Fuji June 9 Firmware Updates Successfully Installed On X-E2s, 35mm f/2, 18-55mm & 55-200mm f/3.5.

by Anura Guruge


Yes, as planned I waited until today, June 13, 2016 — 3 full days after the release — to do the update.

No problems. Very smooth. In total took less than 10 minutes for all 4 updates and I, intentionally, took it slow so as to avoid any ‘finger trouble’. I even gave the Fuji battery a quick ‘top up’ charge in between the body update and the lens updates!

Did the body, i.e., X-E2s, with just that update on the card.

Then I formatted the card, topped up the battery, and copied ALL 3 updates to the card at once. As I had read on a Fuji forum that was no problem. Camera effortlessly picked up the right update for each lens that was mounted. That saved quite a few steps and time. Lens updates, with the file size just 388KB, were quick. I think I could have had all 4 update (or more) on the card at the same time BUT I was willing to do the body separately.

Did the 55-200 zoom last. Then couldn’t resist taking some pictures, in my darkened study, at ISO 12,800 using manual focus. I will upload the images laters. It could be my imagination and WISHFUL thinking, BUT they seemed sharper!


Lens updates I succesfully installed.

Antonin Scalia — Family Decline Autopsy.

The body of the Supreme Court judge has definitely left Texas and is now enroute to Virginia.

According to ABC News, at 11 pm (on Sunday, Feb. 14), no autopsy was performed in Texas. Family declined to request one. Per Texas law, prior to the body being allowed to be taken out of the State, it was embalmed. Yes, an autopsy can still be done, post-embalming, but a lot of ‘evidence’ will be gone. Shame.

So that is the story. No autopsy.

No Autopsy On Antonin Scalia As Yet, Maybe Waived; FBI Involved In Investigation.

There is a chance that an autopsy might not be performed. I heard on TV that a local Texas Justice of the Peace (JP) pronounced it a ‘death by natural causes’ over the phone BEFORE seeing the body! That is Texas.

Obama should, via the appropriate channels, insist on an autopsy. It would be a shame if conspiracy rumors continue to circulate.

[I have a personal ‘angle’ when it comes to autopsies. 24 years ago, when my adoptive mother, at 62 and in reasonably decent health other than Parkinson’s, chronic asthma and high blood pressure, passed away — unexpectedly — in her sleep, in Paris (France), my adoptive father, the Sri Lankan Ambassador to France ‘declined’ an autopsy claiming Diplomatic Immunity. 24 years later there are quite a few of us in the family that still have nagging doubts!]

Click to read my original PLEA for body donation. Please.


This sensationalistic headline in the U.K. Daily Mail is unnecessary!

Why would YOU care what happens to your body after you die?

PLEASE donate it to science — let them do whatever. Why do YOU care.
Feel good about it, instead.

This, from the same article, says it all.

What MORE do YOU want to hear or know.

Please donate. This is one of the dearest causes to my heart.
One of the BEST decisions I ever made.
That the person who ‘inspired’ me to do this RENEGED on it, when he died, only shows how IMPORTANT it is.
My ‘grandfather‘ (though probably not biologically) did this and asked ALL males in the family to do so.
None have so far, because his own son didn’t heed the request. So I will be the first — I HOPE.

One student said: ‘Books and models are all very well and good but you don’t see what it’s like, you don’t get to feel what it’s like. Dissecting a cadaver is the only way to actually learn’ …”

There is a video trailer that goes with it. YOU can access it directly from the article. OK?

It Is Official. No Images Of Nelson Mandela’s Body. Is The Family Trying To SELL The Pictures To TMZ Or Did The Embalming Go Wrong?

Where is Nelson Mandela’s body?
Dec. 12, 2013.


I found this last night from South Africa.

No PLANS to release Madiba pics.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was never a Saint per se.

But, he was an exemplary human being with a heart of gold and a great set of values.

Not so when it comes to his extended, splintered, multi-tier family.
Fully understand and appreciate that many went through A LOT
in the past and that some did a great deal of good for the cause.
As such they, though not all, are entitled to try and
profit as much as possible from their GREAT MAN.

But, it would be a shame if this is all but a ploy to
get big bucks for photo exclusives.

Then again, knowing South Africa’s propensity for getting this wrong —
they could very easily botched the embalming.

I am sure we will find out soon enough.

I was, as I had for the last 72 hours, was on a mission to find the body.

Happened to see this YouTube video with the  ‘… body lies …‘ title. So, of course, I had to watch it.

I only spotted Rajapaksa (who I don’t know) because he stuck out … the lone figure in white
… yes, the Sri Lankan national outfit (sans the red scarf) … but, with the red, makes him look like a wannabe pope
(which would, of course, make his Catholic wife rather happy).

So, from what I can see, he stayed on after the open air memorial service earlier this week.

Mystery deepens.

You would think that there would be ONE official picture.

Don’t get it.

Trust me. I have a nose for such matters. Something is amiss.

We have seen the bodies of plenty of heads-of-state and popes at their funeral.

I come from a culture where the body is invariably on show
— typically properly embalmed given the heat.

Yes, it is ‘Spring’ in South Africa.
I think, as with the fake interpreter, they screwed up.
That would not be unusual for them.
They are good at that and have lots of practice.

Where Is Nelson Mandela’s Body? I Have Yet To See It? I Haven’t Even Seen The Casket. What Is The Deal Here?

CNN, which always appears to have trouble covering important overseas events,
has managed to set a new sorry, abysmal record for ineptitude
with the Mandela coverage.

I watch at least two hours of CNN every day,
from around 8:20 to 9:20 and then at night between 7 and 8.
So, I always catch the 9 a.m. news.

I have yet to see Mandela’s body.

I NEED to see Mandela’s body.

I can’t even find it on Google News.

What is the deal here.

I even checked the BBC.

Something is awry. I don’t like it.

Click to access. Some good pictures. But NONE of the body.

What is the BIG deal here? We are talking about South Africa?

Yes, given that I follow all Test playing countries and I do know a few South Africans, I know a bit more about S. A. than most.

How many of YOU actually have even heard of the current S.A. president, the ANC Jacob ‘the polygamist’ Zuma, the rape allegations and how he paid 10 cows for a child bride?

That is South Africa.

There are three (3) words that have always helped me understand Africans — including the Kenyan Barack Hussein Obama II, the disgraceful president of the U.S. of A.

Those three words are:
Munda Logic‘ &
Eysenck.

When you are familiar with Eysenck and ‘Munda Logic’, fake interpreters, Obama’s (yet more stupidity) ‘selfie at funeral‘ or Obama’s FRAUD when it comes to ObamaCare are all easy to rationalize and reconcile. Basically it is par for the course. That is how they do things.

But, that I can’t see Mandela’s body bothers me.

Enough said.
