Sunday Savings Continues

The Fujifilm X-E2S was added to the discount pile this week. I’m curious how much longer the 16MP X-Trans sensor will remain on the market for with almost the entire line up being available with a 24MP sensor now. When the Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm X-H1 come out this year the used market will likely become flooded with 24MP X-Trans sensor cameras, which will make it even harder to sell the 16MP cameras still left in stock.

Switching from Canon to Fujifilm

Lots of professional photographers have been switching from Canon to Fujifilm this past year thanks to the Fujifilm X-T2 and most of them have been featured on some pretty big sites like FStoppers. You can find a ton of switch videos on Youtube but the most recent videos sum up the arguments for why many are leaving Canon for Fujifilm. Mirrorless has matured and even the old holdover argument of Canon’s color science has become mute because Canon can’t tell the difference between their colors and Fujifilm’s.

If the Fujifilm X-T3 is released before Canon’s mirrorless comes out Fujifilm might continue to convert Canon and Nikon photographers. I do not think the Fujifilm X-H1 will be as effective as the X-T3 at this task outside of photographers that have a hybrid workflow, due to the drawbacks of IBIS, but 2018 is looking very good for Fujifilm and it will look even better if the rumored Canon and Nikon mirrorless cameras are delayed yet another year or if they aren’t truly professional cameras.

Don’t forget to join our Fujifilm XT Owners Group and Fujifilm X-H Owners Group, also follow Fujiaddict on Facebook and Twitter.

Fujifilm X RAW Studio and X RAW Studio vs Lightroom

I like many haven’t really found a use for Fujifilm X RAW Studio in my workflow, but the above video from Fujifilm about Yukio Uchida made me reconsider the utility of the software a little. If you like to shoot a final baked in photo with JPG like Yukio Uchida than X RAW Studio can help you learn all of the JPG tweaks available on Fujifilm cameras on a bigger screen, which will shrink your learning curve and allow you to try more film simulations and settings than you might have otherwise.

Similarly, Fujifilm X RAW Studio could help convert JPG shooters into RAW shooters by showing them just how far Fujifilm RAW files can be pushed. X RAW Studio is an interesting tool I will be including it in my next RAW engine comparison, but I am curious how much use it is getting. It is good to see that Lightroom and X RAW Studio have very similar final colors for their Fujifilm simulations from the limited amount of testing out there and maybe I will explore that more in the future too. Many photographers enjoy Fujifilms simulations and programs like Luminar and ON1 should hopefully have the officially soon.

Techart (Shoten) EF-FG 01 Firmware Update

The latest firmware Ver. 2.0.0 was released on the electronic adapter SHOTEN (EF-FG 01) which can be used with Canon EF mount lens, medium size Mirrorless camera of FUJIFILM G mount standard. (* Firmware compatible with Windows 8 and Windows 10. Otherwise, it does not correspond.)

  1. Improve focus accuracy on lenses
  2. AF-C shooting (Further optimisation needed for certain lenses)
  3. Video shooting (Further optimisation needed for certain lenses)
  4. Support correct lens model number written into EXIF
  5. Improve the speed to turn on the camera after image preview
  6. Improve compatibility of Tamron Lenses
  7. *Selective removal of the pre-set 63mm lens profile.

* To remove the profile, press and hold the silver button on the adapter to switch on the camera. Removing the profile will disable the distortion & vignetting correction function and may result in a more/less satisfactory image on different lenses. Please test before use.

Initialization of Techart EF-GFX adapter 

The firmware v2.0 requires initialisation at first connection. The camera has to save the parameters of your lens in the first connection. The lens will run a full focusing from closest to infinity automatically after connected. (it normally takes less than 5 seconds).  Please do not disturb or press any buttons during this initialization process. Once the camera has saved the parameters of the lens in the first connection, no further initialization is needed for the same lens. This initialization will repeat itself when a different lens is mounted onto the adapter.

Update Instructions

  1. Prepare a mini-USB cable and connect the adapter to a computer with Windows 8 / 10 operating system
  2. Unzip and open the application.
  3. Left-click the EF-GF01 Adapter firmware
  4. Click the ‘Update’ button
  5. Wait until the power bar goes to complete (It usually takes less than 10 seconds)
  6. Update is finished
