Fuji X100 EVF remains dark after taking picture

  1. My Fuji X100 is a great little camera. I love it. I take it with me in lieu of my Canon 5Dc. But I have a weird observation.

    While in bright light when I take an exposure, the EVF will remain dark for a few seconds. It does not affect the image and they appear to be properly exposed, but it just concerns me since I do not understand why it does this.

    Anyone else have a FujiX100 and notice the same thing?

    Thanks
     
  2. From an XT10 user, find Screen Setup, then Display, and see what changes there does.

  3. I think I may have stumbled upon the answer. When I was moving the camera around while on, I noticed the aperture opening and closing. So I took a picture outdoors bright sunlight and quickly looked at the lens. The aperture was still closed. A few seconds later it opened.

    My suspicion is this is the way the EVF works. The lens will not revert back to a wide open status until shortly after the shot has been taken. I even tried this indoors and it did basically the same thing. So it also looks like the settings, as you mentioned, @Sanford, also has something to do with it.

    It is all good. I don't think it is an issue with the camera.

    Thanks
     
  4. Hi there was problem with early X100. Do a Google search on X100 Sticky aperture blade problem, there maybe a connection.
