Fuji X-T3 Setting Live Colour Histogram

Hi Fujilovers!

I read somewhere that the histogram in shooting mode can be set to colour. Does anyone know how to do this in the menu please?

The RGB histogram is actually an overlay. Keep the Disp/Back button pressed for 3 secs then allocate a key press or touch screen swipe to the histogram. When you want the RGB histogram to appear press a key or swipe to show overlay.

Re: Fuji X-T3 Setting Live Colour Histogram

Thanks Steve. I sold my X-H1 for the X-T3 as I wasn’t using it for video. I love the X-T3 for its size and shooting experience.

For a live histogram in color, assign that function to a function button. I have it assigned to the front function button. Press once and the live histogram appears, press again and it goes away.

See X-T3 manual page 204.

By the way, the electronic level can be assigned to a function button also. It provides left-right and forward-backward level indications so you can use wide angle lenses without lens distortion if you want.

Both of these are different from similar functions that can be assigned to the EVF and LCD. The electronic level in the display setup menu is just a horizon line that turns green when it is exactly horizontal. The live histogram in the display setup menu is luminance-only.  These settings are on manual page 198.
