Fujifilm Released Tutorials – Focus Modes, Fujinon XC vs XF, Fujinon MKX, Printing on Instax, and Custom Display Options

Fujifilm released some tutorial videos that I have summarized and posted below. They are all pretty brief and entry-level, but they could be good for people new to photography or Fujifilm cameras.

Focus Modes

  • AF-S
    • Single point AF mode
    • Green box in focus
    • Red box failed to focus and you might be too close
  • AF-C
    • Continuous AF mode
  • M
    • Manual focus
  • Focus Mode selector
    • Most cameras have the focus mode selected on the front
    • GFX cameras have the selector on the back
    • X100 has it on the front edge
    • X-A7 has it in the menus

Fujinon XC vs XF Lenses

  • Fujifilm XC and XF lenses are for X-Mount
    • XC affordable lenses without aperture rings
    • XF all have aperture rings
    • The 35mm f/2 XF and XC are the same exact lenses optically
    • XF lenses use metal
    • XC lenses are plastic including the mount
    • XF lenses use better AF motors
    • XC lenses are a little slower to focus
    • Some XF lenses are weather-resistant, but XC is not

Fujinon MKX Lenses

  • MKX
    • 18-55mm f/2.9
    • 50-155mm f/2.9
    • Both are the same size and weight
    • Longer than XF lenses with a similar aperture
    • These lenses are for series movie making
    • Focus is always done manually when shooting video because you want to make sure you’re perfectly sharp
    • MKX lenses have 200 degrees of rotation to go from minimum focus to infinity that moves smooth and silently which lets you be precise about where you set your focus
    • MKX lenses are also parfocal so they maintain their point of focus while zooming, which camera lenses won’t do, but it keeps them smaller and lower-priced
    • MKX lenses have gears to help you focus them

Printing on Instax Directly From Camera

  • Menu button – Wrench – Connection settings – Instax – Enter your Instax Serial Number – Default Password 1111
  • Find a photo in playback – Press Menu – Scroll Down to the Third Page – Instax Printer Prints
  • Select print area and hit ok

Custom Display Options

  • GFX and X cameras can be customized
  • EVF and rear display can be modified
  • You can have a really detailed display or a minimalist one
  • Display back scrolls through your options for your EVF/LCD and one of the modes is clean
  • Menu – Wrench – Screen Setup – Display Custom Settings
  • Whatever has a checkmark will be on the screen
  • The frame outline is good to tell you where the edge of the frame is when it is dark and it is the last option
