New Fujifilm NP-W126 MK II Battery will Generate Less Heat (Trusted Source)

Fujifilm NP-W126 MK II

I’ve received the rumor (from trusted source) that the new Fujifilm NP-W126 batteries will handle heat better. Less heat generation allows us to shoot 4K and use the full power of the X-T2 (via “boost” function on the Vertical Grip).

I remind you that Fuji Guy Billy said here, the X-Pro2 can’t shoot 4K, because it can’t dissipate heat properly.

No word about higher capacity batteries.

End of the Rumor

As far as I know (but correct me if I’m wrong), the main sources of heat generation are:

  • Sensor
  • Processor
  • Batteries
  • Writing on SD-cards
  • Screen/EVF

Heat disspiation is a major problem with mirrorless cameras. Fujifilm could solve all problems, by making the X-T2 camera body significantly larger, but most of us love the compact size of the X-series mirroless cameras.

Also, if you want to maximize the power of the X-T2, you can’t really minimize the heat generated by the sensor, processor, EVF refresh rate or SD-card writing process. So the only thing left where Fujifilm could work on in order to solve the heat-issue are the batteries.
