[UPDATE] Godox Update: More Details about Fujifilm TTL/HSS Support (Including New X2 Trigger for Fujifilm in July)

Godox Fujifilm Support

For an entire month, the news was somewhere hidden on CheetahStand facebook page, until an attentive FR-reader (thanks) finally spotted it and shared it with us here. The news is now spreading quickly on the web, as usual ;) .

Anyway, since we broke the news today that Godox is working on Fujifilm support, something is moving, and more details just appeard on the web, always via CheetahStand here:

Olympus and Panasonic TTL/HSS remote for Cheetah X series light come out first…I will test on May….Fuji coming right after that….Stay tuned

Also FR-sources (thanks) quickly dropped me emails. Here is what I got from them:

  • The Godox X1 for Fujifilm will be released at the end of April, or beginning of May (HSS and TTL)
  • The new X2 trigger with Fujifilm support will be released in July

** UPDATE ** : More tidbits from the Cheetah page here:

Godox will make TT350 first. I will test it…..If good move to V860X….If good make X1 and same time all X series will accept Olympus/Panasonic by firmware update….Same on Fuji

The original Roadmap shared earlier today:

Godox Plan:
TT350 Olympus and Fuji April-May 2017.
If TT350 is good, Move to 685 and V860II.
If all is good move to X1 Fuji and X1 Olympus.
The same time firmware update for all 2.4G light accept Fuji and Olympus

BREAKING :: GF 110mm F2 Release in May :: Capture One WILL Support the Fujifilm GFX :: Fujifilm GFX First Impressions!

Capture One GFX Support

I got the first hint here at the Fujifilm GFX facebook group: GFX member Theodoros had a talk with a Fuji rep, who promised him that Capture One will support the Fujifilm GFX – read this thread here.

Only a rumor you say? You need more?

Well, then you can add this one: in his recently published GFX review, popular X-photographer Patrick La Roque says that he knows Capture One WILL support the Fujifilm GFX… and Patrick is definitely someone, who has the right contacts to be able to claim that.

GFX First Impressions

So yes, Patrick published his GFX First impressions. I know some of you say that reviews of official X-photographers should be taken with a grain of salt, but I don’t really think so. These are guys, who perfectly master their X-gear and are super-familiar with it. If they criticise a Fuji camera, it’s for sure not because they missed to read the manual and don’t know, how to use or set the camera properly (which I’ve seen very often on youtube-reviews).

And btw, Patrick La Roque is the same guy, who at the day when Fujifilm announced the X-M1, wrote a review, where he demolished the X-M1, saying that he does not like it all and it’s the most uninspiring piece of gear Fujifilm ever produced. So Patrick has proven not to be afraid to say what he thinks.

So here are some considerations he made in his great first impressions:

  • I’ve been told it WILL be supported by Phase One
  • What has me most excited is the overall smoothness of the image. It’s very hard to explain but when I compare to similar images shot with previous cameras, there’s less edge, more fluidity.
  • Very impressed by the zoom’s performance and leaning towards the wider range it offers

Patrick also tells us that the GF 110mm f/2 will be released in May. Go to laroquephoto.com to read more.

PhaseOne Managment Corrects: “Fujifilm GFX Support? We Have Not Yet Decided. It Depends on the GFX Market Impact”

Just recently I told you, how Phase One said that they will not support the GFX, since it’s a competitor to their core business.

Today I have an update for you. Phase One Support partially rectified this statement and now says:

It seems I may have spoken too quickly based on old policies. Product management has recently informed me that no decision has been made on this camera and instead they are weighing the market impact on each camera regardless of format.”

So there is still hope… but first the GFX has to sell like hot cakes :)  – via Fujifilm GFX Facebook Group.
