XCD 4/28P - FAQ

What is a leaf shutter? How does it work?

The leaf shutter is built into the lens structure. Its most significant advantage is that it can achieve flash synchronisation at all speeds (e.g., flash sync speed of up to 1/4000s). This helps capture fast-moving subjects when a flash is used and is also helpful for wide-aperture portraits in strong lighting conditions or outdoors.

For cameras with a focal-plane shutter, when using flash, the shutter speed is limited to 1/125s or 1/250s, posing restrictions for creativity. Due to the special design of the leaf shutter, it generates significantly reduced vibration when triggered, efficiently producing quality shots.

Does the XCD 4/28P lens support full MF?

Yes. Full-time manual focus is always available. Adjust the focus ring at any time, regardless of whether you use AF or MF mode.

Does the XCD 4/28P lens support customising the control ring?

No. XCD 4/28P does not have a control ring.

How do I correct lens distortions?

Distortions can be corrected in Phocus or other image-processing software for more accurate optical effects. The camera itself does not support lens correction.
