Fujifilm X-PRO2: Program Shift Mode

category: Cameras • 1 min read

P: The Professional Mode

With the X-PRO2 and the X-T2, when the camera is in A for the shutter speed and A for the Aperture, the camera will select the “correct aperture/shutter speed”, aka in Fujifilm speak the Program mode, aka in everyday speak the Professional mode.

  • Use the front wheel to adjust the combination of the aperture/shutter speed, but the exposure will stay the same.
  • Use the Exposure Correction wheel (on top) from +3 to -3 to change the exposure.
  • Turn the camera off to cancel the Program Shift.

ISO Auto Setting

If the camera is in ISO Auto Setting mode with the program shift, the camera will:

  • Use the minimum shutter speed as defined in the ISO Auto Setting 1, or ISO Auto Setting 2, or ISO Auto Setting 3 settings
  • The X-PRO2 and the X-T2 will try to use the widest aperture possible to keep the lowest ISO . If you use the program shift, the camera will set the ISO as high as needed (up to the maximum defined in the settings).

Program shift is not available if one of the following condition happens:

  • If there is a flash that can use TTL/auto mode.
  • If the Dynamic range is set to Auto. Settings of DR100, DR200 or DR400 are OK.
  • If the ‘Face Detection’ mode is enabled.
