IT IS OVER: Fujifilm X-E4 is Fuji’s Last X-Trans IV Camera

Share

It’s over!

Not only the Fujifilm X-E4 will be the last X series camera to come this year, but according to our sources it will also be the last one to feature the excellent X-Trans IV sensor!

The 26MP X-Trans IV sensor was used first on the Fujifilm X-T3, followed by the X-T30, X-Pro3, X100V, X-T4, X-S10 and last but not least the X-E4.

It’s still a great sensor with top-notch technology. Backside illuminated, full phase detection coverage, copper wiring for faster sensor readout. It’s the same technology we find in flagship cameras of other brands such as the Sony Alpha a7R IV.

And the future?

Fujifilm managers already hinted multiple times like in this interview and also here, that the future will bring more megapixel to the X series.

Which sensor technology will be used? Will it really be that 43 Megapixel 8K stacked BSI sensor?

Questions, riddles and enigmas that FujiRumors is trying to answer for you.

All I can say for now is that, after an explosive start in 2021, Fuji’s current quietness is only apparent. Behind the scenes great things are planed, and if you’d like to get a secret glimpse into them, following FujiRumors is the way to go.

Fujifilm X-H2 in 2022 Will Be FIRST X Series Camera with New Sensor and Processor

Share

Here is what we know thanks to our rumors:

Now, since an illustrious Fujifilm managers talked about a breakthrough to achieve with Fujifilm X-H2, we all expected the Fujifilm X-H2 to feature a new sensor and processor.

But some readers contacted recently, asking me if maybe the first camera to introduce the new sensor and processor will be the X-Pro4, followed by the X-H2 later on.

And I understand where this comes from. It happened in the past that Fujifilm used the X-Pro line to introduce new platforms (X-Pro1 and X-Pro2).

Well, today I’d like to clarify that and say that the Fujifilm X-H2 will be Fujifilm’s first X series camera to introduce the new sensor and processor platform, and not the X-Pro4.

But attention: the Fujifilm X-H2 is still far away, and we will not get it until some point in 2022.

Fujifilm is crafting a monstrous camera and they are not allowed to fail. This means that they will take all the time they need to release real stunner, confident of the fact that in the meantime sales of X-T series, X-S10 and X100V cameras will keep up going strong, allowing Fujifilm not to hurry with the X-H2.

As one of our trusted sources said: it will be a long wait, but it will be well worth it.

Fujifilm GFX100S Technical Analysis: 4 Small Sensors Stitched Together, Banding Fixed also on GFX100 and More

Share

Jim Kasson continues his technical analysis of the Fujifilm GFX100S.

We already reported how he noticed that the Fujifilm GFX100S solved the PDAF banding issue.

He did check it on his original Fujifilm GFX100, and also there he says the banding has been fixed, as you can read here. FujiRumors already told you here that Fujifilm secretly fixed it via firmware update. Now Jim’s test finally confirms that.

Also, he confirms what we already told you back in 2017 here: the huge medium format GFX sensor is made of four small sensors stitched together. However, to be clear, this will not create any problem in your images.

UPDATE: as Jim explain more precisely at our wonderful GFX group here:

The GFX 100S sensor is not 4 small sensors stitched together. The lithography is stitched. It’s analogous to creating a pano by stitching. The result is on one piece of paper. In the GFX case it’s one piece of silicon.

Here is his most updated coverage:

BREAKING: No More Fujifilm X Series Camera Coming in 2021

Share

It’s not easy to believe, but it’s true: the Fujifilm X-E4 launched in January 2021 will be the one and only X series cameras that Fujifilm will launch in 2021. That’s according to our trusted sources.

As far as I can remember, it will be the first year ever, that Fujifilm launches one (1) Fujifilm X series camera only.

I can feel your disbelief, but trust me, it’s 100% accurate.

Personally I think that the combo between X-T4 and X-S10 is an excellent competitor in the market also for 2021, hence no hurry to come out with more cameras.

On the other hand, it’s great to see that Fujifilm is pushing on releasing new lenses so far in 2021 and it looks like also in 2022. That has often not been the case in the past few years, with Fujifilm gravitating towards pushing camera bodies instead of glass.

But which lenses will come?

Well, you can take a look at our rumored 2021/2022 Fujinon X Lens roadmap for a more comprehensive explanation. But since I know 99,999% of you prefer stuff ultra compact and short, here is the short list:

And let’s hope the list of lenses to come in 2021 will be even longer than the one we rumored.
