Fujifilm came out with a new piece of software last week, the Fujifilm X Acquire tether software. It’s free, and lets you shoot tethered with the X-T1, X-T2 and GFX 50S cameras to Windows or Mac. I just had to dig into it, so I made a video tutorial on how to set it up and use it. You can watch it on my YouTube channel. I’m combining X Acquire with Capture One Pro 10, but I also show you how you can use it in a more basic way without any additional software, as well as give you some powertips on shooting tethered to a Dropbox folder.
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. You can watch the tutorial on my YouTube channel by clicking here.
Shooting tethered is a great tool for me, and I know many photographers are looking for info on how to set it up with the Fujifilm X-T2 camera. Feel free to check out my latest video on YouTube, where I go into detail on how to set up tethering with Lightroom and the Fujifilm Tether Plug-in made by Adobe, plus a bunch of tips, tricks and feedback on what I think about Lightroom as a tool for this. Click here to view the video on my YouTube channel. And the next video, covering how you can shoot tethered with the X-T2 and Capture One Pro 10, will be released in a couple of weeks.
Let me be honest. I’m not a rangefinder guy. I grew up shooting medium format and SLRs, both film and digital. I’ve barely used a Leica, and only held a Fujifilm X-Pro1 in my hands once without even taking a picture with it. That’s why I thought it would be a great idea to share my thoughts with you on the Fujifilm X-Pro2! Don’t you agree…?! Well come on in and read more about it.

Finally I get to say woohoo! Right before Christmas, I had a meeting with Fujifilm Nordic where I got to play around a little bit with the X-Pro2 a few weeks before the official launch. I was hugely impressed even from that very brief encounter, and I have really been looking forward to starting using it since that.
And finally today, a nice guy from Schenker arrived at the door with a package. And not only did it contain a shining new X-Pro2, but Fujifilm Nordic had also sent me a couple of bags with something that I believe must be Japanese popcorn. Ahhhhh… So sweet! Those guys are the best! The popcorn was a bit on the dry side actually, but I managed to get it down with half a bottle of Sake. I’ll of course be back with a thorough camera field review after I’ve had the chance to use it for a while.
I’m actually starting to get tired of myself. Each time Fujifilm comes out with a new lens, I seem to go bananas with the ohs, ahs and woohoos. And now Fujifilm Nordic has been kind enough to let me shoot with the XF90mmF2 lens for a little over 3 months, so click inside to see if it’s woohoo-time again.

Today, Fujifilm is releasing version 4.0 of the X-T1 firmware, and once again, they are trying to make Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Toothfairy appear at the same time. And off season for two of them actually. Did Fujifilm manage to pull it off? Well read on and find out…
Fujifilm continues to please and surprise, and they do what no other camera manufacturers do: release new functionality for existing cameras through firmware updates. Where others hardly bothers to fix bugs, Fujifilm releases new and useful functions. For free! The last time was in December, and now at the end of June they will improve the X-T1 with a brand new and improved autofocus system. You can read more about the upgrade here.
And check out this video from Fujifilm that shows a little bit of what can be expected. In other words, prepare yourself for getting a brand new camera – free of charge! Wohoo!
