Mission Impossible: Making Professional Work with Fujifilm Cameras :)
Fujifilm’s Mission Impossible
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.
