Zhongyi Mitakon Lens Turbo II N/G-FX Focal Reducer and Other Speedbooster Infinity Focus Fix

Focal reducers and speed boosters aren’t always perfectly tuned for infinity focus, but there is an easy fix. You can find a few descriptions of the process in various forums around the internet, but the above video best describes the process. Basically, you have to find the screw/s on the reducer/speed booster that allows you to adjust the rear element. Once you do it would be best to mark the original position so you can return to the stock adjustment if necessary.This shouldn’t be necessary for the majority of adapters/lenses, but some combinations might require adjustment and if you bought a reducers/booster for a specific lens it’s worth taking the time to tune the adapter yourself if it doesn’t work 100% out of the box. This method could also be used for extreme Macro work.

This method could also be used to add Macro capabilities to a lens if you want to experiment.

Fujifilm GFX: 5 Reasons to Shoot Medium Format

It has been a while since I did a Fujifilm GFX roundup and it is good to see that there are some new photographers getting their hands on it now as well as some longer term reviews. FujiAddict has been growing by leaps and bounds lately with lots of breaking news here first.

In fact, a reader recently informed me that Fujifilm had something very kind things to say about the site “the Fuji employees commented on how spot on you are” and I would attribute it to our great community and lack of click bait, unlike other sites. So please continue sending in the tips, anonymous and otherwise, so we can remain out in front of the competition and continue growing.

Instax Mickey Edition


Nokisthita reported on Twitter that an Instax Micky camera is coming soon. It looks like it could be a lot of fun for the kids and might be a little more durable than a standard Instax camera. Fujifilm already makes a variety of Disney products for Instax cameras, so this isn’t a surprising announcement. Maybe it will be out in time for Christmas.

This Camera Goes by Instax Mini Tsum Tsum in China

Fujifilm X-T2/GFX Canon Smart Adapters and Nikon Smart Adapters Coming Soon

We are finally living in a golden age for smart adapters on Fujifilm cameras, which will help photographers easily switch from companies like Canon/Nikon with a minimal investment. Tech Art, Steelsring and Frigner are leading the way by developing adapters that are ever so slightly different. Steelsring has a Nikon smart adapter coming soon according to their site, which will be the most compatible Nikon AF adapter yet for Fujifilm cameras, based on their previous work.

The ability to use legacy glass on mirrorless cameras makes them ideal for photographers looking to switch systems, but it also allows photographers to regain access to lenses with a lot of character. I know a few photographers that prefer to shoot with Russian glass over applying filters to get a more classic look, but there is also a lot of Canon/Nikon glass out there worth trying once they are fully compatible with Fujifilm cameras.
