Camera Menus

The X-T1 uses Fujifilm's relatively straightforward tabbed menu, which is separated into three logical sections: Shooting, Playback and Set-up. Related options are grouped together into their own 'Setting' sub-page (for example, 'Autofocus Setting'), which reduces the number of top-level items and makes the menus more logical overall.

Overall, once you've configured the X-T1 to your liking, there's little reason to visit the menus again. However there are a couple of items in here that you may want to note, such as Auto ISO setup and flash exposure compensation.

Shooting menu

The shooting menu plays host to the camera's photographic settings, arranged reasonably logically across 5 tabs. Many of the most-used of these options, such as image processing settings, are easily accessible via the Q menu.

Set-up menu

The Set-up menu is generally where you'll find the X-T1's 'set-and-forget' preferences. A number of the most-useful settings can be accessed from the external controls (such as EVF/LCD brightness), meaning you won't need to delve in very often except to format your SD card or initiate sensor cleaning.

Playback menu

The X-T1's playback menu contains an array of editing options. Most importantly in-camera RAW conversion is now top of the list, which makes up for the loss of the RAW button, with other useful playback functions (protection, multi-frame erase etc) available off the first page. Social media addicts shouldn't be disappointed though, as 'Mark for upload to' tags can still be set for Facebook, YouTube, and crucially MyFinePix.com.
