FUJIFILM Releases X-Pro2 Kaizen Firmware Update ver. 4.00 + New Features Guide Manual

Kaizen X-Pro2 Firmware

Ho, ho, ho… :)

Fujifilm just released a new Firmware update for the Fujifilm X-Pro2 (ver.4.00), and it’s well worth to be called a “Kaizen” update.

It adds several features to the X-Pro2, such as 4K video, new AF-tracking, tethered shooting, highglight blinkies, RGB histogram & more. Quite a step up for the 2 years old X-Pro2… and of course it comes for free for all X-Pro2 owners.

And don’t forget to join our Fujifilm X-Pro facebook group ;)

Profoto Announces Support for More Fujifilm Cameras in Addition to GFX 50S, X-T2, X-Pro2 and X100F

Profoto Fujifilm Support

Back on November 18, we told you that Profoto will start shipping their Air Remote TTL-F for Fujifilm on December 18. Well, Profoto actually started shipping it even earlier, as we reported here.

You can pre-order the Air Remote TTL-F at BHphoto, AmazonUS and Adorama.

Currently the Profoto Air Remote TTL-F supports Fujifilm GFX 50S, X-T2, X-Pro2 and X100F, but on their official page here, they say:

Other relevant cameras will be made compatible in the future through camera firmware upgrades by Fujifilm.”

I hope this means support also for older Fujifilm X-Trans cameras like the Fujifilm X-T1.

Thanks for the link Andrew ;)

Sure, the Fujifilm X-H1 is just around the corner, and it will be Fuji’s best hybrid video/stills camera. We have rumored the complete 4K specs, we have told you about the internal F-log, the IBIS, we gave you extremely accurate sketches that show you the camera and a lot more.

But fact is, that, already today, Fujifilm cameras are very appreciated for video. So in today’s mixed zone I will include a little dedicated “video” section.

But there is much more… hope you will find some good read amongst it..

and enjoy your weekend :)

“Mr. Leica” Thorsten Overgaard Buys a Fujifilm X-Pro2… and he Likes it A Lot! (miXed zone)

Mr. Leica gets a Fuji

So, if even “Mr. Leica” Thorsten Overgaard decided to grab a Fuji (the X-Pro2), then we now have all the right to say that Fuji is indeed the new Leica :) . A full review of the camera will come after longer testings, but here are Thor’s first impressions.

  • he likes its simplicity (not many buttons) and it brings him back to when he started photography
  • in many ways it feels natural in the hands
  • big compliments to the Fuji manual :)
  • In natural light the skin tones look great and all colors look pretty precise
  • With artificial light in the evening the blue and orange colors are a little bit too strong, but you can get away from auto White balance, but that’s a problem for all cameras to get colors 100% right in such situations
  • he really likes the X-Pro2, and it’s from now on going to travel with with him in a bag with many other Leica gear

New Meike Hand Grips for Fujifilm X-T2, X-T1 and X-Pro2

Meike has introduced new hand grips for X-T2, X-T1 and X-Pro2

Meike X-T2G hand grip for X-T2 improves the grip on the camera and reduces the chances of camera shake, especially when using heavy, large aperture lenses. Can be used as a quick release with compatible tripods. This metal grip can be left in place when using a tripod and enables users to change the battery and SD card without having to remove the grip from the body.

The future of the Deals

I can hear you say: they are not that great like deals in the past.

But guys, we better get used to it. A few years ago, hardly anyone owned Fujifilm X, and Fuji had to offer terrific deals to “convince” people to buy into the X system. But now, that Fuji X has become popular, there is simply no real need to launch such agressive deals anymore.

Hence, deals on X-system have become more rare, and when they come, like now, they will be less amazing as in the past.

On the other hand, GFX deals are now much better.

There are updates also for the XF 18-55 and XF 10-24

  • 1.The phenomenon is fixed that in rare cases, a focal length could be displayed wrongly and/or shaking could be seen in a peripheral part of images even if a focal length and a focus are fixed.

Tips for Updating your Firmware

Hollywoods’ Dunkirk Movie Official Photos Taken with Fujifilm X-Pro2 and XF 18-135!

Many of you have probably already heard about (and maybe even seen) Christopher Nolan’s latest blockbuster, Dunkirk (trailer here). [Note: C. Nolan also made Inception, The Dark Knight & more]

Well, if you search for “Dunkirk” on the web, you will probably be redirected to sites like comingsoon.net, where you can see some images (including behind the scenes images) of the movie as well as the trailer.

The images on the set were taken by Melinda Sue Gordon… with… the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and the Fujinon XF 18-135 (at least some of them)… as you can see below.

So yes… the APS-C X-Pro2 and the XF18-135 superzoom were used on the set of one of the biggest movies of the year… and its images were used all over the globe to promote the movie :) !

I own the Fujinon XF 18-135… and I always thought it’s kind of awesome for a superzoom :)

It’s nothing new, that Hollywood loves Fujifilm cameras. The X100S was the travel camera of Hector, in the Movie ““Hector’s Search for Happiness” (which I saw in the airplane, when flying back from Cambodia) and the Fuji X-Pro1 was used in the Movie “The Neon Demon” by Nicolas Winding Refn. X-series cameras are also used in TV series like Parenthood TV, The Last Ship and by lots of celebrities.

Full Overview of X-series cameras spotted in Movies or used by celebrities here.
