Fujifilm GFX XG Concept vs Panasonic S1R, Sony a7iii, Nikon Z7, Canon EOS R Size Comparisons

Fujifilm GFX XG vs Panasonic S1R

Fujifilm GFX XG

Fujifilm has recently shown a couple of early Fujifilm GFX concepts. You can see them all here.

Amongst the others, there was the Fujifilm XG, an X-T styled Fujifilm GFX.

I was curious to compare its size to the one of current mirrorless full frame cameras, so I took the image shared by dpreivew, threw it into camerasize, and manually made accurate size comparison with the Panasonic S1R, Sony a7iii, Nikon Z7, Canon EOS R as well as the Fujifilm GFX 50R.

Fujifilm obviously designed all the early concepts keeping in mind that they have to accomodate a rather big shutter mechanism. The arrival of the global shutter should allow Fujifilm to make the camera sensibly smaller.

Unconfirmed Speculations: Fujifilm Working on Ultimate Fujifilm X Sports Camera – Should Fujifilm Really Make it? (POLL)

The Ultimate Fujifilm X

Michael The Maven published his full Fujifilm XF200mm f/2 video review. He praises this lens a lot and says it’s a step above anything Fujifilm has ever made so far.

In fact, he says the XF200mmF2 is so spectacular, that it does not make sense mounted on any current Fujifilm camera.

This is why he speculates that Fujifilm will release a professional APS-C flagship sports camera in not so distant future aimed to compete with the Sony A9.

Déjà-vu anyone?

Back in early 2017 (rumors of March 3, March 14 and April 14), we told you how Fujifilm was planing “the ultimate Fujifilm X“, a feature packed APS-C hybrid stills/video camera with IBIS, that could cost around $3,000 (if not more).

However, Fujifilm hesitated if such a camera would be successful, hence vastly revised the project (rumors of July 12, July 17 and July 24).

The result was the Fujifilm X-H1, an ergonomically fantastic camera with IBIS and a new ninja-shutter, but with the core specs and battery of the Fujifilm X-T2.

Rumors and Poll

Let me say it clearly: I have no indication at the moment that would allow me to say with confidence that Fujifilm revived plans for the ultimate Fujifilm X. Hence I can in no way confirm Michael’s speculation.

All that is sure is that Fujifilm had such plans in the past (2017), and Fujifilm can put that same project on the “to-do” list anytime again, just like it happened with the Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0, another project Fujifilm froze in for a few years, and then revived later on (also thanks to the pressure the FujiRumors community made).

Coincidence wants that a few days ago FR-reader Nathan contacted me with a survey suggestion, that fits perfectly into today’s article. Nathan wrote:

I would like to purpose a simple survey for your readership. Should Fujifilm create a Fujifilm X-T3Pro to compete with the Sony a7000

IMHO, a Fujifilm X-H2 with latest technology and bigger battery below $2,000 (vertical grip included) would be more than enough to satisfy the needs of wildlife and sport photographers and there is more urgent need for something like the Fujinon XF400mm f/4 to attract more of them into the X system.

But let me know what you think in the comments down below and feel free to vote the survey on if you would you like (or not) Fujifilm to revive plans for the ultimate feature packed (and expensive) Fujifilm X.

Fujifilm GFX Early Concept Mockups Image Gallery – Current Concepts, Future Reality?

Fujifilm SP-X Tilt Screen

Fujifilm GFX Concepts

At the recent Fujifilm X summit, Fujifilm displayed a modular Fujifilm GFX “Omega” concept, inspired by Hasselblad’s 500-series square format film cameras.

The Omega concept had “direct control for aspect ratio and unusual ‘roller’ style controls“.

It never became reality because of the big shutter mechanism required for the medium format sensor, a problem that could be solved with the global shutter.

Fujifilm displayed even more early Fujifilm GFX concepts at the X summit, such as two X-T camera alike concept and also the progenitor of the current Fujifilm GFX 50R, called Fujifilm SP-X, with sub-ISO dial, a weird tilt LCD screen and no EVF.

Fujifilm’s goal is to create a medium format camera close in size to current mirrorless full frame cameras. Future technology like the global shutter will help to achieve this goal. So the mockups we see today, are Fujifilm’s goal for tomorrow.

You can find the full GFX concept gallery at dpreview.

Fujifilm FF180005 Registered: Fujifilm GFX100 or Surprise Camera?

Fujifilm FF180005

Fujifilm just registered a camera with the code name “FF180005” here, as spotted by nokishita.

Fujifilm has already announced they will release the Fujifilm GFX100 in the first half of 2019, so we can assume that’s the camera that hides behind the mysterious code name.

FujiRumors has exclusively leaked the entire Fujifilm GFX100 media slides, with lot of details in it. This can’t be found anywhere on the web, since it is confidential Fujifilm material.

However, the “FF180005” could be also another not yet rumored Fujifilm camera.
