Fujifilm X100F at George Bush Funeral, X-Pro2 at Angela Merkel Press Event, Fujifilm X in Ads and Cinema and More


Fuji X Virus is Spreading

A few times a year, here on FujiRumors we like to curate a little corner, where we collect curiosities, such as famous personalities spotted with Fujifilm gear, Fujifilm gear used at big events or in movies and ads and more.

Here is the last selection of this year.

Professional Work with Fujifilm?

The forums and youtube channels are full people, who repeat ad nauseam that only full frame is for Pros. And they sound so convinced, that they must be right.

Fujifilm in Big Newspapers

Alessandro wrote me:

I had a very nice weekend and I want to celebrate Fuji:) One of my photos came out in the Saturday’s edition of The Guardian, a well know British newspaper.

“Camden Town, London -The Mad Hatter (artist Leandro Facundo) has probably been photographed thousands of times, but among the many I’ve taken of him, I like this one in particular. It is intense and delicate”
