Fuji’s Instax series has been incredibly popular since it was brought back to life in the US back in 2010. Just recently, Fujifilm updated the Mini 8 by launching the Mini 9 – both of which feature the popular credit card-sized prints. Fuji previously teased us with the tidbit that it was going to give us a square format in the Instax line and now it’s here – the Instax Square SQ10. [Read more…]
Fuji previously showed off the new GFX 50S medium format camera and new lenses back at Photokina 2016. Pricing was the big question on everyone’s mind and Fuji is hitting a pretty good price point at $6500, which comes in below the relatively affordable Pentax 645Z (now at $7000) and well below the new Hasselblad X1D-50c (at $9k).

Fuji’s new Instax mini Monochrome file is now shipping from Amazon. It’s the same Instax mini format that we’ve grown to love for the Instax Mini 8 and Mini 70, among others. As with other Instax mini film, it’s not exactly cheap. You get 10 exposures for around $15. But, hey, now we’ve got some black and white action for our instant cameras again.
I’m not sure if the going rate will remain at $15; however, you can still pre-order the film from B&H (not shipping just yet) for $9.99.
Adobe has released Camera Raw 9.6.1, which adds RAW file support for the new Fuji X-T2.
The new release also brings a couple bug fixes:
- Uncompressed DNGs files converted from Fuji X-E2 RAF source images were are unable to be read
- Errors that preventing customers from creating a panorama from two HDR DNG source images.
You can download the update through the Adobe Creative Cloud app or through the update dialog in Photoshop CC.
Fuji officially revealed the X-T2 this week, alongside a new EF-X500 flash. The new X-T2 serves as a replacement to the popular X-T1 and upgrades from a 16MP X-Trans II sensor to a 24MP X-Trans III sensor. Additionally, the X-T2 gets internal 4K video recording with a new F-Log Gamma option. [Read more…]
