SETTING THE ISO ON THE FUJI X PRO 2 – MY WAY, MAYBE YOUR WAY OR MAYBE NOT YOUR WAY – BUT I DO NOT LIKE THE DEFAULT METHOD

One comment

The Xpro2 takes some getting used to.  Even though it is like the Xpro1, there are real menu differences and physical control differences.  I thought I was liking the ISO dial but after many hours of use, I do not.

Here is what I have done:

Go to the camera Icon = shooting settings
Scroll down to Auto ISO
Under Auto ISO you have 3 setting. Auto 1, Auto 2 Auto 3
These setting allow you to set the ISO range
Auto 1 on my camera is set 200 ISO to 400 ISO
Auto 2 on my camera is set 200 ISO to 800 ISO
Auto 3 on my camera is set 200 ISO to 3200 ISO

I find that these are my most common ISO to settings  I work as low as I can all the time so Auto 1 is my go to

Accessing these Auto setting can be a pain in the ass and Iso can not be found in the quick menu options.  Hopefully that will change with a firmware upgrade.

The buttons on the back of the camera have several options. The right side button is for white balance.  The Left side button is for white balance.  The upper button on the wheel is for Drive. The bottom button for focus points.

I have taken the right side button, (white balance) and by holding it down for a few seconds it allows me to change what the button represents and I have changed it to read AUTO ISO.  When pressed it brings up the 3 options I changed and allows me to select one of the Auto Iso setting, either 1,2 or 3.  I stay on Auto 1 most of the time depending on conditions and if I need a really high Iso I can change the dial on the top of the camera from Auto to what ever Iso I desire.  i.e. 25000???????
