Record Screens & Menus

Please excuse the poor quality of some of these screen captures. The Fujifilm X100F kit does not include an AV output cable, therefore we had to photograph the LCD for some of the screen captures.

Record - program GIF.gif
The X100F has no mode dial. This means you'll enter different shooting modes by twisting the shutter speed dial on the top of the camera and the aperture dial on the lens. When both of these dials are set to A (for Automatic), the camera will be in Program mode, indicated by the P in the lower left corner of the screen. (The Fujifilm X100F has no fully automatic shooting mode or scene modes as you may find with beginner level cameras.)

Press the Disp/Back button on the back of the X100F to change the data displayed on the screen in Program mode. 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 and the flash setting.

The first time you press the Disp/Back button, you'll remove all data from the screen. When you press Disp/Back again, the screen will change to show see detailed data about the current settings. Additionally, you'll see a histogram in the upper left corner. Press Disp/Back again to return to the main view.

To enter Aperture Priority mode with the Fujifilm X100F, you'll twist the aperture ring on the lens to a setting other than A, while leaving the shutter speed dial on A. This is the thin ring set tightly to the camera. To help you with your grip on this ring, Fujifilm placed ribbed handles on either side of the lens. Twist the ring until the desired aperture setting number is next to the black mark on the lens.

Once you have selected an f-stop number, an A will appear in the lower left corner of the screen, indicating Aperture Priority mode. The current aperture setting number will appear in blue next to the F in the lower portion of the screen. The other data on the screen remains the same as we discussed above with Program mode. You also can change the data displayed as described above.

Record - shutter speed.jpg
To enter Shutter Priority mode, turn the shutter speed dial on top of the camera to a setting other than A, while placing 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 in red.

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 mode.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. You'll see an M icon in the lower left corner that indicates Manual mode. Both the shutter speed and aperture numbers will appear in blue at the bottom of the screen.

Record - view gIF.gif
Because the Fujifilm X100F has a built-in viewfinder, you can switch between viewfinder mode and LCD mode. Just press the View/Mode button to the right of the viewfinder window, and you'll toggle between the different viewfinder and LCD modes. You can use LCD only mode, Eye Sensor mode, and Viewfinder Only mode. We discussed the Hybrid Viewfinder in more detail on the previous page.

REcord - manual focus GIF.gif
To activate manual focus mode on the X100F, you'll slide the toggle switch on the left side of the camera (as you're holding it) to the M setting. Once you're in manual focus mode, you'll see a focal length grid in the lower portion of the display screen. (If you're using viewfinder mode, the graph will appear there too.) As you twist the focus ring on the lens housing, this graph will change.

You can zoom into the scene in manual focus mode by pressing the command dial on the back of the camera inward (don't spin it). With a magnification of the scene, you can more precisely dial in the focus.

REcord - q menu GIF.gif
Fujifilm has made inclusion of the Q menu (short for Quick menu) a staple of its cameras. Press the Q button on the back panel of the Fujifilm X100F to open the Q menu, which contains shortcuts to the most commonly used settings.

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. In Program 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

If you'd like to customize the options contained in Q menu grid, use Setup menu and the Button/Dial Setting command.

Record - four way GIF.gif
To open popup menus for specific camera functions, press the individual four-way buttons on the back of the X100F. The default shortcut menu settings associated with each of the four-way buttons are:

  • Right Button (function button 4) - White Balance (Auto, Custom 1, Custom 2, Custom 3, Color Temperature, Daylight, Shade, Fluorescent Light-1, Fluorescent Light-2, Fluorescent Light-3, Incandescent Light, Underwater)
  • Bottom Button (function button 5) - Autofocus Points (Single Point, Zone, Wide/Tracking)
  • Left Button (function button 3) - Film Simulation (described below)
  • Top Button - Drive (described below)
We've listed function button numbers that are associated with three of the four-way buttons. This means you can change the default popup menu associated with each of these buttons. Just open the Setup menu and the Button/Dial Setting command to change the options associated with the function buttons. (The Fujifilm X100F has seven function buttons.)

Record - film sim GIF.gif
Press the left four-way button on the Fujifilm X100F to open its default setting for the Film Simulation popup 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 menu GIF.gif
The Drive button is the upper four-way button. This is the only four-way button for which you cannot change the popup menu (as it is not a function button). Under the X100F's Drive button, you'll see icons for each function on the left side of the screen. With an icon highlighted, press the right four-way button to access the sub-menu options in the middle of the screen. The Drive popup menu icons are:

  • Single Image
  • Continuous Shot - Low, Medium, High, Super 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 - Panorama, Multiple Exposure
  • Advanced Filter - (discussed below)
  • Movie
After using the Drive button settings, be sure to select Single Image before you begin shooting photos again, or whatever Drive setting you were using, such as Film Simulation bracket or ISO bracket, will continue to be active. This can be a bit confusing, and it's easy to make a mistake with this menu.

Record - special effect GIF.gif
Advanced Filter under the Drive button unveils the Fujifilm X100F's 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

record - movie main GIF.gif
The first few times you attempt to record a movie with the X100F, you may be a bit confused. There's no dedicated movie recording button with this camera.

Instead, you're going to have to select Movie from the Drive menu (the lowest icon in the popup menu with the movie camera icon). With Movie selected, the screen will look as pictured above, with a movie camera icon in the lower left corner and the ISO setting and battery icon along the bottom of the screen. You can press Disp/Back on the back of the X100F to remove all data from the screen, other than the amount of recording time remaining on the memory card at the top of the screen.

This feature is quite a bit more complicated than it needs to be. Fujifilm should have given the X100F a dedicated movie button or have allowed one of the seven function buttons to be assigned to movie recording, which unfortunately, you cannot do.

Record - movie GIF.gif
Once you've selected Movie from the Drive menu, press the shutter button (just as if you're recording a still image) to start the recording. Press it again to stop the recording. You'll see a red dot in the upper center of the screen while a recording is occurring.

Press the Menu/OK button to access the camera's menu screens. The menu commands are sorted using the tabs along the left side of the screen, which is a nice feature considering how many total commands are available on all of the menu screens. This can make it easier to find the exact command you want.

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 access the commands. (Some commands may be grayed out, depending on which shooting mode you're using.) At the top right corner of the screen, you'll see how many total pages are available under this menu icon.

All of the commands listed below are available in Program mode. The first/uppermost tab for the Fujifilm X100F is the Image Quality Setting tab (marked with I.Q.). The I.Q. menu has three pages of commands:
