X-H2 Rear Command Dial Resistance - Abnormal?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I recently purchased a used X-H2 from a reputable ebay seller (old account, plenty of sales, and no negative reviews). The camera pretty much looks brand new and was advertised as "Like New / Perfect Condition." It was packed exceptionally well and the box arrived in great condition.

Unfortunately, the rear command dial is much more resistant than the front one and almost seems to get lightly stuck while rotating it... I'm trying to give the seller the benefit of the doubt here, but it feels quite awful to me and it would be shocking to me if they hadn't noticed this... The front dial feels much better.

The seller doesn't accept returns so I'd probably have to escalate this issue and don't want to do so if this a common issue that I should have known about. Does anyone else have this issue on their X-H2? This can't be normal right?

I noticed that too on my XH-2 brand new from day one, I come from Nikon brand where dials are smoother, however in the long run (2 years of use) I don't find it objectionable beside most of the time I prefer instead to use the aperture ring on my lense. Overall I am happy with the ergonomics of the Fuji.

    • 92•F is 33•C and that is pretty damn hot where I come from. If the camera was on the whole time, maybe it could have reached the warning limit without actually having a fault. I don’t know. You did not say which country you are in, I presume USA. The number would be 1-800-800-3854.  https://fujifilm-x.com/en-us/repair-and-product-support/
    • I received my X-T50 two days ago.  I did not have time to take it out until this afternoon.  It is hot today, but not excessively so.  My car thermometer indicated 93 deg F, and the weather app on my phone said 92. I took 30 photos in a span of about 45 minutes.  The camera started feeling very warm and a warning appeared saying I was approaching the high temperature limit.  This would make sense if I were taking videos, but these were just still photos.  Does it seem strange to anyone else that the camera would reach such a high temp at 92-93 degrees ambient temperature?  I have another question. I was looking for a support phone number or email on the Fujifilm website but could not find one.  Does anyone know how to contact Fujifilm support to inquire about this high temperature condition?
    • Something does not seem right. Uncompressed raw files for the X-T5 are supposed to be around 80MB, call it 85MB just to be safe in that assumption. 183 x 85MB = 15555MB, which is about 15.6GB. Even if you are using full sized, fine jpg along with the uncompressed raw files, you would not come close to filling a newly formatted 64GB card with 183 shots. Maybe try a new card?
    • Sometimes, issues like these can be complex and difficult to diagnose, especially if they're intermittent.
    • Agree with Jerryy..........I use the 70-300 A LOT and love it.  I have the 1.4 TC and I rarely use it, I find the lack of light to be limiting.  I recently bought the 150-600 Fuji lens and it is wonderful, super reach and super sharp.  A bit heavy to carry around so I still carry the 70-300 most of the time.  When I do take the 150-600 with me, I've been amazed with the results.
