It is official. I got it from the horse’s mouth (so to speak). At 9:14 am this morning I called up Fujifilm U.S.A., at 1-800-800-3854, to get the definitive answer.
It wasn’t as easy as I thought. I was placed on hold twice and ended up speaking with 3 people before I finally got the answer.
New Fuji X-series cameras will be in a SEALED ‘plastic’ bag as you can see above.
The box will NOT be sealed.
I had to go to a lot of trouble to get to the bottom of it. Appears that there may be quite a few of YOU who got new Fujis that were NOT in a sealed bag.
I started a DPReview “Fujifilm” Forum post to try and get to the bottom of this.
As you can see I got quite a few contradictory responses. Feel bad for those that got UNSEALED cameras (from major online retailers).
I Googled. Others have been here BUT nobody appears to have tried to NAIL IT DOWN. I did.
You have the definitive answer.
I talked to Amazon. I talked to “Bromfield Camera” in Boston. They said all the new Fujis they sell are sealed.
I ordered a Fuji from Amazon — since they are an authorized dealer. That doesn’t mean that I might NOT get a used Fuji in an unsealed bag! I will find out.
