Goodbye Fuji X-T2: Why I FINALLY had to let it go at LivingVertical Youtube

The Good, The Bad and The Freedom to Say it All

I love the Fuji system.

And yes, sometimes I just can’t contain my enthusiasm and excitement for the Fuji X and G systems, which brings me to write long emotional articles when a camera gets discontinued or lose myself in a frenzy of happiness for a rumor, when I could have said everything with 1 headline and saved a lot of my spare time.

That’s who I am… can’t change it… deal with it ;)

However, this is FujiRumors… and I know that this blog is a big source for all things Fuji for many of you guys.

That’s why my number 1 priority will always be to deliver honest, good, fair, fast and accurate service to you… even if it means that sometimes we have to talk “bad” about Fujifilm.

So here on FujiRumors we are are free to…

  • write about my main 2 complaints on the Fujifilm X-T1 – read here
  • launch polls investigating why people don’t buy Fujifilm (highlighting the weaknesses of the system) – read here
  • We love Kaizen, but recently called the Wireless Tethering feature a Joke – read here
  • When we think Fujifilm is losing the path (and its “soul”), we report (and comment) about it – read here
  • When reviewers give negative feedback about an important key feature of a new camera (such as the hybrid viewfinder on X100T), we will report about it – read here
  • FujiRumors is regulary the first place that reports about issues and bugs, such as the mushy buttons on the first batch of X-T1’s and more

I’ll just quickly add, that I can do this only because I have absolutely 0% contacts with (and zero favours/money/support from) Fujifilm, which gives me an immense freedom to write whatever I want.

You guys, the FR-readers, are my only boss… and all I want to do is to deliver you the best content and rumors possible.

The Roundup

The Fujifilm X-System is not for everybody. Depending on what your needs are, you may be more or less satisfied with it. Some people love the X-system so much, that they can live with minor issues (maybe waiting for a Kaizen Firmware to fix it), some others just have to return their Fuji camera, just like LivingVertical did with his X-T2 (video above) or alastairarthur did with his X-Pro2 (link below).

But there are also many very happy Fuji users out there, who keep up producing great work with their Fuji gear (such as Kevin Mullins’ recent wedding Photographs)… and I’m happy to share them in this roundup, too.

This Simple “Trick” Will Show You When Your Fujifilm Camera Has Been Made

Share

Ok guys, if you ever wanted to know when your Fujifilm camera has been manufactured, here is a simple way to find it out :)

All you have to do is to check out the first two figures of your serial number.

So, as you can see above, my good old (and now discontinued) Fujifilm X-T1 serial number starts with “42“.

This means that my Fujifilm X-T1 has been made in 2014, in quarter 2.

To check if this is correct, I opened a random image of mine (SOOC or RAW) with the Graphic Converter EXIF tool. Here is what it shows me: 2014:06:18… or 18th of June, 2014. So indeed, quartal 2 of 2014.

So if your serial number starts with, let’s say, 71, it means your camera has been manufactured in 2017, quarter 1.

UPDATE: Thanks to the FR-community, we have solved the riddle. As from Fuji’s page in Russian here (google translated)

1st digit = Year:
1 = 2011, 2 = 2012, …

2st digit/letter = Quarter:
I quarter = 1, 5, A, S, E, J, N
II quarter = 2, 6, B, T, F, K, P
III quarter = 3, 7, C, U, G, L, Q
IV quarter = 4, 8, D, W, H, M, R

Examples of determining the year and quarter of production:

Serial number 1Txxxxxx – the first position of the number – the number “1” means 2011, the second position of the number – “T” – means the 2nd quarter, accordingly the product was produced from April to June 2011;

Serial number 03xxxxxx – the first position of the number – the number “0” means 2010, the second position of the number – “3” – means the 3rd quarter, accordingly the product was produced from July to September 2010.

The production date itself is taken as the last day of the production quarter. Ie, if the camera is produced in the third quarter, the warranty period will be counted from September 30.

And don’t forget to join our facebook groups:

have a GREAT day,

P.S.: and since some of you might ask about it in the comments… the wooden grip on my X-T1 is made by JBcamera Designs. Check it out on AmazonUS here and at JBcameradesigns.

GFX Owners Workshop in Swedish Lapland

Yes, it’s happening… we are about to reach the 15,000 Fujifilm GFX facebook members, a group full of talented photographers, Fujifilm X-photographers, Fujifilm managers, and even stars like musician and artist Seal Samuel (a long time Leica shooter, who now bought the Fujifilm GFX).

Mat Richardson is one of the talented group members, a professional photographer for over 20 years, and of course a GFX shooter now. He also has a long experience with carrying out workshops in the deep North of Europe.

Well, Mat decided to run a workshop in the Swedish Lapland, dedicated to Fujifilm GFX owners.

And those of you, who are both,

  1. part of the Fujifilm GFX facebook group
  2. owners of a Fujifilm GFX

… will also get a significant €400 discount compared to the normal workshop rate.

Sounds good? Then check out the main details below and for any question contact mjr@matrichardson.com and check out Mat’s workshop page here.

Details

Swedish Lapland is an amazing location, wild landscapes, incredible rivers and waterfalls, 24hr daylight in the summer and extreme temperatures in the winter, plus lots of snow and ice and even Northern Lights!

We run workshops here because this is where we live and work and we offer the opportunity for workshop participants to experience everything the area has to offer.

We do things a little differently here, as professional commercial photographers, we have a fully equipped studio and print setup on site, this gives us a unique environment for people to learn about post processing and printing after a day’s shoot as well as experience portrait and product photography in a working studio setup with a large strobe lighting kit.

On top of all this, we are Fujifilm GFX users, this means we have a professional view of how these cameras work in a wide variety of situations allowing us to share our knowledge and help you get the most from your camera.

We offer 1 to 1 and small group workshops up to a maximum of 4 people. Accommodation is on site and we take care of everything from picking you up at the main airport 1 hour away, to meals and training. All workshops are flexible and can be tailored to your needs from beginners to experienced professionals.

Workshops are run regularly and we have put aside a number of workshops exclusively for GFX owners, allowing us to concentrate on the camera and it’s incredible abilities with like minded others.

Workshop dates for GFX owners in 2018 are ..

Winter workshop for the brave! Extreme weather and incredible environment for photography, coincides with the famous Jokkmokk winter market with the opportunity to see the indigenous Sami people and their reindeer.

January 30th to February the 3rd 2018

Monday 24th September to Friday 28th September 2018

All three of these weeks are exclusive to GFX owners and are discounted from the normal workshop rate of 2,300 Euros to 1,900 Euros per person.

Prices exclude flights to Lulea, Sweden, personal snacks and drinks as well as alcoholic drinks.
