This is How Fujifilm Welcomes Xiaomi Mi Note 10 108 Megapixel Samsung/Fujifilm ISOcell Sensor

in the green box: the original image shared by Fujifilm China

Fujifilm China has apparently given a warm welcome to the 100 megapixel Xiaomi CC9 Pro (or Xiaomi Mi Note 10), which features a 108 megapixel camera.

[google translated] 100 million pixels: Welcome new members!

And in the comments Fujifilm China say:

Encourage Xiaomi’s innovation for mobile phones

The image shared at the official Fujifilm China weibo page, shows a little box inside the massive Fujifilm GFX100 sensor, which has the size of the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 sensor.

Now why should Fujifilm do this? Here a few options:

  1. sympathy: they simply welcome another 100 megapixel camera
  2. mockery: they make fun out of of the small sensor (that would be such a bad taste)
  3. conspiracy: they hint to some secret future Fujifilm development
  4. proudly: Fujifilm co-develops the sensor inside the Xiamo Mi Note 10
  5. randomly: that little box and the whole post of Fujifilm mean nothing

I think we can agree that there is nothing more fun than a conspiracy theory, so I will focus on that one :).

Fujifilm GFX Survives Fifteen Foot Fall, Fujinon GF 50mm f/3.5 Reviews, Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1.4 Meets GFX and More

Fujifilm GFX

So, while we wait for Fujifilm to finally be able to ship all Fujifilm GFX100 pre-orders, we dedicate a roundup to the super discounted Fujifilm GFX50S and Fujifilm GFX 50R.

And despite the frankly superior specs of the Fujifilm GFX100, still today, if I should pick one, I’d go all in with the Fujifilm GFX50R. That one, combined with the Fujinon GF50mm f/3.5, and I have a powerhouse version of my much beloved Fujifilm X-E3 with XF27mm (+beer  ;) ) combo.

Believe me, there isn’t a day, that I am not tempted to get it. But for me, making this step, would mean go all in with the GFX system (and leaving the X system), and given the great results I get with my X gear, I am not yet ready for such a big jump (and investment).

Cracking the X-Pro3 Classic Negative Film Simulation Look on Your X-T2 (and other Fuji Cameras)

The ONE trick Fuji doesn’t want you to know.

Cracking the Classic Negative look

Hardly any other company puts that much effort in creating really beautiful and useful color profiles like Fujifilm.

Fujifilm calls them “film simulations”: inspired by the look of old film stock, they try to bring some of that magic into the digital era.

In fact, Minami-San, the Fujifilm employee responsible for colors back in the film days, is still today working at Fujifilm and in charge of the digital film simulation development. You can see his story here.

One more nice thing: Fujifilm film simulation can be fine tuned ad libitum:

  • read here – This Guy Fine Tuned his Fujifilm Film Simulation Settings Inspired by the Work of Great Film Photographers. See “Chrome Eggleston” & More
  • read here – Fujifilm X-Pro3 Development Story: Classic Negative Film Simulation – Learning from Film

And now we come to the Fujifilm X-Pro3.

  • X-Pro3 offers more in camera editing options than any other Fuji camera
  • X-Pro3 offers a new film simulation called Classic Negative (inspired by Superia)

Of course we all demand for this firmware update, which should give us Classic Negative and other X-Pro3 goodness also these Fuji X/GFX cameras.

But some can’t manage their impatience, and tried to emulate the Classic Negative film simulation look, as it’s the case of Jean-Pascal Remon.

How to get the Fuji Classic Negative Look to your X-Pro2/X-T2
And save yourself to buy a new camera.

From what I’ve seen, the new Fuji Classic Negative film simulation is generous on the blue and green level, while remaining somewhat warm and keeping a low contrast.

Here is how to achieve this look.

Fujifilm X-Pro3 Development Story: Classic Negative Film Simulation – Learning from Film

Classic Negative

Fujifilm has just published their Classic Negative Film Simulation development story. You can read it all down below.

We remind you that FujiRumors already told you Fujifilm will update these older Fujifilm cameras with Classic Negative film simulation, too. Also, already now, Capture One Pro 12 offers Classic Negative film simulation profile.

Get Classic Negative Film Simulation on Fujifilm X-T3 and X-T30 with Capture One Pro 12

Fellow X shooters and FR readers,

This weekend I am extremely busy, as I meet a good friend from abroad I don’t see as often as I would like, so I will be rather fast in my articles.

It’s like one of those weekends, where I focus more on Cabernet, and less on Internet ;).

I feel I needed to make this disclaimer, because I have been told that the latest Capture One Pro 12 (v. 12..14) now allows to select “Classic Negative” film simulation for Fujifilm X-T3 and X-T30 files. Readers tested it on GFX and X-H1 files, and it did not work, though.

Sadly I can not verify that, as I had no time to upgrade my C1 version, but I got multiple reports about that. Once I have time, I will see if the X-E3 (older sensor/processor) also gets Classic Negative options, but I doubt, as the X-H1 files don’t get the Classic Negative option. It might work only with X-Trans 4 / X Processor 4 cameras.

If anyone tests this, feel free to drop a comment down below.

What we all are waiting for, though, is this nice Kaizen firmware update, which should bring Classic Negative to newer Fujifilm cameras.

P.S.: for my weekend trip with my friend, her husband, and my wife, guess what I carry around? Nothing but my X-E3 with 27mm… the perfect combo!

Fujifilm X-Pro3 Full Specs Leaked and Comparison with X-Pro2 and X-T3

Fujifilm X-Pro3 vs X-Pro2 vs X-T3

After the full leaked press release yesterday, now nokishita leaked the full X-Pro3 specs.

Given that we have basically the full specs, I now decided to extend our initial X-Pro3 vs X-Pro2 comparison, and include the X-T3 as well.

You find it all down below!

KEEP IN MIND that, as FujiRumors exclusively rumored here, the Fujiiflm X-T3 might get a huge firmware update that brings it on par with X-Pro3.

Fujifilm X-Pro3: First Step into Fuji’s 3 Year Computational Photography Masterplan

AI is Coming

Well, the Fujifilm X-Pro3 leaked massively here, and we compared the specs to the X-Pro2 here.

As FujiRumors rumored already in the months and weeks before, there is a lot happening on the firmware front, and we already told you to expect to get a major Kaizen firmware update also for the following camera X/GFX models.

It’s also no surprise, that the Fujifilm X-Pro3 will introduce first big steps into what is called “computational photography”, for example with the new HDR function:

the HDR shooting function combines multiple continuously shot images of different exposure levels to expand the dynamic range. The tool, designed to recreate the vast dynamic range of light conditions that exist in nature, produces natural tones without causing exaggerated amplification of colour tones.

Why is it no surprise?

Well, I remind you how back in April 2019, Fujifilm manager Toshihisa Iida said in this interview:

In 3 years, AI (artificial intelligence or computational photography) will become important part of photography

And if you are scared our cameras will turn into smartphones taking over all the control from your photography, then I’d like to reassure you, as Toshihisa Iida also said:

AI will not manage or control, but help photographers to take better images in an easier way

So, Fujifilm wants to offer plenty of computational photography features within 2022 in their cameras, and the Fujifilm X-Pro3 marks the start.

Is the right way to go? Do you like it? Let us know in the survey and the comments down below.

Gear Talk Detox with These Fujifilm Images Roundup

Gear Talk Detox

Talking gear is nice and good, but using our gear is even more amazing ;).

I did try to remind this to myself, and hence, in the last few weeks, I have grabbed my X-E3 as often as I could and moved my a$$ up to the highest peaks, no matter how the weather was, to try to capture the beauty of my home.

And in fact, the shot I am most proud of lately, happened on such a cloudy day, that I was afraid my 4+ hours hike would be photographically speaking useless.

But despite the thick fog, I snapped my probably favorite image of this fall so far.

So I hope the images below inspire you to get out and shoot, too. The one shot you’ll be so happy with could just be out there, waiting for you.

And it doesn’t really matter, if all images shared down below come from our extremely prolific GFX user group. I just took them from the GFX group, because the last two image roundups all came from our explosive X-T group.
