The Fujifilm X-T4 countdown is running

Fujifilm X-T4

Back in November 2019, FR-reader and X-T member J., shared a bunch of details he heard about the Fujifilm X-T4.

Here is his list:

  • X-T4 with IBIS
  • fully articulating flippy…essentially a Panasonic S1H
  • expect a T4 about 1/3 of an inch thicker, and about 5-6oz heavier
  • On a good note expect 6k60 and 10bit internal
  • anamorphic ratio
  • release end of 2020
  • X-H line most likely canceled

I tell you, it’s hard to get all rumors right all the time, especially long term rumors. Sometimes you follow the right hint, but the devil is in the details.

And today, we have to correct such a detail.

According to our trusted sources, the Fujifilm X-T4 will not have the Panasonic S1H flippy screen, but it will use the same mechanism of the Fujifilm X-T200 and Fujifilm X-A7. You can see the difference between the two screens in this article, where you can also vote on which tilt screen design you prefer.

And since J. list has spread like fire on the internet, today on FujiRumors we would like to bring some order in the chaos.

Hence, here is what our sources can confirm, what they say is wrong, and what none of our sources could confirm until now.

  • X-T4 with IBIS – CORRECT however, this comes unsurprisingly, as Fujifilm repeatedly said they will make IBIS smaller and fit it in smaller cameras
  • fully articulating flippy – CORRECT…essentially a Panasonic S1HWRONG it will have Fujifilm X-T200 mechanism
  • expect a T4 about 1/3 of an inch thicker, and about 5-6oz heavier – UNCONFIRMED
  • On a good note expect 6k60 and 10bit internal – WRONGread this rumor
  • anamorphic ratio – UNCONFIRMED
  • release end of 2020 – WRONG you can see date and time of Fujifilm X-T4 announcement in this article
  • X-H line most likely canceled – WRONG (according to our sources and Fujifilm Japan manager statement)

I can assure you, that what FujiRumors says in regard to Fujifilm X-T4 (and all other rumors), is 100% accurate.

Please stay tuned… more big are rumors coming ;).

Fujifilm X-T4

We want to start this rumor, by giving credit, where credit really belongs.

Hence, credit goes to J. from our fantastic X-T group, as he was the very first to tell to the Fujifilm world about the Fujifilm X-T4 with selfie flippy screen back on November 21, 2019 here. J. wrote:

fully articulating flippy…essentially a Panasonic S1H but APS-C with Fuji color and obviously much smaller

Well, FujiRumors made its checks (also thanks to new sources!), and we can now confirm that the Fujifilm X-T4 will indeed have a flippy screen.

If that’s a good news or not, feel free to let us know in the survey down below.

And what else did J. tell us about the Fujifilm X-T4? Well, here is the rest of his list:

  • X-T4 with IBIS
  • expect a T4 about 1/3 of an inch thicker, and about 5-6oz heavier
  • On a good note expect 6k60 and 10bit internal
  • anamorphic ratio
  • release end of 2020
  • X-H line most likely canceled

The Fujifilm X-T4 release end of 2020 is not correct. The official Fuji X-T4 announcement is set for February 26. And as we hear from our sources (and top Fujifilm managers confirm), the Fujifilm X-H2 is still on the roadmap, but not for 2020.

But J. got the IBIS right and the selfie screen. And it’s objectively not easy to get long term rumors right, as Fujifilm is prone to plan changes. So what J. told us might have been correct at the time of sharing, but could be partially no longer valid now.

So, we keep up working, and will try to deliver you more rumors in the next few days and weeks. Stay tuned.

Inside the Fujifilm Factory with Lok: Assemblling the Fujifilm GFX100 and the Discontinued Fujifilm X-H1

Lok brings you inside the Fujifilm factory in Sendai, Japan.

The first thing he shows, is part of the assembly of the Fujifilm GFX100. Lok is surprised to see that so much of the assembly is done by hand.

You also see how meticulously every smallest dust particle is removed from the sensor and the lenses.

Lok then tries to apply the rubber texture to a Fujifilm X-H1, but what looks easy in skilled hands, turns out to much more difficult to do if you are not trained for it.

And if you wonder, why a Fujifilm X-H1, well, I believe the tour dates back to May/June 2019, when we already shared a couple of similar Fujifilm Sendai factory tour videos.

At that time, Fujifilm only stopped selling Fujifilm X-H1 body only, but they where still producing it, since it had a big revival pushed by the Fujifilm X-H1 + vertical grip combo deals.

Here on FujiRumors, the Fujifilm X-H1 even beat the Fujifilm X-T3 in terms of overall 2019 sales, thanks to this deal.

The production of Fujifilm X-H1 probably only ended in the second half of 2019.

You can see the full factory tour video below.

EXCLUSIVE: Fujifilm X100V with 2 way Tilt Screen

Fujifilm X100V

Hey guys, had a good weekend? I hope so.

I thought we start the week with something fun… a nice rumor, courtesy of a kind source (thanks) :).

Back in November 2, there was an original report on dpreview, that said:

I also got a little bit of gossip from the Fujifilm rep on the x100 refresh: He said that he has seen three mock ups of potential designs, two of which have flip screens (with one modelled on the Xpro3’s).

That triggered a wave of disinformation, claiming the X100V would have the X-Pro3 hidden screen.

FujiRumors tried to stop this speculation immediately on November 3 here, by telling you the Fujifilm X100V will not have the Fujifilm X-Pro3 screen.

Today, thanks to our fantastic sources, we would like to disclose the full truth: the Fujifilm X100V will have a 2 way tilt screen!

Now, you know I shoot X-E3, so tilt screens are not a priority for me. But it’s also true that shooting from the hip can come in quite handy during street photography, as Zack Arias has shown here (go to minute 0:40).

So there will be some who love the idea of a tilt screen, others will hate it. Let us know in the survey what’s your take on this.

Fujifilm X100V with 2 way tilt screen, a good Idea?

EXCLUSIVE: No New Fujifilm GFX Camera Coming in 2020. We have to Wait until 2021 – Trusted Source

Fujifilm GFX

Hey folks!

I have a very important update for you.

I recently got dozen of emails of worried people, who were about to order a Fujifilm GFX 50S/R camera.

The reason?

Everybody thought, that the last mysterious registered camera, the FF190003, would be a GFX camera, and hence they would buy gear that would be about to be replaced.

But after FujiRumors unveiled them all (X-T4, X-T200 and X100V), they proceeded with their order.

With the name of all imminent cameras leaked, everybody came to the logical conclusion, that there are no GFX cameras that are close to releasing.

But I am here today to tell you it is actually worse than that!

Thanks to our trusted sources, I am now able to tell you, that there will NOT be ANY new Fujifilm GFX camera in 2020!

I believe that the Fujifilm GFX has a enormous potential and if developed at a proper pace, could be a fantastic alternative to all other camera systems out there.

By waiting so long with new GFX cameras, the risk is that Fujifilm could miss the boat and lose the momentum that is bringing so many full frame shooters into the GFX system.

But let’s try to see things positive:

  • if you purchase a GFX now, you can be sure you won’t be surprised by any successor in 2020
  • the long wait could mean that Fujifilm does not want to offer a minor MKII upgrade, but something more substantial
  • Fujifilm could free up resources to put into the development of Fujinon GFX lenses

Anyway, in 2020, the Fujifilm GFX camera lineup will still consist in:

So this will be the first year, where we do not get a new Fujifilm GFX camera.

BREAKING: Fujifilm X-T3 Successor Shipping in March/Early Spring 2020 – TRUSTED SOURCE

Fujifilm X-T3 Successor

Ok, let’s rock it!

According to our trusted sources, the Fujifilm X-T3 successor will start shipping in March/early spring.

This comes surprising, as if we take a look at the complete Fujifilm X cameras release timeline, if Fujifilm would have kept their usual X-T refresh-pace, it should have come around September 2020.

But this time Fujifilm decided to anticipate the release by half a year, replacing the glorious Fujifilm X-T3 just 1.5 years later.

Now, I do not know if it will be called Fujifilm X-T4, or Fujifilm X-T5 or Fujifilm X-T3s or whatever. What I know, is that it will ship very soon.

Oh, it’s from trusted sources, so you are not allowed to doubt this rumor, but you are allowed to share the good news… and of course quote and link FujiRumors as the source, don’t “forget” that ;).

And stay tuned… as more is coming soon on FujiRumors only, of course.

Top Sellers 2019: Fujifilm X-H1 Glory, Viltrox Rise, Fujicron Love, Capture One Triumph and More

A long and exciting year is ending, and let’s see which one was the favorite gear of the FujiRumors community in 2019.

Keep in mind this are the last days, where you can save big on most of the gear listed below. So make sure to check out the massive official Fujifilm X and GFX deals (exp. Jan.5)

TOP SELLING PRODUCT OVERALL

  1. Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD

The Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD are officially recommended by Fujifilm to charge your cameras, while in use or when switched off. All details here.

TOP SELLING ACCESSORIES

  1. Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD
  2. Textured Rubber Grip Stickers Black
  3. Haoge LH-X13 Bayonet Square Metal Lens Hood for Fujifilm
  4. SanDisk 128GB Ultra Dual Drive USB Type-C – USB-C, USB 3.1

I bought the SanDisk 128GB dual USB-drive myself, as I own a MacBook Pro with USB-C only, but my school still uses computers with USB 3 and also on travels, when I need to print a flight ticket and ask the reception to do so, they usually do not have USB-C connection. This SanDisk 128GB dual USB-drive solved this problem, as it works with both, and is also extremely small.

It was the 4th best selling item this year, and I decided to add it in the list, to let you know that you currently save 62% on San Disk dual drive.

The textured rubber grip costs only $10 and you can see here how it improves the grip and also protects it.

TOP SELLING CAMERAS

  1. Fujifilm X-H1
  2. Fujifilm X-T3
  3. Fujifilm X-T30 (but X-Pro3 would have deserved it, as I explain below)

The terrific rebate on X-H1 pushed it on the top of the ranking for 2019. The Fujifilm X-H1 is discontinued, but you still can find last samples in some stores. Check stock at BHphoto, Adorama, AmazonUS, Focuscamera.

The Fujifilm X-T30 made it on the ranking, thanks to a huge deal on AmazonUS that was evidently an error, which Amazon decided to honour.

But if it wasn’t for the error X-T30 deal, the Fujifilm X-Pro3 would have taken that spot easily.

TOP SELLING LENS OVERALL

  1. Fujinon XF35mm f/2

Last year this category was won by Laowa 9mm F2.8 Zero-D, but this year Fujinon takes back the top spot, with the much loved Fujinon XF35mm f/2.

TOP SELLING FUJINON X LENSES

  1. Fujinon XF 35mm f/2
  2. Fujinon XF 50mm f/2
  3. Fujinon XF 16-80mm f/4

Small, affordable, great quality: that’s the winning formula of Fujicron line, which is an absolute favorite for you.

The Fujinon XF 16-80mm f/4 enjoys the advantage of being a brand new lens. Let’s see if it will be in the ranking also next year.

TOP SELLING GFX GEAR

Huge interest also here on FujiRumors for the stellar Fujifilm GFX100.

Regarding lenses, GFX shooters went mostly either for super compact (GF50mm f/3.5) or super fast (GF110mm f/2)

TOP SELLING THIRD PARTY LENSES

  1. Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 autofocus lens
  2. Mitakon Speedmaster 35mm f/0.95
  3. Neewer 35mm F1.2

Given the success of the Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 autofocus lens, I am sure many of us can’t wait for the new Viltrox autofocus trinity to come early 2020.

  • read here – The Rise of Chinese Lenses and Top 7 Chinese Fujifilm X Mount Lenses

The Meike Neewer 35mm F1.2 was already very cheap, but thanks to a further price reduction, it is now that cheap, that even more decided to give it a try.

TOP SELLING SOFTWARE

  1. Capture One 20
  2. Luminar 4
  3. Adobe Creative Cloud

If 2018 saw the rise of Capture One among Fujifilm shooters, 2019 saw the final and definitive triumph!

And after a summer passed on my mountains and editing images, the inevitable happened: also FujiRumors left Lightroom for Capture One!

Luminar 4 is on a worthy and respectable 2nd place, and it will be the next software, I will deeply look into. Will it be able to dethrone Capture One for my editing? Stay on FujiRumors, and I will let you know ;).

The Rumor Year 2019: The Right, the Wrong and the Still to Come!

The Rumor Year 2019

As you know, I am a teacher, and usually it’s me, who has to judge and give votes to others.

But not today, as it’s time for our yearly 2019 rumors check, and to see if I did my homework well or not.

Also, there will be an accuracy rating of those rumors, that still could not be verified.

Keep in mind, there could be further rumors before the end of the year, in which case I will update this list!

Ready? Cool, so let’s start,

But be warned: I will be incredible severe to myself, as I will include in the wrong rumor section, rumors that were actually correct at the time of sharing, but just turned out wrong because Fujifilm changed plans.

It’s the case for example of the new lens roadmaps. In fact, just a few days after our rumor, top Fujifilm manager confirmed here, that indeed there would have been new roadmaps in 2019, but 2019 is now ending, and nothing came. So I was wrong, but so was the top Fujifilm manager.

DPRTV 2020 Camera Companies Resolutions: Fujifilm Should Merge X-T and X-H Line and Sony Steal Fujifilm Colors

2020 Camera Resolutions

DPReviewTV has published their 2020 resolutions for every camera company, of course including Fujifilm.

Regarding Fujifilm, they say:

When asked if Fujifilm should merge X-T and X-H line, most of you guys voted you prefer to keep both lines well separated, and I believe that would make sense, for the reasons I explained in this article.

What I believe would make sense, though, is to give us a Fujifilm X-T4 with IBIS and maybe a bigger battery. Do that, and you’ll make tons of Fujifilm shooters happy.

I am not sure about the Fujifilm X-A7 flippy screen, though, as this would make it tilt in the wrong direction, when shooting portraits. Maybe that’s more something for the Fujifilm X-H2.

Neopan 400 is a much loved film, as you can see from these customer reviews. So make it happen, Fuji!

As recently measured, Fujifilm has currenty the worse face/eye AF. But I would not worry about that too much. A major improvement is coming via firmware, soon.

You can see the full video above, where, among the others, the recommend Sony to steal Fujifilm colors ;).
