Fujifilm X-T30 vs Sony a6400

Chris and Jordan from DPReview TVcompared the Fujifilm X-T30 and the Sony a6400. Here are their findings:

  • the vast majority of people buy APS-C and not full frame in mid-priced mirrorless market range

Ergonomics and Controls
Winner: Fujifilm X-T30

  • biggest advantage for the Fujifilm X-T30 are the dial controls and ergonomics

  • With Fujifilm X-T30 it is easier to get great colors
  • Fuji sensor is newer, faster readout hence less rolling shutter, great if you use silent shutter or video

DJI Ronin S to add Fujifilm X-T3 Support

DJI Ronin S

The DJI Ronin S is a very popular 3-Axis Gimbal stabilizer (check out the AmazonUS customer reviews), and so it is no surprise that I keep up getting questions about if it finally will support Fujifilm cameras.

Finally today I can give you an answer. :)

FR-reader Mario (Instagram at @ummario) informed me that DJI now officially said on their forum, they are working on a firmware update to add Fujifilm X-T3 support.

I looks like the stellar Fujifilm X-T3 sales convinced DJI that it might be worth the effort!

Fujifilm X-T30 Firmware Update 1.01 Released

Fujifilm just released firmware update ver. 1.01 for Fujifilm X-T30 and announced another one for June.

The firmware update Ver.1.01 from Ver.1.00 incorporates the following issue:

  1. Improved operability of the Q (quick menu) button
    To avoid accidentally opening the Q (quick) menu, the button reaction time has been increased.*

    *FUJIFILM Corporation plans an additional firmware update in June. This will allow customers to use the Q button as a Fn button. This planned update also allows the user to disable the Q button and adds it as a choice in the Function (Fn) Settings enabling the option to assign it to a different Fn button

Remember that you can update your camera also using the camera remote app (how to guide here). If you want to update via SD-card, here is the download link. In this case, we recommend you read Tips for Updating your Firmware

Fujifilm X-T3: New Features Guide for Firmware 3.00

Fujifilm X-T3 New Features Guide

If I should judge from the amount of emails I have received in the last days, I’d say that you guys were more impatiently waiting for Fujifilm X-T3 firmware 3.00 rather than for Game of Thrones season 8 ;).

I promised you I will be ready to inform you 0.01 seconds after the firmware is published, and so I did.

And as usual, when a major firmware is released, Fujifilm has to update its Owners manual. So download now the Fujifilm X-T3: New Features Guide for Firmware 3.00 (PDF).

Some already asked for animal eye tracking, which is offered by Sony. Well, I remind you that this forgotten Fujifilm digital camera offered pet detection almost 10 years ago, so let’s hope Fujifilm will bring it to the Fujifilm X and GFX series, too.

Fujifilm X-T3 Firmware 3.00

Fujifilm X-T3 firmware version 3.00 has just been released. You can download it here.

The firmware update Ver.3.00 from Ver.2.10 incorporates the following issues:

  1. Strengthened the accuracy of face / eye detection AF performance
    The AF algorithm has been improved along with the accuracy of face / eye detection AF.

The improvements in AF are applicable to both still photos and video recording.
  2. New Face Select function
    The Face Select function has been introduced to provide priority auto-focus, tracking and exposure on a selected subject when multiple faces have been detected. The priority face can be selected by using the touch screen or focus lever.
  3. Faster AF speed for subjects at a distance
    A Double Tap Setting and Touch Function has been added to the touch screen settings*. The two settings must be set to OFF to provide a better touch screen response. These new settings allow a more intuitive touch operation when shooting, AF and focus area select.
  4. Intuitive operation of touch screen
    A Double Tap Setting and Touch Function has been added to the touch screen settings(*1). The two settings must be set to OFF to provide a better touch screen response. These new settings allow a more intuitive touch operation when shooting, AF and focus area select.

  5. Focus frame when EYE DETECTION SETTING
    When using EYE DETECTION SETTING, only focus frame on eye is displayed.
  6. Improvement of AF/AE area tracking when using EVF
    When using the EVF, tracking function for AF/AE area movement by touch screen is improved.
  7. Push function of the Focus stick when INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING
    The push function is disabled when INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING.
  8. FLICKER REDUCTION function
    The options are changed from ON/OFF to ALL FRAMES/FIRST FRAME/OFF. And when choosing FIRST FRAME, the speed of CH countinuous shooting is imroved.
  9. Message when IMAGE TRANSFER ORDER
    If there is no image of TRANSFER ORDER when turing on a camera, no message appears.
  10. Fix of slight defects
