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.

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.

How to shoot tethered with Fujifilm X-T2 and Lightroom

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.

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.
