I went on a night hike with my friends, and we decided to take a group picture so I pulled out my Fujifilm camera with a 23mm 1.4.
There was no natural light so we had to use the on-camera flash, which illuminated the scene fine. However it was too dark to auto-focus, so I switched it to manual.
The 23mm 1.4 is peculiar in Fujifilm lenses in that it has a hard-stop focus ring with an etched-on focus scale. In normal conditions you would read the focus ring, then turn it to the right zone and shoot. However at this time it was too dark to read the scale and Fujifilm has disabled the on-screen focus scale for this lens in manual. (It is present in the AF+correction mode, although this also has problems
Reading the focus scale in the dark, MF was a crap-shoot so we switched it to AF and hoped for the best. Now I'm back home and have no good pictures of me and my friends because they're all blurry. How do I prevent this from happening again?
