Fujifilm Professional Services Program

Relating to yesterday’s post mention of Sony Pro Services, reader Dr S reminded me that Fujifilm Professional Services is also available (since 2017).

Fujifilm Professional Services Program

Fujifilm Professional Services Program

The standout feature with the Fujifilm Professional Services Program is a 1-year warranty extension.

Fujifilm Professional Services Program at $399 (really $434 here in California) is less of a value than Sony at $100, given that the camera and lens pricing is little different for pro gear, indeed some Sony gear is more costly. Except for that extended warranty.

In 6 years (2017 through today), I’ve had no circumstances with Fujifilm gear that would have made it important, so I’ve saved $2400 so far by not signing up.

* Fujifilm’s program has sales tax applied, Sony’s does not. So it is really ~$434 vs $100. Some aspect of Fujifilm’s offering must make the whole thing taxable, a poor program design IMO.


Fujifilm Professional Services Program Terms and conditions

  • 1-year extended warranty on any new, qualifying X Series and GFX System gear purchased and registered in a qualifying membership year
  • Two (2) free “Check and Clean” services on eligible gear
  • Fifty Percent (50%) off any additional Check and Clean services during the qualifying membership year
  • Thirty Percent (30%) off expedited repairs
  • Two (2) business day turn around on all services
  • Exclusive access to loaner equipment.


The first two are unreasonable IMO.

For example, 2 days after subscribing to FPS, your camera is stolen and you do not replace it—no refund. Similarly, Apple AppleCare allows transfer with the computer—why not with camera gear?

  • You will not under any circumstance be entitled to receive any refund of the paid participation / membership fee from Fujifilm.
  • Non-transferable.
  • You will bear all risk of loss or damage to the Loaned Equipment while in your possession and until its return to Fujifilm.
  • $399/year
  • Warranty extension is “outsourced to a 3rd party”. Not much of a confidence builder.
  • Alaska and Hawaii residents are excluded. Is this just to save shipping costs?

That Sony thing about Sony Protect is an interesting potential mess.

BTW, as I said earlier, I got the GFX100 II early on when stock was sparse. After I got the cam I discovered a problem. The dealer could not get any more stock for awhile so I bravely sent mine into Fujifilm.

To my delight they exchanged the $7500 body for another brand new one and paid all the shipping.....taking only one week! Had I not been an FPS member, who knows how long the check and repair time would have taken!
