What are the X-T5 boost mode EVF settings actually doing?
1

Hi all, long time X-T user professionally, skipped the X-T4 though. Have always had the camera in boost mode, but I see there's three different kinds of boost mode now.

One that claims to boost EVF resolution, and then two that appear to be about frame rate: one labelled '100P' and one labelled '200P'.

What are each of these actually doing?

Is the resolution of the EVF reduced if you have it in any mode other than 'resolution boost'? And to what degree is the resolution boosted? My eyes can't really see a difference.

What does the P stand for in the frame rate boost modes? Again, I can't really tell any difference between any of the boost modes in terms of frame rate, except for when I have it in 100P or 200P there's almost always some weird lights at venues that strobe slowly in the EVF, fading up and down at a very distracting steady pace. Flicker reduction usually gets rid of that in the actual photos but they continue to pulse in the EVF.

I had been using the 100P mode for shoots until I got so fed up of the strobing lights that I switched to resolution boost mode and the lights stopped strobing in the EVF. So I'll stick with that mode now.

But still don't really know what they're meant to be doing!
