Re: Anyone tried this on other cameras?

After all, if you shine a torch into the ports on other cameras they may have the same problem. In which case, this is not really a very big deal since without the torch noone would notice.

The issue was first noticed in real world use, then demonstrated by shining a light into the camera.

Real Example

Why do some people repeatedly insist that such real issues don't exist? The sharing of these issues and how to deal with them is one of the great benefits of participating in a gear forum. I hate wading through all the apologists posts to find useful information. If you can't stand to read about the weaknesses of a camera, then don't open threads that discuss those weaknesses. If it is not an issue for you, then move along.

Since this is not your forum I don't really think you are in a position to dictate what I can and cannot read or say, or complain when other people don't share your reaction. That's what happens in forums.

My point was how many other cameras would do the same under the same circumstances? Have you tried this with all your other cameras? My D800 has a VF blind for long exposures. Most DSLRs don't. You have to use a cheap plastic cap over the VF that most no longer supply. Does that make them all faulty?

There is an issue, so thanks for mentioning it. Now how is mentioning it 400 X going to change the fact? It's out of the bag, so Fuji will either fix it, or you will have to get creative with the tape.

It is NOT a big deal even if you want to make it one, especially as most people can't even seem to replicate it.
