Who follows Fujurmors on facebook will probably already know it: a source, who shared with us a correct rumor in the past, told me that the TCL-X100 will cost €250 in Europe. This makes it a bit cheaper than the WCL-X100, which, at its launch, cost $300 Euro and now costs €270 at AmazonDE.

For a first look at the TCL-X100 check out Rico’s X-pert corner special here.

In USA, the WCL-X100 cost $400 at the launch (currently $315-$330 at AmazonUS). The rumored price is of $350, as already shared here.

TCL-X100 listed at BHphoto. Still no official price listed.

Fujifilm Instax Share SP-1 Smartphoto Printer

FR-reader Eric send me the link to a review of the little and stylish Smartphone printer. You can read the review here at the-owl:

 “-Shot the wedding all day using my X-T1 and X100S
-During the down time I WiFi’ed (is that a real word?) over an image from the X-T1 to my iPad.  If you don’t have a wifi enabled camera you can of course   simply ingest the card to the device.
-I used Snapseed to edit the image sightly.  A bit of contrast and conversion to black and white.
– I printed on the Instax Share SP-1
– I gave it to the bride and groom as I left
– They cried….said it was wonderful….and showed it to everyone else.
– Boom!  Added value for wedding photographers right there.”

Also Rico fell in love with the Instax Share SP-1. In his TCL-X100 first look here promised an X-pert corner article about this device and said:

“I am not only the proud owner of a Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic (what a name!), I have also just bought an  Instax Share SP-1 printer. I can hardly find the words to tell you how much I enjoy using this device. It doesn’t define image quality in terms of resolution or sharpness, but in terms of character and look. It’s a different ballgame, and Instax is a winner. The cheerful reactions I receive when I am showing tiny Instax prints to “normal folks” are priceless, since everybody seems to know (and love) the good old polaroid. It’s an emotional affair. Luckily, Fujifilm will add direct Instax Share wifi support to wifi-enabled X cameras, beginning with the X-A1 and X-M1, so you won’t have to wirelessly transfer your images from the camera to a smartphone and from there to the battery-powered printer.When I am done with my X-E2 manuscripts, I’ll dedicate an X-Pert Corner to my new-found Instax love affair.”

TIPA awarded Nissin i40 Flash coming soon for Fujifilm X-series!

Share

 photo flash_zps77f87ccc.jpg

Nissindigital announced here that the i40 Flash will soon be available also for the Fujifilm X-series…. well, maybe not really that soon, as some X-shooters over at dpreview said it will come in October.

The Nissin i40 flash (specs&price) is a new great super compact powerful and flexible flash with ergonomics of the Fujifilm EF-X20. It just won the TIPA Award 2014 for the“Best Portable Lighting System”.

“The small (3.35 x 2.4 x 3.35 inches) and lightweight (203g, without battery and soft box) Nissin i40 is available in models dedicated (TTL) to Canon, Nikon, Sony, Four thirds and Fujifilm models, and can cover a lens angle of view from 24-105mm, with additional coverage to 16mm with the supplied diffuser. The Guide Number is 40 at the 105mm setting (meters/ISO 100) and 27 at 35mm. An innovative LED illuminator sits where smaller fill flash modules were in the past, and the light can be used for both still and video recording with 9 steps of output. The i40 offers rear, front curtain and high-speed sync, wireless slave and can be swivelled up to 180 degrees right and left and 90 degrees vertical.”

Thanks again to FR-reader DIS (maker of the ultimate Kaizen firmware post here), for passing me this news.

Hooray! Fujifilm X-T1 body + kit and XF 56mm f/1.2 finally in stock NOW at AmazonUS!

Share

Hooray! The Fujifilm X-T1 body is in stock at AmazonUS here and the X-T1 with 18-55 lens is in stock at AmazonUS here. The Fujifilm X-T1 is still hard to find at the other major online retailers. Both, the kit and the body are still selling like hot cakes at Amazon. At the moment 1st and 3rd at the AmazonUS CSC ranking.

Also the Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 is finally in stock at AmazonUS here (ships from and sold by Amazon). But for how long? Also this one is still out of stock at other stores.

Oh, and please, Fujifilm, I remember how long it take you to deliver the X100S and XF 55-200. You should have learned the lesson: times are over, when almost nobody bought Fuji cameras and lenses. The X-virus is deservedly spreading amongst photographers all over the world and you should organize your production and delivery accordingly to this quickly spreading infection ;-).

In Stock Check

Fuji X-T1: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay Fuji XF 56mm: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay Fuji XF 10-24mm: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay

The kit (limited number of 4) is available at top rated ebayUS reseller kenmorecamera

Let’s take a break from the reviews, the rumors, the X-T1 awards, the new gear, the news and focus on the one thing that, at the end of the story, really matters: the passion, the light, the composition, the fun, the inspiration, the creativity… the image!

So I’m happy to share with you some of the most liked images shared by X-shooters all over the world with Fujirumors. See them on the FR-facebook wall… and of course feel free to share your very best X-shots too.
