What could be causing this in my X-T3.  160ISO, 20 sec exposure, 16-80mm at 22 mm.  Attached is a crop.  Looks like red and green hot pixels.  My film sim is the std default as well.  All photos are raw and edited in lightroom.

Did you try pixel remapping? The hot pixels may be gone after that procedure. The X-T3 should remap by itself from time to time but you can force the process from the menu.

Thanks Olaf.  I did the pixel mapping last week.  With that said, these photos are taken in late evening and most long exposures.  Not all my photos have them.  Sometimes its a bright green pixel somewhere in the image and some brighter spots that look like noise but they stand out more prominant and not really in the lower left but lower left is most dominant at times.  Again, this doesn't happen but maybe 1 every 10 shots but its on those shots that I don't want this.

I do not have any good thoughts about how to stop the hot pixels from showing up, but there are noise reduction techniques from astrophotography that may help your images until you are able to get the hardware issue resolved.

Right after taking a long exposure shot (or sequence) put the lens cap back on and take another image at the very same settings you used for the long exposure shot. in your image editing software, put this dark frame as a layer directly above your good image layer. Set the blend mode for the dark frame to “Subtract”. That should take care of a lot of the minor issues and help towardcthe major ones.

Another possibility is to set the blend mode to “Difference” and play with the layer’s opacity setting.

These do depend on whether or not your image processing software allow you to do that sort of thing.

Actually the setting LONG EXPOSURE NR should do the dark frame subtraction. In my XT30 it works without any problem. That's why you have to wait more than double the exposure time, until the long exposure is finished with this setting on.

Ahh man.  I was hoping you would not say that.  I hope thats not what is needed.  Servicing can take weeks.  Just had this thing for a month.

Did you use LONG EXPOSURE NR?? Actually this should remove the hot pixels from the raw and jpeg.

OK.  I will look into that as a temp solution.  Hopefully, a perm solution will come up.

I think your camera is fine. A hot sensor will show more hot pixels. They come and go over time. Nothing to worry.

this I did not do.  I usually try to temper my noise reduction because l want to control it in post but I will give this a try and see if it keeps its sharpness.

It can be, if you are shooting a single exposure. If you are shooting a sequence, then things get more complicated. Here is a better explanation:

      I am struggling with underexposed videos using my X-T3 and 10-24mm with interior Real Estate videos even with a decent amount of natural and ambient light. The footage is just too dark unless I pump up the ISO to 4000 where it gets really noisy.
      What are the best wide-angle lenses for the X-T3 with regards to interior Real Estate videography where it's usually low light? Also, is there a budget friendly option? I've gone through the Complete Overview of X Mount Lenses but I was hoping for some recommendations specific to the industry and video.
      Thanks for any help guys!

      So i have a friend in Hollywood FL thats about to return home on monday morning. This is my last chance to purchase an XT3 and join Fuji but it's out of stock everywhere. Does anyone know any local stores he could walk in and purchase? Shipping is obviously out of the question.

      Eye sensor on my XT3 stopped working out of the blue. After narrowing down the cause, I found out that after I turn the camera off and back on the eye sensor is working for 2-15 seconds and switches between EVF and display as expected. After that, it stops working. I removed the sd card, tried different batteries, even changed the lens and also updated to the latest firmware as well as resetting the camera twice. After all of this, the eye sensor is still not working. Has anyone encountered something similar?

      Hi to all Fuji lovers, I’d like to share a shortfilm https://vimeo.com/456176145 I recently released and has some complementary shots on Fuji xt3, most of the footage is from DNG files Magic Lantern on 5d MK3 from 2013. Hope you guys like it and feedback welcome!!!!

      Recently upgraded from my XT-1 and purchased a black Fuji XT-3, but it ended up getting "lost in transit." Now it seems that it's no longer in stock, and B&H is no help. And on top of that, the price has now gone back up from the $999 price to $1,499.
       
      Is the XT-3 really that backed up on orders? What's going on to cause the price increase and such a long restock time?

    • Search your manual for "PRE-AF" option. If ON camera should focus without pressing release botton.
    • Thanks, Willtoride. It's beginning to make sense to me now. I guess I was really stressing the CPU.
    • Just got the new X-S10. I don't think you have a forum for the X-s10 yet. Hopefully this is the right place to post. I'm confused about how autofocus works. I'm sure it is similar on all X models. Before I bought, I watched tons of videos on youtube about the X-S10 and when they tested the autofocus, they would walk away or towards the camera so you could see the focus adjust. Now that I got the camera, I'm baffled. (1) AutoFocus doesn't seem to happen automatically but you have t
    • I have only been able to get the XWebcam and XWebcam2 to work on my Macbook Pro )mid 2012, Catalina) with QuickTime Player Capture video without controls of the XWebcam software and with XWebcam/XWebcam2.  I have been able to get it to work with Zoom only. Not FaceTime, not Skype, not Google Meeting. My old Logitech Webcam work with everything also.
    • 4k 60fps 400Mbps means you're using the H265 codec. It's very cpu/gpu intensive. My 2016 MBP struggles to play H265 smoothly but my main editing machine plays them back fine, so this could be the issue you're seeing. Try H264, which will limit you to 200Mbps or maybe create proxies.
