I Just got a Fuji X-T3 from Amazon Warehouse deals, and the button feels off... 
I used a X-T1 and have a X-t2 and they both feel very different to the X-T3.
I made a video to ask if this is how the X-T3 works or if I got a "faulty" unit.

Have you tried removing the add-on shutter button?

Thanks for your reply and feedback, yes you can see in 1:18 of the video I test it without the add-on ;) 
This button is driving me mad, it's such a small thing, literally just a few mm of travel distance, but it feels wrong.

I've been wondering the same thing. I purchased an X-T3 a couple of months ago and have the same issue. It doesn't feel normal to me.  I also have an X-T20 which does not do that.

I brought up this issue to amazon, and showed them this video, they offered a 10% refund... for a camera that costs around $1000 that is a lot, but not nearly enough to fix the problem by Fuji, as they would charge $200-$400 for the fix. 

p.s. amazon said that I'll be able to return the camera as defective at any time, should I decide that the problem is unbearable. 

Don't know if this helps but yeah, Amazon's 2 year guarantee seems to have worked for me.

      Hello
      I bought a new Fuji X-T3 and went to take some pictures, JPG + RAF.  I used two SIM cards (one as a backup).  When I got back home, I started uploading all of them to my computer (Mac).  I removed the main SIM card from the camera and plugged it into a multi/card reader, the same way I always do.  There were in total: RAF = 147 photos, and JPG = 159 photos.  I was able to upload: RAF = 75 photos (51%), and JPG = 117 photos (74%).  After those photos were uploaded, an error message appeared in the screen: THE FINDER CAN’T COMPLETE THE OPERATION BECAUSE SOME DATA IN (NAME OF THE NEXT PICTURE) CAN’T BE READ OR WRITTEN. ERROR CODE -36.  No more photos were uploaded, even when I tried several times.  I also tried doing the process one photo at a time, and also repeated the process with the second SIM card.  Same results.
      Thinking that the two SIM cards were corrupted or damaged at the same time (???), I then tried to format and take some more pictures with another SIM card and to upload them to the computer.  The same situation and exact message came up over.  I am able to see all the pictures (RAF & JPG) directly from the SIM cards connected to the Mac, I just can’t upload them to it.  My frustration is that 51% of the RAF, and 74% of the JPG photos were already uploaded using the same method, devices, computer, etc., without any problem, and then just stopped.
      What can I do or check for?  Is that something to do with the way the camera store the photos in the SIM card?  Again, it performed as expected PARTIALLY, and then stopped!
      Thank you for your advise.

      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?

      Hello Everyone, nice to meet you all. It's my first time posting in Fuji  X Forum.
      Just wanted to say I moved from Sony full frame mirrorless system to Fuji X-T3 because I am mainly a video shooter, and XT-3 is an incredible system for me, and I am so happy with its codec and color (and lens), but it turns out that my XT-3 also shoots incredible still photos as well! 
      And so I have been shooting stills, and since I'm a video shooter first and foremost, I made a timelapse video that I would like to share with the fine people here.
      Where would be an appropriate place to upload a link to the youtube video of the timelapse on these forums? 
      The subject is landscape.
      Thanks, and I'm looking forward to checking out more awesome shots everyone has been taking with their Fujifilm cameras!

      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.

    • Which manual settings did you use? Don‘t depend just on the viewfinder in dark environents or with large aperture values since it will brighten up the picture with standard viewfinder settings. Look at the exposure indicator, should be around 0.
    • When I shoot "street" with adapted lenses I use f8 - f11, if I want utilize max aperture (1.2 - 1.8) I try to focus without focus peaking as it might cheat you.
    • Finally picked up an XF 100-400mm after looking for a good deal for a while and took it out for a spin this weekend. Fired off a few tests shots and they seemed fine but then everything after that was heavily under exposed to the point I could barely make out the image. Nothing was changed in any major way in terms of manual settings and if I switched to a different lens the issue was gone and all images appeared in view mode as they appeared through the viewfinder when taken. Back to the 100-400 and switched to auto mode and then all the photos were fine but everything I shot with manual settings was under exposed again. Am I missing something? It seems like it's purely a lens issue and nothing to do with the settings as I tried 3 other lenses and didn't have any issues with any of them. I'm at a loss here and would love some help. I'm hoping it's just something really easy I've overlooked.. (Shooting with an X-Pro 2)
    • I like buying local. But I also like to check internet prices. and I also dont like getting bent over on pricing but once again I like to support our local stores. I called a local camera shop and the price was close to double what ebays new pricing is. Is there a difference in actual Fuji lenses like where they are made or quality differences? In the same lens  Thanks for any help Rick
