Fuji support response time in the UK

4 posts in this topic

Hi folks,

I recently acquired a second hand X-T1, it's in good overall shape but the rubber grips have stretched and are peeling. I've tried emailing Fuji's UK support email address to inquire about purchasing replacement grips about five days ago and thus far not heard anything back (not even an automated reply). Does anyone else have any experience of dealing with Fuji's UK support people, are they always this slow? Am I better off phoning them? I've seen folks in other countries have managed to get the parts and do the repair themselves, which is what I'd rather do than pay someone else to do it.

Phone them. Fuji UK (even just after Xmas and new year and in the midst of train/tube strikes) are generally reckoned to give the best service.

BTW. You can get new clothes for your XT1 on ebay/amazon etc.

I always found them responsive to a call to customer service.

      This is an all-mechanical medium format Fuji rangefinder. I've had it for a bit, and it's a great camera—easy to use, with a clear  and bright viewfinder and a rangefinder patch with plenty of contrast. I'm trying to pare down my camera collection, however, and I don't use this enough to justify its presence. 
      Packaging and shipping through FedEx for this camera will run about $30, and I can ship anywhere in the United States. The photo is a stock image, but the camera itself is in excellent condition, with a minor blemish from use. Counter is at 8, or 80 shutter releases.

      Hello,
      I am selling my Fujifilm 16-55mm f/2.8 lens, and it is in beautiful condition. The glass is flawless, and cosmetically the lens looks very much like new with little to no signs of use as you can see in my photos. All functions are working properly. There are some minor rub marks on the plastic lens hood and on the front lens cap. This is a USA version lens. I do not have the box, but the lens will include the original lens hood and lens caps, and the instruction booklets and paperwork. I really like everything about this lens except for its size and weight, so I am going back to a smaller lens. Asking $885 which includes fast and free shipping in the USA by USPS priority or FedEx ground. Paypal, money order, or cashier check are fine for payment. I am new to this site, but have 100% positive feedback on another Fuji forum under the same username, as well as on other well known sites. I am located in SE Wisconsin, USA. Please let me know if I can help with any questions.
      ~Thank you and Happy Holidays

      If you or any of your friends are Fuji XT2 users please share this information as I have solved the big problem you are having with continuous AF and metering in this mode.
      So your shooting in continuous AF with continuous burst mode and your XT2 is only getting the 1st few shots exposed correctly and the rest are under or over exposed.
      This is what's happening: 
      You press down the shutter to start tracking AF and the camera starts to track the subject. But as soon as you full press the shutter button to take the 1st shot the camera enters exposure lock.
      This means that the moment the 1st picture is taken the exposure is locked and will be throughout entire the subject tacking.
      So every shot taken will be at the same shutter speed and lens F stop. So all is well if the lighting doesn't change during that burst mode. But if the subject moves into lighting that is different from that of the 1st frame your subject will be over or under exposed.
      Fuji hasn't managed to provide any answers to XT2 user because I believe they haven't noticed the problem yet with the new 1.10 firmware update. 
      The answer to this problem isn't easily noticed within the menus system of the XT2 as it's in a place that doesn't make any sense.
      So here you go please follow these instructions.
      Go to
      1-Menu
      2- Settings
      3-Button/Dial setting 
      Then go down to shutter AE and turn it off it's on by default.
      This will now enable metering while the camera is in continuous AF mode.
      I can't understand why it's here in this menu and it's not even explained in any way by Fuji or what this does to continuous AF tracking mode.
      But within here lies another bug that Fuji needs to fix in a firmware update ASAP. 
      When AE lock is switched to off the camera will no longer display the shutter speed in the viewfinder or rear screen.
      The shutter speed will only show in Manual mode or in Shutter priority mode for some reason.
      You need to know the shutter speed for obvious reasons but you can't see them ahhh Fuji.
      You can see the shutter speed if you press the AE lock button on the back of the camera but this will lock the exposure so don't forget to press it again to unlock it again.
      The AE button still functions as it should now but without locking exposure in tracking mode.
      Hope this help you XT2 users out there who haven't worked this one out yet and that includes Fujifilm.
      So share this with everyone who you think needs this and Fuji fix this ASAP with a new firmware.
