KAIZEN :: New Firmware Will Allow (Some) Fujifilm X-Series Cameras to Add Copyright Information to Images

 photo KAIZEN_zps1fdb780f.png

I’ve already told you here, that Fujifilm plans a new Kaizen Firmware update.

Well, today I have an update for you. According to a FR-source, some cameras, and for sure the Fujifilm X-T2, should get the ability to add in camera copyright to your images.

If this is true, well, then Fujifilm finally listened to a long-term firmware request by the X-shooter community. Let’s hope that also “older” X-series cameras will get this feature… but I would not be too optimistic about this.

And as always, Firmware rumors are tricky. So no matter how trusted or not the source is, take it with a grain of salt.

Fujifilm X-T20 Specs Update :: 2-Way Tilt Screen (and Not 3-way or Articulating)

I received some emails of fellow X-shooters, pointing me to some rumors saying that the Fujifilm X-T20 will have an articulating screen.

I have to inform you that it’s a fake. There won’t be any articulating screen, and not even a 3-way tilting screen like on the X-T2 or GFX. The X-T20 will have a regular 2-way tilt screen, just like the Fujifilm X-T10… with the difference that it will be a touch screen. And it also won’t have a Joystick, as reported here.

The X-T20 will be a downspece’d version of the X-T2. 24MP sensor + X-Processor Pro, but no super-high continuous AF burst, no weather sealing, 1 SD card slot and probably no 4K.

All the latest and greatest Fujifilm goodness will be launched on Janaury 19. Just tune in to FujiRumors… you’ll get all the news and rumors. And make sure you won’t miss anything, by following us also on Facebook, RSS-feed and Twitter.

For most part, the Fuji X-T20 will be for the X-T2 what the current X-T10 is for the X-T1: a downspece’d and cheaper version of the flagship. So expect the new 24MP sensor and X-Processor Pro, but not a super-high continuous AF burst mode, no weather sealing, 1 SD card slot and probably no 4K, since the camera will also be smaller than the X-T2, and hence heat dissipation will be a problem.

But the probably biggest difference will be the following: the Fujifilm X-T20 will not have a joystick. Instead, it will feature a pinch to zoom capable touch screen.

Fujifilm Will Launch Professional Support Service Along with the GFX Camera (New Source) :: Pentax 645z Vs. Fuji GFX Size Comparison

The Fujifilm GFX is a camera that definitely appeals to Pro photographers and crafted around their needs. But what Pro’s also absolutely need is Professional Support Service!

Well, I’m pleased to inform you, that according to information I received by a new source, Fujifilm will launch a special Pro service along with the Fujifilm GFX camera. The source did not specify in which countries this service will be available. I’ve updated the Full GFX Specs List based on facts on rumors with this information.

And just saying, Fuji… many Pro also use your X-series cameras (a great system for professional work, too)… I hope you have some nice surprise also for them ;)

The Big Fujifilm GFX Recap :: Everything We Know is Here… RGB Color Histogram, Base ISO 100, AF-Points + Much More!

Here is a big GFX Overview, based on information Fujifilm shared at the Photokina 2016 and later, and also based on Rumors you could find here on FujiRumors. I’ll mark with “R” the rumors and with “F” the facts, although keep in mind that even the facts revealed earlier by Fujifilm could have changed in the meantime.

Everything you can read below has already been published on FR starting from September 2016, but I thought a Recap could be useful, since I keep getting emails with questions, that have already been answered in the past, but given the huge amount of information are easy to miss.

I strongly recommend you to allow push notifications and follow us on Facebook, RSS-feed and Twitter in order not to miss anything.
