Fujifilm X-T20 with extremely stupid brightness restriction in manual mode

It's unbelievable, I wonder whether the engineers actually try their cameras.

Of course the base Iso in DR400 mode is called Iso 800 (instead of Iso 200) as Fujifilm underexposes by 2 EV in DR400 mode. But when you are in manual mode and use a long exposure time, Fujifilm still forces you to choose at least Iso 800 for the jpg brightness when you want the DR400 tonemapping. So the images are too bright. It's extremely stupid. So one needs to adjust the brightness in post-processing (for example with Fuji's in-camera raw processing feature) or choose the DR100 tonemapping (which leads to too dark shadows or too bright highlights, so one needs to edit the raw file).
