Living in Europe, I have never had the chance to get to PhotoPlus Expo, but I am always jealous each year when I see the Facebook posts of people getting ready to work there or to just get a chance to have some hands-on time with the latest and newest tech. This week we also have some new updates from Fujifilm. Check everything below. This week’s news digest should be a five-minute read.
Weekly News Digest is brought to you by the new Exposure X4 from Alien Skin Software. Exposure is the award-winning photo editor and organizer that provides unmatched creative tools and special effects, fast layering and retouching, and outstanding Fujifilm RAF processing quality. Exposure X4 features improved shadows and highlights, smart collections, perspective correction, a Lightroom migration tool, freely moveable light effects and more. Exposure is FujiLove’s photo editor of choice. We invite you to try it free today.
The featured image was taken with the X-T3 with the XF100-400mm lens by S.Rebello.
In keeping with historical frequency, Fujifilm has released updates and firmware for selected lenses and cameras.
They say: “On this support website, the firmware update is provided for improvement of operability and performance of interchangeable lens camera body and compatibility with interchangeable lenses. Please use your cameras and lenses with the latest version of firmware.”

Instax SQUARE SQ20
I am a huge fan of the Instax system. The little printers are awesome but I really enjoy using the cameras too. This newest offering, the SQ20, is looking pretty smart. Check this link out if you are interested in learning more.
The frame grab system will be great fun to use and a great way to capture some action shots. “Shoot a video up to 15 seconds long, use the dial on the back of the camera to select the frame that captures the best moment and print your photo.”
