New Fujifilm X/GFX website and app offers news, events, deals, interviews and tips
Fujifilm X-Series and GFX users can now tune in to the latest Fuji offers and inspiration via a new website and app created by Fujifilm USA. The site will host interviews with X and GFX professionals, run technique articles to help users get the most from their kit, and showcase collections of images shot with Fujifilm equipment.
FujifilmXGFX.com was launched yesterday by Fujifilm USA, but there are no actual geographic restrictions on access to the content, so it can be enjoyed by anyone. An app, launched at the same time is essentially a mobile version of the site, and will carry the same articles formatted for the small screen. The company promises give-aways and news of special deals, as well as a finder function to help users locate their closest Fujifilm dealer.
In addition, the company has launched a printed newspaper called Fujifilm X/GFX USA Bulletin that will feature highlights from the website, and which will be given away free in camera stores.
