Viltrox EF-FX2

The Viltrox EF-FX2 AF Smart Adapter focal reducer is a welcome addition to the other “speedboosters” available for Fujifilm X, the Metabones Speedbooster and the Kipon Baveyes EF-FX AF 0.7x.

The reviewes so far are very positive, and make it look like a good option.

FujiRumors Reaches 1,000 Youtube Subscribers and Celebrates by Sharing 10 “Hidden” Private Videos on My Birthday

FujiRumors Youtube Channel

I have no idea how this happened, since I basically ignore it, but the FujiRumors youtube channel has reached 1,000 subscribers!

In order to celebrate the 1,000 subscribers mark, I have decided to share a few “hidden” videos that I have uploaded without ever thinking to share them publicly. But today it’s my birthday, so what the heck, I share them :).

So, if for some reason you would like to see me jumping from a 45 feet rock in Santo Domingo, travelling Myanmar on a (scary) train, playing football with friends, walking in my mountians and other things I do in my life, then check out the videos below.

The videos are still and will remain “not listed“, since I do not want to Spam subscribers with personal stuff. I will publish (rarely) only photography related videos, such as real-time coverage from photography fairs.

And once I reach 100,000 subscribers (should be easy, right?) I will start the vlogging more seriously and give you a live stream from my home :).

take care guys,

Fujifilm X-T3: New Features Guide for Firmware 3.00

Fujifilm X-T3 New Features Guide

If I should judge from the amount of emails I have received in the last days, I’d say that you guys were more impatiently waiting for Fujifilm X-T3 firmware 3.00 rather than for Game of Thrones season 8 ;).

I promised you I will be ready to inform you 0.01 seconds after the firmware is published, and so I did.

And as usual, when a major firmware is released, Fujifilm has to update its Owners manual. So download now the Fujifilm X-T3: New Features Guide for Firmware 3.00 (PDF).

Some already asked for animal eye tracking, which is offered by Sony. Well, I remind you that this forgotten Fujifilm digital camera offered pet detection almost 10 years ago, so let’s hope Fujifilm will bring it to the Fujifilm X and GFX series, too.

The improvements in AF are applicable to both still photos and video recording.

  5. Focus frame when EYE DETECTION SETTING
    When using EYE DETECTION SETTING, only focus frame on eye is displayed.
  6. Improvement of AF/AE area tracking when using EVF
    When using the EVF, tracking function for AF/AE area movement by touch screen is improved.
  7. Push function of the Focus stick when INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING
    The push function is disabled when INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING.
  8. FLICKER REDUCTION function
    The options are changed from ON/OFF to ALL FRAMES/FIRST FRAME/OFF. And when choosing FIRST FRAME, the speed of CH countinuous shooting is imroved.
