White bar flickering on the X-T2 EVF

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

during my first experience with my X-T2 I recognized the following (faulty) behavior today. In the moment of refocussing - after the camera released / took a photo - a white bar appears across the EVF for a very short time. I can't reproduce this behavior every time I'm refocussing. But it happens so often that it bothers me. At home I made a video by filming the EVF and the white bar / flickering. Beside the JPG I'm attaching you can take a look at the video saved as a GIF animation right here:

Did you experience the same behavior? Should I send the camera to Fujifilm?

 

Thank you.

Short update. I have sent the camera back. Got a new one. Same behavior. Already after the tenth release and the fast following refocussing the white bar flickered across the electronic viewfinder. Sobering.

you are the second member who reports a “ defect” that carries on to the second camera replaced by the shop.

 

I have no idea of what this might be BUT unless all the cameras are the same, the odds will be against this, then the  other possibility remains that since the two were different camera and you are the same person, that it is something that you do.

 

Not a criticism, but a simple deduction.

Found several users experiencing the same behavior. I'm not overstressing the camera. I'm not doing something exotic. The X-T2 should be able to refocus fast in single shot mode without a white bar flickering across the screen.

I don't get a white bar when the camera refocuses. The screen goes white and then the evf pops up again on my X-t2.. This happens for a second or so. I'm not sure what is going on? Does anyone have their evf screen go blank and then reappear. Is it suppose to be like this? Is this what they call shutter blackout?  This causes me to miss some some shots.

 

I guess it doesn't matter that much, because I don't shoot sports or moving objects, but if I did, it would really bother me.

    • YES, YES, YES!!  The direction Fuji has taken lately has been all for video and AF at the expense of ISO performance.  Forget about producing good stills, I'm not so sure they care.  The XT-2 was much better than the XT-3 and so far all I see is Fuji stepping back from image quality for the sake of AF and video. The "XH" series was supposed to mean "Hybrid" for both video and stills while the "XT" line was supposed to continue to be a camera, not a camcorder.   Now the XT-4 is simply the XH
    • I'll tell you what.  I DO NOT LIKE THE DIRECTION OF FUJI AT THE MOMENT.  If you want video, buy a camcorder, period!!
    • I was not here when this thread happened and I did not take part in it, but having read through it now I would say that although epscott held his stance in a very military manner, which some others obviously could not tolerate well, he stated his opinions to which he had his full right and he did not deserve the negative reactions that he got. He addressed Fujifilm in his post and his requirements are obviously valid for a big enough group of users and that led to Fuji creating a camera with tho
    • Does anyone know if you can output to a monitor from the xpro3 ?
