  • mini screen for camera data or film simulation display
  • coming with new Classic Negative film simulation
  • made out of titanium
  • coming in 3 colors, Black, DURA Black, and DURA Silver
  • complete hybrid viewfinder re-design

The Rumors

  • X Processor 4
  • X Trans 4
  • In Camera Tone Curves and Clarity Adjustments
  • “Clarity setting” has been included as an image quality parameter to complement the existing Highlight Tone, Shadow Tone and Sharpness
  • no IBIS
  • ISO dial has a “C” instead of “H” (confirmed by leaked images)
  • leaked hands on images
  • leaked hands on video
  • 4K video
  • autofocus at the minimum luminance of -6EV
  • new HDR shooting function, which combines multiple continuously shot images of different exposure levels to expand the dynamic range. It produces natural tones without causing exaggerated amplification of colour tones
  • multiple exposures of up to 9 frames in the Additive, Average, Comparative Bright or Comparative Dark mode to combine images taken from multiple viewpoints or at different times into a single image
  • exterior made out of titanium, interior of magnesium alloy
  • 70 points of weather sealing. Works at -10℃
  • AF range limiter function – select from two preset values or use the focus ring to specify any focus range. This gives the focus preset function available to all XF lenses
  • EVF: 3.69-million-dot organic EL panel with high contrast ratio of over 1:5000 and the maximum luminance of 1500cd/m2 to display the finest details even in shadows and highlights. It covers 97% of the sRGB colour space
  • EVF has a “Smoothness priority” for equivalent refresh rate of approx. 200fps (recommended when you are taking pictures of fast moving subjects and need to track the erratic motion)
  • 1.62-million-dot high-resolution tilting LCD touchscreen display (tilts down 180 degrees)
  • rear 1.28-inch colour Memory LCD, protected with toughened glass, displays shooting settings regardless if the camera is turned on or not or Film Simulation, white balance and other image settings reminiscent of film cameras
  • Updated Black & White adjustment function called “Monochromatic Colour” function: choose the key colour from a matrix of Warm / Cool tones and Magenta / Green hues, incorporating the rich gradation into your images
  • The Grain Effect function, which simulates the photographic film, has been evolved so that you can adjust “strength” and “size” to attain a more precise control over graininess
  • Compatibility with 3rd party software has been improved so they can now read ratings given to pictures using the “Rating” function.
  • Q Button: You can now choose the number of icons to be displayed in the menu from 16, 12, 8 or 4. “Transparent” has been added as a new background option, allowing you to change the settings but ensuring you won’t miss a photo opportunity
  • USB-C
  • Size : 140.5 x 82.8 x 46.1mm
  • Weight : 497g
