I marvelled at the Fiat 500 when it was reengineered into it’s modern day guise and the rest of the world did too. Fujifilm X100V Battery Life. The X-T4 can do .5 Highlight and Shadow adjustments (please, Fujifilm, update the X100V to allow this, too), and that’s probably closer to what you need to compensate for the increased or decreased contrast due to selecting the far ends of Clarity.

Lightroom rebuilds a preview based on a guess of what you want the shot to look like and it’s never anywhere near. The Fuji camera and lens combination is simply amazing but it is not a DSLR. The X100V offers incredible color performance all the way to up to 51200. Also, if you go lower than -3 Clarity, consider increasing Highlight and Shadow by one to compensate.

The X100V is my first Fuji camera and I was very perplexed by this behaviour. Does the X100V live up to the hype? What focus issues have you encountered and is it easy to see focus with either of the two viewfinder options? Hi Camera seems to like having a hard/straight line to lock onto for focus? Thanks, in advance for your help!

Weekend of wandering planned to get some practice in, looking forward to next week when camera will be coming to the office with me all week. Hi Russell, I’m on the road for a few weeks and that’s quite a monumental task … Do not use the cross hair type focus method, use the box method and all should be fantastic. it is a lovely camera and it feels so nice in your hand too, if i’d have known just how much they are selling for yours may not have made it round the room in Bristol : ), If you’ve shown the pictures first without mentioning the camera used, no one will ever think it was captured nicely with such a small body camera… I think the photographer took more role than the equipment, just like Bjorn Borg plays with the old wooden racket…, I just bought Olympus Pen E-PL2 as my second camera (beside 5D mkII) and you just make me feel bad… since E-PL2 doesn’t works good on high ISO (at least in my experience). FYI, I typically just use the jpeg out of the camera as it’s pretty darn good but just in case I need RAW I have it set to (jpeg+RAW). I am quite intrigued with this camera and interested to see what the X10 will be like as well. I rarely adjust any image adjustment parameter from standard with the X100. 4K recording works with oversampling and no sensor crop, which means you get the same quality as with the X-T3. (Examples are great too!). When it is too bright for the parameters I have set I use the inbuilt 3 stop ND filter.

I never use lens caps so the lens hood affords the lens a bit more protection. Any thoughts on sharpness would be most appreciated. I think you’re perfectly fine selecting any of the Clarity options, but for portraits I’d consider using minus Clarity, unless you’re want a dramatic portrait look. Do you know how to sort this out please? For example, if you prefer Fuji’s classic film tones, you can change the WB shift to -2 Red to enhance the greens. Am shooting AF-S and doesn’t seem to make much difference between having the “Corrected AF Frame” on or off…, Help – any light you can shed on the situation? LG Thomas.

In the manual Fujifilm states that Clarity increases or decreases “definition” while minimally altering highlights and shadows. What exactly Clarity does with each software is slightly different, but the gist of it is that it increases mid-tone contrast, while (mostly) leaving the highlights and shadows untouched. It is for this reason I have always found compact cameras to be frustrating with slow start up times coupled with slow and inaccurate auto focus. I like shooting in Aperture Priority mode. Thanks Lloyd. ( Log Out /  The X100 changed the way I took pictures and is my favourite camera that I’ve ever owned. It’s the unthreatening and unobtrusive nature of the camera that allows me a more candid interaction with my subjects.
