XZ-1 Lock-and-Recompose shooting
Apr 25, 2012

After months of struggling with the camera's inability to lock exposure and recompose, I want to post my newly discovered solution: simultaneous AE-Lock/AF-Lock can be achieved by half-pressing the shutter button while in spot-metering mode.

While it would be ideal to control auto-exposure and auto-focus independently, I reserve such stringent requirements for DSLRs, 645s, and my Fuji X100.

The important point here is that it is in fact possible to use a 'lock and recompose' method with the XZ-1. To do so, I combine spot-metering and the TR (Focus Tracking).

This great little camera is now vastly more compatible with my old shooting habits.
