Buy Discounted Fujifilm X-T3 and Get FREE Godox V1

The Fujifilm X-T3 is currently $200 off for the body only or with some lenses.

This means you get the X-T3 body for $1,299.

However, Adorama sells the X-T3 for $1,299, and adds a free Flashpoint R2 (rebranded Godox V1 – worth $239) on top of it! This means you get a total saving of $439.

Top Selling Gear in November: Neewer 35mm f/1.2 beats Fujinon XF, Fujifilm X-T3 Claims its Throne Again, Capture One Above all Else

TOP 3 SELLING…

Here is the best selling gear on FujiRumors for November.

Top Accessories

Top Fujifilm Series Cameras

With the Fujifilm X-H1 now widely discontinued, and the X-Pro3 buzz slowly settling down, the Fujifilm X-T3 claims back its throne as the best selling camera.

Top Fujinon X Lenses

The launch of the exclusive X-T3 with 16-80mm bundle with the addition of a special rebate has boosted the 16-80 at the top of the ranking, closely followed by the discounted XF16-55mm f/2.8 and the also discounted XF90mm f/2.

Top Fujifilm GFX Gear

All Fujinon GF lenses (except for GF50mm f/3.5) are now heavily discounted. See the full list of discounted GF lenses here.

Top X Mount Third Party Lenses

The Neewer 35mm F1.2 becomes the most sold lens overall (even better than Fujinon lenses), thanks to a further price reduction that now makes it ridiculously cheap.

The evergreen Samyang 12mm f/2 makes it back in the list.

Top Software

  1. Capture One Pro
  2. Adobe Creative Cloud
  3. Luminar 4

Capture One Pro remains unbeatable, but Adobe Creative Cloud saw a nice revival here on FujiRumors, probably thanks to the black friday sale.

Phase One has released Capture One 20.

Fujifilm X-T3 with XF 56mmF1.2 vs Sony a7iii with Zeiss Batis 85mmF1.8 + Advantage of Shooting f/1.2 on APS-C vs f/1.8 on Full Frame

Fujifilm vs Sony

Sonder Creative and Anete compared the Fujifilm X-T3 with Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 with the Sony a7iii with Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8.

At the end it is a split decision, with Anete preferring the Fujifilm system and Sonder Creative the Sony system.

But I want to highlight one thing, before I leave you to the video and a summary down below.

We know that, in terms of depth of field, f/1.2 on APS-C does not give the same results of f/1.2 on full frame.

In fact, f/1.2 on APS-C is closer to f/1.8 on full frame, and this is why on this comparison you don’t really see any difference in terms of depth of field between the Fuji and the Sony (except for the bokeh quality, which is better on the Fuji.)

The point?

When Sonder Creative exposed properly both images (base ISO, and widest aperture), he noticed that the shutter speed was completely different:

  • FUJIFILM: ISO 160 – f/1.2 – 1/8000
  • SONY: ISO 100 – f/1.8 – 1/3200

He concludes saying that:

one of the advantages of shooting with APS-C, is that you can shoot with a much faster shutter speed compared to full frame

Seen from this perspective, the light gathering capability of f/1.2 on Fujifilm APS-C is and remains f/1.2.

I thought I point this out and let you discuss about it.

Fujifilm to Release Firmware Update for FUJIFILM X-T3

Fujifilm to release firmware update for the FUJIFILM X-T3

Enabling video shooting control from Gimbal / Drone and offering other feature enhancements

November 13, 2019

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) plans to release a series of firmware updates for the FUJIFILM X-T3 (hereinafter “X-T3”), starting in mid-December 2019. The updates reflect requests of additional features and operability improvement, received from users of the X Series of mirrorless digital cameras.

The upcoming update will enable controls for video recording from Gimbal / Drone via USB communications. You can combine the X-T3 with a Gimbal / Drone that supports this function to significantly broaden your shooting options. FUJIFILM is in communication with SZ DJI Technology Col, Ltd.* and ZHIYUN** (listed in the alphabetical order) about their plan to release compatible products. Fujifilm also plans to deploy this function to the FUJIFILM X-T30 and other models. Further firmware updates in the future will bring autofocus enhancement and other improvements to the X-T3.

Main features:

■ Firmware update for the X-T3, due to be released in December 2019
Firmware version: FUJIFILM X-T3(Ver. 3.10)

Gimbal / Drone support***

This firmware adds the following function to complement the current support for still image shooting via USB communications:

  • Starting and ending video recording
  • Adjusting exposure settings (exposure mode, shutter speed, aperture, ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation) for video recording
  • Making manual focus adjustments

■ Firmware update for the X-T3, due to be released in January 2020
Firmware version: FUJIFILM X-T3(Ver. 3.20)

1. Enhanced autofocus

  • Improving the tracking performance of the eye AF frame, making it easier to attain accurate autofocus on the eyes
  • Improving face-detection performance when there are faces of different sizes within the same frame, making it easier to attain accurate autofocus
  • Improving autofocus capability on a foreground subject even when there is a mixture of foreground and background subjects within a frame, causing the foreground subject to go out of focus, e.g. when shooting flowers against a busy background

2. Capability to save up to 9,999 pictures in each folder

Until now, the number of pictures that can be saved in a folder on an SD card was limited to 999. This update will raise the limit by ten times to 9,999 pictures.
