Recently, I’ve shared a rather negative miXed zone, with stories of people, who sold their X-series cameras. And one of the main reasons for people to give back their Fuji was “video”.
And indeed, for many years, “video” was the weak spot of the X-series.
The problem? As top Fujifilm Manager (and also FujiRumors Lover) Toshihisa Iida said here, the X-Trans sensor requires a 20-30% increase in processing power compared to conventional Bayer sensors… and older EXR I and II processors simply could not process appropriately all the video data.

But things changed with the much faster X-Processor Pro, which dramatically improved the video output of Fujifilm cameras such as the X-T2 and X-Pro2.
Sure, there are still areas, where Fujifilm can improve (such as offering internal F-log), but the X-T2 & Co are finally used with great success by many videographers… and I will share one of them in today’s roundup… including some video-centric articles on Fujirumors you might have missed.
My Review Of The Fuji X-T2: The Ultimate 4K Mirrorless For Narrative Filmmakers at noamkroll
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 .
