I experience the same problem using the X-T30 together with the X2T-F. Very annoying indeed!

I have a freezing X-T2 while using the Godox X2t trigger. I have been in contact with Godox helpdesk and their technicians "are looking at it". Waiting since November 2020.

To 'unfreeze' the camera it suffices to switch off the X2t trigger. Very disruptive to the workflow.

Hi everyone,

I had the same issues about freezing. It occured after taking a picture or on video start and pictures weren't saved as well. I remembered having formated the sd card using a pc. After using the camera everything worked fine again.

Just purchased the T-X4. Within 2 days I encountered an issue that prevents me from taking any photos. It was working just fine did a couple photos shoots without any issues. Then each time I press the shutter button half way or full, the camera resets / turns off and on without taking the photo.

Reset all settings, updated firmware even though it was already on the current version. Out of luck. Super disappointing after spending $2000 on a first real camera.

Okay, so, as a Newb, when my XT-4 froze on the first day (simulating a crazy long exposure -- for like 20 minutes), I figured I'd just done something stupid while experimenting. 

Now, it sounds like freezing is kind of a "thing". 

I'm on the latest firmware. I don't use a remote trigger. Nor any hotshoe devices; just the camera alone. 

I have 2 SD cards: a new 300Mb/sec Sandisk - 64GB. And a used 90Mb/sec Sandisk - 128GB. 

Any recommendations or solutions at this point from anyone?

We have the same freeze issue with ALL our Fuji gear (X-T3 and X-T4) in combination with the Godox X2T Trigger.

They freeze now and then and only removing the battery helps 😥

Newest Firmware ist on all of the cams and triggers

Hello, I have the same issue with my XT-4 and the Godox X2T. It is a big issue. When I make shooting, the camera freeze after a while, I need to remove the battery to make it working again.

I have shot with my X-T4 for a year straight in all sorts of scenarios with zero problems. Today I attach the Godox X2-T flash trigger during a shoot and experienced the "orange light lockup" issue several times that's being talked about here. You must remove the battery to reset. It's clearly a problem related to using the Godox X2T, but it could be something with Fuji.

I have the same issue.

My XT3, XT-30, and my X100V freeze regulary when I use the Godox X2T.

Not on every shot, but on average every 5th to 10th shot. Regardless of the SD card used

How can you "update" a current version of the firmware?

I had the same problem and solved it by replacing the Godox X2T with the Godox XPRO.  

No lockups yet.

Bummer to have to buy new equipment, but not as annoying as the workflow-breaking (and embarrassing) hard lockups.

My setup, for reference:

  • FujiFilm X-T2
  • Godox X-PROF
  • Godox V860II-F
  • Tethertools USB cable
  • CaptureOne-Fujifilm
  • 2x Sandisk Extreme Pro, 64MB

The only difference is the workstation.  The XPRO has been used on my iMac. The issues occurred while tethering to my MacBook Pro. I will be very sad if my MacBook is the cause. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hi, i have the same problem, my xt4 freezes at random moments. This happened before and after the software upgrade!

A few times after remote access bu alsof at random moments. Already two times the camera was frozen at power-off, but still consuming battery power. So then my camera becale overheated and battery was empty after a time. 

I mentioned this at the sales point already after one week but no reaction.... (belgium).

I am wondering if there are also some people NOT suffering with this problem???

I encountered this recently with the X2T-F (most recent firmware) simultaneously on my xt4 and gfx50s - I just spent an hour on troubleshooting and (for me at least, and for now) this worked: 

disable the LED AF switch on the godox transmitter, make sure that LED AF is also turned to "off" in the TTL settings of the camera body. 

fired a couple of hundred strobes like this with both bodies with no freezing occuring. 

firmware xt-4: 1.23

firmware gfx50s: 4.30

firmware godox x2t-f: 1.1

I have now contacted the reseller Scandinavian Photo and I selected to use my consumer right to just return the camera and lens, and then get a another brand new X-T4 and lens (as a package, as I originally bought it first time) from them. That way I avoid any discussion on a warranty situation. The person at Scandinavian Photo was very friendly and said that will be fine do so so.

    • I must have activated the wrong setting because now when I switch to the OVF the white windows stays for a second and then completely disappears. Any idea how to get it back? Thank you all so much. 🙂
    • No thunder stolen. If you read to the end of my article you'll see (in the section "Resources") I have a link for Simon Weir's site. I also have two other links on there with various IR tests. My article is only Fuji-centric because that is my system of choice though I've done a ton of IR work with Sony FF as well. I consider the sites for which I provide links to be complementary and I wish there were more sites out there evaluating for infrared. Although I test for infrared quite thoroughly I can only afford so many lenses. The eight Fuji mount lenses shown in my article I bought myself. In fact, same with the Sony and Micro 4/3 with the exception of the two Sony APS-C zooms that were rented. Also when I get new lenses, I'll update the article on my blog. I can't update the PetaPixel one as they just republished what was on my blog at the time. I have recently shot with the Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f1.2 Fuji-X and 7Artisans 35mm f0.95 Fuji-X. After trying 2 samples of the Voigtlander I returned them both but mainly for their strange and unacceptable (for my work) performance with resolution. Regarding IR, the Voiglander is free of hotspots from 1.2 through about f3.5. I'm impressed with the 7Artisans overall but it only works for IR at wider apertures (f0.95 through about f2.8.) Then again that's why you buy an f/0.95 lens. Thanks for the feedback. Happy shooting! Joel
    • Yes I don’t blame you. I’ll always have some Fujifilm gear. But if they don’t upgrade their gear in the next 3 months I’m going to go back to Canon for a lot of my work. I really love Fujifilm for all the right reasons but it’s faults are getting in the way of my work at this point.
    • You're welcome. I still use my X-Pro2 for personal work every now and then, but I replaced the X-H1 (and the rest of the Fuji-kit) with a Z7II-based kit and I'm very satisfied with that move.
    • That’s a lot of great info. I’m gonna explore those options. I don’t really wanna get an XT4 at this point. (Come on X-H2!) Thanks!
