I just bought recently a used Fuji X-T2 (2 years old) with very few shots (the camera is in like new condition), the camera is perfect for my kind of use (as a hobby) but I came across with a huge problem: when the battery is at 80% or less and using the mechanical shutter, after pressing the shutter button to take a photo the camera goes completely black on the LCD and EVF and freezes. I can't even turn off the camera and need to remove and replace the battery. It just crashes every single time I try shooting with mechanical shutter. Using the electronic shutter the camera works normally.
Using the mechanical shutter, the camera works perfectly only when the battery is fully charged.
Both firmwares (Body and Lens) are updated with the last version available.
Please, if anyone could tell me something about this problem I would appreciate that!
Hello there! I am new to this forum and a proud owner of an X-T2.
Last night I wished to try interval timer shooting to stack some star tracks, so I programmed my gear for 545 1-second exposures each separated by 10 seconds, at ISO 1000. OIS was off, AF was set to manual with focus set at infinity and aperture also set to manual, at the widest setting for the lens. The body firmware version is 4.30 and the battery was fully charged.
When the shooting was over, I was disappointed to see that only 292 exposures had been taken instead of the 545 I had keyed in.
There has no firmware update since 2018. One of the touted benefits of fuji is that it continues to upgrade cameras via firmware upgrades. There have been several for the X-T3 and now the X-T4 has been announced. Does this mean there will no further upgrades for the X-T2?
That probably is a safety feature, USB-C delivers 15 watts of power = 5 volts at 3 Amps.
USB-C with PD Gives 100 watts = 20 volts at 5 amps.
If something goes wrong, either one of these is more than enough to send you ‘pining for the fjords’.
So if you shoot in high speed shooting, either 100p to 50p or 100p to 25p, and use a 1/100th shutter speed, the screen is almost black, like the shutter speed is 1/4000th. Crank up one step to 1/120th shutter speed and the image is exposed, and each step up slighty darkens 1/3rd of a stop like it should. 120p high speed is fine, but the 100p and 1/100th shutter speed doesn't work.
