Fujifilm X-E3 with XF 23mm f/2 Combo Marked as Discontinued/Back-Ordered

When Fujifilm launched the Fujifilm X-E3, they made something terribly smart, that I strongly believe contributed to the success of the Fujifilm X-E3: they sold it bundled with the Fujinon XF23mm F2 for the attractive price of $949, basically making you save $250 over the regular price of $1,200.

And for months, this combo kept up selling decently.

But something strange is happening these days.

The Fujifilm X-E3 with XF 23mm F2 combo is starting to get listed as back-ordered or even discontinued all over the world.

BHphoto here and Adorama here listed the black X-E3 with 23/2 as back-ordered, whereas WexUK here is a tiny bit more explicit:

We no longer sell this product and will not be receiving any new stock. Check below for availability of second-hand units.

At the time of this post, you can still find a limited number of black X-E3 with 23/2 at AmazonUS.

So far, it seems only the black X-E3 with 23/2 is back-ordered. The X-E3 black body only as well as the silver X-E3 + 23/2 combo are still available at BHphoto, Adorama, AmazonUS and also WexUK. But I don’t know what will happen once also the silver combo one runs out of stock.

Maybe Fujifilm decided that it’s time to end the nice combo deal.

I will contact sources, and try to figure out what’s going on. Once I get reply, I’ll update this article.

Top 3 Loves and Hates of Shooting Fujifilm X-T1 in 2019 compared to Fujifilm X-E3

It’s summer, which means 2 full months of holidays from my teaching job!

I have already passed 2 weeks with that annoying SonyAlphaRumors guy in beautiful Croatia. :)

However, I have no other travels planed, given that I married in May and must a little bit recover financially now (*).

So, together with my wife we decided to spend most of our summer just hiking on the mountains around my home. And frankly, I do not desire nor need more than this right now.

Sometimes we sleep on a mountain hut and enjoy the sunrises at high altitude (and with a bit of luck also meeting fellow Fujifilm shooters up there).

We might, though, make one short honeymoon city trip, maybe to Paris?

Ok, I hear you, come to the point! Camera comparison, NOW!

Well, since I bought the Fujifilm X-E3, I have basically never touched my trusty Fujifilm X-T1 anymore (which still holds the sceptre for taking my all time favorite image).

My wife kindly invited me to sell it, but the answer I could give her was no other than this one :).

So, to justify the fact that I still own the X-T1, I took it out for a recent mountain hike, put it into my Camslinger bag, and shot again a whole day with it.

It was like rediscovering the Fujifilm X-T1, and here are 3 things I loved and hated about shooting with it again.

Exif Video Resolved DR adds Fujifilm Support for EXIF Metadata Import in DaVinci Resolve

As you might know DaVinci Resolve can’t read the metadata of many DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras. A solution to this problem is now offered by Exif Video Resolved DR.

Exif Video Resolved DR is a plugin for ExifTool, that allows you to import camera EXIF metadata such as ISO, Aperture, Shutter, Lens Type, Gamma, Color Space, Focal Point, etc. to Davinci Resolve, giving you the ability to see a lot more metadata info in your Media Pool with just a few click.

The good news for Fujifilm users is, that on March 14, Exif Video Resolved DR ver. 1.1 added support for Fujifilm X-T30, Fujifilm X-T3, Fujifilm X-H1, Fujifilm X-T2, Fujifilm X-T20, Fujifilm X-E3 and Fujifilm X-A5.

Exif Video Resolved DR is not free, but very affordable. You can get the Fujifilm version for €5 and the version with all cameras supported for €14 (or €20 if you buy Windows and Mac version together). Future updates should be free.

You can check all the details at evrapp.cloud and here is the online instruction manual.
