How to Create a Fake Firmware 4.00 Rumor in less than 1 Minute :)

Yesterday a fake X-T3 firmware 4.00 screenshot was circulating on the web.

I told everybody it’s a fake, and nobody at Fujifilm is currently editing the firmware page to get it ready for an imminent release.

We also set things straight, by saying that a firmware update for the X-T3 is in the works, but it won’t be out before spring or maybe even summer.

But some of you still didn’t believe me, as the screenshot looked so realistic.

So, I took about 1 minute of my life, and created a fake firmware 4.00 myself, so you can see it is indeed a super easy fake to make.

I hope this ends the discussion one time and forever.

Guys, FujiRumors will always treat you with respect, and work hard to give you accurate information. So here you are in 100% fake clickbait rumor free zone ;).

Metabones Introduces Nikon G Lens to Fuji G mount (GFX) Expander 1.26x

Petersburg, VA, USA, Feb 21, 2020: Metabones® and Caldwell Photographic Inc. are pleased to jointly announce the NF – GFX mount Expander 1.26x. It allows Nikon F mount lenses to be mounted on Fujifilm GFX camera bodies without getting dark and / or soft corners. The magnification factor of 1.26x perfectly matches the image circle of the full-frame Nikon lenses to the medium-format sensor of the GFX series cameras, and therefore the diagonal FOV remains exactly the same.

The optical design consists of 5 elements in 3 groups, incorporating ultra-high index Lanthanum based optical glass as well as one element made of fused silica, resulting in extremely good performances with professional-grade f/2.8 zoom lenses. For example, a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens becomes a 30-88mm f/3.5 zoom, and a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens becomes an 88-252mm f/3.5 zoom. Please note that because of the nature of focal extenders, the aperture values decrease by 2/3 of a stop; f/2.8 becomes f/3.5 and f/2 becomes f/2.5. High-speed fixed focal length lenses such as the 50mm f/1.4 will be transformed into a very fast standard lens 63mm f/1.8 for the GFX system.

The GFX mount Expander features Metabones’ unique manual G aperture adjustment mechanism, which has the same angular throw distance as earlier Nikon Ai/AiS lenses, which features a linearized f-stop adjustment as a function of aperture ring adjustment angle. The mechanism is clickless in order to maximize its usefulness to cinematographers.

This Guy Fine Tuned his Classic Chrome Film Simulation to Get Bleach Bypass on his Fujifilm X-T2

According to our rumors, the Fujifilm X-T4 will introduce a new film simulation called “bleach bypass“.

But Elio could not wait for that one, and tried to create his own bleach bypass film simulation by fine tuning Classic Chrome film simulation on his Fujifilm X-T2 already back in 2018!

it starts with the fantastic Classic Chrome simulation to take advantage of its contrast and soft colors.

Bleach bypass is a technique from traditional film industry, characterized by hard contrast and low saturation. One movie that uses bleach bypass extensively is Saving Private Ryan.

Now, how close Elio’s Bleach Bypass version will be to the real and final new bleach bypass film simulation introduced in the Fujifilm X-T4, we will only know on February 25/26, when the Fujifilm X-T4 will be announced.

You can read all the settings and see the results at elio.blog.

The Fujifilm X-T4 will be announced February 25/26 (depending on your time zone here)
