  1. I finally replaced my first batch of generic 'Power2000' X100 batteries with this set from Wasabi Power: https://www.amazon.com/Wasabi-Power-Battery-Charger-Fujifilm/dp/B005CRHM5C/. They have worked flawlessly so far, 6 months in. The spare charger works great with the original Fujifilm battery as well, and it's more compact. I use them in my X100T.

    X-T100 has arrived

    It really looks to be a nice value in a form factor that many people will be familiar with. I am impressed (and happy) that Fujifilm continues to scale their consumer camera bodies down smaller, if only to keep pace (or catch up) with their competition. In the era of smartphones as cameras, carrying a dedicated camera is a big ask for many people, the small size and wide feature set should appeal to a lot of people. The new price point can bring a lot of photographers into the X series family too, who might otherwise choose a different system.
  3. That's a great outcome, keep us posted on how it turns out! I can't help but wonder, did you shoot any photos with the critter in there? Did it come through or just disappear?

    XF35mmF2 Light Loss

    Yeah, if it's already sticking now, that's not a good sign for its longevity. I imagine it's still under warranty? Best to send it in for service if it happens again, or preemptively if you're able to be without it for a week or two.

    XF35mmF2 Light Loss

    @JMA That definitely sounds like your lens could be defective, possibly a stuck aperture blade. You should be able to see your aperture blades move, open, and close if you look into the front of the lens and click through the different apertures with the aperture ring. You may need to half-press the shutter to move the aperture blades, depending on your camera and settings. You should notice right away if something is amiss with the blades.

    Claret Cup Cactus

    Nice fine detail on this one, the reds come through nice too.
  7. I wonder if resetting it back to factory defaults might be worth a try? You will lose your settings, but perhaps it could solve it. You can find the reset option in the menu.
  8. If I recall the X20 turns on via twisting the lens barrel? Have you tried turning it on while holding down the DISP/Back button, as if you were initiating a firmware update. If the camera display not power on, unfortunately it will have to get sent in for repair. Is it possible the rear LCD stopped working? Is there any indicator inside the X20's OVF when it is 'on'?

    X100F Sticky Aperture Blade

    This is the first I've heard of it happening on an X100F. That's unfortunate @David Eagle, but I don't think it's commonplace, at least. Let us know how the repair goes.
  10. You're going to love it @George S.! Be sure to double check that the firmware is up to date on both cameras, the latest firmware introduced way way way faster auto focus, particularly on the original X100.
  11. Great tip @LynnwoodRick, thanks for sharing!
  12. Hi @Kons, welcome to the community! That sounds essentially the same as my X100T and original X100. The lens design and motor really hasn't changed over the years, even though the rest of the camera has. It does have a little whine to it during focusing.
  13. Welcome to the community @DaveC! You could try a firmware update if it's not yet on the latest version, that is essentially a full reset on the X100S. The power draw on your batteries is concerning though, it's possible there is an internal fault of some sort with the camera's electronics. The X100S has a higher performance mode in the power settings of the menu, but it wouldn't drain a battery in 10 or 15 minutes.
  14. Thanks for sharing @Jackthestreet, great solution!

    I believe you press and hold the DISP/BACK button to set function buttons on the X-T1. It's possible to set the function buttons through the main menu as well.
