  1. 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!
  2. Hi folks, I´m new to the forum and after reading for a while I decided to write my first topic here. Unfortunately it is not exactly a positive one. However, it´s all about exchange of experiences. I´d like to know if others are affected and if there are any ideas how to get rid of the problem. Before I start I should mention that I switched to Fuji about 1.5 years ago. Bought a "cheap" X-M1 as extension to my full frame equipment (from a well known Japanese company after sticking with them for almost 20 years). Felt in love with the X-M1, bought an X-T1. Was even more happy until the very day the X-T2 arrived. Since then, this camera is a constant source of disappointment for me. Which is a pity because besides the problem described here the X-T2 is close to perfect. After switching from X-T1 to X-T2 I discovered soon that approx. 25-30% of my pictures are blurry, somehow out of focus. First of course I thought that I´m doing something wrong. New "toy", many new options. Easy to make mistakes. I tried a lot to understand what I´m doing wrong but finally wasn´t able to find a problem. However, pictures were still be out of focus quite often. So I started to shot test series with the same settings under same conditions to hopefully get reproducible results. What I got was a wild mix from pin-sharp pictures and really blurry ones. Some result as in everyday photography with my new X-T2. For the test series I used a setup that is comparable to my everyday setup (I do mostly landscapes, so this setup makes most sense for me). Here it is: X-T2 on tripod 18-55 lens used with stabilization switched off, set to 18mm ISO set to 400 or 800 (depending on light situation) aperture set to 8, exposure time set to automatic single mid-size or small AF field in the middle of the viewfinder static auto focus (AF-S) priority on focus face detection disabled series of up to 20 pictures, focused on the same object in approx. 25-50 meters distance both, camera and lens on newest firmware During my test shots I found that the DOF-scale in the viewfinder (including the AF distance indicator) was "jumping" around like crazy from one shot to the next. According to this indicator, the AF target was everything between 1.5 meters and infinity away from me. Hey, it´s a balcony on a house. These guys usually don´t move! !!! Interesting thing is that the problem only occurs if I use the hybrid AF fields in the middle of the view finder. Using the "outside" contrast AF fields the focus works perfectly, without any exceptions !!! So, with a heavy heart, I sent the X-T2 together with my 18-55 to Fuji for repair. Got it back after 4 weeks and the repair report mentioned that they have replaced the camera´s main board. So obviously there was something wrong with the camera. After testing for a few days and repeating my test series I found that nothing has changed. Some awkward behavior! I´ve got the chance to test another X-T2 at my camera dealer and it shows the same behavior, even confirmed by the dealer. So I was finally testing with another 18-55, my new 18-135, my 10-24 and some primes borrowed from friends. Same result, the only exception is the 10-24 where the problem occurs only rarely. I sent the X-T2 to Fuji again, got it back yesterday with no parts replaced but they mentioned that they have "adjusted the focus" (however this will work, if at all ). Testing again this morning and again: nothing has changed. Same unacceptable rate of out-of-focus pictures. I went to the dealer today to try another X-T2. Long story short: same behavior. Now my X-T2 is on it´s way to Fuji again, for the 3rd time. I own this camera since almost 4 months and it spent more times at Fuji and with UPS so far then in my hands. Frustrating! And since I found the same problem with 2 other X-T2 I begin to believe that this is a problem that probably affects the whole series, at least a sub-series. I have no idea. After 3rd repair attempt will fail (I´m afraid it will) I have to talk to my dealer again about taking back the X-T2 for refunding. To be able to take photos in the meantime I bought a "cheap" X-T10. This camera works like a charm with all my lenses. But I need something more robust, weather sealed with more dedicated controls. A X-T2 with well working AF would be close to my dream camera. But so far it isn´t. Does anyone have encountered similar problems with X-T2 and comparable setup and lenses? Did anyone get any help from Fuji, means a repaired or replaced X-T2? I will provide a few sample pictures within the next few hours. Cheers, Daniel P.S. sorry for the long post. But it´s hard to explain the whole story with just a few words. Sorry also for my "bumpy" English
  3. 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.
  4. This wee camera is the unluckiest I had so far. First wrong filters, then the smashed lcd panel (fixed, see earlier), a week ago I accidentally poured my coffee down my coat and drenched the camera. It emerged largely unscathed, front ring felt a bit sticky but was operational, then went to normal. One thing which suffered is the focus selector lever in the left lower corner. First all three positions kept single auto focus mode. Upon some working back and forth continuous focus returned. Manual focus, however, is not coming back. That;s where my thinking falters. The switch only redirects focusing on the front ring, not doing anything else. Those who understand the internal logic of the camera - where exactly can the fault now be?
  5. A month into use managed to break the LCD display. Interestingly, the glass is okay, but the inside is shattered. I'm trying to locate a replacement, but can't. Any ideas where to buy one?
