TheCameraStoreTV Fujifilm Live Edition: XF 80mm Macro, X-E3 and More


What a coincidence… just when I had my babysitting break of 1 hour, TheCameraStoreTV started a live stream with Fuji Guy Jarry Julien.

So I could intereact with the show and also with prominent Fuji Guys like Billy, who was active in the comments. Btw, Billy said in the comments he thinks he saw me taking a picture of him at Photokina 2016. Yep, that’s the image… and I’ve found Waldo, too :D

Check out the video at TCSTV youtube channel here.

Some excerpts below

  • X-E3 AF is not really faster in single AF, but faster in AF tracking. TCSTV was “very impressed
  • Face detection in 4K? Fuji Guy Jarry Julien agrees that it would be nice to have.
  • Fuji Guy Jarry Julien answered to a comment and said “we would love to see internal F-log in X-T2, too“… not more than this… but maybe he Julien simply couldn’t say more and there is something in the works?
  • What about XF33mmF1? Jordan says “it would be hot“. Julien says “it would be big and expensive“. FujiRumors says “big and expensive is fine… just do it!”
  • XF80mm tethering during live show with samples shown
  • XF80mm same OIS of XF100-400mm, but Fuji Guy Billy said in the comments, that the XF80 actually is actually a bit better, since it has some new technology.
  • Fuji Guy Julien says Fisheye is still a gap in the Fuji line-up
  • Fuji Guy Billy said in the comments that 1″ camera market is overcrowded.
  • Question: “Will there be IBIS in X-T2S”. Julien’s answer “disclaimer, I can’t comment on any unreleased product“.
  • Lot’s of questions about the X-T3 in the comments… of course, no comment.
  • Jordan says Fuji has amazing video autofocus
  • I asked for new film simulations, and Chris and Jordan immediatly said they would love [shoplink 62559 ebay]Neopan 400[/shoplink]

And no, there won’t be X-E3 deals after the holidays.
