Fujifilm X Camera Replacement Timeline from 2011 to 2018 and What This Could Mean for X-H2, X-T4, X-T30, X-Pro3, X-E4, X200

Fujifilm Timeline

Today I decided to take a look at the refresh rate of the top/mid range Fujifilm cameras and tried to make a guess (NOT A RUMOR) about when the Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-Pro3, Fujifilm X-E4, Fujifilm X-T4, Fujifilm X-T30 and Fujifilm X200 (or X100V) can be expected.

Overall we can see how the Fujifilm X-E and X-Pro line are gravitating towards a 4 years refresh time, whereas X-T and X100 line are close to a 2 years refresh time.

WARNING

  • This is not based on rumors, and it’s not said that Fujifilm will always keep the same product refresh rate. Everything can change anytime.
  • Don’t miss the upcoming rumors and join us on Facebook, RSS-feed, Instagram, Youtube and Twitter

NOT INCLUDED:

  1. All 2/3 sensor cameras are not included, since the won’t ever get any successor (not even 1 inch sensor cameras, no matter what old patents say)
  2. X70/XF10: XF10 is not the X70 successor. It’s unclear if there will be a Fujifilm X80 at some point
  3. X-A line has a high refresh rate, but the FR community is for the most part not interested in this camera line
  4. GFX 50S, GFX 100S, GFX 50R: According to our rumors, the GFX 100 comes 2 years and 3 months after the GFX 50S. It’s unclear if the Fuji GFX 50R will also get a 2 year refresh rate or a 4 year refresh rate like its rangefinder brothers the X-Pro and X-E

If the Fujifilm X-T3 had IBIS, would You Prefer it over the Fujifilm X-H2?

Fujifilm X-H2

Recently we launched an interesting poll (almost 7,000 votes), where we could see that most FR-readers are waiting for the Fujifilm X-H2 and hence did not buy the Fujifilm X-T3.

But I wonder, is it only because the Fuji X-H2 will have IBIS, or do you simply overall prefer the ergonomics of the Fujifilm X-H2 over the Fuji X-T3?

Well, let’s try to find it out with todays’ survey.

So, imagine the Fujifilm X-T3 would have IBIS, and hence be equal to the Fujifilm X-H2 in terms of specs, and the only difference between the X-T3 and X-H2 would be the ergonomics, which one would you buy?

As a FR-reader told me, the same questions has been shared at dpreview here, but the poll there did get only 59 votes.

The unique thing about FujiRumors (and the reason why Fujifilm does read this website and your comments), is that FR brings together the by very far largest group of Fujifilm X and GFX shooters, hence polls always get a few thousands of votes within a single day and the comment section is always very lively.

So let’s try to launch the survey here on FR. Feel free to vote it down below.

Fuji Guys Billy Hopes IBIS will be Implemented in Future Fujifilm GFX 50 version of GFX 100

Fujifilm GFX 50 IBIS

I was reading the first edition of the brand new Medium Format magazine, when I stumbled on this answer of Fuji Guy Billy.

QUESTION: Will this stabilization system eventually find its way to lower-priced medium format cameras or are you going to keep it for the top of the range for now?

ANSWER: It’s very early to talk about that. I think our official announcement of this 100-megapixel concept camera is sometime in the first half of next year. Of course, Fujifilm is always developing and researching how to include technologies such as in-body image stabilization to other line-ups. I hope that the technology will be implemented in the future when they introduce the GFX 50 megapixel version of the camera.”

If there ever will be a Fujifilm GFX 50 Megapixel camera with IBIS, Fuji’s medium format system would consist in:

And btw, I am really enjoying to go through the 140 pages of the medium format magazine, and I look forward to the next editions. Make sure to check it out at mediumformat.com. Lots of talented photographers sharing their thoughts and images there. It covers not only Fujifilm GFX, but also other medium format systems.

Panasonic Says Organic Sensor Cooperation with Fujifilm Continues. Mass Production Will Take a Bit more Time

Organic Sensor

Over 5 years ago, Fujifilm and Panasonic announced the development of the organic sensor.

Now Panasonic Manager Mr. Uematsu said to personal-view here, that the organic sensor is still in development with Fujifilm, but it takes more time than expected:

As you know, since its initial announcement in 2016, there is a continuous cooperation between Panasonic and FujiFilm in development of the organic sensor technology.

The recent results are very promising. The mass production of this kind of sensor, however, will take a little bit more time, and today I cannot say when we can use this kind of sensor.”

I remind you that in December 2014, our sources told us here, that the crucial problems to be solved with the organic sensor are heat generation and battery drain.

As Panasonic officially said in February 2016 the organic sensor (with global shutter) has 123dB dynamic range.
