Thanks for the responses; Thats what I thought just wanted to make sure.

Can anyone tell me what the latest firmware version is for the Fuji 18-55? I have the 1.1 but thought I saw reference to a 2.0 version somewhere. Thanks!
Michel Fourkas's comment, June 5, 2013 11:57 AM
As far as I know, it's 1.1

Fujifilm XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR Review | Fstoppers

Fujifilm XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR Review | Fstoppers | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it
Fujifilm's lineup of fast primes is what sets it apart in the world of mirrorless cameras. Starting with the amazing XF 35mm f/1.4, and following up with the XF 23mm f/1.4 and XF 56mm f/1.2, Fuji have continued to impress with their small, lightweight, fast, sharp primes. The XF 16mm f/1.4 (24mm equivalent field of view on full frame), long talked about, was released in May this year to the excitement of many Fuji shooters. But does it hold up to the other primes in Fuji's lineup?

My experience: The XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8 R LM OIS | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it
I am doing a lot of landscape and nature photography. So I was thinking
about buying a lens with a bit more zoom. There are only two options at the
moment.

The XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR and the XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8 R LM OIS. I tried
both of them and decided to go with the XF55-200mm.

X-T1 / X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition Camera Body Firmware Update Ver.4.00 | Fujifilm Global

X-T1 / X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition Camera Body Firmware Update Ver.4.00 | Fujifilm Global | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it

The firmware update Ver.4.00 from Ver.3.11 incorporates the following issues:

New AF System(1)Zone and Wide/Tracking modes for effortless capture of moving subjects The AF System complements the fast and accurate 49-single-point autofocus system with new Zone and Wide/Tracking modes, which use 77 autofocus points across a wider area to substantially improve the camera's ability to capture moving subjects.
(2)Improvement of AF accuracy Single-point AF divides the focus area into smaller sections to more accurately determine the distance to the subject for even greater focusing accuracy. The built-in phase detection pixels have the detection range of 0.5EV, an improvement from the previous 2.5EV, delivering phase detection AF performance that enables fast focusing in low-light conditions and on low- contrast subjects.
(3)Eye detection AF The firmware update provides Fujifilm's Eye Detection AF, which automatically detects and focuses on human eyes.The function allows you to easily focus on the eyes even in difficult conditions.
(4)Auto Macro mode The firmware update introduces the Auto Macro function, which automatically switches the camera into the Macro mode while maintaining the conventional AF speed. You no longer have to press the Macro button to initiate a close-up shot. This update eliminates the Macro function assigned to the Macro Button, allowing you to assign a different function to the button. (Just after this update, the function will be assigned to AF mode selection.)
(5)AF improvement in the Movie mode The optimized algorithm delivers a more natural and smooth AF action during movie recording.Improvements(1)Improved Shutter Speed Dial operation When the Shutter Speed Dial is set to T and the Shutter Type to Mechanical + Electronic, you can use the command dial to set a full range of exposure times from 30-1/32000sec. Previously, this was limited to 30-2 seconds. This is particularly useful when shooting in the portrait orientation with the Vertical Battery Grip VG-XT1 attached.
(2)Exposure Compensation control in Manual You can use the Exposure Compensation dial to make exposure adjustments while shooting in the Manual exposure mode with the ISO Auto setting.
(3)Finer lines on the framing grid enhances visibility The lines on the framing grid, which you can choose to display in the Screen Set-Up menu, have been made finer making it easier to view the subject.
(4)Name of Silent mode changed to avoid confusion The Silent Mode has been renamed to "SOUND & FLASH OFF" .Other(1)If you use the "Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5 for Windows®Ver1.1", it is required to be updated.
Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5 for Windows® Ver.1.1a Updater for Windows 8 / 8.1 / 7 SP1

REVIEW: 10 days with the Fujinon XF90mm F2 R LM WR | Jeff Carter

REVIEW: 10 days with the Fujinon XF90mm F2 R LM WR | Jeff Carter | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it
The latest fast Fujinon prime is the tenth fixed focal length lens in the XF line up and the second after the 16mm f1.4 to be Weather Resistant (WR).  With the equivalent focal length of 137mm in full frame 35mm terms, the 90mm f2 offers extra ‘pulling power’ over the faster 56mm f1.2. This lens is primarily targeted at portrait, wedding and street photographers but I was interested to see if it would be of use in the areas I primarily work - motorsport and landscape. I have recently acquired the superb 50-140mm f2.8, which offers greater flexibility over the primes and covers the 90mm focal length but with the disadvantages of one stop less on the aperture and in a much larger size.  However the 50-140mm does have the addition of an Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) system built in where the 90mm doesn’t......

Controlling a Fuji X-T1 with the Fujifilm Camera Remote WIFi APP | Tom Grill

Controlling a Fuji X-T1 with the Fujifilm Camera Remote WIFi APP | Tom Grill | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it

We wanted to do a straight down lifestyle photo of a group of friends eating together at a table. This called for the camera to be located directly overhead and centered on the table, which meant there was no way for me to operate it directly or to even look in the viewfinder or LCD. I didn't want to do an elaborate setup because we had many other scenes to do that day and I didn't want to waste any time. I immediately chose the Fuji X-T1 because its light weight made it very easy to suspend over the table with a simple pole cat setup. Additionally, the Fujifilm Camera Remote APP for wireless control of the camera is one of the best I have seen. I have it on my cell phone and on my tablet, and use it for situations just like this......

Fuji X-T1 settings | Damien Lovegrove

Fuji X-T1 settings | Damien Lovegrove | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it

There are several ways of shooting with digital cameras. With SLRs I used to set up my LCD to mimic a simulated final processed image. This was punchy, vibrant with deep blacks and peaky whites. The image on the back of the camera was very different from that of the real world projected on the focussing screen in the viewfinder. However I have adopted a completely different approach to setting up my viewfinder and LCD with my Fuji X system. I have established the optimum camera jpeg settings to give me a viewfinder image that shows exactly what is recorded in the raw file. The jpegs produced with my settings are somewhat flat or calm and are not always representative of my finished photograph. Anyone who has shot raw video footage will know just how it looks prior to grading. That’s what I like in my stills camera too as it allows me to accurately assess the image exposure while I’m setting shutter speed, ISO and aperture. Here are my settings and why I’ve chosen them........

Review | 20 Countries with Fujifilm X-Series Cameras | Elia Locardi

Review | 20 Countries with Fujifilm X-Series Cameras | Elia Locardi | Fuji X Series Cameras | Scoop.it

Since May of 2013, I’ve had the pleasure of working with the Fujifilm X-Series Cameras and XF lenses, and during that time I’ve managed to shoot with them in more than 20 different countries, spanning nearly every possible photography condition. In the process, I’ve also had the pleasure of meeting many Fujifilm shooters from around the world and what I’ve discovered is that people love their Fujifilm cameras and, like me, they’re excited to talk about them. There have been quite a few times, where I was completely immersed in a sea of tripods, riddled with shooters toting every type of camera brand known to man. People with Canons, Nikons, Pentax, and Hasselblads, all sizing each other’s gear up—in typical photographer fashion—while never exchanging a word. Fujifilm shooters on the other hand, just seem to smile at each other, as if they have a shared secret that no one else knows. It’s the strangest thing, but even during photo walks, Fujifilm shooters seem to congregate; proud to be carrying their cameras and excited to talk about their favorite lenses and what is to come. There’s a sense of community and shared love for these cameras that I find absolutely delightful.......
