TESTED: Fujifilm X100V Overheating and Focusin Ring Issues

 

Some Fujifilm X100V users over at our 30,000+ members strong Fujifilm X100V facebook group are experiening overheating issues on their Fujifilm X100V camera. The affected area is the entire lower back of the camera, as you can see from the image above. You can read the post about this issue here.

Other members do not have this issue, so maybe it affects only a limited number of cameras that might require an extra step at the Fujifilm service for a fix.

In the video below, Andrew tested the X100V overheating. Here are his findings:

  • camera set at 3 seconds interval time shooting
  • Room temperature
  • after 600 shots the camera reached 108 Fahrenheit (42 Celsius)
  • temperature remains steady also after 750 shots (on same battery)
  • Heated Room Temperature (ambient temperature at 100/105 Fahrenheit = 37/40 Celsius)
  • camera quickly arrives at 100 Fahrenheit around thumb rest area
  • after 100 shots he reached 114 Fahrenheit (45 Celsius)
  • only after 600 shots he got the yellow overheating warning icon (129 F/ 53 C)
  • after that things remain steady and the camera didn’t get much hotter
  • yellow overheating icon you can still shoot, but you risk more red hot spots
  • once the overheating icon turns red, the camera is about ti shut down
  • CONCLUSION for STILLS
  • In real world photographing there is nothing to be concerned about
  • 4K Video
  • In video, after 12 minutes he got overheating warning and temperature climbs quickly
  • if you swap the batteries, you can record also over 1 hour
  • you will indeed get overheating issues if you shoot longer 4K videos

Also, in the video below Andrew reports about flaws with the focusing ring, which some report gets an unpleasant grinding when you turn it. Andrew has in general experienced this kind of sound also with other Fujinon prime lenses. He said he heard Fujifilm is quick in fixing this. The X100V he has, has not this issue.

Fujifilm Russia says Fuji X-T4 Shipping is Delayed to May and Might see Price Change

Fujifilm Russia has published a statement on their facebook page, that the shipping of Fujifilm X-T4 cameras is delayed from April to May, 2020. Also, there might be a retail price change.

Important information about FUJIFILM X-T4

The official start of sales of the FUJIFILM X-T4 camera is postponed to a later date, from April 2020 to May 2020.

Due to the sharply increased volatility in the foreign exchange market, by the time the FUJIFILM X-T4 camera starts selling, it is possible to revise the previously announced recommended retail prices.

This is definitely unfortunate for our fellow Russian Fujifilm X shooters, and we hope we won’t see the same delay or price changes in any other country.

So far, neither Fujifilm Japan, North America or Europe have announced anything similar. Most of their press releases still show “April” as shipping start.

But surely, even if the Fujifilm X-T4 starts shipping in April, it will be available only in very limited numbers.

I pre-ordered a Fujifilm X-T4 myself, and I hope I get it in time for June, when I have to photograph my friends’s wedding.

Laowa 15mm f/4.5 Shift Full Frame Lens on Fujifilm GFX – First Sample Images

Venus Optics will soon launch the Laowa 15mm f/4.5 W-Dreamer shift lens for full frame cameras.

Now we have some sample images and we can give a few more details about how this full frame lens works on the Fujifilm GFX medium format system.

According to a beta tester, the Laowa 15mm f/4.5 W-Dreamer shift lens can be used on Fujifilm GFX, but the ability to shift is limited to ± 7.

Here is his the feedback the Chinese beta tester gave so far:

Although the image field of the shift lens is much larger than the ordinary 135 format lens, if the offset is too large (± 7 or more) on the 44×33 format, it will still have a dark angle

@ 老 frog lens 15-axis image field perfectly covers the 4433 sensor, visually there is 5mm up and down, and 3mm left and right shift amount

@ 老 frog lens 15-axis transfer to Fuji GFX 50R, the picture quality looks pretty good, even if it is an ordinary ultra-wide-angle lens, the perspective is very strong. Blessed 4433 users

Fuji Guys Fujifilm X-T4 Unboxing Shows You What’s in the Box and What (sadly) Not

The Fuji Guys published their Fujifilm X-T4 unboxing video. Here is what you find in the box:

  • 2 QR codes (one for manual, one for the camera remote app)
  • Capture One Pamphlet
  • eyelets and leatherette pieces come already attached to the camera
  • nice thick and padded Fujifilm Strap
  • 5 volt 3 amp 5 watt USB-C charging block
  • new Fujifilm NP-W235 battery
  • USB-C to USB-C cable
  • USB-C to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter so you can monitor your audio while recording

They also unbox the Fujifilm X-T4 vertical grip, the VG-XT4

  • vertical battery grip

It’s a huge pity that Fujifilm will not include:

  • external battery charger
  • no more Fujifilm EF-X8 Flash
  • if you buy the vertical battery grip, you won’t get 2 additional batteries, like you get it when you buy X-H1
  • you can contemporaneously charge 3 batteries via UBS-C (1 in camera and 2 in vertical grip)

As much as I love you Fujifilm, but the omission of an external charger with X-T4 purchase and additional batteries with VG-XT4 battery grip purchase, is just a bad move. Those things should come in the box.

I did pre-order a Fujifilm X-T4 myself, and of course I added an extra battery to my order. I will also get the external charger.
