Iridient Developer 3.3 Adds Fujifilm X-T3, Fujifilm GFX 50R and Fujifilm XF10 Support

Iridient Developer 3.3

The Iridient Developer 3.3 update for macOS was released today with support for the Fujifilm X-T3, Fujifilm GFX50R and Fujifilm XF10.

This update brings optimized support for macOS 10.14 Mojave and includes automatic Dark Mode switching.

This release also fixes a few Fujifilm specific bugs including:

  • improper baseline exposure for the new D RANGE PRIORITY options on the X-H1 (and X-T3)
  • support for the very old S5 Pro and S3 Pro models was broken in a past update, these models are working again

Fujifilm Manager says Fujifilm GFX 50R went Through 10 Different Designs and Fuji GFX50R for Travels

Fujifilm GFX50R

MANAGER INTERVIEW: Fujifilm manager Makoto Oishi said to thephoblographer (video above), that the Fujifilm GFX 50R went through at least 10 different designs.

One idea was to put the hybrid viewfinder into thr Fujufilm GFX50R, but it would have made the Fujifilm GFX50R bigger and heavier as well as parallax issues due to large G-mount.

Fujifilm still struggled with the size, though, especially because of the shutter mechanism and the battery.

So, week after week, they re-designed and re-developed the Fujifilm GFX50R in order to reduce the size.

At the end, they made at least 10 different designs and plastic models, until they reached the desired size.

ON THE FIELD WITH GFX 50R: William Chua brought the Fujifilm GFX50R in western Mongolia. The result is a series of wonderful images, you can check out at williamchua here.

Of course the camera would work great in other kind of photography as well, studio, landcapes etc.. but I think it works best out in the streets, and for general travel photography. Probably not the best for fast action things though. […] Its very addictive to shoot with this camera.

The Fujifilm GFX50R will start shipping November 29. Since a few weeks not, the FujifilmGFX 50R is marked as Nr.1 seller at BHphoto. I guess the attractive Fuji GFX50R bundle deals help to boost the sales at launch.

Fujifilm GFX 50R Street Photography, Kai Wong Hands On and Could the Fujifilm GFX 100 have an X-Trans Sensor?

Fujifilm GFX 50R

William Chua took the Fujifilm GFX 50R out for some street photography in Cologne. You can read the full blog post and see the samples at williamchua.com. Some excerpts:

  • Being a GFX 50s user, he was not too excited about this camera. But after using it for a few days, he has to say he loves it more and more
  • Its a great camera for street photography
  • might not be as comfortable to use with big glass like the GF 250mm
  • in a lot of his sample images, he used face detection, and he’s glad to say it works extremely well

Jonas Rask shares his impressions of the Photokina 2018 in the best way possible: by sharing wonderful images taken with Fujifilm GFX 50R and X100F. Check out his article “When the floor dust settles” at jonasrask here.

Kai Wong was at photokina and shares his walkthrough the various booths. Of course he also checked out the Fujifilm GFX 50R. Jump to minute 5:43 here, to check out the part about Fujifilm.

MediumFormat: First Impressions of the Fujifilm GFX 50R at mediumformat

PhoBlographer writes in his Fujifilm GFX 50R first impressions that the Fujifilm GFX 50R is the camera he’s been waiting for. They would like a 50MP X-Trans version and pay even more for it, and faster glass (such as the rumored GF 80mm F1.4) would also be appreciated. Read it all at phoblographer here.

Spanish: The Spanish site albedomedia (translation) goes hands on with the Fujifilm GFX 50R. They share their impressions as well as some media slides including an overview of Fujifilm’s camera history, which you can see below.

Fujifilm GFX 100 MP X-Trans

ThePhoblographer had a talk with Fujifilm USA manager Justin Stailey, mainly about the Fujifilm GFX 50R, but there was also a question about the Fujfiilm GFX 100.

Phoblographer: Why isn’t the GFX 100MP sensor an X Trans sensor?
Justin: I don’t think we said that it was or was not X-Trans. but…In Medium Format, the Bayer Sensor has proven to provide excellent image quality

So, despite hinting that a Bayer sensor is more likely than an X-Trans sensor, Fuji Manager Justin did not exclude the possibility it could be a 100 Megapixel X-Trans sensor. Read the whole interview at phoblographer.

We remind you that the Fujifilm GFX 100 megapixel camera should offer pixel shift multishot, which would indicated that a Bayer sensor is more likely. Read more here.

Fujifilm Camera History – via albedomedia

 

Fujifilm GFX 50S Upcoming Firmware Update Features Disclosed plus Fuji GFX 50R and GF Lens Details

Fujifilm GFX

Fujifilm is launching the Fujifilm GFX 50R and Fujifilm GFX 100 all over the world and today’s media slides come from China (via camerabeta). The launch event is covered in this article (translation).

The link has been sent to me by FR-reader Sam (instagram hermeneuticlens here).

For the most part they don’t unveil anything new, but there are some little new tidbits, translated for us by FR-reader Sam (thanks).

Fujifilm GFX 50R weight compared to GFX 50S:

  • by using a 2-way tilt screen instead of 3-way, Fujifilm reduces the weight by 35g
  • other 60g over the GFX 50S are saved with the EVF
  • 30g are saved by using lightweight material and optimizing thickness

GF Lenses

  • GF 100-200mm will work with 1.4x teleconverter (effectively 140-280mm)
  • GF 45-100mm not sure if it will work with 1.4x TC (slide does not mention that it will support TC, so it is likely that it won’t.)
  • GF 100-200mm will have internal zoom design (so lens’ length won’t change when zooming. Again, probably not the case for GF45-100mm)
  • GF 50mm F3.5 R will have linear motor

Fujifilm GFX 50S future firmware update:

Not everything is clear what’s written in the slides, but that’s what’s written

  • faster eye sensor reaction time
  • delete RAW and JPG together (that’s what’s written in the slide) – (by FR-readers: when choose to take jpeg+raw mode, so deleting photo will be in-sync)
  • 35mm format crop mode will support GF lenses and FUJINON HC lenses
  • The slide also says “EVF/LCD adds white indicator point(s) – color customization”. FR-readers say “Usually refer to exposure clipping of the white point, i.e. the white Blinky when everything look white, so the color customization mostly refer to the white Blinky color, like what u can set in Adobe Raw or LR”

Camera Remote App / Camera Update

As we reported here already, version 3.2.0 of the camera remote app allows you to update your camera firmware via remote app, provided your camera has bluetooth. The Fujifilm GFX 50R has bluetooth, so it supports this feature.

Size Comparison: Fujifilm GFX 100S vs Sony A7III, Nikon D5, Canon 1DX, Canon EOS R, Nikon Z7, Nikon D850, Fuji GFX 50R

Fujifilm GFX 100

The Fujifilm GFX 100 megapixel camera is big, but how big is compared to other cameras with integrated battery grip, the Nikon D5 and the Canon 1Dx MK II?

I thought I am going to check this out in today’s article.

Just for fun, I did throw in the brand new Fujifilm GFX 50R in the comparison.

The size is about the same of the Nikon D5 and Canon 1Dx MK II, but consider that the Fujifilm GFX 100S has a 1.7x larger sensor in it as well as in body image stabilization (IBIS), and no course no mirror.

Seen from the top (images below), the Fujifilm GFX 100S much more protruding viewfinder makes it thicker overall. I remind you, that you can remove the viewfinder on the Fujifilm GFX 100S. Might be handy if you want to store it in the bag, since it makes the camera sensibly sleeker.

At the very bottom you can see the real life size comparison between the Fujifilm GFX 100S, GFX 50S and GFX 50R, that I made at during my stay at Photokina. You can see that, with battery grip attached, the Fujifilm GFX 50S is actually slightly bigger than the Fujifilm GFX 100 megapixel.

I also added a size comparison between the Fujifilm GFX 100 megapixel versus the Sony A7III, Canon EOS R, Nikon Z7 and Nikon D850, but those cameras do not have an integrated battery grip.
