Tethered Shooting for Fujifilm X-T2 and X-Pro2 on Linux – UPDATE: now also Fujifilm X-T3 supported

Tethered Shooting for X-T2 and X-Pro2 on Linux

NOTE TO READERS: Due to new EU regulation, we were forced to currently disable the guest post plug-in. But if you want to be featured on FujiRumors, you can still reach out to me and send me your articles via fujirumor@gmail.com.

UPDATE: Now also works with Fujifilm X-T3

Guest Post by Stefan Weiberg – www.hibiki.eu / @stefan_weiberg

During this years SUSE Hackweek Marcus Meissner, the maintainer of libgphoto2, worked on tethered shooting support for Fujifilm cameras on Linux.

The community provided him with a X-E2, X-T2 and X-Pro2. On top of that the developers of Timelapse+ (www.timelapseplus.com), which internally uses libgphoto2 to communicate with the camera, provided code for adding basic support.

As the X-E2 doesn’t support the necessary protocol for tethered shooting Marcus couldn’t add it for this camera. But for the X-T2 and X-Pro2 a lot of stuff now works:

  • white balance mode
  • image format (quality and size)
  • exposure metering mode
  • exposure program
  • focus metering mode
  • capture delay (self-timer)
  • focus mode
  • shutter release

Here you can see Entangle, a graphical frontend for libgphoto2, together with a X-Pro2 in action:

Live view support doesn’t seem to work as of now and many other features that the Fujifilm protocol might support as well. A tremendous help for further development would be an open specification for the connection protocol by Fujifilm. As we know Fujifilm follows Fujirumors. The addition of some of the highest voted lenses of the Fujirumor survey in the new Fuji lens roadmap is prove of that. Maybe this will get their attention and get them into contact with the developer.

To test this on your own machine you have to use a master branch build of libgphoto2 or if you use openSUSE Leap 15/Tumbleweed use the graphics repository to receive a newer build:

https://software.opensuse.org//download.html?project=graphics&package=libgphoto2

If you want to help Marcus Meissner to further improve libgphoto2 head to the pixls.us forum and join the discussion.

UPDATE: The official release 2.5.19 is now tagged and can therefore be build by other distributions – check out discuss.pixls.us

Fujifilm EU Deals Started – Big Savings on X-H1, X-T2, X-Pro2, GFX 50S and more

Fujifilm EU Deals

Many European countries are starting to offer rebates on Fujifilm cameras. You can find them for example available in Germany and UK, and they expire September 30.

Check out the details for Germany here and details for UK here.

And make sure to check the official Fujifilm page of your country or contact you local Fujifilm support (or your local store) to ask if the deals run also in your country, since the Fujifilm EU promotion page won’t show them in most cases. If you click for example the German flag, you won’t see any new deals, but if you go to the Fujifilm Germany page directly, you will find them. Only Fujifilm UK has also updated the EU Promo page until now.

Find you deal at: AmazonDE, AmazonUK, WexUK, PCHstore

Huge Deals on Fujifilm X-H1, X-T2, X-Pro2 and X-E3 Coming. Big Sell-Out Before Arrival of Fujifilm X-T3

Fujifilm Deals

Fujifilm is getting ready for the next wave of big deals.

In fact the Polish Fujifilm page here already uploaded the list of gear that will get a huge discount from July 1 to September 30, 2018.

According to the Polish Fujifilm page, you will save between €200 and €300 on the following items:

  • Fujifilm X-H1 body only or with vertical grip
  • Fujifilm X-T2 body only or with XF18-55
  • Fujifilm X-E3 with XF23/2, XF35/2 or XF50/2
  • Fujifilm X-Pro2 with XF23/2, XF35/2 or XF50/2

Of course if Fujifilm Poland launches these deals, we can expect the same deals to be available in many other European countries, too.

And since this is evidently the big sell-out before the arrival of the Fujifilm X-T3 in September, I would not be surprised to see this sale offered also by Fujifilm North America.

But keep in mind one thing: the Fujifilm X-T3 will not have IBIS, so if you want all your (Fujinon or third party) lenses stabilized, then you have to go for the Fujifilm X-H1.

DON’T BE AFRAID to miss the deals. Just follow FR and you can rest assured that I will notify you the very same second that the deals go live via Facebook, RSS-feed and Twitter.

Fujifilm X-T2 Firmware Update 4.01 Released – Rollback to Previous Version. Fujifilm GFX, X-Pro2 and X-H1 Firmware Postponed

Fujifilm X-T2 Firmware Update

The latest major firmware update 4.00 for Fujifilm X-T2 has introduced quite some bugs, and evidently Fujifilm needs a bit more time to fix them all.

Hence, just half a second ago, Fujifilm released Fujifilm X-T2 firmware update 4.01, which basically re-uploads the older bug free firmare ver.3.00 (no slow motion, F-log & Co), as well a public apology (full press text below).

2 days ago we rumored that Fujifilm is working on a bug fix firmware update. Today’s rollback firmware confirms the rumor. Here are the bugs Fujifilm is working to solve:

  1. When RAW files, which were taken by X-T2 (before firmware ver.4.00), are converted in camera (ver.4.00) or by “FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO”, they are not converted properly.
  2. When pressing the shutter button halfway under certain conditions, the live view can flicker.
  3. In rare cases, a hang-up can occur.

Thanks to Fujifilm for quickly delivering this transitional solution and we look forward to re-upload the bug-free Kaizen firmware soon.
