Fujifilm X70 Shutter Count

The Fujifilm GFX 100 is the company's flagship medium format mirrorless camera, packing an impressive 100MP sensor, as the name implies. But there's a lot more to it that just the headline-grabbing pixel count. The Fujifilm X-T1 and X-T2 both technically have shutter actuation recording, but some disruption from firmware updates has rendered the EXIF shutter count figure unreliable. You can get a (possibly incorrect) ballpark figure from the default file/folder numbering system though. The Fujifilm X70 camera is a bloody fantastic camera for the street photography crowd. It’s small, inconspicuous, fast and silent. The newly developed 18.5mm f/2.8 (28mm eq ff) lens is nothing less than fantastic. Incredible sharpness from edge to edge, even at close focus distances. Fujifilm X70 (comes in black or silver, 11.9 oz./339 g with battery and card, about $699) bigger.I got my X70 at Adorama; I'd also get it at Amazon or at B&H. This ad-free website's biggest source of support is when you use those or any of these links to my personally-approved sources when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. The shutter count that shows bears no relation whatsoever to the number of photographs taken. IMO it lies to the point of being both misleading and useless and Fuji should change the way it counts or remove it in the next firmware update.

Save time and seamlessly move between your work in the field and your digital workflow in Adobe Lightroom Classic. Simply import your photos, run a quick batch process with this plugin, and dive right into your final edits.

Why does this plugin exist?

The short answer..

Personal strife! This plugin started as a personal solution to some time-consuming walls I was hitting in my workflow with Fujifilm RAF files in Adobe Lightroom Classic.
Others told me they had the same frustrations - so I optimized, refined, and put a simple but effective user interface on the algorithm I created and now offer it for public sale here.

The long answer..

I (David Quiring) am a photographer too. When I started working with Fujifilm cameras, I enjoyed them amply in the field but, upon returning home, quickly became frustrated with some things that didn't work as they seemingly should once I loaded my images into Adobe Lightroom Classic.
After a month of traveling around Guatemala in 2017, I found a solid travel routine with my new-ish Fujifilm X-T2 camera:

  • Reviewing my images each night, I could identify what worked and what didn't in the field that day - the star ratings I applied would help me focus my processing workflow on the flagged favorite photos when I got home, and the daily review also let me identify what shots I had for the wider assignment and which I needed to still seek out.
  • Composing with the electronic viewfinder, a major perk of mirrorless camera systems allowed me to compose the frame exactly the way I intended it, film simulations and all.

Unfortunately, when I got home and loaded all my RAF raw files into Lightroom, all of my star ratings and film simulation information was nowhere to be found. I was staring at an impressive grid of 4000 images, and the daunting task of sifting through them loomed in front of me.
After some searching, the solution presented to me was to either switch to a new digital asset manager (like Capture One Pro or DXO), shoot in JPG (only a half fix for star ratings), or set my camera in front of me and manually assign each star flag and simulation. Not wanting to give up the strengths of Lightroom (things such as my print workflow and category/keyword organization) or RAW, I opted for a longer option where instead I would solve the problem for myself.

Fujifilm X70 Level Line

I studied computer science throughout university, and so I put my education to use and developed this Lightroom plugin - my own solution to the problem I faced. Now, after importing my Fujifilm images I simply select them all, run the plugin on the whole batch, and am ready to do my final edits in a matter of seconds.

I've personally been using it for years on my Fujifilm X-T2 and now my new X-T4. When Covid-19 hit and I found myself with some unexpected free time, I took it as an opportunity to put it together into the tidy and functional package that I'm offering to you here. It has optimized my workflow and, if you also photograph with Fujifilm cameras, I hope it will be of significant value to you too.

Uh oh. Did something strange happen?

Get in touch and I will do my best to squash those bugs for you. This is a solo venture, so please be patient. If I am in the field making photos myself it may take me a few days to get back to you, but rest assured that each message is read and forms the backbone of ongoing development goals.
