Re: FUJI X-T1 LIGHT LEAK
In reply to adfhg, 5 months ago

This has nothing to do with weather sealing.  The light leak only occurs if the weather sealed port door is already open.

A problem?  Yes, but easily overcome by covering the two ports at fault with tape for daylight long-exposures, and taking care not to shine a flashlight in the holes during night shooting with a wired shutter release.

Should be an easy fix for Fuji.  Sadly, the first black-mark engineering flaw on what is proving to be a fine camera.

I've had an X-T1 for over a week now.  Completely enamored with the fuji glass, and the image quality and handling of the X-T1.  I don't own a wired shutter release yet, and don't plan to any time soon since the wifi app is great and will meet my needs (no BULB, and limited to 30 second exposures via the app, which is fine for my shooting, but obviously not for everyone).
