Fujifilm Q1 FY 2019/3 Financial Results: Upfront R&D Investment for Fujifilm X-T3, GFX 50R and GFX 100S Stops Operating Income Grow

Fujifilm Financial Results for FY2019/3 1st Quarter

Fujifilm just published the 1st quarter results for the Financial Year 2019. Fujifilm confirms to be a healthy company, but the overall operating income in the imaging solutions segment went down 2.2%…

due to such factors as upfront R&D investment for next generation processor and sensor for digital cameras and others.”

Of course they mainly refer to the Fujifilm X-T3 and the Fujifilm GFX 100S, which will both feature a new sensor and new processor, but also the Fujifilm GFX 50R medium format camera (coming at Photokina this year) might have needed a major R&D investment.

Regarding the FUJIFILM X-H1 and FUJIFILM X-T100, in one report they write that sales were “solid” and in another report they write sales were “strong“.

Fujifilm Registeres One More Camera. Total of 3 Unreleased Cameras Registered. Fujifilm X-T3, GFX 50R and XF10?

Upcoming Fujfilm Cameras

Fujifilm just registered one more camera, the FF 180004, that has the same radio parts of the Fujifilm X-H1 and X-E3 (registration here – via nokishita)

So we now have three unreleased cameras registered, that should be announced by the end of this summer:

  • FF 180002: Camera similar in size to Fujifilm X70. Very likely the Fujifilm XF10. To be announced July 5.
  • FF 180003: Camera with bluetooth version 4.2. We reported here.
  • FF 180004: Camera with radio parts like Fujifilm X-H1 and X-E3.

The two registered cameras could be Fujifilm GFX 50R and Fujifilm X-T3.

“Kaizen? Other Companies Want Cameras to be Like Toilet Paper, But Not Fujifilm.” Will Fujifilm Rise Up to the Top with GFX 50R? – JChristina

Fujifilm – The Dark Horse Mirrorless Camera Wars?

Yes I know, it might seem strange to write a pro-Kaizen article right after Fujifilm pulled off the massive X-T2 firmware because it was faulty. Fujifilm did earn quite some attacks becasue of this, and some are making fun out of this situation.

So maybe Fujifilm should do it like any other brand: do not offer any major firmware update at all, only mini bug-fix updates, so they will avoid attacks.

Or maybe not… maybe Fujifilm should continue to deliver huge firmware updates for older cameras like they did over the last 6+ years. And in all these years I remember I think 2 or 3 rollback firmware updates overall.

Well, I gladly accept the remote possibility of a buggy firmware, if what I get is years of excellent support for my cameras via firmware update.

And I know that overall, Fuji’s Kaizen approach is applauded by many, and today we would like to feature a video JCristina. He says about Kaizen:

  • Kaizen Firmware updates makes them stand out from Sony, Canon and Nikon. They don’t just fix things, but they give you more that extend the life of their cameras
  • Most camera manufacturers want their cameras to be like toilet paper. They want you to use it for a set period of time, throw them in the garbage and they buy another roll

JCristina continues by discussing Fuji’s decision to skip full frame and go directly medium format. Especially the Fujifilm GFX 50R will be a smart move to make Medium Format go mainstream.

  • They don’t play the full frame war. They have one of the best APS-C cameras on the market, and they went directly Medium Format
  • The Fujifilm GFX 50R will soon give you a medium format mirrorless option at the price of the Sony A9
  • Watch Fujifilm, and what happens after photokina, if they rise up to the top with that medium format GFX 50R

The Fujifilm GFX 50R will be announced at photokina at the end September (or shortly before).

The price for the Fujifilm GFX 50R has not yet been set, simply because this is about the last thing Fujifilm decides. Only one thing is sure: it will be significantly more affordable than the Fujifilm GFX 50S.

Fujifilm GFX 50R Announcement NOT in July / August, but Photokina (or shortly before). No Price Set at this Stage

Fujifilm GFX 50R

There is some confusion right now, when the Fujifilm GFX 50R will be announced. June, July, August… simply every date leaks all over the web, except for the correct one ;)

So we confirm again: the Fujifilm GFX 50R will be announced at photokina, or shortly before. And given that Photokina takes place end of September 2018…

Given that the announcement is not imminent, Fujifilm has not yet set a price on it, so at this stage everybody can claim and dream what they want. The only thing we know, is that it will be cheaper than the Fujifilm GFX 50S.

Fujifilm GFX 50R: Concepts of the Most Affordable Digital Medium Format Camera Ever!

It’s no secret anymore that Fujifilm is about to launch the Fujifilm GFX 50R, a much cheaper and rangefinder alike version of the Fujifilm GFX 50S.

Since we shared the first rumor back in December and the latest rumor just last week, our terrific Fujifilm GFX facebook group members not only started dreaming about it, but also designed some concepts.

One of them is Mario C. who made 2 Fujifilm GFX 50R mock-ups (and GFX 100R) I will share in this article. He writes:

“Two ideas for a future Fujifilm GRX. The 100RD rangefinder or the 100XD viewfinder. Both with large LCD touch screen and DIGITAL LCD Dials. Price $2995. Would you like any of these cameras to become a reality? Which one? The RD or the XD?Digital LCD dials are fully programmable. Rotate to change the value. Push and rotate to change the control. Push once to go to a favorite value, push twice to go to another favorite… Etc.”

And remember, tomorrow, April 12, there will be a NON STOP LIVE BLOGGING here on FujiRumors, covering the launch of the Fujinon GF250mmF4 (& more). Stay tuned… and be ready to be blown away by its image quality ;)

Fujifilm X and GFX Deals are Back for Holiday Season

Fuji Deals are Back

The Fujifilm X and GFX camera and lens deals expired last week, and they are back this week already.

I guess Fujifilm realized, that it was not a very smart move to end the deals right before the X-mas holiday season, and decided to extend them.

Some deals are now even better. For example you now save $200 on the X-T20 instead of $150.

For now I have no indication how long they will run, but I guess Fujifilm will end them along with the Fujifilm X-T3 deals and Fujifilm GFX 50R deals, hence on December 29.
