If you are one of those, who thinks Fujifilm is not for Pros (APS-C is crap, MF is too slow), then please stop reading now, since I would like you to keep your sweet illusions ;).
Still sticking around? Well, then here is todays’ story.
After we discovered that the official images of Hollywood’s blockbuster “Dunkirk” were taken with the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and Fujinon XF18-135, fellow FR-reader Sam Zhai (instagram @hermeneuticlens) now spotted Fujifilm cameras on set of Mission Impossible – Fallout.
Fringer just released the Fringer EF-FX Pro II autofocus smart adapter for pre-order.
Main improvements of the 2nd generation of EF-FX Pro include
Redesigned aperture ring for more convenient operation
New MCU (more powerful, more resources for firmware update)
Better light absorbing design
The price is $299 + $25 (worldwide expedited shipping included. tax/duty not included). Fringer will begin to ship it before May 11.
The functions and performance of gen1 and gen2 are the same.
So far only the Fringer EF-FX Pro II is released. The non-Pro version is still available only in its first generation. In future, the functional firmware update for gen1 and gen2 will be released at the same time as long as the resources of gen1 are enough to support that.
Whatever comes, you only have to do one thing: follow FujiRumors to know everything as fast as possible ;).
GFX · X fan meeting “FUJIKINA” is again.
This time, Tokyo’s event space “CROSS DOCK HARUMI” in Harumi will be held, and an event “FUJIKINA 2019 Tokyo” will be held to thoroughly enjoy the GFX X series.
In this event, you can experience the latest models of GFX and X series, talk shows and studio demonstrations by top photographers and creators from inside and outside Japan, gallery exhibition, free quick maintenance service (by reservation only) and GFX and X series. We offer various contents such as free rental service (by reservation only).
In addition, “FUJIKINA 2019 Tokyo” is planning to make a public program to create promotional videos and photos of overseas artists using the GFX / X series as a new program. Don’t miss the chance to see and experience the top professional production sites.
At the Fujikina 2019 there will be touch & try, quick maintenance service, loan Program, photowalks, live talk & studio demos and public filming. You can check out the full program at the dedicated fujikina 2019 page.
Don’t take the trailer too seriously, though. Of course the Fujifilm GFX100 won’t destroy half of the camera universe. It’s just I am super-pumped to see Avengers Endgame, too, and I guess my brain just merged my excitements into the trailer you see above.
And yet, the mirrorless endgame really begins. Camera companies try to find a way to survive in a declining market, but it’s clear that there is no space for all to flourish.
Fujifilm tries to survive by avoiding the full frame mud fight and by dropping medium format beasts and agile hybrid APS-C cameras to the market.
If that will work out or not, only time will tell.
All I know is that I will be here, on May 23, to give you the most epic live blogging ever seen on FujiRumors.
Stick around guys, because this is just the beginning of a long rumor marathon ;).
