Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing third-stop shutter speeds, part of Fuji X-T1 Tips and Techniques.
- When I turn the aperture ring on my lens…and watch the aperture read-out in the viewfinder,…I see that aperture changes in third stop increments.…So here's my aperture read-out, and as I change…here from F4, going up I get to four, five,…then five, then 5.6, 5.6 is one full stop above…where I started at F4, but there were those two intermediate…apertures in there at one third stop increments.…If I look at the shutter speed dial, I see that shutter…speeds are listed in the traditional one stop intervals.…
Except for 125 and 180, most stops…are a doubling of the previous stop.…15, 30, 60.…However, it is possible for me to dial in…third stop changes of shutter speed.…After setting my desired shutter speed…on the shutter speed dial and then metering,…I can turn the front control wheel…to adjust shutter speed in third stop increments.…So here you can see those intermediate increments…or those intermediate shutter speeds…between the 60th and 125.…
You'll probably only use this when you're working…in full manual mode and have your aperture set…
