About Life and Gear
Oh… lucky those of you, who could just enjoy the solar eclipse!
I have never seen one, but I googled, and I might have my chance to photograph one on 2nd of August 2027.
10 years of waiting might seem a lot, but when I saw Seth’s image (top image), where the gigantic spectacle of celestial bodies becomes just a small point into a much bigger frame (and space), I’m reminded of my own real dimension: I’m just an even smaller point admiring it all… and my ten years are just a glimpse of an eye.
A glimpse of an eye… and I perceive that….
… it’s not about putting more years into our lives, but more life into our years.
So let’s try to have good 10 years, and to have fun, until the day I can finally photograph the solar eclipse with my… with… I wonder… what gear will I use in 10 years?
Maybe an X-EPhoton? Or an X-TQuantum? An iPhone? And will Fuji’s rangefinder cameras finally have a tilt screen? Questions, millions of questions, nailed in my brain like stars pinned on the firmament.
Take care my friends… all will be good… enjoy it :)
Short summary by FR-reader Steven – svw-photography (thanks for notifying me via email):
There is a new function setting (f11) that enables support for the non-TTL strobes. It has to be set at 02. All groups must be set to manual mode. If you set one to TTL, the non-TTL strobes won’t fire at anything above sync speed. I tested with TT600 and it works. I’ve read on a FB page that the AD360 version 1 (non TTL) also works
What has also been fixed is the support for X100F and X100T. Now shutterspeeds up to 1/1250th are possible (although I tested at 1/1600th and it was OK). Above that (1/2000th), the flash fires, but out of sync because I get a black frame.
Support for GFX50s, I didn’t test, because I don’t have one.

I am happy to announce the success of development of Steelsring smart adapters for C645 and EF lenses to GFX camera body. It is in production now, and will be available for sales in September, it will be reasonably priced, to be announced later.
Automatic lenses identification, includes all C645 lens, and theoretically all EF lens (but only Canon and Sigma lens will be tested).
Accurate lens params (Lens type, name, focal length, zooming info, aperture, etc ) passing to GFX and EXIF recording. So you can use the right info for exposure, and know pictures took by which lens and in what params.
Fast/accurate AF, comparable to FUJI GF native lenses. AF faster than CDAF mode of Sony E cameras. AF is not possible for C645 120 f/4 MACRO and EF brand MF lenses.
Aperture control through camera body, works with all C645 lenses ( Can switch to Lens Aperture Ring control too ) and EF lenses.
Image stablization activation/deactivation for EF lenses with IS, controllable from GFX body.
Plug and play. You just use it as usual, no extra equipment/setup are needed. Mount your lens on the adapter, put the adapter on the camera, turn the camera power on, then you are good to go.
USB socket for self-firmware upgrade.
All above features were implemented and tested already. When sales begining, C645/GFX adapter will be tuned against all C645 lenses including Mutar 1.4x. Not all EF lenses will be tuned into the EF/GFX first firmware release, but it’s upgradable.
Currently tested EF lenses are quite limited,
EF 135 f/2L, EF 24-105 f/4 L I,EF 17-40 f/4 L, EF 35 f/1.4 L I, EF-S 18-55 II, Canon EF TS-E 17 f/4L, Canon EF TS-E 24 f/3.5 II, Canon EF 100 f/2.8 Macro IS II and Sigma 135 f/1.8 art, Sigma 35 f/1.4 ART, Sigma 50 f/1.4 ART .
