FujiFilm X100T shooting mode

If you are new to fuji, you might be confused with the shooting mode, because you can't find the regular PSAM mode (Program, Shutter priority, Aperture priority, Manual).

Well, fujifilm cameras specially the X-series, are not just having the cool retro style but how you operates the camera are similar to real photographer back in film era.

You set aperture with physical aperture ring on the lens, change shutter speed with physical dial on the camera, and exposure compensation is set by physical dial also.

On X100T (and like most other X-series camera) the aperture ring and the shutter speed dial are the two things that define your shooting mode.

Program AE (P mode)
The program mode is where the camera adjust shutter speed and aperture automatically for you, it's basically auto mode, but you still can set ISO and white balance manually.

So how to set X100T on program mode? very easy, all you have to do is set both aperture ring and shutter speed to A, you will be in P mode.

Aperture ring : A 
Shutter speed dial : A

Shutter Priority AE (S mode)
Shutter priority is where you set the shutter speed manually and the camera will automatically the adjust aperture for you.

How to set X100T on shutter priority mode? set the aperture ring to A and shutter speed dial on any number you want such as 4000,2000,1000,etc.

Aperture ring : A 
Shutter speed dial : 4000,2000,1000,500,250,etc

Aperture Priority AE (A mode)
Aperture priority is where you set the aperture ring manually and let the camera adjust the shutter speed for you automatically.

How to set X100T on aperture priority mode? set your shutter speed dial to A, and set your aperture to any desired f-number you want, such as 2, 2,8, 4, etc.

Aperture ring : 2, 2.8, 4, 5.6, 8, 11, 16 
Shutter speed dial : A

Full Manual (M mode)
The full manual mode lets you set both aperture and shutter speed manually, the combination of those two will determine the exposure level, so make sure you get the correct exposure or otherwise your images will look too bright or too dark.

Aperture ring : 2, 2.8, 4, 5.6, 8, 11, 16 
Shutter speed dial : 4000,2000,1000,500,250,etc 

For me, most of the time i use aperture priority a lot on X100T as well as on my XE1, i rarely use full manual mode unless i'm in enviroment/situation where the lights is not constantly changing.
