Record Screens & Menus

Please excuse the poor quality of these screen captures. The Fujifilm X-Pro2 kit does not include an AV output cable, therefore we had to photograph the LCD.

Record - main GIF.gif
When shooting in Program Auto mode -- indicated by the P in the lower left corner of the screen -- you can change the data displayed on the screen by pressing the Disp/Back button on the back of the Fujifilm X-Pro2.

The main view includes the shutter speed, aperture, ISO setting, and battery indicator along the bottom of the screen. On the right side is the DR setting. The upper part of the screen includes the resolution and image quality setting, as well as the number of photos and video recording time remaining on the memory card. On the left side is an EV graph.

Press Disp/Back, and you'll remove all data from the screen. Press Disp/Back again to see detailed data about the current settings, as well as an autofocus graph and a histogram.Press Disp/Back a third time to return to the main view.

The Fujifilm X-Pro2 does not have a fully automatic shooting mode or scene modes.

Record - q menu GIF.gif
As with most advanced Fujifilm cameras, the X-Pro2 includes a Q button on the back panel on the far right, giving you access to the Q menu (short for Quick menu), which contains shortcuts to the most commonly used settings. Although the graphical grid format of the Q menu works best with a touch screen LCD -- which the X-Pro2 does not have -- it is an easy to use option for changing settings.

To use the Q menu grid, press the four-way buttons to highlight the portion of the grid you want to change. Then spin the command dial on the back of the camera to change the setting.

You also can customize the options contained in the grid of the Q menu through the Setup menu and the Button/Dial Setting command. In Program Auto mode the Q button settings are (starting on the top row, going from left to right):

  • Select Custom Setting - Base, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, C6, C7

Record - white balance GIF.gif
You can press one of the individual four-way buttons to open a shortcut menu. You can change the default shortcut menu settings associated with the right, left and bottom buttons, because they are function buttons 4, 5, and 6. Just open the Setup menu and the Button/Dial Setting command to change the options associated with the function buttons. The default shortcut menu settings for the four-way buttons on the Fujifilm X-Pro2 are:

  • Right Button - White Balance (Auto, Custom 1, Custom 2, Custom 3, Color Temperature, Fine, Shade, Fluorescent-1, Fluorescent-2, Fluorescent-3, Incandescent Light, Underwater)
  • Bottom Button - Autofocus Points (Single Point, Zone, Wide/Tracking)
  • Left Button - Film Simulation (described below)
  • Top Button - Drive (described below)

Record - film sim GIF.gif
Most advanced Fujifilm cameras, including the X-Pro2, offer a Film Simulation mode. You can apply film related special effects to your photos through this mode.

  • Standard/Provia
  • Vivid/Velvia
  • Soft/Astia
  • Classic Chrome
  • Pro Neg. Hi
  • Pro Neg. Standard
  • Acros - Standard, Ye Filter, R Filter, G Filter
  • Monochrome - Standard, Ye Filter, R Filter, G Filter
  • Sepia
Record - drive GIF.gif
The Drive button is the upper four-way button for the X-Pro2, and you cannot change the default shortcut menu setting for this button. After pressing the Drive button, you'll see a popup menu with icons along the left side. Highlight an option to see additional settings, which will appear in the middle of the screen.

  • Single Image
  • Continuous Shot - Low, High
  • AE Bracket - -/+/-1/3, +/-2/3, +/-1, +/-1 1/3, +/-1 2/3, +/-2
  • ISO Bracket -
    -/+1/3, -/+2/3, -/+1
  • Film Simulation Bracket
  • White Balance Bracket - -/+1, -/+2, -/+3
  • Dynamic Range Bracket
  • Multiple Exposure
  • Advanced Filter - (discussed below)
After using the Drive button settings, be sure to select Single Image before you begin shooting photos again, or the Drive setting you've selected, such as AE bracket, will continue to be active.

Record - advanced filter GIF.gif
When you select Advanced Filter under the Drive button with the Fujifilm X-Pro2, you'll have access to a few different special effect shooting options.

  • Toy Camera
  • Miniature
  • Pop Color
  • High Key
  • Low Key
  • Dynamic Tone
  • Soft Focus
  • Partial Color - Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple

The Fujifilm X-Pro2 has no mode dial, so you'll switch to the different modes using the aperture ring on the lens and the shutter speed dial on the top of the camera.

When you're in Aperture Priority mode, as pictured here, you'll see an A icon in the lower left corner of the screen. To enter Aperture Priority mode, turn the aperture ring to a setting other than A, and leave the shutter speed dial at A (automatic). The f-stop setting that you pick on the aperture dial will appear in the middle of the lower part of the screen with an F next to the number.

Record - shutter priority.jpg
To enter Shutter Priority mode, you'll turn the shutter speed dial to a setting other than A and you'll place the aperture ring on the A setting. The icon in the lower left corner of the screen will change to an S for Shutter Priority, and the current shutter speed will appear next to the S icon. The shutter speed number is a denominator of a fraction to indicate the shutter speed. So if the shutter speed setting is 1000, the actual shutter speed is 1/1000th of a second.

Record - manual.jpg
To enter Manual mode, turn the shutter speed dial to a setting other than A and the aperture ring to a setting other than A. Both the shutter speed and aperture will appear along the bottom of the screen. The M icon in the lower left corner indicates Manual mode.

Record - EV Dial GIF.gif
One important graph to pay attention to with the Fujifilm X-Pro2 is the EV graph, which will appear on the left side of the screen in most shooting modes. It displays the current EV setting.

You'll want to pay attention to this setting because the EV dial on the top panel of the camera hangs over the edge of the panel, meaning you may occasionally knock it out of place without realizing it. So this graph can help you realize this dial is out of place before you ruin an entire set of photos.

Record - viewfinder GIF.gif
When you press the View/Mode button to the right of the viewfinder window to toggle among the different viewfinder display modes, you'll see the messages here appear on the LCD screen when you're in a mode where the LCD is active, including Eye Sensor mode and LCD Only mode. The LCD will be blank in Viewfinder Only mode, so you'll only see a text message on the screen inside the viewfinder window. (The way the Hybrid viewfinder works is discussed in more detail on the previous page.)

Record - manual focus GIF.gif
With the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and kit lens we tested, you can operate the camera's manual focus by flipping the toggle switch in the lower right corner of the front of the camera to M. Then you can turn the focus ring on the lens (near the front of the lens). Keep turning the focus ring until the scene is sharply focused. A line graph will appear along the bottom of the screen, indicating the focal length.

To check the sharpness of the focus in manual focus mode, press the command dial on the back of the camera inward (don't spin it). You'll then see the scene magnified on the screen, allowing you to more precisely dial in the focus.

Record - movie recording.jpg
If you're looking for a button with a red dot to begin recording a movie with the X-Pro2, you can stop looking. Instead of a dedicated video recording button, Fujifilm assigned movie recording to the Fn1 button on the top of the camera to the right of the shutter button. Just press this button to start and stop a video recording. If you don't want to record movies, you can reassign the Fn1 button to another function.

When you start a movie recording, you'll see the current video resolution and the amount of time remaining in the video recording along the top of the screen. The movie camera icon will appear at the bottom left.

Record - image quality menu.jpg
Press the Menu/OK button to open the X-Pro2's menu screens. Fujifilm redesigned this model's menu screens a bit versus some other mirrorless cameras from the manufacturer, attempting to sort the commands a little better. This change does make it a little easier to find the exact command you want from the various screens.

Fujifilm uses the tabs along the left side of the screen to sort the various commands. So you can use the four-way buttons to scroll through the tabs, highlighting the one you want to use. Then press the right button of the four-way buttons to highlight the commands. (Some commands may be grayed out, depending on which shooting mode you're using.)

All of the commands listed below are available in Program mode. The first/uppermost tab is the Image Quality Setting tab (marked with I.Q.), and the commands, which are listed across three pages, are:
