Fujifilm X-T1 Owners Can Now Send in Their Light Leaking Cameras for Official Repairs

Last week, Fujifilm Japan began rolling out a free repair service to X-T1 mirrorless cameras affected by the light leak issue. Now Fuji Rumors spotted a new support page on Fujifilm USA’s website that’s also extending the same fix here in the states. The support page states that any U.S. serial numbers 41A05201 or higher are safe, however, anything with a lower serial number may have light leak issues.

Users unsure if they own a defective camera should set their cameras to ISO12800 and fire a 30-second exposure with the lens cap on. While the shutter is open, take a flashlight and point it around where the camera and lens meet as well as through the X-T1’s open ports. If the exposure resolves an image with any visible streaks of light users should call the Fujifilm Repair Center at (800) 659-3854 (x3461).
