Fujifilm’s New Coronavirus Test can Produce Results in 2 Hours

Share

Fujifilm announced that they developed a new fast test for Coronavirus. The New York Times writes:

The SARS-CoV-2 RT-qPCR Detection kit will be able to deliver results for the virus that causes COVID-19 faster than existing polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests, which presently take four to six hours, the company said.

Fujifilm said the new COVID-19 test will be released on April 15 in their press release (machine translated PDF)

I live here in Italy, and here there is a lot of talk about the urgent need for a fast, simple and affordable test to diagnose COVID-19. Many companies are working on it and I am happy to see Fujifilm is on it, too.

Fujifilm Issues Official Statement Regarding Fujifilm X100V Overheating Reports

Share

Last month we reported about a Fujifilm X100V overheating test made by Andrew.

He tested his Fujifilm X100V under a variety of situations and here are his findings:

  • for stills: In real world photographing there is nothing to be concerned about. He got the yellow overheating warning only after 600 continuous shots in combination with 100/105 Fahrenheit (37/40 Celsius) room temperature
  • for video: after 12 minutes 4K shooting he got overheating warning. So X100V is not a good camera to shoot longer 4K video clips

Fujifilm now issued an official statement regarding the heat generation and they seem to confirm Andrew’s findings, as Fujifilm says:

When the X100V is used in a continuous manner (such as with continuous video shooting) or when used in a high temperature environment or direct sun light, a user may feel the grip become noticeably hot, due to heat generation within the camera’s electric circuit board and battery.

Now, I doubt people who buy the Fujifilm X100V usually shoot 600+ continuous images under 105 Fahrenheit or longer 4K video clips. If you do so, the X100V wasn’t probably the camera for your needs, anyway.

But if you get the overheating warning much earlier than in Andrew’s test, then definitely contact your local Fujifilm support and ask for a fix.
