  1. Works now! Fuji X Forum https://www.cleverbridge.com/105/purl-silkypix-developer-studio-8-pro-fxc Fuji Rumors https://www.cleverbridge.com/105/purl-silkypix-developer-studio-8-pro-fur Sorry for the delay... Andreas
  2. Sorry for that. Will check with the distributor.
  3. You only must look carefully... Sorry ...
  4. Thanks for that - is corrected! Was a test if you read carefully 😇
  5. Phase One has introduced version 12 of its RAW Converter Capture One – including Fuji film simulations! You can save 10% on all versions and upgrades via the coupon code AMBFXC Phase One of course offers again a special version for Fuji photographers. The most important improvements at a glance: Powerful, refined interface and revamped menu system Luminosity masking, linear and radial gradient mask New plug-in ecosystem Fujifilm film simulation support Extended AppleScript support New camera and lens support Now the Fujifilm GFX 50R is supported too! New features and tools in Capture One 12 Powerful, refined interface Capture One 12 introduces a newly re-designed, contemporary interface, designed to make Capture One easier to use during long editing sessions and to make discovery, experimentation, and customizability easier than ever. New iconography better conveys tool functionality, and the new slider design, the spacing of the tools, and font size increase improves both the look and the usability of the program. The result is a new environment that feels more welcoming for new users while being more customizable for power-users. Revamped menu system Every menu item in Capture One 12 has been evaluated, categorized, and organized according to its logical function and grouped along with associated tasks, which makes it easier to find the desired controls and settings, and brings the Mac and Windows menu options into alignment. Luminosity masking One of a trio of new masking tools, Luma Range allows users to quickly create masks based on the brightness of pixels in an image and is the most powerful luminance masking tool of its kind. This masking technique is particularly powerful in landscapes and high-key portraits, as it allows for nearly-instantaneous masks in complex scenes based on brightness—eliminating the need to tediously paint complex masks. Once a luminance range is created and adjusted using the precision mask-adjustment tools, nearly any editing tool can be applied to the mask. The masks created with the Luma Range tool are dynamic and can easily be tweaked and modified at any point in the workflow. Unlike a hand-drawn mask, Luma Range adjustments can be applied from one image to another, and the effect will be based on the luminance of each image. This functionality is a huge time- saver as it eliminates the need to create precision masks for each frame in a shoot. The new Luma Range selection masks open up an incredible range of editing possibilities, from selective noise reduction to precise color grading. Linear Gradient Mask Capture One 12 takes gradient masks to the next level, allowing for editable, moveable, rotatable—and best of all—asymmetric gradient masks. Using a brand- new Parametric Masking Engine, Capture One allows for adjustments in the size, shape, and symmetry of the masks with simple mouse clicks and key presses, truly redefining the possibilities of linear gradients in Capture One. Rotate, feather and adjust a mask with a precision never before possible. Radial Gradient Mask The new Radial Gradient mask tool enables quick, flexible radial masks, useful for vignette and other adjustments with a desired falloff effect. Using the same Parametric Masking Engine as the Linear Gradient mask tool, radial masks can be adjusted, rotated and moved after creation for extreme control over desired effects. Redesigned Keyboard Shortcut manager Capture One is known for its ability to custom-assign and custom-configure virtually every task to a keyboard shortcut. With more than 500 individually- assignable and customizable commands, it’s essential to be able to find the exact shortcut, without having to hunt through hundreds of choices. Users can now search by the specific menu command, or by the assigned keyboard shortcut, making it easy to find and manage shortcuts. To unify the interface between the Mac and Windows versions the new menu system has been moved to the same location on both platforms, making it easier for workgroups to stay in sync. New plug-in ecosystem To address the needs of photographers and creatives looking to share, edit and collaborate on their images, the new Capture One plug-in ecosystem will allow for powerful third-party extensions. The new Capture One SDK will allow any developer to create custom solutions to expand Capture One, and to transform Capture One into an open ecosystem. Users of Capture One will be able to extend the platform with the upcoming addition of plug-ins that allow for sharing, editing, and that can connect Capture One to a variety of specialized editing tools. For developers, the Capture One Plugin SDK—available as a free download—will provide access to the broad base of passionate professional and enthusiast photographers that use Capture One. Developers are now able to create solutions that leverage the image-editing and organizational prowess of Capture One, and the added capabilities of third-party resources. The initial Capture One Plugin SDK allows for plugin development, and can be leveraged for common tasks like sharing, sending files to external editors, and allowing images to be opened in other applications, and more. Fujifilm Film Simulation support Fujifilm X-Series and GFX-series cameras feature Film Simulations, which are in- camera tonal adjustments that faithfully reproduce the color and tonality of classic Fujifilm photographic films. Sixteen Film Simulations are available, ranging from color stocks like Provia and Velvia to black and white film like Acros. These simulations give Fujifilm users the ability to digitally capture images with the feel of beloved photographic films. Thanks to the collaboration between Capture One and Fujifilm, photographer’s using Fujifilm’s renowned X-Series and GFX-series cameras will be able to edit photos complete with Fujifilm Film Simulations. These in-camera settings have been faithfully reproduced in Capture One, to provide an identical experience when working with files, resulting in images that appear the same as if the Film Simulation picture profiles were applied in-camera. Extended AppleScript support Users of Capture One on Mac OS can take advantage of extended AppleScript support for automation and workflow streamlining. More than a dozen of Capture One 12’s areas and properties can now be directly modified with AppleScript, adding to the existing, robust AppleScript support in previous versions of Capture One. New camera and lens support Capture One provides users with the most accurate and powerful image editing available, and the wide-ranging support of cameras and lenses is a hallmark of the software. For enthusiasts and professionals alike, Capture One continually evolves to handle the newest cameras and lenses. Phase One carefully evaluates and interprets each camera’s RAW formats, allowing Capture One to present images with the utmost fidelity, often bringing out nuances that other programs can’t even perceive. In addition to the RAW support for more than 500 cameras, Capture One also provides profiling and image correction support for more than 500 lenses. Like with the RAW file interpretation, Phase One carefully measures the optical characteristics of each supported lens and builds correction algorithms that compensate for the various optical imperfections of various designs. As a result, Capture One can correct for numerous common optical issues such as vignette, and chromatic aberration as needed for each of the supported lenses. New camera support: • Nikon Z7 • Nikon Z6 • Canon EOS R • Canon EOS M50 For a complete list of supported cameras, please go to: www.phaseone.com/supported-cameras » Capture One via Phase One Online Store (Gutscheincode AMBFXC)

  10. 1. In-body image stabilization and optical image stabilization now work together to improve overall stability With an XF or XC optical image stabilized lens, in-body image stabilization worked with 3 axis (up and down / optical axis rotation). The remaining 2 axis (right and left pitch, yaw angle) was controlled by optical image stabilization in the lens. This firmware has a new image stabilization algorithm to allow the in-body image stabilization to work in all 5 axis and to achieve more than five-stops (up to the equivalent of 5.5 stops *7 ) image stabilization by cooperative control according to the types of frequency and blur amount. To activate this function, lenses are necessary to be updated to latest firmware version.

    Problems with access to forum via Tapatalk

    Sorry no news and – sorry again – I'm not going to install Tapatalk again. I had so much trouble with the Tapatalk guys, thus I have no more trust in this company that I open access to our database with a lot of sensible data. I know that some of you will be really annoyed, but I prefer to be clear in this matter. Andreas

    the new look

    What I don't understand: If you hate the white space so much, why do you use so much unnecessary empty paragraphs? With SHIFT-Return you can have a new line without space and with one (1) return you have a paragraph with a small margin. I've understood that you don't like the white space of the general layout but please accept this. As milandro said: The small heart is your fried. Did you figure out how it works? Sorry, but now the blue theme is gone too (had no ads and we have to make some income...) Here I'm back and happy to help if you have issues or questions. But please accept that the „new forum“ and the „new look“ are here to stay - and they are not so far away from the old version and they have a lot of new features, For example: Have you tried to use the forum via a mobile phone or tablet? Before and after the update? Nice features as mentions @milandro (simply type @ followed by some characters to start searching) Emojis - some hate it some love it: Simply double quote plus keywords like :fuji will offer you Mount Fuji 🗻 (sorry no Fuji cameras) Drag & Drop upload of images - already tried out? The old uploader was a nightmare compared to the new one... Have you tried out to change the start page to a news stream? Please give new software version a chance. I'm happy to change details where I can. But I'm not going to switch back to the old software or trying to emulate it... Regards Andreas
