Hi, my name is Steven. A Kiwi/New Zealander expat currently living in Singapore. Have been shooting analogue for years then took a break with just my point-and-shoot, and have just bought an X-T3 - my first really serious camera and digi setup. So, still learning the camera itself as well as the technology. Just realised I made myself sound about 80 years old, which I’m not!! Looking forward to absorbing the collective wisdom of the members and viewing some amazing work.
None of the functions on my Fuji X-T3 work when the DJI Ronin SC is on. I can’t change the shutter speed, ISO, aperture, etc. The Ronin SC works fine but once it’s on, the camera stops functioning. When I press the record button on the gimbal, it locks focus but doesn’t take a picture. I have to hold down the record button on the gimbal for 3+ seconds for it to work. The camera screen even dims after a few seconds as if it’s not in use.
I've tried doing a Shooting Menu Reset and Set-Up Reset on the camera. The connection mode is set to USB Tether Shooting Auto. I've tried removing and replacing the lens, battery, and SD card. Everything has the latest updates. The USB-C cables are plugged in properly and all the way. Has anyone had this issue and knows how to solve it?
Ronin SC Firmware: 18.104.22.168
Ronin App Version: 1.4.5(1451)
Fuji X-T3 Body Version: 4.00
Fuji 16mm 1.4 Version: 1.01

So I just updated my X-T3 to the firmware Ver.4.00 and I can't charge the camera via my USB-C Apple wall plug.
No green light on the back of the camera but the white plug symbol does appear when plugged in.
The only time when the X-T3 is charging via USB is when the camera is turned OFF and connected to my MacBook Pro or Powerbank.
Does anyone else experience this problem?
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!

As a newborn X shooter (X-T2) I'm really impressed and happy with the system.
It's been an absolute Joy.
My only negative - and it's a rather small one- is about the buttons in the back. Coming from Nikon I can't help but to think that the buttons on the Fuji cameras seem a bit small and dare I Day it; "flimsy"... I use back button Focus when shooting so having better quality and larger more pronounced buttons would be great. It would make the system perfect for my use.
What is your opinion about the buttons? Do you feel the same or am I wrong? Would love your view and input.

Any update on this issue? My xpro3 was purchased earlier this year, still under warranty. But I cannot turn it on at all. After a shoot last Saturday, I left it on its shelf and picked it up to shoot this morning: totally unresponsive. Tried 4 different Fuji batteries all charged. No luck. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you.
The reply I received from Fuji back a while ago “Thank you for your patience regarding this issue. After speaking to our camera service engineers, they told me there is no coating on the new cameras and while the new LCD panels have a similar colour gamut, they are no longer calibrated by the factory in the same way that they used to be. They believe this changed around the end of 2019 but they weren't sure. Nothing that should make a black and white image look sepia though, the LCD will be slightly warmer out of the box. In the same way that most TV screens and monitors are not colour calibrated from the factory, the LCD screens on our cameras are not either and instead have the option to be adjusted manually by the end user to their preference. I appreciate this is probably not what you are looking for, but this is how the new generation of cameras are made” I tested a GFX50s I store that was traded in. No issues with the lcd - Seems the more money you spend the lcd is then properly calibrated. The lower end cameras under 1K they ain’t. very sad to see
I'm trying to understand the unmarked aperture ring on the K&F Concept lens adapter. I recently purchased the K&F Concept Minolta AF (Sony A) to Fuji X lens adapter to use with my old Minolta AF lenses; specifically the Minolta AF 50mm f1.7-f22. With the adapter installed (Fujifilm X-E2S), the camera does not show the aperture selected; understandably as this is a "dumb" adapter. The combination works very well together and I have no complaints. The adapter has a clicked aperture ring that allows for 9 stops from fully open to fully closed. Would the 9 stops equate to f1.7, f2, f2.8, f4, f5.6, f8, f11, f16, f22 for the Minolta AF 50mm f1.7-f22 lens? Many Thanks!
