  1. Try reaching out to Fuji - though they'll probably want to have it sent in but it doesn't hurt to call
  2. Have you or anyone else cleaned the sensor? There is a s specific procedure for cleaning IBIS equipped cameras. My cameras have IBIS but they certainly don't vibrate a table....
  3. many folks complain about the camera remote app. I have no issues with it. I use it with my X and GFX series. Yes, sometimes it fail but that's far and few in between uses. I love the GPS feature, and the remote timer. I don't use any of the other features such as the transfer. Overall, though a bit finicky I like it very much.
  4. The first gen 10-24 had a habit of failing. It seems that moisture was deadly, and I don't mean downpour either. There is a guy on YouTube who went through three of them before he got fed up and quit the 10-24f4. The new WR version is supposedly better.
  5. HA@ What are you doing wrong?! You are shooting video on a GFX 100! HAHAHHAHA. Sorry. No insult, just sad humor. I don't do video... Can't help but I couldn't resist.
  6. I spent 53 days traveling in the Yukon and Alaska this past summer (2022). Using my vans power outlet and some splitters, and some accessories I purchased off AmazonI always had my XH1 (3 batteries), G50r (2 batteries), and G100s (2 batteries) , plus three drone batteries, my iPad, a power bank, apple watches, and two iPhones charging as I drove. Never had a low or dead battery issue on any device EXCEPT for the ONE time my spouse UNPLUGGED the main cable because she wanted to power up a har straightener (LOL NOW, NOT THEN). Check out the many options available on various online retailers, as well as Staples, Best Buy etc.
  7. On a new camera? That's odd. On my 11 year old xt1 (February 2012) it took about six years or so for the rubber to start peeling. I just put a few drops of gorilla glue and here we are in 2023 and it's still on there.
  8. Just chiming in but I buy various size lens hoods by the dozen on eBay. They are cheap, and they work. I use the Fuji hoods, and other no-name brands.
  9. I've been using Fujifilm since February 2012. I started with an XT1 - which just so happens to be sitting here next to me with the original 27mm 2.8 lens. I sold ALL my Nikon gear including multiple D800e bodies, 70-200 24-70 and 16-24. The only Nikon I still own is my original D700 with a 50mm 1.8 and the 18-35 zoom lens. I really fell in love with the Fuji system. As you will note in my "signature" below I own quite a few Fuji items. I have NEVER had a camera issue that required repair --- The exception being my Fujifilm S2Pro DSLR body that required a new sensor and Fuji replaced it free of charge and it was already a five year old camera. So I'd go for it if you really want a Fuji. On this forum you have an amazing support group that will answer your requests for assistance. Good Luck with whatever decision you make.
  10. Well as I mentioned above I was about to order a 100s. I did. It's FANTASTIC, but it does experience some hot pixels. Not too many, but that was only after 5-6 months of (everyday) use. I was away in the Yukon and Alaska for 53 days and with over 9,000 raw files I did notice some dead/hot pixels. Not sure what I'm going to do other than re-map.
  11. How about using the self-timer set for 10 seconds, or the Fuji App? Have you tried those two options? But first, set the camera to back-button auto focus. This separates the function of autofocus, from shutter release.
  12. Oh good point. As does any "chrome" effect...
  13. I was wondering if anyone is using the new 20-35 F4 lens, and if so what your opinion of it is. I'm waiting on B&H to send me a stock notice but I would like to have some user feedback. And yes, I've read and watched YouTube and other reviews.... Thanks
  14. We need more info before we can post a helpful answer. Let us know the type and speed of the cards you are using.
  15. Strange. My 16 1.4, and mt 23 1.4 BOTH focus on my XT1, 2, and XH1 whether the clutch is engaged or not. Did the rep explain why that is? I'm curious
