Set shutter dial to setting above or below 180 (I can't remember what they are). Use the left/right arrow keys (multicontroller) to select 180 on the screen/viewfinder.

I think they may have fixed this with the most recent firmware update, but when I had my X-E1, the 'soft' settings were not persistent. That is, every time you left shooting mode (such as to review a picture), you had to go back and set it to 180 again, using the left/right keys. Major annoyance, and that sort of thing is a good part of why I got rid on my Fuji.

That and using the self timer also gets lost which are to me as well a great annoyance. It's a point and shoot mindset. Keep the shutter speed set where I left it or at least give us the option in the menu to do so.
