aufeuer posted a topic in General DiscussionHi all! Long time reader and occassional poster here looking for help. I have the X-T2 combined with the 23mm f1.4 (latest firmware on both), and I've just noticed this very small quirk. In full manual mode (aperture, shutter speed and ISO) with exposure preview on, moving the aperture between f1.4 and f1.6 results in no change in the live view exposure, even though I can see the meter change by 1/3 a stop, and the final images from each show a difference. When I move the aperture to A in a way that forces a value of f1.4, I can see that the preview is brighter than when I set it to f1.4, which tells me f1.4 is incorrectly showing me the exposure for f1.6, and not the other way around. Other 1/3-stop transitions in the entire range properly show a change in the exposure preview, as I would expect. Has anyone else noticed this? Is this normal? I can't tell whether it's for this particular combo only, since the X-T2 is my only ILC body and the 23mm is my only f1.4 lens. Thanks in advance!
Last week I was asked to photograph my 16yr old granddaughter's prom but I wasn't warned that 2 dozen friends and relatives would be in my daughters back garden. I left most of my gear in the car and had to rely on capturing moments when the hordes of P&S, phone and tablet waving mob allowed me a chance of a clear shot. I hate flash and prefer off guard moments anyway - but it was hard work! I managed one backlit shot with reflector outside the the prom hall and even that was rushed as her friends were arriving (XT1S9634). Her BF is actually younger - Proms are recent (& unwelcomed by parents) introduction to the UK - things have changed since I were a lad. Under those conditions I realise these are far from perfect but let me know honestly what you think anyway.
