|The camera instantly determines exposure based on an analysis of composition, color, and brightness distribution. Recommended in most situations.|
|The camera meters the entire frame but assigns the greatest weight to the area at the center.|
|The camera meters lighting conditions in an area at the center of the frame equivalent to 2% of the total. Recommended with backlit subjects and in other cases in which the background is much brighter or darker than the main subject.|
|Exposure is set to the average for the entire frame. Provides consistent exposure across multiple shots with the same lighting, and is particularly effective for landscapes and portraits of subjects dressed in black or white.|
Choose the shutter type. Choose the electronic shutter to mute the shutter sound.
|t[MECHANICAL SHUTTER]||Take pictures with the mechanical shutter.|
|s[ELECTRONIC SHUTTER]||Take pictures with the electronic shutter.|
|u[MECHANICAL + ELECTRONIC]||The camera chooses the mechanical or electronic shutter according to shooting conditions.|
If s [ELECTRONIC SHUTTER] or u [MECHANICAL + ELECTRONIC] is selected, shutter speeds faster than ¼ 000 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 (a[SHUTTER VOLUME]), respect your subjects’ image rights and right to privacy.
The following restrictions apply when the electronic shutter is used:
- Sensitivity is restricted to values of ISO 12800–160
- Long exposure noise reduction has no effect
- The flash cannot be used
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.
Flicker reduction is not available during movie recording.
Choose from the following image stabilization options:
|L [CONTINUOUS + MOTION]||Image stabilization on. If [+ MOTION] is selected, the camera will adjust shutter speed to reduce motion blur when a moving objects are detected.|
|M [SHOOTING + MOTION]||As above, except that image stabilization is performed only when the shutter button is pressed halfway (focus mode [C] only) or the shutter is released. If [+ MOTION] is selected, the camera will adjust shutter speed to reduce motion blur when a moving objects are detected.|
|m [SHOOTING ONLY]|
|[OFF]||Image stabilization off. Choose this option when using a tripod.|
[+ MOTION] has no effect when sensitivity is set to a fixed value, and may also be unavailable at some other combinations of settings. The effect may vary with lighting conditions and the speed at which the object is moving.
This option is available only with lenses that support image stabilization.
Adjust the camera’s sensitivity to light.
|Sensitivity is automatically adjusted in response to shooting conditions.|
|–||Adjust sensitivity manually. Selected value is shown in display.|
|Choose for special situations. Note that mottling may appear in pictures taken at [H], while [L] reduces dynamic range.|
Sensitivity is not reset when the camera is turned off.
High values can be used to reduce blur when lighting is poor, while lower values allow slower shutter speeds or wider apertures in bright light; note, however, that mottling may appear in pictures taken at high sensitivities.
Choose the base sensitivity, maximum sensitivity, and minimum shutter speed for [AUTO1], [AUTO2], and [AUTO3]. Defaults are shown below.
|[MIN. SHUTTER SPEED]||[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.
[MOUNT ADAPTER SETTING]
Adjust settings for M-mount lenses connected using an optional [FUJIFILM M MOUNT ADAPTER].
Choosing a Focal Length
Choose a lens number from [LENS 1] through [LENS 6] and enter the lens’ true 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 focus stick (focus lever) to adjust shading until there is no visible difference in color between the selected corner and the center of the image.
- Press the focus stick left or right to adjust colors on the cyan–red axis.
- Press the focus stick 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.
