v2.0 no lock ups
I will say if this is battery related in the grip as well, I think Fuji goofed and should have just designed a new battery just for the grip. I imagine the rumored ultimate APS-C camera Fuji is working on will do just that, or have an integrated grip and have a much large capacity battery.
On Friday, i purposefully dropped the camera into normal power mode (no boost). Same setup as before in all aspects, AF-C, zone focussing, battery grip, auto-ISO, 1/500s.
Shot a lot of short burst images of a local cycle race. Experienced freezes on about 4 or 5 occasions during the evening.
Same issue again. All short burst, 5-8 shots at a time, short pause, another 5-8 shots, short pause etc. Typically will freeze after 2-5 of these bursts. Switch off, disconnect battery grip, re-attach, switch on, carry on.
For longer bursts on their own ( I tried this as an experiment), I didn't experience any lock-ups.
I think it ould be down to non original batteries in the battery grip. I find it happens when im using copy batteries. I put in the 126a batteries and it doesnt happen.
Which I'd be happy with if I were using no-original batteries or even standard NP-W126 batteries rather than the newer NP-W126s batteries which I'm using in the camera and the grip!
That's the scenarios I get my freeze. It may not be the initial burst, or even the burst after. It's like fire off about 8 shots, pause, fire off 5, pause, fire 1 and freeze. I have had less freezes since switching to Sandisk, but I also haven't used it in as many scenarios as the Lexar yet.
Similar experiences here. Using 3 126s batteries, boost mode, fast cards. I am pretty sure I was using the Lexar 300x cards, tho I also have Sandisk 280 and 300 cards.
I have had a total of 3 freeze-incidents. So far the conditions have been: No battery grip, original Fuji w126s battery, Lexar 32GB 2000x SD-card, in single shot mode, and the freeze occurred when I reviewed a picture in the EVF.
I have now changed to my older, somewhat slower Sandisk 96mb/s cards I have not had any freezes.
Changing to your older card has nothing to do with it. I changed card types and manufacturer three times and thought I had found the solution. You are just waiting for it to freeze again. It's a mechanical problem that Fuji claims is related to the cards. I know several people that got their camera back from repair with the exact same problem. It doesn't occur for me in RAW/JPG mode, but instantly in RAW+JPG Backup to both cards in CH and CL. Shot 1750 pics to test it once and thought it was ok, just to have it freeze on me twice in the next 50 shots.
- SanDisk and Lexar cards, UHS-I and UHS-II. Never mixed up, always two identical cards
- Only W126s batteries. Freezes happening with the grip and without it.
- Cards are correctly formatted.
This is a hardware issue that Fuji has no idea how to deal with. If they would have, firmware updates would have fixed it by now. It ruins an otherwise awesome camera experience for me to the point where I switched to a X-T20 for professional work (although only one slot) because I can't rely on the X-T2.
Frozen for the first time.
AF-C, zone focussing, battery grip, auto-ISO, 1/1000, CH.
