  • Steve, I thought of the same. Great minds. :-). So I was holding the camera in my hand all the time to ensure the OIS was functioning the way it should in real life. Besides I had to monitor the ...
  • Ref postings from Digital Shuttbug (Steve) and Wyldberi above regarding battery life: To help understand the relationship between OIS and battery life, I did a test today. I charged a battery for a ...
  • Steve, Interesting observation about the whirring sound. I never noticed it before. If the OIS is spun up all the time then it is even more puzzling why the image in the VF is not stabilized when ...
  • The 18-55 is an excellent lens especially considering it is labelled as a kit lens. I have no issues with the aperture ring. Like many others, I also wish it had aperture markings so I can see at a ...
  • I checked but no luck. IS Mode is not one of the functions that we can assign a button to. I just got off the phone with Fuji. The agent is going to report the problem to Japan and let's hope in ...
  • Bob, Great to know we have similar needs and both come to similar conclusions. So we cannot be that wrong. ;-) I have 3 batteries now. I am getting 2 more and an additional charger (without the ...
  • I have done shutter speeds from below 1/Focal Length to many times over. I did not see any degradation in image quality, contrary to what some have reported on the Internet. Perhaps Fuji has fixed ...
  • Mike, please see my test result above. I also have 3 batteries but I am getting 2 more. On my X-T1, I use EVF only which turns on only when I put my eye next to it. I do not review my photos and I ...
  • Thank you everybody for the reply. I have done a lot of testing using both my 18-55 and 55-200. Here is my conclusion. 1. The image in the VF stabilizes when the shutter is half pressed if IS Mode ...
  • I just keep holding the shutter halfway so it is a very long time but the image in the viewfinder does not stabilize if IS Mode 2 is used, contrary to what the manual says. (See my new posting ...
  • The manual (Page 82) says that the OIS should be turned on when the shutter is half pressed but it does not.
  • Thanks, Bob. I have the Canon also. The gyro needs time to spin up to speed for the IS to work. Based on the statement in the manual, I am sure Fuji also intended to have their OIS to turn on when ...
  • Thank you everybody for the reply. Whether Fuji OIS is better or worse than other image stabilization systems, etc., the behavior of the X-T1 OIS Mode 2 is not the same as described in the manual. ...
  • Thank you for your reply and DigitalShutterBug's. I also tested my observation on my friend's X-T1 and saw the same issue. On page 82 of the manual, it says: "SHOOTING ONLY: Image stabilization ...
  • Created discussions OIS Issue with X-T1
    When I look through the viewfinder and with the OIS mode in the menu set to Continuous, the image in the viewfinder is very stable. When I set the OIS mode to Shooting Only and half press the ...
  • Great shots. They give me some ideas of what to expect. Thank you for sharing. Shii
  • Yes, I am taking my X-T1 and the 18-55 for Peru but I am not sure if I need my longer Canon gear while cruising on Amazon. Silica pads to keep the camera dry sounds like a good idea. Look forward ...
  • No, our cruise starts on Aug 31. Perhaps you could kindly let me know your experience before I leave for Peru on Aug 24. Thank you in advance.
  • I tried all your links you posted recently. All of them came back with the message: "Sorry, this file is infected with a virus Only the owner is allowed to download infected files." Shii
  • To Great Bustard: Agree that we need to consider "the whole". When I said "Noise is determined at the pixiel level", I was primarily thinking of image cell design which sets the floor level of...
