How to shoot tethered with the new Fujifilm X Acquire software

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.

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.
