If the Fujifilm X-T3 had IBIS, would You Prefer it over the Fujifilm X-H2?

Fujifilm X-H2

Recently we launched an interesting poll (almost 7,000 votes), where we could see that most FR-readers are waiting for the Fujifilm X-H2 and hence did not buy the Fujifilm X-T3.

But I wonder, is it only because the Fuji X-H2 will have IBIS, or do you simply overall prefer the ergonomics of the Fujifilm X-H2 over the Fuji X-T3?

Well, let’s try to find it out with todays’ survey.

So, imagine the Fujifilm X-T3 would have IBIS, and hence be equal to the Fujifilm X-H2 in terms of specs, and the only difference between the X-T3 and X-H2 would be the ergonomics, which one would you buy?

As a FR-reader told me, the same questions has been shared at dpreview here, but the poll there did get only 59 votes.

The unique thing about FujiRumors (and the reason why Fujifilm does read this website and your comments), is that FR brings together the by very far largest group of Fujifilm X and GFX shooters, hence polls always get a few thousands of votes within a single day and the comment section is always very lively.

So let’s try to launch the survey here on FR. Feel free to vote it down below.

If the Fujifilm X-H2 and X-T3 would have equal specs (X-T3 with IBIS), which one would you get?

Fujifilm X-H2: Are You Waiting for X-H2 to Upgrade/Switch or Did you Get the Fujifilm X-T3 Already? POLL

Fujifilm X-H2

After the announcement of the Fujifilm X-T3, I get countless emails, asking me when the Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-Pro3, Fujifilm X-T30, Fujifilm X-E4, Fujfiilm X100V or Fujifilm X200 with latest X-Trans sensor 4 and X Processor 4 will come.

I am working on this, and I will post updates on FR as soon as I can. So make sure not to miss them by following us on Facebook, RSS-feed, Instagram, Youtube and Twitter.

One of the guys, asking me about the Fujifilm X-H2 is FR Sacha, who wrote me:

What would you think of running a poll to get a feel for the interest with the Fujifilm X-H2?

More specifically to have an idea of how many users didn’t upgrade to the X-T3, and are actually waiting on the Fuji XH2. This is something I see come back a lot in the comments of the X-T3 reviews so I’d be curious to see what a poll would look like. It could even motivate Fujifilm to hasten the X-H2’s release date, after seeing the results of the poll :)

One note: I feel people waiting on the Fujifilm X-H2 are actually mostly non-fuji users who want to switch to Fuji but maybe are still on the fence and would like the “whole package” with IBIS to really switch. So maybe the results for Fuji users could be a bit less in “favor” of the X-H2.”

And since your participation, ideas and contributions are the heart and soul of this blog, I will be happy to take Sacha’s advice and make a poll out of it.

Check out the poll below… and read the options carefully ;)

LOL: Fujifilm Already Sells Fujifilm X-H2… Fixing Bugs with New Cameras Instead of Firmware Updates Like Sony? ;)

As basically every new camera when it hits the market, also the Fujifilm X-H1 has some bugs.

Usually Fujifilm fixes these via firmware updates, which costs Fujifilm money to develop.

So it seems they are now going a smarter way, the Sony solution, and they simply kick out a successor immediatly, that fixes those bugs. :)

Obviously this is just a typo spotted by photographyblog. But since we are here already, let us know what you would like to see in a Fujifilm X-H2.

New Fujifilm Financial Results: Instax Declines, Mirrorless Suffers, Revenue Down 12.4% but Fujifilm GFX100 Sells Strong!

Fujifilm Fiscal Year Report

Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Sony and others have already reported their financial results.

Most of them are devastating bad. Sony is doing best, even though even Sony has to record a -3,4% sale decrease.

And Fujifilm?

Well, Fujifilm now published their financial results for the this quarter (ends September 30, 2019) and the numbers are not good either*.

Fujifilm’s cashcow Instax keeps slowing down, and digital camera sales suffer strong. All this results in a revenue decrease for the imaging division of 12.4%.

But Fujifilm remains optimistic and says:

we will further enhance the sales by providing products with competitive advantages utilizing our unique technologies, and by running effective promotions to achieve a performance target.

The only camera Fujifilm mentions clearly positively, is the Fujifilm GFX100, which enjoyed “strong sales“. And that must be right, since 6 months after announcement, the camera is still hard to find on the market.

FujiRumors recommends:

Dear Fujifilm, do you know that plan not to release any Fujifilm X-H2 not even in 2020? Forget that! Give us the Fujifilm X-H2 now with Samsung/Fujifilm ISOCELL+ sensor technology, and you’ll see the numbers go positive again. And a Fujifilm X-T4 with IBIS could help, too! Hurry up!

Fujifilm GFX 100: B&H Photo, AmazonUS, Adorama, Focuscamera

* As it always leads to confusion, we remind fellow readers that the Japanese fiscal year 2020 is divided as follows:
   – 1st quarter: April to June 2019 (revenue down 15%)
   – 2nd quarter: July to September 2019 (revenue down 12.4%)
   – 3rd quarter: October to December 2019 (to be determined)
   – 4rd quarter: January to March 2020 (to be determined)

This is How Fujifilm Welcomes Xiaomi Mi Note 10 108 Megapixel Samsung/Fujifilm ISOcell Sensor

in the green box: the original image shared by Fujifilm China

Fujifilm China has apparently given a warm welcome to the 100 megapixel Xiaomi CC9 Pro (or Xiaomi Mi Note 10), which features a 108 megapixel camera.

[google translated] 100 million pixels: Welcome new members!

And in the comments Fujifilm China say:

Encourage Xiaomi’s innovation for mobile phones

The image shared at the official Fujifilm China weibo page, shows a little box inside the massive Fujifilm GFX100 sensor, which has the size of the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 sensor.

Now why should Fujifilm do this? Here a few options:

  1. sympathy: they simply welcome another 100 megapixel camera
  2. mockery: they make fun out of of the small sensor (that would be such a bad taste)
  3. conspiracy: they hint to some secret future Fujifilm development
  4. proudly: Fujifilm co-develops the sensor inside the Xiamo Mi Note 10
  5. randomly: that little box and the whole post of Fujifilm mean nothing

I think we can agree that there is nothing more fun than a conspiracy theory, so I will focus on that one :).

New Fujifilm FF190005 Camera Registered – Two Fuji Cameras Coming Soon?

Fujifilm has registered yet another camera, the FF190005.

This means we now have two more cameras (in addition to the X-Pro3) coming in not so distant future:

Usually it takes 1 to 3 months (but in some cases also 6 months), until a registered camera is officially announced.

Many are dreaming of Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-T4, Fujifilm X100V (X200). Follow FujiRumors, to find out the truth ;).

Fujifilm X Summit September 20: Big Announcements, Cool Insights and New Lens/Firmware Roadmaps?

Fujifilm X Summit

Fujifilm just announced the Fujifilm X Summit for September 20 at 1PM GMT. This means it will take place at:

  • 9AM New York Time
  • 3PM Berlin Time

There will be a LIVE STREAMING here on FujiRumors.

Fujifilm writes about the event:

Following the first round in Dubai, we are pleased to announce that the second X Summit will be held on September 20th 1PM GMT!

This time, the X Summit will be held in Shibuya, Tokyo – the mecca of street photography in Tokyo. What will happen this time?

Make sure to tune in on September 20th.

Now, Fujifilm can’t tell you this, but of course they mean to stay tuned on FujiRumors for non stop real time coverage, just as we did last time back in February with the Dubai X Summit. ;)

So, make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed, Youtube, Flipboard and Twitter.

What Will Happen?

Let’s take a look what Fujifilm did at the last Fujifilm X summit in Dubai:

  • they asked the Fujifilm community to vote on future lenses
  • they asked the Fujifilm community to vote on future firmware
  • they showed early Fujifilm GFX concepts, including a modular GFX
  • Fujifilm engineers talked about the X and GFX lenses and camera development
  • Fujifilm managers showed us mock-ups of future lenses such as the the XF33mmf/1.0
  • the showed a Fujifilm GFX100 prototype
  • they explained the Fujifilm color science approach
  • there was a Q&A with the community

That’s about it, and for a compact summary of the entire X Summit of February, just check out this article.

Now, you can see that Fujifilm actually did NOT announce any new gear at the last X summit, so chances are, that also this time we won’t get a full and final announcement of any new camera or lens.

In fact, our sources confirm that the final announcement with full specs and pre-orders for the Fujifilm X-Pro3 will happen on the second half of October.

However…

I know many of you are hoping to see a Fujifilm X-H2 or maybe a Fujifilm X-T3s with IBIS.

I have not heard about it, and if something like this comes, it was Fujifilm’s best kept secret ever. But yes, there is this third mysterious camera registered, and if it comes out 2019, then I honestly have no idea what it could be.

You guys, though, seem to be much more confident: you see high chances for a Fujifilm X-H2 or X100V (but X100V will surely come in 2020 only)

What can be expect more realistically?

Well, the main course of the meal could be other things, like:

Also, there will be several Fujifilm managers to go on stage and give us technical insights, disclose further projects, show even more mock-ups and more. Also gifted photographers like Bert Stephani, David Hobby and Tomasz Lazar will be there.

One Thing is Sure!

One thing is sure:

September 20 will be a very exciting day for the Fujifilm community, and my fast fingers will cover the event at 360° non stop, to make sure you at home don’t miss a single tidbit.
