Webcam X issues with X-T3 - just shows logo


Recommended Posts

Anyone get the Fujifilm X Webcam driver to work yet? I have not.

I am using X-T3 with latest firmware (3.21).

Set Pre-AF to ON.

Set Connection Mode to USB AUTO.

Set Drive Setting to "S".

Using Windows 10 Pro. Restarted computer after X Webcam driver installation.

On both Skype and Google Meet, all I see is a "Fujifilm X Webcam" white on black logo when I switch to Fujifilm webcam. Same thing with Connection Mode set to USB Fixed. Tried different USB-A ports on computer and different USB cables.

The webcam driver is not seeing the body.

Make sure you are using a data cable. Charge-only USB-C cables will cause this. Lots of USB-A to USB-C cables in particular are data only.

if you don't get a camera detection by Windows when you plug in the cable and turn on the camera, it's probably the cable.

Same settings as fuji29832. After using my X-T3 as a webcam for > 1hour, I had the same symptom : "Fujifilm X Webcam" white on black logo. Changing the USB_C cable did not solve the problem. As it seemed to me that the X-T3 was a bit hot, I switched it off to cool it down. I tried again to use it as a Webcam approximately 2 hours later and... everything was working fine again !

Put everything in auto and drive in S (check the other settings according to the manual).  Then (important) turn the camera on before you connect the USB.  When you connect the USB, you get some folders opening up on your screen.  Ignore them.  Finally, connect to Zoom or whatever you are using.

Also, Webex doesn't work with all software.  For me, it works with Zoom and not with Camtasia.  I haven't tested Teams, Skype, etc.

I have the same issue but I'm 100% sure it is not the camera nor its settings.

For context. I have 3 Lenovo Thinkpad laptops. All three laptops have the same driver for the camera, all have the same Xwebcam2 application (used same installer).

Of the three laptops, only the most recent one has this issue, regardless of USB port used.

Using the Device Manager I can confirm all laptops see the same device, with the same device driver, but for the newer laptop, Xwebcam2 never sees the camera.

Looking at the feed on my video conference call I see no error message (fuji displays slightly different images to show connections, battery or temp errors, but none here, picture below).

Also, this is regardless of the vide conference sw. Old laptops work in zoom/teams, new laptop doesn't work in any (as the camera is never seen by the fuji sw).

Might be some restrictions on windows (corporate/domain) that break this, but also looked at Windows Event manager and saw no errors related to the camera.

This is a helpful information for us. It has been describe very well about webcam, which is correct.

Hello everyone,

Yesterday I was looking for this issue and found this forum. Just wanted to write here how I solved it.

In my case I had the same problem as you all. And what was causing the issue was an open software.

Capture One was controling the camera by tethering and didn't let it work as webcam or in any other way. 

So, make sure you don't have any other photography software running (even in second plane).

 

Hope it can be usefull for you as well.(and apologize my english).

Does anyone have a connectivity issue? I am trying to use X-T2 as a webcam using the latest software on Win 11, but when I start a video call with Zoom, it works for 3~4 secs and then the webcam software crash.

Tried with an object without moving it, and it seems like it works longer, but eventually the webcam software crash as well...

The solution for me using fujifilm xt3 & the fuji x webcam app for zoom was setting shutter speed to 30, ISO to auto, aperture 0 on the camera. Also make sure video settings on camera are set to 25 or 30 fps.

Before I found this solution - I had the same issues with the fuji webcam app greying out and not launching, on zoom the fujifilm placeholder card was showing instead of the camera feed. But when I changed the shutter dial to 30, the camera feed just started working I didn't even need to launch the fuji webcam app.

I think its because zoom etc is looking for the frame rate input to its system to match what the camera is telling it, so if you set the shutter speed to auto (as I have seen recommended on tutorials for this) its not recognising the input

    • @HC-110 Yes, disappointing, right. I've sort of given up - I'll never buy Fuji again. I tried interjecting on their social media ads, living comments imploring them to fix what they deliberately changed/broke. But not a word in response.  Something changed at Fuji and it does not benefit the user. -on to other worries.   John
    • Take the Fuji and save some budget. But keep in mind the Fuji has an APC-C sensor, so the effective focal length you get is about 42mm.
    • How do I lock X-E1 exposure in video mode? It's stuck on auto, and the only thing it can be adjusting is ISO, as the shutter is locked at 24fps, and I'm using a vintage Nikon lens - so manual f-stop. I know its not designed to shoot video, but I find it hard to believe a camera of this quality that offers video at full HD 24fps, would not allow an exposure lock function. Without exposure control, the video mode is useless. 
    • I want to share some thoughts with you in order to help me choose the right camera.  I sold almost my photographic equipment and I kept only 2 cameras.  Ricoh GRII and Fujifilm XT5 and some lenses ( 10-24/4 & 35/2 & 56/1,2 & 16-80/4)  My project for the next years is to visit cities and countries around the world and taking street photography and some landscape photography and publish some books with these photos.  Street photography is 80% of my photos now. The rest is landscape photography. Here some key points I want to take only one camera and one lens. No big cameras, no lenses, no bags anymore. I like to be more minimalist in my philosophy to take photos and in my life generally.  I shot 95% Jpeg not RAW. I know the benefits of RAW in editing, dynamic range etc but all cameras has anymore very good jpeg. And it’s ok for me. If a camera has RAW and JPEG I choose this option and keep RAW for the future when I print the books. Then I will edit my final photos for the printing. I I like 28mm not 35mm I sold my Canon and Fujis and I have 8.000$ in stock. For my new camera and for my first trips.  I read many reviews and I decided to buy one of these 2 cameras for my basic camera.  Leica Q3  Or  Fuji X100 VI with 28mm lens  Would you like please to send me your opinion about this dilemma? Which you would prefer Leica Q3 or Fuji X100VI and why?  Thank you  Greg Plat. 
    • I currently have my GFX100s camera in to the Fuji repair shop in Canada but I hear they redirect everything to a central North American one in the US.  (Which might explain part of why there is a delay in getting a diagnostic.). The answer so far is that they want to charge me $400 to do a "more advanced" pixel mapping than is available on the firmware mapping.  If that doesn't work then they recommend a sensor replacement but have not quoted that price yet. I have liked everything about the GFX100s (almost everything) until this started getting worse.  I usually only see it in portrait work when I'm working in more moody, low key setting - which unfortunately is a style I like to work on.  I can see the problem going back to six months after I bought the camera but it was not as strong and I treated it as typical bad pixel mapping.  Except that was only a temporary fix. I'm also reluctant to replace the sensor since the last one barely made it a year.
