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

    • I found this lens OIS quite lousy .  Very very far from the promised 4 stops. https://www.imaging-resource.com/lenses/fujinon/xf-18-55mm-f2.8-4-r-lm-ois/image-stabilization-test/ Without Ois you need 1/125th sec for a 50mm lens, right ?  Ok, I agree. Then 1 stop gain means 1/60th .... 2 stop gain would mean 1/30th .... 3 stops 1/15th .... 4 stops 1/8th .  Right  ? Well ..... forget it !   All the promised Fuji stop gains are blatantly overstated !  Particularly with the XF18-55 le
    • I agree. Coming from xt2 and x100s, the xt4 is a huge disappointment in terms of build quality. I couldn’t understand how I acquired a serious mark on the ‘prism’ within 24 hours of arrival as I am a very careful user. Sad about this retrograde step.
    • I have just got a new xt4 and experienced the same issue. No apparent problem or damage but odd nevertheless and a bit disconcerting!  Did you get any responses?
    • Hello everybody, New Fuji owner from Michigan here. 😊 I've been a photographer since the 80s and have been shooting digital since 2003 (almost exclusively Canon.) Being someone who learned with film I've always had a pretty nice collection of vintage lenses and while they're alright on my DSLRs I've always wanted something a little better from them. I missed the look they gave me on my old film bodies. Since Covid-19 has kept me from working I felt it was a great time to explore mirror
