Fujifilm X-T3: Better Battery Performance and Touch Screen. New Battery Charger BC-W126S registered

Fujifilm X-T3

Hey guys,

I have a few Fujifilm X-T3 for you today, that you might be very happy about.

According to our sources, the Fujifilm X-T3 will have “better battery performance” and touch screen.

But there is more :)

Fujifilm just registered a new battery charger, the BC-W126S (registration here – via nokishita).

Nokishita does not say for which camera it is, but in combination with today’s rumor about the improved battery performance on the X-T3, the BC-W126S could indeed be the better battery for the Fujifilm X-T3.

If our assumption is correct, then the fact that it is called still “W126S” could mean that the Fujifilm X-T3 will still be compatible with the NP-W126S batteries. However, it could also be a bigger battery. I will verify it now.

So the current rumored Fujifilm X-T3 specs are:

  • announcement around photokina (end of September) or shortly before
  • no IBIS
  • 26MP APS-C X-Trans sensor
  • stacked sensor (this one take with a grain of salt for now)
  • new X-Processor
  • better battery performance
  • touch screen

Fujifilm X80: Kevin Mullins Explains Why he Needs One after Damaging his Fujifilm X70

Fujifilm XF10

Yes I know, here on FujiRumors we already told you about the Fujifilm XF10, a camera, similar in size to the X70, and yet it can’t be considered an XF10 successor, because it has no X-Trans sensor and especially because it has not a Selfie Screen.

Considering the XF10 without Selfie screen a successor to the X70 would be like considering the X-Pro3 without hybrid viewfinder a successor to the X-Pro2.

And indeed, the fact that Fujifilm decided to give the camera an all new name and not X70s or X80, is indication that Fujifilm itself won’t market it as a real X70 successor.

I am sorry guys… for as much love I have for Fujifilm, I simply can’t understand this camera.

And since I am not at all part of Fuji’s marketing machine, but I write what I want when I want with the same freedom of when I started this blog 6+ years ago, I will use my freedom to criticise the XF10.

However, even though I am on holidays, I will live blog on July 5th to cover the Fujifilm XF10 launch.

Fujifilm X80

The only worthy successor to the X70 should be called X70s or X80.

At this stage, I have no information if Fujifilm has plans to make an X80 or not. But there are people, who certainly hope it will see the light of the day, such as Kevin Mullins.

After seriously damaging his Fujifilm X70, a camera that Kevin Mullins really likes and uses also for his pro work at weddings, Kevin started crossing his fingers for an X80.

He shared a video on his youtube channel here explaining why he needs an X80 and what improvements he would like to see over the X70, as well as a blog post at f.16 click, where he shares lots of beautiful images taken with his X70.

Of course Kevin needs the selfie screen, actually he even wants a fully articulating one.

Kevin Mullins shared another X70 video here: People Watching at Cheltenham Races 2018 with my Fuji X70

Self Scratched X70

And while Kevin Mullins accidentally damaged his X70, there are people out there, who like the extra vintage look of scratched X70 and intentionally damage their X70, such as FujiGlitch at our forum here.

Fujinon GF Rumored Lens Roadmap Update: Tilt Shift Lens, GF20-35mm, GF 80mmF1.4 (not in 2018) & More

internal Fujinon GF Lens Roadmap Leaked on FujiRumors

Fujinon GF Lens Roadmap

You might remember how here on FujiRumors we leaked Fujifilm’s interal GF lens roadmap already back in April 2017 (see screenshot above)!

But time passed, and there is more to share and to update… so let’s do it today.

GF 80mm F1.4

We broke the rumor of a crazy fast GF 80mm F1.4 (!!!) medium format lens back in June 2017.

However, keep in mind that a Fujifilm manager said here that they need 2 years to discuss, develop and finally make a camera and even more than 2 years in case of lenses.

So if in June 2017, when we shared the GF 80mmF1.4 rumor, the discussions about the GF80mmF1.4 just started, then now, 1 year later, IF Fujifilm really decided to go ahead with it, it will take them well over 1 year to come out with it.

Again… if Fujifilm decided to make it all.

But even if Fujifilm decided to make it, you should not expect any GF 80mmF1.4 lens at Photokina 2018, and I’d personally would not expect it before 2020 anyway.

Don’t worry, there will be lots of other great gear to enjoy at Photokina 2018, such as the Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm GF 50R.

Tilt Shift, UWA & The New Roadmap

According to our sources, we must add also a tilt shift lens for the GF system to the list of rumored lenses shared back in April 2017, so the updated and complete rumored GF lens list is the following:

  • GF 35mm F2.8 (coming 2018)
  • GF 20-36mm F3.5-4.5 (in 2018 this or the GF 100-200)
  • GF 100-200mm F4.5-5.6 (in 2018 this or the GF 20-36)
  • GF 80mm F1.4 (not in 2018 – personally I’d not expect it before 2020)
  • Tilt Shift lens (coming 2018/2019)

Fujifilm plans to release 2/3 GF lenses a year, and since we already got the GF250mmF4 last month, we can expect a maximum of two more lenses in 2018.

Now, for 2018, the Fujinon GF 35mmF2.8 should be sure.

So now it’s your turn guys. Let us know which one you would prefer between the GF20-36, GF-100-200 and the tilt shift lens for 2018.

And make sure to join our Fujifilm GFX facebook group.

stay tuned,

Which Fujinon GF lens would you like in 2018?
