RUMOR: Fujifilm GFX100 II will NOT Have a File Transmitter Grip and C2C Integration Possible with GFX100II Body Only

Today I’ve learned a lesson.

Which lesson? I will tell you at the bottom.

First you have to know that so far we have spotted three camera registrations in the first half of 2023.

  • FF220002 = Fujifilm X-S20
  • FF230001 = very likely Fujifilm GFX100II
  • FF230002 = yet unknown

And because it takes Fujifilm between 1-4 months usually to release gear after registration, this would mean all three should come within this year.

And here comes the problem.

Given the lack of rumors about the third camera supposed to come in 2023, I told you yesterday here that I believe the registration could be for the vertical file transmitter grip for the GFX100II, but making clear that’s not a rumor, just a speculation of mine.

But after I’ve shared the video trusted sources (thanks!!!) reached out to me and corrected my speculation telling me this:

  • there will not be a file transmitter grip for the GFX100 II
  • Frame-io Camera-to-Cloud (C2C) integration will be possible using the GFX100II body only

Now this is huge news. Consider that the FT-HX File Transmitter Grip for X-H2/S costs $1,000, a staggering $600 more over the regular X-H battery grip.

But what in the X-H world costs you $600 extra to get access to ( C2C), you’ll get it built into the Fujifilm GFX100 II body for this price here.

And you know what that means.

It means that I have to get back at work to try to find out what the FF230002 is ;).

Lesson learned?

I have learned the lesson that I better don’t make any speculations, but just follow blindly the rumor-path my sources share with me.

So I will do just that.

By sharing more big rumors still before the launch of the GFX100II.

The Mystery of the Third Registered Fujifilm Camera for 2023 – A Possible Answer! (Speculation, not Rumor)

In 2023 we have so far spotted three Fujifilm registrations, with 2 items still to come

  • FF220002 = Fujifilm X-S20
  • FF230001 = very likely Fujifilm GFX100II
  • FF230002 = yet unknown

We know for sure that one of the yet to be released items will be the Fujifilm GFX100II.

So what could be the second one?

I’ve read all sorts of speculations, from the Fujifilm GFX50R successor, the Fujifilm X-Pro4, Fujifilm X-E5, Fujifilm X-T6, Fujifilm X-T40, Fujifilm X80, Fujifilm X-H3, Fujifilm X-H3S, Fujifilm X100VI or X200 and more.

But those “rumors” appeared also ahead of the X Summit on May 24, and of course none of it materialized.

Here on FujiRumors we avoid to share fakes for traffic and SEO. That’s why all we rumored so far for 2023 were the X-S20 (code name FF220002) and the Fujifilm GFX100II (probably the FF230001).

So yes, there is still one piece of gear, the FF230002, that should come this year. But which camera will it be?

Again, I have absolutely no rumors about other cameras coming in 2023, so an idea came to me:

What if it’s not a camera?

What if it’s something else?

Because keep in mind that these registrations don’t say anything about “cameras”, but about gear that uses some sort of WiFi/Bluetooth frequencies.

So here is the thing.

One of the gear registered in the past was the FF210004, which is not a camera, but the vertical file transmitter grip FT-XH, which unlocks the camera-to-cloud feature on these Fujifilm X-H cameras.

So, with that in mind, and given the lack of rumors for another camera coming in 2023, I see three options:

  1. Fujifilm will launch a new camera with the code name FF230002 in 2023, but FujiRumors simply does not know about it yet
  2. Fujifilm will launch a new camera with the code name FF230002 in 2024
  3. Fujifilm will launch an X-H alike file transmitter grip along with the GFX100II on September 12, and the grip has the code FF230002

Now, I don’t have rumors about any GFX100II file transmitter grip, but I have rumors about the GFX100II having an optional (and not integrated) battery grip, which could make option 3 likely.

Sure, also option 1 and 2 are still open. Especially if on September 12 the GFX100 II will come without any file transmitter grip.

But as we documented here it usually takes Fujifilm not more than 4 months (in two cases only it took them 6 months) to launch a camera after the registration has been spotted. And since the FF230002 registration appeared back in June here, the likelihood of a 2023 launch is very high.

And sure, there can always be a surprise camera. Maybe scheduled for launch later this year, maybe in November (X-T5 was launched in November too). I am just a rumor site and don’t claim to always know everything that will happen in the Fujifilm world. But maybe you remember the famous Fujifilm camera roadmap shared by Fuji Spain, in which they displayed two “disruptive” cameras coming for 2023. Well, if that roadmap was accurate, then the X-S20 and GFX100II would be those cameras and we can’t expect anything else coming this year.

But if that was the case, if nothing else would not come in 2023, then don’t worry, because as we already told you, the start into 2024 will be bombastic ;).

“See You Soon”: Fujifilm Teases Mysterious Camera Coming – GFX100 II

Fujifilm is teasing the September 12 event all over their social media, and to do so, they use the silhouette of a mysterious camera.

The camera we see is far from being the final Fujifilm GFX100 II, unless Fujifilm really decided to go for a camera without a shutter button. ;)

A photo of the camera itself leaked already here.

The X summit will take place on September 12 at 5AM New York time.

RUMOR: Fujifilm GFX100 II Coming with Base ISO 80

According to our trusted sources, the Fujifilm GFX100 II will have a base ISO of 80 (compared to the ISO100 of current GFX cameras).

That’s potentially a good news, but let’s see how this translates into real life image quality on September 12, when the GFX100 II will be announced at the X Summit.

RUMOR: Fujifilm X100V Successor Coming with a “New” Lens in Early 2024

We already told you that the Fujifilm X100V successor will be launched in early 2024 (and ship in late 2028 probably :) ).

Well, today trusted sources have informed us that the Fujifilm X100V replacement will come with a “new lens”.

No further details for now but I am working on it and update you as soon as I can.

But I want to be clear:

“New lens” for now is a vague hint and could mean just anything: from a minor redesign that would make the lens weather sealed without the need to apply a filter (which is currently needed to seal the X100V lens) or also a redesign with different focal length/aperture [for example the patented 20mmF2 lens for X100 cameras]. Just everything is possible at this point.

So, for now “new” just means that there will be differences over the X100V lens, but how strong this difference will be I can’t tell right now.

A minor change? A substantial redesigned? I’ll make sure you’ll get the answer here on FujiRumors.

Certainly this comes surprising, as in 5 generation of the X100 line (X100, X100S, X100T, X100F, X100V), Fujifilm has refreshed the lens only once, on the last generation, the X100V. So personally I would not have expected another refresh to come that soon again. But it’s happening. Word of trusted sources.
