X100Vi Focus Error with Nisi and Hoage Hood/Filter


Recommended Posts

Used both the Nisi and Hoage all in one type hood/filters with my X100V without any issues. Kept both when I sold my X100v after my X100Vi arrived.  Both seemed fine until I needed to do some shots at the minimum focus distance. Both filters produced the Focus Error and so I tried the same shot without a filter and also using Hoage filter adaptor and fujifilm uv filter without any issue.  I’m wondering if the extra thread on the camera lens is to give more space for filter adaptors and filters and if the lens extends slightly further when at min focus distance than the V lens did? So this is just a FYI for anyone with these filters on the Vi. Has anyone else experienced any issues? I’m pretty sure it’s not the camera as I can’t replicate the error without a filter or with a filter adaptor and separate filter.

Do you mean that the camera reports a focus error or that it misfocusses? I have the the Haoge LUV-X54B and haven't had error messages - it also appears to focus properly up close - although I haven't specifically measured the shortest distance.

It shows a focus error and locks up until switched off and on again.  Only happens during or immediately after close focusing and in particular when using optical viewfinder if that helps. But crucially it doesn’t report an error if no hood / filter attached. I have tried with Fuji and Hoage filter adaptors plus a uv and it’s fine. Only does it with the Hoage and Nisi all in one models

I get the error as well with the Nisi all in one kit on my x100vi. It’s because the lens touches the built in UV filter when focusing at minimum distance. I love the kit, but it’s disappointing because it was quite expensive and I don’t want to use it and damage the camera

Hi. Sorry to hear you have the same issue. But also good to know it’s not just me as many have suggested! There is definitely an issue with Nisi. I just ordered and received the Nisi square hood and filter adaptor which they have updated their website to say is compatible BUT it’s not! I have now been asked by them to submit video of the error to their WhatsApp customer service number and they are looking into it. If you have WhatsApp and want to do the same so they might actually realise there is a problem their customer service team are on +44 7723 860624 (WhatsApp).  Here’s a photo showing their filter thread v other companies filter adaptor. Nisi on the left. Clearly not enough room for the lens to move

Please checkout the videos on this link.  This is testing the NiSi UV with lens hood and UV from that kit at and below minimum focus. You can see there is no lens errors.

Well I have a video I have taken that completely proves there's a problem! Filter is absolutely NOT right and the lens hits it. It's not anecdotal - it's absolute fact. Happens several times, it's repeatable and a fault of the product.

On the vi Fujifilm did make some very minor changes to the lens my square hood doesn’t quite fit a snugly as it did on  my v  square hood have redesigned their hood it was about a 1mm gap don’t know it that might be part of the issue your having

    • Interesting to hear about the heat issue and sorry for your experiencing it. On the Oregon coast we don't have to worry about heat as it rarely gets above 76 deg. F. I had an opportunity to field test mine on a 7.1 mile hike in the woods of the Oregon coast. We climbed 1,300 feet with different temperature zones on each side of the mountain.  The first thing I noticed is how the closeness of the controls on the small body make it easy to push buttons or hit the shutter button when taking it out and putting it in a bag. It can make for some interesting things appearing in the viewfinder that have to be reset before taking a picture. The size of it is really requiring a different way of handling it. I've owned an X-T10 and I don't remember it being this fiddly. The shutter button release is stiff compared to my X-H2s with its smooth release and the stiffness sometimes made me push a little to hard to get it to focus and I ended up with out of focus images from pushing too hard and tripping the shutter. I really like the sim choice dial as it has a cool semi circle display that shows the film sim selected and a picture of the film canister. I also really like Reala Ace and it has become my fav sim. It will be nice when it is available for my X-H2s. I also did some bird photography with it and my 150-600 and really like the built in digital tele convertors. I noticed very little image degradation even with the 2X multiplier. The issue is the size of the camera to the size of the lens making it difficult to balance so I'll be staying with the X-H2s combo in the future and use the X-T50 for hikes, travel and landscapes. So overall, as with any camera, there are things to like and dislike based on personal preference. What I'm most disappointed in is DXO PR4 not recognizing the files. I'd publish some images but I don't like the way they appear on this site and it wouldn't be a good representation. I will also add to my review from time to time as I use the camera more.
    • 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.
