Fringer EF/FX Smart Adapters Firmware ver 2.60 Support for Sigma Lenses on Fujifilm X Cameras Added and Improved

Fringer just released Fringer EF-FX Pro and EF-FX adapters’ new firmware ver. 2.60.

It mainly addresses the following issues.

Version 2.60

  1. Fixed PDAF issues for some of the following lens models: Lens didn’t get recognized by the adapter after upgrading lens firmware to version 2.0.
    – Sigma 150-600/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports/Contemporary
  2. Bug fixed: Some telephoto lenses, e.g. EF200/2.8L II, don’t work properly with 2X TC. When setting shutter speed to ‘A’, LCD or viewfinder is always too dark or too bright, so that it’s hard to see the object being shot.
  3. Added following lenses to the tested and optimized lens list:
    Sigma 105/1.4 DG HSM Art
    Sigma 120-300/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports
    Sigma 120-300/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports + 1.4X
    Sigma 120-300/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports + 2X
    Sigma 18-200/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM Contemporary
    Sigma 17-70/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM Contemporary
    EF 135/2L + 1.4X
    EF 135/2L + 2X

Be noted: Before upgrading to V2.60, make sure current firmware version is V2.x. If it’s V1.x, please upgrade to V2.10 first.

Fringer EF-FX AF Adapter Eye Tracking tested on Fujifilm X-T3 with Canon 600mm F4 and Sigma 18-35mm F1.8

Fringer EF-FX AF

Fringer just upload a video on his youtube channel (video above), showing the Face/Eye detection tracking using the Fujifilm X-T3 with Canon EF600/4L II adapted via Fringer EF-FX AF Autofocus smart adapter with firwmare ver. 2.50.

As you can see, the eye/face AF works really very well in his video demo. He writes:

To my surprise it works incredibly well on X-T3 when doing AF-C tracking. I set X-T3 to AF-C mode, CH (11 fps) and Face/Eye detection on. The focusing object is a person riding a electric motorcycle moving fast towards the camera.

30 pictures were taken in less than 3 seconds. The focus areas were cropped at 100% scale and combined to the following picture

“I also tested video mode Face/Eye tracking. Thanks to the great improvements of PDAF performance and coverage of X-Trans IV CMOS, both still and video mode works very well.

The new firmware ver 2.50 for Fringer EF-FX AF smart adapters will be out soon, and it will add support for Canon EF600/4L II.
