Release Candidate for darktable 1.6 | Darktable

We are happy to announce the first release candidate for the upcoming darktable 1.6. In case you are wondering about the versioning scheme: we use odd numbers as development versions and even numbers for stable releases. This means the release candidate, tagged as „darktable-1.5.1″, is an unstable development version – the final stable version will bear the tag „darktable-1.6.0″. Grab the tarballs from the github release page:
https://github.com/darktable-org/darktable/releases/tag/release-1.5.1

Concerning Pascal’s Unstable PPA: only Ubuntu 14.04 (LTS) is supported, and there will be no support for future non-LTS releases. Of course the stable PPA will still serve all active Ubuntu versions starting at the most recent LTS. And here are the preliminary release candidate release notes:

New features:

  • initial support for x-trans sensors
  • input colour gamut mapping
  • slideshow
  • better basecurve tool to create basecurves from raw/jpg pairs
  • soft boundaries in sliders (right click and type 8 in exposure compensation for example0
  • support huge images (> 32 bit pixel index)
  • pwstorage libsecret
  • new defringe image operation
  • automatic levels
  • big exr export speedup (multicore support)
  • color conversion speedup (openmp for lcms2 case)
  • tiff read/write rewritten, works on 32-bit float now
  • embedded icc profile support for png/tiff (read/write) ……

Fujifilm Camera Owners Get New TTL Flash: The Nissin i40 |
The Phoblographer

It’s a very well known fact that Fujifilm camera owners don’t have the best selection of TTL flashes available.But that’s slowly changing–as is evident with the newest offering from Nissin. Their i40 flash now supports Fujifilm cameras and has all the choices and options that you’d expect from a more consumer friendly flash. The i40 features analog dials on the back, slave mode, rotates left and right to 180 degrees, has an LED video light, and is pretty powerful at guide number 131. The head also tilts upwards to 90 degrees. While this is a bit of a start, much more advanced flashes are indeed needed for Fujifilm’s cameras. We hope that Phottix will one day deliver on this as Yongnuo’s options tend to be very hit or miss…….

Thoughts on the Photokina 2014 | Ming Thein

Fuji

Not much of interest here: a mildly warmed-over X100T, another color of XT-1, an X30 and a couple of lenses. The X30 has now grown so large you might as well get a small mirrorless camera instead. If I display a palpable lack of enthusiasm for Fuji, it’s mainly because whilst they build a great camera body – the X-T1’s ergonomics are superb, barring flat buttons – the lenses are merely good, and they still haven’t really addressed the workflow problem. ACR still does a terrible job with the files, and Silkypix is still unusable for a professional workflow and large quantity of images. I think it’s very telling that a lot of the ‘pros’ who use Fuji do not shoot raw. Shooting JPEG leaves far too much image quality on the table……

Photokina 2014: Hands-On with the XF 50-140mm f/2.8,
XF 56mm f/1.2 APD and more | MirrorLessons

Fujifilm is taking an important step with the new lenses it recently announced, and with the lenses that will come in 2015. We are not talking about small and compact lenses but professional lenses with a complex design that can give you the best image quality while keeping size and weight as low as possible. I think that the presence of these lenses is certainly going to help the system take a big leap forward, but many users have also started to wonder whether one of the most interesting aspects of the CSC camera, portability, is at risk……

Fujifilm updates X-mount lens roadmap through end of 2015 |
Digital Photography Review

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) is pleased to release an updated road map for X mount interchangeable lenses.

A large-diameter medium telephoto lens (the XF90mmF2.0R) features for the first time on the development road map for first half 2015. The next available lens will be the XF50-140mm F2.8 R OIS WR. Following on from the XF18-135mm lens, this will be Fujifilm’s second weather resistant lens designed to partner its X-T1 camera. Other updates to the road map include the previously announced “Ultra-wide angle lens” being confirmed as the “XF16mmF1.4 R” with a guide launch date of mid 2015. And the planned launch of the XF16-55mmF2.8 WR lens moving to Spring 2015 and the Super Tele-Photo Zoom lens to Winter 2015. Highly regarded for their outstanding image quality, resolution and well-built bodies, the unique X mount lens range now includes super-wide angle to super-telephoto range lenses and a large-diameter lens with rich bokeh and high resolution…….

Fujifilm Gets It and Sony Doesn’t | The Online Photographer

All things considered, is there a more desirable lens line on the planet right now than Fuji XF? In fact, mid-2014 also seems to be smack-dab in the middle of Fujifilm’s moment. It’s just on one great big roll right now. Everything coming up sevens. In just a few years, Fuji has created a coherent, consistent line of all-new lenses that essentially have it all when you consider all the factors that impinge on desirability—size, weight, performance, handling, specs, and consumer cost. Expensive but attainable, fast but not too big, sensational image quality—nothing clearly beats it for general non-specialist photography even now, and users have faith that the vaporware on the lens roadmap will show up when Fuji says it will. The company’s track record has been excellent. All that is priceless…….

Firmware V1.10 for X-T1 | Fujifilm Global

The firmware update Ver. 1.10 from Ver. 1.00 incorporates the following issues:

  1. Addition of compatibility with „XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR“
    To ensure that autofocus performs as expected, upgrade the firmware for the camera.
  2. Improvement of „Exposure compensation/exposure indicator“ in EVF
    Values are added to the scales of the indicator for better visibility.
  3. Improvement of Movie-record button operability
    To avoid an accidental movie shooting, the delayed time will become longer between the moment you press the button and a movie shooting starts or ends.
  4. The phenomenon is fixed that images are not recorded with the set interval when „INTERVAL“ in „INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING“ is set to 5 sec or less. In this case, the setting of „IMAGE DISP.“ in „SCREEN SET-UP“ will change to „OFF“ automatically.

Precaution

  1. If firmware updating fails, the camera may no longer operate correctly in some cases. Carefully read the notes provided here.
  2. Always use the fully-charged battery when updating the firmware as a basic manner. Never turn the camera off or attempt to use any of the camera controls while the firmware is being overwritten.
  3. Firmware updating requires approximately 90 seconds.
  4. Once the firmware has been updated, some data of the previous version cannot be restored.
