AMATEUR alert. When I depress shutter button on my XT1, indicator light blinks orange and it wont take a photo. The flash is closed, memory card not full, and it isn't writing a previous photo to the card. Its in mode P. Any ideas what could be wrong?
I just got this camera last week through Rand's Camera on Amazon (not sure if anyone has used or heard of them before). I'm still weighing whether or not I should try and return/exchange the camera, as he came with a slightly damaged box, the manual sitting between the outer folds of the box, and little peculiar things like the metal rings for the strap already being attached to the camera. I've started a dialogue with Amazon over this, as it was sold new but appears to have been at least somewhat handled already.
So, I'm keeping an eye on its behavior to see if I notice anything weird and I've run into my first hitch. When transferring photos from the camera to my phone (Samsung Galaxy S8+), the transfer will sometimes stall but still appear as though it's trying to process photos on my phone. I can cancel in the app on my phone and quit the app itself, but I can't back out of the transfer screen on my camera at all. I'm attaching a screenshot of what I see.
The only way I've been able to get around this is to remove the battery and put it back in. Turning the camera off and on again does not cancel the transfer.
Has anyone else run into this? Is this a known or common issue, or should I be leaning on the side of returning this camera and purchasing from another seller?
I've been having an issue with my X-T2 for about 6 months now. A week after purchasing the camera brand new, the speaker had stopped working. No AF sounds, ES sounds, or sound from video playback. Yesterday, the sound came back for one minute for the first time in 6 months, but it went back to no sound quickly after. I've turned the sound settings on and off, updated to latest firmware, and still no success. The camera has not taken any damage that would cause this issue. Does anyone have suggestions or advice to get sound working again? I really don't want to have the camera serviced especially since I'm in India with warranty for Japan.
I've got problem with my Xt1, normally when I turn on my cam and start photo, the first few images were good and no issue. However, when a certain period of usage, I noticed very fine horizontal lines on the screen. It is not just on the screen or evf. It was visible as well in the output photos. Hope do you have any idea what's happening with my Xt1. Please see the attached sample image. Any advise for resolution. Thank you.
I’ve been using Fuji since they introduced the X-E1. Over the years since I have had a number of Fuji bodies and lenses but have settled on an X-T2 and an X-E2s with various prime lenses. I have always found Fuji to be a great system to work with and have earned much of my income from their products.
The lineage of each model seemed logical and each new version made progressive improvements such as improved AF or resolution for example. You can tell that the X-E2s is progression from the original X-E1 with nicely thought out additions or upgrades. The X-T2 is such a nice camera and certainly a step up from the X-T1. So far, so good.
In my mind at least the line up worked something like X-A cameras for amateurs, casual shooters, etc. The X-T10/20 for the more trendy photographer, someone who liked innovation such as touch screens and blue tooth and the cute look of the camera. The X-E cameras for the expert photographer, the person who liked the rangefinder styling and the smaller size for travelling and discrete photography, a street photographers camera perhaps. the X-T range for the more demanding photographer, someone who wanted a more professional kind of camera in a DSLR style and the X-Pro for the same kind of photographer who preferred a rangefinder kind of camera. I’m probably wildly wrong here but at least it’s a stab at my understanding the lineage of the various Fuji offerings.
Then came the X-E3 and messed it all up for me. Here was a camera that looked like an X-E camera but seemed more at home in a X-T20s? In the lineage, instead of a progression, someone seems to have left the logical path and gone off track with this camera. In my mind at least, the X-E3 should have been an upgrade from the X-E2s. Perhaps a X-E2s with the X-T2 sensor and AF but with the XT-20 flippy screen and IBIS. I can see how introducing bluetooth connectivity with a tablet and touch screens would appeal to an X-T20 user perhaps but where is the camera for the X-E1, X-E2 and X-E2s user?
I’m trying desperately hard to find the good in the X-E3 and I will try one out but it simply does not appeal to me right now. I feel that Fuji have spoilt a good thing by letting someone introduce trendy features onto something that was historically more traditional. It would be a shame if Fuji lost their vision after all the success they have had to date.
