problems with xt3

Recommended Posts

Hallo everyone!! I would like your feedback on some issues I have been experiencing, and sadly not good ones ☹ One of my x cameras, an xt3 has died on me. Has anyone experienced any problems and denied service of their camera just because it was not purchased in the country or region of residence (not talking about warranty)? Also has anyone had his camera die on him after installing a new firmware? Has anyone’s camera repeatedly set itself back to factory settings? The camera stuck and eventually not working at all?

Was the camera purchased from a Fujifilm authorised retailer?

In the UK the situation is a bit ambiguous - it doesn't specifically say if grey imports will be accepted for paid repair:

For products that are under warranty - Many countries have different warranty terms therefore we would review all warranty claims on a case-by-case basis. Please contact our support team on 0344 553 2321 or email csd_uk@fujifilm.com and a member of our team will be happy to help. For products outside of warranty - Please visit our website to book a chargeable repair. If your product was found to be purchased from a non-authorised retailer, it may be considered to be a grey import. In these cases, FUJIFILM UK reserve the right to reject the warranty.

I had a problem with a 10-24mm lens that was a grey import from Hong Kong. It was repaired with no issues, but of course I had to pay. I live in the UK. I have had no problems like yours with my X-T3. It sounds to me that something went wrong during  the firmware upgrade and the rest followed from that.

    • I'm four months in and love my X-T5, no problems at all.  For me it came down to format choice, APSC.  The brand choice became Sony or Fuji as Canon lens selection seems lacking.  Then read up strengths and weaknesses of the two.  But physically looking at the camera made the difference.  I have XL hands and the Sony actually felt too small to hold.  I preferred Fuji handling but the big difference was the dials.  I could see how to adjust ISO, aperture, and shutter speed without instruction.  Took me back to days of shooting film.  I just wanted to use it.  I don't like wading through menus and I don't have to with this camera.  It has a ton of features I haven't used but I appreciate that I can go out and have fun, taking great stills, and learning the advanced stuff at a very slow pace.  I've only shot a couple videos and have no idea what to do with the histogram.  I'm not sure I care, love the camera.  As for 4 vs. 5, that's hard to say.  I don't want to video of myself so I prefer the tilt screen on the 5.  The resolution increase isn't a bad thing, I trim my shots quite of bit and more res helps with that.  I kinda wanted the latest and hopefully greatest.  But if the dollar savings is enough to help out your lens budget then go for it.
    • Sorry dumb question, I have it sorted
    • Here is a short segment explaining some good and bad things about each of the shutter types Fujifilm uses. https://fujifilm-x.com/en-us/exposure-center/types-of-shutters/ Your X-T10 does not have all of the different types, but give each of those it does have a try and see if you like them. Enjoy your new camera!
    • Why is the Monochromatic color item not available in the Image Quality menu on my X-T30II? Thanks
    • Like others have stated, it happens and can happen to any brand make or model. All industries are subject. I have had my X-T5 for 2 months and it is perfect. I come from Canon FF both EF and RF and Nikon for analog, all companies and segments with incredibly high QC rates. This Fuji is the same, from mechanical to software, top marks.  If you look for negative reviews, you will find them. Complainers are 10x more likely to voice an opinion than those satisfied.
