Fujifilm X-T2 Bug Fix Firmware Coming

Fujifilm X-T2 Bug Fix Firmware

The Fujifilm X-T2 recently got a major 4.00 firmware udpate, that introduced lots of new features.

However, shortly after the release, the FujiRumors community started reporting about several bugs in dedicated “Bug Report” articles here on FujiRumors.

As you know, Fujifilm reads us with great care, and they took note of the different bug reports you guys made.

Now I hear from trusted sources, that they are working on a bug fix firmware.

Also, it has been reported to me (thanks), that some posts on social media seem to be confident this bug fix will come within a week. All I can say at this stage is that I am not sure about it. The firmware will be out only when all bugs are fixed, and not before. It might happen in a week, or even later. I honestly think not even Fujifilm knows at this stage when exactly this will happen.

Simply stay tuned on FujiRumors, and I will let you know in the very same second the firmware is available for download.

have a GREAT Day,

Fujifilm Reads You

As you know, FujiRumors is Fujifilm’s reference website for Fuji X and GFX online customer feedback  (I mean, even Fujifilm’s top manager Toshihisa Iida “loves” FujiRumors, not to talk that Fujifilm also uses our polls in private meetings ;) ).

This is no surprise, since here on FR, for example, we can collect 10,000 poll votes in just 3 days and in 2017 we had a total of 45,261 comments (124 comments a day).

Your massive feedback simply can’t be ignored by Fujifilm.

So thanks to every single one of you, who reads FR, votes the polls and comments.

Feel free to keep it up :)

Discovering Fujifilm in 2018

Here on FujiRumors we talk about Fujifilm X and GFX gear every day since over 6 years now.

Those, who follow FujiRumors regularly, will also know in which direction Fujifilm is going, may it be the Fujifilm X-T3, the GFX 50R, the X-T100, the GFX 100S… and there is more to come… you definitely want to follow us also on Facebook, RSS-feed and Twitter if you want to stay in the loop ;) .

So, in our eyes, talking about the Fujifilm X100F might seem old news.

But believe it or not, despite Fujifilm being every year more successful, X-shooters are still a relatively small niche in the photography world and many people don’t even know that Fujifilm makes highly sophisticated mirrorless cameras.

So today I’d like to highlight 2 huge youtubers (with well over a million subscribers), who recently stumbled upon the Fujifilm X system, more specifically the (now discounted) Fujifilm X100F.

The enthusiasm they show, when they talk about their “discovery” of the Fujifilm X system, reminds me a lot to my own excitement, when, after migrating from Canon to Sony, from Olympus to Panasonic, I finally discovered the Fuji X system.

I can without a doubt say that the X-system, although not perfect for everybody, was perfect for me. Why? Because I had so much fun shooting with it like never before. A fun that never stopped until today.

It’s No Coincidence

It’s no coincidence, that photographers, who have a long story with Canon or Nikon (like the two youtubers today), start their Fuji X adventure with an X100 line camera.

In fact, the X100F serves also this purpose.

It’s a compact, fixed lens, high quality and feature packed camera (hybrid viewfinder, build in ND-filters, film simulations and more), that is also ment to serve as a second camera for those photographers, who have already invested heavily into other systems, and do not want to buy into a completely new one.

So to speak, the Fujifilm X100F could be seen also as the “gateaway drug” into the X world.

CaNikon shooters get it as a small second camera for everyday use, start to have fun with it, enjoy the film simulations, the good old classic controls, get familiar with the X cameras, and at some point might be tempted to ditch their old system and switch to interchangeable Fujifilm X cameras… maybe a story that might sound familiar to some of you guys ;) .
