Removing Lens Caps
Remove lens caps as shown.
Lens caps may differ from those shown.
Attaching Lens Hoods
When attached, lens hoods reduce glare and protect the front lens element.
Lenses with Aperture Rings
At settings other than A, you can adjust aperture by rotating the lens aperture ring (exposure modes A and M).
Selecting ON for MOVIE OPTIMIZED CONTROLoL disables the aperture ring.
When the aperture ring is set to A, rotate the command dials to adjust aperture (aCOMMAND DIAL SETTING).
The Aperture Mode Switch
If the lens has an aperture mode switch, aperture can be adjusted manually by sliding the switch to Z and rotating the aperture ring.
Lenses with No Aperture Rings
The method used to adjust aperture can be selected using DBUTTON/DIAL SETTING > APERTURE SETTING. When an option other than AUTO is selected, aperture can be adjusted using the front command dial.
Aperture control defaults to the front command dial, but can be reassigned to the rear command dial using DBUTTON/DIAL SETTING > COMMAND DIAL SETTING.
Lenses with O.I.S. Switches
If the lens supports optical image stabilization (O.I.S.), the image stabilization mode can be chosen in the camera menus. To activate image stabilization, slide the O.I.S. switch to ON.
Manual Focus Lenses
Slide the focus ring to the front for autofocus.
For manual focus, slide the focus ring to the back and rotate it while checking the results in the camera display. The focus distance and depth-of-field indicators can be used to assist manual focus.
Note that manual focus may not be available in all shooting modes.
The Depth-of-Field Indicator
The depth-of-field indicator shows the approximate depth of field (the distance in front of and behind the focus point that appears to be in focus). The indicator is displayed in film format.
- Use a blower to remove dust, then gently wipe with a soft, dry cloth. Any remaining stains can be removed by wiping gently with a piece of Fujifilm lens-cleaning paper to which a small amount of lens-cleaning fluid has been applied.
- Replace the front and rear caps when the lens is not in use.
Power Zoom Lenses
Zoom can be adjusted on power zoom lenses using the zoom/focus control ring, zoom button, or zoom ring.
Adjusting zoom while the lens is wet makes it easier for water to find its way inside the lens. Wipe any water from the lens before adjusting zoom.
A XF18-120mmF4 LM PZ WR lens is used here for illustrative purposes.
