x100v sensor dust?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

I got this x100v couple of days back and just out of curiosity I did the sensor dust test. I shot at the the highest aperture f/16, ISO 160 and shutter speed of 1 sec on a white paper. 
I imported those images on my computer and played around with exposure on darkroom.
I am seeing a back spot at the center and a little spot left to the it. I even took couple of images of the sky at the same setting and noticed those spots too. 
I am thinking about returning this camera. Please advice on the images and what to do  next . 
Here are the links to images

Man, that is dead center!  Haven't seen that before.  Have you checked the front element closely?  That's so odd.  Depending on where you are, if it's not on the lens I'd reach out to Fuji. I'm assuming you bought the camera second hand?  Did it have a limited warranty? If new, then return it.

I would recommend another digital camera system (Nikon). Fujifilm is unfortunately known for the fact that the dirt sits between the layers of the sensor and cannot be removed. I myself have 3 Fujifilm digital cameras concerning this serious problem.

I don't understand.  Seriously.  I shoot several X series, plus GFX.  The ONLY sensor I have ever had to clean was my XT1 back in 2018 and that was only because I was at a camera store and they offered to do it for free.  I shoot everywhere from the rainforests and jungles of Costa Rica, Florida, Iceland, Yukon, Alaska, etc and switch lenses often.  I also shoot at F11-F16 80% of the time.  I'm careful about where and how I swap lenses, but I haven't had the dust issues you guys have experienced.  Maybe I've been lucky.  Just me standing on my soapbox.  I'm finished.  LOL

    • Very rare, but lens is WR and Red Badge so it should not happen with brand new lens. Maybe i'll try send it to Fuji service center. I had similar problem with new x-h2s which had a smudge visible on photos even on very wide apertures and send it to fuji becasue blowing and cleaning by swabs not helped. They change filter on the sensor under warranty and now everything is ok.
    • I have read so much thru the months (years?) re: sharpening fuji files (XTrans sensor) and everyone seems to have an answer. ¬† Here are some questions/comments for clarification: 1. If one is printing, does the issue of Fuji file sharpening in LR go away? ¬†I know there is some basic sharpening etc. I heard that the sharpening issue is more for the website or posting.¬† 2. If I use enhance and it creates a DNG file, the issue of 'worms' is a moot point, correct? ¬†the file is no longer an Xtrans file. 3. Is it better to sharpen in PS versus LR? 4. Here Is MY LATEST APPROACH to SHARPENIING for a website.¬† Use enhance and it creates a DNG file.¬† Go to DETAIL in LR. ¬† Bring detail to 0 or way down from default 25 ( some say this is where the oversharpening occurs) Change¬†Radius from .5-1.0 Mask: ¬†Some say approx 30%. ¬†others say 80%¬† Amount of sharpening: ¬†Anywhere from 30% on up?? ¬†This is also confusing.¬† It would be great to get clarification from Fuji - it creates a lot of confusion. I want to stick with Lightroom.¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†
    • Hi, this is my first post here I've created an online catalog and hope you enjoy it. All pictures taken with my X-T3 and a XF 80 lens: https://mount-sushi.com/netsuke/gallery/index.html Suggestions for improvement etc. are welcome. I'm not a professional photographer, and these sculptures are really small ... Thank you.
    • Hi Friends - I have been using Fuji XT2 since 2017. Only recently, the Fujifilm Camera Remote app for android is causing a problem. Every time I connect the Camera Remote app to my XT2, the picture format shifts to square format. Now, we know, there is no setting to change the picture format in the Camera Remote app. I am unable to use the Camera Remote app, as square is not a format I need to shoot in. Any suggestions will be of great help! Some information: I am using One Plus phone, and the version of my¬†Camera Remote app is 4.6.1 (build
