Things are gradually returning to normal (or should I say settling into my new normal with the major life changes I’ve just gone through), and so my new XF/380/40-80mm just arrived. Been fun. I must say the camera controls seem well thought out and a dream to use compared to anything I’ve used before including various dSLR’s.
As far as vibration mode, not sure if I understand how this is setup. I assumed from the documentation that once I enable vibration mode, the camera automatically uses the internal seismic data to trigger the shutter if possible before the count down timer. But the only way I can get this to work is to view the live seismographic display, and then wait until it flat lines. It always seems to take a few seconds to flat line, but as soon as it has flat lined then bumping the camera settles back to flat line very quickly. But if I set it to an 8 second delay, no matter how long I wait the camera always triggers after 8 seconds, unless I’ve first viewed the seismographic display and I’ve seen it flat line.
Also curious if anyone has found it worth while to fine tune AF, especially where it’s a single setting for all lenses.
Anyone tried the hyperfocal thing? Sounds cool. It’s unfortunate they put a special focus bracketing mode into the camera for setting up hyperfocal focusing, but not include a focus bracketing for every day use. Maybe a firmware update ...
Any thoughts as to whether to switch the body battery to the back when it depletes and starts using the body battery and put the fresh one in the body, or just change each out when they need it. I thought they would sort of draw down together, but the back must just switch to the body battery when it’s own battery gets too low.
