This update also includes a bug fix for Fujifilm RAF automatic lens chromatic aberration corrections that could cause some color fringing along one or more edges of the image, often the bottom or left, with some camera/lens combinations. This update brings a few other general improvements and bug fixes as well to Iridient Developer.

It’s Ending

These are the last days to save 28% on Capture One 22 pre-upgrades (20% discount offered by Capture One plus additional 10% with code FUJIRUMORS)..

Capture One told me that this will be their best upgrade deal and no better deals will be offered in future.

The deal is available only for existing perpetual license holders (those on Capture One pro or branded 21 and older).

I remind you that Capture One 22 will, among the others, bring two new and long awaited features:

DPRTV Fujifilm X-T30II vs X-S10 Comparison

DPRTV has always loved the Fujifilm X-T30. But then the Fujifilm X-S10 came along with some significant upgrades (such as IBIS). Can the new X-T30II close the gap again? Here is what DPRTV has to say about it:

  • X-T30II very similar to X-T30 but also some important upgrades
  • outside of camera is identical
  • display on the back is better on X-T30II has higher resolution
  • X-T30II has better RAM, hence has better buffer. In fact, here is how many shots you can take before it starts to slow down:
    X-T30 lossless compressed RAW at 8fps: 18 shots before slowing down
    X-T30II lossless compressed RAW at 8fps: 23 shots before slowing down
    X-T30II lossless compressed RAW at 5fps: 23 shots before slowing down
    X-T30II lossless compressed RAW at 8fps: 46 shots before slowing down
  • X-T30II has new AF tracking of X-T4 with good hitrate. So better AF than X-T30
  • X-T30 has all the latest film simulations available for X series
  • X-T30II has F-Log assist (X-T30 has only F-Log)
  • X-T30II has 1080p at 240fps (but pretty soft and not great quality)
  • X-T30II brings lots of fairly small upgrades
  • Fujifilm X-S10 bold departure from classic design strategy
  • X-S10 and X-T30II are similar in size. X-S10 has a bigger grip, which lots of people like
  • X-T30II has better rear screen over X-S10, however, the X-S10 screen does fully articulate
  • max 8 fps for both cameras. X-T30II has better buffer hence can shoot longer bursts than X-S10 (which performs like X-T30)
  • X-T30 still has that old 2.5mm jack, which means you’ll need an adapter to attach your microphone. For headphones, you have to use the USB adapter
  • X-S10 has a 3.5mm mic jack (hence no adapter needed). For headphones still use USB adapter
  • Overheating at 4K/24p 200mbps:
    X-S10 overheats at 44:10 minutes
    X-T30II overheats at 28:18 minutes
    Way longer video shooting with X-S10
  • X-S10 has IBIS, X-T30II has not
  • X-S10 is only $100 more expensive
  • X-T30II has better screen and buffer
  • it comes down to the styling and your preferences
  • Chris prefers the X-S10
