p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Help! Fuji X Pro2 Rangefinder question!!


Hello,

So this is my first Fuji/Rangefinder camera and I have a question about the Rangefinder on screen display.

Please view the pic.

There is a square on the Rangefinder, I thought it was the focus display but is not.

Can someone tell me what it is and how do I remove it?

Thanks!

It can be removed in the custom menu 3 - corrected AF Frame = off, if you want, ( on the X-Pro1) but it is a very nice thing to have. If you turn it off you will always have to guess about it and approximate, with variable success likely, especially with the closer subjects.

The solid white square show the focus at infinity. The green shows focus at current distance. The bottom white shows near focus.

It's to compensate for parallax error at near distances.

I find it to be vey useful and wouldn't turn it off as after a few days practice with OVF you will find that you can pretty accurately judge where the focus point is between the 2 for more close up work

WOW, thanks guys.... I'm trying to understand the link sergi2 posted.

This stuff seems confusing to me. I have a RED camera that it is easier to understand than the fuji rangefinder!

One thing to note. The X-Pro 2 is a fine camera but it is not a rangefinder. It is styled like a rangefinder.

I don't want to be that guy who corrects everyone but I think it's a good piece of knowledge to have.
