S1000 fd Follow on from old forum-Firmware update
As a follow up to my threads in the old forum, My S1000fd is now out of warranty and Fuji still not apparently accepting there is a fault on the AUTO settings, with me getting random totally black pictures, and lots of very dark ones.
After putting a photoblog up, which I had complaints about!! someone said they'd tried to buy one and told by Fuji that there was a firmware problem with it. So I went and looked for this firmware and found some updates, well it took a couple of hours to figure out how to do it, but I did it in the end and updated the firmware. Spent the afternoon, although grey and wet, taking lots and lots of pics round my mothers garden. SUCCESS, not a dark one amongst them. trouble is this usually occurred on bright and sunny days ! HOWEVER
now, I'm getting a red crosshatch and !AF showing on almost every other picture. I know it is grey and wet, but, why isn't the Autofocus working properly now?? I can't remember ever getting this message before. Was it cus it was a very grey day and not a lot of natural light OR
Is this the firmware version that they are putting in the new cameras that is causing the problem the other forum user mentioned ???
Would be interested to see if anyone else with the S1000fd has had similar problems or if any of you experienced camera users can tell me why I am getting the !AF message. Is it something I'm doing wrong?? I tried it also on SP1 and SP2 settings and still most of the pix were out of focus. Any ideas you excellent lot out here??
Was registered on old site as 2cockatoo if anyone remembers me moaning about this camera previously.
Thanks in anticipation of some good advice
