Why Has Fujifilm Made No Effort Whatsoever to Deal with the Fujifilm GFX100S Horizontal White Stripes Problem?
The horizontal white stripes on the Fujifilm GFX100S might have little to do with color photography, though three years ago I demonstrated it with the Fujifilm GFX100 in color on certain blue skies. It remains a concern for my landscape shooting at high altitude, which I think is involved (lighting/spectral balance). At least that’s my best hypothesis, not that stripes are absent at sea level, just less common.
Mainly it has to do with being able to make a monochrome rendition for landscape images. See Don’t even Think about Using the Fujifilm GFX100S for Monochrome Landscape Images — Horizontal White Stripes Make Images Unusable.
So my question is this: why has Fujifilm made no effort to address this issue? No one at Fujifilm has contacted me, there is no official statement on the matter, etc.
Does Fujifilm sit around and ignore the blogosphere, hoping the issue will just go away? Or does some engineering manager type have a cognitive commitment nailed down that the behavior does not and cannot exist? What the hell is going on with this “professional” camera system?
