Fuji X PRO 2 scheduled for an early 2013 release? Fuji X PRO 1 firmware coming!


According to a trusted source the X-E1 will be the “only” interchangeable mirrorless camera announced by Fuji this year. An X PRo 1 successor is scheduled for a 2013 release.

This may a good news for X PRO 1 owners. Let’s hope Fuji is focusing on a new firmware update to fix some of the small (or big) issues of the camera we already own :)


UDPATE: Photorumors just spotted a Facebook post written by Tony Bridge saying that a new X PRO 1 firmware update is coming on September 5th, 2012. These are the improvements:
1) In low-light condition, the X-Pro1 will be much faster in Auto Focus mode.
2) The speed of the image coming into focus when turning the focus ring has been vastly improved.
3) At maximum speed the X-Pro1 can now write to SD memory card twice as fast as before.

      Just sold my x-pro1 :o) this camera as several flaws, the autofocus was driving me crazy, will take a very close look at the x-e1.

      good luck x-pro1 owners.

    Great news!

    This is awesome! This firmware fix is going to be fantastic. If the focus-by-wire actually gets fixed properly, and feels even close to useable, then I might start using my 35 a LOT more. I’m still holding my breathe for them to release some kind of rangefinder overlay for the viewfinder (not sure if possible to overlay a small part of the EVF over the OVF). That is the one fix that I think would make this camera a serious winner. It wouldn’t be a true rangefinder, but if it works like one, I’m fine with that.

    Good news.

    If it’s released early next year thats still 6 months away and more in line then releasing the XPRO2 along with the XE-1 as speculated before. Looking forward to the firmware. Surprised no X200 has been brought up.

    Will the firmware fix the dramas when using the hot shoe with radio flash triggers? First person to test this gets a prize**

    **Prize is 1x sincere thank you. Not redeemable for cash.

    I really hope X-Pro 2 is full frame. I doub tit will be given the X series lenses but at least hopefully the sensor will be much improved. X-pro1 is very good for close up technical shots but does not do well for landscape shots. X Pro 2 hopefully with have deeper color, more megapixels and detail and produce more realistic looking distance/landscape type shots.

      highly unlikely

    I wonder if an xpro2 will be announce in Japan in late January.
