Fujifilm Accessories Roundup

I regulary get questions about the best 3rd party batteries for the Fujifilm X System.

We reported about it several times here on FujiRumors, last time here, when ultralightphotography compared 13 third party batteries for Fujifilm.

But given that many seem to have missed our battery specific roundups, I will share again today…. and of course a lot of new stuff :) .

Sharpening Fujifilm X-TRANS files with No Wormy Artifacts in ADOBE and the X-T100 BAYER sensor has Worms, too!

Sharpening Fujifilm RAW Files

In our Debunking Fujifilm X-Trans Myths article, we already explained that you can get wormy-artifacts less results using Adobe products only. Sure, you have to sharpen differently compared to how you sharpen Bayer RAW files, but it is possible.

And it is curious to note that 2 products from the same company, Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop, behave differently when it comes to X-Trans RAW sharpening. Out of the box, Photoshop works very well, Lightroom not so.

If you don’t use Photoshop, my recommendation is to use Irdient X Transformer as a Lightroom plug-in, so you take advantage of Iridient’s better default X-Trans demosaicing directly in Lightroom.

Anyway, the more X-Shooters make videos or write about how to get best sharpening results with X-Trans files, the better it is. We have to spread the word that you don’t have to live with wormy artifacts at all.

This is How Fujifilm’s Electronic Images Stabilization Works on X-T100

Fujifilm X-T100 EIS

The Spanish site Fujistas (youtube video) published a video that shows how the electronic image stabilization (EIS) works on the Fujfilm X-T100. It works only in video mode so far.

Mechanical OIS and IBIS will always work better, but the EIS is also quite effective, and I think we Fuji Lovers would not hate it to get this feature on other X series cameras, too.

Venus Optics Laowa 9mm f/2.8 – A Non-Landscape Photographer’s Review

The Laowa looks amazing with the exception of its horrible blue band


Guest Post by The Overrated Photographer instagram / website

A couple of months back I was offered pre-release Laowa 9mm for review by the local distributor in Australia. At the time I was fairly busy with work and I’m not a big landscape person, so I ended up turning it down and waiting for my own copy. The release took longer than expected, so in hindsite I probably should have taken them up on it.

For those who don’t know, the Laowa 9mm is an ultrawide manual lens available in Fujifilm mount. It’s a rectilinear lens so you don’t have the same level of distortion experienced with a typical fisheye. I’ll be completely honest and say I don’t know a lot about Laowa. According to the website, it’s made by Venus Optics who have been around since 2013 and are based out of China. Having never tried any of their gear before this, I can’t comment on any of their previous gear.

I still haven’t had a chance to take many photos, hence the lack of landscape photos, probably made worse by having kids which means it’s hard to get up for sunrise shoots when you’re helping get kids to school in the morning. I will update the missing landscapes as I get out for more landscape photography.

Thanks to Adam from the Laowa distributor in Australia for getting me my lens so quickly.
