First Look at Fujifilm X-H2s and Frame.io – a Possible Workflow Revolution for Many Photographers
Recently Fujifilm and Adobe announced Frame.io support for the Fujifilm X-H2s.
Down below you can find a few videos explaining and showcasing how it will work.
To me it looks like there is a huge potential in this. It might even revolutionize the workflow of many photographers in future.
Imagine you shoot a wedding. Connect the camera to your phone or the local WiFi network, and while you shoot all your RAW files are instantly uploaded to the cloud as a backup. Then you come home and all the images are already available on Frame.io with no need to download them from your memory card.
Or sports photographers, who need to get the images to their editor as quickly as possible. No more dazzle with uploads. Just connect the camera and shoot. Your editor will pick live the images he needs.
Or if you are in conflict zones and a simple connection will allow you to instantly secure all your files.
And all the technology needed to make it work, already exists.
Fujifilm will be Adobes first partner in this regard along with RED. The Fujifilm X-H2S C2C support will come via a firmware update in spring 2023. You’ll need the new Fujifilm FT-XH file transmitter grip for this purpose.
In the talk with CineD, the manager does not exclude the possibility that it might work also on Fujfilm X-H2 one day, although he was very vague on this, elegantly eluding to give a clear answer, but also not wanting to totally rule out any possibility for that to happen.
