ETERNA for Fujifilm X-T2  & Co in LR

In the recent (and fantastic) TCSTV Fujifilm X-H1 live stream, Fuji Guy Billy said that ETERNA on Fujifilm X-T2 is very possible via firmware update in future, hence (almost) confirming our rumor of December 7 here.

But if you own the latest version of Lightroom, you can already now see how your X-TransIII files look with the ETERNA film simulation applied.

Follow these simple steps:

  • Download an EXIF Editor
  • Change the X-T2, X-Pro2, X-T20, X-E3 or X100F EXIF camera name of your image to “X-H1” using the EXIF Editor
  • Load your EXIF manipulated image in Lightroom Classic CC 7.2
  • ETERNA will be available in your Lightroom camera calibration menu
  • Smile :)

This “hack” is available already since a few days now, when Adobe added X-H1 support.

Will you try it? Then feel free to share your images and your findings here in the comments :)

UPDATE: Accurate Size Comparison: Fujinon XF 200mmF2 Vs. XF 50-140mmF2.8 Vs. XF 100-400mmF4.5-5.6 Vs. CaNikon Full Frame

Fujinon XF200mmF2 Size Comparison

UPDATE: Added comparison Canon 5DMK IV with Canon EF 300mm F2.8L IS USM and Nikon D850 with Sigma 300mm F2.8 EX APO DG HSM. Of course the APS-C XF200mm has to be compared to the equivalent Full Frame 300mm glass, and not 200mm!

Today Fujifilm published their first episode of the “Fujifilm X-H1 Development Story“.

The article includes a technical sketch of the Fujinon XF200mmF2 R LM OIS WR mounted on the brand new Fujifilm X-H1.

I used the technical sketch provided by Fujifilm (and camerasize.com) to photoshop a size comparison of the XF200mmF2 against the other big Fujinon glass, the XF50-140 and the XF100-400.

Keep in mind that there could be changes, since the sketch shows the current estimated size of the XF200mmF2. We are still in pre-production phase, so the final lens might see some changes.

The article linked above also says the XF200mmF2 R LM OIS WR will weight more than 2kg and that in order to withstand the stress, the mount part of the Fujifilm X-H1 has reinforced ribs.

FR-reader Panther wonders if Fujifilm implies, that the mount of the X-T2 can’t handle that stress. I guess we will get more answers soon, when the XF200mmF2 will be announced (witihin 2018).

Fujifilm X-H1 Development Story #1 -Frame. Fujinon XF200mmF2 will Weight more than 2kg

Fujifilm X-H1 Development Story

Fujifilm just published part 1 of their Fujifilm X-H1 development story.

Let’s examine the X-H1. The product planner requested the developers to make the body more robust so that new devices could be installed and the expected camera performance could be realized. In order to make the body more robust, the frame, which is made of magnesium alloys, needed to be strengthened by adding extra thickness. The frame is 125% thicker for X-H1, meaning that the frame has almost doubled in volume (1.25 x 1.25 x 1.25 = 1.95). The strength of the frame is almost twice as strong.

Portability and lightweight are the charm of the X Series. This should always be taken into account even when considering an exterior design that is more robust. The designer examined the frame closely and learned where the stress is most/least applied and where the extra strength is most/least needed. With the study, the following structure with pillars jointing the exterior part has been realized, which helped minimize the effect on body size.

[…] In near future there will be lenses that weigh more than 2kg. [note: given that they show the XF200mmF2 in the article, it’s save to assume they meant the 200mm]

To withstand the stress, the mount part is reinforced ribs as shown below.”

TCSTV Live Chat with Fuji Guy Billy: How Fujifilm made X-mount IBIS Compatibile and Why Would Chris Destroy the X-H1? ;)

Share

TCSTV Live Stream with Fuji Guy Billy

TheCameraStoreTV had a fantastic live stream with Fuji Guy Billy today, and of course it’s all about the Fujifilm X-H1. Make sure to check it out here.

I was lucky enough to attend the live stream and make my questions, but Jordan anticipated me on the first big question I wanted to make to Billy: back in 2016 Fujifilm said X mount is not compatible with IBIS. What did Fuji do on the Fujifilm X-H1 to make it compatible? Here is Billy’s answer:

We understand how IBIS works with pretty much all brands. We thought it was a very strong feature to incorporate.

At that time when we said that statement, the technology for us wasn’t there yet. Because, when we develop our cameras, image quality is number 1 for us. And we know that with IBIS, there is always some sort of loss in that, so we needed to develop a system that still mantains that high strict image quality. That really was successful with the X-H1.

We had to make the IBIS system a little bit larger in order to do so. That’s why the X-H1 itself is slightly bigger to accommodate that.

It’s the only IBIS system that has a dual processor that can make 10,000 calculations and that corrects instantly for any movement.”

How I understand this, is that Fujifilm studied other brands’ IBIS systems, they saw that those solutions won’t work on Fuji cameras, they needed time to develop a technology specific for their cameras, and their solution ended up requiring the whole camera to become bigger compared to other systems.

Heard that, I asked Billy if this means that IBIS won’t come to smaller Fujifilm cameras in future. Billy answered:

currently the IBIS system is quite large and that’s why this camera itself is large. We really want to maintain image quality. Now it’s very important for us to develop the system. I think as we learn to grow and develop, who knows where that technology will go.”

This makes hope that one day we will see IBIS also on smaller cameras. But currently, it’s not possible. Related to this, I remind you that we rumored the Fujifilm X-T3 has no IBIS.

Now just a few more highlights of a long and very interesting live chat…. oh, and do NOT miss the Wooden Niccolls movie shot entirely on X-H1.

  • Jordan says Fujifilm has quickly gone from “nothing” to “very amazing” in the video market
  • Nobody buys a GH5 or A7sII to do professional stills and video. They are video cameras that have stills option. The X-H1, though, is a fantastic stills camera that happens to do excellent video.
  • Fujifilm will offer the LUT file for ETERNA. Eterna great skin tones. ETERNA on X-T2 is very possible in future (as we rumored here, it will come)
  • X-H1 has Jordans’ favorite APS-C shutter since the Pentax K3II. Super quite.
  • Billy confirms the SD relay recording, as we rumored here
  • 10bit: X-H1 sensor and processor don’t have the speed yet to support the incredible data 10bit has.
  • there is some rolling shutter, but pretty well controlled, especially with some lenses and IBIS
  • Firmware updates are costly, but Fujifilm is committed to them
  • X-H1 has much larger heat sink, and processor can run much higher
  • Video Autofocus: Canon is on top, but Fuji and Sony are following.
  • 15 minutes limit in 4K is due to sensor heat
  • The little things Fuji cares: they made the EVF sticking out, to avoid the nose to touch the screen, they improved the mechanism of the 3-way tilt screen and more
  • With manual focus lenses only, you only have 3 axis stabilization, because in oder to know shift, you need to know subject distance.
  • EVF black out is shorter than on X-T2
  • & a lot more… check it out and enjoy!
