 photo x30tiltmockup_zps59576f96.jpg

Here is one more little update on the X30 front:

A source, who was right in the past (SRP), said that the X30 will feature a view mode button (I’d love that on my X-E2!!!) and a have 6 function buttons.

I hear you asking for the price, and that is often one of the trickiest part of rumors. But let’s say that the rumored specs list is correct, what is the maximum you would spend for it?

Fujifilm X30: Announcement August 26? With 3“ Tilt Screen & WiFi (with remote control)

 photo x30tiltmockupAnnouc_zps76c272da.jpg

Announcement

An anonymous source told me that the Fujifilm X30 will be announced on the 26th of August. It confirms it has the same lens and sensor of the Fujifilm X20, it’s a bit bigger, has quite a different design than the X20, features a fast EVF and WiFi. It also confirms the new film simulation mode ‘Classic Chrome’ (we first heard from a source, who was right in the past, about the Classic Chrome film simulation. Now, apparently, the Fujifilm X30 will be the first camera featuring it).

I’ll try to confirm the announcement date with trusted sources. For now, take it with a grain of salt.

Nevertheless, in the meantime, mark the date, and stay tuned on Fujirumors. Follow FR on facebook, google+, RSS-feed and twitter

MORE SPECS

Now, also other 2 sources shared some specs, which are not really a surprise, but I’ll share them out of a pre-emptive self-defense, because if I wouldn’t share it, there would be some reproaching me for not being able to see it coming ;-). The rumors come from a new soure and an anonymous source, but, as said, I really think that this will be part of the new features of the X30.

– The X30 will feature a 3“ Tilt Screen (2.8-inch on the X20) and the a 2/3 12MP sensor X-Trans II – (anonymous source).

– It will have the WiFi with remote control capability and the exposure compensation dial will go from +/-3. (new source)

Time to upgrade the rumored specs list again:

Fujifilm will introduce a new Film Simulation called „Classic Chrome“ (SRP)

 photo filmsimu_zpsea3b2a8f.png

A few months ago, there was an anonymous source with nick name, who shared a correct rumor about the X-T1 with us (SRP = source right in the past). This source just wrote me for the second time and told us that Fuji will launch a new Film Simulation called „Classic Chrome“.

That’s all the source said. So for now… take it with… a grain of salt.

If true, I think we will see this film simulation coming with the X30 and X100T… and maybe it could also be one of the features introduced in the rumored upcoming X-T1 firmware update. But that’s just my personal guess for now, so DO NOT take it as a rumor from a FR-source.

Oh, and feel free to share this rumor whereever you want, just make the courtesy to quote the source and to put a link back to FR. I have nothing against it to be quoted ;-)

stay tuned… and share rumors with Fujirumors (if you have some),
facebook, google+, RSS-feed and twitter

P.S.: And in case you just came back from holidays and didn’t read FR in the last weeks, then here is a little rumor roundup and reliability rating for you. Also a rumor check-up of 2014, which will have a big update after photokina I suppose.

X-T1: a new firmware update is coming !

 photo neukai_zpsdf3dff47.png

According to a trusted source, a new firmware update for the X-T1 is coming. I don’t know when exactly (working on it), but it should not take long for X-T1 shooters to be able to update their camera. And it shouldn’t be just a simple bug fix, according to the source… so is a new Kaizen-firmware on the way?

Now, keep in mind that release dates for firmware updates are tricky… and X100 owners know exactly what I’m talking about, when Fuji postponed their update several times. But, in this case, if there are no surprises, it should not take long.

stay tuned… if I can dig up something more about this new firmware (and find out if other X-series cameras will get a new firmware too) I’ll post an update.

And of course, any help is appreciated. Just contact me at fujirumor [at] gmail.com or 100% anonymously using the rumor box (and eventually use a nick-name, so that I can identify you in future).

X30 lens: 28-112mm f/2-2.8 (same as X20)… but with dual ring (SRP)!

 photo x30mockup_zps9602bde0.jpg

A source, who was right in the past (SRP), claims to have the following information: the lens on the X30 will remain the same (28-112mm f/2-2.8)! Also a new source shared with me the same information, thanks!

But, always according to the source, who was right in the past, the X30 will feature a new dual ring on the lens (Zoom ring + Control Ring).

Although the source was right in the past, I invite you to take it still with a grain of salt.

EDIT: Someone asked in the comments what a control ring is. Well, check out Fuji’s XQ1 page and you’ll learn more about it.

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)

– 2/3 sensor (TS + NeS)
– EVF only (TS + NeS)
– EVF specs: 2,36mp, x0.62 magnification and 100% coverage (TS)
– Announcement: at photokina (ORS) – FR-sources just said “this summer” (AS)
– Battery: more than 400 shots with one battery and USB-charging (AS)
– Lens 28-112mm f/2-2.8 with dual ring (Zoom Ring + Control Ring) (SRP)
