Hi,

Thanks for this. I'll take that support non-native, as an add-on, but is this only on the Lab?  The motors wouldn't work with the Crane 2?

Crane 2 has its own focus motor, while Crane 3 Lab/Weebill Lab have their own motors for both focus and zoom, at the same time.

I've been looking at the Crane 2's follow focus motor, and I can't see why I can't use it with the XT3?

Surely I can wrap the track cable round either the focus or zoom ring on the lens, and position the motor to drive it? Unless the motor can't be positioned like this because of the design of the XT3 (or I'm misunderstanding you).

Bottom line is that I'm trying to ascertain if the Crane 2 follow focus motor will work with the XT3.

I have a problem on my new X-T3, a "Stuck Pixel" white dot visible in dark areas of the image, like this: 

Appears only in the video and not in photos, does any of you have the same problem?

Strengthened the accuracy of face / eye detection AF performance
The AF algorithm has been improved along with the accuracy of face / eye detection AF. The ability to detect faces in the distance has been enhanced by approximately 30% and AF tracking is now more stable, even when an obstacle appears in the way. The improvements in AF are applicable to both still photos and video recording.

2.New Face Select function
The Face Select function has been introduced to provide priority auto-focus, tracking and exposure on a selected subject when multiple faces have been detected. The priority face can be selected by using the touch screen or focus lever.

3.Faster AF speed for subjects at a distance
A Double Tap Setting and Touch Function has been added to the touch screen settings*. The two settings must be set to OFF to provide a better touch screen response. These new settings allow a more intuitive touch operation when shooting, AF and focus area select.

4.Intuitive operation of touch screen
A Double Tap Setting and Touch Function has been added to the touch screen settings(*1). The two settings must be set to OFF to provide a better touch screen response. These new settings allow a more intuitive touch operation when shooting, AF and focus area select.
*1:By default, Touch Screen Setting, Double Tap Setting and Touch Function are set to all OFF. Touch Screen Setting must be set to ON to use the touch screen function.

5.Focus frame when EYE DETECTION SETTING
When using EYE DETECTION SETTING, only focus frame on eye is displayed.

6.Improvement of AF/AE area tracking when using EVF
When using the EVF, tracking function for AF/AE area movement by touch screen is improved.

7.Push function of the Focus stick when INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING
The push function is disabled when INTERVAL TIMER SHOOTING.

8.FLICKER REDUCTION function
The options are changed from ON/OFF to ALL FRAMES/FIRST FRAME/OFF. And when choosing FIRST FRAME, the speed of CH countinuous shooting is imroved.

9.Message when IMAGE TRANSFER ORDER
If there is no image of TRANSFER ORDER when turing on a camera, no message appears.

10.Fix of slight defects.

@Attila Bakos Fujifilm Tokyo has responded to the use of BT.601 tag in internally recorded files: 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Is it the BT.601 tag that is causing the Magenta skies / clouds?

But....ahhh... at least we have workarounds.

Is there a summary of the various workarounds?

No, the magenta issue is something else, but I wouldn't worry about it too much. It's not something you see in each clip, I haven't seen it on my X-T3 yet.

For the workarounds check this thread:

Thanks.

I am pretty sure that once I decide to sell all my Sony gear and spend big $$$ going Fuji, then Sony will release an aps-c camera with 10-bit 4:2:2 60fps 4K just to spite me.

lol

Well, I fear that now that Sony is grabbed a big share of the FF mirrorless market that they might be turning into a bit of a Canon-like company. So probably you have nothing to worry.

That may be the case, but know what?
Most likely they won't announce any new APS-C lens to accompany it.

In 3-years time they released 3 APS-C bodies and only one lens meant for them (18-135/3.5-5.6 so I'm not even sure we can count it)..

If it wasn't for Sigma, all the a6000s wouldn't be that popular.
