Fuji X-T1 Custom Settings | Clifton Beard

I have previously posted my custom settings and tips for Fuji’s X-T1 camera and the X-E1 based on my user experience and the regular updates that Fujifilm give us with firmware.  A big firmware update became available on 18th December 2014 in which the X-T1 gained some very useful options, including an electronic shutter which goes to 1/32000 sec, so it will be easily possible to shoot the 56mm f1.2 and other fast glass, wide open in any conditions without over exposure.  It is a smart shutter too, so if you have the mechanical and electronic shutter option set, flash can still be used when the shutter speed falls within that of the mechanical shutter. The X-T1 is a fairly simple and traditional camera to use once set up due to the direct access dials, aperture ring, function buttons and set of 7 custom settings presets that can be programmed in. It is definitely worth spending some time setting up the camera in the menus to make the best of what is there and to enhance the shooting experience by making functions and settings available at the touch of a button rather than by delving into menus.  What follows are my suggestions that can either be copied or used simply as an idea for someone keen to program their own settings. Within the Fuji X-cameras there are 7 custom settings available that are set up in the shooting menu and then accessed via the “Q” menu button very rapidly.  If you leave the cursor on the top left position in the Q menu by default, that simply allows scrolling through custom settings 1-7 as soon as the Q button is pressed.  You can of course move the cursor to tweak any of the individual settings within each custom setting.  If you make any changes here during a shoot (for example, you change film simulation or the NR setting), the camera will go back to the original specified settings that you programmed in after it is switched off or another custom setting is selected……
