Turning off exposure preview on my Fuji X-E3

Nanda Kusumadi has quite a number of tips for configuring a Fuji X-E3. Those tips include using RAW photo recording and turning on 4K video capture (they’re off by default), and one I hadn’t considered: enabling Adobe RGB color space with its wider than sRGB gamut. I prefer not to use some of other the suggestions, such as enabling electronic shutter (it reduces dynamic range).

One setting not mentioned in Nanda’s tips is turning off exposure preview. This is critical when using manual exposure modes with flash. With exposure preview enabled, ambient light is too dark to allow proper composition and focusing when exposure is set for the flash. Turning it off is a smart move to make it easier to shoot with flashes and strobes.
