Focus and FRAMES/STEP
The relation between focus and the options chosen for FRAMES and STEP is shown in the illustration.
CStarting focus position
- 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.
AUTO: In AUTO mode, the camera calculates FRAMES and STEP automatically.
Navigate to ASHOOTING SETTING > DRIVE SETTING > BKT SETTING in the photo menus, highlight FOCUS BKT, and press MENU/OK.
Select AUTO and choose an INTERVAL.
The view through the lens will be displayed.
Focus on the nearest end of the subject and press MENU/OK.
The selected focus distance appears as A on the focus distance indicator.
The same focus range can be chosen by focusing on the farthest end of the subject first.
Focus on the farthest end of the subject and press DISP/BACK.
The selected focus distance (B) and focus range (A to B) appear on the focus distance indicator.
Instead of pressing the DISP/BACK button, you can press MENU/OK and select A again.
The camera will calculate values for FRAMES and STEP automatically. The number of frames will appear in the display.
CH HIGH SPEED BURST
Select the frame rate used when the drive dial is rotated to CH (continuous high speed). The display frame rate when the electronic shutter is used is 40 fps, or 60 fps in 1.29× crop mode.
|20fps(1.29X CROP) R 1||13fps(1.29X CROP) R 1||10fps(1.29X CROP) R 1|
|15fps 2||10fps 3|
Available with electronic shutter only.
13 fps with electronic shutter.
8.9 fps with electronic shutter.
CL LOW SPEED BURST
Select the frame rate used when the drive dial is rotated to CL (continuous low speed).
* 6.7 fps with electronic shutter.
Each time the shutter button is pressed, the camera takes three shots, varying exposure each time, and combines them into a single picture. The resulting photograph preserves details in highlights and shadows (aHDR).
ADV. FILTER SETTING
Choose the filter used when the drive dial is rotated to ADV. (aAdvanced Filters).
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 1.29× crop, reducing the picture angle by an amount equivalent to increasing lens focal length by 1.29×; the crop is shown by a frame in the display.|
|OFF||The 1.29× crop is disabled.|
The HIMAGE 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 sELECTRONIC SHUTTER is selected in CH(high speed burst) drive mode (aSHUTTER TYPE).
Flash photography is disabled.
Choose a shutter release delay.
|R2 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.|
|S10 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.
SAVE SELF-TIMER SETTING
If ON is selected, the setting chosen for SELF-TIMER will remain in effect after the camera is turned off.
If ON is selected, the self-timer lamp will light during self-timer photography. Select OFF when shooting night scenes or in other situations in which you would prefer that the lamp remain unlit.
Choose how the camera meters exposure (aMetering).
Choose the shutter type. Choose the electronic shutter to mute the shutter sound.
|tMECHANICAL SHUTTER||Take pictures with the mechanical shutter.|
|sELECTRONIC SHUTTER||Take pictures with the electronic shutter.|
|tE-FRONT CURTAIN SHUTTER||Take pictures with the electronic front curtain shutter.|
|uMECHANICAL + ELECTRONIC||The camera chooses the mechanical or electronic shutter according to shooting conditions.|
|vE-FRONT + MECHANICAL||The camera chooses the mechanical or electronic front curtain shutter according to shooting conditions.|
|wE-FRONT + MECHANICAL + ELECTRONIC||The camera chooses the mechanical, electronic, or electronic front curtain shutter according to shooting conditions.|
If sELECTRONIC SHUTTER, uMECHANICAL + ELECTRONIC, or wE-FRONT + MECHANICAL + ELECTRONIC is selected, shutter speeds faster than 1/8000 s can be chosen by rotating the shutter speed dial to 8000 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 (aSHUTTER VOLUME), 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.
The following restrictions apply when the electronic shutter is used:
- Sensitivity is restricted to values of ISO 12800–125.
- Long exposure noise reduction has no effect
- The flash will not fire unless pixel-shift multi-shot is enabled.
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.
Highlight WITH IN-CAMERA TIMER and press MENU/OK.
Interval-timer settings will be displayed.
If you are using a remote release with its own timer, select WITH EXTERNAL TIMER. You will be returned to the shooting display, where you can start interval-timer photography using the remote release.
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 “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-5VJ AC power adapter.
To view the pictures taken so far, press the a button during interval-timer photography. To return to the shooting display, press the a button again or wait until the start of the next interval.
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.
The indicator lamp blinks green whenever the displays are off during interval-timer photography.
To continue shooting until the number of shots taken equals the number of exposures remaining at the time interval-timer photography started, set the number of shots to ∞.
INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING EXPOSURE SMOOTHING
Select ON to automatically adjust exposure during interval-timer photography to prevent it changing dramatically between shots.
Large changes in subject brightness may make exposure appear erratic. We recommend that you choose shorter values for INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING > INTERVAL with subjects that brighten or dim dramatically during shooting.
In manual mode (mode M), exposure smoothing is only available if an A (auto) option is selected for sensitivity.
INTERVAL PRIORITY MODE
If ON is selected, the camera will adjust shutter speed during interval-timer photography to ensure that exposures are not longer than the interval between photographs.
This option takes effect only when shutter speed is set to A (auto).
Reduce flicker in pictures and the display when shooting under fluorescent lighting and other similar light sources.
|ALL FRAMES||Flicker reduction is applied to all frames continuous shooting frame rate reduces.|
|FIRST FRAME||Flicker measurement is taken prior to the first frame only and the same reduction amount is applied to all subsequent frames that flicker may occur.|
|OFF||Flicker reduction disabled.|
Flicker reduction increases the time needed to record pictures.
OFF is selected for FLICKER REDUCTION when the electronic shutter is used.
Flicker reduction is not available during movie recording.
FLICKERLESS S.S. SETTING
Select ON to allow shutter speed to be fine-tuned to reduce flicker caused by LED lighting and the like.
This option takes effect only in modes S and M.
Turn image stabilization on or off.
|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; x appears in the display.|
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.
ISO AUTO SETTING
Choose the base sensitivity, maximum sensitivity, and minimum shutter speed for use when ISO sensitivity is set to A (auto). Settings for AUTO1, AUTO2, and AUTO3 can be stored separately (aAUTO).
Zoom in on your subject during shooting using ultra-high-resolution digital zoom.
|2.0x||Take pictures using 2× zoom. O- and P-size pictures are automatically cropped to size Q.|
|1.4x||Take pictures using 1.4× zoom. O-size pictures are automatically cropped to size P.|
|OFF||Digital teleconverter off.|
Image quality may drop when the digital teleconverter is used.
The digital teleconverter cannot be used when a 1.29× crop is selected during burst photography or when ON is selected for SPORTS FINDER MODE.
Choose how the camera combines shots to create a “multiple exposure”.
Adjust multiple exposure settings and record multiple exposures.
|OFF||Multiple exposure mode disabled.|
The camera can combine up to nine exposures.
PIXEL SHIFT MULTI SHOT
The camera takes a series of 20 shots, using in-body image stabilization to move the image sensor by half a pixel with each shot and recording each frame in RAW format. Using specialized computer software, the frames can then be combined to create a high-resolution RAW picture.
Navigate to ASHOOTING SETTING in the photo menus, highlight PIXEL SHIFT MULTI SHOT, and press MENU/OK.
Choose a value for INTERVAL.
- We recommend setting INTERVAL to SHORTEST.
- If you intend to use the flash with every shot, choose a value for INTERVAL long enough to allow the flash to charge between shots.
Press the shutter button to start shooting.
- The shots are recorded to the memory card in RAW format.
- To minimize vibration, use the self-timer or a remote release.
Combine the shots on a computer.
- The shots can be combined using FUJIFILM Pixel Shift Combiner.
- To save high-resolution RAW pictures in other formats, use Capture One Express for Fujifilm, Capture One for Fujifilm, or Capture One Pro, available from Capture One A/S. FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO and RAW FILE CONVERTER EX powered by SILKYPIX cannot be used for this purpose.
Visit the websites below to learn more about or download the following computer software:
Pixel-shift multi-shot photography can be performed via tethered shooting. For this purpose, use FUJIFILM Pixel Shift Combiner.
The flash will synchronize with the shutter at shutter speeds of 1/25 s or slower.
The following limitations apply to the use of the pixel-shift multi-shot option:
- Pixel-shift multi-shot photography can only be performed using the electronic shutter.
- Sensitivity is restricted to a maximum of ISO 1600. Choosing higher values or a setting of AUTO results in a sensitivity of ISO 1600, while lower values remain unchanged.
- The only option available for RAW RECORDING is LOSSLESS COMPRESSED.
- Pictures taken with C (AF-C) selected for focus mode will be shot in focus mode S (AF-S). Pictures taken with S (AF-S) or M (manual) selected are shot in the chosen focus mode.
- If the subject or camera moves during shooting, the desired results may not be achieved when the shots are combined.
- ASHOOTING SETTING > FLICKER REDUCTION is automatically set to OFF.
- The value selected for exposure compensation applies to all 20 shots.
Pictures taken using the pixel-shift multi-shot option are indicated by a pixel-shift multi-shot icon in full-frame playback (aThe Playback Display).
