Fuji XT2 / XT20 LCD & EVF screen flickering?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

  • Quite often, under artificial lights, the screen of both the LCD and the EVF of my Fuji XT20 is flickering/flashing quickly, making shooting unpleasant.
  • This video shows the issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWk6i_udD34
  • When I turn the camera OFF, then ON again, there is an intense flickering at the beginning, but all flickering disappears after 1 second (but the issue might occur again a few minutes later).
  • The issue is present in both normal and high performance mode.

1) Does this happens to anyone else? I would also be interested to know if you don't experience this issue.

2) If it is caused by the reaction of the LCD/EVF to the fluorescent/LED lighting operating at a certain frequency, why is the issue temporary resolved by turning the camera OFF, then ON again?


Thank you!

That doesn't look like flickering, that looks like the screen refresh rate changing based on brightness.  Make sure you have the latest firmware installed and it it persists send it in for service.

Actually I'm noticing similar issues on my X-T2 with the newest firmware.


I see it both in the EVF and LCD; especially around FL light sources it's really bad.  This looks exactly like seeing the raster line in the older TV screens when shot with a video camera, you'd get that faded line scrolling up and down based on frame-rate and shutter speed.  I'm also seeing noise patterns in low light.


I think there's a larger issue going on here.


I'm going to submit this as a service request and see what kind of response I get and post results here.

In contacting Fuji support they are unaware of this issue, however my unit does it and so does another copy that a local dealer has.  So apparently this is a hardware bug (maybe a firmware update will fix this?)


Here's my video showing it's existence in both EVF and LCD:




I've sent this info to Fuji and they're going to investigate, so if you have an X-T2 with this issue I'd highly suggest you contact Fuji support and fill out a Warranty Repair form (Google it) and send it in.

My X-T2 suffers the same problem. Not only artificial light, also bright daylight, sun, ...

Flickering occurs in "manual exposure preview on", with "off" there is no flickering. :D

Flickering occurs both in AF mode "S" and "M" - most interestingly :unsure: 

Using AF mode "C" flickering disappears :D

EVF Auto brightness yesterday triggered the problem, today issue comes in Auto brightness and also manual brightness... :o

power mode does not affect the issue.

      Hi all, I’m new to the forum. I’ve been using my x-t20 for a year now and I am really happy about its capabilities! There is just one little thing that totally annoys me every single time I use this camera. While using the EVF, my nose moves around the focus point, so damn annoying! I can’t find a way to change this, because I rather use the back buttons to move it around. Please please help me out on this one? Looking forward to your replies!

      Hello all, new member here . Last Saturday i went to do some astrophotos with my xt20 and my new 56 1.2. I would like to know if someone else have try to do some AP with this lens becouse i run in some issues with the focus. 
      My idea was to use the intervalometer to take multiple shoots to stack the photos in post (typical for AP) so i tried to use manual focus but the focus by wire is not so trustworthy in this situations...it jumped a lot between small stars (close to focus) and big ones (far from it). In the end set to manual, back button focus and that seemed to work for bright stars...the problem was that after the first pic, all the others from the set were out of focus! even if the focus was set to manual it seemed to move it a bit, which for stars and 1.2 is terrible!! does anyone run to the same issue?? or know what would be the best strategy to do AP with this lens?? I have also the roki 85 1.4 and comparing pics (the ones in focus) im really happy with the results of the 56...but focusing the 85 it way easier!! If anyone can help me would be helpful!!! sorry about my english! Cheers from Argentina!
