White bar flickering on the X-T2 EVF

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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.

    • Any update on this issue? My xpro3 was purchased earlier this year, still under warranty. But I cannot turn it on at all. After a shoot last Saturday, I left it on its shelf and picked it up to shoot this morning: totally unresponsive. Tried 4 different Fuji batteries all charged. No luck. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you. 
    • The reply I received from Fuji back a while ago   “Thank you for your patience regarding this issue.     After speaking to our camera service engineers, they told me there is no coating on the new cameras and while the new LCD panels have a similar colour gamut, they are no longer calibrated by the factory in the same way that they used to be.   They believe this changed around the end of 2019 but they weren't sure.  Nothing that should make a black and white image look sepia though, the LCD will be slightly warmer out of the box.   In the same way that most TV screens and monitors are not colour calibrated from the factory, the LCD screens on our cameras are not either and instead have the option to be adjusted manually by the end user to their preference.   I appreciate this is probably not what you are looking for, but this is how the new generation of cameras are made” I tested a GFX50s I store that was traded in. No issues with the lcd - Seems the more money you spend the lcd is then properly calibrated. The lower end cameras under 1K they ain’t.    very sad to see
    • I'm trying to understand the unmarked aperture ring on the K&F Concept lens adapter. I recently purchased the K&F Concept Minolta AF (Sony A) to Fuji X lens adapter to use with my old Minolta AF lenses; specifically the Minolta AF 50mm f1.7-f22. With the adapter installed (Fujifilm X-E2S), the camera does not show the aperture selected; understandably as this is a "dumb" adapter. The combination works very well together and I have no complaints. The adapter has a clicked aperture ring that allows for 9 stops from fully open to fully closed. Would the 9 stops equate to f1.7, f2, f2.8, f4, f5.6, f8, f11, f16, f22 for the Minolta AF 50mm f1.7-f22 lens?   Many Thanks!
