Fuji X Secrets workshops typically extend over two days. As theory meets practice, you will experience light-bulb moments. Small groups with a maximum of seven delegates ensure an engaging and collaborative atmosphere with plenty of interaction. We are going to have fun.
Each workshop is different, as the delegates play an important role in steering it ahead. Your existing knowledge and what you want to learn determine what topics Rico is going to dwell on. Here’s an article explaining key topics that we can cover.
Who are you? Fuji X Secrets is tailored to (existing and prospective) users of the following X camera models: X-Pro1, X-E1, X-M1, X-A1, X-A2, X-A3, X-A5, X-A7, X-E2, X-E2S, X-E3, X-E4, X-T1, X-T2, X-T3, X-T4, X-T10, X-T20, X-T30, X-S10, X-T100, X-T200, X-Pro2, X-Pro3, X-H1 and all GFX cameras, as well as X70, X100, X100S, X100T, X100F and X100V. However, users of the compact XF10, X20, X30 and XQ1/XQ2 models will also benefit from this offer.

He has written a number of books on topics as diverse as Adobe PageMaker and sled dogs, and produced a beautiful book of photographs titled Huskies in Action.

Hi Rico, have meanwhile an X-E1 and X-E2, and wanted to buy your books online @ rocky nook. However, the paypal fuss doesn’t meet my needs -any ways to buy straight with the credit card or even better with Amazon Kindle? Thanks Dan
6. Februar 2016 um 01:21
Hi Dan, you’d have to ask Rocky Nook about payment methods, or buy it on amazon.com, or at any other online/offline bookshop.

Hi, any idea when the app will allow an external mic to be the audio source when recording video?

I purchased your latest book ‘The FujifilmX100F 101 X-Pert Tips (Rocky Nook)
Please refer to your illustrations (Parts of the Camera) at least in the PDF I was furnished, the labeling of the parts is totally incorrect. I hope the book, when I receive it does not reflect the same errors.
21. Januar 2018 um 19:01
I checked my PDF, and the labeling appears to be correct there.

I purchased your book Fujifilm X Pro2: 115 expert tips. You have published on this site Fujifilm X Pro2 using Firmware 2.00. Will you be publishing using Firmware 3.00 / 3.10?
17. März 2018 um 10:25
No. I will do an English blog about the final firmware of the T2, which has pretty much the same additions. A German version of part one is already online.

Ich habe schon einige Bücher von Ihnen alles super gut zu lesen. Frage: Gibt es Bücher über die Blitzsysteme von Fuji. Habe diverse Kamera E 30/Xt 1/x-pro 2, komme mit dem kleinen EF-20 oder EF-42 noch am besten zurecht. Das EF X-500 ist ist sicherlich super, komme damit aber in der Gesellschaftsfotografie nicht zurecht. Das Blitzprotokoll TTL von der EF X -500 bei der XT-1 knallt mir den Hintergrund immerzu dunkel auch bei einer 1/30. Gibt es hier Tricks wie mit der EF X-500 richtig umgegangen werden kann. Liebe Grüsse
4. Juni 2018 um 16:13
Alle meine Bücher enthalten ein Blitzkapitel, in dem auch auf das Anpassen der Hintergrundlicht- und Blitzlichtkomponenten eingegangen wird. In den neueren Büchern wird dann natürlich auch der EF-X500 und das neue Blitzsystem besprochen.

Do you plan to release a new tips & tricks book for the Fuji X-Tf3 or should I just get your X-T2 one? I just bought the X-T3.
12. November 2018 um 18:49
An X-T3 book will come in 2019, after the Fuji X Secrets book. For now, you can certainly use the X-T2 book due the similar nature of both cameras.
12. November 2018 um 23:16
Thank you for this information about an X-T3 book. So I just bought your X-T2 one using your site & look forward to your new book. Also really appreciate your Expert Corner discount.

Hi, will there be a book about the X-T100 in English, soon?
30. Dezember 2018 um 15:37
The X-T100 is covered in the Fuji X Secrets book that is available since mid-December.
18. April 2019 um 13:34
hi, do you think you will produce a Fuji GFX 50R ebook? Thank you
18. April 2019 um 13:37
All GFX models are already covered in Fuji X Secrets.
13. November 2019 um 16:17
Hi Rico, I own all of your previous Fuji based publications, Mastering, X-Pert Tips & X Secrets, which I have enjoyed reading. Can you inform me when your X-T3 Tips will be released please?

I have just read your kind overview of the X100f some very helpful insights, thanks for creating such a handy user guide.
One thing which I am trying to resolve, is the bulb setting as I was shooting on Saturday in Greece with heat, but since then the camera started automatically changing all settings and I haven’t been able to return it to its normal mode since! Ideally i’d Like to finish the shoot on Monday and just be able to shoot without the slow bulb setting which isn’t necessary- can you help? Is there even a reset..
Ps. I’d love to be part of a workshop or do a one on one once I’m back from holiday 😉

I’m switching from Nikon to Fujifilm and have just ordered an X-T4 with the 16-80mm Lens. Delivery is a problem right now. Have you written a book on this camera – in German or English? I would really like to read your tips and background infos while I’m waiting.
8. September 2021 um 17:21
Hi, you can buy my X-T3 book for the X-T4. The cameras are very similar. Click here for links and a 40% discount code: https://fuji-x-secrets.net/fuji-x-secrets/
