Fujifilm XT5 not recording all images on SD card

Pete Edwards

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a Fujifilm XT5 after owning a XT2 for many years.  I purchased new SanDisk extreme pro 256gb cards (200 mbs) and formatted them in the camera.  I was shooting in RAW only.  I took about 2000 frames and some MP4 video and they recorded on the SD card without any problem.  Without changing any settings, the camera took frames, however, these did not record any image on the SD card.  The images continue with a sequential file no and have data recorded on the SD card but when I tried to download them on my Windows computer, the frames download but there is no image visible.  Then later on the same SD card, the camera records images, which can be viewed and downloaded.

The frame is recorded on the SD card, but it cannot be viewed on the camera or on the computer.  The affected frames show as 'black' screens/images.

Any advice please?

Where did you purchase the cards?  Lot of counterfeits out there. Hopefully is a card issue.

Do you get an error when trying to view in camera or on PC, or they are just black images?
I’ve seen few posts for other Fujifilm cameras with similar issue but none of the ones I saw had a resolution.  I haven’t had this happen with my X-T5 fortunately. I usually shoot RAW + JPEG with Sandisk cards but don’t have any 256 cards. Sucks to lose images.

    • Thanks. I initialized the camera and went ahead and entered all my settings again. Things seems to be working ok, now.
    • Do you have a Custom Setting Selected? https://fujifilm-dsc.com/en/manual/x-t5/menu_shooting/image_quality_setting/#select_custom_setting If so then you need to edit that custom setting to remove the functions you don't want https://fujifilm-dsc.com/en/manual/x-t5/menu_shooting/image_quality_setting/#edit-save_custom_setting As an alternative you can enable Auto Update Custom Setting and then any changes you make will be remembered when the camera is turned off https://fujifilm-dsc.com/en/manual/x-t5/menu_shooting/image_quality_setting/#auto_update_custom_setting
    • 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)
