Some photographers are reporting their cameras are currently having compatibility issues with Windows 10.

When a new operating system is released, there's usually a few bugs and compatibility issues that need ironing out and the new version of Windows doesn't seem to be bucking the trend with some photographers reporting camera compatibility issues.

According to comments by our members in the forum, the main cameras proving problematic seem to be the Fujifilm X series and some Nikon cameras, including the D7000. Issues include the camera being recognised but images not showing and memory cards not being read correctly, even by card readers, and the OS saying the card needs to be formatted. Over on Reddit, some photographers are reporting they can view JPEGs but not RAW files. 

When tested, we couldn't see the files on the memory card inserted in a Fujifilm X-E2 when connected directly to a PC but the files are visible in the PC's file explorer when a memory card is inserted directly into a memory card reader which is connected to the PC.

Solutions? 

For those of you who are experiencing issues and are looking for a solution to the problem, there doesn't seem to be one as of yet but the Microsoft team has said they are aware of the problems and they are 'rapidly working on a fix'. 

Fujifilm also published a statement in regards to camera compatibility with Windows 10 in which they said they will be performing checks on the Fujifilm X series cameras and FinePix series cameras which were launched in 2010 or later. Once complete, they will make another announcement. 

As well as cameras, Fujifilm is checking 5 applications: MyFinePix Studio installer, RAW File Converter EX 2.0 powered by Silkypix installer, PC AutoSave installer, Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5 for Windows installer and Tethered Capture Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom installer.

Nikon also released a Windows 10 compatibility announcement in regards to the following applications: Capture NX-D, ViewNX-i (including ViewNX-Movie Editor), Picture Control Utility 2, Camera Control Pro 2, Nikon Message Center 2, Wireless Transmitter Utility (originally named WT-4 Setup Utility), NEF codec, NRW codec, ViewNX 2, Capture NX 2, Short Movie Creator, IPTC Preset Manager and GP-N100 Utility. Nikon say they will examine Windows 10 compatibility for these pieces of software and publish their findings once complete. Until then, they can't guarantee the compatibility of these applications with Windows 10. 

If you're experiencing compatibility issues with your printer and Windows 10, head over to the Microsoft Community pages where you'll find more details on printer drivers and connection issues. 

There's also a Windows 10 Upgrade discussion taking place over in ePHOTOzine's forum.
