PhotoKina 2018 is Ready for Fujifilm GFX 50R and Fujifilm GFX 100S at 07:30 AM EST and FujiRumors is There for You!

FujiKina

Today Fujifilm will unveil the Fujifilm GFX 50R and the Fujifilm GFX 100S. The press event starts at 07:30 AM New York time.

And yep, I am here at Photokina 2018, and today I smuggled myself through the security controls and took a look at the Fujifilm booth, which they are building up right now.

Sadly the press conference room is under the highest level of control, and no chance to enter without press-card.

However, I noticed 2 Fuji guys entering the press hall, and one was holding a rangefinder medium format film camera in his hand (maybe the Fujifilm GF670, but it was hard to see exactly).

It’s pretty clear that they are going to show their rangefinder medium format heritage to the press, and then unveil the long rumored Fujifilm GFX 50R (which you can see who it looks like here).

Of course I will be live blogging non stop, so make sure to stay tuned on FujiRumors via Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed and Twitter and to join our Fujiflm GFX facebook group as well as our Fujifilm GFX page.

P.S.: and of course on the way to Cologne I stopped at the Oktoberfest… it was simply fantastic… at least so they told me, since I can’t remember that much ;). But now I am back full power and ready for the ultimate blogging on FujiRumors!

Fujifilm X-H1 IBIS Will NOT Have Sensor Shift Multishot Feature

Fujifilm X-T2S… No Sensor Shift Multishot

UPDATE: Fujifilm changed the name from X-T2s to X-H1. All rumored specs remain the same

Hey folks,

I have a quick update regarding the Fujifilm X-T2S, Fujifilm first camera with IBIS (in body image stabilization).

I hear it will not have the “Sensor Shift Multishot” feature, present in cameras like the Olympus OM-D E-M5 II.

What is it?

You basically press the shutter 1 time, but the camera takes multiple images by slightly moving the sensor and combining those exposures to create one high-resolution image.

With this technology, the Olympus EM-5 can take 40MP images with its 16MP sensor. Keep in mind that it works properly only if your subject stands perfectly still.

Fujifilm’s First Steps into IBIS

Recently, thanks to this interesting video by Demos Soupashis, we wondered: do we need already an X-T2S with IBIS? Wouldn’t it be better to wait a bit longer, and offer IBIS on the X-T3, which should be overall a much more upgraded product (new sensor etc)?

Well, I have to agree with some of you guys, like azbest and Didiergm, when you say here:

Engineers need time to learn & try; The first IBIS implementation might not be perfect or might not push the technology to it’s limits as these things take time

The X-T2S will be Fuji’s first step into the world of IBIS (well, actually it’s this Fujifilm camera already), and if we want a mature and top notch IBIS system on the Fujifilm X-T3, then Fujifilm has to launch it now on the X-T2S and gather experience from it, improve it, learn.

And one thing Fujifilm can not offer, at least for the start, is the sensor shift multishot technology.

Will sensor shift maybe come one day via firmware update to the X-T2S? Will it come with the X-T3? Or it simply can’t be done with (current?) X-Trans sensors? Questions, I’ll try to answer you as soon as possible.

stay tuned… more is coming :)

What’s Next From Fujifilm… and What You Might Have Missed This Summer!

Hey X-folks…

I really hope you had (and are still having) a fantastic summer.

I hope you could travel, see new cities, taste new food, climb some mountains, play with the waves in the sea, photograph something that inspired you… and especially I hope you had time for your families, friends… and for yourself.

But also during this summer, FujiRumors worked restlessly on the rumors and news… and it was so busy, that you might have missed a few rumors and news during your summer break.

So I thought it could be useful to give you guys an overview of what happened over the summer in the Fuji World… also in the hope this can somehow mitigate your pain for going back at work… at least a bit… because AWESOME FUJI TIMES are coming :)

have a GREAT Sunday,

FLASH News & Rumors

Fujifilm Lens Roadmap Updates to be Announced Soon

September 7 (if that’s really the date) will be a terrific Fuji announcements day :)

In addition to the Fujifilm X-E3, the Fujinon XF80mm Macro and the Fujinon GF45mm, I hear that Fujifilm will also release “lens roadmap updates“.

We already leaked the internal G-mount lens roadmap back in April here, and regarding the X-mount lens roadmap, the hottest rumored lenses are the XF200mmF2, the XF8-16mmF2.8 and the XF18mmF2 MKII.

I will be ready, sleepless and high on caffeine, to deliver you guys, as usual, the best, fastest and most comprehensive live blogging on the web. Stay tuned on Facebook, RSS-feed and Twitter.

Fujifilm X-E3 Wrap-Up And Mock-Up!

The Fujifilm X-E3 will very likely be launched on September 7 at Fuji’s “Fujkina” event in Toyko, and probably along with other Fuji gear.

In order to manage his impatience, FR-reader Miko created his own mock-up of the Fujifilm X-E3, based on the X-E3 rumors and leaked images, which I’m happy to share today here on Fujirumors. Centered hot shoe, shutter/ISO dial combo, front dial, AF-assist light moved higher, no pop up flash… and super-sexy  :)

I’m here… back from holidays, and 100% focused on the rumors and announcements (on September 7). Hope you will stick around on FujiRumors… and feel free to follow Fujirumors on Facebook, RSS-feed, Twitter.

And now, time for an overview of rumored X-E3 specs:

Obvious Fujifilm X-E3 specs

  • 24MP X-Trans III sensor
  • X-Processor Pro
  • Acros film simulation

Not Rumored, but Possible X-E3 specs

IBIS, really?

In the comments and at our facebook page, there was some confusion. People thought FR has said the X-E3 will have IBIS. Well, although I actually realize that no source explicitly told me that it will NOT have IBIS, I feel quite confident to say that the X-E3 won’t have IBIS. So, although not rumored by FR-sources, I say….

  • no IBIS

I guess all the confusion comes from the following rumors

  • Fujifilm X-T2 Successor to be Called Fujifilm X-T2S – read here
  • Fujifilm X-T2S will have IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization) – read here
  • Don’t Worry, Fujifilm X-T2S In Body Image Stabilization (IBIS) will Work with ALL Fujinon X-Mount Lenses – read here

Rumored Fujifilm X-E3 specs

Firmware Updates for Fujifilm GFX 50S, X-Pro2, X-T2, X-T20 and X100F Available

Fujifilm just released new firmware that fixes the following issues:

  • The phenomenon is fixed that in the MF mode, repeated halfway shutter pressing can shift the focus point under a specific exposure condition.
  • The phenomenon is fixed that in the AF-S mode, repeated halfway shutter pressing can shift the focus point with SHUTTER AF setting OFF.

The following cameras can be updated:

Don’t forget… big Fuji Party on September 7… these will be great weeks here on Fujirumors… so stick around ;)

New Fujifilm X-T20 Firmware Ver. 1.02 is Out (but Not Yet for Official Download)… Other Fuji Cameras to Get New Firmware, too?

There is a new firmware update on the way for the Fujifilm X-T20 (and maybe for other Fujifilm cameras too?)

A FR-reader just received back his Fujifilm X-T20 from repair, and he saw that his Fujifilm X-T20 has already firmware 1.02 installed (latest official version is 1.01).

When will Fujifilm release firmware 1.02 for every X-T20 owner?

As we told you earlier today here on Fujirumors, Fujifilm will have a big Fujikina event on September 7. That could be a good date to release the latest firmware update for X-T20… but I have no rumored date for now.

What we have seen in the past, is that Fujifilm usually releases updates for several cameras on the very same day, so I wouldn’t be surprised if also other Fujifilm cameras will get an update. But also in this case, just a speculation of mine.

Anyway… whatever comes, I’m 100% focussed to give you guys the fastest udpates, the most reliable rumors and the freshest news in the Fuji world.

*** The fact that Fujirumors is consistently the first to break the news and rumors, is only made possible thanks to your support. By sharing with FR, you allow me to keep the entire Fuji World up to date (and excited) in real-time. I couldn’t do all this alone, so thanks so much for your help… and feel free to keep up sharing… I can’t wait to see what you guys spot next :)
