Choose whether to compress RAW images.
|UNCOMPRESSED||RAW images are not compressed.|
|LOSSLESS COMPRESSED||RAW images are compressed using a reversible algorithm that reduces file size with no loss of image data. The images can be viewed in Capture One Express Fujifilm, RAW FILE CONVERTER EX powered by SILKYPIX, FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO, or other software that supports “lossless” RAW compression. Quality is the same as UNCOMPRESSED, but the resulting files are anywhere from about 30 to 90 percent of their uncompressed size.|
|COMPRESSED||RAW images are compressed using a “lossy”, non-reversible algorithm. Quality is about the same as UNCOMPRESSED, but the resulting files are anywhere from about 25 to 35 percent of their uncompressed size.|

In conditions in which AUTO fails to produce the desired results—for example, under certain types of lighting or in close-ups of portrait subjects—use custom white balance or choose a white balance option suited to the light source.
White balance is adjusted for flash lighting only in AUTO, WAWHITE PRIORITY, AAAMBIENCE PRIORITY, and g modes. Turn the flash off using other white balance options.
White balance options can also be accessed via shortcuts (aShortcut Options).
Fine-Tuning White Balance
Pressing MENU/OK after selecting a white balance option displays a fine-tuning dialog; use the focus stick (focus lever) to fine-tune white balance.
To exit without fine-tuning white balance, press DISP/BACK after selecting a white balance option.
You cannot tilt the focus stick diagonally when fine-tuning white balance.
Custom White Balance
Choose k, l, or m to adjust white balance for unusual lighting conditions using a white object as a reference (colored objects can also be used to lend photos a color cast). A white balance target will be displayed; position and size the target so that it is filled by the reference object and press the shutter button all the way down to measure white balance (to select the most recent custom value and exit without measuring white balance, press DISP/BACK, or press MENU/OK to select the most recent value and display the fine-tuning dialog).
- If “COMPLETED !” is displayed, press MENU/OK to set white balance to the measured value.
- If “UNDER” is displayed, raise exposure compensation and try again.
- If “OVER” is displayed, lower exposure compensation and try again.
Adjust white balance to match the color temperature of the light source.
Color temperature can be adjusted to make pictures “warmer” or “colder” or deliberately produce colors that differ radically from those in real life.
Select k in the white balance menu.
The option currently selected for color temperature will be displayed.
Edit the color temperature using the focus stick (focus lever) and press MENU/OK.
A fine-tuning dialog will be displayed.
You can also adjust color temperature in increments of 10 K by rotating the rear command dial.
Choose from values of from 2500 to 10000 K.
To exit without fine-tuning white balance, press DISP/BACK after choosing a color temperature.
Highlight a fine-tuning amount using the focus stick.
The changes will be applied. The selected color temperature will appear in the display.
Color temperature is an objective measure of the color of a light source, expressed in Kelvin (K). Light sources with a color temperature close to that of direct sunlight appear white; light sources with a lower color temperature have a yellow or red cast, while those with a higher color temperature are tinged with blue.
With reference to a tone curve, adjust the appearance of highlights or shadows, making them harsher or softer. Choose higher values to make shadows and highlights harsher, lower values to make them softer.
|HIGHLIGHTS||-2 to +4|
|SHADOWS||-2 to +4|
Adjust color density.
Sharpen or soften outlines.
HIGH ISO NR
Reduce noise in pictures taken at high sensitivities. Choose high-er values to reduce noise and smooth outlines, lower values to leave outlines visible.
Increase definition while altering tones in highlights and shadows as little as possible. Choose higher values for increased definition, lower values for a softer effect.
The additional processing required at settings other than 0 increases the time need to save each shot.
LONG EXPOSURE NR
Select ON to reduce mottling in long time-exposures.
The additional processing required when ON is selected increases save times.
LENS MODULATION OPTIMIZER
Select ON to improve definition by adjusting for diffraction and the slight loss of focus at the periphery of the lens.

This option may have no effect with some lenses.
Store settings for up to 6 lenses, or choose OFF to disable corrections for focal length, distortion, color shading, and peripheral illumination.
Choosing a Focal Length
Use the focus stick (focus lever) 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 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.
