    I had/have the same problem, it happens immediately after the shutter closes. The picture ends up recorded but the camera shuts itself down claiming low battery. New batteries, rechargable batteries, doesn't matter. This camera was used but worked great at purchase. It continued to work great for over a year before this problem surfaced.

Ive prob with battery, but it seems to coincide with when I take camera outside (its winter and cold and dull) and am using shutter speeds of over a second on iso 100. the batteries just die so quick! i end up having to go wide open on iso 1600, not great for landcapes!!!

Sounds like you might not be using the right type of battery. I had a Finepix A820 which did exactly the same thing so I went out and bought some rechargeable 2500mAh NiMH AA batteries and the problem was solved instantly.

Even special batteries designed for use in digital cameras did not work. Only the rechargeable ones did the trick.

Hope this helps.

I sent my Fuji S3 pro off to be cleaned and serviced in Miami and to repair the mini USB port which had came loose. After I received it back, all worked well, but I noticed that it eats batteries like...


Digital cameras are famously demanding on batteries, and the early Fuji ones were notorious. You must use good alkaline batteries or better, a set of high capacity NiMH rechargeables. Zinc or "long life" batteries just aren't up to the task, and they can leak and cause corrosion.

NiMH batteries with a capacity of 2700mAH are available, and these will last longer, per charge, than name brand alkalines, as well as being rechargeable. You can buy these with a charger fairly cheaply now (though they obviously cost more than disposables). You will probably want two sets, one to be on charge while you use the other.

Hi, using my new ac mains adapter, the camera does not work, shows err in the top display screen, if you try to take an exposure the camera clicks, any help would be appriciated


Is it an original Fuji part, your new AC adapter?
It sound like it's not powerfull enough. The ERR error is normally related to low batteries.

All of a sudden my fuji s3 pro isn't recognising the memory card. why is this? the card works fine in another camera.


That's the problem. It works fine in another camera so the card is optimized for that camera. To optimize it for your Fuji S3 pro, you need to format it in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics first.

Line showing in low light


When you say in low light, I take it you mean when on a high ISO setting. The S3Pro does have some limitations in this regard. One reviewer stated:

"As expected, our test images are clean and relatively noise free from ISO 100 through ISO 800. At ISO 1600, noise has a significant impact on images. To keep it in check, Fujifilm applies relatively heavy detail-smearing noise reduction to JPEGs. You can bypass this by shooting raw, but then your images will be fairly noisy. All in all, we'd rate the S3 Pro's high-ISO image quality to be middle-of-the-pack among current dSLRs."

I guess that probably answers your question!

Feel free to get back to me.

Fuji s3 does not turn on...


You have done the right thing, so far. That which I would first have suggested. Congratulations! You would be surprised how many persons ignore the need for fresh batteries.

Yes, the camera should now be reset, and if that fails, service is required to make certain of your investment.

However, the battery must first be determined to be an actual Fuji battery, and if not, this is not your fault.

Please read the following:

For your safety, we would like to remind you to only use genuine Fujifilm rechargeable battery packs for Fujifilm digital cameras.

Fuji finepix s2 pro


the lithium batteries power the flash and some of the metering. But if they drop below a certain power, the camera dies. The F33 error is probably the accidental movement of the aperture ring on the lense. If you get the error, check the aperture ring is set.
