Sooo, my X100T took a bath in a river. I let it dry out for a few days, and amazingly it works. However it’s got a couple problems.
First there’s a few spots showing up on some photos. It seems like shooting landscapes with a smaller aperture causes the spot to show up. The Lens was fogged up for awhile but finally cleared up. I’m guessing this might be something from the dried condensation on a lens element.
Second, there is sometimes a darker area showing up on some photos in lower light. It’s in the upper left center of the photo. The two problems might be related. I don’t know for sure. It’s less noticeable in bright light and almost nonexistent in macro
I sent it in to the Fujifilm repair center and the cost of repair is the price of a used replacement: $750. I don’t have the money so am contemplating disassembly and cleaning.
I figure I don’t have anything to lose by trying to clean it. I looked online and found a tutorial with steps to take it apart. It looks straightforward (but not easy). I’d like to clean the sensor, low-pass filter, and the lens elements if possible.
What would you recommend for cleaning each piece? I’m not sure what they’re made of and what will work on each. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks!
I've had my X100T for about 15 months now and I love it. However, today the on/off switch decided to stop working. The battery is fully charged and the camera did switch on once after I discovered the problem but I have not been able to switch on again since. Has anyone else had any similar problems, or any ideas on how to remedy this?
And to complicate matters I'm in Brazil at the moment where Fuji cameras are not common at all - and all electronic equipment is extremely expensive.
A nice misty morning walk on the beach. Wishing I was there right now.
