X-T1 originally went in to resolve dust spots on the sensor that would not clean off. They replaced the sensor or the glass in front of it, and it came back.
The sensor was clean. But the eye sensor, the switch that dropped the back panel LCD and turned on the viewfinder when you bring the camera up to your eye, completely failed. Back to Fuji…
Yesterday the X-T1 came back again – and the eye sensor works, but random pixels misfire in all images resulting in white spots on the photographs. Amazing. On the other hand the sensor is still clean…
The repair ticket has notes saying they reset the eye sensor – somewhere along the line either new pixels starting misbehaving or the reset wiped out the dead-pixel map (all sensors have misfiring pixels – the manufacturers map them out, making them disappear, up to a failed tolerance).
All of this has been immediately available information to anyone who actually tested the camera – so obviously, checking a camera after repair to make certain it is working and resolved is simply not happening at the moment, at all.
When these cameras work they are outstanding – but I’ve never had to send a Canon camera in for repair. They simply work. These do not, and they don’t because of manufacturing issues right out of the box (three sensors in these cameras so far that are flawed, plus another four cameras I’ve rejected and returned because of the same lack of quality control) and then because Fuji can’t seem to simply fix the goddamn cameras.
