Is it worth fixing a GFX 100s sensor?


Recommended Posts

I've got a sensor on a GFX100s that seems to have bad pixels / bright pixels that are not controlled by the pixel mapping in the firmware.  Pixel mapping improves the images temporarily but even after mapping does not completely remove bad pixels.  Although this problem became significantly stronger a couple of weeks after the one year warranty ended I can see them in low key shots at least sas early as six months after purchasing the camera. 

Other than I'm disappointed Fujifilm does not seem to consider this a defective sensor but an out of warranty situation with the cost on me.  I find it alarming that the most expensive body I've bought lasted for such a short time - especially after the research I did when I switched to Fujifilm suggested they had strong builds and quality control.  I would really appreciate comments on experiences with other GFX sensor problems becasue at this point I cannot justify spending that much money to fix something that has failed so quickly.  This is night and day difference in my experience with previous cameras and their manufacturers.

Thanks,  John

    • Do you have natural live view turned on? https://fujiframe.com/articles/natural-live-view That will affect what you get in the evf and lcd. p.s. Welcome to the forum.
    • Does this: https://www.fujirumors.com/lastest-firmware-introduces-autofocus-bug-to-fujifilm-x-t5-x-h2-and-x-h2s-annoying-but-easily-fixable/ have anything to do with what you are getting? Fujirumors says a fix should be coming in the July -August time period.
    • Hi, I have recently bought a Tamron 17-70 F2.8 lens for by X-E1 body (correct Fuji X mount). It works very well, apart from pictures at a very specific focal length: around 26.2mm. I get JPGs like the attached one, DSCF8419.JPG. If I change the focal length slightly it is ok, DSCF8420.JPG was taken at 28.4mm. Weirdly, I am able to develop RAW from the first file (I use darktable) even though the RAW miniature looks similarly wrong. The link to the RAW: https://photo.borucik.pl/files/error.RAF I have bought a brand new SD card, formatted it, did not improve the situation. Is it some kind of incompatibility between body / lens? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    • That is baffling - I'm assuming you get the same problem with different lenses? Focus Priority release wouldn't help but you already said you tried with Focus Priority focus. You seem to have animal subject detection turned on - but again that shouldn't make any difference - the camera is reporting that its trying to focus on the blurred figure just right of centre. What do you see on the screen or through the viewfinder - did the image look sharp in the image you put on Dropbox? All I can suggest is to completely reset all settings and try again with the 16-80 lens (you can back the settings up using the XApp or the Fujifilm X Acquire software if you don't want to lose them) - check if the subject appears sharp in the viewfinder. Turn off the touch screen (just in case - but I doubt it will make any difference because the camera was trying to focus on the figure in your posted sample).
    • I had the same issue which was resolved by Nisi customer support (small batch had slight defect).
