Hello. 

I am new here and was pretty new with my camera. Unfortunately on recent trip to france it was little drowned in river.

It start to work after 2 days, but i have some problems:

- Focus doesn't work, after pressing shutter button in halfway it should start to interpret picture, but this is doesn't happens. No focus at all 

- Battery die when camera turned off. After turning off camera it still sinking battery and if i left it for one night battery gonna die. 

 

So question, which i have: 

- Is it any way to turn focus in settings? May be it some programm error? (Tryed reset already)

- Is there any way to repair camera or should i start to think about buying new one?
 
May be someone have been in same situation? Thanks

Try leaving the camera without the battery, and with the battery door open, for 15-20 days sealed in a Tupperware or similar container on top of 1/2 Kg of rice (not necessary but recommended: rest the camera on a piece of cellophane or aluminum foil so that rice powder doesn't enter in it).

 

Rice absorb humidity like crazy, and some of your problems might be humidity-related.

 

If this doesn't work then I'm afraid you will have to send it off for repair.

 

Good luck!

I agree.  Best thing is just to set it aside in rice and forget about it for a month or so.  Sometimes this will work.  I've had it work with all matter of electronics, some of which I'm still using today years after they were exposed to water.  I once laundered an iPod.  Presoak, hi heat dry and everything.  I set it in a bag of rice for a month and to this day that iPod works like a charm.

 

Best of luck to you.

      Hello everyone, 
      First post on this forum so let me introduce myself : Nicolas, fuji x100 user when this camera was released, sold it and regret it, fuji x100f user for a month.
      I would like to report an odd behavior which is supposed to be fixed in the latest firmware as per Fuji detailed report here https://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/firmware/x/x100f/history.html
      0/ my fuji X100F is running the latest firmware (2.11)
      1/ In manual focus mode:
      2/ Whether:
      I use the AEL/AFL button to acquire focus Or use the front ring to manually focus (the area in focus is highlighted with the focus peak option so I know precisely what is in focus)
      3/ AND focusing at short distance (less than 50 cm)
      4/ AND using any aperture smaller than f/2.0 (the smallest the aperture, the biggest lens moves: see point 5/ below)
      5/ When I press the shutter button, the lens slightly moves (obvious move) before the picture is acquired, thus ruining what is in focus.
      I have repeated the same process in AF/S and everything works fine.
      Anyone experienced this behavior?
      Do you know if the fuji website has a link to submit incident request?
      Thanks for reading !

      Anyone having/had problems with factory standard settings, brand new x-t3 with kit 18-55 lens and focus hunting? I cant find anything online about this so assumed it was me...until I showed Fuji.
      Lens fully zoomed in on a parking lot, no moving cars, or trees, shot in daylight, plenty to focus on (IE not a white wall), using factory set focus settings straight after a reset of camera, OIS on or off made no difference, ISO auto, shutter @ 1/60, aperture manual, 4k30, shot handheld, AF-C, UV filter on lens, focus point was central in frame (nothing moving) and about 20 meters away and nothing in between camera lens and focus point (trees).
      To try and find out what was causing the problem I set the aperture to f20 = approx 2 second hunting frequency (from completely blurry to sharp, IE not a small hunt, its like it moves from extreme to extreme). As I reduce the aperture towards f16, frequency increases to say 0.5 seconds and then at f10 its not possible to see on the camera screen that there is hunting.
      My test seems to show its aperture & zoom related, regardless, I cant accept that this is ok.
      Above video in question was shot at the Fuji HO in South Africa to demonstrate the problem to Fuji so I don't have the video at the moment because I sent the camera in due to this hunting problem. They still don't know what the problem might be so I thought I would reach out and see if anyone can reproduce my problem so I can help Fuji help me solve my problem.
      I have had a consistent problem with focus on the camera with a hit rate of probably 60%, video & photo. Even when the camera locks focus in AF-S mode, stationary scene, eye focus mode on and face mode on, photo mode, the camera will miss the shot and focus on the rear of the head region while it tells me its focused on the eye when clicking the rear dial in to show the focus point.
      Any insight would be appreciate!
