Ok… we are at the finishing straight… but this is not a reason for me to stop leaking! (thanks, FR-sources… you just Rock!)
I have plenty of Coffee, Red Bull (and other unspecified drugs) ready to push me through the night until the X-T2 annoucement (tomorrow, July 7, at 01:00 AM New York Time). It will be one of the most awesome Live Bloggings I’ve ever did… and I’m so excited!
That said, take a look at these 3 rumors I’ve got from 3 different sources (thanks):
A trusted source told me that the X-T2 can be charged internally via USB 3 cable.
SD-card slot and Accessory Door
We saw it from the top, the back, the side, the front… and now our trusted Japanese source thought that something was missing: the inside!!! So it grabbed a Fuji X-T2 and opened the accessory and SD-card door. Enjoy the pics (see them at the top of the post) :-)
Available In September
Another tricky part of rumors, is to give an accurate date of when a new product will actually ship. In the past we have seen to many times Fuji announcing a date, and then changing it during pre-order period. But, sometimes, we have also seen some stores deliver a new product slightly before Fuji’s expected shipping date. So everything is possible, but for now I’d say that the X-T2 will ship in September (let’s hope early September).
Is that the consequence of the Kumamoto earthquake? I don’t know.
But what is sure: if you’d like the camera as soon as possible, you better pre-order it quickly. I have the feeling the shipping won’t proceed super-smooth and if pre-orders are high, there might be quite a shortage of X-T2’s for a while.
That said, I hope to be proven wrong tomorrow, and the X-T2 will ship already in August.
