Learningful's Achievements

  1. False alarm -- solved my own problem: it WAS the not fully connected remote pin. I was hesitant to push further, but that was the issue. Thanks.
  2. Hi folks. Just purchased the Kiwi cable switch that replaces the Fuji RR-100, along with a 2.5 to 3.5 mm adapter for my X-S10. I changed the Mic/Remote release to remote, but it isn't working. I notice that the 3.5 mm end of the adapter doesn't completely insert to the housing, (see photo attached) but it did "click" into place (other connections seem secure.) Not sure what else to try. Suggestions?
  3. My X-T1 has just gone back to Fuji a second time for the same problem. When I turn on the camera, the rear lcd display begins flashing (alternating between black and whatever the camera is pointed at every second.) Check out this YouTube link: https://youtu.be/ZEe0O8eWQCk. All camera functions (other than on/off) are frozen when this happens. When I sent it (along with my lenses) to Fuji in December, they were able to replicate the problem only once, and never again. They finally shipped it back to me 6 weeks later, having basically only upgraded the firmware. Camera was fine for about 50-60 shots, then the problem returned. The problem appears NOT to be lens related, since the problem occurs with both my Fuji lenses, as well as a random Fuji lens supplied by the retail salesperson. Someone suggested it could be the Auto Focus motor; I've also heard about a problem with the ribbon that connects the lens to the body, but I know nothing about that. Anyone else experienced this problem and found a fix? Thanks
  4. Sorry for the long delay in responding -- had a lot going on. I was thinking about situations where downloading from SD card may not be available. As it turns out, I have acquired a 3rd party AC adapter, and while I don't contemplate having to use it often, I'm glad I have it. I just wasn't sure how the "surrogate" battery attached to an AC adapter would work. I think I've figured it out now. Thanks
  5. Hello everyone, and greetings from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I've just recently jumped into the Fuji world by purchasing an X-T1 w/ Fujinon 18-135. I arrive here as a 35-year Canon shooter (7 cameras, all the way back to AE-1!) As mentioned by others, there's a pretty steep learning curve with the X-T1, but I'm working my way through. I do have a question about power. I've been experimenting with wireless connection to both my Mac and Galaxy smartphone, and while I love the convenience, I'm a little concerned about power consumption. I've purchased 3 additional camera batteries, but I'm wondering if there is an AC adapter option for long downloads. I've seen some adapters online, but I'm still a little confused as to how they work. What I've seen looks like a NPW126 battery with a cord attached -- how does that work. I can't see any entry point on the camera for an AC input. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Rod
  6. OK - I think I figured it out myself. While adjusting the shutter-speed dial, I inadvertently set it 1/4000. Reset to "A" and all is well.
  7. I'm a new X-T1 owner, having migrated from a Canon system. I've had my new kit for less than a week. Was shooting on the weekend and review/playback screen was working perfectly. Today I took a few more test shots, and I can't get the camera to display my images. When I press the review button, I can see a very faint outline of the image (almost invisible) but that's it. Yes, I've been experimenting with screen settings and such today, but I can't figure out if I did something to cause this, or.... Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks
