X-pert corner special + live-blogging

There will be a lot of press releases on October 18th all over the web, but if you really want to discover more about the new Fuji cameras, you should follow Fujirumors and read Rico’s exclusive first look! It should happen at about 04:30 London time! So Europeans should wake up early and US citizens stay up until late!… and there is hope for X100 photographers to finally get their firmware update!!! But this time I don’t believe it until I see it available for download at Fuji’s global site ;).

Spread the word via google+, facebook and twitter. The X-E2 will be unveiled here at Fujirumors this Friday!

have a great day
Patrick

X-M1: $72 price drop at AmazonUS!

If you have read for example Rico’s X-M1 vs X-A1 shootout here and here or the riflessifotografici first look at the X-A1 here you’ll agree that the X-M1 with X-Trans sensor is the better camera in terms of image quality compared to the X-A1. But is it also the better deal?

Well, if the price is the reason that kept you from choosing the X-M1 over the X-A1, check out the latest AmazonUS deal on the X-M1! You save $72 on the stylish brown version or save $30 on the black one!

Now the gap between the X-A1 and the (brown) X-M1 is of $128. This is definitely a good move to make the X-M1 more attractive as Fuji X-series entry-level camera. Do you wanna switch the the X-Trans X-series (and also finally enjoy the amazing Fujinon lenses)? Then check this deal out here.

 photo firstlook_zpsafad789a.jpg

First of all, thanks to all sources, new, anonymous and trusted once who supported Fujirumors in these months. Thanks to you it isn’t a mystery anymore which cameras Fuji will launch on October 18 (X-E2/XQ1). But stay tuned for Rico’s first look in the next X-pert corner special on Friday 18th… there is still a lot to discover about the new X-cameras! The announcement should be at 00:30 NY-time, but I’m trying to confirm it with trusted sources! I’m looking forward to more rumors from you ;-)!

Rico just told me he’ll post a first look on a “new X-mount camera” on Friday. Now, if we look at the rumors shared on Fujirumors I’ve almost no doubts that it will be the X-E2.

Stay tuned via facebook, twitter and RSS feed and follow us October 18th!

Hi guys,

I’ve done my homework and here is an update about the X-E2 :)!

A long time trusted source just confirmed the rumors previously posted on FR… and told me more.

1) the WiFi on the X-E2 will have more options as the WiFi on the X-M1 (what option would you like to have?).
2) it will have face detection as the X-M1.
3) the Q menu moved to another, better position (where would you like to have it?).
4) video mode will be improved and allow full manual control.
5) no tilt screen / no touch screen.

we already know from the Japanese source that it will also have:

6) the second generation X-Trans sensor with phase detection AF
7) faster EXR II processor
8) better LCD

Which are your most welcome additions/changes of the 8 listed here? Is there something you’d like to add? From the rumors you’ve heard until now, do you think is it worth to upgrade? If you don’t think so, but want to switch to the X, then check out the X-E1 deals at AmazonUS / BHphoto / Adorama / Pictureline

Stay tuned via facebook, twitter and RSS feed and follow us October 18th!

X-Pert Corner Tomorrow

After the first reviews (ephotozine / photographyblog) of the X-A1, X-Trans shooter felt disoriented: How is it possible that a $600 camera (with lens) delivers better images than the $1,200 X-PRO2 (body only)? Was it all just a hype and clever marketing? Is it time to get rid of the X-Trans sensor?

But we had to wait for more feedback in order to compare better the real performance of the sensors (RAW) and the software engines (JPEG).

1) It started with Rico’s shootout X-A1 vs X-M1 here.

2) Then it was the turn of Max to take a closer look at the X-A1 performance compared to the X-Trans cameras (riflessifotografici hereEnglish version). I also shared this forum thread here at dpr.

3) But, as you know, everything that has a beginning, has an end. The final word in this trilogy could be spoken tomorrow in Rico’s XPC special! He is using a pre-release version of Photo Ninja that supports the X-E1 and the new X-A1. He developed both RAW files and uploaded them on Flickr as maximum resolution JPEGs (check the links). Stay tuned tomorrow, will the final word be spoken tomorrow?

Here’s a direct comparison of 100% crops. Here’s the full-size X-A1 image. Here’s the full-size X-E1 image.

Lightroom and PhotoNinja Integration for X-Trans here.

The X-E2 is in the pipeline, but it seems that the latest X-E1+kit lens deal is still a attractive for many photographers. At least if we take a look at one of the biggest online retailers. At the AmazonUS CSC ranking both, the silver (9th) and the black version (6th) are in the top ten, followed by the X-M1 and X-PRO1, still in the top 20.

win an X100S

The contest expires October 3rd so the winner will be announced tomorrow: like the US store pictureline at facebook here, share with your friends and you could win an X100S! Will a Fujirumors reader be the lucky winner? I really hope so… and I’d feature his/her first X100S shots in the next FR-readers zone.

good luck to everybody
Patrick
