    hi everyone
    Total newbie to Fuji cameras !
    I have an x100f for one day and love it although I can't seem to activate the flash ?
    It's set to single shot and mechanical shutter but it's still greyed out in the flash menu ?
    Is it something to do with the shutter volume although I can't see 'silent shutter' anywhere in the menu ?
    Any advice would be much appreciated
    Thanks in advance

    Could your flash function setting be set to off?

    A big thank u for all the replies ! I worked it out myself; u r right, it was the 'user setting' menu. 'Sound and Flash' was indeed set to 'Off' ! All good now, best wishes !

    I am also having the same issue with the flash. Sound and Flash is set to on. I have the Built-in Flash set to on. When I go to Flash Function Setting, the built in flash is showing off and is greyed out as are all the flash options. I am concerned I have a faulty camera, but hope I am just missing something. I have read the instructions.

    Likely a setting that is incompatible with flash.
    Electronic shutter, perhaps?

    Hi there, what focus mode are you using ? Try single point and single shot mode (not continuous burst ) maybe this may help ...
