  • Continuing my exploration of the viability of the FujiFilm cameras for me I found this article https://www.cinema5d.com/fujifilm-xt2-vs-sony-a7s-ii-best-mirrorless-video-camera/ .

  • Fuji X-T2 with Fuji 18-55 at 55mm ISO 200 SS125 F/5.6. The 18-55 is really an underrated lens IMO. I used a 22" beauty dish as a key light for both shots. The high key shot was backlit using a monolight with a 60" parabolic softbox. Some lenses suck when using this method e.g. flaring, ghosting, washed out milky image, etc. I just wanted to point that out because it really makes a difference depending on how you shoot.

    I have a seamless paper backdrops but for headshots I don't need the seamless backdrops. It is way faster to setup and shoot backlighting the subject as opposed to lighting the backdrop itself. Anyways here are a couple of shots with the 18-55.

    To all loyal Fujifilm X Series customers and photographers,

    It has been brought to our attention that there are a few issues with the recently released X-T2 ver 4.00 firmware update. We have therefore taken the difficult decision to remove the update from the website until we are confident that all the issues have been completely fixed.

    We deeply apologize for any inconvenience and disappointment this has caused.

    Sincerely yours,
    Toshi Iida
    General Manager
    Optical Device and Electronic Imaging Products Division
    Fujifilm Corporation, Tokyo, JAPAN

    Details of the Problem

    We have discovered malfunctions in the firmware ver.4.00 released on May 8 2018. They are as follows:

    1. When RAW files, which were taken by X-T2 (before firmware ver.4.00), are converted in camera (ver.4.00) or by "FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO", they are not converted properly.
    2. When pressing the shutter button halfway under certain conditions, the live view can flicker.
    3. In rare cases, a hang-up can occur.

    We have identified the cause and plan to release the upgraded firmware to address the malfunctions as soon as we can.

    In the meantime, for customers who have upgraded the firmware to ver.4.00, the firmware ver.4.01*, whose functions are same as ver.3.00, have been posted on our website. Please download it and update your camera.

    • *Ver.4.01 doesn't include the additional functions of ver.4.00.

    Again, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused.

    Note

    We announced the firmware update for GFX 50S, X-H1 and X-Pro2, which was planned in May 2018, on the Global website on 12 Apr 2018. However, it will be postponed because we need more time to check the firmware for the three models. For detail, we will inform you later.

  • Firmware v4.10 released

    • The functions of "Select Folder" and "Create Folder", which was planned to be included in Ver.4.10 will be incorporated in Ver.4.20 to be released in July 2018.
    • Upgrading firmware from Ver.4.00 to Ver.4.10 will remove the functions of "Select Folder" and "Create Folder".
