BREAKING: Next Fujifilm Film Simulation to be Called NOSTALGIC NEGATIVE

Nostalgic Negative

According to information we have just received from trusted sources, the long rumored new film simulation to be launched on January 27 will be called “Nostalgic Negative“.

I don’t know you, but I already love the vintage sound of it ;).

I don’t know which original film will serve as inspiration for this particular film simulation. Classic Negative is based on Superia, as you can see from Fuji’s own presentation sheet here.

I am crossing fingers that it will based on this one!

And if you wonder why Fujifilm doesn’t give it the name of existing film, then feel free to read the explanation of Fujifilm engineers here.

Fujifilm GFX100S Explained: Fixed EVF, Only One Top Dial (PSAM), No D-Pad, Top LCD, No Humpback and More

Ok guys, let’s narrow the range of our imagination, and describe a bit closer the Fujifilm GFX100S.

According to our information, you can imagine Fujifilm GFX100S like this:

  • no GFX50S humpback (if you don’t know what I mean, check out this image)
  • Top plate has only one dial on the top left side: a PSAM dial
  • no D-Pad
  • has joystick
  • Top LCD
  • Fixed viewfinder (not removable like on GFX100S and GFX50S, where it also can tilt thanks to the EVF tilt adapter)

Let’s add the information we already shared:

So, the Fujifilm GFX100S will be the first GFX camera with a PSAM dial.

And I get it: the almost totality of the market wants a PSAM dial. And if Fujifilm wants to attack the high end full frame market, then they simply have no other choice than to offer a GFX camera with PSAM dial. It will help the GFX system to get more popular.

And you know what?

Sure, I still would have preferred retro dials, but a PSAM dial is still better than the solution the GFX100 adopted, which was the first and only Fujifilm I ever used, that I struggled to operate out of the box.

So, mixed feelings here. But overall I prefer a PSAM dial over the solution adopted on the original GFX100.

Fujifilm X-E4 Will Not Have IBIS

A while back, we investigated if the brand new compact IBIS system of the Fujifilm X-S10 would fit in the Fujifilm X-E3.

I took technical sketches of the X-S10 IBIS unit provided by Fujifilm and overlapped it to the X-E3.

We could see, that techinically it looks like there would be space for the X-S10 IBIS in the X-E3, and hence also on the upcoming X-E4 (if the X-E4 would have the same size of X-E3).

But today I have to report that, according to our information, the X-E4 has no IBIS.

I don’t know if this is just a matter of costs, or if Fujifilm decided to make the X-E4 even smaller than its predecessor.

Or maybe it’s the price we have to pay to get a flip up screen that still allows the LCD to be flush to the body like on the X100V.

So what, is the potential lack of IBIS a dealbreaker for you? Feel free to let us know in the comments.

Nope, there is No Fujinon XF300mmF4 and XF500mmF5.6 Coming in 2021

Do you know those automatic tennis ball machine launchers that constantly fire off balls at you, so fast that at some point you just can’t catch them all anymore?

Well, it’s not much different with fake rumors ;).

Sometimes the fake rumors are thrown out in the world with a pace, that here on FujiRumors we just can’t debunk them all fast enough.

But I try to catch up, and here is one that passed the FujiRumors firewall so far but will now be set right.

Back in March 2020 we reported about two Fujifilm patents showing a Fujinon XF300mmF4 and Fujinon XF500mmF5.6.

Now, I keep getting emails of people firmly believing that the Fujinon XF300mmF4 and Fujinon XF500mmF5.6 will come out for the summer Olympics 2021 in Tokyo.

And guys, I hate to be the one that brings the bad news, but whoever told you that, it is not going to happen.

As a matter of fact, those lenses won’t even come in 2021.

Will they come in 2022? Or in 2023? Or maybe never? I have no idea at this point.

But I tell you this: I blog on FR since 9 years now, and I have reported about countless of patents. And if I have understood something about patents in all these years, then it’s that there is a long way between a patent and a final product. And often patents never even materialize into a final product.

So, take patents with a grain of salt, always.

With that said, I do hope those lenses will come. Maybe Sigma will do them?

Stay tuned on FujiRumors, and I will give you updates as soon as I have them.
