IBIS Thud noise?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Weird issue on my X-T4. I hear a "thud" noise under certain circumstances that I believe is the IBIS mechanism. Can anyone see if their camera does the same?

Hold the camera in portrait orientation with the shutter button at the top. Click the play button to review images. Once in review mode, half-press the shutter button to get back to shooting mode. When I do this, I hear a pretty substantial click/thud noise from the camera. If I hold the camera in portrait orientation with the shutter button at the bottom, the sound doesn't happen. It also doesn't happen when holding the camera in landscape orientation.

Not sure if this warrants sending the camera in or not.

my camera also behaves in the same way, moreover, by shaking the body a bit, you actually hear some particular noise from inside the camera body. I just bought it ... what do you recommend? Would it be better to return it and change it or does the problem have no particular negative consequences on the functioning of the camera? Have you kept it that way or replaced it?
Thank you so much and have a good weekend everyone !!

I would tend not to worry about it unless it buggers up your photography.  Fuji has a similar banging and clanging around inside  their 80mm macro lens when it is rotated along the y-axis either on or off the camera.  Slightly unsettling but more of a design feature than a problem.  I certainly don't plan to send my X-T4 back until I have a problem.  And this ain't a problem ---- yet.

    • Right now, zooming in and out of a photo in Playback mode is controlled by rotating the rear command dial. I am always inadvertently pressing the dial while rotating it which resets the zoom. Very frustrating to say the least.😬 Can this function be changed to a button? I could not find an answer to this in the manual. Thank you. Bob

    • Hi everyone, Just bought my first prime for my X-T4, the XF 23mm f2. However, autofocus doesn't seem to work? The autofocus square frame just sits in the top left corner of the scene no matter what's in the shot, it never moves, automatically locks onto, or hunts for subjects, I have to move it manually. Any idea why this might be? I've spent a lot of time Googling and can't find anything. I've never owned a prime lens before so maybe I'm being stupid. Thanks!
    • For Leica, it's not bad at all actually. Considering that, for such price, you have the Summilux 28mm f:1.7 ASPH. with it. If one looks in the Leica M-mount Summicron 28mm f:2 ASPH., the lens alone is already at $5k and the Summilux 1.4 is at $7.5k (see screenshot below). So for both body and the Summilux at less than 5k EUR, that's pretty decent price when you have a FF sensor, 47MP ... I don't know about the digital Leicas but i owned and M6 and Summicron 35mm before. The colors shot with Fujifilm Sensia were above my other brands' lenses. The black and white came out really nice too.
    • I just bought brand new 50-140 lens and aperture ring doesn't show correct numbers. I set the ring at ie. F4 and my X-T3 shows that aperture is 3.6. When i set lens to A then the aperture works as it should with front dial. Did i just bought bad copy of the lens?
