Welcome back to the hum-and-drum of the work week. I trust your weekend was as fruitful as mine, as I set out with my camera on both Saturday and Sunday to get some shooting done. Only a couple of keepers, but that’s how it goes: not every image can be a winner. Speaking of winners, last week’s submission was……a saw-tooth hanger on a picture frame. Did you get it? Was it too hard? Saw-tooth hanger would have won, or just hanger. Try to keep your minds open as I’m working to include everyday items so as to expand your horizons and encourage you to take a second look at the world around you. As for this week’s submission – can you tell me what you’re looking at?
For all of those folks who have been loving their X-Pro1 but really wishing the autofocus and manual focusing was a bit better, there is hope! With a significant firmware update Fujifilm is promising a much faster autofocus in all lighting situations. Also the manual focus speed is supposed to be dramatically improved with much less focus throw and a new 3x magnification option for precision focus tasks. There are a few other major improvements, but read about them in detail in the press release copied below! Just a little prewarning for you too, the update will erase your user settings, so get those written down or remembered for when you have to set the camera back up.

Exciting stuff coming down the pipeline! After a long wait since the announcement of the X-Pro1 not too long ago there are now some awesome new Fujifilm products being announced right here, so be sure to stay tuned late into the night on Wednesday! (So late it will actually be Thursday)
Fuji is continuing to make waves in the photographic community with their continually innovative and unique camera products. While their film emulsions are slowly being whittled down to nothingness, the X-series camera portfolio is proliferating rapidly. Photos of the two new cameras and the highly anticipated XF18-55mm R zoom lens were leaked last night and the internet is already abuzz with speculation on pricing and specifications. I will be keeping you up to date as much as possible when we start seeing more reliable information crop up, but in the mean time here are the leaked photos to drool over:
