INTRO

So you have just bought the new X-T20, taken a few pics, played with the menus, but somehow feel lost or not sure how to best utilise some of the options available.

IMAGE QUALITY SETTING

IMAGE SIZE>L3:2
This setting is pertinent to JPEG files and does not affect RAF files. The 3:2 aspect ratio is the same as traditional 35mm film while 16:9 is the ratio of HD devices such as modern TV’s and smartphones. Selecting an aspect ratio of 1:1, which is square is reminiscent of some old medium format cameras (Hasselblad, Bronica, etc) and is a nice choice for B&W portraits or just to make an artistic statement.

IMAGE QUALITY>FINE+RAW
I personally use FINE+RAW while a lot of you may probably prefer just RAW. And believe it or not, I am aware of a couple of pro photographers who shoot exclusively in JPEG. If you do decide to go the JPEG route, please know that you can toggle RAW image quality ON or OFF for a single shot, by assigning RAW to a function button or adding it in the Q menu. ….
