I recently upgraded from the Fuji XT-1 to the XT-3. I took it out on a busy shoot this past weekend and had a major problem that I am praying is user error, although I never had this issue with the XT-1.
I use back button focus (AF-L button) and then the shutter to take the photo. About 10-15% of the time, when I go from focus to shutter, the shutter doesn’t fire. I press it and nothing happens. I release it and press again. Sometimes nothing happens again. Sometimes it works.
This is obviously not scaleable. I missed important shots this weekend as a result. Did I get a lemon? Or can anyone think of something that could be causing it that is fixable on my end? Google isn’t returning much along these lines so I fear it is a camera issue. Thanks in advance for any insight!
EDIT: I should note that it doesn’t matter whether focus is locked or not for this to happen. Even if I’ve successfully focused (box turns green), the shutter might not work.
