Iridient Developer 2.4 update released

Brian just released the Iridient Developer 2.4 update today and it can be downloaded here.

This release includes some major new features to ease use as an external editor with photo management tools such as Lightroom and Aperture. A few Fujifilm specific improvements too including automatic lens corrections for some of the older compact models like the F500EXR, plus improved camera white balance presets for the X-Trans cameras (daylight, tungsten, fluorescent, etc) using embedded RAF file metadata and automatic support for alternate aspect ratio (16:9 and 1:1) options for the X cameras and some other models as well.

Yesterday, a facebook follower shared the image you can see at the top in this facebook post. He asked me some information about the lens. I told him that the XF 18-135 (the first weather sealed lens in the Fuji lens line-up) could come in June and asked him what’s the source of the image.

I obviously made immediately a screenshot of the leaked image. So, although the follower deleted the image just a minute after he posted it, I was fast enough to copy it for you.

The image shows the size of the XF18-135 f/3.6-5.6 compared to the [shoplink 20414]XF 10-24[/shoplink].

And here is the still unofficial roadmap of Fujifilm

X-E2 initial impressions and thoughts by Randall Cipriano

After his EVF comaparison X-E1 vs X-E2 here (where Randall shows us the amazing, lag-free performance of the X-E2’s EVF), now he also shared his initial impressions and thoughts about the X-E2 on his blog here.

“I will reserve any comments about image quality till after I run it through a proper shoot but all-in-all, I’m happy and welcome all the improvements implemented on the X-E2. Physically, it looks like the same camera, but only after using it will you realize the differences and improvements are significant.”
