X-T30 front command dial only decreases

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)


I have the following issue with my X-T30: sometimes the front command dial only decreases whatever direction I turn it, left or right. I have set this dial to control ISO so I cannot increase ISO during shooting and also while browsing the photos and turn the dial to the right it does not go to next photo but to previous. The only way to restore function is to turn camera off and on again. I have tried to reproduce the problem with no success, it happens randomly but is very annoying. 

Seems like a firmware issue, i have the latest 1.20. Anyone else with similar issue?

You should try and assign other features to the front dial command and see if it acts similarly. I've had this issue with an X-Pro2 (though with the back command dial) and it turned out to be a moist-issue. It started after a walk in some mild rain on Iceland and only after the camera was serviced it disappeared... Could it be the same issue for you?

It acts the same way for every command i assign. I tried also factory reset with no success.

After many hours of troubleshooting I noticed that i had this issue with a Samyang lens and also with a 7Artisans lens, both manual with non electronic contacts. Today i am shooting the whole day with my Fuji 18-55 and also with my Fuji 55-230 and everything is ok, so this could probably be a bug/incompatibility with non-Fuji lenses. However needs more testing to confirm

    • With stills, I had write errors when shooting panorama, CH, CL, long exposure etc and using a slower card. Had reported to Fuji here and as expected the issue was never heard of by them in spite of sending them links to the issues. But they were very helpful in loaning a camera, a faster card and they took my card to try on their camera. It was concluded by Fuji that the card was slow. And the truth is, I switched to a faster card and haven't seen the issue after that.  Also, I never delete
    • Well...this is embarrassing, but maybe helpful for anyone else out there who runs into this - if you change your connection settings to "USB Fixed" you will get the symptoms above. Switch it to "USB Auto" and you should be fine. Basically, while troubleshooting for Webcam usage I switched it and didn't think about the ramifications of leaving it that way. Whoops!  
    • I generally don't shoot video with my Fujifilm cameras, but you also wrote you had the errors when taking stills..? I've had my fair share of write errors with different Fujifilm cameras up to the level where I'm only using them for personal work now. The X-H1 (prior to firmware update) was notorious, but I've seen it on X-T2s, X-T3s and even on my trail run with a GFX50S. I wrote a post on how to minimize the risk of write errors in Sept (link below). SD Card technology in itself is not th
    • I must admit this post really surprised me, I have just moved from a Canon DSLR and apart from the articulated screen not feeling as robust, and the battery/connector doors a little brittle, I thought the build quality was good. To me everything feels really solid.
    • 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.
