Inside the Fujifilm Factory with Lok: Assemblling the Fujifilm GFX100 and the Discontinued Fujifilm X-H1

Lok brings you inside the Fujifilm factory in Sendai, Japan.

The first thing he shows, is part of the assembly of the Fujifilm GFX100. Lok is surprised to see that so much of the assembly is done by hand.

You also see how meticulously every smallest dust particle is removed from the sensor and the lenses.

Lok then tries to apply the rubber texture to a Fujifilm X-H1, but what looks easy in skilled hands, turns out to much more difficult to do if you are not trained for it.

And if you wonder, why a Fujifilm X-H1, well, I believe the tour dates back to May/June 2019, when we already shared a couple of similar Fujifilm Sendai factory tour videos.

At that time, Fujifilm only stopped selling Fujifilm X-H1 body only, but they where still producing it, since it had a big revival pushed by the Fujifilm X-H1 + vertical grip combo deals.

Here on FujiRumors, the Fujifilm X-H1 even beat the Fujifilm X-T3 in terms of overall 2019 sales, thanks to this deal.

The production of Fujifilm X-H1 probably only ended in the second half of 2019.

You can see the full factory tour video below.

New Fujinon G Mount Roadmap

Fujifilm announced a new Fujinon G Mount roadmap with the following lenses

(1) Large-diameter standard lens “FUJINON Lens GF80mmF1.7 R WR”

  • The lens with the focal length of 80mm (equivalent to 63mm in the 35mm film format) and the maximum aperture of F1.7 is the brightest*** interchangeable lens for mirrorless digital cameras equipped with a large format sensor. It enables portraiture shooting with beautiful and creamy bokeh even in low light conditions.
  • It boasts astonishing image quality comparable to the professionally-acclaimed large diameter mid-telephoto lens “FUJINON Lens GF110mmF2 R LM WR,” but offers an even wide angle of view with a compact and lightweight body.

(2) Wide-angle prime lens “FUJINON Lens GF30mmF3.5 R WR”

  • The lens with the focal length of 30mm (equivalent to 24mm in the 35mm film format) is perfect for landscape photography. Offering ultra-high resolution capability despite its compact and lightweight body, the lens can bring out the full potential of the 102MP image sensor used in the GFX100.

Fujifilm X Summit February 4

Fujifilm just announced the Fujifilm X Summit at the House of Photography in London for February 4th. Expect new product announcements, as it was for the first Fujifilm X summit and the second Fujifilm X Summit. You can read the announcement of the 3rd Fujifilm X Summit at this Fujifilm page.

There are Brightin Star lenses for several mounts, and you can check them all out at the storefront page here.

As far as I can see, for Fujifilm X we have:

Let’s Enjoy the Mirrorless Price War – Last Day (Maybe) to Save $1,000 on Fujifilm X/GFX Gear

eXtended X/GFX Deals

In theory, this is the last day of Fujifilm X and GFX deals. I say in theory, as lately Fujifilm (and all other manufacturers), just keep up chronically discounting all their gear. See for example:

The drastically shrinking camera market triggered a battle for survivor, which is surely stressful for companies, but it’s mostly good for us customers, as this competition gives us innovation and the latest and greatest at a cheaper price than ever.

There is a downside, though, also for customers, as this inevitably means that our lovely gear loses value faster.

But if you were looking at your gear as an “investment“, then here is a tip: electronic goods are never good for that. You don’t even have time to unbox your brand new gear at home, that it already lost value.

Is there a thing in life that has only Pros? Well, let me know if there is, because I still haven’t found it. And so it is in the case of the deals. We can decide to be annoyed by the Cons, or just try to enjoy the Pros of it.

With that said, down below is the full list of deals, that will end on January 5th, but in some shape or form will come back surely later this year.
