Fuji announcement on September 5th?

Share

Peter from Photorumors reports that Fuji will announce the new X-E1 and XF1 (or XP1) camera on September 5th (yes it is next week). And there is one more news. The next XF 18-55mm lens will be the first with new linear AF motor. It will help to speed up the autofocus to 0.1 seconds.

Pretty amazing if true!

$300 discount on the Fuji X PRO 1!!!

There is a massive price drop on the X PRO 1 when purchased along one of the X lenses at Amazon (Click here to see the X PRO 1 dedicated deal page). The offer valid through November 3, 2012 and this may support the rumor of an early 2013 X PRO 2 release…

Fuji X PRO 2 scheduled for an early 2013 release? Fuji X PRO 1 firmware coming!

According to a trusted source the X-E1 will be the “only” interchangeable mirrorless camera announced by Fuji this year. An X PRo 1 successor is scheduled for a 2013 release.

This may a good news for X PRO 1 owners. Let’s hope Fuji is focusing on a new firmware update to fix some of the small (or big) issues of the camera we already own :)

 

UDPATE: Photorumors just spotted a Facebook post written by Tony Bridge saying that a new X PRO 1 firmware update is coming on September 5th, 2012. These are the improvements:
1) In low-light condition, the X-Pro1 will be much faster in Auto Focus mode.
2) The speed of the image coming into focus when turning the focus ring has been vastly improved.
3) At maximum speed the X-Pro1 can now write to SD memory card twice as fast as before.
