Hello,

I am a dentist and have been trying to use this gorgeous camera for the dental photography. Yet, I can't seem to figure out how to use it. Please note I am a novice in photography and tried to watch several youtube videos, but still in vain.

Can anyone help me to set it up right?

Again I am using Fuji xPro2 with Fuji XF 80mm F2.8 macro lens and bolt ring flash.

It's either too dark, or too fuzzy/blurry that it's never a quality that I would like to see.

My setting was

F stop: 22mm

ISO: 100

Shutter Speed: 250

I am willing to purchase anything that would give me a good result.

Thank you in advance for any help!

I take it you mean F22 and not 22mm? With those settings it's not a surprise if your photos are underexposed. Also, at such a small aperture you'll get diffraction which will make your photos less sharp. I'd say keep the aperture between F8-F13, maybe go down to F16 at the lowest if needed. And put your ISO at 200 which is base ISO on the X-Pro2.
