If this works anything like the auto business then I'd guess that Fuji will replace sensors in cameras of those who complain. They will have to deny any inherent problem at the risk of replacing sensors in every camera sold. They would deny it being a warranty repair for the same reason, but insist that it is simply a matter of customer service for those who think they have an issue.

Hi badpickev,

Re; “ORBS” in my Fujifilm X-S1,
I have this camera since May, and yes I can get orbs if I take images against the light, but in all my normal photographical situations I had no problems at all. Certainly nothing I would do to get the sensor changed.
In fact I have heard a lot of stories from people who after changing censors are now less pleased with the performance of their camera.
I personally highly recommend the X-S1 for anyone wanting a bridge camera which is not all auto. The X-S1 has in my opinion the best features of any bridge camera on the market.
* Manual zoom lens with a great range from a wide 24 to 624mm
* High resolution EV with 1 440 000 pixels
* Good flip-out LCD making it easy to take macro shots etc.
* Beautiful feel and look

Cheers
