Choose a file format and compression ratio.
|Lower compression ratios are used for higher-quality images.

|Record RAW images only.
The Function Buttons
To toggle RAW image quality on or off for a single shot, assign RAW to a function button (aAssigning Roles to the Function Buttons). Press the button once to select the option in the right column, again to return to the original setting (left column).
|Option currently selected for IMAGE QUALITY
|Option selected by pressing function button to which RAW is assigned
Choose whether to compress RAW images.
|RAW images are not 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 RAW FILE CONVERTER EX powered by SILKYPIX, FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO, or other software that supports “lossless” RAW compression.
Simulate the effects of different kinds of film, including black-and-white (with or without color filters). Choose a palette according to your subject and creative intent.
|Standard color reproduction. Suited to a wide range of subjects, from portraits to landscapes.
|A high-contrast palette of saturated colors, suited to nature photos.
|Enhances the range of hues available for skin tones in portraits while preserving the bright blues of daylight skies. Recommended for outdoor portrait photography.
|Soft color and enhanced shadow contrast for a calm look.
PRO Neg. Hi
|Offers slightly more contrast than hPRO Neg. Std. Recommended for outdoor portrait photography.
PRO Neg. Std
|A soft-toned palette. The range of hues available for skin tones is enhanced, making this a good choice for studio portrait photography.
|Film movies using a palette that features subdued colors and deep shadows.
|Take black-and-white photos with rich gradation and outstanding sharpness.
|Take pictures in standard black and white.
|Take pictures in sepia.
* Available with yellow (Ye), red (R), and green (G) filters, which deepen shades of gray corresponding to hues complementary to the selected color. The yellow (Ye) filter deepens purples and blues and the red (R) filter blues and greens. The green (G) filter deepens reds and browns, including skin tones, making it a good choice for portraits.
Film simulation options can be combined with tone and sharpness settings.
Film simulation settings can also be accessed via shortcuts (aShortcut Options).

B & W ADJ.ab(Warm/Cool)
Add a reddish or bluish tinge (warm or cool color cast) to monochrome pictures taken with the aACROS or bMONOCHROME film simulation.
|+9 — +1
|Higher positive values equate to a redder color cast.
|Normal monochrome (grayscale).
|-1 — -9
|Lower negative values equate to a bluer color cast.
Add a film grain effect. Select an amount (STRONG or WEAK) or choose OFF to turn film grain off.
COLOR CHROME EFFECT
Deepen colors in shadows. Select an amount (STRONG or WEAK) or choose OFF to turn the effect off.
For natural colors, choose a white balance option that matches the light source.
|White balance is adjusted automatically.
|Measure a value for white balance.
|Choose a color temperature.
|For subjects in direct sunlight.
|For subjects in the shade.
|Use under “daylight” fluorescent lights.
|Use under “warm white” fluorescent lights.
|Use under “cool white” fluorescent lights.
|Use under incandescent lighting.
|Reduces the blue cast typically associated with underwater lighting.
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 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.
The focus stick (focus lever) does not tilt diagonally.
Custom White Balance
Choose k, l, or m to adjust white balance for unusual lighting conditions. White balance measurement options will be displayed; frame a white object so that it fills the display 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.
k: Color Temperature
Selecting k in the white balance menu displays a list of color temperatures; highlight a color temperature and press MENU/OK to select the highlighted option and display a fine-tuning dialog, then highlight the desired value and press MENU/OK again. The selected color temperature will be shown 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. You can match color temperature to the light source, or choose options that differ sharply from the color of the light source to make pictures “warmer” or “colder.”
Control contrast. Choose lower values to increase contrast when shooting indoors or under overcast skies, higher values to reduce loss of detail in highlights when photographing high-contrast scenes. Higher values are recommended for scenes that include both sunlight and deep shade, for such high-contrast subjects as sunlight on water, brightly-lit autumn leaves, and portraits taken against a blue sky, and for white objects or people wearing white.
Mottling may appear in pictures taken at higher values. Choose a value according to the scene.
If AUTO is selected, the camera will automatically choose either V100% or W200% according to the subject and shooting conditions. Shutter speed and aperture will be displayed when the shutter button is pressed halfway.
W200% is available at sensitivities of from ISO 320 to ISO 12800, X400% at sensitivities of from ISO 640 to 12800.
D RANGE PRIORITY
Reduce loss of detail in highlights and shadows for natural-looking results when photographing high-contrast scenes.
|Contrast is adjusted automatically in response to lighting conditions.
|Adjust dynamic range by a large amount for very high-contrast scenes.
|Adjust dynamic range by a smaller amount for moderately high-contrast scenes.
|Contrast reduction off.
WEAK is available at sensitivities of from ISO 320 to ISO 12800, STRONG at sensitivities of from ISO 640 to 12800.
