xPro1 can't change aperture with fujinon 27mm


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I've got the first model of the Fujinon 27mm 2.8, but I can't seem to change the aperture on my X-Pro1.

I have the aperture setting set to auto+manual (camera menu 5), and I've tried it in manual mode alone, but it still won't let me change it. It works perfectly fine in auto mode. I also have it set to display the aperture on the screen, so I'm not sure if I have something configured incorrectly or what. I've looked up how others do it, but it's still not working for me. I've also tried it in A + rear wheel mode, but no luck. I've used the lens on the XT3 and I can change the aperture, but not on the X-Pro1.

Any ideas?

I have the same issue on my X-Pro 1 and can no longer use lenses with no aperture ring. I contacted Fuji Tech several years ago and was told the camera would have to be disassembled and the mother board replaced at a couple hundred dollars. I was also told Fuji would no longer be repairing X-P1 as they stopped making parts for them. I did not check to see if any third party repair shops could fix it. Everything else on the camera works fine.

Hi, thanks for getting back to me. It's a shame because my X-Pro1 works perfectly except for the aperture with the 27mm lens. I think it would be better to switch to the new WR version that allows aperture changes with the ring. Thanks for your help.

On another forum someone suggested spraying some electrical contact cleaner into the wheel but the Fuji tech said that could risk frying the rest of the cameras electrical so I haven't tried that.
