Fujifilm X/GFX Firmware Fixes macOS SD-Card Bug and Do You Prefer to Update Your Gear via SD-Card or Camera Remote App?

As we reported earlier today, Fujifilm has issued a firmware update for six X/GFX cameras. It fixed the issue we reported about in early February here.

You can read all the details and get the download links in this article.

And here comes my curiosity: I recently started using the Camera Remote App to update my cameras, and I find it so comfortable, that I was wondering if anyone else is using it. Hence, down below is a little survey where you can tell us if you use the App or go old-style via SD-card.

Top 10 Fujifilm X Camera Flops and 10 Errors Fujifilm Should Avoid in Future

Top of the Flops

We did talk about the top 10 most important cameras of Fujifilm in the last 10 years.

But not all was successful that Fujifilm did.

So why did some cameras fail?  Bad timing? Bad specs? Too strong competition? Killed by Kaizen? Complicated usability?

Let’s look into it today, because knowing the errors of the past, will help to avoid to make the same errors in future.

Let’s start!

Fujinon GF35-70mmF4.5-5.6 and Fujifilm X-T3WW in Stock Now

The Fujinon GF35-70mmF4.5-5.6 as well as the Fujifilm X-T3 (WW) are now in stock pretty much everywhere.

The Fujinon GF35-70mmF4.5-5.6 has received great reviews so far and it is the most affordable lens in the G mount lineup along with this lens. It’s also the most compact and light G mount zoom lens with less then half the weight of my Fujinon GF32-64mmF4.

The Fujifilm X-T3 WW (WorldWide) is an X-T3 without charger. By removing the charger and simplifying the shipping progress into different countries, Fujifilm is able to save some money. Savings, that Fujifilm passes to us customers by making it a terrific deal to buy.

Fujifilm X-T3 (Silver) Marked as Discontinued: Let me Explain What’s Going on!

There is a bit of confusion regarding the Fujifilm X-T3, as the silver X-T3 is marked as discontinued at BHphoto.

So let’s say two things first:

Now, many would have expected the Fujifilm X-T3 to be quickly discontinued after the launch of the Fujifilm X-T4, but so it wasn’t. The X-T3 remained a pretty successful camera for Fujifilm also after the launch of the X-T4.

What Fujifilm did, though, was to rationalize production a bit. So they reserved most of the bundle options for the X-T4 and few only for the X-T3 (as we reported here).

Also, recently, in order to simplify sales, Fujifilm removed the battery charger from the box and called it the X-T3 WW (where “WW” stands for worldwide). Different market would require different plugs, some markets even banned chargers due to environmental issues.

This move saves Fujifilm time and money and the savings tumbled down to us customers making it even more affordable than the “normal” X-T3 when discounted.

And in fact, just as of now, you can pre-order the Fujifilm X-T3 WW, which will start shipping on January 13.

But here is the thing:

In order to rationalize and simplify as much as possible (and hence make the X-T3 as affordable as possible), Fujifilm offers the X-T3 WW only in black (you can’t pre-order it in silver as it doesn’t exist).

Conclusion: the Fujifilm X-T3 is not discontinued. In fact you can pre-order it right now and get it shipped in a few days. Only the silver X-T3 seems to be no longer in production, not even in its X-T3 WW variation. But the black X-T3 is here to stay for still quite a while, don’t worry.

But you can still find some silver X-T3 samples around, for example AmazonUS has a few left here and Adorama is seeling some bundled with a lens.
