Rude awakening: X-Pro2 power board repair 340.00++

Recommended Posts

Just got bad news that the problem with my X-Pro2 (freezing mid shoot, not waking from sleep), a body with maybe 1500 frames shot on it (and barely 2 months out of warranty), is a failed/failing main power board, which will cost 340.00+ for repair (set) and shipping/handling charges.  To say I'm astonished is understatement.  Even Apple shows customer base more regard when a device fails due to material/workmanship.  


Seems out of character for what I have come to expect from Fujifilm.

I had a Nikon D700 fail due to power board/power connector issue (so they say).  It was out of warranty as well and cost approx the same.  Had many more actuation's that yours, but actuation's aren't really related to a motherboard issue.  Of course it failed at the start of a wedding gig I was doing.

Had a Nikon D610 curtain blow out of the track and get jammed.  It was again ... out of warranty and no where near the actuation count the shutter mechanism was rated for.  That was around the same cost to repair.  Of course it failed at the start of a wedding gig as well.

Needless to say I don't own any Nikon gear anymore.

    • Thank you for checking, I have just observed the same behavior with the 35mm f/2 - X-S10 with v2.10 chooses 1/100s. I guess I will use the specific minimum shutter speed or simply force myself to use the M mode more. 
    • Can I ask, what type of audio are you looking to capture?
    • Hi All, This is my first post. Hope this hasn't been covered before. I have something I'm trying to figure out on my x100v. I typically have my camera in natural live view with "Preview Exposure" off because I don't like seeing my exposure settings reflected in the image in the EVF. However, it seems that, in this setup, the live histogram no longer adjusts based on my exposure settings... Is there any way to get the histogram to show results based on what the resulting image will be without having the EVF brighten/darken based on exposure settings? With "preview exposure" on, I find it hard to compose-- especially in certain situations when trying to protect the HL's. Thanks very much! Collin
    • Hi all,Second post here would appreciate the input. I just purchased an X-T3 and X-H1.The EVFs on paper are meant to be the same with same refresh rates when in boost mode.The sizes are also meant to be almost exactly the same at 0.50 inches X-T3 and 0.48 inches X-H1 with the same resolution.However the X-H1 EVF feels smaller (bigger black border around the edges) and not as clear. It also gives me eye strain after just a few minutes. (I have adjusted diopter). It feels like its further away if that makes sense?Has anyone else noticed a difference between the EVFs when using them side by side because on paper they are meant to be the same. Perhaps its just this particular X-H1.Thanks,
    • I must have activated the wrong setting because now when I switch to the OVF the white windows stays for a second and then completely disappears. Any idea how to get it back? Thank you all so much. 🙂
