Eye Sensor won't switch to LCD from EVF

Recommended Posts

I was hoping someone may have an idea before I try to reset the camera.


I have always used the Eye Sensor setting and it has worked without issue.


This Christmas I switched to just LCD because I let me wife and mother-in-law take a few pictures. I noticed that the flash stuck (before I handed it to them to use) and would not flip up by itself. I needed to put my fingernail in the gap to help it open. Coincidentally, when I switched it back to Eye Sensor mode, the camera no longer switches to the LCD. It stays on Eye Sensor. Also, EVF + Eye Sensor does not seem to turn off the EVF. I can see into it when I hold it at arms length.


Is there an issue with my camera? I keep it in an ONA bag when not in use and I don't remember it hitting anything and definitely not falling.


I have tried cleaning the sensor, but that did nothing.


BTW, the LCD works fine if I turn it to that setting.

Check the shooting mode dial. EVF+Eye Sensor only works in S, CL, CH, BKT1, and BKT2 modes. In ADV1, ADV2, Multiple-exposure, and Panorama modes it leaves the EVF on.


No, I have no clue why that is.


However, normal Eye Sensor mode should switch between EVF and LCD in all shooting modes.

Hi, Hakeem.


I successfully sent in the body for warranty work.


I don't have the work order in front of me, but I remember that they replaced the entire top portion of the camera. I had it back in less than 2 weeks. Maybe 10 days or so.


Camera has been working fine ever since.

    • Nice. Which one was taken with X100F?
    • Father and Sons in Yellow Shirts - Dhaka, Bangladesh Fujifilm X-T3 - XF18-55mm f2.8-4 R LM OIS - Fujifilm Classic Negative Color Film Sim  
    • I can confirm this. My X100V had the same as do some of my other XF WR lenses. The fact that some lenses do and others don't (same lens) leads me to believe that Fuji has quite wide production tolerances. Over the past 7 years I've had (partly still have) 13 different XF lenses. 4 of them needed replacement due to production failures (loose aperture or focus rings, crooked mount...). Though I really like Fuji cameras, to me that is a bit too often...
    • It's quite a difference. As a basis the Leica Q2 already has a very good 47Mp full-frame sensor paired with one of the best lenses ever made (a 28mm Summilux). By leaving out the color array filter on the sensor and optimizing the sensor lenses for monochrome images, you get an incredibly sharp and contrast rich monochrome image. Without the color array filter you also boost the low light performance and expand the dynamic range of the sensor by approx. 2 stops. In the meanwhile, I couldn't resist and purchased a Q2 Monochrome. I'm not disappointed. Though my X-Pro produces very nice Acros files, the Q2 Monochrome is a different league (also in price to be fair). I usually shoot monochrome for my personal work, but to be able to shoot at ISO25000 and have files as clean as an X-Pro at ISO1600 is amazing. At normal ISO levels, the level of detail and the tonality of the Q2 files is stunning. Both for the jpegs out-of-camera and the DNG raw files via Capture One.
    • I use Blender, it's an open source program, free to use and many good tutorials on YouTube. The program is also used by professional moviemakers. It does the same or more as the apps recommended above. link to Blender Edit: Davinci Resolve is another free video editor worth trying.
