Fujirumors taking a little rest in the fresh air before the hot announcements on October 18th :)

stay tuned on Fujirumors on October 18th via facebook, twitter and RSS feed

Neil wrote me an email saying that “the PictureCode people have come out with preliminary support for X-Trans sensors in their latest PhotoNinja pre-release 1.20. I had sent them some pics earlier to help and they had some other work done but even with it being preliminary it feels like it’s better than the other raw converters out there.”

Another feedback from Larry: “PictureCode (of Noise Ninja fame) is working on a version of Photo Ninja that will accommodate the Fuji X-Trans cameras.  Even in the pre-release version, they claim fewer problems with the greens.”

Now the final version is available here! If you want, try it out and leave your feedback in the comments.

In the meantime VKphoto made a first comparison (Photo Ninja, LR5, C1 and Iridient Developer): “I found that Photo Ninja’s renders x-trans raw files very similar to Capture One Express and a bit of moire is also visible on the bird’s feathers. Iridient Developer is still the “King of Raw Converters”. It pulls more details with no traces of moire whatsoever.” Check the comparison out here.

enjoy your day

The X-E2 is in the pipeline, but it seems that the latest X-E1+kit lens deal is still a attractive for many photographers. At least if we take a look at one of the biggest online retailers. At the AmazonUS CSC ranking both, the silver (9th) and the black version (6th) are in the top ten, followed by the X-M1 and X-PRO1, still in the top 20.

win an X100S

The contest expires October 3rd so the winner will be announced tomorrow: like the US store pictureline at facebook here, share with your friends and you could win an X100S! Will a Fujirumors reader be the lucky winner? I really hope so… and I’d feature his/her first X100S shots in the next FR-readers zone.

good luck to everybody

Let’s say that this comes from an absolutely trusted source! Fujifilm announces an X-lovers festival and the launch of new X-series cameras on October 18. This confirms the rumors previously shared on Fujirumors about 2 new cameras coming on that day. The trusted Japanese source told me of the X-E2 and a compact camera with a 2/3 X-Trans sensor (XQ1).

Follow Fujirumors on October 18. I’ll live blogging on that day, and one never knows if there will be other surprises ;)

Stay tuned via facebook, twitter and RSS feed

X-deal: save $200 on the X-E1 with XF18-55 now also at AmazonUS

For everyone who celebrates photography“, “the closest thing to perfection“… these are just two of the headlines I remember when the first reviews of the X-E1 hit the web. Since then, a year has passed and the firmware updates brought faster AF, focus peaking and more. Sure, the successor is in the pipeline, but this could be a good opportunity to purchase a camera that has become better and better with time (and thanks to Fuji’s Kaizen business philosophy will become even better). Now here is the latest price drop on the Fuji X-E1 with XF18-55 lens and save $200!

Check the deals out at AmazonUS / BHphoto / Adorama (also exclusive kit deal X-E1+27mm) / Pictureline
