Record Screens & Menus

Please excuse the poor quality of these screen captures. The X-M1 kit does not include an AV output cable, therefore we had to photograph the display screen.

Record - SR auto GIF.gif
When shooting in SR+ Auto mode, you'll see a bit of data on the screen to help you figure out the X-M1's settings. The date and time appear briefly along the bottom of the screen before blinking off. The SR+ icon in the lower left corner and the battery icon in the right corner remain on the screen. You'll see the flash mode in the upper left corner and the still image resolution setting and amount of space remaining on the memory card in the upper right corner, along with the movie resolution icon.

When you press the Disp button on the back of the camera, you can select Off from the popup menu to remove all of the icons from the screen. Press Disp again and select I2 from the popup menu to return the icons to the screen.

Record - manual GIF.gif
In addition to all of the icons that are available in SR+ mode, in Manual mode you'll see the shutter speed, aperture setting, and ISO setting along the bottom of the screen. Use the command dial and sub-command dial to make changes to the shutter speed and aperture settings. Along the left side of the screen, you'll see the EV setting.

Record - program mode GIF.gif
When shooting in Manual mode or Program mode, you again can press the Disp button to change the types and numbers of icons on the screen. The items that are available through the Disp button are:

  • I1 - In the Information 1 screen, you'll see the shooting mode in the lower left corner, along with the EV setting on the left and the ISO setting, and battery charge in the lower right corner. In Manual mode you'll also see the shutter speed and aperture settings along the bottom.
  • I2 - In the Information 2 screen, you'll see the same data as in I1, along with the number of photos that can still fit on the memory card and the current still image and video resolution in the upper right corner. The flash mode is in the upper left.
  • Off - The Information Off screen removes all data from the display. When you press the shutter button halfway, though, the data along the bottom of the screen will appear, along with the EV setting along the left side.
  • C - In the Custom screen, you'll see the same data as on the I2 screen, along with a histogram and a 3-by-3 grid. You can change what's displayed in the Custom screen through the on-screen menus and the Disp. Custom Setting command.

Record - mode dial GIF.gif
When you twist the mode dial on the top panel of the Fujifilm X-M1, you'll see a digital representation of the mode dial on the screen, as well as explanations of each shooting mode setting.

Fujifilm included quick access to the X-M1's various settings through a grid of buttons that's available when you press the Q button on the back panel of the camera. The Quick Menu buttons may change a little bit and some buttons may be grayed out, depending on which shooting mode you're using.

Scroll through the Quick Menu's on-screen buttons using the X-M1's four-way button. Once you have a button highlighted, use the command dial to scroll through the various options that are available. The Quick Menu buttons available in Manual shooting mode are:

When you press the right side of the four-way button (marked with WB), you'll see a popup menu along the right side of the window. As you make selections in that popup menu, you'll see additional information appear on the screen, such as the WB Shift screens shown here after you select the Custom command.
