Is this a mark on my actual sensor?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, 

I've cleaned my sensor multiple times and double checked it. This line shown in the photo only appears on my camera wen the aperture is f 2.8 or higher.

Looks like mark on the menu, not the sensor.

It’s not. I tried multiple lenses and it’s present in all types of photos. Here is the mark on the sensor after wet cleaning.

Perhaps try a different brand of sensor wipes and fluid. (Uh, I am not not trying to start a brand wars discussion, so I will just use the term different brand.) 

Once upon a time a bug flew down my telescope and landed on the sensor and left a trail where it walked around that looked similar to what you are seeing. The trail only showed at certain f-stops. I could not get it cleaned off after using a lot of wipes and fluid. My local camera store person recommended trying a different brand. One pass with a dry swab (the usual approach for the new brand) and one pass with fluid and the mark was gone. I did use more pressure on the swabs than before.

If the mark is on the sensor or on the inside of the protective glass, it would have been there from the start. This will need a trip to the service center to fix, but it can be fixed.

    • 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.
    • Agree with Jerryy..........I use the 70-300 A LOT and love it.  I have the 1.4 TC and I rarely use it, I find the lack of light to be limiting.  I recently bought the 150-600 Fuji lens and it is wonderful, super reach and super sharp.  A bit heavy to carry around so I still carry the 70-300 most of the time.  When I do take the 150-600 with me, I've been amazed with the results.
