X-T10 noisy LCD/EVF in low light?


Recommended Posts

Hi, sorry if this is a repeat post. I'm new to the X-T10 and was wondering if it's usual to have a LOT of noise/grain in the EVF and LCD in lowlight/dark conditions? I was hoping to photograph the moon last night, but could barely see anything on the screen or in the EVF when trying to compose the shot due to all the noise. Is this normal for the X-T10?


I realise it probably boosts the gain up in lowlight conditions, but it made it pretty impossible to focus or frame anything at all unless I half pressed the shutter release.

It's a lovely camera, and this is gutting if this is the case and not a faulty model as I love night photography.

Do you have focus peaking on? That is likely to be the culprit. For some reason Fuji's focus peaking goes mad in low light and starts adding peaked 'pixels' all over the view giving it the impression of lots of noise. Go into your settings and make sure this is disabled, then try again and see what it's like.

Hi, thanks for the response.


No, no focus peaking on. I've tried pretty much every combination of iso, shutter speed, aperture, PASM, switching to Auto, switching off the exposure preview... everything I can think of. Hence asking here.

I drove out to a store last night to have a look at their display model. I couldn't quite get it in the same environments I have issues with, but it was certainly less fuzzy. Even sticking the lens cap on to *try* and simulate pitch black, the screen had hardly any snow at all. Mine goes crazy.

Think mine's just a bit sensitive.

Bummer... sorry to hear that. When I had my X-T10 I remember the EVF being a little bit noisy in low light (as to be expected), but not as bad as you describe.  Hopefully after the hassle of returning it and getting it replaced you will be a lot happier.

I had same problem with X-E2. Service department at fujifilm did not see my problem, twice, but i got it exchanged to another unit that was much better.

Still not perfect but ok.

My X-Pro1 dont have this noice at all so it must be the EVF in xe2/xt10.


I suggest you get it fixed.
