    Can you post your custom XF setting for new user?

    Hi all,

    I just got my XF, it seems the camera is fully customizable.

    It will be great if someone can recommend custom setting button that useful for easier operation and use or other recommended setting for the system

    I shoot mainly people in studio and nature when I have holiday.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    As I understand it, "AF priority" mode means that pushing the primary shutter button (under your right forefinger) won't fire the shutter unless and until the subject is in focus according to the AF sensor.

    "Release priority" means the shutter will fire when you press that button, regardless of whether the subject is in focus per the AF sensor.

    I have mine set to release priority because I have autofocus activation set exclusively to the rear thumb button so that I can do focus and recompose without having to maintain half pressure on the forefinger shutter button in order to hold the selected focus point and without having to worry that the AF point will change when I push the front forefinger shutter release to fire the shutter (because the focus point will no longer be in the center of the AF sensor point once I've focused and recomposed). If I had it set to "AF priority" then the shutter would not fire under this method.
