X-E1 firmware 1.02 coming soon?

Photobucket

Our reader Georg just received his X-E1. He checked his firmware version. Take a look at the image above. Body version firmware 1.02. He sent me a link to this German Forum, where another guy claims to have the 1.02 firmware.

I checked Fujis site, but the 1.02 firmware is still not available there (click here).

This could mean that Fuji is about to release the new firmware update soon. But, as Georg says: “one bumper: there is still no selectable shutter speed in auto iso.

Thanks Georg, and leave a comment if you also have the 1.02 firmware on your X-E1

P.S.: set minimum shutter speed in auto ISO is leading our X-series future improvements wish list poll. Keep on voting. Choose 3 options.

X-100 replacement with X-TRANS sensor coming soon

Photobucket

 

If you check page 16 in the current edition of f11 (click here) – an online photography magazine and well worth a read – there’s an X-E1 review in which the photographer mentions an x-trans equipped x100 replacement due out early next year. if true, this could tie in with the fuji announcement early January.

The photographer that wrote this review is sponsored by Fuji (click here)….it’s possible that someone dropped something into conversation and he dropped it into his article.

Rumor: First hints about a Fuji announcement in early January!

This is still a very young website and it needs time to build a network of “sources” that may be able to share hints about possible future products. Yet we just heard from one source that Fuji is about to announce new cameras in early January.

We can definitely expect a new bunch of compact cameras. The CES event in Las Vegas is traditionally a place where manufacturers display their new mass products. But you know, back on January 10th Fuji announced the first X camera (the X PRO 1). They may want to celebrate this with a new X camera or lens?

X-TRANS potential unlocked? Phase one confirmes X-series support

This could be a really great news!

Lionel12 of the Phase One Crew writes in this forum (click here): “Let me be a bit on lim here, all you Fuji lowers – look for next Capture One release – real soon now.

This is his answer to all the Fuji X photographers who are waiting for Capture One to support the Fuji X-series RAW’s.

I’m sure you agree with dogmatheque when he says: “This is great news. I sincerely hope you overcame X-trans difficulties. Can’t wait to wave silkypix goodbye.”

Now, we have to wait, and hope that Capture One “tamed” the X-Trans files and that we can finally enjoy the full potential of the X-PRO1 and the X-E1!

So let’s hope they made a better job than Adobe… we will soon have the answer!

Thanks to David who wrote me an email and directed my attention to this forum!

ebayUS has the X-E1 kit + permanent X-PRO1 price drop

Hi… again! ;)

First: We read here on brandonremler that the price drop on the X-PRO1 body goes only from Nov 25th to Feb 2, 2013. But we’ve received the information today that the price drop should be permanent! So you have time until 02/2/2013 to benefit of the $600 rebate (X-PRO1 + lens), and afterwards the X-PRO1 body only will remain at $1400!

Second: Just wanted to tell you, that there is the first X-E1 kit with 18-55mm lens available at ebayUS (click here). For $1300 you can purchase the package.

You’re still thinking if you should buy it or not? Well, bertstephani.com (click here) has already made his decision: the X-E1 will be his perfect second camera. “As soon as I get it, I won’t have to lug a big DSLR with me for backup anymore on most of my assignments and I’ll probably sell some of my DSLR gear.” Read the third and final part of his review and look at his images here.

Third: amazon has started shipping the X-E1 kit (click here), according to emails of Fujirumors reader.
