    Hi everyone,

    I have been having issues with the X-E2 shutter speed, on Aperture priority mode, since I updated from firmware version 1 to 4.01.

    When I set the camera to aperture priority mode so that I can control my aperture manually and let the camera decide on shutter speed automatically (this is what I use the most) the shutter speed never goes faster than 1/180 is often quantised to 1/160 and 1/56, which makes this mode useless.

    I tried switching between electronic and mechanical shutter and problem persists. Only solution I found was to shoot fully manual, when I choose both aperture and shutter speed manually, then I can go below 1/180. But it doesn't really work for my stile of shooting. It used to work perfectly before the firmware update.

    Has anyone experienced this? Is there a solution to that?

    Thanks for your attention,

    Are you using an Auto ISO setting, if so check what the minimum shutter speed, ISO etc are set to in that.

    Spudl, thanks for your quick response.

    I have tried both Auto ISO and fixed ISO (at 200) and none of these settings fixed the problem.

    Maybe try a higher ISO, say 3200, and see if that helps. Other than that I can't help, sorry!

    I'll try that just out of curiosity, but I think it should work properly at any ISO setting. The photos I make in daylight are way overexposed for any aperture larger than f/8. I think 3200 ISO would make it worse...

    I appreciate your help anyway.

    1/180s is a bit of a clue. Maybe the camera thinks you have the flash popped up, or a flash installed on the hotshoe?

    I'll look into that clue, but I never use flash on that camera.

    Thanks,

    Have you tried resetting the camera?

    You are a genius! Worked like a charm.

    I am still puzzled by what might have resulted in that weird behaviour... I'll post if I find out what the problem was.

    Thank you all for the help.

    I have been called many names, some not so nice but this is a first for me. Glad it worked out. Happy shooting.
