LibRaw Adds GFX, X100F, X-T20 Support ** Download GFX, X100F, X-T20 RAW Files ** 50/2 No Noticeable Vignetting or Distortion

LibRaw GFX, X100F, X-T20 Support

LibRaw contacte me and told me that FastRawViewer 1.3.8 Release Candidate and RawDigger 1.2.18 Beta now support Raw files from X100F X-T20 GFX 50S. Note that compressed RAW for GFX 50S is not supported yet.

They told me that they would be very much interested in any feedback from FujiRumors readers.

… first feedback about XF 50mm F2

So now you just need the RAW files. They can be found at photographyblog. Go to the X-T20 sample page, X100F samples page and GFX sample page (file size over 100MB) then scroll down to the RAW images.

FR-reader Bjoern checked out the recent RAW samples of the X-T20 (with 50mmF2) and X100F and here is his feedback

I have taken a quick look at the X-T20 RAW samples using Libraw, which does not apply any automatic corrections during development (Like Vignetting and distortion compensation) and it seems like there is no noticeable vignetting and distortion even at f/2! This is a big difference to the 35mm f/2, whose images look like shot with a pinhole camera when they are uncorrected and are distorted really badly, unfortunately (see photozone).”

Fujifilm To Launch Professional Fujifilm GFX and X Cameras Service in Europe March 1 (Other Countries Soon, Too?) – PRESS RELEASE

Join 5,000 GFX Fans and official X-photographers at the Fujifilm GFX Facebook Group

Fujifilm GFX and X series cameras PRO Service

So, once again, the rumor was correct… Fujifilm will indeed launch a professional service, and below is the full press release.

But note that the press release is for EU only (big markets like Germany and UK first). However, the last sentence of the press-release seems to indicate that other countries will follow:

Fujifilm is aware that professional photographers may also work outside Europe and will be in close touch with repair centres in other major territories to ensure qualifying photographers are afforded a similar high level of service.”

Fujifilm GFX #1 Seller at BHphoto and #10 at AmazonUS

Join 5,000 Members (and GFX Beta Testers) at the Fujifilm GFX Facebook Group

The Fujifilm GFX is right now already marked as #1 Best Seller at BHphoto! I mean the camera is awesome for sure, but I wouldn’t have expected that it will make it that high in any kind of ranking. It is also selling well at AmazonUS, where it is #10 in the mirrorless camera ranking! It seems to be a good start… we can be cautiously optimistic ;) . Note that BHphoto says it will be available at the end of March.

Now let’s just hope Fuji won’t share any press release that says “we are sorry, but due to the high demand there will be delays

REMEMBER that until February 9, you have the chance to win $3,000 with FujiRumors & BHphoto at our big GFX Sweepstake.
