Notification Regarding Iris Blades on The MK18-55mm T2.9


Dear Valued customers

Thank you for using Fujifilm products.

We have received feedback from a few customers that the iris blades did not move correctly when the iris ring was rotated.

As a result of our internal investigation, we found the potential risk that the MK18-55mm lens produced in a partial production lot, in rare cases, would cause the above problem.

Therefore, our technical staff will inspect your MK18-55mm lens with the following mentioned serial numbers free of charge. For more information, please contact your shop or dealer where you purchased the MK18-55mm lens to make arrangements to have your MK18-55mm lens sent for inspection.

We do apologize to any of our loyal customers that may be affected by this inconvenience. Please rest assured of Fujifilm’s absolute commitment to quality and service excellence.

Serial number :
From 75A00001 to 75A00354

  • *You can find the serial number near the ring on the lens mount side (see image on right).

X-T2 version 2.00 & X-Pro2 version 3.00 – due late March 2017

  • 1. Shooting RAW in Bracketing and Advanced Filters
    The update enables you to use the RAW format when shooting not only in AE Bracketing but also in other Bracketing modes (ISO, Dynamic Range, White Balance, Film Simulaitons) and also in Advanced Filter modes. 
  • 2. Extended ISO 125 and 160 selectable
    The update adds ISO125 and ISO160 to extended ISO levels available.

    Long exposure in the T mode currently goes only up to 30 seconds. The update will allow users to extend it up to 15 minutes.
  • 4. ON/OFF for 1/3-step shutter speed adjustment (X-T2 only – already in X-Pro2)
    The update allows you to turn off the Command Dial’s function to adjust shutter speed by 1/3 steps in order to prevent unintended adjustments.
  • 5. Full-range ISO adjustments with the Command Dial (X-T2 only)
    With the update, set the ISO “A” position to “Command” to adjust ISO sensitivity across the full range, including extended ISOs, with the Front Command Dial.
  • 6. “AUTO” setting added for the minimum shutter speed in the ISO Auto setting
    The update adds an AUTO option for the minimum shutter speed in the ISO Auto setting, that allows the camera to automatically define the minimum shutter speed according to the focal length of the lens attached.

Fujifilm GFX 50S Dead Beauty, Adapted Glass, and Unboxing/AF

It’s taking longer than expected to upload my astrophotography files to 500px because of internet issues and the Fujifilm GFX 50S files being between 40-80MB. I hope to have everything uploaded by tomorrow so I can do a post about the experience, but in the mean time check out my GFX gallery here and the astrophotography gallery here.

Above Lewis Von John presents some more of his GFX land scape work and below an unboxing video with some AF tests for people still curious about how well the Fujifilm GFX’s AF system works. Most of the light reviews have been posted and now sites like The Last Word are diving into adapted lens tests and comparisons. If you like adapted glass there are a lot of active members in our Fujifilm GFX Owners Group adapting glass and sharing their experiences/photos.

The Last Word – a7RII/GFX comparisons with no demosacing

The Last Word – Sony 90mm macro on the a7RII, Fuji 120mm macro on the GFX-50S

The Last Word – Sony 90mm macro on the a7RII, Fuji 120mm macro on the GFX-50S — corner

The Last Word – Otus 85 on the a7RII, Fuji 120mm macro on the GFX-50S

The Last Word – Hasselblad HC 120 macro, Fuji 120mm macro on the GFX-50S

Photographyblog – Hasselblad X1D Review “Unfortunately the second compact system camera with a medium-format sensor, the Fujifilm GFX, has followed hot on the heels of Hasselblad’s trail-blazer, which after a short initial test feels better-realised and more feature-rich than the X1D, although not as compact or well built. Watch out for our Fujifilm GFX review soon… ”

TTL Flash Pass-Through – Important?



There are many types of flash triggers available with a variety of capabilities and price ranges. A good overview is at: http://dpanswers.com/content/radio_flash.php#ttlpt. That article mentions TTL Pass-through, among other topics, and often I get questions about this such as: “Is TTL pass-through important?” As is usually the case, the correct answer requires a lot more detail. To start, let’s define ‘advanced TTL’ to mean Camera controlled flash functions including TTL, HSS/AutoFP, exposure values, lens focal length, focus beam, and other information sent from camera to flash via digital signals.

Passing these ‘advanced TTL’ signals directly to the on-camera flash via the camera mounted trigger is referred to as ‘TTL pass-through’. This usually means the camera shoe signals are blindly passed from camera, through the trigger, to the flash. Unfortunately, for the photographer, TTL pass-through doesn’t do anything to provide ‘advanced TTL’ to the slaves, which is a significant omission since that is exactly what triggers are used for: controlling slaves! Yet, this doesn’t mean such devices are not capable. It simply means you should not expect TTL Off-Camera at the slaves.

Fujifilm GFX 50S Update

The New Moon last night was perfect for shooting the Milky Way with the Fujifilm GFX 50S. I will publish my photos shortly on 500px in my astrophotography album. When the files are uploaded I will post a link in our Fujifilm GFX Owners Group too. The GFX is superb for astro work, but I want to try some adapted glass for this in the future.
