Fujifilm Manager Says Fujifilm GFX100 has Less Noise than GFX50, Less than 10 fps, OIS/IBIS Combo, X-T3 AF Algorithm and More

Fujiflm GFX100

Fujifilm Manager Mr.Oishi was at the press event for the Fujifilm GFX system in Thailand and also chatted with the media.

The Thai youtube channel กล้องกล้วยกล้วย published 3 videos of the event, but only 2 are of interest for us (see them at the bottom of the article).

And since I don’t want you to lose as much time as I did by listening to Thai questions, the translations into English and then again the Thai translation, I decided to sum up the key points of both videos for you here on FujiRumors.

This and more for my beloved community on FujiRumors ;).

Fujiflm GFX100S with IBIS, Release in 2019 and Expected Price About as Much as Hasselbald X1D

Hungry for more?

Then let’s share the next bunch of rumors:

The Fujfilm GFX 100S is currently scheduled for 2019 (and not 2020). A source told me it expects to cost like the Hasselblad X1D ($9,000), so there will be a rather significant bump in price.

Moreover, a rumor that you should take with a grain of salt, I hear it might have IBIS, which would be awesome, since photographers love to adapt old third party glass on it, and they would all have it stabilized :)

Keep in mind… these are all long term rumors, and so take it with a grain of salt. And especially the IBIS rumor is to double confirm.

The next rumor is just around the corner… so stay tuned :)

THE ROADMAP FUJIFILM DOES NOT WANT YOU TO SEE

 

  • GF 250mm F4 (early 2018) – Announced
  • GF 35mm F2.8 (mid 2018)
  • GF 20-36mm F3.5-4.5 or GF 100-200mm F4.5-5.6 (end 2018. NOTE: Fujifilm says one of the two. Final decision has not yet been done)

Sony’s 100 Megapixel Medium Format Sensor – for Fujifilm GFX100S – will Shoot 4K and 8K. Ready in 2018

Fujifilm GFX100S

Back in March and April 2017, Sony officially presented to the world their future medium format sensors. There were three sensors, but relevant for Fuji Medium Format users, is the IMX461, a new 100 Megapixel 44x33mm medium format back illuminated sensor that will be ready for 2018.

Now more details have been disclosed by Sony about the next generation 44×33 MF sensor, which will very likely be the core of the new Fujifilm GFX100S.

Sony says it will be capable of 4K video at 30fps and 8K video at 18fps. It remains to see how much heat will be generated by the sensor/processor and if the Fujifilm GFX100S body can properly dissipate it.

And hopefully Fuji’s processor will be powerful enough to process the huge amount of data properly.

So what can we expect from the Fujifilm GFX100S?

  • 100 Megapixel
  • BSI sensor
  • 4K (maybe even 8K) video
  • less moiré due to the higher megapixel count
  • sharper than Japanese steel*
  • faster sensor readout allows…
  • … faster AF speed
  • … faster continous shooting
  • … better EVF refresh rate

*Fujifilm said that the GF lenses are designed to support 100MP resolution… so, even if it’s hard to believe given how sharp the GFX files already are, the GF lenses currently underperform on the GFX 50S.

The fact that the sensor will be ready for 2018, does not necessarily mean that the Fujifilm GFX100S will also hit the market in 2018.

Should Fujifilm Launch a Monochrome Camera? POLL

Fujifilm Monochrome

In the early days of FujiRumors, I asked you guys if you think Fujifilm should make a monochrome Fujifilm X series camera.

And in fact, there was a point in time, when a monochrome camera was an option on Fuji’s table.

So I launched a poll back in 2015, but the results where not in favor of a monochrome option, and I have been told by sources, that Fujifilm dropped monochrome plans after having seen our negative poll results.

But now, 5 years after the original monochrome survey and looking at the market situation now, do you still think that Fujifilm should not make a monochrome camera?

I know, developing a monochrome camera takes away R&D from other projects, because it is not as easy as just removing the color filter array on the sensor, at least not if you want to make thinks properly and good.

There is a lot more development that goes into it!

On the other hand, personally I think Fujifilm should offer something different at some point. A camera that is surely a niche project, but that would undermine one more time, that Fujifilm listens to customer needs, even if those needs are very specific.

Because as Fujifilm super-boss Toshi Ilda said in this interview,

the more we think about photographers, the more different styles of cameras we have to create. Fujifilm always thinks: what can this camera do for this kind of photographer

the center of photography is not the camera or equipment, but the photographer

And I believe, a monochrome camera would fit perfectly into Fuji’s philosophy! And for my taste, it should be an X100 style camera.

But I’d love to hear what you guys think about it.

And especially Fujifilm would like to get feedback, since it’s a known fact, that Fujifilm does watch the FujiRumors community closely, and with a bit of luck, they even take 1:1 our poll results and make them become reality :).

These Guys Switched from Full Frame to Fujifilm APS-C and Are Happy About it

Fujifilm Vs Full Frame

So it’s time for another comparisons roundup, this time focusing on people switching to Fujifilm APS-C from Sony, Nikon and Canon full frame, and believe it or not, they are happy with their switch!

In the Fujifilm world, if you really want a bigger sensor, you go Fujifilm GFX, which offers an almost 4 times bigger sensor than APS-C and hence can really offer that ultimate jump in image quality, that the jump from APS-C and FF can not offer.

And before you start complaining, we remind you that we have also shared dedicated roundups of people unhappy with Fujifilm.

New Fujifilm G Mount Roadmap Coming May 23

Fujifilm G Mount Roadmap

According a new source, along with the Fujifilm GFX100 announcement on May 23, Fujifilm will also unveil a new Fujinon G mount lens roadmap.

No reliable indication so far that also the Fujiflm X mount roadmap will be updated.

I remind you that back in February, at the wonderful Fujifilm X Summit in Dubai, Fujifilm asked users which Fujinon X and G lenses they should make next, giving us several options to vote for.

So here on FujiRumors we launched a lens poll, based on Fuji’s options, and 15,000+ of you voted. Check out the future lens wishlist result here.

Fujifilm also offered us a firmware wishlist, and 10,000 of you also voted on it. Check it out.

Did the Panasonic S1/R Fiasco Prove FUJIFILM Did Well to Skip Full Frame?

The Mirrorless Endgame

Some of you think that talking about “mirrorless endgame” or “mirrorless war” is a bit too dramatic. And yes, I actually agree with that, but also not!

I explain:

War” or “Endgame” suggest an epic fight with violent ending. That will definitely not happen. At least not with all camera brands.

While Samsung joined the mirrorless market spectacularly with the Samsung NX1 and left just as spectacularly, by capitulating overnight, other brands will quietly disappear, reducing their products cycles, their innovations, and one day, silently, just stop it all.

The harsh truth is: in a camera market shrinking that fast, it is not plausible to think that everybody will continue grow and prosper.

So we are in the endgame now.

The good news for us customers is: companies lower their prices, beef up their cameras, race for innovation, cover us with firmware love, and fight for every single one of us.

We, the customers, win in any case ;).
