  • Perhaps this is what you're looking for? p. 215 in the X30 HTML manual, make sure "PREVIEW PIC. EFFECT" is set to ON. I usually shoot in P mode and can see the effect of changes in exp. comp., ...
  • Nice shots, thanks for posting them.  I love to shoot square.  I really like my X30 but one of the things I don't like about it is that you cannot save aspect ratio as part of a custom setting.
  • Ha, thanks!  Apparently, I figured it out just as you were posting.  :-)
  • I figured this out.  :-)  The slowest possible shutter speed is a function of the ISO.  When I set ISO to 100 (and as a consequence DR is set to 100) I can set shutter speed as slow as 30".  When ...
  • Good question.  I don't know the answer. The X30 manual (appendix/specifications) clearly says 30 seconds for non-auto modes.  I tried it on my X30 and could not get below 4" (four seconds) in ...
  • I clicked on the link to your review to read it again and got a warning from Google Blogger: "The blog that you are about to view may contain content only suitable for adults." Is there something ...
  • Replied in X30 Review
    Based in part on your comments in Part I, I splurged and bought the Lensmate thumb grip and soft shutter release.  They are not cheap, but I was surprised and impressed at how much difference ...
  • Sounds like sensor dust, since it is more noticeable as the aperture is stopped down. Sensor dust is the plague of P&S cameras, since you can't easily get access to the sensor, unlike a camera that ...
  • Thanks for the detailed explanation.  I think I understand it, but I am going to have to ponder it for a while and play with the camera some more. Yes, I agree, choosing a custom setting from a ...
  • Created discussions X30: Auto ISO, feature or bug?
    I've run across more strange behavior with my new X30.  Remember that I am new to Fuji, so this may not be strange to experienced Fuji shooters. Auto ISO includes three possible ranges, which I ...
  • Created discussions X30 vs Olympus XZ-2
    I just posted this in a thread on the Olympus forum and realized that I should add it here, too. I am not sure what rules DPR has about crossposting between forums, but here goes. I bought the ...
  • Replied in X30 vs XZ-2
    I bought the Fujifilm X30 a couple of weeks ago to replace my Olympus XZ-2, which I've had for almost two years. I like the XZ-2 but I was looking for something a bit better. On many relatively ...
  • According to DPReview and the Olympus owner's manual, the XZ-2 has a 1/1.7" sensor. I've recently switched from XZ-2 to a Fujifilm X30, which has a 2/3" sensor. I like the Fuji very much, not just ...
  • I believe it's a standard cable.  My Western Digital Passport portable hard drive has the same type cable, and I've interchanged it with my Fuji X30 cable, both seem to work fine with both devices.
  • Thanks for the reply.  I am still unclear about this; as I said, I'm still very new to the Fuji way of doing things. I have ISO set to Auto, so the camera will pick a value within my designated ...
  • Created discussions X30 Q: DR Auto and P Mode
    Another question for you experienced Fuji shooters:  My preferred method of shooting is P Mode, then shifting the program line if needed to whatever f/stop or shutter speed combination I want. I un ...
  • Thanks for the responses.  After confirming that WB on the Q menu does not allow creating a new custom WB, I've put WB on the rear Fn button and Film Simulation on the front control ring. The ...
  • Thanks for your response, I'm sure the X30 operates the same as your HS50. As I learn about the Fuji way of doing things, I am trying differentiate between a) things that are not possible and b) ...
  • Created discussions X30 Q about Q Menu/custom WB
    Another question from a new Fuji user about my new X30. I frequently shoot in museums/galleries.  I carry a small white card so that I can do custom WB adjustments. If I select custom WB from the ...
  • Thanks for the link, I did not know about that site/forum, should be helpful. As for the BASE/custom settings, I think I understand it, but the way Fuji implemented it doesn't make a lot of sense, ...
