When most photographers think of shooting sports, they think of 400mm glass on the 50 yard line. When I think of sports, I think about ultra-wide, ultra close. That said, any sporting event involves fast moving action and the need for equipment that can both quickly respond, and take a bit of abuse. These things were on my mind when I covered The Race of Gentlemen this year.

XPRO7720

Once a year, tattooed and heavily bearded men (and a few women) gather in Wildwood, New Jersey, and take over a section of the beach. With beer on tap, loud music, and louder motorcycles and cars, this motley crew waits for the tide to recede and then grinds up the sand racing antique vehicles down a quarter-mile. Known as The Race of Gentlemen, the event is a celebration of a time long passed.

Fujifilm Medium Format

this is a fujirumor.com mock-up based on the Contax N1 
the name “X-XL” is also just a mere invention of mine… but if Fuji likes the idea, just take it :-)

Medium Format Fuji :: The Design

Did I ever tell you that every rumor, especially the ones that come from New or Anonymous sources, has to be taken with a grain of salt? And you should have a bit of salt ready this time, because this rumor comes from a brand new source I had the pleasure to exchange some emails (thanks :-) ).

The New Source possibly shared the answer to one of our Top 7 Medium Format Fujifilm Questions: Will the Medium Format Fuji have a Rangefinder or DSLR design?

According to the New Source, the Medium Format Fujifilm Camera will have a DSLR shape.

End of the Rumor

If true, then we can expect a camera with centered Viewfinder, just like the Digital Mirrorless Medium Format Hasselblad X1D… and the Fujfilm X-T2 of course.

And since the DSLR styled X-T1 is by far Fuji’s most successful camera (and also the X-T10 sold better than the X-E2), I guess Fujifilm simply decided to go for the form-factor that was the best selling so far.

So high time to launch the rumored Fujifilm Medium Format Camera Specs list:

Source Right in The Past

Lucky Fujifilm :: 24MP X-TransIII Sensors Produced before Kumamoto Earthquake :: No Significant X-T2 Shipping Delay :-)

Many times we X-shooters had to wait more than expected for X-gear to ship… and sometimes the waiting was just ridiculously long, just like in case of the X100S, announced in January, but only widely available in October.

But sometimes…

sometimes even X-shooters are lucky. And in this case the good news comes from mirrorlessrumors.

They say that many companies are delaying the launch and shipping of their products for at least 4 months, due to the Kumamoto earthquake… but not Fujifilm:

And a lucky note on Fuji: They ordered a big lot of the X-T2 sensors made by Sony long before the Kumamoto earthquake. And lucky enough Sony produced most of those sensors before the shutdown in April. Fuji could ship the new X-T2 already now but they prefered to start shipping the cameras in September to reduce the production gab between this first batch of cameras and the second batch that is affected by Sony’s production delay.

Good news, at least for us Fujifilm aficionados. And this might also explain why some stores initially marked the X-T2 as available in August (actually some still say this way), while they now changed to September 8.
