Fotodiox PRO Pronto Adapter Firmware Update Available

We talked about the Fotodiox Pro Pronto adapter last year, an adapter that adds autofocus to manual focus lenses (you can see which mounts it covers via double adapting here).

The Fotodiox PRONTO autofocus adapter for Fujifilm cameras just received firmware update v1.13.

  • Fix to ensure the adapter retracts properly when the camera is shut down.
  • Few minor bug fixes.

The latest firmware is now available for download here.

POLL: Which Fujifilm System Do You Own?

The Fujifilm team in Japan paid me a few hundreds of bucks to conduct a marketing research among their largest online community, the FujiRumors fellowship, aimed to investigate how many of you actually shoot X series or GFX series.

Just kidding :)

I’ve never received nor will ever receive a single penny from Fujifilm, so rest assured that FujiRumors is and will remain a space 100% independent from Fujifilm.

The true reason for the survey today, is just to satisfy a very personal curiosity.

I wondered how many of you guys own X series cameras and how many own GFX. Or maybe you chose to do it like me, and just own both system (I am waiting for my GFX100S to come). Some might even shoot Fuji + another brand. Whatever it is, feel free to vote the survey down below.

Because I have the impression things might have changed quite a bit compared to January 2019, when I made a similar survey and it turned out that only 3% of FR-readers actually owned a GFX camera.

But maybe I am wrong with my impression. The survey below will show that.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you pre-ordered the GFX100S as your first GFX camera, and just did not get it shipped yet, you can drop your vote as GFX owner.

I currently own the following systems.... (NOTE: GFX100S pre-orders qualify as "GFX Owner")

Fringer EX-FX (Pro) II Smart Autofocus Adapter Firmware 1.90 Released

Fringer has released firmware 1.80 for the Fringer EF-FX Pro II and Fringer EF-FX II smart autofocus adapters.

Fringer EX-FX (Pro) II – Version 1.90

  1. Added following lenses to the tested and optimized lens list:
    – EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM
    EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM + 1.4X
    EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM + 2X
    EF 70-210/3.5-4.5 USM
  2. Fixed PDAF issues for some lens of the following models: Lens didn’t get recognized by the adapter due to different lens firmware version.
    Sigma 24-105/4 ART
  3. Fixed a compatibility issue with X-T3 firmware 4.0: under certain circumstances, contrast AF may fail. This issue may also affect other cameras like X-T4 and X-S10.
  4. Fixed camera freeze issue on cameras equipped with X-Trans IV CMOS. When
    – In bright environment,
    – Adapting telephoto, ultra-fast or macro lenses,
    – Aperture is NOT wide open,
    – Subject is far away from current focus point and is so blur that phase detection doesn’t work,

Auto focus may fail. Sometimes, especially when using AF-ON button or touch screen to AF, it may freeze the camera. Even the power switch doesn’t work. This problem has been fixed. Affected cameras include X-T3 (firmware 2.0 or later), X-T30, X-T4, X-Pro3, X-S10.

As the bug fixes are important, upgrading is highly suggested.
