How to shoot tethered with Fujifilm X-T2 and Capture One Pro 10

So here’s the second part in my YouTube series of tutorials on tethered shooting with the Fujifilm X-T2 camera. This time I show you how you can use the excellent Capture One Pro 10 software. But, since Capture One Pro 10 hasn’t built in tethering support for the X-T2 camera (or the X-T1), you have to use something like this workaround to get it to work, with the Fujifilm software HyperUtility HS-V5 running in the background. The advantages of using this setup compared to the Lightroom setup in my previous post, is that this is way faster with much better stability.

Microsoft Surface Pro & Fujifilm X-T2 – BFF?!

Sorry, I know it’s been ages since my last blogpost. Many reasons for that, but I won’t bore you with them. Instead, I’ll try to improve. This will be a short one.

For a long time I have been searching for the perfect companion to my Fujifilm cameras. Since they are small, I want something small and light, yet powerful, to connect my camera to and shoot tethered in a studio or on location. And I also want it to be accurate enough (I’m talking about the screen and the colours) so I can do editing and retouching on the road if necessary.

Enter the Microsoft Surface Pro 4! I have high expectations, but this thing is so fresh in my hands I have barely unpacked it. I think I may have promised at one time never to make an unboxing video, well I just broke that promise… Sorry…. Here it is.

The Fujifilm X-T1 GS – can it be improved?

I’ve been using the Fujifilm X-T1 and the excellent XF lenses shooting pretty much everything the last year. From portraits to fashion to architecture to industrial subjects. And in January I was so lucky to get my hands on a Graphite Silver Edition of the X-T1, probably one of the most beautiful cameras ever made!
