To our valued customers

Thank you very much for purchasing and using our products.

When the X100V is used in a continuous manner (such as with continuous video shooting) or when used in a high temperature environment or direct sun light, a user may feel the grip become noticeably hot, due to heat generation within the camera’s electric circuit board and battery. It is important to note that this heat will not generally affect the camera’s performance until the camera shuts off as described below. However, the emulating heat may cause skin irritation and may ultimately be uncomfortable for the user.

In X100V with firmware version 1.10, When the camera’s temperature increases in this manner, a yellow warning icon first appears on the LCD screen. If the temperature increases further the red warning icon will appear and shortly thereafter, the camera will turn off automatically.

In cases where the X100V shuts down automatically, we would recommend that you permit the camera to cool down before further use.
In situations where the use environment is particularly hot or where the user has blood circulation or sensitive skin issues, we would recommend use of a tripod or a gimbal for periods of continuous shooting. As noted above, the camera will shut off in the event of a significant temperature increase.

The new menu “AUTO POWER OFF TEMP.” in “POWER MANAGEMENT” menu is added in the upgrade firmware version 1.10. When the X100V is used hand-held in a continuous manner (such as with continuous video shooting), we would recommend use of the new menu.

You can rest assured that Fujifilm is absolutely committed to quality and service excellence, with respect to the X100V, and with respect to all other FUJIFILM products.
