Additional Capture One 11 Tutorials and More

Since Phase One added Fujifilm support to Capture One 11 a lot of Fujifilm photographers have decided to give it a try. We covered some of the first tutorials here, but there have been some more since. It’s nice to see how much more detail an application like Capture One can retain compared to Lightroom when sharpening, but other applications like Luminar also retain a lot of detail that Lightroom blurs/worms away. One would think that the introduction of so many great RAW editors would force Adobe to fix their performance and sharpening issues, but I doubt they will until they start to lose money so you might as well give some alternatives a try.

TCSTV and More: Fujifilm GFX50R Reviews

The emphases for Fujifilm GFX50R coverage so far has been around the user experience being different than the Fujifilm GFX50S while retaining all of its image quality, but you shouldn’t expect the GFX to replace your X series camera anytime soon. TCSTV has an interesting take on the GFX calling it “the sledgehammer of cameras,” which is accurate if you’re a fan of image quality. Nothing quite drives home IQ like medium format and the GFX is the only affordable useful system on the market today (The Hasselblad X1D doesn’t compare).

TCSTV emphasizes watching your shutter speed quite a bit in their review, but I think a part of that comes from when photographers get used to IBIS cameras. If you use an IBIS camera regularly it is very easy to be lazy about form, which makes shooting at lower shutter speeds without IBIS practically impossible. I think this is partially why the Fujifilm GFX100S is getting IBIS since many will find it difficult to handhold steadily coming from IBIS bodies. I regularly shoot my GFX with 50mm equivalent focal length lens at around 1/30th handheld and get sharp images, but when I used the Fujifilm X-H1 regularly for a few months I had to increase my GFX minimum shutter speed to  1/125th, so I experienced firsthand how IBIS can make a photograph lazy.

Hopefully, the Fujifilm GFX50R brings new photographers to Fujifilm cameras. I frequently try to share the experience with friends that do not shoot Fujifilm and they always come away impressed. There really isn’t anything quite like the GFX and if you are given the opportunity to use one you will better understand why Fujifilm skipped Full Frame photography altogether.

Jacques Gaines: Fuji Guy Francis Bellefeuille Interview – Full Frame Will Never Happen So Stop Asking and More

Jacques Gaines caught up with Fuji Guy Francis Bellefeuille and asked him two questions that people keep asking. The first is if Fujifilm will ever go Full Frame and if you follow Fujifilm closely you know the answer is a resounding never. The other question that is asked a lot is why should you buy a Fujifilm X-H1 if the X-T3 is a technologically better camera? Below are some excerpts and the second question:

  • Fujifilm doesn’t need Full Frame and it’s why they went to medium format
  • APS-C and Full Frame are too close
  • The Full Frame market is too over saturated
  • Fujifilm has a very strong APS-C system and they keep pushing the market
  • Fujifilm is driving the APS-C market forward with things like the ability to record 4k60 10-bit in camera before anyone else
  • Sticking with APS-C also keeps their customer base from having to switch lenses later for a different sensor size
  • There isn’t a big difference in image quality between APS-C and Full Frame
  • Fujifilm noise is more like a texture than artifacts so it’s not offensive
  • WE WILL NEVER GO FULL FRAME

Francis Bellefeuille didn’t want to answer the second question about why you should buy the X-H1 over X-T3, but he did his best. I personally applaud Fujifilm for not chasing after other camera companies and I hope they can get the GFX to be competitive with mirrorless Full Frame cameras like the Sony a7RIII.

  • The Fujifilm X-T3 is a beast and a nice attack on the video market
  • X-H1 is a tank that you can beat the *beep* out of it
  • 25% thicker magnesium so you can knock it around more
  • IBIS for the first time in a Fujifilm Camera
  • X-H1 is our we can do IBIS camera
  • The first camera that they could do video seriously
  • IBIS and Ruggedness are it’s only stand out features
  • X-H1 can take a lot of rain and more
  • X-T3 can’t take as much rain
  • Both handle the cold the same

Cinema5D: Fujifilm X-T3/X-H1 Firmware Update Interview

Cinema5D interviewed the head product planner for the Fujifilm X-T and X-H cameras about the new firmware update that is coming in December. Below are some excerpts:

  • X-T3 sales are pretty good compared to X-T2/X-H1 sales
  • Fujifilm’s impression is that 80% of users are still photographers in 20% record video
  • 4 gig file size limitation is being removed in the new firmware update
  • Hyrbird log gamma recording
  • Easy shooting 4K HDR that’s like using film simulation so it won’t need much editing
  • Recording to HDMI and SD card update
  • Currently, you record F-Log or film simulation to both
  • Now you can independently record F-Log and/or film simulation
  • So you can record HDMI F-Log and SD Card Film Simulation if you want
  • X-H1 now has hybrid image stabilization that uses IBIS and optical image stabilization together
