Cactus Fujifilm Support

Cactus announced that a Beta Firmware for Fujifilm X-T2 support is almost ready. They are looking for Beta Testers. Here is what they said in their forum.

Hey everyone, a quick update…

In the next couple of days, we will soon have a beta firmware for you to test on the X-T2.

If you are interested in testing it with us, please send an email to info@cactus-image.com with subject line “X-T2” and we will send you the Updater with embedded X-T2 beta firmware.

I would greatly appreciate if you can share your findngs here on the fourm (under this post) so we can see if others experience the same kind of bugs and issues.

For those who needs to use the V6 II for commercial work, please wait a little bit more as the beta version is likely not ready.

Thank you in advance to those who are participating.

Fuji X-T2s on the Way – BHphoto Gets First Batch Tomorrow, but Shipping Will Start on September 8

“I just called B & H to check on the status of my July 7 X-T2 order because I’m leaving tomorrow (8/31) for a 2 week trip to Ireland. They told me they were getting several thousand in tomorrow. Of course.”

ADMIN NOTE 1: If the information Steve got is correct, then it seems BHphoto will have a quite large stock of X-T2’s available tomorrow.

ADMIN NOTE 2: Keep in mind that Fuji has some kind of “shipping embargo” on products (in the case of the X-T2 the deadline is September 8). This means that, although stores get the products earlier, they have to wait for the shipping embargo to end, before they can start delivering. Don’t ask me why stores have to sit on those X-T2 boxes for one more week.

And what about your pre-order? What is your store saying? We have an X-T2 Pre-orders thread also at our Fuji X Forum here.

Hi,

I’ve been reading FujiRumors for a few years. So after I spotted the news of the X-T2 Firmware 1.35 update seeping out into the hands of testers I felt it only natural to share this video with all of you passionate about Fujifilm.

It’s showing amazing strides in the video colour reproduction on the X-T2. Whereas the videos from the unveiling were hard and contrasty, with crushed blacks and blown highlights, here’s a fresh video showing that they’ve taken video really serious the last month. I think it looks amazing now. I’m not hesitant at all anymore about the X-T2 as a video camera.

Take a look for yourself.

Admin Note: Cuckoo is refering to the fact that Fujifilm is constantly releasing new Firmware updates in the pre-release time, in order to fix bugs but also to improve IQ. In this case he is refering to FW 1.35, one of the latest if not the latest pre-release FW [Update: the latest version is 1.42], as mentioned by Ken here.
