AmazonUS Tells People the Sony A6500 is an Upgrade to the Fujifilm X-T3

AmazonUS is telling people, that the Sony A6500 is an upgrade to the Fujifilm X-T3.

That’s a nice Sony advertising :).

If I was Fujifilm USA, I’d contact AmazonUS and ask to correct this as soon as possible… or at least to add to the recommended items for the Sony A6500 some professional heat resistant gloves.

Just kidding guys, both great cameras in their own way. We will have enough “heavy” topics to discuss in the next few weeks, that starting this week with some lightness can’t hurt.

Panasonic S1R vs Fujifilm GFX50R and Panasonic S1 vs Fujifilm X-T3 – Let the Unfair Comparisons Begin

Panasonic vs Fujifilm

Some will call it unfair comparisons, but here on FujiRumors we think every comparison is unfair, unless you compare exactly the same two cameras with the same firmware.

And since everything is unfair, everything goes.

So let’s compare the upcoming Panasonic S1R and S1 (live coverage on L-Rumors) to the Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm GFX 50R.

So, with the help of apotelyt, let’s start!

Fujifilm X-T3 Firmware 2.10 Coming February 7 and Fujifilm X-H1 Firmware 2.01 Released

Fujifilm just released Fujifilm X-H1 firmware update ver. 2.01.

  • Fujifilm X-H1 firmware 2.01 – download here
    The phenomenon is fixed that in rare cases, recorded images can be overexposed

Fujifilm also finally told us that they will release Fujifilm X-T3 firmware ver.2.10 on February 7, which will remove the 4GB record size limit.

  • Regarding the new function “Recording over 4GB movie file as one file” which was planned to add to the firmware Ver.2.00, we plan to release the upgraded firmware Ver.2.10 on 7 Feb 2019.

As I told you yesterday, Fujifilm is rumored to have a bigger firmware update ready for the Fujifilm X-T3 in spring.

Major Fujifilm X-T3 Firmware Update Coming in Spring 2019

Fujifilm X-T3 Firmware Update

Back on November 13, Fujifilm promised to release a major firmware update for Fujifilm X-T3 in December, which would, amongst the others, remove the 4GB file record limit.

Fujifilm did indeed release Fujifilm X-T3 firmware ver. 2.0 on December 17, but it did not include the removal of the 4GB recording limit.

All Fujifilm told us was:

Regarding the new function “Recording over 4GB movie file as one file” which was planned to add to the firmware Ver.2.00, we will announce the schedule to release the firmware with the function in January 2019

I started to get many requests on my Facebook and Twitter page, so, while waiting for Fujifilm to disclose more details, I reached out to some of my sources.

The initial feedback I got, is that currently Fujifilm plans a major Fujifilm X-T3 firmware update in spring 2019.

It should go well beyond the removal of the 4GB recording limit, hence there is hope we will be able to call it a big Kaizen firmware update. [UPDATE: the 4GB record limit will be removed with X-T3 fimrware 2.10 on February 7. The spring firmware should bring other improvements]

I’ll keep you posted as soon as I get more details, so make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed and Twitter

Fujifilm X-T3 vs Olympus E-M1X vs Fujifilm GFX 50R Specs and Size Comparison

In a few hours, Olympus will officially announce the Olympus E-M1X.

The full specs are already leaked at 43rumors, and always 43rumors spotted here that Apotelyt has already put Olympus upcoming flagship in their database.

Hence, you can now compare its size to other cameras, for example the Fujifilm X-T3 or the Fujifilm GFX50R.

You can see the size comparisons after Apotelyt’s list of reason why to get the Fujifilm X-T3 over the Olympus E-M1X and vice versa.

Reasons to prefer the Fujifilm X-T3:

  • More detail: Has more megapixels (26 vs 20.2MP), which boosts linear resolution by 16%.
  • Better image quality: Features bigger pixels on a larger sensor for higher quality imaging.
  • Richer colors: Larger pixels generate images with better, more accurate colors.
  • More dynamic range: Capable of capturing a wider spectrum of light and dark details.
  • Better low-light sensitivity: Can be used in poorly lit environments and still produce good images.
  • More detailed viewfinder: Has higher resolution electronic viewfinder (3690k vs 2360k dots).
  • Larger screen: Has a bigger rear LCD (3.2″ vs 3.0″) for image review and settings control.
  • More compact: Is smaller (133x93mm vs 144x147mm) and will fit more readily into a bag.
  • Less heavy: Has a lower weight (by 458g or 46 percent) and is thus easier to take along.
  • Faster data transfer: Supports a more advanced USB protocol (3.1 vs 3.0).
  • More affordable: Was introduced into a lower priced category (50 percent cheaper at launch).
  • More heavily discounted: Has been on the market for longer (launched in September 2018).

Advantages of the Olympus OM-D E-M1X:

  • High quality composites: Can combine several shots after pixel-shifting its sensor.
  • More flexible LCD: Has swivel screen for odd-angle shots in portrait or landscape orientation.
  • More selfie-friendly: Has an articulated screen that can be turned to be front-facing.
  • Faster burst: Shoots at higher frequency (18 vs 11 flaps/sec) to capture the decisive moment.
  • More portrait friendly: Features an integrated vertical grip for easier portrait shooting.
  • Longer lasting: Can take more shots (870 versus 390) on a single battery charge.
  • Sharper images: Has hand-shake reducing image stabilization built-in.
  • More modern: Is somewhat more recent (announced 4 months after the X-T3).

Eye AF Compared: Fujifilm X-T3 vs Sony a6400 vs Sony a9 vs Sony a6500 vs Sony a7R III by Tony Northrup

Fuji vs Sony

It looks like Sony raised the bar once again, when it comes to eye-AF and AF-tracking.

Tony Northrup compared the eye-AF of the brand new Sony A6400, with the one of the Fujifilm X-T3, Sony A6500, Sony A9 and Sony A7rIII. He moved very harshly and pushed the magic eye-AF algorithms of the different cameras to their limits. Here are his results.

  • Fujifilm X-T3 – 24% in focus
  • Sony a6500 – 37% in focus
  • Sony a7RIII – 60% in focus
  • Sony a6400 – 98% in focus
  • Sony a9 – 100% in focus

Sony’s eye-AF also works from more distance to the subject than Fuji’s.

So, Fuji, time to work on the next Kaizen firmware update to catch up ;) .
