Fujifilm India X-T4 Launch Event: XF50mm f/1 Coming This Year, ProRes RAW Firmware Update Possible, XLR Inputs Maybe, and Fujifilm Webcam Software in Development

Summarizing these lengthy events right takes a lot of time and patience, but there were a few gems in this launch. Fujifilm confirmed the Fujinon XF50mm f/1 is coming this year and according to the Q&A soon. Fujifilm is also developing software to use your camera as a webcam which will likely work over USB-C. Plus we might get ProRes RAW support via ATMOS in a future firmware update and Fujifilm might develop an XLR adapter for the X-T4 if there is demand.
