Canon and Nikon have a tendency to dominate the news with lenses and bodies. Fujifilm wants to capture your attention with something different — software. And cool software at that. Starting from November this year, select Fujifilm cameras, in combination with a special desktop application, will be able to convert RAW images using the camera's internal hardware.

Dear Giz, I'm interested in getting a camera that has a remote control to take self-portraits. What do you recommend? I don’t mind something easy to be used, it doesn’t need to be super high-tech, and I don’t like bulky cameras. Also is there some sort of mini tripod that goes with the camera? One I can put on a desk. Or do I need a regular tripod? I'm on a budget, I can spend maybe up to $2k all up? Eek, is that impossible?
Hiya Gizmodo! My 15 year old son has really started getting into photography — it has quickly become one of his favourite subjects at school. I'd love to get him a decent camera (under $1000) that can grow with him and his skills, for a few years at least. What's the best direction to go in? Cheers, Mum
When you're buying your lunch today, you might want to take a moment and spend a little more. Gizmodo's Lunch Time Deals posts point out any particularly good bargains for Aussie bargain hunters around the 'net.

Even four years later, Fujifilm's X-Pro1 interchangeable-lens camera stands on its own in the world of mirrorless shooters. It's an uncompromising, no-bullshit serious photographer camera for arty types who "want to take their time with it". What then, will people say about its newly introduced successor, the X-Pro2?
It's assumed that once CDs killed off audio cassette tapes, the medium became extinct. But believe it or not, magnetic tape is still alive and well when it comes to data storage, mostly because it's so cheap. And now that IBM has found a way to squeeze 220TB onto a single cartridge, hard drives will still have plenty of competition for years to come.
The thing about software is that it's... soft. Malleable! You can add neato things to it that make products better. Camera makers usually update a device's firmware with bug fixes and supposed "performance increases". Not so with the upcoming December update to Fujfilm's X-T1 mirrorless camera. It's replete with fancy new abilities.
Need a new camera? You were already spoiled for choice, but that decision has just become even harder. A swathe of new cameras, lenses and accessories are currently on show at the world's largest photography show.

With Polaroid out of the picture, Fujifilm has been making moves in recent years to own instant photography — what's left of it anyway — with its Instax line of cameras, printers, and film. Today, it makes a play at a niche of the instant market with a larger format camera that pops out wide photos.
