Fujifilm X-E3: “Some New Technologies not Previously Seen on Any other Fujifilm Camera“ (Trusted source)

Hey guys… hope your doing absolutely fantasitc :) !

Today I come into your life with a rumor and a teaser :)

The Rumor

A trusted source (thanks a lot), dropped me this message:

The ‘new’ X-E3 will share some new technologies not previously seen on any of the other Fujifilm cameras

The Teaser

I’m working on it, and I think I know at least 1 of these new technologies (a hardware based feature). Just give me the time to collect all permissions needed from sources to share it on FR, and you will read it on FR (shouldn’t take long).

Nope. I will not unveil anything privately via email. I will publish it on FujiRumors, so it will be very democratic: everybody will know at the same time :) .

But so far, I know only of 1 new feature. Our trusted source, though, said “some” new technologies. At this point thanks again to the trusted source for the hint… now I know I have still some homework to do :) .

have a Great Day!

Fujifilm X-T2 Successor to be Called Fujifilm X-T2S

Fujifilm X-T2s - the Successor of the Fujifilm X-T2

Fujifilm X-T2s – the Successor of the Fujifilm X-T2

Fujifilm X-T2s

Ok guys… here is another nice rumor for you.

I would like to inform you that the successor of the Fujifilm X-T2 will be called Fujifilm X-T2s .

At this point, some of you might remember, when I once said that Fujifilm will release an X-Pro1s, which evidently never materialized. Fujifilm even had working prototypes of it, as they officially showed here, but then they scratched the concept in the last second, skipped it, and waited for the X-Pro2 to be ready.

At this stage, though, I don’t think the X-T2s will have the same fate of the X-Pro1s. Fujifilm seems very convinced of the project, and this makes me very confident to share it here on FujiRumors.

Now, I like to imagine many of you guys somewhere on holidays, relaxing with a beer on a beach or admiring a great panorama from the top of a mountain. And I really do not want to disturb you too much.

But I have the feeling that it could be worth to tune into FujiRumors now and then also from your holidays in the next couple of weeks. Sure, I’m aware that no rumor on earth can beat a good beer on the beach, but I’m working hard to try to give you a little fun time also here on FujiRumors ;) .

Fujifilm X-E3: No Tilt Screen (Poll – Dealbreaker?)

Ok… despite knowing that Fujifilm can change plans rather quickly, I feel pretty confident to announce, that the Fujifilm X-E3 will not have a tilt screen.

So, Fujifilm remains loyal to their philosophy to keep the tilt screen out of their rangefinder styled cameras.

My tilt-experience?

I might use the tilt-screen on my Fujifilm X-T1 maybe only in 5% of the images I take, but in those 5% tilting the screen makes my life a lot easier. So overall a tilt screen on the X-E3 would be something “nice to have” for me.

Based on the feedback of you guys in previous X-E3 rumors, and especially based on Jano’s huge work and X-E3 poll here , there are other (more or less) “nice to have” features… and of course some won’t be part of the Fujifilm X-E3:

  • dual UHS-II SD-card slot
  • weather sealing
  • 4K video
  • tilt screen
  • touch screen
  • AF-C Custom Settings presets
  • Bigger EVF
  • Dual-function ISO Dial
  • Joystick
  • Front Command Dial
  • IBIS

Jano has already made a brilliant work with his X-E3 polls, so all you have to do is to check out this article, where he shares the detailed X-E3 statistics as well as his evaluation of the results.

Here on FR today, we will only quickly focus on the tilt screen. Would the lack of it be a dealbreaker for you? Feel free to vote the poll below.

Fujifilm X-E3 without Tilt Screen... dealbreaker?
