Share

 photo asd_zpsd998cfb5.png

X-T1 shooters will soon be able to download a complete new camera, X-E2 shooters will get some sweet new features and X-E1/X-PRO1 will get a minor update too. The discussion about it is hot in this post here.

But there is also a new X30 firmware, and I won’t miss to share this information here on Fujirumors, too. No new features, just a bug fix. You can download it here: “The phenomenon is fixed that in rare cases, AF lock can be released while pressing the shutter button halfway.”

BTW, the X30 is available for only $509 at cameraland in silver here and in black here.

FUJIFILM announced Macro Extension Tubes MCEX-11 and MCEX-16

Fujifilm just announced here Macro Extension Tubes MCEX-11 and MCEX-16, X-Mount Lens-exclusive accessories that expand the world of macro shooting. Download PDF here.

PRESS RELEASE

November 20, 2014

FUJIFILM Corporation is pleased to announce that two new dedicated X-Mount system Macro Extension Tubes; the MCEX-11 and MCEX-16, will be available from the middle of December 2014.
Macro extension tubes are inserted between the lens and the camera body and increase the distance between the lens elements and the sensor enabling users to focus on subjects much closer to the camera.

1) Two types (11mm, 16mm) will be available.

You can choose from the two types of tubes depending on the level of magnification you require.

2) Electronic contacts allow you to shoot with AF and AE using the tube.

Electronic connections automatically pass information between Fujinon X-Mount lenses and Fujifilm X-series camera bodies so you can still use autofocus and control the aperture while using the tubes.

3) Designed exclusively for the XF lenses and X-series cameras

The mount rings of both tubes are made of high-grade solid metal and are precisely manufactured to suit the XF lenses and the X-series interchangeable cameras perfectly.

4) Maximum Magnification of the Macro Extension Tube

The table below details the Working Distance (distance from the top of the lens barrel to the subject) and the Shortest Shooting Distance (distance from the image sensor to the subject) of each of the current Fujinon X Mount lenses with and without the tubes attached. Some tubes do not work with some lenses. These are indicated below by the grey boxes.
The shooting distance and shooting magnification change according to the position of the focusing lens group. The table shows reference values for when the focusing lens group is in the position to shoot the closest object.

BIG Cosyspeed Giveaway: Follow & Visit rumor sites & Cosyspeed and WIN one out of 15 bags (camslinger bags / phonebags)!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Hi, this is Thomas from COSYSPEED.

It’s super cool that we can have one of our new CAMSLINGER models as a giveaway for your readers! I’m sure many of them would like this new concept of carrying a mirrorless camera (or Superzooms or smaller DSLRs aswell) on the hip or as a sling bag. It’s not a solution to transport large amounts of gear as the bags are on the smaller side, but for daily live when out shooting with smaller gear it will be a very quick and good solution.

Keep on going with your great blog and many thanks, Thomas
