Subject: [Leica] X100S Kaput

Despite all the advantages of digital cameras over film, one must remember 
that the damn things are in part computers.

My brand new X100S has gone crazy and must be sent in to Fujifilm (a 
contradiction in terms) for warranty repair. It has just gone nuts. I can?t 
step through the menus; it skips various ones. I can?t toggle between EVF 
and OVF. I can?t re-install the firmware. When I put in an SD containing the 
firmware and execute the procedure, it announces in Jinglish: ?New firmware 
not be found turn off the camera?.
