Share

THE ANNOUNCEMENT TIME

Finally, after 20 months (!!!) from the first Medium Format rumor here, the GFX will present itself to the world in its final vest… along with other big shots like the X100F, X-T20 and XF50/2.

I tell you, it was a very long and strenous rumor marathon, but the best has yet to come… and a mix of excitiment and caffeine is pushing me to the arguably most awesome Fujifilm announcement ever here on FR.

It will happen on January 19 at the usual time, so around 06:00-07:00 AM in Berlin (00:00-01:00 AM in New York).

I’m 100% focussed and highly motivated for the terrific live blogging tomorrow: I’ve delegated my mother to take care of my dog, my Moka is in permanent operation already and I’ve organized everything so that I don’t have to work at school.

So all you have to do is to sit down, refresh FujiRumors, and enjoy the continuous live updates covering non stop and in real-time the announcement on January 19… and beyond!

Will FujiRumors Buy the Fujifilm GFX?

Now, I’m truely happy for everybody, who can afford a Fujifilm GFX. I’ve tried everything to raise some money for that wonderful beast, too, but I must say that the GFX is simply something I can’t currently afford… and below you can see what my banker thinks about it.

But I hope that maybe one day the Fujifilm X-E3 will mitigate my pain for not getting the X-Pro2, X-T2, X-T20 and GFX.

A Coffee Maybe?

Heart, Soul and Passion are prerequisites to run FujiRumors, but sadly not enough to keep this blog open. At the end of the day, I also have to pay the bills generated by this site.

So, if you appreciate my work here on FujiRumors, then, on January 19, you have the opportunity to support FujiRumors at absolutely no (!!) extra costs for you, simply by pre-ordering your gear using the FujiRumors links to BHphoto, AmazonUS, Adorama & Co. Your support will allow me to keep this little space in the world wide web open… and also to cover my growing need for coffee ;).

With all that said, now just relax and let me do the job. Simply stay tuned on FujiRumors, and I will provide you every information available on the web regarding the new Fuji gear.

We are going to have a Great Week :)

LEAKED :: Fujifilm XF50mmF2 WR Press Images :: UPDATE – MESSAGE TO ANONYMOUS SOURCE

Share

These are the official press images of the XF50mmF2 WR that will be announced along with the Fujifilm GFX, X100F and X-T20 on January 19. Looks like the one I photographed this fall at photokina (where you can see it also side by side with the 35mmF2) with the same 46mm filter thread.

UPDATE: Message to Anonymous Source with nick name: Thanks for letting me know about the ISO value setting change via command dial (which will probably come to the X-Pro2, too), and also the image you sent me. If you want, you can specify what I can share or not on FujiRumors. If you don’t specify, I’ll assume that I have permission to share on FujiRumors. And if you want to talk directly to me, you can contact me (also via fake email) at fujirumor@gmail.com. Thanks again for sharing :)

Fujifilm GFX :: The True Story About a Secret Meeting (and Test) That Convinced Fujifilm to Go Medium Format

Share

A Secret Meeting

Today I would like to share with you an insight story, about the probably decisive moment, that convinced Fujifilm to go Medium Format.

I’ve been told this story back in mid 2015 by a trusted source while chatting on Skype, soon after my first Medium Format rumor. Today I got an email from the very same source, who told me that I’m free to share the story with all of you guys… and I’m happy to do that right now :-)

For this story, we have to go back to sometimes in 2014.

Imagine the scene:

A confidential meeting amongst the most important people at Fujifilm. The big question in the room: should we go Medium Format?

At that time, Fujifilm was looking closely at the Medium Format Pentax 645z. The camera sold better than Pentax expected, and many reviews praised it. TheCameraStoreTV said back in 2014 about the Pentax 645z here, that it has the best IQ for stills they have ever seen.

But TCSTV also made a final and important remark: the newest Full Frame sensors, like the one on the Nikon D810, could narrow the IQ gap between FF and MF.

So was it worth for Fujifilm to go Medium Format?

The Decisive Test

Fujifilm decided to make a test, that will help them to decide if Medium Format will have a future or not. And it was as simple as that:

Fujifilm took a RAW file of the Medium Format Pentax 645z and processed it using their unique image X processing engine. And guess what? The image quality Fujifilm got out of the Pentax RAW file was already superior to the original Pentax image simply by applying their own image processing algorithm.

This realization laid the foundation for Fujifilm’s decision to go Medium Format… but it was not enough!

Fujifilm wanted more

A better processing engine was not enough for Fujifilm…

They also decided to make some hardware related tweaks to the Medium Format sensor. So they customized the microlenses in front of the sensor and optimized the silicon process. This will allow Fujifilm to improve the overall image quality even more.

At the end of the day, Fujifilm’s magic trinity (processorcustomized MF sensor – GF lenses) will very likely raise quite a bit the bar for Medium Format 33×44 sensors… and the gap to Full Frame should be more significant again. But to be sure of that, we have to wait and see how that GFX beast performs in real life. And it’s not a long wait anymore… January 19 is just around the corner… and I’m ready for the live blogging ;)

So this is the true behind the scenes story, that convinced Fujifilm to go Medium Format. And very soon, a few years after that test, the Fujifilm GFX will finally be reality.

stay tuned, fellow X-shooters :)
