XT3 Shout counter remain the same after formatting

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, i'm Enzo an italian photographer. I have an issue with my xt3 and after asking to my other friends, collegues and the shop where I bought it, none of them have had this problem.

The issue is that when I format my SD cart (no matter which, I tried san disk, lexar and others of every speed), the shot counter remain the same even if the SD card is empty. For example if the counter is at 200 shots, and i format the SD card, it remains at 200 shots. If I shoot some photos it goes down until 0 and then it says that the card is full. Then I have to format again and it goes back to 204 shots.

Any of you had a similar issue? I'm afraid that I have to send to Fuji assistance, but I try here before.

Thank you!

I am asking a question to clarify things. Is this counter the one that is for shots remaining? The one that is in the top right of the display? Not the number that is given to an image when it is stored?

If it is the one in the top right, that is the ‘frames remaining’ indicator part of the standard information display that lets you know how many more shots you can take and store on your current card — using your current camera settings including whether or not the images are stored as raw or jpeg or both.

That number also depends on the capacity of the card, 64GB cards will have a higher number than 16GB cards.

You can change the setting that lets this be displayed by customizing the screen setup menu.

Your friends probably do not have that display option turned on.

    • Just got a new XT-5 which I upgraded to from the x100v. Have also used XT-3 and xPro-3, so am fairly familiar with the X series. The XT-5 is very nice… and a little perplexing. I turn off the face detection setting as well as interlock spot AE & focusing area because I don’t want to use those features. I turn the camera off, turn it back on, and, lo and behold, both those features are back on. Gremlins? Latest firmware up grade? I am at a loss. My BW film recipe has the two features turned off when I scroll through them on my Q saved menu items.  Any insight is appreciated and thanks.
    • I believe the only way to do this with the X100S is to switch the autofocus button to MF and use the AFL/AEL button. The X100S doesn't have the option for back button focus in AF mode like more recent X series camera models.
    • I don't think its possible - you could do the opposite (keep it on) with some tape - but not sure there is a way to keep it off (although like Jerryy says - it would certainly chew through the battery even if you could)
    • Hello...Could anyone explain, simply, how to set up back button focus on my X100S please..... Just when I think I've got it...it falls down! many thanks Terry
    • Okay, I will ask, how are you able to look at both of them at the same time? Keeping both on at the same time is a battery killer, these two electronic displays are movie camera televisions (monitors) to put it in a different view 😀, keeping them running constantly (continually updating) takes a lot of juice that then cannot be used to get more images. When you use options two or three, the eye sensor is “off”. A simple button push to swap between the two options when you need to use one over the other is fairly easy to do.
