A few set up questions !

Recommended Posts

Hello

Rec'd my X-T3 today and have been slowly working throught the menu to get things how I like them !

I've got a few questions and would be grateful if you could answer them !?

Firstly - after taking an image I like to view it in the viewfinder rather than the rear monitor - however, the image doesn't pop up into the viewfinder unless I press the playback button on the rear of the camera - is it possible to acheive this automatically ?

2 - When I am looking at am image I may wish to check the focus - I know I can press in the rear command dial and turn this to zoom out - can I change it so that the front dial does this ?

3 - When going in and out of the menu it doesn't take you back to the last option you were looking at so you have to scroll through all the menus again - can this be changed ?!

Finally, is there a website that does a really good walkthrough of all the settings ?

In particular I don't really understand the DRO settings and the D range priority settings ?

thanks if you got this far and even more thanks if you can provide an answer !

1.) You should be able to pick what you want to appear in the evf and on the rear screen separately. The display back button (lower back of cam) allows you to choose from a few variations of evf/screen setup.

2.) I don't believe you can swap the 2 controls for that purpose.

3.) In the main menu you have (User settings?) an option for MY menu. This is where you can save your most used options.

4.) There are several setup guides and videos - here's one (I haven't watched it).

5.) If you shoot raw, you can shoot at fixed DR 100% and control it in your editor.

If you only shoot jpg, try setting auto. At 100% is base. If you want to shoot at 200% you need to set an ISO of 400 or more. If you want to shoot at 400% you need a min ISO of 800. So maybe try auto ISO and auto DR.
