Well, just need to keep your eye on it. When you half press the shutter, it shows you all the exposure parameters it's using in the viewfinder. Also, if you don't mind a 2 stop underexposure, why did you have ISO 3200 set as the limit? If you wanted shutter speed above all else, I'd think you'd select to max out the ISO.
Also, if you don't mind correcting for underexposure and such in post, you can use Auto ISO in manual mode and select the shutter speed to be 1/100s and it'll never deviate from that. Of course, you...Show more →
Yeah, I just didn't think to monitor shutter speed after setting the Min value, figuring it wouldn't go below what I set (even if it meant improper exposure). Now I know.
And I didn't have time to 'chimp' so didn't catch it until reviewing them at home later.
As for why I didn't raise the ISO limit, it's mostly because I didn't know the camera was programmed to override settings. I'd have been okay at ISO 6400. My comment about the 2-stop underexposure related to how *I'd* prefer the camera handled things in this situation -- i.e., have the camera say "Hey, dummy, you set Minimum Shutter Speed to 1/100 sec but that's not fast enough so here's your underexposed shot" versus "Hey, dipshit, 1/100 sec minimum shutter is too fast so I've corrected it for you ... you're welcome!" I appreciate Fuji engineers have the shooter in mind. However, with an underexposed image file I can do something about it in post. With the blur created by simply giving me a "proper" exposure, I can't do much about that later.
Ideally, there would either be a user-selectable "Override Minimum Shutter Speed if Necessary" option *or* a simple warning on screen to indicate that a camera-defined proper exposure is outside selected ISO and Shutter values; at least then the user knows it's occurring and can either dial in EC or bump the ISO or go manual or whatever.
It should also be noted that I knew from sample shots before the performances began that 1/100 sec was likely a stop too fast for some shots, but I chose it anyway with this notion of preference for underexposed files (without knowing how the X-E2 would handle it). Shadow detail is so much easier to recover/manage than blown highlights, which are pretty much unrecoverable when the histogram gets that far to the right.
