I’m a bit worried I did a bad deal. I bought a used Fujifilm XT-3 quite cheap yesterday. I am the 3rd owner.
The first owner was a professional photographer that bought the camera in 2019.
Neither me or the seller can find the shutter count by checking the EXIF. He got a shutter count of 391, I got a count of 3.
Seller told me he had the camera on service once to fix the shutter button, could the service guys have reset the counter?
I also noticed when I got home I had to put in the date and time again even though I tested the camera like two hours before at the sellers place.
I read this might be due to a small capacitor that stores some memory. Can this be the reason behind the reset shutter count?
Appreciate any advice on how I can find the total shutter count, if I should return the camera or just live with the unknown and enjoy the camera.
Hello there! I am a new buyer on Fujifilm. I own the X-S10 5 days.
I shoot compressed and uncompressed stills.
I have adjust setting for wired connection and set menu to USB CARD READER.
When i open the Fujifilm file on my PC i can see only JPGs and not my RAW FILES. I use a Sandisk SDXC extreme pro 64GB, UHS - 1, U-3, V-30 memory card.
(I used a card reader too. I can view only jpgs too. See the foto below).
Am i doing something wrong?
The camera body is updated to 2.10.
I’ve been importing video files from my XT3 to iPhone using SD Card adapter with no issue for several years.
now for some reason, I can’t.
So I imported to iMac on Photos app. After syncing its is now on my phone. Video plays in album but I cannot import them to any video editing app.
I’m using iPhone w most current iOS.
I recently published a Fuji-centric article on the best lenses for infrared photography. Most of the lenses I tested and reported on are XF mount. I did include some Sony FF and Micro 4/3 as well. I include several images too, of course.
You can see the article on PetaPixel or my blog
Hope you find it useful!
I must have activated the wrong setting because now when I switch to the OVF the white windows stays for a second and then completely disappears. Any idea how to get it back? Thank you all so much. 🙂
No thunder stolen. If you read to the end of my article you'll see (in the section "Resources") I have a link for Simon Weir's site. I also have two other links on there with various IR tests. My article is only Fuji-centric because that is my system of choice though I've done a ton of IR work with Sony FF as well. I consider the sites for which I provide links to be complementary and I wish there were more sites out there evaluating for infrared. Although I test for infrared quite thoroughly I can only afford so many lenses. The eight Fuji mount lenses shown in my article I bought myself. In fact, same with the Sony and Micro 4/3 with the exception of the two Sony APS-C zooms that were rented. Also when I get new lenses, I'll update the article on my blog. I can't update the PetaPixel one as they just republished what was on my blog at the time. I have recently shot with the Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f1.2 Fuji-X and 7Artisans 35mm f0.95 Fuji-X. After trying 2 samples of the Voigtlander I returned them both but mainly for their strange and unacceptable (for my work) performance with resolution. Regarding IR, the Voiglander is free of hotspots from 1.2 through about f3.5. I'm impressed with the 7Artisans overall but it only works for IR at wider apertures (f0.95 through about f2.8.) Then again that's why you buy an f/0.95 lens. Thanks for the feedback. Happy shooting! Joel
Yes I don’t blame you. I’ll always have some Fujifilm gear. But if they don’t upgrade their gear in the next 3 months I’m going to go back to Canon for a lot of my work. I really love Fujifilm for all the right reasons but it’s faults are getting in the way of my work at this point.
