Good bye OVF: the X30 will feature an EVF (new source)

 photo EVFONLY_zps7ee85cbd.jpg

On Monday I told you about the X30 with 2/3” sensor and asked you to contact me in case you have more information about it. Well, a new source kindly contacted me via email, confirmed the 2/3” sensor and also said that the X30 will feature an EVF.

Over at the FR-facebook community, Eric and Grant expressed their wish to replace the OVF with and EVF.

The rumored X30 specs list so far is: (TS= trusted source / NeS =New Source / AS = Anonymous Source / SRP = source who was right in the past, but not yet trusted / ORS = other rumor sites)

P.S.: To anyone out there who likes the rumored FR-specs lists: if you copy&paste them, do not forget to indicate (clearly) where the list comes from. I’ve nothing against it when you quote the original source of the rumors ;-).

First samples taken with the X100T uploaded by David Hobby, but quickly removed

 photo X10T_zpsfe4715a6.png

FR-reader Luke stumbled on this interesting dpreview thread. The screenshot can found at reddit.com.

Apparently, David Hobby uploaded a set of sample images from the X100T to his Flickr account by mistake. The images have since been removed, as he broke his NDA (non-disclosure agreement) by publishing them.

The name is nothing new for FR-readers. I told you over a month ago that X100T could be the name of the X100S successor. The focal lenght remains 23 (APS-C, according to mirrorlessrumors).

(TS= trusted source / NeS =New Source / AS = Anonymous Source / SRP = source who was right in the past, but not yet trusted)

  • X100T (TS + NeS + leaked by X-photographer David Hobby)
  • 24MP X-Trans sensor (NeS)
  • APS-C (ORS)
  • faster AF than X100S (NeS)
  • tilt screen (NeS)
  • new fixed lens (NeS)
  • 23mm (leaked by X-photographer David Hobby)
  • new EVF, better than X100S, but not as much as X-T1 (NeS)
  • wider phase detection area (NeS)
