X-T3 rear dial button too sensitive


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I just bought X-T3 camera (switched from Olympus) and have an issue with the rear dial button. I am not able to rotate it without pushing it as a button. That means it is too sensitive and I can rotate it just by nail and not by the finger. In principle I do not need it but it is the only way how to change values in Q-menu. Has anybody similar experience? If yes, any tip how to solve it? Thanks

Hi Marek, Yes I have the exact same issue... the rear control dial presses too easily when I'm trying to rotate it with my thumb. I had my camera repaired for another issue (via SquareTrade warranty service) and also told them about about the rear control dial.

When the camera was returned it was obvious they'd fixed everything *except* that. For now I try to work around the issue by pressing downward on the dial as I rotate it, in order to gain a bit of traction with my thumb. Also, the dial functions a bit worse, even, in cold weather.

..also (if you happen to see my response) the Q menu values can be changed via the touch screen directly. I bought my X-T3 last July and It took me a few months to stumble across this solution, and not for lack of geeking out on the Youtube videos and the manual.

 

I wonder if anyone else has the same issue.. with the rear control dial pressing/entering too easily.

    • Nice. Which one was taken with X100F?

    • I can confirm this. My X100V had the same as do some of my other XF WR lenses. The fact that some lenses do and others don't (same lens) leads me to believe that Fuji has quite wide production tolerances. Over the past 7 years I've had (partly still have) 13 different XF lenses. 4 of them needed replacement due to production failures (loose aperture or focus rings, crooked mount...). Though I really like Fuji cameras, to me that is a bit too often...
    • It's quite a difference. As a basis the Leica Q2 already has a very good 47Mp full-frame sensor paired with one of the best lenses ever made (a 28mm Summilux). By leaving out the color array filter on the sensor and optimizing the sensor lenses for monochrome images, you get an incredibly sharp and contrast rich monochrome image. Without the color array filter you also boost the low light performance and expand the dynamic range of the sensor by approx. 2 stops. In the meanwhile, I couldn't resist and purchased a Q2 Monochrome. I'm not disappointed. Though my X-Pro produces very nice Acros files, the Q2 Monochrome is a different league (also in price to be fair). I usually shoot monochrome for my personal work, but to be able to shoot at ISO25000 and have files as clean as an X-Pro at ISO1600 is amazing. At normal ISO levels, the level of detail and the tonality of the Q2 files is stunning. Both for the jpegs out-of-camera and the DNG raw files via Capture One.
    • I use Blender, it's an open source program, free to use and many good tutorials on YouTube. The program is also used by professional moviemakers. It does the same or more as the apps recommended above. link to Blender Edit: Davinci Resolve is another free video editor worth trying.
