EXCLUSIVE: Fujifilm X-T4 Announcement on February 26

Fujifilm X-T4

One rumor you are waiting impatiently for, is the final announcement date for the Fujifilm X-T4, which will not be February 4, when the Fujifilm X100V will be announced.

But before I share it, a BIG thanks to the new source, for passing us the date. You help me to keep the global Fujifilm community on fire. Feel free to keep it up. :)

And now the date:

The Fujifilm X-T4 will be announced on February 26!

I know there is the Fujifilm X summit on Februrary 4, but the Fujifilm X-T4 announcement with full specs, details and pre-orders should not happen there.

The good news:

I did check my school calender, and the announcement falls right in the middle of my week of holiday, hence I will have the time to work full power and non stop for you here on FujiRumors.

So mark this date, tell your fiends, share the news, and let’s have an epic Fujifilm X-T4 live blogging party on February 26, here on FujiRumors.

Fujifilm X100V with old NP-W126S Battery and Fujifilm X-T4 with Completely New Battery

Hey folks,

I just finished a dinner with friends, but before I go to bed, I thought I could publish a rumor that has just been confirmed to me, and answers one of the questions you had regarding the Fujifilm X100V.

Some of you asked in the comments to previous rumors, if the Fujifilm X100V will have the brand new battery of the Fujifilm X-T4.

Well, according to our sources, the Fujifilm X100V will have the classic old Fujifilm NP-W126S battery.

So, the brand new battery (which I remind will not even be the GFX NP-T125 battery) will be reserved for the Fujifilm X-T4 only, and of course only later find its way to future camera bodies.

Fujifilm X-T4 and Fujifilm X100V will NOT Be Announced on the Same Day

Fellow FR readers,

I know, there is the Fujifilm X summit on Februray 4 (with live stream on FujiRumors).

But if you were hoping for the Fujifilm X-T4 announcement, then get ready to be disappointed.

The Fujifilm X-T4 announcement, with full specs and details, will not happen on February 4.

I have the date, given to me recently, and I will share it soon.

TO THE SOURCE: I just make quickly my mandatory checks. But even if not double confirmed, I trust you, and if no answer comes from trusted sources soon, I will share anyway.

Fujifilm X-T4 and X100V will NOT Come January 23 along with Fujifilm X-T200 and GF45-100mmF4

We have just reported about the GF45-100 and Fujifilm X-T200 leaks.

The date for the announcement is January 23.

But I want to make clear, that the Fujifilm X-T4 and Fujifilm X100V will NOT be announced on January 23. The announcement will happen later.

FujiRumors told you already in December (!!!) that the Fujifilm X100V will be announced in February.

The date leaked is February 4. If both, the X100V and X-T4 will be announced there, or there will be different announcements, I will work and let you know soon.

Oh My Gosh: I Will Assist Photographing My First Wedding – Should I Panic, or Just Buy Fujifilm X-T4 and More Lenses?

Hey folks,

This morning I woke up, with a message from one of my best friends, who marries in June.

The message said:

Hey Pat. Would you mind take your camera gear at the wedding? We do have an official photographer, but it would be nice if you can take some images, too. Also, the photographer will stay only until dinner. So if you could grab images of the late night dance party…

And you bet, I accepted, because isn’t there a better excuse to buy new gear, than to help to photograph the wedding of your best friend? :D

Now, I want to do things right for one of the most important days in the life of my friend.

So here are a couple of things I need to do:

  • Don’t Annoy the Photographer

Never be in the way of the photographer. I don’t want to be one of those annoying guest jumping into his frame to get an image. We pay those guys, so that we can enjoy the moment, and later have some cool shots to remember forever.

But the photographer can’t be everywhere at all time, so I will try to be there, where he is not, and maybe I’ll get some nice shots ;).

But overall my philosphoy:

Whatever the official Photographer does, he will do it much better than me. So stay out of his way. My focus is on the night shots, when he is gone.

  • Get a Beer with the official Photographer

I am a man on a mission: convert people to Fujifilm. So you can bet I’ll grab the photographer in one of his rare moments of rest, and try to convert him to the Fuji side of life!

  • It’s GAS Time

And now comes the gear part. And for that, I will make shameless use of FujiRumors for private reasons, and ask all of you guys, what you recommend me to do.

Maybe I could go along with what I own already, but I believe I need a gear upgrade.

Here is what I am considering to do.

  • Upgrade my Camera

I could need a low light autofocus boost over my X-E3, hence I am either considering the Fujifilm X-T3, Fujifilm X-Pro3 or even the Fujifilm X-T4.

  • X-Pro3 – PROS: Looks awesome / CONS: tilt screen allows to shoot only from the hip, not from above, which might come in handy on the dacing floor
  • X-T3 – PROS: most affordable option (I can find deals or second hand offers) / CONS: Won’t probably have latest features and AF performance of X-T4
  • X-T4 – PROS: latest and greatest AF performance and features / CONS: pay full price

At the moment I am tending towards getting the Fujifilm X-T4.

  • More Lenses

My current fastest lens options with autofocus are the Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 and XF 35mm f/1.4. But I believe I need more.

I am considering to get two more lenses: the Fujinon XF16mm f/1.4 for some wide shots on the dancing floor, and the XF56mmf/1.2.

These four fast primes should cover my needs properly.

What do you think, am I good to go, or do I need something else? Maybe one of those nice f/2.8 zooms?

  • Settings Tips Anyone?

Once I have the new gear, I will go out and practice to shoot in similar low light dancing scenarios. I need to see what works and what not, as I am not very familiar with those kinds of shots, as you can see from my instagram.

But I know many of you are so much more experienced than me, so if somebody of you can give me tips on settings, feel free to drop them down below in the comments.

  • It ain’t free, so something has to go

To get all this new goodness, something probably has go.

Hence I could soon put my X-T1 on sale, the camera that took my favorite image, and which story I told you here (I got it after I destroyed my X-E2).

As far as lenses go, I think I’ll have to let go the Fujinon XF 18-55 and XF 55-200, and stay with my XF 18-135 only. Letting those lenses go isn’t easy. Selling that gear will help to mitigate internal discussions with my wife when I get the new one ;).

And if you want, and have the possibility, you are always free to make a micro-donation on Patreon. Even just $1 or $2 a month can help a lot, if many do it. Mostly it will allow me to cover the costs of the site… but if the support is big, well, then maybe also to get new gear ;).

  • You Vote…

Down below are a couple of surveys, where you can offer your camera and lens suggestions also in form of a vote.

Also, I will try to get permission from my friend to share some images on my instagram, so that I can share the results .´

In addition to the XF35mmf/1.4 and XF23mmf/1.4, FujiRumors should buy...

Fujifilm X-T4 Coming with Completely New Battery – EXCLUSIVE

Fujifilm X-T4

FujiRumors already told you about the “improved battery life” on the Fujifilm X-T4.

Some might think that’s an “obvious” rumor, but if you think so, you are evidently not familiar at all with the Fujifilm X system.

You need to know:

  • it’s since January 2012 (X-Pro1 announcement), that Fujifilm uses the same NP-W126 battery
  • the ancient and glorious Fujifilm X-T1 and X-E1 had a CIPA rated battery life of 350 shots (hence better than X-T2 !!!)
  • there was the battery “S” upgrade, for better heat management (allowing longer video recording), but not better battery life
  • the only improvement we saw in 8 years (!!!) of Fujifilm X MILC system, was the minor jump from 340 shots (X-T2) to 390 shots (X-T3) thanks to the more energy efficient processor

Enough of Fujifilm battery culture… let’s go to the fun part now! :)

Some FR readers kindly asked me if I can be more precise and define “improved battery life” better.

Well, let me try… how about this:

  • the Fujifilm X-T4 will have a completely new (!!!) battery. And with “new” I mean it won’t be the NP-W126 and not even the GFX NP-T125 battery.

Finally, 8 years after the X-Pro1 and 6 years after the original Fujifilm X-T1, we finally get a serious major battery life boost.

And to all avid FujiRumors addicts out there: just relax, there will be lots more breaking rumors coming ;).

Fujifilm X-T4 G.A.S? These Fujifilm X-T3 Images will Help You to Resist to it ;)

Oscar Wilde once said:

The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it

But today we will prove him wrong.

We will display a series of stunning X-T3, X-T2 and X-T20 images, and show to Oscar that we don’t need a Fujifilm X-T4 to create stunning imagery.

Because no specs on the world can replace your feeling… and it’s a known fact, that feeling is the origin of your creativity and intuition.

30 Seconds Story of my Favorite Image

In the spirit of this post, do you want to hear the story behind my all time favorite image?

If you have 30 seconds… here it is:

I was in Cambodia (for my fair trade Fuji X T-shirts project), walking through an abandoned Casino in Bokor, with one of my very best friends.

I borrowed her my Fujifilm X-T1 camera, and she took a couple of snapshots.

At some point I saw some kids playing hide and seek in the building.

One of them hide behind a wall, waiting for his little friends to come up the stairs.

I noticed all this, and told to my friend “give me the X-T1, and I’ll grab the killer shot“.

She gave it to me, I placed myself in the right position… and waited.

And then it happened: the hiding kid leaned out beyond the wall, then suddenly watched down the stairs to see where his friends are. In that moment, I was ready and took the image.

I came home, printed it, and now I have it big on my wall.

And it was taken with a Fujifilm X-T1.

Call it luck, call it intuition. Whatever it was. It was nothing you can read on any specs paper.

So yes, let’s be happy about the Fujifilm X-T4, but also not forget, that what we own now, is plenty of good enough.

In the spirit of this post, enjoy the X-T image roundup below.

NEW SOURCE: Fujifilm X-T4 with Improved Battery Life and EVF (Unconfirmed)

Fujifilm X Shooter rejoices at the Rumor of Improved Battery Life on Fujifilm X-T4
Fujifilm X Shooter rejoices at the rumor of improved battery life on Fujifilm X-T4

Fujifilm X-T4

Ok guys,

First off I want you take this information with a grain of salt, as it comes from an anonymous source with nickname (thanks for sharing).

If I will be able to confirm any of the information, I will let you know.

Here is what the new source told us:

  • Name: Fujifilm X-T4
  • Improved battery life
  • best in class EVF
  • IBIS

Except for IBIS, I can’t confirm anything for now.

Now, on FR we are proud to share about 60 rumors a year with a 90+% accuracy.

But a significant part of this community also asked me to be less conservative, take more risks, and share more anonymous/new source rumors I get, even if that would mean maybe falling back to a 70% accuracy.

I am still rather reluctant to do so, but today I try to follow your advice, and share this rumor, even if it’s unconfirmed until now. But this will be more of an exception, as I want to keep my hit rate very high.

And who knows, even our long time trusted sources started as new sources. So let’s hope that todays’ source will be generous with the FR community, and share further details in future.

To the source: thanks a TON for the nickname! Makes things easier. Regarding X100V, I am working on that rumor, and will post an update soon.

And just out of curiosity, I thought I let you vote on what you believe will be the name of the Fujifilm X-T3 successor.

The Fujifilm X-T3 successor will be called...

Fujifilm X-T4, X100V and X-T200 Rumor Recap

We have broken a couple of rumors, and now it’s time for a recap.

And it’s not yet over ;).

So make sure to follow FujiRumors on Facebook, Flipboard, RSS-feed, Twitter, Youtube and Instagram

Fujifilm X-T4

After our recent leaks we know:

  • shipping in March
  • not to be announced in January, but later
  • IBIS

All the rest, the 6K60P, the anamorphic ratio and all the rest, comes from a source in our Fujifilm X-T group, who also said X-T4 would come in late 2020. That’s wrong, so take the rest with a grain of salt too.

All Fujifilm X-T4 rumors here.

Fujifilm X100V

The oldest in the bunch to be rumored, already since months:

  • announcement in February
  • new lens (still 23mm)
  • it will NOT have the X-Pro3 hidden screen

All Fujifilm X100V rumors here.

Fujifilm X-T200

Fujifilm X-T4 Registered and Coming with IBIS in March, and About that 6K60p Video Rumor

Fujifilm X-T4

FujiRumors is (as usual) the first and only website, who told you about the surprising Fujifilm X-T3 successor announcement (usually Fujifilm waits 2 years to refresh it, but this time they waited only 1.5 years)

Now it’s time to continue the leaks :).

I did wait to get it tripled checked, and it’s done now, so here it is: the soon to come Fujifilm X-T4 (or whatever Fuji is going to call it), will have IBIS!

This does not come surprising, though, as Fujifilm managers repeatedly said, that they are working on making the IBIS unit smaller, so that they can fit it into other (not X-H) X series cameras.

The mission has been accomplished. IBIS is now going to be part of more Fujifilm X series camera lines!

And now one more thing.

Do you remember when a member of our massive Fujifilm X-T group shared the Fujifilm X-T4 rumor with the following specs? The member claimed:

  • X-T4 with IBIS
  • expect a T4 about 1/3 of an inch thicker, and about 5-6oz heavier
  • On a good note expect 6k60 and 10bit internal
  • anamorphic ratio
  • fully articulating flippy…essentially an S1H but APSc with Fuji color and obviously much smaller
  • release end of 2020

Note that he rumored it for “end of 2020”, but this is definitely wrong. Now, I don’t want to say that also the 6K video and all other specs are wrong, but the one I can verify now, is 100% wrong.

So, take that rumored specs list with a grain of salt for now.
