Fujifilm X-T2/Pro2 Firmware Update on March 27 :: Lok’s GFX First Look :: Fujifilm X-T2 Vs. Nikon D500

Let’s dive deep into the youtube world today, and see what vloggers there have to share about the wonderful world of Fujifilm :-)

Firmware Rumor

According to Eric Marks (video above), the Fujifilm Kaizen Firmware for X-T2 and X-Pro2 will be out on March 27. At minute 3:42 he says that:

From everything that I’ve heard, it seems like these updates are going to be officially released on Fujifilm’s website on March 27th. That’s just what I’ve heard popping around. I’ve no clue if that’s a fact or not. But it did say late March, and it’s already the 23rd, so it’s going to be soon

Sounds like something you should take with a grain of salt ;). See the video at finding middle earth youtube

What’s Next From Fujifilm? … and First 2017 Rumor Check (100% Correct Rumors)

Two or three times a year, I feel like I need to put a bit of order in the whirlwind of rumors, and give you guys a well-ordered overview of the rumors shared so far this year by FujiRumors.

It’s also the opportunity for me to check back the accuracy of all the rumors I’ve shared this year.

So high time for some facts:

  • 229 blog post published so far in 82 days (2017)
  • 36 rumors shared in 82 days (2017)
  • 12 rumors still to be verified
  • 24 correct rumors out of 24 verifiable rumors
  • 0 wrong rumors out of 24 verifiable rumors
  • 100% correct rumors

Sure, there are still 12 rumors that have to be verified, not all will be correct (because they are wrong or Fujifilm will change plans), but I’d say of the 12 remaining, I wouldn’t be surprised if most are correct.

A big hug goes to all sources, from the most anonmyous to the most trusted one, who decided to help me to find the right path in the fake rumor jungle and to put excitement in the Fuji world by sharing accurate rumors. You make being an Fuji shooter even more fun :-)

Also, thanks to everybody, who spotted some interesting Fuji related news/rumor/deal/review on the web, and took his/her time to drop me an email with the link to it. Much appreciated… and feel free to keep it up.

thanks to all,

  • Fujifilm X100F Allows You to Change ISO Value with Command Dial (Probably Coming to X-Pro2 via Firmware) (shared January 16) – NOTE 1: X100F part is correct. To see if it comes also to X-PRO2. NOTE 2: The firmware announcement of March 23 says that this feature will come via Firmware, but only to X-T2. This sounds very strange to me. Could be an error of Fujifilm. I’ll wait for the firmware to come out, and if indeed the X-Pro2 does not get this feature, move this rumor in the wrong rumors section

  • This could actually be by far the longest section…. I’d just need to publish all the fakes ;) .

Big Fujifilm X-T2 and X-Pro2 Kaizen Firmware to be Announced March 23

 photo KAIZEN_zps1fdb780f.png

Ok, there is a bit of confusion regarding the epic Kaizen Firmware update coming for X-T2 and X-Pro2, especially since Fujifilm, just today here, released a firmware for X-T2, X-Pro2 and X-T1 (and the EF-X500 flash).

I went again through the messages the 2 anonymous sources wrote me, and if I got it right (but please sources correct me if I’m wrong) this is what Fujifilm currently plans:

  • Announcement of the huge Firmware udpates with 33 improved features on March 23 (Note: Announcement, not release)
  • First Firmware coming still in March
  • Second Firmware coming in May

Sure, delays can always happen, but the important thing to know is that X-T2 and X-Pro2 owners will soon be able to download a complete new camera… for free :)

long live Kaizen :)

RUMOR: Massive (!!!) Kaizen Love for Fujifilm X-T2 and X-Pro2 in March and May. 33 Improvements!

 photo KAIZEN_zps1fdb780f.png

The Big Kaizen Party

Hold on tight, guys! Because X-T2 and X-Pro2 shooters are going to have a lot of fun soon.

Ready?

Two (2) sources decided to put the entire X-T2 and X-Pro2 shooter community in a frenzy of enthusiasm, by sharing with us via rumor box what follows:

There will be 2 firmware updates coming. One later this month (March), and another one is currently scheduled for May. And now comes the hot part: the firmware for X-Pro2 and X-T2 will bring 33 improved features, such as:

  • extended bracketing (maximum of 9 shots in total)
  • updates for the AF system
  • copyright info to exif
  • improved video functionality
  • viewfinder enhancements
  • GUI change
  • many others :)

A massive firmware update, worth of the best Kaizen!

Thanks for sharing, anonymous guys with nick-name. And just in case in future you decide to share more tidbits, don’t hesitate to contact me using the same nick name.

(NOTE: firmware updates can be postponed anytime. In the past, Fujifilm gave public deadlines for firmware updates, but it happened so often that they couldn’t respect their own deadline, that they decided to stop any public statement about new firmware release.)

What else will come? (personal specualtion):

And what else would you like? :)

P.S.: if you are an X100S/T shooter, please, here is the contact form to write directly to Fujifilm Japan… you may drop them an email asking for a bit of Kaizen Love.

take care,

Clarification: Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10 Hybrid digital/film (with USB-Charging) and Instax Square SQ Film Only

Fujifilm Instax Square SQ Film only

Fujifilm Instax Square SQ Film only

Whops… seems I mixed up something yesterday regarding the Instax Square rumors. Sorry, I’m going to correct it today :)

2 days ago I’ve reported about the first leaked image of the Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10. The image showed a LCD screen on the back and 6 buttons.

I’ve immediatly contacted sources, who confirmed our suspects: the Instax SQ10 is a digital/film hybrid instax camera. In fact, sources also told me that the Instax SQ10 will have a microSD card slot.

During the talk with a source, I also aksed if there will be other Instax Square versions. The source confirmed, and promised me an image for the day after of the Instax SQ… and so it did.

I’ve shared the image of the Instax SQ here on FujiRumors yesterday, and for some mysterious reason I told you it will be hybrid camera.

But actually the source never said this. It only send me the picture of another Instax Square version (the Instax SQ), without adding any comment. So, when yesterday I wrote you it will be hybrid, the source was so kind to contact me again today and tell me I’d better correct that. Only the Instax Square SQ10 will be hybrid. The Instax SQ instead will be film only.

And btw, the source added another detail: the Instax Square SQ10 will have USB-charging (in addition to the micre-SD card slot)

ok… now I think it’s time for me for a little break. I’m going to grab my dog, my camera, and go out a bit ;)
