What is the ‘Clanking’ sound from your FUJIFILM lens?

What is the ‘Clanking’ sound from your FUJIFILM lens?

This is pretty scary if you don’t know what you are dealing with! First time I heard this “clanking” sound from your FUJIFILM lens..I was concerned that I had been scammed as I had just bought the XF50-140mm F2.8 lens from another person as a used lens.

Later when I bought the XF80mm F2.8 Macro brand new it also had this sound. So it turns out it is nothing to be scared or worried about.

Low Light IBIS Performance Fujifilm X-T4

Low Light IBIS Performance Fujifilm X-T4

Finally in this latest camera by Fujifilm we now have 5-axis In Body Image Stablisation (IBIS) which means that you can get a lot more steady handheld shots in low light or night scenes. I decided to test this capability of the X-T4's IBIS as I know that I'm quite poor at shooting hand held in low light conditions. Generally I can shoot at 1/60th...

My Experience with Peak Design Lifetime Warranty
