RUMOR: New Film Simulation Coming with Fujifilm X-Pro3… and to Fujifilm X-T3, X-T30 and GFX100 via Firmware Update?

Fujifilm X-Pro3

The Fujifilm X-Pro3 will come with a new film simulation.

I think this rumor will not only make future Fujifilm X-Pro3 owners happy, but also owners of Fujifilm X-T3, X-T30, GFX100, since those cameras share the same X Processor 4 and this could mean Fujifilm can update those cameras with this new film simulation.

TO BE CLEAR: I have no rumors that Fujifilm will update all X Processor 4 cameras with this new film simulation.

Recently Elia Locardi met Minami-San, Fujifilm’s color guru for the last 50 years. Minami-San developed the original Fujifilm film colors and is now responsible for the film simulation development. You can read the whole story here.

Cameralabs published it’s full Sony A6600 review, Sony new flagship APS-C camera with IBIS.

He used both new lenses on the Sony A6600, the Sony E 16-55mm F2.8 G and the Sony E 70-350mm F4.5-6.3 G OSS.

Inevitabely, he often compared the Sony A6600 to the Fujifilm X-T3.

Now, I’ll skip the parts, where Cameralabs talks only about the Sony A6600, and highlight down below only those passages, where he mentions and compares it to the Fujifilm X-T3.

Fujifilm X-A7 Beats Fujifilm X-T3 Face/Eye Autofocus, but Firmware Update for X-T3 / X-T30 is Coming

Earlier today Fujifilm announced the Fujifilm X-A7, actually a very nice and capable camera. You can see the full X-A7 launch coverage here.

Among the others, the Fujifilm X-A7 comes with an improved face and eye detection autofocus, that, according to information Maarten Heilbron has received from Fujifilm, is better than the one on the Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm X-T30.

This is confirmed also by DPR, who said (also shared in our live blog):

Fujifilm has hinted that new AF algorithms will allow the X-A7 to perform as well or better than the X-T30/X-T3.

The good news:

As Maarten Heilbron disclosed in his Fujifilm X-A7 video shared in our live blogging, Fujifilm told him they will release a firmware update to bring the Fujifilm X-T3 and X-T30 eye/face AF on par with the Fujifilm X-A7.

Now, today Fujifilm also released a firmware update for the Fujifilm X-T3 (ver.3.01 here), but this just fixes a bug, and is NOT the firmware update Maarten is talking about.

FujiRumors already rumored, that Kaizen firmware updates are in the work and ready to be disclosed soon. They might bring AF improvements, as Maarten says, but also other new features, like the “live light trail“, also already available on the X-A7, and of course you can see this feature in action at our X-A7 live blog.

I know that’s a lot of information for our fellow American readers, who just woke up and suddenly have to digest all this info, so make sure to check back our previous articles.

Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 to be Sold as Fujifilm X-T3 Kit Lens towards End of 2019

When the Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 was launched back in July, I wondered why Fujifilm didn’t give us the option to buy it bundled with any Fuji X series camera.

Some FR-readers said it’s because the lens is not yet available, but IMHO, this does not make sense, since Fujifilm could simply take pre-orders on a camera/lens bundle, just as they take pre-orders on the lens only.

So I hit up a couple of sources, and I got the following answer.

The Fujinon XF16-80mm f/4 will be initially sold only separately (it will ship September), but towards the end of the year, Fujifilm will offer it as a bundle with the Fujifilm X-T3.

So, if you plan to purchase both, the Fujifilm X-T3 and the XF16-80mm f/4, then I strongly recommend you not to purchase both items separately in September, but wait a few weeks until the bundle X-T3/16-80 bundle is out, since you might save a few bucks.

The sources specifically mentioned the bundle with Fujifilm X-T3 and did not mention other cameras. Which does not mean other bundles can’t be included.

Summer is almost over, and the time for rumors is coming!

JJC Releases Affordable Metal Hand Grip for Fujifilm X-T3, X-T2, X-T30 and X-T20

JJC Fujifilm Hand Grips

The Chinese company JJC has just released the Arca-Swiss compatible JJC FUJIFILM X-T3 / X-T2 hand grip as well as the JJC FUJIFILM X-T30 / X-T20 / X-T10 hand grip.

These grips are even cheaper than the Chinese Meike grip for X-T3 and for X-T30, not to talk of the rather pricey original Fujifilm grip.

  • Made of premium aluminum alloy and microfiber leather – Provides a comfortable, stable and secure grip for long time usage
  • Accurate accesses design – Allow you to get to the camera battery without taking the grip off and you still have a standard 1/4″ socket for mounting it on a tripod too
  • Chamfer design on the bottom – The cut outs on the bottom does not get in the way of the moving LCD or any of the camera controls
  • Specifically designed for Fujifilm X-T3 and X-T2 Mirrorless camera, replaces Fujifilm MHG-XT3 and MHG-XT2 hand grip (Please note it does not fit the old Fujifilm X-T1 camera!)
  • A must have accessory for anyone with medium, large and up size hands or those who worry about dropping these compact expensive cameras with sleek body

I do receive lots of email requests from fellow Fuji X shooters asking to be featured. And it is my pleasure to cut out regulary a space for you guys here on FujiRumors.

However, the requests are many, and the content on FujiRumors is overall very rich, so sometimes it takes a bit longer to be featured.

But I don’t forget any single one of you, and you’ll all be featured at some point. I just ask for a little bit of patience :).
