GFX 100s randomly goes dark/sleep


Recommended Posts

I've had the GFX 100s for about 6 months now and it has randomly gone dark on me while shooting (happened three times).

What I mean by "gone dark" is; the shoot is going well then all of a sudden when I press the shutter, it doesn't take a picture, the screen goes dark, and the LED light just remains orange.

The first time it happened, it took about 5-8min before the camera "woke up". The other times, I've had to remove the battery.

Has this happened to anyone before? 

 

Thank you

In general: make sure you run the latest firmware (v1.31) and use Fuji recommended SD cards. It's a drag, but Fuji is incredibly sensitive to 'the right' SD cards. I've had the same issue when I had a GFX100S on trial for a few days. I wasn't able to 'solve it definitively' because I didn't keep the camera long enough.
