  1. These images could not be sharp for a number of reasons. There is an easy way to check. Find a room with plenty of light, no wind, and put camera on tripod. Get one of those charts with lots of lines and colours - like a projector focussing chart - and take pictures (using a cable release or self timer) of it at various distances and apertures. Then you will know.
  2. I'm not 100% sure on this, but does it mean that the battery grip is not connected properly?
  3. Have you got manual focus assist on? Those highlights might be showing you what's in focus.
  4. If it's like my XT-2 there is a button called the View Mode button to the right of the viewfinder. You can press this to cycle through the options for displaying the image in the EVF or the LCD.
  5. Well, it seems there are some issues with the update. Fuji has posted this on its website. Details of the problem 1. When RAW files, which were taken by X-T2 (before firmware ver.4.00), are converted in camera (ver.4.00) or by "FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO", they are not converted properly. 2. When pressing the shutter button halfway under certain conditions, the live view can flicker. 3. In rare cases, a hang-up can occur. If you want, you can update the update to v4.01 which in effect takes you back to v3.00. (If you do update to v4.01 you do not get any of the enhancements in v4.00) Full details http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/firmware/x/xt2/index.html.
  6. Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere but there is a firmware upgrade available for XT-2 to V4, Details 1. Addition of “Focus Bracketing” The update will enable the photographer to shoot focus distance bracketing up to 999 frames. When the photographer starts shooting, the focal location is shifted with each activation of the shutter by the step of focus shift set from 1 to 10. 2. Compatible with the newly developed cinema lens FUJINON MKX18-55mmT2.9 lens and FUJINON MKX50-135mmT2.9 lens The upgrade will add compatibility for the newly developed FUJINON MKX18-55mmT2.9 lens and FUJINON MKX50-135mmT2.9 lens 1) Aperture information can be displayed on the monitor. The upgrade allows users to select T-stop or F-stop. 2) The upgrade allows users to check the focus distance with the distance indicator shown on the monitor. 3) Automatically corrects the distortion and the color/brightness shading. 4) Camera automatically calculate the White Balance based on the lens position and deliver the color expressions with Film Simulation modes. 3. Enlarged and customizable indicators or information The upgrade allows users to enlarge indicators and information in the viewfinder and/or LCD monitor. This upgrade will also enable users to customize the location of where the information is shown on the display. 4. Addition of F-log SD card recording The upgrade allows users to record F-log movie data into their SD card. 5. Addition of 1080/120P high-speed video mode The upgrade allows users to shoot 1080/120P high-speed video (1/2, 1/4 and 1/5 speed slow motion), ideal for recording spectacular slow-motion footage. 6. Enhanced Phase Detection AF Latest updates to the AF algorithm provide the following performance enhancements : 1) The low-light limit for phase detection autofocus has been improved by approximately 1.5 stops from 0.5EV to -1.0EV, raising the precision and speed of autofocus in low-light environments. 2) The range at minimum aperture has been expanded from F8 to F11. For example, even when using the XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR with the tele converter XF2X TC WR, phase detection autofocus can now be used. 3) Major improvements have been made to the AF-C performance while operating the zoom, which provides major benefits when shooting sports and other scenarios in which the subjects moves unpredictably. 4) Finely-detailed surface textures of wild birds and wild animals can now be captured at high speed and with high precision as a result of improvement in phase detection autofocus. 7. Addition of “Flicker Reduction” For enhancing the quality of indoor sports photography, the upgrade allows users to reduce flicker in pictures and the display when shooting under fluorescent lighting and other similar light sources. 8. Addition of “Select Folder” and “Create Folder” Enables the user to choose the folder in which subsequent pictures will be stored. And also enable to enter a five-character folder name to create a new folder in which to store subsequent pictures. 9. New functions are added to store and read of camera settings by FUJIFILM X Acquire Once connecting a camera to a computer via USB cable, the “FUJIFILM X Acquire” allows users to backup/restore camera settings to/from a file. With “FUJIFILM X Acquire” (ver.1.7 or newer), CUSTOM REGISTRATION/EDIT settings are also stored and read.
  7. Well it seems there is a simple answer to this problem. You have to upload a copy of the receipt for your items. I was uploading files that were too big in size. Once i uploaded pdf's of around 200kb the system works. Why they don't tell you there is a maximum......
  8. I am able to register and create a profile, but not able to upload details of equipment. As per my email, this could be important for warranty purposes.
  9. Glad it's not just me. Sent a help request in and i will let you know how i get on.
  10. Here is the text of the email A very important change to our warranty registration process for digital cameras and lenses comes into effect today, 5 April 2018. Following feedback from our customers we are proud to launch FUJIFILM Connect – a website that lets FUJIFILM X Series and GFX system photographers register their equipment for warranty, arrange repairs and provides you with everything you need to know as a Fujifilm owner, in one place. The new FUJIFILM Connect website will replace our existing online warranty registration form. If you have already registered products that are still within the warranty period for your country of purchase, don’t worry, this remains unaffected and you will still be eligible for the remaining warranty. However, we recommend that you create a new account on FUJIFILM Connect and upload details of your existing Fujifilm kit and receipt for safe keeping. If you purchase any new digital camera equipment in the future, you will need to register this on FUJIFILM Connect for warranty purposes. FUJIFILM Connect will be replacing the current FUJIFILM X World website which is due to close on 30 April 2018. If you have taken advantage of the free 5GB cloud storage on FUJIFILM X World, we strongly recommend that you create a backup of these images as soon as possible. Register at FUJIFILM Connect now by visiting www.fujifilm-connect.com
  11. UK - I fill in all my equipment details, press Save and the screen goes blank. Nothing.
  12. After receiving an email about the change to Fuji's warranty process, I went to register my products. Seemed to be unsuccessful. Anyone else had issues?
  13. Are points 7 and 8 of the firmware upgrade to 2.00 http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/firmware/x/xt2/history.html what you are talking about?
