RUMOR: Adobe Support for Fujifilm GFX Coming This Week

Adobe_logo

This rumor does not come from my own sources, but has been shared by Chris (website) at the Fujifilm GFX faceook group here. I quote:

What if I told you, I heard from someone who knows someone who knows someone, that LR should support the GFX next week…” [the rumor was shared last week at the GFX group]

8,500 GFX owners and fans are discussing all things GFX at our GFX Facebook group. For GFX-exclusive news and rumors check out the dedicated GFX facebook page.

As you know, Iridient already supports the GFX. And Palle Schultz (yep, THE Palle Schultz), who a member of our GFX facebook group, shared his findings and image here.

Palle Schultz:

Played around again with a GFX RAW file. Now in Iridient Developer. Developed and maintained by one guy… pretty impressive. Exported to psd and played around a slightly bit in Lightroom. Iridient Developer is quite easy to use. If you know Camera RAW you know Iridient. But Iridient is coded by a photo pixelpeeping geek, that is for certain. The integrity of the files are kept intakt and you must be very agressive to overdo your pics in that application. I can highly recommend it as a RAW converter for the GFX.

It is shot handheld with the 63mm lens at 1600 ISO and at a pretty slow shutter speed. Hence the slight motion blur.

I’ve attached a slightly cropped picture and a 100% zoom.”

Fujifilm Working on the Ultimate $5,000+ APS-C X-Trans X-series Camera (also for Video) ** Grain Of Salt

Hey guys,

You might remember how recently a Fujifilm Manager saidwhen we announce our new telephoto prime [in 2018] we also need a higher performance body”.

What did he mean with “higher performance body“? The X-T3? Or maybe something completely different?

I’m not sure now… but I can tell you what I’m recently hearing.

Keep in mind… these are the first steps into a potentially very exciting rumor journey, but it’s just a fragile whisper at this stage, so please do NOT take this as a fact. I could follow a wrong hint, or maybe there is some truth in it…

Here is the thing:

I got some hints that Fujifilm is working on the ultimate X-series camera. It should be a camera that will top everything we know from Fujifilm so far in the APS-C world and it could also have some more cinema-centric aspects, that would make it the perfect companion for the newly announced MK18-55mm T2.9 and MK50-135mm T2.9.

I don’t know if the Manager quote above was refering to this camera, or “simply” to the X-T3. I’m still working on this.

However, one anonymous source shared some more details, telling me it should cost “around $5k” (or even more) and be still an X-Trans camera. (thanks for sharing… and I will investigate further the other details you sent me).

So guys, just follow FR, and let’s see how deep the rabbit whole really goes :-)

And of course, in case someone out there could help, please contact me at fujirumor@gmail.com or using the rumor box (with nickname if possible).

cheers
