X100F - Major shutter lag. Please help!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a problem with my X100F. It can sometimes take several seconds before it takes the shot after I have pressed the shutter half way and found the focus. Even though I take a shot of the same subject (no change of camera position) the shutter lag varies from half a second to 3-4 seconds. Very frustrating..... Strangely enough, there's no lag when I press the shutter all the way in one operation (when I don't need to recompose). So, the lag only happens when I have half press the shutter and have found the focus pont. The focus stays green.

I don't understand why this is happening. Is it a software issue or a bug with the camera? I hope someone has got the answer and can share it here with me. It is SO frustrating!!

Thank you.

Best wishes,
Bjarte

I don't have an answer for you but it is possible you have hit a setting intentionally or unintentionally with consequences you didn't or couldn't anticipate.  When all else fails and I don't know what's happening, its time for a camera reset.  You might try this out and see if your problem is resolved.

Hello Bjarte,

I happen to have the same problem with my x100f.

Have you managed to fix it ?

Hard to say with out knowing your settings. But have a look at your release/focus priority settings. If it’s set to focus priority the. The camera will wait to be in focus before taking the photo. In release priority the camera will take the photo even if it’s a little or a lot out of focus.

      Hi all, I recently upgraded my X100S to the X100F but then found it's RAW files aren't compatible with my Lightroom 5... So i installed the free Capture One (20.0.4) Express for Fujifilm last night but when i try to import to it, it doesn't recognize RAW or Jpeg...it says there's nothing to import when they're clearly there in the folder i'm pointing to.  I checked and it's definitely the Fujifilm version of Capture Express.  The one thing i did notice is the when i open Capture up it says near the top 'Setting up hardware acceleration' and takes hours to get to 100%...not that i've got that far as after 45 minutes it gets to 52% done and just hangs.... i'm running Capture on a Dell Inspiron 5000 series with Windows 10.  Any help/advice would be most appreciated.  Thanks.

      Hello all,
      I am unable to connect my X100F to my Android phone. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app many times. I reset the connection settings on camera. Still I am unable to connect.  Can anyone help please.

      Hey everyone,
      I recently sold my Canon 5D Mark iii as I wanted something smaller to take everywhere I go and I have grown to love Fuji! I am between the brand new XT3, X100F, and the XE3. I want to have the camera everywhere I go and I do a lot of street photography. I was hoping I could hear some opinions on which camera would suit me best.
      Thanks,
      Andy

      I have my X100F and I want to directly import the image (RAF format) using 
      CaptureOne12 Express Fuji directly from the camera using USB cable. I mean, without having to take out the SD card from the camera. 
      Currently only MacOSX Photo app that can directly detect the camera,
      but it cannot detect RAW format.
      Is that possible? If so what's the way to do it?

      Hi All,
      Does the digital teleconverter on the X100F work with the OVF engaged (or only with the EVF active?) AND does it change the view to show 50mm and 70mm?
      Thanks,
      Darren

    • Thanks for the info! Really appreciate it. So I had a little extra money to spend and decided to order the X-t4, hopefully will be here tomorrow. I was a little unsure if $2199 CAD pricetag was justified since I already own a capable video machine in the x-t30 but based off the way you're describing the footage your getting from handheld b-roll, I'm feeling more excited about it now. I'm also considering purchasing the 16mm f1.4, do you have that lens? If so how do you like it for vide
    • Hi Jim, I myself had the X-E2 and then, X-E2S.  II have a X-E3 for about 6 months now. It is a wonderful deal. What can I say : The joystick is not perfect when you dive too much in in the menus. Sometimes I hit and miss. I use the Jpg to Raw in camera conversion menu, I cannot go as fast as with the d-pad. Nevertheless, the joystick works very well for choosing focus. I have no big issues with swipes, it works well for me. May i add that the X-E3 is a totally different camera tha
    • I use Fuji XT2 its been with me for 2 years very good camera  
    • I have an X100V with the same problem, done everything that has been said and still I have not been able to see the gridlines.
    • What you are probably thinking of is animal eye detection. Fuji has not announced anything. I do not see why Fuji could not add it.
