Query for Fuji X-T2 users.

This topic has been archived, and won't accept reply postings.

I know there are a few X-T2 users on here, so maybe someone could answer this query, my having drawn a blank elsewhere (including the manual!). Pressing the front command dial toggles between ISO and shutter speed and then turning it controls one of these. I want to disable this since I have regularly pressed it  by mistake and messed up shots - I am totally happy using the dedicated dials on the top of the camera for ISO and shutter speed. Is there a way of doing this (other than building some sort of guard over the dial myself!)

Other than this niggle, I am really happy with my upgrade to an X-T2

Doesn't seem to allow me to disable the dial on the X-T2. It just allows me to switch which command dial does aperture and which does shutter speed (along with the ISO).

on XT-3, the menu allows me to disable.

Have you got the latest XT-2 firmware?

I think so, but I'll check!

you are not the only XT-2 owner with this issue:

But this says March-2017 firmware allows you to turn-off Command Dial (Item-4)?

But that update (I have a later one anyway) only allows you to turn off shutter speed control using the command dial, not ISO. This seems a bit daft - if one, why not the other? I'm surprised Fuji havn't fixed this, given how good they usually are with updates. The annoying thing is that I often have ISO set to Automatic, having set a button to allow me to switch between three Automatic settings I find useful which I have programmed. In Automatic, one accidental click of the command dial can switch to "High" ISO which almost invariably produces something wildly overexposed and useless.

I think I may be heading for a gaffer tape solution!
