  1. I can't say I solved it. I can only say I trust what the Fuji technician told me. It makes sense to me that the mechanical shutter was the cause. I just now packaged the camera body to be returned. So it will probably be 3 or 4 weeks before I can confirm that the mechanical shutter was the problem. If you want to do the same test he had me do: set your ISO to 6400 set your shutter speed to 1/8000 set your aperture to f/2.8 set your shutter type to mechanical take a photo of a low contrast subject, such as a gray wall with something off to the right or left of
  2. I called Fujifilm XT2 support and they answered within 2 rings and were most incredibly helpful! After about 30 minutes of troubleshooting, we discovered my mechanical shutter was going bad - specifically the second curtain. While I'm not glad there's a problem, I'm glad to know what it is. I'll be sending the body to them for repair, which should take about 2.5 weeks. I'm very happy with that.
  3. Is anyone else having this problem? My XT2 works beautifully with my Godox flashes (two AD200s and one AD600) when my shutter speed is 500 or higher. But if I drop the shutter speed below 500, the flashes stop firing. I'm using the Godox XPro-F transmitter. So what I'm really wanting is "Low Speed Sync" so I can use my Godox flashes at speeds like 1/60, 1/125, 1/250, etc. Why I do not suspect the transmitter or flashes I can press the test button on the transmitter and the flashes fire I can put the same transmitter on my X100s and shoot at any shutter speed and
  4. If your shutter sound is turned off, you'll need to turn shutter sound on for the flash to fire. Seems unrelated, but that will definitely prevent the hot shoe from communicating with the connected flash or transmitter.
