    i use the xe3 on a daily basis...lately when i turn it on and check that no dials have moved, i have also noticed that some menu settings have changed...like, which iso it's set for, or what film simulation is set...
    any one else going through this?
    am i missing a lock feature or have my electronics started to go?

    I experimented a reset of all settings.
    I don't know why and how, but it happened (obviously without never to touch setting menu for resetting)

    Touch screen being accidentally swiped? Try turning the touch screen off.
    Knobs and dials moving is a Fuji "Feature" ask any early model X100 user about their exposure compensation dial.

    touchscreen is off...
    these are menu items that are changing so a bit more than just dials moving i think.

    I have had menu options change with various Fuji cameras. The buttons get bumped as one walks around. It's annoying.

    elsewhere, someone suggested that it might be the internal back up battery that was the cause. if so i'd have to ship it to fuji for a new one.

    experienced setting reset the other day. My X-E3 probably had the battery depleted (from trying to transfer images to my phone). The on/off switch was still "On", and I just took out the battery... When I put in another fully charged battery and turned the camera off and on again, all settings were gone, back to set-up screen. Very frustrating to having to set up everything again... Don't know if it helped if I had switched it off first before removing the battery...

    This happened to me once when I first got the camera. It has hasn’t happened since. Someone mentioned the internal battery maybe hadn’t charged fully yet. I’d call Fuji and see what they have to say.
