The Print

Just a little leak for you guys to give you a better idea of the size of the upcoming Instax Square SQ10 prints.

Interesting to note, the original image (which I had to cover to keep the source of the leak anonymous) was printed in black and white. This can mean that there will be also a monochrome Instax Square film (like the monochrome Instax Mini film). But consider that the Instax SQ10 will be a hybrid digital/film camera, so it might be possible to transfer images taken with the camera to the Instax Square SQ10 printer, and print it from there, just like we do with a regular Instax Share Printer.

The big announcement party for the new GF 110mm F2, GF 23mm F2 and Instax Square will start soon (April 19).

I’m ready… feel free to join the Live Blogging here on FujiRumors :)

Trusted Sources Says Ultimate X-series APS-C Camera will Cost Around $2,000 – $3,000 (POLL)

The Ultimate X

Hey guys,

today I have an update for you regarding the ultimate Fujifilm X-series APS-C camera.

A trusted source told me that previous rumors about this camera were correct. So it confirmed that:

  • Fujifilm is working on the ultimate X-series camera
  • It will indeed be Fujifilm’s most expensive camera in the APS-C line-up
  • X-Trans sensor
  • It will be Fujifilm’s best APS-C camera for video work
  • The camera is still under development, so the final price has not yet been set
  • It will be based on the X-T design

But here is the thing:

The very first rumor I got (and shared) about the “Ultimate X” camera came from a new source here. And after confirmations from trusted source, we can say it was very accurate and gave us many correct hints, except one: the price.

The new source said it would cost $5,000, but the trusted source today said, that the current estimated price for the “Ultimate X” is between $2,000 and $3,000 (depending on which features Fujifilm decides to implement or not).

Do you know what this means?


  • Fujifilm displays our polls to the press – read here
  • Your feedback can, in some cases, influence decisions of the managment regarding future products, such as the monochrome X-Pro – read here
  • Fujifilm took note of our big request for the X-E3 and said after our pressure that they “are aware of the many X-E3 requests” – read here
  • Top Fujifilm Managers read and “love” FujiRumors – read here

and since…

  • we are in an early development stage of the Ultimate X

… we all should do our homework now, and let Fujifilm know, how we would like the Ultimate X to be.

This is why I will launch a poll, which I will keep quite general for now. I will only ask you if you would like Fujifilm to put simply everything they can into the camera and charge us $3,000 for it, or maybe take out a some features and charge $2,000 for it.

And of course, feel free to elaborate in the comments, which specs exactly this camera should have for the price you would pay.

Needless to say, take such long term rumors always with a grain of salt and stay tuned for the latest updates with FujiRumors on Facebook, RSS-feed and Twitter

Fujifilm X-E3 Will be Smaller than X-E2 (Trusted Source). What Other Design Changes Can We Expect?

Fujifilm X-E3 Design

A trusted source told me, that the Fujifilm X-E3 will have some “design changes”.

One of the changes of the Fujifilm X-E3 compared to its predecessors should be it’s size: it will be smaller.

I remind you that currently all 3 cameras in the X-E line-up, the Fujifilm X-E1, the X-E2 and the X-E2s, share the very same design.

Note that “smaller” does not necessarily mean “much smaller”. It could be a minor size difference, like the one between the X-T1 and X-T2… but maybe also a more significant one.

I will try to give you guys a more accurate indication soon.

In the meantime, keep up participating to Jano’s very well done X-E3 poll.

What else could change?

Maybe the combined shutter/ISO dial. A redesigned grip? A larger viewfinder? No more pop-up flash?

And another big question: tilt screen or not? I have to admit I am hearing something in this regard. But I also know that it’s a tiny bit too early to be 100% sure there won’t be last second changes with this. But I promise that once I’m 95%+ sure it will or will not have a tilt screen, I will share it here on FujiRumors.

The Fujifilm X-E3 will come this year, maybe this fall.

Do You Want to Discover the Big Secret? ;)

My birthday is approaching (April 17), and here are 4 reasons why you should join the FR charity auction.

  1. IT’S MAKES YOU COOLER :): You will get a high qualty X-T1 grip, leather strap and hot shoe cover, with the unique “FujiRumors” branding made by JBcameradesigns. Only you, and I, will have this special personalized items, and your X-T1 will look much cooler with it :). Total value of the items is of $110.
  2. IT’S GOOD FOR THE KIDS: The entire money you will pay for the items, will go to charity, to our FujiRumors friends KNGO in Cambodia, an NGO that gives access to free education to kids. We already collected $3,500 in the past for them with the fair trade X-shirts. You can read the story of the auction and of KNGO quickly here.
  3. IT MAKES ME HAPPY: Volunteering is something I practice since 2005, and I did everything, from cleaning toilets, to teaching, to distributing food to kids living (and working) in a gigantic waste disposal site. And if this auction goes well (and it is already doing great, we are at $155), I will be even more happy than I was before :)
  4. YOU WILL DISCOVER THE BIG SECRET: I will personally send you the item and ship it from my little village in the mountains. If you win the auction, you will get a package with my mailing adress on it and my full name. But I trust you will keep the secret and won’t pass it to Fujifilm.

Yep, the items are worth “only” $110, but sometimes we can take out that credit card and pay a bit more for a good cause. Again, thanks to those, who already bid :)
