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 think I already know the answer, but does anyone know if you can set a time that you need to hold down a custom button before it operates? I've just moved from a larger DSLR and I have large hands, and have found that I keep catching the custom buttons, so have had to unassign them all. If for example you needed to hold down a button for a second before it operated then it would remove the chance of inadvertently changing settings.
    • Hi, thanks for the response. Yes I was surprised, I had taken them at dusk across small bay with some lights on the shoreline, hoping just to blur the sea. However the lights were all over the place.
    • This is precisely the issue that Fujifilm should fear with their current release policy. Welcome to the world of many X-H1 early buyers who paid a premium price for the flagship model only to find out it was undermined by Fujifilm's release policy just a few months later. No significant firmware updates anymore, topped-up by a price cut of 45% and no clear model policy going forward. The issue is that Fuji (unlike Sony) uses the same core technology (sensor and processor) for different came
    • Have Fuji forgotten the XT30? The XT3 got an update that allowed it to be used as a web cam, its just had another update to upgrade its focus performance to XT4  levels. I'm beginning to wish I'd stayed with Nikon or gone for a Sony. Having said that, Fuji's own XS-10 looks great. Why would anyone buy an XT30 now? it seems suddenly very old and unattractive.
    • The 27 makes sense if you want to carry the camera in a pocket of your jacket or so. The body itself is too big for any other pockets anyway. If you carry the camera on a strap or in a small bag there's little point for a pancake lens anyway (over the 23 you already have). Note that the 27 doesn't have an aperture ring. If that's important to you (as it was for me), discard that lens. Also noteworthy: there are persistent 'rumors' about a MkII version of the 27. You may want to wait for that bec
