Fujifilm XF10 Announcement on July 5 and One More Fujifilm Camera Registered

Fujifilm XF10

2 weeks ago Fujifilm registered a camera, simliar in size to the Fujifilm X70, under the codename FF 180002

We investigated for you and found out that you should stop hoping for a real Fujifilm X70 successor. In fact, the camera will be called Fujifilm XF10 and have no selfie screen as well as no X-Trans sensor. Check out the rumor here.

Well, now nokishita spotted that, according to the same document, the planed release date for the Fujifilm XF10 will be July 5.

& One More – FF 180003

Now nokishita spotted one more digital camera registed with the codename FF 180003. It features bluetooth version 4.2. See the document here.

Fujifilm XF10 is Coming and it’s NOT the X70 Successor. No Selfie Screen, No X-Trans, No Party!

Fujifilm XF10

Just last week we published a rumor about a “camera, similar in size to the X70” that has been registered by Fujifilm.

Everybody was expecting it to be the Fujifilm X70 successor, maybe the Fujifilm X80, but I am very sorry to disappoint you all.

The camera will be called Fujifilm XF10, and… trust me ;) … it is NOT the X70 successor.

Why?

Well, according to our sources, the Fujifilm XF10 will lack of core features of the Fujifilm X70 such as the X-Trans sensor and… the selfie screen!!!

Considering the Fujifilm XF10 without selfie screen an X70 successor would be like considering an X-Pro3 without hybrid viewfinder the successor of the X-Pro2.

When will it be announced?

I don’t know, but consider this: the Fujifilm X-T100 has been registered 1.5 months before its announcement. If we can apply the same timing also to the Fujifilm XF10, then it means it could be announced end of June or July at earliest.

Here are the rumored specs of the Fujifilm XF10 according to our sources:

  • Fujifilm XF10
  • no X-Trans but 24MP Bayer sensor
  • no Selfie Screen
  • is NOT the Fujifilm X70 successor
  • Similar in size to X70 (as reported here)
  • Bluetooth and WiFi (as reported here)

Fujifilm X80: Why This hesitation, Fuji?

Let me say it clearly: I have no information about Fujifilm planing an X70 successor (called X70s or X80). Maybe Fujifilm is working on it, maybe not.

This is why I want to write a few lines to Fujifilm, who, as we know, reads this blog and your comments.

Listen, Fujifilm,

I know that the Fujifilm X70 was a huge flop.

But while it’s true that the Fujifilm X70 didn’t get the success it deserved, I think it should at least get the successor it deserves: the Fujifilm X80.

And here is what I want for the Fujifilm X80:

  • Selfie Screen
  • X-Trans (if 24MP X-Trans is technically possible on X80)
  • remove the flash and give us a small pop-up EVF like the Sony RX100 IV
  • No pop up EVF? Then give us an external electronic viewfinder option
  • new 18.5mm lens
  • faster AF with less hunting
  • built-in ND filter
  • more video features such as 4K and slow motion
  • faster buffer
  • and more

So please, Fujifilm, keep up developing this line seriously and give us a worthy X70 successor called Fujifilm X80. With the improvements I mentioned above, it will sell like hot cakes.

Old News You Might Have Missed (XF50mmF2 + Fuji Photokina Page) :: XF100-400 Review@photozone :: XF23mmF2 & More (miXed zone)

VERY OLD NEWS RELOADAD
XF50mmF2 WR + Fuji Photokina Page

Here on FujiRumors you are used to get the news as soon as it happens, in real-time… and quite often also before it actually happens.

But it can happen, that sometimes someone of you guys might miss a news. That’s why you should check out FujiRumors every day, and you’ll be sure to be first to know about Fuji’s present… and future ;)

So here are two news, that are currently “brand new” according to some, and I keep getting emails about. So I thought it might be time to share it again, so that I won’t get any emails anymore.

Photokina Page

The dedicated Fuji Photokina Page is an old News, shared by Fujifilm on August 25, and also shared on FujiRumors on the very same day. But it seems some might have missed it, since this new page has been launched along with the XF23mmF2 and X-A3. Of course I’ve shared this news in the Live Blogging. But here is the link again.

XF50mmF2 WR

In the X-A3 First Look on Youtube, Fuji Guy Billy mentioned a mysterious XF50mmF2 WR lens. Some people where really surprised by this, and thought Billy just announced a new lens. So time for a short recap: I’ve shared rumors about the 50mmF2 WR back in May here. The lens has the been officially shared in Fuji’s roadmap already back on July 7, Fuji even showed pics about it at an event, and the X-magazine already told us it will come in Spring 2017. So no… Fuji Guy Billy didn’t announce the XF50mmF2.

What’s more interesting, though, is that he mentions the expertise Fujfiilm has in making Medium Format lenses… who knows why ;)

XF100-400 Review at photozone. From the conclusions:

The Fujinon XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR impressed me quite a bit – not only in the lab but also in the real life. Honestly I was almost about to purchase the lens from the rental company (but I kept my sanity). The center sharpness is very high throughout the zoom range. The borders/corners are also very sharp between 100 and 300mm. Expect slightly softer corners at 400mm though (but then who cares here). Lateral CAs are not a real issue. Most users will keep image auto-correction activated thus neither distortions nor vignetting are issue in this case. The native characteristic isn’t quite as good here though. The quality of the bokeh is very decent for such a lens – at least technically – but don’t expect wonders regarding the depth-of-field at conventional focus distances.”

There were times, when the EISA Awards were just a joke!

There were so many categories, that every company could win several awards. I remember categories like “Best Connected Camera” (won by Samsung) and EISA was even able to distinguish between “professional“, “advanced” and “premium” cameras.

And quite frankly, it’s still mostly like this. There is an award for (almost) everyone.

But at least they dropped some of the non-sense categories… and I hope they will continue this way. Less categories and more real prestige to the winners!

That said, let’s take a look at this years’ winners.

Fujifilm won two awards, one goes to the Fujifilm X-Pro2 for the “Best Professional Compact System Camera” and another one goes to the XF100-400 for the “Best Compact System Zoom Lens“.

The Sony A6300 got the award as best “pro-sumer” CSC.

~1200mm~ Quick Review of the Fuji 2.0x Teleconverter with Fujinon XF100-400

Guest Post by bobfromguamFlickrWebsite

Preface:

About a year ago while hiking in Zion Utah, I came across a big horn sheep herd, I took some pictures with the Fuji 90mm at far too close a distance (around 4 meters), since then I’ve been hooked and keen on trying out wildlife photography as a pastime. This is what has led me into the point I am at now, with a Fuji 100-400mm a 2x teleconverter and a cropped sensor, equating to ≈ 1200mm

Equipment: Fuji X-Pro2, Fuji 100-400mm, Fuji 2x TC

Look and feel:

The combination is very easy to use, it’s still light, although too long for most bags, and wildlife begs for your camera and lens to be ready and set up, with hood on and camera setup it makes this a large, yet light package.

Durability:

Hiked through the mountains of Yellowstone Nation Park for 10 days, got rained on very hard (way to much for comfort) and the combination kept up with nary a problem in sight. It seems to be apt for the job.

Sharpness:

Well this is tricky, the Fuji 100-400 is sharp, but at the 400mm end it’s not as sharp, the setup although fantastic for shooting hand-held, isn’t bright enough to keep ISO down and shutter speeds up, not to mention swinging 1200mm is tricky at best and your movement is amplified greatly and you can overwork the Optical Stabilization quickly with quick jerks and movements, but I got really good results hand-held @1200mm’s without wearing myself out because of weight and size, I would call that a good give and take.

Image Stabilization:

It’s hands down amazing, it’s not magic, you can’t swing this combination and hope for the best, but I spoke with many photographers all of which were posting against something or had tripods, at the distances we were sharing my photos were more clear, and usually much closer.

Reach:

1200mm can be shot handheld with ease, and its much easier to fill up the frame at safer distances.

Auto Focus:

It works, and I know this sounds rather silly, but you have to spend a lot of money on the DSLR side to get 1200mm to autofocus (from what I know). It’s actually pretty fast and accurate in good light. It’s amazing to think that it is contrast based to be honest.

Conclusion:

I couldn’t be happier with this combination, I’m truly hoping that fuji comes out with a 300mm f2.8, I would buy that setup in a heart beat. As is though, Fuji is really moving quickly with filling in all the gaps with lenses, they are making wonderful optics and they truly work well and are a pleasure to use.
