Firmware Updates for Fujifilm X-T4, X-T3, X-T2, X-T1, X-H1, X-Pro3, X-Pro2, X-Pro1, X-E3, X-T20 and X-T30 Released

Fujifilm has released several firmware updates.

Down below you’ll find all the details officially shared by Fujifilm.

The main course of the meal is improved support for the Fujinon XF50mmF1.0 R WR. for “enhanced AF speed and enabling Color Shading Correction to mitigate subtle color casts when images are made at the lens’ maximum F1.0 aperture“.

I wish Fujifilm would specify, which bugs are fixed. For example, as FujiRumors found out for first, the recent X-T4 “minor bug fix” was actually a major one, as it fixed the exposure stepping issue.

Anyway, down below all the details.

Now they are redesigning those lenses, so that they won’t damage your X-Pro3 anymore (see damage in this post).

Just a few days, Viltrox has also released a MK II version of the 85mm f/1.8. Now the updated Viltrox 23mm f/1.4 AF has been released too.

The Fujifilm X-Pro3 will Save Photography and More Companies Should Take the Risk to Do Unique Things

GxAce published his Fujifilm X-Pro3 long term review with the title “the camera that will save photography“.

So, why should the X-Pro3 save photography.

in a world of fully articulating screens and in body image stabilization, cameras these days are getting pretty stale to me. They all pretty much look the same and they all pretty much have the same features, except for one: the Fujifilm X-Pro3

I think it’s awesome that Fujifilm basically ignored everything and made a camera that is unique. It’s such a cool idea, what photography needs to be doing to stay relevant.

I hope more camera companies will take risks, do unique things, have unique ideas.

We have reached the point where every cameras is amazing, they all pretty much can do the same things. What I think will be the differentiating factor going on in the future will be how we interface with the camera.

For the rest of the review, check out the first video down below, where you’ll find more X-Pro specific content.

Pure Travel Photography in Sri Lanka with the Fujifilm X-Pro3 and No Display

guest post by Andy Gawlowski – worldwidewax.ch

Back than in 2016 it was FUJIFILM X-Pro2 which I was able to test for my travel photography in Morocco (Article FUJI RUMORS) . I was so impressed by the camera that I sold my entire Canon full frame system and switched to FUJIFILM. The camera was small and light, it looked damn good and took simply great pictures. Especially the compact form factor was an unbeatable argument for my travel photography. One of the pictures I took in the port of Essouira even made it into the Top 50 in the “Travel” category of the Sony World Photography Awards 2017.

In autumn 2019 FUJIFILM released its successor the X-Pro3. The announcement immediately caught my attention. Especially, when I heard about the unusual design concept. At first glance the camera doesn’t have a display on the back where you can review your photos. The X-Pro3 has a rear display that you first “cumbersomely” have to open to see and use it. The intention behind it is relatively clear. FUJIFILM wants to encourage photographers to focus more on the process of taking pictures rather than constantly looking at the display to review their images. This is very reminiscent of the days of analog film photography and is also a concept that was already been tried by Leica. By the way this constant checking of photos is called “chimping” and can lead to losing attention and reference to the scenery in the current photographic moment. It’s something I used to observe with myself for quite a while but was luckily able to turn off. With time you simply get more self-confidence in your abilities and therefore you have to look at the display less often.

FUJIFILM Switzerland was kind enough to lend me the X-Pro3 with the FUJINON 14mm f/2.8 lens for my two-week trip to Sri Lanka. I intentionally limited myself to only one lens in order to give my full attention to the camera itself.

FUJIFILM Fiscal Year 2020: Imaging Division Suffers COVID-19, Operating Income Down 51%, Revenue Down 14%, Strong GFX100/X100V/X-Pro3 Sales

Fujifilm has now published its fiscal report for the fiscal year 2020 (1 April 2019 – 31 March 2020).

Fellow FR-reader Mistral has summarized it in French over at the French forum chassimages. In short:

Fujifilm as a whole is still doing well even if it has not reached the expected goals given the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic on its last quarter.

Imaging Solutions is the division with the lowest performance.

Fujifilm records a loss in the last quarter. The decline in sales of digital cameras and their lenses has accelerated throughout the year.

The only positive note: the Fujifilm GFX100 keeps up selling strong, as well as the Fujifilm X100V and Fujifilm X-Pro3 are mentioned positively in the various reports.
