Is it the smartphone or lack of fun that's killing the camera?
Camera companies are struggling to sell cameras - that much is widely known. But analyst Heino Hilbig argues that it's not smartphones, market saturation or the fallout of the 2008 financial crisis that's caused this. Instead he argues that it's the fun-factor and easy operation that the iPhone brought that have made cameras seem less attractive. We think he's on to something. Read more

The Mac plug-in for tethered shooting on the Fuji X-T1 is here! 

Quick thoughts/troubleshooting:

1. It works!
2. Make sure to turn on sync in Creative Cloud app (link for help on this on Adobe exchange site)
3. CC app takes care of download and install into LR. Slick!
4. Before connecting X-T1 to computer, go to Set-Up Menu 3, and change USB Mode to "Auto"

Some folks are complaining about the $29 price. I'm fine with it. A relatively small set of users need this functionality, so I'm willing to pay a bit for the engineering time/energy to make this feature available. The free firmware updates, which continually improve my X-T1 in everyday use (2 major updates in the 6 months I've had the camera) are where I'd prefer engineering effort focused.

Thanks +Fujifilm and +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom engineering teams for working together on this!

Yo! Get an 'amen' from all of the above. I am glad that Fuji decided to give us a Mac version!
