Fujifilm X100VI Shipping Status: 75% of Orders Shipped (via FR) and Production Increase Completed in Summer

Fujifilm X100VI Shipping

I keep getting questions from fellow FR-readers about the shipping situation for the Fujifilm X100VI.

Well, I do not have any privileged insights. But I know what Fujifilm told us:

Other than that, I can’t say more.

But what I can do is to look up at the BHphoto preorders done via FujiRumors and give you some data.

DISCLAIMER: these are orders made using our Fujifilm X100VI affiliate links and as such they represent only the reality on FujiRumors, which is just an imperceptible drop of water in the vast ocean of X100VI preorders. This means that the shipment data we share today is not representative (nor probably anywhere near to realistic) for the worldwide shipment data.

With that said, let’s check it out.

According to our data I can say that so far BHphoto was able to ship out 75% (actually 75,05%) of all X100VI ordered via FujiRumors affiliate link. This means that 25% of you guys, who ordered via FujiRumors, are still waiting to get yours shipped.

Given the circumstances, 75% shipped X100VI cameras in 3 months is not so bad. Maybe FR-readers are also just well organised you guys made sure to quickly pre-order the X100VI right in the first minutes/hours after launch in order to be high on the waiting list.

Anyway, there are 25% of you guys waiting, but with the production increase incoming I hope that at least within summer you’ll get your camera.

The Fujifilm X100VI is a fantastic piece of gear and I am sure you’ll have lots of joy with it…

… and if not, you can always sell it overpriced on the web :D

After the Colossal Fujifilm X100VI Success: Fixed Lens Cameras to Storm the Market, but X100VI Will Rule Them All – and Here is Why!

The rumors about future fixed lens cameras from other brands are intensifying.

And I get it that other brands might be interested in launching their own fixed lens cameras considering that:

  • the Fujifilm X100VI is the best selling camera of the last 15 years at least
  • the Ricoh GRIII is so successful, that Ricoh decided to stop to take orders in a couple of countries
  • the Leica Q3 is enjoying great success too

Now, out of the three cameras mentioned above, the Fujifilm X100VI is the best selling camera by a very large margin.

But, if the rumors are accurate, there might soon me much more competition coming for the Fujifilm X100VI and certainly this motivated Fujifilm to rapidly increase production of the X100VI in order to sell as units as possible before more competition hits the market.

But as much as I welcome future competition, there are two crucial advantage that the Fujifilm X100VI has over other brands.

Fujifilm X100VI – A Massive Roundup: 40MP Sharper than 26MP (Spoiler: YES!) and Much More!

Don’t Panic ! :)

A Hello Kitty Fujifilm X100VI?

Well, Fujifilm has given us Hello Kitty Fujifilm camera in the past. :)

But don’t panic. As far as I know Fujifilm has no plans to launch such a version. But maybe you can ask fellow FR-reader Christian about it, since he shared it in the comments on FR here. But until I don’t hold this Hello Kitty thing in my own hands, I will trust this is a rendering

The true undertaking by Fujifilm is not launching new X100VI special versions, but deliver the regular ones that are on order and people are waiting for.

And if you are waiting for your copy too, here is a roundup for you.

Lots is covered. From the comprehensive review made by Pal2Tech to the take of PetaPixel and the Northrups on the X100VI, an in-depth review of Gordon from Cameralabs and also some channels that are currently smaller, but do a great service to the Fujifilm community, such as the one of Luca Petralia.

In the first video shared below, The Hybrid Shooter looks at the resolving power of the 40MP X100VI over the 26MP X100V. His conclusion: there is definitely a sharpness boost and added crop capability. So if sharper images and more cropping power is what you want, then the X100VI will do the job.

Major Firmware Update for X-T5, X-H2, X-S20 and X100VI – New Features Guide Released and Where is Reala Ace?

Fujifilm has just released major firmware updates for the Fujifilm X-T5, X-H2, X-S20 and X100VI.

As usual, there were many disappointed that REALA ACE is not part of the update. I try to reply them all in the various posts I made on social media, but I thought at this point it is best to highlight it again in this article, in the hope the message comes through this time.

Fujifilm promised two major firmware updates: one coming in spring and one in summer. And it’s the one in summer that will bring Reala Ace to other 5th generation cameras.

What will come and when dedicated article here.

So, I hope this helps to mitigate the disappointment that Reala Ace did not come this time around. ;)

Nonetheless, what we got today is already a significant update, so much so that for all the cameras mentioned above (except for X-S20), Fujifilm has released new features guide so that you can learn how to properly use the new features
