The catalog/brochure for the X-E1 says, on the specs page, that the X-E1 has face detection. But there's no face detection in any of the menus as far as I can determine, and the instruction book makes no mention of face detection. Is the catalog/brochure wrong, or where would I find it in the menu?

i have a fujifilm jx60 that i purchased a few months ago. it worked without issue for the first few months. i tried to use it at my daughters choral performance only to be disapointed that the camera had nothing being displayed on the screen the menus appeared but no image from the lens and no images when i pressed the review button. so not only is it incapable of taking pictures the pictures i have taken cannotbe viewed. i called the "customer service" line and found it to be a joke. after discribing my issue the person said "oh well its malfunctioning" surely a no **** sherlock moment. yes i am aware it's malfunctioning. i expected to run through some troubleshooting ideas but nope. instead he just began reading off a address to send it to at my own expense. i am hoping that someone has a better understanding of what the issue may be. i am quite technically savy with most things and have checked for firmware updates or driver updates, software patches but according to the fuji website my camera model doesn't exist. so please any help is appreciated. thanks

  Due to excellent feedback and popular demand, but having sold out all of my previous spare HS10 Remote Cable Release Brackets as shown below, I have now had a further batch produced. They come complete with a 700mm release cable as shown and are made from satin finished Stainless Steel. Unfortunately I can only offer them to UK members, so if anyone is interested please use my contact button and leave your email address and I will get back to you.

So I got my HS50 a few months ago, very excited, still figuring it out (and waiting for good weather), but one of the things I really really want to do is long-exposure shots. But I just cannot figure out how to make it happen with my camera. I've read every possibly related entry in the manual, .pdf and paper copy alike, and I've even cruised around on here hoping something will trigger the aha! I need. But nothing. I know I have to be in manual mode, and have ISO on 100, but the lowest I seem able to get it is 200; 100's greyed out.  So basically what I'm saying is, I need a very thorough, step-by-step explanation of how to do this.

Hello A friend has given me a FinePix XP-30 that he no longer uses. I bought a new NP-45A battery for it and charged it. When I turn the camera on the LCD screen lights up with the word "USB" and the USB symbol over a white background. None of the buttons do anything and I can't see any image. I've tried inserting an SD card (no difference), but I think the screen should show an image even without a card. Can anyone suggest what might be happening? Many thanks.

Got my X-T1 yesterday and have had no luck with the wireless features.  I can get the remote control to work on my Nexus 5 Android, and on one occasion managed to transfer a picture, but it's flaky and unreliable; first, often fails to connect, "Browse Camera" just sits there and doesn't display pictures and "Receive" says "Picture can’t be received" (maybe because it's raw?). Also, I can't get the PCAutoSave to connect at all to my Macintosh... it connects OK to the WiFi network that the computer’s on, but then it says it can’t find the computer. Does anyone have success stories, or tips & tricks on how to get this to work?  I'm technically competent, in the software biz.
