About this deal

The lens hood is available in black or silver to suit the finish of your camera, and the hood allows the use of a 49mm UV filter. But some time a few years ago I took a little Sony a5100 on holiday with me and whilst there spent a good chunk of time customising it to work better for me. This is sold on the idea that it lets you frame tighter and see the action as it’s coming into frame in the way the optical viewfinder does. Having a whole other menu for changing the mode of a dial on the fly is a step way too far in terms of customisation for me. There’s no magic bullet here though – this isn’t how I think everyone should set up this camera, and I’m far from claiming to be an expert on setting up Fuji cameras.

If the camera is not currently paired with a smartphone, [Bluetooth/SMARTPHONE SETTING] options will be displayed instead ( a [Bluetooth/SMARTPHONE SETTING]). I've used an X-Pro and X100 for 2+ years and thousands of shots with soft releases installed - no problems so far. In reality, I don't use the Q Menu, which is great because I had to access it all the time on the X100T that came before this camera.I resided myself to the fact that it didn't have one, nor did I know you can hold viewfinder switch to the right another custom button, or what the "command" features meant and how to access them. It is the nature of release mounts to be very shallow, this is because if they were made any deeper adding a soft release button could interfere with the cameras electronics. Everything was just to hand, I don’t remember having to set anything up in the menu at all – or if I did, it was very little. Not all of them, of course, but if you go into the spanner menu within the menu, then go to ‘Button/Dial Settings’ you’ll find a very large and (at least to me) initially overwhelming volume of options for changing what a lot of the buttons do. This is – after quite a bit of faffing, manual leafing and googling – just how I’ve chosen to configure mine.

If you press the little joystick button below it brings up the option to move the focusing spot around the screen. I don’t really like having buttons that don’t do anything on cameras, but couldn’t see anything in the options that appealed to me, and since it’s a fairly hidden button, I felt that I could probably just forget it was there. There’s so much more that can be tinkered with on this camera, not least all the JPEG shooting options that Fuji are famous for, and indeed all the video modes and options.

There are lots of different colours available so you can customise your X100 series camera to your liking with convex and concave options. Disclaimer: Etsy assumes no responsibility for the accuracy, labeling, or content of sellers' listings and products. Some of my friends have dubbed me a philistine for 'wasting' half (more likely (three quarters) of the features available on this camera. On my Sony cameras I find the ability to tap the screen to choose the area to focus really quite useful – so was quite excited to find this on the X100V. You want a very small amount, otherwise you may not be able to remove the button later should you want to.

COMPENSATION]) 2, sensitivity ( [ISO]) 3, or no role ( [NONE]) to [FRONT COMMAND DIAL 2] or [FRONT COMMAND DIAL 3]. If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. So, here’s a selection of the best Fujifilm X100V accessories available now, with many also being suitable for use with older X100 cameras.Just as darkroom techniques were important skills to learn in the days of film, a clear understanding of post-processing is now key to getting the most out of your digital pictures. Every so often I have a moment of weakness re acquiring a digital camera and this was the top of my list; partly from all the good things you've said about it, but all those menus just bring "the barren years" back to me! Some of the modes might become apparent through need, but if they don’t, it doesn’t matter, they’re just there for someone else’s needs. It just feels like options up options upon options to appease as many potential users as possible… which is exactly what I moaned about in my Fuji X100F article.
