As you might know, photographers using Fujifilm cameras creamed off all the top awards at the World Press Photo Awards 2020.
Fujifilm continues to interview those photographers, who snapped all those wonderful images with Fujifilm X and GFX cameras.
- first interview – Alain Shroeder, winner of the World Press Photo overall stories category
- second interview – Luca Locatelli, 1st Prize for environment story in 2020 Word Press Photo Contest
The third interview is with Ricardo García Vilanova, who won the 3rd Prize for General News Singles in 2020 Word Press Photo (in the same category, Fujifilm won also the 1st prize, with Yasuyoshi Chiba grabbing the top winning image with his Fujifilm X-H1).
You can see the video below as well as a summary of the talk.
It looks like June will be a interesting month, when it comes to Firmware updates.
Now we get hear reports that also the X-A7 should get an update, as well as the Fujifilm X-T4 (this one scheduled for the end of June).
I don’t know yet, if other cameras will get an update.
But keep in mind:
If there is one thing that Fujifilm can easily delay at any point in time, it’s firmware updates. If they feel it is not ready for their planed released, they will simply move it back a few weeks.
But what I know surely, is that the very same second Fujifilm Japan releases the firmware, you will read about it on FujiRumors.
Fujifilm just released a new firmware update for Fujifilm X-Pro3.
The firmware update Ver.1.05 from Ver.1.04 incorporates the following issue:
- Fix of minor bugs
You can download X-Pro3 firmware 1.05 here.
We received report (thanks), that Fujifilm will soon release a free firmware update for Fujifilm GFX100, which will add ProRes RAW capabilities to Fujifilm GFX100.
ProRes RAW is a new codec released by Apple, that allows for much smaller video file sizes than before, while retaining the higher quality video data rates and editing capabilities, of the original Uncompressed RAW video.
If the Fujifilm X-T4 will get it too, it’s still unclear. But we know, those things are always harder to achieve with X Trans sensors (such as pixel shift, too, for example).
Speaking of pixel shift, that’s also to come with a firmware update on Fujifilm GFX100, but I am not sure when this will happen. Fujifilm is still working full power on it. It will be released, only when ready.
Looks like the Fujifilm GFX100 will be covered with lots of Kaizen firmware love!
