I was talking to a colleague the other day and he seemed unaware that the Q-menu was customisable. I offered to write a short blog on it (based upon the X-T1, the X-Pro-1 is very similar).
Not sure what I’m talking about? What is the Q-menu? Basically the Q button on the rear of the camera (Fuji X-T1 X-Pro1) provides fast access to a number of settings arranged in a grid as below. This grid is called the Q-menu.
Here is my current Q-menu (although it is always in a state of flux). I don’t use all of the functions and my aim was to have the items I need to change often quickly accessible.
You will see my first two items are to do with the focus system – to change between single point and group of points and the second item to switch on and off face recognition. I need quick access to White Balance as I change it between “Auto” and a custom setting often (this will be the subject of my next post).
So, how is the Q-menu customised?
Go to the following menu option (by pressing the centre “Menu” button and using the cursors).
Press the menu button again and the Q-menu with be displayed in Edit mode.
Use the cursor/arrow buttons to select the item to change. and press the centre menu button.
Select the function you require, confirming with the centre/menu button and using the back button to cancel.
Once finished press the back button again.
And there you are….
