It’s always the way with Fuji, just after they announce a new camera and owners of its predecessor get all excited and pre-order, they release a new firmware to update the old one to perform almost as well as the new one. And, they’ve done it again with the Fuji X-T3, this time with the v4.00 firmware update that they claim gives it the same autofocus performance of the new Fuji X-T4.
It’s odd, the effect that the sound a camera’s shutter makes when it’s fired can have on a person. It’s odder still that we require one at all, although they add them to the apps we use for the otherwise silent cameras in our phones. A good heavy *clunk* makes you confident you’ve got the shot, while others can leave you feeling a little underwhelmed.
In this video, a Fujifilm employee going by the YouTube username nycphotog2006 decided to put together the sounds of five of Fujifilm’s most popular interchangeable lens mirrorless cameras – The Fujifilm X-T1, X-T2, X-T3, the shiny new X-T4 and the video-centric X-H1.
One of the things that many video shooters will be very familiar with is the 4GB file size limit in place on many cameras. This is due to the limitations of the file systems used within most cameras. Many get around the issue by splitting long clips up into smaller files, with each seamlessly carrying on from where the last one ended. But it’s a lot less hassle if each clip is in its own individual file, isn’t it?
Fujifilm has announced release dates of new firmware for the X-T3, X-H1 and GFX 50S to add some new features. Amongst others, the GFX 50S gets 35mm “full frame” crop mode support when using a GF lens and H mount adapter, the X-T3 gets 4K HDR and the X-H1 sees improved in-body image stabilisation.
