Before downloading pictures or taking pictures remotely, connect the camera to a computer and check that it functions normally.

Connecting to Computers

Connect the camera to a computer to download pictures or save RAW pictures in other formats.

  1. Turn the computer on.

  2. Adjust settings according to whether you will be copying pictures to a computer (Copying Pictures to a Computer), save RAW pictures in other formats (Converting RAW Images: FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO), or Saving and Loading Camera Settings (Backing up and Restoring Camera Settings (FUJIFILM X Acquire)).

  3. Turn the camera off.

  4. Connect a USB cable.

    USB connector (Type-C)  

    The USB cable must be no more than 1.5 m (4.9 ft.) long and be suitable for data transfer.

  5. Turn the camera on.

  6. Copy pictures to your computer.

    • Image transfer: Use applications provided with your operating system.
    • RAW conversion: Process RAW images using FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO. The power of the camera’s image processing engine is used for rapid processing.
    • Saving and loading camera settings: Use FUJIFILM X Acquire to save or load camera settings. Save your preferred settings to a file in a single operation and copy them to multiple cameras.

Turn the camera off before disconnecting the USB cable.

When connecting USB cables, be sure the connectors are fully inserted in the correct orientation. Connect the camera directly to the computer; do not use a USB hub or keyboard.

Loss of power during transfer could result in loss of data or damage to the memory card. Insert a fresh or fully-charged battery before connecting the camera.

If a memory card containing a large number of images is inserted, there may be a delay before the software starts and you may be unable to import or save images. Use a memory card reader to transfer pictures.

Make sure that the indicator lamp is off or lit green before turning the camera off.

Do not disconnect the USB cable while transfer is in progress. Failure to observe this precaution could result in loss of data or damage to the memory card.

Disconnect the camera before inserting or removing memory cards.

In some cases, it may not be possible to access pictures saved to a network server using the software in the same way as on a standalone computer.

Do not immediately remove the camera from the system or disconnect the USB cable once the message stating that copying is in progress clears from the computer display. If the number of images copied is very large, data transfer may continue after the message has ceased to be displayed.

The user bears all applicable fees charged by the phone company or Internet service provider when using services that require an Internet connection.
