Original Post

Three X-series cameras have been registered at the Chinese radio wave authentication institution (where all WiFi capable devices have to be registered).

  • X-MF1
  • X-T2
  • X-T2 Pro

The fact that these cameras have now been registered, means that the announcement (not release) could be imminitent (spring/early summer)

One big surprise is the X-T2 Pro. It could indicate that Fuji will release 2 different X-T2 bodies. Maybe the X-T2 Pro could be slightly larger and fit a bigger/better battery. Also the heat dissipation would be easier on a larger body, eliminating overheating issues while shooting 4K video.

Do you think it’s a smart move to offer two different bodies?

The other huge surprised is the X-MF1, which really sounds like the Medium Format camera. I wasn’t expecting it to come so fast. But competitors are not sleeping and Fujifilm might have decided to step on the gas.

NOTE: The original EXCEL file has been removed, but the FR-reader, who passed me the link (thanks) saved it and send it to me. For now I’ll share a screenshot. I’ll share the full File on my dropbox next.

stay tuned,
