Major Fujifilm X-T3 and GFX100 Firmware Update Coming May/June

Let me first say things how they are.

Fujifilm NEVER announced any major firmware update for Fujifilm X-T3. The rumor of a Kaizen X-T3 update has been published here on FujiRumors a few months ago. And it was only a rumor.

Pressed by questions, Fujifilm managers later on just vaguely answered that such a firmware is “under consideration“.

Another thing is the huge update for Fujifilm GFX100. That firmware has been promised by Fujifilm back in February here. The main course of the meal: pixel shift multishot for 400 megapixel images.

Anyone salivating? ;)

Now back to the rumors.

According to our sources, both, the Fujifilm X-T3 as well as the Fujifilm GFX100 firmware updates should be released in the first half of 2020 (which May/June).

I asked if it could come out already in April, but my sources are sure it won’t be April.

And now a mandatory warning!

While I am 100% sure Fujifilm’s current plans are the ones I said above, after almost a decade of my life dedicated to Fujifilm blogging, I can tell you that if there is one thing, that can experience sudden plan changes at any time, then it’s firmware updates.

Fujifilm has a deadline, but especially with firmware updates, those can change quickly. The firmware will be released, only when ready.

And yet, the plan is to come out with both, X-T3 and GFX100 firmware within the first half of the year.

That’s it for now.

But if you want more, just keep us following us ;).

Fujifilm Manager Talks X-T4 and More: “We Want to Continue Fujifilm X-H Line. Fujifilm X-T3 Firmware Update under Consideration”

Mapcamera interviewed one of Japanese top managers Mr. Takashi Ueno. They talk about Fujifilm X-T4.

The interview is quite long and in Japanese, so for your convenience I have summed it up all in English down below.

And just in case it was needed, he confirms that there will be a Fujifilm X-H2, as FujiRumors always told you and never doubted for a second, even when the whole universe was saying differently.

In fact, I tell you this: at no point in time, Fujifilm ever considered stopping the X-H line. The line they canceled is another one, and we told you here.

The only thing: the Fujifilm X-H2 is still very far away.

Trust me guys… I know what I talk about, and if you want to be the first to know and be guided accurately through the Fujifilm world, all you need to do is to follow FujiRumors.

In fact, I am working on further explosive rumors. Some will totally surprise you, others will probably disappoint you. When time has come, when things are double checked, when green light is given, you will get it all!

And now… the interview.

Fujifilm Manager: “New Fujifilm X-T3 Firmware Update? Fuji’s Philosophy is Not to Abandon Products Once a Successor it Out”

Foto EmaTV had an 1+ hour long skype interview with Italian Fujifilm manager Riccardo Scotti. They talk about the Fujifilm X-T4.

Lucky you that I speak Italian, so down below is a summary.

Most important: he can’t say anything, but the way he formulated it, he made hopes for a major Fujifilm X-T3 firmware update. Read it down below.

Also, a little titbit nobody reported about. Do you know that little synch terminal cap that you (and me) keep losing? Well, looks like Fujifilm has improved the mechanism and it should stick better on the camera.

If you are interested, read more down below.

Fujifilm X-T3 Firmware Update in Spring/Summer will Bring “a Significant Number” of Fujifilm X-T4 features to X-T3

We just had to debunk a rumor, about an imminent arrivial of Fujifilm X-T3 firmware 4.0.

We confirm, the firmware is NOT coming soon, hence the screenshot you see in this post with the firmware update list, is 100% fake. Fujifilm is NOT currently editing the firmware page to release a new firmware very soon.

Here is the rumor we received from sources (thanks):

  a significant number of the new features in X-T3 successor will be introduced to X-T3 via firmware updates in the spring/summer

So, there will be eventually one, but the wait is definitely longer, and Fujifilm is NOT editing their firmware page right now, as the firmware has still to be developed. So no need to format your SD-Card, fellow X-T3 users ;).

But the day the firmware comes, what could be the features? Easy to upgrade should be:

  • digital image stabilization
  • new film simulations Classic Negative and Bleach Bypass
  • AF Range limiter, Clarity adjustment, handheld HDR feature
  • 240 fps

But that’s all just speculation from my side. Nobody knows the precise features yet.

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

FAKE: No Imminent Fujifilm X-T3 Firmware 4.0 Update Coming

The screenshot above showing a Fujifilm X-T3 firmware 4.0 has been sent to me by so many FR readers today, that I simply must take position on it, or my phone will keep up ringing with messages about this firmware.

The screenshot has been shared on fujirumors comments here (original post on dpreview, but since then been removed).

So let me say it clearly: there is NO imminent firmware 4.0 for Fujifilm X-T3 coming, as the screenshot suggest.

The firmware has still to be developed, so it’s impossible Fujifilm is setting up the firmware page for imminent release now. The firmware will come much later, could be as late as summer, and the features have not yet been decided.

I hope that was clear enough.

Look closely, and you’ll see down below how easily something like this is done ;)
