How to Save and Restore Your Camera Settings

How to Save & Restore Camera Settings

Every now and then I get emails from fellow Fujifilm X Shooters, complaining that their camera settings get completely deteleted. There are several reasons this can happen:

  • after firmware update (it should not happen, but it can)
  • discharging of the small build-in internal battery: happens if you leave your camera too long without battery. In case of new cameras, give it a long first charge, or settings will delete shortly after battery has been removed

So the first thing you can do, is to avoid the errors we mentioned above.

And yet, sometimes it’s not a user error (see firmware update), so you better have a Plan B in case all your settings get lost, and in our case, our Plan B is called Fuji X Acquire.

And since just right after the Fujifilm X-T3 firmware update, some FR-readers couldn’t find the back-up feature, I thought I share a quick guide on how to save & restore your Fujifilm camera settings using Fujifilm X Acquire.

STC Optics Clip-in Filters for Fujifilm X and GFX Series

Fujifilm Clip-in Filters

STC Optics, an Asian brand that manufactures various kinds of filters, said that clip-in filters for Fujifilm X series cameras are “coming soon“. In the video above they also show a clip filter for GFX, but so far no indications about it on their website.

As far as I know, STC Optics would be the first brand to release such filters for Fujifilm cameras. Other well known brands include Astro Hutech and Astronomik.

The fact that you attach the filter in front of the sensor instead of on in front of the lens, gives several advantages:

  • no need to buy big filter holders for lenses with protruding lens elements, such as fisheye-lenses for Fujifilm X or lenses like the Fujinon XF 8-16mmf/2.8
  • one filter works for all lenses, no matter what the lens filter size is
  • saves you money, since you do not have to buy lots of different filters
  • they are a good replacement for HSS (see video below)

STC Optics offers ND 16, 64, 400 and 1000.

Clip-in filters are very popular in the astrophotography community, especially light pollution and narrow-band filters, because they can work with both camera lenses and telescopes.

This is a good news for Fujifilm users, because Fujifilm cameras are very good for astro work, due to their superior sensitivity to some wavelengths (like hydrogen alpha, that most of the nebulae are made of) and good ISO performances.

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!
