Fujifilm X Summit: Recap of A Unique Event and One More Reason to Fall in Love with Fujifilm!

Fujifilm X Summit

What crazy days we had, triggered by the wonderful Fujifilm X Summit.

Fujifilm managers, engineers and designers explained their work, gave interesting insights and answered live questions of their customers.

Fujifilm even publicly asked us which lenses and firmware we would like next, letting us vote on various options (with overwhelming response by the FujiRumors community).

The X Summit shows, that the way Fujifilm interacts, listens and follows to customer needs, is more unique than rare, and it’s one more reason to fall in love with Fujifilm!

In case you missed it, make sure to check out our compact Fujifilm X Summit summary.

Fujifilm did an amazing job, customers answered in the best way possible, and for what it’s worth, I’ve also tried to honour the event by working restlessly and publishing 14 articles over the last weekend.

However, it seems that not everybody was able to keep track of it all, since I start to get emails from readers notifying me about news I have already published.

So I thought a quick recap could help:

Fun fact: at the X Summit Fujifilm said they will cooperate with Adobe for better X-Trans support, and four days later came this news:

Fujifilm GFX 100 Media Slides: 50% faster AF with Phase Detection at -2 EV @ F2, Why Only One Shooting Mode Dial Explained and More

Fujifilm GFX100

The Fujifilm GFX100 removed all dedicated dials except for one “Shooting Mode Dial“, which will allow you select between stills, multi or movie mode.

We had a huge debate about the Fuji GFX100 dial removal here on Fujirumors (includes a poll) and mostly people were not happy at all about it, because they feel that dials and retro-controls are part of the X series DNA.

Well, it seems that Fujifilm was not insensible to the mostly negative feedback that came from the FujiRumors community and they now felt the need to explain why they removed the dials. Check the “new shooting mode switch operation” section below.

I will add all the screenshots to all the media slides below, but I also write them all down here on FujiRumors, just in case you are watching this on a smartphone and you don’t want to open the slides and keep up zooming in and out to read them… we like to take care of our readers here on FujiRumors ;).

You will also find the hands on images by dpreview, who also said:

  • textured finish similar to that used on the GFX 50S
  • integrated grip provides more space for shutter mechanism and IBIS
  • about the size of Nikon D5 or Canon EOS-1DX II – comparison here
  • lacks the retro-style dials
  • large 3-position dial on the left is used to switch the camera between movie, stills and multiple exposure modes
  • ‘drive’ button at its center
  • large top screen won’t make miss the large shutter speed and ISO dials of its predecessor too badly
  • EVF clarity and resolution excellent. Free from the pixelation and noticeable lag which affected the finder of the 50S
  • viewfinder unit is removable, but when the GFX 50S finder is attached to the GFX 100, they won’t get the benefit of the greatly improved resolution of the newer EVF
  • all-new OLED ribbon display on the back, below the main LCD will serve to show the status of key camera settings
  • tilt and touch screen
  • While the main shutter dial has an on/off switch collar, the same control on the secondary shutter release serves to lock/unlock the button
  • Battery life: ~400 shots (CIPA) per single charge
  • dual SD-card slot
  • next-generation XQD/CFexpress media in the GFX 100 is being discussed for future products in the GFX lineup
  • microphone and headphone jacks, plus HDMI and USB, courtesy of a USB 3.0 Type C port
  • possible to charge the GFX 100 over USB
  • 4K/30, 10bit, 4:2:0 video internally and 10bit 4:2:2 externally via HDMI
  • GF 45mm F2.8 delivered plenty of sharp images at 1/20sec and a couple of acceptably sharp shots at shutter speeds as low as 1/6sec
  • GFX 100 could support sensor-shift features in future [already rumored on FujiRumors]
  • AF speed appears very good, and certainly greatly improved over the original GFX 50S
  • available on-time, in late spring or early summer.
  • price around $10,000

LEAKED: First Images of Fujifilm X-T30 Dark Gray and Hands On Images of XF 16mm F2.8, XF 16-80mm F4 and GF 50mm F3.5

Fujifilm X-T30 Leak

The Fujifilm X-T30, to be announced on February 14 along with the Fujinon XF16mm f/2.8, will come not only in the traditional black and silver, but also in a Fujifilm X-Pro2 graphite alike color. You can see the first images here on FujiRumors as well some images of the upcoming XF 16mm f/2.8, XF 16-80mm f/4 and GF 50mm f/3.5 shared by dpreview.

Personally I was never really a super fan of the Fujifilm X-T30 design, but I must say this new color raises its “sexiness” quite a bit.

There will be a huge live blogging on February 14 (bigger than you think ;) ), so stay tuned on FujiRumors and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed and Twitter.

We already knew that the Fujifilm GFX100 will be the first medium format camera able to shoot 4K/30p, but now Italian Fujifilm X photographer Luca Bracali and Italian store NewOldCamera dropped a few more specs from the GPP event in Dubai here (Luca) and here (NOC).

Lucky me that Italian is one of the 3 languages I manage much better than English (and poor you, who have to live with all kind of English errors I make), so here is the translation of the main new specs unveiled by Luca and NOC.

  • 4K/30p with H265 codec and 400 mbps
  • shipping within the end June
  • price: €10,000
  • 5 fps continuous shooting (GFX50S and GFX50R shoot at 3fps)
