Fujifilm Leaks What’s Coming September 12 (GFX100 II, Tilt Shift)

Fujifilm has just put their countdown for the X summit on September 12 on their YouTube page.

Of course the video can’t yet be watched (will start Sept. 12 at 5AM New York time).

But here is the thing.

As soon as the video was up, I extracted the tags of the video and saw that the full tag-list included terms like “GFX100 II”, “tilt shift” and more (see screenshot above). I tried again now, and the tags that unveil what’s coming are no longer there.

So luckily I was fast enough to grab them for you. ;)

Now let’s go over them.

Let’s start with the tags that 100% tell us what’s coming September 12.

  • Fujifilm GFX100 II
  • Tilt Shift

According to my knowledge, also the Fujinon GF55mm f/1.7 should come on September 12.

Looking at the other tags gives us a sense on what the main focus of the event will be:

  • photography
  • cinema
  • movie recording

It’s interesting to see so much emphasis on the video side of things. And we already told you that the GFX100 II will bring several new features, such as Video touch-to-track AutofocusWaveforms Monitor and Anamorphic Mode.

A tag that gives X series users hopes:

  • X Series

Now, there are no specific tags for Fujifilm X-Pro4, X-E5, X-S30, X-T6, X-T40, X-H3, X-H3S, X80, X100VI (X200) or whatever. So little hopes for any X series camera to come, otherwise they would have tagged it just like they tagged the GFX100 II.

But I’d already be very happy if behind that “X series” and “fujinon” would hide for example the unveil of a new X series lens roadmap, which is long overdue.

Anyway, overall a very GFX-centric event, with hope for X series tidbits too.

Intriguing Theory: Fujifilm to Merge GFX100 and GFX100S into a Single Camera (GFX100 II) – Tony Northrup

Tony Northrup made a video where they cover the Fujifilm GFX100 II rumors (btw, thanks Tony for mentioning FujiRumors as the source… it’s a rare thing these days ;)).

Now, since it covers what we have shared already, there is nothing new to find out for FujiRumors.

However, he has an explanation on what “angled top plate” could practically mean (and it would make a whole lot of sense), but he also has an intriguing theory regarding the future GFX camera lineup.

In fact, when guessing the price of the GFX100 II (the video was recorded before we leaked the price), Tony said:

I think the price is going to be lower than the original GFX100 because I think they want to sell more. And since I think they are combining the GFX100 and GFX100S, I think they are going to drop the price down to $8,500″

Now, if this was indeed the case, then merging 2 camera lines into 1 could simplify the lineup even more and maybe free up more resources for other concepts.

Maybe Fujifilm could add that more retro X-T styled Fujifilm GFX camera to the lineup that we have seen in form of a mockup already here. Or keep up developing the Fujifilm GFX-R rangefinder line at a faster pace.

Certainly it could be a possibility to merge GFX100 and GFX100S, especially now considering the size difference is no longer a major factor (optional battery grip) and also, looking at the leaked image, the GFX100 and GFX100S look to be very close in terms of ergonomics.

So guys, merging two lines to free up resources for other GFX concepts? What do you think about it?

Surprise? Fujifilm GFX100 II Sensor Could be Even Faster than we Thought (Anonymous Source)

So guys.

I can confirm it.

The Fujifilm GFX100 II will come with a new 100 megapixel sensor.

Now, in our previous rumors we told you it would be based on the sensor architecture of the Sony A6700/FX30 sensor. Hence a BSI sensor that is faster to read out than previous generation of BSI sensor (in use on X-T4, X-S20, GFX100S, GFX100 etc).

But now an anonymous source reached out to us and told us that the Fujifilm GFX100 II will use a different design compared to the A6700/FX30 sensor.

The source said that while the A6700/FX30 offers a 10-20% speed increase over the conventional BSI sensor, this new sensor in use on the GFX100 II will offer up to 50% increase in readout speed.

And just to be clear, we are not talking about a stacked sensor, but an improved BSI sensor, hence this also fits with the rumor we shared earlier.

Now, this information comes from an anonymous sources, so it has to be taken with a grain of salt.

In any case we can be sure that it is indeed a new sensor and we can expect overall speed improvements on the Fujifilm GFX100 II.

Then, how much faster it is to read out, we will find out on September 12.

Fujifilm GFX100 II has no D-Pad

According to our trusted sources, the Fujifilm GFX100 II has no D-Pad.

Now, I was one of guys who most annoyed by Fujifilm’s move to remove the D-Pad on several of its cameras (my X-E3 and GFX100S have no D-Pad). But over time I got used to it (the joystick works wondefully to move around in the menu) and I am fine having no D-Pad.

But sure, I am also not that kind of photographer who needs to set 15 custom FN-buttons. I totally understand if the lack of D-Pad is more annoying for other photographers than it is for me.

LEAKED: Fujifilm GFX100 II Price – Surprised?

Despite having an all new sensor (never used on any X or GFX camera before).

Despite having the new X Processor 5

Despite having many of new features and some of them not even available on the most modern X series camera (see leaked specs below).

Despite inflation and parts shortage.

Despite all that, the Fujifilm GFX100 II will come with a price tag lower than the one of the orginial Fujifilm GFX100.

Much lower.

In fact, according to our sources, the price of the Fujifilm GFX100II will be of $7,499.

I think that’s a good price for this camera.

And if I look at the recent GFX100 II price survey we did, we can say that this price surprises 90%, because:

  • 47% of you thought the camera would cost more
  • 10% guessed the right price
  • 43% expected it to be more affordable

I am definitely in the camp of those people, who thought it would cost a bit more than $7,500.
