Fujifilm X-PRO2: Improve the Autofocus

category: Cameras • 1 min read

  1. Only use the mechanical shutter (MS). The camera will NOT do AF-C with the electronic shutter enable. The camera (X-PRO2, X-T2, X-T1, X-T10) does not focus between each shot when the electronic shutter is enabled.
  2. Set the High Performance Mode to ON. The High Performance Mode is part of the Power Management Settings. The CPU will run at full speed but will decrease the battery life by about 20%.
  3. Turn of the Face Detection. The Face Detection only uses the ‘slower’ Contrast Detection Autofocus (CDAF). The Phase Detection AF (PDAF), which is much faster, only works when the Face Detection is disabled.
  4. Keep the subject, to focus on, within the center of the screen (within the rule of third). The Phase Detection AF sensors are represented by the larger square AF points.
  5. Use the Zone AF and set the size of the zone to about the same size as Phase Detection AF area.
  6. If you are using a Single Point AF, increase the size of the AF-box to the largest box possible and keep it within the area of Phase Detection AF.
