Fujifilm Patent Shows New Camera Interface (Dual LCD Screen) but it’s the One of the Fujifilm X-T200

A Fujifilm patent now surfaced on the web, showing an LCD screen that has a split view for film simulations.

As dclife writes (google translated):

FUJIFILM has registered a design that enables image division on the rear monitor screen of the camera. The border of the divided screen can be changed by swiping. Basically, it seems that the colors of the film simulation can be compared.

[…] I think that you can use it in various ways, but there is a figure in which the film simulation PROVIA and Velvia are split and displayed, and the area is changed by swiping.

[…] I don’t know if this design will be put to practical use in the future, but the size of the rear monitor of the current “X-T4” is 3.0 type, and I am wondering how easy it is to use with this monitor size.

Well, looks like the future already happened, as this is the LCD screen of the Fujifilm X-T200 (see Fuji Guys video below starting from 2:41).

I wonder how this could even become news, but hey, FujiRumors is here to give you guys clarity ;).

DPReview Entry Level Shootout: Fujifilm X-T200 vs Sony A6100 vs Canon EOS M50

DPReviewTV compares the Fujifilm X-T200 with the Sony A6100 and the Canon EOS M50.

Here are their findings:

Handling

  1. EOS M50: nice quality camera. Best grip. Wonderful touch screen interface
  2. X-T200: beautiful. Very customizable. Feels cheap holding in the hands. No AF-ON button. Handles well, grip improved
  3. A6100: same old design

Display

  1. X-T200: similar EVF like Canon. 16:9 aspect ration LCD
  2. EOS M50: best EVF. Fully articulating screen
  3. A6100: too low res viewfinder. Fully articulating screen would have been better

Image Quality

  1. X-T200: easy win. modern sensor. Very good ISO performance. Great Fujifilm JPEG. Fastest sensor scan rate
  2. A6100: better high ISO than Canon. Rolling shutter issue
  3. EOS M50: oldest sensor. 24MP. Slow scan rate

Autofocus

  1. A6100: easy win. Sony’s eye and face AF is fantastic. Great tracking. Intuitive to use. Highest hit rate. You get the same advanced AF as their Pro bodies
  2. EOS M50: dual pixel AF. Great touch screen interface. Sticky tracking
  3. X-T200: much better than X-T100. But other cameras have a bit better interface. X-T200 has very short buffer

Video

  1. X-T200: 16:9 flippy screen. You can monitor audio via USB-C adapter. Beautiful 4K and nice slow motion
  2. A6100: best AF, usable 4K. Pretty severe rolling shutter. Screen tilt upwards. If you use microphone on hot shoe, it blocks the screen
  3. EOS M50: 4K has huge crop and no longer dual pixel AF

Lenses

  1. X-T200: Fujifilm continues to dominate in having the best and most lenses available. No big third party support, though. But probably there is not really the need for it. It’s hard for third party manufacturers to come and compete with a company, who makes very affordable zooms, affordable primes like the XC 35mm f/2, kit lenses are often better then some of the Pro lenses other manufacturers make. Lots of Pro lenses, too
  2. EOS M50: opposite of Sony. No higher end lenses. You need an adapter and adapt EF lenses. Not much third party support. Canon has affordable good quality lenses for users starting out. The kit lens is way better than the Sony kit lens
  3. Sony: lots of third party support. Excellent and expensive E mount lenses. But this is an entry level camera, and needs affordable lenses. Sony lacks of such lenses

Conclusion

  1. X-T200: well deserved win. Great AF, excellent video, sexy body, very customizable, lenses, etc. It fixes all the issues they had with the X-T100
  2. EOS M50: affordable, capable, versatile
  3. A6100: lack of lenses. Not sexy cameras. Autofocus is great

This Guy Fine Tuned his Classic Chrome Film Simulation to Get Bleach Bypass on his Fujifilm X-T2

According to our rumors, the Fujifilm X-T4 will introduce a new film simulation called “bleach bypass“.

But Elio could not wait for that one, and tried to create his own bleach bypass film simulation by fine tuning Classic Chrome film simulation on his Fujifilm X-T2 already back in 2018!

it starts with the fantastic Classic Chrome simulation to take advantage of its contrast and soft colors.

Bleach bypass is a technique from traditional film industry, characterized by hard contrast and low saturation. One movie that uses bleach bypass extensively is Saving Private Ryan.

Now, how close Elio’s Bleach Bypass version will be to the real and final new bleach bypass film simulation introduced in the Fujifilm X-T4, we will only know on February 25/26, when the Fujifilm X-T4 will be announced.

You can read all the settings and see the results at elio.blog.

The Fujifilm X-T4 will be announced February 25/26 (depending on your time zone here)

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.
