On select Fujifilm GFX100 cameras, the side shutter will no longer effectively lock and as a result, a photo may be captured accidentally. Also, tiny parts could become lose within the camera body which will also stop the camera from working correctly. 

"We anticipate that only a very small percentage of GFX100 cameras that have been shipped to date worldwide may be affected by this loosening. Still, we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused to our loyal customers," says Fujifilm. 

The Fujifilm GFX100 cameras with the following serial numbers could be affected (the serial number can be found on the backside of the LCD): 

  • 92001001 - 92001975  (excluding 92001830, 92001832, 92001833)
  • 93001001 - 93001034, 93001038, 93001039, 93001041, 93001046
  • 92A01001 - 92A01525
  • 92M01001 - 92M01027

Fujifilm recommends that anyone who owns a GFX100 with one of the serial numbers listed above should contact their local Fujifilm support centre/ Fujifilm service centre so their camera can be examined, for free, and repaired if necessary. Select cameras with the serial numbers listed above won't need to be fixed as some of the Fujifilm GFX100 cameras within this range were modified before sale but it's still worth checking with your local Fujifilm support centre/ Fujifilm service centre. 

A production line adjustment has now been made so the GFX100, going forward, will not be affected by this issue.
