I like owning my Fuji camera, but I didn’t like it so much when it took half an hour to realise I was shooting with no memory card.
The stupid device puts a short warning on the screen upon startup which disappears within 2 seconds. After that you can appear to be shooting, with an odd review screen after each shot. I was so busy shooting I didn’t press the Play button to chimp at the shots, which would have alerted me.
Apparently the next model XT-2 had a firmware update which more concretely locks the camera from shooting when the memory card is missing.
Even my 7 year old Nikon D7000 got this right. Why on earth didn’t the Fuji programmers make this a no-brainer UI feature with a permanent big warning on the screen? There’s a setting in the camera to prevent shooting without a lens, explicitly.
Not happy at Fuji at all here.
